Daily Talk Show Episode 264 it's fat Fridays.
Yeah, we hardly got through anything. We've got this ginormous pizza in front of us. It's 40 inches. It's fucking ginormous. And this is not a plug for the person that made this. When I won't even say that name. Don't What do you actually think so? It was what do you think of this pizza?
I there was good. It was literally like 1234 pizzas in what it's essentially like four pizzas. I'm fucking I've got this meat sweats. I'm, I'm sorrowful
and then I just drink
one slice or two slides. I had one do you have to not one
sweat would be from to the problem with having I know we keep opening it the problem with the way and go to their YouTube channel if you actually want to say it. The
so we did a video if you're listening, we've done a video that is at the start of this video on our YouTube channel. The The thing is that the concern I have is I like to have multiple flavors. And so you're faced with you want to try three flavors, you're eating three pizzas, or he did ask me Do you want to come to me to cut this up for you? And I said no, because it takes away from the
Why do you want me saying that they only do one a day.
It's just a rule across all stores. It's only one pizza per day. And
this is the thing I've got such food regret because I feel sick.
I eating something like this. It's a great idea. Great gimmick. There is so many gimmicks that businesses come up with. I mean our show has a lot of gimmicks. It's a gimmick, but there's so many gimmicks for like we had a party at for my mates 21st birthday, we had the meter long subway roll.
And I'm thinking it's going to be too long. So that would be how many six feet so to me
that's 200 centimeters.
So it's quite long legs probably Yeah, its massive but he got a whole bunch of them they cut them up it doesn't come out as some fucking
yeah fuck I remember when I was a kid the banana split they were doing the world's longest Banana Split at in in Beverly Hills. And the thing I was expecting one fuck off massive like this is the biggest banana I've ever seen. But the way they did it was yet very small silver trays all lined
up. Do you think it actually so Hulk smash who's been on the show? Friend of his show competitive Vader shout out to Hulk he goes to these places and a lot of the time I've seen videos where he's not getting paid but what he does is he goes to some place and his five kilogram fo it's 50 bucks but if you eat it within 20 minutes you get it for free
so I mean he's eating for free so
well it's a good like the promote the marketing behind it works when you get a guy like that right get you get some are that one some gimmick pizza on their on their podcast? Yeah. I just wonder how I wonder if it makes sense from a business like what's the reliable gimmick for for our business? big media company?
What's a gimmick like resume videos like we'll do your resume video if you're going for a job maybe but Mr. 97 was asking me earlier inside out he wanted to know what other dumb shoes that have been bought like that I've bought in my lifetime because it's been a sort of a bit of a pattern actually
dangerous Mr. 1970s Mrs. is here
Yeah, so that I've ever do that. I put a bit of a list together.
The big one was a county
which is just roll right roar but it was probably 2008 or nine
or it sorry not at the moment you're talking in general just dumb purchases in life. Oh yeah.
Not at the moment. No, no, no,
I'm going back far. Are you going anti minimalist? No no.
nibs from 22,008 I bought a kilo of them and because I thought I saw someone doing a podcast without like a video show it was dick nation back in the day. Yeah. And they had like chocolate coated nibs and I'll fucking eating and they look delicious. And so I'm like, you know what? I'm gonna be healthy. I'm going to buy them and that was shit. They just tasted like fucking It was like, I thought that that sent me gravel.
Yeah, well, it is hundred percent. All chocolate that's lost the sugar content and the flavor is a county. It's like the good thing. There is something sort of like we watching that you like I love watching food video.
and then that go with the assignee ball. I was like there's something that sort of like
things that I
kind of healthy. Sorry balls. I don't believe that you kind of it's almost like you found a leukemia. sighs not in health. Definitely not healthy with the sugar content, because
I worked at a cafe in Bondi and we used to sell a bit Bondi Asahi balls, like very trendy around there. They were frozen packets of frozen. Yeah, so it's like a mess blended up big on a big scale. And then they pour into these things. Shoot so much sugar content, that shit sugar. I mean, probably sugar from the fruit but also added sugar. And then you put orange juice apple juice into the blender, you put some other
job I'm sure we'll look back at that, like birthdays to have so many boost juices and
general knowledge. Do you know you might have listened? I listened to a podcast years ago, like years and years ago. Maybe small business big marketing. Yeah. Timber, right. He's talking to the guy that brought in the SI R is it's like a it was a Brazilian
summer. Fruit when you when you think that like there's actually people who bring in the specific like, imagine if you're the first person to import apples into Australia. That's pretty crazy.
What are they doing?
Yeah, I mean, you're talking long time ago and now we're here. But like the
time where it's like have you tried those new things like once? Yeah,
the first time of anything.
Like it's off the record right it's like milking a cow with
the first person to milk a cow This is the freak
roast gonna go smarty.
The first. The first how the fact this sounds so damn, how the fuck
do we work it I had this moment. The other day. I'm like, I'm talking to you. And you're totally understanding what I'm saying. And someone has invented every one of these words that come up with and the sound and the hum of my voice in a certain way.
Does that not creep you every of everyone is moving to like how these words you understand these words? How the sometimes you don't have the fastest time he doesn't say my sign.
Language is like the vibration of the amount its
vibration math is you shit Well yeah, like you might like Chinese or whatever. Mandarin it's all that it's the another tones or something? Well,
okay, random random what's up Mr. 97
laughing is I'm not getting ready person. No in person. I don't fish.
What How about this?
I have a baby with me
wedding Simon. I have a wife for hit on the top of that.
If I mean I have another baby. We say here.
Mrs. Someone from over in China. Okay, take take our new boy. And that boy grows out there. He's downloading Chinese into his head like Oh, he downloaded. So what's the point so you're giving your baby away? Australian born, but then he's first language just based on where he is. He speaks
Chinese, which is weird because his
body's already saying words. He's just mimicking but he's understanding and connecting with smart factors
guess it would be you wouldn't get to see him very much like the next little kid. That was the case I'd
rather shoot if I was giving
it away just for the sake of saying if you could download China
that happened with
the boy and Free Willy wasn't a adopted godfather. Producer. Directors for really good film. I want to have that. Like, I'm sure that there was a lot of animal animals sort of cruelty going. I can't wait. So we're video in these episodes. I cannot wait till we can bring up there's a movie called Swiss Family Robinson. My favorite film as a kid. They get shipwrecked on an island, Disney film. Animals are everywhere they build these tree houses is unbelievable. It's like a fucking dream come true for child's imagination.
one of them guys riding a zebra. They like you know, doing the most inhumane Wow, Amy, he's one of them riding in a mute Is that you? You couldn't get away with that shit. I remember
I went to conference in Indonesia was in Sarah Byam and we therefore I was friend Varsha. And so it was all the Indonesian designers and developers anyway, they went to it was all they were doing all local tourist sort of stuff. And one included going to a zoo. And the thing is that it's like not an official set. Like it's a zoo, their style and Indonesian style zoo. It's like It's like they got a chain. You got a zoo? Well, yeah, you said yeah, it's like a cockatoo like you'd see like a science I gotta say the cockatoo and you said it looks like it's been fucking smuggled in through someone's bang and some like
oh my god look
like get a Florida
what's the I feel like you're more sensitive about it. The sitting on top of the
elephant. I didn't
know Yeah, but I feel like you're maybe it's like you do what you feel more sense even. And you can relate more whereas I'm like, those things are fucking strong. If they if they kept like they really well traded, which I'm sure some of them are some of them
some of them but do you feel like he's it just across the board now it's like sitting on a couch sitting on an elephant's no go
Yeah, I think so. Unless you're like some sort of tribes person who don't like I didn't know they doing that shit in Africa. I'm sure it shorts a motor transport. Somewhere in the world. Do you reckon? Maybe similarly to in Australia, kangaroos.
Where they people think it is 100% I reckon there is some sort of native tribe that has a elephant they might like they're very smart. They're smarter than you and I
had a camels or another one as well.
Cam Yeah. camels are misunderstood.
watching a video on that the other day Yeah, I actually didn't realize the extent of
I'd never seen camels like that before I'd always seen them as this sort of just like a camel yeah if I can spit in a all that sort of shit you ride on the bus watching a video where it's like these fucking camels have little personalities Yeah,
the fact that camels man
talking about importing and the new new ingredients and items and shit produce in the way we had my water bottle in shot yeah on the first episode and it looked like shape
Yeah, it's actually if I put that that'd be
the no i Garcia Cambodia. You know what it is?
This is another great link back to your purchases for Yeah,
I I read a
men's health what I thought was a men's health article about what Hugh Jackman what supplements he took to get jacked.
Yeah, he was ripped he's he's strong I
was like $40 or whatever for certain amount of supplement it's like if you actually just want to get it so that you have enough for like six months it was like 270 bucks a month seems like a good deal. So I ended up with destiny Cambodia, which I've watched Dr. Rawls talk about how it like helps you lose weight.
and the other thing was like,
before you got it. Did you know what it actually did for you?
Yeah, so I'm like this one loses like
legs wide on your neck.
lesion fruit Okay, so that's the selling point so that's a nomination fruit it was enough for me and then there was another one just called test Oh strong. And then it wasn't sounds like the real deal and it was like to increase your testosterone or something funky that
probably would have been legit But
no, not at all. So I ended up with it for so long, just like a cabinet full of the supplements like I can't believe you look at people and say how do you how did you fall for the Nigerian prince? Like this? Don't far off I'm sure fucking a Nigerian prince was involved.
I think what about and I know if you're watching and you're into network marketing, good, good few. What so
what are the top network marketing? So Isagenix?
What's Isagenix? Isagenix is another powder pills and potions. And then Herbalife is another one. Great documentary on that? Yes.
What is it cold?
Herbalife document selling short or thing? can remember. It's like the fact you told me you
told me to watch it.
because what they're doing these beyond so the My problem with the network marketing is that they're selling to you Josh
as someone who is dealt with white now looking great. But if you want to keep that, like there's an emotional time that they get to
the products that they've got,
why the fuck is it every single person in the world using that single product?
It can't be even bullshit.
What's like what everyone drinks it, because the thing is, you need it. You needed these things, and it did what they kind of sell it into do,
then why wouldn't everyone have it? That's my only issue with
the manipulation and
45 not a Ponzi scheme. However Bry was telling me it's like oh, yeah, when you take you before and after photos, there's like a thing that says that they can use it for marketing purposes. Go fuck it. I hope so. Because I was like, absolutely not fuck that.
lost a bunch of white out one that fact talking about losing white and also like, I've bought a lot of things around sort of white loss and health. But one of them was had good intentions. It was dynamic, dynamic. duo, sort of like a imagine Hello Fresh, but frozen. And it was all like pre made meals.
I said, Yeah, there's a bunch of companies
5.4 so we did dynamic. The problem is that we got all these soups and shit. But they're all too big for the fucking microwave. And so what happened is out, you would get them frozen. You put them in the microwave, it would turn it would unfreeze and fall over and the suit would go everywhere. Literally like that was me for a week of like doing this thing was fucking cleaning.
is almost shaped by
the way we are
set up. It's meant to go in
the microwave. Yeah, it was meant meant to be able to turn the top right, because it had like sort of a little bit of a fat. Yeah, fat bottom. That's fact
so the cold thing. I mean, we've pretty much locked off five people for our
yes squeegee kheiron call Yeah, if you're not aware we set up a we did a call out late last year.
That feels like so far away. But I was only like three weeks ago.
but don't even know I think it was this year. When you were like I want to call it I've got this coin. I've pretty much bought it.
And then so I'm in this movement. Let's create a coin for ourselves. And then we brainstormed it came out with a squeegee ways you can raise raisins that was it we're getting him out and you guys you said five of these we're going to give away which we haven't had the made yet because we're going to cap it out at certain amount but we got solid locked in first five for the crew. We're going to work out
what we're going to do with how we're going to open it up again. Yeah, Gabby our member she's in Canada. She's got a squeegee she's in Roscoe one can't remember what Yeah,
we'll do a full rate out of wine wine as well.
we've done the reverse What do you call it the reverse?
You know how you What do you call it you get all the money and then you go into production
crowdfund, we've done the reverse crowdfund we got the
people saying yes and now we're going to name we're going to do it but we've received no money and we not receive it we don't receive any money it's not too far off and so we are going to get these out my my ID Josh is to have which Mr. 97 said 3d printed 3d print we should get my blog
to do this because hey, he can do that shit I feel like you need to send them back and stuff. But we also need a workout how to do the daily talk show if we can actually get it into the
like caffeine. I mean 3d printing you can do a gun if you can do a gun you can do a squeegee with a fucking little
we can we do a little after my show it can actually aftermarket
aftermarket because it's not gonna print out the rubber but if you had the bid and then we bought like a rubber stripping we cut it put it on like it when wiper blade we can slice up that's a fucking good it's a very tough very tough you know have any more of these pieces because we have we spent 15 years we spent 50 bucks on this thing with what are we going to do with the rest we can't like we need to do something we need to give it someone we've got to walk around so as I got this and I as I'm walking even in Richmond people like whoa look at that. And then down the stairs here the office there's cafe
well look at that. It's easy easy to impress
you know the food the food shit is
buying dumb food stuff I feel like I'm quite quite prone to I literally did on the one time I bought from the there was the one do you
think we're legit doing Brian stones for serious client work.
For from afar, the thing about a whiteboard you saved from the distance and enlightened stuff going on. There you go. If you did the download to your head, dumb shit I've bought. Clap, clap up. So the clap
clap was a slight like a clap a board. I got it from a baby. This would have been 2004 2005.
I was a young kid. I wanted to have like a Universal Studio clappers. I could go you know, take one and bought it. And the fucking thing I wasn't used to the internet. Yeah. And what they'd sold me was they just made it themselves out of wood. And it was like miniature the way they took the fucking photo look full size. I just remember like nagging my mom to go to the post office because I need to collect it. And then I did the same thing again with the microphone where I bought a microphone. I was expected to be like this size, like a normal microphone size. And it was like a quarter of the size. It was like a tiny microphone.
This is why people don't shop online. I mean there's a bunch of other do
haven't done a shitload of shopping online. And I'm not I'm not over here saying shop local. No, I was I love a fucking bag. And that comes from online. But this this is the problem you can get fully trolled, but I just love like I've always had a soft spot for buying shit online. Much like fuck, I just remembered something that I did buy online that would have been early, early, early days. Yeah, would have been like oh five or 1015. And because I had I just remember the website and out and had like it As Seen on TV. It was called a classic TV be gone. And it was a key ring that I could point it at any TV and turn it off. And it worked work. So I wouldn't go along the street at night. And I would see if I can TV in through the windows. That's you know, we're just like hold it there and fucking to say and then you would same fucking turn it back on that we
It's a little bit of that vibe watching that.
And did you ever own Eliza? Oh,
my first interaction with like a few interactions over my time. I was obsessed. The moment my uncle Rob showed me one Funny thing is I live in the street where I first had my laser interaction
so distracted I leave that's not impressive. You lived in the straight way.
Call it fate
living there at the time. No, no. Okay,
it was a child right? Like you had it where you live now
where I live now. four doors down was a restaurant. And what was it called? can remember some old break fishing fish restaurant closed down because the salmonella is like what you without really raising a close dude, they fucking got done by the department. We survived it though. So we got this light. He had this laser. Here at the front. He's having a diary. And he's pointing over this laser that he got from Bali and he's pointing at a crossroad we get all across the road. So that was my first into it and then you seven big into them buying
them where do would you actually buy them from?
You know, those like, tobacco shops is like sort of gimmick shops. There was a bunch of them. Don't sell them everywhere now. But my mate so they like the baby one. Have you ever played with the fucking like a legit
laser like high powered burn? Like burn your
skin was like burn paper? probably hard to tell because I didn't do stupid shit with it. But it was an island Thailand, okay. And there was a lot of warnings on it. I was sick. I was doing so many happy with it. It was super long,
A bit quite narrow.
And so I was just pointing that she was so highly illegal. Like if you could go to jail if you showed that in someone's eyes. You can I can take it at my mind. crafty fuck. Dad bought online the bits, different bits. So it came all in like different. Yeah. transactions. And he constructed this laser. And he pointed this thing to them. We got it. We're out in the moon like an outside
Yeah, this coming to you live from the moon. We were pointing it at the moon. It legit look like it touched the moon like it. It went it went so far, I can't even It was so bizarre.
So designing the moon.
From what it is appeared the illusion that it cast was pushing it and pressing it towards the moon. It just went all the way through
it look like it never stopped. But you could see the.on
the moon would mean that you can't see the laser that's being beamed so I can see. Because what we could see was this beam of laser through the sky. So if you hold an angle, you just seeing it never end. So gave the illusion that when they went to the moon, but you can fully take down planes and shoot with them. It's fucked.
Don't don't buy that actually, the The other thing that's an extension on to lasers is firecrackers. And I got a kid whose dad was actually in a firefighter. He had a hookup of firecrackers. Okay, an inside job. Yeah, I bought like a bunch. It was like the only time I ever did it was great. It was in I put it in like a coin. Like, you know, like a traditional, you're at a market selling and you have like a cash register thing like a money box. But it's got a key. And I put them all in there. And I just used to love sniffing you know, love sniffing things. I was fucking sniffing I love the smell. But I remember my dad found him. And he said, if you're going to keep these, we need to make sure they're okay. With such a bullshit.
That mean let's go let them all he wants to let him off.
And so he like Richie. So he got the fucking gotta burn two bricks. He put the bricks down. He put the firecracker on it and then lit it. And then as he lit it fucking exploded was like,
yeah, that was so they were fired.
And because the other thing was that I think that one was one that my brother got from this like, Dude that he was working with who was like 60 something years old who had had it for 30 years. Yeah. And so it's like, the kids got to be a little bit fuckin Fox.
Way back in the day there was
the laws of this is pre 911 Super loose. Like traveling was so fucking loose.
I actually have been in a cockpit when I was a kid. Yeah, went in a cockpit going to like Hamilton Island or whatever. That was a feeling your pencils and shit. And like don't go up and say the, the pilot so
yeah, so I did that on the way over to Bali and mom and dad. I mean, whether they here they let us we brought back I brought back a rifle. It was a BB gun is like a cock damn rifle. But these little pellets in we put in the surfboard bag. And it was like a lot. It was low power, but it's still it's illegal. But no parent
like what was your parents conversation about you bringing it back?
Well, I think I think you'd have a baby again. Would you? Yeah.
How could that end? Shouldn't shit shoot. In fact in little bits and bobs around the house, we couldn't be trusted in the wall like I did. I have to accept that I will at some point receive the the conditioning out of this gronk have gronk Kids potentially and sorry mom and dad then also, we brought back some fireworks. There was some ones called goon leaves, which were like sticks of dynamite.
so dangerous. We brought back
but we got him through this is the thing he did back in the day. You could get contraband through drugs.
boogie board full of way. My parents wouldn't even allow us to have a dart board because of the daily. Yeah, because I'm the one we're in marine below one time it's just like anything. My brother's doing stuff like I hit my brother with a golf club. Yeah, we were playing golf because he was cheating you legit? Yeah, that's fine. It was
gronk move. Yeah.
But the thing was mom and dad were like out to dinner like they had one night where these people were like they were holidaying their kids and they said look we can look after you boys like you go away anyway, they mom and I got a call halfway through just being like a one of your son's hit the other son with a golf club. Mom was so angry. She said it was so embarrassing that they couldn't have dinner without me hitting James at the golf club. says a lot It was the worst injury that you ever caused.
another I would just want to ask you about the growing up thing. Go were you allowed out like
Are you allowed by yourself down to the park and now I would have been too scared. You were too scared or you weren't like you were restricted
now definitely it didn't never felt like I could eat what I want
at home. Okay to stay indoors.
Like we got mum sort of created a place that was fucking cool to Hang Hang and I think
I was listening to a podcast recently with this guy talking about how important is for kids to be able to go out by themselves so it's like giving the trust in them so I asked you do you let out of because there's a man like we're living in a culture where people are very scared to let their kids at
us for saying that there was a book that I want to read where there's an issue in Japan where people aren't leaving the house and socializing it's it's massive I sit and
listen to it I think childhood running around just being a madman skies already
straight rat and I wish there was other straight kids that were more straight ready like no curfew so mom and dad let me Yeah, but the the danger of not like and I think about as a parent going fuck it What if the kid gets taken but what this guy was saying was the danger is understandable of letting your kid out to the park where he gets taken the detriment of having a kid inside like not your situation you self diagnose
having to being inside and not letting you go outside. You can't see the effects it's having on your child. Whereas you see the effects it becomes over the fucking broken out which is like sending alarm bells. Yeah,
never again. Did you When was the first time you went on a train?
grade six grade five I can't run away once grade 615
Wow. So because because there was no input but mom would drive pretty far from the train station and mom would drive us everywhere you want to go somewhere mom would drive I guess that's a good wife.
I say this now like about the lake is that it's
such it would be so different when buddies Can I go to the Skype ball with Trevor and Travis Mike bongs and all that
is $45 torture high fidelity talk show.com if you want to send us an email if you got any suggestions of where we we should have fat Friday next week should we ate Yeah, I think we should do Mexican Cantina at some point.
