PODCAST podcast. Hello and welcome to the threaders podcast podcast. Three meets meet up and talk about what they found on the Internet. This week, I'm grant, I'm Stephen and I'm loose and, as always, for the third time, because we've messed us up a little bit. How are you, lads? Stephen with it upbeat energy. Go. Yeah, I know you go. I'm fantastic. Yeah, I'm good. Feeling need feeling good. All right, really good. Nice. Now that I know how youse are, I thought we do something a little bit different to start this episode off. It is the maddest thing that I've seen on it's just a maddest thing I've seen and sometimes that I feared as a kid and I feel like we've asked like what a weird fears or something you've had as a kid before. So what? I seen this on Reddit. I thought save this for the podcast and we will watch this together. So can you see my just? Can you see the yeah, yeah, you see my whole screen of the TUB. I mean, like how does I can see the time? I can see like right, we're going to talk people through this then. So if you're know, if you just listen to this, you can follow us at the threaders on any social media and we'll clip this, will post this. This clipops. You can also watch it with us, but I want to get your reactions. So this is a British tourist filmed a monitor lizard coming out of his herd toilet in Thailand. Madest thing. Now US really for this. No, imagine setting having a shake. You looked in darmy. It looks like a shade and reverse imagine. What can I toilet gorment? You're an arshole. No Way, pops, is we heat. It goes realistically right. What is your reaction in thats happening to you? Oh, it's his house. Now by I've gone, I mean if it's anything other than like jumping off at running away, then I'm sorry, but you've probably got a weird fish. I think you start using the poty again. I don't think you thrust a whole anyway. So we no army. Nah, that is some you'll sing. God. No, for me. See you see the hangers at all of it enough shape. That is I took a Robert. See you still shocked about house? See if you flashed out, the anchor would just look make it. I am Gren Russia. I don't know. I would never be there again to fit it now. I probably shot at all, like we wouldn't be recalled in it. I I'd shut it at a brick on it. I sell teep that thing doing and I'd move in it for country, I think. Just to be clear, it literally is a lizard coming from all that toilet out to the toilet bowl. Just for people listening, what do I just be curious, like who do you think that would go? If, like, somebody was on that toilet? You think the lizard come out and just think it's a blood of cave, like let's see if I can get out there and get out. Oh my God, stink Stumma me. But see, see the thing where as is well right, some day probably was setting on it all, because to get your phone and start recording that, there's some suspicion. Now that's something's going on. The way. Would you be aner? Otherwise, that was things that's planted in someone's someone's went put us in at all. It will be funny. I don't no gun anywhere or like they've genuinely like I'm sure I just seen something film it and as they started filming the things came back. They've been at the toilet for forty minutes. I can't he get rid of the shape smell. It just moved. Shame to you. There was a comment there that I just up bolted on the screen. If you see here, it says, I just need to check your apple, sir. It's make Tyson. Oh Ah, so that was my we different bit to start this podcast because I fool that was. I had a fear as a kid that someone's got a comment like no, I fear that when they got the tallet. But always imagined like what if, like you don't know what's going to come out with their sewers. Probably watched out too much Ninja tottles or something. But for that be a funny way you start. At you, and if you want to see that video, fees followers at the threaders everywhere, we'll post it. See. It was always spiders. I was scared. Theyre like on thet all at seat. So after under that...

...crawl it. I said totally a rational fear of never seen heart and my life. But at me hard. I could time. If it has happened, just actually save me everything. We money, spider, not me. No jets and that's mad. That's I wouldn't class it that nightmare. It wasn't that scary, but it wasn't nice. And it would be scary if it was you. It was harm that would be that's not happened in my dream, but obviously we just recently moved and stuff. But in the stream wherever we moved to, had like a loft and I was like I need to go there and do some work, and don't know why, but up in the loft there was like trees, spruit in everywhere and a big boulder and read in the side of boulder was like this great green spider like it it was man. I said, though, like I'm thenking on like size and me. So I don't massive is subjective here, big spot, almost spider. That was round down, like telling everybody, telling Kelly, and that like fucking massive spider up there, like what, why are we taking this house? Like we can't live here, and everybody's like that's fine. I was just notice, no, fine, we've got a spider. It's like biggerling me living in the off like we kind of just put up. Let's go something. Just go do with that and a monthful tool. Let's put the pill get biggest, get the line in paper on them. We'll do that in the summer. But I was never very nice dream anyway. Me that bare form means something, something, but the immunity. You need to look man it up that. I don't like giant spiders. I mean it was grown on a giant rock with trees. Are Not and you're lost. I don't know what it seems you're symbolic. HMM, I don't know. It one of those websites that give you like the meeting gun of your dreams? Yeah, or any you scared the spiders? Yeah, I see, I don't think I am, until there's in there and then I'll go George, I see us, but I'm not scared. It's just I just didn't want it to crawl on me. I don't like hate so much. Stain. He grew up the day. Get the spider for that. It's a really move. I too quick, although they like a lot of things like we mace and and whatnot, lizards as well. I'm just not a delicating that stuff. I like. That sots Nice of coming up it at all, but that sounds of Fuy. All right, cool, no, I've got our fears at the way. Should we jump in the first episode? First episode? NOPE, first thread. Anyway, this is a reboot podcast. Surprise, Reyb. Two years like how many? This probably mass mistakes that I've made. Dinner an episode? Yeah, shall we? So my thread, which I thought was quite interesting, was posted on ask me anything three days ago by zeal UK and it says I am a white English man in his forties who works for an eight hundred year old Samurai clan in Japan. Ask Me Anything says ye had. My Name is Alex Bradshaw and I've been living and working in Kagoshima, Japan for the last sixteen years. I worked for the eight hundred year old Shimadzu family, former diame you. I should have practiced this of this at summer satsuma domain, at the estate and Gardens in Seann Yan, which is also a world horriage. Say I've practiced a four hundred old, four hundred year old style or swordsmanship unique to this part of Japan, and have even been privileged enough to demonstrate for the current emperor of Japan. Ask Me Anything, then you post some proof and post some post some link to an interview. They he's done it's well, just about like what what he what he does there. Basically, his job news like a head of marketing, like deals with all the online stuff for this the Samuri clan. But when he moved there, he practiced for like every day for ten years and being a Samurai and I thought that was the coolest job of the week. I was gonna say that is definitely up there with best job in the world, and especially if you go there just like yeah, I'm gonna practice this shit and then you're run in Japan where clan? That's very cool. Let's three month you said it. He went there and he went to h's an. It's in the southern part of Japan with there's not like a whole bunch of tourism and stuff, and this is like the main or this is one of the main things that like the place is known for. And he went in an an, he met the the person there, and he says like he's I got doneally speak Japanese. So he was trying to communicate with this person and he knew like the obscure word for the for the fighting other type of training, and the guy to under him...

...was like how the fuck do you not know where I see go upstairs, but you know, this world for this like trading thing, the guys, I call us, what too, I'm here for. He's like the dead, really, like they thought it was yes, that washer intentions, and he said, I'm going to come here for like a year and learn at the gap it. You'll never, you know, not learnough of the year. You know, eleven and five years and eleven, ten years. You need to like live this if you want to do it. And it didn't really think he would be showed up every day for ten years. It's like a news sort of accepted and your runs, like the digital marketing and all the online sides for them like mad. It's mad. It is amazing. It says like for the last sixteen years, some like the still time for one or all of us to do this. I've got the hell you go like that, Sammurai Pony, I was just thinking. You said he's like head of market, and I so, how do you go from like wielding blades being killed as fuck to like are you can do market? It's I don't know, eiver. It was spoke about the video. I think it's like people. It was like some interview, but some like people in Japan, has off like some youtube channel that the interviews with people, and I wonder if it was just maybe that was his background, like university in the UK or something. HMM, it was something to do with market or maybe it's because he's English speaking. In like the they're trying to like promote tourism and stuff and they're trying to get there, trying to reach like a wider audience. Maybe just can naturally fell on his lap. I don't actually know. I don't know if that was asked and the questions wait. You just say talking aup. It could probably be something Fi's past life and you see an opportunity get away. They reach it's any hello, you old clan, and obviously Japan's getting mad in matter, interested in that Weste on thing. So maybe it's a chance to get where still as at a they're good stuff again. No, well, I thinking no. Put my little skeptics heart on as always. You said it's like a rural area, maybe trying to build tourism. This whole thing sounds like something out a story. You just showed up. He got laughed at by the Clian, like how do you know that? You're never going to do this, you can never make this and then becomes this like Samurai and he's like pill as fuck, like that's kind of something a TV show, a film in it, and now he see you can come and do it too. See In gradated Tokay Yo. But until we got it it was been marking and a thought. I was like that's left really equick talented and call them until I go. Let it market. So either these stories have got be based on something in it, like someone's probably done that before. So Oh, yeah, for sure, but I'm just saying that's that in itself is pretty good marketing. So if you did fair way to I mean true, seems to be proof here enough, not looked up, but does also say they've got a podcast. Small talk to your pans. So I feel free to listen to people. Yes, I think that's not more than ours. I think that's what he was in a view. Don't I think I was like the one on one, like how did you get into this? What do you do dat day, stuff like that. The first question the Amydal was like true, reddit fashion would eat hundred year olds, even talk about which he replied. The old days, of course. And now the younger generation or a bunch of work shy snowflakes. Funny for me to be feel that he showed up for every day for ten years. He can, he can call people walk try, let's be honest. Yeah, to be fair, that's quite a shift. Something asked up what is your average workday, and says depends really. My main job at singing and I shore really like looked up how to see this apologize for which are the pronunciation? Most people arriving and seven thirty eight clean up the grounds of the office. They're like a Moren a meeting to kick the off to a lot of work at his desk on on websites, ticket in digital marketing. They's wo go out and arrange and oversee video shoots, media relations, meet tourism stakeholders, all this stuff. They got a lot of business trips to different regions of Japan to advise on their tourism content, which is quite mad. They have lunch at their desk often, a bend to my wife has made me don't really take a lunch break. Work until seven PM and head home or go training after that. When we're super busy, we working till nine pm or later, which is normal managers like me don't get paid over time, by the way. So I think it's like proper. You touching this a little bit. Where like the culture starting to change a little bit in Japan, but it's very much like you work. Could you work hard for long hours, like you should be the first one they're in, the last one to leave. I even see and even if you're know the hard this walker, your mare likely be promoted. A few are their longer. So if I'm sat and the office finished my walk at sex but I'm still there like ten, I'm more likely beep multi than somebody who's walking harder than me but finishing quacker. Seeing. That's why it's for...

...me. I'm just that's mental. What they say is a few day actually want to go live and walk in Japan, Wat for our company, that is in a Japanese because they can. A salary man like style doesn't exist that, but it's passing to be changing. This guy did something called cap on. It's like the blood OAF, so you basically cut the four finger on one's left hand and then basically smeed it on like an OAF. To basically be like I will be like dedicate my life to cloan. You see, this isn't so you do like you rate in Japanese, like you're to like brush and do other brushtrokes and right it yourself. And like on one side it's like all the things you will do. So like I'll train every day, I can commit to this climb, the goal, all those thing. It goes into the video a little bit. And another other side it's like what happens if you didn't, if you didner do it? And then you say that with your blood at the bottom, which I thought was was quite mad. So he just gets to write the seed of what he's gonna do, I take it. Doesn't get to write the state of like what you mean. He probably has to rate it, but it's like it's told probably what to write. If I don't do this, I go home. That's nuts. And Yeah, if you skid picklock like something like that to like like go somewhere, master, would you think you guys would pick? I'd love to be among in the world and drink cheat till the it's because to drink cheese, drink t'LD like I'd loot, like I think, like just disconnect, gone up in the hills, just meditate and I think. I think that, but I'd like to that young's just like is a thing today for I don't know, a month, a week, a weekend, getting shorter than I think of it. I think that the quite cool together like and disconnect and just just sitting, like I the ritual of making tea and like being very deliberate about whatever you're doing. Good. I think just sounds. Are you thinking like a Buddhist monk. It's something that. Have you seen some of the stuff that they need to go through? They get look beat another would do. That's and now what like a retreat? I think we can say is you see, I could pickle my job. Going hold at a week long spin will be just a break, all right, but I think I just want to do something like this guy's done. That really interest me. And again, probably something like a Boud this monk. But wait, maybe about the city, the Vastians that they take is real. But I'll be up for that, because people seem to come at all. Say you don't lightened. So was this guy used to watch on youtube who he's an ex monk. He's put back in Germany and I don't know, but it put up with a fuck bank. It was eight years and he says that the meditation or not, still really helps on me. I stay just to kildnick up, the actual wife, stale animal. That's fair, R loise. I got just go to like Compton, become a wrapper. Fair your fit of comped in I classic Mat. You could be yeah, steer and I'll please, please, make a parody straight up Melton and it's like fuck the young team, fuck the backing boys. These look at backup Carey. Have a backup career. I think I'd like to be if like money, like a realistic backup career. I let's be a blood Baker, like driving room on motorbikes already, like taking lungs and hearts to kids in different hospitals. I think that ball mad. I know I but the term for that was really am organ thief. I am Baker Gang stealing blood. I'm more telling it to keeping lost too much. I think I like that be mad, like like actually doing something positive but also having a lot but fun, driving a more bike really fast. I'll be ideal because I would know about please Baker, because I wouldn't really want to rest anybody. Why? Because me spoked in a day stuff that's that bad. I just arrest certain people just if it didn't like the way they looked. There's a culture that in America. I don't know if you'll see. You know, he's tell minute right about now. I think that's just a police I actually that's true. Lose what what do you know? Like the look a folk, you know, just somethings like I'm not telling like a color thing or anything like that. You know, sometimes you just get that Vabe off people jamming like, you know, like q skippers. Not, but fuck you, awesome Baker. You to the back of the Qu exactly like what you're...

...gonna be. I put the sizens and that just to skip like you, greggs Readley. It's not formularis please. I've you seen that still game episode where the like I get their painch in the post office and the pretticular of the pretends to have a heart attacks to see a pretty runs to front. The Q goes. Oh, I'm fine, sorry, because that's funny. Yeah, it's simple. Don't know. Backup, could you though? I think my backup CADEA would be too difficult, because I always wanted to be like a forensic scientist something. If I wasn't doing what I was doing. I'd probably want to do that. We've got ideas of other stuff to do, but that would be the backup. Nice. It's probably a lot work. They used to work. CUSIS A kid. M I probably did. I thought it was so cool. Let's SI. Yeah, I got that good detective, bit less good. We like that actually run around catching people. So so what part would you get? It? That the whole job about? He's at the cream scene, he's looking at it. Just hangs you shit like you says catch something. I'm not chasing them, I'm just like fun finger prints. I give him. WHO's there? I'm the one like this is because the Catcho got this, it's it got the creame scene. You're doing what I like assassin, like the direction of the blood squatters. So it's like definitely wasn't a stab. That's like that's like an exit window there. I mean that's definitely some day it's been clubbed with. I'm up see fair fair as interesting. I'd like to look like a New York detective. will be cool. I New York protective would be a cool one. No, detective and like still raw looks the big apple somethings took a shade on my desk. Who is it's? That's so you guys. It's a junk is, I think the old twiny music playing. And start with the news people looking at everybody. See if you went over there and became like a big Time Corp, if you will. Think you'd like put on a fake accent, but do you think you'd like double down on the Scottish? The Scottish accent to pay? Americans are weird. Don't really like it. But then, well, I think you doubled down being score Scottish. We got like the friendly Scottish and you've got the aggressive Scottish. m I think you could have change. It depends you're talking to pends like what you're trying to get them. I well, how you going to put on the day? Who My shaken doing today? I'd like to be a spy, but would near you how you going about doing that? It's probably a terrible thing to also put in the world because we would never get hired for it, but I'll never you're already all one. You're res a straight fact. Nice about drain the podcast, but I thought you had our Russian look up at you you know, the seven hundred. I'm still gonna nail the intro to the podcast. The starting to suspect me. M One of my favorite PODCASTS, Haist podcast. I spoke about a bunch of times. They quit two hundred episodes and one of my things, like one of my things if, when they first mentioned this at this did it like nine five is ord were given up after two hundred were done. One of my things things were I bet you they've pulled off a heist and they've been pretending to be like they've done this podcast or they learned so much that they've then pulled out the heist and got going at hiding it terms that they'd actually pitched that idea to Netflix for their podcast, that like they were going to be bighisters and they'd learned for their podcast and they were kind of like hiding and plain sight by by being like the reports for all these heighs that were happening in the world. But I think they actually just have other jobs to do. gave up, right. So so they did. They sided to say that they would actually going to the ASS. So they try the patch to Netflix. They they are right. They never got funding for it, but like I'd thought. I bet they's done like a Haist and that's them like going in hiding, like they've learned so much for the in two hundred Haistes put onns it. They just they just got this if they just gave up. That's what I've been. I've going to Haist Netflix, steal all the episodes them. It's been everything. Still the money and deliver. No show would have been easier, but I still the episodes. Masters talking about grunt being like a...

...aspire sleeper agent here and I just try something. Longing, rusted, seventeen daybreak funness. Naine, the name, homecoming, one free car, worked man. What's got them? We're talking. Yes, it's just for every one, for business. Interesting. Can you get good at this podcast, please? Your number one mission Flam the egg mission, field story. I bought a bought another one. He's another shoe. How funny would that be? For a joke about this and like dance pretend that and then Stephen just starts freaking twitching and I can you see him like pulling an n m fourteen as its Pillowcq has been hacked. These figured it fun times. Mad. Anyway, I did. I need to show out that I did get that from a read it. Fred say you, if you are a Russian sleeper agent, watch string of words would activate you. I was wont I look like you're reading for something. I was like a see, just looking at sayd winging. That's all what I called. I figured I'm going giggle. How to activate a Russian sleeper agent. It's the first thing that popped up. I read it for read so, yeah, but would you be right, ffter, this episode, don't you see a string our Russian sleeper agents just trigger and in the Water Watch? Oh yeah, imaginarily for listeners, just like you know how it tells this kind of regions, of WHO's listening the most. It just starts blowing up and it's like all Russian listeners, if there is, if there's any Russian listeners, Lewis and Stephen are a bunch of switch kids. So yeah, it's all that I can see Russian such also, if there is a bunch of Russian listeners. And please don't go to war with us. I mean it's all right, you kisses, I'll standing shoulder a shoulder were they don't but but baby, not want the way, I don't think. Nah, I don't know, but I will get involved. Six hundred year old, eight hundred year old summaries, stone votes, but that could get me a young I'm put watch as well. We are. Yeah, I look for that. That's a cool ast job. Well, no, it's not. It's not a cool ass job. It's a cool ass experience, cool industry to have. Like, I mean the joke still pretty cool marketing for that. That that look. Can I climb? All it takes is one bad tweet to get canceled. Man, you don't want to get the stung. Imagine, imagine being a guy. It canceled this Amada eat hundred years. This has lived on. fucking done, they aren't we? You recording is like their lost guy doing evoluit it at we accept did you? We brought yea single handy playing ruined this Samurai Lewis. The SAS SADMINS tweet for the wrong account. That's US fucked. Quick carry carry, man, all right, until the next, the next. So I was a short, a few sticking with a Valentine's fream. I work this episode, so I just jump. Don't you a different thread through I was gone. So mine is everybody at random one. I'm glad because I forgot that they can I ruin your friend and or was your friend? Just take always, if you can remember. I'm saving ACU tld. Yeah, I'm saving it because I'm so asti why I use it. It's a funny one. When you play use it. Don't you want your we got silks, Louis, is yours? Valentine's filmed? NOPE, not. Let's let's say it could be. Maybe we can. Let's save the Fou things. Feed once for the next episode and will do a post about and times the episode. The shop was some funny stories. I'm ready by then. So so back you now. It's fine. So obviously it's some small laptop screens broke. I'm having about a trouble reading for the screen. So if I need about assassin, so caught, so men's is what I impressive things are people id Orticli proud of posted by stop passing cruelty. I think that is something con format and it's an ask. That's a passing through. It is created all write one. Oh that's quick. People are idiotically proud of retweeting Elon Musk's thoughts and thinking they're smart. M Louis, no not...

...one bullshit, but I don't remember that. It was a lot of folker like to that really clever. Thinking about Yesterma. You didn't just kid something like that. It whatever. It like just like dumb shit. You like the guy's just like a twitch move, like what the fuck? Yeah, people seem really like impressed with her. You get a retweets them, you get a lot on twitter and even like tick tock and all that stuff. It's like like you'll see something, you a go that's funny, and people just like literally copy paste that and do it with their face and it's just like it wasn't funny this time. So why do that? Yeah, so, Steven. No, no, it's fine. It's just a jumping top of me. Me, you're one like some things can sound like really intelligent when you did it as well, but when you actually think about what they want to say, it's it's not that a smart IRA. It's like, come on, but just read that. Know about Mel because you can string once together, but doesn't it all which mean it sh I could think to shy. Have you got any of those? Not, if it's up my head. No, but I did. You see you one that I totally agree with and that's just like you know these people who just like unnecessarily live wage to aage just to like have like a really expensive car. MMM, it's like people like minimum wage and they're being like six hundred and fifty a month for like a high end fucking whatever, just like. But they just drive around like reven it and you get like some lights like yeah, you're an idiot. Yeah, I like that. Maybe looking that I'm chist at all. I'm so SOS man and I always think I hope you own your whost if you've already bought that car, because you are fun. I like. You're never got a good look at like a mortgage if you've got a Hoos, sorry, a stupid car that you're paired up. Yeah, like, here's an example of it. Right, I found this was the stupid and I guess you know what then the day life's Goin of short and it's sometimes I still don't know if that's what you get happiness out of. I guess then fair enough, but you just come across a bit stupid. It's a boy enough, but a figured idiot doesn't mean my opinions right. It's just kind of thing I remember, like friend of a friend or something way back. I can't remember who, but basically they they had actually like an alpaying job somewhat. They're still fairly young and hads like just done nothing but save since started working and still lived like parents and all that stuff, and decided to basically spend everything in the savings on getting like a like, not even like one of the fucking cool ass like cars, like Mescedes or whatever it was. It's just like the little tiny hatchback model but like got all the MoD cons and spent basically K on a car. It's like you could have had like your own house. You could have had a nice car as well as your own house and you could have had all that like twenty one. It's just like me see even look right there, since it was like you see, is about fifty grand me. That's a healthy deposit on a house, so you know you're going to bring a mortgage for straight then there don't know exactly. By twenty five you could have had like another appropriated. I can rent them out, set for a life madness. Guess he was happy to get you read decals and it crashed and died. I never rip. Not Fit like it's like for enough. What ever brings you happiness. I had cars on finance man's stupid and then that I couldn't afford. But I did finance cars before for our all my house, but I think I grew to it and learned and then went back to buying like four hundred point cards I could actually afford. Yeah, exactly. It's just like wasted money at some point. But yeah, some people just take it as feels. That feels irreversible, like soon as you drove that off the law, it's worth thirty. Kay, it's just you've just lost twenty ground. You must feel that Israela that as soon as you did you must be all that less. That's what is that mistake? Oh yeah, especially cars, in car, unless it's like a classic, especially nowadays, like everybody wants to the newest model join. So, like you said, not only does it decrease in value, people like for five years from there, like nobody's going to be like I want that, like really cool my series for five years ago when I could get the brand new on. Anyway, I've gotten those near as after grant the spent. I've got another unimpressive thing that people idiotically proud of. I thought I'd better say it before when I used to geting we podcast, we hit a hundred, with a hundred twenty listeners, which is a yeah, last cool. It's actually, I think, on oppressive to...

...everybody else, but I thought I was proud of that. Do you know what use? That's something we started for doing. Truely, I know all the years of Yeld that on on twitter. People started from the bottom. That we're here nicely. UNIMPRESSIVE. I'm impressed. I'm impressed. Hey, I guess that's like a whole side to spread, though, isn't it's a unimpressive is totally subjective in itself, like that is what people are through day. Your proud? HMM, don't need to be. I guess a lot of unimpressive things that people people are put it all is like money. Really it does well, because I can think of cassinos that everybody's like superly, yes, fine, I'm so glad that. I want and when you got casino, but it's like yeah, you also spent to our could you didn't get that much. I'm really hating Alex it up, unless you're Dake, obviously, who wins like half a million dollars, and I realize spin, but don't know much she's put on it. The one if he only shows you the highlights. True, that was mad. We've wanted some money because you know those we are cracking night ones. But again, no idea how much we actually spent to win that, but it felt it. With a lot more money they will be. We definitely now. We definitely profit that night. Actually, yea, we even love at all. We didn't know Thames. I've been looking. He knows about money. Remember that the last year, Rason, we'll playing. We're playing Black Jack, I think, whatever we're sitting playing, and there's a woman next was like really involved, a really into it, and me and Luis are sharing a seat at this table. We're sure to see it. We're like split double it for whether that don't. We're just shouting stuff it because we're on like about that role and it's just whatever. We're day's working and she's gone, that's No, who you play? You can't. Why didn that? That is stupid. And we kept winning. She got me annoyed, but then we were like, we'll talking some money on you. In like we put some money on one of her bets and then she want of it and became a bit more friendly. That as brilliantly see you winsny. Gradually it's made in mad annoyed that you for being something, but it's working for you. So it's one of the most satisfy. There was a comment, and he'll that actually made me choose this thread, and it Biz by. Where did it do? Waste Ph but it's basically whole China cormic comments. I I had a call Walker who was proud of the fact that, despite having four children, he had never changed a diaper. Someone chastise them for it and said there was just a bad father. No loss. I know you probably don't have much experience changing nappies. Don't enough. You will change. Jill be brought us. Yeah, so those are I wasn sure of you that. I don't but here. But yeah, I don't have much experience. Like I don't just score and changing them. You're Mussy's let me do it. So right, take a shift off, enjoy a coffee. I'll get that's one best fee. I'll be whoa or great things that I'm idio SEPULCI COD o sweeps, one had replied. Just seeing all the that here and this, it heals my take change your babies diaper every chance you get. By not doing so you're missing a terribly important bonding opportunity. The baby is uncomfortable and we're all messy diapers. By packing them up and change them, you operivading relief for your child. Additionally, in equally, if not more important, they're laying then naked, exposed, invulnerable. The diaper changer and baby added that act, and I'm very basic, not schering way. I contact, physical touch, provading the reef and comfort. Everything needed for developing that special bond fallows out. They'll do yourself, at and your child a favor. I'm the huge sword. By stepping up and doing that regular, regularly, final tap, but from pairing of growing children. Hold your childs and every chance you get, because of will come a day Wi they won't want to let you do it anymore. Nig I know you never changed any Raine nappies, but maybe should lot consider you ask him on Misteque, I don't know something. Yeah, I go. I chose my favor, my feel. Sure you you want to say, though. You see, it's a huge saw. It's really a huge solid right. That's one thing and I think that's that's definitely old timy thinking like hum, I'm working all the you look after the kids, I'm the comedy changing the fucking that like that's that's all ways like s f s can I thinking it's like typical, like you be the housewife. I I wouldn't even see as far back is sexties, and I would say that's like mere recent. I think it's just I will generation maybe...

...the last couple. That's kind of Dagon changes. I'm a nice kid, but my bronze start, it's like my feather change snappies. But then a kind of his dad would a I suppose. I suppose, but I just got me thinking like obviously maybe boys look grown up quick and I've noticed myself Mal me recently, like how big he's getting on, like just appreciating all the be things. I'm like, AH, but soon as going to be the last for being certain things really and it's sad and scary. But the same time I'm just a try love. You got mare in a moment when I'm then hangs with that to before you check in your home and your whole as. It just better, mind, steven, that it comes full circle and they'll be a point where he has to change. You're happy, I'm waiting, I'm prepped, I've been hold that doesn't from happy for both they might or roughty. Geez, I've got one. An unimpressive every still on that eye, so so, an unimpressive thing that people are idiotically proved off. It's a very hard tale to see. Zepen. Oh, why this clearer, right, let's look cool. Th done it? disclaimer. I do kind of understand that long term smokers who want to give it get themselves off it like catton down and using like low measured amounts of nicotine and vape to kind of dirt. And even then, I must be a better solution. But still, rape. It's just stupid. It's it's like it's obnoxious, man. See, I think the smoke part is cool. Anyone like tricks and Shit fucking? That's sick. That's maybe. That's different. Why you got that much the steam or smoke? Comment Your Moove Metal at the vapor things. Dumb people don't like just walking in down there like blowing they cool smoke rings and like shooting smoke balls for them. Are you got to get schememate? Honestly, should see the world. He's easy world. So I don't so much smoke, but in London, man, it's just be so vapnic Shupid. Like it looks cool, like in a rap you're mate, like just, but your mate just cut off. I could could you still her crun. It's cool a rap video. Oh, I'm sorry, I like pure muted for your sorry, you're ruining every fin now work for see. So I'm sorry. Tell us. What is it look cool at they're gone. I wrap produce like when it's big. She shook clouds, but like vapans just it doesn't know, look cool. That's fair, but just Nah. And I just well, I don't understand is why people who like never smoked at all are picking up and just starting it, because it's like like even like vape has like very small amounts of like Nicotina, even the ones that see like nicotine free. So it's like you're actually a non smoker picking that's up and putting nicotine on your system. Like yeah, I don't get the whole thing. Also, mean it's still as days, but could still be a long time effects it. That's just picking up for the sake of, as you writ walk clothes and taste marshmalls. Well, want to know. Some of the smell pretty good, though, but it just it's annoying. On like you see them at taims. I've been like it's a good donut stand near here, like, oh no, it's not just a vape. It's just hit me from fifteen feet up the road. So I wonder that. Just Google that there. I wonder if people were like if smoking was increasing or decreasing in the UK, like the more or less people smoking. Apparently it's been declining since one thousand eight hundred and seventy four. What smokers? Yeah, so wonderfully, I would have a back up. All Right, I thought you're going to see the vapes probably help, but I was going to say just in general it smoke seems to be another clean it's weird when you see something actually smoker segarette. Now I think, HMM, yeah, it's not cool anymore. That's just so possible. Ste there's nothing worse than walking behind a smoker. Geez, take up goodness, great, like fuck, but not. I hate. I I've always hated the smell. That went from just to make me feel sick, chaine struggle to breathe with like and then I think. I don't know. There's six situations were at any mind. If folk are smoking the outside the pub and we're walking to sit in doing I don't mind sitting there and kind of been near it, but when you're walking behind it and it's like the only ear...

...is this second hands, it is fucking rank and run. I hate it, but I didn't know. It doesn't happen as much anymore. Also, they walk around and focus much either, thanks smoking. Only got killed. Dan It like back in the Ol days because of like Film Stars and Rock Stars. Don't mad men made smoking pretty cool? No, gotta Lie. Did they not? Used to say that it was good for you as well? When I was about us. Will See. Yeah, let's target kids, didn't it? HMM, I but a right, hmm. I'm sure don't. Used to target kids. Why? I don't know. Get them young man, get them hurt. Interesting, makes sense. Did Not know that. Try, like Google it online. Iq Test, course. Why are you googling so nice? Let the people say, Oh, I've got an Iq a one hundred and forty it. I don't know. Google quiz that. Ask me ten questions. Surely some Iq tests online must be like based on a real IQ test. I probably, but like IQ tests the only really that that look reliable anyway, other because it's merely away your memory than anything else. That doesn't necessarily there. We are fool mental capacity. What should like? You seven teen sense. The fact is its broken up, as he said. Seventeen makes sense and apparently can book your Iq test through Mento Dot Org dot UK. Maybe we should all do it. I mean he's of it, actually done it. Let's doings a billion facebook Gordon's feet quiz and you got an Iq of one for it. I was actually Demna get to hear from a response. What's the cost on that? You know? I don't know. Do you need to be I sope it was going to be free. It's a look I used to go and is somewhere. You CAS it online. You also need to like basically provide evidence that you're smart to be able to clean and get it measured. Oh immen's a home test is a forty five minut assessment. Ten pound. That's actually reasonable. We should do that one. We could do that. Is that why I once actually going to come back now that that we need to Dat us that we do. Yeah, yeah, price include second class postage of packtation moving first class. Nice really sending you for an Iq test. Pain and paper. It looks like a yearly Lee foot. I'll post a link in the discord. The link will be in the show notes for anybody who wants to also book a test. Anybody who has a higher Iq than the three years when's a free t shirt. That's a good idea. That is a good idea, although the three of US combined, I took beat ninety. I mean that's just embarrassing ourselves if one person has an higher Iq than fear of this. Yeah, that's posible. The change the show name to what? Almost three idiots go back to three DS, like three dris. That's getting good one God, bonus point for you and the Iq test. Yeahll do. I found another web section fromly. I had a wet section. Did you say what was the test? Did it in like first year of high school to see that, or like in primary seven to see like what what you'd study? What they law you were going to be? Remember the test? No, no, we did one and I swear I could tell what's called. But for me and my heat, I remember being like draw tr angle. Oh, you got that right. Draws. How many sizes a squared go for fucking house is like it seemed like the stupidest thing ever apart. I got the highest score and I think, I think your class it already be say you need me whenew up the last. We're not just folly for the whole high schools, like, are you? You're many to be getting like a you may top of this, top of that, as I don't know of your teacher me if it feels like a you problem. I don't know. It sounds like you visited like that. Bring your parents and nurse three day or something. He marks cut. have to find it what that's called, don't you? Baby my bigs, I know seeing that...

...when the question is how many seeds a square got your name and that question. You don't. It's the answer. I've already answered this of it seventeen years ago. There's a nothing. He's spread, by the way. That I thought was worth talking about, which is what people proud of, and it's been assholes, people who are like proud of being a dick. HMM, why? That's like Carden's doing it. HMM. Now I was thinking the other ones are like, of course, and Caden's up proud and they are not wrong. Ever, I was thinking it was merely type of people that are like, Oh, I'm just real, I'm just me. I see it her as yeah, I mean I thought that's what I took it out of, that pushing to the front. So much about we that Shit. You know, those those people in supermarkets and that where you know they give like the we like look on our ways if they're not slipping in the queue and then they just like tell me, or getting in front of the kill. Then he realize you're there. Sorry. Well, I'm letting you know. Me, I was in test scored all these. I see a cad and firsthand you don't as she was shooting at the lastey behind it, always because baskets were play drying. Any of your last it was like, how is that my fault? It was look, twenty pence of difference. I think it was one six that whenty and she wrant it for one hundred and sixteen. She's like I need to get something like sho no, no, no, no, no, and then the manager give it mans like not rank, and that walked away. All know. You see that bye, but that's a listen, May to score a few weeks ago and the wet it's like a wee test score just in the road. And there was flowers that I want to say we're like by their use by the or they used by it was today. So they had like half price off or they were, I don't know. Don't you a pound? And she was arguing that it said fifty percent off and then it said a pound. So she was only going to pay fifty P and she wasn't need paying any more. But she wanted these flowers. The going none the pounds, the discrete prey ice and on. The manager like was not I get that that's the price, but well, I want my flowers, it will are a pound, as you just arguing, like no, it's fifty percent off of whatever you put on there. If you put a price now, that's your problem. Know what this is. You kind of just decide. Don't interpret stuff. I'm sorry for followers at all. That's not back, but should have none of it. But she was like looking room for other people in support, like could use pub right people right the power or put them back. They'll be in the been tonight. He's I here voiced and votes on that one. Okay, of those that was good to was good chart. Thanks boys. What idiots in the road to prevade content for that one. All right, it's been up votes all around today. Sony, pressure loose. I hope you've got a really gied episode to end on, because I can last week, or the last episode, was a bit rough. So let's keep it like hard. Take it away, met, thanks for lasting this week. So they that's all we've got time for my Goldma. All right, so my thread is posted on our technology and it's titled a woman claimed she was virtually grouped by a gang of male avatars in Metas Meta verse report says. I'm just letting that like sinking for a moment, just to gage your reactions on that. Gun't looks like it's Canna unfazed by it, whereas Stevens finding it can of funny. I'm calling him out on that one. And still report from the Mail on Sunday feels like I'm a Bush pig business inside. Actually a reported that the Mail on something reported this food disclose up. I'm laughing. So happen? Yeah, gone. Actually saw called, but in some of that I played you want to be again the knuckles in do she know that we. I'm gonna be honest. Right you see a scroll through, read it desperately trying to find a thread last minute. I seen the title and personally, like personal I'd laughed when I read it because, like it's like, let's just be clear, women being grouped or abused anything...

...like that is like totally unacceptable and it's not nice. And you know what, people being assholes online need to get a life. That that's just fact of it. Yeah, but I've found it like mentally hard to can a draw the line on this one dropping because because it's just like I know the metaverse or Meta versus are'd like being built to be kind of virtual worlds and people are going to start spending a lot of time there and to me it still comes across every day Steven. Yeah, I'm just pretended. He's not your like it just comes across gave me to me, and maybe that is because, like I've played games on my life. I've been for really freaking have a hotel, like play station home. I've played the SAMs, all that stuff, jopping, I was like played vre. I'm like, I just don't see it as like this real life and I've grown up through like years of gaming where like people think Click facebook comments and twitters like toxic. Like go back. You can like to one of the earlier card games and tell lobby like that's toxic. Come on, if you come up through that like you'd gone out this life bold. Yeah, exactly. Like see them out of people that have like had sex and my mom so it m apparently, though, like through xbox live and playstation network. Like it's true, though, when it like people like Oh, I've had text you them, it's like Reill, know you have name, but that's supposed to be like hurtful. I I feel like at this stage I'm rambling, but I'm trying to get my point across, like I just don't know why. I like, I don't know. I find it hard to like process where that liners with all this on like stuff. Good that statement. There follows clip that you'll see everywhere. Or look at the story. The title Click, is fuck quite funny, like awesome. They claim they were groped to the like. That's just that's no real thing, is it? But taking at the story, this person is vice president of research for the rival mate a verse and she's was very bally and sexually harassed. By three or four male arbotars in this place, which is fair. Like there's going to be abuse and you've got a report that. So you've got a reas up. You don't want that. You don't w your kids going something like where is there's a whole bunch of abuse in it and it could be like a whole, but it could just be like pure misogynistic fuckers being absolute arsholes like that. That's why I mean like Phil Clardy, like people definitely do get like of you also program something coming groping folk. As fucked have you got, like? Is it not like the VIF? And you can use and see your hands, so they're not. Let me show that's really think. You Stop Fus. That are, though, Jaman and like, I don't know, actually drought my don't think that was an animation for that act. That actual hands up. Let's let's play this meeting it. This would be like the smilling Western does spiffer messing thing. We're going to be Bob in the boardroom, a game, Bob, Hey, Bob, God, idea made a verse. Quick Question. Can I smack a ty? You said No. You cuts back to easy. You just stopped. Don't program it. Yeah, it's America. So they reply was hell, yeah, I'm surely. Look, if you're building this, that's the first thing you think of. Is like right, right, if I're going to be abused at what could we stalk like the yeah, so I think it's I've got me. But there's a point to like the actual story of what you shouldn't build to do this. But also it comes to arrival. So that loses a bit. Of loses a bit. Really. Would you call it? Wait, I like feel sort of some one of them, thinking of your fool. Who Cares? She, as you say, she works for arrival and that rival company specifically target and, as you say, like people like online abuse. Basically. Yeah, so it does come across like very convenient for that person, but maybe as like a good example of how people are acting. Only yeah, I think I think that point is as a big difference between like someone getting like targeted Hete and abuse, like I might you know, there's these people who obviously take it very badly or just, you know, hundreds of messages ad Ay just like seeing are you you're as like your dirt Epedo or whatever, for no reason, joint like that. That sort of thing is like I get why that gets people down and why it's like hurt full and stuff, but then like like see me and you jump in the metaverse, Gun't right, and put a little fake boxing gloves on and start like thinking about it, and then I just like pub my hands below the belts.

I mean, you're not going to go, well, she's trying to grab my Dick, that's not a good turn. And see you then go no, just going to be punching it, surely. But if I love on the met of RS and every time I log on Louise appears, there's like actual really, that's it, harrass but it like that shit is no cool. Now I do think that that's like that should be allowed. That right, man, but I'm you can of just go grabbing people's backs and that that's what the story is. It as what you carry? I I don't know. But what I think what most was seeing at the agree me like I don't see this as any other I'm looking at this as if fat it's a game, it's a v Ar chat and all that. To me. I get that they'll try to make it more real, but there's something just those, something just so bizarre. But like imagining this group a fucking guys running bit with all we go go zone and I'll be boxing gloves, Little Lucy chasing someday. That it was ridiculous. Obviously it's trying. Maybe they should be. Had asked on all that as fucking ridiculous. No, like totally agree that it's something calmic call about. They thought it and that's we virtual reality world. Hey, it's like that. To be fair, grant, there is features in play already. So a hundred percent. They need to get better. So apparently there's features were like you can block people basically within your radius and then they just like disappear. But people are saying that doesn't work yet, because then what happens is like so it's my body just malfunction there and basically everybody disappears. So then you're like in the metaverse alone. So solutions like get virtually grouped or walk about alone. So if you bought one person just now, everybody disappears, something like that. Yeah, it's like it's not a very good the safe zone, a bubbles in or to avoid interaction colors like these. I guess there's parts of this that are still failing you, especially in nevare sense. But like, this stuff will never go away. So all we need to do is put faith that, as you said, grant these meetings that come along. They just introduce better features for people who are like, like it is kind of sad job, mean that somebody's first fought is I'm going to go follow this female Avatar run and pretend to touch her fut your body jo mean, like that's some sad it's reallys are somewhere. Like it definitely is, and I can definitely see why, as you said, if you logged one every time this was happening, like think. At the same time, I'm like, you know what, that's fucking weird man. Take the head set off. It's cool, she'll I'll go play play station or something instead, and that that that's not fair, though, because if if there's doesn't have put the guys, it just happens to women, and then this is like imagine this as a future, but women kind of Gandy it because they're going to get sexy or ass, but the guys can can do it and they could do what they want. Then that's not that's that's just know how that works. As that that is there's always going to need to be effects for that, because even right now it's the same glass. He's kind of talk on my com playstation. I'm not forgetting that. Asked. Playstation lobbies are always dead and then you hear a last it bit on Michael and then order you keep coming. Okay, but catching getting a catchen hangs. It's all. It's always been that. We on line and at that is shit. They should be neat to feel like the candidate and if it being had asked. I was laughing at this, but and the long term, is Na, isn't really that funny? No, it's definitely not funny that people will follow people virtually tear ask them and if you want to be politically political about it, like there's like a lot of that's right, nice for the records, but yeah, that's funny. Look, broke me right. No, but that's exactly why I picked this thread, though, is because it's like there's an element of it that it's like kind of funny and humorous, like Sol bizarre, really honest about it. But there's always it's actually not that funny. Ting you come, they're give for me, by the way, I don't think M I see just in case there's a part of it. That what isn't he all right, you what we keep talking because your play with your wires. There's no one stream. This is not the matter verse. I'm going to touch your life. But yeah, I just said it was a part of it. This funny, like the titles funny. But yeah, it's like thought provoking. Of Not my think. It is like if you're making this everything, it's on you to make sure that doesn't happen, because that's not cool. You kind of ash like get keep it and see. Well, Dinny Gon know it, because that's just not all that works all that. I just mean like from somebody using a service, like I'm not forced to use any service that there are, play any game, and if that developer isn't doing good enough, then I'm just not going to use it. And that's how you show them that are not doing good enough. Right. So it's not like women should have to put up with that or like it's just it's okay from nd like it's not like everybody just needs to stop being a count online as well as in the real world. But then people are comes the...

...real world, so that's going to translate online, especially when people are kind of semi anonymous online. They're going to take a liberties. So I think that's something like I'm scanning the article. Try to be just is we just were chatting it. I think that's her thing. Is I really like thinking about if this is the future, like what needs to change, because just now, like they can go and do the stuff and there's any law that says that wherever they did was illegal because it was all online. I mean, surely it's some kind of like, because obviously on online harassment as as I came. So surely that, I would say, for not somebody part us? I think it's just like a tricky thing, isn't and I guess there's probably going to be as many idting like call them gray areas, because they shouldn't exist. But just now there's all these struggles, especially from like a female point of view, with just how things are in the real world, with people harassed in them and all this stuff. But I guess everything that's, let's say, hard to create laws for and like where do you draw the lines and certain things, all of that's going to happen all over again. For the matter of verse, isn't it? Because it can. It's not the same thing, obviously, but it's targeted to be the same thing. As we go talk, we got, like you got to solve those difficult problems because have those hard conversations and figure it and although I think the sort of my body male fuctions as well more fortunate, although the daily mails probably the worst place to start because that's the title they picked. The business inside of just copied the same title. It's probably the best place to God with it, but we're talking about it. Maybe something listening, although do something about how I want to make a plead to the Meta verse and Like Online Worlds and gaming for myself, if people want to join me in this plate is that we can never Bann or frown upon and tea bagging. Yeah, fair. If I kill you, that's fair game. Yeah, if somebody gets the better me and the metaverse or an online game like you've got Phil remit to just tea bag away, I'm not gonna enjoy it. If I love on to the metal verse every Fucking Day and you follow me a room going let me you, Maggie. I've got a few bid you don't get it, Steven, if you block my path a little day about it. You take any clap you and just watching. You only get to tea bag if you've had the one up on people. That's that in the rules. Damn, are the rules. You don't get any tea bag and that will shit. Or don't even have legs there. That's why, Bob your character, I suppose like an actual tea bag pop in a bit. Did you see that tweet about why they did have legs in the matter verse? No, no, that's because it's apparently during research everybody's want to rupt to mark Suckerburg and kick him in the boss. Know as that. That's so funny tweet the level that's fearfully, it's actually not. It's because it's Ay, I run up to mark Zuckerberg and I'm gonna Touch your Wille anyway. I'M gonna lie. I say, Oh, did they think I would laugh right at the start? I'm yeah, I love that. May See that comment to be far is for sure. It's a very polarizing topic. It will be interesting to see it what comes well this stuff, though. But I guess for Claudic Seck just people just need to stop being in counts like as we spoke a bit before, it's not that hard really isn't. It's not the last thread. Don't be proud of being an arshole. Exactly, don't. There yea and someone see, you need to go to met a court for this, and then someone else replied, can't wait to see what met a prison looks like. Oh boy, you have to make a lot of crypto for this long time. Also, imagine being judged by someone called the judging EOR and thirty one exploration mark. It's going to be exciting as well when I as nice being laughs as well as on the cusp a something like this. Because when is the last time actually seen something like that's this?
