what's happening guys What is going on? Coming in a little tired this morning You and I both had about five hours sleep not the same bed wouldn't be a problem if we did
bodies and I was with the king that word at different houses Yeah. And we will simultaneously we're doing a bit of a What do we call it a screen
watch party watch it yeah yeah well i think i think it was just you and I watching at the point later in the night so David Blaine the the magician the frog Ada the card trigger he he did something pretty wacky he does have a pretty wacky It's so weird like I mean, it's there's not many people in the world that just like are see something when the young and then thinks, ah, I'll do that when I'm older. Like hold on to a bungee helium balloons and float away into the sky 25,000 feet up and then parachute down. That's what he did. And thanks to YouTube, we would get to watch the whole thing unfold. And I I know you're JJ you're it's well, I didn't think so. It started at 10:30pm last night and 55 yeah 10:55pm and I went to bed at 2am and I you stayed up just for that. I actually got through five hours of work as well as watching that it was so good like the work I had to do like I didn't get to do it literally you and I did the show yesterday. And then I couldn't I did some like fucking bookkeeping or like, admin ship in between I sent some emails. But then I got into full day of work from like 7pm till whenever wonders
But it's so annoying because I actually, I know I'm quite productive light at night, but it's not a good it's not a good thing. Anyway, I wouldn't normally do it but I couldn't like because it was live. I got I got so caught up in that I'm like, fuck it. You seem sort of dislike it unravelling. The guy goes from sort of cool, calm collected, talking with Marquez Brownlee. Yeah. And then next minute, he's fucking yelling at people.
Like the blobs. Like just a lot of
what what what did that guy say there was like, there's just like a lot of passive comments going back and forth. Where it's just
the thing is, he's about to risk his life like, you have blow ups and we're not. We're not risking our lives the way that he is. Literally. If anything goes wrong he's dead in front of his kid it was so bizarre like he's giving his daughter a key says he goes off and she's got a Fingers crossed
all the bedarra I'm sorry you misunderstood was one of the rigging guys was saying when I was sitting everything yeah
it's it's it's the feeling when you moving house to be honest it's like oh oh you didn't know Step Put the end up higher like he just ended up having to be so descriptive but you're in a you're in a bit of a you know freakout mode
actually that's funny parody a YouTube a really because then there's the filming as well like imagined yeah like doing the blow ups but then bring to it it's like YouTube's streaming the whole thing just like you trying to think yeah can help me with this fucking Hi YouTube
viewers. I wonder if he if he reflects on it and thinks fac has pretty pretty like, you know, demanding but I guess I reckon he's like not I have to be. This is my life if I don't get the right answer. What what is it what the one thing I took away was they said the brain the so they had like a they were patched through to him when he's 20,000 feet up in the air, they're talking to people on the ground, or he's and the guy talking said, the brains Trust has said, Go for it. I was like, I want to Brian's trust.
We can't just trust you need a second Well,
now, well, you're relying that's that's two brains away familiar. It's like three brains at play. No, but just being able to have that ultimate trust that you can say, who's your person? Like, who's your person that you would never question ever? About? Why if Yeah, I guess it's very easy. It's very
lucky. Bri bring something up in like, admin or something I'm believing like, yeah, it's all good. Okay. Yeah. But it's interesting because they so there's a hypoxi that happens where it's like, you go, it's hypoxia. That's what it's called. Yeah. Yeah. Is it? Yeah. What's hypoxi?
hypoxia is the is that training, the rip off weight loss training? hypoxi. What is it called hypoxia is a condition in which a body or region of the body is deprived of adequate oxygen supply to the tissue level?
Yeah. And so they were worried that as he went higher up, that he would get hypoxia. And so they, they had a team, it's this weird thing, where he's trying to reach these milestones. So it's like, he's got oxygen. He's got all of the things that you need, but he doesn't want to use them until he absolutely has to. And he was um, he had a bunch of mates That would just purely there to ask him quirky personal questions in case he has hypoxia, they can check.
Because you start getting it's like you're drunk and you become disorientated and like then he can't put his parachute on and, you know, if I can do the right thing to survive and so what
was your question in the whole thing?
Well, the favourite moment for me was when, because just to paint the scene, it's, he's, you know, strapped his arm to these big big set of balloons and he goes up and he doesn't have a parachute on. So the first bit like he's just hanging there, he does have a harness on strapped to it, but basically has no parachute. So if the balloons popped, or somehow he fell, he's dead. And so he got it gets to a certain height, where then he initiated stage two where it's bringing down the parachute with this slight little pulley system. And then he has to unbag it, dropped the bag off and put his arm into the parachute and then put the whole parachute on wall fucking 7000 feet in the air. Absolute lunatic that moment though, God, he had a lower heart rate than I did. My heart rate was fucking mean what's the oh hi how much
of this is theatre so like he didn't have to do that obviously he wanted the shot. The funny thing is he's like, man, I want to get a clean shot of me without the backpack on like so like so it's like let you know the proper sort of silhouette. But in reality he's got so many batteries and transmitters attached to him. He looks like he's fucking bloated like he's got thanks. It looks like he's wearing a fat suit or something. But yeah, no. Yeah,
that was my cyber bit putting the parachute just that it's it's, but this is why I think it's why he did it because it's there's so much at stake. The moment you You're holding the parachute in your arms, or you've put your arm through it. Like my asshole was clenched.
And but what about the theatre of the where he's going to land Like this? Like before he went up, and they're just showing on a screen. Do you think that that was so? The guy who's organising it always is named Luke. Remember the the, the guy who's done 20,000 jumps previously. Anyway, he, he's explaining to David, this is where you need to land. And I don't know if this is the shtick that David was doing just to sort of elevate the tension. Because like, Where is that? Like, well, no, which way like he didn't fucking it. He's like, ah, I don't have a good sense of direction. I'm thinking, surely. Surely like because he's getting confused of like, Uh huh. What is the green bit where I'm
like, What would you see in these high high pressure situations? communicating is tough. are just saying like, which way? Which way like, so look, he asked at one point. What Why is the wind going? And the guy didn't answer it. He just said, land towards the airport. Yeah. And then he's like
45 or something. But like, there's all these things. The Pro it's like when someone says our camera left stage, like, we haven't completely as a society nailed down how we're going to communicate the left's and rights in every scenario. Yeah,
yeah. Anyway is also a success. And we've got a couple of Thai babies on the shot.
And I'm sure it's almost got to talk about like, that's what I do I want to become a weatherman.
Well, there was weather experts that predicted exactly how it would go. I mean, they probably using fucking technology to work this shit out. But there was a lot of bragging going on. There was a lot of I'm a weather expert. Maybe I can fucking get my oxygen levels up. I've done 20,000 What's your brags? What do you break? About what do you brag about?
Oh, hi. I started listening to podcasts in 2005.
Yeah, I mean, usually,
rankings very sort of driven by the ego. Yeah. And I guess it's nothing wrong with it. It's like pumping up your unties bloke once said to me, or a bloke once said behind my back, Tommy's got tickets on himself, and I got fired up about it. Fucking someone's gonna, someone's gonna fucking buy the tickets. And they my ticket. I was so annoyed about it. But yeah, I mean, what else could you brag about?
I mean, it Yeah, there's like what what I would personally brag about Yeah,
what would you come up with a brag for me and I'll come up with a brag for you. Huh? What do you got?
So it's got to be tangible, right? Like it's gotta be it's gotta be something Are those heaps heaps?
I'm not the kind of guy that would brag. Okay, what do I think we do? I think what you just mentioned is what you brag about, even if you don't want to
Yeah, so what do you do? Well the joke we used to always make great dad, grandma and grandpa just suck and Walker I'ma grind you out red grind Dad I get that. I think so. But also it will you never actually said I'm a great dad. You just know you were determined to make that like a thing like just be being a great dad. Yeah.
And believe in achieve Yeah.
just like the semi skateboard like electric skateboard related? Oh, yeah, just really good. I actually you know what? The testosterone stuff you love to brag about that? Just like I got so much testosterone.
Oh, yeah, no doubt about it. Yeah, it was thrown off the fucking Richter
which explains itself. toxic masculinity. Yeah, hundred percent.
I imagine, like think about the things that we did like that. Nowadays, like even just going to get your bloods done something as dumb as that. Yeah. Like we were in a time where I like just with the new COVID normal, whatever that means. This like this shit that we've done even a year ago, even the status checking. Now I'm just like, trying to think I've tried to say the same
for me for me. It's always I've been to this place in this place.
Yeah you made 100 countries are a lot ventola No, I mean, but so we're going into Well, we were just talking before the show started about how there's been a leaked document of the plan coming out of stage four restrictions in Melbourne. For one, where's this doc? Is this on email? Because you can track who's fucking taken it and send it? Yeah, unless I've seen her on a person's computer and screenshot. Like, are we actually having documents leaked? Is this actually what's happening? Do you think?
Yeah, yeah, I mean, so. But it was very sort of an exciting because when you think about like, even for a guy who's pretty sort of pessimistic on this stuff, but just understands that it's going to be a long road, seeing the changes of being like, you can go from doing one hour of personal exercise to two hours over to one hour blocks. I was like, oh, wow, that's like, that really is still being very locked down.
100% I think that's why this like, well, you got either a leaked document if it was going to be all opened up, and it's a Good and we live fucking kicking goals doesn't have the same white as a leaked document where you know how we said six weeks it's actually going to be another two after the six basically
do you think would you Stan Andrews is doing a Kanye? In what way leaking his own stuff.
Oh yay true is true I mean facto there I was listening to build hype
for I was listening to sit on the
I was listening to the flagrant podcast,
what's it called flagrant with what does that mean? Well, Andrew
Schultz, Andrew Schultz. But just like when you just on that sort of people leaking their own stuff, like the stuff that's being leaked at the moment over in the states in the lead up to the election. It's ridiculous, and it's not even like a photo of Bill Clinton getting a massage by one of the Jeffrey One of the victims of Jeffrey Epstein. And this photo is 15 years old, and it's just coming out now. And it just so happens that it was leaked on on Monday when Bill was doing some speech. And then Michelle, Michelle Obama, there was a thing leaked of her saying about Jeffrey Epstein. Who's that fucking dirty, disgusting. Hollywood guy.
Weinstein, saying what's one stains great. He's one of my great friends or something. And like, and she was talking as well. And so the point is that people people do hold shit like you think, who would actually like their own stuff or who hold stuff like the game of the political game the states like people are holding on to photos for 15 years and then dropping them. And the good point around this stuff was the photos back 15 years ago, like when these photos were taken, you there was no iPhone getting a high quality Picture, there was photographers around. And so then there's the push of like, people were doing it to hold power. And so it was like they knew back then foc we need to get this on footage to light them later in life. And so I mean, that's taken away from Dan Andrews leaking a document. But no, I mean, there's low level for Dan, having something like that leaked. Like, it's a bit annoying. Yeah,
yeah, I guess it adds is obviously going to be stakeholders that are like, we need to know that people need to know now people need to be planning now there's always going to be that sort of pushback.
Well, they could be someone in the Liberal party that has connections to the Labour Party, and doesn't really have allegiance to the law. Also, you gotta consider to send this over to my
send this over to JJ you got to consider if there because of the federal government, I guess, being somewhat involved in all of these different things, or at least they're having some form of comms It would be going to, I would think the federal government, as just nice to know. And so you think that the opportunity for for leaking would be high. But you know, I'm an epidemiologist, not sort of a political scientist.
Yeah. You're, you're more about the, the real ins and outs
are all about
the infections. I mean, there was something this week about, as an epidemiologist, you'd appreciate this. bee venom rapidly killing cancerous cells, breast cancer cells, let's go and, and Reese Mitchell sent this to us.
He was originally and he was part like, I actually haven't been back to his last message, man. That's great. He's like, post about did
you put it on? No, he didn't say that.
But But he told a funny story of being in an Uber and he thought the guy was crazy and he's like, this guy had bees in his glove box and was saying how he had cancer and he was Steve himself with with a bass Stinger all to get rid of cancer. And so mentally had the guy that he didn't think I have cancer. He was talking about cancer and getting your
health. I don't know if it was specifically like Kansas, it was steamed in any spot.
Yeah, not to mention being the guy that no one believes you're sticking your spine with fucking babies, and you're going to drive Uber in LA. And just everyone thinks you're crazy. But you're actually on to it. I mean, that's the thing about like, in life, the getting the accolade doesn't necessarily come in your lifetime. Like imagine doing the thing in the lifetime you like fucking nobody gives a shit the dailies
what's going to happen who's going to be hosting it? Should we set up like k.org that can pay that can pay the the server fee or something
moving forward. We can let's make to venture IP. And on that if you if you if you need shared hosting, use the promo code ttt is a ttts. It was to try to get 50% off yet shared WordPress. shared hosting,
shared hosting. It might look after us, I look after us now multiple sites where they're running, but we do need that sort of. We want that 50 year plan. Yeah,
But you want to work out what do you do with say, all the domains you own? What do you do with them? What do you do with mine? Yeah, for the future, like how long do you hold on to shit?
Yeah. I just keep holding on to things until I'm like that really want this one? I don't need any more. But there is emails, email addresses. Yeah, like That's what there's probably a piece of work that we need to do when saying to our partners, hey, here's the key. I'm going to put this thing somewhere like this password somewhere. And so if everything is something happened, you can go to that because it was the story of the I spoke about it, the guy who had all the crypto keys or whatever. And it was like millions and millions of dollars 100 million dollars or something, wasn't it? He has lost in some sort of exchange and lost it all just on the COVID thing. The David Blaine thing, very interesting to watch an event that is very sort of team oriented close. During COVID.
They're in they were in Arizona. I mean, Li I'm saying photos from LA like people are at the beach, people at restaurants. It's it's much different. I mean, they There's no
shaking head like you sort of. You see these moments that pre 2020 that would shake hands. And so it was interesting. Just saying that a little bit of the little bit of sort of prep, trepidation, trepidation when it comes to those sort of like, Oh, hey, we've got quite lucky in this sort of just a little bit further away than normal. Oh, yeah. I mean, if you would do something in that team, if you were to, to be a specialist, which specialist do you think was the coolest?
For? I mean, the coolest is that guy who's done the 20,000 jumps? He's done some crazy shit.
Yeah, he was jacking orchestrating the whole thing, which is like, just use this a real top dog. I just like to have casualties be just fucking running around and making sure everyone's like, I just pick up on the little things where it's like, three j go or no go Like if I did it just like saying all these words to like check everyone's department and the fucking got the helicopter helicopter pilot would be sick.
Yeah, well he's a question the balloons, so he dropped from the big big pack of balloons. Where did they go? So cameras on them?
Yeah so they've got us do not squibs up now. So squibs are used so when I was doing VCA like film and TV they had an armourer do train
stop breaking, breaking Holly
and then but more sort of practical but the no so when Amara came and we used squibs and it's a when you're say doing a scene where there's a shootout or whatever. You need to create something that looks like they're being shot. So it's a little explosive, like it's a tiny little detonator thing. And but what they do from film and TV perspective is they put like, like a blood sort of what would you call it? Like a bag set? I bet Yeah, little satchel thing. And so then the when it detonates, then you know squirts blood everywhere. Anyway, so they were using the I heard them say squid like they're talking about squibs or whatever. Yeah, in the balloons. And so because they understood all of the weather stuff that they can control that they could control the whole balloon, like a system based on getting rid of white, for one thing. So they had all of this sans that they could let go if they needed to make it go higher. But they also had the squibs to be able to pop that some of the big balloons
were and so then popping it would mean it's going to come down inside. I just popped them in then got it hovering down. I
haven't actually Sent like so we went to bed at two. I haven't seen what's happened since. Yeah,
well, I safe to say that like a million penguins have died from that place. Max. Actually pink penguins are now extinct. Thanks to
be his magic trick he's ever done. Hey, try this one.
Yeah, it is. It is interesting. I mean, it's a it's like I brace it arts. It's like our moon landing. Not quiet. But
imagine if you didn't stay up for the moon landing and you stayed up for David blinds magic trick. If the moonlight eldo fucking I'll stay up for 10 hour session.
I would love more of this shit. I think that we need this 2020 it is your crazy live streams like this
is fucking great. I feel for all the tech people panicking about the audio issues. Just so the audience like
man when they saw just before they took off I reckon this is my theory. Yeah, they hadn't done a run through with every single transmitter receiver all long team and the microphones and so hearing the interference sound and then you can hear it and you're like fine embrace like, are they gonna fix that? She's not fucking wasn't wasn't happy about the sound Thank you briefly coffee wasn't happy about the sound and then you see this is panic because you're like fuck they're gonna have to do something but I'm just imagining this sound Oh, trying to fucking run down to try and get them the mic sorted and headed it's just that thing because it's like right at this like the pivotal moment where it's like we've got to go we've got to go. Yeah and they're like fucking oh now we just To try and get the mic thing and then just fucking let it go.
I did have I wonder I wonder how much they spent YouTube's spent on that. How do you reckon?
My guess was 5 million?
billion? Yeah if 5 million maybe even more.
Yes on YouTube David blind
it is it's phenomenal that companies like I mean they've got enough money but they're spending money on doing shit like this new space love it.
So he was meant to do it across the Hudson River.
That would have been so cool seeing it seeing new york city or was it upstate with me? couldn't have gotten New York City down fifth have a parachute like in Batman. Anyway, how do you feeling after only five hours sleep? I know this is probably normal for a bunch of drugs but yeah, for baby like JJ.
This is fake why they Ronnie Matt David plain they should be running and be bragging about this all day.
Imagine all that you even appeared today.
What I did message you I said, obviously like a 30 might not happen. No, but I feel it's going to annoy some people me saying this I feel a bit jet lagged
your lips. Your lips chapped.
Yeah, but that's all the orange juice I'm having.
Now my new chapter just every late night. Anyway. Have a great Thursday. gronk one trick Tony has just dropped. Yeah, actually. Yeah, I
