It's the daily Talk Show Episode 776 what's happening
guys? What's going on? Happy Tuesday looking fresh, JJ.
Thank you. I've got a new blue jumper on Yeah,
I actually didn't think about it before, do you? But I'll bring it up now. Blue on blue, blue beanie blue jumper two different shades of blue. I'm not the fashion guy. Probably George is the guy to ask Is that okay?
I actually like it. You like it? I like blue and blue. Yeah, and it's almost talk show blue. So yeah, fits repping the brand. Yeah. works well with your eyes.
Thank you. There we go.
Now Tom is in blue like tracksuit pants
while it's hot. It's part of the the rebrand because I've decided just to
say I guess it's a reverse brand reverse rebrand because you've done this before.
Though. This is sort of the new True, true colour coat your favourite colour to wear blue. Okay, Pop's
you don't have blue eyes though. Now. But it still makes me look fucking rad. Red looks amazing on Bodie. Peaches looks It's funny how colours suit people. But then I wonder if like I think blue looks good on you. What do you like blue? Is that your employees? Fine cream guy?
No, I had a cream jumper. Yeah, get to dirty.
I like the little numbers we got from cotton on for our 24 hour livestream. I went I went shit that I wouldn't normally do like past it like tie dye wear and I love it.
I wore that trackies last night to bed cuz it was so cold. Yeah.
Yeah. It goes in my cotton on trackies. Yeah, lovely.
Just I brought up earlier today to you guys about just like, what's our What's our system is this this operation sort of expands out. You know, scaling. We need sort of policies in place and one of them is what's the COVID policy. If someone's getting sniffles what's the game plan? Never had to really think about it. Because I've been the guy that's coming to work fucking feeling like a piece of shit my whole life, I think you end up doing it with your own business, because you get to front up and do the work, whether it be at home or just going into a share space, but that's not okay. These days now, we're down a rabbit hole of just thinking about and looking up, you know, surfaces You know, when you start looking at videos about blue lights, and they're sort of running them over stuff. I'd love to have someone come in here and just do a sort of blue light. Not that I think is that dirty, but just sort of blow our minds a bit about how filthy
Yeah, I think I think most families at home fuckin filthy like as much as you think something's going wrong at some point. Now one's flawless. Sure. You know, you could drop something on the ground, the dog licks it, you think it's clean and then he's like, Look, I have a dog. I don't have dog. But I heard a what I thought was a fact. There is no more bacteria and microbes microbes on our skin. Then there is cells in our body.
There's a good fan. Yeah,
right. And so I heard that one man. Well, here a like on the surface of our skin which you can just look at a nice, you know, sort of a bronze arm and think it's nice arm
like what a godly kid, huh doesn't look that dirty. Yeah.
But they're you know, it's like your bed it's like what's on your sheets, you can't see the skin. And so I went down that anyway oh, and then I got into a because it turns out that some scientists think that people were saying there was like 10 times more bacteria on your skin than cells in your body. And that just blew my mind because we have a lot of cells within our body. It turns out that it's one to one. But then I went down the myths and you know the ship that used to hear I spent 10 minutes reading about do you He is ever stopped growing and let's think about my grandpa who lived 100 if he's ever the evidence of URIs keep drawing that we're fucking huge dude. Funny ag is
the worry for Dan Andrews
was watching the video cuz I oh my god he looks up my grandpa
that's all I can say D loads because big loads so according to one I'm so pissed off by Mr. Nice Evans mic technique Look how far away that microphone has fallen. Yeah, before we we started doing the show I said to you okay and you said yes let's have to find a random so we moved 97 microphone because he keeps tapping the fucking keyboard during the show what's what's happening
I asked that because we did show notes after the show lines like
and so can you just quick Can we just have 10 seconds of fixing.
You could just turn his mic off and I can keep talking. I was in middle in the middle of summer to turn his mic off and George's and pissed off at Joe gentium last week, Josh, you and I matched in their market.
You see how fucking annoying that is, given the conversation we had before we go?
Yeah, he said it the last time I'm touching it and then it's just drooping. Like I said, can you tell us Mongo?
Yeah, cuz that's the I just it's very
noisy a loosening. Do you want to
know the reason why we did this piece of work? Anyway,
let's use lossing that bit with yesterday's bit about Josh. So the the load thing turns out because it was always like, Caitlin who never stops growing, which I I read a bit but anyway, I found this site that was like not they do stop growing. Its gravity. Your ear lobes start sort of, you know, sort of stretching out as you get older. gravity's pulling him down. Yeah. And then I think my grandpa probably had big ears. And you look at Daniel Andrews. I mean, you think everybody would have just this ginormous he is by the time they just knocking on Heaven's Door you know
and so the learning was that now um
well according to this was like gravity pulls them down they're not you know they're not growing excessively when we start when we're heading towards death but then I was on this site there was 101 science and health myths debunked which got me gallon So, myth I heard this one a lot eating chocolate gives you acne
um I think I heard somewhere that I remember the dermatologist when I got ro Accutane. They said the diets not connected, which I think is bullshit like surely what you wait has something to do with it.
Well, I heard that a lot too. From so I had the exact same thing, dermatologist, but I I went with it. But then I was. So I believed him because he was highly educated and a doctor and you're paying good cash
when you think of it
if you're spending all of that time To learn this stuff you would know more than I do. And so but then in my own experience, you know that it didn't add up. Anyway, it turns out false. For one month, scientists fed dozens of people candy bars containing 10 times the usual amount of chocolate, and dozens of other fake chocolate bars. When they counted the zitz. Before and after each diet. There was no difference between the two groups.
It is interesting. Have you seen the I want to hit more yet, but there's Have you heard of Uber facts on Instagram? Uber facts?
No. Either. x.
I'm gonna turn on back in the day, you know, I've just turned on your mic. I've actually
I can't talk about the Instagram deletion thing. It's gets me fired up gets me pissed off.
Well, I just I noticed that you commented back on YouTube to someone. Yeah. And you're using your personal YouTube account. That's just where you logged in.
Sometimes I say I'm like, ah, maybe it seems bigger when it's coming from sort of all different angles and then we'll jump back in throw a comment from the daily talk show.
Anyway, I've turned your microphones back on. We all good. Thank you. Well, you know, I turned mine off. But anyway, you're very close to him. The Uber Fax Service. Can you Google? Let's let's see how he goes. I want to know how many bugs are allowed in peanut butter.
He what he mean bugs. Bugs allowed in peanut butter have a bug quota? Yes, like wow, if we get more than 10 too bad Java
will go with 10 of you finding anything?
Yes. 30 or so insect fragments are allowed for you? 100 grammes.
How do they know that though?
Every jars lead time 150 plus insect fragments. Seems like a lot, doesn't it? I mean, the protein
I mean, it makes sense where you Get peanuts from with just that there'll be other shit flowing in like you buy broccoli. Oh, dude, they've all they've been forced in. At least the suburb of Blaine calls. All the same protocol you walk in, they sat down, they
grab a squirt.
No, they squirt the hand sanitizer onto your hands, and then make everybody do it. Last night, she squirted onto my hands. But before I took the liquid from her, my hand bumped into her hand and she had no gloves on. Jays and then the enforce the limitation on past error and all the foods again in this clear signs like it's on the broccoli. If you don't intend to buy
the broccoli, don't pick it up. It's a good point, isn't it? avocados would be hard to buy.
Yeah. What do you mean? Well, why are they hiring
for? Oh, yeah. Then the difference between that is you're breaking it open and then eating it? Sure. And so the problem with broccoli is eaten Yeah sure thing and so but I always think if you just stay me it's like boiling Surely it's gonna kill off he's a he's a thought he's a question I don't and none of us are gonna know the answer after human passes away that has Coronavirus in the system. How long does Coronavirus leave inside their body for? That's a great one.
Because it's like I you know,
sadly one of Amy's friend's grandfather passed away from Coronavirus but I was just thinking about you're in a hospital the bodies then like How long have you know are they treating it really cautiously? It's it's a full on thought
I can do that three days. That's just a guess. Because it can survive on surfaces for three days. I'm pretty sure it
isn't me with a she went in that thinking that's good.
I don't completely understand the whole thing like the whole day and I think so you can people will get positive results. Yeah, positive for covert 19 based on Having, like, dried up DNA, what does that mean was dried up the
names that what they said they usually dried up. And I
think that's what was happening with
DNA DNA you can get so here. Oh, that were it was he was positively testing from dried up DNA, which wasn't necessarily fresh DNA.
Yeah. What Yeah. What does that mean? What Oh, that's like Grice would know something like that, which is just on the transmission through dead people.
Yeah, scientists in Thailand have reported the first nine case for COVID.
From a dead person, the deceased was a forensic medical professional. And some will go to nothing. Wonder what that was how many days but
it's like a I mean, slightly different but you cut a head of a snake off and you can still get there still. Some of them are chompin hours later, he can get you over the you know, the venom still on the fangs. It's, I mean, this is real dark recovery. Back when my grandfather passed away Boogey Man, he, we went down to see him, because we got the call that he was that he passed away. And I felt, we got there and I held his hand on his chest or his hand or something, he so he'd gone. He was still warm. And by the time we left, I felt him he was cold. It just it was just like a moment, we just
perspective on life. And it's like, we're just this, you know, when you do your temperature, that's your body, that's your cold temperatures, 37.5 or whatever it is. And your body's just idle at that and goes up and down. You know if you're sick or whatever, but then when you go on, it's just
it's nothing for one
just gives you that real like, you know, the light switch turned off.
I was thinking about the crutches that we have things that we go to talk about,
quite literally medical goods. Why crutches, you know?
Who has a parent like
he had hip replacement? I had a moon boot crush. Some families have had them because Raul does going to have to buy again because he can spend like 70 bucks 70 7070
real good one prime math. Yay. That's the vibration. That scared me. So just to try and going
back to it what crutches Yeah,
that crutches. Not, not medical crutches but just things that we go to. I was saying before the show, I don't want to do another great story. Because that's a lot of saying, like I work, go home. Get Uber rates and things always happen with Uber rides. I'm not gonna talk about Ober rates, but then also COVID-19. Yeah, we're talking about Coronavirus a lot. If we could put a wonder if we could do the rest of the show. But we don't talk about Uber Eats. We don't talk about COVID we don't talk about Mountain death.
I think it'd be better for the end of this week for the rest of the week. We don't mention it. Okay, it's hard when Corona like last night I met him last night in the supermarket. new things have happened. It's happening in our world. You just don't go to the supermarket.
Home over eight now.
What else did you do last night? anything good and
easy. Are you in a last little bit of wine from from Saturday night?
It was good. Hi, sir. Yeah, sorry.
Have you got a crisis on your hands if you're not living crisis?
Yeah, that's a good question. No, I have been I am when I walked in today the I'm not gonna have a blow up I'm not gonna get pissed off. I seriously I'm not actually I'm not you definitely don't but the fucking seat situate the chair situation at this office is
pissing me off. Well, I've been telling you to bring your chair from home and it's mainly to prevent this moment because he
already has the ammunition that Sorry about that.
And so at the moment I don't feel like I have a desk
he wasn't gonna blah.
No, I get I think this is this is this is fair.
I don't have a desk you don't I think you deserve to have a blow up to be honest. Because of the screen which screen the screen that I that is my screen that I use for work is now the switching screen and it's not really designed. If like if I sit here and work Don't you find that like on set it's a bit annoying.
Yeah, yeah, I mean
I'm so the secret
is I've got a desk. Yeah,
buy say fix it, but I don't know if my screen fixed.
you can you can get more of these chairs from IKEA. They are still there. I would prefer to the problem is Do you want a fucking whole set of different chairs Like it was
the whole thing. I don't want to. I don't like the idea of having one chair that's different. We've already done that he brought in he's pretty much
I mean, it's it's
less obnoxious than yours because yours is a racing chair. No, no, no, no, it's just good good backs. Yours was great.
Yes. Which is more obnoxious and saves because it's just kind of
like the, the leather or fake leather or whatever it is, Lord problem. Well, when Grace was in here yesterday,
the chairs came up. She knew exactly where they came from. Was it office works?
Or I mean, you can get him from all over the seats if
she said, these are 50 bucks.
I sold them for at IKEA when we went there, Georgia boy. The other way can I say a fact we could get some more? That's great. I think there's just there's a few things in life that you don't need let for.
Now I was just thinking because I walked I walked in to the office. I was like I haven't seen TJ yet. When I say to I should go up and say,
no, it's because I'm fucking having
to work off the couch.
Do you get that? Oh, not like a job ad.
Yeah, I get it. But I mean, you do have a desk upstairs with the iMac there. But I know you want to work from your laptop. I think the issue is that you put the big mixer on your desk. Which you don't really want to work with that on the desk.
No. And the thing is that I would love for service to look after the mixer. But at the moment, he's learning how to fucking use a microphone. So how can we the guy who doesn't know how to get his mic stand working? How can we possibly trust him with the mixer? Isn't it set up now? Can you just move that's what we thought I thought the fucking mic stand was set up. I said. I sounded like a bit of a fucking cat on the sorry, from language. I sounded like a bit of an asshole at the start of the show. When we were you know before we do the show, we go live Yeah. I didn't know that we were alive. So I was probably 20% more pissed off than I would have been to be honest. IRC Can I go live now?
Yeah, go live. So I went live. And then you also still
wasn't too bad. You're still dealing with the the mic stand. So I just feel like the there's a few things. So I just need to buy another one of those screens and take it upstairs.
Is that the idea? what's the what's the list? I think that's on the list and then put the budget and then we do I think I need a chair.
I would also like
to use a keyboard night, but also write a list. This is
the time that he should be using a write off anything in Asana. Okay, great. So there's the other thing, still from Friday night drinks is the speaker's a half like they're sitting on the desk, but they're not plugged in. And like one's pointed the opposite way. Does that not annoy Anyone else?
I mean, I don't spend any time upstairs. Think this problem?
Yeah your your desk upstairs is sort of become the piano desk.
It's not even that bad like I make sure it is clean up there. You know? Jesse's start jet producer. Yes, you'll be in the office full time as of next week. Whereas which desk is she having? She gets the one up there
next to the stairs. Yep. Okay.
It's a nice little distortion. Oh, so two new chairs. Two new chairs. Sure. But I think we go with a $50 versions too so squeaky wheel
this oh squeak as it were when we were recording stuff. Yeah, I
know. But you're gonna spend 300 bucks on it per chair. At that point. You got to start somewhere. This is why we just know damn well for two and a half years with these chairs. That's what I think it's like you get your sort yourself out. And then we're good. Save Check fuckin squeaks they all squeak I find it non square. No squeaky chair. Is that a thing? Because that would be a good marketing definitely is no squeaky chair. It's a
good brand now what about if I became an exercise ball guy?
Oh, you hate that that would suck. That'd be so annoying. I reckon goofy cool, it'd be great for like five minutes and then you'd be so bored of it. You want to go squeaky computer chairs. The most common perpetrators are the swivel mechanism around the wheelbase. The sides in the back of the chair, just describe the whole chair I'm pretty sure then you can move the chair back and forth a few times to work the lubricant into the swivel mechanism. Leave the chair to sit like it like this for a few minutes and test it for any further creaking how to fix it creaking office chair. There's a
full a full cycle about us and I've realised I think that that's what I've if you've learned anything about me is like My Location sets my sets the tone. And so I think that we need to I really doubt in the home setup, and that's why I'm sort of fingers crossed that we all get sent back home back now
because I'd have to share bullshit. Now I think you've saw Do you think last
week the other option is waiting like I'm like, Okay nine months into it like you don't have to wait nine months to get a new chair for the new office. We've discussed it so I'm getting a new chair. That's exciting. I get to what a $170 budget seems fair, because then it's sort of one chair one chair. But where's that leave my desk? upstairs or downstairs? I only have one desk. Yeah, but so you're not going to move it? No. So this will be this sheet chair that I mean, now we'll stay into the show on how good is it gonna be mentioned like, five years time, comfortable chairs. comfortable, just no friction. No. Titles No shit on the wait we have
surely everything you're saying is dirt like there is versions of it it just keeps pushing out. It's the fucking metaphor for you think you're gonna arrive but you never do. It is frustrating as it is. I'm gonna have this the most comfortable chair ever in the future. But then something annoys you you get a back problem again so it's like you get a fucking
Hello will Ensign stand up was fine when he does Yes, he does stand up.
Yeah, so this is when are you going to be? When are you
going to be happy when I got the blue jumper? That's why I'm pissed because I'm wearing my new jumper. This is meant to be part of the rebrand jojen
will I pack a few junkies like and then I was like, Oh, yeah, yesterday, Joe Josh and I were walking and we were gonna go one way but he said I can't go down there. It's bad for my head. Get that it's my psyche
that because I just fucking get real punchy. I just like give back Yeah. Anger. Is that not fair? But I
gotta flip it. How do you survive? How do you not be the grumpy old man? And that the grumpy old man is totally just fucking succumbing to every feeling in his body of I don't like this I like the smells and I like the next door neighbour the fucking the car at the front they park over my spot. They're fun. You know, it is genetic. I don't know why that was a bit grumpy. He sees not as grumpy anymore. Maybe it's genetic. But it's also like you can you can change you can change I think if you are it's people who don't just say are my parents saw this outside? That's what I'm gonna be like, and it's just their fucking attitude. Yeah, sure.
Yeah, I don't want to. There's certain things that it's
like when people say I'm a glass half full or glass half empty person. It's like,
like, Yeah, seriously, no joke. Reset. Reset, reset, reset, reset. What We knew like if we're giving honest feedback to me now, what do you want to say? What changes do you want to say? Starting I reckon staying with Simpson Jones
I just want to I just want to give a version of why I think it happens is because you're so future focused that you're you're thinking about the business we will be in five years and what the fuck what upgrades we will have made by then. But then you leaving in the current time, which is great, because if you look at why we started
that cushion, stay upright.
The couch we've got a couch and it's got two side cushion because
we sat down and
that's my bag and headphones because that's my fucking desk at the moment. The thing every time we have a guest, I saw crisis just like it and everyone's surprised every time like oh, something must be like
he got Why does it design flaw?
Is it design your narrative now
that You know that you're okay with it that it's just like up
we could put it back up. It plays exactly into what I thought
we should get some Velcro, double sided Velcro.
Yeah, I've seen people do that with that exact couch.
There you go.
Yeah. I'm grateful for the couch. I'm grateful that we have this beautiful space.
You could go that way.
Might want to know what is the race version. The other version is pain day to day you could say like yesterday Georgie driving us forward. It's like, there is that version. There's also being in a world that would be unfair to living in a world of pain. Which is like At what point you got to
decide who was working with.
Okay, yeah, go right back.
I thought it was there anyway. So if we're doing a reset, what do you guys want like being completely honest, even forget that the shows on I want actual honest feedback because I don't want to talk to you after this. Either Now, hold What? I know what I don't know. But I'd prefer to just do this now and get it out. Like just do it. Oh, and don't fucking talk about it like rip the band aid off first. So what are the things that you would like to say different about me?
Yeah, I think we've covered it just being generally more positive about stuff. I think if you work upstairs, the natural light will will help. very
seriously. Look, I look at naming. I'm sorry.
I don't know. I mean, there is there is a lit maybe like a little bit of initiative in just like the chair stuff. I mean, you
complain about it, but you don't do anything. Yeah, and you always complain about it on the show.
Feels like during the day. It's like
it's a crutch. Rates it's Coronavirus so what's implied to me oh yeah yeah because
that like you needed to ask everyone else about that whereas I saw that and thought design flaw of the couch but you could have done that in mainline move on put it back in me times I can put that back up but I don't even think about anymore
because that's a catch we got a pullback I just I wonder how many when I do it no joke I think of like a montage of every single time I've done it. Yeah,
just imagine a montage of the amount of times you wash a dish with this is a bunch of stuff brush your teeth. Tell sets off.
I thought you were sitting down on the couch, like because you want it to because I'm here today to sit on my laptop. It's quite nice. Yeah,
I do it.
I was doing it the other day. It's Did you not see that transition to the
floor? Yeah, did you but there is there is disk space upstairs. Work From Home wanting office, and just It is the case it's we've gone from a small office to twice the size and remember the name of the box we used to have at the office George Mason that was off the show
there was no there was no heater there was a big desk and you always find a solution but it involves some sort of hard rubbish you know like that that fucking condom cried
remember that remove flood I was grateful that we had some economy didn't have to pay three grand that we didn't have. Like what's the other option? The other option I say from your perspective is just complain about it. And it gets you through not having works now it does. It's painful as fuck. It's it's more painful than having to clean up a little bit of water from a a con machine that was given to gifted to us by scooter Derek that took the edge off the air in the summer in the hot month. That's true.
Thanks. Good. It's it was sorry. Good.
It was something I left it there.
Some of the things that are wrong with JB if there was some office changes like or what are some of the fruit? What's the friction that you feel with you know?
People care to the degree you do. We're moving on like love the office. I fucking think it's great.
Like at what
time At what point in the last month Have you stopped Josh and thought
I'm grateful for
what we've built here and the people around us and the space like At what point Have you done that? Because
it might just how I like the people in the space I do. Jessica's great. She's very good with all the email stuff and she she hasn't been
And so like, thinking about the problems it's not like the people the people take it seems
like the ward that we have is getting squeaky I even what about the other day? Yesterday we were about to have a meeting and I could hear when I was was standing at the wooden desk there was some weird reverb that was going on so no one else could hear no one else
cared about it. You put a jumper down and fix it like no no shit. Fucking wooden surface and you're talking is going to be changed as soon as you put a blanket or jumper onto it
if you were to at home if you were to make one improvement at home yeah,
at home it's all about just trying to make the workflow easier. Storage whatever I got. Did the cow have the T shirt that's been helpful pants with this said that we've done a bunch of these things so we bought more. We bought he bought more washing baskets so there's some that live in the in the in the actual laundry and in our row. That's good beans, got that sorted. Bought a dryer. Be big take like that. Just wintertime trying to dry clothes and a baby like there is so much clothes. The baby has so much centres because they ship themselves not just three. So every morning t shirt, long sleeve jumper pants, socks, take it off, could get home might have pistes pants at daycare. That's changes pads. You got that got
rid of the T shirt and just do a thicker long sleeve now Oh well,
maybe I just it's like three is three layers is good though. Like sometimes they're a thicker longer slave and then underneath. Yeah, it's fine. But so in terms of that, like cooking stuff, yeah, no, I think we've done it like, I think we've done a lot and but we've like me, we were living with no no shelving, no real shells for both these books and then Amy bought that like, we've been doing this,
but it's certainly how we put up with stuff But then we think about how much it's annoying. It's actually taking energy it not knowing you ever. Do you think there'd be things that if you actually thought about like I actually, if I was just to do that thing that's gonna make my life so much easier.
Yeah, I mean I don't complain about I can't there's been nothing in this office that I've complained about and I reckon I love this finding God like Grand Valley it is for you Josh. You bothered at home as well like isn't some annoying things but what Like what? No NBN
Yeah, internet like that.
That'd be so that is quite annoying. But what I can't do anything about it.
And then I reckon I've been more annoyed about your internet than you have like when we're trying to set up your mobile data. When we're doing the show, and you couldn't get your fucking that eaten it and the USB thing. I think I blew up more than you did.
Yeah, I can't remember how that ended up. Has it been?
Is it a different table? I believe it was. It
was the decision. I don't
think you don't complain. You don't really like there's no I mean a little bit like it's annoying having to move things every time to do the episode. He
also I think he sees me as a complainer and then we'll say it to me when no one else is here. Like he will say, I can't fucking wait to be handed this off
to you a little bit. He's just trying to fucking be reliable. No, I'm reading it right for a little
while it's it's more like a time period where you just can enter into it and let it out. And Josh is a perfect person to learn out with because he'll just jump on it and roll with it.
Yeah, you know, it's like you always say the fucking bitches in high school that we're always just pitching together. Pitch pitches at night. This is my
problem with other words
TVD like thinking about the negative guy, I'm naked. Like if you're looking at either positive or negative as that what that entails. It's a negative quality. To be looking at what you don't have in it being like it adds a negative energy to Bonnie,
maybe you're not, I think I probably should, maybe I need to get right into optimism, like read up and go that way where it's like,
I think like meditation is a version of perspective in the moment so you're triggered and thinking it like you lean into it's like the squeak fact in the gone, you just snowball. And so it's like, how do you how do you slow it down or dial it back? 50% that's what many times I think I have because I
i didn't i didn't walk in today and be like, Fuck, like, I just I just walked so I just I just worked on the couch, but the thing is that it's, it almost feels like a simmer. So it's like a little like, rather than it being like this blow up. It's this like little annoying thing. It's just not so then. So then any other thing that happens, then it becomes like it all compounds right?
Yeah, just think like, we're making videos. We're making podcasts like it's pretty fun. We're not Yeah, we're not saving lives, save a big fighting about, you know, nurses have the right to complain about things.
Well, they go to work and put it there in front of people that could kill them to plan bringing COVID back, nobody could do
it. Yeah, it's
not it's, but what you're saying is, I agree with you that the optimum optimism approach of like, how do I be highly optimistic. It's that is a version of meditation in terms in in in terms of stopping when you're triggered to implement something other than delving into the, you know, the negative emotion so it's like, I'm being triggered right now. What am I grateful for? Well, it's interesting, the
you know, with COVID telling you not allowed to talk about him, I'm sorry, not now. You can well, just people, people dying and you would Thinking that with people dying, you would all of a sudden become like, way more, sort of just accepting of or just like I, you know, I can't get angry at Uber Eats delivery issue.
You just morphed COVID and
two things we were told was you weren't allowed and didn't know but the thing is like, it's amazing how the perspective thing only shifts so much. Like we're not like you can't go from zero to work.
It's a never ending process. The Guru's ROM das No, these enlightened beings who I spoke about not having nailed that, getting pissed off. You know? They're meant to be the holy ones, but they're like, that's the human experience. I feel like Josh is more pissed off now
than at the start.
I said that I said, What did I say before we started? Oh love God is I
can just Can you bring bring a game
and I do when I'm with the guys again? I need Okay, so we're gonna finish this episode off weed laws from around the world true or false
Alabama USA it's against the law to throw confetti or spray silly string true or false true yep it is true this law exists in Mobile Alabama and reportedly enacted for public safety reasons it's a good law actually.
I don't mind my
yeah if you've used a religious confetti like the like, my if you got the near I
it's like little rises.
They're all about Matt Ross now,
Poland. We This is different. That's true. What does that mean? Winning so throw Ross.
Winnie the Pooh is banned from old playgrounds in children's areas in
It's true would have been a wack one to make.
I could make you do a few and then I'll use some UK
it is illegal to operate a cow wine while intoxicated. operated a cow was right a cow. So
walk it. I think it's a false fake. That's
probably because that's true section 12 of the licencing act 1872 which is still in effect makes it an offence to be in charge of cattle while intoxicated.
Okay, can be dangerous. What if the same applies for horses?
Oh, this is this is a go to Ohio, USA. It is illegal to get a fish drunk.
you're right. Although the law is often widely cited as one of the most ridiculous laws in the world. There is no Ohio law, which states that just throwing a few little spanners into work and I make some rules up
Because I think it's quite a creative thing whatsoever.
It's only good if you actually can then come in with a few that are obscure. So got you know, 10 answers. You got five in there that are wack. And then you've got five that obscure, which throw you off the scent. You think there. You think it's like
a bachelor in Barcelona. You can't play Monopoly after 10pm on weeknights. true, false. It's false. I made it up. Is that good direction? That's a good example. No,
yeah, it's highlighted to you. Yeah. The only reason I knew it was false was because you've been playing Monopoly after 10. In Australia.
These say these run this is it is illegal to build sand castles in Italy, a certain part of Italy accounts either
true or false. True,
true. In Iraqiya, a town near Venice, a 250. euro fine was implemented for building sandcastles. Ah Wow.
It is A 3000 euro fine if you knock down a sand castle in Portugal true
madness. They're all made up.
UK all males over the age of 14 out of be trained in shooting along by false.
It's good to know about that. It's
I'm Brian john made the video about sort of wacky laws. And there's a funny video saying Ron's funny. Really, I think he drew inspiration. There's a guy in the UK that did it. And it's like, he has this fish that's like a metre long. It's real. And it's illegal to be running down the street with a fish. And that's a huge fucking dead fish that it's hilarious. Anyway, there's some obscure laws still in Victoria. Like you can like pubs. I have to have an area for you to top horses but Through, which
is obscure, very old school, old school. They used to ride their horses to school and stuff back in the day. My mom
She even used to get and she's on the 70 young duck. She She used to have milk and butter delivered by horsing cat in Camberwell. Wow, Lucky duck that was that's to go 1948 So, you know, 1958 10 years later, she's like in 1958 there was still horse and cart delivery of I wonder if it was like, you know, there was shitloads of cars around here.
Do a horde horsing around asphalt road?
Yeah, actually not that fucking old. Okay.
cobblestone cobblestone? Definitely but it's
down the mat. Like it's just a river style road and Campbell.
Yeah, there was Manny Gomez.
Perry Perry back as well.
But yeah, it's just That's what you call a bus but like a bespoke Now they're delivering horse and cart.
I could imagine a hipster sort of movement towards
that. Well over in Boston, I think Boston,
the Boston cowboy, and he rides around on the horse throughout the city. So there was like photos from the, you know, the protests, when there was heaps of shoot going on. And these crazy images of guy and a horse and I was like, Oh my God, this fucking paper riding to the city. Turns out that no, that's like he's doing guy there was a guy in Port Melbourne. So when I lived in Albert Park, he would ride down the beach, on his horse. I've got some great photos of him real Coke, though, but it was legal to
do with the fact app thing about horse riding is what?
This isn't great, because there's a lot of great things about horse riding, but if you want to go that
No, no, I guess I don't think we hold them up to the same standard that we do for dog walkers when it comes to the sheet on the ground. That Yeah,
no floor in Melbourne. Melbourne law around horse per member in New York we were saying a Hebrew horse poo Code of Practice
remember Collins the the horses that will go on call Colin straight oh no what's the other horse manure bagged
they have bags on the back of their bombs Oh that's right they've got they've actually got catch catches in the city like I don't think maybe
that's worse isn't it? That's fucking foul but this isn't saying a steaming up it look it actually looks like the fucking the potatoes in my plastic container from the other race. Yeah.
mentioned back in the day the smell
of oil like in the wintery countries I get it. And so I love I love the smell of going horse riding like it brings back so many childhood memories. We used to go Ghana meta horse trail ride. What does it cost? Ride
between 40 and 60 bucks. Maybe more you can go and like depends on how how long you go for you can do it. half day trail ride, you can actually do what we found getting full gronk squad together to go do winery tour on horseback down in the down in the mornington Peninsula.
What's happening with golf? I don't know, mate.
What's happening with the chair. He could organise it.
You were in you were meant to have comms with Jace.
Yeah. So yeah, Jason, if you're listening, I will. I'll call him you just selling a bit of salted water. Now before we go. Has anyone had I'm trying to work out in the aha moment where I get this crazy amount of perspective and then like I don't get angry at the you don't you don't have you had any aha Okay, have I had any Have you had any where it's like a moment where you've realised Hang on, Tommy, you need to change your life you need it like it's time to stand up and be the best view now. So
Amy, Amy had a lump on her boob. And I said, we went through the process and again, it's all good. And I you know, you just like this is gonna be fun. Now this is you know, she had a sort of lump when when you're breastfeeding, you can get like, infected duck, milk ducks. And Amy had one that was like rock solid, like you could feel this huge fucking clump and you got to massage it out most bizarre shit ever. On top of breastfeeding, which is bizarre. And we went and got tested and it was in the same side. And then the guy was lovely. Yeah, no, it's all good. It's um, yeah, we're just gonna send you off and get you tested over here. I'd like you to get that done today. Like Yeah, sure. Anyway,
long story short.
results came back and it was all good. He was really fucking worried though. He didn't tell us that he was really fucking worried. And in hindsight after hearing some people who have gone through serious shit, the same thing happened to them. We had no clue though. So it was like, worry, but it was like, No, I think we're good. He seemed really positive. And then on the other side, when we found out that he wasn't that confident, and he was sure that it was going to be something different. And it turned out that it was just a thing that went away. It was like, Oh, my God, like it was it was nothing that changed, but it was just, uh, I don't think I don't know. I think it's I think it's a I think it's a false there's no change. I don't necessarily think that change comes from something moment of high awareness. In that moment. I was highly grateful that we didn't know and it turned out well and oh my god, like, it just makes you think all the things of like, dark shit, which gives you perspective for the life you have in the moment. But I don't think it changes. So when you because you're always like you're slipping back into just repairing being ungrateful for life. And so the pancake thing is trivial bullshit. And so it has to be a constant practice. That's why people have a gratitude journal. That's why people do meditation. It can't be you, what you can expect is to be fucking ungrateful with your life. So expect that and do a practice that helps you to get the perspective.
So not really no,
not because I don't think it I don't think in my mind, the heart leads to a huge challenge. But I don't think that's necessarily how it works because it's too easy.
I thought the story was gonna lead to an aha,
it had a no it was it was a heightened level of gratitude in a moment, but I think it goes is what I'm saying.
Boys now. Capital One. Oh, yeah, for me. I kind of touched on it before but it's being around.
Like in another workplace where everyone's complaining about just the most mundane shit, and they're getting paid when I fit in now, because you can plan I think you can plan about stuff that's a little bit more, we'll get you somewhere complaining about this ridiculous stuff for the sake of complaining when you hear that and they're making like 150 K a year or whatever. And then, you know, my girlfriend, Hannah is a nurse in aged care home, she's doing stuff that they would never
be able to do. And getting paid, you know, wireless that is yes. Male. People's lack of perspective can give you perspective. Yeah, it's like, You're what you're saying is this guy is out of control and all this money in complaining about bullshit. Yeah. And then I'm over here, you know?
Yeah. So that's, I just don't complain about that much stuff. But
it also just doesn't. I wasn't planning on it.
Get up. Yeah.
Big day tomorrow, anyway.
Yeah, there is a baby. announcement I'm hoping I said that it was going to be 6am. There is something that I've six or eight, I said 6am and 8am. I've said both. But I'm waiting for something to basically be delivered into my inbox so that I can work it on. So it can all happen. But 6am I think, is when it's going to happen. So we're going to WhatsApp, we're going to Discord. Be at your phone. We need you to do something. And it is the start of something exciting. Yeah. Would you say anything else?
Now I'd leave it at that just in case we don't send it out at 6am.
That's happening. It's happening. The other thing? On the little things that annoy me were getting rid of the quotation marks when were quoted into DTS quotes. It gets on this I think people know that it's
important. Yeah. I like that because that's, um, that's part of your values. Small things matter. That thing and so do you that's Yeah, no. Yeah, I've changed my life completely.
Now Okay, so that that's exciting. I'm looking forward to that. Alright guys, I'm about to weigh myself out too much water right to daily talk show. We'll see you tomorrow and you get your phones ready, get ready for that announcement 6am tomorrow, Melbourne time, we need you and do you can look forward to it. Okay. Love you guys. Bye
