Coming out of the bathroom.
That was great. It was awesome. It scared me.
It was on the side that you were
sorry, guys. Sorry. Everyone's here. How are we all?
Good? Good. Can we feel like, right? Yeah,
fine. I mean, that's
a feeling that I'm sort of question. Yeah.
Jesse growing up in Bendigo. Yes. Catholic school.
Yes. What How? How strong is that? Like, is it like so I did ra in school. isn't like religious education every week and things like that.
Yeah, and There was a church on the grounds as well that we would go to. And yeah, it was like obviously Yeah, aces he curses
and then just regularly throughout time Mm hmm. Yeah.
I still remember the songs. So there's like,
stuff that you have to remember my prayers and shit. What are the what are the the go toes?
It's all it's um, I mean, I can't remember the press off the top of my head. But I'm like Father who art in heaven.
Hallowed be thy name. Yes. I didn't come I will be
done making that Oh,
no. He's in heaven. That's That's why I'm impressed. Yeah, that is pretty good. Yeah. Can we keep going? Yeah, I can.
So good, you guys. So TJ did you go like eat like Easter and stuff would you
went to went to like a I think I went to a midnight mass once. The church forced me to get a tattoo on my back of a cross.
How did you get the how'd you get the cross? How did that come about?
The Father, Father, the priest. He was ready inside visitors.
Now I just got it. What do you mean? Now? What made you get a?
a crucifix on your back? 17 year old kid.
Thing is a great idea. How was it? How was it? How was it? I mean, that's a bit it's a bit of a statement, isn't it? What?
I had lots of young man. So we're getting tattoos crucifix, though. What do you mean? I just crucifix like? Yeah,
yeah. But it's like you guys not going I have no, no business in religion and then getting a crucifix There's your assignment. So you're a Catholic. I grew up in a Catholic family. My mom went to Catholic school, you know, much more religious than them. her upbringing was much more religious than the upbringing that we had. But we still you know, had a connection to the church.
Was your mom happy when you got it?
She didn't mind. I think she came with me all girls school or was it mixed?
It was mixed. Yeah. So when Catholic primary then I went to a private school and then I went to a Catholic school for you. 12. I just decided to leave. Really? Yeah, just for one year.
Yeah. I mean, I did the rounds. But it was, I mean, that was just a sort of tactic to any school kid myself any time to be honest. Where can it Where else can I cause trouble, but leaving it you 12 that's a big move. And you have made it your other school?
Yeah, I guess. And that was the thing. So a lot of my friends went from my primary school to the Catholic school, and I went to the private school. And though I had friends there, and it was a really, really good school. I was like, This isn't for me. Like I'm more social than this because it was very much like, like a proper private school, especially when it's the only one in Bendigo as well.
Yeah, so I decided to leave
so what Where did basil go? Our homie basil. He
was he was where I went for you. 12. He was at that school previously, but he was older than I. Okay. Yeah.
And so what we was the reason for deciding to go to a different school.
Probably like the social side of things like the private school, the potty
baby, it was
pretty much came down to that because the private school they had half the house system as well and so I'm quite a sociable person. So I'm going around to all these different houses and being friends with everyone, but they're quite clicky it's like I'm in a head or Millwood or whatever it was, you know, we had
a that was my I was a house captain.
Like a very different in a public school scenario than a private school because like Do you remember your house? It was a blue house? Yeah,
definitely not. I think
I went to St. Kevin's for a little bit. Fancy school Catholic college that I have not had the best reputation
with my school's name, what's in Kevin's are so Catholic college.
athlete Catholic college Yeah, what's the school face? So Catholic school Catholic, they're not private. So you've got like the private school so Wesley these topping, like, up to like Melbourne grammar that are exorbitant fees and then you have Catholic colleges that are like a private school, but they're half the price maybe six or seven grand a year instead of 20. fuckin $7,000 Yeah, it's incredible what it would be now to do you 12 at somewhere like Melbourne grammar, ridiculous, but
it's more like 30 grand. Yeah,
yeah, I mean, it was always like going up every year. I remember hearing about it as 18,000 at one point and then imagine sending five kids through private schooling at 30 and the guy that came to my house the Oh my god, Melbourne girls grammar. 35 grand what year though? So that is each year. So 10 D 10. mentioned tenant living in 12. Oh my god. Have a good day. Just
30 bucks for science work
you want to buy fi or you can eat one price, not Eric and you didn't have to. So you nine these private schools go away for a whole term like when we went to Clunes which was rascals rat town Gold Rush town is awesome as a whole term eight weeks away sick saves you look like you're saying a ghost. Yeah,
Shillong grammar. 41 grand. Yes. Well, but then
shalom grammar is a boarding school. I'm pretty sure so you
so you're getting a
that's a good deal. It's like they get the kid out of the fucking house. 40 grand probably cost me 60 at home without it. Yeah. 36
I mean, it's expensive.
Like seriously the year dedicated. So how much do you cost her stay at home? I don't know. Hopefully not 60 grand a year. What do you make here?
Let me see. Yeah, I mean What's rent through rent on say 500 bucks a week? What are you looking at? 52 weeks. So 25 to 3025 to 30,000 35,000 is what most people are paying for rent, whether it's with a, like a hat. If you've got housemates, spreading that across like we pay 575 90 a week for a house for a three bedroom townhouse. But like, do the math on that for you. And then tell me and I'll tell you what I think
was like that would be fine.
With the finances,
like 20 to 25 grand.
Hmm. So these times 30.6
grants are great. They pay for the buses for sport, activity and academic purposes.
If your kid wants a new Polo
speaking of being at home, yeah, I got presents from mum. Oh boy. Yeah, did you? Well, slow.
You know what? Last time I don't feel like I got a present for you, ma'am. Because the problem you have a kid and then I mean, you just get forgotten. Can I give you the book?
You haven't even got I got it. I gave it to him. No, I
gave you the book. No, you gave me that book. But then the person that was coming for me from Josh and Josh never gave it back because he was wanting to
put it on me. So George's mom Karen,
you know what Sally says about the guy with the bookshelf.
Can Don't worry about it. Listen to the episode.
No, but no. So your your mom runs a bookshop? Yes, she was generous enough to get us some books. Thank you atomic habits. Great book. James clear, great author.
So where it came from James clear. Yeah. No, as in that book, you might
say it's just over here. That's okay. So good. So she sent me down some gifts, but they're not books.
Tell me you were disappointed last arkin is also quite funny.
Josh, Josh has got his own present. Now that he's the tea guy.
I think that was before she saw my video,
Josh. Yeah, Josh, you've got a nice tin of barn Chai, sir.
I've never bought a tonne of
different different type of containers
like a loose leaf to me.
Like the lemon drops or the raspberry drops that you would get in a
soccer field. It's not lollies, right. What is it? It's it is leaf tea leaves.
Yeah. Delicious for my beautiful beautiful char.
And TJ and saves. You've got a shared jar of Byron Bay peanut butter. Oh, yeah, I'm happy with that. No, I'm having that. Lovely
as I mean, that looks so yummy. office that's office peanut butter. You know, take that shit, buddy. Okay. Obviously you will want to take it.
I've got it.
Well, I mean, I'd rather know about that than any cookies that you give him.
He did say it the other day and he was yelling for peanut butter.
He came upstairs with a spoon. And he's just eating it. You see?
He's a loose unit. Yeah. Anyway, so that's nice. Yeah, would it would it just get
Jessica's say, Yeah, she got
a mother about
can we leave these at the office because they a nice
office supplies. Okay. Do you have your names on top? If you are?
I'm excited for this job. I reckon Josh would want somebody to follow you. Thank you. And so is that a local, young
local nursery paying up about a car crunchy she said crunchy or smooth? I said crunchy.
Is there anything that doesn't come out of barn? Seriously?
That's a good question. I think there's a barn by brand of like everything firing honey definitely. Has tomorrow by laga Yeah,
I mean stone stone wood. Yeah. If it isn't, then there's the bar and by law, it's like, oh, yeah, I think I think it is equivalent to cotton draft at this point. It's definitely coffee. Coffee coffee blends, Chris Hemsworth Chris is a murder murder mystery podcast.
How hard it is to harvest your own honey. Not hot at all Amy
was saying for future plans for our own place like our own honey. I'm gonna own honey thing. You know? urban beehives Yeah, you haven't guessed how much honey that
was like 10 ladies Yeah.
Think is 10 kilogrammes a year. Can you look this up?
Yes. Is it 10 metres? Isn't that interesting fact. Hang on.
Yeah, it's it's the same, isn't it? Yeah. Well.
It was 100 grammes of water of waters
now we're talking water dude of water. This is why I don't believe it.
That's interesting. So what why? More 1000 kilos of feathers or 1000 kilos of breaks
same because you've, you've classified the exact kilogramme each, we haven't gone from a millilitre range to a kilogramme
you would have said that so much as a kid
so, yeah, so this Chairman Rick was looking at getting them free our place yeah. And so they could have just pulled it out 600 bucks a year to rent them
to Ronnie. That's good. Why don't commit
30 grand a year. I'm not
sure about it. Because I'm not sure what what do you not know like well, you
don't want to maintain them because what if what if they like what am I saying watch these What if they get out of hand what if what if they get a you could call it
security for bees.
come around. The reason I don't rent my I don't buy my places because it's worth $790,000 750 you don't have a deposit. I don't have that cash. Let's be honest
and also because the the roofs falling yeah yeah
that's it. Yeah. Well so so my reason
yeah so they they come over I mean a bit annoying for you Josh just admin wise four to six weeks they come around
now he can't you're not gonna eat an apartment block
by no no no but if Joshua and his own house I just the admin if someone
was a house I'm sure could still get it.
What do they need? Nothing just a bit of land.
They need land but were they
small as a tiny backyard and they're in a little container?
Yeah. And yeah, so you get about eight kg of how many bays and plants nearby
you get 80,000 bees right they
lie and they don't get
me ice thousand bees in my house.
My God is supposedly Amy's friend had one. She worked work with this guy. 10,000
If you had that before eBay, it'd be the scariest fucking thing is, you know
They don't they don't sting you. They're not gonna sting you. Are you one of the gods? If you say bye you lose your mind. I had a bee that approached me when I was
I was stuck in a theme park ride with strapped him strapped in held
down by the bay.
I couldn't do anything.
Yeah, I think it's, it's great because it pollinates all the plants around.
Can you I agree with you Josh. It's took too many bays for a house. They're not
they're not gonna if you put them in your backyard, you're not gonna notice them.
80,000 Bay's main. Well, in a harness, single hive. Yeah, so the
hive coming going night. It's like, you know,
with the id 10. So the first days fact, no
harm so they say that you get 1000 bees consistently.
Can we just work out the kilogramme age of 10 litres of honey and if it is, well you get nine kg of honey but 10 Yeah,
how much Honey why
Yeah, that's what we want. That's why
it seems like it would why more by stone? I like
I understand I fucked my tea two nights ago by putting too much honey in Bray said do you want honey? Yeah, no thank you because I put like a big teaspoon of honey. I feel like it didn't have enough impact for what it was doing to me who's on the water?
Yeah, yeah. Anyway later is 1.43 kg hose right?
that's not true. So the water
so it's 1.1 so one to one is water water is one of
many indeed my mind. thought about it.
Definitely high viscosity
wise. a kilo of feathers or a kilo of bricks.
The same. On the other one is if you drop a pebble
Yeah. From a from a roof. Yeah. Or if you drop a boulder. Which one will hit the ground first? How much do they weigh? Doesn't matter. hundred kilos for the boulder and 20 grammes for the pebble take the 20 gramme one more time go faster to start with hundred hundred D
are they reaching terminal velocity?
Yeah it's not what I'm pretty sure they land at the same time you're pretty sure
true answer and say these aren't eyes. what it was I got to hear what
they said babies are making honey what to come watch
no bees are doing more than just making honey bro. I know they're babies putting the flowers making them honey spreading seeds. While
I was still pollinating shit to
believe it or not, wasps do more good than harm. They play a vital role in protecting guns and farm crops feel like you're controlling pest population
who's been stung by a wasp and actually really knows it or they captured flies, caterpillars and beetle larvae are they just savage killers? Jason Statham in a beef in a flying format. I tell you what I've got into. I've been watching stuff as because we make videos. You know you watch something with a critical eye understanding how it's made, how it's edited George can't watch something with that sort of just there's the command and grinding things, you know.
I fall asleep in every movie.
Also by the direct plot, yeah, it gets him off into a nice day.
Last night last night I set had some time watching the Big Dig hand digging out 100 year old basement. See YouTube video. Just I've I found the camping guy who does like urban camping and like, Hey, guys, I'm at the front of the cop station and I'm in my my patrol car and he's not even a coffee. I'm just in my car. I'm gonna do a camping adventure and strap in. He's cooking and he's back. You know, I love him. He's the worst editor, the worst camera person iMovie but the best video and there's something about there's something about people who don't know how to make videos, but just giving it their all which makes up for every piece of they can't do it. And it's just like this is the best fucking video ever. This guy, the Big Dig. These are his usernames poppers cottage spell offers p o double pay a pasta free s cottage poppers cottage. This video that he posted in fed this year. 1.1 mil 1.1 mil? And he's digging out he's he's digging in his basement. He say digging out. So anyone grew up with a house with a basement now, so it must be Yes, I see that. It's like a basement has a slab at the bottom of it. Whereas like usually, houses are built on slabs that are at straight level. White says
lobbies underneath the ground. Yeah,
so they must back in the back. Maybe in America, it's a thing to do to get to the head when I dig down and slab it, and then build up. And so there's a structure
like an underground carpark.
Yeah, but it's just for random shit. Like, it's just for the basement. Think about all the houses. I mean, they're Cyclone basements. But there's like basements in America you see in the movies where the like, yeah, home alone. There's a basement where the washing gets done, and he's down there. And there's like a little peephole out to the outside. Yes, but it's
a lot of them in the family. You have one? Yeah, I had one. Definitely. Just under the house, but it was. But it was she gets it. It was really gonna go down there in summer because it was so much cooler. What was in there? Music stuff and my drums down there.
Is it a rumpus room?
Just like a like a basement like,
yeah, it's a basement since she looked at rumpus room. What's a fucking rumpus Well, yeah, yeah.
You know, basements remind me of
goosebumps goosebumps all the books you read haven't read any of them. Yeah.
Had the bone
Yeah. happen young feed in real? What's his name? Ah Oh yeah. Ah ah Real Monsters which is a Nickelodeon show. What was the guy's name? So first thing are just a quick rundown. This is a noisy disturbance. Okay. I'm sorry. You do your noisy disturbance in the room. So you can do some noisy disturbance. So rumpus room could have table tennis table dots, that type of thing. Yeah. And so who who wrote our real so an RL Stein? Yeah.
Yeah. This guy in the ceiling would have been five feet tall. So it was like a real annoyance. You couldn't actually walk around in these basement and so he just added storage. He went down and he like, broke a hall. JACK hammered all the concrete slab and like dug down tin face into
the house. didn't have it. He meant to the house initially didn't have a rumpus, what's it called basement basement and
I had a basement but it was just like a useless storage basement and he then dug it out. So they broke the floor open, took out all the rock dug through, the dirt went down lower. So then it was like a 10 foot ceiling had a golf has a golf range in there and like a gym had a full Smith machine in there. Squat racks. It's just a piece of gym equipment. And it's a squat rack that is has a bench press that runs on tracks up and down. So it's like doesn't go offline, but it has like a squat. It's like an assistant squat rack bench press, all that stuff. Anyway, dug at that. But there's just something about all four videos. Awfully edited from a technical perspective that I'm just in love with at the moment I respect so much
morning. Someone cutting down a redwood tree Solid Oh watch that 250 metres high. Wow. And they basically are 250 feet. Sorry fate
is fate. Do you think it why the same is honey?
Depends half of the base.
So 76 metres that's pretty big. Yeah.
Like he hasn't even googled
and sorry. This person is on like, what is it called when you so strap yourself in and you said working on abseiling? Yeah, okay, sorry Larry's a tree Lapa. Yeah. And so, tree loppers, blah, blah, blah.
P er, tree lava.
And so anyway, this person is at the top of the tree or near the top and they do one incision. And then they do two incisions. And then so they almost do like a wedge shape. And then they go around the other side of the trade. This is when they're up for set. What is it? 7676 metres. Then they using a chainsaw, the chainsaw the final bit, and it falls down. And then they hold on to the tree as it rocks.
I mean it's a pretty solid traits. It's probably alive for 100 years and it's going 76 man. It's a pricey size. Can you send me the link for that? Oh sure. I'll share mine with you if you're with me. This is great video of this bloke cooking zoodles
what a skewed kebabs event in fact, it's it's in a vertical it's in a vertical cooker and he's in the middle of the snow and so he's figured out like a white it's hard to get on that because it's
like kebabs in the snow.
Definitely great. I think we could definitely do something around outdoor slash camping videos on
this one. The best bit and this is like, you know, when you as an adult, you're like, I wish I could have this room really clean. You're in a messy room and then you click your fingers and then you've got to like eat hard cut to it. It being completely clean. He's like Oh look at this basement It's so dirty I wish it could be cleaned and he clicks his fingers and it fades over about three seconds
just plain room I respect that Tommy jackets special.
