It's the on button George you've been here early so you should have had it on me. I never turn it on. I just layer up. Yeah, jumpers on.
Yeah, I don't think I think I reckon I reckon I use that once since I was working for a while. You guys are

What do you at percentage wise? Ah, because you finished on a high last right you were. There's one point you were 95 and it was back into the way that's not normal.
Yeah, no. I mean, I'll sort of come off the high. I'm probably at a 70 something this morning. Really? Yeah. 75 It's just the weather. It's not not that motivating. Just It was a struggle to get out of bed this morning. So how was the boss? Ah, look, the buses. Alright. I can't complain. It came on time. Yeah,
it was pretty empty. So that's great. George, how are you percentage? I'm pretty good. All right, good. I'm high 80s solid
yet? Maybe? Yeah. 89 to 90. Yeah, yeah.
For me, I mean, I think I got food poisoning on Saturday night. I mean, we had some cheeky nuggets on we did and chips when you guys left that on Saturday. avo. But then I woke up on Saturday night and was spinning like I felt like I was back at, you know, 17 years old in my bed spinning from being that drunk. Like my focus wouldn't like I couldn't get in, I got up and I was half asleep as well. And then I ended up having a chalk.
Really, really bummed. Now he's not,
not not just, yeah, just to spew, and then I'm done. That's good. And so I just thought, What?
What are you today?
Well, I was feeling a little bit, you know, when you just sort of like, just a bit low, probably 60. And then you're like, I've got to do a video today as well. And it's, and at that point, like, motivations, low creativity you feel is not there. But then you sort of have an idea. And then you wrote Georgie boy into it. And then you fly in the back at 90, and you've got a video to premiere on the show.
Yeah, I'm excited. So yeah, by the time I got in your energy was high night. It's appreciated when you've done all your work by just after 12
pretty fucking happy.
Georgie boy I mean I got to see Georgie boy in his element. Yeah doing the whole Hump Day replay stuff.
Yeah well you say Georgia nice element in this video can we premiere it now we can.
All right. What are you right now from a numbers perspective?
Oh, it felt better I can after I'll be 95
I don't know so can I say what? It's cold? No You just have to do is I'm just gonna apply it. I haven't seen it so hopefully it's I think defamatory
Georgia boy Today I'm making a play to become the T guy. So currently Josh has declared himself a tr, but he's let himself slip. And when people make mistakes, that's when others come in and take what isn't theirs.
So today, let's work on a five step plan. Step one, the quickest
way to become To take
is to buy stuff that's t related. What do you want? Nothing to see here.
Nothing to see go back there's no oil hot
water where you bought your boiling cold water technically it turns hot. I suppose you could
build that army. George Harrison Hey God
Tommy jacket diamonite Tommy Jackie, Tommy jacket Georgie boy I know I said it was a five
step plan. It's a four step plan. The last
is making the plan. All right George boy he's gonna have the pride down down in the kitchen is john is five.
He's mug. Adapt and improvise. He's old mug by blog. Therefore I am when Josh walks in, I'm gonna have
my tea to paraphernalia and I'm going to be dunking my little
tea thing into my mug. Well, it's actually his mug supply now. Once he
says that, did you have a very satisfied so you
guys gonna be very happy and TJ will be common. Got to come up.
Yeah, why not? Any questions? Sounds good. I mean
that's how you just take take the reins that a guy?
Well, I mean, I feel like the the real ti doesn't talk about being the take. And I'm at home having my tea not worrying about it.
Well, what if you're gonna be the tea guy? Can I become a new guy as well? You need a video. You can't just say it. That's the problem with just announcements
there but I've actually I've got it here. Do you? I've become the the protein guy.
Shit is tomorrow's video.
So I'm getting I've gotten into the low carb bars. Yeah. And so
why did he break on the weekend side you I said where you're getting your bars from? I was like, oh, what's he up to now? Yeah. And so I thought referring to the protein shop at the end of the street.
Well, you know, the the thing with food is everyone says, you know, don't overcomplicate it, you have balance, all that sort of thing. Just, you know, intuitive eating. Don't overthink it. It's ended in a disaster for me. So now I am going completely crazy. I was just having my protein bars. I'm having like, I'm just dialling away back.
Okay, good. And so the completely crazy was going crazy on food. And this is well, yeah, okay. No, that's fair.
Yeah, no, this is everything that a fad diet looks like I am doing a fad diet. And I'm unapologetic about it.
Just get on the man shakes or something?
Yeah, well, I mean, this is the things right.
And so you just you just calorie counting and having that yeah,
it works and going super low with the calories okay.
Which also works to put on weight after the fact.
Yeah, well, the thing is, you lose weight. During the fact
that we're in the shorts What are you working towards? He's not sure why 85 Tj I can
buy a happy hour long like how long are you kidding me? So
I want Episode 900 is what I said to myself how many is that that's 50 something yeah so a bit over a month bit over a month to lose 15 kegs think it's you get a sweat as well
you know yeah sweat so I've got the ward like The Walking so that was the other thing. I did say to pray you'll you'll like this. I feel like you can rely I said, the reason why I'm getting fat is because I don't have a pod so I went and bought the air. Yesterday that's a good purchase. Yes, it is because like I can't walk out like, I go outside I get bored. I need like, let's look at let's analyse what's happening and saying why I'm putting on why whatsoever. And so I believe the root cause was two things food and air pods dialled in. And I get it people are probably saying you know, this isn't food, you know yeah, it's got a lot of
you having dinner right now.
I mean the thing is my criticism on dinner
why eight just before you're going to bed
you ate at five get have one of those muscle meals out or a you foods just get something where you just having one of those a day that's great and plus the bars I'll accept that.
I was I was watching what gave me the inspires I was watching old Britney Spears interviews. How old was she? It wasn't actually that old it was when she decided that she was going to go to Vegas and do the whole Vegas
site if you ever referencing Britney Spears, just also type in her ones where she's losing it. Because if you
get inspiration from her in the area, I love you got to pay me too. Some, Yeah, me too. Did you see the video salt? Did you see the video where she was talking about? She's like I'm in my gym room. Yeah. And then she burnt it down to the ground with a candle.
burned it that she sounded a bit crazy when she said, Now I appreciate that easy to do leave your candle on. But she's got a home gym. And then that was her reason for not exercising was it?
I don't know. But she but what I'm referring to is our brain. I went down the rabbit hole of watching Britney Spears. Yeah. Interviews one which was interesting was where a journalist said do you drink Pepsi? Because Pepsi was her
sponsor sponsor, and they're trying to catch her out. Yeah. And she says
He's like, which one and she's like
defensive. Brittany was like saying, you know, for the Vegas thing. Yeah. You know, five hours a day of training and you know, really dialling in all the all the food.
That's what happened. That's what you gotta do to get as she got very, very lame. Yeah, but she's fluctuated hard, poor thing. I don't think it's been a easy ride for Brittany.
Yeah, well, I think it's probably
part of the whole yo yo,
thing, but do you think this is the yo we don't spend too much time?
Yeah, definitely not 100% but the thing is, it's like Why? Like the
I've started to realise I'm like, these are all the things that sit with me and I do it whether I do it or not. And I allow all these other groans saying oh, you can't do that. Oh, don't do it. Like Don't think like there is something around Don't be annoying about it. Don't make it a thing.
Yeah, who that person
person do you know it seems like I'm making it up.
I wish we had the protein guy instant reply.
No, I so much of the the journey that I've been on With the light and all that sort of thing, so much tied up in it in regards to people and what they think it's like, actually I feel good when I'm like, I feel good when I'm not eating that much like it for me that's, that's where I'm like, Okay, I've got it all dialled in, I'm not having to overthink things. I'm not sure I tried to two weeks before becoming the protein guy was a guy that was like the master class. I'm gonna learn everything about Gordon Ramsay. I'm gonna commit coke. Burn the fuck out of my finger. They did not look good. Yeah, my finger is a nightmare. Yeah,
yeah, I haven't. I haven't said that. It's a bad thing. To do you baby. Yeah. I'm doing my face. You got your T
is part of. I know like you can have protein
yet? No, you can. You can be George. I got Mr. 97 a cup of tea. You can have a cover. I'll make you a cup. It's a nine milk. There was no milk in the studio. Good. It's better to be so this one's nice because it's like a bit vanilla. Sorry, that Melbourne, the Melbourne Tito one is so good. And you know, I've got this thing, the highly sort of highly recommended one the discord, tea thing, tea piece of paraphernalia. It's called a taste stick. Very straightforward. What's the tasting worth? 16 bucks, but it's a winner because losers use the old ones that dislike full pot. Same seems like a good good deal. Anyway, is that the only one from home?
really go. You bought two at the time he bought two took it to work. You're gonna leave one at the office? Absolutely not.
I'll tell you. I'll back it up here. Back it up here and just wanted to offer the video
bringing in the taste stick. Well the other thing too I realised is even when I was deciding to become the protein guy because I was making a move at trying to be the Lacroix guy. You've done. Yeah. Boy boy, boy, boy boy. There's a few issues with being a Lacroix though is it's like the name like actually like the name now the issue I have with it is the
So Eric and Brian and I'm setting myself up to have to go to like it Parang every time I want to get it yes just a pint pay two months in Fitzroy north. Oh isn't the individual? Yes the individual three bucks a pop or some shit. Yeah,
right money guy cashed up George. And so yeah, that was that was part of it so yeah and then I even decided anyone that he's playing in the protein game Bri was like do you want to get quest? I used to obsess over quit Yeah, so
was that team, the guy. He does the
He does. He was on Rogen years ago and He's always talking about you know optimising and sure yeah, yeah.
classics that are like
aren't Billy Yeah, but on the bloke with Impact Theory Oh, yeah. Yeah.
Yeah. If you would have sort of described sort of an American approach to self development it's it embodies
Tim Bailey is that he's empty Tom. Tom Tom Tom back at Tom
but now anyway, so I was part of the the whole move was trying to find something that's accessible. So something I can go to a Cole's or Woolworths any of those everywhere and I can get them you don't want to be every time you need to eight going to a specialty store somebody's
got tea in every pocket right now because you know, I don't have to I don't
want to have to think about oh you if you gone Oh, loose leaf or
not a complicated just have tea. Just whatever. Whatever. You even know what the this is loose leave right now that I'm having Bag his bag today
do you have like we got? Yeah,
we got peppermint. Yeah, we got green. We got something else. Standard English breakfast. Oh yeah,
the red one. Yeah. Yeah.
Have you I'm like wait, like you were talking about feeling a little heavier.
I just shaved my beard and feeling good to me.
JJ, might you got a haircut? Well, I feel like that's for me. That's next week for me. As I said, I do my sort of reveal the reveal. Yeah, it's like let's say I've got to try and get a nick before I reveal the neck. I don't want to go too early on it.
Well, I went dark looking at photos of me back when I actually was in shape. And and do you want to say don't say this is this was a before in that this was a before and after? Hmm. So that was me there. You can say can you say yeah, that was me at eight weeks previous to eight weeks pregnant. Eight weeks pregnant Jeezy can really see outlaw pain. And this one use him again. You can fully say pain, I hate grind. And so that was you afterwards that was eight weeks later, and I lost 10 kilos. Those pants have a penis on the front of them. I bought them from Sorento in Italy. But it's nice to look at that for motivation for myself, but also
look at Craig capa. Craig hop has got a very complicated relationship with food.
Yeah, and he's one that eliminates but then I you know, we've had in touch together.
Naughty. Well, that was one of our toasters sort of fucked up at home good. And Andre was like, Oh, she's looking at those smug ones where you've got to spank. Now we've got a KitchenAid. Right. And so she was looking at the toasters. And I was like, you know, like, this is a bad investment. Yeah, this is what's gonna happen. It's like, I was Grice with her rum. pasta maker. What happens when you get a pasta maker? Make more pasta?
Yeah, waffle maker. Ah, well, well, healthy waffles here. You've also can make naughty once Yeah, definitely. It's there's nothing good about it. I mean, I would I was thinking about the gym today like getting back in today What are they open so June one pinch punch first of the month of pubs are back open cafes are back open daily
papers back open not closed. Now I think it's I think it's back open today cuz we went yesterday and yeah it says you know it's and it clocked over you and all the basic bitches thought now let's go to the thousand steps now that it's nice weather right the trail next door though open, was it? Yeah.
So it's just yeah, that horrible one but they've opened up a bunch of stuff in gyms natively on there. Because I was thinking, if I had the
cash I would buy like just a squat rack and kettlebells and the barbell I've been thinking about that stationary bike that's something I've been thinking about is how much is that? Well, it's hard because I want to get the peloton but you can't get it in Australia. They're um they're getting it in the in Germany. Before they like us they have sold them out because of what's happened or they just never we've never been able to get peloton and so I've liked the idea of a peloton and if you get it use it but I think yeah I'm trying to work it it's very hard to understand the exercise bikes and what the sort of the qualities like and I think the keys moving to get one
Yeah, get one that look good reviews as time is blank. I'm sure he's got
what he's got. He goes all the like the he's bike he puts on to a trainer.
Okay. We can get spin bikes and stuff I had. I had a spin bike and a bunch of gear when I had a studio. It wasn't Yeah, I mean, it was your boy. What's your what's your Yeah, walking? I don't do much exercise. Really? can we can we get you training? Yeah. Would you try it like it? Yeah, do some training. Sure.
not actually wouldn't mind like feeling a bit
filling out a bit feeling out of it you know? What do you mean like isn't that a term just getting bulky get swallow swallow yeah
just like doing push ups and stuff you could set like saves he's the guy who's filled out a bit since he started working with us
I've definitely dropped away though just during high so definitely drop away.
Yeah, definitely just because you haven't been white training yeah as much Yeah,
well I think that part of it is
Michael when it comes to weight loss most people will say you just need to do do whites like you need to strength training you need to muscle mass a lot. So I get like, I understand that from like a overall level by remember always been complicated because it's like what am I do Am I I just feel like pick one thing at a time. Get like get to a point where you feel good actually moving. So it's like you don't have that extra wire. And then start editing
you might as well yeah, that is one way. It's like you if you've got more muscle in your body, it's like having a V eight sports car. It burns fuel much quicker. Yeah. And so when you are mostly the food you're eating it's Yeah, you're burning it more efficiently or faster.
But don't you think that I reckon like part of the reason why it's hard for a lot of people is because their reason that, like, there is the idea of what it is to be healthy. And so now it's like, okay, donate too much mate. Like, think about how I listened to the thing about like, the 90s think about how easy even if it was wrong, how like we were all pretty in line with
what it was to have a good diet is probably the food pyramid was really still a thing. Yeah, then. But I mean, we, you want to be more knowledgeable now and executing on that knowledge but
well, Weight Watchers, don't even call them White watches and watches What is that? I think they are on their websites wwe.com Yeah,
and it's like they've rebrand wwe.com www.wwe.com is
that right sir? Yeah, I think it is
yeah wwe.com but
I'm pretty sure that they can't say though like we're also triggered now about watching out wait
they're still called White watches I really just got reimagined done in a very Magic Show.
What does that wonder what white watches even looks like now?
Yeah, why it is my it's they've rebranded their logo to WWE.
So I wonder what they like Is that still the whole counting of
counting calories? Yeah, that I've never done it is Magnus advanced Sabanci, Stila wish it was like a lightness fighter with shine, face of lightning easy. That did well for them. I still do it not, not. I was spending some time I tagged you Last night in the post any Josh of the riots and shit that's going on in LA. And that's like 2000 miles 2000 K's away from Minneapolis, where George Floyd was killed by a police officer. And it's sort of like spilling out like 80s 80s crazy. looking at what's going like in Fairfax district in Hollywood is where they're setting fire to cars. And it's full on like, I watched this. Unbelievable, this helicopter that streamed for nine hours straight. And it was just a fade from the helicopter, flew out, went around was looking into helicopters could fly for night. It was a nine hour feed. I scrubbed through it, I didn't see him land. So there might have been a gap there. But it went to like it was the feed that was getting sent to the news station. So it's like the live broadcast and then that cut, so you could hear like the reporter in the thing and you could zoom in on that. And it was like zooming in closer phenomenal man. Like it's it's crazy
it does feel like a bit of like the world in general is like burning like I think like if you look at the the news it's not a big sort of jump to be like are like the world's fucked
yeah if you had flash if you did a montage of like flash Coronavirus flash like you know, isolation flash to riding on the street flash to cars on fire or something to me like a police car on fire is the picture of chaos like out of hand. Yeah. And you know, it's not I'm not here to discuss whether it's right or wrong. It's fucked up. It's all fucked up. It's all sad. Like, I feel so sad. I heard probably a guy said something around, you know, easy to open old wounds. And that's what's happened there. Yeah, and that's and it's like, God,
what a time Yeah,
what's To be alive, like telling kids in the future like I wonder if it will, how much it will sort of what's normal after this? Yeah, really.
The news I tried to change that news consumption, I'd been a member I'd been email@example.com value a lot. So I've started looking at the age. The thing is that there's the, the limit. I've already hit the article limit, but it's interesting, just must be six or something six articles. But interestingly, you can see how the different sort of news companies media companies treat news, what is like, what's the age? What's the vibe? Well, so the the age just feels like they're sort of bigger pieces more sort of like a less click Beatty, whereas like when you go on news.com de au its own. Like, it's always front and centre. It's always like us, China, like quite hyperbolic type. of staff, which I think I like consuming both, I think is like the good middle ground.
What are you doing with it? I guess it's like I think it's trying to work out
so with the internet, everything feels closer to home
I caught and anybody can watch a nine hour fade of a helicopter. Korean Li Yeah, feel lucky they like oh my god I've been they have boomed along that bit like
and so I think their reason that there is a part which is you know, if you quiet you're complicit or whatever based on you know, it's the, you're taking the side of the oppressor if you if you're not sort of actively speaking. There's also I think, like the UN Office is like, overly privileged but managing your own anxieties as well as being like, Okay, if I consume all of this all the time, like I want to have Many people are consuming this content all the time as a way of trying to build empathy for what's happening, but in return ends up just exacerbating their own anxiety and so that they they're not actually being productive.
Yeah. Well, it's hard to turn away. I think that's how I don't know how many people maybe there is. But people's process of saying I want to build empathy by watching this and understanding. I want to be in the know, it's pretty quick by the time you get captured by it, because news is trying to capture your attention and sell it in a certain way or display whatever they're wanting to show. So then you're then it's their narrative at that point. And so then news is, you've been served up something in the way that they are saying it
seeing it as well. Well, I think that part of it when these things happen is you can reflect on Okay, what am I doing 365 days a year about this stuff. And that's the area that I think is interesting. Is that like, okay, there's the, the movement bit, which is can be very productive because it can change minds and make change and all that sort of thing. But I guess the the reality of the Seas one incident that's representative of all of these other things that have happened, right, well, that's the wound being opened
again, that's what that explains, you know, this is not the first time this is the thousandth time, something horrible like this has happened to black people in America. Yeah. And so that what we're saying is just a moment like it has to coincide with what's happening at the moment with Coronavirus and PayPal being in isolation and to remove any sort of warrant for this to happen, but it's like, people are at a moment where they're like, we need to do something. People are bored, but also
Yeah, it's sure they support but it's also working out what does freedom mean to people
woman was interviewed this woman on the sidewalk in LA and she said, I was tearing up, she was tearing up. She was saying in, she's like, in 10 years, when I look back and see what happened, and tell my kid that I was out there fighting for something. That's what this means for me. And it was it was nice, because I was thinking about, like, when things do change, how's it it's something that something had to happen for it to change? And this is a moment where as if this is not going to change it. It has to Yeah.
Yeah. And it feels like I think the interesting thing is working out what it means for our context as well to like, I think that they're reasonably I guess, because of popular culture and all these things like out like the US is such a big part of our media consumption, but then also the reality that we have the our own things at home. And so I think in that Just because like so say on the thing with the helicopters and stuff, just because Meteor isn't pointing at something doesn't mean that it doesn't exist here. And so that's where I, I go where it's like, Okay, what does this What are these? And for me, I think it's easier for me to understand it from like a sex thing. So like a male female or that like I feel like it within the workplace or you just I feel like I see that casually happening a lot more. I feel like there's a heap that I need to do in regards to the rice stuff because I feel like I think that in the US, there are more black people in the US and so there's more like you're seeing these issues. You see more, more stuff happening.
Yeah, high chance of something happening. Yeah, it's, it is true. I mean, like, things go on. things come go in ebbs and flows, like what people are focusing on. Yeah, I can and it's clear that there's a lot that has hit the backburner because it hasn't been the important thing over the last three four months
Yeah. But then it's also like I think the stuff on the Justice bid I think it like as a as an idea like you think about like I watch the Epstein Docker like the whole all the episodes that's like so fucked up how bad the system like how badly the system traded victims and also I think that like my assumption based on like, I think can spit when you hear conspiracy, like thrown around you think of the some it's sort of we associate conspiracies with things like 5g and all this but then there's like actual, like, conspiring against people. And like that was clearly like a case of conspiracy. It makes you think about the world. You say like Trump, bank it like you say all these people even Clinton being connected with Tucker these extremely shady people.
Yeah. Kevin Spacey. Like they all these people are connected to. Yeah. To Jeffrey but I mean, God, and then you don't know. I mean, how do you know? Have you looked into the Jeffrey Epstein conspiracies there's not a conspiracy saying that he never did it. They're all conspiracies of that it's a much bigger thing than we know. Yeah. All these other people are involved. It's organised and then he's like, some agents. There's one of those like this it is mind blowing. The guy was an absolute freak. Disgusting pig. It's horrible. Yeah. Good doctor. Like do you see something like that and say good taco or it's like mind blowing like bomb This is? I have no idea like important stories that needed to be told.
Yeah, it's interesting because like their reason that thing around The weirdness of stories like that you think about like Netflix or whatever, and you've got, like so many options. And it's leaning into. Yeah, it's this weird thing around like education versus entertainment and all these, like in making sure that like, even with the news, thinking about, like, why are we consuming certain things like, are we consuming because we want to understand what we're consuming, because it's not to dislike say, with cars being on fire and explosions and shit, like, like, it's not too dissimilar to a movie. And so there's probably a large portion of the population that viewing it as a form of entertainment, which is pretty fucked up.
And there's a there is a disconnect to it. So you watch it and you react. But yeah, like you're saying, you're reacting like you're watching a film. Mm hmm. It's like when people have broadcast mass shootings. And it's like, you can't tell the difference between that in the film. And so I think It's more like the hearing of someone on the ground talk or seeing some of the beautiful people that are standing up. You know, for everybody on the ground. It's like, that's the shit that's moving into these individuals. The Innit Killer Mike, have you heard of him killer Mark he was on Rogan he did this amazing speech to black man and he just gave this absolutely moving speech. And it was just like these people who come and he's like, I don't want to be here. I want to be here right now and he did but he just said I have to be in and did this the and I was just there I mean, they're the people that in these moments just bring calm decay off. And and there they are the ones directly affected by this.
Yeah, it's Yeah,
it's full on I just kind of like America seems like it's out of control, right like over the last. That's my interpretation from the media and seeing what's going on
in the world. Then bring in the fact like gun laws and like you think about all these things and saying how quickly like just before we jumped on the stream, I saw a truck was headed towards a bunch of rioters or whatever. In one of the cities. It's like, Did you see the actual video there? Now? There are two two police cars ramming right into massive crowds of people.
Yeah. Oh, God, so screwed up. And so yeah, there's
it wouldn't What do you feel about like, this week? Even last week, it feels like it's starting back up like Australia are trying to start the engine back up. And I was thinking about what that feels like seeing more people and having to do things that I wasn't doing for months and how do you feel about starting back up and what's your, what's your view on? What has changed and now what we have to do moving forward like Well, I think that part of it is we don't know like I I catch myself making plans of what the future is going to look like.
And then putting a big Asterix on I can't say Asterix, say that, can you add that to my millions list? millions, millions, millions and millions. Yet, like we don't know where things are going to be. And so I think that so much of where I find or seek sort of calm is looking ahead and saying, Okay, this is sort of where we're headed. But yeah, I think it's like very much on the back burner. Because it's like, so for instance, even when it comes to like, hiring staff or things like that, are you in a better position to hold out like, we don't know what the government's going to announce next with job caper? What's happening with job maker, all of these other things. And so then it sort of puts you in this Limbo where it's like, if if you create a business for a market then All we have to do is like look at the market and understand that things are changing so rapidly. So making any sort of big decision right now seems like so at the moment, it feels like a bit of a survival
thing you like, yeah.
100% because then you like I was even just thinking, one of us gets sick, and then all of us have to be at home. Like it's and that, you know, that's certainly one part of it. But it does, it does feel like a reset of everybody's vision, because it has to sort of adapt to something that is new. We don't know what that new is. So everyone's in a bit of an idle like, you know, showing up I think people are probably work. It's probably more people focusing on themselves and working on themselves than ever. Because it's they're forced to think, what am I doing? How am I providing? What about am I
identity as well? Yeah, I think about And I would go on at least like a month traveller travelling every single year. And so then when that main thing that we know that we do every year what does it look like now? The travel guys
become protein. Yeah. It's
really? Life cash. Yeah. I don't know how much
You need to get him on special chemists warehouse. Yeah, when they're on special. They're real cheap.
Yeah, I mean, travel is going to be interesting.
When can you imagine us going to LA? Anytime so not that that's the most important thing but just that's what we did. privileged just bought tickets went over. spent time their cute little Airbnb. When's that happening? When's God boy going back to Byron? Yeah, well, you know, when you
Oh, yeah, I mean, when service is going away.
Is that true? First, I've heard of that.
Yeah, no, he mentioned it on the show.
I thought it was good.
Going to the barn on the 20 on the 21st he taking a Georgia boys Hump Day replay off. Have you thought about that? Actually, think about it. Because what Josh and I are going to talk about for a whole day is
the domestic Wednesday. I mean, yeah, domestic travel will be interesting. You know, like,
but even like
everyone's gone back to normal in a lot of ways or not, that's an over exaggeration, but like going to buy the air pods I was doing before we from got it from office works. Interesting. Did a price match classic. The guy was just like, I was showing my phone and then he like grabs my phone or whatever, which is like like the guy the computer shop. Like I was trying to do it so that he didn't have contact and I like sanitised and shit like that they had the good of us works in general. Very good stuff got all the hand sanitizer and shit today, the packing bags at supermarkets
again, I realise it wasn't a thing for months and months. And I couldn't understand I always asked why. If you can hand over the piece of the product and a bag for me to pack it.
That is true that touching the product. Yeah, but
then he said the problem is that people were handing over bags that had hairbrushes in them like Who the fuck? That's the example he gave me last night Who? Some bloke that I was, you know at the checkout boy.
And so he was doing No, no, he just said
glad to be back tomorrow. Packing bags tomorrow. He was pumped. I really he was. It was quicker, much quicker when they did it.
Do you think he was being passive on how slow you were?
No, no, no, because he's like, I'm sick of being asked to be honest. I've been asked, Well, why don't you pack bags? That's what cuz I asked a bunch of times, early days, but it's time guy. No, no different different gods. Many people work many guys work at the checkout I've never been.
And some people didn't know the rules. That'd be annoying for them to be like, like yesterday we went to the shops and there was a lady just standing there just waiting. all their stuff was like, Oh yeah, there's just like on a phone and everyone's like waiting behind. The poor kid was like, excuse me. You have to do that.
Is it like in Paris in Paris? Pack your bags? Tel Aviv Pack your bags. LD Pack your bags, but they're lazy.
pretty low and they're 23 bucks an hour I think Garmin
is it when I was a kid? There was a decent cash you get to sit on a chair.
Yeah in LD yeah you pretty much in a booth now they've fully like surrounded them with no plastic sheeting.
Anyway, I saw a few people on the discord taking up the LD offer. Oh yeah. Do you say that the cooking yet? So I guess we need it. We need a few little things. What do we need from LD? Oh no.
Just personally like I could do some the pots and pans Amy said Are they good quality though? And so that's why I'm not sure about the quality.
Well I saw someone being a little bit cheeky they bought the product from Aldi and then they were selling it now okay decided I didn't want them or whatever, and they'll charging double what you could wow this is on Facebook marketplace and people like what the fuck?
Is that still a deal though. So my next door neighbour, he's selling his motorbike and he said and I said what are you buying by law? How much you know boba just getting around some numbers and he's like, yeah, I'm selling the bike for three grand more than I paid because he bought two brand new plus a trailer for a good deal. Got a good deal and then he's selling it for three grand more than what he paid for it on him.
Yeah, that's good. And it's
and then that is still a good deal because it's a bit like a new bike. But I mean, if you can pots and pans
A bit ridiculous. You've got to do the megaphone the second one but before we do that serves in Discord. My asks a bunch of grumps integrate the daily talk show into your dating app. So it's a message or your bio Yeah,

What do you mean as in how many people see it? Like I was just thinking about well spent that's the first thought and then I thought no, Josh thinks about these things. And so Innovation Fund it's about

And so Shawn has written listening to the daily talk show podcasts, guys. I respect which is solid. And so who else was there? The other one was Jake. Okay. Let's say done.
