And hello everyone. Welcome to the episode number twenty four of the clever dummies podcast. Thank you so much for joining us. I'm lucky and, as always, joined by Nick. How you going today, Guind Sir. Good Ay, as the say in Australia. It's a beautiful band that we get out here. Clear skies and that drive bitch could it's a batsman's dream today back to you. Yeah, yeah, it's a madness made. Please, guys, twenty four. Ricky ponting's just one. The toss in Australia have elected about at the beautiful Brisbane ground. Oh and hate is our langer has been bold early, but that's all right. We've got pumpting in. It's our one h hundred and twenty two. They scared of the air break. Might that was? That was my childhood. I tell you that, much like people talk about patients and everything else. And the game has changed nowadays, but I could dead say and still even to this day, I can sit for every ball of a five day test match, and that Shit was character building. I'll tell you that much. I'll do. You tell you what, there's nothing in the wood that I would rather do, nor I have done for the past five to eight years on boxing day and to watch a boxing their test. I would sit there all day just chill. You know, you kind of have a you know, some food from last night. Just hang out. Yeah, just there's this, no nothing else to do. Everyone loves going boxing their shopping. What do you mean boxing their shopping? You've got the boxing that test on. How can you say shopping? Yes, that's what Eno. Yeah, nowadays you can, I mean shop as well as while watching cricket, but boxing did test. That's my boxing day. Like, yeah, that's a really cool and a. They had to quickly run down of the shops to get some supplies as something. Nowadays, just get that Shit fucking Uber. It's in. That's some and that's the thing to like, you're the Christmas Day is such a good day family friends. It's a big emotional journey. So you're generally tired the next day, like you're in a food coma. Like that food comas real. Nowadays, you might have had a few drinks. Back then, I was just like you've eaten so much lollies and so much crap food that your mum never let see eat. But it's Christmas Day, so if you let see where it is. So the next day you're just recovering like a what have we done? And then you just plut yourself down, you know, get a nice cool can of coke and just let the let the boy. It's normally very hot. Like we've been pretty lucky. It's very hot outside, so it's perfect cricket weather. And what about that side? You know, just going off a little tangent. So many great memories of that great team we had, like the I always leaned back on the ashes series of two thousand and six in Thurs and seven, and we're talking about this before the start of the podcast. We had, you know, arguably ten, nine or ten hall of Famers, like Legit International Cricket Hall of Fames. In the one side you had languor and hated and opening up. You know, Ever Hay didn't was getting off to a quick start, or Lang I was getting clean, bold, all the lay round. FACK. One of them is getting bold. They had some good combos and they had pawning come in. You know, he'd get on that front foot as soon as he'd Middle One, you know. You know it would be a day classic Front Foot Pool. Yeah, yeah, the bull shot the cover drive and just if you can go back today and watch some highlights, there's really nothing just more pleasant to the eye even now to see a nice and he used to just punish the bowlers. He was a short guy. That ball bounces high. He's got at the hook ball of for one slap him through covers like you couldn't beat him. So that's a legend. He always looked like a monk out there as well. He never look he never cracked a smile uses out there. It's like working. He was who the dog. It's like, I'm out of it serious a and and then then he had, you know, you had Martin in behind him or at end up being Michael Clark, who is my clock one Hussy was brought in like Michael Hussey had an amazing career. He met he was thirty one when he made his debut for Australia and he still scored over Fivezero runs for Australia, which is like, you know, a to top percent cricketer of all time and he started on his thirty one, like he sided really late. We had like a rotation of like Simon's Watson later on, but that series of was Simon's Gil Christ. You know, he averaged fifty with the Bat and he was bat number seven. Just shows how good of a damn side we had. Like any other team. He alady met probatting top for you know. And then the bowler is like maybe the greatest attack of all time, Shane Mourn but she turned the ball fifty meters off the deck. Seminary. As wickets, we had Britt later Clark and Gillespie, at Lespie, mcgrad McGrath. That's right. So legitimately nine, ten and hall. The fame is at the same time as so crazy. And keep in mind Shim Watson, good ball. He was good meats, not to mention that Andrew Sam Simon good ball as well. Yeah, and there was a there were a few times that he were. Was His name Clark early? My clock would jump in here. It was actually originally brought in the first match he ever played for Australia. He he, he were. He would came in at number nine. He actually came in as a left arm seeing bowl and he wasn't even he came in for his bowling, not his batting. Pretty Crazy, Steve Smith. As well as leg spin, he's brought in for it. The number nine might have been Steve Smith, but yeah, he was brought in as a bowler because that it was India. His first series was over. Any they needed spinners, and then Watson would have been in that side because he made his debut about a year earlier. And this is the thing that plague Watson even...

...later on in the really great career he had is he had so many damn injuries early on and he's like he made his debut, a couple of games in, he got injured for like a year and he'd come back in for a few games, play well and get injured again. Like for the first ten years of his career he had he was out basically half the time. So he had all that like key ties, which is like your athletic prime, specially for cricket. When he started playing cricket so young, he just had so many injuries that just sort of pushed him back a little bit. But in saying that, he was nearly forty when he retired, so he was able to still get a pretty good thing out his career. But if Watson was healthy, like ts and eights a nine, that transition period after all those guys, like we had like five hall of famers retire at once. He would have just been you know, there wouldn't even been that down period like that's the only thing I think of. Like I was what forty and at the time says a nine, says and ten. Was a tough time to be Australian Cricket Fan. That's my massive particularly in test. Test, wrong, because I don't two thousn't a two thousand and nine. That's when people I want to start stopping in as well, because I remember one a debut on in two thousand and eight. I think again. Some other doesn't end, doesn't yes, so two's and nine. That was a t twenty. But yeah, he's test cricket was two and ten, but it was shortly after that. The crazy thing about Warner's debut is he went straight from playing for news of well, no, he went straight for playing first grade great cricket. Never Played One game for news of Wales Right, and went straight towards Australia. So he went. He went straight from Fairfield, where he played great cricket, into Australian side. Didn't play this so well. I was like, well, I mean you smashed US crazy at that. I'm spent pretty that. I'm all the years he came down, but at that time he was just yeah and he any no matter what you threw at him. You just put another park and people are like and if you remember, that was still the early days of I think t twenty first came out in turn and five or two and six. So that was still trying to get like test players to play t twenty. So the game still hadn't evolved yet. So God like Warner, who would just flock him out of the park. They weren't bowling change up, so they weren't opening with spin like, they weren't doing all the cool things they do now. So they'll just trying to get like a you know, a regular test bowler to try to bowl slow balls and they're just getting punished. So that was like the those are the days for sure, and that's right. And then the game got changed. And then, I mean it's talking about people's bringing down Supreme Ben Talking about someone from my era who's never let go, Chris Gil Right, and I saw him play against he's still playing in ipl right. Yeah, it's not. That's so the guys still ring down supreme. He's every ball out of the bark. Still he talk about a career. How long has he been playingful, he's been playing for his I'm pretty sure he playing is the same team that we're talking about. intest like that those cricket times and he's still yea, yeah, he was like he was a test player. That was like he was still scored really fast, but you knew that he wasn't at his best because he just didn't have the patients to be that consistent. You know, test better, but he still had a great test record. Like, don't get me wrong, he scored a heap of hundred and se scored heaps of runs, but that short form is really where he started to flourish, and that's like the amazing thing. Even for thunder, like a couple of years ago my Cussi was still playing. You know what's it only just retired in the IPL like legitimately, so many of those guys have had like being able to extend their careers just for such a long time due to the game evolving and even being around the sport coaching. When I live back in Sydney, like people always spoke about how tea twenty was going to ruin test cricket and ultimately ruin the sport. It didn't. It just caused the like an evolution period and just like anything, there's like a rubber band effect where at the you know, for a couple of years maybe it changes the way people back but eventually they figure it out and they get better and at the end of the day, like they used to be a lot more draws in test cricket, now there's getting a lot more results. So I find that's at the end of the day, that's better for people because it's kind of people are going to be engaged in it. You know, I think absolutely. I think games more interesting, noseable, but do kill and I don't think the deep down change the game. I think if anything, it was the players that change the game and created the need for d twenty. I mean, yeah, yeah, people like Chris Guild himself and people like, you know, Adam Gil Greece, who who were test cricket players which just too bored with like, you know, just hanging out and, you know, doing those runs. So I think they were, and people like Malinga, who balls such interesting you know. So I think over all those players change the game to create the need to be more short form where it wasn't as restricted. You know. Yeah, and even though I feel like the physical toll that it had on players, like five day test matches, like the body is getting broken down. If you're in the field all day for eight hours and then have to bat all day, like they're just getting injured and they're having more time off with t twenty, like it's a threehour game. You just play. You can play backtoback nights like the IP or they play forty games in sixty days or something like that, like something crazy. So you're able to get more cricket out there and that's what allowed those guys who are a bit older to keep playing because they just weren't...

...needing to, you know, physically have that toll on the body. But, in saying that, like you do see, which is good. You do see the bowlers do really well in test cricket now like this, less batsman are able to stay out there for a longer and, and I mean and even the change of the game, like in the recent series we have against India, traditionally they we would have just scored enough runs in what I think was the second and last test match where India actually survived. No Richard Part who's like a gun player now, like he's a left armor just coming to the team. We were winning by about three hundred runs. We were only like five down and we declared. Right, we easily could it, just batted him out of the game and made a draw. But tim pain to clear that a position. That gave us plenty of chance to get them out. I was like a hundred overs, but it also gave them a chance to win the game if they if they battered long enough and they end up winning the game. But no one was upset at them for declaring. was just like fuck it. We tried to win, you know, we tried to get the job done instead of just, you know, batting him into a blivion and, you know, setting five, I'd runs and fifty overs to do it like it just doesn't it doesn't work. You know so well, this heaps more, heaps more that the guy. I feel like the Games just the best that ever is now, you know, even other all kind of sex and of this. I think that's much more interesting then that. Yeah, just trying to bat them up like, you know, like the absolutely. I think it's much more interesting and to be fair, India's team has evolved as well, funny enough to we're talking about that quickly, just quickly on touching on that as well. At the time when we had all the way Adjustin Angel Matthew Hayd and Adam Gil griss market clock and all those players, India. India had some of the whole Famer Hall of Famers as well, like you had, yeah, such a joker, and they capitals, goalie and AMAS journey was the wiki keep, but he wasn't the captain, but he was. It was. He was abus likesman. Yeah, he's all that's who has run or drivered Ralli driver. And then they had that bowler who was a buller, that exact so popular woman. So you're not think I harbor John Seeing. I was that. He's that. Yeah, because you might be thinking of me Lutheran my time or Lutheran. He's a guy that bowled the suspect action and he got in trouble a few times for not having none of the dog. Do you think he was must making them days? They that was the thing withindi. They had a great batting attack, but they didn't have the bowlers like they had, like harbor John Seeing. They've had a few other guys from that time that would decent bowlers, but they didn't have enough to compete with us. So anywhere they do really well because this spin now they're starting to which is changed the completely. Maybe quickly Google, because I feel like more of the friend's Trolankin and he he actually holds the record for the most wickets in test matches, like he beat out Shane warn. Both the spinners had it. But I'm trying to think of some classic names, like there's definitely some things. There's a there's a in rat, another one as all. Who did you have? He had Gangoli, had vvous laxman, he had ral drivered. You had obviously such a new joker, was such a special player to watch. Emiston't he was only really young. He's even another guy as well. He only just retired, like he played for twenty one years at the highest level. And harber John Sin was. He was a spin bowler, leg spinner, I think he was a yeah, I mean thing. Yeah, a new com boat came bill and I'Mal Komberly. Yeah, yeah, it was another one, but he was a bit before the other time, like he was be yeah, he's early steps will we yeah, he was. He was like stave all days. Yeah, that's right. Yeah, so he was. I mean he's also retiring. Oh Ed, but he wasn't good as her bridget seeing. Yes, what I was thinking of. Yeah, I just looked up, you know, top top spin bowlers, of top ten spin bowlers of all time. Yeah, yeah, were the throne. Shane Morn Nice. Yeah, yeah, right at the top. My friend what I can't pronounce his last name, Shad and Neil Cut kubble from blay. Yeah, come let yeah, killed the stock. He was the Pakistani Dar cricketer here. Yeah, Daniel Vertie, he's inventory easy landor yeah, who else is a good? He was around that here as well. Shade Freddy, of course. Yeah, before he's the lateness of his career was about his batting, but he was a gun last spinner for a long time. Was a yeah, I mean he's batting. He was a he was a what you call it? What is a one hit wonder? But you know, yeah, following around them would yeah, he's well, I can't do watch slower. Who else is on that list? If you got to huber chance seeing followed by Abdul Kad know, we going old yeah, yeah, couple of Pakistan in there. Then we go, Oh Swan. What's his name? That guy, Grahame Swan, friend England. Yeah, yeah, here's another good classic. Yeah, I was as plenty of trouble in the ashes. Honorable Mentions. That's it. Yes, and it's hard.

It's hard being a leg spinner. Like if you looked at the pace bowling this they'd like you could find a hundred and fifty. You know, the longevity of pace bowlers is there. They generally have, you know, more pace bowlers. That's why, you know, there's less competition for it. Yeah, like you're really competing for one or two spots in most teams, just spinnings. But Um, it's hard to be a good legs were or a good off spin I like we had stuart mcgil as well around the same time. Of Warning. Did he just see? He got it a bit of strife with he got kidnapped. So it's Stewart mcguiliy's girlfriends. Yeah, got a trouble. So, yeah, I've but one of the guys that the Jim told me about American spiously going on with some famous athletes and a drug drug ring. But I'm not so sure about that. But yeah, he and I'm getting done for about four days. They pulled up an a V and it just took him in there and said might you might be of one of our greatest ever legs, but is, but you're get this very all right, here we go, St don't Mc Guil cameras the full time, by by their numbers. Yeah, so, not by popular just by the numbers itself. So extasy. Yes, that's Sydney Burns. He was an old player from nineteen, maybe in the one thus nineteen hundred ninety or one to nineteen forty. Yeah, well, and obviously how many weeks that you get? It's serious. He got is I do up by wickets or by something else? It's average of sixteen point three. So don't want to total of seven hundred, seven hundred nineteen wickets. Wow, I've never even heard of him at when. Obviously is old but normally insure. Yeah, wow, that's crazy, Bro Sixteen and seven hundred wickets. But yeah, what's his name? and His name is Sydney bodies, Sydney milish, Yea England like a yeah, Fred Truman, England, English to truly. He took his first we get a thirteen years old, three hundred seven wickets as much of all the people would die. Those people playing in the side. They had one leg left over from Ballard stuff s. There was a young Jorge Gilt she just carve it up. We'll see mcrum back anny blue and help. Yeah, of course Finnon, five hundred two wickets, left arm swing bowler. That's as I'll be there. You Got Daniel, Dan Dennis Le later was his name? Denny's end as silly. Yeah, it's Lily. Was it ever? The classes Boller now, Jeff Thompson, Janni Cilly was quick. There was another guy, Nam Jeff Thompson, who bowled around the same time as him. Didn't get him at as many wickets, but he was meant to. They reckon he bold. The quickest ball was ever, but they didn't record the speeds back then. I was like seven's and suns. That's another one, marsh from our West indies, and he's yet cla try actor on their Clema Graham. Sure I think show after was quick, but was his stats were in great yeah, okay, what's the day of stains? Probably on their first South Africa. Who's the other English guy? Hakistan again James, Jimmy Anderson James, and this will stay in this she did saying he's a he's a scary motherfucker. For a long time, for ten years, he haunted the Ozies, he haunted the wood. He's easy eyes, he's crazy, super and he had mcar and teeny with him as well, and they had more name, more call. They had to day. South Africa had, like were the sit a better side than us, and they just had two mad bad as. They had Graham Smith or Graham Smith at the top. Had that Indian fellow who came over. He was good. Played for Soever we go. What was his name? Forging? Here we go, top ten, Australian, one day international batsman's body. I yea time. Your ranked by all, ranked by stats at coming in at number ten. They would warner number nine. Met Matthew. Hey didn't. Oh Damn that dudes all now is looking old. Who Matthew heard it? Oh yeah, buddy, he loves a skin. I that you are a number coming in. Number Eight, Andrew Simons, number seven. Michael Bovan, how come? I know we saw him play. Where was he playing? He played like lates, early two thousand. Michael Bevan.

Number four, Adam Gilchrist. Yeah, number three, Dean Jones, AH, it's doesn't s yeah, Greg Chapel was. Can't forgetting levels. Yeah, popular. I know. I'm from stick cricket to be honest. Yeah, that's right. I'll Japan secret for number one, at Ricky ponting Rapana. Yeah, it's amazing. They had that and eve back in them days. They weren't playing nearly as many short form games as they do now, like they play so much t tony and short and Modio eyes now. Back then it was like you'd have your World Cup every four...

...years and they'd play like two series a year. So yeah, did when. You'd probably see this more games on Warner potentially than some of those other guys. Yeah, top ten, I see see dot number one. I SEC Crooker, I see see Bowler Glenn macaw of all time. Yeah, no one see Polo just because of both formats. Like one day a test match, even merleither and and those other guys like I don't know. ACROAM was pretty good in both flo this is World Cup, so number one I sec World Cup number one is Glen Maccarth full by. Yeah, Andy Bleach, also Australian, cool and Dificul. Sorry, that was sound test free. Yeah, tims a, the always this old time World Cup. You're all time would yeah, and it was seema comes up here as well. But yeah, it's been done. The Little Weld cohops. Not As many games. You know that. Don't play it to any morning, which is stark number ten. MMM, yeah, still doing another thing. Still got plenty of years out on to it there. Game Might Nice little tripper. Cricket Twenty One, Ricond Land. Everyone that's still with us. We really appreciate it. Now it's all good. You can skip ahead if you need to, but fuck it. Yeah, you love it. It's all good. But do you want just a quick little plan right this box this year boxing day? If you're I presume you're probably going to come down to towards Sydney, but if you're not, I'll come up for boxing down or what's the game together? Or we could just go to Melbourne and watch it live for five days. That's actually not a bad idea. Five days lit relax, maybe a couple. I've never, I've never seen a game at cricket down there. I feel like it'LD be pretty awesome. Wasn't played by hand. Will definitely get together for it anyway. To be concerned, the date to TVs ocation. Look at he saved him, Bro MCG Ninetyzero people. You know, hopefully no mass you know, no fucking no bloody mark of the base of vaccine. Let's go, baby. They's no micro chips. Make that no microchips. Funny enough. Like that's drag right into the you know, the Gold Cord Nineteen, because you know, perfect timing. First of all, thoughts are to India, man. That's crazy, insane. Four hundredzero cases forzero people in a day, in a formul thousand cases in a day, four hundred thousand and four thousand people dying in a single day. That's just I was last laughing out of beer shop, not actually happy. Yeah, for sure. It's just absolutely insane. You are so and you know. Let's quickly compare. Compare India to Australia in I mean, we probably shouldn't because happylation is yeah, population wise, they're completely different past ride, by the way, out now would be over twenty five, would me. I think we still had twenty two, twenty three, all Australi. Yeah, plant is, there's there's high schools that have less, less, more paper than that in India. Oh Yeah, we're twenty five. MM, twenty five, yeah, never doubt me, mate hummed them from the champ. Let's look at India's population. One. Yeah, China still got the mice right, like one point, one point one's Indias in those men? MMM Really? Oh, no, you, I'm wrong. That's right. That's it, but it's a decision, right, we don't have to diver. So they probably got a few less paper now, if you know what I mean. Okay, so you go. It's to see India at one point three six billion in China at one point three nine billion. So they're close, super close, super close. China was China's growth rate slowed down around two thousand and ten and India's accelerated. They both even doubt now. Yeah, the one a policy. Yeah, in them in China. That's what absolutely confirms to me, and we all kind of know it. But the numbers that had always come out of time or about the death rate and about the VACS, about the the right of people getting getting affected. As always been so wrong, like they've always had just such low numbers, like lower than lower than a country like like Canada, for example, who has, you know, seventy eighty me and like they're saying the numbers of that low, like one point three billion people. Keep in mind the countries like Canada have crup really crupt governments as well, and stuff like that, which I've actually recently been learning, because there's one thing this covid nineteen thing has done right. It gave us a chance to look into other people's systems and be actually patent to the like news, what's going on, not news, but like just overpaid and see what's going on. Yeah, so I mean like world politics. I yeah, word politics. Canada is another country that's got really corupt government system. So they've been their policies and procedures...

...are non existent. They've, I think you know how these countries that survived and did. Everyone just thought they are good country. I always thought Canada was a great yeah, but turns out it was only because there was about total likes, you know, seven million people, not at Lea, but the point is that, like in Canada's pretty high. Canada just went Super Melbourne. Ever, it the whole country was like like Victoria for the whole year, like they just locked everything down. You're not what I mean. Yeah, where other countries or other states in the US, for example, didn't do so much. And but it's interesting that the just the various rates, like obviously in La and New York, who have, you know, been hit the hardest in the US, like they have a really bad homeless population, particularly in La, and they have just people living so closely give it because there's just so many people in there's just not a lot of space. So that's what's know, that's been the worst thing for it. Then just, you know, who stayed indoors and obviously restricting certain amounts were beneficial, but it was ultimately like it almost didn't matter what we did. You know, if you live in a place like La that has the same population as, you know, half of Australia and your the size of Sydney, like you know, you people are going to get fucked up because there's nowhere to go. So I think, yeah, it's just been so much blamed shifted everywhere, and this is where we're so, you know, so thankful and the lust and a Laura of the US has definitely dropped and people were blaming it on the on trump for for a long time, but it had nothing to do with him. It was it's the way that a lot of this stuff's been handled. I feel like people are less, you know, there's holy wood and all that sort of thing and as it starts open back up, like it's going to get it back, but I feel like America is lost us a lot of that. What's the word's not that's like honeymoon asque like that. So frier about the place, very much, very much America's PR right. America was US, was really smart and use their Hollywood industry, the film industry, as their PR agency almost totally, I be, our agency. So that did a really good job as setting America up as as this country and and America. If you ever think about the kind of country, and this is something that I was listening to Sam Harris, if you listen to him, he talks about this and a couple of other people talk about this as well. People countries that are really good at telling stories are tend to be the countries a they impress other populations and be the developed, very nationalistic society in within the country. For example, take India for example, right, Bollywood is huge. Right, it's huge and they're really good at telling their stories. So Indian people are really nationalistic. So they're very, you know, patriarchal to their own country, right, so to speak, and it helps build. So what you're kind of saying is that help, if you know, it helps build the lower to other countries. It creates a sense of pride within the country as well. Right. So yeah, yeah, that's so. That's very good point actually. Yeah, about the US, they love you know, they love themselves really that's kind of yeah, that's a really good point. So, so the US overall, when you start looking into it, is is a house of God's right. So when you got no no backborn to support their medicares, medical system, there's no you know, a lot of their things are so privatized. I mean Australia started to become like that are certain extent, but you know, we we're way Lyne Way mugemas places. Yeah, Australia is good all take yeah, I'll take slow Internet over a lot of the other shit we could have. You know, that's exactly right. I mean Australia. All touch on Australist problems that I was kind of thinking about, but you know, so I think that's what us did really well. Same thing with same thing with India. They do that really well. So they build a society that's very, you know, nationalistic, like care about there and think about their own country and were willing to die for where countries like Australia we're not very we're not big on telling stories for some reason. Same thing with same thing with Pakistan. We've got almost no stories, no film industry, no music. So it's you know, India's got music about just, you know, literally people singing about their love for the country. People listen to that. That people connect young population. That's how you know younger younger generation. That's how they connect with the country. They're not going to sit there and listen to the politics. So I think that's what's interesting about those countries. They have a really good marketing wings, if you will. You know where in just comparison, you got country like a China. Right, same thing this. They in sort of creating stories that do inspire people. They just controlling the narrative. So the only think people here is, Hey, this is the greatest government of all time. So I think those things are comparison, but seen interesting. So that's why I think United States had always had that law, because even in Australia we grew up watching films off coming of age films and TV shows that had were highly influential on us, but...

...they were coming straight from the US. So we can completely relate. That's why, if you haven't noticed, whenever there's a new United American food chain comes from Australia, there's lines outside, because we've seen that in films and movies and now we finally see it, you know, for our own eye. So we just want to see what the fuss is about, I guess. So that's what's interesting because, yeah, Amazon Uber, you look at an apple, which is an international company but American based. Yeah, and I feel like the military place a part of that too, and as time goes on that starts to wear away as well. But there's a you know, over five hundred thousand odd active members of the US military that are currently working outside of the state. So they have a large population that are very prideful of the military and pretty very pride to be a part of that. So it's just like they've done a lot of good to help build their own sense of and they are also pretty selflike. There's they feel all they have a perception that the self to spare the Pacific. Where we're in Australia have a pretty good understanding about you know how you know, we have, I guess, more of a more of an integrated society outside of Australia, or we have an acceptance of it. Anyway, we're where it's Saem. It seems, and this is only perspection perception, and I might be completely wrong, but it seems like the US feel like they're they're isolated, like they kind of exist outside of the world in some regards. or it's the US and there's everything else. Well, I think the US thinks they are. The word. Yeah, that's why it's I think about all the superhero movies people are just starting to save America when the turn say the word, when they're trying to save the right and you know that makes sense. It's the Hollywood, so they're going to do a large portion of the of their money is based off of that sort of thing. In there. I guess the mode of why something exist like that can be explained through different avenues like pr and that sort of thing, but at the end of the day, like it comes down to what people how people speed save the country as well. Like don't get me wrong, I still want to go there and I'd love to experience the culture and all different aspects of the US, but I feel like less there's I'm less inclined now to have. I don't have as much as I or mine's eye not as strong as it used to be hundred percent, and that's just what my own maturity probably is, well, a little bit more of a understanding of how the world actually works. It's crazy because I was literally saying the same thing to that someone the other day. I was like, you know, you wanted to go to La and us all those stuff, but now I have very little desire. I would much rather live in Australia, which is into. I mean I would still want to live in us for one particular reason, which is the size of its population where, but then also being a Western speaking, you know, Western country where the speak English and I can understand them in the culturally similar drop mine, I wouldn't. I would England, not so much England is would be the second choice, but the only thing is England's it's a smaller country and it's everything seems just to can just it. You know where America has been an US right, you can have a have a variete yet outside. Yeah, yeah, yeah, you can go to the big cities, but also outside of the big cities where England. Yeah, you know your I don't think I'd go there, but I don't know how long I'd want to spend their sort of thing and it's a probably the same of the US. I don't know how long I'd want to spend in a major city. But you can go to places like Austin or Tennessee or even parts of Florida that you can get outside of the city and be you know, even even not New York itself, but you can go to Boston, you can go to other parts of the country on that northeast coast, the really popular but aren't quite you know, New York City. But in saying that, like he'd love to just spend an in the you know, in the thick of the city and just that. So the magnager, just the aura and energy of what that would be like. It like I think, a head to one on earth. Right. Well, that's exactly right. I mean, see, you've got to look at Australia, right, you look at for so you look at Australia the way Australia is. We got metal of twenty five million people, which is twenty five million people, and we're nice this spread out as well, but it just doesn't feel, you know, given that Sydney city is, that meant to be wanted, like one of the most incredible cities in the world, right, because it meant to be up there with Sydney city right right, right across the world with one of the best cities. But it just doesn't, you know, because they aren't that many people, even though it seems like they may be a lot. Just simply not now people to make the VIBE, because I feel like Sydney city itself is not a capacity yet because it needs way more people to make all those things at work that are there, which is a great part about it. Yeah, now I under percent the crazy part about it. You can get very much stuck in certain areas and they feel like it's it is chaotic. It definitely is chaotic, but compared to what, how? Where it's headed probably in our lifetime, like in a couple of decades, and where it's how much potential area is st there to feel like there's still plenty to go al.

There so much. Yeah, and and coming from coming from Melbourne, right, and I realize what the difference between Melbourne Sydney was. Right, Melbourne was very much confined to Melbourne itself like a city, where Sydney's bit more spread out, as in, like you know, people a lot more, bigger population. USPROT spread out in little they click in the areas, like spread out in little rings. So further way you get you still got population that lives in Sydney, where Melbourne population is predominantly in Melbourne. When I say Melbourne, you know in the steering suburbs of the city itself, CBD itself. So Melbourne does can carry that a lot more, that vibe of being busy. Where Sydney, because it's so spread out, it's not there yet. So I think, you know, when you start feeling out those suburbs between you know, but out as you go out and to the city, I think you'll start having that vibe created as well. I don't know. That's just a perhaps like what you said. I could be completely wrong, but that's my perception, I believe. I don't know. I think the amount of cars and the amount of roads, most of the space is taken up with roads and less parks and open areas. Like how much more can you really do before you just eventually kill kill it in air? There's like a point point of diminishing return, I think. I think Sydney, Sydney can't support its yeah, it has a dying road system because I think they for some reason they have shit the bed with that, with their roads. That's yeah, that's nice. Also, the cost of living in the cost of running business there as well, like renket, in different areas, if you owned a shop or if you own some space, it's just so ridiculously high and the cost of living is so high that and it's just not enough money at the moment. Doesn't seem to way, I think. Well, that's true and I was actually going to touch on that as well. Brilliant segue into that, right. It's a Sydney is super expensive, right. I mean, so Sydney got rated as number one, the most expensive city with the tools in the world. So it's got the most highest amount of tools in the world. I think Sydney offisher are. So, I mean that's crazy. Right along told you got tolls, patrol every living course. Houses are you know, there's a house in Plampton. You know it's a free out there area, not near nowhere near the city. What point three million. It's a four bedroom normal house. So it's so Sydney's insane, like overall even greater sydneys and saying to how expensive it is. But I wonder, I just wonder, is that gonna that expect how expensive it is. I mean it's more the Way Sydney is going. It's more expensive than I'll like. It's the same part with London and New York. That's how expensive it is. But it's nowhere near as busy. You know. I mean there's nowhere near as bustling as those cities. Because, let's say, if you're a small business owner right, you've got, you know what, maybe you know five or six million people to play with to run those business or maybe you know one billion people that run through Sydney city itself. But then where New York? WHO's the same price at that that you bring the road so similar rent you've got you know, ten million people to play with or twenty million people to play with? Yeah, I wonder if you increase the numbers of pollution? A. Yeah, could it do it? Yeah, if you as long as people willing and able, and it just depends, as long as there's enough jobs and businesses in that mediate area. Like most people live outside of the city and going there for work. It's not the other around, like plenty of people do the opposite. So we just you need the businesses to be there in order. That's that's actually a really good point. A. Yeah, and I also think that the quality of you know, again, this is not first and experiences, only second and experience, but the quality of the public transport system in the in New York, in those other countries compared to Sydney. That's another area that we really lap as well. Is People. You a lot of people feel like they have to drive because it's such an inconvenience to get a train or a bus. Where in we're in New York, for example, or in La like the public system is pretty good, like, especially in New York, like everyone takes the train because it's just like you don't drive, like everyone takes a subway. Were over here, like there's only one a couple of main lines is not nearly enough of that as well. And I think if the public transport system was done better, you more people would be willing to live closer and would be able to live closer as well, a hundred percent. I mean, I mean that's that's a very good point and I think that's also some of it could be as could also be sold by like a strategic cluster design. Yeah, start putting in the subway system in New York was built predominantly underground as well, you know. Yeah, mean like we're over here, we don't have a lot of no ground. So that's another thing. Like, for example, I work in civil water ride which is about, yeah, thirty kilometers towards the city when I be out from where I live right, but there's no actual train stop in the area that I work in. So and it's busy. It's a lot of time and civil water actually I've never gone past yeah, so I mean I couldn't, I couldn't actually take the train do civil water. Yeah, another close by station, but it seems still seems like I have to get a train there...

...and then catch a bus to where I want to get. Yeah, yeah, that's that's that's just annoying. where. Yeah, we're my open does that really well? Right, because something about buses just turns people off, because I know it turns me off right. I just don't like the look of a bus. I'd got a tram over a bus any of the week. Yeah, but it's just something about a bus. Yeah, I think there's just poor funding. Poor funding, so the buses aren't maintained as well as they could. So you feel like you're getting on like a shitty old thing. If there was more money. I'm just looking up so water because I am not right near Rud ory. So it's just near paramount. I thought it was a little bit more self. I thought it was more like banks towny way. It's still pretty close, but I thought it is. So it's right in there. Like, yeah, it's about social time matter. Yeah, yeah, N Corn Corde. Okay, yeah, it's a little bit of a weird spot at there's a bit of a gap there. It is in the Olympic Park. Yep, yeah, it's a bit of it. You know what doesn't have to be that hard for you. Yeah, that's exactly. I mean. That's what I just drive. But interesting thought. Talking about funding. Right, New South wills realize they have a funding problem, right, because they keep on doing stupid things like ripping out the tram lights about ten years ago and putting it back in. I can't you begin to talk about that. Right, realize they have doing stupid shit to cover up their mistakes. They just keep on charging their own populace, like you know, they keep on. It's like tools to charging, you know, shitdown tools. They've introduced countless funds that are just stupid. Like, for example, I got fine last night, right. I was telling you about this befo. I got a six hundred. All fine last night. For get this. Having a Victorian plate driving in Sydney with because I have a Victorian Plate car which is still registered. But apparently because I intend to move to New South Wales, my car becomes unregistered in New South wals because I intend to move to need south else it's the first question is, but how do you know I intend to move? Is that what you said it? I mean, sure, I said it, but what about I'm gonna go to Melbourne tomorrow? You know? So it's I just thought that was a complete definitely, yeah, you know, the intent if we had a known that. Yeah, yeah, I like, well, no, I just I'm just here to visiting. Nothing happens, but because I intend to move, you know. So it's course, it's your car is probably guarante and new suth well, you're going to get charged for not paying the tax of New South Wals road. What the fuck is you pulled out? You pulled out a two point two billion dollar tramline only to put it back in. WHO's going? Can we talk about that mistake, you know. But so it's interesting. How unfair? Yeah, unfair. And your car was still registered in recast original Victoria and yeah, yeah, my car Regel runs out, like it's still go registered. So I don't I'm probably gonna have to reregister. When Raggio I came out a that's what you're waiting for. was like, yeah, I literally had another week that ratial left. I was like, I'll get a register soon as it runs out because I don't want to double life. Yeah, that need. But all there is an aid, I guess. But how insane is that? Like literally say you're paying like to Ragis now because they yeah, yeah, but it's insane because if I had done that anyway. So I would have paid a registration for Victoria and for new southles, because new southles doesn't transfer the registration, where Victoria transfers the registration. Yeah, keep the registration in that. Yeah. So in the South Wales they canceled registration. You start new. So, yeah, they're really say yeah, yeah. So I was like, so, a couple of things like that. I was like, Victoria is a much nicer state as how they treat their population, where Nie South Wales is much more aggressive. They don't seem to care too much about their compilation. Yeah, they hit their keepy eyes, I guess. Yeah, that's right. There more business they need. Yeah, they've got more aggressive laws to make money. Yeah, it's a bit tricky and that that that sort of thing turns you know, just turns people off once people to move. So that yeah, that's that's an unfortunate better luck, myte but it's a less alone. Anyway, next time, if it ever happens again, next I let me a visit and my telenbody you want. I'll tell you what. The next time if I moved to another state and come back to the South Wales, that's probably my number one mistake. Yeah, yeah, you'll forget again. Fuck, I did it shit, so glad it's better you clean if you listen to this podcast, which I'm really cool. Quite sure she's not. So I'm just gonna say put this out there. I don't know. Together. Yeah, get your shit together. seriously. That's got has it been anyway the last couple of weeks? My what's what's the I haven't stayed too closely to what's been going on. What's the what's the changes they brought in over the last week? What what level of restriction do they go to? I, from my remember, the restrictions were meant to come down to today. But yeah, the restrictions were another way to it. Or did it ffs, because they still can't find this random person. One...

...person is this? This guy, right a fuck it hell, this guy. This guy was so desperate to buy a new barbecue. But let's be honest, little bit respect, because that's the Australia where it was so desperate to get a new barbecue that he went all around all the fuck it'Sidney. Use hundred percent. He was getting one of those really, you know, those are barbecue beast masters. Six thousand. Yeah, it's about that that's a dream, Monday hundred even. That's the attitude like that. They want us to be upset at the people, the persons that've done it, not actually upset at the people that are implementing their silly rules. Yeah, you know, it's like all, blame this one person, you have to do this. It's like, N it's it's you know, then enough people are following along with it. Now that it though, it's working anyway. Well, yes, goodness, they need they need to blame someone, you know. Yeah, they also need a they also need a show that they're doing enough, to be proactive so that when the next election comes they can get the job done in that well, that's effectly right. Come there's more more than enough. There's more than enough evidence across the world that these aggressive lockdown to not just not necessary, but it actually not the most effective way to you know, think about shutting down a sixty kilometer radius because of a single person like or if you go sixty hundreds of kilometers or radius because of a single person like, think about part all our parts of the world that are you know, have maybe they were doing that a year ago when they fought like this thing was going to be worse than it was and they still doing the same shit. They can call that like you know, they're trying to look like we're trying to do the right thing, to be proactive, but they're just being they're just yeah, they're just being overly over the aggressive with the authority they have, you know, the implementing fines and these sort of things just keep people away from doing it in businesses, from not enforcing these rules. So it's pretty it's a little bit it's a little bit disheartening, if, if I have to be perfectly honest, it just disheartening that it's as happens and people don't aren't aren't getting upset about but I guess if you do it for long enough then people just submit. That's a strategy to sell. That's the fact that that's true. That's true. Hard they keep doing other people just like. I guess it is what it is, Huh. Yeah, and most people you talk to have the same opinion. So it's not that people are I've done not that many people just starting to fold over. But you know, when it comes people live busy enough lives and priorities are in different areas. But yeah, I feel I feel good about. Like I used to be a little bit torn up about feeling a certain ways and I just go whatever, but now I feel pretty good about being passionate about certain things, and this will always be one of them. Like any sort of if I ever see, I remember being a little kid, if I ever saw any any form of injustice, it didn't matter what it was, even if I was watching a Shitty TV show and someone got in justly, traded like. It rave me up. So I didn't give a fuck up. Glad up this way. So take it a leaving baby, take it all, leave it. Oh, I agree. I agree, and I think that's the way to be. That's how you should be. Yeah, it's just, you know, there's something about that, just getting fired up about, you know, the wrongness of what how people treat each other, even if you know, even if you just saying words and nothing gets led to it, I feel like it's, you know, it's better than then just submitting to it, you know what I mean? At least we're talking about it versus what everyone else is doing, which is, you know, not even talking about it. So which is which is interesting. But yeah, it's it's pretty insane that the you know, in God even word health government said lockdowns is not the most appropriate way to attack these situations. Yeah, but you know, I guess especially with, yeah, this, this many of it happening. Yeah, like it's just so it's very strange. It's very strange some of the things that the US governor done. They, you know, cheeped out on the vaccine and they didn't even get the right one. And then, if they didn't get the wrong way, they didn't pay enough. Buddy, they can't get the wrong one and they still can't get enough supply of it. They paid fuck all money. They got the Rock Wad. They did get enough. Like what is it killing us? US government now, this is us, Bro this is the astral ENNICA. We the US, even though their cases are really bad. Obviously their population there, they've got over a hundred me and people that are vaccinated the moment. You, Australia have nothing. Austray have a hundred thousand, like a couple hundred thousand people, like they've just they've shit the beds so bad, like there's you know, they've just gotten lucky that we you know, Australia didn't get hit too bad like they say. You know, this. It's not. It's not really. It's just it didn't work for our population because we're spread out enough. That's all it is. It's not that they were good in anything like that's what I keep hearing. The you know, the US car the straining garment should be commended for their you know, for their handling of the virus. That's like, no, we're just lucky that we're fucking you know, got twenty five me and people in the US have three hundred me and we got the same amount of space. You know. Well, that's exactly right. We was there. Someone was saying, and I don't know if this is correct, right. I don't know if this is correct because I heard it from not a not a great source rights.

I'm not. And also, less people are traveling to Australia just because it's such a long flight from so many other countries as well. You know, I mean because international a couple of that. Yeah, no, but even before our flight being came up. Yeah, if that makes sense, whereas like La has, you know, La gets more people. La Fx, like the airport itself, gets more people than Australia does in the whole country. And just one airport in the US in on. I mean so I think that probably play the parliment as well. That's exact about and then you've got so someone was talking about it. Someone was talking about the vaccine, right, and I'm for vaccines, right, but it would I thought it was interesting. I they were talking about overall and this is not from a reliable source. So if this is wrong, you know, I'm just saying. This is just the funny thing that I'm throwing out there, because this is this is not factual information, but it's good food for thought. They're saying the on average, the mortality rate for Covid nineteen was around one point two, one one percent or something like that. And the Motala forests Antico vaccine, was there one around. What do you want to die with? The vaccine? Yeah, what are you gonna die with? The vaccine or the wars? You choose. You want the blood clots, you want to blood coughts, or you want the Y, you want two coughs. Shit, choose are you going to die? So so funny. That's that's pretty so funny. So it seems like regular society. You know, you're not going to need the vaccine, but I do believe that for international trouble it's going to be like a passport thing, where you're going to need to have it. What they're doing, obviously not in Australia because no one's fucking find anyway, but what they do in the US at the moment is you need to have had a negative test within the last three days. So when you get on the airport, when you get on the plane, you need to show your passport or this sort of thing, and then you need to show negative test. I feel like it'll either be that or it'll just even have to be like a vaccine stamp, like they give you. Know, they give you the you get some sort of emblem on your pass what saying you've been vaccinated. That even one of those two things will happen. It'll be interesting or it just or they just scan your microchip or digital well, that's right. Yet I did. So it's probably not the pass but it'll be on your phone all that. Yeah, they scanned the market tripped it of him playing it with the vaccine. That simple. You just say my favorite one day. Yeah, Shit, it's like your PA. They might as will use it properly, but no, you have government that that microt chips all but then forget to implement the software for it or get it get us, get us all hacked by some kid in India again. Yeah, you know now that won't put it deep enough in the body and it'll just would just pass it. It'll just fall down our arms and petally just have fucking Marcrot ships hanging out there, not sex and stuff, because the it just got and they you know, I think about like the the muscle tissue, the skin teachue. I haven't put it deep enough, so just move it around everywhere. You can't find it. Where the FAC's my microt chip art in my ass today, but somewhere I would see my elbow. It just moved around. So that's all. Yeah, look, it's it's interesting time, to say the least, but you know, still going strong, which is bloody. I yeah, I mean, I don't want baby. I'll tell you what the because, you know, we're a side to work full time and right here and there I think about I was like, you know what, sometimes I'd have to admit those lookdowns weren't as bad. You know, there's nothing bad, but at the just staying home all day. Only thing I would change is having the gym's open, but you know, it's want to see. My mind is going back there a few times. I yeah, like the amount of pay put that are in that same sort of boat. There was some real comfort to it, but there was a simplicity to to it. That's all right, but the gym's being open with stupid, you know. Yeah, apart from that, not too bad. You're not too bad. You know, just staying at all. Just just let me I don't want to go out because, you know, yeah, it's interesting because this whole and this is I think this is a little deeper level. I guess are talking about the aftermath. I suppose over all the past he last year and a half has been very stressful and struent strong noise overall in everyone's mental health. I guess, whether you are effected in any way or not, I think it's just been tiring, like I feel tired by just overall, like not by a particular reason, just feel tired by, you know, just needs something different from you know, this particular things. Yeah, feel like I got a little bit less energy. Yeah, hundred percent. So I wonder that's everyone in the population. Obviously it's much better now. And it'll probably we're off in a cup a year or two. But currently it's just seems like, you know, it's just overall, it's energy is not as they were used to be. People don't want to do things still like let you know, you know, you go, you get up with your mates, you say hey, want to hang out? They would still much rather just spend that time at home. Yeah, so there's all that and with all that kind of coming together, just coming back and just coming back slightly, yeah, coming back slowly. So I think it...

...just doesn't feel with all that mind, you go well, I might as well just stay home. You know, at least I just tell me to stay home. Came all the time. You know. Yeah, streaming services have definitely not dropped over the code beer. They're fucking picked up Amazon for him plus and didn't eat Disney minus. All that because stuff. See what I did the exactly something. I Easy Mon yeah, because there's yeah, I was like, I've got all these shows that I could catch up on, you know. Yeah, so that there was an interesting narrative. If they talked about like this is the time that we could have, you know, to start your side hustle and all that sort of thing. Like none of that stuff was you know, you definitely gave it a right or crack, but my stuff wasn't happening. was you know, it was forced upon and like it just was a little bit. It was a little bit, you know, a little bit makeshift to think that it was actually going to people going to take the most set opportunity and looking back, you know, it was like it actually was kind of a nice time to take a step back, but it definitely did help, I guess, help shift some priorities and if, if there are people that just would prefer to stay indoors now because they had an excuse for long enough and they realize they preferred to like, you know, it's not necessarily a bad thing. People more comfortable with that. The only negative that I feel could have come from that is, like now it's people have gotten so used to it that, you know, they spend more time at home when they really shouldn't be, like they should be socially around people where, you know, we need to be so shure to be healthy and that sort of thing. And even, you know, people live with their families and they still talk to their friends online. That that amount of time not but, you know, just regularly breaking up the routine of going out like it. Definitely some people are really affected by you can tell. You can tell it's changed a lot of people, for sure, a hundred percent. You know, sometimes I would much rather say, personally, I would much on the day at home than go out right. Yeah, just because you'll. Let you think about it, because I do. What it is. One of the biggest thing is sleep, like getting what, I don't know what it was, we're coming night, because you could just sleeping every day, right. Yeah, that, not getting those sleepy sleepings, is the biggest one, especially when you go out right. Let's say you go out, you come back home late and you're like fuck now I'm going to get four hours asleep for some reason. A year ago, you know, year and a half of those all good. I was I knew that was the normal of getting me, me getting, you know, for I was asleep and I accepted that. But now I guess missed the tail totally, totally. Yeah, so it's interesting. And but nowadays when I sleep more, I feel I regret sleeping more because I'm like fuck, I could have done shit. But you know, some time. Yeah, so it's a bit of fun to give yourself an hour to get up and get going, and that's another around our on top of that. So yeah, there's a trade off. A that's one thing I'm doing a bit more of, just fucking not being so hard on myself. You know those days that I'll just started move as quick and it's one o'clock and I feel like I haven't done much. Like No, if there's too many of those days and row, obviously, but if it's just happened, because it didn't happen like you know, it's like, well, I can still do stuff later. So it's that's it. Yeah, and I like to do say it feeling yourself getting older and a little bit more mature. Yeah, that's exactly what's the need they guys in certain ever is yeah, like today, I woke up this morning and I was a bit pissed off, pissed off about the fine right, so I kind of didn't really feel like doing much. So, yeah, I just had the break first and then I just I basically for the first half of the day I watched sep you know what seps videos? Nah, I see all so, oh, it's really interesting. I mean it's Sep is it's called ortical secret containment protection agency. It's like a basically it's a web archive of a normal, normally stories that people have kind of put together and it's like a Web archive rite. So, you know, you could write a story or whether it's a you know, inspired by real life events and kind of put together. It's became a whole be heats huge and the web archive off it, Mrs like in hundreds of thousands, right. So someone's story maybe about so it's really interesting if you get into it. It's a it's a hole that you can never stop going down. Most of it is fictional, right, but it's just interesting anyway. So people there, these guys, just talk about, you know, you know, Sep file number zero zero one, which is they always start to figure out what is that normally of zero zero one, because Webarca is controlled by everyone. So no one knows what the zero zero one is. And then the joke at that. The thing is, what if the SEP it self is zero zero one anyway? So it isn't. It's like basically kiss files of different animalist around the world. That happened. So I started watching that and I spend hours watching that. Half the day I spent one age. One's different, or is they like certain things you can have, or it's just like an episode of like Black Mirrors, just like every episode is just something completely different. It's completely different. I mean the the concept is always the same. It's always the same agency. So yet the agency is called SEP, which is the agency of like they call secret or containment and protection agency. So they, you know, protect the public from a...

...normalies sort of speak. So whatever hurts the regularity of the universe sort to speak. So, for example, this one person who develops invisibility, right, and then they, you know, they they containing contain them and research on them and like try to find out what happens after those kind of things. And someone invent something they probably shouldn't have. Well, they guess it hasn't. That's that's yeah, that's interesting as all real. None of it's all fixed, factional, fictional, affectionate. Yeah, sure, sorry, you had you for a second. You did say that. My bad. Yeah, some of it real. Is it all? Is it all just like it's right, exam it's well, the idea is most of it is inspired by real life events, but it's all for yeah, I don't yeah, it's. Yeah, some of it is way more like there's no way, there's no reality to it. Some of it is completely creative stories and those ones is the best ones. But they some of it is you go, Oh, yes, it's kind of cool. The you know, or I could happen at you might happen there. It could flack an at day. So some of them are bizarre as like this one episode will keep. So these are not APP they've been turning into episodes now, but they it's basically Web Archives of files on the Web, like written stories and like report files, reports, so written in report for okay, yeah, so one of them is one of them was about this coffee machine that that has an interdimensional portal through it. So something happened to this machine. So what is able to do is whatever liquid that you type into the machine is able to give you that, so including like any juice. But everyone thought that was machine was somewhere. I was producing. It turned that turns out the machine was just relocating the nearest liquid that it could find. So it's very interesting. So things like that, it's pretty fun. So if you ever feel a bit edgies, check it out. Selling different. Yeah, you got to send it, send it to me afterwards. I will yeah, yeah, well, interesting. I was really watching. I was really watching faster. Fear is hobs and show, hobs and show. When it first came out I thought it was going to be it was still stupid, but I was like if they're doubling down on this, another rock and but I was actually in up being a really good movie. It was very funny. And so Hobbes, who was you know, who was the rocks character he was chasing down at the first half of the movie. He was called to chase down a group of people who were trying to sell something that was going to ruin the world. Yeah, or he was trying to save the world and these people were trying to sell it and I was a virus. Like literally, he's like where's the virus? He was chasing off these people to find this virus that they were going to sell. They're going to put out in the free market and I was going to spread and start hurting people. That movies. Wait, it made into it two thousand eighteen. It's fucking crazy. Bro I was watching us today and I'm like, Oh, it's like some weird you know in obviously had the thing that Bill Gates said like probably five or six years ago on a Ted talk about viruses and that it's yeah, it's got. It's just going to be really interesting footnote in society, like appy being worn during at all and that sort of thing as well. Like yeah, it's going to be. It's going to be something really cooled, a really cool to look back on, I think, hundred percent. and not to mention, not to mention how many, how many times simpsons predict, predicted all those things. I'm really I'm really concerned that their time travel might be a thing and people just keep on coming back and can slowly start giving information. I've just in. Guess we get it, but we clearly down side. DOOT. How hot is Vanessa Kirby in a Kobe? That's that her name, Kelbree, Kelbrey from Cursey. Yeah, thing, sir, she's yeah, they definitely, they definitely cast the castled carefully that role by. They didn't just give it out any random he's so beautiful. Good Shit, it hurts looking at her. Just you know, that's all. You can't I got reminded by you can go on Youtube in as a few channels that will just show like four or five minutes and they might show four or five parts of different movies and they'll name it something and then you just re watched like an important scene or just a memorable scene. And I saw one of the scenes. It was like, you know, Hobbs and a shortcome to give for the first time and it made me laugh because that both states them and rock a really good, good sort of comedy serious actors. Rocks not really that good of a serious actor, but he's decent and I was like fuck, this a good movie. In so I stumbled upon a few of those, like even what was that movie with Matthew mcconaughey? It was came out in D and twenty forty in the end of two thousand and fourteen. It's it was a space movie. Started I just dont inter sell. Like I saw the final part of that. I'm like, oh my gosh, like I need to rewatch that one. That obviously inception. Like those, I just went down a rabbit hole. Dude, even heath, Dude, even Heath Ledge of the joker in dark knight rises, like...

...all those, all three of those movies were epic. But like he's joker was just so good. I was like I watched to seeing it that I'm like, it's so good to go back down and just realize how fucking good movies can be, brow like how legin acting can be. Interstellar was probably one of my old time favorite films. I guess my one of my old times of Dad's so good a they a little bit. I mean I got bitt annoyed over Matthew mcgon, guys accent come or or an Oregon. There's a bit of a winer as well. Yeah, I was like, but also he can't Murphy, Murphy Murphy. But yeah, overall great film. Like emotions were like all the way through, this insane sky high. At the end you're like yeah, Betty, yes, but was like yeah, I mean they went down and that they got washed away. I was like now, yeah, technicality point of views, some of those things were like, you know, some of it was good, good, physically possible, plausible, and rest of it was like you're pushing aments that went down the end. They definitely had to. They had to get a bit crazy. Yeah, I'll tell you another good film is with Chris, what's his name? Chris, one of the Chris's, Chris Spratt, and Jennifer Lawrence. The film's called traveler, traveler or something like that. Have you seen that film now? I haven't Sayed that one. It's a passenger. Passenger, I think that's what it's called. Okay, so the film's about. I just told you the quick plot, right. So films about Crisp. They get put on this spaceship for people to send to Mars or something like that, or to another planet and to a journey there is like, you know, hundred fifty years or something like that. So they're all frozen, right, and one of the capsules that they're fro Chris, it's frozen in moth malfunctions and he gets woken up, you know, a hundred years before they get to the planet. Right. So it's can I cannot ruin the plot for you. Yeah, there was another one that I saw with Matt Damon where they went to Mars and a similar sort of thing happened to Martian. Yeah, that's similar thing. Be Ever, on the plot go for I'm pretty all right. So, yeah, so interested. And then and then he basically wanders around for three years in the spaceship and then he realizes there's actually literally hundred and Hundred Years to go and is is going to have to either kill himself. He tries to kill himself but then he can't. So he realizes it's literally has a hundred, fifty hundred years to go. So he sees Jennifer Lawrence and he wakes her up and he wakes her up right and he wakes her up and but before he doesn't tell her that he woke her up. He just tells her that, you know, her her capsule malfunction turns a pot off. Yeah, yeah, yeah, so, and I feel like this plot sounds familiar. I sure it was. Definitely Chris Pratt, definitely Chris Brett. Okay, you must have seen the film then, because it's not a very memorable film, but the plot's great, right. But yeah, so what happens in the film? Then? You Go, he eventually, you know, wakes her up and then they spend like almost couple of months like not even talking to each other. Then they eventually start talking to each other. She gets pissed off about like just having known the fact that she's going to check the her life is gone. Eventually, eventually, though, they eventually the truth comes out. Somehow she sees a recording on the special of him breaking her up or yeah, definitely say that. Definitely say it. Yeah, and then, and then she gets so upset and, you know, gets so upset, basically, someone was saying. So she gets so upset and she gets mad at him. Eventually they end up having a life on the specially for a hundred years and die but anyway, and they have kids or something like that. But what was interesting was there someone said, if you because you cause you spend the first half of the film with Chris Brad Wandering around the spaceship and being basically, you know, suicidal, you felt bad for him. But if you saw it from Jennifer roys this point of view, when she, you know, this dude basically murdered her, sort of speak, you know. But it was interesting. So the whole thing was, yeah, fair bit, fairly interested of a moral ethical question there. It was a really was going to survive by himself. Yeah, he I couldn't. So this other movie, I might be confusing the ones, but I think this is one another one. I feel like I've seen that one. In this other one with Matt Damon, he and another person had a choice. They could on only one personally. They basically someone from the outside. I had to turn this machine on. So one person had to exist in the present time. The other person could be put to sleep and come back later, and then he sacrificed himself and but I think that one was actually in space. Or they might have only been one pot that was able to go back to work. I think that's maybe what that one was, but that was Martian. Potentially was another...

...one. But yeah, conceptually they're really interesting movies because they get you thinking. It's a little bit sort of fiction, but it's like it's got kind of the aura of like put you know, non fiction, especially with Alon Mosque and that sort of thing, talking about Mars travel, when, yeah, it's they're good movies like that. It's good. I feel like it's good, good and mental exercise to waste energy on. Like, you know, it's not just Kadashian mouthwash and big UN. It's like hundred percent, like most of the stuff I like watching is something that's, you know, I mean it's not saying like it's make probably not making any better as a human, but at least it's like engaging my brain where I get overall people like watching my numbing things. I think I'm more interested in watching things that are more engaging. However, however, I will watch a really good comedy film would any other week. Are Toy like laughing is medicine, right. Yeah, hundred percent. I don't know, I don't know. I can't do drama or like, you know, just overall, nothing else, just drama. Yeah, yeah, I find it quite boring because it's like, yeah, why do I want to make myself sad? Yeah, as if life isn't boring as it is, you know. Yeah, yeah, and I'll just put holes into the story, I'll just put holes into the plot or into the acting, and then I'll just be able to distance myself from actually getting a mostly engaged in the show or the movie. Like that's the best part about those things. You pitch yourself being in there. But with comedies, because they're so funny, I just forget all that Shit. I actually get involved and actually there's a go. Yeah, I mean I showed Charlotte's mum. We've gone through like we went through kingdom. We're waiting on animal king to come back out. We've gone through a couple of different shows together and I introduced her to the marvel cinematic universe. So of Watch the first season of dad evil. I was going to show her Jessica Jones, but I really wanted to watch the punisher again because I feel like for me, the punisher was the best one. So we're up to the second season the punishing now, Bro that is John Burn. Thought that is such a good fucking series. Like you can be so read watchable as well. I think it's good and she's going to really like punish. It was my favorite by a fair way. Yeah, I really liked Levil, but it's a little bit slow and it's a little bit more missing. It's, you know, it's got that sort of thing. It's still very good, don't get me wrong, and it has its points where it's as good in terms of like the way the show's made and how clever it is. It's, you know, might even better, but just pure entertainment and just like excitement for each episode. The punisher is like I'm just cheat up for every up. Like to punish. It's just the best. Yeah, so good, so good, but I'm the way that they interlappen the defenders was a complete fucking let down. But, like Jessica Jones, interlapping in the first season of the cage and obviously season two and three of dead evil was really good. But I am fish just fucking lost me. I probably won't go back and watch that. But she really liked dared evil. She yeah, I got the first six episodes of Iron Fist, first six or seven or really back and then they just they were just kept all right here, watch too long. I think my favorite. Everyone, I'm sure, didn't. It was like I wanted more episodes. Day double was my favorite because it was just so well done and was so intelligent. That's why I really liked it. I didn't really yeah, personally, I didn't really get into punish. I probably I just I don't think I gave it a chance to get into it. Yeah, I think if you really watched it, brother, you'd profit. You'd I hear you. Yeah, I'm going to put that on my list. But yeah, talking about good shows, this is it's going to be a mission to get into it. But I swear to God, if you watch up, if it's a game of thrones, offs back in them. Yuk. Never not, dude, I stopped watching that shit after the first second season. So I went through the first for because made Charlotte when on a tangent and then I came back for season A. I watched season a and yeah, I'm glad I did it that way. Don't worry. Yeah, I'm not interested in that show. However, there's this one days, this show. Yeah, I could not stop watching the moment I started. Right it's so brilliant, so clever and it keeps you on the edge. So original show is actually in Spanish. That's why I got translated, because it is it got so high ratings. It's called money heist. Yeah, it's in French. I think it's in Spanish. Okay, yeah, I've heard it's really good. That might be one of my next one's Ay, if is fucking good, dude, it's. Yeah, it's. I think it's probably one of the most clever TV shows I've seen in the past ten years. It is. It's up there. Yeah, yeah, I can't compare to any other TV shows that I like as yeah, yeah, it's just so like every second you're on the edge of the seat. I mean you can't compete. The thing is it's so different than you can't compared to any of the shows like watching. Yeah, you know, lie, I could say how matty mother was good, but money higst is a whole nother categree or show. Yeah, so, yeah, give that a God, I'd highly recommend it. Yeah, but I don't know, I wasn't. I liked how I met him other but I never, I never went bold, I went never went two bulls deep into it, like I like...

...the shows, but I never, I never, like it was like two enough men. It was really good early on, but I try to. We watch it now and it just doesn't doesn't hold up like it has an age that well, dramas are definitely the best shows in terms of like getting the story and getting the motion, like those acts something like that, but I don't watch as many. I watch a lot more comedies on the same as you. Both good dramas the one that'll that's a one that will really Jag it because it's because, I guess, it is serious. Yeah, that's why I feel like you'll fucking love punish right, like you at it up. Yeah, do it again, because I went back and in the so I watched the first season. I called it my favorite season of TV ever, like I fucking loved it because it was just so high pace and the second season, the first three episodes. So they were really weird, so I stopped watching it. So I'm actually going back and we're up to the episode six or something of season two now and I've I actually haven't seen it before. I've only ever watched the first three episodes of the second season and now I'm going to. Fuck what have I miss like, this is as good as the first one, if not better. So yeah, pretty happy that. I'm pretty happy that she likes it as well, because sometimes it's hard to find those sort of shows that you can both get into a hundred percent. Yeah, I think give yeah, give money. Yes, to go, because I think Charlotte would like to. Definitely. Yeah, though, it's one of those ages you more to go. Well, you get it once you get into it. The all the only playlist on your phone is for a while is money, highest playlist. Yeah, yeah, all the music. Yeah, the music is great as well. Mad Sad, yeah, is one of those on. Some video games are like that. As a DTA. And what was another one? fucking Marthia three was really good. Batman had a good one as well. You know, I might we're Ramblin.
