It's good to be doing this podcast as return season, because we have gained funding once again. I'm joking with offen. It's good to be back. It's good back. I think we're finished a suspension. Maybe we've called that. We had had it and go by it from spotify. New Management. Yeah, new management at said Caster, and what we're got to go again? That's it. It's a clever dummies podcast and the ZEN caster software under new management. It so just got renewed for season two. Clever Dumis podcasts leveling up here, baby. It's good to be back here because we are at the same place, roughly the same type, when we first release our first episode of clever time his podcast. So it's kind of a full circle and for those who were paying attention in high school English. That's kind of a juxtaposition, if you will. Yeah, same, same, but different. It was early January of last year. Obviously we've all made it through a very big and very trying two thousand and twenty and on the one hand we're proud and I'm excited for the twenty episodes we've got under our belt so far, but we've only just cracked the can of the clever dummies podcast and it's time to pour out the jug a little bit more into into everybody's ear holes and let the art flower a little bit more, if you will. So let's get the ball roll and my buddy and I think we just pick what let's just pick up kind of where we left off, and I guess we can kind of give a little update on how we've been what we've been up to. I feel like your circumstances the one that's most prevalent right now, because it's crazy end or chaotic. So if you get if you wanted to get under way, you're more than welcome to my dude, we'll do, will do. Just before I get into it, so just quickly wanted to say although this is episode number twenty, one or the first episode of season two. Technically there's more episodes that we haven't released yet, but we'll try to get like a directress gut or whatever you were saying. What do we want to call it? At the episode though.

No one called twenty and twenty one the year, but you know what, screw it, I'm going to call it our year anyways. It's going to be a great year, so I have high hops. Holder in saying that, I'm kind of so late last year I took took off on a little bit of a trip and it up law ended up north of US, north of Melbourne, up towards you lachlen in coffs harbor. Drove up to Barron as well, which is beautiful. It was a night. That was the first time out of Melbourne, wasn't it? You'd that's right, it was been there for quite what I would have been obviously pre covid. So yeah, pretty covid. So roughly seven months, roughly after seven months in Melbourne, borders opened up. I took a drive up towards north went and S Lockland. So my parents went up to know, went up to north North North course, and then ended up back at my parents in Sydney. And then, what do you know, I get locked down into Sydney and I couldn't go back to Melbourne. At the moment I'm in the process of moving back to Sydney just because I thought it was nice to spend more time with family and friends, because being in...

Melbourne is incredible. I love Melbourne. Melbourne is a beautiful city, but it's there's something about trying to stay with your friends and family as well, especially after the year we've had. Last year, two thousand and twenty. But now then I draw it was a reminder, wasn't that a good reminder of maybe some of the important things in life? Well, that's been positively. Well, that's exactly right. That's what I'm doing, spinning it POSSI would you know. Yeah, you know, you're like, oh, go back down see the boys, you know, will get back in Melbourne'll just dip my toe in there. Couple of days later, one case and doctor Dan Swings at Guillotine, straight over it please. That's exactly what I was like, I gotta I'M gonna go back down to Melbourne quickly, suss out how everything's going wrap up few things, back up my shit, head back down to Sydney. I was only going to be here for a week and a half, a week, you know, but I'm here now. I can't go back to Sydney because, you know, Dr Dan kind of locked US up again. I mean, I get it, I get certain aspect of it, but also, you know, maybe we don't speculate from a government's point of view, but then why would we be here? So we are going to do exactly that. Yeah, acculate. I just want to say Sydney had the similar sort of cases situation going on, but somehow they managed it. You know, they had the whole they looked up north northern suburbs of Sydney and then they said rest of the rest of the town was fine to move around. But Melbourne had similar sort of situation and they said, you know what this is it everyone goes down into a lockdown for five days, allegedly for five days. The reason I say allegedly because there's been a rumor going around saying that Dr Danny's considering going extending the lockdown for another couple of weeks now. Well, let's right, two weeks of flatten a curve, wasn't it? Two weeks to flatten the gurve. So now I think. I think they're going to be less likely to go all out there. You know, the hopefully better prepared and we know the source of where these latest instances have come from, hotel quarantine. So you know, it's now more than ever it's time to figure that situation out. But Hey, like you know, you unfortunately you're in a situation where you don't know what's going to happen and they kind of don't know what they're doing either. So hopefully for your own sake and for every single person still in Melbourne, those those soldiers that decided against the urge to leave, when I know many people did, half of me and something like that. Hopefully for their sake and, you know, for the the strain open to the biggest strain, one of the biggest trading aboard our sporting events of the year. For me it makes me realize how much I present tennis like. I love playing. It's fine to get out there and slap around a bit, but just something about the what it brings, I don't know, I just just doesn't do it for me. I don't like it. But Hey, you know it's pretty pretty chaotic. Yeah, it's a weird sport, isn't it? Like it's I've always I mean we're till people start getting upset, but it's always seemed like it just seemed like it's an unusual sport. I know people bag on cricket of their fitness levels, but I always thought tennis kind of required a very minimal fitness. I'm Never gonna let that go. Miss Lawson's read that day. I'm Never gonna let that go. Oh, miss loss it miss loss shutout shoes actually the deputy principle of the school. Now, yeah, could o put she's ripping a tear and but yeah, she you know, she taught us in Pedh in high school, to give a little bit of backstory there. And one day she very pinion edded strong woman. She's, you know, actually probably an inspiration. Now that I look back and think about it, she's probably one of my favorite tea join it isn't and yet a pretty sat as much as maybe I could have back in the days. But yeah, one day she decided to just rip on us about playing cricket and how it's not a professional sport and the athletes don't have to be in shape. You know I mean, if you have a look at Prime Shane warn, I can understand how you believe that. But this, that little odd comment you just made then about cricket, is like only the other week I was thinking about it too, and something about her little speech are just has stuck in my head and I'm hoping it's this. I'll see her one day and then maybe we can have a we could continue the discussion. Shout...

...out to Miss Lesian. We can have a yeah, shut out shout out to Miss Lawson. But yeah, it's I just don't know. It's just doesn't seem like a sport that requires very high amount of I mean, sure it probably requires some level of cardio, but I don't see. Yeah, another long games to the think about like three, three or four matches, I think, which is the no the sets, which is like the six sets. To win you got to get to six first. If it's like six and five, you've got to be two points ahead, something like that. There's three of those. A lot of the male females only played two sets. If you win the to you win, males have to play two, three, which is kind of weird. I feel like that's you know, we're in a stage now with that doesn't need that should change and we should be playing that even but they can easily go for three, four, five, six hours like that, and that's just it's very aerobic and anaerobic at the same time. Like there's a lot of fast twitch. You've got to be constantly ready to go and if you ever seen a tennis match live like that, ball is traveling hundreds of CAS an our like it's fucking moving as well. You know, almost kind of like cricket. Yeah, well, that's right, that's right. This is the can and it is what it is like. Rod Laver Arenas a beautiful arena, but it's the perfect example of what a good tennis stadium is like. There's not a lot of breeze in there, like that's just a big suction of just warm air circling around. So I think I'll have to disagree with you. In regards to the fitness, I think they're pretty. They're pretty. They're all pretty shredded, like they have to be in great condition for the sport. I don't know what it is for me. I just I've just never liked the way it's covered on TV. I've never liked it. Just doesn't do a lot for me in terms of a desire to go watch it and, like, I appreciate the sport for what it is, but yeah, I just don't like the whole coverage with it. I worked in the betting agency for a little bit as well. I didn't like the gambling side of it. It just was a it's a really weird sport with a lot of the rules internal, how matches are played and how the world ranking. Ever, it's just, yeah, I just don't like the way it's run. And then there's something about the culture that it brings, like it's fan base, that turns me off it. A lot of people feel the same way about, like the UFC, for example, too. So each to their own, I guess. I guess maybe it's just thought I was support yeah, well, that's right away, just here at the clever time. He his podcast. We do not endorce. Yeah, anywhere we do. It's Australian sporting events on look at and it was anything with Australian name on it. Yeah, you know, you what you won't say, be watched out the the stavates. But Hey, you know, if you want to take I can get amongst it. It's up to you. Big Anyway. Well, it's conxactly. That's exactly right. So you know, they here we are. So this is the kind of the situation. So it's a little bit of I guess you could say it's a grind. My gear session almost shout out, shout back to the old suns of summer days. But yeah, that's going bad, you know. Yeah, but you know it is. Dare I say it is what he did. He's know what? We've got a yeah, we've got about a hundred untapped followers on that facebook page. We can capitalize. Or maybe that's a fore might as well. Yeah, I think we might back it did. Yeah, I think we're moge the wemerge the page with other cleaver time is yeah, so the you know, carry those people are like if you subscribe to someone on Youtube and they're like, they're they're into like sport coverage, like I've watched a few people that like they cover they talked about sports or gaming or something else, and then you don't watch him for three months and you come back and they're like wearing make America great to get hats. So that you know, I don't even tell you. They change the name of their chat or it's just like what the fuck, I never subscribe to this, but I'll tell you good way to do it again. It's right and I was just about to say, man, that dude. Yeah, the biggest three hundred and sixty in days. I work and Hey, it's actually a really good video out there that it's goes for it goes for about an hour and a half. There's a guy who went through the evolution of Elliott Horse from back in about twos and eight when he first started making the videos. Right until now he's actually had about six or seven chant like shifts. It's actually really interesting. I might even send that to that. It's actually crazy. But yeah, now, more than ever, it's like he's selling Akk. Yeah, he he has to be.

I wouldn't say that, but he's. Yeah, like he's got like he's the way he makes his money. Now he's come out with this book about like masculine and he's teaching blokes to be real men again, like it's pretty crazy. It is crazy. Yeah, I mean it's up to see some be at the beginning of what he used to do strength camp and all those boot GAMS stuff, and used to talk about, you know, breathe with your dog balls and yeah, and yeah, balls and like speaking slour and love. You know, that's a signs of masculity. I'm like, that makes sense. You know, everyone should speaks Laura and speak from the balls and all that stuff. Right, that made sense. Speak from the Dave Hey, like no, a hundred percent. That's something I took from big time. Yeah, a hundred percent. Same here. And now he's going into this thing. I saw this post about how he is, how he doesn't let his wife work for anyone else because, you know, he doesn't want his wife to cheat on him. I was like, what the hell, this dude, crazy man? WHO's on with him? Yeah, yeah, some of US bit some of his q and a's as well, where you see what he's like. You can kind of tell a lot by people and not always like you're going to attract a certain type of audience, but that's the questions he gets asked and that you can just kind of get a an understanding of the people that following him as well what they're after to. But through the video you could see he was like I kind of stopped watching him. Maybe there a high school just like two thirty. After that stage he actually went like really feminine for like a year, like legit went, went like fully feminist. He grew his hair out, didn't put the training videos anymore. Then he stopped that. He he became a shaman, so he became like this spiritual leader, started talking about like a lot of Buddhist teachings and techniques, and then he had some time off and then he kind of went back to strength and then now he's yeah, it's really interesting and to his credit, like he's actually never shied away from it. He just said, like I'm constantly evolving as a person, and I think this the climate we live in now. Maybe to segue out of a little bit. The climate we live in now are forcing a lot of people to maybe ask themselves those questions, like, like the life, like yeah, there's no better time in the time that you're actually forced to do it. You've got time to think, or people losing work or whatever else like you, what's who's the person actually want to become here with the people I want to associate myself? If who? Do I what media or do I want to consume? That sort of thing, and I feel like we've actually I've seen it a lot of shift in a lot of other people, even with my personal life as well. Constant evolution. So it's interesting. Again, that's a very well put put together thought thought there lock then it's actually very true. When you put it like that, that actually kind of makes a lot of sense and actually, funny enough, when you put it like that, actually kind of adds a little bit of you know, you're almost kind of feel necessarily sorry, but you you feel you empathize or you know, you peel empathy towards what anyone is going through, which is which is exactly what you want. But the interesting thing that I was going to say was, and this kind of brings me back to I think we've spoken about this. So fight club is ALD probably one of the all time greatest films of all time ever made, made right. So they were brightly ages like wine, like he's a beautiful one, but that was truly prime bright people. WAS NOT. Late s a very was so brilliant in yeah, Short city. So this is speech. I'm going to quickly. I read it out, so I'm going to do a horrible JIEF and job at it. I'm not going to do him justice, but I'm going to read it out anyway because this reminded me of that particular speech. Soon as you said that, they said Um, I said, man, I see fight club the strongest. Oh Yeah, men. I see at the five men, I see at the fight clubs, at the strongest, the smartest men who ever lived. I see all of this potential. I see I see smartness, God damn it, and entire generation of pumping gas, pumping gas, waiting tables, shaved white colors, advertisement jobs. Okay, I'll get to the main part. This is we have missed it over. Okay, all right, man, if I see in the night, all right men, I see in fight, in the fight club, the strongest and the smartest men who have...

...ever lived, I see this potential, I see squandling, God damn it, and entire generation of pumping gas, waiting tables, slaving with white collar jobs. Advertising has US chasing cars, clothes, working jobs. We hate so we hate jobs. We eight so we can buy this shit that we don't care about. We're in the middle of her children. We are the Middle Children of history. No, no purpose or place. We have no great war, no great depression. Our Great War is the spiritual wall our our great depression is our lives. We've all been raised on raised on television to believe that one day will all be millionaires and the movie gods and the Rock Stars. But we want and will slowly. We are all slowly learning the fact and we are very pissed off about it. So this particular speech right and, like I said before, I probably didn't do it justice because it's not written well. It's written without all the punctuations I was trying to figure out. Anyway. Yeah, so what and what I grunted lot of a movie is well so the context of the film. Yet so when he talks about this, and I really like this because this is so almost like so this actually, I would say this speech was relevant all the way through till covid nineteen. So because we talked about this before. It's been such a long time. Something horrendous had happened before like covid nineteen, and there was no great war. You know, we all did that. We all thought. We all think we're going to be millionaires, the movie gods in the Rock Stars, and it's true that. You know, the our war is the spiritual world. That's why people like Elliott host go into this spiritual war, if you will, you know, where they're trying to figure out who they are. Maybe they're the person with the feminine one, or maybe they're the masculine one, or maybe they're part of the K K kick, like a kick. Okay, right, the WHO the hell knows? Right. But it's interesting because I think that film is still so relevant because it just makes sense when you look at it from that angle. You know, and Deefer, the proud boys. Who Else is there? And that's it's crazy, because there's a lot to unpack about that speech and it was a really great moment. If anyone's not seeing it's just a bit of a timeless movie. It seeps some movies. You go back and you watch and you kind of you enjoy it, but like man that has an age. Well, that one really hasn't. The the poignant moment in that movie kind of was that speech as well, and it was kind of like him, you know, he'd gone into this underworld that he you know, from the outside looking and was just these VR these you know, criminals and thugs who are just fighting, but ultimately they're actually going back almost in time in a way. They were going back to a primal time in human existence where they were just fighting, like it was forget about I didn't care what you do for work, I don't care, you know, the color your skin, the creed, you know, everything else. It's you. Can you fight? Can you how much harder willing to show when the adversity comes and everything else, and so so many great scenes of that movie as well, and I think that's what this time is proven and what this kind has done in a lot of good ways to there are some so many bad things in. There's there's a lot of people out there who are trying to capitalize on that, the the negativity of the current situation. But, but, but, at the same time, there a lot of people who are being forced to reevaluate their lives, the way they think, to people, they act or around and act with and everything else. So it's yeah, it's just one of those things and something we always speak about. It's just about constantly trying to get to that point where you're trying to achieve some of you're trying to strive to be better. We always have those setbacks, but your mindset has to be ahead in that regard, because if you're you live too far at if you're too reactive in the moment, than any bad thing every day can change your entire day. At the same time, you need to live your life in the moment. We spend too much time the opposite of this that as well, but you need to be in the in the moment and you need to be ahead as well, and you need to not let the outside you...

...need to be like an analyst of your outside world and try to think about those things and react and try to realize and try to rationalize with people and understand why people are doing what they're doing as well, and you can be super empathetic as well. A lot of the things that I'm kind of going on a little bit of a tangent here, but like there's so many things that I have heard Gary v say over the years and some things make a lot of sense at the time, at the moment, and some things it's like he talks a lot about empathy and talks a lot about showing compassion and those sort of things, and it's kind of like, well, why is you know, he's a business guy. Why is this at the forefront of what he's talking about? It's because when you get to that state of practice, of being in their pathetic mindset and you actually start to embody empathy in your life, you actually realize like you start to be more forgiving of people's circumstances, but you also start to safeguard yourself and not put yourself in those situations where you can be affected by them as well. So it's really it's really amazing what the constant like being about that life, if you will, trying to constantly evolve and get better. It's amazing how these areas it's like it's not on our time frame. Like I'm going to go back to God here, but he's got a plan for us. It's we've got to live our life and we're going to meet these points and we're going to meet these people. We can shift and move around when it comes, but we can't try to force these things. But we just got to get on that right track. And it's amazing how these little things comes up and maybe you know in March and April, May when the lockdowns will coming in and everything else, it was like the end of the world and now sure where it's? You know it's it's something we're used to. So we have pre prior experience we can lean on and hey, it's not the end of the world, but now it just is what it is. We just got to get for you got to do with it and you got to move on. So it's yeah, that that movie. I just think about watching that movie again. I actually want to Reado it. Yeah, such a great move. There's so many O's. A good film. It's one of the Games of nuggets in yeah, if you want to check out any of the summary notes, we will be available a number podcast website level dubs podcastcom if anyone wants check out continuous plug. I'm shameless. Now. Anyway, what that, right, actually brings me bring somethin a little note that I actually kind of took before the other day. In fact, I've got two notes to actually just quickly talk about. Right. So this is a quote from from, actually, funny enough, both of them, from Marcus a realist. Marcus are realist real is, was emperor of the Roman leader, one of the Romans leaders. I think Roman. Yeah, I think would have been one of the Romans leaders. So he was a he was into what did they call it? The philosophy, the ancient philosophy, the the the whatever they call it. To Seneca was the same philosopher those from that era. There's a name for him, right. Keep forgetting what the name is. From a right. anyways, Seneca was one of words association. Where is it from? Is it a certain period of time as a part of the world? Seneca? Seneca, Marcus realist, was the same kind of it's a type of philosophy. Damn, I guess, completely blanking out. Anyway, we'll get to that. So the first note is we, when we forget our ability to choose, we learn to be helpless. Drip by drip, we allow our power to be taken away until we end up becoming a function of other people's choice or even a function of our own past choices. So kind of what we talked about there. It's like, you know, if once we start forgetting and start letting go of that letting, letting go of our Y or what we function for, do things happen? One thing, we let our circumstance, dances or our people, other people, define us who we end up becoming. So we take Halli it host, for example. Perhaps his spiritual war is because he probably doesn't have a strong self identity. So he's so forever changing where. You know, I'm not saying that we are probably the strongest mentally people, but you know, you look at you...

...listen to this podcast or what the year relatively we maintain the same sort of mental mental you know, positioning on things and a mental strength is similar. It's been pretty constant right for I hope it stays the same. So just an example of that is perhaps I'm not saying we are strong, but I'm saying that's probably more reflective of the fact that, you know, everyone should change with time. Everyone should develop with time, you should always become better, but you can't lose that identity, you know, and identity, once again, for those people who paid attention in high school, Identity is dynamic. I can't argue with that. However, there is the core values can't continuously change, specially when you go into those contradictory moments and especially when you define by your you know, situations or like this says. You know, once once we get hopeless and we let circumstances or the people take away our ability to choose, you know, and that's when we become hopeless or just a function of other people's choices or our past, which is interesting when you put it like that, because I think it was I can't remember who it was, but they said you always have ability to choose. You know, that's one thing that no one can ever take away from you. You can choose how you react to things. You could be I think it might have been Theodore Rooseabel who said, you know, we always have our ability to choose. We could be in a war camp. We still have an ability to choose how we react to that. We can smile and sort of speak and whatnot, you know. So that's the first one, so which is really interesting. Once again, kind of, you know, hits a we were talking about. The second one once again from Marcus, a realist, you know, kind of he was a philosopher, a great philosopher. So He's this is what you were talking about in regards to feeling empathy. He's court goes to few. Affection for people, even when they are making even when they make mistakes, is uniquely human. You can do it if you simply recognize that they are human to that they act out of ignorance, against their against their will, that you'll both be dead before long and, above all, that they haven't really hurt you, they haven't demised to you, demise your ability to choose. So they both kind of the same. But what they're saying is, you know, you you can feel affection or, so to speak, empathy for people by just realizing that you us to our humans. And you know, no one really gets up in the morning and tries to hurt other people, although they are some, you know, you know, very evil people out there, but I think most majority of humans are pretty relatively harmless and they don't want to do to harm. I think they just acting out of ignorance. So those things are important to remember when you know you're trying to employ empathy and like goary talks about it. Like you said, modern business right now is in so much need of empathy. So you know, that's the reason why Garry's actually doing so great, because he gets it. He gets it. You know that's right. Yeah, he associates himself with people and he's at a point now where he can, you know, he's he can be his own boss, so he doesn't have to bend the knee to corporation everything else. He can go out and do and say whatever he wants. It just so happens that he's a really good person and what he's trying to do is not just build an empire for himself and his family, but also better other people and bring other people along the way. And money, even though it's a part of the journey, it's not the root of anything he's doing. So, yeah, the Great Bible first, money is the root of all evil. So you'll see that across the board and and and it's various forms of evil as well. And there's various forms of bad people. There's people that are just shitty and there's actually bad people, and it's easy to think that more people are bad than not. Not really like it's a very small percentage of the population that do those monstrous things and most people can just deal the shitty person during the day. And and it's, as he said, it's like two times like these that we're forced to confront we're can't forced to confront our beliefs and kind of nail...

...down what we believe in in the position that we need to be in. And you can really practice a lot of these things as well, the empathy and and it's just the same as getting a routine and doing exercise every day or being in a better state of mind. You can practice just about anything in the more you do it, the more it becomes a fabric in your life, and then your natural reaction to things is to be empathetic and not reactive and not responsive in a way that's like or why did they do that for? Well, Hey, why did they do that for? And then you can kind of change the angle there. And I did philosophy a little bit as well. So I just trying to think who it was. Marcus Aurelius, and it's so he was the he's a Roman emperor and he was a philosopher as well. We are so many personal writings that we studied, I'm sure, and have been studied for history, known as meditations. So it's kind of what? Maybe? Yeah, maybe that's one of the metals. Yeah, so it's really good book. I've highly recommend to people out there as well. So, yeah, I was it was like you said mentioned his name and I'm like, I knew it's down there. It's very funny with doing a podcast, is like anything. You've got to practice the stick and still the Losso no, it's yes, yeah, he's a Roman ramper. Yeah, yeah, and it's one of those things where, like the ability to speak doesn't leave, but your ability to recall specific information and like almost preference, that's something you have to practice. Like you can think about things and you know you're constantly having these conversations throughout the day or if you're having you know, you're doing whatever like you can, you're consuming that type of media. You can do it really easily, but to recall the specifics, it's a lot harder, and that sort I'm noticing even doing this podcast now. It's like that's something we need to keep working on because it comes more natural and everything else. But it's a little side note. But hopefully people can follow along with where we are anyway. But now beautifully put them and didn't I hope we all sort of linked it back together a little bit there for the people out there listening. Just about to hit thirty minutes now. So that's kind of real it back in and draw it back to where we started. So and you can take this, I guess, how the way you want to. You can shift it back to me. It's totally up to you. But you know, you've gone back down to Melbourne, you've gone to see people, you've gone to check out your old family, friends, business everything else, and bang, this thing happens. What was your immediate reaction when you found out? Hey, like, I just walked into a shit store? Well, I thought to myself I was a good good I can deal with the shitty situation a bit later. Soccer Willing. Good. Have you heard that speech? I honestly. Look, my first thought, honestly, was I was like, all, for Fuck's okay, we go again. But my second thoughts, and this is by all this is one hundred percent true. Whether you believe it, believe me or not. That's up to you, but I was thinking to myself. I was like, you know what, this is more time to just kind of easily pack my situation up, like, you know, not rush things through, kind of sort out of fears and you know. So the five days, hopefully, if it's all, it is five days and you know, maybe it maybe half week more. Whatever. It's easy. So at the moment I'm positive, which is fine because kind of gives me a time to pack up and like in the right head space to move. So, which is good. Now it is still Shitty, but whatever. Right. So I'm good. Yes, so technically you don't do yeah, you still were living in Melbourne, even though you spent the last few months in Sydney, you still hadn't you still hadn't fully left Melbourne. So it's kind of like going it's kind of coming back home still a little bit. Right. Yes, that's right. So kind of gives me the head room and it was nice to kind of, you know, have room, especially staying with my parents in Sydney. So, yeah, it was going to it's kind of good to have your own breathing area. So, which is nice. Yes, I don't that man or just not went that under the right. I'm just going to sweep that one under the right for people. Let that one there for to the keeper. That one. Let that would go to the keeper. You know, sometimes you're playing a test match, you got to let you through her. Yeah, we're here for a long time, not a short time. That's right. That's right. All right, so lets talking on, talking about cricket. Let's let's drive one through the covers and,...

...you know, put one to you. How are you going? What's going on? To give us a little bit for a wrap up. Yeah, what you been up to? Yeah, my Stephite, but I've been really good and it's it's pretty crazy how quick the years go. When how quick last year's gone, and it's one of those things. Collectively, we all heard of our parents growing up. was like our time just flies and you were in nappies three months ago. Is like yeah, whatever, old person, go away, like I'm leave me a lot, but at me. Yea. It is so true. You need to experience that in yourself and it's just so many things, particularly with being a parent, now being a dad, but there's just so many things about getting older where you realize how much, how much you emulated off your life of your parents, for sure, but how much like a lot of their little things they would say just were because of the life experience was so true. And Obviously Abi's just turned seven months now on Valentine's Day, and I was having a conversation with someone at work about arts. So cute. I find that new parents talk about the month anniversaries and and I was always the same way. I was like, Oh, what are these people doing four months celebrating two months? It's like what's going on? And it's just, it's the easiest way to put it, is you're celebrating the the most amazing moment in your life. So you're going to want to recall that memory and that feeling as much as you can. And you see them particularly in the first few years. You see him up so quickly that it's just like every month is like this new big adventure. So for anyone out there who sees a post like I did and used to think I want you know four months, what do you celebrate? And Trust me, when you go for it you'll completely understand. So that's been really amazing seeing the way I've had to develop both with my relationship with Charlotte with me as a person and seeing a be developed around me. I've just finished my I was doing anatomy the semester, so I did summer at UNI because I'm studying part times. I'm just trying to get as much in as I can because it's going to be longer than three years, obviously. So just finished a out of me that was really intense, really hectic. It was one of those things where, like I knew I needed to do it, I was put I put it off for about a year or so and then finally got in amongst that got it done. Like learning about the body, the twelve different systems, from the SCALTAL system, most theology, the study of bones, the muscular system, to digestive, to cardiovascular, to lymphatic, to to digestive, I probably said that, to the central nervous system, like just so many amazing things. It's like I still don't fully know, like I know anything, but that's what everyone says collectively. Is like all you've got to do, and I had two exams today, is like all you've got to do is recall what you kind of learn, because you need to get these exams done well, and I I kind of have a goal set for myself where I want to I've had a few really good grades and I want to keep that going. And it's all matched with the effort as well. And this one was really hard, but it was like twelve eight in two years ago, eight in months. Two years ago I wouldn't been able to do this, you know, I just wouldn't been able to focus for long enough. I would have just pulled the the plug early and I was able to get through it without you know, it was hard, it was uncomfortable, but at no point today ever want to quit. So I was really happy with myself there. So I have another example. Wednesday I should get my grades back in a couple of weeks, which I'm really excited about. I should definitely get at least a credit, which is for an anatomy unit. Anyone who's done any sort of health science or any medicine or anything like that, they'll tell you that first year of anatomy is just people just like that was so intense, so I'm really happy with that. I'm going to go basically straight back into first semester in a couple of weeks. That's the only downside about doing summer school is you don't actually get like that time off, but I'm kind of loving it too. And then obviously been having work working at the golf course up and work here at the gym as well. It's been really amazing to get better not just my knowledge of training and my knowledge of the human body, but also of how to teach people and how to run a class and because we do group kickboxing and group strength and conditioning classes at the gym up here. So that's been really great. And from I started that the week before covid and now...

...we had some time off and I went back and I've kind of been doing it every week for like the last eight months and just getting better and better at that. So that's been really cool. And then just getting back into my own personal training as well. I was talking to you about I started retracking my calories again through my fitness power. Really good APP that anyone out there who having who wants to lose weight and are having difficulty with it, they just don't know how much what to eat, how much to eat. It's a really good it's only about fifteen dollars a month for like it is something you have to pay for but we all have Netflix, we will have spotify, we all have these things we pay for and you know, we kind of waste time on. It's an investment. I couldn't highly recommended. There's so many other ones. Like you can go through four or five different platforms that are really good. I just really like this one because I've used it before. I think my fitness bither is probably a world the best one there is. Yeah, you can just your skin if you're eating anything worth package on it. You scan the Barcode to go straight in. It's even hello fresh rite, so I have hello fresh five or six nights a week. They have that all on there. There's got a massive database. It's really quick an easy like. It's pretty accurate as well. It links up with all your devices. So I've got my apple watch that I used to track my workout, so it links that up so I know kind of my calorie amount. I've got that to deal with. It's like a math equation and I'm not going to be on it forever like I was at a point when I lost the weight of originally about twelve eight in months ago. Yeah, it was like the back end of twenty nine where I was really. I really got extreme with it and I was like I wasn't not letting myself eating certain foods and I was being really hard on myself. I over did and that's just the learning experience I'm realizing now, like the relationship that we have, good and bad, with food, like even the word like cheap meals right, like there's no such thing as a cheatmail. You're just eating food that has calories, that has nutrients, that has everything in there. If you, you know, if you restricts all those sort of things to one day a week where you don't even let yourself have it, or you were, you're you're cutting that off so much that that's why people lose weight or they do really well for a few months and then they just charge back in like something happens, little fucking bumping the road of life and then they just get back on. It's because we're like being too controlling with our food. I pretty much still eat whatever I want, I just keep an eye on it, I track it. That's what I think is the best part about the APP. You can know exactly what was in there and you kind of manage it. Okay, I might have a smaller breakfast toward the next few days or just be really good. So that's been really great and it's also learning, you know, it's about learning what's in certain foods and how, how, how much like we actually eat? Like how the reason why obesity has never been as big and I like it's more prevalent now than it's ever been. It's not just the access we have two really bad foods, but it's the quantity in those foods, like how big serving sizes are, the amount of added things in foods that just jack the calories up. And you know, ultimately it's just just one of those things where, once you're aware of it, you kind of realize that it's just like anything. You'd become aware of how that system works and you just you, you educate yourself on it, and that's a beautiful thing about life as well. The more things you learn, like, the better control you get out of it. And Yeah, so that's been really good. Yeah, and just been just been plotting away might if I'm being perfectly honest, like I've just feeling like I'm my maturity is leveling up a fair bit as well. But dealing with plenty of adversity, with raising a child and with these studies and everything else that my life is like. I've been way less emotional. I've not let myself get too high or too low. I'm just trying to learn to understand and regulate those things in just how I had a personality, and I still do, but I used to have a really strong personality where I come out of it gets hot, like I come into social settings, or I'd come I'd come into work like trying to attack the day. All right, let's go, that's pump, it's go, and then I'd have like days I didn't feel like it and I'm just like man, I can't do that. And because I can't do that, I felt like I was failing myself and I'm just like not, just go with how you're feeling. Go with do what you need to do. So be disciplined to do it, but if today's a day you're not feeling the best, it's okay to show up and do your best. And it's all like that. So I'm just trying to...

...work up with those little thoughts bounce around in my head and I feel like I've been a lot more level and everything else. Like most people don't know this about me, but I actually suffer like a lot of social anxiety, like I've always have, like social social who settings are. I've always really struggled with it, but I've been outwardly outward and kind of upbeat about it and people think, ill, he just enjoys that, he's really natural. It's actually really uncomfortable for me and I'm getting to an age now where I'm actually starting to realize that and learn and understand it. And as soon as you recognize it, like explain so many different things, and that's something that's caused a fluctuation in the way I've lived my life are so long that now that I've been made aware of it and then now I understand it, I feel like I'm just it's really good. It's the only way to do it. Is like you're on the highway and you just cruise and you know things coming your way and they don't mean she you just keep going forward, keep the right people in the right things in your life and yeah, things are getting better. So, yeah, it's a bit of a summary. There mate a lot of on back there's so I'm gonna quickly touch on few dollings. First of all, I want to say like I've practically grown up with you, right. So, yeah, I mean, well, that was one thing I didn't want to do coming back. He was to rant. I felt like ranting is tookt it, but it is what it is. That that's kind of I don't think that was a rant. I think that was a yeah, that was a very denice question of it, I did. I feel like it's it's fine, it's so there's a lot to UN back here. But so I just want to say I've known you for all we've basically grown up together, right. So, although, despite the fact that you know, we were what, you know, sixteen or whatever it was, right that it's almost being, you know, that ten year where we've known each other, right, and then these are the real crucial years where you form your personality, because a sixteen year old child is a child, right. That's that's exactly what it is. And I've seen you grown into the person you are today and you know, as a friend, I couldn't be more proud in any by and by all means right, I think you're incredible human, the human you have become. You've become more compassionate. I've seen you become more compassionate more thorough and more deliberate. And the word, the reason I use the word deliberate, very deliberately because often, often, many people live their lives as as an accident. Right, they go, going with the flow. Is Great, but they really just go with the flow. When I say they don't, they don't do things because that's what the that's what needs to be done, they do things because that's what immediate you know. So I think I seen you become that person who is deliberate, thorough, you know, intelligent and compassionate. I think our it's I'm very proud, as proud of you as a human you know, and I'm and all I can see is you just getting better by the day. So congratulations on that. Couldn't be more proud. So and wish everything that. Brother. Ever since you had Abbey as well, I've seen changes in you, even in your language. You swear less, which is which is something so small. But yeah, I don't go on. A church has been a big thing as well, because I realized how much I did it, like subconsciously and in in settings that didn't need didn't need it. Like Hey, I always believe, be a firm believer in a good square where. Don't get me wrong, it has the time in a place as long as the intentions, I think. But I didn't realize how bad it was. A yeah, I think swearing is is a value. terribles language. It's an intelligence man language. Right, it's just fucking horrible. Moult, you what fuck is recreation? But it's yeah, it's great. Second thing. Second thing I was going to say was, and you're absolutely write seeing that, you know, and the other day I just had this realization few days ago when my parents moved to Australia, my mum was there roughly the same age as I am today. Yeah, wow, that hit me and...

I was like, Holy Shit, my mum had three kids at that point and you know she was she's dealing with a new country and like doing all these things and bought a house and all like. So, you know, it's just thinking about that you go holy Shit, like, you know, I haven't had that realization of having a child. So I'm trying to relate that to realizing that how quickly time passes. It doesn't seem that long, but it really has that, you know, it's insane. And so it's a little note there. And now we got regards to the fitness right. So I I resent when I moved back to Sydney and I was training really hard and I still the same thing. I've changed my relationship with food and the reason I've been calling it relationship where I've first, one thing that I have done I've started stopped, stopped romanticizing food. That's one thing that I have stopped doing. Foods grade. I love food, you know, I love tasting new food, but I have stopped roumanticizing it and stop using the words like all, yeah, I want to get ice cream or like, you know, I want that, putting that Romanticism into food of the you know, the modern things that have been driven by, you know, things like or Ben and Jerry's, Netflix and item chills, because I know better than anyone else those are marketing tactics. So trying to stop rumant stop trying to stop romanticizing food as well. However, you know, in the past I dropped down to almost seventy two killers, from eighty four killers, from being max in the peak of lockdown right and down to seventy four killers. It's almost a ten killed down. And then I lot so and then I started training and I started eating, eating normal right, and this is the first time I've been as strong as I was roughly three years ago. So her it's good to have my strength back, like at the moment. I think there's these a hit like, you know, one try and start crossing over to that one hundred sixty dead lived area and then, you know, one hundred and sixty dead leaves, fifty plus chest press, the hundred ten killer yet that. So you know, that was always your natural strength. So yeah, yeah, that's right. Very quickly into training like that was your that was your your bratin pattern, wasn't it? My my my set rice said. Yeah, so my score is back up to like, you know, the hundred, twenty, hundred thirty Kilo plass. So I'm like working back on that strength and if anyone cares about check out my picture of my legs on Instagram at the moment. Yeah, because they look like d maps. But now you know. So I'm getting stronger and that is not me shredding, that's actually me eating normal and almost kind of being in a surplus of calories. But at the moment I can't train, so it is what it is. Now. The last I was trained, baby, that's right, that's right. You're right. I'm going for walks and looking at weights. So that's my philosopher walk here, long philosopher walks, yet within five case. That's right. What was that last thing you said? After in your kind of your rent so or speaking, I'd probably touched on Social Oh yeah, social anxiety. That's how I was going to say. It's always interesting hearing that because growing up with you, I always thought you could like it, like it, and I've known you right and I always thought was like, man, he can talk to anyone. I can't talk to anyone, right, and it's always interesting hearing bad because I'm like, man, I wish you had told me, because we could have hit those all these we should together. Be Like, we could have been miserable together. Yeah, you know. So it's always interesting because I was the same and I think I got really lucky because a I sort of kind of fell into that acting round where, you know, being around very supportive people who made you feel like that you you needed to be heard, right, so, which was nice. So that kind of really help my ability to you know, and I always say the armorth changing someone about. I said one of the greatest one of the things that I'm most proud of in the past five years I've achieved is being having the ability to speak to people and knowing that people care about like feeling like people are listening, and that's a great ability of being able to make things interesting and seeing all those things talking. I mean we have a podcast now. So right it's almost interesting because I took...

...and same thing as you. Took that one thing that I wasn't good at and don't kind of turned it into the thing that I'm that is my most sellable I guess service, if you will, like all my things. You know, I work in marketing, so I have to do pitches all the time, sales pitch and all that stuff. So I talk a lot, which is, surprisingly the one thing that, just like you, I wasn't good at, you know, or I felt like I wasn't good at. So I guess it's a little bit of a the restrictions of limiting beliefs all in your head. That's that's exactly right. So you know, here we are. So it's it's and there's always still a little bit of social anxiety, but starting to you know, as I grow up, I think you care less about what people think as well. So all those things add up to becoming you become a better person. Yeah, most definitely, and it depend. Yeah, I think maybe the shift goes from external to internal. Like when I was younger it was it was more so about the way other people, like your caved a lot about and I still do, but in a healthier way, I believe, at least. I cared so much about what other people for and that's what drove me to you know, that's what drove the the fear of it all and that's what cause that reaction and cause the anxiety of it. was because I was so concerned about what people I wanted people to like me. There's a lot of young people that way. And then as I started to get comfortable in talking, like for me it was radio, I was doing community radio growing up, and I started to get rid of analytical and started to get really critical of the way I thought. So then the way I'm talking became a cause of anxiety. I'm like, all, am I talking well enough to people understand me? So it's just like, it's really interesting how you don't realize how big of an impact these things have on your life until you kind of have Eureka moments, if you will, and you sort of can start to unpack it and, just like anything, once you start to realize the cause of it, you can start to address it and answer and then all of a sudden that actually starts to go away and then our dirty brains go all right, what's the next thing? I can move on to be fucking stressed about. But Hey, that that's also very much a part of life and well, that's what we can learn to harness and use that. Like, for me, I used to really, really bad study and I'm still a pretty shitty study I, but I used to be terrible and my excuse was like I don't want to do it so much. I wouldn't do it and I just sort of wing it. But now I'm learning to channel some of that bloody anxiety into our I'm going to try to learn everything, and hey, like that might not be the most healthiest thing in the world, but it's forced me to sit down and study for these exams and kind of take it and learn as much as I can. So it's all about a juggling act the end of the day. But again, to kind of link it all back, it's that mindset that growth and continue to improve in mindset that you just can continue to unpack and and kind of regress a lot of these things and you constantly are facing these battles, but you're it's think it's like as a young person. You have your ways of dealing with things in that young person mindset. You're almost coming back as a kid and I saw it as an adult and I would imagine that's what a lot of psychologists have to go with when people come in and they talk to him about certain life events or the way they deal with things. They have to almost go back and understand why they react to certain things. Treated as a way. Okay, used to, used to react to this setting as a kid. You now an autot now that's changed the way you think about it. You're trying to you're trying to solve these adult problems with your younger mentality. So that's and that's becomes a little bit of a what you call it, like a something that's like natural. So it's like it's like automated right. So, like you, until you dress these issues or your way of dealing with them, there's an automated response that you would have done when you were younger, like dealing with stress or dealing with being told to do something you didn't want to do, and you're trying to do the same thing as you were younger. So it's just like constantly going back and constantly just trying to work on it and realizing that it's not always going to be your best day, but yeah, it is. It is just beautiful when you can start to kind of have that more of a mindset. So I hope that's something that not and like the old saying, what is it? Perception is reality. Is Crazy, because you make up these realities in your head. But the way other people save you sometimes some important because you realize that how, how you're actually looking on the other end, is sometimes like the gratification to you need to know that you're on the...

...right path. Well, that's exactly right. It's the whole thing that Andrew Food said. Whether you think you can or whether you think you can, you probably right. Yeah, so you need that the true Fab yeah, it's so, you know, it's all perception and they're kind of talking about what you're saying. It's all that you coming from childhood. Sigmund Sigmund Floyd, Sigmund Floyd Simond, Freud or troy, right. So he's a famous philosopher. So he's therapy was this. Yeah, is that fellow? Is the psychologist? Yes, psychod psychologist. Right, he was probably one of the forefathers of psychotherapy, or he was Y. Yeah, so for Fi cercon say, he talks about that a lot of our trauma, trauma is something. Trauma is not often defined well. Right. So trauma, trauma can be two things, right. So it's easy to in fact, I can actually kind of break it down into two aspects of so first way of trauma, of looking at it is one. Often we think trauma is the injury. Right, so traumas injury. Trauma is not necessarily injury. Trauma is a trauma, is is like a scar. Right, trauma is what's left over of that injury, right, mental injury. So it's almost like, you know, whenever you get injured and you have that's what was it called this, the skin that build up residue of the when you recover from that cut, or was whatever it like scar tissues, scar tissue on that right. So that's a bit of a you know, you're at anatomy coming into place. So whenever you have that scar tissue. Right, that's what you refer to as trauma. Trauma is not necessarily the injury by itself, but it's the residue of left of the actual event that that happened. Right. So that event doesn't necessarily have to be bad or good, right, it's just an event. So often, when Simon Floyd talked about it, he said, you know, you go often many of the things actually are related to our childhood trauma, childhood things that served us once. So for example, for example, when we look at you know, one person is very is afraid of speaking. So what was it? The childhood turns, you know, perhaps the parents, whenever he spoke and spoke up, parents just, you know, didn't perhaps didn't listen to him or be just whenever he's the he spoke, they said, hey, play with this or right. They were probably a parents. Right, yeah, not necessarily being mean, even if they rewarded the child for not speaking, right, is still ends up being trauma because now that child's behavior, that conditioning that served him then. Hey said don't speak equals reward, and now your brain is still trying to get that reward twenty years later. Thinking that if you don't speak, you'll get a reward. Versus versus. When you speak you don't. And actually that's actually very good example. So, you know a lot of ethnic parents whenever you take the kids over to you know, I'm sure all parents, but especially ethnic parents, when you take the kids over two families Brough other families house, like kids are under strict restriction not to speak, right, because they know kids are going to say something stupid and you know, I look like an idiot. So that's a small example. That turns later turns into a trauma, right, because kids it's a big, big thing. They culture to its director reflection of the parents, right, like if it's yeah, yeah, that's exactly. And the thing is, the interesting thing is they didn't know this the so they didn't know what they were doing because they weren't. They didn't have this level of and that's the great thing about having all these resources that I'm able to sit here talk about this and have conversation, but they couldn't because they didn't have this access to this level of information. This was only, you know, strictly forbid it for the elite or the psychologist or this all those people who chose to study in such fields. But now, you know, I can study a book, was Sigmund for it, and kind of talk about the ideas and learn from what to implement and what not to and you know. And another one, which is the father of a logo therapy, which is another form of psychotherapy, you know, is done by Victor Frankel when he was he talks about...

...he talks about the fact and it was a concentration camp survivor survival, and he talks about the fact that often so many of the thing we don't really need to be fixed. We just need to realize what our problems are or what our issues are or what you know, we don't really need a medicine, we just need awareness. And these is the thing. And awareness is a gift because if you have awareness, you can even go get help. But if you don't know that the problem is there, it's like you have a broken tap and that's leaking inside the wall. You'll never know because you can't fix the TAP. You just know your house is slow, slowly fading away, but you just don't know why. So you know. So it's having that awareness is a is a gift in itself. But if you can somehow develop that awareness, and it's so hard because you know someone who doesn't have awareness, you will never be able to tell them that this is what your problem is, because they'll never realize. I don't know how you develop that awareness, and perhaps I'll read somewhere I learn about it, but at the moment I don't know how, how, what I can tell someone or what I can tell anyone that will help them develop that level of self awareness and look into why am I not speaking in public? Hey, because if this you know. Yeah, there's a there's another, another really prevalent concept in for psychology called classical conditioning, and essentially it's a situation and it's stimulus combined together. So stimulus happens in the situation, occurs internal, external, and it's a constant revolving door. So I think that's kind of the best thing of education, is identifying what or trying to teach and help someone, is identifying what the cause might be, not being too aggressive and not trying to because at the end of the day, like if you're trying to change the way people think, you're actually trying to restructure their brain and everything else. Like that's one thing. Like going scientific a little bit one people. One thing that people don't realize about actions and about the habits and those sort of things. It's not just something that is, you know, subconscious, like do we do it? Do we not? Your brain, whether it's whether it's stress, wherever these situations what if it causes like you go into these very habitual and routine habits where your brain will release hormones at a certain time of the day and then the cells are affected by those hormones and then your cells actually carry storage, they stall memories. So there's even when that stimulus is not there, your brain so used to doing it that it'll want to do it by itself. So it's just like a when trying to retrain or trying to show someone a different way to think, you have to you have to kind of think about like this is actually something that they're they're from a neuroscientific standpoint. Their nervous system is doing without if in realizing wherever it's eating a certain way or thinking a certain way, reacting that sort of thing. So you've got to kind of like help them identify that and then ultimately, like, you can only ever help people so much. They have to be the one that wants to change and they have to start to implement, change the habits and do everything like that. So, yeah, it's really it's really interesting when you understand how deep a lot of these things go and how it's not just about sometimes, like that strategy of just doing it, getting click get into its started really helps because like a shock to the system, it's like you're reintroducing this this new stimulus, and that can help start things. But ultimately, when you're talking about real fundamental changes, particularly from a neuroscientific level, you're talking about things that maybe have been as it's there were very small child. Yeah, it's like rewid it's just like stripping the engine of a car and replacing a new one in there, and there's all these nerves and everything going off at the same time, like how amazing the body is and how adaptive we are, and but also how how condition, how use the body is, acting a certain way it can, it can really make these sort of things difficult and that's why, you know, that's why people suffer trauma, childhood trauma, for so long, because it's just something they you know, it's very hard to remove the memories of yourselves out of your body, like it is very difficult. The only way to really get through it is to learn to use that and to understand that that experience...

...was put in your life so you would have the strength to do with other experiences other than that. It's just at the time. Yet at the time it was there to help you deal with particular situation. Perhaps it may not help you any longer. Yeah, it's very much a double edged sword. A yeah, that's right. So it's always interesting as well because you can look at a situation that was actually quite helpful at the time. We're for example, school is a great example. School discourages people, kids from talking in classes, right, and so one of the more thing that's always discouraged in and this is because we talked about talking and social anxiety, right. So in school good behavior is a kid who's quite a well bee kid, who's a quite roo kid, right. It's funny because was those kids also don't get awarded for it. They're like all these kids too quiet, but teachers continues to tell you to be quiet, but when you're quiet, this of all this kids shy kid. So it's kind of a double edges. So, like you know, you see the school system right there is, you know, kind of there's no real thought put into what they're saying and what they're using because, once again, you know those teachers, keep in mind, they just finish UNI and most of them are roughly the same ages us, you know, and there's teachers that are twenty two, twenty three year old teachers. What do they know, you know. So it's always interesting see it mad as well. So school, once again plays a big role into what kind of person you end up becoming and what kind of conditioning that you keep for what the years, you know, and it's you car was a good analogy when you look at it like it's. Sometimes even when you replace the whole engine and you realize, you know, you still running, you know dry or you running, you know there's too much fluid because you need to rewhy the Easu as well, because you need to read check the eacuu with or the new engine. And sometimes what you said was true. It can be shocked to the system and all that restart of just going and doing things right. And I think like, for example, me talking, I didn't know that I had a social anxiety issue until until much later into just actually doing it for such a long time. And when I started getting rid of social anxiety, saying thinking, hope, way, hold on, did I have social anxiety? Way, I did. Yeah, so, so sometimes that works as well. It's yeah, it's the like the lack of it not being there. Actually realize how major it impact. It's like an injury or like if you had yeah, if you had some pain, and when it's gone is like wow, that was significant. I got so used to it I didn't realize how how big of an impact of actually was. Well, that's it. Yeah, so I think those are some good areas to look into. Perhaps a little bit of food for for day. That's a little I think that's a lot of food for today. That's that's the name of this episode. How about that? Food for forth thought, food for the thought rebranded for two thousand and twenty one. Yeah. Well, it's actually been a very, very philosophical episode. Yeah, we went take come back here, I said, we came out of the gates.
