It's the daily Talk Show Episode 630. Sunday gronk What's going on? What's happening?
scooted Derek posted a photo or video of me, which was odd to me. He came over to my house and he worked out how the Google system works and so he decided to play like Anvil or some sort of anthrax. Yeah anthrax, that's where it was heavy metal and he put it 100% volume and but he filmed it and I caught my side profile. I'm not happy
why what's wrong with this? I just realised you side profile is you know, but I just feel like maybe the whole fat Friday thing we're
doing with Saturday with all this. Yeah, it's just dial it in.
I don't know Do we? Yeah, now we definitely dial it in. What's wrong with fit Friday's? Yeah, I think we should we should we put an end to
Fat Friday's absolutely not but we could do we could do a month as of next month and that's what we're gonna wait until April into MMA stir on Main East is the fit fit one Have you ever thought about your weight George never never been an issue anything too skinny. okay yes I actually can't really put on my tried
Yeah, I mean I can eat a lot but then probably just shit
does that really what happens? Not that I just
my metabolisms out of control and his metabolism
connected to stone. I don't know. No
no, no the food consumption any waste in any food in this waste out whatever you weigh. So if someone is
got a bad metabolism is that because shooting wise? No, no.
It's not Morning or night.
Preferably morning. Definitely. Bodies routine. He's kicked in like it's funny cuz you have a strict routine in the morning like definitely. Body though. We found it's when he gets home and he ate something at the five o'clock mark. He's ready. He's ready by me. So he's ready to put in the evening. Yeah, I reckon he's pushing to a day aren't you? Most kids don't today? Oh, it goes for two days right? He's not sitting enough for long enough in the morning. What do you mean sitting with the toilet? Yeah. Was he sitting on the toilet in the morning to take a shit was got to a day, but was it
does half of one. I mean babies just pull a lot more like it's you don't know, baby. He's he is he's a child.
He said he's a judge. A kid said that to the side funny. No bit
Like, when I had when but he was one or under six a day. Yeah. And that's it. That's a different story when you get Yeah, but you starting to find that pattern sometimes it's none. Sometimes, you know, directing you're more aware of the these types of things having a kid. I mean, yeah, of course because it means that when he does a poopoo I have to get a job and bam, bam. Like that. He doesn't think about that. He doesn't do it himself. Now, he can't do it himself yet. Okay. So when does that happen? As soon as we can make it happen, but I tell you what, just from ashes babies to though like saves an eye on a shoot this week. parked in an ice car park we should report this to be honest, definitely an ice car park which is I don't know who owns the building ice run the bloody parking lot. But this is in a nice area of Melbourne. And we go into the stairwell down to the ground floor and I just
Walking and it smells like acid. Like peace like the these grown ups have been piecing in the corners of this stairwell. And I'm trying to go like Who is that? First of all, you have to have a cast but you have to have a car and you have to be willing to walk out up to $30 Why you in this part of the stairwell. Like you're just coming off I always think of like a harmless but I guess harmless at my piece there. That's a weed. It was a way just to add a plant. You do it on a you do it at the park when you go to the park. I guess you'd have to do it late at night as a problem on building sites. So Amy works for a construction company and one of the site managers was telling a story about how if he's been fending off pieces, like people coming on coming into the building site to take a leak. I feel like we need to as a society work out how we can have more toilets in general. Now the thing is, I mean,
No I agree I agree but there's a real problem like the think about going to Flinders straight toilets. Or it is really so it's like you know what I'm thinking if you walk into a clean toilet and you make a mess of the seat it by the end of the night You're the actual problem so that it's because usually to clean toilets promote clean like a clean behind you you think but as soon as it starts getting dirty the respect you have for a toilet say that has peaceful over is very low light. So you say my bed I won't touch it then because it's got everyone else's you know what I mean? Like Yeah, you see how it just promotes it? So the gronk that does it first is the is Hitler. So it's
toilet Hitler. So you said it the way you're describing is like you are the kind of guy at a public toilet to piss like previously piss on and say no, not at all. Not at all. I've got
because I did think about I walked into
toilet. I was like, This is known as honesty. I didn't drop a little bit of weight on a public toilet. This is when the thought happened. And I was like, do I clean that? I was like, Well, if I clean that, I have to basically clean up 70 other people's weight. And I opted out. Absolutely no. So you're like Richard chance. And when it comes to climate change,
my piece is only about 1% of the ball.
But the thing is, everyone's got to claim that piece. Yeah, I have a real thing where, especially if I'm using a toilet that will be then used by a female who has to sit down unless they've got some superhuman skill, or using a shy away. I can't be the one even if I didn't do the way on the seat, and I know there's a female coming in. I will have to clean it like I have to clean a tough top dude. Are you just wired that thanks
That you pay yeah it's probably the one thing I think that the one thing I don't want to be I don't I don't want to think that people are thinking of me like the guy that just left piece on the seat I feel like unisex toilets probably promote cleaner
Yeah, that's a good point. I mean, we've got a unisex toilet yeah that you clean all the time. Well, that's the whole thing. So when I said about the whole cleaning the whole time I would definitely never ever like if you ever get peace on the stage or anything like that clean straightaway. Yeah, but then also
that whole like, I mean, is it a beat us having cleaning products and next to the toilet, that's fun. So it's sort of something a little bit Bogan, but it's actually very efficient because you can always like so I'll definitely do that where I'll just like give it a you know, do the whole bowl thing. And then even just get a bit of toilet paper and I mean, toilet paper is
I've all of a sudden
started using less with the idea of not because I'm a doomsday prepper because I'm just worried that like, what happens when I do need toilet paper? Yeah, yeah, because you've never bought it. I don't know how. Well no, no, no, I bought it before I bought toothpaste last night. Yeah, from a third works. I've never gotten like that you can say Uber now now food works. I was trying to get cash out. And the lady says a $40 like Max, Max. Yeah, maximum 40 bucks. So I said, Okay, I'll just get this now I'll do another transaction. This is you in the blue bills. That doesn't that make sense when I did this exact same thing at a service station and what they say at that? I was like, Yeah, but what about if I use a different card? That's actually a different car. You literally like thank you and then go get something else then go. Hey, just want more cash. Yeah, I pointed out the absurdity. I was like you're missing my wife in like, excited. I saw it sorted out now. And you gotta be kidding. Absolutely not. So I think
So the funny thing is, the lady said, we'll try 60 we'll see if it work. Did it didn't work. I was like, Okay, let's do 40 did 40 didn't work. And she looked down as I was doing. So you're tapping it, you can catch up tapping it can't, I didn't know this. And so I let the people in. Because it was like, the whole piece thing thinking about like, name to the toilet. There was someone behind me, whose partner was busting to go to the toilet, and I'm hearing this is the closest one he has. I'm just gonna go ahead. Sorry. Yes.
And so the all of that was happening. So I let them through, and then did the insertion. And by 60 back, I think you're right about the it'd be great to have more toilets everywhere, but it's also a problem. Like, what about if you have a who looks after these toilets running for toilets, right? Oh, well, what about just the Italians, they the they have someone at the door where you get a pioneer? That's 30 cents. 50 cents. $1 I wasn't and I am
Train Station all in La Jolla it's one euro bullshit literally put into this machine that open boom like little gates I was up. This is for winning. Yeah. So you can tap and pay while you should not yeah
Yeah, yeah yeah yeah I feel like such a cheapskate when you like follow the next the other guy
no but what about this is an idea an Uber style thing where after you go to the toilet it takes a photo of the toilet attaches it to your account it doesn't before before you go in you get a writing yeah before you go in snapshot of the toilet after you leave snapshots films Oh, it's a that's the Canon cameras and toilets brought up Yeah, you know, I wonder if there's a way to
use the data for analysing cleanliness of toilet if you if you knew that there was a
Okay, now I know how you doing
There's actually a physical mechanism like a trap door, like a trap door like a cover. And so what happens is when the door opens, the cover comes up, and it's actually designed in the door. And so it reveals that lens, it takes the photo or whatever, when the doc whenever the door is closed, the camera is completely shut off. And so what it means is, as soon as you open the door, it activates it. And then as soon as you about to go in, it activates it. And so basically, you end up with a before and after, and then that gets attached to your profile account. But then you have to have Uber, you have to be the thing. It's so whereas in China, maybe it's it's like, what sets that Netflix series where they have the black mirror. It's like the world where you're getting righted. And so you have a school. It's like a citizens status or citizen School, which would only work if it was enforced at that time.
level would you not be top level? Like you think every gronk Scott over? No, but I reckon you could create nap. I reckon there's probably in Melbourne hundred thousand people that would say, this is an issue for me. Yeah, yeah, I could agree but the tech who's installing the tech Yeah, who's paying for it you know which toilets to instal the Melbourne council can't even look after the toilet problem because the problems not Melbourne Council, they do their cleaning, scheduled and cleaning every three hours in the toilet around Melbourne and what they do, it's the drunks in there. But you know what to actually do in those like the big silver things, your auto claim? Have you seen an auto clean auto clean toilet? Like it?
Never it becomes less of an issue around the clean if we've got this whole system, you know, no matter what system, the system of before and after. Where I say it being a little bit of latest is you need to have a phone, I think and yeah and you're paying us
I think this the solution has been the paying the money to get into the toilet. How much would you pay year to to have this?
Well, the question is how much would you pay? I'd pay have a clean toilet anywhere around Melbourne. Yeah, that's the Yes. And that's the thing. So do you pay 500 bucks for you to have access to more toilets but also clean toilet? What's the guest policy? Can you bring people in? What do you do with your toilet? platinum, what do you remember? You can What do you entirely up to? What if if Telly needs to go toilet and you need to hold a hand? You do that? Is that what you're saying? Is that what you mean by all used to saying people can't use your pass? Yeah, that's you meaning you're getting cosy in the cubes.
The thing? Anyway, I came to course
the shitstorm that was created after dodge telling us about his kitchen s at a workplace he'd been working at Yeah, and then we started getting
people sending through staff.
Yeah, so we got one from Emma. What was MSI unzips? Well, Emmett
took took control of the situation that she'd been dealt. Emma said this is a communal kitchen about 10 forks last year, because she was sick of the forks disappearing. There are none left that she bought. She also attached another photo of the sink at 8am Scott crap everywhere. And she says she thinks it might be the bosses Ha.
doubled down and said definitely the past these patterns work. They've got nothing. Like everyone has to bring their own fork their own ball if they want to eight out of their own cup. And then what?
Washing what happens with the cleaning of the items, but we'll have to do it themselves. It takes time. Yes, the ultimate law is no communal, anything. It's the ultimate
Like this, yeah. Well, and then you can get real like, if it's there for one day gets been. So you lose your cutlery or anything like it gets put into the bin. Which the business something around a budget that we could give ever, you know, like a bunch of those like
things Campaign Monitor or whatever like these, these big brands, like tech companies, they give budgets for like, say, with venture IP with Angelo and how he fits out his
office. A bunch of tech companies will be like, you get X amount of money and you get to figure out your office any way you like, your I mean, so this is when you have like a go off. Yeah, so it would be desk scene, like so for instance would be like, okay, you're a new start. You get 4500 bucks, and also, no,
no, so 4500 bucks would be like, Okay, I'm getting a Mac Mini. I'm getting jewel screens, and I'm going to spend the rest on plans right now.
About me. Yeah, I know. It's not happening. This is all hypothetical.
About what about if there was something around that where it's just we actually compartmentalise them. And so it's like you get a kitchen you get a $25 Kitchen budget and you have to so we know what 90 sevens cutlery and plates and bowls look like and he has a section we've got enough cupboards Yeah, we could lay 97 could have his own cupboard. I could have my own cupboard like a share house. Is that what happened that she has it? It's not really it's more food. What happens at share houses mobile people have their own level on a pantry or something. What do you have you have? We actually combine all that stuff. We know it can all go to shit though. Amy's housemate used to Himalayan rock salt and replaced it with salt. Yeah, the just the big bottle the chief.
grainy crashing chips like
Yeah, yeah, no.
Washing your sore throat out, you know it was that shit. And she won the $3 versus $20. So this is what happens. And it's very hard. Like I think it's too complex. Sam, I got given an Amazon gift card. What's the deal with this? He says you got some word. It says Josh. At x dot I send you a $20 $20 amazon gift card. These are all scams. No, this isn't a legit one. So this is
this is the meeting the calendar scheduling app that I signed up for. And it says if you book in one meeting will send you $20. But I just thought that was $20 attached to your account credit. This enzyme sent us a $20 Amazon cup. What are we going to do with that? So that means that I George, you should set up your sound. Oh, sorry. Okay, that's right. It's free to sign up. Yeah. So they're just giving amazon gift cards.
Why think so. This is ridiculous.
anything this is this is absurd. What to give away 20 bucks is a value add, but
it's a free sign up. Yeah, we couldn't run out. I don't trust it. Well, let's not trust it. I'll register it I want to run this past Suzy Jones. This could be this could be a scam ball just but they're not going to get any data that's very much copy the code you've already signed up maybe they've been breached maybe the company's been breached George How are you with them gift cards to you in what way to weed Chris Have you ever been gifted many gift cards in your life? Well, last year, two years ago I got a ask for gift card from my brothers and sisters from being h Oh really? Yeah, he was like a New York photo video store. Yeah, it's huge. Have you ever been there before? Not in New York now.
And, and it was coming up to my birthday again. I hadn't actually used it yet. Oh shit. What am I gonna get? Turns out they don't run
Now that's good. I got another one. So now I've got two online. Ready to go. What do you enjoy so much cash? You gonna, like? 300? Us? That's good. That's it. Yeah. So what are you going to buy? So I don't buy many gift cards basically. Yeah, yeah, accumulate these cards. I mean, you're very um, it seems like you're not really attached to things. No. Oh.
Yeah, I guess I guess. I don't know. I guess no. Well, cuz you've generously given your speakers to us. Which will bumping? Yeah. Your IMAX? Yeah, yeah.
It's a storage facility. Yeah, you just, that's what's happening
is attached to it, but he just stores that app joy. But now I feel like you don't like the fact that you have a voucher for 12 months on something like a tech store and you haven't found something to buy. I think that's absurd. What would you recommend? What do you want? What do you want a camera and I want a lens
I was gonna get a lens. Yeah, what lens tonight? Probably looks like a sigma 1.8
Yeah, I was gonna get some new gear when I went to for when I go to Japan. But now I might not even be going oh right so when we going to Japan in like six weeks and so what's happening? Well pros can have to cancel
insurance if you get travelling true
nothing silly boy. How much have you spent knowledge? Like the cheap jet stuff but so it was like 450 bucks. So that's all you'd lose that's all Yeah, still annoying still annoying so like even Brie on Friday went to Sydney and her boss was like hey you don't
you don't have to come because of pat like it because of all the coronavirus stuff. Businesses starting to get worried that they can't they don't want to be
complicit the right word in someone getting dried like they don't want to send people out unnecessarily to then get coronavirus and die or whatever. Yeah, I wonder if you got coronavirus on work hours. Can you claim it under WorkCover? Surely not. But then, you know if you could trace the infection of the trade, you know that I think everyone's on edge 97 sneezed eight times this morning. Yeah, I favour.
A favour. Why sneezing tonight? It's inside. Yeah.
Well, I'll be the little bit of a tiny bit of dust just as you would on anything from the speakers. Yeah, I got that attention to so.
Yeah, that's why I think
it's funny that that that's the only thing that's changed and I never stayed in here. And so the thing is, you sneeze I sink into his jumper like this. Yeah, it's into my T shirt. So you go inside your jumper and then inside your night for
That one I think it's revolting by the eighth I might be an absolute myth.
You rather that into the elbow into this can this can hold more. And so, so you don't like that because I'm going to story about it. I don't think I think that what I'd prefer and then Did you wash your hands off with that because I was just there just sort of like typing with my eyes looking over Yeah, yeah, but what's the solution? Well, I think that is a hard one. I think it's a bit like the podcast ranka it's it doesn't need a solution does because you've been a guy with a lot of judgement. Yeah, God with illness solutions got a lot of problems.
Now, I think what I would do, it's a hard one. What would you go to? If anything, it was just annoying sneezing eight times. More than by the third one you were done with saying Bless you.
didn't believe in God.
It's a real it's a
it's a testing
Empathy because by probably the fifth one is fucking ridiculous. Like, he's just like a
real fucking annoying you know, you may be down
think maybe go outside if you got to do you know,
to to a one a three I think the annoying thing is that like every time it's like like that's a surprise did fucking six before yeah anyway so we will yeah yeah so just keep that for the first it's definitely
it's you feel good did it feel good for you Is that why you
know it's just sort of baked into my stage
it's just a thing need it's just baked in. Yeah so I did the I did this
Singapore airport and I noticed a couple
must have been local look over and sort of understand what they're saying. They referenced into a light laughed and
like he did the he pointed to his top like he's pointing to the action that I did.
And I was like maybe that is I think Asian countries they're like masks in general, I think more accepted in Asian countries here. I think they've slow I me was I mean, I were talking about this from the bushfires, like you even when like look at these fucking people mask something and then it's that we're just not accustomed to it's not a part of our culture wearing masks. What's the coat? What in Singapore? 97 What, what's the thing to do culturally when it comes to sneezing? Well, I'm in Singapore have pretty strict rules. Like that's how they've got such a claim. And in our Charlie run ship, it's in no Chewie no speeding bunch of your
Literally on a ship that way it was it was a big ship but no drought like you get done with Wade you're in big trouble like if you had an ounce of Wade I think there's a death penalty for waiting in Singapore I'm just pointing to it in Japan they're like super tiny as well. And they've got if you walk down the street you'll notice that no one smoking cigarettes and then you turn around the corner there's like a kind of an outline of a car park looking thing about 10 metres and as 100 people in there just in the outside in the in the open air they got a dog and still smoke in bars and stuff. Yeah, really. It's a bit backwards. That's for me. But yeah, Singapore is great. We should go and do it. So
any any filthy rich agents filthy rich. Was that was that movie now what's going
crazy you're judging. The rich
are filthy rich.
No updates. It just looks like it's a into the dive. It's the dub.
elbow that's what they tell the key until we get into it because the whole aboah handshake is tapping elbows. So if you're sneezing in your elbow and then tapping your elbow and other people you just were all spreading out sneezes Yeah. Anyway that's all I still have like projectiles if he going into your elbow. You know what I mean? Like you still Yeah, you know what? I think Josh just wants people not to sneeze at all. No, no, sir. You understand that though? George. Or do you think that like, understand what the annoyances? Yes in games? Yeah, you just can't help it for, for me or for my film for me? No, I don't want to stage it. Yeah, sure. But the way that you framed it with
you seems like you're having fun. If I knew that was like, if you done
I'd be like, Man, fuck yeah, it's annoying for everyone. I
thought, well, you were like, oh, i times. Like, that's so good. Like you did that. It's, it's we
just quickly on the
kitchenette. There's a spoon. That's just been drying whose spoon is it?
No, no, no be mine. I haven't used to swear what size? It's a big spoon like a noxious spoon. It's like a soup spoon. Could be mine. I'll go put it away because
someone did bring up a point, in fact, which was early days of this office, one of the rules we we were outlining rules and one of them was you're not allowed to say, it's not my problem. And we have a great grab of you. And him so animated. Saying, it's not my problem. It was my job. It's not my
terminology. Yeah. Which is not my problem. Yeah. Sean picked up. Yeah. Sean, who's working on a gronk coin. Yeah. And he said first, before we go, you can still become a VIP. What do we think of a VIP? gronk is the term is that what we're just leaning into? Yeah, like that VIP? gronk. And so to be clear, gronk squad everyone is part of the gronk squad.
Doesn't matter if you're a listener, like if you listen to the show, whatever, gronk squad, if you've got an annoying brother that sneezes like saves, he's right at the gronk side of the gronk. Squad, then VIP, a VIP gronk is someone who wants to be have more interactions with the show. And so what we've been thinking is like, eventually, we'll have zoom calls, where when we have guests on, we can have like 40 people or 30 people on watching the episode. So we've got like, someone in the studio, a guest, and then everyone can be at home watching. And then at the end, everyone can be putting in their questions into the chat and 97 more than call out people and unmute them. And they can ask if that's not your cup of tea, and we're doing a live event you'll be updated first. Yeah, exactly. And so you don't have to necessarily do that. But there's also other benefits too. So yeah, if you just would prefer email or text correspondence. Each week, we'll be sending messages and saying, Oh, hey, like, This week, we got this any thoughts on this? That type of thing, but the main reason is, you get
stickers up until March 13. So if you go to the daily talk show.com forward slash gronk, or gronk, by the way, gronk scored. So gronk.com Tj pointed out he had a few drinks last night. And so it was just random stuff. You know where this is going? I have a feeling it might just redirect to our homepage for which one gronk.com now, the daily talk show.com forward slash gronk squad. We actually mentioned that the first time that is there's no redirect, I had to do a redirect but I had to instal WordPress plugin because I didn't know how to do it. Okay.
This is keep an eye on
epsilon squad. COMM goes to the form. So it's just the daily torture for slash gronk school boys Well done, jump on to one of those links and sign up yet you fill out the form. It's very easy. You get your stickers in the mail, which is great, which is absolutely free. And we're starting with George's one question at the moment. It's just what's your
Hobbes that's like the main one, but people have taken upon themselves to sort of elaborate, which would really appreciate. If there's no notes, any extra comments I don't even reckon would get any particular finding the hobbies and then going into a bit of riffin so elaborate going from your hobbies into your life story. We're happy with it. And then
final thing, the book, tiny habits.
Did you have any announcements at your end of the bookshop? So because you're sort of social media manager for the bookshop I am I
still don't think there's been any
so the hard bit is we're taught we're talking about because even screwed because screwed in love supporting bookshops, the local bookshop, where the local bookshop thing is harder is the delivery. Yeah, when you go from being local to trying to deliver, it gets a little bit harder because it's like, Okay, well, you got to add that back. So I think maybe if
From the next month yeah show. They might it might be 20%. So it will be the same price as it used went to this shop and the order. Yeah, because you got to pay eight bucks for postage, which is annoying. Yeah. No, I appreciate figuring this is it as annoying as says sneeze? No.
I mean nothing can be. It's actually not that bad. Well, it sounded pretty bad, but you did a good job of painting the way that you felt internally. No, I just think that maybe got to eight sneezes before I had to blow my nose. Yeah, but I wonder if I was at three whether it was usually like dry sneezes up into like, the high numbers and then you can go play you knows Really?
What's more annoying than you sneezes this conversation?
so tiny habits by BJ Fogg, BJ Fogg.
PhD. Interestingly, if you're thinking Should I leave should I read the book? What I would suggest is so on the what date Did I say 14th of March Saturday the 14th of
Much. We're going to do this the book club the halfway through the month book club, where we're going through the book. The idea is that you sort of read half by that point. But the, what I would suggest is if you're on the fence about the book, armchair expert, the podcast with data, Shepherd, he has BJ Fogg on his latest episode. And so they, they talk about a lot of great stuff in regards to habit forming. Quick. Yeah, a little bit quirky. He's got some stuff dialled in, in regards to how we sort of manages his weight. Because that was always an issue for him. Was he big? I think so. Actually, one Yeah, but anyway, so he's, um, I want to try and do some of the tiny habits just to try and not even not even for white just health. Just inflamed
scaps so good. Anyway, yeah, hundred percent.
With Glenn. It was going yeah.
ecoline carick and I've got like teeth issues from that. Those things anyway, right? So daily talk show. Remember the daily talk show.com forward slash gronk. You putting your phone number there too so we can actually start sending you texts which is fun as well. Otherwise so tomorrow, guys
