Tommy Jackett: [00:00:00] Very low barrier to get into the grown spot.
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.
Josh Janssen: [00:00:12] Just like to check the temperature in the room. I told you my squeegee
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:15] store, right.
Josh Janssen: [00:00:20] The daily talk show episode 949.
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:23] Happy Monday wrongs.
Josh Janssen: [00:00:25] It's the daily talk show where we talk about things that we're interested in. And my name is Josh.
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:31] And, um, I know, I don't know what show I'm on anymore.
Josh Janssen: [00:00:34] We've got Tommy jacket. He's a, he's a wacky job. He's a wacky guy. Yeah, I'm excited to be here, bringing the energy for your Monday morning, wherever you are in the world, whether you're walking your dog or a fib fast, maybe you're thinking about maybe it's, you know, 11:00 AM I'm on Monday.
You you're like what I want right now is a drink, but I'm not going to.
Tommy Jackett: [00:00:58] Yeah. And then, um, You'd be questioning why you're asking for eliminate drink, but maybe you've just come off the holiday bullshit, entered into your bullshit.
Josh Janssen: [00:01:08] Big thing. Not to be confused with some houses. There
Tommy Jackett: [00:01:11] is, there is, he's a guy who I listened to in the early hours of the morning, going to the gym and he's a rainy guy.
It's like, he's got some shifts on a three AWU. Uh, whatever seven, seven, four is. I think it's three w um, he's got some like graveyard shift and he interviews people. And during the interview, he will say something like, so he's, you know, talking about the question and then he would say, um, yeah, that's, that's so good.
And right now we've got Josh Janssen in the building and he's, um, chatting to us about all things. Blah, blah blah. So Josh and he does like a reset every two, three minutes, which I get it. But I was just thinking about the experience of being on the other end of that. Imagine if you were in a conversation with somebody at work and then they all of a sudden get like third-person on you and just be like, Oh right now there's a conversation between two people, right?
By the water cooler, coming back to the water cooler, Josh it's like, it's fucking weird. And all of that shit just is not normal. So cut it out.
Josh Janssen: [00:02:15] Well, even I was, I was watching a video podcast the other day and they, uh, a host had a guest on and they're doing all the admin while the guest sort of sits there.
Like, don't you just want to bring the guests? Like they say, Oh, you know, um, it's been a really good week. Uh, not much is happening. Thanks everyone for the emails. And, um, we've got, uh, Tommy jacket here and then they do the spiel about that. Like just say. Straight away. We've got this person. Hey
Tommy Jackett: [00:02:44] yang. Yeah.
Yeah. It is odd. I went to, um, I went to do a radio interview once and it was with red Simons. And so if he grew up in Australia, you would have watched, um, uh, what's that show. Hey. Hey. Hey. Hey, I was going to say Friday night show. It's a Saturday show. Hey, Hey, it's Saturday. Yep. One of the great television live shows of our, of our time.
Josh Janssen: [00:03:08] had red faces and he had a big gong.
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:11] Yep. Yeah. So red Simons would smash the gong when it was like time for the sort of performance act to stop and then they get judged and it was great old school. Um, loved him growing up, went in to do an interview with red Simons about a video I'd made. And I get there.
The bloke is like whole hosting radio show by himself. Like, you know, he's got his producers outside of the airlock and he's, he's in the studio just doing his thing. The guy literally didn't make eye contact with me. Wouldn't look at me. And we'd look down and, uh, you know, say some sort of shit and was like trying to take the piece of me a bit.
What we, why were you there?
Josh Janssen: [00:03:53] That's probably a good car.
Tommy Jackett: [00:03:54] Was it the old bike video or the thousand steps videos? One of these sort of, I feel silly for me to be
Josh Janssen: [00:04:01] you in studio, because I remember those many times, even like when I was working on Fifi and Jules, And I'll throw up an idea and sometimes it'd get across the line.
They would say now, do we want Josh in studio? And I'm pretty sure that they set our, it would probably derail it if he's in studio. So let's get I'm on the phone. So I'd be outside the studio on the phone line full. I remember that happened to me in a corner. I was dressed in a credential on the phone to them, tell them,
Tommy Jackett: [00:04:29] so Amy's outside of the studio at that point and on my, on my Facebook.
Page. It said that I was an entertainer and then he started like making some jokes about that. And it was like this fucking guy and the piece of meat. This pussy though, I looked me in the eyes to, what did you say? I gave him Atmos respect and we walked out of there, but it's like, it was weed. It was so such a weird, I think it is seeing people that you see on television or in the media.
And then there's like the experience around them. Is a bit different. Like last time I saw Carrie Bickmore walk past me and she had a kids. And so, but I was like, Oh, that's the lady from the project from the radio. But I don't know. I mean, it's, it is, it's all a bit weird anyway, my weekend out.
Josh Janssen: [00:05:17] Can I just say the amount of times you've mentioned that we, that you've seen Carrie,
Tommy Jackett: [00:05:22] that's a big thing.
Where, where were you who was in a place? I really go to, uh, I haven't heard somewhere in Ivanhoe, don't know the name of the straight, but I was there to get a, of lucky under the direction of a friend who said, uh, silver. So good is so good. Okay. And so I went to Summa, so good. And Jay's, it was so good.
Josh Janssen: [00:05:45] And so you were saying on the weekend,
Tommy Jackett: [00:05:46] what happened to you?
Sorry. Sorry. So, um, Friday in the office, we received a parcel and. It was from Trev long drive long is done as a solid and sent us a bunch of goodies. He's if you don't know the tech guy on channel nine. Yup. And there's a thing, the internet
Josh Janssen: [00:06:10] FTM. You go on, he's doing a lot of videos this year on, on YouTube where he's reviewing stuff.
Tommy Jackett: [00:06:15] He's the guy that I referenced when I've seen a new piece of tech. Cause he's been the one who's had it first. Yeah. He's the he's Australia's, um, MKBHD
Josh Janssen: [00:06:26] Australia's layer LaPorte, but I'm even more relevant because he's on television, but he's Trev is one of the few people that my parents will get excited about.
When I mentioned, I know Trey, we saw Trevi did a great job on the. You know, what does Trevor think of high sense? Yeah, I reckon I'm not texting Trev and other tech questions
Tommy Jackett: [00:06:48] anyway. Um, Trevor centers, a bunch of goodies, one box still yet to arrive. Um, but he sent through something that I'd mentioned on the show.
I mean, this is a classic asking you shall receive it. Doesn't always happen to Tommy jacket move. Definitely is. You know, I'm like, you know, I may even throw, Oh, Trev has one of those. Anyway, Travis sent me a robo vac, which I I've always wanted one. I got really fascinated when I saw, uh, Gronk Rob ward. Uh, he has one told me which one he had.
I was like contemplating getting it. You know, one thing comes to another, you see that it's worth 700 bucks. You'd say absolutely not, but I've been sent one from Trev and it's not the one that Rob has the brand. Um, good question. Good question. I'm sure you'd like me to sort of give it a bit of a plug.
The app that I have had to download is cold. Um, uh, my home and it's vital. Viome I can't, I can't remember the name of it, but anyway, it is, I've put it on. I've already made a sale. Let's put it that way. Really? That impressed. So Friday night I got it set up. Surprisingly, I did it quite quickly. It was quicker than my pre out printer.
Josh Janssen: [00:08:00] So it has a or something. So it's like a cradle where it stays. Is that how it works
Tommy Jackett: [00:08:05] a little dog and kennel. It has a kennel. And so the kennel just happens to give it juice
Josh Janssen: [00:08:10] middle of the night. Would you do it or would you like, what, what time of day are you setting it
Tommy Jackett: [00:08:13] up, mate? I had no idea. This was. I had no idea when you could run it.
What, how it sounded, how loud it was. We got home at like six 30 on Friday night.
Josh Janssen: [00:08:27] industrial
Tommy Jackett: [00:08:28] moved down to late morning. No, no, no. We've been kicked out from the noise pollution, so I plugged it in and got it. Got it going. He go, mate, I was just blown away. It maps out your house. So it, it gets a floor plan. Forget paying someone to come in, to do a floor plan, gets you a bloody robo vac to do your floor plan.
And so it started mapping it out and it was like hitting some stuff. And I was like, okay, I obviously need to sort of make room for it to get around, to get it, to map it out. I just could I, I literally it's like my second child before I've had my real second child. Amy's like my, and so we we've given it a nickname.
Bodie came up with it. I said to Bodie, what do you want to call it? Like, had he said, I don't know. And then I said, now something fun, fun. Tell me funny. Tell me. And so he's called it Cracker Cracker. I like Cracker. So Cracker. And I said, where does Cracker come from? They said, Oh, we have crackers at daycare.
And so I can mess. Exactly. So my vacuum's called Cracker and I posted a photo of it, just cruising around saying I'm getting so much joy out of watching this. And then I got this message Saturday morning from a mate. He said, I literally, I literally bought one of, I literally bought one at 3:00 AM last night.
After your video, he bought the same one. He bought the same one. Right. And so I spent the weekend getting this thing going it's next level I am. So
Josh Janssen: [00:10:00] for Bravo, you feel the pressure when you recommend something,
Tommy Jackett: [00:10:04] um, Depends on how you're doing it. If you actually, you're just showing it an influence, who's recommending something you don't care about.
I've got, imagine there's a bit of this thing. I'm not getting paid to mention it. I got it. Afraid. I have another brand or something like that. Anyway, right now, um, at my house, uh, I have a kitchen that has crumbs all in it and I mean, it was baking some muffins yesterday with .
Josh Janssen: [00:10:34] Uh, once, and then you said muffins.
I just want to make a big difference. Did they have icing?
Tommy Jackett: [00:10:39] Uh, the icing got made, but it wasn't put on so their
Josh Janssen: [00:10:43] muffins. So if you said Josh, I've got a cupcake for you, and then he gave me a muffin.
Tommy Jackett: [00:10:48] So can you say that that's yeah, that's my house. Yes. It's mapped out. So currently, uh, I'm about to sing, crack her out, um, to vacuum on, um, a standard setting.
I literally I'm, I'm in the studio. I'm 10 Ks away from a house I've just sent it out. And the reward of seeing it, starting to map with a purple line. Oh, my God, this is so rewarding.
Josh Janssen: [00:11:11] Well, I saw Trevor's got, uh, the equivalent of like a lawn mower, which looks like just. Doing the lawn, which is great. Well,
Tommy Jackett: [00:11:18] yeah, our lawns a bit, that's sad.
Josh Janssen: [00:11:23] So sending you security cameras, which, which will highly require the, uh, on the recommendation thing, we sold our fridge. Uh, it was, uh, bought by, um, uh, breeze, uh, brother gave him a good deal, but, um, we suggested a removalist to pick it up just based on. Bray sister having, uh, bought a mattress from us or no, we just, I think we gave the mattress away.
Um, getting it sent, like with the truck, uh, Bray sister had used this company. It all seemed to have gone well anyway, uh, when it came to the fridge, it was a nightmare. So we had a really nice. Stainless steel sort of, is it stainless steel? Yeah. It's like similar
Tommy Jackett: [00:12:08] to like a opening of two doors,
Josh Janssen: [00:12:12] one big door, one door.
That was a real big door anyway. So we, we, uh, uh, we got some bad vibes because they were meant to get there by mid day. We called them at midday. They said, Oh, we don't think that they'll be able to come today. Now. And we said, look like we've been sitting here since 7:00 AM not leaving the house. It's horrible.
Um, so anyway, uh, they said, okay, we'll get someone by three o'clock. Uh, They, they weren't prepared. They didn't have anything to like stick the door down or things like that. And they said, um, uh, they didn't, even when they came up to the apartment, they didn't have any gear or anything. So they came up and they were getting paid by the hour.
So they look around and then they grab a trolley and, um, uh, Bray said the, the fridges being you'll probably need a truck, so they know. Yeah. They brought a van. Anyway. Uh, I was, uh, I was actually talking to you on the phone at the time and I hear braise yelling out for me. And, um, she's like, hold my phone, hold my phone.
And she was on the balcony filming as they're just smashing the fridge onto the top of the, the van roof. Anyway, Bray went down to tell him off and been like, what the fuck? Because when he was bringing up like, Hey, I don't think you just do it, do it like this. The guy's like, Hey, we're professionals. Just leave it to us.
Anyway, huge, um, deans and stuff on the side of the fridge. Cause by then Bree had filmed a video of the fridge before they gave it before we gave it to them. Also, she took photos, but so what's going to happen. Well, the thing is that there's been a lot of back and forth. Um, but, uh, Bree's dad called the, those removal were on a current affair.
Just the other thing. So how much do you think to take a fridge from Collingwood to, um, officer it's a fair distance, but what do you think? What do you
Tommy Jackett: [00:14:16] think? 50 minute drive? Um, Oh, uh, one 80 or something?
Josh Janssen: [00:14:21] 315. How about this on the invoice? They charge $70 for the use of the trolley. Surely that should be just.
Tommy Jackett: [00:14:33] how, and so there, they were on a current affair, ex an expose. I love a good expense out
Josh Janssen: [00:14:40] of the current affair. And so he had left a bad review and there's heaps and heaps of bad reviews. Um, uh, Bree sister-in-law said that she contacted the, a triple C and there's huge amounts of compliance. The thing is that there's a little bit of.
Responsibility that Wayfield, because we suggested how you use the is based on gray sister's experience. The problem is that Bree's sister didn't point out that like, Oh yeah, they did sort of shove it around in the air. They were sort of like banging down the mattress when they were putting it in.
Tommy Jackett: [00:15:10] Um, and so you CA can you do anything if the business has been.
Come at like that. Yeah. So where are they still in operation? So they
Josh Janssen: [00:15:17] offered 150, $50 Bray sister-in-laws said, Hey, um, we just want a refund of the amount they're saying no, we're sending all of the, the, uh, the content. And so it's, uh, it's not great.
Tommy Jackett: [00:15:32] It's that is bad.
Josh Janssen: [00:15:34] Like just moving shit in general is, uh, is, uh,
Tommy Jackett: [00:15:37] finally we went to a place on Saturday morning, so Amy's full nest mode.
Josh Janssen: [00:15:43] buying, buying shit. I read that on Friday. There were, there was a very low blow up in, uh, I think she, I think she had a, what was she picking up? She was picking up something that seemed a little bit trivial and you sort of had to point out, it's like, Hey, the reason why I'm responding. Like this is because every Saturday for the past six weeks, Amy has sent me out to buy something dumb from the market.
Tommy Jackett: [00:16:07] she had me booked in, I mean, and she's even just doing it herself. Um, and so, yeah, she sent me a couple of weekends ago. Oh, we're buying a toolkit for authority. And I saw the photo. This thing looked great. Sort of like a, almost like a workstation had some drills, had some it's all plastic stuff. Yeah.
Get there, get there. I'm like, Oh, I'll have it fits in the car. She gets it it's fucking size of a football it's she, this woman has taken a photo with a wide angle lens on close, which makes anything look really big. And so it was in good Nick. It was 20 bucks. It was a good experience, but it does lock it.
And so the Saturday morning, uh, I think it was a 9:00 AM appointment at someone's house. Yeah. Um, 15 minutes away from where we live. And this is for a rocking chair or like a braiding chair, breastfeeding chair. And so it's the, you know, classic nesting F you know, filling out the room with stuff that we need that we'll probably won't use when the baby comes.
That's what happened. You're like, Oh, are we going to use all of this, this change table next minute, you're changing. Shitty nappies on the bed. Yeah. He like, I don't
Josh Janssen: [00:17:16] give them and you start with the chair and then you move to the futon, which I heard happen in real time and says, as Amy was showing, you said, that's the chat, but obviously we will get the food.
Tommy Jackett: [00:17:25] and so there was this good looking chair, great looking chair, but he sort of looked velvety like electrically sort of P D pinky or sick, sick, uh, had like a little, uh, Ottoman.
Josh Janssen: [00:17:39] Um, seems like something could see in Mrs. White's like photos, don't you think you can imagine
Tommy Jackett: [00:17:45] it's like a brand new seventies vibe get there, this, this person selling stuff, brand new.
Cause they have like a shop that they do. They sell, you know, brand new products. I just see it. I'm just like, Oh, and he's like, Oh, there is sort of one thing that we've noticed when pulling it out. It looks like someone's taken a 16 Shiv and stabbed the chair. It's going to rip Mark in the back of it, right?
Like on the actual material that your back lays onto. And he's like, look, I've contacted the supply. This has just happened. I've you know, as it's been, I mean, it's like not, he wouldn't have done it. Right. He's now got this chair, but that wasn't
Josh Janssen: [00:18:23] the one that was photographed.
Tommy Jackett: [00:18:25] Wasn't the one that's photographed.
Cause he just taken it out of the box. Okay.
Josh Janssen: [00:18:28] And it, we can't expect you to take
Tommy Jackett: [00:18:30] that. Well, he says, well, we can give you cost price, which I didn't believe what cost price was because it was still three 50.
Josh Janssen: [00:18:39] I think you're being screwed because the thing is that anytime anyone says cost price, there's a lot of shit going on the amount of the amount of stuff that.
I remember having going to Clive Peters. I don't know if they're still around. I don't think they are, but they gave me a lot of shit at cost price Rocephin,
Tommy Jackett: [00:18:55] still around.
Josh Janssen: [00:18:57] I feel like the good guys just swallowed them all up.
Tommy Jackett: [00:18:59] Good guys. Being Lee. That's a Sydney being late, being late is a new South Wales
Josh Janssen: [00:19:04] connected with eBay.
Like they do a lot of like, no, as in they have an eBay shop, they sell. So anyway, sorry. How much was it before
Tommy Jackett: [00:19:11] the discount for something for 24 30. And so he was taking
Josh Janssen: [00:19:15] 70 bucks off for a fucking tear in the middle? Well, he's like, Oh, was the only one.
Tommy Jackett: [00:19:19] There was only one there. And I, and I'm like, and I immediately said, I, cause Bodhi was causing me to of, I said, The effort that it's going to take to do, to put that patch that together is well beyond the savings.
And I just left and then I let Amy let him down, but it was just a really crummy quality catch tone. It was like probably just, you know, factory made thousands of these things and they just ship them, ship them overseas. And so I was like, you could see the, you'd see the sort of, it looked like the stuffing inside a Teddy bear behind there, behind the fabric.
And so anyway, what would you like to see. Not that it looks like white pubic hair,
Josh Janssen: [00:20:00] but normally you wouldn't even see the inside. Do you think that you would have, you would have gotten it if it didn't have
Tommy Jackett: [00:20:05] that tear? Now I SU I saw Amy sit down on it and it looked. It's meant to it's. I mean, they they've feeding chairs, but it looked like the wonkiest fucking chair you've ever seen meant to rock.
No, I don't think it was okay. It didn't look comfy. She sat down and I was like, that does not look comfy would have looked good in the bedroom, but it wouldn't have been copy. This is the thing about a lot of these cheap products online. They look great, but then they're, they're not, they're not good quality.
They're not great in our actually cries. Yeah. And sorry. Anyway, I dunno where I'm after this week, but
Josh Janssen: [00:20:40] sure. I mean, that's still going to go in to get a chair.
Tommy Jackett: [00:20:44] I think. So I said, I'd rather get like an old one, like as in a good quality old one for cheap,
Josh Janssen: [00:20:52] it seems to be heaps of people doing renovations and like, or just.
Painting and like, that's a big thing now. I think that people spent time during COVID living in their shithole houses or whatever, and be like, I'm not dealing with this anymore.
Tommy Jackett: [00:21:06] Oh yeah. I mean, a lot of people are spending money. Now the property prices are going up 25% in some areas. My dad was telling me that's crazy.
Um, just based on everyone wanting to get out, um, Gronk Shannon up in Queensland was saying that she's wanting to move to the gold coast from Brisbane and it's everyone from Melbourne and Sydney, uh, buying up the places there. Yeah. Everyone's just deciding to, you know,
Josh Janssen: [00:21:32] it's a big, like I'm noticing it's so much more like the people quitting their jobs completely changing their life because they've had that a whole year where it's like, you got to reflect on everything.
Tommy Jackett: [00:21:44] I mean, it's, it's not even a year it's bodies' birthday in two weeks time and two. And what are we doing for it? Yeah. A big party mate, party bus. Uh, what else? You know,
Josh Janssen: [00:21:57] as many kids as last time.
Tommy Jackett: [00:21:59] Well, here's the thing you can't, you can only have 30 people at your house, according to the COVID restrictions, but last time it was a nightmare because we had what you don't realize.
I mean, if you have never had a child party where they actually have friends is, you know, like friends outside of the ones that you just know, mates who have got kids daycare, it could be two parents coming with one kid. So if you get two parents, if you get 10 kids could be another 20, 20 fucking. So there's 30 people on top.
It's a nightmare. So I don't know, we're trying to work through it out fast ones, but we had, it has one parent come, a guy who was at bodies' birthday last year had quarantined. Because of COVID he'd been in and this was like, I didn't even know what it was. I was asking him like, so what, you know, um, you, you were over in Wareham.
What are you doing? What do you know about? He's just like, yeah, I did a quarantine with the family. It was very basic. No one knew, but then one month later she did hit the fan. So we're not even a year. We're not even like a year into when the lockdown started, but it's feeling pretty normal, but they're now,
Josh Janssen: [00:23:05] but is it?
Yeah, I guess so. But, um, I think on the weekend I watched about 10 videos on this game. Stop thing.
Tommy Jackett: [00:23:13] Yeah. I had some good banter at a pub on Pat the game stop thing. Yeah.
Josh Janssen: [00:23:18] So I mentioned it to earlier in the week, very hard to explain, like, if, unless it's do you know what I mean? Like me explaining it, I couldn't do it in a way that gave any interests.
Tommy Jackett: [00:23:31] I had two people, two people explaining to me and I was questioning them both. And there was, there was some conflicting things between those two and like, they seem to know more, a lot more than I did. And it's still confusing in essence though, it's the,
Josh Janssen: [00:23:47] don't want to hear anyone else explain it,
Tommy Jackett: [00:23:49] but the rich people who run the hedge funds have lost out to the little guys who have fought back the investors.
Yeah. And so that's in short, it's like, You see how, um, how much power rich people have, and these people that run these apps, like Robin hood that allow you to die tried, they can fucking just cut things off. And then everybody's,
Josh Janssen: [00:24:12] which is, that's a whole other part of the story, right? So it's like, that's another, there was, yeah, there was the whole short-selling stuff where it's like the big hedge funds are saying, Hey, we think.
The GameStop is overvalued. And so they do something where they basically say, I think that in this amount of time, it's going to be worth less. They borrow it, borrow that stock with the idea that they'll sell it, uh, or they'll give that stock back to the person that they borrowed it off. In the meantime they take the profit.
Tommy Jackett: [00:24:41] Yeah. I mean that whole concept of like who let you take your, who let them take your stock. So Josh Janssen buys stock, then they take Josh Janssen stock and then sell it. And then give it back to you. It's like, did you give
Josh Janssen: [00:24:53] permission? Yeah. Well, so there's, I think it comes down to, um, like there's fees associated.
So they, they pay a fee for the privilege of being able to do it. Yeah. But there was
Tommy Jackett: [00:25:02] a great episode, oversold the shit out of the game stock stock, which was a big problem, how it's even legal and they should, it
Josh Janssen: [00:25:10] shouldn't be. But anyway, I think that the interesting thing is don't you think that way more people are just thinking about all of this stuff now?
Like just these things happening. Like I have no idea about stocks and finance, like this side of the finance thing. I wonder if it's
Tommy Jackett: [00:25:26] our age as well, like you're in your thirties, you know, you start, you should, you should, is it probably silly term, but like more likely people in their thirties are going to be starting to think about the investment strategy for money that they're earning.
Yeah. Did you live at
Josh Janssen: [00:25:43] like when I was a kid, I remember, um, Yeah. Being at like a family events and then someone saying, Oh yeah, I like, yeah, I have stocks or whatever I actually know about like this. Um, uh, Microsoft is about to buy this company. So if you like buy their stock, it's going to go through the roof, blah, blah, blah.
And I remember saying to my dad, it's like, dad, We need to invent, like we need to like, just, we need to do it.
Tommy Jackett: [00:26:06] Yeah. You need the money. You need money to be able to embed. Yeah. I had, um, family, friends that would do it. That'd be up on the computer every morning. And then, um, but I mean, this is the thing you need to have the interest in it and starting to understand it.
It's like. My mate has been investing in Bitcoin. He said like, he likes superannuation from the beginning and now it's like, he won't tell me how many Bitcoins he has. Um, but buying them at like a hundred dollars a coin, like there's $30,000 now. And so my only point with it. I should have he's my best friend.
I should have been doing what he was doing, this a silly thought, but he's been into that whole crypto, the currency, the blockchain from 2011, like interested in at all. And so that's his reward for everyone who was interested in it? You, if he was interested in the stock market back then was willing to do that.
Josh Janssen: [00:27:01] like, I think there's an arrogance that can come with all this stuff where it's like, people think that they had fucking geniuses worth like. This stuff is very luck
Tommy Jackett: [00:27:10] driven as well. 100%. I mean, people were buying Telstra stocks years ago. They going at went real bad. I mean, I just remember it went from something like $80 to, in the doll, in the single digits for awhile.
Josh Janssen: [00:27:26] Do you remember the, um, so there was a documentary that was
Tommy Jackett: [00:27:28] for every winner. There's a shitload of losers out there to like it for anything in life.
Josh Janssen: [00:27:34] Yeah. There's um, uh, Dave Ramsey. Yeah. Yeah. Who's the, um, the
Tommy Jackett: [00:27:38] American Scott Pape. Yeah, yeah, yeah,
Josh Janssen: [00:27:41] yeah. Um, yeah, I think they've, they've very sort of, a lot of the similar sort of, um, strategies created
Tommy Jackett: [00:27:48] a real personality and a brand out of their financial
Josh Janssen: [00:27:51] advice.
The minimalist had a bunch to do, uh, with him. Uh, I think, uh, yeah, Dave's even on the latest minimalism doco he's in that, but I'm a guy called up. Um, saying, Hey, I I've just won $45,000 or I've made $45,000 on the game. Stop stock. What should I do with the money? And it was just a funny thing because he, obviously, his whole thing is, um, long-term, you know, um, straight ETFs where you put it in index funds and it goes up over a long time, all that.
But, um, uh, it was funny. It's like, Oh, so you don't take my advice on how to invest in. Now you want to take my advice on how to spend it. So he's saying, uh, but there's a good doco that I watched. I can't remember the name. But if you type in herbal life, stock documentary, do you remember this? I spoke to spoke about it probably two years ago, but it's all about short selling
Tommy Jackett: [00:28:47] and he's Dave, uh, Ackman who's Ackerman.
The guy who's at the center. He came out is a hedge fund manager. And he came out and said that he owns a bunch of Hilton hotels. And he came out and said, um, we're fucked. The economy's done. And he's using other language, but basically drove the fear into so many people that got out of their stock got out of their shares and he was buying up a bunch of, um, a bunch of hotel stock.
I interesting. The problem is he's a well-known hedge fund, hedge fund manager. And that, that can almost be illegal. You can't do people as someone who's got interest in the result of what could happen. And so he, this is where, um, if you watch, uh, Dave Portnoy Portnoy, the Bastl sports founder, he's been going hard at him.
He's been going hard than everybody, but you see where it's like, we're in a time where. You know, I want to get on top. Well, and we don't want to be fucked over by large court.
Josh Janssen: [00:29:52] So the thing about stock manipulation from what? I've sorry,
Tommy Jackett: [00:29:55] guys. Oh my God. Um, Cracker. Oh, no,
Josh Janssen: [00:29:59] what's happened. Oh, Oh no. Vacuum.
Tommy Jackett: [00:30:02] Crack has stuck under my bed. Oh, no. Keep going. Escape failed. Escape failed. Please. Clear obstacles around the device and try again. It's the books I left some next
Josh Janssen: [00:30:13] Tyrone's at hiding.
Tommy Jackett: [00:30:16] I was worried that, so this is the thing as much as I will say that I love my vac. There is, um, you know, like any good tech product there's product problems.
And he's coming to, this is where school.
Josh Janssen: [00:30:30] Yeah, yeah. Yeah. They've had a
Tommy Jackett: [00:30:32] it's it's a, they've had a one they've had a fight and. Crack is lost.
Josh Janssen: [00:30:39] Can you shut it down now?
Tommy Jackett: [00:30:40] Um, I'll S I'll try charge back. I'm sending it to charge. See if it can get out, have another escape the other day. He, um, he sucked up a Mandalorian costume and couldn't move.
And so I had the, I had the rescue Cracker. Um,
Josh Janssen: [00:30:55] um, but yeah, on the, on the stock thing, I think of that, why it's different is normally you can't do the whole stock manipulation by people like Warren Buffett saying, Hey, like, you know, do this, or do that. However, this is sort of a distributed attack on these things because it's like all of these individuals doing it and working together, which is, you know, I guess they, they need potentially, um, to, to update.
All of this stuff based on what's what's happening in 2021. I mean, just
Tommy Jackett: [00:31:25] search it if you want to watch them. There's some great breakdowns, like so many, and I still don't get it, but there is people who have spent a lot of time breaking these down and breaking the whole game stock. Game stop thing down docks down
Josh Janssen: [00:31:39] through a tricky, tricky one.
But I mean, the funny thing is, what I wanted to say was that I was a bit over hearing about it and I've just spoken about it for,
Tommy Jackett: [00:31:48] you know, the edgy
Josh Janssen: [00:31:48] bit. Did we though it is a big Wang, like saying St. Paul talk about it. Crack
Tommy Jackett: [00:31:55] is still stuck on his second attempt to get out. I might have to leave today early to go home rescue.
Josh Janssen: [00:32:01] Really? No, I'm not. I'm not. Do you think he's going? If we had the
Tommy Jackett: [00:32:05] six years they stop, when, when you know you break your leg, you stop, right? Yeah. He's broken his leg, but he will be back. Okay.
Josh Janssen: [00:32:13] What does it do if you had stairs?
Tommy Jackett: [00:32:15] Doesn't a good point, but we don't know, but this, this one has a mop too. Oh, wow.
And so I water. So you take out the cartridge that sucks up and holds all the dust and you fill it, fill this other cartridge with water, put it in, connect up this thing that looks like a chucks or like a wipe that's, you know, stuck to the bottom of it. And it then moves around like a snail and leaves, like a little wet patch.
It's funny, like a little slightly, you know, it looks like a slimy. It looks like a little slug and it worked, it worked, did the whole. Hello, I'm Hawaii implies. I'm loving it.

Josh Janssen: [00:34:17] up. Oh man, this was, we probably didn't even have to order them.
I could have just gotten the Wendy's cup.
Tommy Jackett: [00:34:22] Maybe that's what we could do. Start getting vintage big cups.
Josh Janssen: [00:34:27] I mean, cut that whole thing. You know that I will,
Tommy Jackett: [00:34:32] let's say in a guys Murphy's vintage apparel. Selling old. Oh, that's good. T-shirts and like old vintage. T-shirts the maths. I
Josh Janssen: [00:34:40] think that's like a there's there used to be a shop on like near Flinders street or I think retro star or something.
I remember getting a, um, a Beatles top that was about three sizes too small for me. Did you wear it? Because it was just, just real tight,
real fun. Alrighty. Enjoy your rest of your Monday. My St. Mara guys have a good one. Say guys.
