How restrictive -- richer lives. You know security agent and even our product actually you're talking about to have somebody stand up there a picture you. In that group to document any kind of event and he can do well. Some idiot text in. And I say that because that recognized an average Jordan did it our producer there's been would have done a -- -- of him and Mona Lisa. He probably would have. -- I just a case -- just because you can why do you.

Nobody but seriously when it comes to social media and people sometimes hanging other people in photos that don't like it is. I mean do you do as anybody is at a normal maybe that's a question and I hate to be photographed I despise it -- used it. The camera and I do not get along in any way. And while I'm Hartley handsome in life it's a lot better than when I'm photographed.

If it's cold medicine and taken maybe and just a big fat hypocrite but I was thinking. About. Not wanting to. You have my picture taken and I was also thinking about. Not bothering celebrities with getting their picture taken with a result that proves. Is that you've wasted their time for a couple of minutes but I went back. And elected mind. Twitter history and I realize that on Emmett Smith's birthday. I tweeted a picture of myself with him saying happy birthday and it. And I remembered when the Super Bowl was in town and we were all over at the conventions that are. How I wanted pictures of all of these NFL grades. So sometimes I forget things and that those are one of things Africa. So low. -- what's the most famous celebrity you've ever had your picture taken with all by the way one afternoon.

Weigh in on a lot of the topics that we've had we started with. Stay in France with your acts Jim Hansen had a story on that. And whether or not that's possible we had a pretty jaguar opinion it'll go on for a long time and about 65%. On the Everett that no league they it's not a good idea you can't stay friends with your. Backs. And I think it is extremely. Difficult to do that is specially. If it wasn't mutual is if it was a mutual and one person was still hopelessly helplessly over heels in love any other person moved on. Then maybe the person and moved on. Can be friends but I don't think the other person. Candy because. Inevitably I think jealous he's gonna rear its ugly head it's going to be overly what are you doing now Hillary's hand. And then you start. Think in -- can be mean what about week now so I don't think that can happen but if you have kids he do you have to at least remain. How polite and co parent the children but you tell me what you think that we talked about the difference between raising boys and girls. What are the differences I'd love to hear from -- on that and which do you think are easier to successfully see through to adulthood. And does it matter if you're. A man or woman in your family is dead closes the -- -- is a girls urges the opposite. And his mom closes the girls. And years since the boys. Or just the opposite only have one child. A daughter in and the relationship we have is now it's so neat to meet a watch it because. You parents know it goes from from evident baby in this -- yet to take care of to a toddler that you really have a hard time controlling and then at some point they begin to be little people. Where he can actually converse with a man as they. Much Ricki -- through life and get older now and approaching eighteen you can almost. Have. Relationship like you would with -- another adult so I think that's pretty cool you tell me though. And then we talked about crime cameras and Amanda -- City Council. They decided to puts them in at the lake -- some public parks and other gathering places. Would you be willing to give up some privacy in order to be safer. And I think it's a good idea if you could do it properly because I think you'd be able to get by with less police officers. And I think we also could could prevent crimes before they happen. And it hasn't tax than ever did I get to -- in terms of that from. Why would cameras. Keep criminals from acting out if they didn't care about it. About the consequences of their crime and I think it would because. The police to be a position to prevent the crime from even happening. Whether a person cares about it or not of the police are on it before it happens. That means less some less crime at least to me. From one of the -- they come in. About the cameras is well my issue with the cameras is simple we as a society are already rapidly losing all privacy. It's another step towards having no privacy whatsoever this Big Brother at its worst. I feel like reliving out of judge in George Orwell's 1984. But again if you will and they oppose sell -- and update everybody on the Internet about. What your activities are how you're kinda destroying your own privacy would seem like. And the other side of it is. If you decide to do business online or engage in anything on the Internet garlands on tonnage shipped tons of shows about this. It means that for the most part your privacy. Has already been compromised. And then there's this about pictures of celebrities with respect to celebrities and athletes. It's part of their job to reach out to the public can take pictures. And spent a little time with their public. But not of course when they're doing private business owner of the grocery store having there hair done etc. I would like to know moon isn't okay to go -- a celebrity for a picture if you pay money to see their movies pay money to see him play. Get -- kind of owe you a picture. Now when it comes a girls and boys girls are easier to body train. And easier to discipline in -- a picture -- opinion. Moment says no manpower always monitor cameras well he if you get higher five people and do away with some squad cars I think you would.
