And welcome to the US podcast podcast, where its usually talk about where the founder then on that. This week I'm loose, I'm grant and this week we've got no stephen know what them pretty well, as think. Three of the last four I've been just too ous. Yes, Steven's Beau, if he said he had to have a long, hard think about why he could do this week's episode. It's getting rough link. Soon it's just going to tell them to just a podcast with one of us, your three different podcasts. Just do on things, podcast with just me from the friend OFS podcast expert, US podcast. Anyway, is it going? The wonders, two doors and taters and it's gone well, body, and you know so at all. A lot of a lot of diy at home, which is which is fun entire and Shit, I can't go back to making podcasts and websites APPs. It's good. It's a lot easier. Yeah, for sure. Month about. Yeah, yeah, I'm all right, all right, hanging in there. Yeah, thanks. Going back to me for relievaxed at last. She's thinking lose like listeners. Folk are like pure and it backs or any cool dacks. Maybe fucking think so. I hat I don't really care if that's just dance fiest. It's a podcast I listen to and we heard James English. Yeah, Yescottie, Scotch Guy. Yeah, and I really can see talks like a whole was different. People don't an. He's like all mere focon hospital had the vaccine that have me. It's like sixty percent of at the vaccine and fork set of me who in hospital. It's like I was with to reply and I couldn't be bogged into on twork because it's come energy for it, but it's literally like seeing Ninti percent of people born on UK English. It's just not worth it, like there's just mere people in England. Mate, there's more people vaccinated, of course. Anyway, that's something really annoys me. Like I find myself a lot more lately like feeling a bit bated by all that stuff as well, like wanting to comment. Just feel like why you being an idiot and stuff, and I'm just like like, I definitely won't go into names and stuff, but I just seen some shit on facebook lately and I was so close these comment it's like people like quite close to the family and stuff and it's just like you're just spreading up some bill shit online and I'd like a genuine had to stop myself and my current stances, I don't know if I'll act on it. Is that I'm severely think about just narrowing down the social media I use, because I'm like, the end of the people are allowed their opinions and stuff and if they want a certain spend their time all day like reading into bullshit and sharing billshit. That's fine, but it's like actually stressing me out and I'm like, I just I don't want to scroll through facebook and like get stressed out for nothing else. So a strange place to be living, and right now, hundred percent I'm in the China on comment and stuff or like things. I do what you want, think you're in thoughts, just like I'm the scientist and I can see it's a good think. I'm all science. I kind of see is a bad thing and I'm just gonna, I'm just gonna go what I thinks. Right. Who Want? It's from folk of a platform, the and they're like sharing it is if they're the authority, another focal believes on, because I trust Sandra fo the scheme. I don't know. Yeah, well, I'm seeing your feelingly skimming a generic anyone called Sandra? You Askim me. Yeah, like here, skip skimmy people are...

...fine skimming. And this is the last episode of the theaters probably break up for each friends for life. Spring back. That positive. But again, I think it's easy to get drawn in till this stuff right like, like I swear we all had a conversation quite a way Lego when we started the podcast that we didn't want to like the Zona on cold stuff too much because it's all people were talking about. That you just can't help it, because it's like it's still all there is right now. It's been to happen, but I guess I'm a way don't know. First episode and what best part two months now. So I think public announcement that well, we are slacking a bit on the scheduling and the output. The podcast sowere. Yeah, but no one complains to anybody. That lessons. But that, yeah, was complained. But if you complained at the thirder's podcast or in you a free t shirt with the trailers will go on it. It's pretty cool. So metallic silver reflective. Yeah, so senda a tweet, complain about it and whatever size of t shirt you are. I'm surprised we haven't had like more uptake on that lie, even if it's just something that stumbled across this if if I heard that, but facts, free t shirt. Might not. But even if it's a complaint, you're getting a free t shirt, like it's bad news. Was this hard to give away? We're literally offering tshirts to people that don't like us. Potentially, Alex, you can even have the t shirt if you just tweet us. Buddy, I know we explained that that Resp Alex. that why it's too easy. He can get one just for being it will be still like buzz. Yeah, that's right. I think it's like what's the word when you're like it's like ruised. If he's a if he's the one that comments and get a t shirt, it's a fix. It's too easy. Yeah, fixed, bruise, whatever there. Yes, Steven should be back soon. Star will be good and we've discussed the plants to try and like fix this problem of run random episode. It's we did really good for a while, but it's all right. We are good one with a good schedule and then I think it's when I moved. I think it all went its up and then we felt out, like totally fell out of the river. Wolf. When we're doing it, who's asking to set it open? Yeah, that's it's a collective failure. Yeah, that's nice. Anyway, on that note, should you. But yeah, rusting, we're get rusty. Well, it's not bad and trude. I'll go first. Then let's hope this isn't the shortest episode ever. Imagine, that was just that, just that, ten fifteen minutes of shape. We just speaking and that's that for the sort. We just went to check and give a nice episode. That's what we could have done. HMM. So we high over start a life. Yeah, just before it like leaves my brain as well, like anybody listening, like senders, like suggestions for Fred's and stuff as well, because or comments, questions, whatever, because we always be happy. I can know schaming and that stuff and talk more shit about it. Anyway, my friend in the middle, you know, it was posted on our future Ology. I feel like a lot of my recent threads have been from there. I'm getting suckered into the future. Happens? Posted by user spiritual being eighty nine. Apparently it's quit. A...

...lot of spiritual beings and it's titled Jeff Bezos. Is it BASOS or Bezos? This ussiness bees us, but did you say bows easiness like anyway, Jeff from Amazon, we all know him. You're any like them. Been Jeffers as reportedly funding Alto slabs and you anti aging venture aiming to cheat death, Matt. I think a lot of that's in the title, to be fair. So it doesn't take a signus to work out what this company or doing. But team at researchers basically have already been doing tests. I think they've had like success and like Mason stuff already. It's like reverse aging from them, and the title says aiming to Cheat Death. So that might be like the wider goal of this. But I think generally the key point and probably what's look in the most achievable is that any aging piece of it, and the top comment, be honest, touches on it, seeing like they're surprise. That isn't a big girl push from this from like super wealthy people, celebrities and stuff, because you know they're already mad for like cosmetic surgery and stuff. So why not like pause agent, if you can? Would you? Would you want to look for a few things. I don't know, it's like a hard one, I think. Yes, I'm know, because I do think you would hit a point definitely. Will like kind of honestly. Yeah, exactly, like two hundred tuns of this craft sometimes. Yeah, imagine just some bullshit happens and the world and like like we're talking about all these antivacses and stuff like. What if just somehow those people become like the majority of collective and just a life is run by those sort of decisions and you're just like fuck me, and there's like nothing you can do but about it except just live. So I don't know them. Well, we run a space eventually. Oh yeah, I think with this you need to like put in like measures. When't you feel like that's falling population stuff? That's Mars and the nearly what I want the people, true, just other planets. Yeah, yes, that fixes that problem. Maybe the one step ahead, and that's why they're pretty focused on space travel. Maybe like we need to fix that before we fix the right know, I've got my rocket. Okay, I'm no scipticate space stop me buying. But yeah, as I say that, I think the key thing is any age and right so deep the do you think, like if that was our I'd highly doubt. It's a free offering, right. But if if they said, do you know what you come you get this fucking injection and what it does is like just pauses your agent, like do you think you do it? Like see five grand for a Jack were it right now? Well, I guess that's the thing, isn't it? You would need to pick the age you want to like do it up. So like you could do it see when you're eighteen if you want to like stay kind of that age. Otherwise you could wait till like fairies, fortis whatever. I don't know. I was probably really curious. I'M gonna look like I'm older then, like if I could the probably see you. It will give me a couple of years just to get myself on like peak shape, like whenever I look my best, and then stop. But then, if you do know, it's only aging right, so you could start wealthier lose your health at any point like to. I'm thinking out of you. See, there's a movie and I want to see it's with Justin timberly call time out. It's called something. So netflix time something and you get to twenty five years and this is you get twenty five years, you stop aging and then I can't you have a time...

...or on your arm at the time our starts. So you get a year two, like you got to go work. As you work, you get more time, use time to spend on food and for get robbed for their time and all sorts of stuff like that. But that's really that. They stopped like at twenty five, like they just a great here peek at twenty five and then they just any change. Then I get fire skinny or anything, which really weird because in the movie his mom's or so twenty five year old, but she's actually meant to be feel what was good. I had that picture of my head. That's why I was I was like, let me get in shape first and then. But I feel like an a agent would be a good thing and I'd probably be pretty enticed by that, but like immortality, I don't think I'd be as intaste. So, like I'd happily know that, because if you don't age right, like that's affecting your whole body, something like your kidney's, your liver and all stuff. Yeah, but your liver could still be damaged by you fucking alcohol or whatever. Right, you just that you're not going to age. So as long as you stay healthy, you probably are going to extend your life. Right. It's that that works on. So this I'm going to like. There's a completely ignorancy. I'm not sure. Hope bodies age of never look until their thought over it. Well, is it no like abuse over years, which makes thns the theory, or like just it being used like a hard still but a certain pompy use the pumplover anybody if it does that for ninety years, even if it's no aged or I don't know, know of it confused. I see, that's that's about this kind of unclear to me, but I guess I'm making assumptions here. Then that's just like it would extend your life, but obviously it's not going to prevent you from death, because you could still be a easy piece of shit that smokes and drinks all day and then you're going to just like wreck your organs and stuff, or, you know, it's still freaking get hit by a bus or a million ways to die. And I'm reading here is in there on the articles this one method and being studied by altose lives as whether we programming could teach sales to revert back to their steam cell origins, making them readapt to the skin and give up more youthful appearance. Hmm, I think it's just like pause and how you Lik almost doesn't it more than yeah, you know our benefits in dripping. Yeah, it's very prevent their ankles, but I built for that. YEARE. But now, like I'm so surprised that maybe, as in the background to all these rich people aren't like pushing this, because I'm like, they're the type of people that would want to live forever. Right. All we get money and money and like every really wants to be like the first. What comes after a trillion, because illian probably wants to be the first becasillionaire right to a trillion. But sure, well, we can spend this off like what you just did it. We could spend this off if Stephen was here until like a conspiracy through it. I think it like we can start to ourselves that Jeff and he's met Bill Gates's funding this bills, funding vaccinations of the cover vaccinations. Just a we text of this, see what happens. So also a double vax. Maybe maybe it makes the young for ever. Well, let's take screenshots ourselves now then and then, like cool, check in five years and just see see how relevant Nice. But Stephen would like me saying that. That's me picking up already. Yeah, maybe the conspiracy is right that they've already done this and so, like Jeff beasils and all that, Donald Trump, they've already done it. So they just do that. They be wealthy and they just fake the deaths and like change how they look, because who are maybe that maybe donald trump has too back.

Kay, that's a conspiracy, because right up Stephen Street, chase, Stephen The spey. That's why little win was like supporting them in the in the last election, like he know was. It's too back. Maybe I can best best he's Jeez. Also, the fact that billionaires can be like I'm going to invest in an age to try to cheat death is freaking absurd. The all the things you could spend your money on is a billionaire, all the problems you can solve in the world, and you think I'm single us to look at old. HMM. Do you think it comes from like like this is sick and say this successful aspect of his life? Do you think that's what it is? Because he's probably been like fuck, I have worked hard, of like worked on my life, and now I'm like, fucking money is just not a problem for me anymore. He's like, but you know, I've wasted like not wasted, because you've got all that, but like wasted half my life to fucking achieve that and now I'm like on the decline. So now I want to fucking enjoy my billions and start spending that cash. I don't know was you don't get here joy, feel like, would you? This week's also as on the world hunger. They're also clean water with thanks to me. I really like I think you get a lot of shoot, get a lot of that as a person, I feel like you would. But then it does make me question why, like literally none as far as I'm aware. Like yeah, like Bill Gates has charity and he's done good things, but like literally all these people have enough money to the cure of massive problems in the world and they don't say I'm like, like, what changes when you get so rich, because, like, I don't know. I always say like, and it's Cheesy, I fell on the water. Really hundred mills, even like a hundred meals enough for me. To like like I'll be on happy life as well as like friends family. So I'm like yeah, fucking stick that there at all my family members of get like a hookey each and if not more. If I could do it and all this stuff, and you got a hundred million, you'll give it a hundred kids. Your MOM's at it. I like every single family member. I tell Carey, like all right, all right, every finger in their numbers ain't done the marsh it right. I'm just saying, like that's where my head goes. Yeah. So then I'm like why is that not the case for people who have like nigh on close to trillions and money, I like hundreds of billions and shit like. There must be something that changes that makes them go let's keep it. I bet it's that status of it, like richest person in the world. Don't want to lose that. Well, it was like to like. I guess, though, they're like paper rich and it like the OM companies and stuff. So theny have that in cash. I always wonder how much money did they, like Jeff be does having a bank true imagines like card decline for that coffee pooty here, which soon I was in Stockholm. Second it's a good point in it, but then, you know, there must be like what is the process for somebody that rich, like by crazy amounts of stuff? Then, like I because I guess it. I guess they take a salary and then they get like dividends and bonuses each year. So that's like tops up their bank account. But they must be able to just be like I want to buy that billion dollar yacht, so a billion dollars to transfer that. You know, that's a side of being rich that should have no clue. That probably the best. So work it. I'm just see, like, I don't know, I've no idea. Yeah, they get like yours. You'll get salary and I think, like see you as a company, like they sell stock every year anyways, like a bonus, and they were all the cash and so much and they sell that every single year. This as what like I'll see others in the past and I assume that goes like their back then, like flowing vest and stuff. You'll put it in an aging companies. You must just a bunch. You must have hundreds of millions in yeah,...

...maybe it's not bank, but like maybe as a bank. I don't know. I'm earlier, the black part, or maybe one of those first maybe they just put it all through, like the company you like that come. Maybe don't just like fuck it, but just like you probably get to a point where don't you like yeah, like black cards that you see are like people know who you are, they know how much money you've got. So the probably just like they don't even take money off. You're just going to shop up and you're just like yeah, there you go. Did you see that? That place all right here, this happened and want to see. In London the Guy See, there was like a sody prince and they heard an account like a bit hotail in London, and he kind of walked in just as like a Sony Prince and boss these way through and they put them on their account. And so, like you rinsed it. It was took a Ferri dealership, whatever it was. Our LAMBORGHINI was like, I'm sort of going to a car the way. Okay, sorry, yeah, here's your car, we didn't know you were coming. On he's like, I just decided to come any like flee stant for all that. I think he got caught unarrested. Of the end. The Guy. It's like a random Vlity, but he was like yeah, just pretendally be something else and get on credit, like someday I'll say I don't have money, someone will send you the payment, someone will pay for I don't do that. Don't in something by asking for money. That's why all that. But confidence can take you so far, can't it's like before can walk into like theme parks and Yellow Jackets. Real others like walk anywhere, but as a Sony Prince and to look the next level. Imagine that little just a Ferrari, and the guy just toss agin. He's like yeah, it's kind where about? That's not yeah, as I say, I'm entased by any like I don't mind extend in my life, like see sort of current age ish for an actually well, but yeah, the money's there to like solve weld tonger. So I probably appreciate if somebody pulls a fucking finger and just I don't think anybody on the planet should be stubbed a food like not, not's all. How much beld you guess in this by me, like I'm very curious. Desser an amount somewhere. It's a tempted to see. Like the way I think they had to two hundred and fifty milli already, or that's what invested the company as of no. So, when it was a sick for September, had raised two hundred and seventy million dollars. If that's awesome, gay, if we just stop contribution, maybe, maybe that's what it is. Like he's trying to get to Mars. So maybe it's like if I find something that can like just like cheat death, I can we fly up there and I'm not going to die. Do the other things. Or maybe like I'll start like dying. I'll just JAG myself. I'm I'm cool, and eventually I'll become immune to Mars. I am there se if there in number two, there's also. This will be like a sequence to this, right, like you got you like you want to stop diseases like Al shoers or things that happen when you get old first. Maybe that would maybe this would solve out like outsidersn't that be cool? Like that can add Agian, but you still die a normal death, like eventually. Yeah, isn't that your Elon show to do with the what was the impact? You? You you did a third on it. The new US like isn't that for like Altsheimer's and some other kind of things as well, for both of the same thing in different ways? Maybe there's a lot of this stuff, though, like like the amount of stuff I've read, like who knows which of it's real or it's gonna happen stuff, but like yeah, like cute and I'll saimers, like almost everything is like curable now, you know, like they tchiva thinks like treatable. Man. Yeah, I wouldn't surprise me if cancer all gone well as like sutable at some point, and I know people are still working that. So I kind of like vision of it's like a bit of down the line that soon like nigh on everything scurable, right, and it's just...

...like people just start living like crazy. Life's that hundred fifty years average life to one and two people get cancer blew my mind the other with anyway, apparently it's true. A horrible statistic and, as I wonder, like everybody Shit, or is it both of us and Stevenson, one of the happiest we could think of, like well, I'll singers, I'm assuming came around or became more predative, but prevalent. When people start to live longer and get older. I'm just super the idea. But, like, I wonder if there's other things, like when you get two hundred and ten, those a new thing. That happens hundred, twenty hun like you then start to introduce yeah, potentially, I don't know, because it's like changes in lifestyles as well, and it I feel, like people going to the gym and trying to eat healthier as like on the up right now. But yeah, theybviously everything we've done in the past, like life expectancy's gone out. But like all these diseases and share really more common. So why I live classgow? It was the easiest one. That you can either eat healthy or leave glass go. I chose. I chose leaving. Is that it just being in Glassgow is just shrink sure life expect yeah, we should. We should do a thread on the glass cow effect. Why would not done that? Let's see if that will do that. Literally always have lived there. Should in this thing next episode for the Glass coow effect. It's a special episode. Egg on your face when one of US outlive you in it. For sure it really o care. Probably they maybe a Jack you can get anyway. That just keeps you going dumb. All right, yeah, that's my friend. It's gonna interest. Let me to think about all that Shit. But I was very easy to go down a rabbit hole in and I like that. We give it not for me. Damn well, I'll up what it thought. It was interesting to think about talk about. Know what the Jeff Hasten always money on this rather than maybe he's a don't know, maybe it is some moretunger. I just an again. Well, I don't know. I've seen a lot of headlines about this guy. Not One of them skin about the good things he's doing. So maybe, as I'm a look into that, maybe we're doing at this credit to him. But from yeah, feet people. Yeah, please clean war, please, please. All Right, sure, yeah, right. So my thread is posted on our South Park in this it's a thread and then there's like a couple of south bits to it. It just tickled me and in the title is this remind me of that time Cartman smuggled Casey into South Park. And it's a screen shot. We use article which is New Zealand Corps Arrest Man Enter and lockdown city with large amounts of illicit case. It goes us. Two men have been arrested in New Zealand for those attempted to bring a large amount of illicit case. It's Auckland, were lockdown has forced all fast food out let's to shut their doors. So few questions. One, do you know what's happening in New Zealand? And do you know the South Park Reference? I guess no one knows the answer that. Like I know one New Zealand. Like since the start they've been pretty strict with like lockdown measures and stuff only. But like, as far as I years, like the last things that traveling in and out was still restricted. Like I think you need to like keep yourself up in a hotel for x amount of time. But I thought, like everything beyond that was like fine, there, no, no, the same. Yeah, so I I thought they were good. I thought I thought the exact same. But partner has been a rise in case. He's in in Auckland and a part in New Zealand. And to curb this they...

...closed fast food chains. So this your literacy. A picture. It's like three bargain buckets, five big bags of KFC and ten like large tubs of KFC. Course, law on the front of a police and the reference to South Park is there's an episode we are like a new law came at the place that closed doing all KFC's and Colorado and Cartman is obviously a big fan of KFC and decided to start like a black market selling, like smuggled KFC to everybody. There was like a whole thing about with this an old friend chickens. What what I want to know is, a that I can see the article, obviously that you sent me in the picture like that police officer almost have been so proud of it like that as well, like just the way that's all laid out on the police car, or is it just being like photo shopped on that? No, I think I was before we there's a part of this doesn't mention, though, and it's that the police that SIS probably this suspicious vehicle traveling over the borders and when they opened up they also a hundred dozen dollars for a cash in the car, which just kind of seen the screen shot. So and there were no in gang members, so I assume there were some job and just also had KFC as part of that. Yeah, how funny is that, though, that they've chose to like put the KFC on the cars unsteady, like this hundred K that they've also ceased, which is probably a better achievement if it's an obvious see trafficking drugs. Maybe have a good explosion. Why that that money? But the KC they did sease because they were not allowed that part. So so what? Like Auckland is locked down for fast food, basically. So somebody outside of theirs tried to bring KFC and yeah, like what's the distance between whatever this was in Auckland? Because, like, I don't want no cold KFC, like where you bringing this from? Like just deep is bad enough, but always forever getting soggy fries and stuff. Like let's cool and open to the next bigs big place. I can see Howling Auckland to Hamilton. Just don't do Hamilton like Glasgow, Scotland area. There's a long way. I Want Zealand. I'm trying. I don't want to have to like the next big city. Yes, that's that's a pointless journey. Then it couldn't have been hang one. You could. He's gonna want a KFC that's cooked an hour and a half ago. Would you think the care use that you buy is setting there already? Suppose I can't be there, for surely the churn the food out fast on that. It was like a closing restaurant and these guys were right with the close will. We'll take it from this left and then we'll try to sell it in the street. What do you think happened as well? So the police obviously sees this and think they just went then it pick. I think event fucking eat that. I think they put it on the front like Parus. It take a four, take a photo, beflos is all gone. They don't gain because of what other police started behind them. So assume this is like back at the station. They are digging into that for sure. So well, don't waste it. Waste not what it's got. Pictures like doing this next to the been like pretending a poor the chicken and stuff is a fuck that I'm sure round for free today, I'm sure. So I've got they're like sniffing the groovy and stuff's probably still LASTFC gravies. So good to be fair, and it's peak. You think...

...you would did the like see that your local area like shut down all fast food? You think you'd start getting that craven really fuck if I'm gonna need to like try drive the car out or pick something up or get somebody to bring in. Yeah, just make do for like. Okay, I'm not that desperate. Fan both like you can buy junk food anywhere. Then you fast with like. You can buy rush lost my drafe Burgers if you really want a sixty second borger. Yeah, true, I think I'm all they know, as we'll do like you see, it's like called the big statch. It's basically like a my craveable worker. That's like a big match. Yeah, I tried it as at a right, all right, it's decent. Bill Order too. Fart off, like we'll be all order the AULD and delivery the nights books. Long do you think you need to go without fast food then, before that gets like super tempting? What's it really go to take? A Indian, Indian checks. Yeah, look like a good India, a really good curry pizza. Se say are locked. They all fast food near use like lock down and you went a little travel out if like your area for three months. You think you're still yeah, curry him and then he like McDonalds. Are Get when I'm drunk, randomly like when I'm in so like from the earth the really get my dogs. Could to kiss you something that could also, I guess you a year and yet on you've had no takeaway. So I'll just be like, fucking I'm gonna feel great. It's amazing. Yeah, true, Ben, if it's hugely away in the Cravens, you know my outlove loose line. Yeah, you left Glasgow anyway the show day. Fair enough. I don't know your fast food. I don't actually like. I probably have done more lately than I did filly quite a while, to be honest, during lockdown. So like that, I'm quite good at like just caught and stuff out if I really want to. You know, soon I probably get craven's more for like a bar chocolate or something, if I've not had it and I've still be able to get that. So I think I'd be sound just I probably just eat more shit, but just bought chocolate, yeah, which also Jaffa Kicks, a sure thing. Yeah, Jeff Kicks. Don't just me fair. No, I think I'm seeing, like I think I can cut stuff it when I want to. I tried that. Mr Bea sporger. We spoke, but I think for the week was pretty good. Right. I enjoyed that, like I like. I'll try things like that, but like stuff that, like I do, like a good burger and stuff that's kind of my go to for take. It is actually as like a good burger place now and like babys of delivery. Could be the meat for it. If I'm in the movie for like Red Meat, and I kind of always my chicken garlanding else. I don't know want it is about. It just like a Bacon Cheese Burger, barbecue sauce, something about it's just it's right. What was on the Mr Be spurgerling, because I've seen like quite a lot of like mixed pictures for it as well. We're like some look like really good and somewhat a bit like really nice snack fan for really were good at the pattern. Packaging was the main thing, I think, really cool. It's a proper Mr Beast like look cartoons or Bouge, and with the black and stuff...

...on it. I went for I want to see not the Carl, the Chandler. I was like the plane Burger because I'm really fussy with what's on it. HMM, like the Mr Beasburger which during that Houd was a like toomuch sauce or Ketchup mustards, tomato salad, onion, like let something like just all the workers stuff, and that's pretty gool. You said it's like so obviously doesn't have like hundreds of restaurants everywhere. It's just like he came up with a recipe, like gave the packaging and recipe to is like selling restaurants to make from right. Yeah, it's like a it's just a season, like Smash Burger. It seems to be quite consistent and you get like Mr be s fries and stuff which are pretty good. So I'm going to assume it's like franchise, doubt and it gets away's the recipe, here's the ingredients. Smash the Borger like this, put it in this box and seizing the fries with this, like gause a table chips to me. So it seems to be any but I'm not so sure, like how it all works. But it's quite a weird dynamics. There isn't because it's like franchising, but just for food rather than like restaurants, almost like the opposite. We around in it m most places would like by the name of a restaurant because it's already popular where's people are using him to like sell burghers. But like what happens, though, if like places start selling has burger and like nobody wants to buy theirs? Did they just like adapt and just be like, okay, I'm Anass to be strush restaurant now? Well, I guess that's kind of why they would do is like maybe, like, maybe they're not as well known, but there's not like you have no idea where it comes from, unless you like look up the address and find out what's actually there. To the restaurant that I got these from still like still has their own menu of their own stuff, and they just also have Mr be stuff. It's to be spurgers. Yeah, there's like a note website. It's like adverstib be s first to your existing kitchen, where virtual brand or from some kind of concept that you can run alongside different else, which is, which is pretty mad. But how hard is it to be like accepted as a restaurant because I want to like do it and then click that link in the website just to get like the recipe and I'll just make it home for myself not actually sell any you'll believe your output shit you sell like one every month for safe yeah, always got to one a day. A really good I don't try it. Apply and see Mr be spurgercom Ford. So I saying D up rustaurant. Yeah, immediately after you told me that, look because I like I did see the hype when it first started. Yeah, after you said that, like I did look for Mr be spurger in Glasgow, but I can't fin anywhere that was doing up here. All right, they must just be choosing like kind of capital cities and stuff to start with, and try Edinburgh to be fair. But yeah, I'd see some like mixed sort of reviews for it and some of them just look shocking and some people are like are we didn't get like the MSIEST packaging either. So I'm like, so are some restaurants also lying about providing a Mr Be spurger and just like going, I got come get your Burger and then you just get shit. That's all right, I mean, I wasn't eybody could call the Burger Mster we spurger and that's a good I wonder what's stopping on there. I should not get sup pretty quickly, but just another revenue stream for this guy, Thoughn it like, is it is it really so out me from wrong? But the money he makes from this is for his charity, which is all for food banks in North Carolina. I think it's all. It's for homeless, because I a homeless charity and I believe the profits good this Goo to that. But I think it's for him. True. Yah, I'm...

...pretty much everything he does do. Isn't it as like to feel like what he does already? I give away money, give away stuff to people. I was actually say that that there's probably more chance that we will see like Mr Beascure littld tonguer than like Je Bezos, and he doesn't make anywhere near as much money as these guys. Like how much you play, Mr Beas? Next work you were fifty million. Really still such a strange concept to me, though, that like it's possible to make a youtube video and be like I'm gonna give ten gay to random homeless person, and then you get all these views and you make like k from and you go, I'm gonna give away ten K to this person. It's just like just becomes like so self sustainable, if that's right. Word works during to like just give the money are in. It's like it's no expense to you at all. I mean makes like or he gets like sixteen million views and a video don't either. He gets insane numbers. He must have been making so much money that it must be profitable. Sixty million views get she like on Youtube like money life. Google it just now. An appartly sixty million views as a quarter a million dollars. So if he makes a quote a billion for her video, right, that cats showing knock. Let's be right. Because like, but then if you watch his videos, like he doesn't give away that amount, like every video does. He true already does do stuff like it does videos all the time. Then you know it's just gonna see, like I just sits like search Ra him and the top pit was like I sold my house for one dollar, but that could be like a house that costs them like to Hunky. Right. Yeah, he's still doing that and he's getting like two hundred and fifty back on the video he's got. So it's also it's like Mr Bease, Mr Be Scheming, Mr Beast reacts to be shorts. These all the merge thaty sales. He's got these burgers crazy and he does like a video every we could a couple of weeks. My wild such like a weird time that we live in the mother. Also, it's spawnsor money, right, like you always says, golmost of what, honey, it must be him beer money to that sleep the discount thing in it. Yeah, and stuff you can sign up honey at. How did that calm for slash of its shoutouts, honey, honey, brows extension. That's wild. Yeah, it's like, like we say, they like good on the guy for like bullshit. So it's accidentally played one of those videos and yeah, fair play. It's a guy for like given so much back from because it is like you do get a lot of people, we make, spoke about this before as well, like who become very self entitled, and it's like that, you know, these streamers and content creators and stuffing, that you literally get paid fair enough. It may not become a hobby anymore, but like, for me, if I got paid to play games, like I'd be over the moon with that shit turning. Or some people get so self entitled by like getting up to about not getting the right amount views and stuff. It's like you get paid to like do something you love, which is like so much more and other people. So the fact he's doing this stuff is like it's pretty, I don't know, like fair play. The guys I love to see must to be so well songer. And then all the reviews tacks nighty percent crazy, crazy, all right, man. And so the still bit, the New Zealand cafc Oh, yeah, I mean I just I don't think locking down fast food is really going to have an effect. So I can see why people over there getting a bit annoyed about...

...that stuff. But up forts for like the whole I don't know, but it seems a bit stupid. Done it. I am I just have to be out of time for a start, because you just get terrible fast with it's just like it because it was it was literally a sopworker or something like. It was the exact same thing of like folks smuggling and maybe there's a bit like drug sort of thing, but like like involved with while they were smuggling it, really, but there was yet smuggling of KC. I would not like this really be the weird stuff that smaller than all the time that it's ban Yus ike band, like the alcohol use too. Bands back in the inner folkard run moonshine machins were run, alcohol at the cities and drugs KC some weird take. All right, I'll up. Put it up it. Did you put it? I avoid it. I didn't. You talking to that? They all we want. Whatever he said. It was good. There's enough to threads two books. Nice. Well, cool. I just can say it's good to then our episode again. So hopefully we can maintain a put for apart from like instagram dams or twitter discord, it's like all the thing we really CITA and chat properly. So it's could see saying a fellow friend of Stephen Treat me back. Yeah, let's not put any but I don't want to say that. If he ends up not come back for the ex episode, maybe he's just like chopped it and not found the wants to tell agit could it just loves us. So funny. You are here, so chat shit about you.
