Posts. Hello and welcome to the tailor's PODCAST, podcast. Three meetes. Stop, what the found? That's I'm grant. I'm Stevens. Welcome back season two. Lads. How are you all? A long time going as has how is everyone? Yeah, I'm good. Oh, yes, okay, I'm good. Old Things can why is it always so hard? No, it laugh like Antro always fear called that by know we should be proser this, but no, it's better, especially because we just spent half an hour catching up. You'd think, no, you've got nothing to talk about. No good episode. What of use? What have you's been doing? Like? Give me, give me a like one moment from the past two months. Some an interestings have done interesting if you visiting a new parts of your house, get your eyes tested in different parts of the country. Happened? Played in the snow. Oh, I good for this snow biscus legend. I meet it. Like you know, they go fast. Still means, but the snow was good fun. But that was a nice little surprise. Was it really heavy and there as well? Yeah, with a good few days it built the snow man and in the garden. Was Good Fun. Broke up the monotomy of just being called and crap, the people across the rough to me boat a snow dog and it was amazing, like it is so cool, and then it don't know reach my have one. If she does, I'll get us and then we can put it on the show. Nothing. But it was really cool. But the next day it was gone. So I'm assuming that bend guy that kicked fuck it, that we boy snow man with what? What do we think? What do we think about Jiu Jitsu? John The bin Man? Is that what he's getting? Colds up got so some people that then I can there's a big man and Laurie. I've been man and Laurie. Nope. There's a bit man in Glasgow who was int the Bens and then just at a sort of Jiu jitsu spend kick to knock the head off a store man and the family were watching and there were a few men and they wrote to the consoler. They did something that we boy got fired. We did, we know, talk about that's on the Christmas episode. I don't think so. Not. I was just it just it was just then. Right, it was in that snow a couple weeks ago. Yeah, well, was it? I think so. It's just it's funny, but because the reaction they guy had elost these jobing is like I would date again, and it refused to a refuse to apologize. It said I will help them board about one, but I'm no apologics have about another one, but all the snows melt and I'm no saying sorry. Just I mean, I guess you could have started that. We see an x waste money. True, that's funny, but no, nothing too exciting. I think most people in the same but that's not really too much. Again, stually it should we just jump straight into it? Yeah, right. So there's a lot been happening since since we last spoke and I'm sure everyone who's anyone who's not even on read it knows about what happened on reader in January, which is the game stock short squeeze. Absolute madness. Did you sell these all? Follow along with it happened? Yeah, well, actually manage to pay my mortgage aft recently, because he has a...

I managed to pay off my desk, so I tried to buy game stop stock on treating too and too she's the apple was using and it was blocked before Robin Hood and everyone else. YEA, had start to block it. You just couldn't, couldn't get at all. WHI Sure it's disgusting that they can do that and up man like. Yeah, it's not a free market if you are jump man and blong. No, I'm touching that. Part of this today is so I said before we started, but there's five different links to follow down this rubber hotel, this fool story, or a part of this story. One of them is like what would happened if they hard they blocked it. So, for people that don't know, for anyone who's living under a rock, there's a user on reddit called deep fucking value and he for the past year has been buying game stock stock. So he looked into it, game stop stock. That's hard to see. He looked into it any seen that there's a hundred forty percent of this shares available for the company have been shorted, which, like, I'm not untirely sure how you can shore more stocks than exist, but this he noticed this and he looked into like research in the company. He seen that this was actually undervalued, like this company's worth more money than what the stock prices. So he's going to invest in it and I think he put in I want to see, it was like fortyzero or Fiftyzero dollars. I don't have the don't have the exact amount, but you bought but a whole bunch of stocks and they just started posting updates on reddit. It started in two nineteen, I think. Actually there's over a year ago. It just out post an updates on on read it like here's my holdings. Here's where I think, like this is a bit dodgy. How all these stockbrokers are shortness stock. I'm going on in and eventually they could gain some tracking this. The stock was increasing, so he was making money along the way. I'm trying to find the post. Towards like the end of two thousand and twenty, his stock was valued at three million. so He'd already like made a whole bunch of money from from before until until it start to gain about attraction and read it and then just out in nowhere it can. It went viral, like like a whole bunch of people jump on this bandwagon and and somewhat something clicked in this this community is a gether together and ball street bets with it. Realized that there's so many of them that they could probably such affect the stock market right, like if everyone goes after the same stock, it's going to drive up the price because the demands there and the dead they drove the price up from like what was it? Four dollars a share, two, four, three, nine eight, I think it was the peak, and then Robin Hood Bandit everything and it's yet if you have a look on on deep fucking values user profile, you'll see like his earning reports. So at one point he's got like forty seven million dollars in his account, which is which is pretty insane, and he still hold him as he's got seventeen million left just now because is the price went back down, but he's still still holding you know. Yes, I want to like walk through like like a bunch of these things, like a bunch of a bunch of different, different parts of it. So if you go in Wikipedia, there's the game stop short squeeze, which sort of explains what all the says own and what happened it. It wasn't just game stock. There was like a whole bunch of things that was a blockbuster. Blackberry Nachia, like they try to get out bunch of these companies that were like it is and s kids I'll remember vividly, and he gave he sort of encourageable to buy all these stocks the the broker, so one of the brokers. He went on to say that like this, the price would have been worth thousands, about a thousens of dollars, if they hadn't, if they hadn't put the blocks of if, Robin Hood and and all these other appsode stopped the trading on it. So interactive brokers, see your admits are. Without buying restrictions, Jimmy would have gone up to the thousands. It just really just trailed off when the when they when they blocked it.

This guy's then going on like the person is deep fucking values. Then gone on to the whole bunch of interviews. So you can go to the Wall Street Journal and check this guy out. He's still buying like tens of thousands of stocks. His last purchase was two days ago at Fiftyzero shares. He's also up in front the Senate and the US to like tell them what happened and why I like what his role was. There's people that he's been sued because people didn't realize he's actually a trader. Like he has a lot of knowledge but this market. And even though he was like yeah, but I told people that that's how I knew there was like a hundred four percent short cell. You don't just you don't just see that in guess that's what that means. Yeah, just before you go ahead there as well, you said two days ago it's current in it way first of Feb UARY. So it's been gone on for quite some time though as well. Yeah, I think so. It was. It's peak was the twenty one January, right. Think it was running bout. Then it was late January. Yeah, just I don't know if you'll touch on it, but excuse me, but me does wonder if it's like a long corn, and his part as well. Obviously, with his knowledge, he knows fine well that eventually it's going to get traction and he's going to make a fuck done wan from you, even if I was by getting people on board. But the fact that he still buying it and it's like not anywhere near what it's worth just says he's trying to fuck over the Wall Street Guyas Jo him. Still See, even if it was him just like pulling the long con, you still help me a lot of people that otherwise with me have got there anyway. So that's yeah, II the way. See, that's the thing. A lot of people have made quite a lot of money off of this regardless. Jo Mean, but that's the problem. People see this and get on the hype and go, I'M gonna try and getting on this and see if I can get an actually you can buy and the appost quid and yeah, it's just it's smad. I think you do need stay away from the stuff if you don't quite dress that a hundred percent. Yeah, so like that, so gay, he he had butt and he'd already made millions. But by the thing, this would got traction. So I don't think it was like a long, a long game for him or, like you said, he wouldn't still me, but he would have sold evering at the peak, and he didn't. He held all that stuff. So even though you had yet forty seven million of whether it was, he's held it now and he's current. His last update was February. Seventeen. If every nineteen for the seventeen point three million in game stock stocks, the value of them and which is still that's enough money to retire. Surely suppose at the end of the day, if he started with fifty Gee's, yeah, and to Gime, then he saw his he made plenty on that. Even if emily gets a million out of us, and let's be honest, if he's into this industry, then he's probably got a lot of money in this pocket. Anyway, fair play to the game, but you made a you made a good point in which, like, a lot of people made money off this, but they were jumping on the bandwagon. So if you scroll through the Care Wall Street bitch just now, you'll see some stuff it's like, yeah, I made I'm still up like a couple grand, but there's people who are down like Sixteenzero, seventy threezero. There's a lot of people who just jumped on that bandwagon too late and thought that yet everyone's going to keep holding as well, it's going to keep going up forever. And now they've just lost more money than them what they had before. Yeah, and the problem people don't realize as how much and how quick this flock juts. And not only that, you've got to think about like time difference and stuff. And then, like the markets in the UK Open and close at different times as like they do in Wall Street, and there's so much that keep on top of. If this isn't like a full time job, it's really hard to like do it properly and not end up fucking up like that. I've even tried it with a few trip to occurrencies and stuff, but by the time he's like made a little bit of money, you log on like a day later and you're down like thirty dollars or something. I'm child's play all things considered, but yeah, I can imagine how bad this has been. fucking go, let alone good for some. I didn't. That's like the perfect way put out. You can, I need to be all I know. Not If you're going to do it properly, and I you can, I just half Aso. Yeah,...

...for sure. So I don'ny I invest that any trade like then a day treat like this. I'm no, I'm not sitting. I's for why I should. Wouldn't. Bitcoin was going up and down. That's a lie. I was. That's a few years ago, before the current big boom and where it was going to twenty or thirty grand or whether it was before then. I've been buying in someone like a week, but like a hundred pound or something. A couple hundred quid. Oh my God, that's doubled. Sweet. I'm taking take about two hundred pounder and I'm what you tonight if it him. Some beers do that stuff, but like noight. So the long term investment, I think it's fine to just put your money and leave or set up recurrent payments into like the Foto and fifty and just just leave it. Yeah, it then did. It's a risk, like it comes to a risk. Job Means so you do need to be committed a lot of this time. Did you see? This is the money I can't afford to lose. Dump it and then just not look at it for a while. Like that's the best way to do if you don't know anything about it and you're even going to lose or come out really strong from it. Right. My my best officant was the FO hundred and fifty. was put in a bit of money into that in March. It's like twelve grand. I didn't have twelve grand. That's much the whole thing was worth. We could by a part of it. If you got a couple hundred pound you put that in. It went up to its currently twenty one thousand. So almost doubled. So if you put in five hundred quid, like that's yeah, five hundred poind free that you never get from a bank like on the whatever's the bank interest? Knows your p Zero five percent or something crap Y rndous. Yeah, it's almost almost doubled since then, which is insane. That's that's kind of where I'd like. If you're going to invest, put your money there. And sure it's an absolute risk, like people could realize there's two in a billionaires in the world and and it all collapses, but for collapses is fucked anyway. It's fun. It doesn't matter. True, and this is just meant also Wall Street bits, like do you folks follow this? This sub a lot. I've been falling. I can abously. I have seen as Lewis, but that they before I can I wash o that. I kind of like. I guess in the hype of this I noticed the wall streets bit like sub bread it pop up just to know school through some written that was before I heard about all the GM stuffs. That must have been when it was sort of gaining traction, and I had a look at it and I think their whole so if also whatever is just like stupid like don't trust the investment shit that's going on in here, because it's just people taking crazy risks and all that nonsense. So then when I looked at as like that's kind of funny, and then after that I seen all the GM shows, like Oh, okay, maybe there's a bit more to the subread than meets the eye. It's I'm not checked it for it. So I fought this for it for a few years now. They've got nine point two met. They called the followers to degenerates, which quite funny, but it's like the the the most popular thing on that. I think this were stalks comes from. Like all that that, although sort of means the the most popular thing. One of the most popular things on this used to be lost porn, which is people putting up screenshots of their lot of Robin Hood Account when they'd lost hundreds of thousands of dollars and being like well, fuck it, guess it was a good life see, and that was kind of is the that was the extent of this channel and you'll still see it. You'll see like a few good posts, like a kid today posted up he's like yeah, I paid off my sixty grand of student loan date, like thanks while street bets, but the majority is like I just lost all this money that I didn't have in the first place. What's it called? What's it called a Robin Hood when, like, you buy a stock and it gives you like a one to ten? Not What's that? Damn the bit. So maybe, maybe I'll get it wrong here because we don't have Robin Hood, but I think the way Robin Hood Works is the same as like what's the UK version of Robin Hood? What's the APP with the Blue Icon like coin? Bas No, no, it's I don't I don't know if I've still got in stold. Is it free? Free? Yep,...

...free trade. It's a free trade. How the one I don't know if I've got installed. I know it was free something. I I'm not free to it. Does a different one UK version of Robin Hood. I'm sure someone listened to a screaming at me right now. Anyway, well, I try and find out what that was called. To the three version rubbit, and basically you can say I want to buy Bitcoin and they'll give you a ratio of like one to ten. It's not called ratio, though. They'll give you one to you buy let's see, bit coins for a thousand pounds and you've got a thousand pounds, then they'll give you ten bitcoin. Orf you've got a hundred pounds, will give you like one bit coin, and so that you're gain and loss goes with that ratio. So if you put out if the if it if it doubles the two grand, you get that extra grand or you get that that nineteen hundreds or your over the hell. It works, but if it goes down, it's also the like your then you've got ten times the risk. And I think that's what happens with Robin Hood. I don't understand quite I'm sure people aren't actually losing hundreds of thousand. So I don't know how the APP works, because it feels like I know what you're talking it feels there's a lot of money, but I think that's rabbit and that's like. Yeah, a lot of these like screenshots are of people invest on a little bit of money not understanding what the risk is or what these ratios are either making or losing big time. But you have scored through. It's like this. This one person. Seventeen hours ago, I lost half a million in the gem short battle and over a hundred Fiftyzeros and this other thing, hardcore porn loss. You're like, Yep, this is just a screenshot of this person just making mistake after mistake and like the prices went up, so they've bought it to go down. The prices went down, so they bought it to go back up, and the opposites just happened each time. So the accumulated, yea, five hundred thousand dollars worth of debt. I've learned from this, though, is it's scary how many, not like billionaires and stuff, are that who may rich people are on the Internet just play around with the stuff all day and they're like some half, I don't care, and it's all these people that got rich off of like Bitcoin in the early days and stuff like, okay, I'll put a couple hundred grands into that. It's mental as a sleet, but talks on it. I've you seen that tick tock with a guy walks up to like really nice cars, he's like Hey, what are you do? Or Really Nice House, he's not, so it's like hey, what are you swear they not at ten times. It's like I'm in finance, I'm some kind of day trader at my stockbroker, Rachel, showed me one that all day and it's that guy. Any Chapter House. The's like, oh, so human organs and ice cream. They went upctive business, but the guy who looked like give us any that stuff and honestly got, I believe it, cheese. It's just do the corn work, human organs and they scream cheese. Thank you. Keeps the organs on Nice. You need a little treat at night, like after selling all those organs. It's been and Jerry's think it's like it takes at a long or something that I'll be calling palm to pop. I don't know. When you think of it on Ma just sticks of like selling body parts. You want them to be fresh. You freees them. You might as well sell a scream as well. That's a good vice. If you get pulled over, you can see that's just feel of ice cream and hate the your parts underneath speaking out, which you'll believing sounds of it bad bud hop inch you up. It's Yourt to buy somebody scream just closes the door behind you. Jeez, Dang cool. That was that was my that was my thing. I just I just want to talk about it a little bit the him. So it was yeah, so like there's Yeahm is what it is, because there's a few things like so, like ongoing. This person still invested, deep fucking value, still invested. He's up at the Senate in the US. And then he also has this clocks class action lawsuit against him where people didn't realize he knew what he was talking...

...about for people who lost like a lot of money, which is which is fun. Also. Yeah, never listened to Wall Street bets until the one time it actually works. Yeah, I love it. Just know you're going risk, then you're going to be severely and it well, you will never need to walk a day in your life again. You gonna all that day. I want to know because, like shout, there was those people who made so much money and I just wondered, like who, how many of them actually cashed out and made that money versus got greedy in for the Maya cashed up with a I'm going to buy back in. It's going to keep going that. The problem is, like people can only hold unto it for so long, right, especially these people that didn't know much about it and just hopped up on the bandwagon. They're just there to make money. So THAT'S WHY I slip back down the shutter again. And it well, I think it done because, like you just people couldn't buy it anymore, like they stopping at the trade it, and the the hedge funds also their think happy the Hedge Fund that that Short is that? By the way, they got a bailout from one of the big banks. Who you they like said be good for it, because they's so they there was no way they could have paid the money back. So they had two others if they kept going. So they had to like lique all their stocks and release them again, or all their shorts and sell them off. And she's no short selling works. I can I read opponent when I us was happening, but it's still but gonna. So it's like loaning somebody's stock, isn't until like, yeah, on the ladder almost, and then you commit to pay them back what you vote taken from them as that. Yeah, so even if you make money on it, you get the difference and then you give them their stocks. That yeah. So I think, yeah, that's you buy a stock and then sell it at that price. Are you still sorry? You see, you're going to have it. You sell a stock at that price, but you don't really have that stock. So you say you're not for fourty nine dollars. I think it's only worth thirty. So the price comes down, it's time for you to like give that stock back. You can then buy it for thirty and you keep that pineteen dollars that you made or whatever the difference. Yeah, it's just, yeah, just bet in. The price will gold lower, which is a bit shit. It was like what happened with Tesla. It's why Elwan's a big fan of Wall Street. Better it's and does all the stork beans, because they also rally behind test. I'd like trying Fuckul people that the hedge funds which which are short and Tesla and in betting against it. And we're also happening with Tesla stock if it did yours. To See Tesla and wells, the Elon Musk and has crypto involvement, but he just he just like he'll tweet one once and people go nuts. Did you see? Like obviously Tesla invested loads of money into bitcoin and then the difference ramped up and they made like seven hundred million on what they invested in like a day. was. So was it? fucking men? One point five billion are am I making that up? How much? Laughing? Yeah, that's a hundred fifty. One point five billion into bitcoin and then made's like seven hundred million off it like within. That's in mental hang. But like see, when you've got that much money, that's basically a license, just a print mail. When you've got that influence, you can just say that, like you see, is one what and he's just made me money. We've one what. So I'm just waiting for the wish to go back up. The test invested one point five billion on the February. The eight it's holding has remained the same size. So it's just putting that one point five bill and that's it. Hidn't will reportedly have made nine hundred and thirty million dollars profit, which is thirty percent more than the company has made from car sales last year. My God, yes, it's made more. And Krypton concern like days than they have a years. Didn't Microsoft also like a bunch of cut it wasn't just test, all right, like a bunch of comptech companies. I see Teslas on with a Tech Company, but I think Microsoft and stuff also or apple or someone. A lot of these companies are already involved in like block tune. But I think the sort of fire the trigger on like big investments. The problem is that's a lot of money and one wallet now for Bitcoin. So it does runp up the...

...volume, but it also puts it in one person's hand. So it's just a rich still getting richer in a new way. But yeah, that's like get all them. It's men. It's actually who wanted. Goes at like I've got an idea of guys ready. It's I could just imagine with the Joe Rogan podcast where he's like I've got this all right. What if I feel get a bit coin and it water s obviously with that's a cracking idea. That poise was spot on there, by the way, spotiled. I think the thing that Ilana is lily. He doesn't really have those conversations. I think he just walks in and just does his next stupid thing. People like live it and elss worked so far. So have a like to stand on here point. I think the only butter major flag I've seen him got is when I caught that guy a Pedo with a submarine and I try to save the did it and it was literally like just a world pedo when I wasn't even any past. Yeah, it was something like that. I listen to it. I like him, but years a glacial character's a there's a good podcast called business wars and they did a tesla versus blue origin, which is Jeff Bezos's space program like the Jeffie. So who's it? Chippies or send Virgin Atlantic, I think? Think it seems called blue origin. Yeah, and so it's like a SPACEX story versus them. It's like super interesting. Or the virgins and Amazon melged with the space program thing. I think it's just on part of it. All right, blue origin? It may not. I've Been Virgin Jeff be sauce. No, maybe it's just not. So maybe it's separate. I thought I thought Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson were part of blue origin. Of folks the same company. How Kol the males pictuls by away. Have you seen them yet? As mad it's crazy, man. You should look that up. Loose new ones are some. I those leak a new rover on Mars and it's like fork. Would you say? It's really clear? Footage of males is it one were spinning round. See this recently? Yeah, it's cool. It's so weird, man. Yeah, I'll take a look at them after this. Well, I did see though, recently. It's quite funny. As you know. It's like pictures of, let me get the straight as it Venus or some so like. The Russians managed to put her over up. Then it lasted like rows before it just melted's like two pictures of it and I have to show that. Didn't see that. I think it was just like this. Is it being some duper? I can't remember. Yeah, Venus Call Linkn that wink in the show notes as well. For Folk. A cool would use too. Would you go space if you're the chance, if I could come back, I don't like like Mars, like the seven Mass Nah, rather be off there, for spoke about us, because remember, Louis, we seeing you just fucking pack up and go. We have now, in name on, I'm not gonna eat it, die on some days, a planet that's probably not even got. Why not? I did the Subab bottle things and like do your path of him. You can get the fust adult mask coin Morse, going to malls, going you don't see these talking of its own crypto accounting, and that's what Marsl US masking the day that gets really...

...stunned by and some that's all I'm saying. And threadles chips and so it's kind of see that like popular and after have that Patreona whatever, just start dumping that. It stops. That's in use. Kiars money right, really invested in Youse can get bet. I'll show his big I'll show his mal production value. To be fair, it's a low risk for the audience and no risk for us. This is one one, because they just pay for the contents. A better us. But I spend money. That's not us, because if we start making fortunes on it and they see us like every week getting bigger on bettle hangs all and you just start showing up all lessen the chees, not suppose, if the pill support, that point is too late the duo. You just need you come to this episode of threaders podcast. I'm in the Caribbean. Screen anywhere, no green screen anywhere. I'm on my way to Mars. I've you seen this new there's a new site. I'm trying to find the name of it and it's basically support twitch steamers by then create and their own coin so that the coin for this site is like public switch trade and it's got a price. It twitch steamers can go this platform. They create their own coin which you can trade for the real coin, which you can trade for money. You're a heard of. This sings like betterments, it feels. That's right. Just before you start bashing it, I've got a proposition for ball for you. This is this is some day. I think. Yeah, what would you call your joint going? Jump Coins, jump, jump I jump coins. Jump Change. Hop, jump change. WHO'S THE CHUMP? CHUMP change? Any use my investors? I kind of feel like for me find any of this thing. What's it was called the stride and a right ridio something, and just saying should be maybe move on. I feel like, I know, we're happy bit back, but well, but leather. Yeah, that we are leaving right. So I fund the Coin Rally, don't I? Oh, are Y, oh, let's feel confused. Sorry, so you can buy that's rally because like somebody buys, like all right, no, so so what they could buy you? You create your own coin for your create for you your channel and the mid they'll buy five coins and they all see Steven play this game would be I bought a bottom coins and then you can trade them for real rather alley tokens. Oh so it would be like people who want a player and stuff. It's like little bought these and then it's basically paying me a baby beat play with people. So they completely. They could say. You could see like Oh, I want people to buy a hundred coins and then so I could I so I can afford to do March whatever the fuck you body. or it could be like, I don't know, yeah, we put you get to choose, like what I do in each level. You get to control my character and level through my twitch stream. If you buy x coins, you could do these things I want, and you could also just feel like I don't need to stream games to make money anyware exactly. You can see that complicated. We achieve the same thing as like donations and stuff. I's. I was thinking, like it seems like butts in donations and subs kind of cover that. All right, it's it's donations, except twitch. Then take a cup and it's like the more creators that get...

...involved in use the rally coin in theory, the higher value the rally coin that's so. If it goes up, problem you've got. But like to today it's down seven percent. So like you've lost seven percent of your money, but like tomorrow it may be up ten percent. That's in theory, if he is right, great investment opportunity for years. It's lower right now, I'm telling you, since gonny swing. So the reason I found out what this? That's a mates who work for a financial company. They were doing like a twitter fleets. It's where version of clubhouse, and one of them, I've created their own coin. I don't know this person. So they created their coin on rally and then we get people in this court like invest in it before, before it's like properly and I'm so they can get an early. You know what the price goes something, they'll make a we got money over that, which is which is a madness. You can just keep your con like that. No saying that's what happened. Mind is that you covering your time. Just grasped them in snatch. Well, although you know them, hopefully don't listen to this podcast. I guess hopefully do. If they've got a fallen they can start two years out. Really maybe I'll buy some of those cords. I buy a few coins. Fed US going. See. No, you're all right now, not so good. Glad that I know I can make mine coin. So my thread is actually one I'll be my talk with for a while before that is both use held a go so Soshima in the game yelled yes, played amazing game. Both use should play it. But it's basically sat in the island the SOSHIMA and fans of the game have put an I think it was two hundred and sixtyzero dollars and crowd funding to fix the real Tory Gate on the island because there was a bad storm and a lot of the Di Island was damaged. So funds of the game actually put in a crowd funding to make repels on this island. It is, by all accounts, kind of forgotten about by Japan, even though it's partly it's just kind of like no left to rot. But can a noise, well funded and stuff. Basically Scotland and the UK. But it just made me think you how good but gaming can be. Year about the toxic talks. How did you see that? What talk toxicity? So you're a bit little order bad and because he's violence and not as than that. But then you see things like this and it's just people who played this game and it can I connected what I'm enough to put on thera money to repel this island. Were they hoped they ever been mast the let's see, but that the want to drop that amount money to repair I get that probably has an emotional value of them. It's just as games touch someone think them day. That so that games based online somewhere. I so Sheima Islands as a real place. So the game is actually set John Our real invasion. That happened with a Mongoes as well, and there was a big storm, and so she met those two bag storms and Soshima and the first one can I chase them mongoes away, but then they came back and and new world. But the game kind of covers that. Is If your army and you the ghost as this dorm that kind of chases on my way. So you're kind of list on plusonified in the game. It's really good. Cheese sounds well. I was going to say those. So obviously it's marked on this place and this strain is in the game as though it's Tory gets. You know him. So see the big gets. It kind of go up like that and then I've got a bag the big of some of them got damaged and the storm and it's just the repels for it, because obviously they'll...

...be enough probably over a thousand years. Is this a recent storm? That? I I don't know. This is a recent storm. I think it was a tsunami that actually hit the island and no storm this time, and it was a kind of done a lot of damage to the Y on itself. And I thought you meant they were like waiting for all these years, almost, because it's yeah, sorry, cool is it was the game. It's get like this is me, he I never, I don't know, heard of this game before. Was the game made to pay for its like the PO seeds of the game? No, no, no, that's as Gamar that these fans of the game that have made this kickstarter to help fix it a bit, the fundery pels the island, because the game obviously touched them in some way enough. Whether they would want to do that, that's about. Seeing that, though. I've found us for the way I going. It was two hundred and Sixtyzero. I don't know what it's kind of my setting on. So it's probably way male, but let's smash the initial goal. I think it was something like Eightyzero, the kick start I was after, and it probably went right over that with a goal. That's mad. I can see the as was a population of thirtyzero people. I was envisioning a deserted dialing there for some reason. No, no, people do look, that money was to the people, like the local community, to make it better and not just like they fix the gate and then someone keeps the bunny. Now that I'm I'm pretty sure it will go on any of that repels and stuff throughout the island because, like I see, that's kind of it's kind of by all accounts, it's like just any day or support, which it's not getting. So hopefully that does go towards help from the island. That's amazing. If it's smashed it's target, surely it has to go. Is it is like an update on it. When was thus was about a month ago. Two months ago, sorry, two months ago. I found the thread and I've just been my talk about our son's but because we're on the highest and never got at yet, and I was just curious as to whether they've started restoring it. Or not. Don't know what sort of they don't follow the same seasons as as do this and no, maybe they can't start it yet. It looks just, you know, looks beautiful, man like if you scrolled done on that link, like the one you sent, sort of like to an article on screen rentcom, like the falls look beautiful, honestly like this. Mad playing the game up. I got really hooked at yea and as like playing an oil opening. It's so good. Man's hands down the best game I played in like five years. But I've always wanted to go to Japan, but now I think when eventually go out, we'll go to Soshima, way along there, which was never on married all before. I think you ask, I went to Japan for like a long weekend, like four days. That you yeah, we work. We were like recruiting. It's some conference and I was like right, well, like, I'll pay for the hotel myself so I can come back on the Sunday, sort of Thursday, Friday working, Saturday, Sunday just exploring the city. It was meant also like a whole bunch of these strines that they're just everywhere, or these whatever they are, and you go for the gates and you like you get to like wash your hands and stuff, and it's all very like spiritual and very like there's a whole bunch of there's things that you do is you walk through this and try to experience these and what they're what they call there not shrines right there, like like our version of national parks, I guess temples, but there's the gates or's, there's forest as all this stuff around it, and it was just, I don't know, it's like super peaceful to walk around that. Did you go on any Onsen's when you were the into any war? It's like the hot spring and I think doing hot springs, or if in that I did so, I din'd take a bunch of these. Like we walked from the forest and the gates, see as me as I could and try to go to the fish market and it was like get up it for go down, you jake. They do like tourist tickets. You can just walk in and get a ticket and going. That's like sweet, I'm up, I've got jet LAG. It's fine for M boom, I'm there and I'm want. This must have...

...been the Sunday or this must have been the or wherever day of the week it was, but it was like this is the only day it's not open. I think damn can leaving tomorrow. By all accounts, the flight chatting and petrol stations as amazing as well. All really, and petrol stations, like everything over there, could be amazing because everything's just done. Is such a start under honestly, man, I would people have worked effect over. It's my dream to go, hopefully for my fellow I was supposed to go the lawyer but had a kid and bought a whos instead. Soil good trade was good trade off and Jesus invest the House and males coins. Just ask the going it to be at my house? I don't know. I would love to go to Japan. Where about some in Jabam is it? You said go it's I am all sorry, got Japan has an island. Thank you. I was in the cousins wikipedia other I was in and Tokyo, as in the couple's. So we like the the big man busy street. Like it for the Cross road, Change Cou Cross and still one. And then I went to like a bunch of gaming stores. Just did you go a maybe a key Habara village? The real it take a alive. Yeah, that works. One of the coose things. There's like a there's like a whole bunch of these like little neighborhoods which are just restaurants back to back, but it's like the streets or sour small as, just alleys. You can go in the restaurant, you sit on the street and there's maybe four or five stools and a chef just cooks for those people. But they'll be cus like up up and down these alleys, especially lunchtimes for business men just coming to go in and like getting whether it is that they're one to eat. It was some of the best food ever. I don't see eight sea food on that trip. I don't eat se if you don't like it, but what to like also, not be rude. See I'm the same as that. I don't eat sea food, but I've always said when I go to Japano I'll eat it like because I feel like you can eat it. It's also the freshest fish are probably ever going to eat in the world. So you can really done on those up and we're on this boat ceiling down like a river through the food the city. It was like put on by the conference. So we went down this and it was like this big fresh plotter of this fish and there's like all these industry leaders, really people a look up to, the designers and stuff. I was like, well, I can't be rude. Can I have a beer please? Lovely, it's great Um feel I before I came, I was starving. Do you know? It's sad, like you got to experience it and the way that a is. But when me and Luisco, it's probably never going to be like that I get well, not for a long time, but whenever be like that again. So going to be like a lot of places are gone of close down because of the covid and there's going to be a lot of distance in as well. So you're not going to be what he certainly the restaurants next day for R and dom strangers and stuff. True, of Japan not done quite well with the whole pandemic. I don't know how ye all know, but I originally I think they were doing pretty well, but continue. I just remember seeing a couple of pictures and it was like loads of places with shutles and stuff up, because it's a shame. I suppose everywhere is going to be affected, but my big worry about Japan has I'm done. It goes so much that I'm going to neat like not just money to get there and money to do stuff there, but just like a designated bank balance to by stuff. Well, my Keysha, I'm just going to go, but I need to copy something, some money to find I was going to buy a case when I was over there and shut it back. That was my plan. So weird, weird, pooked and we will going to Japan for two weeks. We're going to have a weekend, Talkyo and then can I travel? The rest we're going to go. Youre like Mount Fudge and I so I can stuff. And then I was going to fly to South...

Korea because it was cheaper to fly there. Then it was to fly to London and then stay in South Korea for a long weekend and then fly home. We ever been amazing, ever so good man. I was hoping to have got away from my favorite as well, but hey, it's always a future and the wildnded. What you gonna do? We'll record afreados episode open. You know what, by go SA Sashima, you're there and we're just party up in the game. Put Out. It's you're going to say it by Stephen Coin, all that money, by chump change. It's from change. It's a good name, but I feel like tripped always has to be clean. Well, I'm I'm flatten the game board me. I'm changing it chump change coin, a true chump change coin, my true revolutionary sounds pretty good. I liken to use some photo is to my instagram that won't be in discord. That probably won't be at the show notes of a temple, one of those little restaurants and an empty fish market, because I still walked around. I'd made it up at that tide of the morning. Just walked in the BASMAL. Did you think it really clean as well? It's one thing everybody always says like the street still it's super clean. I don't think you can choo Chooingu bund or at least like there's no hunger on the streets. I know. So you can't hear they they. There's always someone like with a pressure Washer clean up Shong gum everywhere, so you don't normally see it as you walk around. You can't smoke on the streets, which was just nice. Like walk. I don't use that. I don't smoke. It was just nice to walk around and not smell smoke constantly. So you've got to go into a smoking room or somewhere else. It's quite bad. And restaurants and stuff or smoking Nona, although they have like small sections. I know Japanese people smoke quite a bit. It's very common. No one know where I'd at least had it, but like I was in those sections or some maybe maybe it was ant separated or something. That was cool. And then yet also just being like six foot three tall white man walking through Japan means a lot of people will stop and take your for that's what I was going to ask. Did you get the battle? Like they even asking, just just stopped in front of me, looking up and going snap, cool by it's mentor because I would have thought that they would have seen enough to risk tee. Like, Guy, I can guy, I can get used to I thought that would have been the norm byner. I don't think like yeah, I feel like I stood out a lot when that a lot, but you would think that obviously Japan gets a lot of tourists, especially in Tokyo. You would think that they would be that's another one. You know. I mean it's just yeah, I would think they would blend done, but obviously know because, like you see, a lot of people have came back with the same story. It's mad, I can I just remember, though, like one thing stood out was it was raining like I don't know what, and I could just member like everyone's umbrella was at my level, of my face, and it was like I just got to keep my eyes Shit. It's a yeah, that's like walking down one of those like weird streets, which is all was. It got that costplace styal thing, like it's like a street fill of that. Basically it was. Yeah, I'm assuming there were a lot of them were just school kids, so I was a lot taller than them. It's mad. I just know on my bucket list for Japan. I don't even know if it's a real thing you can do or by the time I go there you'll be able to do but I remember seeing it once. I've never seen it since, but you could do like a tour around the city Tokyo with flick a micro pick. Oh, that's it. You just like the progressing Mario Karts called what I've seen that. That's what I thought it was going to peggy small. So it's called Peggy's. Normally I remember it vividly. I just cannot find out. I'll drying it, but basically what they say is you go, we pay...

...for your too. But because it's a pig, he basically just need to follow it. It picks its own root. It's not like a Hugo, where you want to go to pick comes if you just fout. So bizarrem, but that's the appeal of Jipa. It's just all this like when obscure, when you wan go in. Those going to be the no ESKAPROOM, but like a game room that you could got in it and it was basically like you played metal gear, but you are snake and you had to sneak out in the guards and stuff and as like. I cannot wait to either. I'M gonna be on my element here, but remember you like ficking six, three years old, a guy and all made for like five a box, just a little wrap that on my waist. Everything you call for your ass and wait, he's cheating. He's cheating. I'm stuck yours. I don't I thought. I sorry, I'll do it, man. You could walk up it like cremate, a cropper Ella, just blend right an maybe you got Bagel, I don't know. I'm pretty sure. Where is the average in Japan? That must be a bit five five, five, sex five seven. Oh, that's you're tall, short off damnsome. What we wait, what Heye, a your list. You're five five Malesia and the words. If we say five fucking six MOLASIA, the average height is five point four eight. So you're above average. Looks like I'm gonna I'm pretty much in the UK Alvin Che Women in Japan. I'm taller on that. So that's the one. Stevens, you see your sixty six one, six one, all right, but it's kind of sex sex, foot six one. It's kind of like and between. We're both giants. To me. You are just below average, I think, for Dutch mass, and then it lends. It's like three is the average viking? Just below average viking. May know. Anyway. Where's the fundraiser? By the we like, what was the FUNDRAIS run for this? This out was on text star. It's a good Japanese version. I watched to try and find out how much they did made. The thing I read there was like a hundred ninety thousand dollars or something, but again I think that's from that would have been. It was two hundred and sixty when our naturally came across it. So how did you get about all these islands? Like, is it just a boat? Minds any work? Probably a fairy. To get to Soshima they have like the hrospeed trains or train, but I don't suffer. But I don't think that with gone another Ireland with it. Make goes underneath for that else the channel money getsunamis in order. I'd bed you rust putting one on the other. These trains are fast and there's a tsunami coming. I don't know how tea. That's the one thing I wish I did and every to do, like the billet train or anything that did. The underground wasn't the same as seems to be. Does any underground? They've got definitely they've got like all the trains as well there because because how parked the trains get. In Japan they've got trains that are just for women because there's a lot like creeps. It just trying it fond though, people on the train. So if I don't I don't know if it's women on the train as a women only carriages. So fun fact. You can't buy an iphone in Japan, which...

...does you can't turn off the sound of the camera, like even on silent. So my friends are sho was with me and she was like, Oh, if you hear people like taking photos with their phones, do not be like during like the tops and stuff, like they're not being rude, you just can't turn the sound off. And my God, that's it is. So people upscut op scirt follows up up girls dresses on trains and stuff. So they banned like they made it. We can't turn off the y the camera sound. So like if you're if you're cinema or if you're at this conference or whatever the hell you're doing, like someone really quiet, you'll just hear, like fair enough, yes, maybe one for another episode that. Yeah, I guess that goes into the darker play. Such a fan where a lot of meals have love and mummy issues and stuff, and there's a lot of like some weird stuff going on over you should watch chriss broad on on Youtube as well. He's channels are broad in Japan and it's just it basically an English guy who loves el though yeah, he's ready. was a brilliant well, there we move on, shall we? They should move on. I don't know who far we are surprised. So, looking more close to them, I think the lead up votes, because it was like five links and a user, but this was a proper thread up. Folks, I'm gonna give it. I'M gonna give it up for first of the season. Two. Well, I think we should just give you an up vote. Is Well, Grunto, I forgot about that whole aspect. To be always due to our short let's go back in all three threads. Today we receive no, no, hordlemost will know how jewels. Yet up until this point, every friends an up. That's nothing. Wife Snow Fair. Man's not much time, though. Will just will, just run it in there that it can be like a more of a fun fact interesting thing than I along winded discussion. So my friend is posted on. Today I learned by us a proxy walkxing and the tail is today I learned a man was struck with an axe sixteen times but still went about his morning routine after regaining consciousness, despite heavy bleeding and severe brain damage. The part of his brain that handled reasoning was damaged, but the part that controlled habits was intact. So there's a few strange things to this one, but essentially the Guy Sleeping and touch upon it more, on a set, but his son attacked him and his mum, which his wife, during the night with an axe absolutely chopped the grab it his head. Strange if is that the guy that the guy lost consciousness. Understand up like because you've been scudded in the head sixteen things to an axe and but actually gained consciousness again the next morning. And it's brains like damage and all projects that just tell them that something's wrong here. So we just woke up and went about his day. There is a comment that somebody sort of digested from what happened and it talks about what he actually did the next day. So it woke up, he used the bathroom, he shaved, which another comment touches upon as the fact that he was missing like half. He was very asking was chief we did. It must have been a we here douse. He died in the end. I think that's I thought that was a nice happily can I made it, but the month survived not as it's bizarre as fuck. So that let's play you should have gone seconds with the hand and I no, no, it's nothing to make those bad anyway. So he left blood on the walls, hand prince and doorways, wandered through the house, went to the kitchen, loaded up the...

...dishwasher, made his lunch for work and then somebody else said they also went outside to get get the newspaper for the mail box and locked himself out and then remembered that he had a spar key under the map to let him sell back in the house. And then some point after that, show you are you look at the images on the article, which is the pictures. Yeah, also it's a picture of each of those who's a picture of the bathroom, him shaving, the blood on the wall, and then it's just it's a last pictures just his feet with all that doormat. Obviously must have been reaching for that key. Yeah, cheese. So it's weird, like you can dig into this comment and obviously they'll put it in the notes on the reddit post, but for everybody else to do. But does there's a lot to dig into heresy. Also, apparently some people say, like the Sun that done it had no signs of this event. Is Life from one night just to say that fucking read it. So not only did he like chop off his mom and Dads, like in that part, the mum got rushed to hospital and that moment blamed the Sun Jesus lost consciousness, and then when she woke up, like she couldn't remember anything about it, adamant that he wouldn't have done it and couldn't have done it. So even though she's like mangled, politely put it, Mashed Up, and lost an eye and stuff, she still stuck by them and stuff and like gathered up the money through other people to like help bail out the sun and we'll stee was on trial. He was like living with her still and he was like looking after must the part of just read, actually trying to like help her and stuff like that. And Shet, all that time she was like standing by and like wasn't my son. My son didn't do this. Absolutely the most mental still he's for absolutely terrifies me. Man, like probably never gone harp and touch with, probably won't have a harden, but having kids one they met. Just mash me up, man, because this part is going to be played back at court. Like I he actually had a premonition of this. Its mates just getgled lost. Have Been The fother Stephen that put these thoughts interest chilhood. I've got clear evidence. Stephen had suggested this earlier. paypathing away from me while we absolutely bonkers. That's bizarre one. I did not know your brain worked like that. I didn't they can that like I thought if you dashed in, it was like like like if you hit a process or on a computer, it's just done right. Your heat was the same way, like if you're if you are a cut in the brain. That was that. You are not knock because those I thought as well, like was that guy look funniest? Cage, I think his name was. It blew up Dyna me. It was try to at me. GREE WORAD tracks, basically a season the La days of America now, but I met all get stuck in you seed and but was I don't even know. I'm sure it lost emotions and it couldn't if you pay anymore. I was something like that guy's name is funny, Skage, I'm sure, but I didn't realize that you could look lose the point where you would to look at your face and see that it's hanging off and belt as he's normal in continue about your day. That's crazy. I knew you could affect different parts of your brain that would change things about you, but it's messed up. Laugh. Was it like if somebody like shadows and skulls and it's like expos the thing, like you're being system, we can, because your brains think any part of it could be looks down. Didn't like with an art, but surely a few lose that like wid you're done. But here's a so he's fifty two years old. Imagine he's been like. Let's see, he's done the same routine since he was like twenty. How ingrained, then is that? There he's...

...like, Yep, you get up, you shave, load of dishwasher and off to work, like because like for me, don't get lie, like not not the habits be proud of, but actually just wake up. Got It's a lot of a Piss and then setting the SOFA for fine, it's on my phone. So but the same. He's done all that. I'd probably just be dead looking at and I start getting it in a half of a leg getting up in the morning. facetime in somebody just in case. That's very insensitive for the people that are going to answer that face same you're setting there. I said he's hanging off because he's just me Feinga save you that point. I'm just future proofing for myself. It did. So he woke up. Me didn't even realize his wife was dead next to him. Now she's alive. She's just she's a heavy sleeper, or so she was with the better seat. Fuck George lying the bed. John was lying the bed. We head. It was severe head and facial trauma. She survived, but lost the left eye and a portion of the skull and her face was left as figured. But he woke up. Don't they realize she's fucked in beds, he's fucked. Don't Sha fuckable for work clad. So, God, do you know? That's good. You hear about that's a lot. Well, like see your girls and stuff that go nuts and just like kill their parents. See, if you woke up and some day was swinging something at the Personne next to you, you'd at least try and row at the way. Wen't you maybe like done it there? You ains like the donkey cone drunk. It's a good game real. That's what gave me your mind that if a visual. That's like Clu. I'm just saying if you've if you process it logically, it makes sense. Know the donkey go. Yes, have you planned something before, or have you done something before? If the video doesn't get released, just for the core, Louis is shrugging with a smart coney's face. Let's be honest. We just started cuts on end of shure are it's the Netflix and where it goes black and wait, we are read foot in front yet. Do we know? So to do know why the kids done this, like was their did they all money? Is Some Day was he made? Oh, it's Day of life insurance, not mental, but I think it's money based on some of the comments. And somebody said something, do look feeling at Uni and they took out like a new life insurance pause and all that stuff. Where was this clock? Country Is America? Has To be America. That it's goings to these guy. We were all thinking it, but just don't like. If you're going to try and kill something and get the life insurance, surely try and slip, like Ay, let me poison or something. No, Marsh's the make it look accidental. Obvious culprit like okay, you so easy. To get right attack. Then I try to get reliefe. Insurance. Need all right, bought made a tongue. Not Going to find that Mark Up Bell Jeck something Nice. I you're not going to find the in direction mark under the tongue, but you have the injection stuff inside. You know. That's I put. You can get stuff that will be at natural. Nobody in Jake but fucking alcohol and make it look alcohol poisoning like a few day like green alcohol. A bunch of times. Those are we are and it. Don't worry. It's better and putting an axe or some of these heed fifty times. Come on, I'm just saying. Not long ago aways being the accused to color. Here at least tands lobby over here we've got a clear professional. Let's be worried about that. Here's an interesting comment. And so the kid a party was on Reddit. He's got a profile. He was abused...

...by a small time podcast. It was the user poo beard. I need to go, guys, so did I do. There's a comment for my guy. Says like he went to school with a boy that doesn't and stuff in it that like a many. Ask Me Anything. Is he named Alex? Just a season anyway. Let's not ruin anymore. That's episode. Should we vote?
