Hello Internet

H.I. #77: Woah, Dude


00:00:00   okay Brady I need an honest answer how

00:00:02   stupid do I look are you wearing like

00:00:07   the earbuds with no wise the new apple

00:00:10   thing in me

00:00:11   yeah i got the new apple earpods yeah

00:00:13   I'm not cool with him you're not cool

00:00:15   with them I wanted your opinion on this

00:00:17   you're gonna give them a thumbs down yep

00:00:19   down so the answer to how stupid do I

00:00:22   look is very more stupid than you should

00:00:25   the lack of wires coming out of these

00:00:27   devices now I'm just realizing at every

00:00:29   turn the problems is eventually going to

00:00:30   cause me if I stay in the apple

00:00:32   ecosystem you know I went and looked at

00:00:34   google pixel in the shop I wouldn't ask

00:00:36   to hold 10 did you I did

00:00:39   that's how serious I'm getting there

00:00:41   that's very serious did you check out

00:00:42   what the wolf emoji looks like on the

00:00:44   pixel was that your number one thing

00:00:45   that you're a Salesman didn't get to

00:00:47   that stage they had this huge security

00:00:50   contraption bolted to it looks so you

00:00:52   couldn't really get a good feel of what

00:00:53   it was like without this huge thing

00:00:55   glued to the bottom of a bit cord and I

00:00:57   was like this is ridiculous man I want

00:00:59   to hold one with that this stupid thing

00:01:00   so they had to go out the back and get

00:01:02   one of their own and bring it out to me

00:01:03   to home

00:01:04   what like the salesman's private phone

00:01:06   yeah which had some skin on it as well

00:01:10   it was bloody amateur hour so I yes I do

00:01:14   think those pods the Daft they look so

00:01:16   fragile in the ear to that just like

00:01:18   gonna fall out all the time do they stay

00:01:20   in nicely i have to say the airport's do

00:01:22   stay in remarkably well I actually think

00:01:25   that they stay in better than the wired

00:01:27   headphones because you don't have the

00:01:29   wire tugging on them all the time

00:01:31   mm I've seen a few people wearing them

00:01:33   around London while I'm wearing my own

00:01:35   headphones and every time I see somebody

00:01:37   else wearing the Apple earpods I think

00:01:39   wow that looks really silly and then of

00:01:41   course realized that I to one of these

00:01:43   people walking around looking really

00:01:44   silly yeah i think this is like a

00:01:46   perfect example of how like fashion is

00:01:49   accepted among people like it's a thing

00:01:50   that looks strange because people

00:01:52   haven't seen it i don't know i think

00:01:54   people get used to it but it's very very

00:01:56   weird to have them you know great you

00:01:58   are an Apple watch that in my eyes

00:01:59   you're shameless

00:02:00   ok I think clearly as far as sticking

00:02:03   out in a crowd that these of course

00:02:06   white apple air pods stick out a

00:02:09   thousand times more than Apple watch

00:02:12   so I'm going

00:02:12   disagree with you on that one I'm sure

00:02:14   we'll get used to them in no time and

00:02:15   the world keeps turning you know it's

00:02:17   Australia Day today by the way as we're

00:02:19   recording is that Australian

00:02:21   independence day

00:02:22   mm no it's not independence day at marks

00:02:25   when the first flight arrived in

00:02:27   Australia to sort of start colonizing

00:02:30   that's kind of controversial because I

00:02:32   guess you could say it's wipe out the

00:02:34   Aborigines day

00:02:36   well i hope the meaning of the day is

00:02:38   changing a bit now there's a bit more

00:02:39   recognition of past wrongs but the date

00:02:42   does actually celebrate the arrival of

00:02:44   the first fleet the arrival of the first

00:02:46   flight was there because of other

00:02:47   reasons funny banned Sydney how about

00:02:49   detailed and kind of germs and steel

00:02:50   that's why the Aborigines didn't build

00:02:52   the first fleet well happy australia day

00:02:55   thank you

00:02:57   now grey yeah it's been such a long time

00:03:01   since we spoke because you've been away

00:03:04   having special great i'm again when you

00:03:06   sort of disappear into the mountains and

00:03:08   meditate on the meaning of life of that

00:03:11   I have accumulated 36 items on my little

00:03:15   document of things I'd like to talk

00:03:17   about next time we do hello internet and

00:03:18   we can't possibly do them all so I've

00:03:21   done bit of a color but I have to warn

00:03:23   you I'm overflowing with things i want

00:03:26   to talk about

00:03:26   luckily a lot of them when i read back

00:03:28   through the list now I think I don't

00:03:29   care about that as much as I thought I

00:03:30   did but some of them are still on my

00:03:32   mind say we might spill this list over a

00:03:35   few episodes like that works fine for me

00:03:37   Brady i thoroughly welcome your 36 items

00:03:41   of follow-up but probably the highlight

00:03:43   of the last month or so while you've

00:03:46   been off on planet gray has been that I

00:03:50   went to a hello Internet vinyl listening

00:03:53   body i am genuinely so envious of this I

00:03:59   really Envy is that this is a thing that

00:04:01   you did you didn't just go to a party

00:04:03   tho Brady I think the key element here

00:04:05   is that you crashed a hello Internet

00:04:09   listening party I did I went an amount

00:04:12   they didn't know I was coming and i'm a

00:04:14   bit reluctant to say this because i

00:04:17   think it will make them feel like

00:04:18   disappointed by my attendance in some

00:04:20   ways but I actually told you I was going

00:04:23   to do it because I the one I went to was

00:04:25   in London

00:04:25   and I said gray I've seen on reddit that

00:04:27   these people are getting together and

00:04:29   they're meeting in this picture but

00:04:30   after a final party i'm thinking of

00:04:31   going do you want to come with me and

00:04:34   you were totally up for you actually

00:04:37   said I'd love to do it but unfortunately

00:04:39   you couldn't because you had just gone

00:04:41   away like the day before

00:04:43   mhm so I don't want those teams here at

00:04:45   the party do you think are we could have

00:04:46   had great that would have been even

00:04:47   better we got start with Brady

00:04:50   second-rate Brady could have had a great

00:04:53   great now and I so it was just me better

00:04:58   it was very good fun and also though I

00:05:00   have to say after what grace said in a

00:05:03   previous episode about how I should

00:05:05   never contact him asking him to send a

00:05:07   video because it's something like he

00:05:09   wouldn't be willing to do the way that

00:05:10   directed to help me out no of course not

00:05:12   no I would never do something like that

00:05:13   great did send the video unannounced I

00:05:16   was just sitting at the table with the

00:05:17   team's chewing the fat having paints are

00:05:19   having a chat and suddenly my phone

00:05:20   pings and it was a video message from

00:05:22   gray like to the team's was like I was

00:05:26   great just sent you all the message

00:05:27   who wants to see it and seriously a few

00:05:30   people considered leaving the room

00:05:32   because they didn't want to see your

00:05:33   face like we're going on I don't know

00:05:35   what to do

00:05:35   those are the best kind of listeners as

00:05:37   far as I'm concerned they were really

00:05:38   serious about their face boilers in the

00:05:41   end everyone stayed and watched your

00:05:43   little message as well so the idea of

00:05:46   crashing the hello Internet listening

00:05:47   party it really appealed to me I really

00:05:50   regretted that I couldn't be there and

00:05:51   so I felt at least send a video right I

00:05:53   can be there sort of remotely kind of in

00:05:55   a little bit of a sad way and i was

00:05:57   wondering if anybody was going to stand

00:05:59   on the other side of the phone while the

00:06:00   message was playing so they didn't have

00:06:02   to actually get the face boiled I have

00:06:04   to say to the people who attended the

00:06:05   party just to be clear

00:06:07   Brady like eighty percent of the value

00:06:10   of getting us to the party because brady

00:06:12   is the life of the party

00:06:14   I am NOT the life of the party well

00:06:16   whether that's true or not that's what

00:06:17   they got so

00:06:19   but so how was it from your perspective

00:06:21   we haven't discussed it all like I'm

00:06:23   dying to know how did the logistics of

00:06:24   this go down well it was it some

00:06:27   location in London and I knew their

00:06:30   meeting in the basement of a pizza place

00:06:31   but i had no idea how many people were

00:06:34   gonna be there and I was thinking it

00:06:36   would be two or three people

00:06:38   mm I thought it might feel a bit strange

00:06:40   flat just two people are sitting

00:06:42   listening to a record and I turn up and

00:06:44   they're like are high so I wanted to

00:06:46   find out information without spoiling

00:06:48   the fact i was thinking of going and

00:06:50   after spending way too long on a train

00:06:52   with flaky 3g reception trying to set up

00:06:55   a fake reddit account which is much

00:06:58   harder than you told me it would be no I

00:07:00   don't know what you mean with your

00:07:01   kingdom and thumbs but it takes two

00:07:03   seconds to set up a sock puppet account

00:07:05   on reddit to sac there i was having a

00:07:07   few problems so I said after the captain

00:07:09   contact the organizer and said is it

00:07:11   still on

00:07:12   I'm hoping that he would like contact me

00:07:14   back and say yeah there's how many of

00:07:16   the many people coming and he took ages

00:07:19   to reply to them and then eventually he

00:07:22   didn't he just said yes and I didn't

00:07:24   want to like seem too nosy because that

00:07:26   would give it away so i just had to like

00:07:28   leave it at that okay well I'm going on

00:07:32   I don't know who's gonna be there at

00:07:33   like the idea that didn't want to raise

00:07:35   suspicions that a brand-new reddit

00:07:38   account might be yuge just has that

00:07:41   information about crashing the party I

00:07:43   don't think this would cross anybody's

00:07:45   mind that wondering like hey this new

00:07:47   guy do you think it's brady I was

00:07:50   probably overthinking a little bit

00:07:52   anyway

00:07:53   yeah based on our text message

00:07:54   conversations about this you were

00:07:55   definitely overthinking it and

00:07:56   overcautious but it was delightful to

00:07:58   meet ya

00:07:59   so then I got to the pizza place and I

00:08:02   said is there a group of people

00:08:03   downstairs in our life

00:08:05   yep then just as I was getting to the

00:08:07   bottom of the stairs I bumped into

00:08:08   someone who turned out to be the

00:08:10   organizer and like I didn't really know

00:08:13   what kind of reaction to expect it's not

00:08:15   like you know Elvis has turned up or

00:08:16   something it's just like some dude say I

00:08:19   wasn't expecting like you know

00:08:21   screams of joy or anything like that and

00:08:23   he just kind of went Brady the best way

00:08:28   I can describe is it was like I had said

00:08:31   I might come but I wasn't sure

00:08:33   the Hat turns out ahead that was how I

00:08:35   would describe the reaction i tell you

00:08:39   what it was really great and we had a

00:08:41   brilliant brilliant night it was not

00:08:43   really good fun everyone was really

00:08:45   great

00:08:46   there was about 10 people there i think

00:08:48   and we ordered pizzas and we had some

00:08:51   beers and then put on side one and then

00:08:55   put on side two and I tell you what the

00:08:59   most interesting thing for me was

00:09:01   because I never thinks about hello

00:09:02   internet huh I never think of it as

00:09:04   something that's funny

00:09:06   mmm i totally understand like I just

00:09:08   think it's you and me talking we joke

00:09:10   around with each other because that's

00:09:11   just what we do but like the thing that

00:09:13   surprised me was how often people were

00:09:14   laughing at the podcast like it was a

00:09:17   funny show em and I got great pleasure

00:09:19   from that because it's always a nice

00:09:20   thing isn't it when people are laughing

00:09:21   at things that are supposed to be

00:09:24   entertaining and you know we never get

00:09:25   feedback from an audience that we never

00:09:27   know what people think and saying people

00:09:29   smile and also seeing people like nor

00:09:31   shake their head or are you know typical

00:09:33   gray or saying people look at each other

00:09:36   and not all the in jokes and stuff it

00:09:38   was like a human beings do this into

00:09:40   this I kind of forget that sometimes it

00:09:42   was a really nice experience just to be

00:09:44   observing people listening to the

00:09:46   podcast and then afterwards we hung out

00:09:48   and we spoke and it was a really great

00:09:50   evening

00:09:50   I totally agree with your description of

00:09:53   this thing because when we're recording

00:09:54   the show and when I'm editing the show I

00:09:58   always very much think of it in the same

00:10:00   way that it's you and me having a

00:10:01   conversation and the listener is just a

00:10:05   silent member of that conversation but

00:10:08   yeah I don't really think of it as a

00:10:10   thing that would be funny so it would be

00:10:12   very strange to sit in a room full of

00:10:15   people and here when that laughs like I

00:10:16   think i would be surprised every time

00:10:18   like every once in a while when my wife

00:10:20   listen to the show and she laughed at

00:10:22   something I'm always kind of surprise

00:10:23   and I think what was the thing that was

00:10:24   funny

00:10:25   mm but I'm also realizing that I think

00:10:27   you and I would have had a bit of a

00:10:29   logistic disagreement had been able to

00:10:32   attend that evening because i don't

00:10:35   think i could actually have sat through

00:10:37   listening to our own podcast in a room

00:10:40   full of people also listening to the

00:10:42   podcast i think i would have waited

00:10:44   upstairs in the pizza place

00:10:47   till the show is over and then go

00:10:49   downstairs and talk to everybody because

00:10:50   i think i would be too uncomfortable to

00:10:52   be sitting in a room like hey

00:10:54   everybody's listening to the thing that

00:10:56   I've made i think i would have to wait

00:10:57   somewhere else

00:10:58   don't be like you go ahead Brady i'll

00:11:00   come down later I mean I did offer to

00:11:02   leave when they started listening I did

00:11:04   say is this too weird for you guys to

00:11:06   have me here should i just go upstairs

00:11:07   for a bit and they're like no no I mean

00:11:11   I can understand that concern and like

00:11:13   it was in the back of my head too but it

00:11:14   didn't feel like that at the time they

00:11:15   had been looking and nodding and smiling

00:11:17   and there was a bit when you would say

00:11:19   something that would be typically great

00:11:20   they would just look at me and go huh

00:11:22   I feel for Brady and I smile back it was

00:11:24   almost like you were you know having a

00:11:25   little laugh behind your friends back

00:11:27   right everyone in the room rolling their

00:11:29   eyes at me perfect yeah yeah it was

00:11:30   enjoying things as well but it wasn't

00:11:33   too weird like that say I'm glad I did

00:11:35   it

00:11:35   so there you go Tim's if you are

00:11:37   arranging listening parties around the

00:11:40   world you never know when one of us

00:11:43   might show up well Brady it wouldn't be

00:11:49   hello internet without plane crash

00:11:52   corner I see that one of your 36 items

00:11:54   here is plane crash corner

00:11:56   well that's what the fans want is it

00:11:59   always so uncertain with the corner that

00:12:02   makes me the most uncomfortable the

00:12:04   corner actually like most likely to be

00:12:06   blindsided by something horrible that I

00:12:07   don't know about have always strings

00:12:10   doubt about whether or not the fans do

00:12:12   like playing Crash corner but here we

00:12:14   are our know anecdotally it's probably

00:12:18   the favor of over conus of course yes

00:12:19   all of the fans who love the corner

00:12:22   contact you about it yeah so we have

00:12:24   plane crash corner

00:12:25   what is this i still think after all

00:12:27   this time you don't fully grasp plane

00:12:29   crash corner as well it's not like every

00:12:31   horrible crash that happens I talk about

00:12:33   who the thing I just wanted to note was

00:12:35   that back in the early early days of

00:12:38   hello internet we had the mh370 the

00:12:41   Malaysian Airlines plane that has

00:12:43   vanished and just flew out to say and no

00:12:45   one ever knew what happened and they're

00:12:46   all these searches for and back then I

00:12:48   was just so confident that and find

00:12:51   eventually they have always technology

00:12:53   and they're looking for out in the

00:12:55   Indian Ocean somewhere where they think

00:12:57   it went

00:12:57   who

00:12:58   and just as time went by I began to have

00:13:01   my doubts and now they've called the

00:13:04   search off the search is over and they

00:13:07   have a founder and I just never thought

00:13:09   that would happen a whole plane full of

00:13:11   people never to be found which I find

00:13:13   extraordinary I mean the oceans a big

00:13:16   place right

00:13:17   it must have disappeared in the ocean

00:13:19   yeah but technologies moved on the

00:13:21   Titanic went missing in deepwater who

00:13:24   and for a long time it wasn't fair but

00:13:26   then technology came along it was like

00:13:28   yeah we can find it now and I know you

00:13:30   knew roughly where the titanic sank

00:13:32   because they rescue people in stone but

00:13:34   i'm just amazed they can't find it and I

00:13:36   know how big the indian ocean is I'm

00:13:39   just amazed i couldn't find and there

00:13:40   was talk this minister from the

00:13:42   Malaysian government said they were

00:13:43   going to offer a reward to private

00:13:46   searches like if someone could find that

00:13:47   they get a reward and that quite excited

00:13:49   make cool yeah it's like treasure

00:13:50   hunting

00:13:51   I know I even wonder if those two

00:13:52   legends that went to South America and

00:13:54   they're on their way up the mountain

00:13:55   might say alright we're doing it but

00:13:58   then a couple days later it was another

00:13:59   story from someone more senior Malaysian

00:14:01   government saying that guy probably was

00:14:03   shooting his mouth off and they might

00:14:05   not be a reward

00:14:06   so I don't know if there's a reward or

00:14:07   not if there was a reward would you be

00:14:09   tempted to try and claim it seems like a

00:14:13   brady project i don't think i have the

00:14:15   technical capabilities i think taking a

00:14:17   piece of paper with pie printed on and

00:14:19   rolling out a runway as one thing

00:14:21   yeah searching for a missing plane in

00:14:22   the indian ocean that's another kettle

00:14:24   of fish

00:14:25   I don't know don't you want to progress

00:14:26   in the difficulty of your projects

00:14:28   you're a man who's been on Everest

00:14:30   things like making a missing plane in

00:14:33   the Indian Ocean

00:14:34   how cool would that be and listen I

00:14:36   think you also have quite an audience

00:14:38   here i think if you really wanted to you

00:14:40   could draw on the right people to help

00:14:42   make this happen

00:14:43   yeah just say i'm reading are you

00:14:45   talking about Kickstarter or something

00:14:46   patreon is ready guys that he's doing

00:14:48   yet to say I don't know I'm just the

00:14:50   ideas guy here right you're the executor

00:14:51   right you make things happen you get

00:14:53   vinyl record shipped across the world

00:14:55   and I'm sure that you can find mh370 I

00:14:59   think you could do it would make a great

00:15:00   YouTube video they would make quite a

00:15:02   video to get free berated very quickly

00:15:05   that's the main reason i don't want to

00:15:07   do it because I know just get free bird

00:15:08   straight away anyway you know what

00:15:10   fair enough you know what i was going to

00:15:11   sort of clarify correctly when you refer

00:15:13   to me as the man that's been on Everest

00:15:15   but I quite like you saying that so I'm

00:15:17   just gonna let that one slide

00:15:18   wait a second you tell me that's not

00:15:20   true well I wouldn't say I had been on

00:15:23   Everest here's the thing i specifically

00:15:25   phrase that not like you've climbed

00:15:27   Everest because I don't think that's

00:15:29   entirely true which have been on at base

00:15:31   camp right that counts

00:15:32   I don't know where you would technically

00:15:34   say being on Everest start so I'm not

00:15:36   sure base camp would count but I think

00:15:39   you've got to get through the cumbias

00:15:40   fall before you can say you're on

00:15:42   Everest homebush mumu I think base camp

00:15:45   that counts is how concerned eighty

00:15:48   percent of the danger of getting to

00:15:50   everest is getting on the plane that

00:15:51   gets you there so if you're on the other

00:15:52   end of that plane you make it to base

00:15:54   camp that counters on Everest

00:15:56   well like I say I could correct you on

00:15:58   this stuff but you're just making me

00:15:59   sound awesome so why would I will let

00:16:02   that stand now grey we talk about not

00:16:05   really thinking about who's listening to

00:16:06   the podcast and one thing I often forget

00:16:08   is that one person who uses the podcast

00:16:12   is my sister for helping my Neffe go to

00:16:17   sleep it's like his thing like he goes

00:16:19   to bed and sometimes instead of a

00:16:20   bedtime story he can have like 20

00:16:23   minutes of Uncle Brady are that's the

00:16:25   sweet sounds wait but she's just being

00:16:28   lazy and she playing at hello internet

00:16:30   so he listens to hello internet when I

00:16:32   think that's why he said just float love

00:16:36   i love the idea that not only are we

00:16:38   putting grown adults to sleep with the

00:16:39   podcast at the house that children being

00:16:41   put to sleep well it sounds to me like

00:16:43   maybe we're putting my sister to sleep

00:16:45   but not my nephew because what happened

00:16:47   in our pre christmas episode was when we

00:16:51   started talking about elf on the shelf

00:16:53   and I mentioned how it was this toy like

00:16:58   my sister had sewn down wasn't listening

00:17:00   and my little nephew who has an elf on

00:17:02   the show flight was not so great he

00:17:04   talking about

00:17:05   and can I just say for the record and to

00:17:08   my little nephew who been listening

00:17:09   right now your elf on the shelf is

00:17:12   definitely not a toy

00:17:14   Nestle is a real elf and you be a good

00:17:17   boy

00:17:18   because Nestle's what

00:17:19   and what uncle Brady said about toys was

00:17:22   confusing and not right but Nestle is a

00:17:25   real elf and you be a good boy and i

00:17:27   look forward to seeing you again soon

00:17:29   leave your uncle breaking up

00:17:30   there's no reason to doubt uncle Brady

00:17:33   exactly and if it also did get me

00:17:35   thinking about the Easter Bunny and I

00:17:37   just want to ask you a quick question

00:17:38   gray ok shut your eyes

00:17:41   ok what does the easter bunny look like

00:17:43   a big in pink

00:17:46   okay because that's what i wanted to

00:17:48   find out is the Easter Bunny to you like

00:17:51   a rabbit or is the Easter Bunny to you

00:17:53   like a man in a rabbit so it's totally a

00:17:55   man in a rabbit suit that's what the

00:17:57   Easter Bunny is like to make the Easter

00:17:59   Bunny is like a six-foot man and as

00:18:02   ill-fitting so carrying a basket full of

00:18:04   chocolate eggs

00:18:06   yeah he might be white for me I don't

00:18:08   know if he's pink he's definitely

00:18:10   bipedal for a step that's true yeah let

00:18:12   me send you a picture of the easter

00:18:13   bunny i'm waiting I've still got that

00:18:15   gorgeous picture of you looking at me

00:18:17   with your present to us at all

00:18:21   that's the Easter buying yeah you've got

00:18:26   mean for everything everything

00:18:28   look all I did was I went into google i

00:18:31   typed in Easter Bunny and that's what

00:18:34   came up

00:18:34   that was the first of several terrifying

00:18:38   Easter Bunny photos right here's another

00:18:41   one you're googling scary easter bunny

00:18:43   you're not googling just a taster body

00:18:45   no I am NOT a typed in easter bunny this

00:18:49   is what i found the Easter Bunny is a

00:18:51   friendly man in a pink so not the ones

00:18:53   that great has just been placed together

00:18:54   i'm sending Brady nightmare versions of

00:18:57   the Easter Bunny the kind of Easter

00:18:59   Bunny that you would have in a horror

00:19:00   movie but now in my head it's a smiling

00:19:03   happy bunny that is human sized not

00:19:07   smiling the bunny face can't smile it

00:19:09   looks friendly it's like in a cartoon

00:19:10   you know rabbits in a cartoon can smile

00:19:13   it doesn't have to be accurately rabbit

00:19:14   face it's like cartoony rapid face know

00:19:16   the thing that I'm confused about here

00:19:17   is there anybody who thinks that the

00:19:19   Easter Bunny is that like a rabbit

00:19:21   yeah i think there are some people who

00:19:22   grow up with the Easter Bunny mythology

00:19:26   being a a small rabbit on all fours but

00:19:29   with magic powers obviously to deliver

00:19:31   chocolate eggs

00:19:32   not standing out person but is this

00:19:34   version of the Easter Bunny mean is he

00:19:36   laying the eggs like the cadbury bunny

00:19:38   rabbit start leg but they don't deliver

00:19:40   magic chocolate eggs either I'm just I

00:19:42   don't understand I don't know how the

00:19:44   all four small rabbit actually delivers

00:19:47   the eggs if you grew up believing the

00:19:49   easter bunny was an actual rabbit tell

00:19:52   us and tell us how it negotiated the

00:19:55   mechanics of delivering the eggs because

00:19:56   we'd like to know because in my head the

00:19:58   man-sized Easter Bunny has a magic

00:20:00   basket from which you can draw an

00:20:02   infinite number of eggs yeah like Santa

00:20:04   Claus and his magic sack it's the same

00:20:07   idea

00:20:07   yeah but an actual magic Easter Bunny

00:20:10   laying eggs for all the children on

00:20:12   Easter this horrible era sounds like

00:20:14   torment but like a man in a suit with a

00:20:16   magic basket that has infinite eggs and

00:20:18   you're cool with that yeah that's fine

00:20:20   that's a okay great i just want to check

00:20:22   i just wanted to that question for you

00:20:25   then the Tooth Fairy human-sized very

00:20:28   size small

00:20:29   hmm like Audrey sighs no okay maybe

00:20:32   smaller even site via i don't know i

00:20:36   don't really have a good idea of the

00:20:37   Tooth Fairy in my mind now I think the

00:20:40   Tooth Fairy was less of a ever real

00:20:43   fixture in my childhood and more of a

00:20:46   transparent money delivery mechanism

00:20:49   I mean I believed but i think the

00:20:51   problem is you see less depictions of

00:20:53   the tooth fairy

00:20:54   mm I mean you see the most depictions of

00:20:56   Santa and that's why we all agree on

00:20:58   what he looks like

00:20:59   Easter Bunny there does seem to be a bit

00:21:02   of a range and that's why we can discuss

00:21:04   it but you hardly ever see depictions of

00:21:06   the tooth fairy

00:21:07   because it's not like this you know

00:21:08   Tooth Fairy cards and tooth fairy

00:21:10   branding because we all lose their teeth

00:21:12   at different times so we don't really

00:21:14   know what the Tooth Fairy looks like

00:21:15   it's a great unknown great unknown

00:21:17   hmm maybe there'll be some fanart of two

00:21:19   theories LOL out tooth fairy I'm sure

00:21:21   there will be this episode of Hello

00:24:01   supporting the show so under the broad

00:24:05   category follow-up I guess we should

00:24:07   talk a little bit about styles i went

00:24:09   and saw Road one for the second time did

00:24:11   you

00:24:12   I did where did you see it for the

00:24:13   second time I was with some friends and

00:24:15   they wanted to go on CNN and I wanted to

00:24:18   see a second time so because for people

00:24:20   who don't remember you had seen it twice

00:24:22   when we did our review your christmas

00:24:23   day review and I had seen it once and

00:24:26   we're not going to review again because

00:24:29   we've done arivu and also we're not

00:24:30   gonna do spoilers but i have all my

00:24:32   notes for the scenes from the platform

00:24:34   that light that we were gonna finish up

00:24:35   now you don't want to and today but can

00:24:38   I just say watching a second time and I

00:24:40   hope it came across that i did like the

00:24:42   film because i gave it like a partial

00:24:44   thumbs-up who people remember whereas i

00:24:47   would say you were quite negative about

00:24:49   it

00:24:49   watching a second time my thumb has

00:24:52   moved a little bit

00:24:54   no and it has moved more towards twelve

00:24:57   o'clock the upright position and if we

00:25:00   were doing that episode again kid I

00:25:02   would call you out on more things that

00:25:04   you said and I think you were overly

00:25:07   harsh I still agree with a lot of things

00:25:09   he said but I think you were overly

00:25:11   harsh and that film was even better than

00:25:14   I said it was the first time around

00:25:16   still not like you know an old-time

00:25:17   amazing film but for people who said we

00:25:21   gave a bit of a hard time I kind of a

00:25:24   great i think we could have been a bit

00:25:26   more positive about it that was my

00:25:28   second viewing opinion when we walked

00:25:30   out

00:25:31   okay so on the 180 degree scale that is

00:25:34   your thumbs up and thumbs down what is

00:25:36   the final resting place i would say 1048

00:25:40   which is even more fine-tuned and stars

00:25:43   like it's like pointlessly precise got

00:25:48   four significant digits here to do like

00:25:51   Star Wars 1040a and 38 seconds

00:25:56   oh thank you that's crazy-making so

00:25:59   anyway I just wanted to put that out

00:26:00   there

00:26:00   I think that's very interesting very

00:26:02   interesting you liked more the second

00:26:03   time around the first time yet and

00:26:05   things that you criticized for I think

00:26:08   if it didn't do you would have

00:26:10   criticized it for like it could

00:26:12   win on some things like things that you

00:26:15   said where things were getting too

00:26:16   complex and it was unnecessary detail if

00:26:18   that stuff had been left out would have

00:26:20   been plot house i'll give one example if

00:26:23   you want when they go to desert planet

00:26:26   and they've got to go and find a shake

00:26:29   of error he says I know a guy who can

00:26:32   tell me where he is blue and you thought

00:26:35   our God you know a guy who knows a guy

00:26:37   dove you know we don't need to know a

00:26:38   guy to know a guy but if he hadn't and

00:26:40   they just landed on the planet and going

00:26:42   to shake the various house we would have

00:26:44   all been saying oh sure you're very this

00:26:46   big hidden guy but anyone can just turn

00:26:48   up on the planet and walk straight to

00:26:49   his front door that's ridiculous that's

00:26:51   completely implausible so like little

00:26:53   things like that that seem like

00:26:55   unnecessary complications i think you

00:26:57   have got to drop a little bit of Indian

00:26:59   otherwise we'd be complaining the other

00:27:01   way and I had a lot of attention to that

00:27:03   stuff and I didn't think it made things

00:27:05   overly complicated because i want to

00:27:07   just totally agree with you that the

00:27:10   movie was in a no-win situation with

00:27:12   that kind of stuff and yeah that if they

00:27:14   hadn't added in a bunch of those details

00:27:15   they would be potholes

00:27:16   I think it's the same thing like with

00:27:18   putting the labels for the places that

00:27:20   they're going to in the movie

00:27:22   yeah I as we discuss the time I think

00:27:24   they had to leaving those out would have

00:27:27   made things more complicated but i think

00:27:29   my problem is a bit more fundamental

00:27:30   that it's like the structure of the

00:27:32   movie has put you in this no-win

00:27:34   situation that's more how I feel about

00:27:37   it is like the whole thing was slightly

00:27:38   disorganized and kind of a mess but i'm

00:27:41   very interested to hear that you liked

00:27:42   it more the second time and I feel happy

00:27:45   for you that you liked more the second

00:27:47   time and I liked the first time as I

00:27:48   said I thought it was a good film even

00:27:51   not as good as some others and many

00:27:53   criticisms that were made by both uni I

00:27:56   standby but some of them i think i gave

00:27:59   you be over an easy ride on me because

00:28:00   I've seen it once and there's no point

00:28:02   bickering over everything but I do feel

00:28:04   like if we did that review again I'd

00:28:06   probably going to be harder against

00:28:08   interesting anyway we've done overview

00:28:10   you know we've played their game we know

00:28:13   those who can't replay the superbowl so

00:28:15   the review stance but you want to talk

00:28:18   about styles you've been mulling over

00:28:20   style as well you've been in the

00:28:21   mountains meditating the meaning of life

00:28:24   well this is an interesting thing

00:28:26   these two interesting things that i have

00:28:28   noticed one of which is the name for the

00:28:32   new Star Wars movie has been recently

00:28:35   announced yes what is the name braiding

00:28:37   it is the last Jedi what do you think of

00:28:39   that name disappointing is my first

00:28:42   impression like it's the first time I've

00:28:44   been asked to comment on and because i

00:28:46   don't have many Star Wars fans around me

00:28:48   in my day-to-day movements

00:28:49   it sounds like it should be the end of a

00:28:52   trilogy hmm it doesn't sound like the

00:28:54   middle it's okay it's not as bad as some

00:28:59   others maybe it's not even disappointing

00:29:01   it just is what it is

00:29:02   it just sounds a bit final mhm and it

00:29:04   seems weird to be using a name of such

00:29:06   finality on this series of films that

00:29:08   blatantly is now going to become endless

00:29:10   for the rest of our lives until we die

00:29:12   and beyond

00:29:13   I think and beyond there is quite fair

00:29:17   ok i am willing to bet that Disney will

00:29:20   be making Star Wars movies long after

00:29:23   you and I are dead just like to support

00:29:25   you in any way that things are going to

00:29:26   happen in star wars that you never know

00:29:28   about well this is the reason I brought

00:29:29   up as I saw some headlines about all the

00:29:31   title for the next star wars movie has

00:29:33   been released and the thing that I

00:29:35   noticed was not any particular thoughts

00:29:37   about the title but i noticed my own

00:29:40   internal emotional barometer towards

00:29:43   this news and I suddenly had a feeling

00:29:46   of kind of like dread at the rest of my

00:29:50   life they're always being news about the

00:29:52   next star wars that this is just going

00:29:54   to go on forever

00:29:55   yeah and the feeling that I had was it's

00:29:58   a bit like election cycles in the US

00:30:00   where it feels like you get like this

00:30:02   very brief break and then it's like

00:30:04   we've got a hundred days and we're gonna

00:30:06   start talking about the midterm

00:30:07   elections right and you know you have a

00:30:09   little bit of time never gonna start

00:30:11   talking about the next general and I

00:30:13   thought oh no is between christmas and

00:30:16   mid-january the only time for the rest

00:30:19   of our lives will be free of Star Wars

00:30:20   news i think that might be the case but

00:30:23   it's always going to be like mid to late

00:30:25   January we're going to start hyping up

00:30:26   the next movie

00:30:27   try being a football fan in England man

00:30:29   the offseason last 20 minutes

00:30:31   oh yeah I play the last game of the

00:30:34   season and you're like wow well that was

00:30:36   a rollercoaster ride and then the new

00:30:38   season like

00:30:39   seems to be starting minutes like it's

00:30:42   like crazy I guess this happens with

00:30:44   everything it's just like the rumors

00:30:46   about the next iphone start before the

00:30:49   current one is even out you know that

00:30:50   everything has these same cycles yeah

00:30:53   but I just had this feeling of suddenly

00:30:55   realizing this is going to occur forever

00:30:57   with Star Wars so what do you think if

00:30:58   the touch of the last Jedi then

00:31:00   aside from that feeling you had yeah i

00:31:03   just thought it was kind of a strange

00:31:05   title i agree with you with something

00:31:07   about it feels a little bit off but I

00:31:10   also recognize that I am much less

00:31:12   emotionally invested in the future of

00:31:15   Star Wars and I feel relieved at that

00:31:18   yeah

00:31:18   the other thing that I've just been

00:31:21   thinking about which I have found

00:31:23   interesting is when I guess two years

00:31:26   ago now you and I did the first Star

00:31:30   Wars Christmas special where we talked

00:31:31   about the force awakens and we both

00:31:33   liked it very much

00:31:34   mhm i have been really aware that i

00:31:38   liked that movie I saw a bunch of times

00:31:39   in the theater and then later in the

00:31:42   year i saw it was available for pre-sale

00:31:44   and itunes I was like boom sold

00:31:46   immediately like I never buy presale

00:31:47   stuff I always hate that but I'm not

00:31:49   buying it immediately right so I'll be

00:31:51   able to watch it it's interesting i have

00:31:53   no desire to watch again

00:31:54   yeah ok but so this is what happened

00:31:56   right it's like i pre-ordered it and I

00:31:58   have never touched it and I only just

00:32:01   realized this recently that it is never

00:32:04   crossed my mind to even watch that film

00:32:08   another time i feel like i have no draw

00:32:10   to watch that movie again like I'm very

00:32:13   interested to hear you say the same

00:32:15   thing why do you think that is because

00:32:17   you didn't imprint with like you

00:32:19   imprinted with the Star Wars films as a

00:32:21   kid

00:32:22   mnu imprint with fewer films and out hmm

00:32:25   so you liked it but you haven't liked

00:32:27   bonded with a attending level I think

00:32:30   this is again like the age-old question

00:32:31   of our star wars movies great movies or

00:32:34   did we imprint upon them as children

00:32:36   they're both it is a bit of both but

00:32:39   I've just been really aware of that

00:32:40   sensation and I feel no no need to

00:32:43   rewatch the force awakens and also being

00:32:49   much more aware in retrospect

00:32:52   that the force awakens is this

00:32:54   phenomenon in Hollywood movie making

00:32:57   called the soft reboot

00:32:58   hmm i feel like i wasn't aware of this

00:33:01   so much when watching the movie and i

00:33:03   think i would be more painfully aware of

00:33:05   of it on a rewatch that there are a

00:33:08   whole bunch of movies that are not just

00:33:11   being remade by Hollywood but are being

00:33:15   done as these like kind of Kwazii

00:33:19   sequels but that also start the whole

00:33:22   story over again I can't totally agree

00:33:25   with that about force awakens yeah I

00:33:27   don't think it's a perfect soft reboot

00:33:28   it feels like a soft soft reboot know

00:33:32   it's like a shot in the arm for a glass

00:33:35   of water in the face to the series like

00:33:36   wake up wake up we've got to get our act

00:33:38   together

00:33:39   what are you doing or it's like a big

00:33:41   halftime talk about the coach saying

00:33:43   you've just played terribly come on

00:33:45   let's get out there and have a great

00:33:46   second half but it's not a reboot

00:33:49   because like the story is a continuation

00:33:51   and like they're constantly referring to

00:33:53   what happened before and it's got the

00:33:55   same people in a same characters are in

00:33:57   a you know Skywalker still and everyone

00:34:00   knows what he did before the legend of

00:34:01   him

00:34:02   I know what you're saying you're not

00:34:04   being crazy but if you're going to call

00:34:06   that a rainbow it's the softest of

00:34:08   softest versions of it i think it is

00:34:10   it's very soft soft reboot out because

00:34:13   even though there are new characters

00:34:15   they're all explained in New and Luke is

00:34:20   just in the ob one role where all of the

00:34:22   characters are the same thing again we

00:34:25   have new Vader there's new young Luke we

00:34:28   have new Han Solo it does feel very much

00:34:31   like a soft reboot

00:34:34   I just wonder if that will also not age

00:34:36   the movie well going forward in the

00:34:38   future but it's just a thing that I'm

00:34:40   aware of and i found interesting that I

00:34:42   was wrong that future me would really be

00:34:45   interested in watching this movie again

00:34:46   and it turns out that is not the case

00:34:48   yeah I could've told you that I could

00:34:50   have saved a few bucks there

00:34:51   well when i go to pre-order road 1 i'll

00:34:55   ask

00:34:58   if you put Road one and force awakens in

00:35:00   front of me right now and said you have

00:35:02   to watch one of those 2i choose red one

00:35:04   at the moment that's astounding to me I

00:35:05   can't believe that and I've seen that

00:35:07   more recently I've seen it twice since i

00:35:09   saw force awakens road one was more

00:35:12   grown-up road when was an adults movie

00:35:15   and I'm a grown-up now

00:35:18   oh I just don't think force awakens is

00:35:20   probably better you know I think if you

00:35:23   were like weighing and measuring

00:35:24   everything and you had to do a big

00:35:26   analysis I would still say force awakens

00:35:28   is better than rogue one or rogue one

00:35:31   felt more like my movie at my time of

00:35:33   life and my interests and it's got a lot

00:35:35   more weaknesses than force awakens but

00:35:38   it just felt like it was talking on my

00:35:40   level who a bit more hard as nails

00:35:42   moving for a hard-as-nails man maybe

00:35:44   that's it

00:35:45   maybe that's it i don't know maybe five

00:35:48   years when we can really put them

00:35:49   side-by-side and by then there will be

00:35:51   another five-star was maybe it's what we

00:35:56   have here a breeze papercut you asked

00:35:58   for it

00:35:58   did I had it for it I'm not sure I quite

00:36:01   as for it i have many paper cuts you

00:36:04   know I always have many paper cuts and i

00:36:06   have one it doesn't make me angry so I

00:36:10   don't want the people who i'm about to

00:36:11   criticize to feel like I'm angry at them

00:36:14   but it does kind of get my goat little

00:36:17   bit em so I did something a couple of

00:36:20   weeks ago been playing around with my

00:36:21   email list and one of the things i have

00:36:25   decided to do is occasionally send like

00:36:28   treats to people on my email list to

00:36:29   like thank them for putting up with my

00:36:31   emails

00:36:32   haha you're sending them emails banking

00:36:34   them to for putting up with your email

00:36:36   ok got it right well now wasn't close it

00:36:39   was a bit more subtle than that but

00:36:40   feels like why I'm not subscribe to your

00:36:42   email list

00:36:43   yeah thank you go sign up to Brady's

00:36:46   email list everybody

00:36:47   yeah right yeah you've sold so well now

00:36:49   so what I did was and I didn't just send

00:36:52   an email just for this purpose it was

00:36:53   just a PS on the end of a normal email

00:36:55   little i said if you send me your

00:36:58   address i put everyone who sends me

00:37:00   their address in like a lottery and a

00:37:03   hundred of them i sent postcards that

00:37:04   personal postcards and our signs and I

00:37:06   got nice stamps made for them it was all

00:37:07   a bit of fun was like like

00:37:09   look like a reward but randomly chosen

00:37:11   who nice thing to do and I get all these

00:37:14   addresses and then I used a random

00:37:17   number generator to choose a hundred of

00:37:19   them and these are the addresses for

00:37:21   people who i was writing postcards to

00:37:23   Lou and because people were sending

00:37:26   their address to me an email and not

00:37:27   using some kind of form or proform or

00:37:29   commerce site they just had to write

00:37:31   their address and how they choose to

00:37:33   write a fair enough

00:37:34   and this is when I realized something

00:37:35   everybody in the world when they're

00:37:38   writing their address to may imagine

00:37:41   most of them now and probably in england

00:37:43   right there address and include their

00:37:45   country except Americans I reckon by

00:37:52   ratio of 602 three Americans right there

00:37:59   address and never put united states USA

00:38:01   at the end of it I think they just

00:38:03   assume it's a given that you're from

00:38:05   America so when I was like pasting and

00:38:07   making all these forms to send because

00:38:09   it was mostly American so I was sending

00:38:10   these things to always had to write

00:38:12   united states USA and that sort of thing

00:38:14   because Americans never write their

00:38:16   country everyone else does no matter

00:38:18   where you from our Sweden Italy all over

00:38:21   the world Israel Australia even most of

00:38:23   the UK people did and they know that i'm

00:38:25   in the UK Americans never write their

00:38:28   country and their address and i think

00:38:31   it's like you know tonight maybe it's a

00:38:33   little bit arrogant to do i say i think

00:38:35   the two-letter state abbreviation is all

00:38:38   you need

00:38:39   yeah obviously that's what they think

00:38:41   yeah you see mo and address and

00:38:44   obviously you know where that is

00:38:46   yeah you know where that's going America

00:38:48   that's where it's going

00:38:49   America and tell me where I you should

00:38:52   know where i am and i began to frustrate

00:38:55   me BR another American not putting their

00:38:58   country on their address surprise price

00:39:00   so many of these amero centric

00:39:03   complaints there obviously just a side

00:39:06   effect of for most Americans for

00:39:09   ninety-nine percent of everything they

00:39:11   ever do

00:39:11   it's all economically within the borders

00:39:14   of the united states like how many times

00:39:16   is an American ever have to send a

00:39:17   letter anywhere else in the world

00:39:19   almost never mm like unless you're

00:39:21   sending it to Santa Claus you know you

00:39:23   don't have to

00:39:23   send it out of the country and even then

00:39:25   you know some Alaskans will try to tell

00:39:27   you that you know you should be setting

00:39:28   up to Alaska

00:39:29   what do you mean the North poznan

00:39:31   America I can't remember off the top of

00:39:33   my head like the reasoning for why

00:39:34   centers in Alaska it seems a bit dubious

00:39:36   right but there's some reason why I mean

00:39:39   you know I understand that that's a

00:39:40   papercut of yours but i think this is

00:39:41   what's going to happen when you have

00:39:43   some gigantic economic bloc that

00:39:46   supplies for itself all of the needs

00:39:49   that had these people like a hello

00:39:51   Internet listeners most of them i don't

00:39:53   know maybe they're not maybe lots of

00:39:55   them were subscribe for videos and don't

00:39:58   know that I'm British

00:40:00   well Australian in Britain they're all

00:40:02   objectivity fan I don't know what's

00:40:03   going on everything it should matter

00:40:05   I think you should just put your country

00:40:07   they're like unless you know for a fact

00:40:09   that the persons in the same country as

00:40:11   you the thing is i am thinking back to

00:40:14   when I was a little boy in school and

00:40:17   i'm pretty sure it never even came up

00:40:19   about how to address international

00:40:21   letters like I remember doing the how do

00:40:23   you write a letter to somebody in

00:40:26   Arkansas lesson but the there was never

00:40:29   any reason to put United States on the

00:40:30   bottom i'm pretty sure I never came

00:40:33   across the notion of putting the country

00:40:35   name underneath until I was in the UK

00:40:38   but we live in the world of a bay now

00:40:40   and we're pretty globalized out well

00:40:42   obviously we're not obviously we're not

00:40:44   that globalize because people don't do

00:40:45   it I'm a little surprised but not that

00:40:48   surprised

00:40:49   mm you should know where America is a

00:40:51   couple of times i was thinking where is

00:40:53   this slide is this in America it must be

00:40:55   because it wasn't that would have

00:40:56   written the country with the side of the

00:40:58   United States so great

00:41:02   there's a quiz show in the UK which i'm

00:41:04   sure you've never watched called

00:41:06   mastermind you have you heard of this

00:41:09   I don't think zone where I think they're

00:41:11   usually four contestants students and

00:41:13   they each take a turn sitting in like

00:41:15   the hots eight and under the spotlight

00:41:17   and there are two rounds

00:41:19   they're asked a series of questions on a

00:41:21   specialist subject of their choosing

00:41:24   oh and then they're asked a bunch of

00:41:25   questions or general knowledge and you

00:41:27   two scores are added together and

00:41:29   whoever does the best wins and you'll

00:41:32   see someone ok here's John Smith from

00:41:34   somerset and his specialist

00:41:36   subject is fighter planes of world war

00:41:39   two and the quiz makers will have come

00:41:41   up with a whole bunch of questions on

00:41:43   this special subject and usually you

00:41:45   you're just kind of flabbergasted and

00:41:46   you might get one or two if you're lucky

00:41:48   who and it's kind of weird that people

00:41:49   can know so much about a subject and

00:41:52   then that the quizmaster will say after

00:41:53   so tell us why you're into world war two

00:41:55   planes or whatever and I have a little

00:41:56   chat and then I'll come back later and

00:41:58   do their general knowledge section but

00:42:00   it's always a really good fun thing to

00:42:02   think to yourself when you're watching

00:42:04   master mind if I was on mastermind what

00:42:07   would my special subject bay what

00:42:09   something I know a lot about and I'd be

00:42:12   really happy to be quizzed about

00:42:13   in-depth black at a deep level now I

00:42:17   always thought that my special subject

00:42:19   would be the Apollo moon landing

00:42:21   missions

00:42:22   oh yes of course and anyway

00:42:25   amazingly a couple of years ago I was

00:42:27   watching mastermind and some guy came on

00:42:29   and he chose that sa special subject so

00:42:33   this was like my moment to put myself to

00:42:35   the test it was no longer hypothetical

00:42:37   for me I could do it and see how good I

00:42:39   was

00:42:40   and I'm not ashamed to say I did pretty

00:42:45   well I think maybe I got one wrong out

00:42:48   of like about 20-25 questions

00:42:50   oh so I was like yet I know my stuff i

00:42:53   know my stuff I felt pretty good so I

00:42:55   always thought that would be my ultimate

00:42:57   subject I was watching mastermind the

00:42:59   other day and admittedly it was a

00:43:01   celebrity version where the questions

00:43:03   are a little bit easier when they do

00:43:04   celebrity mastermind anyway this cricket

00:43:07   player came on and he chose as his

00:43:09   specialist subject the original three

00:43:12   star wars movies

00:43:14   hm and they asked him all these

00:43:16   questions and i know i think that is my

00:43:20   specialist mastermind subject because

00:43:22   the first four words of the question

00:43:24   would come out and i would give this

00:43:25   really obscure answer and my wife who

00:43:28   was sitting in the room at the time

00:43:28   looked at me half impressed and in or

00:43:31   and half ashamed of what nerd husband

00:43:34   exactly have horrified that you know all

00:43:37   of this stuff

00:43:37   yeah we all know that feeling but I tell

00:43:39   you what so I know if I was a mastermind

00:43:41   they would be my two options because

00:43:42   they seem to be two things I know quite

00:43:44   a lot about not cricket cricket would be

00:43:46   one of my guesses for you

00:43:47   cricket maybe but cricket can be quite

00:43:49   broad

00:43:50   nobody the broader subject are the

00:43:52   easier the questions funnily enough but

00:43:54   how specific could you get could you be

00:43:55   like my specialist subject is jeff john

00:43:58   could you do well I think the more

00:43:59   specialized you get the more they throw

00:44:03   it incredibly hard questions at you

00:44:04   that's my experience of watching

00:44:06   hmm is that the more you zoom down the

00:44:08   more obscure they get on you should be

00:44:10   like my specialist subject is general

00:44:13   knowledge

00:44:13   well yeah but it did get me and I'm

00:44:16   getting to my point here after it's not

00:44:18   just an excuse to tell you how much I

00:44:19   know about moon landings star wars are

00:44:21   we sure they go well we can stop me

00:44:23   everyone but the thing I wanted to know

00:44:25   was if cgpgrey was on mastermind what

00:44:29   would his specialist subject bay if you

00:44:31   had to go on this quiz show and be

00:44:33   quizzed in front of a national audience

00:44:34   in-depth what's the subject you would

00:44:38   choose one that you think when the

00:44:40   researchers pulled their questions

00:44:41   together you'd hold your own I gotta go

00:44:44   with current events and pop-culture I

00:44:46   would be my special subjects that sports

00:44:50   ball between the 1980 and 2000 will

00:44:53   crush that I would absolutely crushed

00:44:54   that besides that have been this is

00:44:56   given

00:44:57   I've got a theory i put 12 that I

00:44:59   thought you'd say okay you guess first

00:45:00   year and we'll talk about that

00:45:02   my guess is that you're gonna choose

00:45:03   lord of the rings that is not an

00:45:09   unreasonable gasps yeah but I think it'd

00:45:11   be pretty terrible at that ok for anyone

00:45:14   who was really pulling out a lord of the

00:45:17   rings quiz I don't go crazy hard but you

00:45:21   have a lot of the ring is an unusually

00:45:22   deep well to pull from wrap that has a

00:45:26   large number of names and i am really

00:45:29   bad with names

00:45:31   yeah yeah especially those names are

00:45:32   also similar to each other

00:45:34   exactly yeah that's not a bad guess from

00:45:36   your perspective but ok here's the thing

00:45:39   i always think that it is important to

00:45:42   understand and know yourself and one of

00:45:47   the lessons that I learned about myself

00:45:49   a long time ago is that i am not a

00:45:54   specialist in anything I kind of want to

00:45:57   be the person who knows a ton about the

00:46:00   Apollo missions

00:46:02   or I want to be the person who has a ton

00:46:04   of Lord of the Rings knowledge but I

00:46:08   have much more like a serial specialists

00:46:12   like I will for a narrow period of time

00:46:15   get incredibly interested in the thing

00:46:17   and read up on everything that I can

00:46:20   possibly read about it and then suddenly

00:46:23   one day I will wake up and I will just

00:46:26   have no more interest in that thing

00:46:28   it's just that phase is over and so

00:46:30   there's a ton of stuff that I have done

00:46:32   this with but i really don't have a

00:46:35   single topic over a long period of time

00:46:38   that i can say oh you know I really love

00:46:41   and know everything about X I kind of

00:46:44   accept that as part of my personality is

00:46:47   part of the reason why I turned down

00:46:49   doing it like a PhD program a long time

00:46:51   ago because the whole idea of having to

00:46:53   focus on one specialist topic for a long

00:46:55   period of time I just came to the

00:46:57   realization and just face it straight on

00:46:58   like I can't be that person there's no

00:47:00   way i can actually do that so I

00:47:03   genuinely don't think I have any

00:47:06   meaningful specialist area that I could

00:47:09   offer up on a game show like that

00:47:11   well gray that's a fascinating insight

00:47:14   into you as a person as always and I

00:47:17   commend you for entering into the spirit

00:47:18   of the question but obviously your

00:47:20   answer is completely unacceptable to me

00:47:22   and I want to choose a subject just for

00:47:24   the sake of it with that huge

00:47:27   qualification attached to it i would

00:47:29   want to go on a TV show be tested on

00:47:31   Apollo or Star Wars the nerves of the

00:47:33   lights and the cameras i'm sure i'd

00:47:35   check and make a complete fool of myself

00:47:36   what if you had to do it like you had to

00:47:39   do it to save your family's life like I

00:47:42   appreciate that theoretical question I

00:47:44   really do

00:47:45   mm I'm trying to be strategic about this

00:47:47   but I I get what you're saying about you

00:47:50   not being someone who you know it's like

00:47:52   I'm not a person who has hobbies i think

00:47:54   i can ever maintain interest like that

00:47:56   for any length of time there are very

00:47:58   very few interests in anything that last

00:48:02   a very long time with me

00:48:05   yeah maybe voting systems but even then

00:48:09   I feel like it'd be trivial to design

00:48:12   specialist questions that i couldn't get

00:48:14   right

00:48:14   something like that i mean the quiz

00:48:16   buses aren't trying to embarrass you but

00:48:19   you're right that might be a hard one

00:48:20   because I probably feel quite limited in

00:48:21   what I can ask it doesn't like this is

00:48:23   why I like I'm trying to be somewhat

00:48:24   strategic about this is not like lord of

00:48:26   the rings where the well is infinite

00:48:27   yeah with voting systems it's a much

00:48:29   more bounded area

00:48:31   yeah and i think i could probably do

00:48:33   okay with something like that

00:48:35   interesting but even that I feel

00:48:36   incredibly tentative with that as you

00:48:39   know an answer so well you name

00:48:41   something so thank you for giving me one

00:48:43   if you gotta let me slide with that one

00:48:44   brain i'll let you slide with that

00:48:45   because you relented

00:48:47   thank you i appreciate about can I just

00:48:50   say one other thing that infuriates me

00:48:51   about that show mastermind the way the

00:48:54   show works is you answer the questions

00:48:56   in the time that i always think it's

00:48:58   unfair because it seems to me like

00:48:59   people get an uneven number of questions

00:49:02   like someone seems to get more questions

00:49:04   in their time slot than someone else but

00:49:06   that makers of the show always say

00:49:08   that's not needed what kind of banana

00:49:09   republic show is that they don't have a

00:49:11   set number of questions and time there

00:49:13   are no but the other thing that drives

00:49:14   me crazy is that the way it works is if

00:49:17   there's a tie the way they break the tie

00:49:19   is the person who passed on the least

00:49:21   questions because if you don't know

00:49:23   announcer you can just say pass and then

00:49:24   at the end they told the answers to all

00:49:26   the ones you got wrong who I don't know

00:49:28   why anyone ever says pass because if you

00:49:31   don't know the answer you should just

00:49:32   have like a thing in the back of your

00:49:33   head that I'm going to say John Smith

00:49:35   blue so at least you'll have no passes

00:49:38   people say in passing that show drives

00:49:41   me crazy because there's no strategic

00:49:43   advantage

00:49:44   I mean if you get one wrong the

00:49:45   quizmaster then tells you the correct

00:49:47   answer so that might take up one or two

00:49:48   seconds of your time but you're not

00:49:50   getting dark point it feels like you

00:49:52   should just burn through as many

00:49:53   questions as possible

00:49:54   yeah that's just me getting something

00:49:56   off my chest drives my wife crazy

00:49:57   because I complained about every time i

00:49:59   watch the show but I complain more about

00:50:01   the uneven number of questions to be

00:50:02   honest but it seems an incredibly unfair

00:50:04   but also seems like the stakes can't

00:50:05   possibly be high here if nobody's

00:50:07   figured out the strategy when they're

00:50:08   like who created the orcs and you go

00:50:10   potato right and it just they are now

00:50:11   sorry he's like keep moving keep moving

00:50:13   right yeah is there no reward on the

00:50:15   show is this just for funsies true that

00:50:18   the reason to big prize it's not high

00:50:20   stakes but anyway I take questions quite

00:50:23   seriously sometimes I don't want to get

00:50:25   too bogged down by all this

00:50:26   you are very serious about the

00:50:27   of games that is true that is true i am

00:50:30   so serious we can essentially never play

00:50:32   games we played games at Christmas way

00:50:34   you know that didn't even count what we

00:50:36   did was not even a game it was a

00:50:38   conversation starter which is the only

00:50:39   reason we were able to play we had a

00:50:41   great not weed is fun we had a very good

00:50:44   night over christmas but it seems like

00:50:46   it's impossible to play settlers of

00:50:47   catan with you you won't deal with it

00:50:49   now probably not say if we were doing it

00:50:54   for like a podcast I would because i

00:50:55   have to pretend pretend to be a normal

00:50:57   person is not totally losing his cool

00:50:59   yeah something else just quickly there

00:51:05   was new information to me and I feel

00:51:07   silly for not knowing this I don't know

00:51:08   if you know this but I'm often surprised

00:51:12   by things in shops that have security

00:51:14   tags on them to stop you shoplifting in

00:51:17   particular underwear like when you shop

00:51:20   for you wouldn't know this because you

00:51:23   know shop for underwear in the shops but

00:51:24   I'm already trying to spin up a

00:51:26   theoretical scenario under which I'm

00:51:27   shopping for clothing in a physical

00:51:29   store expensive like you know like a

00:51:32   thousand-pound leather jacket i can

00:51:34   understand they're putting a security

00:51:35   tag on so you can't just walk out of the

00:51:37   shop but the thing I've always surprise

00:51:39   is there is really really high security

00:51:41   unlike underwear like boxes of Calvin

00:51:43   Klein underwear or whatever like that

00:51:45   you know the trendy brand is they're

00:51:47   always so got security to the hilt like

00:51:49   it's Fort Knox and I've got all these

00:51:50   huge tags on them because they're

00:51:52   obviously a very stolen item who maybe

00:51:55   because people who shoplift want nice

00:51:57   underwear and maybe because they're a

00:51:59   good size to steal at night but it

00:52:01   always baffles me a little bit but I've

00:52:03   learned to accept it over the last 10 to

00:52:05   15 years that it's a thing what I didn't

00:52:07   realize was the other day because I

00:52:09   don't eat steak very much i know

00:52:11   everyone loves steak and thinks it's

00:52:12   like the best thing in the world to a

00:52:13   true but I think it's really overrated

00:52:15   really the other day I decided to buy a

00:52:17   stake in my local supermarket and I

00:52:21   wanted to get a posh one because I'm

00:52:22   plushies cushions so I want to get like

00:52:24   you know that tasty choice special

00:52:26   deluxe version of course it wasn't like

00:52:28   a posh one from a butcher was still like

00:52:30   a prepackaged when it was sealed in

00:52:31   packaging and costs like 10 pounds or

00:52:33   something about that and I had security

00:52:35   tags all over at the checkout they had

00:52:38   to take the security tags off and

00:52:40   deactivated

00:52:40   so that shoplifters couldn't leave with

00:52:42   a case of steak instead of plastic this

00:52:47   was new information to me i said to the

00:52:49   woman is this like new

00:52:51   why is this security on a piece of steak

00:52:53   and she's like or I think they just get

00:52:55   stolen a lot people steal them

00:52:57   we had a whole conversation about I

00:52:58   brought the underwear without food and

00:53:00   she was like saying she thinks take is

00:53:02   an easy thing to resell like you could

00:53:03   go down to the pub and sell out that not

00:53:05   so it's got a good resale value like a

00:53:08   steak grain market out there

00:53:10   yeah I don't understand how this could

00:53:12   possibly be did you know this i mean do

00:53:14   you ever bought steak do you have a shop

00:53:16   for food i should be shot food shop for

00:53:18   food now of course of her i'm not going

00:53:20   to a supermarket and shopping for food

00:53:23   now I haven't done that in years

00:53:24   I can possibly avoid it right every once

00:53:27   in awhile i will get sent on errands

00:53:28   like a semi autonomous drone to just

00:53:30   pick up items that have been

00:53:31   photographed so i can visually identify

00:53:34   them without having to think about it

00:53:36   very much and bring them back

00:53:37   I've never roaming up and down as

00:53:39   supermarkets with the supermarket car

00:53:41   looking at things wondering why the

00:53:43   security tags on the steak

00:53:44   this is not an activity that I would

00:53:46   ever participate if I can possibly avoid

00:53:47   it

00:53:48   yeah i'm gonna have the uber guy bring

00:53:50   me some food or I'm going to have food

00:53:51   delivered to my door I'm not going to go

00:53:53   to the supermarket and deal with

00:53:55   security on the steak sounds like a real

00:53:57   hassle

00:53:58   it's the first time I've ever bought

00:53:59   photos had security on it was new to me

00:54:02   obviously moved up in the world are you

00:54:05   sure that steak was done dollars are you

00:54:07   sure you weren't buying much more

00:54:08   expensive steak

00:54:09   yeah i didnae Donna wasteful braiding

00:54:12   now I gave it to someone else to eat

00:54:14   because I knew I wasn't gonna eat it did

00:54:16   you resell it

00:54:17   it took it down the pub made a tidy

00:54:19   profit is like but here's the thing

00:54:21   Brady I feel like I have to actually ask

00:54:23   if you did resell it because I could

00:54:25   totally see that happening

00:54:26   I can I shelling is really you can come

00:54:28   someone who would want resale stuff i

00:54:30   don't understand why you do anything

00:54:33   sometimes I've gotta draw here full of

00:54:35   every iphone I've never ironed most

00:54:36   people and I sell their iphones when

00:54:38   they get rid of them

00:54:39   I never sell stuff soon be filled with

00:54:40   pixels that you on well now it was a bit

00:54:43   plasticky to be honest I wasn't very

00:54:45   impressed by the feel of it

00:54:46   m.phil shape i was disappointed I was up

00:54:49   for a tow but it felt cheap

00:54:51   starting at brady I'm sorry to hear the

00:54:53   security on your steak but i'm going to

00:54:56   guess that as security technology gets

00:54:58   cheaper going to be security and more

00:55:00   food supermarket seems going to be

00:55:02   security on ten-dollar bananas this

00:55:06   episode of Hello internet has been

00:55:07   brought to you in part by Harry's now

00:55:10   we've been talking about these guys for

00:55:12   a while but today I've got a really

00:55:14   special offer and I'm talking to you as

00:55:16   a regular and happy harry's user it's

00:55:19   not easy saying happy harry's user but i

00:55:21   am one and I've said this before and

00:55:23   outside again how much I love both their

00:55:25   products but also just their general

00:55:27   attitude to design and marketing this is

00:55:30   a business started by two guys called

00:55:32   Jeff and Andy who were somewhat

00:55:34   disillusioned by the shaving industry in

00:55:37   particular some of the pricing practices

00:55:39   now we're not naming names here of

00:55:42   course but I can't think of one company

00:55:44   in particular that I think they would

00:55:46   suggest has been a little bit

00:55:48   well naughty in its treatment of us the

00:55:51   shaving public so Harry's was born in

00:55:53   these guys took it so seriously they

00:55:55   even bought a shaving blade factory in

00:55:58   Germany I believe that serious business

00:56:00   that would be like gray and I buying a

00:56:02   record producing factory when we made

00:56:04   our vinyl edition we didn't do that by

00:56:06   the way but that's kind of the analogy

00:56:08   i'm using here but back to shaving x

00:56:10   being less greedy with profits and by

00:56:13   selling over the Internet

00:56:14   Harry's is getting great blades to

00:56:16   people at about half the price you

00:56:18   usually find in drugstores the way it

00:56:21   works well wet work for me as you get

00:56:22   yourself a starter kit which includes

00:56:24   that brilliant Harry's handle plus your

00:56:27   first bunch of blades and you also get a

00:56:29   shave Joe and a travel blade cover then

00:56:32   as you go through your blade you can get

00:56:34   your replacements online now Harry's is

00:56:36   so confident in the quality of their

00:56:38   blades they want to give you their shave

00:56:41   set for free that's right for free you

00:56:44   just got to cover the shipping when you

00:56:45   sign up plus there's a special offer to

00:56:48   fans of the show if you go to Harry's

00:56:50   dot-com right now and enter the code h I

00:56:58   can use and that's also free i mean

00:57:00   that's a lot of stuff for free it's well

00:57:02   worth checking out at the very least go

00:57:04   to the site because I've got

00:57:05   a really good website and it gives you a

00:57:06   really good feel for what these guys and

00:57:08   what the company's about that address

00:57:10   again

00:57:11   Harry's dot-com and the offer code

00:57:14   eh I and half thanks to them for

00:57:16   supporting the show you know how I said

00:57:19   there were 36 things on my list

00:57:21   don't trust to talk about a lot of them

00:57:24   were about sport

00:57:25   no I had a lot sport on my mind lately

00:57:28   and I'm just got no one to talk sport

00:57:30   with you know what Brady that is correct

00:57:32   you do have no one to talk to for what

00:57:34   it really clear and put that card on the

00:57:36   table right now which is that you really

00:57:39   don't have anyone to dog sport where I'm

00:57:42   calling it now grey it's an officially

00:57:44   official sports bowl corner it's new

00:57:47   it's a new kona I never feel more like

00:57:51   you're tolerant wife then when you're

00:57:53   talking to me about sports

00:57:55   I always feel like i am being the best

00:57:58   of friends that I possibly can be

00:58:00   I don't know if this can be a regular

00:58:02   thing I don't know if I can handle this

00:58:04   do you know the being a nice friend and

00:58:06   tolerance is all undone the minute you

00:58:08   say you're doing it i know but i feel

00:58:10   like i have sunk so many hours in my

00:58:12   life into listening to you talk about

00:58:13   sports

00:58:14   I'll tell you what there are 4 items

00:58:16   here are now let me just deal with two

00:58:19   of them those bottom two can wait for

00:58:20   another day because I bottom two are

00:58:22   going to take me awhile but let me deal

00:58:23   with those two top ones cause they'll be

00:58:25   a bit quicker and they're also a little

00:58:27   bit more up your alley and you don't

00:58:29   actually have to understand either of

00:58:31   these sports to appreciate the point i'm

00:58:33   wanting to race is so bad at estimating

00:58:36   what I'm interested in with this points

00:58:39   no no I don't think you'll be interested

00:58:41   as such but at least you don't have to

00:58:43   talk about like the rules of a game or

00:58:45   how the spores played with the rules of

00:58:47   the game where the most interesting

00:58:48   thing you just literally you're going to

00:58:54   talk about people which I couldn't care

00:58:56   about less but the abstract rules of how

00:58:57   the game works that's the only thing I'm

00:58:59   interested in

00:59:00   I've been listening Moneyball all day

00:59:02   and every time they talk about the

00:59:04   people in the sport of like I who cares

00:59:05   i can't keep track of any of these

00:59:06   people so they get back to the

00:59:08   statistics like now I'm interested

00:59:11   great do you know who and Demaryius now

00:59:14   alright and mary is a Scottish

00:59:18   tennis player and he has recently just

00:59:20   become the number one tennis player in

00:59:22   the world

00:59:23   ok he's one of the last two olympics

00:59:24   he's 12 Wimbledon titles and after many

00:59:27   many many years of a lack of British

00:59:30   success he has finally become a great

00:59:33   British tennis player

00:59:35   ok this is cause much happiness in the

00:59:37   UK it's funny he was always considered

00:59:39   very Scottish until he started winning

00:59:41   lots of stuff and then everyone in

00:59:42   England started referring to him more

00:59:44   often as British mhm the kind of got

00:59:46   adopted as a lot more British once he

00:59:48   was a champion

00:59:49   anyway that's by-the-by very good tennis

00:59:52   player and he's at the height of his

00:59:54   game he's the world number one at the

00:59:55   moment right in the New Year's Honours

00:59:58   List

00:59:59   hey

00:59:59   hey

01:00:00   he was knighted i actually have issues

01:00:02   with people being knighted during their

01:00:04   sports korea i think this should happen

01:00:06   afterwards but because the government

01:00:07   likes to use knighthoods as an excuse to

01:00:09   increase their popularity they have

01:00:13   knighted this guy while he's still

01:00:15   playing Lou alright i have no control

01:00:18   over that I don't I obviously i don't

01:00:20   think they should be doing it now but

01:00:22   I've done the two problems I have with

01:00:24   it is one I think it sounds silly

01:00:27   calling someone so Andy married when his

01:00:29   name is Andrew but he still called sir

01:00:32   Andy Mary Lou and the other thing that

01:00:35   really annoys me is because of weird

01:00:37   protocol or whatever reasons all of the

01:00:40   media outlets in the UK especially the

01:00:43   baby say now feel like they have to call

01:00:46   him so Andy marry at every reference so

01:00:49   you'll be listening to like the sports

01:00:51   update on the radio or the TV to find

01:00:53   out the latest results and they'll be

01:00:54   saying oh and so Andy Mary bait jeff

01:00:57   smith in a game of tennis sir Andy mary

01:00:59   has pulled his hamstring sir Andy Mary

01:01:02   will be playing in the US open tomorrow

01:01:04   and I think it sounds silly when you're

01:01:06   just running through sports results in a

01:01:08   guy who was just called Mary or Andy

01:01:10   marry a week ago is now being called sir

01:01:12   Andy Mary and every reference

01:01:13   I mean isn't that the whole point of the

01:01:17   name is that everybody has to do this

01:01:18   little acknowledgement thing

01:01:20   no I don't think that's the point of it

01:01:21   and a lot of people don't like it he has

01:01:24   said like in a column just you know to

01:01:26   call me Andy he doesn't want to be like

01:01:27   Sandy Mary all the time

01:01:29   mmm i mean i know lots of people who

01:01:31   were knighted who mr. fancy-pants pretty

01:01:35   awful Brady's friends ignited some of my

01:01:37   best friends are nights anyway I mean

01:01:42   like a i'm not quite sure what you're

01:01:44   saying here but if the dude has written

01:01:45   some article saying just call him Andy

01:01:47   then I think that's that supersedes

01:01:50   things like if someone wants to be

01:01:52   called Andy instead of Andrew it's like

01:01:55   you go along with that and if he's been

01:01:56   knighted and he says in when you doing

01:01:58   sports rundowns you don't have to call

01:02:00   me sir

01:02:00   Thank great ok now we're done with this

01:02:02   we don't have to actually call him Sir

01:02:04   I think they should just drop it then if

01:02:06   he's ok with dropping it

01:02:07   yeah what could be the possible

01:02:09   objection well it's pop there's probably

01:02:11   some protocol written in like some beast

01:02:13   I'll guide where anyone who was knighted

01:02:16   has to be referred to as Sarah in the

01:02:18   first reference and they're unwilling to

01:02:20   let it go something my question it

01:02:22   doesn't sound like a problem with Andy

01:02:23   doesn't sound like a problem with the

01:02:25   knighthood system sounds like it's a

01:02:26   problem with the BBC mara I wasn't a

01:02:29   portion blame I was just saying that no

01:02:30   it's me then I think the BBC needs to

01:02:34   change that style guy that we are

01:02:35   referring to a surprising amount of time

01:02:37   it's all right now let me give you my

01:02:40   other conundrum which I want you to

01:02:42   solve for me saying yourself to andy

01:02:44   Mary problem

01:02:45   ok you have a conundrum that you want me

01:02:46   to solve this is the Wayne Rooney

01:02:48   problem you know Wayne Rooney is now I

01:02:51   don't know when Ramires he's a football

01:02:53   he's a soccer player for Manchester

01:02:55   United ok for many many years the record

01:02:58   number of goals scored by a Manchester

01:03:01   United player was by a guy called Bobby

01:03:03   Charlton who you won't have heard of

01:03:05   butts big deal in England is called 249

01:03:08   girls live in manchester united and

01:03:10   Wayne Rooney has been closing in on this

01:03:12   record and what happened was about two

01:03:15   weeks ago he finally scored the goal to

01:03:19   equal the record and we had all the was

01:03:22   loud as a hero is on all over the

01:03:24   newspapers and their specials on TV and

01:03:26   it was isn't it brilliant is equal this

01:03:28   record at last and then I feel like

01:03:31   we're kind of painted into a corner

01:03:32   because is a bigger deal to equal the

01:03:35   record or break the record because two

01:03:37   weeks later he scored another go and he

01:03:40   became the highest score out on his own

01:03:42   on 250 then he was in all the newspapers

01:03:45   and we had all these TV specials and we

01:03:47   had all these tributes again and he was

01:03:48   lauded as it's great here I folk

01:03:50   breaking the record when records were

01:03:53   broken when should we be celebrating

01:03:55   when the record is equaled or when the

01:03:58   record was surpassed well obviously it's

01:04:01   when the record is surpassed equaling

01:04:03   the record who cares because the person

01:04:05   who did it first

01:04:06   that's way more impressive right right

01:04:08   yeah like doing something first and most

01:04:10   very impressive doing the same thing

01:04:13   somebody else did before you the same

01:04:16   amount not impressive at all so it's

01:04:18   obviously after but again I think this

01:04:22   is actually the BBC's problem again

01:04:25   because if they want to just talk about

01:04:26   a thing twice

01:04:27   because they have to fill the airwaves

01:04:29   with stuff to talk about so you how can

01:04:32   we turn one news story into two we can

01:04:34   talk about it twice that's how it made

01:04:36   them look silly and became a little bit

01:04:37   of water on Mars because it was like

01:04:39   didn't we celebrate this two weeks ago

01:04:41   wasn't he the great hero two weeks ago

01:04:43   why is this happening again so my

01:04:45   version of this that come across every

01:04:47   once awhile in the non sports world

01:04:48   which i always find confusing is news

01:04:52   stories that talk about it

01:04:53   the contents of a speech that have not

01:04:56   happened yet

01:04:57   yeah something about those things always

01:04:59   feel like they fell out of a parallel

01:05:01   universe like yeah

01:05:02   in a speech that will happen later today

01:05:05   the Prime Minister will lay out a policy

01:05:08   that has these three points like wait

01:05:11   what always happens with budgets as well

01:05:13   in the budget to be released tomorrow

01:05:14   there will be tax cuts yeah and the

01:05:17   other time always happens on christmas

01:05:18   day when we were told what the queen or

01:05:20   the archbishop is going to say in their

01:05:22   message to the world of peace later

01:05:24   today the Queen would deliver addressing

01:05:26   aging all Britons to hold hands and like

01:05:29   whoa hang on I haven't said it yet

01:05:31   yeah I find that so strange i remember

01:05:33   years ago there was an example of a

01:05:35   newsreader in America literally reading

01:05:37   a speech that the president was going to

01:05:40   give before the speech was given

01:05:41   absolutely

01:05:42   it feels so wrong I feel like if I was

01:05:44   president now I'm not giving you a copy

01:05:46   of my speech out of time you'll hear it

01:05:48   when I give it I'm with you there

01:05:49   I'm with you there I mean I guess the

01:05:50   reason they probably do is because this

01:05:52   is something that everybody really

01:05:53   totally hate that went a little

01:05:54   opportunity to be able to change the

01:05:56   last second which is kind of what I

01:05:57   presume is the reason that they do it

01:05:59   out it's about hitting the peak news

01:06:01   cycles and stuff isn't you think that's

01:06:02   what it and it's about the same thing

01:06:04   that happened with the window you go

01:06:05   it's about having two parts of the

01:06:06   cherry you get a new cycle the day

01:06:08   before and a new cycle when they've got

01:06:10   the footage of you actually saying it

01:06:11   when you get twice the coverage i guess

01:06:13   in my mind I was always thinking of it

01:06:15   like when you put a video up on patron

01:06:17   just for the patron so they could see a

01:06:18   little give you a chance that you really

01:06:20   have something up like it's not really

01:06:23   probably take a temperature

01:06:24   yeah exactly like how should I didn't

01:06:26   realize that mistake with their let me

01:06:27   fix this or like when cgpgrey releases a

01:06:30   script a few days before a video asking

01:06:32   for people to check his grandma the

01:06:33   grammar nazi sneak peek that's exactly

01:06:35   right like oh hey look at all these

01:06:36   words in my video I hope they're all

01:06:38   spelled right

01:06:39   there no that's what I always thought it

01:06:42   was but i think you're right yeah it's

01:06:43   the exact same thing they want to be

01:06:45   talked about twice but going back to

01:06:47   wayne rooney you would have bit of a

01:06:48   conundrum because the day he scores go

01:06:50   249 and he's equal this famous record

01:06:53   you can't say nothing about it because

01:06:55   it's a bit of an elephant in the room

01:06:57   sure you can of course you can see

01:06:58   nothing about it why do you have to say

01:07:00   something about it like a your i just i

01:07:02   live in a world of sports hype wheres

01:07:03   the idea of saying nothing is completely

01:07:05   foreign to me you're quite right that

01:07:06   sorry Wayne Rooney I don't really care

01:07:08   about your score until it's bigger and

01:07:10   the story good

01:07:11   you saw it around for me that's how i'd

01:07:12   rather sports news network

01:07:14   that's all for sports bar corner until

01:07:16   next time we do with a few media subject

01:07:18   sauna gonna look forward to it Brady i

01:07:23   look forward to it

01:07:25   okay Brady many months ago now i think

01:07:30   you got me a little present I take me

01:07:34   present present that i have with me

01:07:37   right now

01:07:38   listeners can hear that there's a fully

01:07:40   work for you hello hear the dead trees

01:07:43   here the dead trays is fully work if I'm

01:07:45   using the actual thing I don't know

01:07:46   whatever i'm flipping the pages of a

01:07:47   book

01:07:48   this is what you got me a book called

01:07:50   some for details from the after lives by

01:07:55   David equal in and I think it's actually

01:07:59   came up when we were doing the vote

01:08:01   counting you mention this book as an

01:08:03   interesting book to read it's made up of

01:08:05   very large number of very short stories

01:08:09   about what might happen to you in the

01:08:11   afterlife like I need two or three pages

01:08:13   h1 yeah they're very very short and you

01:08:17   sold it to me on like oh I might be

01:08:20   interested in this book as a nice little

01:08:21   book that you could put by your bedside

01:08:24   just read a couple of pages and I

01:08:27   accepted graciously and it sat next to

01:08:29   my bed for months

01:08:32   untouched by human hands can I just

01:08:36   clarify before you tell me what you did

01:08:38   next was he

01:08:39   well you still got us so you haven't

01:08:40   burned it's not like a religious book

01:08:42   it's not about what really happens in

01:08:44   the afterlife just in case people think

01:08:46   it's about yeah it's like a fictional

01:08:49   book writer some fun speculations it's

01:08:51   not thought experiments it's just things

01:08:52   to get you think

01:08:53   thing about life more than death

01:08:55   actually but yeah it's not like you know

01:08:57   this is what will happen in heaven or

01:08:59   stuff it's not touch financial people

01:09:01   it's fiction right that's yeah that's

01:09:02   excellent clarification and I was

01:09:04   interested in the book because you gave

01:09:06   me an interesting description of it you

01:09:07   told me something that the basic

01:09:08   premises and so I i accepted the gift

01:09:10   graciously and then I proceeded not to

01:09:12   touch it forever and sort of half forgot

01:09:15   about it even though it was literally

01:09:16   the only thing on the dress that was

01:09:19   mine it was more of a problem

01:09:21   yeah exactly well one of the reasons i

01:09:24   gave it to you besides thinking that you

01:09:26   would like the contents and I wanted to

01:09:28   talk to you about the contents of the

01:09:29   book I mean I know you don't like paper

01:09:31   books and but i actually thought you

01:09:33   would want this book as an object it's

01:09:35   actually quite an attractive book it's

01:09:36   small and thin as sort of black and I

01:09:39   thought if there was ever a book you're

01:09:41   going to like the look of and accept

01:09:43   into your object lighthouse it might be

01:09:46   this book i love that this is something

01:09:49   that crosses your mind you're looking at

01:09:50   work and trying to think

01:09:52   will this be accepted into the great

01:09:54   household it's quite modest you know

01:09:56   it's not gaudy or colorful and not big

01:09:58   and fat it looks cool it looks like

01:10:00   something you would carry around with

01:10:02   you and I mean it looks like a kindle

01:10:03   and actually is not much bigger than a

01:10:06   kindle itself yes that is correct

01:10:08   yeah but so went untouched for a long

01:10:10   time and then finally last night for

01:10:13   some reason I felt motivated to give it

01:10:17   a shot and I've read through perhaps the

01:10:19   first twenty-five percent maybe a third

01:10:22   of this book and I have some pop trading

01:10:25   account white okay first of all we have

01:10:28   to talk about the physical paper nests

01:10:31   of this book

01:10:32   mhm because I've got my copy here too by

01:10:35   the way okay go

01:10:36   there's someplace out there we go very

01:10:38   nice I was trying to think it has been

01:10:42   maybe five years since i have read a

01:10:48   physical book made of paper

01:10:50   hmm it might possibly be longer than

01:10:53   that but I'm pretty confident that it

01:10:54   has been five years and i have to say

01:10:58   when I decided like oh let me pick this

01:10:59   up let me give this a try

01:11:01   I was kinda thinking like this is gonna

01:11:02   be a charming experience to read a book

01:11:05   you know it's like going to ye olde

01:11:06   medieval

01:11:07   town and you're like a lookout charming

01:11:09   this yes but I have to say I find the

01:11:12   experience of reading a paper book after

01:11:15   years of reading digital books extremely

01:11:18   subpar I did not like it at all

01:11:20   I didn't find it charming in the least I

01:11:22   didn't like the physicalness of the book

01:11:24   and i found it super annoying this

01:11:26   little book like we're trying to open up

01:11:28   the pages and if the pages are all bent

01:11:31   and so now like I have to try to break

01:11:34   the spine of this book to make it all

01:11:36   nice and even to look at like I'm

01:11:38   breaking the physical spine of this

01:11:39   thing but even when i do that the pages

01:11:41   are still bent so the words are all

01:11:43   getting wrapped around as dumb as it

01:11:45   sounds like that the lighting is all

01:11:47   uneven on the page

01:11:49   I can't just put it down on the table

01:11:51   and read it i have to have a hand on it

01:11:53   all the time keeping the thing open

01:11:55   I don't like paper books I don't like

01:11:57   them at all i don't think it's charming

01:12:00   I know people always like oh it's nice

01:12:01   to read a paper book if you can but I'm

01:12:03   coming down very hard on digital books

01:12:06   are way better

01:12:07   it's so funny you should say that and I

01:12:09   know this is almost playing too cliche

01:12:11   here but I've actually been really

01:12:13   disappointed lately with the low number

01:12:15   of books have been consuming moon for

01:12:17   the last sort of your talking I mean

01:12:18   I've done a few audio books that I've

01:12:20   enjoyed it but i haven't been using my

01:12:22   kindle and it was beginning to irk me

01:12:24   and we're at the shops a few days ago

01:12:25   and my wife was feeling the same way she

01:12:29   reads a lot more than me but she was

01:12:30   like I'm not some books and we went into

01:12:32   a bookstore and like filled our boots

01:12:35   with paper books because we felt like

01:12:37   that was the thing to do and i bought

01:12:38   three or four books and came out with

01:12:40   them and i've been reading one of them

01:12:42   for the last three or four days and I

01:12:44   feel like I've been reborn and it's like

01:12:46   wonderful and I'm like deliberately

01:12:48   carving out time to read another thing i

01:12:50   know i'm gonna run a bath and read a

01:12:51   book in the bath for the next hour

01:12:52   because I'm enjoy and like I'm obsessed

01:12:54   with the book and i'm reading at every

01:12:56   opportunity and it's the paper that's

01:12:58   really engaged me that's having as

01:13:00   opposing a logical to engage me and I

01:13:02   know it's we have a laugh because we're

01:13:03   different stuff but I've had the exact

01:13:06   opposite experience I've got back into

01:13:07   paper books for the first time in ages

01:13:09   and i'm absolutely loving it

01:13:12   I totally understand that like I

01:13:13   completely understand that feeling i do

01:13:16   keep a book list of the books that i

01:13:18   read and i don't think that audio books

01:13:20   count as reading a book in the same way

01:13:23   and i am really aware of the number of

01:13:25   books that i have sat down and

01:13:26   physically read as opposed to listen to

01:13:29   is smaller than i would like it over the

01:13:31   past years and this is something I've

01:13:33   been working on since the summer to try

01:13:35   to increase the number of books that i

01:13:37   read there's a few things I've been

01:13:38   doing towards that i can say like paper

01:13:41   is not the answer but what I think paper

01:13:45   does do is it it's the isolation of the

01:13:49   thing you have a physical book this is

01:13:51   the only thing in your hand it's not

01:13:54   going to be batchu it's not going to

01:13:56   distract me with something else

01:13:57   it's not even that you're sitting there

01:13:59   and you have the option of doing

01:14:01   something else is that isolation and so

01:14:04   I do think it is quite reasonable to get

01:14:07   paper books if you want to try to read

01:14:09   more books

01:14:11   I'm glad that's working for you but I

01:14:13   have to say I felt totally repulsed by

01:14:16   the physicalness it's a guy that aside

01:14:20   the information did communicate to your

01:14:21   brain

01:14:22   nonetheless sister i was able to read it

01:14:25   that is entirely true but if you thought

01:14:26   of what you've read

01:14:28   ok so you sold me on this book with two

01:14:34   interesting stories that i do want to

01:14:36   talk about but for the most part reading

01:14:39   through this book i feel like i need to

01:14:42   be high while I'm reading this book i

01:14:46   think just sitting down and reading this

01:14:50   book each of these 12 page little

01:14:53   stories I wrote down my summary of the

01:14:56   first seven or so that i read em and

01:15:00   each of them here the summaries it's

01:15:02   whoa dude what if we're like bacteria

01:15:06   living on a giant creature that doesn't

01:15:08   know we exist

01:15:10   whoa dude what if we're just background

01:15:13   characters in somebody else's dream

01:15:16   yeah well dude what if Heaven is really

01:15:20   boring slow dude what if our creators a

01:15:23   really dumb i can you sold me on some

01:15:26   great ideas but man I have never read

01:15:28   anything that I feel like I need to be

01:15:30   high and a sophomore in college

01:15:33   and I will love this book if you're

01:15:35   listening to my voice right now you are

01:15:37   a sophomore in college and you are high

01:15:39   you should get this book like body and

01:15:41   immediately you will love it i mean that

01:15:43   in a genuine way like I think the book

01:15:45   can be fun but most of these little

01:15:47   stories i found uninteresting anything

01:15:51   sounds stupid by the way when you say

01:15:53   word in front of like what was rode one

01:15:55   like won't do what if an asteroid the

01:15:58   death star was stolen by like a girl

01:16:01   who's the daughter of the guy who

01:16:03   designed the Death Star

01:16:05   whoa like I can make anything that

01:16:07   sounds stupid by talking like a stoner

01:16:09   so I had no no yeah I totally understand

01:16:12   right but I am conveying with the world

01:16:15   dude

01:16:16   the tone that it felt like some of these

01:16:18   stories were written they're all

01:16:19   supposed to blow your mind a little bit

01:16:22   because the idea is H story makes you

01:16:24   look at things in a different way and

01:16:25   some of them i can't remember them it's

01:16:27   a long way since i read but most of them

01:16:29   I was like are you want to tell someone

01:16:31   about that idea the book reminds me of

01:16:33   like true when you're younger and you

01:16:35   sit around thinking imagine this is an

01:16:37   idea and you don't have to let me assure

01:16:38   the idea much further and that's what

01:16:40   this book is it's like imagine if the

01:16:42   afterlife was like this but the thing

01:16:45   about them is a lot of them make me look

01:16:47   at my life differently you know it's not

01:16:49   like life-changing or like getting

01:16:51   things done or something like that yeah

01:16:52   yeah I never thought about things that

01:16:54   way and I don't know it didn't change my

01:16:56   life I'd forgotten most of the stories

01:16:58   but reading a couple of them again today

01:17:00   I had the same feeling it excited me and

01:17:03   it's very easy to get through because

01:17:04   it's so sure it's like digestible it's

01:17:06   like intellectual bubblegum I would say

01:17:08   I think they're a little bit too short

01:17:10   yeah because i do think that they can't

01:17:12   quite follow entirely through on some of

01:17:15   their interesting premises and that's

01:17:18   what is it's a book of interesting

01:17:19   premises

01:17:20   yeah that is totally fair that's totally

01:17:22   fair but that's so I'm like a third of

01:17:24   the way through the book

01:17:25   yep it's such a fast read because it

01:17:27   only took me about a half an hour to get

01:17:29   a third of the way through

01:17:31   yeah it's not even like oh this one is

01:17:32   an interesting i don't like it you know

01:17:34   you're not like investing a whole bunch

01:17:35   of time

01:17:36   yeah of the ones i did read i did think

01:17:38   that they were two that were interesting

01:17:41   the first one which i think does

01:17:44   hit that bullet point of making you

01:17:46   think about your own life a little bit

01:17:47   differently

01:17:48   the first one is is actually the very

01:17:49   first one in the book which is called

01:17:51   some is the one that gave the book its

01:17:53   name as well hear ya

01:17:55   and the premise of this one is that in

01:17:58   the afterlife you live your whole life

01:18:00   again but you are living all of the

01:18:03   similar experiences in order so you

01:18:07   spend 18 months waiting in line right

01:18:11   two years staring out of bus window he

01:18:14   spends a third of your life just asleep

01:18:16   all at once all the pain as well all

01:18:18   your pain is concentrating too like

01:18:20   eight or nine hours of just incredible

01:18:22   pain and breaking your arm and all that

01:18:24   stuff but then after that there's no

01:18:25   pain at all like everything is just

01:18:27   concentrated together

01:18:29   yeah but the personal one that I like

01:18:31   the best I think related most hello

01:18:33   Internet is three days calculating

01:18:35   restaurant tips which would be a

01:18:37   particular kind of help i like that as a

01:18:39   premise because you see these lists of

01:18:41   how much time do you spend in your life

01:18:45   doing various activities but i think it

01:18:47   hits home under this framing of what if

01:18:50   you had to live your whole life again

01:18:52   but you're living all of these moments

01:18:54   all these similar moments together that

01:18:57   makes it a much more visceral and

01:18:59   interesting thing to think about what is

01:19:02   your like look like you spent two days

01:19:03   tying your shoelaces three days

01:19:05   calculating restaurant tips that you

01:19:07   said 51 days deciding what to wear

01:19:09   nine days pretending you know what is

01:19:11   being talked about two weeks counting

01:19:13   money things like that

01:19:16   yeah i like that i think it's an

01:19:18   interesting way and like it just makes

01:19:19   you think for a moment a little bit

01:19:20   differently about how you are living

01:19:23   your life it's interesting though

01:19:24   because the end of the story

01:19:26   I think sort of delicate on your page

01:19:28   and a half long but then at the end it's

01:19:31   sort of said something along the lines

01:19:32   of this experience makes you really

01:19:35   appreciate how your lives are broken up

01:19:37   into pieces and shuffled around you

01:19:39   don't have to do all these things

01:19:40   together and the variety and the change

01:19:42   but that's not what I took from the

01:19:43   story I didn't take from the story and

01:19:45   appreciation for that i took from a gosh

01:19:48   you know am i spending that much time

01:19:50   doing things that I shouldn't be doing

01:19:52   if i'm spending eight days staring into

01:19:55   a refrigerator like

01:19:56   I need to spend less time staring into

01:19:57   refrigerators and that's known as a time

01:20:00   but I'd hate to have to spend all the

01:20:03   time I spend faffing around with

01:20:05   designing websites or doing some

01:20:08   animation and that was all concentrated

01:20:10   into like you know two-and-a-half years

01:20:11   of sitting there and animating text on

01:20:14   videos I'd be like you know how can i

01:20:15   really be spending that much of my life

01:20:17   like when I come to the end of my going

01:20:19   to be glad I spent nine years animated

01:20:22   videos and I know it sounds like

01:20:23   throwing your whole life into the

01:20:24   outbreak well that's what this book does

01:20:26   like to them like that and then you read

01:20:28   the next one you forget the one that

01:20:29   came before but like after story i put

01:20:31   the book down and go whoa dude I got

01:20:35   into my wife is something that's like

01:20:37   our man imagine this like and it's like

01:20:40   I'm gonna read another one

01:20:42   I think it's really good i really like

01:20:45   it what's the others was the one you

01:20:46   liked well yeah I mean just to be clear

01:20:48   I'm going to finish the book i'm going

01:20:50   to keep reading through it because it's

01:20:51   so short now and they're also easy like

01:20:55   for me personally the hit rate was quite

01:20:57   low of the ones that i was reading on

01:20:58   which ones do I like in which ones do I

01:21:00   not like I remember what my hit right

01:21:01   was like I thought it was better than

01:21:03   fifty percent for me what you think

01:21:04   making a short huge event yeah it's like

01:21:07   out if there's an interesting idea

01:21:09   there's a thing that I think about for a

01:21:10   while and if it's one that I find an

01:21:12   interesting i can just move right on

01:21:13   past it

01:21:14   yeah but the one that I like the best so

01:21:17   far is one called metamorphosis and I

01:21:20   think this is a really interesting idea

01:21:22   the premise of this afterlife is that

01:21:25   when people die they don't immediately

01:21:27   go to the real afterlife they have to

01:21:30   sit around in a lobby waiting and what

01:21:33   they're waiting for is for the last

01:21:36   person on earth who remembers them to

01:21:40   also died

01:21:41   yeah and when they are no longer

01:21:43   remembered on earth they are allowed to

01:21:45   leave this Lobby and move on to the next

01:21:48   unspecified phase of what the afterlife

01:21:51   is and this is a perfect example like I

01:21:54   find that a really interesting premise

01:21:56   because it brings up this notion of how

01:22:01   interesting it is that some people are

01:22:03   remembered such an incredibly long time

01:22:07   and you can imagine that there are

01:22:10   people who are remembered now who may

01:22:13   well be remembered for as long as the

01:22:16   human species exists in any form and

01:22:20   then on the flip side there are of

01:22:22   course people who are forgotten

01:22:25   essentially as soon as they're dead

01:22:27   right people who are known by almost

01:22:29   nobody in the water yeah and I like this

01:22:31   premise sort of reverses that like that

01:22:34   the humans who are of great a claymore

01:22:36   are noteworthy on earth have to spend

01:22:39   this interminable amount of time in

01:22:41   purgatory begging cryin waitin to never

01:22:44   forgotten

01:22:45   whereas the nobodies get to just pass

01:22:47   right on through the lobby and move on

01:22:49   to the next phase immediately just to

01:22:50   clarify that further though it's not

01:22:52   just like sort of remembered by people

01:22:54   who knew you could just be spoken of in

01:22:56   this short story for example there's

01:22:58   like some nobody out farmer who was

01:23:00   unlucky to drown in a river which then

01:23:03   became like a famous place and like 20

01:23:06   guys go there all the time until the

01:23:07   story of the farmer that drowned in the

01:23:09   river right even though he died hundreds

01:23:11   and hundreds of years ago and he was

01:23:12   quite an obscure farmer he's forever

01:23:14   stuck in his portrayed right because his

01:23:17   stories being told forever and ever and

01:23:19   it's always been changed as well in many

01:23:20   ways the story doesn't represent who is

01:23:23   or what he was but because of it

01:23:25   he's still stuck in this this terrible

01:23:28   place

01:23:28   yeah there's a line thats related to

01:23:30   that which I really quite likes where

01:23:32   it's like and that's the curse of this

01:23:35   Lobby we live in the heads of those who

01:23:37   remember us and we lose control of our

01:23:39   lives and become who they think we are

01:23:42   yeah it's a great little lime even just

01:23:45   in a very small way being a person on

01:23:49   the internet who says things that you

01:23:51   just become so aware of how like the

01:23:55   version of you that is in other people's

01:23:57   heads has almost nothing to do with the

01:24:00   real you

01:24:01   oh yeah it's very funny to see people

01:24:03   like arguing about like what you think

01:24:05   and writing things like I don't agree

01:24:06   with that at all right features laying

01:24:08   it out there like this is a thing that I

01:24:09   agree with I think it's also just an

01:24:11   interesting thing to think about the

01:24:12   people throughout history

01:24:14   obviously they just become

01:24:16   ideas that are totally unrelated to the

01:24:21   actual person yeah when you think about

01:24:23   Abraham Lincoln the idea of what you

01:24:26   think Lincoln is in your head

01:24:28   probably the real Abraham Lincoln would

01:24:29   find almost entirely unrelated to his

01:24:32   experience of his actual life

01:24:34   yeah and the book talks about this

01:24:36   purgatory waiting room place having like

01:24:38   Saints and people in their revered and

01:24:41   the saints are there who actually really

01:24:42   complicated people already complicated

01:24:44   lives and they're just being remembered

01:24:46   in a different way we're making it sound

01:24:48   like an epic story again it was only

01:24:49   like a page it wasn't that

01:24:51   yeah it's literally but the thing that I

01:24:53   found really bittersweet and interesting

01:24:54   about as well was the idea that in many

01:24:57   cases the moment you're summoned away

01:24:59   and taken away is when some family

01:25:02   member dies back on earth and they

01:25:05   arrived in like this waiting room as you

01:25:08   leave so you never get to see them

01:25:09   because that's the tragedy that you

01:25:10   don't get to spend time with them

01:25:11   because the minute they die

01:25:13   that's the last person he remembers you

01:25:15   you're off through the door and they

01:25:17   walk in the other door a few seconds

01:25:19   later and people there observing that

01:25:20   sort of remark on the tragedy of that

01:25:22   are you didn't get to see his grandson

01:25:25   because the grandson was the last person

01:25:26   he remembered him say so of course the

01:25:28   question that this bag Brady how long do

01:25:32   you think we would have to spend in that

01:25:35   lobby

01:25:36   hmm how long do you think the hello

01:25:40   Internet podcast will be remembered in

01:25:43   human history

01:25:44   I mean I don't think very long and the

01:25:47   same with the YouTube videos I mean

01:25:49   there's just so much content in the

01:25:50   world now that I think everything's just

01:25:52   going to get buried the danger is that

01:25:54   some researcher in 300 years is going

01:25:56   through some archive of something and

01:25:59   stumbles over your name which is around

01:26:01   the place if any internetting survives

01:26:03   and they might go

01:26:05   cgpgrey why someone on this website

01:26:07   talking about someone called cgpgrey

01:26:09   almost look who he is and if that's

01:26:11   hundreds of years ahead for some reason

01:26:12   that sticks you in the waiting room for

01:26:14   a pretty unlucky reason say I guess

01:26:18   because we're a bit splattered around

01:26:19   the place online there is a risk that we

01:26:23   could come up in a few hundred years on

01:26:24   some random search but i don't think

01:26:26   we're going to be like particularly

01:26:28   remembered or talked about so it depends

01:26:31   on that that would be a problem

01:26:33   guess we'll find out we're hanging out

01:26:35   in that Lobby yeah yeah just to

01:26:38   emphasize again this book is not

01:26:40   suggesting this is what the afterlife is

01:26:42   like it's just a whole bunch of thoughts

01:26:44   like you know interesting made-up

01:26:45   stories

01:26:46   yeah there's just a bunch of thought

01:26:48   experiment so the conversation starters

01:26:50   and have a look

01:26:51   just two of them and we could we could

01:26:52   talk about this for hours i love it

01:26:55   this is as far as I have gotten but i

01:26:57   just want to thank you on the podcast

01:26:58   for giving me this gifts of a physically

01:27:01   inconvenient book but i will meander my

01:27:04   way through the rest of it eventually

01:27:05   and may perhaps we'll talk about some of

01:27:08   them in the future

01:27:09   alright well we spoiled two of them but

01:27:11   I don't really think this is a spoiler

01:27:12   type book so it doesn't really matter

01:27:14   yeah I would categorize this as not

01:27:16   spoilers and just ideas yeah

01:27:19   the idea is the whole exactly and this

01:27:20   and telling a few of these stories is

01:27:23   actually how you sell the book two

01:27:25   people yeah you told me about the lobby

01:27:27   one and that was like okay I give me a

01:27:29   copy of this and I was just as happy to

01:27:31   read the lobby one when i actually got

01:27:32   to it the premises in the first sentence

01:27:34   of all of them but ya told me to tell

01:27:37   you the one that was so to me by a

01:27:38   friend of both of ours actually called

01:27:39   Jake and he sounded to me with a

01:27:42   different story

01:27:43   he sold it to me with one I don't know

01:27:45   if you've got to this one yet that

01:27:47   basically there are these like

01:27:49   beings i'm going to make up these

01:27:51   numbers because I can read the story so

01:27:52   longer there's like these two thousand

01:27:55   mile tall beings and their job over

01:27:58   thousands and thousands of years which

01:28:00   is incredibly important high-stakes job

01:28:02   is to hold the fabric of the universe

01:28:03   together like this is really

01:28:05   labor-intensive mentally intensive job

01:28:07   keeping the universe help together in

01:28:09   the depths of space or you know some

01:28:10   crap like that but they get a holiday

01:28:13   they get a vacation from every you know

01:28:16   500 years of thousand years and that

01:28:18   holiday is to spend 80 years on earth as

01:28:21   a human

01:28:22   so what we are is just the vacation of

01:28:25   these beings that have this incredible

01:28:26   job and we think like our lives are

01:28:28   really important and we stress about all

01:28:31   these things but for them just coming

01:28:34   and having a little concerns and of our

01:28:36   life and worrying about taxes and their

01:28:38   jobs and going to the beach and having

01:28:40   families is like the ultimate luxury to

01:28:42   them it's like this flippin little fun

01:28:44   holiday they get to go on before they

01:28:46   have to go back to this serious job of

01:28:48   holding the universe together so we're

01:28:50   just we're just vacationing mega aliens

01:28:53   i love it i love her have a bit of a

01:28:56   visceral reaction to that one because i

01:28:59   have known people who believe something

01:29:00   sort of similar to their okay yeah i

01:29:02   mean a silly and silly if you follow

01:29:05   that with logical conclusion

01:29:06   it ends in anger I mean it's written

01:29:09   just fine it's not but but i like the

01:29:11   idea that our lives an important because

01:29:13   we think i'll have to so important

01:29:15   of course our lives are unimportant yeah

01:29:17   your life is important right after I

01:29:18   don't think my life is important

01:31:23   your next move with a beautiful website

01:31:25   from Squarespace so I did something a

01:31:29   bit silly last not what did you do last

01:31:32   night breathing you know what I did

01:31:34   because I told you I was going to do it

01:31:35   because like I felt like it was

01:31:37   something I couldn't do without telling

01:31:38   you I was doing it

01:31:39   you've been very silly lately I've been

01:31:41   silly i invited listen to the podcast

01:31:44   using various outlets such as Twitter

01:31:48   and a patreon and emails and stuff to

01:31:52   write limericks

01:31:54   hello Internet themed limericks and send

01:31:57   them to me for us to me is over and

01:32:00   perhaps even award if they were creative

01:32:02   enough this is such a you project Brady

01:32:04   everything about this is is you I

01:32:07   expected to get fifty or a hundred maybe

01:32:09   if we're lucky we got lots and lots

01:32:13   yeah you don't look at the back end of

01:32:15   the podcast I don't think you realize

01:32:17   how big this podcasters and if you add

01:32:19   for hello Internet limericks you're

01:32:20   gonna get a lot of them we did get a lot

01:32:24   of them i assume everyone knows what

01:32:26   limerick is but that is a false

01:32:29   assumption isn't it because not everyone

01:32:31   knows what limerick is well what do you

01:32:33   think everyone does know what limerick

01:32:34   is I feel on the spot because like a

01:32:37   limerick is a like a rhyming poem

01:32:39   yeah it's a power of a very set style

01:32:41   and i tomatoes a very set way of reading

01:32:43   and when you read about the rules of a

01:32:45   limerick there is a little bit of

01:32:46   latitude and certainly the ones we got

01:32:48   sent used some of that latitude it has

01:32:51   to be five lines and it has this AAA BBB

01:32:54   a rhyming pattern so to give you an

01:32:57   example in my email I sent out to people

01:32:59   inviting them to submit I even read my

01:33:01   own memory i write the invitations a

01:33:03   limerick would you like to hear it

01:33:06   let's hear it really you can't believe

01:33:09   me do this stuff in here with your home

01:33:12   or you're out for a drink

01:33:13   I hope that you can take pause and think

01:33:15   because if you have time you send me

01:33:17   arrive and when vinyl by using this link

01:33:19   suggesting that people might win a vinyl

01:33:24   record for the winner

01:33:27   you like that one I like that you do

01:33:31   this kind of i like that you open

01:33:34   yourself up to sorting through however

01:33:37   many limits you got you said we received

01:33:40   a bunch of limericks but like the vinyl

01:33:42   like with many have other helmet net

01:33:45   projects and I was not really involved

01:33:47   you heard the unspoken hero of this so i

01:33:50   like that you do these things really let

01:33:52   me give you one more limerick example

01:33:53   which is your favorite you know

01:33:54   professor polygraph i mentioned before

01:33:57   he's a chemist I spend lots of time with

01:33:58   so his favorite limerick and a bit like

01:34:01   a dad or grandpa who tells you the same

01:34:03   joke over and over again

01:34:04   I've heard him say this limit committee

01:34:06   many times because his favorite and it's

01:34:08   about the insecticide chemical DDT

01:34:11   because of course that's what can we say

01:34:13   lyrics about right let me see if I can

01:34:15   cycle is not easy

01:34:16   a mosquito was heard to complain that a

01:34:19   chemist had poisoned his brain the cause

01:34:22   of his sorrow was paradichlorobenzene

01:34:25   dad I feel now trichloroethane that that

01:34:30   is a chemistry limerick I think it will

01:34:32   grab that but i think there's a better

01:34:34   day ago so lots and lots of people sent

01:34:37   limericks lots

01:34:39   ok and they were a mixed batch as you

01:34:42   would expect but I would like appreciate

01:34:45   everyone who did it

01:34:46   some people like went all out some

01:34:49   people like sent like 10 some people

01:34:51   sent more than 10 and each limerick

01:34:54   followed on the one before and it was

01:34:55   like a narrative like a whole story told

01:34:58   in memory circulating the Iliad and the

01:34:59   Odyssey yeah some people write limericks

01:35:02   about our regular sponsors which I found

01:35:05   interesting there was one guy called

01:35:07   Chris and I think Chris must have fallen

01:35:10   out of his sake when he saw the alerts

01:35:12   about this because this was his moment

01:35:14   because he emailed me a straight away

01:35:17   and he said hi Brady i started writing

01:35:20   limericks about each episode of the

01:35:22   podcast about a year ago he goes on to

01:35:27   say there i stopped after about 13 of

01:35:30   them when i realized some of them were

01:35:32   crap i hope he means his limericks and

01:35:33   not the podcasts but anyway he's not

01:35:36   entirely clear which were crap but i

01:35:37   think he means his limericks but a

01:35:39   couple of them were good

01:35:40   I'm sorry so he sent all those limericks

01:35:43   so for me there's good news and bad news

01:35:46   about that for Chris the good news is

01:35:48   that he didn't miss the short window of

01:35:50   opportunity to send me the lyrics

01:35:52   because there was only like a 24-hour

01:35:53   opportunity and if he missed this window

01:35:55   he would have been devastated

01:35:57   yeah you were the bad news is i don't

01:35:58   think any of his limericks made my

01:36:00   shortlist sorry Chris but I could be

01:36:03   wrong about that i'm not sure but one of

01:36:05   my favorite experiences of this was when

01:36:07   i showed you the webpage I'd written

01:36:09   that explain the rules and how people

01:36:10   could submit little I said what do you

01:36:13   think about this and your reply was and

01:36:16   our radio verbatim you wrote i can't

01:36:18   think of any problems with that but i'm

01:36:20   sure the internet will find them and i

01:36:22   did find out what the problem was little

01:36:24   because when i wrote like the

01:36:26   description of what I wanted people to

01:36:27   do i gave them like the email address

01:36:29   and i said in and the rules I said put

01:36:32   Limerick in the subject field now right

01:36:35   limerick an uppercase put Limerick in

01:36:37   the subject field

01:36:38   these reasons that reason yeah what do

01:36:40   you think happened I don't know if it

01:36:43   seems so straightforward to me i'm

01:36:44   trying to think how will this get messed

01:36:46   up at least two people i think more

01:36:48   thought that meant they should write the

01:36:51   entire Limerick in the subject field

01:36:53   haha i don't think i will send out

01:36:55   helmerich in the subject of the email

01:36:57   which was quite an interesting

01:37:00   interpretation of the instruction but I

01:37:02   completely understand why they did it

01:37:03   completely understandable totally

01:37:06   understandable they're just following

01:37:07   your instructions exactly so it makes me

01:37:09   realize how hard it is to write

01:37:10   instructions that we went through that

01:37:12   with the voting process are trying to

01:37:14   thinking really hard about this could be

01:37:16   bad

01:37:16   how will people stuff it up so I've come

01:37:20   up with a short list which isn't

01:37:22   particularly sure

01:37:23   uh-huh of the ones that I think you're

01:37:25   probably the best I've seen so far I

01:37:27   thought maybe we should share some of

01:37:29   them right so we're gonna go read

01:37:31   through some limericks now

01:37:32   yeah what's your limit grading scales

01:37:33   like well I didn't really realize what a

01:37:36   limerick was until we're just recording

01:37:37   right now I didn't realize there was a

01:37:39   specific rhyming pattern that we had to

01:37:40   do was to data editor editor editor

01:37:45   editor

01:37:47   ok i will try to remember that and we

01:37:50   will see how this goes and apologize to

01:37:52   people for us reading them not the way

01:37:54   you intended but that's just part of

01:37:56   poetry isn't it and it sounds like it

01:37:58   could be a disaster of greater than our

01:38:00   limit goes but you say I'm sure you can

01:38:02   pull this off now I can pull this off

01:38:04   well go first I'll read one first

01:38:06   already there once was a cave man named

01:38:10   brady who said Maryland's flag drives me

01:38:13   crazy i think it's ok said the robot

01:38:16   called gray it's so bad that it might

01:38:18   just amaze me i like it that's cute

01:38:22   that's nice isn't it

01:38:23   Marilyn flag yeah i'll send you your

01:38:25   once so hang on let me send you the

01:38:27   first one feature aid and there are you

01:38:29   again okay

01:38:30   there once was a doctor called Brady

01:38:33   this one was a man not a lady

01:38:36   he may be the cleverest to have visited

01:38:38   Everest though great finds that claim

01:38:41   rather shady red I like that one

01:38:46   I believe I just claim that you visited

01:38:48   Everest is very podcast I don't find

01:38:51   that claim shady

01:38:52   doll no but it's shady that I'm the

01:38:54   cleverest to visit Everest 00 Catholic I

01:38:57   think that's what they may not know who

01:38:59   knows

01:38:59   okay here we go hello Internet held an

01:39:04   election for a flag where the author

01:39:07   affection we chose milan gear the loyal

01:39:10   teams cheer flag flag rebels cry

01:39:12   insurrection I think the problem is

01:39:15   limericks their brain is expecting

01:39:18   something naughty when you say and I

01:39:20   would traditionally limerick Sarah bit

01:39:22   naughty and most of these are naughty i

01:39:24   did say on the grounds that a little bit

01:39:25   of naughtiness was allowed but we have

01:39:27   got a couple of naughty ones coming

01:39:29   ok but yeah you're right a bit of

01:39:32   naughtiness is good so I cannot tell you

01:39:34   how many liberals I've read today grades

01:39:36   ridiculous i think it's gonna explode as

01:39:38   kids that nothing happened Olympics you

01:39:40   read either but I feel like this is a

01:39:42   crazy-making thing to do

01:39:44   alright well doesn't this next one for

01:39:46   you ok on a quest very great pseudonym

01:39:50   dr. heron went out on the limb made of

01:39:53   metal and wheels his friend also feels

01:39:56   the best listeners should all be called

01:39:58   him

01:39:59   it's nice it's now a pseudonym and limb

01:40:03   don't rhyme i can't i can't accept that

01:40:05   now that one ! that works for me i was

01:40:08   pretty harsh on one where I thought the

01:40:09   writing wasn't up to scratch but I

01:40:10   thought that was our pseudonym does not

01:40:12   rhyme with limb I'm disagree disagree

01:40:15   alright well what you think of this

01:40:17   there once was a robot code gray and you

01:40:20   might find it out when i say though he

01:40:22   loved automation flags and education he

01:40:25   always led Brady astray

01:40:27   I never leave this movie no no that's

01:40:31   slanderous that Limerick is slanderous i

01:40:35   have never led you astray Brady era

01:40:37   never not once not ever

01:40:39   here's another one for you then I don't

01:40:42   know how you'd be doing this all day

01:40:43   because i have read to limericks and I

01:40:44   feel like I'm already losing my mind

01:40:49   ok my day had been fairly mundane when H

01:40:53   i started up in my brain so I jumped to

01:40:56   my feet thought I must send a tweet at

01:40:58   Brady Haran i'm not on a plane

01:41:01   oh my god i love that that is amazing

01:41:04   and I was like yeah I that is absolutely

01:41:06   fantastic

01:41:07   yeah whatever here we go they may both

01:41:11   have a passion for flagging and some

01:41:14   freebooting had their hearts egging but

01:41:17   when they asked around they surprisingly

01:41:19   found that their best known for the term

01:41:21   humble bragging it's not bad not bad

01:41:26   little bit of a vigorous for our

01:41:28   problems with humble bragging don't mind

01:41:31   being a dick

01:41:32   here's one that my PTA okay Brady was

01:41:35   brushing his teeth with a tooth brush

01:41:37   with bristles of heath a crack

01:41:40   interrupted and splinters erupted and

01:41:43   his mouth did resemble a wreath i can

01:41:49   give that one a vote to that having good

01:41:51   i'm sorry I've been such a grump

01:41:55   to be honest I feel like a chump but i

01:41:57   hope you can see that it's not you it's

01:42:00   me i'm in love with the mighty black

01:42:02   stump the black stump was used in a lot

01:42:07   of limericks people who got really into

01:42:10   the black stump stump rhyme with very

01:42:12   many things

01:42:13   hmm you'd be surprised and you'd be

01:42:16   surprised how many people notice the

01:42:18   fact that Brady rhymes with both shady

01:42:20   and lady the lady one feels like a give

01:42:23   me right

01:42:24   radiantly yeah like that had to have

01:42:25   been a prominent feature yet there's

01:42:28   another 15 okay Brady takes this

01:42:31   ridiculous show two places it never

01:42:33   should go from smartphones to race rats

01:42:36   and cricketers nice bats gray is always

01:42:39   the last one to know

01:42:40   I feel like the Limerick speaks to me

01:42:43   Brady does that's why it's on the one

01:42:45   just for you to rate whoever wrote that

01:42:47   I genuinely feel like that Limerick

01:42:49   speaks to me

01:42:52   this one's because I an element of truth

01:42:55   to as well you ready

01:42:56   mmm i have a message for gray I want him

01:43:00   to see what I say but I know he won't

01:43:02   read it will simply delete it but Brady

01:43:04   might send his way

01:43:06   perfect perfect

01:43:12   all right here we got this one's VA

01:43:15   Brady's biggest fan is a duck who finds

01:43:18   himself being out of luck

01:43:20   you're reading this gray as Brady can't

01:43:22   say the Limerick ending with fuck is

01:43:27   fitted norte I like it I like it

01:43:31   you might like this one to them okay

01:43:34   great we hope you will never be parted

01:43:36   from your co-host and imp but

01:43:39   kind-hearted and we know you don't like

01:43:42   Brady touching his mark but at least he

01:43:44   has never yet fired could go along with

01:43:47   your strict policy of not looking

01:43:48   yourself on the broadcast is another

01:43:52   topic that came up quite a lot hot

01:43:54   stoppers are fun don't you see they're

01:43:56   more than just plastic to me a man

01:43:59   quickly learns from his third degree

01:44:00   burns

01:44:01   it's no fun to wait an A&E and good good

01:44:07   going to like it like that one right

01:44:09   here we go free booted contents for

01:44:12   jerks it sucks to steal people's hard

01:44:15   work

01:44:16   it bums you too busy Tuesday like Brady

01:44:18   and gray and Henry and Michael and Dirk

01:44:21   okay i gotta give bonus points for

01:44:27   cleverness for rhyming Dirk yeah it's

01:44:29   very good

01:44:30   all right here we go

01:44:34   it met this one with all these limericks

01:44:37   i feel like if i can get past the first

01:44:38   two lines it's fine it's hard to read

01:44:41   them as an attachment limericks it is

01:44:43   surprisingly hard to reviews this is

01:44:45   really interesting

01:44:47   ok there once was an Adelaide man who

01:44:50   came up with the naughtiest plan through

01:44:52   the protests of grey limericks hooray

01:44:55   and hand with this concept here and

01:44:57   another one that does feel like my

01:45:03   experience because you messaged me about

01:45:07   this stuff you mentioned this to me

01:45:08   ahead of time and but let's just say i

01:45:10   am very slow at ever responding to

01:45:13   messages of any kind from everyone

01:45:15   yes I always feel like by the time I

01:45:18   even respond to your messages about live

01:45:20   thanks you've already gotten a page

01:45:21   written like you're already moving

01:45:22   forward with his plan so I do definitely

01:45:25   feel like you're always half running

01:45:27   with these things before i even wake up

01:45:30   and see that there's a message and go

01:45:32   braves got an idea let me rip it up with

01:45:34   my thoughts on this like nope it's

01:45:35   already done

01:45:36   action now permission later exactly yeah

01:45:39   but that's what you do for forgiveness

01:45:42   there once was a fellow named Tim who

01:45:45   downloaded hii on a whim as he sat on

01:45:48   his flight he received quite a fright

01:45:51   plane crash quarter was mentioning him

01:45:54   that's right all right here we go

01:45:59   haven't I could get this one wrong this

01:46:00   is gonna take some concentration

01:46:02   ok this is a bit concept art so but

01:46:05   we're gonna have we're gonna have a few

01:46:06   different ones in there 0 100 100 0 100

01:46:12   100 one but great what does that mean

01:46:16   my mind is not a machine 00 1 111111

01:46:20   little too matter for me

01:46:22   yeah it's a little too clever for its

01:46:24   own good that was it has meaning it

01:46:26   would have been better if the numbers

01:46:28   rhymed but i like that they were trying

01:46:29   to be different people can read that one

01:46:31   later and figure out what the things

01:46:32   made because the numbers to actually

01:46:34   mean something

01:46:34   oh I would be disappointed if they

01:46:36   didn't this is a nice one for you

01:46:38   hey gay sadly I'm filled with regret

01:46:40   that my needs just haven't been met am a

01:46:43   tactical shopper who wants a

01:46:45   heart-stopper so now I get coffee from

01:46:47   pretz I feel like that one has a really

01:46:50   nice flow that's that's very nice

01:46:52   yeah very smooth very smooth over an

01:46:55   endless horizon a plane flies it's been

01:46:58   diverted to dulles great Christ

01:47:01   apartment and airport so boring grades

01:47:03   already snoring dreaming of Brady as he

01:47:05   closes his eyes and I never dreamed be

01:47:09   breeding know if you did you wouldn't

01:47:11   tell me because you are not talking

01:47:12   about dreams

01:47:13   that's true but i think i have literally

01:47:15   never dreamed of you once so you say

01:47:17   that make you sad no I don't dream about

01:47:21   modern people i always dream about

01:47:23   things from my childhood does not

01:47:25   surprise me at all for some reason

01:47:27   mmm

01:47:27   ok for a linguist i tend to bumble over

01:47:31   english i often tumble but despite the

01:47:34   nice term even i can confirm you'll

01:47:36   never advance the bragg humble and take

01:47:39   a big they're big

01:47:42   that's right that's a layout isn't it is

01:47:44   true that bread Campbell has got nowhere

01:47:46   breathe like you're good at the word

01:47:47   creation but that was terrible

01:47:49   do you know what something happened the

01:47:50   other day that was a really good example

01:47:51   of a brand company should written it

01:47:53   down that I wish I could remember

01:47:54   whatever convoluted thing even meant by

01:47:57   the bride humble I don't even remember

01:47:58   anymore

01:47:59   we'll come back to it because i had a

01:48:00   good break humble the other day and I

01:48:02   don't even remember what it was

01:48:04   well there once was a teacher cold gray

01:48:07   who decided to quit one day he packed up

01:48:10   his chalk and he took a short walk to

01:48:12   use auto which drove him away two things

01:48:17   on that i wish i'd use chalk as a

01:48:19   teacher and i wish i had not oh ok i

01:48:23   believe the second part not the first

01:48:25   part

01:48:26   what do you mean I never had choc lab I

01:48:28   don't believe you wish you did either

01:48:29   no I always like chalk and i use chalk

01:48:32   and university all the time when I was

01:48:33   doing physics problems i would've

01:48:35   thought he'd put in like the dusty

01:48:36   dirtiness of it it is dusty and it is

01:48:39   dirty and is a pain in the butt in many

01:48:41   ways but I think there's something nice

01:48:44   about working through problems with

01:48:46   chalk as opposed to with markers and I'm

01:48:48   mathematician swear by that was nothing

01:48:50   else but yeah so you believe me know

01:48:53   now this one starts with a but because

01:48:55   it's part of one of those ones where

01:48:57   someone has written a big narrative and

01:48:58   I've just extracted one of the limericks

01:49:01   from this greater story

01:49:03   ok but within that strange microwave lay

01:49:05   a twist set to ruin his day his plans

01:49:09   were defeated the brew superheated and

01:49:11   made quite the gray hands sauté never

01:49:14   has a very much like the neighbor for

01:49:18   Christmas field to it i don't quite know

01:49:19   why

01:49:20   okay Bree I i am wondering yeah you've

01:49:23   been doing this all day and I am

01:49:25   wondering if you have lost my slightly

01:49:26   because how many of these things do you

01:49:30   have

01:49:31   we're nearly done with this short list

01:49:32   and how do you possibly expect us to

01:49:35   select a winner but maybe we'll find out

01:49:37   about that later you can talk about that

01:49:38   in a minute because I

01:49:39   no idea what is another one for any

01:49:42   would-be ballots tougher referendum by

01:49:44   postcard is tougher but a quick offline

01:49:47   pole spiraled out of control and for

01:49:50   this postal workers did suffer like that

01:49:53   yeah I'm not so sure she suffered mainly

01:49:57   she seemed totally indifferent to our

01:49:59   internet poll that we were running

01:50:01   yeah but that was just one work and they

01:50:03   were like postal workers all around the

01:50:04   world that were having to transport

01:50:06   these postcards for us we made no one's

01:50:08   tougher Noah the county flags of Liberia

01:50:12   were so bad they gave me Listeria i had

01:50:15   my last meal red Guns Germs and Steel

01:50:18   and died from plane crash hysteria man i

01:50:23   really like that one video I thought I

01:50:24   feel like it falls down at the last

01:50:25   rhyme that last time doesn't quite work

01:50:27   for me

01:50:28   hysteria and Liberia it's pretty good i

01:50:31   didn't read that well to be fair but

01:50:33   anyway now you won't get the end of this

01:50:35   one but the cricket fans will say this

01:50:37   is my little nod for someone being

01:50:38   clever

01:50:39   ok this is one for the cricket fans yeah

01:50:41   Brady surprised gray with a ticket to

01:50:44   see a test match of cricket but when he

01:50:46   tried to explain the rules of the game

01:50:49   he was dismissed leg before wicket means

01:50:51   nothing to me it means nothing to you

01:50:53   here's a final one 4209 is the number of

01:50:58   videos you'll find that grantees to

01:51:00   release by the end of next week to only

01:51:03   be slightly behind

01:51:06   yeah I like that it's not bad i like

01:51:11   that one was pretty good yeah it's

01:51:13   pretty good

01:51:13   that's just a few hopefully within yeah

01:51:17   we'll give a few prizes out to ones that

01:51:20   are the best

01:51:21   I don't know how to really decide that

01:51:23   if you got any ideas or I have no ideas

01:51:25   and I really do feel like just reading

01:51:27   through whatever it was ten limericks I

01:51:30   feel like it has warped my brain somehow

01:51:32   did I totally understand i was going

01:51:37   crazy aliens invisible me like I don't

01:51:38   know how you have made it through today

01:51:40   but holy cow reading through them it's

01:51:44   harder than you think it's going to be

01:51:45   and there's something about the rhythm

01:51:47   which just stirs your brain into crazy

01:51:51   yes

01:51:51   it's very it's weird and yeah i think i

01:51:54   really only read and but holy cow I

01:51:56   could not imagine reading all of them at

01:51:59   once

01:52:00   well we'll go back through them and you

01:52:02   and I can have a talk about how to pick

01:52:05   winners and get some prizes at two

01:52:07   people but everyone who sent one we

01:52:09   really appreciate and i'll try and find

01:52:10   a way to share more of them i don't know

01:52:12   if i'll share all of them will say I've

01:52:14   copy and paste most of them so i have

01:52:16   got them on a document but i have to say

01:52:18   that i really like his limerick format

01:52:21   and I feel like the guy he rode him

01:52:23   before Chris Wright who was doing a

01:52:26   limit for each show i love the idea of

01:52:28   there being a limit for each show it

01:52:31   feels like this is the the opposite of

01:52:33   when people leave a first comment like I

01:52:36   saw a video i can let me just leave some

01:52:37   low quality comments immediately within

01:52:39   seconds of it going out right

01:52:42   no no let me craft a piece of poetry

01:52:44   about this literally crafting a home to

01:52:47   describe the episode that you have just

01:52:49   listened to four episodes of hello

01:52:51   internet that feels like the anti first

01:52:54   comment in the reddit is very I did I

01:52:56   want to see like I want to see episodes

01:52:58   every time someone has written a

01:53:00   limerick it is totally the anti first

01:53:03   comment is writing a poem about an hour

01:53:06   podcast to help cement forever the

01:53:09   legacy of the hell original podcast so

01:53:12   that we never leave that Lobby I mean if

01:53:14   I was going to have an official power

01:53:16   hello Internet it definitely would be in

01:53:18   the Limerick over say the Heike which i

01:53:20   think is super pretentious the Limerick

01:53:23   is funnier than the haiku

01:53:24   yeah hi case full of itself someone did

01:53:28   send a high-k thinking now been a smile

01:53:29   like I didn't put them on the list where

01:53:31   they weren't following the rules

01:53:32   exactly no haikus people limericks

01:53:35   yeah limericks limericks is where would

01:53:38   you have the Limerick as the official

01:53:39   partner fellow internet I am NOT

01:53:41   interested in expanding the official

01:53:44   things of this podcast i want to create

01:53:46   these things an official official look

01:53:48   II do you do what you need to do you ask

01:53:51   for my blessing that the Limerick is the

01:53:53   official form of poetry of the hell

01:53:55   original podcast i am not granting that

01:53:57   now we ever grant official status to

01:54:00   anything ever again we'll have to find

01:54:02   out

01:54:02   left mine operated

01:54:35   I've got the Easter Bunny in front of me

01:54:37   looking at

01:54:37   taking off my screen I have literally

01:54:39   been doing this whole conversation with

01:54:41   a full screen of Easter bunnies in front

01:54:43   of your fault i don't know i can

01:54:44   hypnotize I'm hypnotized by all these

01:54:47   Easter bunnies that are just staring at

01:54:49   second one you said was terrifying

01:54:52   they're all going for
