Hello Internet

H.I. #53: Two Dudes Counting

 

  ok everyone the moment has arrived have jumped in the car going to the train [TS]

  station to pick up CGP grey because today we are counting the votes let's [TS]

  get this show on the road Bristol train station pickup growing and then the [TS]

  adventure really begins so I left the house in a bit of a hurry surplus price [TS]

  and I'm a bit disorganized heist and I just realized I haven't got the money [TS]

  that I would like to have to pay for parking and crossing the Clifton [TS]

  suspension bridge so I'm gonna ring gray and I'm imagining great not the sort of [TS]

  guy he's gonna have coins on him but because he's at the train station I'm [TS]

  just saying he might be able to get some coins before I may say will give them a [TS]

  call and say you can help us guessing you don't leave a voicemail discounted [TS]

  never checked daily voice-mail this account is never checked like everyone [TS]

  arriving at Bristol Temple maids train station it's quite a beautiful station [TS]

  actually from the exterior if you if you have a look at pictures of it will visit [TS]

  it's not much to look at inside really nice for a pretty driving up to it now [TS]

  and see if gray has arrived and we'll see if you got those coins it's an [TS]

  historical day as it is is a historical or historic [TS]

  for the grammar patents whatever it is you take that so I can drive to store [TS]

  its rights rolling rolling it was good to see is good just nice to see you did [TS]

  you get the coins yes I got the coins are you did you did you find that having [TS]

  to handle so the thing we're going to do now is go to the post box to get the [TS]

  last remaining votes [TS]

  so we pulled up in Clifton near the postbox now a whole bunch of the votes [TS]

  in the post cards already in my house but the last couple of weeks worth we're [TS]

  about to pick up grade is going to be your first time even saying I've never [TS]

  seen them in person this is really exciting to say that I have more to say [TS]

  when I see them you on the other hand you been spoiling yourself you be [TS]

  looking at the post cards so you have like an exciting idea of exactly what's [TS]

  there but for me this is all the unknown so he's in a better position 'cause i [TS]

  say more excited say follow your talk about not spoiling things I feel like I [TS]

  am more excited I feel like I didn't spoil it by looking at them led 3d 3d [TS]

  you know he's filled with childish excitement and everything I am i dont [TS]

  have my key i cut twenty-eight yes she could save up to tonight we're recording [TS]

  recording me coming to pick them up say you're actually holding post cards in [TS]

  your hand now and we'll have you guys been thinking about receiving all these [TS]

  postcodes it's pretty interesting didn't even know any this is about keeping from [TS]

  you can't read mio that would be unprofessional we're doing a vote but [TS]

  deciding where official flags gonna be five candidates so everyone is sending [TS]

  in their votes as to what they want a dislike to be anyone listening to Lady [TS]

  here mailboxes is sorting through the last post cards that have made it but [TS]

  deadlines technically these haven't made up by deadline but that's the way that [TS]

  works [TS]

  tell people the day before so these lucky people are just getting in as my [TS]

  driver's license cuz I have got my case and you can see the time that I may [TS]

  provide any projects though the podcast like this is that these are obviously we [TS]

  could be discussing have black have similar voices [TS]

  steal the vote for the election to sing a break-in great voices about three [TS]

  weeks is that the settlement heist oh my god that looks heavy I think we can [TS]

  manage look at the whole how it's gonna be a long day accounting as you said you [TS]

  got you got like to take more but this one's begin this once again is a very [TS]

  impressive to see in person and we have to read every single message is that it [TS]

  you happy just checking oh and there's a big possible for us to sign some of his [TS]

  personal you know what I want covered a trial stacy journals and I cover the [TS]

  trial by a guy he got blown up by a possible and the last thing he said [TS]

  before he opened it was like this isn't a bomb and they pulled open and it was a [TS]

  bomb serious story yeah that's everything you will get some more but it [TS]

  will taper off now until we do another one of those acts were back in the gray [TS]

  tried to get in the wrong side as I do every time so even after all this time [TS]

  your default side as the Americans are so before we go home and start but we [TS]

  weren't even going home to get some supplies before we do that there's a [TS]

  special trade ya but driving over the Clifton suspension bridge oh wow it's a [TS]

  mighty handsome bridge you need to give me a parent I need to give you a pound [TS]

  this is why I have coins and try to get them out of my pocket under the sea [TS]

  pearl quick I don't like time pressure boundary happy with the recorder leaned [TS]

  across me so we can get the sound of the coin going into the bucket ok it's [TS]

  exciting this is the sound of crossing Clifton suspension bridge here comes the [TS]

  tobacco and pulling up there guys [TS]

  we're on we're very excited to talk as driving over yeah this is a bridge and [TS]

  we are driving across its narrow it is quite narrow actually that's like this [TS]

  guy has weed to close the cyclists are squishy cars that the problems like so [TS]

  much higher on the bridge that looks before you get on tape that's why it's a [TS]

  popular the suicides of how long it takes and representative hello internet [TS]

  before death comes up as a topical attentively it's important well we're [TS]

  across you can press the red button on the front I think everything is ready [TS]

  for this monumental occasion this is the biggest gonna go so far how many people [TS]

  of all these pieces of equipment I suddenly know why they feel so nervous [TS]

  when they like send people into space and this has been like sending a man [TS]

  into space [TS]

  yeah so we are filming this but for most people hopefully they're listening to a [TS]

  podcast so great you can tell people where we are going on we're in this [TS]

  amazingly now that I look at look at this amazing Lee amateurish contraption [TS]

  looks it looks amazingly impressive we are in your house in your kitchen [TS]

  because it is the biggest table that is available and we have [TS]

  have five plastic containers in front of us each labeled with one of the flag [TS]

  names and we have three very large boxes of postal ballots to go through and [TS]

  we're gonna start sorting and counting [TS]

  very shortly there's actually a sixth plastic container because there is a red [TS]

  one to my left which is like the container of doing writes that will be [TS]

  well balanced guard that are either deliberately being a nuisance people [TS]

  people giving us a hard time that's the naughty books deliberately or not my [TS]

  shirt is still nowhere can send their boarding the shredder for now but they [TS]

  going in the red naughty books over to the left has its gonna work we started [TS]

  grabbing handfuls and start sorting the thing that makes this difficult [TS]

  obviously we're all about the voting the 123 the Preferences that's where that's [TS]

  what's important but the problem is almost every one of these postcards has [TS]

  an interesting face to earth and almost every one of these postcards has little [TS]

  letters or notes or drawings or dismissal personalization that are quite [TS]

  cute but there's probably I'm guessing this like maybe over 3,000 of them and [TS]

  this is a bit like you know when you do a spring cleaning yet but you don't like [TS]

  your life is one big spring lane but whenever I do a spring clean and I'm [TS]

  sent to a room and I'm Tom Brady go into their room and decide what you gonna [TS]

  throw away I spent like an hour looking at each think I can imagine that sort of [TS]

  thing is earlier today when he first picked up all these postcards and we [TS]

  just went to grab a quick coffee I did a quick calculation to figure out how long [TS]

  is it gonna take us to sort them based on its three thousand postcards and do [TS]

  some calculations and while I was sitting here have been you set up [TS]

  everything watching it it did occur to me like wait a minute I'm counting with [TS]

  Brady and I did all of my calculations based on two seconds per votes but I'm [TS]

  gonna be like this one from this one's got pretty picture let's talk about this [TS]

  potential yeah my feeling was like ok two seconds per seems reasonable boom [TS]

  boom boom boom boom get the ball end but as they were sitting out of course [TS]

  that's not the way it actually gonna go [TS]

  you are going to advocate a bit of ruthlessness I am going to advocate [TS]

  moving a lot and we can always talk about many postcards it's so many in [TS]

  person that's the thing it's so many in person yeah so we're going to we're [TS]

  going to we're not exactly sure what's going to happen today we're going to [TS]

  start counting and I feel that you are going to be the force of slow witness [TS]

  and I'm going to be the force of wickedness and somewhere in between we [TS]

  will meet so for people who are you can't see the camera shots cuz [TS]

  Brian are taking handfuls of ballots and postcards out of the cardboard boxes in [TS]

  which they have been transported to my house and we're just gonna be throwing [TS]

  them into either leggy flag club in close White Cross Island gear or H i [TS]

  logo any predictions this is the one thing we haven't done I'm not gonna make [TS]

  a prediction because you know I've been looking into many ballots I have too [TS]

  much information you get a prediction results I I really don't have a [TS]

  prediction I'm going to leave my my mind open like I said I am going to just [TS]

  accept the will of the people I don't have i don't have a strong gets about [TS]

  which is going to be the winner [TS]

  well the first ballot number one that are pulled out which is a postcard of a [TS]

  rock everybody I promise it's a postcard which seems to be some picture of Iraq [TS]

  and I can't even tell where it's coming from one of these automatically [TS]

  generated by the entire which a lot of people that it is a vote for leggy flag [TS]

  number one they did put a number to cross number three a child like a number [TS]

  for now but people have to a number of people have to understand that there are [TS]

  references but their first vice flag flag into the flag flag being you go [TS]

  alright my first one is from Sheboygan Wisconsin a lovely picture of an autumn [TS]

  scene and a road in Wisconsin seems to be written in comic sans that's what we [TS]

  got on the back it is nail and gears as their first choice and they've written a [TS]

  little message [TS]

  told you something about Sheboygan Sheboygan Sheboygan is home to the [TS]

  world's tallest symbol of freedom a flagpole 400 feet high with a flag to [TS]

  match its not put little one of these little monkeys on the right now just so [TS]

  that I can remember this was your first Grand I've got these little stickers and [TS]

  we're gonna put them on postcards that catch our eye and we'll tell you about [TS]

  that later maybe now and give ok so we're not gonna do that for every vote [TS]

  let's let's go get a glass of water I'm already distracted though I'm actually [TS]

  really good haven't even looked at them as the fancy science thing looks like [TS]

  from the Science Museum somewhere see the thing you have to decide when you [TS]

  sorting great which is hard [TS]

  is do you hold them say you're just looking at the back or do you look at [TS]

  the pretty pictures on the front foot it's all mixed up it's all mixed up we [TS]

  should have gotten is your nephew to come in and flip them all in the same [TS]

  direction for us so we should have had him do I would've been smart even at [TS]

  this very early stage a lot of them seem to be going into nail and gear and club [TS]

  and mailing you a common cause I definitely the two early contenders [TS]

  right now like flag is really early like this is interesting I mean we have no we [TS]

  have no wonder at the white cross and eat I flag I know we've sorted 30 here's [TS]

  something interesting and I imagine we'll see if you have these here is [TS]

  someone who has not put any votes on the back of their postcard and I've just [TS]

  written a rent to us and basically what they're saying in a nutshell is that [TS]

  they're upset that we didn't give them and none of the above option and what [TS]

  I'm gonna do with this particular one is something sticker on it I would say and [TS]

  this goes into the the naughty be and it's our first ninety one that read [TS]

  being in new guy imagine going to a few wrong 'cause we're talking at the same [TS]

  time this is something we wanted as well as what is what is the percentage error [TS]

  rates not gonna be 0 going to be non-zero some people have sent in like [TS]

  this postcard I'm holding about the world's largest Pelican which is at [TS]

  Pelican Rapids Minnesota and the thing I like about it is this is an old [TS]

  looks like it's from the seventies yeah but very few people have sent in vintage [TS]

  postcards and I'm very bloody can even see the pencil written price from the [TS]

  antique store ready to toss to people who sent in antique postcards and that [TS]

  goes into naming I just got the first white cross we still have not had any [TS]

  for a child feel sorry for a tie logo at the start your first one Ferriero the [TS]

  first one for a child Lego has come from Porto in Portugal best regards from to [TS]

  university students in Porto it says and they have voted for a while ago someone [TS]

  here on this post card I have had written their votes and they've been [TS]

  crossed them all out and voted again they've they've changed the change the [TS]

  order so they really testing me but how they voted them is the top 10 clubbing [TS]

  clothes that crossed out they initially pet number one is nailing gear but [TS]

  clearly changed club can I get a can I get an umpire's decision here that is a [TS]

  14 club and climb gonna say that the one for ya think so and you go we're not [TS]

  really looking at the pictures very much that's gonna be a job for another day I [TS]

  imagine we have we have our first death related post cards all is vanity and a [TS]

  skull and the person who sent us this morbid skull postcard who voted for they [TS]

  have voted for sale and gear [TS]

  price is a nice hand-drawn hand drawn once someone has hastily whi logo and if [TS]

  you don't know that they did it hastily that might have taken hours if that took [TS]

  them hours [TS]

  announced Wednesday night and gear we've hardly made a dent in my job box one of [TS]

  three but nailing gear on putting down as my early leader thing with elections [TS]

  is that inferior a subset a random subset of the votes should give you the [TS]

  same result as the whole thing but we're going to count them all together we both [TS]

  we both at the same time we go at the same time we've both pulled out [TS]

  postcards that people have made that made their post cut the flag they voted [TS]

  for making a nice and clear on a few people have done that it's a nice touch [TS]

  as well [TS]

  ago at Las actually gets another 100 and another one it's having a search nice [TS]

  post cut in from Houston I always liked it quite a few spacey themed post cuts [TS]

  coming childlike special place in my people know that pandering this one has [TS]

  a lovely portrait of you and I on the back which is another thing a lot of [TS]

  people have taken to drawing pictures of us only question with this early voting [TS]

  is if there's any kind of time dependency on the voting as we are [TS]

  sorting boats in reverse chronological order right because this is a box of [TS]

  picked up today [TS]

  yeah these are the most recent votes so we'll find out if there's any kind of [TS]

  time by us [TS]

  yeah and whether there's any sort of clustering and I got a letter letter for [TS]

  you [TS]

  someone has written a letter written to Mr period will put that is made we will [TS]

  put that to one side for now we we told people letters wouldn't be counters [TS]

  votes if there's a vote on their flags having a little surged ahead over there [TS]

  a child I think we're going to eliminate anything first is probably gonna be that [TS]

  one after your little introduction you said I was going to be a slow down the [TS]

  stretch and I'm surprising myself but he'll undistracted I am and I'm just [TS]

  looking at the votes of our first single preference vote there someone just [TS]

  chillin gears or nothing they want under the rules every time I try logo comes up [TS]

  I feel like little 3046 great one thing that came up a few times we sort of [TS]

  speaking in the sticker [TS]

  we're working at the same time is another another sealed letter it says [TS]

  this is not a vote but please open we'll see about that in fact that no one [TS]

  should go in the Redbox the naughty box we have gone from the lender jours [TS]

  someone's drawn acutely to Chi Chi audrey is here watching us to the vote [TS]

  by the way people basically great spent the whole time I was sitting up the [TS]

  cameras in the sound system [TS]

  playing with Audrey I did so Gregor the thing I was starting to say was a lot of [TS]

  people that were against white cross [TS]

  because they felt it was it had like bad connotations or look for the socialists [TS]

  and I were talking about swastikas and also it's a rubbish did you did you ever [TS]

  feel anything about what crossing I think that's just silliness myself all [TS]

  that stuff each flag is like its own its own thing like you give it the meaning [TS]

  that it is going to have ya trying to sort this stuff is surprisingly harder [TS]

  than you think it is trying to go fast and sort them correctly and kind of [TS]

  looking at the interesting things I'm not even looking at the interesting even [TS]

  looking at where they're from what the pictures I that's for another day I [TS]

  guess you have things that are going to leave my house on that and I thought I [TS]

  was going to bring them back I don't think I'd let you leave with them even [TS]

  if you beg attached to them that I came here my pickup truck load of the back [TS]

  with postcards that will keep with me for the rest of my life [TS]

  moved from house to house as time goes on we haven't even made a dent in the [TS]

  first box gonna wear as well don't wanna like us but that's not gonna waste at a [TS]

  place where is all the one is very nice we do not have time for that right now [TS]

  we have an unusual material 10 yes this is made from very thin bode very thin [TS]

  piece of almost like very simple soared [TS]

  very interesting with this come from where's that come from those that come [TS]

  from a country that is what it looks like Latvia or something but where's [TS]

  Vilnius Vilnius I have no idea don't flag flag it's an unusual material but [TS]

  I'll allow it [TS]

  yeah now the votes are in we don't have to deter people anymore right thing it's [TS]

  what we didn't want to get was gigantic one made of aluminum or anything like [TS]

  that [TS]

  yeah now here is an interesting thing rate this is a side effect of the [TS]

  process we've gone through because when we went and picked up the postcards [TS]

  today we we saw the people at the post center there were almost a bit [TS]

  overwhelmed by how much they were having to sort you need I wouldn't say they [TS]

  were almost overwhelmed they seem they seem quite completely and as a result we [TS]

  seem to have here in the box occasionally letters and things that [TS]

  aren't even meant [TS]

  us why they meant for other post boxes or other addresses so I'm going to put [TS]

  these ones in the North CBN and return the keys to the mailbox center so they [TS]

  can go to the proper recipients are you sure you don't want to separate them [TS]

  somewhere else we can have that many in the notice alright alright like this one [TS]

  some of the times do calligraphy for their vote that's not to say that i very [TS]

  nice thank you very much Its a flag flag maybe people who are more calligraphy [TS]

  oriented address their old fashioned are drawn to flag flag which is clearly the [TS]

  most old-fashioned of the flags I think we have a very high correlation so far [TS]

  with calligraphy and flag flag votes it's a one-to-one correlation gearbox is [TS]

  definitely the most quickly question is if this continues if nailing gear keeps [TS]

  that Slade will it's laid be sufficient to survive the first runoff when we [TS]

  start distributing preferences [TS]

  that's that's why these things are interesting is it is it may well be that [TS]

  like just as in real elections there's one group that is not the majority but [TS]

  is very clearly focused and everybody else is spread out between different [TS]

  choices that's pretty common when you look at real elections that there's one [TS]

  group that wants one thing or nothing when that happens great when one person [TS]

  sort of concentrates and the rest is quite spread is a common for the person [TS]

  who has that first-round lead to get pegged back on preferences I don't have [TS]

  any data to back it up but I can't just say that the thing that I have looked at [TS]

  it seems that in many countries in many elections it's one groups together large [TS]

  group and then a number of groups that are split but would all prefer each [TS]

  other to the one leading command so they can pinch victory from that from that [TS]

  first round but it may be possible that nailing years gets very few second [TS]

  preference votes [TS]

  well some this once in one hand Lata likes my star because they have typed [TS]

  their vote in the postcard is Checkpoint Charlie the famous and on the back they [TS]

  have typed them vote and then they have typed note to us and at the very end [TS]

  they say sadly my typewriter does not have a flower emoji but I can do an [TS]

  interrobang [TS]

  you can manually doing it and I've always had to rewind do that just to [TS]

  show you how much I love typewriters for people who happen to be watching this [TS]

  they did vote for now and discipline I'm here just to show you [TS]

  within reach of where we are doing this account I have a typewriter on the [TS]

  camera the typewriter right here I do love a good time proud of its hard work [TS]

  sorting votes I just just crossed my activity goal for the day according to [TS]

  my up a lot of very happy now down there we go [TS]

  jazz know you're much classier than me it's never the argument in which we have [TS]

  a piece of spam [TS]

  oh yeah we have that's not even meant for us it's just a piece of junk mail [TS]

  that's very much going on the naughty been i've covered a few elections over [TS]

  the years and I was an election for the Adelaide City Council I was sort of [TS]

  there in the room although doing this I was sorting all the ballots and i was [TS]

  just talking to the election officials and waiting to see the results and [TS]

  someone dropped one of the ballot papers and i got sucked into an air [TS]

  conditioning and got lost and I could see it but they couldn't reach it and I [TS]

  spent 20 minutes discussing what to do about this one ballot they didn't know [TS]

  who was four and it was and all the other candidates with Aaron was [TS]

  discussing what to do and in the end they just left and they said oh we can [TS]

  get that one of its not gonna make a difference [TS]

  always surprised I didn't like it really sticks with me to this day that the [TS]

  election officials decided are well it doesn't really matter and they left this [TS]

  under uncounted ballots in a film like this travesty really up for a few [TS]

  seconds shattered democracy for me that election officials were willing to not [TS]

  count as vote I just noticed we have something here that one has done a great [TS]

  as the postcard they have made their front of their postcode is great but [TS]

  they have voted for an island gear but it's funny you should say that Gray was [TS]

  at that very moment and I know you don't believe in coincidences but at the very [TS]

  believe that they happen at the very moment you pointed that out [TS]

  have a great but this person has voted for great they have put their vote that [TS]

  they want to be great because I flag that's not allowed that go straight [TS]

  there one votes being stuck somewhere story makes me think of every once in a [TS]

  while on the internet you will see someone claiming that an election was [TS]

  rigged or that the results are invalid because they voted for a candidate who [TS]

  then shows up having no votes when they do the final tally by someone will do a [TS]

  write-in candidate and they're supposed to reports like oh yes one vote for this [TS]

  is made up candidate but maybe maybe they're one vote was the one vote to get [TS]

  sucked into the air conditioning system and so it's not actually a temporary [TS]

  ballot there are quite a few of these three dimensional postcards coming in [TS]

  where you know what do you call those that kind of thing where you took the [TS]

  paper two different angles and you see three different moves is the earth [TS]

  moving back and forth those things which ones those magic I think I actually like [TS]

  three-dimensional holograms basically is a few of those coming in [TS]

  hologram postcodes this is amazing even we still hardly made a dent in the back [TS]

  up against my wife could be coming home to a to a crazy scene I was hoping this [TS]

  would all be cleaned everything on thanks in meet before before you come [TS]

  back my wife would not be happy if she comes home to find her kitchen tent into [TS]

  the hello Internet polling station oh whoa what happened there [TS]

  oh great fit into that stuck together this looks suspicious I have some I have [TS]

  suspicious activity [TS]

  suspicious activity look we have potential voter we have instances of [TS]

  voter fraud I have [TS]

  postcards all identical votes from an identical person identical front I see [TS]

  what's happened here [TS]

  explain explain what their number yet someone's made a flip book my first past [TS]

  the post voting video yeah and so what we actually have have is a serious [TS]

  problem because there are probably twenty three of these because they're [TS]

  numbered 21 of 23 so we've got to keep an eye out this stuff he's voted for [TS]

  them even and they've even put at the playground about it I can't believe [TS]

  we're having to do with bunch of fraud so keep an eye on ya gotta keep an eye [TS]

  out for this and on the reverse video I'm sure you know every single frame of [TS]

  my video so yeah I feel like they're probably back together if I was being [TS]

  really sneaky the voter fraud start spread them out over multiple times the [TS]

  one who is committing voter fraud who are they trying to help they trying to [TS]

  get up and close their their preference here I have a bill with someone someone [TS]

  say someone had some bank statement or build it made into a religion books [TS]

  vitally important they received your your kidney transplant has arrived [TS]

  please contact us like this we have an unusually shaped on the hives the [TS]

  parliament building in Wellington New Zealand nice quite a few bites of come [TS]

  from New Zealand I guess there in the flag voting movie devoting one's in the [TS]

  flag referenda you might as well vote another want to be noticed I don't know [TS]

  if you've noticed great cause you haven't been on email too much lately [TS]

  but a lot of people have been sending us the ballot paper for the New Zealand [TS]

  flag reference no I haven't actually seen it now people are actually voting [TS]

  so people have been scanning them and sending us a copy so we can see what it [TS]

  looks like do you think it's a well-designed ballots yeah I do actually [TS]

  I think it looks reasonably idiot proof [TS]

  even though I don't agree with their shortlist the ballot papers from memory [TS]

  they include images of what it looks like flying and things like I am worried [TS]

  that when I'm talking to the same time I am throwing clothes into the wrong beans [TS]

  but that's what we have to do the counter separately like that I think the [TS]

  same thing happens when we can talk it vastly increases the probability of [TS]

  error we tried to a recount again no but I mean it gives you a chance when you're [TS]

  counting to just look and maybe notice one that's wrong thing we got the bigger [TS]

  boxes have to rearrange the Nile and gearbox own just so we can fit more in [TS]

  this will be interesting to look at a time thats my favorite postcards [TS]

  postcards that come from towns that shouldn't really have passed but here's [TS]

  one from Wolverhampton and I know Wolverhampton I've been there and I like [TS]

  and I like I can't say I'm familiar with all the killers plan will have to [TS]

  believe or not but I'm surprised it's a town that has opposed cut and when you [TS]

  look at their post God you can see why I'm surprised no those are those are [TS]

  iconic buildings were you when you do was selection bias everybody's look at [TS]

  every place has at least one thing photogenic for a postcard is a very from [TS]

  Wolverhampton for Frankie flag which they described as the one true I hope [TS]

  you enjoy the glories in nineteen seventies vistas of Wolverhampton [TS]

  comes from its funny doing this great this feels like normally someone like [TS]

  you and your work this is the sort of job you wouldn't have ended up doing you [TS]

  would have out-sourced touching all these postcards and dealing with all [TS]

  this paper it best not to think how many people by proxy you're touching by [TS]

  touching the postcards you just put out of your mind what God had a big hand [TS]

  watch later on [TS]

  yeah we're gonna have a big and watch later I'm surprised you haven't had one [TS]

  yet you don't want a good hand wash doesn't mind a good hand wash someone [TS]

  has sent us a letter and I feel like there's a postcard in there and it's [TS]

  come from Nigeria I think it's legit I just think maybe you can't send a [TS]

  postcard from Nigeria [TS]

  the underside we'll take a look at it later but I will give it a chance every [TS]

  vote matters breathing but if you break the rules of hating you break the rules [TS]

  of voting we said no envelopes there's another vote for great paper ballot is [TS]

  spoiled someone here has just written this ballot is spoiled I like that they [TS]

  went to the trouble of sending an end we have our first team for their trip to [TS]

  Norway everyday thanks for visiting team someone here has painted a reunion swamp [TS]

  and on the ballot as a vote for flag again sort of the art and artistic [TS]

  person on a here is an interesting dilemma for us here is what looks like a [TS]

  legitimate vote that has come from portland oregon and someone I think [TS]

  maybe the postal service has put some sticker on the back of the card for some [TS]

  reason that perfect same place this article in the foreign holdout whatever [TS]

  that means but it means we can see what they voted for it sound like others got [TS]

  this got sorted into their foreign system which Portland make sure that the [TS]

  message can you say the postal service has put the sticker over the vote but [TS]

  actually I can see under the right light I can see through the sticker and they [TS]

  have voted for nailing gear and I think you know we've gotta let them have their [TS]

  vote I will let you decide on that one that's going an island near the vote [TS]

  counts this one is spoiled by a team but they're voting for the comic sans [TS]

  version of Maryland which was one of the ones originally in our makeup flag for [TS]

  help but spoil the way Spoto take a deep cut hello Internet reference that right [TS]

  just with the people who were on that thread remember that flag we've got one [TS]

  from the Netherlands right just was roughly we've been jet-setting about [TS]

  this last week but this on this episode will probably talk about that in a [TS]

  future episode yeah I think so I think I could not possibly talk about anything [TS]

  done while doing this is a postcard with my face on [TS]

  say people are being creative and also taking the mickey out of us which is to [TS]

  be expected [TS]

  respected and appreciated 9999 gear made of thick carpet club enclose oh here we [TS]

  go this person has broken the rules of voting by writing a message to us above [TS]

  the essay that spoiled that's definitely it spoiled greedy but we know their [TS]

  intent and this is democracy [TS]

  this is this is how you open up the box and having to evaluate everything I [TS]

  would I would look at you I'm gonna follow my instinct and grading [TS]

  that had landed in my hand it would be the naughty box already I'm lucky [TS]

  listener whoever it was who sent that one in I think we need you very fact [TS]

  that you do that as you slowly undermining democracy so that's how [TS]

  democracy dies the wrong account with bending the rules that's how it ties [TS]

  counted ballots you're bending the rules my friends just making stuff was [TS]

  references basically we going to do a show on Star Wars people demand it [TS]

  you book your tickets you have to go to the pub study I'm surprised I'm not I'm [TS]

  not sure I've done that puts my VIP theater no other way of course [TS]

  either way I've ever seen that movie and surprisingly empty when you book it that [TS]

  way even for Star Wars I have avoided all the trailers so far but then it [TS]

  becomes like a bizarre kind of investment that you have created over [TS]

  time that the possibility of ruining that they get bigger and bigger as time [TS]

  goes on like what you use more and more so that's one of the reasons why I want [TS]

  to book soon as it's like protecting the investment of having remained spoiler [TS]

  free for a long period of time [TS]

  have you remains but they're not open watching I haven't been like watching [TS]

  interviews with customers to watch the trailer ok I think I think that's like [TS]

  that like a level one of spoilers but you haven't [TS]

  been going on like sites that come through everything and try to figure out [TS]

  all the stuff and it's not much I have to admit I've called a little bit how [TS]

  could I think it's gonna be what makes you say that maybe it won't be that [TS]

  great expectation is not that it will be great what I am thinking not that it [TS]

  will be bad but when I'm thinking is it might be a bit like I rebooted Star Trac [TS]

  which I quite enjoyed like was a fun movie but is no way I can say oh it's a [TS]

  perfect maybe not but I i think that's a very good I'd be happy if the Star Wars [TS]

  you start was reached that level [TS]

  oh yeah and so I do have expectations but I also feel like I haven't really [TS]

  watched that Star Trek movie in a long time and i never feel like compelled to [TS]

  rewatch whereas the original Star Wars like every once in the last like well I [TS]

  guess I have to watch the trilogy again would you watch the original Star Wars [TS]

  movies so every once every two years maybe on average about you mister quotes [TS]

  it all the time [TS]

  probably the same but really by choice normally buy outs on TV or have a look [TS]

  sort of thing I really will be speaking of which there's a storm trooper a [TS]

  stormtrooper on the stamp their first vote for hla-dr look here's one with the [TS]

  votes have been consumed under a post at night now is that the one that you saw [TS]

  on Twitter about being concealed under a person is for as I feel about club in [TS]

  Clause [TS]

  misdirected piece of mail that looks like a payslip for someone that we can [TS]

  make this profitable this episode is brought to you by Aries Aries offers [TS]

  high-quality razor blades for a fraction of the price of the big freezer brands [TS]

  and given that Movember is now over you might need some new razor blades to [TS]

  shave off that stash that you've been busy growing areas was started by two [TS]

  guys who wanted a better product without paying an arm and a leg they make their [TS]

  own believes from their own factory in Germany these are high quality [TS]

  performing German believes crafted by shaving experts giving you a better [TS]

  shape that respects your face and your wallet because they own that German [TS]

  factory harry's offers factory direct [TS]

  pricing plus you don't have to wait around for the guy to come unlock the [TS]

  ante shoplifting case at the drug store to buy them they're shipped directly to [TS]

  your door and boy do I love not having to go outside to buy stuff anything I [TS]

  can get shipped to my door I will have shipped to my door now to go to Harry's [TS]

  dot com and use the promo code each you can check out of their starter set which [TS]

  is an amazing deal for 15 bucks you get a razor moisturizing shave cream or gel [TS]

  and three razor believes that promo code H I will get you five bucks off your [TS]

  first purchase knocking it down to 10 bucks first orkut it's a pretty good [TS]

  deal for comparison carries believes are roughly comparable to Gillette Fusion [TS]

  but Harry's leaves are about half the price of fusions so with great packaging [TS]

  nice heavy handles classy designs can't go wrong with Harry's once again go to [TS]

  Harry's dot com and use the promo code each eye to get $5 off your first [TS]

  purchase intent to this point now that we we did our best to wait out the [TS]

  idiots now it's about any more ballots from a nap vote-rigging yet you haven't [TS]

  either which makes me suspicious maybe maybe the real trick here is to mess [TS]

  with us and the label of one out of 23 but only stand for that was actually [TS]

  what you've done sir [TS]

  congratulations that's like that's true terrorism but slightly spoiled I didn't [TS]

  know that mask face for Star Wars tonight that character and I knew only [TS]

  see the shot of that person from behind in the first trailer I never saw that [TS]

  mask so I just received a slightly small very small spoiler for Star Wars we have [TS]

  a spoiled ballots from the Netherlands with C Nick black piece of course like [TS]

  pete was a somewhat controversial outside of the Netherlands Christmas [TS]

  character but inside of the Netherlands is a totally normal Christmas character [TS]

  who is a helper to saint nick but is usually played by a white person [TS]

  who paint themselves black yes and is so controversial outside of the Netherlands [TS]

  yes I grew up in a somewhat Dutch household and so seems totally normal to [TS]

  me but I can also understand why in your household even that was used was my mom [TS]

  had a bunch of like Dutch kinda stuff that we used to do around Christmas time [TS]

  and so I was used to see like black people character but I used to see him [TS]

  on like wrapping paper and some other stuff so I was aware of his existence so [TS]

  the Maryland flag is a bit of a theme on some of these postcards and here's [TS]

  someone has sent a postcard which has got sort of a Jeep which has been [TS]

  painted with the Maryland flag motif looks awesome that Maryland flag and [TS]

  they've written warning on the post cuts and Pierce this post cut gems shredders [TS]

  showed that about and it's a valid ballots it's a vote for flag flair you [TS]

  really are going to keep these postcards forever aren't you bringing you know [TS]

  when you dial you bequeath into the museum of hello internets yeah I think [TS]

  that museum will be up and running before while before I die so I'll [TS]

  probably already be in the museum if we have a time-lapse video to go with this [TS]

  podcast of people who choose to watch the video the question is will people be [TS]

  able to resist kind of fast-forwarding through it so they can so they can watch [TS]

  which box is filling up the most quickly though is people who jump to the end [TS]

  right at the Starbucks in ways that I cannot understand people will do its the [TS]

  internet they can do what they like [TS]

  it's such a shock when I see a vote for a child I have to double check I'm doing [TS]

  the same thing every single time it's a bit of a wait what we're in that box I [TS]

  don't even know it's a perfectly acceptable flag it's a bit sad that is [TS]

  doing so poorly if the vote against tradition is what it is breeding we [TS]

  designed it so the vote against you I know you didnt designed to be able to [TS]

  get a like a like people trying to mess with us at the picture of one flag vote [TS]

  for a different day this person here has made a joint postcode with the club [TS]

  include logo is the as the face and then you turned over they voted for the [TS]

  second choice as a child and as hell I have a nice day I am team that the [TS]

  person intentionally trying to mess with us putting in the wrong box we thought [TS]

  you were very thorough we're definitely going to catch all of the things that we [TS]

  notice sketching and not catch the things that we don't it must have been [TS]

  some fascinating for the people sorting things at the post place see you saying [TS]

  that you say that because you're the kind of person who would be fascinated [TS]

  about this because you have on record they were not fascinated enough to make [TS]

  do any investigation to try to figure out what it was that's true he would [TS]

  just wondering what the hell are all these postcards for but not a wandering [TS]

  enough to type in club and claws into google and find out the answer so I [TS]

  think actually we just represented an enormous amount of unwelcome work in the [TS]

  most likely thing here a bit of misdirected mile actually in the end up [TS]

  feeling less confident the postal service oh yeah definitely definitely [TS]

  makes you wonder how many votes haven't made it for the rest of my life I will [TS]

  feel much more understandable when someone says all was lost in the mail [TS]

  and yea right of course it wasn't lost in the mail we have what five pieces of [TS]

  mail that was lost in the mail already wonderful the neighboring your boxes [TS]

  have postcards they're wondering what the heck are ya [TS]

  someone send me a postcard that says Nalin here's what they think it's not [TS]

  like some kind of spy messages in the last week has just saying [TS]

  Skull and Bones something actually I tell you what doing this is also making [TS]

  me rethink the request I was gonna make to my nephew to go and actually type in [TS]

  all the votes for us like to know how much is too much impossible if not [TS]

  impossible but it's just you're burning hours of human efforts but that's just [TS]

  not for nothing but just to build the kind of mild curiosity of like I'm [TS]

  mildly interested in the exact statistics why don't you spend many [TS]

  weeks of this information so that I can go pretty much expected to find out from [TS]

  that they're very I think I'm having my first brain fled you need to get you [TS]

  some team which he first tea break probably in about 20 minutes 20 minutes [TS]

  let's finish this books have been pulling from a different box that you [TS]

  change boxes away when I wanna grab that box you're the only one is implying that [TS]

  box it makes me feel good that we're making more progress and i realized she [TS]

  doing ok I mean there's still a lot but I honestly think we could take a break [TS]

  pretty soon you take a break before you need to take breaks when you don't need [TS]

  a break if you think you might need a break the answer is yes if you reach the [TS]

  point where you're thinking I definitely to break you waited too long to take a [TS]

  break [TS]

  discount left intentionally blank I sent it it's fun descendants yeah that's the [TS]

  answer is fun descended this person's has voted for the red and yellow version [TS]

  of nailing gear that spoiled ballot now you're being a strict no numbers [TS]

  oh I'm counting it no i i get that of course that's what they main oil it's [TS]

  not a lot it's not about you divining voter intense it's about is it a valid [TS]

  ballots it is not a valid ballots this is like a philosophical question about [TS]

  democracy for people who this person on the back of their post expedient again [TS]

  I'm gonna throw a look at the most the most objective person ever write my [TS]

  bleeding heart wants to go out to this person but then you know who it is you [TS]

  should never be doing anything with the election now I know their intent their [TS]

  intent was not to vote their intent was to test test and you failed I got it [TS]

  because you have to look on the other side like this person is being a pain in [TS]

  the [TS]

  this person is being such a pain in the bum show them on the podcast others [TS]

  question though it does a valid account or not I will have leader for you [TS]

  an interesting question about one particular postcard if it should count [TS]

  or not so we will leave that to later but don't let me forget cause I almost [TS]

  forgot I think I can predict what your thing is I think I can predict what your [TS]

  going to ask me do i do that now doing try to predict predicted ok people [TS]

  listening a few seconds to think what they think is gonna be due to do [TS]

  do do do do do you think someone asked if they could give you a post it in [TS]

  person and and and put it into the boxes today that is correct that happened say [TS]

  I'm not good almost done that I say that this is not an implication that you [TS]

  dumped yeah they UK so that you think on that if that's your counter not my [TS]

  feeling is and i know im just a bowl of contradiction in your us know shouldn't [TS]

  count that one you think now I well if your gonna be really simplistic about up [TS]

  there are the trying to cheat the deadline or save money but other people [TS]

  had to pay by steps above post goes to take power and they're sort of thinking [TS]

  I know that I know this isn't their actual reason but the whole idea was we [TS]

  put some sort of the same time we do we deliberately put some resistance in [TS]

  their way so that people didn't cheat the system and all these people that [TS]

  have taken the trouble to send as postcards overcame that resistance and [TS]

  went to the post box and all that sort of thing and one person taking advantage [TS]

  of the fact they know you are they saw you [TS]

  hasn't done that so don't you think a certain time to resistance is also [TS]

  following the rules [TS]

  appropriately which you seem to just be willing to cast aside if you are able to [TS]

  do magic divine the intention of voting no because what I'm doing it doing it [TS]

  properly is a kind of resistance yeah but people make mistakes people make [TS]

  mistakes and we punish them for their mistakes that's the question being or [TS]

  trying to answer it if someone with all the will in the world wanted to take [TS]

  power went to the post office and border post kinda forgot to write the numbers [TS]

  do we punish them for that [TS]

  do they not get to be part of democracy because they accidentally made a mistake [TS]

  as opposed to your person who knew they were supposed to send it said can you [TS]

  put it in there for me anyway cause I won't make the deadline otherwise so [TS]

  they knew they were trying to do we have announced very solid wood postcard oh [TS]

  yeah actually might award from the North Carolina clearly breaking [TS]

  the mermaid on it clearly breaking the Rose what are they voted for a child [TS]

  needs a Lego needs all the help we can get and I will also grant that the [TS]

  unusual materials is vague enough to allow [TS]

  counting discretion whereas put your numbers on there is not big enough to [TS]

  allow vote counter discretion discretion is still being shown sometimes just took [TS]

  off big softy hard as nails I think showing my cushions that he's another [TS]

  unusual one for this one's made of metal from Dubai nailing nice person I was [TS]

  with the current name for it not the Burj Dubai anymore it's Burj Al Arab [TS]

  Burj Khalifa Burj Khalifa Burj Khalifa building on its got lovely stamps that's [TS]

  just a perfect storm of cool hello Internet us from someone called Peter [TS]

  another vote for nailing here now here's someone has sent in their ballot and [TS]

  over where the votes should be they have sticky tape how is it that you get all [TS]

  of the ambiguous it's like the postcard the No [TS]

  to get to you to try to make their way through this sticky tape a playing COD [TS]

  over their votes which is actually very hard to remove invalid I am gonna count [TS]

  that is invalid are finally but do you know what if you look closely they have [TS]

  actually stick to playing and I am I think I know what it is I am wondering [TS]

  whether or not it is indeed the queen of spades and the Jack of Diamonds but I [TS]

  will not find out now there is going to be a mystery for another day but I think [TS]

  I think you are right I think your powers of prediction will prove valid [TS]

  yet again that's pretty cool stuff done that but that voters not been counted [TS]

  because there is too much resistance for us to have 24 Brady Brady anyway [TS]

  was the first one maybe I would have done it and that were actually faced [TS]

  with the true scale of this thing [TS]

  and at what time it is and when is your wife coming home yet this is this is [TS]

  taking longer than I thought it would this really threw me I was trying to [TS]

  figure out what this person wrote to us but actually a postcard to someone else [TS]

  that is yet another piece [TS]

  someone visiting bone it's it's addressed to Steve love from has ended [TS]

  up in the hell of Internet ballot box I feel really badly about that that's [TS]

  that's terrible [TS]

  missing a postcard from their mom because of us put the correct address I [TS]

  will get it to the proper dress you know where that is [TS]

  yep that's right that's right now where the votes when you can you explain when [TS]

  you hand deliver it deep into the for the postcard yeah make sure you listen [TS]

  and thanks to back leaves for supporting the show had a break for we stopped more [TS]

  sorting maybe we should make these boxes up a little bit well as really want to [TS]

  try to compassion yeah they the Nile in gay books is close to overflowing make [TS]

  sure we don't lose any down in the air conditioning vents right actually much [TS]

  harder than ever thinking it was going to be like playing hard but of course [TS]

  it's not like playing cards because they're not all the same size yeah again [TS]

  I'm having sympathy for the men and women in the little postal center again [TS]

  now dealing with dozens upon dozens of these coming in and working with the [TS]

  averages to this on average how many came in today can you imagine if we [TS]

  opened all these envelopes that came in and that would be impossible I mean I [TS]

  think these leaked went up all the time at least you're not really supposed to [TS]

  be working off-camera great kinda ruins the effect there's nowhere to go this [TS]

  way I look like a magic persons doing something like in apollo the Apollo moon [TS]

  missions whenever one of the astronauts it went off camera and it's something a [TS]

  bit off paste it was a bit like doing this is a part of the mission plan [TS]

  camera with all those ballots is he is he doing [TS]

  change ballots it's a conspiracy hearing you just giving people their conspiracy [TS]

  theory moment and whenever someone stepped off-camera what are they doing [TS]

  who knows whether many off-camera moments of has that was playing down to [TS]

  the tens of seconds [TS]

  particularly in their early missions with just one static camerawoman all of [TS]

  Apollo 12 was pretty much off camera because I fried the camera ten seconds [TS]

  into the mission so the TV footage of Apollo 12 is non-existent Allen been [TS]

  accidentally pointed the camera at the Sun and burned out the year didn't have [TS]

  a camera didn't bring to use cameras are expensive back at ya I mean there's a [TS]

  camera on the lunar module I don't know what that would have picked up still [TS]

  that may have still picked up some stuff the camera they used when they were done [TS]

  the letter but the camera on the tripod is more important was gone I kinda can't [TS]

  believe that they don't have to wait was so important on those missions yeah we [TS]

  do so important but if you lose the camera I guess the problem is everything [TS]

  is vital as of right now we've we've rearranged niland year [TS]

  compacted its compact us so we can fit more in let's get back to work here for [TS]

  nail and beauty rest this takes shape what are you thinking is this gonna go [TS]

  to like nailing he clearly has a lead is this even gonna go to preferences but I [TS]

  was wondering just as we were coming back down I was trying to eyeball to [TS]

  eyeball the different types of the boxes before we compacted [TS]

  I just found someone from a vote rigor also like this one which I think I've [TS]

  seen a few postcards from a discarded from which is my disqualified yet I [TS]

  think there's someone else who's done a bunch of caught and put on side so you [TS]

  vote against I think we're catching some of yours we catch everyone that we can [TS]

  go to preferences [TS]

  eyeballing the signs of the various boxes and I would say that I don't know [TS]

  if it's going to go to preferences eyeballing it it just seemed within the [TS]

  visual margin of error that maybe we will maybe we won't for now appears to [TS]

  be disappointing if it didn't go to and you've got to stop calling it a night [TS]

  yeah it's nice when you're getting the name wrong even wrote the official great [TS]

  someone has sent a postcard of the skyline of Denver and they like that [TS]

  they've drawn in their own mighty black MBS brackets delivery vehicle for it [TS]

  blackstone voted for club include clauses even if mailing gear is gonna [TS]

  win win win this which is looking very possible I just hope it goes to [TS]

  preferences that is where the suspense is without a doubt where the expenses I [TS]

  mean like our evening will be much shorter if it doesn't go to preferences [TS]

  but it will be more disappointing so we will see how we have another postcard [TS]

  for Steve from someone else to now hosts a far as Steve got one from Dulles [TS]

  International airports where the airport itself is happy that I saw so much of me [TS]

  this summer they would say it's a postcard from Dulles Airport no vote [TS]

  they definitely the way to get our intention is to do the spoiled ballots [TS]

  by definition paid more attention to it I like this person start they've made a [TS]

  customized postcard with icons of hello internet and all look at this and all of [TS]

  our other YouTube channels in the cortex podcast they've made a little all of our [TS]

  various endeavors I notice I am taking a lot more there's always that all of our [TS]

  various endeavors its my three-year-old higher projects [TS]

  and you're sixteen other projects they voted for nine league in at the end of [TS]

  their freedom there dear Brady more Kate please everybody loves Kiki objectivity [TS]

  doesn't fraudster I know this person has been a nuisance this is one of the other [TS]

  nuisance people who send this postcode I finally figured out what their postcode [TS]

  means they oppose cuts has only one of these is filled in according to the hope [TS]

  of ever she said in like 10 postcards all of them are spoiled ballots this one [TS]

  this is this one follows the rules so that's their legitimate I'm almost [TS]

  tempted to throw [TS]

  feeding your eyes you can have your ladies and gentlemen do not have Brady [TS]

  run your election with all due respect and I think if I myself like voting [TS]

  against it now has become like the big months to this is always with israeli [TS]

  humans love underdogs yeah that's the thing has become like Manchester United [TS]

  or something like that the Yankees to put in your language it's so popular [TS]

  nobody votes for that kind of thing [TS]

  nice weather nice post cut of the Burj Khalifa with no votes came back this is [TS]

  gonna go to preferences I guess I think it's closes like within the visual [TS]

  margin of error no I think it's Cup comfortably gonna go to preferences and [TS]

  another bold prediction well alright this is a bold predictions hii logo that [TS]

  I think even after we distribute that a child logo preferences we might need to [TS]

  go to another round [TS]

  you may be right he may be right about that but we have two rounds I mean I [TS]

  don't know if if I can imagine a more exciting evening than having to [TS]

  preference is to distribute I might not be able to handle that much excitement [TS]

  have another postcard from Marcy this time we're gonna many postcards for [TS]

  other people I'm just the mail that's the beauty of the randomness that the [TS]

  beauty [TS]

  not an empty books I've ever read one of the books as we go this is this is a [TS]

  special work about this one [TS]

  this person here who has sent us a postcard has has made a compilation [TS]

  postcard of various liberian County flags combined with the Maryland flag I [TS]

  believe that's the river Rivergate county do you know how much how do you [TS]

  know I have made my own steps you can do this bro mile you can make your own [TS]

  steps I've made my own stamps for my christmas cards this year and for some [TS]

  postcards I'm sending from number for our that incorporates the refugee County [TS]

  that's where you got them from I knew you had the stamps I didn't know I [TS]

  wasn't sure if you actually were courting stamps from liberia 1000 have [TS]

  bought some original ones but I got my right of course I had to make my and I [TS]

  can actually send to the post you come across a postcard that people have left [TS]

  in like a plastic wrapping for protection and do you think I've done [TS]

  that cause they wanted to make sure it was safe for the yeah it's like they [TS]

  wanted to be mint condition like comic books and i'm i'm saying that that [TS]

  totally valid because you can read its right to be a little we didn't really [TS]

  cover that in the rules degrees less is that right you know if the next time we [TS]

  run a flag referendum you know we're called to consult somewhere will have a [TS]

  will know even more things to specify with rules [TS]

  at a bar graph you're serious about you and I getting work and it's like [TS]

  referendum consultants we better hope no one ever listens to this podcast watch [TS]

  this video I think that will end in the right there this is this is establishing [TS]

  are bona fide [TS]

  think this makes us look at how much I think most people will look at it and [TS]

  think boy that looks like a lot of work those guys do a lot of work in the not [TS]

  watch the whole thing that's what I can do just two of them imagine if we gave [TS]

  them the whole government power behind them [TS]

  reconvene hearings be impression impressive miss you we should do let me [TS]

  finish we should figure out how many people said hello and how many votes we [TS]

  got to find out one voter turnout was like and then compared with voter [TS]

  turnout at the New Zealand [TS]

  referendum we compare the probably would have without you think that is very [TS]

  interesting that we would have with that is it is very hard to know how many [TS]

  people actually listen to the podcast like any numbers that we come up with [TS]

  our population numbers will have a huge uncertainty on them right and so would [TS]

  you like a bounded uncertainty here is an interesting one genuinely interesting [TS]

  one person has written their top two choices in flying flag but you can see [TS]

  something is written above it but it is almost entirely obscured by the air mail [TS]

  notice staff I don't know I don't know what do you think about that and what [TS]

  they've written above it is clearly looks like the bottom of white cross [TS]

  yeah but number one i mean will put a picture of this in the shona people have [TS]

  a look at ya if we don't cut it and if we don't lose track of the little sticky [TS]

  or not so yeah I know we'll talk in in all of this will totally be able to find [TS]

  that thats to you later on I'm guessing they put that sticker on this they [TS]

  deliberately do you think they deliberately put that sticker on the [TS]

  stick it back a bit and see what's under can you can you feel it back to me steam [TS]

  it open I see it's not going to come back [TS]

  is not going to come back they're written 43 this is this is an invalid [TS]

  ballots I i'm i'm going to say that this is invalid on the foot to number one [TS]

  this is dennis is someone just messing with us [TS]

  underneath we've been messed with underneath the Alma airmail sticker they [TS]

  have a second number one and other things out of order but the airmail [TS]

  sticker covers it up nice try [TS]

  well they won that one day we caught it they want it if it gets through we don't [TS]

  notice it's true that this is invalid someone has personal information it's [TS]

  written above the votes I think I smell it not a valid that's about it is not a [TS]

  valid by the name of the show but it's an invalid votes this is invalid [TS]

  to me that's a completely found it is invalid he put it in the naughty books [TS]

  because it's an invalid vote because we have rules this is how society is held [TS]

  together we have rules in valid right you write something above the reference [TS]

  therein valid I'm not hard the rules are more like guidelines they were rules the [TS]

  only one that is vaguely a guideline is the material one we will be looking at [TS]

  these postcards again [TS]

  people to have a closer look at some of the things you've done some people have [TS]

  made really creative postcards live home made them and the personal messages on [TS]

  them and we've looked at some of them already but will look more later [TS]

  yeah honestly I should come back up again and we should do something again [TS]

  with this like I do want to look at these in more detail today maybe now is [TS]

  a good time to tell people about my other little project moving on [TS]

  yeah we're gonna play here Brady not letting us basically I'm doing it but [TS]

  I'm doing it will be great in a way that he's not doing any of the work is my [TS]

  favorite way of working with other people we're going to create a separate [TS]

  little blow sort of website and hopefully my plan at the moment but I'm [TS]

  hoping to change my mind every day we're gonna share in dito a postcard that has [TS]

  been sent in to the election [TS]

  look at the picture on the front look at the back of my be funny message that [TS]

  might be funny story it might be from an interesting place in my have a code [TS]

  stamps so I don't know what exactly what the URL is going to be yet to be in the [TS]

  condition it will talk about it again sometime I have a look and keep an eye [TS]

  out for it because if at the moment these postcards just whizzing by talking [TS]

  about them [TS]

  enough to get some of our favorite ones are gonna end up there on this kind of [TS]

  little daily daily website of course I'm not suggesting people go to it every day [TS]

  that would be sure but you can maybe dip in every few weeks and just have a look [TS]

  at what the what the latest ones out there have been added you can go every [TS]

  day [TS]

  definitely should go everyday style but the ending to have new ones going on [TS]

  every day but we'll see how it turns out but basically we don't want all this [TS]

  stuff just to to go to waste we want to we want to showcase some of the great [TS]

  stuff you guys have sent and I i don't like the idea we've been talking about [TS]

  ways that more people can see some of these interesting things and especially [TS]

  you mention this website earlier today and now going through all of it feels [TS]

  even more important that we do something or pulling out some postcards yeah [TS]

  another vote for great peak you can't tell me what to do we can tell you what [TS]

  to do but we can throw in the north of you in the north in fact we're saying [TS]

  that like it's a punishment of it people take loads super excited to be in the [TS]

  know this if you like china is going in just now it seems that we've moved into [TS]

  a different sort of time here it was a bit more popular I was just thinking a [TS]

  similar thing which is that I'm aware of how it feels like boats coming little [TS]

  clusters but of course this is simply a side effect of just going through so [TS]

  many like it would be shocking if they didn't come in clusters like incidences [TS]

  but it it it somehow feels when I get three in a row oh wow that was an [TS]

  interesting little moment then have to remind myself no course it was like [TS]

  you're always going to get three in a row four in a row even five in a row [TS]

  here they just probability let me know I know you know I miss the coincidence [TS]

  ferries hopes exactly what you dreamt it right if you dream of that people that's [TS]

  amazing [TS]

  imagine if you would imagine if you dreamed a dream where a coincidence [TS]

  happens and then you wake up and that's a coincidence happens that day that [TS]

  would be an amazing coincidence in with ya it would be the kind of thing that a [TS]

  person a knowledgeable of statistics might want to draw meaning from [TS]

  you like Niall India's leaders been paid back that's partly because the denial [TS]

  and give Ben has been more packed in so it looks to go every time I think we're [TS]

  making progress I kind of look at what's still to go [TS]

  think wow this is gonna be a boring episode do you think this episode 298 [TS]

  editing grady think we could just leave this uncut I think the best thing to do [TS]

  would be doing that and it a listen listen every out here we have we're [TS]

  going to you do something with the edited version of this but there's no [TS]

  reason on you too we couldn't actually just upload the raw thing of us sorting [TS]

  and counting all of this people can see exactly how long it took and then just [TS]

  think when people watch all the way through we will get dozens and dozens of [TS]

  pennies from the new YouTube red system yeah this price cuts got an awesome [TS]

  piece of a somewhat common thing for people to sort of draw little cavemen [TS]

  and robots but someone has done a really lovely little artistic depiction of us [TS]

  on the moon with Audrey on the moon with us and the nail in gear flag but you [TS]

  recognize that it's the little prince no I don't know what it is you don't know [TS]

  the little prince I think you would know if I showed you the book I K [TS]

  you would definitely know if you saw ok gotten a marriage proposal [TS]

  great i love you will you marry me well so I have already married you're off the [TS]

  market a market where it says here [TS]

  Scarlett Johansson Hollywood California too late to pick up the postcard and it [TS]

  felt a little funny and the person's written hugs and kisses from Belgium but [TS]

  they have made a little origami heart which goes on the inside of this is like [TS]

  a little like a little envelope that they put together [TS]

  I like a lot of postcards of coming with pictures of Susan [TS]

  yeah a lot of people of CCTV reason on their postcards obviously it I'm [TS]

  imagining this one's from Norway Norway's moving kind of a lot of [TS]

  Canadians also this week person he wasn't in the picture of the most [TS]

  looking at a nude lady in the water on my little bit racy an audio postcard but [TS]

  not one person or team in NHL logo too so there you go [TS]

  who would have guessed I've also noticed a few postcards that have got that the [TS]

  chorus that the leaf that you yes yes people to send in pictures of that [TS]

  washingtonDC think now that's a Chicago of course Chicago you obviously haven't [TS]

  watched they tend to talk about legs I have not watched the TED talk about [TS]

  flags we know someday that is the start of that video someday it's still too [TS]

  still open and that's your book would have been moments like Scarlett [TS]

  Johansson has she could have had you should proposed earlier why do you [TS]

  always say Johansson that's because I don't know which is right I never heard [TS]

  anybody say Johansson except you have that kind of a Scandinavian why there [TS]

  was a Formula One driver who I really like I'm not saying that there are [TS]

  people who don't use the Jays the water understand that but wasn't Scarlett [TS]

  Johansson born in America we need to find a video of her saying her own name [TS]

  no I don't know because maybe she's changed it to be a Hollywood already [TS]

  have parents say how they seem then I'm now she gets to decide how her name is [TS]

  pronounced yes but if she changes that she loses her right to tell me off the [TS]

  mispronouncing it a difficult question because then you get people who are just [TS]

  demanded you pronounce the name in a completely unrelated way to the actual [TS]

  letters [TS]

  happens in sports that for two or three years or the British like football [TS]

  commentators will call a foreign player by name and then eventually after two or [TS]

  three years the player will speak to someone in the media and by the way guys [TS]

  you've been getting my name wrong all these years [TS]

  and overnight they would change how they pronounce its really interesting when [TS]

  that happens it is like the Stephen Colbert thing is father pronounces it [TS]

  hurts more than I think it's someone called him like a famous take [TS]

  stop fire attached to your postcard so someone actually sticky tape hot stuff [TS]

  so mister ruthless gray you gonna make that invalid that's fine what role does [TS]

  this break material is not made out of a different material there is no envelope [TS]

  that needs open they've written everything in the right there is no rule [TS]

  that this breaks so if someone had super glued to their postcode which used to [TS]

  counter of course of lines btw [TS]

  and your line is somewhere between a hot stuff for deposed yeah I think there's a [TS]

  nice people's land somewhere between those two will not be using that [TS]

  appreciate that it was sent in I will not be going into election in that going [TS]

  into my coffee is what's happening right another one [TS]

  what's the what's the problem here the problem is they got one of the names [TS]

  technically wrong someone here has voted and their number one is hello Internet [TS]

  logo instead of a child logo and if you don't count now you are ruthless roof [TS]

  lately we're gonna count that we're going to counted because that's what age [TS]

  I stands for and I think you could fairly call that the hello Internet flag [TS]

  and also quite frankly I'm gonna counted because once again the AJ logo boxes so [TS]

  sad [TS]

  let that one slide gonna count on that the move position to reorient your brain [TS]

  thank you but what you trying things as is gonna mess you up to one spot back [TS]

  double [TS]

  cautious kruschev adaptable as hardware too of course [TS]

  counters that phyllis was Army knives it's a catchy but I'm not quite there [TS]

  yet but it works to his secure something controversial for Christmas my wife [TS]

  didn't bother asking what I would like and I have asked for eleven men have a [TS]

  great great brand difference here just just looking at them lightly and I think [TS]

  maybe it's time for me to move from Swiss Army knife to let them in any [TS]

  thoughts on this [TS]

  well we had our Swiss Army knife discussion awhile back the truth is my [TS]

  brain I just group these things together which of course is exactly what the [TS]

  Swiss Army presumably doesn't want to do but to me Swiss Army is like the Kleenex [TS]

  brand I and the only Swiss Army knives I have ever owned [TS]

  are actually Letterman and I have always liked my pic completely different that's [TS]

  like you can't compare let them into a Swiss Army knife I believe I just how [TS]

  last but certainly not least this episode of hello internet is also [TS]

  brought to you by the mighty igloo the internet you will actually like they use [TS]

  that slogan because if you know what an Internet is if you have to use an [TS]

  Internet you almost certainly he your internet it's just some horrible thing [TS]

  from two decades ago at your company that's held together with duct tape is [TS]

  just a mess of files and folders everywhere that you're forced to use [TS]

  because your company makes you let me tell you share the good word of a clue I [TS]

  T department at your company or if you're at the IIT department at your [TS]

  company listening to this right now check out igloo at igloo software dot [TS]

  com slash low igloo allows you to share news organize your files coordinate [TS]

  calendars and manage projects all in one place and includes latest upgrade Viking [TS]

  revolves around documents and how you interact with them gather feedback and [TS]

  make changes they've even added the ability to track who is read critical [TS]

  information to keep everyone on the same page this is an internet is built to be [TS]

  an intern [TS]

  it's not just something that was cobbled together out or whatever was lying [TS]

  around twenty years so if your company has a legacy internet that looks like it [TS]

  was built in the nineties you need to give it a try or you need to bring a [TS]

  clue to the attention of the IIT department at your company go to include [TS]

  software dot com slash hello and you will see the simplicity and good design [TS]

  that awaits you [TS]

  thanks for supporting the show and services if this is the actual way it [TS]

  works or not but from this company that has many people have used to send us a [TS]

  postcard postcard that says dear person click here to write your message from [TS]

  the company that is sending postcards let the haven't filled out the process [TS]

  wondering as did they write this is a joke or did they just forget to actually [TS]

  flip philippi other side I think they forgot to fill in the other side and [TS]

  it's coming from Canada sorry person from Canada and here we go [TS]

  did you want to mention a postcard that is marked received in damaged condition [TS]

  but I think this is a person who actually did this on purpose I think [TS]

  this is an intentionally comically spoiled ballot because it cuts off [TS]

  exactly part of it has been ripped off and it ripped off exactly the number one [TS]

  choice of their votes i think is intentionally spoiled and you can see [TS]

  what they 234 but they have also ripped through the stamp and they risked it not [TS]

  being posted by ripping through the stamp you think the damaged damaged one [TS]

  so maybe is legit and we're actually we have a really interesting question with [TS]

  this yeah because you mister intent because they've written off i've you [TS]

  know what their first one was right there first one was nearly in tears cuz [TS]

  doesn't need any help yet [TS]

  mention they even have a flower for Brady I think maybe this maybe it's [TS]

  legitimate also where did they get that damaged conditions well as received in [TS]

  damaged condition [TS]

  this is that where that New York when I was passing through New York they stand [TS]

  it has received in damaged condition I think this is still valid oh you know it [TS]

  was unbelievable because I think we should make this involved do you think [TS]

  that's being valid you can derive with the first one is there's no [TS]

  no ambiguity about intense I tell you what I tell you why there is ambiguity [TS]

  about the intent [TS]

  it's possible they didn't write a number one it's possible they were taking the [TS]

  mickey out of his number one great take even we don't know what they put his [TS]

  number one you've convinced me you're gonna you're gonna kick my butt I know [TS]

  there's one coming later which is a similar problem that I think we should [TS]

  count but I'll market people can look at a picture of this on the website we're [TS]

  gonna we're not gonna campus one if they were voting voting for knowing you and I [TS]

  think they'll again needs the help anyway here's another one of these these [TS]

  postcards from Taiwan there's like three dimensional and you have to pull leave [TS]

  isn't things to open its gotta get sticky fingers for you it's a very fine [TS]

  I'll and gear so weird people that sort of it looks like a little cardboard seen [TS]

  thin cardboard box with a little paper flap coming out the side show people in [TS]

  the video camera now but when you pull this little paper livre all these extra [TS]

  bits of paper pop out with writing on them I said I think that counts [TS]

  that is just toying with the idea of what a postcard is and just barely [TS]

  slides under do you think people are gonna say this kind of inconsistent [TS]

  attitude we were taken to what counts and get really upset and they're only [TS]

  going to be upset at you because you're the one who's being inconsistent you [TS]

  inconsistent with that damaged when I was in consistence because I realized I [TS]

  was assuming it sent automatically when you raise a totally valid point so I am [TS]

  nothing inconsistent you are the one who does elections by feelings with another [TS]

  misdirected postcard [TS]

  that was intended for Abu how on earth this ended up with us I don't know the [TS]

  address is not not even mildly similar obviously the sorting people in with us [TS]

  that some sorting facility somewhere just got exhausted by postcards and [TS]

  whatever to send the ball on the way I do say that I'm the one who being [TS]

  perfectly consistent you are the one who is not I'm still gonna make you do the [TS]

  final votes on his hand delivery counts I was thinking about it all the way up [TS]

  here and I i cannot come to a conclusion about whether or not handle it recounts [TS]

  if it had been hand deliver it to the correct address and delivered to the [TS]

  address that we would like everyone to send it to my would counter because it [TS]

  was given to you personally I'm inclined to not count even though I suspect it [TS]

  was handed to you by my friend of a city like I still think we can make [TS]

  exceptions just because it's a friend I think your rights I think your acts [TS]

  because it is actually in violating two things right [TS]

  violating the deadline and the delivery as well yeah all right decision made ok [TS]

  great this is great this is this is one of my favorites this is a post card that [TS]

  has been completely matched by the postal service has been ripped apart [TS]

  it's come from California and the us- postal services put in a special plastic [TS]

  bag they put damage to vote but definitely you know when my brain is but [TS]

  here we can clearly see over boats like this is clearly a vote for now we can [TS]

  see ya there is no doubt that's a vote for now and again an ambiguous people [TS]

  who are only listening and not watching the video we will also put some links [TS]

  you look at some of the stuff but here we go here we have a damaged vote again [TS]

  the plastic bags from the British Royal Mail without sincere apologies right now [TS]

  we are sorry that it's autumn has reached you in this condition and when [TS]

  you turn around how hard is ripped in half and it's impossible to tell what [TS]

  they voted for you can tell they voted for flag flag [TS]

  over nail India and China but you don't know anything about yeah you can tell [TS]

  there's anything above this feels like a tragedy it does this vote right someone [TS]

  sent sent in in good faith they sent it from someone called Leben is that a [TS]

  place or is it a comment says leavin in tears can sort of see the front of the [TS]

  posts are there three sad at the real tragedy that one yeah that's just bad [TS]

  luck that's that's our equivalent of the one that went in the air conditioning [TS]

  duct I just wasn't meant to be that person say what that have been a really [TS]

  strong chance of ending up on my special website is a very special one who's this [TS]

  comes from Glendale in Adelaide South Australia England is the suburb of [TS]

  Adelaide in which I was born was its yeah sounds very beautiful the person [TS]

  has written Brady I honestly look for a postcard of the black stump but unless [TS]

  this one is just about fifteen minutes from where I saw the kind of apologize [TS]

  again as if I don't know we're going to actually hit the bullseye more fun than [TS]

  I am of the Blackstone here's one for you if you follow 00 it's a three day of [TS]

  buzz aldrin on the moon as the same that someone is trying to catch your [TS]

  attention we should have had this company that does postcards over the [TS]

  Internet sponsor us every business is a couple of them some of them have been [TS]

  used [TS]

  demo from a system of these are a bit rude [TS]

  eyeballing it look like flying the flag is catching up to club in closets as [TS]

  early second-place contender what would have been nice if we were organized in [TS]

  rich would have been to have each of these fire buckets on a scale so we [TS]

  could watch the weight of them changing [TS]

  alive count kind of mechanism that should the next referendum put it would [TS]

  have been killed but I have to say there are in some ways far fewer intensely [TS]

  spoiled ballots and I would have suspected [TS]

  people want their sacred they want to be part of it of course as I say that I go [TS]

  for a run of life three in the background of my phone that kind of [TS]

  black girls [TS]

  just makes me wonder how many we have missed as intentional things for the [TS]

  other person like I don't think you would have recognized that image as my [TS]

  phone background yeah maybe I might recognize that but I'm sure I'm seeing a [TS]

  lot of other folks are speaking of which he is a professor of ya overnight hang [TS]

  on you have stumbled over a very special place say this postcard which is a photo [TS]

  of me and the professor in the Gulf vote which is a just a postcard I've made to [TS]

  send from parody videos is the postcard I sent to a post books to test that the [TS]

  address so this was like this is a test moment was made into the book so this is [TS]

  the this is the postcard that wasn't intended to be about it was just to make [TS]

  sure the address would so yeah I just let it slide you let it slide but [TS]

  someone wrote year and they'll someone here is sending a really really shoot [TS]

  postcard all about the geology of Utah which is really interesting and has got [TS]

  all this blog space of the bed ridden one leg flare space now utah State at [TS]

  strengthening that's why I'm saying it's it's much closer now between club and [TS]

  causing flight flag will someone has sent in one of those cards that radio [TS]

  hams you know when they contact each other and send like a receipt to say [TS]

  about this I know nothing about the radio enthusiasts when they go on and go [TS]

  hey this is you know bien 43 said you're in sarajevo and they accidentally get to [TS]

  talk to someone in america have like an interaction they've been swapped details [TS]

  and they send each other these special cards about when they had their [TS]

  interaction you collect these postcards from around the world showing you you've [TS]

  spoken to him when I was like a calling card for our economy and you know what [TS]

  there was a comedy who it is but he's like a king he's lucky he was the king [TS]

  of saudi arabia of the king or something and he had a copy which was being a [TS]

  radio enthusiast and sometimes to some normal Joe would talk to [TS]

  someone united by code or sometimes will be by Morse code or just a really small [TS]

  interaction and then when they swapped cars they get their car to be from the [TS]

  king of this country and they didn't realize they've been speaking to this [TS]

  report we have another air post card that came to us which was not to pursue [TS]

  and all of these make me feel bad because then I read this message about [TS]

  how I'm so sorry we missed each other and we need to catch up soon I wanna [TS]

  hear back from you know it's our post box for a while maybe some of those [TS]

  marriage proposals to you have gone to other people's plus books and they think [TS]

  and they don't realize it's a joke they thinking he got a marriage proposal [TS]

  doesn't even know somehow get the feeling that most of the areas where in [TS]

  this direction this is another one of these interesting ones this person I [TS]

  think has filled out their ballot correctly it's become water stained so [TS]

  their numbering of their ballots as being walked away [TS]

  invalid completely valid invalid because because we have the vote for someone put [TS]

  the numbers on the wrong spots number two that on purpose you don't maybe this [TS]

  person did the same thing you cannot assume you cannot assume you order [TS]

  invalid nope no question about it [TS]

  invalid shouldn't even be a hesitation in ballot box it means that much to you [TS]

  feel that the what is it like the common law of this election process that the [TS]

  person holding the ballot makes the final decision that's a perfectly [TS]

  acceptable way to get he's 14 it again I think this is i think is a genuine [TS]

  mistake someone has made their number one [TS]

  fleshy flag flag flag when I could be an auto correct balance the nine wrong not [TS]

  like that though they weren't hello Internet logo [TS]

  you know what [TS]

  you know what [TS]

  and I think you just get some sort of power trip saying they're invalid and [TS]

  you beat me I think big softies your problem [TS]

  counting all of them feel like they're actually really coming down to the end [TS]

  here [TS]

  ok this one this person has been they've sent a postcard saying invalid bad luck [TS]

  with no votes and don't shred this think of the whales as a postcard is a picture [TS]

  of where the only thing stopping me shredding it is the lack of a shredder [TS]

  at the moment I kinda wanna keep them off posterity yeah I was gonna say the [TS]

  lack of a shredder and your natural hoarding tendencies [TS]

  the only thing that prevented shredded I am a hold on my wife is not home when [TS]

  she comes when you win like a parent's walk into the bedroom and the kids have [TS]

  got access to the chocolate and avoid a mess everywhere all over their faces I [TS]

  feel like I will be leaving many points with your wife when she was like oh your [TS]

  party to this leads to naughty kids look around us it's really exciting now that [TS]

  the boxes filled up so much you got a real sense of the proportions of the [TS]

  votes page one that's like it's really coming to come to life as an outline the [TS]

  magnitude of it all and the proportions of it all and other postcards to someone [TS]

  from someone who loves them have it we might have done intentionally wrecked on [TS]

  the family feuds we've caused I wanted it to be really close and I'm a [TS]

  landslide what would be a landslide is only a landslide if you win on what [TS]

  constitutes a landslide [TS]

  informally a landslide win by a pretty large margin so if you if you don't win [TS]

  the first round it can't be a landslide can only be a landslide if you win [TS]

  without the distribution of the distributor and even then I would feel [TS]

  like you would have to be like 60 percent when I look a birthday card D [TS]

  Sarah happy 21st birthday love from Rachel Hughes and breaking my heart I [TS]

  will be returning these [TS]

  postcards to eventually we're going to hand deliver them around town and I [TS]

  think you're with these people or is it part of their story they ended up here [TS]

  but there were no unless you can deliver that's where I feel like the weight of [TS]

  the nightingale ones here is pressing down on the 118 enough to create and now [TS]

  we're gonna get a black hole situation on reflection I wonder if someone would [TS]

  wish to some real time is that too boring thing to upload the it is not the [TS]

  expectation that someone is watching it is the funny part of uploading it to me [TS]

  right like that's the it's like a performance-based yeah right it's it's [TS]

  like the joke of it it's not that I'm expecting someone actually watching us [TS]

  do the whole fact it is the only way people will get to see their own vote go [TS]

  in tho yeah because otherwise you know we're doing it sped up so I think we [TS]

  definitely a blow the whole thing was just doing i think thats wins the [TS]

  biggest postcard we've got so far and of course it goes into your hands and [TS]

  you're totally accept what you think it's not acceptable and I have nothing [TS]

  that is not acceptable but just seems like of course you get this one great [TS]

  I'm putting into your and let's see where you put it now if you feel that it [TS]

  is a couple more handfuls of these things good things about stopping at the [TS]

  box in very mildly don't don't think I'm getting carried away but I'm very mildly [TS]

  feeling the emotion I felt like I want to run a half marathon which was due for [TS]

  me unlike coming down the final straight you feel this motion also when you when [TS]

  I first time I went to Everest you finally get back to the finally ended [TS]

  the trick you know your last hotel you can get to go home soon you will get [TS]

  quite overcome by emotion I'm feeling a mild version of that the moment which [TS]

  has just been completely scuppered by this is postcards and California of a [TS]

  naked man this is what the internet is is great at the internet is for horsing [TS]

  around [TS]

  concentrate on these final steps grand make a mistake this when you get [TS]

  careless [TS]

  coming down the mountain the dangerous time [TS]

  complacency sets in the finish lines inside one false step which is gonna [TS]

  overnight and given 21 books only thanks to your diligent compacting I cannot [TS]

  believe the number of misdirected pieces of mail it worrying is it really is my [TS]

  last one [TS]

  my last one comes from the University of Montana and it is a vote for white cross [TS]

  my last one is mailed from the United Kingdom has a picture of the Red Room in [TS]

  the White House and it is for healing gear the sort is complete we have five [TS]

  boxes of votes in front of us plus the red naughty box with all the mishaps [TS]

  clearly ireland gear is like the most full even with the clever compact him [TS]

  liking it is still by far the biggest fear is the biggest winner hii logo was [TS]

  the biggest loser flagging flagging public laws need counting their very [TS]

  close and white cross is the fourth fourth place a child logo looks like [TS]

  it's going to be the first eliminated if if they even comes to that if it comes [TS]

  to that will have to find out how to count mountain time I've bought these [TS]

  cool little counters so gonna sort of put them into the groups of 10 and [TS]

  counting or something maybe one of these things that we realize very quickly that [TS]

  we don't know what we're doing but our initial thought anyway is yet to try to [TS]

  back them into ten and on the clicker do 10 at a time ok and how they chant [TS]

  H sort of around the world of tents and then combine at two numbers right where [TS]

  you do your thing I'll do my thing in the first three months of 1020 campaign [TS]

  to your number in your head you think about that stuff now man had enough I [TS]

  just don't know how to count without hearing about the podcast I'm counting [TS]

  numbers in my head it a lot harder to talk to the year we're doing this I mean [TS]

  you realize I am i cant cuz I have to hear the number yeah podcasting ever [TS]

  created [TS]

  yes it is like the sound of clicks intimately space people are gonna love [TS]

  it tell me these clickers when a good purchase the best I was thinking all use [TS]

  a tally up on my phone but there's obviously a bazillion times better [TS]

  here's my first miscount on [TS]

  clause in the wrong box so we found one in the wrong books I made you notice [TS]

  that you are you not looking at the photo you do this very closely the [TS]

  minute you told me to do I found one miscount found a flag a flag in Ireland [TS]

  ebooks and another 11 of us had a brain fade from there looking to watch the [TS]

  videos back and check out would have been someone well I guarantee someone at [TS]

  some point will notice something we did wrong I take it one floor with the post [TS]

  cuts because they're all different sizes and textures it does make this part [TS]

  quite hard I can imagine a whole new ballot papers of the same it's a lot [TS]

  easier to count so yeah it's surprisingly hard to manage the [TS]

  different sizes of it definitely makes it much trickier hot and sweaty work [TS]

  this thing called podcasting work you end up sweating when you do not always a [TS]

  sweaty disgusting mess up the podcasters and take a shower so I counted [TS]

  880 how many of you up bro 930 1810 votes [TS]

  carry the 129 goes to attend goes to 181 is this why do you have a one of their [TS]

  thing there is right that was carrying it ok that's right isn't it yeah that's [TS]

  right right so niland gear 1810 votes on some reason the other boxes so that [TS]

  might slightly adjustable that ready but that's the benchmark so great and I've [TS]

  counted the dialogue is it fell apart of my man what you want me to do it got a [TS]

  hold of the new box here I want you to be more careful not shown these [TS]

  postcards quite as much respect as I'd like becoming Mr fancypants I am upset [TS]

  about going through them again start to see some really nice post cut mister [TS]

  first yeah there were there were a whole bunch that I wanted to stop him a [TS]

  comment but no time and I had a couple of yours obviously obviously spoiled [TS]

  ballots but you still accepted [TS]

  next probably club in Clause laws and I give him some suspicions about how will [TS]

  be sorted them so I feel like it's it's good to pay extra close attention yet [TS]

  the very fact that they switch positions suspicious to be ok so keep an eye out [TS]

  wrong votes here [TS]

  ok don't forget to reset you count up the sound of professionalism that's [TS]

  about as you pull them up just just just just keep them straight from the hook [TS]

  put them in the drop the man is how close to the have to be for thinking the [TS]

  same thing because you know we might be 330 votes out here all 16 [TS]

  it is it is very possible that our margin of error is a hundred plus or [TS]

  minus like with the with the counters with all the regular counting yeah so in [TS]

  theory we were doing a LAN election and and the vote was within like two hundred [TS]

  I would think that would like on a proportionally society election that [TS]

  would be a recount kind of situation yet but I have to go home at some points [TS]

  910 number so that his club enclosed countered and are countered 360 357 [TS]

  hundred and ten [TS]

  massive difference is gonna go to preferences [TS]

  well if you figure this is almost half that right but common cause and flying [TS]

  flag probably have about the same and then plus the final two is gonna be [TS]

  closed all right said it reminded an island near 1810 clubbin closed seven [TS]

  hundred and ten now we're going to have a look at flag flag flag man what you [TS]

  mean what's with me just put him in either I put him in the way I put him in [TS]

  we got counting to do the counting is the thing you've got a range and [TS]

  afterwards doesn't end there could be a recount and if there was a wreck and [TS]

  you'll be wishing you didn't know if there's a recount I'll be coming up [TS]

  tomorrow will bring a divorce lawyer with our weekend in 2010 course you're [TS]

  getting divorced [TS]

  interesting and it feels important but it's less fun that's kind of how I try [TS]

  to arrange life so we've just finished flag flag I'm adding 400 400 400 exactly [TS]

  suspiciously but truly exactly I 804 flag but while doing that we found to [TS]

  incorrectly sorted votes for nail in here so no longer has gone up by a mere [TS]

  to that tally which makes a 1812 and flag flag 800 which gives at second [TS]

  place over club enclose a further 90 back on seven hundred and ten if we had [TS]

  together flag flag and club and close we come to 1510 still three hundred votes [TS]

  and if the other two candidates white cross and a child though ago surpassed [TS]

  300 we are going to go to preferences [TS]

  they don't surpassed 300 I think the interesting thing here as well is that [TS]

  flag flag included a clause had some kind of time variance in the voters [TS]

  because club in Clause and flag flag switch places like clubbin clause in the [TS]

  beginning really started out strong and flag flag over took it and I don't know [TS]

  which way it was like a switch box boxes we counts will be going backwards right [TS]

  but there was there was some time variance in voter preference between [TS]

  those two something may have happened on red or something may have happened onto [TS]

  motivated voters who knows who knows well we missed [TS]

  we just found condition when we just found an extra vote for flag flag taking [TS]

  it up to eight hundred and one not 800 reasonably you thought that was neat [TS]

  terrible wow you love that you are Mr fussy britches about the whole area you [TS]

  like some kind of animal we need Waycross next cross this is a child [TS]

  labor costs I think it might not matter if it's going to come down to the wire [TS]

  though does time to count white cross get distracted driving in swamp n stamp [TS]

  on it throughout my counts stop this is not the time to joking don't make me [TS]

  think that is not the time for joking that's exactly the time we finished the [TS]

  white cross be quicker obviously with less of its I have one hundred and sixty [TS]

  146 so that is a total of three hundred and six cross so we are going to [TS]

  preference we are gonna preferences if you combine flag flag clubbing clothes [TS]

  white cross it actually surpasses niland gear we still haven't even counted I [TS]

  just ordered the disclosure is like too short and they're not supposed to get a [TS]

  couple short it's like yes I literally too short I think I'm sorry but I think [TS]

  I think despite the unpopularity of a child logo I think we have more than [TS]

  five votes for it [TS]

  hii logo for ensuring that we go to one round of preferences so just to recap [TS]

  dialing gear is out in front but the next three which flag flag clubbing [TS]

  clothes and white cross combined actually still photo 5 sure year but we [TS]

  have got the actual logo votes to count which will put those bottom for combined [TS]

  above niland a child [TS]

  counties ones up growing reset your counters [TS]

  can't ever going to be delirious on a sea of people has been a child logo is [TS]

  countered I had 85 9474 each other guy writes so have you calculate that you're [TS]

  fine let's see how many total votes there were like a place together for me [TS]

  grow near 1812 flag flag 801 clubbin clause seven hundred and ten white cross [TS]

  three hundred and six hii logo 174 3800 and three votes total ok now what [TS]

  percentage did you get to that divided by that [TS]

  112 by 33 47.6% of the vote now in a first past the post election to be game [TS]

  over we will be finished the game is not over the game is not over [TS]

  we have one round of preferences to distribute and then to see where we are [TS]

  but we have been roped into moving Christmas tree correct I don't know if [TS]

  we have to move the Christmas tree yet but we do need stop going after a brief [TS]

  break in moving a Christmas tree way back and we have found we missed 18 [TS]

  child logo vote it had a crack so to speak said that is added into the HID [TS]

  logo tally which he still keeps it firmly in last place but its 175 the [TS]

  actual number takes the overall number of votes to 3,800 and forward by our [TS]

  reckoning niland gear has fallen 91 or 92 92 91 votes shy of having over 50% [TS]

  and being winner so now we take last-place HMO go [TS]

  distribute references redistribute references to think everyone listening [TS]

  pop understands how this works or should we need to explain this or is this [TS]

  common knowledge I think very briefly we can just say that we're going to do is [TS]

  now look at the second choice of all of the ballots some of the votes I i do I [TS]

  have noticed already people haven't listened to second choice so if that's [TS]

  the case that balances just discarded right it doesn't it doesn't count [TS]

  anymore in the election and yeah the question isn't nearly a year can get [TS]

  ninety of the second preference votes of this match wins and if not then we go to [TS]

  another round of preferences do you think people listening might be thinking [TS]

  well whoever voted for a child logo has gone from a loser to now being the most [TS]

  powerful virtues of oh they seem to have overpower their second choice is to [TS]

  decide the whole election this is precisely how this is always represented [TS]

  22 elections yet but yes that's why it is called an instant runoff vote is that [TS]

  in theory I what this is simulating is doing an election multiple times over [TS]

  multiple stages where you say we are eliminating the last candidate and now [TS]

  we're gonna run the whole election again of the top four but we're not going to [TS]

  do that that's what instant runoff is just simulating is eliminating the route [TS]

  the worst person or the the one with the fewest number of votes and acting as [TS]

  though the whole election is taking place again without that person there is [TS]

  an accurate assumption that if we were to run again with just the four [TS]

  candidates now be a flag fly club [TS]

  cross that all the people would vote the same way except the HID logo voters I [TS]

  mean you in some sense you can say you know for sure it wouldn't always happen [TS]

  precisely the same way because time is a lapsing right and people can change [TS]

  their minds so you there is like a small amount of accuracy that you are losing [TS]

  for a vast game of time [TS]

  alright so here they hoi votes [TS]

  so for example I'm taking one out and its second choice was clubbin closed so [TS]

  I'm putting gonna put that in a little sub pile for clubbing clothes and will [TS]

  do this for all the hii votes [TS]

  looking at their second preference nail in gear started to get some of those all [TS]

  important ninety that desires are a lot more reading this time right now you [TS]

  have to think about it was you distribute them now and he's doing ok it [TS]

  is getting a lot of references this person hasn't put a second preference on [TS]

  their vote so there is also discuss what you thinkin great how's it looking [TS]

  the truth is I i'm having to focus a tremendous amount of looking at the [TS]

  second please I'm having a hard time thinking anything else it seems broadly [TS]

  to be following the trend of the overall election which is what I would expects [TS]

  but we will have to wait until the final count it seems sure to say this is my [TS]

  virgin preferential vote distribution way I find it very exciting [TS]

  everything I hoped it would be but you never run an election like this and it's [TS]

  cool it's good so I do the approval voting their finances good wish it would [TS]

  go to another round I don't know if you don't want to ever end reading that i'm [TS]

  ok great set of preferences have been distributed everyone who voted for a [TS]

  child they go we've looked at their second choice and attributed them to the [TS]

  other fled corrects now first of all in my hand at the moment [TS]

  other votes of the people who voted for a child though he didn't specify second [TS]

  preference but wanted a child logo or nothing bad luck to them is 12345678 of [TS]

  them now the next thing with looking at is how many white cross people white [TS]

  crosses in fourth place how many of the HRI does have they picked up and [TS]

  preferences 123456789 10 + 10 taking the white cross total up to three hundred [TS]

  and sixteen now clubbing clothes [TS]

  was on 710 in third place a good 91 votes behind flag flag how many of the [TS]

  preference votes did that did clubbing clothes pick up to make up some ground [TS]

  didn't do well I felt like it was doing well but but it quickly counted 31 [TS]

  get their team some really yeah so there's an extra 44 votes [TS]

  clubbing clothes taking clubbin close up to seven hundred and fifty-four flag [TS]

  flag eight hundred and one over a year I think it's gonna need a miracle here but [TS]

  let's say I had 21 great did you have 16 so there's another thirty-seven [TS]

  flag taking it up to 838 how many preferences didn't get if it got more [TS]

  than ninety it's the winner if it doesn't get more than ninety we will [TS]

  need to distribute the preferences of our fourth place holder which is why I [TS]

  cross so we need to see denying year get that ninety issued earnings were gone I [TS]

  got 3145 that 76 so that takes the total for naming gear to 1888 the question is [TS]

  that more than half with the eliminated voters ok this is quickly to do some [TS]

  math subject so we need to now add up the total for nailing gear leggy flag [TS]

  clubbing clothes and white cross and basically those eight people whose vote [TS]

  count for nothing now right I gonna be coming off the tally right so i'll read [TS]

  you the type that totals for the four leading flag ok go to so many people [TS]

  will not be listening to the podcast amor [TS]

  just some people have pens and notepads [TS]

  be following this like crazy now India [TS]

  white flag flag eight hundred and thirty-eight clubbin closed seven 5454 [TS]

  Whitecross three hundred and sixteen 16 the total valid ballots counted is 3796 [TS]

  what you would need to win would be you would need to win 1898 ballots to win so [TS]

  here is 10 [TS]

  has not yet to the first distribution of preferences receive the necessary [TS]

  majority in gear is being the Zeno's paradox of this is going to get closer [TS]

  and closer maybe we need to distribute what do you sell disappointed this is [TS]

  exciting but fled you flag clubbing clothes on what cross-country illicitly [TS]

  come back from here can I they can if nobody votes for nail and gears we now [TS]

  have all of the white cross votes [TS]

  this is all the people that put white crosses their first preference plus the [TS]

  pic plus the HID logo people who have by default ended up voting for white cross [TS]

  and we're gonna start redistributing things but as soon as he gets ten we [TS]

  know that it went we know that it wins it cannot win and then so we can stop [TS]

  for the night [TS]

  rights and you can get a train home we stopped going to start stop with these I [TS]

  guess let's keep an island you want to order them so they were first when I put [TS]

  out tonight knowing morning and another 18 more needed than the first one for me [TS]

  seven more needed 4616 more the other 15 more needed for mailing in close up of [TS]

  course making a leg flag flag flag for symmetrical year years ago now it is a [TS]

  23456789 he needs three more I've got one more for now here I don't know if [TS]

  it's gonna make it man [TS]

  now hang on before this is this person who voted for white cross this second [TS]

  preference was a child logo which it can't go into it cannot go to this third [TS]

  preference is nailing here and it goes in a linear and I'll use when the [TS]

  election is that the tampon that's ten I'm stan had to distribute 14 of white [TS]

  crosses an island near 23 Clore 56789 10 citizens of hello Internet you have your [TS]

  flag the nail and gear [TS]

  flag the nail and gear [TS]

  ok everyone the moment has arrived have jumped in the car going to the train [TS]

  station to pick up CGP grey because today we are counting the votes let's [TS]

  get this show on the road Bristol train station pickup growing and then the [TS]

  adventure really begins so I left the house in a bit of a hurry surplus price [TS]

  and I'm a bit disorganized heist and I just realized I haven't got the money [TS]

  that I would like to have to pay for parking and crossing the Clifton [TS]

  suspension bridge so I'm gonna ring gray and I'm imagining great not the sort of [TS]

  guy he's gonna have coins on him but because he's at the train station I'm [TS]

  just saying he might be able to get some coins before I may say will give them a [TS]

  call and say you can help us guessing you don't leave a voicemail discounted [TS]

  never checked daily voice-mail this account is never checked like everyone [TS]

  arriving at Bristol Temple maids train station it's quite a beautiful station [TS]

  actually from the exterior if you if you have a look at pictures of it will visit [TS]

  it's not much to look at inside really nice for a pretty driving up to it now [TS]

  and see if gray has arrived and we'll see if you got those coins it's an [TS]

  historical day as it is is a historical or historic [TS]

  for the grammar patents whatever it is you take that so I can drive to store [TS]

  its rights rolling rolling it was good to see is good just nice to see you did [TS]

  you get the coins yes I got the coins are you did you did you find that having [TS]

  to handle so the thing we're going to do now is go to the post box to get the [TS]

  last remaining votes [TS]

  so we pulled up in Clifton near the postbox now a whole bunch of the votes [TS]

  in the post cards already in my house but the last couple of weeks worth we're [TS]

  about to pick up grade is going to be your first time even saying I've never [TS]

  seen them in person this is really exciting to say that I have more to say [TS]

  when I see them you on the other hand you been spoiling yourself you be [TS]

  looking at the post cards so you have like an exciting idea of exactly what's [TS]

  there but for me this is all the unknown so he's in a better position 'cause i [TS]

  say more excited say follow your talk about not spoiling things I feel like I [TS]

  am more excited I feel like I didn't spoil it by looking at them led 3d 3d [TS]

  you know he's filled with childish excitement and everything I am i dont [TS]

  have my key i cut twenty-eight yes she could save up to tonight we're recording [TS]

  recording me coming to pick them up say you're actually holding post cards in [TS]

  your hand now and we'll have you guys been thinking about receiving all these [TS]

  postcodes it's pretty interesting didn't even know any this is about keeping from [TS]

  you can't read mio that would be unprofessional we're doing a vote but [TS]

  deciding where official flags gonna be five candidates so everyone is sending [TS]

  in their votes as to what they want a dislike to be anyone listening to Lady [TS]

  here mailboxes is sorting through the last post cards that have made it but [TS]

  deadlines technically these haven't made up by deadline but that's the way that [TS]

  works [TS]

  tell people the day before so these lucky people are just getting in as my [TS]

  driver's license cuz I have got my case and you can see the time that I may [TS]

  provide any projects though the podcast like this is that these are obviously we [TS]

  could be discussing have black have similar voices [TS]

  steal the vote for the election to sing a break-in great voices about three [TS]

  weeks is that the settlement heist oh my god that looks heavy I think we can [TS]

  manage look at the whole how it's gonna be a long day accounting as you said you [TS]

  got you got like to take more but this one's begin this once again is a very [TS]

  impressive to see in person and we have to read every single message is that it [TS]

  you happy just checking oh and there's a big possible for us to sign some of his [TS]

  personal you know what I want covered a trial stacy journals and I cover the [TS]

  trial by a guy he got blown up by a possible and the last thing he said [TS]

  before he opened it was like this isn't a bomb and they pulled open and it was a [TS]

  bomb serious story yeah that's everything you will get some more but it [TS]

  will taper off now until we do another one of those acts were back in the gray [TS]

  tried to get in the wrong side as I do every time so even after all this time [TS]

  your default side as the Americans are so before we go home and start but we [TS]

  weren't even going home to get some supplies before we do that there's a [TS]

  special trade ya but driving over the Clifton suspension bridge oh wow it's a [TS]

  mighty handsome bridge you need to give me a parent I need to give you a pound [TS]

  this is why I have coins and try to get them out of my pocket under the sea [TS]

  pearl quick I don't like time pressure boundary happy with the recorder leaned [TS]

  across me so we can get the sound of the coin going into the bucket ok it's [TS]

  exciting this is the sound of crossing Clifton suspension bridge here comes the [TS]

  tobacco and pulling up there guys [TS]

  we're on we're very excited to talk as driving over yeah this is a bridge and [TS]

  we are driving across its narrow it is quite narrow actually that's like this [TS]

  guy has weed to close the cyclists are squishy cars that the problems like so [TS]

  much higher on the bridge that looks before you get on tape that's why it's a [TS]

  popular the suicides of how long it takes and representative hello internet [TS]

  before death comes up as a topical attentively it's important well we're [TS]

  across you can press the red button on the front I think everything is ready [TS]

  for this monumental occasion this is the biggest gonna go so far how many people [TS]

  of all these pieces of equipment I suddenly know why they feel so nervous [TS]

  when they like send people into space and this has been like sending a man [TS]

  into space [TS]

  yeah so we are filming this but for most people hopefully they're listening to a [TS]

  podcast so great you can tell people where we are going on we're in this [TS]

  amazingly now that I look at look at this amazing Lee amateurish contraption [TS]

  looks it looks amazingly impressive we are in your house in your kitchen [TS]

  because it is the biggest table that is available and we have [TS]

  have five plastic containers in front of us each labeled with one of the flag [TS]

  names and we have three very large boxes of postal ballots to go through and [TS]

  we're gonna start sorting and counting [TS]

  very shortly there's actually a sixth plastic container because there is a red [TS]

  one to my left which is like the container of doing writes that will be [TS]

  well balanced guard that are either deliberately being a nuisance people [TS]

  people giving us a hard time that's the naughty books deliberately or not my [TS]

  shirt is still nowhere can send their boarding the shredder for now but they [TS]

  going in the red naughty books over to the left has its gonna work we started [TS]

  grabbing handfuls and start sorting the thing that makes this difficult [TS]

  obviously we're all about the voting the 123 the Preferences that's where that's [TS]

  what's important but the problem is almost every one of these postcards has [TS]

  an interesting face to earth and almost every one of these postcards has little [TS]

  letters or notes or drawings or dismissal personalization that are quite [TS]

  cute but there's probably I'm guessing this like maybe over 3,000 of them and [TS]

  this is a bit like you know when you do a spring cleaning yet but you don't like [TS]

  your life is one big spring lane but whenever I do a spring clean and I'm [TS]

  sent to a room and I'm Tom Brady go into their room and decide what you gonna [TS]

  throw away I spent like an hour looking at each think I can imagine that sort of [TS]

  thing is earlier today when he first picked up all these postcards and we [TS]

  just went to grab a quick coffee I did a quick calculation to figure out how long [TS]

  is it gonna take us to sort them based on its three thousand postcards and do [TS]

  some calculations and while I was sitting here have been you set up [TS]

  everything watching it it did occur to me like wait a minute I'm counting with [TS]

  Brady and I did all of my calculations based on two seconds per votes but I'm [TS]

  gonna be like this one from this one's got pretty picture let's talk about this [TS]

  potential yeah my feeling was like ok two seconds per seems reasonable boom [TS]

  boom boom boom boom get the ball end but as they were sitting out of course [TS]

  that's not the way it actually gonna go [TS]

  you are going to advocate a bit of ruthlessness I am going to advocate [TS]

  moving a lot and we can always talk about many postcards it's so many in [TS]

  person that's the thing it's so many in person yeah so we're going to we're [TS]

  going to we're not exactly sure what's going to happen today we're going to [TS]

  start counting and I feel that you are going to be the force of slow witness [TS]

  and I'm going to be the force of wickedness and somewhere in between we [TS]

  will meet so for people who are you can't see the camera shots cuz [TS]

  Brian are taking handfuls of ballots and postcards out of the cardboard boxes in [TS]

  which they have been transported to my house and we're just gonna be throwing [TS]

  them into either leggy flag club in close White Cross Island gear or H i [TS]

  logo any predictions this is the one thing we haven't done I'm not gonna make [TS]

  a prediction because you know I've been looking into many ballots I have too [TS]

  much information you get a prediction results I I really don't have a [TS]

  prediction I'm going to leave my my mind open like I said I am going to just [TS]

  accept the will of the people I don't have i don't have a strong gets about [TS]

  which is going to be the winner [TS]

  well the first ballot number one that are pulled out which is a postcard of a [TS]

  rock everybody I promise it's a postcard which seems to be some picture of Iraq [TS]

  and I can't even tell where it's coming from one of these automatically [TS]

  generated by the entire which a lot of people that it is a vote for leggy flag [TS]

  number one they did put a number to cross number three a child like a number [TS]

  for now but people have to a number of people have to understand that there are [TS]

  references but their first vice flag flag into the flag flag being you go [TS]

  alright my first one is from Sheboygan Wisconsin a lovely picture of an autumn [TS]

  scene and a road in Wisconsin seems to be written in comic sans that's what we [TS]

  got on the back it is nail and gears as their first choice and they've written a [TS]

  little message [TS]

  told you something about Sheboygan Sheboygan Sheboygan is home to the [TS]

  world's tallest symbol of freedom a flagpole 400 feet high with a flag to [TS]

  match its not put little one of these little monkeys on the right now just so [TS]

  that I can remember this was your first Grand I've got these little stickers and [TS]

  we're gonna put them on postcards that catch our eye and we'll tell you about [TS]

  that later maybe now and give ok so we're not gonna do that for every vote [TS]

  let's let's go get a glass of water I'm already distracted though I'm actually [TS]

  really good haven't even looked at them as the fancy science thing looks like [TS]

  from the Science Museum somewhere see the thing you have to decide when you [TS]

  sorting great which is hard [TS]

  is do you hold them say you're just looking at the back or do you look at [TS]

  the pretty pictures on the front foot it's all mixed up it's all mixed up we [TS]

  should have gotten is your nephew to come in and flip them all in the same [TS]

  direction for us so we should have had him do I would've been smart even at [TS]

  this very early stage a lot of them seem to be going into nail and gear and club [TS]

  and mailing you a common cause I definitely the two early contenders [TS]

  right now like flag is really early like this is interesting I mean we have no we [TS]

  have no wonder at the white cross and eat I flag I know we've sorted 30 here's [TS]

  something interesting and I imagine we'll see if you have these here is [TS]

  someone who has not put any votes on the back of their postcard and I've just [TS]

  written a rent to us and basically what they're saying in a nutshell is that [TS]

  they're upset that we didn't give them and none of the above option and what [TS]

  I'm gonna do with this particular one is something sticker on it I would say and [TS]

  this goes into the the naughty be and it's our first ninety one that read [TS]

  being in new guy imagine going to a few wrong 'cause we're talking at the same [TS]

  time this is something we wanted as well as what is what is the percentage error [TS]

  rates not gonna be 0 going to be non-zero some people have sent in like [TS]

  this postcard I'm holding about the world's largest Pelican which is at [TS]

  Pelican Rapids Minnesota and the thing I like about it is this is an old [TS]

  looks like it's from the seventies yeah but very few people have sent in vintage [TS]

  postcards and I'm very bloody can even see the pencil written price from the [TS]

  antique store ready to toss to people who sent in antique postcards and that [TS]

  goes into naming I just got the first white cross we still have not had any [TS]

  for a child feel sorry for a tie logo at the start your first one Ferriero the [TS]

  first one for a child Lego has come from Porto in Portugal best regards from to [TS]

  university students in Porto it says and they have voted for a while ago someone [TS]

  here on this post card I have had written their votes and they've been [TS]

  crossed them all out and voted again they've they've changed the change the [TS]

  order so they really testing me but how they voted them is the top 10 clubbing [TS]

  clothes that crossed out they initially pet number one is nailing gear but [TS]

  clearly changed club can I get a can I get an umpire's decision here that is a [TS]

  14 club and climb gonna say that the one for ya think so and you go we're not [TS]

  really looking at the pictures very much that's gonna be a job for another day I [TS]

  imagine we have we have our first death related post cards all is vanity and a [TS]

  skull and the person who sent us this morbid skull postcard who voted for they [TS]

  have voted for sale and gear [TS]

  price is a nice hand-drawn hand drawn once someone has hastily whi logo and if [TS]

  you don't know that they did it hastily that might have taken hours if that took [TS]

  them hours [TS]

  announced Wednesday night and gear we've hardly made a dent in my job box one of [TS]

  three but nailing gear on putting down as my early leader thing with elections [TS]

  is that inferior a subset a random subset of the votes should give you the [TS]

  same result as the whole thing but we're going to count them all together we both [TS]

  we both at the same time we go at the same time we've both pulled out [TS]

  postcards that people have made that made their post cut the flag they voted [TS]

  for making a nice and clear on a few people have done that it's a nice touch [TS]

  as well [TS]

  ago at Las actually gets another 100 and another one it's having a search nice [TS]

  post cut in from Houston I always liked it quite a few spacey themed post cuts [TS]

  coming childlike special place in my people know that pandering this one has [TS]

  a lovely portrait of you and I on the back which is another thing a lot of [TS]

  people have taken to drawing pictures of us only question with this early voting [TS]

  is if there's any kind of time dependency on the voting as we are [TS]

  sorting boats in reverse chronological order right because this is a box of [TS]

  picked up today [TS]

  yeah these are the most recent votes so we'll find out if there's any kind of [TS]

  time by us [TS]

  yeah and whether there's any sort of clustering and I got a letter letter for [TS]

  you [TS]

  someone has written a letter written to Mr period will put that is made we will [TS]

  put that to one side for now we we told people letters wouldn't be counters [TS]

  votes if there's a vote on their flags having a little surged ahead over there [TS]

  a child I think we're going to eliminate anything first is probably gonna be that [TS]

  one after your little introduction you said I was going to be a slow down the [TS]

  stretch and I'm surprising myself but he'll undistracted I am and I'm just [TS]

  looking at the votes of our first single preference vote there someone just [TS]

  chillin gears or nothing they want under the rules every time I try logo comes up [TS]

  I feel like little 3046 great one thing that came up a few times we sort of [TS]

  speaking in the sticker [TS]

  we're working at the same time is another another sealed letter it says [TS]

  this is not a vote but please open we'll see about that in fact that no one [TS]

  should go in the Redbox the naughty box we have gone from the lender jours [TS]

  someone's drawn acutely to Chi Chi audrey is here watching us to the vote [TS]

  by the way people basically great spent the whole time I was sitting up the [TS]

  cameras in the sound system [TS]

  playing with Audrey I did so Gregor the thing I was starting to say was a lot of [TS]

  people that were against white cross [TS]

  because they felt it was it had like bad connotations or look for the socialists [TS]

  and I were talking about swastikas and also it's a rubbish did you did you ever [TS]

  feel anything about what crossing I think that's just silliness myself all [TS]

  that stuff each flag is like its own its own thing like you give it the meaning [TS]

  that it is going to have ya trying to sort this stuff is surprisingly harder [TS]

  than you think it is trying to go fast and sort them correctly and kind of [TS]

  looking at the interesting things I'm not even looking at the interesting even [TS]

  looking at where they're from what the pictures I that's for another day I [TS]

  guess you have things that are going to leave my house on that and I thought I [TS]

  was going to bring them back I don't think I'd let you leave with them even [TS]

  if you beg attached to them that I came here my pickup truck load of the back [TS]

  with postcards that will keep with me for the rest of my life [TS]

  moved from house to house as time goes on we haven't even made a dent in the [TS]

  first box gonna wear as well don't wanna like us but that's not gonna waste at a [TS]

  place where is all the one is very nice we do not have time for that right now [TS]

  we have an unusual material 10 yes this is made from very thin bode very thin [TS]

  piece of almost like very simple soared [TS]

  very interesting with this come from where's that come from those that come [TS]

  from a country that is what it looks like Latvia or something but where's [TS]

  Vilnius Vilnius I have no idea don't flag flag it's an unusual material but [TS]

  I'll allow it [TS]

  yeah now the votes are in we don't have to deter people anymore right thing it's [TS]

  what we didn't want to get was gigantic one made of aluminum or anything like [TS]

  that [TS]

  yeah now here is an interesting thing rate this is a side effect of the [TS]

  process we've gone through because when we went and picked up the postcards [TS]

  today we we saw the people at the post center there were almost a bit [TS]

  overwhelmed by how much they were having to sort you need I wouldn't say they [TS]

  were almost overwhelmed they seem they seem quite completely and as a result we [TS]

  seem to have here in the box occasionally letters and things that [TS]

  aren't even meant [TS]

  us why they meant for other post boxes or other addresses so I'm going to put [TS]

  these ones in the North CBN and return the keys to the mailbox center so they [TS]

  can go to the proper recipients are you sure you don't want to separate them [TS]

  somewhere else we can have that many in the notice alright alright like this one [TS]

  some of the times do calligraphy for their vote that's not to say that i very [TS]

  nice thank you very much Its a flag flag maybe people who are more calligraphy [TS]

  oriented address their old fashioned are drawn to flag flag which is clearly the [TS]

  most old-fashioned of the flags I think we have a very high correlation so far [TS]

  with calligraphy and flag flag votes it's a one-to-one correlation gearbox is [TS]

  definitely the most quickly question is if this continues if nailing gear keeps [TS]

  that Slade will it's laid be sufficient to survive the first runoff when we [TS]

  start distributing preferences [TS]

  that's that's why these things are interesting is it is it may well be that [TS]

  like just as in real elections there's one group that is not the majority but [TS]

  is very clearly focused and everybody else is spread out between different [TS]

  choices that's pretty common when you look at real elections that there's one [TS]

  group that wants one thing or nothing when that happens great when one person [TS]

  sort of concentrates and the rest is quite spread is a common for the person [TS]

  who has that first-round lead to get pegged back on preferences I don't have [TS]

  any data to back it up but I can't just say that the thing that I have looked at [TS]

  it seems that in many countries in many elections it's one groups together large [TS]

  group and then a number of groups that are split but would all prefer each [TS]

  other to the one leading command so they can pinch victory from that from that [TS]

  first round but it may be possible that nailing years gets very few second [TS]

  preference votes [TS]

  well some this once in one hand Lata likes my star because they have typed [TS]

  their vote in the postcard is Checkpoint Charlie the famous and on the back they [TS]

  have typed them vote and then they have typed note to us and at the very end [TS]

  they say sadly my typewriter does not have a flower emoji but I can do an [TS]

  interrobang [TS]

  you can manually doing it and I've always had to rewind do that just to [TS]

  show you how much I love typewriters for people who happen to be watching this [TS]

  they did vote for now and discipline I'm here just to show you [TS]

  within reach of where we are doing this account I have a typewriter on the [TS]

  camera the typewriter right here I do love a good time proud of its hard work [TS]

  sorting votes I just just crossed my activity goal for the day according to [TS]

  my up a lot of very happy now down there we go [TS]

  jazz know you're much classier than me it's never the argument in which we have [TS]

  a piece of spam [TS]

  oh yeah we have that's not even meant for us it's just a piece of junk mail [TS]

  that's very much going on the naughty been i've covered a few elections over [TS]

  the years and I was an election for the Adelaide City Council I was sort of [TS]

  there in the room although doing this I was sorting all the ballots and i was [TS]

  just talking to the election officials and waiting to see the results and [TS]

  someone dropped one of the ballot papers and i got sucked into an air [TS]

  conditioning and got lost and I could see it but they couldn't reach it and I [TS]

  spent 20 minutes discussing what to do about this one ballot they didn't know [TS]

  who was four and it was and all the other candidates with Aaron was [TS]

  discussing what to do and in the end they just left and they said oh we can [TS]

  get that one of its not gonna make a difference [TS]

  always surprised I didn't like it really sticks with me to this day that the [TS]

  election officials decided are well it doesn't really matter and they left this [TS]

  under uncounted ballots in a film like this travesty really up for a few [TS]

  seconds shattered democracy for me that election officials were willing to not [TS]

  count as vote I just noticed we have something here that one has done a great [TS]

  as the postcard they have made their front of their postcode is great but [TS]

  they have voted for an island gear but it's funny you should say that Gray was [TS]

  at that very moment and I know you don't believe in coincidences but at the very [TS]

  believe that they happen at the very moment you pointed that out [TS]

  have a great but this person has voted for great they have put their vote that [TS]

  they want to be great because I flag that's not allowed that go straight [TS]

  there one votes being stuck somewhere story makes me think of every once in a [TS]

  while on the internet you will see someone claiming that an election was [TS]

  rigged or that the results are invalid because they voted for a candidate who [TS]

  then shows up having no votes when they do the final tally by someone will do a [TS]

  write-in candidate and they're supposed to reports like oh yes one vote for this [TS]

  is made up candidate but maybe maybe they're one vote was the one vote to get [TS]

  sucked into the air conditioning system and so it's not actually a temporary [TS]

  ballot there are quite a few of these three dimensional postcards coming in [TS]

  where you know what do you call those that kind of thing where you took the [TS]

  paper two different angles and you see three different moves is the earth [TS]

  moving back and forth those things which ones those magic I think I actually like [TS]

  three-dimensional holograms basically is a few of those coming in [TS]

  hologram postcodes this is amazing even we still hardly made a dent in the back [TS]

  up against my wife could be coming home to a to a crazy scene I was hoping this [TS]

  would all be cleaned everything on thanks in meet before before you come [TS]

  back my wife would not be happy if she comes home to find her kitchen tent into [TS]

  the hello Internet polling station oh whoa what happened there [TS]

  oh great fit into that stuck together this looks suspicious I have some I have [TS]

  suspicious activity [TS]

  suspicious activity look we have potential voter we have instances of [TS]

  voter fraud I have [TS]

  postcards all identical votes from an identical person identical front I see [TS]

  what's happened here [TS]

  explain explain what their number yet someone's made a flip book my first past [TS]

  the post voting video yeah and so what we actually have have is a serious [TS]

  problem because there are probably twenty three of these because they're [TS]

  numbered 21 of 23 so we've got to keep an eye out this stuff he's voted for [TS]

  them even and they've even put at the playground about it I can't believe [TS]

  we're having to do with bunch of fraud so keep an eye on ya gotta keep an eye [TS]

  out for this and on the reverse video I'm sure you know every single frame of [TS]

  my video so yeah I feel like they're probably back together if I was being [TS]

  really sneaky the voter fraud start spread them out over multiple times the [TS]

  one who is committing voter fraud who are they trying to help they trying to [TS]

  get up and close their their preference here I have a bill with someone someone [TS]

  say someone had some bank statement or build it made into a religion books [TS]

  vitally important they received your your kidney transplant has arrived [TS]

  please contact us like this we have an unusually shaped on the hives the [TS]

  parliament building in Wellington New Zealand nice quite a few bites of come [TS]

  from New Zealand I guess there in the flag voting movie devoting one's in the [TS]

  flag referenda you might as well vote another want to be noticed I don't know [TS]

  if you've noticed great cause you haven't been on email too much lately [TS]

  but a lot of people have been sending us the ballot paper for the New Zealand [TS]

  flag reference no I haven't actually seen it now people are actually voting [TS]

  so people have been scanning them and sending us a copy so we can see what it [TS]

  looks like do you think it's a well-designed ballots yeah I do actually [TS]

  I think it looks reasonably idiot proof [TS]

  even though I don't agree with their shortlist the ballot papers from memory [TS]

  they include images of what it looks like flying and things like I am worried [TS]

  that when I'm talking to the same time I am throwing clothes into the wrong beans [TS]

  but that's what we have to do the counter separately like that I think the [TS]

  same thing happens when we can talk it vastly increases the probability of [TS]

  error we tried to a recount again no but I mean it gives you a chance when you're [TS]

  counting to just look and maybe notice one that's wrong thing we got the bigger [TS]

  boxes have to rearrange the Nile and gearbox own just so we can fit more in [TS]

  this will be interesting to look at a time thats my favorite postcards [TS]

  postcards that come from towns that shouldn't really have passed but here's [TS]

  one from Wolverhampton and I know Wolverhampton I've been there and I like [TS]

  and I like I can't say I'm familiar with all the killers plan will have to [TS]

  believe or not but I'm surprised it's a town that has opposed cut and when you [TS]

  look at their post God you can see why I'm surprised no those are those are [TS]

  iconic buildings were you when you do was selection bias everybody's look at [TS]

  every place has at least one thing photogenic for a postcard is a very from [TS]

  Wolverhampton for Frankie flag which they described as the one true I hope [TS]

  you enjoy the glories in nineteen seventies vistas of Wolverhampton [TS]

  comes from its funny doing this great this feels like normally someone like [TS]

  you and your work this is the sort of job you wouldn't have ended up doing you [TS]

  would have out-sourced touching all these postcards and dealing with all [TS]

  this paper it best not to think how many people by proxy you're touching by [TS]

  touching the postcards you just put out of your mind what God had a big hand [TS]

  watch later on [TS]

  yeah we're gonna have a big and watch later I'm surprised you haven't had one [TS]

  yet you don't want a good hand wash doesn't mind a good hand wash someone [TS]

  has sent us a letter and I feel like there's a postcard in there and it's [TS]

  come from Nigeria I think it's legit I just think maybe you can't send a [TS]

  postcard from Nigeria [TS]

  the underside we'll take a look at it later but I will give it a chance every [TS]

  vote matters breathing but if you break the rules of hating you break the rules [TS]

  of voting we said no envelopes there's another vote for great paper ballot is [TS]

  spoiled someone here has just written this ballot is spoiled I like that they [TS]

  went to the trouble of sending an end we have our first team for their trip to [TS]

  Norway everyday thanks for visiting team someone here has painted a reunion swamp [TS]

  and on the ballot as a vote for flag again sort of the art and artistic [TS]

  person on a here is an interesting dilemma for us here is what looks like a [TS]

  legitimate vote that has come from portland oregon and someone I think [TS]

  maybe the postal service has put some sticker on the back of the card for some [TS]

  reason that perfect same place this article in the foreign holdout whatever [TS]

  that means but it means we can see what they voted for it sound like others got [TS]

  this got sorted into their foreign system which Portland make sure that the [TS]

  message can you say the postal service has put the sticker over the vote but [TS]

  actually I can see under the right light I can see through the sticker and they [TS]

  have voted for nailing gear and I think you know we've gotta let them have their [TS]

  vote I will let you decide on that one that's going an island near the vote [TS]

  counts this one is spoiled by a team but they're voting for the comic sans [TS]

  version of Maryland which was one of the ones originally in our makeup flag for [TS]

  help but spoil the way Spoto take a deep cut hello Internet reference that right [TS]

  just with the people who were on that thread remember that flag we've got one [TS]

  from the Netherlands right just was roughly we've been jet-setting about [TS]

  this last week but this on this episode will probably talk about that in a [TS]

  future episode yeah I think so I think I could not possibly talk about anything [TS]

  done while doing this is a postcard with my face on [TS]

  say people are being creative and also taking the mickey out of us which is to [TS]

  be expected [TS]

  respected and appreciated 9999 gear made of thick carpet club enclose oh here we [TS]

  go this person has broken the rules of voting by writing a message to us above [TS]

  the essay that spoiled that's definitely it spoiled greedy but we know their [TS]

  intent and this is democracy [TS]

  this is this is how you open up the box and having to evaluate everything I [TS]

  would I would look at you I'm gonna follow my instinct and grading [TS]

  that had landed in my hand it would be the naughty box already I'm lucky [TS]

  listener whoever it was who sent that one in I think we need you very fact [TS]

  that you do that as you slowly undermining democracy so that's how [TS]

  democracy dies the wrong account with bending the rules that's how it ties [TS]

  counted ballots you're bending the rules my friends just making stuff was [TS]

  references basically we going to do a show on Star Wars people demand it [TS]

  you book your tickets you have to go to the pub study I'm surprised I'm not I'm [TS]

  not sure I've done that puts my VIP theater no other way of course [TS]

  either way I've ever seen that movie and surprisingly empty when you book it that [TS]

  way even for Star Wars I have avoided all the trailers so far but then it [TS]

  becomes like a bizarre kind of investment that you have created over [TS]

  time that the possibility of ruining that they get bigger and bigger as time [TS]

  goes on like what you use more and more so that's one of the reasons why I want [TS]

  to book soon as it's like protecting the investment of having remained spoiler [TS]

  free for a long period of time [TS]

  have you remains but they're not open watching I haven't been like watching [TS]

  interviews with customers to watch the trailer ok I think I think that's like [TS]

  that like a level one of spoilers but you haven't [TS]

  been going on like sites that come through everything and try to figure out [TS]

  all the stuff and it's not much I have to admit I've called a little bit how [TS]

  could I think it's gonna be what makes you say that maybe it won't be that [TS]

  great expectation is not that it will be great what I am thinking not that it [TS]

  will be bad but when I'm thinking is it might be a bit like I rebooted Star Trac [TS]

  which I quite enjoyed like was a fun movie but is no way I can say oh it's a [TS]

  perfect maybe not but I i think that's a very good I'd be happy if the Star Wars [TS]

  you start was reached that level [TS]

  oh yeah and so I do have expectations but I also feel like I haven't really [TS]

  watched that Star Trek movie in a long time and i never feel like compelled to [TS]

  rewatch whereas the original Star Wars like every once in the last like well I [TS]

  guess I have to watch the trilogy again would you watch the original Star Wars [TS]

  movies so every once every two years maybe on average about you mister quotes [TS]

  it all the time [TS]

  probably the same but really by choice normally buy outs on TV or have a look [TS]

  sort of thing I really will be speaking of which there's a storm trooper a [TS]

  stormtrooper on the stamp their first vote for hla-dr look here's one with the [TS]

  votes have been consumed under a post at night now is that the one that you saw [TS]

  on Twitter about being concealed under a person is for as I feel about club in [TS]

  purchase intent to this point now that we we did our best to wait out the [TS]

  idiots now it's about any more ballots from a nap vote-rigging yet you haven't [TS]

  either which makes me suspicious maybe maybe the real trick here is to mess [TS]

  with us and the label of one out of 23 but only stand for that was actually [TS]

  what you've done sir [TS]

  congratulations that's like that's true terrorism but slightly spoiled I didn't [TS]

  know that mask face for Star Wars tonight that character and I knew only [TS]

  see the shot of that person from behind in the first trailer I never saw that [TS]

  mask so I just received a slightly small very small spoiler for Star Wars we have [TS]

  a spoiled ballots from the Netherlands with C Nick black piece of course like [TS]

  pete was a somewhat controversial outside of the Netherlands Christmas [TS]

  character but inside of the Netherlands is a totally normal Christmas character [TS]

  who is a helper to saint nick but is usually played by a white person [TS]

  who paint themselves black yes and is so controversial outside of the Netherlands [TS]

  yes I grew up in a somewhat Dutch household and so seems totally normal to [TS]

  me but I can also understand why in your household even that was used was my mom [TS]

  had a bunch of like Dutch kinda stuff that we used to do around Christmas time [TS]

  and so I was used to see like black people character but I used to see him [TS]

  on like wrapping paper and some other stuff so I was aware of his existence so [TS]

  the Maryland flag is a bit of a theme on some of these postcards and here's [TS]

  someone has sent a postcard which has got sort of a Jeep which has been [TS]

  painted with the Maryland flag motif looks awesome that Maryland flag and [TS]

  they've written warning on the post cuts and Pierce this post cut gems shredders [TS]

  showed that about and it's a valid ballots it's a vote for flag flair you [TS]

  really are going to keep these postcards forever aren't you bringing you know [TS]

  when you dial you bequeath into the museum of hello internets yeah I think [TS]

  that museum will be up and running before while before I die so I'll [TS]

  probably already be in the museum if we have a time-lapse video to go with this [TS]

  podcast of people who choose to watch the video the question is will people be [TS]

  able to resist kind of fast-forwarding through it so they can so they can watch [TS]

  which box is filling up the most quickly though is people who jump to the end [TS]

  right at the Starbucks in ways that I cannot understand people will do its the [TS]

  internet they can do what they like [TS]

  it's such a shock when I see a vote for a child I have to double check I'm doing [TS]

  the same thing every single time it's a bit of a wait what we're in that box I [TS]

  don't even know it's a perfectly acceptable flag it's a bit sad that is [TS]

  doing so poorly if the vote against tradition is what it is breeding we [TS]

  designed it so the vote against you I know you didnt designed to be able to [TS]

  get a like a like people trying to mess with us at the picture of one flag vote [TS]

  for a different day this person here has made a joint postcode with the club [TS]

  include logo is the as the face and then you turned over they voted for the [TS]

  second choice as a child and as hell I have a nice day I am team that the [TS]

  person intentionally trying to mess with us putting in the wrong box we thought [TS]

  you were very thorough we're definitely going to catch all of the things that we [TS]

  notice sketching and not catch the things that we don't it must have been [TS]

  some fascinating for the people sorting things at the post place see you saying [TS]

  that you say that because you're the kind of person who would be fascinated [TS]

  about this because you have on record they were not fascinated enough to make [TS]

  do any investigation to try to figure out what it was that's true he would [TS]

  just wondering what the hell are all these postcards for but not a wandering [TS]

  enough to type in club and claws into google and find out the answer so I [TS]

  think actually we just represented an enormous amount of unwelcome work in the [TS]

  most likely thing here a bit of misdirected mile actually in the end up [TS]

  feeling less confident the postal service oh yeah definitely definitely [TS]

  makes you wonder how many votes haven't made it for the rest of my life I will [TS]

  feel much more understandable when someone says all was lost in the mail [TS]

  and yea right of course it wasn't lost in the mail we have what five pieces of [TS]

  mail that was lost in the mail already wonderful the neighboring your boxes [TS]

  have postcards they're wondering what the heck are ya [TS]

  someone send me a postcard that says Nalin here's what they think it's not [TS]

  like some kind of spy messages in the last week has just saying [TS]

  Skull and Bones something actually I tell you what doing this is also making [TS]

  me rethink the request I was gonna make to my nephew to go and actually type in [TS]

  all the votes for us like to know how much is too much impossible if not [TS]

  impossible but it's just you're burning hours of human efforts but that's just [TS]

  not for nothing but just to build the kind of mild curiosity of like I'm [TS]

  mildly interested in the exact statistics why don't you spend many [TS]

  weeks of this information so that I can go pretty much expected to find out from [TS]

  that they're very I think I'm having my first brain fled you need to get you [TS]

  some team which he first tea break probably in about 20 minutes 20 minutes [TS]

  let's finish this books have been pulling from a different box that you [TS]

  change boxes away when I wanna grab that box you're the only one is implying that [TS]

  box it makes me feel good that we're making more progress and i realized she [TS]

  doing ok I mean there's still a lot but I honestly think we could take a break [TS]

  pretty soon you take a break before you need to take breaks when you don't need [TS]

  a break if you think you might need a break the answer is yes if you reach the [TS]

  point where you're thinking I definitely to break you waited too long to take a [TS]

  break [TS]

  discount left intentionally blank I sent it it's fun descendants yeah that's the [TS]

  answer is fun descended this person's has voted for the red and yellow version [TS]

  of nailing gear that spoiled ballot now you're being a strict no numbers [TS]

  oh I'm counting it no i i get that of course that's what they main oil it's [TS]

  not a lot it's not about you divining voter intense it's about is it a valid [TS]

  ballots it is not a valid ballots this is like a philosophical question about [TS]

  democracy for people who this person on the back of their post expedient again [TS]

  I'm gonna throw a look at the most the most objective person ever write my [TS]

  bleeding heart wants to go out to this person but then you know who it is you [TS]

  should never be doing anything with the election now I know their intent their [TS]

  intent was not to vote their intent was to test test and you failed I got it [TS]

  because you have to look on the other side like this person is being a pain in [TS]

  the [TS]

  this person is being such a pain in the bum show them on the podcast others [TS]

  question though it does a valid account or not I will have leader for you [TS]

  an interesting question about one particular postcard if it should count [TS]

  or not so we will leave that to later but don't let me forget cause I almost [TS]

  forgot I think I can predict what your thing is I think I can predict what your [TS]

  going to ask me do i do that now doing try to predict predicted ok people [TS]

  listening a few seconds to think what they think is gonna be due to do [TS]

  do do do do do you think someone asked if they could give you a post it in [TS]

  person and and and put it into the boxes today that is correct that happened say [TS]

  I'm not good almost done that I say that this is not an implication that you [TS]

  dumped yeah they UK so that you think on that if that's your counter not my [TS]

  feeling is and i know im just a bowl of contradiction in your us know shouldn't [TS]

  count that one you think now I well if your gonna be really simplistic about up [TS]

  there are the trying to cheat the deadline or save money but other people [TS]

  had to pay by steps above post goes to take power and they're sort of thinking [TS]

  I know that I know this isn't their actual reason but the whole idea was we [TS]

  put some sort of the same time we do we deliberately put some resistance in [TS]

  their way so that people didn't cheat the system and all these people that [TS]

  have taken the trouble to send as postcards overcame that resistance and [TS]

  went to the post box and all that sort of thing and one person taking advantage [TS]

  of the fact they know you are they saw you [TS]

  hasn't done that so don't you think a certain time to resistance is also [TS]

  following the rules [TS]

  appropriately which you seem to just be willing to cast aside if you are able to [TS]

  do magic divine the intention of voting no because what I'm doing it doing it [TS]

  properly is a kind of resistance yeah but people make mistakes people make [TS]

  mistakes and we punish them for their mistakes that's the question being or [TS]

  trying to answer it if someone with all the will in the world wanted to take [TS]

  power went to the post office and border post kinda forgot to write the numbers [TS]

  do we punish them for that [TS]

  do they not get to be part of democracy because they accidentally made a mistake [TS]

  as opposed to your person who knew they were supposed to send it said can you [TS]

  put it in there for me anyway cause I won't make the deadline otherwise so [TS]

  they knew they were trying to do we have announced very solid wood postcard oh [TS]

  yeah actually might award from the North Carolina clearly breaking [TS]

  the mermaid on it clearly breaking the Rose what are they voted for a child [TS]

  needs a Lego needs all the help we can get and I will also grant that the [TS]

  unusual materials is vague enough to allow [TS]

  counting discretion whereas put your numbers on there is not big enough to [TS]

  allow vote counter discretion discretion is still being shown sometimes just took [TS]

  off big softy hard as nails I think showing my cushions that he's another [TS]

  unusual one for this one's made of metal from Dubai nailing nice person I was [TS]

  with the current name for it not the Burj Dubai anymore it's Burj Al Arab [TS]

  Burj Khalifa Burj Khalifa Burj Khalifa building on its got lovely stamps that's [TS]

  just a perfect storm of cool hello Internet us from someone called Peter [TS]

  another vote for nailing here now here's someone has sent in their ballot and [TS]

  over where the votes should be they have sticky tape how is it that you get all [TS]

  of the ambiguous it's like the postcard the No [TS]

  to get to you to try to make their way through this sticky tape a playing COD [TS]

  over their votes which is actually very hard to remove invalid I am gonna count [TS]

  that is invalid are finally but do you know what if you look closely they have [TS]

  actually stick to playing and I am I think I know what it is I am wondering [TS]

  whether or not it is indeed the queen of spades and the Jack of Diamonds but I [TS]

  will not find out now there is going to be a mystery for another day but I think [TS]

  I think you are right I think your powers of prediction will prove valid [TS]

  yet again that's pretty cool stuff done that but that voters not been counted [TS]

  because there is too much resistance for us to have 24 Brady Brady anyway [TS]

  was the first one maybe I would have done it and that were actually faced [TS]

  with the true scale of this thing [TS]

  and at what time it is and when is your wife coming home yet this is this is [TS]

  taking longer than I thought it would this really threw me I was trying to [TS]

  figure out what this person wrote to us but actually a postcard to someone else [TS]

  that is yet another piece [TS]

  someone visiting bone it's it's addressed to Steve love from has ended [TS]

  up in the hell of Internet ballot box I feel really badly about that that's [TS]

  that's terrible [TS]

  missing a postcard from their mom because of us put the correct address I [TS]

  will get it to the proper dress you know where that is [TS]

  yep that's right that's right now where the votes when you can you explain when [TS]

  and thanks to back leaves for supporting the show had a break for we stopped more [TS]

  sorting maybe we should make these boxes up a little bit well as really want to [TS]

  try to compassion yeah they the Nile in gay books is close to overflowing make [TS]

  sure we don't lose any down in the air conditioning vents right actually much [TS]

  harder than ever thinking it was going to be like playing hard but of course [TS]

  it's not like playing cards because they're not all the same size yeah again [TS]

  I'm having sympathy for the men and women in the little postal center again [TS]

  now dealing with dozens upon dozens of these coming in and working with the [TS]

  averages to this on average how many came in today can you imagine if we [TS]

  opened all these envelopes that came in and that would be impossible I mean I [TS]

  think these leaked went up all the time at least you're not really supposed to [TS]

  be working off-camera great kinda ruins the effect there's nowhere to go this [TS]

  way I look like a magic persons doing something like in apollo the Apollo moon [TS]

  missions whenever one of the astronauts it went off camera and it's something a [TS]

  bit off paste it was a bit like doing this is a part of the mission plan [TS]

  camera with all those ballots is he is he doing [TS]

  change ballots it's a conspiracy hearing you just giving people their conspiracy [TS]

  theory moment and whenever someone stepped off-camera what are they doing [TS]

  who knows whether many off-camera moments of has that was playing down to [TS]

  the tens of seconds [TS]

  particularly in their early missions with just one static camerawoman all of [TS]

  Apollo 12 was pretty much off camera because I fried the camera ten seconds [TS]

  into the mission so the TV footage of Apollo 12 is non-existent Allen been [TS]

  accidentally pointed the camera at the Sun and burned out the year didn't have [TS]

  a camera didn't bring to use cameras are expensive back at ya I mean there's a [TS]

  camera on the lunar module I don't know what that would have picked up still [TS]

  that may have still picked up some stuff the camera they used when they were done [TS]

  the letter but the camera on the tripod is more important was gone I kinda can't [TS]

  believe that they don't have to wait was so important on those missions yeah we [TS]

  do so important but if you lose the camera I guess the problem is everything [TS]

  is vital as of right now we've we've rearranged niland year [TS]

  compacted its compact us so we can fit more in let's get back to work here for [TS]

  nail and beauty rest this takes shape what are you thinking is this gonna go [TS]

  to like nailing he clearly has a lead is this even gonna go to preferences but I [TS]

  was wondering just as we were coming back down I was trying to eyeball to [TS]

  eyeball the different types of the boxes before we compacted [TS]

  I just found someone from a vote rigor also like this one which I think I've [TS]

  seen a few postcards from a discarded from which is my disqualified yet I [TS]

  think there's someone else who's done a bunch of caught and put on side so you [TS]

  vote against I think we're catching some of yours we catch everyone that we can [TS]

  go to preferences [TS]

  eyeballing the signs of the various boxes and I would say that I don't know [TS]

  if it's going to go to preferences eyeballing it it just seemed within the [TS]

  visual margin of error that maybe we will maybe we won't for now appears to [TS]

  be disappointing if it didn't go to and you've got to stop calling it a night [TS]

  yeah it's nice when you're getting the name wrong even wrote the official great [TS]

  someone has sent a postcard of the skyline of Denver and they like that [TS]

  they've drawn in their own mighty black MBS brackets delivery vehicle for it [TS]

  blackstone voted for club include clauses even if mailing gear is gonna [TS]

  win win win this which is looking very possible I just hope it goes to [TS]

  preferences that is where the suspense is without a doubt where the expenses I [TS]

  mean like our evening will be much shorter if it doesn't go to preferences [TS]

  but it will be more disappointing so we will see how we have another postcard [TS]

  for Steve from someone else to now hosts a far as Steve got one from Dulles [TS]

  International airports where the airport itself is happy that I saw so much of me [TS]

  this summer they would say it's a postcard from Dulles Airport no vote [TS]

  they definitely the way to get our intention is to do the spoiled ballots [TS]

  by definition paid more attention to it I like this person start they've made a [TS]

  customized postcard with icons of hello internet and all look at this and all of [TS]

  our other YouTube channels in the cortex podcast they've made a little all of our [TS]

  various endeavors I notice I am taking a lot more there's always that all of our [TS]

  various endeavors its my three-year-old higher projects [TS]

  and you're sixteen other projects they voted for nine league in at the end of [TS]

  their freedom there dear Brady more Kate please everybody loves Kiki objectivity [TS]

  doesn't fraudster I know this person has been a nuisance this is one of the other [TS]

  nuisance people who send this postcode I finally figured out what their postcode [TS]

  means they oppose cuts has only one of these is filled in according to the hope [TS]

  of ever she said in like 10 postcards all of them are spoiled ballots this one [TS]

  this is this one follows the rules so that's their legitimate I'm almost [TS]

  tempted to throw [TS]

  feeding your eyes you can have your ladies and gentlemen do not have Brady [TS]

  run your election with all due respect and I think if I myself like voting [TS]

  against it now has become like the big months to this is always with israeli [TS]

  humans love underdogs yeah that's the thing has become like Manchester United [TS]

  or something like that the Yankees to put in your language it's so popular [TS]

  nobody votes for that kind of thing [TS]

  nice weather nice post cut of the Burj Khalifa with no votes came back this is [TS]

  gonna go to preferences I guess I think it's closes like within the visual [TS]

  margin of error no I think it's Cup comfortably gonna go to preferences and [TS]

  another bold prediction well alright this is a bold predictions hii logo that [TS]

  I think even after we distribute that a child logo preferences we might need to [TS]

  go to another round [TS]

  you may be right he may be right about that but we have two rounds I mean I [TS]

  don't know if if I can imagine a more exciting evening than having to [TS]

  preference is to distribute I might not be able to handle that much excitement [TS]

  have another postcard from Marcy this time we're gonna many postcards for [TS]

  other people I'm just the mail that's the beauty of the randomness that the [TS]

  beauty [TS]

  not an empty books I've ever read one of the books as we go this is this is a [TS]

  special work about this one [TS]

  this person here who has sent us a postcard has has made a compilation [TS]

  postcard of various liberian County flags combined with the Maryland flag I [TS]

  believe that's the river Rivergate county do you know how much how do you [TS]

  know I have made my own steps you can do this bro mile you can make your own [TS]

  steps I've made my own stamps for my christmas cards this year and for some [TS]

  postcards I'm sending from number for our that incorporates the refugee County [TS]

  that's where you got them from I knew you had the stamps I didn't know I [TS]

  wasn't sure if you actually were courting stamps from liberia 1000 have [TS]

  bought some original ones but I got my right of course I had to make my and I [TS]

  can actually send to the post you come across a postcard that people have left [TS]

  in like a plastic wrapping for protection and do you think I've done [TS]

  that cause they wanted to make sure it was safe for the yeah it's like they [TS]

  wanted to be mint condition like comic books and i'm i'm saying that that [TS]

  totally valid because you can read its right to be a little we didn't really [TS]

  cover that in the rules degrees less is that right you know if the next time we [TS]

  run a flag referendum you know we're called to consult somewhere will have a [TS]

  will know even more things to specify with rules [TS]

  at a bar graph you're serious about you and I getting work and it's like [TS]

  referendum consultants we better hope no one ever listens to this podcast watch [TS]

  this video I think that will end in the right there this is this is establishing [TS]

  are bona fide [TS]

  think this makes us look at how much I think most people will look at it and [TS]

  think boy that looks like a lot of work those guys do a lot of work in the not [TS]

  watch the whole thing that's what I can do just two of them imagine if we gave [TS]

  them the whole government power behind them [TS]

  reconvene hearings be impression impressive miss you we should do let me [TS]

  finish we should figure out how many people said hello and how many votes we [TS]

  got to find out one voter turnout was like and then compared with voter [TS]

  turnout at the New Zealand [TS]

  referendum we compare the probably would have without you think that is very [TS]

  interesting that we would have with that is it is very hard to know how many [TS]

  people actually listen to the podcast like any numbers that we come up with [TS]

  our population numbers will have a huge uncertainty on them right and so would [TS]

  you like a bounded uncertainty here is an interesting one genuinely interesting [TS]

  one person has written their top two choices in flying flag but you can see [TS]

  something is written above it but it is almost entirely obscured by the air mail [TS]

  notice staff I don't know I don't know what do you think about that and what [TS]

  they've written above it is clearly looks like the bottom of white cross [TS]

  yeah but number one i mean will put a picture of this in the shona people have [TS]

  a look at ya if we don't cut it and if we don't lose track of the little sticky [TS]

  or not so yeah I know we'll talk in in all of this will totally be able to find [TS]

  that thats to you later on I'm guessing they put that sticker on this they [TS]

  deliberately do you think they deliberately put that sticker on the [TS]

  stick it back a bit and see what's under can you can you feel it back to me steam [TS]

  it open I see it's not going to come back [TS]

  is not going to come back they're written 43 this is this is an invalid [TS]

  ballots I i'm i'm going to say that this is invalid on the foot to number one [TS]

  this is dennis is someone just messing with us [TS]

  underneath we've been messed with underneath the Alma airmail sticker they [TS]

  have a second number one and other things out of order but the airmail [TS]

  sticker covers it up nice try [TS]

  well they won that one day we caught it they want it if it gets through we don't [TS]

  notice it's true that this is invalid someone has personal information it's [TS]

  written above the votes I think I smell it not a valid that's about it is not a [TS]

  valid by the name of the show but it's an invalid votes this is invalid [TS]

  to me that's a completely found it is invalid he put it in the naughty books [TS]

  because it's an invalid vote because we have rules this is how society is held [TS]

  together we have rules in valid right you write something above the reference [TS]

  therein valid I'm not hard the rules are more like guidelines they were rules the [TS]

  only one that is vaguely a guideline is the material one we will be looking at [TS]

  these postcards again [TS]

  people to have a closer look at some of the things you've done some people have [TS]

  made really creative postcards live home made them and the personal messages on [TS]

  them and we've looked at some of them already but will look more later [TS]

  yeah honestly I should come back up again and we should do something again [TS]

  with this like I do want to look at these in more detail today maybe now is [TS]

  a good time to tell people about my other little project moving on [TS]

  yeah we're gonna play here Brady not letting us basically I'm doing it but [TS]

  I'm doing it will be great in a way that he's not doing any of the work is my [TS]

  favorite way of working with other people we're going to create a separate [TS]

  little blow sort of website and hopefully my plan at the moment but I'm [TS]

  hoping to change my mind every day we're gonna share in dito a postcard that has [TS]

  been sent in to the election [TS]

  look at the picture on the front look at the back of my be funny message that [TS]

  might be funny story it might be from an interesting place in my have a code [TS]

  stamps so I don't know what exactly what the URL is going to be yet to be in the [TS]

  condition it will talk about it again sometime I have a look and keep an eye [TS]

  out for it because if at the moment these postcards just whizzing by talking [TS]

  about them [TS]

  enough to get some of our favorite ones are gonna end up there on this kind of [TS]

  little daily daily website of course I'm not suggesting people go to it every day [TS]

  that would be sure but you can maybe dip in every few weeks and just have a look [TS]

  at what the what the latest ones out there have been added you can go every [TS]

  day [TS]

  definitely should go everyday style but the ending to have new ones going on [TS]

  every day but we'll see how it turns out but basically we don't want all this [TS]

  stuff just to to go to waste we want to we want to showcase some of the great [TS]

  stuff you guys have sent and I i don't like the idea we've been talking about [TS]

  ways that more people can see some of these interesting things and especially [TS]

  you mention this website earlier today and now going through all of it feels [TS]

  even more important that we do something or pulling out some postcards yeah [TS]

  another vote for great peak you can't tell me what to do we can tell you what [TS]

  to do but we can throw in the north of you in the north in fact we're saying [TS]

  that like it's a punishment of it people take loads super excited to be in the [TS]

  know this if you like china is going in just now it seems that we've moved into [TS]

  a different sort of time here it was a bit more popular I was just thinking a [TS]

  similar thing which is that I'm aware of how it feels like boats coming little [TS]

  clusters but of course this is simply a side effect of just going through so [TS]

  many like it would be shocking if they didn't come in clusters like incidences [TS]

  but it it it somehow feels when I get three in a row oh wow that was an [TS]

  interesting little moment then have to remind myself no course it was like [TS]

  you're always going to get three in a row four in a row even five in a row [TS]

  here they just probability let me know I know you know I miss the coincidence [TS]

  ferries hopes exactly what you dreamt it right if you dream of that people that's [TS]

  amazing [TS]

  imagine if you would imagine if you dreamed a dream where a coincidence [TS]

  happens and then you wake up and that's a coincidence happens that day that [TS]

  would be an amazing coincidence in with ya it would be the kind of thing that a [TS]

  person a knowledgeable of statistics might want to draw meaning from [TS]

  you like Niall India's leaders been paid back that's partly because the denial [TS]

  and give Ben has been more packed in so it looks to go every time I think we're [TS]

  making progress I kind of look at what's still to go [TS]

  think wow this is gonna be a boring episode do you think this episode 298 [TS]

  editing grady think we could just leave this uncut I think the best thing to do [TS]

  would be doing that and it a listen listen every out here we have we're [TS]

  going to you do something with the edited version of this but there's no [TS]

  reason on you too we couldn't actually just upload the raw thing of us sorting [TS]

  and counting all of this people can see exactly how long it took and then just [TS]

  think when people watch all the way through we will get dozens and dozens of [TS]

  pennies from the new YouTube red system yeah this price cuts got an awesome [TS]

  piece of a somewhat common thing for people to sort of draw little cavemen [TS]

  and robots but someone has done a really lovely little artistic depiction of us [TS]

  on the moon with Audrey on the moon with us and the nail in gear flag but you [TS]

  recognize that it's the little prince no I don't know what it is you don't know [TS]

  the little prince I think you would know if I showed you the book I K [TS]

  you would definitely know if you saw ok gotten a marriage proposal [TS]

  great i love you will you marry me well so I have already married you're off the [TS]

  market a market where it says here [TS]

  Scarlett Johansson Hollywood California too late to pick up the postcard and it [TS]

  felt a little funny and the person's written hugs and kisses from Belgium but [TS]

  they have made a little origami heart which goes on the inside of this is like [TS]

  a little like a little envelope that they put together [TS]

  I like a lot of postcards of coming with pictures of Susan [TS]

  yeah a lot of people of CCTV reason on their postcards obviously it I'm [TS]

  imagining this one's from Norway Norway's moving kind of a lot of [TS]

  Canadians also this week person he wasn't in the picture of the most [TS]

  looking at a nude lady in the water on my little bit racy an audio postcard but [TS]

  not one person or team in NHL logo too so there you go [TS]

  who would have guessed I've also noticed a few postcards that have got that the [TS]

  chorus that the leaf that you yes yes people to send in pictures of that [TS]

  washingtonDC think now that's a Chicago of course Chicago you obviously haven't [TS]

  watched they tend to talk about legs I have not watched the TED talk about [TS]

  flags we know someday that is the start of that video someday it's still too [TS]

  still open and that's your book would have been moments like Scarlett [TS]

  Johansson has she could have had you should proposed earlier why do you [TS]

  always say Johansson that's because I don't know which is right I never heard [TS]

  anybody say Johansson except you have that kind of a Scandinavian why there [TS]

  was a Formula One driver who I really like I'm not saying that there are [TS]

  people who don't use the Jays the water understand that but wasn't Scarlett [TS]

  Johansson born in America we need to find a video of her saying her own name [TS]

  no I don't know because maybe she's changed it to be a Hollywood already [TS]

  have parents say how they seem then I'm now she gets to decide how her name is [TS]

  pronounced yes but if she changes that she loses her right to tell me off the [TS]

  mispronouncing it a difficult question because then you get people who are just [TS]

  demanded you pronounce the name in a completely unrelated way to the actual [TS]

  letters [TS]

  happens in sports that for two or three years or the British like football [TS]

  commentators will call a foreign player by name and then eventually after two or [TS]

  three years the player will speak to someone in the media and by the way guys [TS]

  you've been getting my name wrong all these years [TS]

  and overnight they would change how they pronounce its really interesting when [TS]

  that happens it is like the Stephen Colbert thing is father pronounces it [TS]

  hurts more than I think it's someone called him like a famous take [TS]

  stop fire attached to your postcard so someone actually sticky tape hot stuff [TS]

  so mister ruthless gray you gonna make that invalid that's fine what role does [TS]

  this break material is not made out of a different material there is no envelope [TS]

  that needs open they've written everything in the right there is no rule [TS]

  that this breaks so if someone had super glued to their postcode which used to [TS]

  counter of course of lines btw [TS]

  and your line is somewhere between a hot stuff for deposed yeah I think there's a [TS]

  nice people's land somewhere between those two will not be using that [TS]

  appreciate that it was sent in I will not be going into election in that going [TS]

  into my coffee is what's happening right another one [TS]

  what's the what's the problem here the problem is they got one of the names [TS]

  technically wrong someone here has voted and their number one is hello Internet [TS]

  logo instead of a child logo and if you don't count now you are ruthless roof [TS]

  lately we're gonna count that we're going to counted because that's what age [TS]

  I stands for and I think you could fairly call that the hello Internet flag [TS]

  and also quite frankly I'm gonna counted because once again the AJ logo boxes so [TS]

  sad [TS]

  let that one slide gonna count on that the move position to reorient your brain [TS]

  thank you but what you trying things as is gonna mess you up to one spot back [TS]

  double [TS]

  cautious kruschev adaptable as hardware too of course [TS]

  counters that phyllis was Army knives it's a catchy but I'm not quite there [TS]

  yet but it works to his secure something controversial for Christmas my wife [TS]

  didn't bother asking what I would like and I have asked for eleven men have a [TS]

  great great brand difference here just just looking at them lightly and I think [TS]

  maybe it's time for me to move from Swiss Army knife to let them in any [TS]

  thoughts on this [TS]

  well we had our Swiss Army knife discussion awhile back the truth is my [TS]

  brain I just group these things together which of course is exactly what the [TS]

  Swiss Army presumably doesn't want to do but to me Swiss Army is like the Kleenex [TS]

  brand I and the only Swiss Army knives I have ever owned [TS]

  are actually Letterman and I have always liked my pic completely different that's [TS]

  like you can't compare let them into a Swiss Army knife I believe I just how [TS]

  last but certainly not least this episode of hello internet is also [TS]

  brought to you by the mighty igloo the internet you will actually like they use [TS]

  that slogan because if you know what an Internet is if you have to use an [TS]

  Internet you almost certainly he your internet it's just some horrible thing [TS]

  from two decades ago at your company that's held together with duct tape is [TS]

  just a mess of files and folders everywhere that you're forced to use [TS]

  because your company makes you let me tell you share the good word of a clue I [TS]

  T department at your company or if you're at the IIT department at your [TS]

  company listening to this right now check out igloo at igloo software dot [TS]

  com slash low igloo allows you to share news organize your files coordinate [TS]

  calendars and manage projects all in one place and includes latest upgrade Viking [TS]

  revolves around documents and how you interact with them gather feedback and [TS]

  make changes they've even added the ability to track who is read critical [TS]

  information to keep everyone on the same page this is an internet is built to be [TS]

  an intern [TS]

  it's not just something that was cobbled together out or whatever was lying [TS]

  around twenty years so if your company has a legacy internet that looks like it [TS]

  was built in the nineties you need to give it a try or you need to bring a [TS]

  clue to the attention of the IIT department at your company go to include [TS]

  software dot com slash hello and you will see the simplicity and good design [TS]

  that awaits you [TS]

  thanks for supporting the show and services if this is the actual way it [TS]

  works or not but from this company that has many people have used to send us a [TS]

  postcard postcard that says dear person click here to write your message from [TS]

  the company that is sending postcards let the haven't filled out the process [TS]

  wondering as did they write this is a joke or did they just forget to actually [TS]

  flip philippi other side I think they forgot to fill in the other side and [TS]

  it's coming from Canada sorry person from Canada and here we go [TS]

  did you want to mention a postcard that is marked received in damaged condition [TS]

  but I think this is a person who actually did this on purpose I think [TS]

  this is an intentionally comically spoiled ballot because it cuts off [TS]

  exactly part of it has been ripped off and it ripped off exactly the number one [TS]

  choice of their votes i think is intentionally spoiled and you can see [TS]

  what they 234 but they have also ripped through the stamp and they risked it not [TS]

  being posted by ripping through the stamp you think the damaged damaged one [TS]

  so maybe is legit and we're actually we have a really interesting question with [TS]

  this yeah because you mister intent because they've written off i've you [TS]

  know what their first one was right there first one was nearly in tears cuz [TS]

  doesn't need any help yet [TS]

  mention they even have a flower for Brady I think maybe this maybe it's [TS]

  legitimate also where did they get that damaged conditions well as received in [TS]

  damaged condition [TS]

  this is that where that New York when I was passing through New York they stand [TS]

  it has received in damaged condition I think this is still valid oh you know it [TS]

  was unbelievable because I think we should make this involved do you think [TS]

  that's being valid you can derive with the first one is there's no [TS]

  no ambiguity about intense I tell you what I tell you why there is ambiguity [TS]

  about the intent [TS]

  it's possible they didn't write a number one it's possible they were taking the [TS]

  mickey out of his number one great take even we don't know what they put his [TS]

  number one you've convinced me you're gonna you're gonna kick my butt I know [TS]

  there's one coming later which is a similar problem that I think we should [TS]

  count but I'll market people can look at a picture of this on the website we're [TS]

  gonna we're not gonna campus one if they were voting voting for knowing you and I [TS]

  think they'll again needs the help anyway here's another one of these these [TS]

  postcards from Taiwan there's like three dimensional and you have to pull leave [TS]

  isn't things to open its gotta get sticky fingers for you it's a very fine [TS]

  I'll and gear so weird people that sort of it looks like a little cardboard seen [TS]

  thin cardboard box with a little paper flap coming out the side show people in [TS]

  the video camera now but when you pull this little paper livre all these extra [TS]

  bits of paper pop out with writing on them I said I think that counts [TS]

  that is just toying with the idea of what a postcard is and just barely [TS]

  slides under do you think people are gonna say this kind of inconsistent [TS]

  attitude we were taken to what counts and get really upset and they're only [TS]

  going to be upset at you because you're the one who's being inconsistent you [TS]

  inconsistent with that damaged when I was in consistence because I realized I [TS]

  was assuming it sent automatically when you raise a totally valid point so I am [TS]

  nothing inconsistent you are the one who does elections by feelings with another [TS]

  misdirected postcard [TS]

  that was intended for Abu how on earth this ended up with us I don't know the [TS]

  address is not not even mildly similar obviously the sorting people in with us [TS]

  that some sorting facility somewhere just got exhausted by postcards and [TS]

  whatever to send the ball on the way I do say that I'm the one who being [TS]

  perfectly consistent you are the one who is not I'm still gonna make you do the [TS]

  final votes on his hand delivery counts I was thinking about it all the way up [TS]

  here and I i cannot come to a conclusion about whether or not handle it recounts [TS]

  if it had been hand deliver it to the correct address and delivered to the [TS]

  address that we would like everyone to send it to my would counter because it [TS]

  was given to you personally I'm inclined to not count even though I suspect it [TS]

  was handed to you by my friend of a city like I still think we can make [TS]

  exceptions just because it's a friend I think your rights I think your acts [TS]

  because it is actually in violating two things right [TS]

  violating the deadline and the delivery as well yeah all right decision made ok [TS]

  great this is great this is this is one of my favorites this is a post card that [TS]

  has been completely matched by the postal service has been ripped apart [TS]

  it's come from California and the us- postal services put in a special plastic [TS]

  bag they put damage to vote but definitely you know when my brain is but [TS]

  here we can clearly see over boats like this is clearly a vote for now we can [TS]

  see ya there is no doubt that's a vote for now and again an ambiguous people [TS]

  who are only listening and not watching the video we will also put some links [TS]

  you look at some of the stuff but here we go here we have a damaged vote again [TS]

  the plastic bags from the British Royal Mail without sincere apologies right now [TS]

  we are sorry that it's autumn has reached you in this condition and when [TS]

  you turn around how hard is ripped in half and it's impossible to tell what [TS]

  they voted for you can tell they voted for flag flag [TS]

  over nail India and China but you don't know anything about yeah you can tell [TS]

  there's anything above this feels like a tragedy it does this vote right someone [TS]

  sent sent in in good faith they sent it from someone called Leben is that a [TS]

  place or is it a comment says leavin in tears can sort of see the front of the [TS]

  posts are there three sad at the real tragedy that one yeah that's just bad [TS]

  luck that's that's our equivalent of the one that went in the air conditioning [TS]

  duct I just wasn't meant to be that person say what that have been a really [TS]

  strong chance of ending up on my special website is a very special one who's this [TS]

  comes from Glendale in Adelaide South Australia England is the suburb of [TS]

  Adelaide in which I was born was its yeah sounds very beautiful the person [TS]

  has written Brady I honestly look for a postcard of the black stump but unless [TS]

  this one is just about fifteen minutes from where I saw the kind of apologize [TS]

  again as if I don't know we're going to actually hit the bullseye more fun than [TS]

  I am of the Blackstone here's one for you if you follow 00 it's a three day of [TS]

  buzz aldrin on the moon as the same that someone is trying to catch your [TS]

  attention we should have had this company that does postcards over the [TS]

  Internet sponsor us every business is a couple of them some of them have been [TS]

  used [TS]

  demo from a system of these are a bit rude [TS]

  eyeballing it look like flying the flag is catching up to club in closets as [TS]

  early second-place contender what would have been nice if we were organized in [TS]

  rich would have been to have each of these fire buckets on a scale so we [TS]

  could watch the weight of them changing [TS]

  alive count kind of mechanism that should the next referendum put it would [TS]

  have been killed but I have to say there are in some ways far fewer intensely [TS]

  spoiled ballots and I would have suspected [TS]

  people want their sacred they want to be part of it of course as I say that I go [TS]

  for a run of life three in the background of my phone that kind of [TS]

  black girls [TS]

  just makes me wonder how many we have missed as intentional things for the [TS]

  other person like I don't think you would have recognized that image as my [TS]

  phone background yeah maybe I might recognize that but I'm sure I'm seeing a [TS]

  lot of other folks are speaking of which he is a professor of ya overnight hang [TS]

  on you have stumbled over a very special place say this postcard which is a photo [TS]

  of me and the professor in the Gulf vote which is a just a postcard I've made to [TS]

  send from parody videos is the postcard I sent to a post books to test that the [TS]

  address so this was like this is a test moment was made into the book so this is [TS]

  the this is the postcard that wasn't intended to be about it was just to make [TS]

  sure the address would so yeah I just let it slide you let it slide but [TS]

  someone wrote year and they'll someone here is sending a really really shoot [TS]

  postcard all about the geology of Utah which is really interesting and has got [TS]

  all this blog space of the bed ridden one leg flare space now utah State at [TS]

  strengthening that's why I'm saying it's it's much closer now between club and [TS]

  causing flight flag will someone has sent in one of those cards that radio [TS]

  hams you know when they contact each other and send like a receipt to say [TS]

  about this I know nothing about the radio enthusiasts when they go on and go [TS]

  hey this is you know bien 43 said you're in sarajevo and they accidentally get to [TS]

  talk to someone in america have like an interaction they've been swapped details [TS]

  and they send each other these special cards about when they had their [TS]

  interaction you collect these postcards from around the world showing you you've [TS]

  spoken to him when I was like a calling card for our economy and you know what [TS]

  there was a comedy who it is but he's like a king he's lucky he was the king [TS]

  of saudi arabia of the king or something and he had a copy which was being a [TS]

  radio enthusiast and sometimes to some normal Joe would talk to [TS]

  someone united by code or sometimes will be by Morse code or just a really small [TS]

  interaction and then when they swapped cars they get their car to be from the [TS]

  king of this country and they didn't realize they've been speaking to this [TS]

  report we have another air post card that came to us which was not to pursue [TS]

  and all of these make me feel bad because then I read this message about [TS]

  how I'm so sorry we missed each other and we need to catch up soon I wanna [TS]

  hear back from you know it's our post box for a while maybe some of those [TS]

  marriage proposals to you have gone to other people's plus books and they think [TS]

  and they don't realize it's a joke they thinking he got a marriage proposal [TS]

  doesn't even know somehow get the feeling that most of the areas where in [TS]

  this direction this is another one of these interesting ones this person I [TS]

  think has filled out their ballot correctly it's become water stained so [TS]

  their numbering of their ballots as being walked away [TS]

  invalid completely valid invalid because because we have the vote for someone put [TS]

  the numbers on the wrong spots number two that on purpose you don't maybe this [TS]

  person did the same thing you cannot assume you cannot assume you order [TS]

  invalid nope no question about it [TS]

  invalid shouldn't even be a hesitation in ballot box it means that much to you [TS]

  feel that the what is it like the common law of this election process that the [TS]

  person holding the ballot makes the final decision that's a perfectly [TS]

  acceptable way to get he's 14 it again I think this is i think is a genuine [TS]

  mistake someone has made their number one [TS]

  fleshy flag flag flag when I could be an auto correct balance the nine wrong not [TS]

  like that though they weren't hello Internet logo [TS]

  you know what [TS]

  you know what [TS]

  and I think you just get some sort of power trip saying they're invalid and [TS]

  you beat me I think big softies your problem [TS]

  counting all of them feel like they're actually really coming down to the end [TS]

  here [TS]

  ok this one this person has been they've sent a postcard saying invalid bad luck [TS]

  with no votes and don't shred this think of the whales as a postcard is a picture [TS]

  of where the only thing stopping me shredding it is the lack of a shredder [TS]

  at the moment I kinda wanna keep them off posterity yeah I was gonna say the [TS]

  lack of a shredder and your natural hoarding tendencies [TS]

  the only thing that prevented shredded I am a hold on my wife is not home when [TS]

  she comes when you win like a parent's walk into the bedroom and the kids have [TS]

  got access to the chocolate and avoid a mess everywhere all over their faces I [TS]

  feel like I will be leaving many points with your wife when she was like oh your [TS]

  party to this leads to naughty kids look around us it's really exciting now that [TS]

  the boxes filled up so much you got a real sense of the proportions of the [TS]

  votes page one that's like it's really coming to come to life as an outline the [TS]

  magnitude of it all and the proportions of it all and other postcards to someone [TS]

  from someone who loves them have it we might have done intentionally wrecked on [TS]

  the family feuds we've caused I wanted it to be really close and I'm a [TS]

  landslide what would be a landslide is only a landslide if you win on what [TS]

  constitutes a landslide [TS]

  informally a landslide win by a pretty large margin so if you if you don't win [TS]

  the first round it can't be a landslide can only be a landslide if you win [TS]

  without the distribution of the distributor and even then I would feel [TS]

  like you would have to be like 60 percent when I look a birthday card D [TS]

  Sarah happy 21st birthday love from Rachel Hughes and breaking my heart I [TS]

  will be returning these [TS]

  postcards to eventually we're going to hand deliver them around town and I [TS]

  think you're with these people or is it part of their story they ended up here [TS]

  but there were no unless you can deliver that's where I feel like the weight of [TS]

  the nightingale ones here is pressing down on the 118 enough to create and now [TS]

  we're gonna get a black hole situation on reflection I wonder if someone would [TS]

  wish to some real time is that too boring thing to upload the it is not the [TS]

  expectation that someone is watching it is the funny part of uploading it to me [TS]

  right like that's the it's like a performance-based yeah right it's it's [TS]

  like the joke of it it's not that I'm expecting someone actually watching us [TS]

  do the whole fact it is the only way people will get to see their own vote go [TS]

  in tho yeah because otherwise you know we're doing it sped up so I think we [TS]

  definitely a blow the whole thing was just doing i think thats wins the [TS]

  biggest postcard we've got so far and of course it goes into your hands and [TS]

  you're totally accept what you think it's not acceptable and I have nothing [TS]

  that is not acceptable but just seems like of course you get this one great [TS]

  I'm putting into your and let's see where you put it now if you feel that it [TS]

  is a couple more handfuls of these things good things about stopping at the [TS]

  box in very mildly don't don't think I'm getting carried away but I'm very mildly [TS]

  feeling the emotion I felt like I want to run a half marathon which was due for [TS]

  me unlike coming down the final straight you feel this motion also when you when [TS]

  I first time I went to Everest you finally get back to the finally ended [TS]

  the trick you know your last hotel you can get to go home soon you will get [TS]

  quite overcome by emotion I'm feeling a mild version of that the moment which [TS]

  has just been completely scuppered by this is postcards and California of a [TS]

  naked man this is what the internet is is great at the internet is for horsing [TS]

  around [TS]

  concentrate on these final steps grand make a mistake this when you get [TS]

  careless [TS]

  coming down the mountain the dangerous time [TS]

  complacency sets in the finish lines inside one false step which is gonna [TS]

  overnight and given 21 books only thanks to your diligent compacting I cannot [TS]

  believe the number of misdirected pieces of mail it worrying is it really is my [TS]

  last one [TS]

  my last one comes from the University of Montana and it is a vote for white cross [TS]

  my last one is mailed from the United Kingdom has a picture of the Red Room in [TS]

  the White House and it is for healing gear the sort is complete we have five [TS]

  boxes of votes in front of us plus the red naughty box with all the mishaps [TS]

  clearly ireland gear is like the most full even with the clever compact him [TS]

  liking it is still by far the biggest fear is the biggest winner hii logo was [TS]

  the biggest loser flagging flagging public laws need counting their very [TS]

  close and white cross is the fourth fourth place a child logo looks like [TS]

  it's going to be the first eliminated if if they even comes to that if it comes [TS]

  to that will have to find out how to count mountain time I've bought these [TS]

  cool little counters so gonna sort of put them into the groups of 10 and [TS]

  counting or something maybe one of these things that we realize very quickly that [TS]

  we don't know what we're doing but our initial thought anyway is yet to try to [TS]

  back them into ten and on the clicker do 10 at a time ok and how they chant [TS]

  H sort of around the world of tents and then combine at two numbers right where [TS]

  you do your thing I'll do my thing in the first three months of 1020 campaign [TS]

  to your number in your head you think about that stuff now man had enough I [TS]

  just don't know how to count without hearing about the podcast I'm counting [TS]

  numbers in my head it a lot harder to talk to the year we're doing this I mean [TS]

  you realize I am i cant cuz I have to hear the number yeah podcasting ever [TS]

  created [TS]

  yes it is like the sound of clicks intimately space people are gonna love [TS]

  it tell me these clickers when a good purchase the best I was thinking all use [TS]

  a tally up on my phone but there's obviously a bazillion times better [TS]

  here's my first miscount on [TS]

  clause in the wrong box so we found one in the wrong books I made you notice [TS]

  that you are you not looking at the photo you do this very closely the [TS]

  minute you told me to do I found one miscount found a flag a flag in Ireland [TS]

  ebooks and another 11 of us had a brain fade from there looking to watch the [TS]

  videos back and check out would have been someone well I guarantee someone at [TS]

  some point will notice something we did wrong I take it one floor with the post [TS]

  cuts because they're all different sizes and textures it does make this part [TS]

  quite hard I can imagine a whole new ballot papers of the same it's a lot [TS]

  easier to count so yeah it's surprisingly hard to manage the [TS]

  different sizes of it definitely makes it much trickier hot and sweaty work [TS]

  this thing called podcasting work you end up sweating when you do not always a [TS]

  sweaty disgusting mess up the podcasters and take a shower so I counted [TS]

  880 how many of you up bro 930 1810 votes [TS]

  carry the 129 goes to attend goes to 181 is this why do you have a one of their [TS]

  thing there is right that was carrying it ok that's right isn't it yeah that's [TS]

  right right so niland gear 1810 votes on some reason the other boxes so that [TS]

  might slightly adjustable that ready but that's the benchmark so great and I've [TS]

  counted the dialogue is it fell apart of my man what you want me to do it got a [TS]

  hold of the new box here I want you to be more careful not shown these [TS]

  postcards quite as much respect as I'd like becoming Mr fancypants I am upset [TS]

  about going through them again start to see some really nice post cut mister [TS]

  first yeah there were there were a whole bunch that I wanted to stop him a [TS]

  comment but no time and I had a couple of yours obviously obviously spoiled [TS]

  ballots but you still accepted [TS]

  next probably club in Clause laws and I give him some suspicions about how will [TS]

  be sorted them so I feel like it's it's good to pay extra close attention yet [TS]

  the very fact that they switch positions suspicious to be ok so keep an eye out [TS]

  wrong votes here [TS]

  ok don't forget to reset you count up the sound of professionalism that's [TS]

  about as you pull them up just just just just keep them straight from the hook [TS]

  put them in the drop the man is how close to the have to be for thinking the [TS]

  same thing because you know we might be 330 votes out here all 16 [TS]

  it is it is very possible that our margin of error is a hundred plus or [TS]

  minus like with the with the counters with all the regular counting yeah so in [TS]

  theory we were doing a LAN election and and the vote was within like two hundred [TS]

  I would think that would like on a proportionally society election that [TS]

  would be a recount kind of situation yet but I have to go home at some points [TS]

  910 number so that his club enclosed countered and are countered 360 357 [TS]

  hundred and ten [TS]

  massive difference is gonna go to preferences [TS]

  well if you figure this is almost half that right but common cause and flying [TS]

  flag probably have about the same and then plus the final two is gonna be [TS]

  closed all right said it reminded an island near 1810 clubbin closed seven [TS]

  hundred and ten now we're going to have a look at flag flag flag man what you [TS]

  mean what's with me just put him in either I put him in the way I put him in [TS]

  we got counting to do the counting is the thing you've got a range and [TS]

  afterwards doesn't end there could be a recount and if there was a wreck and [TS]

  you'll be wishing you didn't know if there's a recount I'll be coming up [TS]

  tomorrow will bring a divorce lawyer with our weekend in 2010 course you're [TS]

  getting divorced [TS]

  interesting and it feels important but it's less fun that's kind of how I try [TS]

  to arrange life so we've just finished flag flag I'm adding 400 400 400 exactly [TS]

  suspiciously but truly exactly I 804 flag but while doing that we found to [TS]

  incorrectly sorted votes for nail in here so no longer has gone up by a mere [TS]

  to that tally which makes a 1812 and flag flag 800 which gives at second [TS]

  place over club enclose a further 90 back on seven hundred and ten if we had [TS]

  together flag flag and club and close we come to 1510 still three hundred votes [TS]

  and if the other two candidates white cross and a child though ago surpassed [TS]

  300 we are going to go to preferences [TS]

  they don't surpassed 300 I think the interesting thing here as well is that [TS]

  flag flag included a clause had some kind of time variance in the voters [TS]

  because club in Clause and flag flag switch places like clubbin clause in the [TS]

  beginning really started out strong and flag flag over took it and I don't know [TS]

  which way it was like a switch box boxes we counts will be going backwards right [TS]

  but there was there was some time variance in voter preference between [TS]

  those two something may have happened on red or something may have happened onto [TS]

  motivated voters who knows who knows well we missed [TS]

  we just found condition when we just found an extra vote for flag flag taking [TS]

  it up to eight hundred and one not 800 reasonably you thought that was neat [TS]

  terrible wow you love that you are Mr fussy britches about the whole area you [TS]

  like some kind of animal we need Waycross next cross this is a child [TS]

  labor costs I think it might not matter if it's going to come down to the wire [TS]

  though does time to count white cross get distracted driving in swamp n stamp [TS]

  on it throughout my counts stop this is not the time to joking don't make me [TS]

  think that is not the time for joking that's exactly the time we finished the [TS]

  white cross be quicker obviously with less of its I have one hundred and sixty [TS]

  146 so that is a total of three hundred and six cross so we are going to [TS]

  preference we are gonna preferences if you combine flag flag clubbing clothes [TS]

  white cross it actually surpasses niland gear we still haven't even counted I [TS]

  just ordered the disclosure is like too short and they're not supposed to get a [TS]

  couple short it's like yes I literally too short I think I'm sorry but I think [TS]

  I think despite the unpopularity of a child logo I think we have more than [TS]

  five votes for it [TS]

  hii logo for ensuring that we go to one round of preferences so just to recap [TS]

  dialing gear is out in front but the next three which flag flag clubbing [TS]

  clothes and white cross combined actually still photo 5 sure year but we [TS]

  have got the actual logo votes to count which will put those bottom for combined [TS]

  above niland a child [TS]

  counties ones up growing reset your counters [TS]

  can't ever going to be delirious on a sea of people has been a child logo is [TS]

  countered I had 85 9474 each other guy writes so have you calculate that you're [TS]

  fine let's see how many total votes there were like a place together for me [TS]

  grow near 1812 flag flag 801 clubbin clause seven hundred and ten white cross [TS]

  three hundred and six hii logo 174 3800 and three votes total ok now what [TS]

  percentage did you get to that divided by that [TS]

  112 by 33 47.6% of the vote now in a first past the post election to be game [TS]

  over we will be finished the game is not over the game is not over [TS]

  we have one round of preferences to distribute and then to see where we are [TS]

  but we have been roped into moving Christmas tree correct I don't know if [TS]

  we have to move the Christmas tree yet but we do need stop going after a brief [TS]

  break in moving a Christmas tree way back and we have found we missed 18 [TS]

  child logo vote it had a crack so to speak said that is added into the HID [TS]

  logo tally which he still keeps it firmly in last place but its 175 the [TS]

  actual number takes the overall number of votes to 3,800 and forward by our [TS]

  reckoning niland gear has fallen 91 or 92 92 91 votes shy of having over 50% [TS]

  and being winner so now we take last-place HMO go [TS]

  distribute references redistribute references to think everyone listening [TS]

  pop understands how this works or should we need to explain this or is this [TS]

  common knowledge I think very briefly we can just say that we're going to do is [TS]

  now look at the second choice of all of the ballots some of the votes I i do I [TS]

  have noticed already people haven't listened to second choice so if that's [TS]

  the case that balances just discarded right it doesn't it doesn't count [TS]

  anymore in the election and yeah the question isn't nearly a year can get [TS]

  ninety of the second preference votes of this match wins and if not then we go to [TS]

  another round of preferences do you think people listening might be thinking [TS]

  well whoever voted for a child logo has gone from a loser to now being the most [TS]

  powerful virtues of oh they seem to have overpower their second choice is to [TS]

  decide the whole election this is precisely how this is always represented [TS]

  22 elections yet but yes that's why it is called an instant runoff vote is that [TS]

  in theory I what this is simulating is doing an election multiple times over [TS]

  multiple stages where you say we are eliminating the last candidate and now [TS]

  we're gonna run the whole election again of the top four but we're not going to [TS]

  do that that's what instant runoff is just simulating is eliminating the route [TS]

  the worst person or the the one with the fewest number of votes and acting as [TS]

  though the whole election is taking place again without that person there is [TS]

  an accurate assumption that if we were to run again with just the four [TS]

  candidates now be a flag fly club [TS]

  cross that all the people would vote the same way except the HID logo voters I [TS]

  mean you in some sense you can say you know for sure it wouldn't always happen [TS]

  precisely the same way because time is a lapsing right and people can change [TS]

  their minds so you there is like a small amount of accuracy that you are losing [TS]

  for a vast game of time [TS]

  alright so here they hoi votes [TS]

  so for example I'm taking one out and its second choice was clubbin closed so [TS]

  I'm putting gonna put that in a little sub pile for clubbing clothes and will [TS]

  do this for all the hii votes [TS]

  looking at their second preference nail in gear started to get some of those all [TS]

  important ninety that desires are a lot more reading this time right now you [TS]

  have to think about it was you distribute them now and he's doing ok it [TS]

  is getting a lot of references this person hasn't put a second preference on [TS]

  their vote so there is also discuss what you thinkin great how's it looking [TS]

  the truth is I i'm having to focus a tremendous amount of looking at the [TS]

  second please I'm having a hard time thinking anything else it seems broadly [TS]

  to be following the trend of the overall election which is what I would expects [TS]

  but we will have to wait until the final count it seems sure to say this is my [TS]

  virgin preferential vote distribution way I find it very exciting [TS]

  everything I hoped it would be but you never run an election like this and it's [TS]

  cool it's good so I do the approval voting their finances good wish it would [TS]

  go to another round I don't know if you don't want to ever end reading that i'm [TS]

  ok great set of preferences have been distributed everyone who voted for a [TS]

  child they go we've looked at their second choice and attributed them to the [TS]

  other fled corrects now first of all in my hand at the moment [TS]

  other votes of the people who voted for a child though he didn't specify second [TS]

  preference but wanted a child logo or nothing bad luck to them is 12345678 of [TS]

  them now the next thing with looking at is how many white cross people white [TS]

  crosses in fourth place how many of the HRI does have they picked up and [TS]

  preferences 123456789 10 + 10 taking the white cross total up to three hundred [TS]

  and sixteen now clubbing clothes [TS]

  was on 710 in third place a good 91 votes behind flag flag how many of the [TS]

  preference votes did that did clubbing clothes pick up to make up some ground [TS]

  didn't do well I felt like it was doing well but but it quickly counted 31 [TS]

  get their team some really yeah so there's an extra 44 votes [TS]

  clubbing clothes taking clubbin close up to seven hundred and fifty-four flag [TS]

  flag eight hundred and one over a year I think it's gonna need a miracle here but [TS]

  let's say I had 21 great did you have 16 so there's another thirty-seven [TS]

  flag taking it up to 838 how many preferences didn't get if it got more [TS]

  than ninety it's the winner if it doesn't get more than ninety we will [TS]

  need to distribute the preferences of our fourth place holder which is why I [TS]

  cross so we need to see denying year get that ninety issued earnings were gone I [TS]

  got 3145 that 76 so that takes the total for naming gear to 1888 the question is [TS]

  that more than half with the eliminated voters ok this is quickly to do some [TS]

  math subject so we need to now add up the total for nailing gear leggy flag [TS]

  clubbing clothes and white cross and basically those eight people whose vote [TS]

  count for nothing now right I gonna be coming off the tally right so i'll read [TS]

  you the type that totals for the four leading flag ok go to so many people [TS]

  will not be listening to the podcast amor [TS]

  just some people have pens and notepads [TS]

  be following this like crazy now India [TS]

  white flag flag eight hundred and thirty-eight clubbin closed seven 5454 [TS]

  Whitecross three hundred and sixteen 16 the total valid ballots counted is 3796 [TS]

  what you would need to win would be you would need to win 1898 ballots to win so [TS]

  here is 10 [TS]

  has not yet to the first distribution of preferences receive the necessary [TS]

  majority in gear is being the Zeno's paradox of this is going to get closer [TS]

  and closer maybe we need to distribute what do you sell disappointed this is [TS]

  exciting but fled you flag clubbing clothes on what cross-country illicitly [TS]

  come back from here can I they can if nobody votes for nail and gears we now [TS]

  have all of the white cross votes [TS]

  this is all the people that put white crosses their first preference plus the [TS]

  pic plus the HID logo people who have by default ended up voting for white cross [TS]

  and we're gonna start redistributing things but as soon as he gets ten we [TS]

  know that it went we know that it wins it cannot win and then so we can stop [TS]

  for the night [TS]

  rights and you can get a train home we stopped going to start stop with these I [TS]

  guess let's keep an island you want to order them so they were first when I put [TS]

  out tonight knowing morning and another 18 more needed than the first one for me [TS]

  seven more needed 4616 more the other 15 more needed for mailing in close up of [TS]

  course making a leg flag flag flag for symmetrical year years ago now it is a [TS]

  23456789 he needs three more I've got one more for now here I don't know if [TS]

  it's gonna make it man [TS]

  now hang on before this is this person who voted for white cross this second [TS]

  preference was a child logo which it can't go into it cannot go to this third [TS]

  preference is nailing here and it goes in a linear and I'll use when the [TS]

  election is that the tampon that's ten I'm stan had to distribute 14 of white [TS]

  crosses an island near 23 Clore 56789 10 citizens of hello Internet you have your [TS]

  flag the nail and gear [TS]
