Present. Yep see
present and Josh
present always present Harry lodges in the building and he's prisons but he has no moxa
you love that you love referencing paper without microphone? Bring the vibe into it so it doesn't. I feel like as a podcast, do you think it's a good? Is it necessary? I don't know if it's good, cool. It's in the building. I'm just trying to bring the energy for the show. Yeah, you did. Well, I think we could bring the energy without it. Not without you. We love you. But you just don't have the the clapping is very funny because when we had dumb on the show on Thursday,
if you watch back the video, the star the star of the video. When you introduce DME, you'll see selves do an open hand expression like he's going to clap.
I mean, it's a bit of I won't have it. Did you clap? He left under the table? I should I really should have led to
hear it a lot. Yeah,
but you could say the. Okay, got it committing to a clap, go for it.
Yeah. I just think we need to get better at actually knowing whether we're going to clap or not. Let's just get a clap clap
sound effect. Oh, yeah, I need to get that centre. We'll just clap by yourself. That's fine.
It's all fine. I would have appreciated that What if he joined in if I clap?
To be honest, I'm surprised services here this week. Why? Ah, what you did earlier in the week. Right.
putrid. Oh was a mistake. Remember how you using the chopping board? And you were eating your cap skim? Ah, what happened? Oh, yeah. And also I I came home from work and We had a freshly stocked fridge and said it was red pepper. It means that the Grand High right there was red pepper and there was hummus and this is like the real primer organic comments how much is the hummus it's about a bola
Biggie Padme or Bella bola
yeah it's called a I think it's just called all gone organic indulgent or monogamous yeah it's about five between five and eight bucks what colour is the lid? Like a light sort of brown well the yellow one is the classic big give me How about you media? Yeah No it was a red one is that's a pretty can't afford the you mean I don't think you can get it calls. Okay, so that's that promo it is it's like IGA or I think calls it's pretty pretty.
But anyway, so that was in the fridge and so I went in, got some red pepper and I started cutting it on this board that had a bit of cauliflower on it. Okay, that's all good. Yeah. And so I finished one red pepper. And I started cutting my second one because I was gonna make dinner. And I was just gonna have like an omelette. And so I went back to the same board. And my brother Sam is on the other side of the room and he yells out, oh, no, don't use that chopping board. I was like, Oh, why is like, I've just had chicken all over. Oh, and so I've just cut my red pepper with the same knife as the chicken on the same board. And so the thing is, when I was when I was eating the red pepper, there was this little like thing on it and describe it.
Well, what was it like? Well, it was like, sort of a little bit like,
sort of like how messy raw chicken colour. I close
it off kind of raw chicken. And so
I put my I tasted it, I touched it.
I'm sorry, sorry. And it doesn't really taste like anything and so I better just wash it off just in case it's not harmless to wash it off, but I took on salmonella. He took it on. I took
it on here. That's why I'm I'm proud of you might Yeah, because he didn't get taken down.
Does anyone know what salmonella actually is? How does it actually work? It's
bacteria, isn't it? Well,
yeah, well, so why did chickens Get it?
And what I don't think it's the chicken that gets I think it's the bacteria breaking down and then causing.
Okay, so chickens don't
leave suddenly into cific thing. There we go.
It lives in the intestines of animals and humans and is shed through faces. Okay.
And so yeah, but this is the point does it chicken have it before it's like been sent off to you know, become a
like it I guess you think that it could be developed? Yeah.
Yeah. My thought was surface. It could be on the surface. So like, if you dirty, disgusting spot Which you hate Josh if that had it on it, and then you just sort of spreading it all around the kitchen when you're wiping down. I mean, we had this discussion yesterday, just where, you know, learning the quirks of producer Jess. She doesn't like a lot of things. But then again you ate you ate tuna sushi yesterday said that's not that fussy. No, but a lot of fussy people wouldn't ever go near sushi. What things don't you
Um, it's, it's not so it's not so much what I donate. It's mostly what I have to do to prepare the food. And so like for chicken for example, I have to get all the white like veins and stuff out of it. To do I actually cut off most of the chicken breasts before I cook it anything. Yeah,
you got you. You buy 500 grammar and it comes out at 120
I am sorry much I'll cut to the other day that I made my dog sick. She ate too much. That was how much I cut off. And then eggs those goofy bits There's
bits that are connected to the so when you crack it and then it's in there
and it's what if you write dots and sapphires?
What if you were in a cafe and you get poached eggs? What happens? I don't because you
don't get eggs. I don't do it properly and they've got the white grooves on it. Yeah, you probably know
well then, but what about what about then when you make Moran stuff if you're making Moran would you try the whipped sugary, fluffy Enos of
it like you're not making moraine
Natalya? Also the smell of eggs, when
I've never smelled eggs, and what a smell like I leave when it's when it's when you cook them when you scramble them. Okay, it's a very distinct smell.
Yeah, I use the olive oil
is anyone anyone in this? Alright, Ramsay. Gordon. Is anyone in this room saw cracked into a hot you know, making poached eggs cracked in a rotten egg in a crack the wrong way. Oh my god. rarely ever once in my life and I've been in a lot of eggs, dude, I cracked this rotten egg and it was the worst thing ever because the steam is pushing up
Yeah, it's like if you pee in the shower, it really sort of brings up the smell of the pay because of the steam. This happened I nearly like it was the closest I've ever come to is like, family It is so bad. Rotten Egg. You hear about them? hardly have them. But Jeez,
they've even though we make fun of all of this. I think that it is like the quirks are what make friendships, don't you think?
100% I mean, we bonded over that getting sushi this week, just listening to your quirks. And they go in but then, like you said you're fussy with food. Yeah, but I reckon no one's more fussy in this room than Mr. 97 because he hasn't explored in life. Have you had this yet? No. That's a good one for you and Gracie, baby.
Yeah. She loves seafood. So for grace said That that was one of the meals would that be her final meal? Or would it be the meal that she would cook someone? I remember saying on discord
want to call you out for not no I
just can't i can't remember to be on lockdown she loves what she does love safe it a
couple of other quirks of produce a just nodding the discord that you don't know how to use your Apple iPhone
as your credit card expired.
And I actually don't know I get shouldn't have. I don't know why it's not working. And sorry, as you know, I've been in Bendigo and the cards in Melbourne so i'll i'll try to do it tonight. Okay, and then you can download the app. I just need to save a video whatever it is
being in Bendigo any extra love for Bendigo Bank like because when when Don was talking about Bendigo Bank, there's something about not to be offensive but there's something about a regional nine being in a bank where you like,
how good could it be? I mean, wasn't Bendigo part of the gold rush? Like it's there's no ego is Yeah, man. Have you been Josh? To Bendigo? Yeah, like the huge sort of all buildings like historic buildings that are still there that Shepard and you've got everything was knocked down is pretty much just a new city and then you've got Bendigo which is historical.
And so Bendigo Bank, we you a member of bank Bendigo Bank. I was, but I moved my money elsewhere. Okay. What was the experience? Like when you were a kid, because you grew up in Bendigo? I did. Yeah. Was that like a big experience going to Bendigo Bank?
Yeah, so we had all of our mom and dad still have their banks there. And yeah, going to the bank with mom and dad was always a thing I suppose, like after school and whatnot, but um, yeah, we used to do these Did you have Dolomites as well? Yeah, yeah. an equivalent
for baby. They call it
I don't, I can't remember. Um, but yeah, we always had a really good savings account that we just put money in. As we went,
yeah, yeah, I do remember like the dolomite they had like the yellow plastic sort of thing.
Yeah. decided you savour Was that it?
yeah, it's still gonna I'm still got it.
But it's funny cuz Bendigo Bank is kind of where like if you were if you wanted to stay in Bendigo and kind of leave there and start a family and that type of thing like all of my friends a lot of my friends have jobs at Bendigo Bank where
it's like LD Yeah, cuz LD get 23 bucks and get Sit down.
Where's LD from though? It'd be like Germany. It'd be like everyone from Germany working at Audi that's like what you do if you're still in Germany? Yeah, I mean, now what I'm in the Bendigo thing. It's like Shepherd ins got the cannery like people who are on ship leave work. What's mine? Oh, yeah. And so that Yeah, there's a bunch of these sort of
areas, I guess. What's the industry the industry thing? what's what's the big industries in Bendigo?
Probably goats. Still a thing. They've got the fossil mine out there that is still mining for gold. You've probably got the Bendigo Bank and maybe construction, let's say,
and they building stuff in Bendigo
Yeah, but it's also because it's a growth area for Melbourne as well. So you've got the freeway, so it's easier sometimes to just, you know, do it in Bendigo and then transport up to Melbourne or around. You know, that Goldfield trade region.
One of the other quirks that we heard dropped from you, Jess, was that you've done a boxing match. I mean, Joe, look at George, he's right next to you. She's gonna give you enough.
How did you end up in that sort of situation?
Um, well, I've been boxing for over two years, and they do a fight night twice a year. So I went to two or three of them. And then the last one was like, maybe I'll do one. And then yeah, that's just how it happened. It was just eight weeks sparring and training. And yeah, next minute I was in the ring.
We've got PJ from Jason PJ. I understand when it's connected to content would probably do most things. You don't like it when it's gear. I mean, it's technically she's, she's getting paid to fight. Yeah, it's part of a job. That's a freebie. You just throw it in there. What did you win? or What happened?
and I actually had to pay to do it.
How much? It was
Tommy jacket question about
No, it was $600. Oh, but if you sold a certain amount of tickets, you would get it back. So and I did so it was technically supposed to didn't pay for it. But I could have lost that money.
It's like your position or something going to a pub and having to sell a certain amount of drinks or like the comedian's have to do that.
How many tickets? How many people do you see
25 $65 so I had a really good crew there.
Yeah, it was really good. And what about the loser?
I knocked her eyelashes out.
Oh, I guess it's better than tape. I don't grow back your eyelashes.
Do you know the fights actually on YouTube? So if you guys ever
put them up on the discord which you want to say?
Again? Um, yeah, but she had the fake eyelashes on. So go ahead and grab back. I don't know why you would put that on before a match. But she came out and I just remember looking at her during the match and seeing them all over her face just scattered.
And did you did you have a song that you came out to?
Yeah, really? What was it?
partition by Beyonce?
Can you can you just give us a couple of lines?
Well, it's kind of just the bass at the side. It's just like, it just keeps going.
It's I can't remember it's like a driver. Roll up the pot. Please, you know
how long did you last the whole fight? Or did you take? Yeah,
I know I didn't knock around.
was, um, it was anonymous. Sorry. You know
how many rounds
332 minute rounds
that was the hardest. Why? Because
there's adrenaline too and you just your heart is just thumping. Yeah,
it is so hard. You get hit.
Oh, yeah. Actually, there's a point when my neck was just back. I don't know how I'm coming out of this. But um,
yeah. Were you angry? Yeah.
As soon as she did that, that really fired me up and you can actually say it I just Yeah, but
why after this? Do you think he got more punchy in real life?
Um, yeah. My
number and my dad. Come on with
mice goes to the gym and starts looking at his abs. You go to the boxing ring and stop punching bag
and sorry the sparring any sort of tips for how to spar properly
don't do it it really
no I yeah it's just copy your face essentially because it really hurts.
Okay and so at that point should you just not you probably should just use boxing pads yeah
yeah just eat the bags or something yeah
I'm inspiring you do get hit it's like you can get a broken nose from just burying with headgear on. Well I in year 10 we did we had like a fitness like you had to pick a PE like a physical education thing and there was all different sports you had to pick one and one of them was fitness, where we where we went down into the gym and you got to use all of the the equipment Yeah. And may in this guy match two of the biggest guys in the in that course we got to spa and so everyone else was like doing fitness. From will just pay on the shit out of each other. It was good fun. I feel like you can learn a lot about about yourself. What did you What did you learn through the process?
That, that I can set my mind to something and actually achieve it, which was, like halfway through. I was like, What the hell am I doing? Just like it wasn't fun. Like training wasn't fun. It was an hour and a half, three times a week plus pay once or twice a week and then running on the side as well. Sorry, it was like drive and determination.
So and you were saying you had to like to weigh in and everything. Yeah. What's the deal? So like, how does all the white divisions work? So
because you can't because it was just, I guess like a casual thing with my gym. Like it was a proper fight.
It's not a casual thing. You've got 25 of your mates. Casual thing is going for coffee. Walking doing a bit it was in the evening.
Yeah, wasn't it
It was actually a big thing. But because it was like
podcasters will come to the next one should come
host it they have one of those people in the ring. That's it. You could do. Yeah,
I could definitely get into the bow tie. Yeah. And so yeah, the what's the deal with all the different like so you're saying it's casual? Yeah sorry Activision.
Yes. Or it's just whoever signs up and then they have to monitor you throughout the eight weeks and then about two weeks out, they start pairing you up. And so because it's difficult if you're not working towards a certain weight range, you have to put on weight or lose weight before weigh in. And so I had to drop five kilos before my in which
Sir, do you like, what's the water? Like? How do you how do you is it cut?
Yeah, yeah, sorry, cut in in the week leading up to weigh in. I was just eating protein like eggs and
tuna. Oh Yo, that would have been worse.
and then like literally two days before I was barely drinking any water and then straight after it's just like consume consume consume.
What did you wait when you um,
I went to my friend's house and we had chocolate, which is probably not great pasta and garlic bread.
This is the night before.
Yeah. And then you how'd you feel the next day?
I felt fine. Yeah, it was all good. And that were Copperhead Partridge. And I was so nervous that day, I had to force myself eight. Mm hmm. It was,
yeah. I feel like my confidence physically versus what I can do physically is very different. Like I could let anyone talk about the shit out of you.
You know, if there's one person who understands or knows how to box versus someone who doesn't know how to box, the fact Yeah,
yeah, well, yeah, I just know that they're like, unless you get a lucky shot into the jaw. You're in trouble. Do you think like I'm very comfortable when it comes to like walking the streets of Hollywood it can feel a little bit shady. Like I'm comfortable using weapons I think. But I think maybe that's my my superpower is ability to use a use use. Like I think, did you I did level level one self defence twice how long ago so you level one or two level one so I just did the one and then they offered it again and I did it again today to file and now like, I don't know what happened. It was like fighting back again. It was around the same time of the sparring stuff okay, but I learned 10 Actually, I've even done in the office. Remember I said I could get out of a headlock.
Put on this.
Yeah. Did you get out? Well, no, because the difference between having a u 10. student doing a headlock and Tommy who's taking the shit real seriously wants to fucking kill me. Like it's a bit different
dirt if you're in it. If you get into a headlock with somebody who knows how to do a hit And I don't even really know I just don't buy like this you completely cooked it
that's why jujitsu Oh half assing it
oh no but it's like at a point you are in a hold that when you move more it goes more so it's like literally just like as you move you're choking more it's crazy to think how fragile like isn't it the crazy thing how fragile we are like oh I can just hit my car down that's why we talked about this it was like we convince ourselves that
or you almost like just leave with removing the thought that you could be gone at any moment. Because we are so fragile when you look at like when I'm walking along huddled straight just takes on a push me in front of
one side you you go so fragile but then on the other side you see the the junkies around here that put their bodies through hell, heroin, heroin during the misto going and they're still around. Like there's one guy that I used to see when I was a probably 16 year old kid. Genetic hate sometimes he looks like a zombie sometimes he's like, at off heroin, just not probably not high at that moment. But he's been around for so long. abusing his body. It's crazy. And he's still alive. It fucking blows my mind. Yeah,
it's um, yeah, I was when I was at the supermarket the other day seeing people who are drug affected with kids. That's a hot, man. Like, you say, Yeah, but you just like, because you're like, what's the they're obviously trying to do their best. But at the same time, you're like, what's the you know? How the kid going on? Right?
Yeah, absolutely. No good. anything more than that? No. on the kids think that it's interesting trying to explain to kids what words mean. You think like, trying to explain what words mean to adults. kind of easy, because you use other words that you don't have to explain but a kid Every word you use outside of the one you're trying to explain is something that they probably don't understand especially when the three so in the car we're trying to explain to body what funky means. Trying to explain what funky means and funky use
movie what is gravy mean?
This is to a kid not to me not to an adult but just think about just try this as a little challenge. explain something to a point where you don't have to use words that a keyboard in general what call means.
Do you reckon he would know a call means
he could because he know but not to the extent not to the call is in like you are a cool person. Like so cool, dude. So I think temperature wise he understands temperature
so funky, I would probably explain it in like symbols and stuff. So it's a thumbs up funky sunglasses on funky. cool music. Funky is it? I think that's a good explanation.
Yeah. That's probably an approach, I reckon.
What's your approach?
No. I mean, I think that's I think that's probably the best approach
is an approach. Really the best approach?
approach is the best approach.
It's a real Spider Man. Well, I me just started using all these other words, and this is why I thought of it because I was like,
he doesn't get that either.
But as a function to come up.
Maybe we had some funky music on and you said, Oh, Jesus is funky. I didn't.
It was Amy's conversation that I was listening to it with Barney and I was just like, laughing thinking, this kid has zero idea what you've gone from the one word he didn't know to all these other words he doesn't understand. So what happened at the end Did he just given I fell asleep?
I didn't. He just doesn't know there's a balloon.
But it is like the English is quite complex. Like You say cool, but then cool has a hyper meanings. Yeah, to every word has a heap of meanings that you just hoping that they get.
Yeah, well there's like Spanish, there's Kellyanne Tay which is hot. But then there's like multiple ways that like, free Oh, I think it's like cold like there's two different types of cold and one's referring to if you have like cold water versus the weather outside it's cold and then in Russian you can mix up the word so I love you has to be said in the you know that sequence I love you for it meant to be meaning that like Labradors are in Russian, you can say it in a different sequence. Okay, sure.
Well, that's like I don't have it like it was like the English language. Can you speak a language? Yes,
And you go
any Bendigo quirks, like any sort of language that sort of specific to Bendigo. Ballarat has We spoke about it and it's moved to Sydney. Oh, a couple chat from Ballarat, a copycat from Bella. Any sort of sayings that have come out of Bendigo.
No, but we there's this thing. There's a town that's close by called Castlemaine or Castlemaine. Yeah, it's a real debate. And we also have a street called pal Mal. But is it poor mall or parallel
to monopolies? Yeah.
Yeah. Yeah. Mo FOMO. Is it poor model in monopoly? No, that's how I said that's how I said
it is it?
Bri said, pal Mao said it I said Pall Mall pulmo.
Is it castle, meno Castlemaine castle, castle? Mine, Newcastle, Newcastle. Newcastle no
brainer. Well, the castle is spelt like
a castle with Stan or Pakistan.
I don't know. Pakistan. I've never been Can you tell us?
I don't know. It depends who you speak to. I think it's just like a I don't know, which is right, because people will say like the stands thing like Afghanistan, Pakistan. Could I think I say, Stan,
Pakistan. Have you been?
Pakistan? Yes, yeah. And they were there. I was there for three days. I was doing filming for a for in Bartow, the tech company. And we went on a Pakistan International Airlines Flight, which they just were in the news like three weeks ago for one of their planes going down. But it was Kal to Lahore. And it was the only direct flight that we could get. And so nice on my mate, we went on this plane 30 minute we fell asleep because it was huge delays. It was like 24 hours of delays. And we're in KL and we just sort of like at the airport the whole time, and we're sleeping on our key. Anyway, finally get on to find out. So after all of these delays, we get on the plying full list, SLAPE straightaway, we're in the emergency exit. And we get woken to an announcement saying they didn't fit they did English is like the second like they had the first language and the second one was in English. And they're like we don't feel comfortable going over the ocean. We have engine troubles and we're now flying back to KL All right. And so the other thing too is like the carpet like it seemed like one of those like, old uplines where it's like there was definitely squeegees and stuff that was smoky previously, you know, it's like almost had that sort of vibe. It didn't feel that great. Yeah, I don't know whether I'm butchering the memory but I remember like looking at the emergency door. And there was like a padlock on it. And I was like, Fuck, like, this is like, it looks so different to what I'm used to. And for the 30 minutes, nice on my mind, he's very, like his whole thing is it's like he's, he was just about to turn 40 at the time. And he sort of prides himself on not caring about death. He's like, I'm gonna die young and you know, he would eat whatever he wants. And so on this trip, he would eat whatever he wants. I'm like, Man, you can get diabetes. He now has diabetes, which he can't like, for someone who's like leaning into it and being like, ah, I don't care. Like he can sort of point I told you so. Anyway. So we're like, it's like, yes, it's on to something exact shaves. And so we were in and he would, he loves cereal. When he goes to the US, he gets zero. But anyway, we're landing in KL. And I'm freaking the fuck out being like, Oh, wait, like we're dead. But this is this is this is gonna happen. Yeah. And so when it was coming to land, I was pretending to be scratching my leg, but I was getting in the brace position. And like, nice, I was like, back to sleep. He was like, you know if he's getting Yeah, just think about the cereal that he's gonna eat when he's off. But yeah, so we ended up after that. We're like, fuck this because they're like it's gonna be another two days for them to get engineered. In to fix the the engine and the engine that was the reason why there was a 24 hour delays beforehand. It's like they
tell you that Oh, no,
you know, like, Are we just working on stuff or whatever. And, and so we ended up booking a week we contact her about this. We contacted, you know, the corporate airline, so the corporate travel agents, so we call one of one of them on Skype. And we because we booked all of our stuff through that. And we also went on to Skyscanner. And we found two flights that were was like 1500 dollars for the two of us to get to Lahore via Dubai with Emirates. Mike, Okay, perfect. It's like a protocol. We've got to go, we've got to contact the travel agent. We contact the travel agent, and they said, Oh, yeah, we can do those flights to it's going to be five and a half thousand dollars. And we're like you, you got to be kidding. And so fuck it, don't worry about it. We'll book through here. We then Then go on to the website. And it had gone up in price in the time that we had
would you pay?
So we ended up getting it in cut, like we ended up going into a new browser and ended up getting the good price again, that's a weirdness with this stuff is it's like all those travel sites, they're tracking your cookies and all that sort of thing. We're used there's a service called flight Fox, which they've pivoted their business but what their business was was it was like online travel hacking. And now they do it for like corporates and stuff but they would do these things. There's all these travel hacks where it's like open tickets and things like that. So we went to Macedonia and we went on three different flights and by doing on three different flights, it ends up being way cheaper than if you just go direct.
I think mediums
Yeah, sure. That Fox Business or does it take flight flight flights oxen probably pivoted again. What are the Was it still they're still doing corporate but you can also get a little button say book a personal trip here
I mean all those businesses we saw so struggle straight at the moment yeah
well you can get like very inexpensive flights like airasia and stuff remember flapper
Kappa flatter. When we had capper on the show? He was like he had to work out the cheapest way to get to Europe to London
Yeah. Took him days Yeah. Oh took a train all that sort of thing horrible I was just thinking about these like secret announcements I remember hear this thing about sacred announcement today ports, like what they actually make loads and loads that they're using. And I just found this site 12 wise airports are secretly manipulating you. What an interesting thing like it is it none of us have been to the airport.
Recently she has gone down.
What are some of the things they make sure you can see the tarmac, the signs seen subliminal messages.
Is there any mention of the s s s s on the WhatsApp on the on your boarding pass? So that happened with me because I went from Pakistan I went from Pakistan to Heathrow and I'd been growing this sick ass Neck Beard right now once
that said yeah
yeah it was it was crazy it was like really but anyway at Hey throw a guy going from the hole and it's like they have real funny about like extremism and all that sort of shit and so I ended up getting interviewed by the Federal Police Hey throw and then nice on is just so like nice on laughs because he's Persian he looks like the the typical person that would you know get racially profiled or whatever it's like he's joke is it's like they're like they going to you because you're with me but they put up a photo of that. Because on my neck bat did look suspicious. Yeah, anyone who's letting go So anyway, I landing some dodgy shit. But so I just let himself go. Yeah, when I then went on to a few future flights, when we were leaving Heathrow like two weeks later to go to the US we got like our boarding pass got a double beep when we were about to board the flight. A nice on turns to me, it's like,
we're getting upgraded.
Fuck yeah, this is great. Just come around here, take your shoes off. And so what had happened was, we didn't find out until we were in the US. But there's a thing called secondary screening. And it will have on your boarding pass it will say s s s s. And so for seven domestic flights in the US I had this and it was rare because like when, like we'll check into delta or when I'd like, Oh, look, I've got a secondary screening. And TSA then fills you up does all that sort of thing every single time. And it backfired when we were in Alabama, and nice and said, He's originally from Chicago, he's like, got to take you to a gun range. And so we went to a gun range. And I had to go which is a scary gun ranges are so fucking scary. Like, I wouldn't shoot machine guns. Well, hang on till now. It was just like the classic like he was very, like, almost fetish. You know, fetish sizes. The whole thing is like, Ah, man, you gotta pick this one. It's like, you know, doing all the things and you get to pick off the board. Like, what, it's what your target is. And so I like it. Yeah, you pick your papers, and they put it up or whatever. And but interestingly, we went to a place called gun world initially, which was this huge place out of Florida. And because they were legit, when I gave over the passport, Like, three months ago, they just passed laws, where if you're not a US citizen, you can't be behind the glass of a gun. Right? You can't be in the gun range. And it sounds like absolutely spewing because he was already let off fireworks the night before. He's like spewing. It's like, what are we doing? And the guys like, Look, we only know this because we're like the Apple store of guns. If you go to, like if you go to anywhere, regionally, there have no idea about this stuff and just give your driver's licence instead of your passport, go Samsung down the inside of a mall, that's what we did in Alabama. But then the fucked up thing was every single time you get go through the secondary screening, they swab all of your stuff and they do a test. And I didn't realise this, but the because I had used the guns and then gone straight on to using the laptop, there was some sort of gunpowder or something. And so it started doing you know what You're watching like one of those border security guys, dude. And so then they took me out the bat like, basically I went from secondary screen to third screening. Yeah, the third screening was, I mean, the only difference they found the squeegee and actually what they did what they The only difference between third screening and second screening is rather than tapping in nuts with the back of their hand. They go front, huh, really, which is almost an upgrade. That's how you look at life.
I can't believe they actually touch your balls.
Yeah, yeah, just I mean, is it just
they're not using their fingers.
They're just like, they push it What am I gonna? I don't know. But even then I feel like just if you're just palming it I wasn't I wasn't nude. Like that's what I mean.
Like, you're gonna feel much. If you feeling a gun or feeling some something you've just shoved in there. Well, the thing is I sort of it doesn't bother me. I mean, it's part of it. I mean, think about what we're gonna have to do now it will be temperature checks constantly. You were gonna go to New York for your 30th just do book you had you booked anything?
And no, I was gonna go to Europe,
Europe. Yeah, okay. Yeah. And so yeah,
I was gonna wait and see what happens but I was going to garden like four weeks
Well, how about we go a bit European at the office
get a few Yeah, we could do a euro nine or something that could be fun. Yeah. Sounds good. I wonder if we're ever going to get the travel that we got like this idea of just being able to like we did 36 flights in three months, that's going all around like is that going to ever be able to happen again, like just being able to so easily jump to all these different countries, maybe for the elite for the ones with lots of money because it might be really expensive or private places. But then they've also got to prop up all this stuff as well. So it's like if the airlines is struggling so much. But then I guess you got to think about, like, where would you guys feel comfortable going? Like if you had to go on a trip right now fly somewhere, internationally, where would you go?
Oh, okay, we land. Oh, yeah. That was really yeah. Part of the cold outside of the Commonwealth
of London. should know that. I mean, your friend Jess, who was living in New York has come home but had Coronavirus in New York. Yeah.
And apparently a lot of his friends. Like they all got tested whether they felt it or not. And they all had it. Really? Yeah. So it's just
I mean, so there's many things to think about now.
I don't know it's for
something in something that's like mountain it like something where you're hiking and not necessarily hanging out with people.
I don't think the appeals there at the moment. Like you start want to get on a plane. No, really.
I've been you guys saving pretty good. Yeah,
I'll do the trick down there.
Just before we go about this homeowners first time owners grant stuff, so what's the deal? What do we know? I know my mind is great. It's a building grant.
So we need to have a house or have a property that you can build on. There's a whole bunch of sets, but I didn't. I didn't think there's much interesting in the building thing, because I think it's out of most of our
scope. So it's 100. So I think I heard Yes, it was 150 between 150,700 thousand is the the cost of the whole build, which includes the land, and they give what 30 grand or something. Yeah, I
mean, yeah, I've done these games for years. The first time by first time owners is a bunch of stuff that you need to qualify. Interesting connection to that though. Your mate? So did you see the video of Skomer acid a building the grabbing a, you know, presentation about what's going on? That's right.
Yeah my mate Dave his mom was in the press conference on the lawn
nights mom got
people who don't know the seeding seeding grass or like Yeah, he's the and I know how funny people get especially dads it's a dad thing that if you get your front yard seated, which is let's be honest, it's gonna be cheaper than turf
by taking a lot of people do it depending on like a that turf an area and then seed on the outside or something to sort of grow out or they you know, do both or they just go full blown seeding which you need a sort of rope it off.
And it's complicated, like it's a complicated process and I end up with more weeds. It's It's It's a lot of work.
Yeah, in the sky. Mr. Scott Morrison was doing a press conference.
They messages found
some sort of like housing estate block and you know, bunch of new houses to make it look like it buildings going on we got these grants happening. And then midway through him giving a speech outcomes owner of the house he looks so disappointed he's just like let's just
say did lawn care
scammer handed it to me yet Sorry, my sorry. You said so now not everyone get off get off. I think he said Sorry.
Sorry. Sorry. I'm
sorry tonight I think he said he said all good. Like no because there was a thumbs up but I think because I was reading the comments. Never do never read the comments, but papers there were people that are like, you know, Sky he's a top like but then there's people like classic sky mo like didn't say sorry, which I don't think
I got the vibe that he said sorry. I don't know. It must have just been the way he says he was like looking really apologetic like he was really
well, I think I handled very well. Yeah, it's Funny words like you can do everything right but if you if you trip up the words or whatever,
I mean half these people probably haven't even watched it and then just see other comments and start commenting. Yeah, type at night never step on a man's lawn on a seated lawn specifically. Yeah.
