Daily Talk Show Episode 372 What's going on guys? I'm a little bit upset because I've walked in a three day deal. What he described as a compliment has said that I look like a dad today.
Yeah, look, when you have to ask if something was a compliment or not. It's not a it's not a compliment. So what was the
what was the?
What was the words that came out of your mouth?
I said, Josh, you look very. I didn't say Daddy, but you look like a dad today.
Yeah. Is that like, what is it the male paternal paternal motto?
I couldn't I don't know why.
You'd said that. It's it was just Is it the short slaves in winter? It's the short sleeves and winter the jeans and the cotton and the hat. You look like just a very well put together dad that's about to take his his two young daughters to go fishing. And then maybe on the way home, they're going to get an ice cream.
If if he looks like the Dad, what do I look like? You look like the baller dad.
Yeah. Which is that that's
I mean, that is I mean that is it. You're the one that's got the vortex
Yeah, well, some people don't.
Even I had a vortex or not a vortex remember the vortex?
I took it more metaphorically. Speaking of the vortex around me. That sucks. Did you ever have a vortex? I did. I did. I am we still hit the summer. hit the beach in summer throwing the vortex they float which is great. So just be nailing that thing far as we could on on the weekend. I'm still scarred from it.
No, I two people.
They made it was a similar thing. They made a statement.
Not a compliment. It's like when people say oh, yeah, your little podcast. So sort of showing their cards to say
in fairness know someone did say oh you little podcast about and paga Yeah. And we've la so it's a big paga No, but I think there is people don't i don't think people do that intentionally to bring people down. I think they just say
we're just a little insecure babies. Yeah,
I think we can and any of these things you choose to take it unless you saying you look like a piece of shit. That's a real negative you can then interpret what I've said to you in a certain
way because when you say
daddy straight away go to dad borrowed a Do you?
Yeah, I don't. I don't. But this is what I mean. You're into it.
Why do I look? I look like the dad who not only takes the kids fishing, but we have to get nice cream afterwards. Why do we have to wait? Yeah. What? Why?
It's just when
was it if you have a daughter does that mean? I have cold balls?
What was it? I can't remember home balls are called both.
Once again. Thank you.
It was on a previous show. We're talking I think both I think footy players have worn balls. So they have girls. Yes.
So it's actually so it's a sort of a compliment because it means I'm a
Yeah. Chris Josh. Chris Jada fully fully pie and we've got someone who loves Chris Josh in the house. How many does he have girls? How many? One One girl two boys so Wombles called both. Yeah, he's got by. I have one balls and cold balls. When I have another child. I'd like to have a girl girl love to have a girl. I think it's soften me up a bit. Right now main body or just taking over the world. But back to the back to the neg that I interpreted as a negative It was about
my hair. Is that what an egg means? If you say is it an egg,
I'm nagging you. I'm being negative towards you. shaking. So it was kind of so I saw this girl that I hadn't seen while she was there with the boyfriend. I was there with conspiracy Jimmy and she says
I she said something. She's like, I can't like something around, I can't come
get over to man band
or something like that. Okay. And I looked at a boyfriend and I said a compliment.
She said, No, she fucking does that all the time. So she does that sort of like statement that is basically
but today so she doesn't like it.
From the discussion with a boyfriend and it's been fucking long going to the Da Vinci Code we worked at No, it was an egg. And then this other guy, this guy said. So I was I was with Ryan. JOHN has been on the show. And he's friend and Ryan Ryan said what do you think of Tommy's
hair? And he said,
Yeah, I actually quite like it. But it's very two years ago. Why did
mine even bring it up?
I was filming him and he had to just be talking and it was meant to be
definitely on his mind. I've got
it on camera
Really? is a bit then it's just like, does it make you insecure about Yeah. What does it look like with you had a fringe key to a fringe first right now? range? Yeah. I would like to say you on a fringe. Just like the opposite of it's the opposite of a man band. Really? Isn't it? Just bring an old forward? Oh, there's a lot of length there. Isn't there she is. What was the last time you had a
Last time we had a hiccup with us.
Last time I had. Hey, that's quite good. There we go.
Last last last time I had a hiccup was just before I went to meet you in New York City.
You look like is it Jared Leto.
Yes, we have longer hair
Jared Leto does
a guy who does Adobe tutorials. I also
look like the guy who's on Crime Stoppers who hangs around.
I think it looks good. Yeah.
Yeah. That's a that's a real compliment. You
know, I think it actually does look good. You know, he was talking yesterday about the older Jim. Jim. Shit, my anxiety with the gym.
breakdancing the membership No, but you know, you could actually just call up and say, I'm engine can I just like it just pushes it out. So you don't have to pay for a few months. To find your feet
then. Look at the records and see. So you haven't been here for four months anyway. Why are you calling us now? Now? I'm came to actually join? Yeah, Bry just cancelled her 45 I Really? Because she's rejoining her old gym. Oh, that's good field and function that she loves. Yeah. 45 she was like, just not that friendly. Like it's a very small like Collingwood. The least must be expensive. But it's so fucking small. It's like Besides this,
everyone's on top of each other. I saw a friend of mine over in Canada in 45 minutes way to Canada really good. There's like 1400 and 40 fives around the world.
That's crazy celebrity that's part of it.
I there's a bunch. There's a few Instagram is but Jeff Jarrett, who we've had on the show. He's my started.
It's crazy. Yeah. Anyway, but Bry couldn't just say I'm going to another gym. She created like another store. Okay, because she's all good about lady.
No, I get it. And when I was in shipping, and we did this. I was like, I made an announcement on a that. I've been I've been speaking on the people. You know, I've been looking at James James. And it was nothing to do with the gym. Because sometimes it's not. It's got nothing to do with the gym. It's just that I need a change of scenery. Bike break. Yeah. The next day, because obviously it's on the radio and the gym plays the radio station
that I worked for a change the station. I mean, and on the wall. There was a
And it was
to this song, baby, please don't go, baby, please don't go. But it was told me please don't go tell me. What do
you do in that scenario?
Because it's like, well, I found the the track because it was a blogger and I
all this content, and I never ended up moving. I don't know. I mean, maybe it was that. But it was lovely. It was like they actually liked me.
Well Bry said to them that they've my work is now offering free paid a
That's what she said. No, that's great. But then they said
they they fuckin like she did that online in a form thing or whatever, like to cancel on I think, but then this morning, they would like it that obviously read it and I can't That's amazing. Like, Where do you work? How many times a week?
I don't. I think they're probably giving friendly at that point.
But the thing is, they haven't even been that friendly. This whole like one of the big criticisms is that they're like, especially when it's someone who is like running the the place if the person who's running the place. Isn't that nice? It's sort of you never want to give your money to someone if you think that, of course. Yeah, of course not. And I didn't think that was that was that friendly?
But it said the the conversation she really had with him was the
echo. Yeah, but but then but Bruce had to Yeah, exactly. And then she had to make up this whole storey around, you know, what she was doing?
There's a real problem with businesses that attracting people in to contracts or just making it very hard. Like I think like even Adobe. Yeah, sorry. I was, Oh, my God, the sonnet. So, so it's more than the ones that I get it their business model is to create a freemium, freemium, so they month a month free and then you let me know after Yeah, sounds good. Yeah, I try it for a month. But I saw Amy she's like I've got YouTube right I am subscribed to you know, I just got the trials listening to something and I wanted to keep listen to you know, use their services. Outside of thing I can imagine your reaction because I feel like you're not the it's just like there's no such thing as a free trial none of it. It's exactly what happened with Stan we we heart We paid for. No, he signed up for Stan got the mic for a month. Forgot about
is anyone using? Is anyone paying for Stan and using Stan? No, Stan feels like it's one of those one.
What do you do it?
Well, where it's just, I just had stand for so long and wasn't using it. And then yeah, I'm pretty sure and because it's like standards like what's what cafes got? You know, you look at your credit card. Stand and then yeah, few seconds. But so
we forgot about standpipe for that. And I said to me, You can't do you got to get just but it was to be fair, YouTube is just on the app bomb bomb. No, thank you done.
Well, the thing is that the other risk with free trials is you get used to the lifestyle. That's what the that's what they're banking on. Isn't it? Well, because I mean, she gets used to not having ads. Yeah, because I heard that youtuber doing youtuber purpose really making putting more ads more sort of pre roll more mid roll. They're pushing ads as a way to try and squeeze people to say I can handle it in Yeah, if
it makes sense. But I mean, I use YouTube without I use YouTube with ads coming through. I'm I get through it. Mr. 97. Do you do it? I know you're a block. Give it so you don't pay for that. No, it's free. Yeah, so I've got a block too. But must it must be my phone that I'm getting them on? Yeah, I've got a block on my computer.
Yeah, I downloaded a modified version of YouTube that gets rid of the ads.
Of course you did. on your Android or whatever. Yeah, yeah. It's like a real fucking mini computer. That thing isn't it?
He's also the guy that got me through Harold sons paywall for free
what loader? what it was with loaded you use on your Android? launcher launcher. Thanks. It's
it's the default. One that
was a nova guide you remember never launch it? Yeah. Yeah, that was what I had on my Samsung Note three. And I went through a stage of like, I'm going to become an Android guy.
No, I don't. I want
I want actually, the Android guys are the same people who think it's a that made the clear PCs so they can have all the lights. For you know, it's I start off with the Android phone. And then I've got every Philips Hue has two different colours. The only
time it has and we endorse Android was when Mr. 97 uploaded the wrong audio for the podcast,
which only ever happened once. Yeah,
solid fixed, though. We were out on a shoot. And he's just jumped on to his handheld computer. And just simply prefer and got it
where it's done boys.
Got this? See how good that was?
The thing where he would have used these data and he said what do you what do you see data what's the up this bar but
I love it everybody get on the what's the other brand? What's the other machine used the telco network?
They really do.
This is what I'm saying. It's like bullshit. I get it that people think this, but there will be there has to be some limitations. Otherwise, why would anybody be on TV?
It's not a good thing to be on the network. You don't want to be on the you want to be on Telstra.
Yes. Yeah. The ones that do say I know I got the cheap one. But
are there any that say that they're on the Telstra network? Telstra?
Telstra on the infrastructure? Yeah, so
Boost Mobile or on their on Telstra? And maybe LD mobile? I'm not sure but we're always pushing.
I mean, this is the thing who was saying the Telstra recently? That's right.
Because Dan did the whole roommate site he has scripts that you can bring up your telco and get a better deal Yeah. And the thing is that they feels like there's notoriously like this notorious companies that perceived as premium and so for instance, Apple is one of them you can't go into like it's like whenever remember Dick Smith Smith German pretending to have a Tandy by Dick Smith Yeah, I always would go into Tandy an endeavour hills, and that is megaphone he. Can we get a megaphone? Everywhere a bunch of the radio shows in the US it's a very common thing. That's how they make the sound of is if they're on the phone. They use like a little Sure,
yes. Hey, like I've worked in radio we just use a radio a telephone
to be things that howard stern does it and then I think all of
us right? Yeah, it's tell you what when I was pissed, I was in drunk. really drunk. I was in Rome. I was travelling by myself. And this wasn't your honeymoon. No, no, this was when I was a 2011. Young, supple and looking for adventure and so on. I went to Rome by myself. And I was in this stains horsetail.
How many times did you say when in Rome?
It was one of my favourites enough I probably did say a few probably said it on the loudspeaker. I bought a fuckin a mini one. So you got these, these gipsies? Or you know these people had done by don't have they don't have jobs but they go they're selling the you know, there's there's always someone throwing something up in the air and it's colourful and it's coming down the line you want you want one five year old five year old anyway so how is wasted I bought him a mini megaphone so this is the little one and you press a button that makes this noxious fucking rain Oh Nana and then yeah, so I had this but i
i was so
small was it it was this big
the daily talk show merge Imagine if you could press it if we could put in like mp3 we have like they would have to be that would be a great one. Look it up I mean, this is how the squeegee thing came about.
Can you send a very annoying and noxious so so away? Yeah.
It was very on brand. I bought it last year
terrorising the straight
while Do you remember when I was in Rome? What happened? No. Which was this was only what I witnessed a car accident. I
met I and I ended up at the Christian
Yeah Is that wrong? That was in that was next to the
guy the cathedral
I'm such a fucking idiot I get all these great experiences I came with a part of the
city is its own state
Yeah, so for people who do
know a lot about I want she got
it was such a wasted experience on me because I had no idea who any of it that's the difference. I was like why they fucking mentioning all the Ninja Turtles. It's like because it's a lie. Yeah.
Any word on the megaphone? You can get Custom Printed ones but I'm just trying gonna find him sound on it. I think it's just normal.
What is a normal and not across the current rates of miniature megaphones?
Yeah, then they don't mean it and I ok.
Proper to this is the full noise.
Yeah, yeah. I'm just trying to find if we can actually put a custom soundhound Okay.
Because I'm imagining it. We want small it's an instal it on to have a big one. Yeah.
I mean, we could just buy them sticker sticker on them. Yes. Like, you could do that. You can get them off at ya, Ali Baba.
But when I was when I was saying was when I was in Rome, saw a car coming around a corner and slam into a parked car and continue driving. And I filmed I got my phone out and filmed it and got the number played. Anyway, like I could sneak Yeah,
people were yelling out at the building and I said I've got the footage or whatever they couldn't really speak much English and they came down and they will getting all the details are sending them on they said I'll do you want a tour of our radio studio. And it was like a Christian radio station. And so I got I got photos on the studio and it was
nice a nice
I got a pen gonna pay is
nine mega Christian dollars. Yeah. But ya know, I feel like when we're away overseas, probably more receptive to buying silly things.
Of course. When have you bought like three to do you've been you're a tourist in this country technically. That's not a great deal of you know, people selling shit on the streets in the city. To the extent that there is in Europe Europe's full Yeah,
it's it's different. Like I went to Queen Victoria market a few weekends ago and it was just looking scoping stuff out there. And nothing but that's different than selling stuff and like a bizarre on the street. Yeah, kind of a thing. Like
my best purchase was in what's called Central Park when we were in New York. Yeah. And this guy just walked up and he was selling bees. It was an amazing city. I was just lying on the grass
he gave you he tore up some yes paper so you could hide the beer. He had my back because he can't drink in Central Park. Just had a little servicer It was a nice How is the How is the drinking the non dry drinking?
Yeah, well, I
I I went to engagement on the weekend and I could not be bothered but I think that's because when you when you drink like you have a little drink before the before you go out or whatever. Like you feel like yeah, I'm into it now. But I pushed through and I it was lots of friends and stuff so I caught it. I enjoyed it. A table I got so full on lemon lime and I thought I've had too much What do you
know spring raw the head fried chicken and
yeah, but anyway, I had like the menu system. The post hotel I had three
nights in St Kilda three tall glasses of lemon lime bitters. Three didn't have much. He criticised me yesterday for my 85%
Oh, no, it wasn't it wasn't lemonade in there. It was soda water, lime juice, lemon, lime and bitters. The little spritz and some ginger ale like a tiny
little spicy. So lemon, lemon. Lime bitters is it was a bastardised lemon. Did you ask specific I
said, Do you have lemon lime bitters? He said I can make a version of that because it was upstairs in this sort of area that's not catered. They don't have everything. It was really lovely. That tastes exactly like lemon lemon bit it's not as naughty
actually started following from mountains here. I don't know if you notice from our Instagram account. I started following a nutritionist that she does like side by sides like the 300 calories you could eat this is on the left. She has like my diet. And on the ryan she's like, Oh, you could have six pounds of strawberries in I wonder
what the most dense like, Hi, I was that guy walking across the Antarctic. This guy that was on Joe Rogan he was pushing a sled you know that guy? Isn't it isn't fucking animal. But he was he was because everything was frozen. He had to find things were high calorie. Wouldn't free Clif Bars, like yeah, that kind of stuff. Yeah, yeah. So we had to use a specific oil but I was just thinking one wonder what the most? Like the most calorie dense small bit of knowledge spoke about fear we forget fruit and shape But have they worked out how to get 5000 calories into something that is like, you know, the size of an icon
he's really doing then? No, I just I just figured it his bars a 1200 and 50 calories. Really? And that was an autoplay video. Okay,
yeah. Walk, idiot, but
couldn't be that big to say some natural confectionery. Yeah, show me how it's done. Yeah, the
calorie stuff. It's good seeing the visuals saying it has made me think about Okay, maybe I'll cancel out this with that. Some of the things that she seems to the nutritionist makes a specific point in that she's not. She's not saying one's bad and one's good. She's just doing them as side by side comparisons. Interesting. content. Yeah. But interestingly, the naughty ones always on the left. Like I said before, and then the after type thing, but the thing that where I think I can get stuck is fake healthy foods or foods that are potentially healthy. But this super high. What calorie not better? No, like bliss balls. I could fucking smash
even know and I mean, I see we get a you know, you get when you see Steph clay Smith, who's dancing around in a bikini? Yeah, looking amazing. Guys, these are my balls. ate them. It's like you get it. You're like, oh, there's she's the pillar of health. And they've got a ravens. And I and you get three? Yeah.
Because you always get them at what? Like, I don't know what you're like. But if I get a pack of three, yeah, it's a very good brain. Normally I get one brain normally gets one. And then the third one. I'm like, What do you want to always come session? What do you wanna do with the third line? I just say that
there's no point in making some kind of like a health slice if you eat the whole trade.
It's there's no point.
Yeah. But I think there yet, but I think that that's what is annoying me at the moment is just like the, there is so much. It's like this. This got me the other day. Bry was like, we've got take boats. Right?
Like in the morning, my father.
But whatever it was that she was making. I was like, Oh, this is delicious. And then the next day she goes, do you want porridge again?
I was like, it's great. But
what she was saying that what we had the day before was porridge
and then what and
so that I like it is just like oh, like Yeah, exactly. Yeah. But I was like completely fucked with my mind. Because I've always said that I'm not a guy. I want a porridge. And so when she called it out as I'm aiming arts or whatever, next day, she was like
the porridge. That means
I think the thing is the word porridge. Right. Let's get a real problem with the word part. Did you a Polish growing up now I just I had family friends that I borrowed. And I was always like, Oh, yes. Imagine and all I'm just a white slob.
I like I see birdie. scuffing some broccoli last night. I'm just like, this is great. It's a win win. A kid just enjoys something or at least doesn't have some. I can, you know, adverse source on it. Like some just like I think all these things. Where did they come from? Yeah, at what point in our lives like the fruit that's bruised? Would you eat a banana that's bruised?
Would you know it's hi Jay. I
know. But if you're just gonna eat bananas, if you're gonna eat bananas, would you wait?
I'd be more likely putting this movie
okay, but would you eat it if you have to be a little brown avocados I would
smash smash the avocado to sort of look semi green and there is
like some people have a really funny like three day deal. In the boogie. I just seem taking out the tomato.
Yeah, I feel privileged.
I just don't like things. I don't like the texture and the taste of it.
Where'd that come from? Just I don't know
what I maybe five or six.
I'd we we were at a when Wendy's I think okay, I don't know. Do you guys have Wendy's
or Wendy's is different ways here is like you get big shakes and ice creams and the hot dogs at the most
New Zealand have Wendy's? Okay.
Yeah, I've got like the full book. Yeah,
it's like a, it's a pretty simple fast food burger joint. And I would always go up to the counter and they would say what would you like on your burger today? And I would say I want me. Cheese, ketchup, mustard, and pickles. So you eat tomato.
Ketchup comes into it. Okay,
but that's different.
And then they give me this burger. And little like five or six year old Dylan gets this burger and he goes to sit down with his parents to eat it. And there's a fucking tomato on it. Oh my god. And I didn't realise until I bite into a trigger warning everyone trigger warning. It was disgusting. I just didn't like it. I did. Because it wasn't what I was expecting. Yeah, I think if I had asked for maybe just asked for NATO because I didn't know what the hell that tomato was.
Yeah, does that mean you heightened Burger King? Is Burger King? I guess I've built
I don't really eat a burger king. But like the same thing happened when I was like, older. I was in high school and I had a burger with an avocado on it that I wasn't expecting. And I this the taste was unfamiliar to me. And I was like, Oh, this is gross. Yeah, it shook me up. And so I never ate Ricardo after that until we had lunch at your place one time Josh and really, I was gonna make smashed off. Oh, and it was like I want to try on What's
your deal with Why don't you like
Because the jam doughnuts we have back in Canada are pretty shit. Okay,
God, so it's a little funky. It's
the jam is probably good. But they're like the doughnuts are so old. They're not fresh. So all the inside gets soggy.
Just we need to get a like the hot Mike. You need to get one from the fryer hot Gen. Three. Mr. 97 miniseries on food issues?
Well, yeah, but is there like I'm more specifically honing in on the things that you'll leave on the plate or you want touch? I think
Yeah, well my like there's there's mushrooms but one one thing that stands out is is walnuts. And mom used to put walnuts on our dinner when we were little kids and we would stay at the table refusing to eat them for like half an hour after dinner. And one time Sam, my older brother he he tried one and he ended up throwing throwing up in and he ran like to the shower and he threw up all in the show so ever since that have given them a
warm up to not a dinner right Amai that
Yeah, they go on
salads and stuff. He was on top of it. Yeah.
I say walnuts is more sort of a carrot cake.
I wasn't happy with India.
Is there anything you actually leave?
us your fucking right.
I don't leave she I think it's rude.
I just feel if you're gonna bought pay for a meal. ate the whole thing. Yeah,
well, I just the simplicity of it. I don't fucking care
about Matt. Well, that's what my credit actually one thing. I don't one thing that is completely off my list.
Is soy milk? Well, because because you struggling from the testosterone point of view
anyway. I do. I do. I am aware that I remember hearing soy milk gives you man boobs, you don't need that.
I think it's probably the same is chilly boosts metabolism. Or maybe it's like sugar gives you diabetes. Now that's pretty much
But no nonsense.
But no, but the one thing that's one contentious issue is that I find that if you're doing a coffee order, if you have say who you're with order something and it's a certain type of milk, there is probably I would say about a 70% chance that there is going to be a mistake made with milk and you're going to end up with in milk
when you're ordering seven different coffees.
hijack that even to like I had once where it's like Bry ordered like a soy cappuccino. And then I ordered like a almond cappuccino.
And I took a sip. I knew something was wrong. What do you drink it? I just put it
put it down and then got a new one that I was just like, and so I was like, you know, at the time I was like, You know what, from now on. You order soy milk. I'm gonna have to go a black coffee.
I think I timed it was it was that
negativity to sort of combat pickiness
in in kids? It was quite handy for my dad to say your grandfather was in the prisoner of war camp. Yeah, he was. He was eating weevils. He didn't have those. But what did he say he was eating weevils in his porridge for protein. And I always just remembered that
ya know, which is we're in privileged times in terms of food stuff. Eat your tomatoes is what I'm saying.
Now, but I definitely feel like if you there's a couple of things I'm worried about with restaurants and you're right. My ring, okay. No, and the other thing, too, is I don't like ordering the same thing, as well. That's just another thing. So if you order something, and I've had a couple of cases where I've ordered something, yeah. Oh, that breaks down the word. I get ready to order first. Like she does hers first. And then I'll order mine. And there has been some cases where Bry will then say actually I'll change mine I have the same as he is
Yeah. Which is there's always a piece of work that we can do around just not being about it looking at what we do. I'm not saying I'm fucking perfect now. I got fucked up shit. No, no, but he's in it just all so trivial and stupid. Like just a thinking around this stuff different
I think for for the food, especially for me. Yeah, food for you. The other thing too is just
Oh, yes. social stuff as well.
Yeah. Nothing fact.
I was just on the way home last night. I was like, isn't it amazing how everyone's everyone is experiencing something different. No one experiencing the exact same thing in a situation that, you know, Craig hapa does when he's doing these big talks gets a people down. He's like, you know, it's the same scenario snake comes into the room. Give anyways content, someone walks in with a snake. Sally's saying Oh,
look at that tonight. You're gonna have to come with eight names right now Brian saying, holy shit. This is like
Kevin saying, Oh, no.
I forgot to take my beans out.
Yeah, he doesn't give fuck about this. And so it goes on.
Johnny, Brian Baden, and Luke seven. check one more in Josh. And what are they all do?
So Johnny is a chippy Brighton he's he works at a factory doing forge man. I'm sorry.
One thing to finish the show, though, I thought that could be interesting is you know, you're just doing a bit of that stuff. It does remind me of my favourite party trick. And you understand why I don't like parties where it's loud because I need concentration. Yeah. But I can remember 10 items. Not only can I already remember 10 items, but you can give me any number between one and 10. He just write down recently 710 items right now on to computer is being interfering. And so what I can do is I'll remember the items. And then you could say, Tell me what Item Number six is. And I'll be able to recall it. I remember when I learned this. This was in 2013. I was at the radio station. I was it was actually when jack post and I became friends. Yeah. I remember Michael Eva, my boss at the time. said like I had spent the day in a room with jack playing memory games. And Michael I was meant to be doing like writing stuff of the dirt, which was the gossip gossip
site. I see why you skills them. I was like, No, Josh.
You haven't done any work today. You know what's going on? I was like, I was in a strategy meeting with jack post. And I was like, and I'm offended that you think I was doing anything else?
The last day before you get fired? No, no, I I relieved yourself.
Yeah. But it was. But I remember Michael calling me out of my bullshit. And so where should we be impressed? We should be impressed. Because if I say for you know what we're talking about? I mean, I think it so how about how about we do this? Why don't we get missing missing seven, you give us the 10? Okay, and then we'll get Tommy first based on he's like
a virtual memory I don't want to get so
but what I'm trying to show. So maybe what you're saying is nice. Is juggling six flames.
What I said was Hey, why don't I give you six flags.
You're setting the baseline Tommy. So yeah,
an average. Yeah.
Yeah. Okay. Well, hang on. Give me two seconds.
I'm just gonna get into the market for a few seconds. Hang on.
is doing something weird with his hands. I can't copy him.
That's fine. Okay, you ready? Yeah. So you're going to say items, 10 items, and you gonna say number one? Yep, the item and then we'll say yes. I can go say yes. And then.
Yeah, number one phone case. Yeah.
Yes, I mean, I have to say yes to.
No, you don't have to know. me just say yes.
Sure. Sure. Okay. Yeah. Number two. Camera. Yes. The camera. Yes. Number three. A mug? Yes. Number for a lunch box. Yes. Number five. a measly bah. Bah. Yes. Number six. a stick of cinnamon. Yes. Yes. Number seven. A sled. sled. My snow sled. Yep. Thank you. Right. Number eight. a sleeping bag. Yeah. Number nine. A phone charging cable?
Yeah. And number 10. a frying pan?
Yes. Which one? Yeah,
I mean, no. So now we go from one to 10 I don't know. So that so now you've got to recall all of them.
Yeah, don't do that first. Not remember,
I remember them all but I know that the fucking kidding me.
Yeah, do we try and do it in order? Hey, I know this is giving Josh away though.
No, no, exactly. This is
how we showing the fucking benchmark if you're
just gonna say saying that number or you
can do that right say number six.
Don't say it.
So this is a problem. I was fucking distracted through the whole I'll try and remember the list from number one. So number one was a phone case.
say this is the fact that
I've never been so
distracted. I've been never so distracted in my life. I'll just say the ones that I do remember? Okay. In over to you. Okay, three was a mug
for was at lunch box.
Seven was five cinnamon five was a muesli bar.
Six I can't fucking remember. Seven was a sled. Yeah.
I was a fucking sleeping bag. Yeah.
Did I get mine is a stick of cinnamon? No fact I got there. Oh, no, that was that was the number six. Number six was number six. Was that.
Not sure number nine.
But number 10 was a frying pan.
And was a sled. And number
nine was a phone charging
phone charging fuck.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. And so do you want to know the secret of how I did it?
Number two, yeah, you didn't even get number two was in a phone? No. So the way that I remember I
you should try and dinner
you know that you know when you see kids? Like you know there's a dinner party happening and the kid becomes I want to put on a show
stage show for you see at the facts paper from my Auntie's place where it's you know, the long I mean, one big thing doesn't exist anymore and so
the airport because they still printing shit,
I would get a big roll of the fax paper and cut it and that would be my sign you know Josh show. Anyway, the way that I have associated with every single number of associated an item you tried to one is a hammer to resist snake three is boobs. Four is a boat. Five is a man with a hat they all look like the number number six is a padlock seven is a boomerang. He is a racing track nine is a possum. 10 is a plate and cutlery. Now what I do is I associate I imagined a hammer hitting a phone case. I can't remember what the fucking snake was doing. But biting the camera biting the cat No, it was one day taking a photo of a snake it wasn't a strong enough narrative for sure. Number three was boobs and a mug number four was at lunch box on a boat number five was a man with a hat eating a measly bar number six was something to do with it to the padlock cinnamon sticks him yeah so this is what I struggled with. Because I literally imagined locking up a cinnamon stick which is just shooting seven I imagined a frozen Boomerang going across a fucking what's the thing called that? That we're talking about? sleds ahead. Number eight was a
frozen Boomerang going across the sled
yeah well cuz I had to remember sled cold all that so Thing number right I imagined someone having a sleep in a sleeping bag around a racing track number nine I had forgotten but it was a sheet one it was a charging k a possum wrapped up in a charging cable that was a bad one killer. And number 10 was a source. Sorry, and yet frying pan with in a calorie. So that's how
it was. Yeah, this is a nerve wracking situation. Do you sort of impressed by that on that? One I was more impressed about was the memory which you spent a lot of time probably doing of those 10 years like that's impressive that you just recall that
and then you have to get into the teens. You have to then apply something else. So it's like everything is on fire. You're gonna try it.
Let's try this to deal three day deal. motivational quotes
for your Hump Day a bit quickly. What was number eight?
See, not the racetrack.
Yeah, yeah, that was mine. Yeah, I was thinking back Yes. Sleeping Bag. You said that. Yeah. Well, Josh if he remembered, no, I,
yeah. I mean, I wasn't really trying to actively remember. Okay. Although since I will say though, before I do the quote thing that I it's, I find it interesting how you were able to remember by associating those things.
Yeah, I was trying to work it out as you going cuz you're looking around and I thought you were looking I was a real object. Yeah,
I'm surprised you haven't gone into like memory palaces and stuff. I feel like I gotta be yourself.
Let's just not give it to him because he didn't remember them. So
performance, so yeah,
I think that even the fact that and the thing is that I am the whole like, going into rooms of a house very effective as well. The other one to which I think we could do as a team is um, you like, memorising a deck of cards. Once you have a deck of cards, you can do a bunch of other stuff. I need to get Todd Samson on like that was so
yes. What's a show called race done it?
Yeah. Oh, God body hacks coming out next week. Yeah, it's one of those ones. Yes.
But there's there's a book called moonwalking with Einstein, which is all about memory.
I mean, Tim Ferriss, I remember him talking about the
written on a you know, I show me a note $1 bill or whatever, and I can really memorise all the numbers on the bill.
Is that sort of impressive. The problem with these things I found is it's like, outside of doing a podcast or even a part like it's not a good party drink.
No, no, I actually heard recently about brain training. absolute bullshit.
Yes. Um, I think Joe Rogan Was it a podcast somewhere as well? Hey, Brian training FDA.
I don't actually train they're not trying. You're Brian. They like
your brain. Just memorising.
memorising the form to the
game or whatever. I mean, that's. That's life, isn't it?
Yeah. But they sold his Do you training?
help you, Brian? Yeah, sure. Alright,
so so I write a deal has been doing, quote, you've become prolific for doing Instagram posts and putting inspiring quotes underneath them captions. Yeah. And so we thought as a benchmark, when we can remember at the end of the show, yeah. You can do quite and before before you say the quote, if you're listening to us, and you have Instagram, take a screen grab and put it up as a nice storey. So we know you listening tell us the 10 items. Yes, yeah. Yeah, if you remember the two items.
So it was this one comes from I went on a date with a girl last year, and it was like it was we only went on like three dates, but it was probably the best date that I've ever been on. Would you do? We literally spent the evening riding riding our bikes around town. And just having simple conversation. Yeah. And like it was. It was it was just like, really? Like, we were both not distracted by our phones or anything. We're just enjoying talking to each other. And it was, that's why it's called locked. Yeah, exactly. So from that, I learned that the greatest and most emotionally wealthy thing in a person's life is the power of a simple conversation. Is which is which is what we're doing right here. Yeah. Was it a BMX? I was on a road bike. She was on a mountain bike. Did you have
clickers in cleats?
No, I didn't. I just had normal runners on but she paced me out up a hill. She beat me up a hill on the Mount
really good because it was a mountain bike you think?
No, I was on a road bike. I should be faster
from small quads. She was good at she's fitness.
