8:10 am
happened. >> do you know when the world will end. >> yeah but i'm not telling. >> can i get a warning. >> i will tell you throw me a bone. >> about 7 billion years from now. >> 7 billion. >> it used to be nine but now seven. >> yes, getting closer. >> there we go. >> okay, i got to get the door. >> you go get the door good we are doing a special guest, every day. >> happy 20th. >> thank you, derek. >> so mike has been our official welcomer. >> door opener. >> he is so pleasant. >> here we go. >> my goodness. >> my gosh, buzz ald theron. >> how are you, i'm mike. >> how are you, buzz. >> i came from that planet that is coming in.
