Tommy Jackett: [00:00:00] Very low barrier to get into the ground squat.
Josh Janssen: [00:00:07] We've committed to do the daily talk show for 10 years. I had guys
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:10] put it in the calendar. I just like
Josh Janssen: [00:00:13] check the temperature in the room. I told you my squeegee
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:15] story.
Josh Janssen: [00:00:19] It's a daily talk show episode 938.
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:23] What is happening? What's going on Gronk.
Josh Janssen: [00:00:26] Even to be back. It is Sunday, the final a weekend show that we'll be doing for a while, at least. Yeah.
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:31] But we'll be back tomorrow. And then the following day, right through to Friday and then a break for the weekend. That is our new scheduling five days a week, the daily talk show.
Yep. You can
Josh Janssen: [00:00:42] watch us on YouTube or you can listen to us on your favorite podcast. Yeah, yeah,
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:46] yeah, yeah. You know, I mean, usually we do this at the end, but we've forgotten what we do is fine. Having a little break. Um, I mean, I've been doing something that you've been doing. Yeah. Yeah. I've been buying stuff online.
Cray, what have you bought a, bought a book, put a book this morning and I bought it from said here. We've got some lovely presence from Georgie boy. Yeah. They were really nice books from his mother's bookstore cares. Get a, um, last time I bought a book, which was just before the holidays and I didn't finish it.
I read some of it, but then my plans for my holidays went upside down. So, you know, No grading, you know, it is, it's very hard. Like
Josh Janssen: [00:01:29] he had
Tommy Jackett: [00:01:29] it all mapped out, not rating. Anyway, that book from Booktopia who we've had the CEO of that show on our show, CEO of that business on our show. And then I, I literally bought it.
And then a second later I was like, Oh, which book? This was, um, rammed us, uh, be here now. And I had a panic attack as after I'd paid for it thinking, Oh my God, I could have just put that through our sponsor. Who's someone who's sponsored another show of
Josh Janssen: [00:01:58] Yeah. Uh, which, uh, yeah. Can I just say then now the naming right.
Oh on sorry, screenplay Sunday. Yeah. Yeah.
Tommy Jackett: [00:02:06] Well, it comes back for another season is something else, but, uh, so I've come good. I've bought a book and it is from the book room in Byron Bay and, um, it's called lying and it's a, a book by my boy, Sam Harris. I didn't even know he wrote it. I had written this, I was listening to a podcast last night and I heard him mentioned, um, they were talking about lying and then all of a sudden he's like, yeah, I wrote a book about it.
You knew about it. Yeah, you've got it. I didn't want the audio book. I want the hard copy. It just, I just quickly lying as a long form essay book by a neuroscientist expert, Sam Harris, uh, argues that we can radically simplify our lives and improve society by merely telling the truth. In situations where others often lie, which it will all make sense why I'm bringing up this and why I even bought the book a little later.
When I tell you, I still worry.
Josh Janssen: [00:02:58] I feel like you have no problem in telling the truth. Now I don't, I don't. I feel like you tell the truth too much, potentially. Really? Yeah. You probably should just STFU. Or do
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:09] you want me to tell you this story now? What can I say? Yeah. Uh, we obviously plans canceled going to Sydney planning to be there for two weeks, had to turn around and stay back in Melbourne, which was nice.
We, you know, little impromptu to get away to a, um, uh, an old crusty motel that we would always go to as kids, but it's actually. It's amazing. How, when I say crusty, it's like a good piece of crap you
Josh Janssen: [00:03:36] were saying it's also very clean, clean,
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:39] like a good piece of crusty clean touch. You know, it still has the same smells as it once did.
Um, still like same sort of decor. I loved it. It's just. Childhood memories just come up and it's fucking awesome. Anyway, got to do that. Did you park
Josh Janssen: [00:03:56] your car right out the front,
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:58] like motel so convenient. It's so convenient. A few were in a road rage accident, and then you follow the car and then you wanted to know where they were.
Yeah. You'd know exactly what room. Yeah, it's very true in carpark 17 for room 17. So did
Josh Janssen: [00:04:12] you, did it have a spot to be able to go beforehand? So you sort of go into the reception area. You wait there and then get your car and fucking.
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:20] Yeah, classic corner motel, where you've got the entrance in the reception and arts.
It's so good. It's such great memories at the place. Flinders is where it is. It's worth staying there. You'll pay 400 bucks at the pub across the road, or you'll pay 130 to 150 bucks a night. At the motel and it's sick, but you
Josh Janssen: [00:04:42] also stayed at a motel near the border.
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:44] Didn't you stayed in one of those same, same vibe.
Exactly. The same
Josh Janssen: [00:04:47] vibe and Bodie became friends with.
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:50] Yeah. The Victoria police were up there doing the, um, border crossing, keeping, um, the new South Wales infected people out of Victoria, but that was, yeah, so that was good. So. A lot of shit happened. Like you have something planned, obviously doesn't happen.
Something else has to happen. Yeah. And we went to, um, did you ever go to Healesville sanctuary as a kid? So it's like, it's the best way it's like Australians are. Yeah. But it's nice. So when you think zoo, you think monkeys
Josh Janssen: [00:05:19] in Australian it's Nigeria? Yeah,
Tommy Jackett: [00:05:21] exactly. Australians. So don't think you're going there to see an elephant.
All right. They've they've got like kangaroos, Tasmanian devil, coolest thing you could say. Um, they've got a budget. No, the staff did. They
Josh Janssen: [00:05:33] all have, like, they have like syphilis or something. Yeah. Some sort
Tommy Jackett: [00:05:36] of, no, it's true. That is true. The core, I think walls have syphilis. Chlamydia is what koalas had.
Okay. I'm pretty sure root reds and they're not rats. They're Qualys root bears. Um, so you went there, bone bears. So we went, so we, um, got up early, drove an hour from my place to Healesville sanctuary. It's like, get in early. It'd be nice. It's going to be a hot day, you know, getting, so we did that rocked up.
And there wasn't many people in the car park and then we go around and, um, this lady says to us, Oh, good, Hey, welcome. You know, real sort of like classic vibe of a person working at the front of a zoo. Lovely. So lovely. Um, maybe in writing to the Irwin's, you know, like that kind of Aussie vibe. Um, great.
Yeah. Yeah. Um, have you got a ticket? No, no, we don't say, Oh, um, you didn't book one? No, she said it's sold out. And I instantly said to her, Oh, I spoke to the fi I spoke to someone on the phone yesterday and um, they said, ah, it be fine. If you just rock up. She said, Oh, did you, um, who do you, w what number did you call through?
And I said, Oh, the one on the site. Well, that's good. Yeah. And she said, okay, hang on. She goes inside and then says, Oh, there might be a spare ticket. It might be a few, you know, Cancellations. And so she goes in, Amy says, Oh, that's good that you called. I said, I didn't call.
Josh Janssen: [00:07:06] I said,
Tommy Jackett: [00:07:08] I felt like, where did that come from?
Like I said, it so quickly, so quickly. I called yesterday. Oh my God.
Josh Janssen: [00:07:14] And then you could have gone to Sydney. You could have just lied at the border crossing the line
Tommy Jackett: [00:07:20] 10 minutes later comes out. Yeah, no worries. There's a few Spears. So come through. Yeah. And they
Josh Janssen: [00:07:25] said something about VIP passes. My uncle loans at fuck.
I've gone too far. And so,
Tommy Jackett: [00:07:31] I mean, it was a Gronk move, lying. And in the moment I was like, I got it. It was such an old may. Right. It's like, you know, you at the club, people who drink and then they fuck with old self comes out or something like that. Yeah, it was, yeah. It was like the club. Yeah. I fucking conditioned myself just to talk shit, to get in some way.
And then I was thinking about it. You say, you can say anyone who lies justifies it. Whether you think that's a white lie or just a, you know, we'd driven an hour, like you say, the fuckery of going home. I didn't want to have to go home anyway, there was spare tickets. We didn't go into a place that like, so you don't feel like
Josh Janssen: [00:08:11] you'd cut the line.
Tommy Jackett: [00:08:13] There was no cutting. There was no person behind us who had put in the effort that missed out. It was like someone had decided not to go. And we went in and to be fair, we went in for two hours and. So, like I said, we got there and it was quiet. We walked out and there was a fucking line for a kilometer.
It was hundreds. The lady said to us, 4,000 people are coming today. 4,000 people. There was 20 people when I was there, like we were walking through Pat parts of Healesville sanctuary. That was, we thought we were on a bushwalk by ourselves. Like there was no one there at this time. What time did you get that?
We got there at like eight 45. I think it opened at nine. And yeah, there was a couple of other families with prams that, you know, had the same idea, but it's just, you see how it's just like, wait that extra hour and you're fucked, but anyway, I heard Sam Harris talking about lying and he's, I don't, I don't lie about things you said.
I mean, it's interesting to see. Why do you think I speak? Why do you think? I say I'm almost too honest. What is it? Is it that I don't realize if anything, I'd put it as this. I don't realize the impact of what I'd say. So it's not like I'm actually thinking. I'm going to be honest, right? When someone
Josh Janssen: [00:09:31] has a mole on their face, you'll say, you've got something on your face.
Tommy Jackett: [00:09:35] your, what about that woman in the shoe that I said, you've got to, she said, no, a stain. Well, it looks I've, you know, I've got to beat this. I said, you know, I've got to be across these things.
Josh Janssen: [00:09:48] And so I think it was, I mean, it works too. Like it's the same quality that allowed you to get into. The lounge, uh, when we were traveling, because we only had enough, uh, access for me to bring one extra guest. And so I had Mr. 97 and you just ended up walking in with a guy who worked at Microsoft or something.
Oh yeah. This
Tommy Jackett: [00:10:15] guy was walking in. You were speaking at the counter and then I hung back cause I was like, Oh, I wonder how this is going to happen. Then this guy walks up and I said, Hey mate. He said, yeah. Hey. Yeah. Okay, good. You got to you here. Somebody now you mind, if I be your guest, come to the lounge, my mates he's like, yeah, no worries.
And then we just stood there together. Like, I guess
Josh Janssen: [00:10:35] it works. It works out for the people around you, Amy and Bodie. It was, it was lucky. Did you go to the, um, the Eagle
Tommy Jackett: [00:10:42] presentation that was at 12, so nine, 10. Maybe we left at 1130 and that was at 1230 was tell you what the best thing was. Um, for me, it's not, for me.
This is for birdie was, uh, there's a huge like robber dinosaurs walk and they are they're roaring and they're fucking ginormous and they're mechanical. And you don't meant to touch them. I just want to, you know, you just want to grab them to
Josh Janssen: [00:11:10] still feel like a sanctuary at that
Tommy Jackett: [00:11:12] point. Well, it is kind of like a bit serious theme park, aren't you?
Yeah, but they work really well. There's lots of info about them. Anyway. My favorite was. Tasmanian devils. Very cute. Very Australian. So I had to go and see them. Um, kangaroos, I, we skipped cause you see them, you know, I've got one in my backyard, not done. Um, uh, what else? A red belly, black snake, the reptiles, like I'm fucking all about things that could kill you, but not being able to Platypus.
Was that? Yeah. Oh, that's cool. Classic. A lot of water for the planet posts. I mean it's water closure or enclosure. Swimming. That was sweet. That was sweet. But I was thinking, so what if you weren't to lie? Like if w at what point I feel like this is a stitch up.
Josh Janssen: [00:12:04] Well, cause you said before, I heard you say RGB, can you get that tweet?
I don't guess what it is. I'm trying to connect dots.
Tommy Jackett: [00:12:13] You're the kid, that's your, mom's trying to throw you a surprise party and you know, she's doing that, but you just bully her into telling you yeah. Oh, well it fucking party and all your friends are coming in. You can, I just need you to tell me. Yeah, that was for something that was for something completely different.
Okay. Is that still happening in mine? Okay. If you play your cards, right. Do we sit at the same time? Is that normal? A normal, we just did that.
Josh Janssen: [00:12:40] Um, getting into ice. As in water, when I say water, ice just DCL out before we should get an ice machine. Yeah. It would be great. Could you imagine, cause it'd be filtered water because sometimes there's a,
Tommy Jackett: [00:12:53] would it be filtered water
Josh Janssen: [00:12:54] if it's an ice machine, it would be you'd think.
Yeah. Why, if you going into all that effort, don't you think? Well, at that point, just have a fridge otherwise, so it will just be a free, like it would have the water built in. So like a tap, like it would have plumbing, you, but I'm trying to work out to have plumbing. It would be, it would have a filter in the plumbing
Tommy Jackett: [00:13:15] benefits.
Is it normal tap? So the toilet tapping our office. Does that have a filter? Does the tap in the, um, kitchen have a filter?
Josh Janssen: [00:13:25] No, but if you got a drinking tap that would have a filter,
Tommy Jackett: [00:13:30] pretty affluent to have filtered, watered ice. Filtered water. I
Josh Janssen: [00:13:36] think that all, that's what I'm saying. I think all ice machines out of the box would be filtered because they're probably spending what, $1,500 on the ice machine.
Tommy Jackett: [00:13:45] Yeah, probably more like, think about the, um, the one minute dishwashers for the same vibe. Like you see an ice machine at a bar and it looks like the same as the dishwasher, like industrial. Like that's where I dunno, good point. Well, I literally, the
Josh Janssen: [00:14:00] reason why, because I literally watched a repair how to repair your ice machine over the break.
Cause I was watching like how to make Persian kebab. And then the guy also has all these other how-tos.
Tommy Jackett: [00:14:13] I bought a, I, my mum bought, do you remember the slushie machines? And you'd freeze this big thing of ice and put it in press a thick, you hold down it and spit out us. I mean, these are silly purchases.
Yeah. I mean, that's your vibe.
Josh Janssen: [00:14:26] So what have you bought the book? Oh, that's right. Yeah. You're the book guy. Yeah,
Tommy Jackett: [00:14:31] but that's this year, actually, other than. You doing a book hold by 2020, which I feel like you're over, moved on and I I've actually dealt with your book home and
Josh Janssen: [00:14:44] you did a very good job. Yeah, no.
So I, um, I went through a stage. This is before watching the new minimalism doco. By day of ELA and also, uh, I didn't, I wasn't really thinking about moving. So now that we're moving and all that sort of stuff, you realize the stuff that you have. And so, um, before this all came about, probably would have been like the 19th of December.
Tommy Jackett: [00:15:12] Uh, I was asleep between the Saturday
Josh Janssen: [00:15:15] after you're finished, start to finish, I was like, fucking, what am I going to do? So I was like, I'm going to. I, I started with, um, going to the Salvos and buying secondhand books there. Yeah. And I was like, you know, the problem with this is like not very scalable. I'm going to have to go to every single one.
And so then I start going on a buy finding bulk books. I actually found a, um, it was essentially a bookshop closing down in new South Wales. It was selling all of their books for about. Could get these, um, it was like four and a half grand, but you had to get there and all that sort of
Tommy Jackett: [00:15:49] thing. You didn't buy that.
I didn't buy that
Josh Janssen: [00:15:56] donors. And it's also silly. I don't know that many books, but anyway, I, um, I did find, uh, some secondhand books. There was like 300 and something on eBay for 50 bucks. And so I bought them at
Tommy Jackett: [00:16:09] $50. Bargain. Yes, there was
Josh Janssen: [00:16:13] hundreds, Andre over 300. And so the I'm going through them. That's what I did. Like I spread them out in the office.
When you came, that was. Me having cleaned it up. Cause it was everywhere. It was everywhere. And
Tommy Jackett: [00:16:28] I brought a son in here, Bodie and he walks in and he says, Oh, who made all this mess?
Josh Janssen: [00:16:38] Right. I was like
Tommy Jackett: [00:16:39] a junkie is broken in here and brought everything back home. This is wild. I mean, it obviously wasn't in operations.
That was fine. But yeah. How did you bring them all up? What was it like? Because the thing is I've ended up, I've ended up putting them back into the box and taking them to the garage, which is probably one of the most annoying things to think downstairs boxes, heavy upstairs. You're excited. You've got them nothing exciting.
I did a good workout without any resentment. I didn't mind it. He was actually looking at a couple of them
Josh Janssen: [00:17:10] because the thing is I went and got probably 50 that were great, that I really liked. And then I put all the others in a box in boxes that I was like, this is stuff that I could donate. Yeah. But, um, it's funny.
You're going through it's, it's sort of a bit of a treasure hunt, like a part of me and you, your mind go races. You know, it goes everywhere when you got that many books. Like I
Tommy Jackett: [00:17:35] was like, I mean peanut water. They use this when they like, I've got 50 K in front of my mind. Right. Is what I could spend this money.
Josh Janssen: [00:17:43] thinking it just takes one person to have used a hundred dollar note as a bookmark. Yeah. Three every
Tommy Jackett: [00:17:49] book. Did you? Yeah. God, you like the kid? No cash. You like the kid? When I say the kid, I mean, may that usage to get his envelopes and. Hang the, you know, just a birthday card, just like shake out the cash.
Josh Janssen: [00:18:02] anyway, but no, so I'm, I'm over that I'm I'm back in, which is why I've become the book guy. Have
Tommy Jackett: [00:18:09] you bought a book this year? No,
Josh Janssen: [00:18:13] I bought so many last year. Is there any way, but what I have become is the everyday carry guy.
Tommy Jackett: [00:18:19] So every day care if you made out of it before. Yes. I've. I mean, It's a YouTube thing as in
Josh Janssen: [00:18:27] an Instagram thing, it's a,
Tommy Jackett: [00:18:29] Whoa, you could see it as like, it's usually like wallet.
Let's look through the wallet. It's a part of my everyday carry. And so you've taken it a step further and maybe it's just, I don't know, everyday carry to be on be beyond like you can't like something to hold your car keys, your phone, cover your work, all its cards.
Josh Janssen: [00:18:50] Well, the reason I came up was because.
Uh, I was watching a, um, I called the cops, you know, fuck call the cops a couple of times they're working over the holidays, but there was a domestic dispute happening and, uh, there'll probably a hundred meters away. We're on, you know, we're on level five looking down. And, uh, I thought if I had a torch. I could hit them with the tortures in like, like with the light, like just spray the light on them.
Tommy Jackett: [00:19:19] shine, no visual of hitting something like police officer with a long. Yeah. So
Josh Janssen: [00:19:25] like, so light, light it up and yeah, but I didn't have a torch. Yeah. And so when you're all fired up, you spend a bit of time on YouTube looking at torches. And I was like brightest torch, smallest, brightest torch. And so.
I got one. So it was at that price point where I didn't buy a breeze. I just, just don't buy it tonight. Just give, like, give yourself some time. And then we went to, yeah, exactly. And then we went to a friend's house on the weekend, like the weekend after. And, um, uh, I drive like a quad bike and stuff like that.
And I was like, I need this.
Tommy Jackett: [00:20:08] Yeah. And so, um, I mean, you went to a place that. Is most likely to have a torch in the house. Yes.
Josh Janssen: [00:20:15] And so, anyway, this is, this is the torch, uh, that I got. Uh, well, it
Tommy Jackett: [00:20:20] is quite small. Can you just tell me, I mean, tell me about it and then I want to know the price of it.
Josh Janssen: [00:20:25] Uh, so it's the, uh, the Phoenix lie, uh, the Phoenix light, which is a good, good, good brand.
It's called the owl R 35 R.
Tommy Jackett: [00:20:36] Um, 35 35. There it is.
Josh Janssen: [00:20:38] And so, um, the reason why I liked it and still love it is the brightness. So this is to give you an idea. When I went to the country and, uh, was hanging out with a guy, a, uh, he had a torch that torch was 1100 lumens, right? That was a bright torch.
Tommy Jackett: [00:21:03] Well, and to give you comparison also headlights are about 1500.
Josh Janssen: [00:21:08] Yeah. Oh, that's a good fact. Well, so anyway, this torch is 10,000 lumens.
Tommy Jackett: [00:21:13] So you got 10 cars. I mean, it doesn't even work like that because you think. 10 10 it's 10 times the strength. So if you think headlights are bright, think again. And so this second
Josh Janssen: [00:21:26] point, and so some of the great things, it's a waterproof up to two meters dust proof.
Uh, it can drop it a meter, all this sort of stuff. The, uh, comes with a pouch so I can wear it on me at all times. Plus. Uh, this is a feature. I like it is USB charged by a USB-C really nice. Right.
Tommy Jackett: [00:21:46] Which is the only way you can charge it. I mean, it sound that
Josh Janssen: [00:21:50] you could use the rechargeable battery so you could get a unit if you
Tommy Jackett: [00:21:53] want it to.
Okay. So then you'd have multiple batteries drop it. Yeah. Okay. No, that's fine.
Josh Janssen: [00:21:58] And so this thing telling you about it, it can start a fire if you want it to, you can put it on some leaves and it'll burn up. We did it on one of the old books.
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:06] Smokes out the smokes. We don't know if it actually likes
Josh Janssen: [00:22:09] it five long enough.
Um, so anyway, uh, this is the torch. Can I turn it on,
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:17] on me? Yeah. So I'm going to click like, so we're sitting if you're watching us now, we're side by side on the YouTubes, if, um, but I'm across from Josh. So we're looking at each other. Uh, shine it onto me. Oh, sorry. I won't do it. I'll do it. My eyes. I'll close my eyes and hold the top.
So just look at the look of the bright, Oh, I got, I could see my bloody, my hands, you know how you could see blood in your hand. Okay.
Josh Janssen: [00:22:44] And then, uh, I'll do kind of do strobe, just do it quickly. Okay. I'm we're gonna just sharp.
Tommy Jackett: [00:22:49] I can stop it. I can feel the, um, when you do it, I can legit feel the heat. On my face, like light behind me, like while, so don't look at her.
It's so bright, dude. It is. I mean, the thing is I had torches growing up as a kid that were little Globes, not LEDs. And then there was the one that was like the dolphin torch and it was the big, like,
Josh Janssen: [00:23:18] there was a Maglite sort of ones, but this. LA tech has come a long way. So it was three, $300, 300. So now I go for like two 70 or something.
So the thing is that this is something you have forever.
Tommy Jackett: [00:23:32] Well, until it breaks what's aid, it's an aid until
Josh Janssen: [00:23:38] lumen lost.
Tommy Jackett: [00:23:39] What's that mean?
Josh Janssen: [00:23:41] You lusting after more lumens. So you want to fall powerful. So you go to, well, the thing is that this one, if you go any higher in the lumens, they have fans built into them.
And so they get quite noisy. Like like there's a hundred thousand layman one, which is crazy. That's like the brightest torch anyway. So I've gotten into everyday carry
Tommy Jackett: [00:24:01] EDC and they said, this is a party at eight.
Josh Janssen: [00:24:03] So I've got the show,
Tommy Jackett: [00:24:05] maybe two other things, $300. Torch. Yeah. Thing. We're putting the costing up
Josh Janssen: [00:24:12] 300 back torch.
I'm not drinking anymore. Like I'm not, well, just like very, very little, but just not buying sort of, you know, wine every week or whatever. So anyway, this is the, um, the, uh, it's an Axiom. The model is an Axiom 24, 1324 liters. I think that the brand is. Tag tag?
Tommy Jackett: [00:24:40] Um, not as in the watch, no company. No, it's um, what's the, how can you have another brand?
That's exactly the same as something else now it's like, I mean, does it have a forgot? I've forgotten? What I do like about visually is that it doesn't have branding on it. Yeah. Like you can't see it's black. It's tactical tactical.
Josh Janssen: [00:24:59] No. And so my favorite feature
Tommy Jackett: [00:25:01] is who's you can look up tactical meaning just because you looked up though, you've used the word tactical more times
Josh Janssen: [00:25:09] this week, which is tactical.
Yeah. So I got the bag and so part of my ADC and then the other EDC thing that I'll show today. Is the Knight I's gear, tie, reusable, rubber twist ties. And, um, these are the, the three inch ones. Uh, and, uh, what they're great for is that they're sort of rubberized. I think they've got a pattern potentially that they, um, they have a way of, uh, sticking of the wire internally.
That's in there with the rubber sort of like a patented technology. And so what this is, is it's just like a sort of a standard, um, how would you describe it? It looks like the size of a toothpick, maybe a little bit bigger, uh, black. And so you can bend it. And so by you can basically twist it around a cable or things like that.
So, yeah, I'm trying to get the, you know, I'm still a minimalist. And I'm just trying to have a few high quality, a D CS. Yeah. Everyday carry items.
Tommy Jackett: [00:26:13] What happens when you just want to fucking leave the house with a t-shirt and shorts on? Not much like you could you so easy, do you, I mean, I don't own a backpack and that's not a good thing or a bad thing.
I just reality. It's just a thing that I have never bought a backpack.
Josh Janssen: [00:26:30] Could you imagine, like it.
Tommy Jackett: [00:26:32] Because the thing is office. We pay a lease
Josh Janssen: [00:26:38] every day off road, but it's, it's nice having things ever like ado. When you came around, uh, last night I was on my exercise bike. You got the torch and was how you are enjoying the torch.
Tommy Jackett: [00:26:51] If anything, it's a part of the adventure club that is no longer. So don't say that. No, it's just, it hasn't started. Yeah. Um, I mean, you're more getting like this shit is more of the stuff that I like. Like I was the kid out in the back shining torches on shit and the kid at the front, with the flash, from the, my mom's camera.
And I'd be flashing cars as they go past, pretending that they got to like, you know, fine. What about seeing like my mate ordered he crafty motherfucker ordered. Parts separately because you can't buy them all together because people know what you're up to. He bought the parts to build out a laser pointer drive and this laser pointer would burn through shit.
It was shown at the moon. It legit looks like it goes to the moon. Like it just, how you just don't see it end. It just keeps fucking going. What about the,
Josh Janssen: [00:27:52] um, what about Ben Knox binoculars?
Tommy Jackett: [00:27:55] Yeah. Yeah, they're good. I mean,
Josh Janssen: [00:27:56] thinking about like, I started watching YouTube, like birdwatching,
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:01] as soon as I for what might not be like, what is it?
32 year old heaven. Just I'm thirdly, asking you about myself. A tactical pair of binoculars for
Josh Janssen: [00:28:12] it just, it is good. Like imagine. Just like looking far. I really, the thing is all of this. Or like even the torch, like watching someone review the torch, I haven't heard anyone give a good answer. The best answer I heard was using the torch to look through your bag.
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:31] So you went to a property that was a way that is way you have a torch on a farm. Mum and dad lived on five acres, but surrounded by rolling Hills and like. You couldn't say shit. Yeah. They needed a torch. Like you're living in a new place. It makes sense to have a torch in the place. You're in an apartment.
Sure. You've got your phone. Most people don't
Josh Janssen: [00:28:53] as possums where I'm, where I'm living. Sorry. That's
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:56] going to be sick. No, no, no. That's how you kill them. My brother has a head unit. I think it's 3000 lumens. Like you need to start hanging around electricians. Cause they're my brothers into the lumen chair.
Give him a call. I love
Josh Janssen: [00:29:12] lumens. It is great. And the thing is, I'm not going to go buy another one. This is with me for a very long time. Uh, and yeah, I'm just going to break. And the other thing too is it's like, um, do you know how expensive guns are?
Tommy Jackett: [00:29:28] You got one you can, I mean, you can pay a thousand dollars for a gun.
Yeah. It's like, I don't even know how is
Josh Janssen: [00:29:33] it's like a torch, like.
Tommy Jackett: [00:29:37] No. I mean, I've drank more alcohol in a night, then the cost of you. I get it. I mean, I'm all for
Josh Janssen: [00:29:45] it. Are you going to tell me the Twitter thing or no, because it doesn't
Tommy Jackett: [00:29:49] make sense. It doesn't make sense. And I thought it would. I thought it would.
Well, you say, okay, I'll tell you, you, you, before you said you were getting zip ties, ah, I can
Josh Janssen: [00:29:58] assure, and zip ties are a different thing, not this type
Tommy Jackett: [00:30:02] thing, or just leave you with this, um, tweets that Georgia boy and I were laughing about this morning bench and Ben Shapiro, a conservative, um, Has a Carnegie podcast, the Ben Shapiro show, uh, if you're looking for an interesting take on a conservative take on all things, politics, um, and pop culture, it seems, but, um, when those absolute fuckwits storm, the Capitol, there was a photo of a guy who was very tactical tactical, a person whose tactical being that was there as a writer is not what you want at the capital light.
He had out the back.
Josh Janssen: [00:30:41] He has like a military sort of thing.
Tommy Jackett: [00:30:42] So they're like pre ready, zip tie, cable ties that you can put around people and handcuff them behind. It's like what the SWAT use. Right. And someone re tweeted out saying to regular humans actually by zip ties. Have you ever bought zip ties? If so, what did you use it for?
And. Like I I've bought zip
Josh Janssen: [00:31:05] ties. Zip ties are great for, uh, traveling a hundred percent because you can yeah. Your lucky bag. And they just have some
Tommy Jackett: [00:31:13] choices, cable management sometimes, but you can't undo it. Like you got to cut it. It's been annoying. Anyway, Ben's written back. Literally every human I know owns zip ties.
Okay. Okay. Good fight on Twitter then. Mike, this is what you get on Twitter. Mike Drucker. I mean, Mike Drucker has a blue tick. He said, Ben, usually. I joke, but I'm going to come at this, honestly, there's a big difference between zip ties being carried by pallet paramilitary forces, invading the Capitol and zip ties carried by your wife.
So she can tie you to a chair and make you watch her have sex with that's fucking
Josh Janssen: [00:31:54] Savage. That's Twitter for you. Isn't that fucking Twitter. I mean, are you on Twitter much? How often are you checking?
Tommy Jackett: [00:32:01] Well, I went off so. I've I was off Instagram. I didn't open. I opened the app as it was like a tick. I did it fucking unconsciously, but as soon as I pressed it, I was like closed it.
Didn't look on Twitter. Oh, sorry. It didn't look on Instagram from January one through to the ninth of Jan. Wait until you
Josh Janssen: [00:32:24] realize that you can bring it in, in a little bit, like I'm at that point where it's like, yeah, I can open it up, look at it for 30 seconds, you know, every
Tommy Jackett: [00:32:33] half hour. But I also removed the other crutch, which was, I thought that was really good for you.
The other crutch was firstname.lastname@example.org. Did I? You just for fucking
Josh Janssen: [00:32:45] garbage headline, getting pissed email@example.com because
Tommy Jackett: [00:32:50] it's, I keep saying like, um,
Josh Janssen: [00:32:52] they'll have a, a headline and it's gone well beyond. Like, um, clickbait. So it's it's clickbait, but then you click through and the head headline changes in the article and then you have to scroll down and it's like, I dunno, like now what I do is if I F it's like our, um, uh, what's um, Ivanka Trump what's um, Trump's, what's the daughter's name?
Tommy Jackett: [00:33:21] it? Yeah.
Josh Janssen: [00:33:23] Melanie is that wife and then who's he's ex I thought that might've been fun. Ivanka, Ivanka Trump, uh, in trouble for how they treated their secret service. Did you hear about the toilets? They had to spend three grand a month renting a studio,
Tommy Jackett: [00:33:39] put it this way. If you had tried easy doing some work in house, would you want them shitting in the toilet or there's half a
Josh Janssen: [00:33:45] There's a half a dozen, and these traders are in fucking suits. Yeah. Like they're all dressed to the nines. It's fine. If someone's protecting your life, let them take down your toilet. And so anyway, I clicked on the article. Couldn't say it within five seconds. Just fucking Googled it and went to another website.
Tommy Jackett: [00:34:01] Sorry. Yeah, little bastards. And so the thing is I removed that crutch to wasn't allowed to open news.com dot a U. And so I'd been off social media. I did open the reason I'm saying that is because I was thinking about social media stuff. I didn't even do LinkedIn. I was looking at a little bit of Twitter every now and then just with the thing about Twitter, if there's something that's happened in the world, you can see just quickly, like other it's like, you know, it's like, uh, brings together all the bullshit.
Josh Janssen: [00:34:28] before, uh, Trump got kicked off Twitter. Yeah, I did have, um, so I didn't follow him for the longest time because I thought that maybe. Following canceled? No, no, no. Well, yeah, it's a bit of a political statement. Like you're following him, you're supporting,
Tommy Jackett: [00:34:44] but they're not, Oh, sorry. Comical. Like you can follow Trump for coming
Josh Janssen: [00:34:47] full value.
So anyway, I did, um, I also downloaded
Tommy Jackett: [00:34:51] parlor. Use that for, for like before they took it off for like two minutes.
Josh Janssen: [00:34:56] Literally couldn't work it. I signed up, couldn't get my username pissed off about that. So I want to already had Josh Janssen and then like closed it. But anyway, the, uh, I did start following Trump because when you follow, you can then turn on notifications when someone tweets.
So I just turned on notifications. So anytime he was saying something crazy, like if he's going to let off a note, it's good to know, like go inside and he would,
Tommy Jackett: [00:35:24] it would fucking toy. Isn't that crazy? What a crazy stat to 2021. That's crazy. That's crazy. That's crazy. So what, what was it a tweet? It was like a meme.
Um, 2020 was crazy. And then it has like 2020, and it says, hold my beer. Meaning that 20 it's already 2021. All my beer, meaning it could be a more, uh, even more crazy year. Anyway, as we said yesterday, we're um, we're in utopia Australia. It's sad. I'm feeling all right. It's okay. We do
Josh Janssen: [00:35:56] see it. We like, I definitely feel the, some of the residual.
Of the UK in the U S and everything that's happening, we felt fucked last
Tommy Jackett: [00:36:04] year. Let's, let's be honest. That's why we had a break, but the fact, and this is a couple of guys who have had three, three weeks off that are pretty chipper at the moment.
Josh Janssen: [00:36:17] It's a daily talk show. If you enjoy the show, please subscribe on YouTube.
Also. Um, TJ and I were talking about it on yesterday's episode, the eye contact that we have now is beautiful.
Tommy Jackett: [00:36:27] What am I doing? Oh, one more thing. Speaking of lying. I hate your glasses.
Josh Janssen: [00:36:33] Oh, that's hurtful. Oh, you like my glasses? I feel like they're polarizing. I've had a few people say you got new
Tommy Jackett: [00:36:43] glasses.
How long has it taken me to say that though? Because how long have I, to be honest,
Josh Janssen: [00:36:47] I haven't thought about
Tommy Jackett: [00:36:48] like, I, um, Well, that's good that you're not thinking about what people are thinking. Yeah, because I didn't, I, I
Josh Janssen: [00:36:55] said before, I got them these huge expectations. Right. And like the Ray brands coming, get ready for it.
It's going to be big. And then I was just like, you get over it.
Tommy Jackett: [00:37:03] Yeah. Yeah. I mean, so there's a few things I will just say about them taking some time to get used to not like them, but just, you know, when you something new, something new on somebody. Yep. Yep. Um, uh, what got me over the line was when I was standing sort of.
To your side, looking at your profile. And I saw that they say Gucci on them and I thought, fuck this dude. Well, that's the kind of guy I want to hang around with everyday carry
Josh Janssen: [00:37:28] man. Good to, good to get. Uh, I, I do like the glow, my Luna glasses that I have that I've had for Young's the clear ones. I still love them.
And I do. Yeah. In the evenings and stuff, I'll put them on because they're com they're super comfy. You still have the nose hold. Are you sort of things that you can start to rub?
Tommy Jackett: [00:37:48] Probably better footage of Megan.
Hi. Yeah. Do you reckon I can? Yeah. I can't see myself. Like if I cannot say, looks
Josh Janssen: [00:38:02] like, look at, look into your
Tommy Jackett: [00:38:03] camera. I can't see myself. Like, it's like, There's this. So what you, what would you call that magnified? So magnified. I can't see 30 centimeters away from me. It's amazing. Yeah. All right. Have a good one guys.
We'll say tomorrow, say guys.
