That isn't enough to give us a $5,000 machine.

Unknown:

Stephen Edwards:

up to. So they won't just sell you the machine. They don't sell the machine actually you can't buy the machine it's just it's like you have to do X amount of volume and coke and then they're like we'll give you a machine to use and keep you in a coke contract till you're dead.

Or going somewhere. We'd probably go to Mexico. Yeah, that doesn't sound shitty. Yeah. February I like Susan's birthday is in February. Mine's in March. We usually like you should it was last time you guys went on a vacation I don't talk about it all the time and never

Stephen Edwards:

that up on our conservative talk podcast. So annexed off the island for Yeah, so

Unknown:

it's Thanksgiving week. You guys are going out to eat for Thanksgiving.

Stephen Edwards:

So this is I'll say this almost like the lamest Thanksgiving ever. And I say that because it's just me and my parents. And my youngest went to his mother's for Thanksgiving before he goes again to the Navy in January. And I mean, it's me Tito, and my mom and dad. So I think we're Gonna go to the wind and we're gonna we're going to be Vegas locals who go to the wind for Thanksgiving. Yeah, that's I don't know if it's awesome or not but I mean I'm I have no hate for the wind. Yeah, no, it's probably you know this this affordable like, you know not even affordable but this great dinner we're gonna go to at the wind is gonna cost me a G because I'm going to end up playing craps or something and

Unknown:

yeah, I like eating out in Vegas. I mean, I think it's an awesome place to go. I mean, things are super back to normal.

Stephen Edwards:

Yeah, like a mouse that we're gonna just ride that out until we're dead. But

Unknown:

oh, isn't that weird? Like, so we stopped wearing our masks, even in the grocery store and stuff like that. So anybody yell at you? Anybody hit you know? Because it's, it's dumb. It is dumb. Like, I mean, it's dumb. But then it's also dumb that they don't bring it back up. You know what I mean? Like,

Stephen Edwards:

it's dumb, because we've been a lot of places that don't require them. And you're like, Well, this is super weird to Yeah. You know how, like, basically anywhere? Well, so like I went out to Jarrods deal out in Denver. Yeah, they, like they didn't require mass. I know. They just brought him back like this last week, but oh, they did? Yeah, Denver.

Unknown:

Oh, shit. I didn't see I didn't know that. It's because I was there. You know, for the wedding and stuff like that. And same thing. Jared is not happening. Oh, damn, that's crazy. So is there an increase in cases? What they say? What that guy says. Oh,

Stephen Edwards:

that guy says it. Well, I mean, I I don't know. I don't even know how to think about it. I'm tired of the masks. i It doesn't stop me from going out. I'll be honest. I'm probably the worst mask where? If you're a mask shamer I'm probably the guy you should shame.

Unknown:

Yeah, but no, I just wanted to I flew a lot this year. And I and you know, and I understood that. And it's nice to have a mask on when you're snoring on an airplane and stuff.

Stephen Edwards:

I don't like wearing them on their plane, but I don't mind. I get the why. I mean, I get of all the places. That's probably a great place to wear it.

Unknown:

Yeah, but see labia but then I don't wear it. Like when I'm walking through the airport. Because I don't feel like it's necessary.

Stephen Edwards:

Well, as long as you're drinking or sitting down your phone is dumb. So enough about that is that is we're definitely going to get cancelled for though.

Stephen Edwards:

You know what I also hate? Like, I think of all the places in the world where you have to be yourself is Facebook. I fucking can't stand when people don't have a real profile picture.

Stephen Edwards:

know, I just don't get it. Like I'm giving you know, I would never go change my name. What would I change it to? Steven J. And then that would be just, and then it would be like, I'd be mysterious and be like, who's Steven J?

Unknown:

Who? Steven? Yeah. I don't know. Susan used to we have her middle name on there. And so when we first started that says, Oh, well, John, but she had it like as her full name. Oh, no. Like, I don't know why I think it just had it might have been at the time when you fill out the name and then

Stephen Edwards:

she had the last four of her social so just said that's probably why I know her and her mother's maiden name.

Unknown:

Stephen Edwards:

Their first car? Yeah, what was what was the model of your first car? And what was your favorite book Growing up

Unknown:

Stephen Edwards:

Oh, there it's always like what is your grandmother's first name? What is your c pick those first? Yeah. What was your first car?

Oh, so what was your first car?

Stephen Edwards:

Well, now everybody's gonna hack me now. Go ahead. It was a Honda Prelude.

Unknown:

So did put in Honda Prelude.

Stephen Edwards:

See I fuck that. Yeah, because sometimes I put Prelude sometimes I put Honda Prelude. And then I'm like, I know I definitely had a Honda Prelude. And yes, I got to put in a few different ways. Yeah,

Unknown:

I'll tell you my mind. I always put my my cat's name. Okay, your pet's name. Yeah. So go with the pet's name. And then yeah, mother's mother's mother's

Stephen Edwards:

Yeah, what is it that was asked the one I was always mess up or I'm like I should city city you're born in? Yeah. Mine is mine is what always asks your dog name of your first dog. Well, when they say first dog, is it my first dog? When I was a kid? Is it my first dog as an adult? Yeah, I mean, there could be a lot of first dogs. So I've messed that one up a couple. That's why

Unknown:

pick your favorite cat or your favorite pet and I was with Keisha. We've had her the longest, I guess. That's good. Yeah.

Stephen Edwards:

So now if anybody wants to like hacker identities, basically, you've got you got the stepping stones to Yeah, completely take over our lives.

Unknown:

Yep. So we went to Orlando. That was fun. The water sports. That was fun. God damn. I like Florida, though. That was a good time. We we went out. I think yeah, I bought I bought around the shots that got me in trouble on that one. But that was good money for that. But you did. It was it was too it was too much too many. And

Stephen Edwards:

that's that's what happens when James had a few too many drinks.

Unknown:

But I don't think I had a few too many. I just thought it wasn't gonna be as much. And even when Greg and then we're talking about it in the podcast,

Stephen Edwards:

like, That's me. I'm like, Well, you weren't that guy. You weren't no other good. That's why

Unknown:

I felt like it was like, it was kind of like, you know, Hey, Bob, for everybody else. And then everything. I was like, Oh, well, that wasn't fair for me to buy for everybody. I didn't mean to buy like everybody like that guy did. But yeah, he did buy everything. But it was a lot of shots. It was it was it was good. Um, what did we what did we we went to Disney World. We did go to Disney World. So that was my first time going to Disney World. And

Stephen Edwards:

one of those magical place for you

Unknown:

while we talk. Let's talk about Yeah, I mean, it was it was me scoping it out. I think that was a prime example because used to always be like, take your kids to Disney World Jaden. Just load up in the car. With me, Steve. We're waiting in line for 55 minutes together. No, like, fuck that. I was like, Steve, do you see why I don't take my kids to Disney World at the age that they're at right now.

Stephen Edwards:

I feel like that is a complete setup to test relationships and test parents like mental agility because I can't stand the idea of sitting there and waiting in line for an hour to go on a ride and your kids like it's hot. I'm thirsty. Your wife has nagging like change a kid. Oh my god, I'm going to burn this motherfucker down

Unknown:

when when we were there everybody was pretty well behaved of the type of people that it was not like you saw that, like snotty kid or we were never in line when it was, but it was funny. We are in the first line of that right so we're gonna we're gonna be tricked. What was the line? It was a rock and roller coaster. Okay, rockin roller coaster. So this was kind of funny, because this is the other point. This is a true point when you got a kid like I'd feel bad if that was broken, like, hey, Brock, and we waited 55 minutes in line, and then you get to the line. And then that rides might be a little bit more, more to it than you thought. Like, he went on this rock and roller coaster one. And that probably was the most aggressive ride of the day that we went on. And that was the first one. Yeah, and, and it wasn't even, like super aggressive. But it was, there was some younger kids that were next to us. And they were a little scared of like going on. And I see why. Like, you know, the locking thing comes down and barely fits on him, you know, and she needs to we're both afterwards. They're like, Pam wonder if that little kid made it.

Stephen Edwards:

Oh, I don't even know if I like that. Because it's just spinning you around in the dark. I was on my phone. It was.

Unknown:

Yeah. And then I went on the tower tear or by myself, you know, I'm not about that life. So that so that was funny when I went on. That's the other one like you wait, but then you see smaller kids next year, like okay, I'm fine. Not gonna die, right.

Stephen Edwards:

I don't feel like you're gonna die on any of them. I feel like they've made a pretty circular not gonna die.

Unknown:

Yeah. But when I went on it, I was a little it's psyched me out a little bit. I never went on it before, but I could see going on it again and being like, Oh, that was fun. You know what to expect and put your hands up. But I'll admit, I didn't put my hands up in the picture.

Stephen Edwards:

So if you lived in Orlando or California, like Orange County, would you have season tickets?

Unknown:

No, I don't even have season tickets to wet and wild here in Vegas.

Stephen Edwards:

Okay, but this is a little different. I mean, and your kids are getting a little bit older. Okay. You don't think you would? No. Interesting?

Unknown:

No, because I think I think as much as

Stephen Edwards:

I know, Ben and his wife they got they got season tickets universal and Disney and they go all the time. Like, my think it's wild. I don't know if I would. But I mean, I'm also a well

Unknown:

think about think about the people that are the people that are going there, you know, on vacation, and then also think about how busy your life is, in general where you live, right? Sure. So just because you live in Orlando or living next to Disney World, you know, you still are busy with normal life.

Stephen Edwards:

Right? So I also wonder, so first off my observation, there was everybody that has a Disney t shirt. Feel like I'm not that guy. I definitely didn't have a Disney t shirt. But I know if you guys went you guys would all have like aligned Disney T shirts.

Unknown:

I'm going so.

Stephen Edwards:

But if you did I mean and I'm putting this in Susan's ear if if you guys go to Disneyland, I really expect a family pick which I like.

Unknown:

I like I think Mickey's nostalgic and i like i i bought the hat.

Stephen Edwards:

But I mean you wouldn't you have a thing one thing two things three. No, come on now. That is a lie. I see your guys's family photos. I see the bullshit of you guys like dressing up like cowboys in the backyard. You're telling me you're 2020 you're going to Disney and you're not dressing up you watch Yellowstone by the way. I've watched like two episodes. I my team will will discuss my TV watching after a minute my TV watching is absolutely just stupid. Take to the train station. All I'm all I'm watching his office. That's all I watched. That's not fun. It's not that's why I'm telling you. It's not even interesting. Okay, so Disney World thing though. And but you're not you're not wearing and I'm so surprised by your answer. But I feel like you're wrong. I feel like you're lying to me. If Susan was on here, Susan, it'd be like the fuck we are now. Okay. Susan, I invite you to write in you can be the only person that's ever written into our podcasts.

Unknown:

Peal box for eight to Yeah, please. Vegas without

Stephen Edwards:

a self addressed stamped envelope.

Unknown:

She just dropped it off in the window in my car and I'm bringing.

Stephen Edwards:

Yeah, there's no way she's letting you Okay, so that's an observation one. I think you would. My other observation was what it was good. Oh my god, what was it?

Unknown:

When you think about it? That was good. This was my question because I asked this to you there and so I'm curious even to if you're listening like what do you think an average allow? Not even allowance I guess. But like your cost ago. Now. What do you think people spend like, you know what I mean? Like, you see, you see the dad there and he's just got the credit card and he's, you know, I mean, it is what it is? I think a lot of people are on that like, you know, $50 like, Hey, I brought $100 cash or $50 or

Stephen Edwards:

I think the number I've heard is absurd because it's like on On average, it's families of four coming, and they come for five days. And it's upwards of $10,000.

Unknown:

No, I believe that that that five because they

Stephen Edwards:

probably because they are at an Airbnb or they're at a hotel and mixed with lunch, dinner snacks and going to, you know, they spent two days at Disney one day at Universal $10,000 is not around number. No, I think it's 10k 2500 bucks a day, or 2000 bucks a day for five days. I mean, passes alone to get into the park are

Unknown:

is 10% of your annual income. Yeah, what were our passes to get

Stephen Edwards:

in 130,000 or 102 100 130 bucks a person again? Yeah. And that was without even Fastpass or multi Park. Yeah, so 180 bucks. So there's it's 1000 bucks for a family of four to get in. Yeah.

Unknown:

Sounds like I'm not definitely not going for four days. Hey, boys, I hope you like the beach. Just the public beach. The sand is free. Hey, boys, don't forget to take home a seashell on your way out. And the funny thing was is okay, so then Steve was even giving me shit. So speaking of matching T shirts, so then we stopped at all the souvenir shops, right? No, because I'm gonna get I think Mickey's misdemeanor. I'm a tour so I like that type. I like trinkets. Trinkets as mine. My thing, right? I like trinkets and hot sauce. Okay, um, so we went to the trinkets and you know from Disneyland, I'm like, fuck that shit. You know what I mean? And then then we go to all the cheap T shirts like the off brand stores, right? Yep. And Steve's like, why aren't you gonna do Sure? Aren't you good? And I'm like, Well, this Mickey's only got one. I mean, he's not. Well, I mean, realistically, it is. They're not that bad. A quality of stuff. But it's so dumb. Like, it's just

Stephen Edwards:

I mean, if you're gonna live them Mickey life.

Unknown:

How did that? How are those businesses still in business? It probably Crusher? Probably. I don't think they do. I don't know. I don't know that guy. That guy is, um, that guy bought that container about 20 years ago. It still has all the product in there in the same store.

Stephen Edwards:

I mean, I'm all about so my my like, thing you should check out when you're in Orlando is the Boston lobster company. For the Boston is it the Boston lobster fest

Unknown:

last year? Okay, so, so let me give you the rundown of this place. All right. And honestly, I mean, Steve, like we like to go eat. We like eating. And we also like, like experiences or trying for things right? Like, well, we'll go to a hole in the walls, we'll go to vice versa. But this was right up our alley. And honestly, if we could actually read it, I would give it i would give it an eight out of 10.

Stephen Edwards:

Okay, I think you're probably right, aligned. I mean, seven and a half.

Unknown:

When I did say, that was a little high. Seven would have been probably the spot on answer. But we call it on stuff like this. Like, would we go there again? I think definitely at least one more time. Or you definitely take some

Stephen Edwards:

take some Yeah. But I'm not just going because like, that was the best No,

Unknown:

but But you would take but that's that's our skill rating. Right? I don't know how we do that. Because we we go someplace, enjoy and then like, you'll take me or whatever. Like, oh, it was good enough. Like I'll take Jaden or, or we'll take somebody and then after that we're usually like, Oh, we've been there before. Or we've done yeah. Yes. So seven, I think a seven a 7.1 is where I'm at, because it was good enough to go back. But our service was also very good.

Stephen Edwards:

Well, yes, because we have the dude the old guy that retiree that was cracking our logs is

Unknown:

from so he was from the East Coast. He explained it to us and I'll give you a little tidbit of that. So if you guys a case you guys I mean it is all you can eat like lobster tails, too. I mean, they had no say lobsters No, but they give you you know, one one per buffet time going up there but you can have as many as you can, but you get a male or a female and so the females had the eggs which were liberated, which were a little more messier and he even said that too. He said you know sometimes some people just don't like to

Stephen Edwards:

I was I was not there looking into addiction

Unknown:

yeah for a fact but you but you found but when you get a when you get a non egg one it's comes out nice to crack it and he also says to it's all you can eat so don't fuck around with it like you don't need to be digging in the claws you don't need to be the but what was the pumper? The pumper thing I got a pump the water out water before you crack it. And I was like God Damn, that's a I mean, that should probably give them extra points for just seven. That's why I got a 7.1

Stephen Edwards:

It was good. It was I mean, I don't the idea of like, I guess I've been to a lot of buffets where you can just eat all the like crab legs you can and it always feels nice because you have other options. This is all you can eat lobster and you're like okay, I'm down I'll eat all this lobster and I was like they had other things but

Unknown:

yeah, the other things weren't like as good as good but what was good was like the cold seafood. You know what I mean? I enjoyed some of that. I thought that was good because It was more of a seafood buffet.

Stephen Edwards:

I poke you for the first time the other day. You did. Mm hmm. It's totally out of my comfort zone. But

Unknown:

it's actually pretty good. It was really good. Tastes kind of fresh. Yeah, but it's not as like fresh. It doesn't taste like Ross.

Stephen Edwards:

Totally, totally psyched myself out about it, but it was pretty good. Yeah.

Unknown:

And then I'll and then poker. I was just gonna end with that dessert table. I took the whole experience in because we were ready for ready to go. There

Stephen Edwards:

was okay. Yeah, that was a horrible idea. Probably before an Air flight or before before a flight.

Unknown:

That flight was that flight sucked anyways even said, because you

Stephen Edwards:

think I got the middle. I don't even know how that happened. Somebody drew the wrong straw. I

Unknown:

think I flew. Yeah, we fly that late. Because when you go from Vegas to Orlando, you fly the last flight of the night, and then the first flight in the morning. And

Stephen Edwards:

that's just trash sourced. It is trash. Okay, so that's what we talked about seafood we've talked about.

Unknown:

So we went to Florida. That was our Orlando experience. We shout out to them. Yeah, I know, a couple new clients and a couple of news. So I wanted to mention this. We've been building a lot of websites for Peak Pro. And Peak Pro is in the news actually for getting some more money.

Stephen Edwards:

They raised all the money is another one. I'm seeing I'm blown away, man. I'm like I'm going to start putting a flood you know, our flags that we have outside for like Jeep rentals. I'm going to put up on looking for a Series A round. I have a you know.

Unknown:

So they're they're hiring, they're doubling down on their development. Actually, fair Harbor, they're coming for you. To be honest with you, too. I mean, fair harbor if you're listening to our podcast, which I bet you totally are. But where are you? All of them are? Where are you been? where they've been? They? They haven't been that noisy? They got acquired by booking.com. You know what I mean, a few years ago?

Stephen Edwards:

Do you feel like they're just so big? That they're like, Yeah, we don't care. They have so many

Unknown:

clients. I talked to a lot of people on the phone, you know, clients and our sales calls our sales discovery calls and people that have fareharbor on their website, usually have pretty good customer service with them. And so

Stephen Edwards:

sure, that's, I probably don't get a lot of churn.

Unknown:

Yeah, I hear that a lot. So no,

Stephen Edwards:

but I'm so torn on it. I mean, obviously, you know, we run still peek on all of our stuff. And I think it's great that raised all this money. I mean, I heard there's a lot of different directions. They can go down the rabbit hole with this. And yeah, it's a serious amount of money. I, it has to even buy, like back of the napkin math, it's got to be valued at $700 million. $700 million is some real deal. Fucking money. Were Series C round at $80 million. Yes, please.

Unknown:

Yeah, I was actually watching the podcast or the Grove, Ember, the webinar stuff. Yeah. So Oscar talked a little bit about, you know, what they what they've been doing the features, you know, I've been, I haven't showed you some of the things too, that I saw that they had on the rental side that they brought out. I know, they're doing some things with the helicopters. weight balance. So

Stephen Edwards:

and that's cool. But is there so this is just my like, thoughts on this? Are they're in like, I love that they're going after the helicopter market. But is there enough helicopter operators to justify all the helicopter setup? Right? So they've done a lot of work to cater to the helicopter business. And Vegas has two, maybe three operators, and we're about as busy of a helicopter market as there can be. Sedona has one. Hawaii, you know, Each island has probably a couple. Yeah, you're working in the east coast. But let's, let's say collectively across the US, there's 30 operators. Yeah. And I feel like that's high. I feel like that's a high number. I think it's May I bet you the numbers closer to 20? Yeah, but

Unknown:

let then let me let me counter your your argument here. But then how many customers do helicopter companies go through? And then save that time? 6%. So I'm gonna figure out some features. Well, yeah, I get it. I mean, like, they are the number one selling thing on OTAs. Usually, you know,

Stephen Edwards:

I hear from Vegas, they're in Vegas

Unknown:

for sure. Why wouldn't they be in the other markets then?

Stephen Edwards:

Well, because the other markets have like in Hawaii, there's a million other things to go do. And like Vegas, you're gonna go fly maybe to the Grand Canyon, or you're gonna do the flight over the strip. When you're in Hawaii. You're like, Oh, fucking ocean.

Unknown:

And I think think helicopters. They do a lot of numbers. I'm

Stephen Edwards:

sure. I mean, just to fly a helicopter out on a helicopter like Maverick has all the fucking helicopters. Those things are crazy. See the ones they have. So, let's say each one of those is 2 million bucks, and they've got 20 of them. So yeah, the revenue has to be there.

Unknown:

That's why I think their work, they're doing it right. And then also to to get in front of 30 people instead of trying to get in front of 500 people to pitch your product, it's a little easier I think.

Stephen Edwards:

Probably but then I mean, you got a lot of it certainly makes more sense to me than the guy running a walking tour. You know, yeah. But you know, it was one easier to get than the other Yeah, I mean, that is some enterprise level stuff one of these days we'll try to get Jan on here. I know she's on the enterprise side of that so maybe I'm the one thinking about this wrong but I'm going to just keep pushing him hard on all the rental stuff the rental stuff is where it's at that's where

Unknown:

Yeah, I think there's some cool idea I mean, we've we've talked about it even with the self serve rental thing and then being a booking platform like I think that's fucking super neat business concept right there. You know, we now being you know, knowing the watersports sides like jet all the problems that come with like watersports like in the rental like so there still is such shitty negatives that come in the rental side of the business where that's where it's like yeah,

Stephen Edwards:

I mean, I you know, just even going to the conference and hearing like, you know, being buddies now with Kevin and hearing their issues. It's so just a different bag of shit than what you know other guys like our problems seem like manageable when you start having to think about like dock space and some of that sort of things that they're dealing with. Which are just not even relevant issues that we even see. And you know, our clients over in San Diego even the same thing they're you know, they've got they're legit up and standing credible places that have been operating forever in their location so they're not dealing with like losing their Slipspace where that Florida market is a seems a little cutthroat seems different.

Unknown:

Yeah, and even I mean, even now to like, we you know, we have some operators in Utah, you know what I mean? Where the lakes are, don't there's a lot of that outdoor

Stephen Edwards:

that actually makes me just think Vegas is the hardest place to do anything. You mean like me the only body of water that's completely controlled by the BLM and has won you know, Marina awesome.

Unknown:

It is also rapidly declining at the fastest rate ever to that crazy like it's gonna be like it's gonna be a fly on the Lake Las Vegas. To like, is that going down to you think because it's got to be connected? No,

Stephen Edwards:

I thought it is connected, but like Las Vegas is man made. So yeah, I don't know. I think they pump obviously pump some water. I think it needs X amount of gallons of water a month to stay full. Yeah. But again, I don't know. I can't really wrap my head around that. They keep saying we just need all this snow. Yeah. I mean, it seems like we need a lot of goddamn snow, like forever.

Unknown:

And we'll look into I'm looking at some of those snaps,

Stephen Edwards:

we'll pull those can you get a degree in like water, basically water systems and explain to me why we're low on water and what we need. So I mean, again, I would love somebody to correct me on this because I'm beyond not smart on what this means. But why when the Missouri River and the Mississippi River

Unknown:

flood me?

Stephen Edwards:

Yeah, you're gonna Google this when the Missouri River floods every year, or the Mississippi River floods, like, every year, right? Why would they not build a pipeline to fill the Colorado River that I and I understand there's water rights, and everybody wants to water yada yada yada. But I mean, the President is great at these like presidential mandates. Yeah, he could just be like, You know what, we're gonna build this waterway there's water pipeline.

Unknown:

And add today today? I mean, we always go back they

Stephen Edwards:

somewhere in that infrastructure bill, they probably have the money to do this. You would think? Yeah, it's $1.3 trillion.

Unknown:

So did they. So that's how many feet the Lake Mead water level is right here. It's kind of interesting continues to drop it's on the top

Stephen Edwards:

question. Is there still water in Lake

Unknown:

level? Look at that shit. Look at that graph. Looks like a fucking stock chart. It looks like the market the last couple of weeks. Yeah. So yeah. Did you even see me on the speaking of the market? My fuckin stock pick which one was was Shopify and in fucking crush the past couple months, and it was it was ripping and that would have been I was a nice one. It's gone down. It's gone. It's gone. I'm

Stephen Edwards:

like a Twitter guy. Now. Let me tell you about my Shopify stock, but this shouldn't be ripping a ship here. And then when it goes down, everybody slams on yours. Like I told you Shopify Shit that damn Twitter Twitter stock lawyers

Unknown:

i know i was i was Twitter stock and I had a couple of good good picks but then also to my my sports gambling is not crushing it I thought it'd be a little bit busier once football but I'm super February's my mind this

Stephen Edwards:

the I read somewhere they said that this year just off the NFL, like where everybody has, you know, where it's been many years far easier to predict winners. This has been the most challenging year in a long time as far as like, you know, the underdogs and and the not winning like they were supposed to earn

Unknown:

so I was in a I was in a survivor league so which is that's a picker who wins on the survivor now lets you pick them each it was in football for football. So you pick each team each week between the games, you got to pick one team and then once you pick that team can't pick it the rest of the season. So so give us Tampa Bay. In the first game, you can't pick them. So I actually was in the contest all the way till week 414 that we were up and now No, we can't be a week 14 yet. People are eight and five and stuff like that. That's about we're getting damn close.

Stephen Edwards:

I mean, don't we only go to like week 17 We can't be because the Super Bowl and until February. We got a month left. We got at least

Unknown:

five we aim. 12 Okay, but yeah, I mean, that is two weeks is a little aggressive. Week. 12. Okay, it's always week 12. Week 12 as week 11 Or something like that. And you only get one strikeout, but a lot of people lost when Jacksonville won that first game. So a lot of people pick jet. You know what I mean? The team's the underdogs, and then, yeah, they got killed. And then I was 3000 people left in the contest. And then I last week, the Bucs last

Stephen Edwards:

year, they're just trying to be a Raiders fan. Just watching the Raiders.

Unknown:

I like the Raiders. And it was fun, especially the first couple of games or first weeks they want them all which was which was

Stephen Edwards:

great. And they lost their coach and one of their players and

Unknown:

they had a shit. And they had a shit couple months. You know, they had a shit couple months. What were we searching about the water? But why?

Stephen Edwards:

Why it keeps dropping? Or where's why? I mean, I get why it keeps dropping. Yeah, keep dropping in the 2022 could

Unknown:

take at least 500,000 acre feet of water a year to keep Lake Mead from tanking.

Stephen Edwards:

Like that's 100 million plan in the works to leave more water in the lake made

Unknown:

to leave more water. And we're even talking about it too. It's like you know, take longer showers because they say all your water goes back into the lake. So it's like why that's why a lot of the water levels are down because people are being more energy conscious energy efficient, right? So what you didn't know that,

Stephen Edwards:

like I know we recycle our water, but that doesn't make any sense. So people

Unknown:

so people are not washing their clothes as much because their laundry is not using as much water. Okay, okay. You don't leave the water on when you're brushing your teeth as long as I brush my teeth in the shower. Okay, but you get them saying you don't start the shower for 10 minutes to let it heat up. I still do that. Maybe you should. Yeah, my house fires and while are taking longer showers. Yeah. Okay. San Francisco declares a water shortage.

Stephen Edwards:

California basically we just need to run some water. We just need to run a couple like garden hoses on the Missouri River. The kids the kids are hitting the sprinkler on one of those electric pumps.

Unknown:

Yeah, do you have a do you have at your house? Do you have water system? Do you fuck with that? Are you What do you mean guard for like your books? Yeah, do I fuck I don't how many days a week are you watering? I think one by law. Yeah, cuz I don't remember it. Was it always been one? No. I think they turned it back. Yeah, they turn it back to three. Yeah, three in the winter five and then seven. Either six five and six.

Stephen Edwards:

I don't know. That's some bullshit as with my landscaper handles that stuff I can tell you well, but

Unknown:

when he told me to switch it back to one I told him to fuck I was like I'm just looking back. Now you've

Stephen Edwards:

Unknown:

the only thing is I had lemon oil one time and it supposed to take away headaches and it doesn't work it does instantly. That's weird instantly and also it's like meant for like hangovers or like the where we first used it was it was when we were actually in Vegas. Oh no. The next morning like at the pool you know everybody you know sun's out so like you kind of you kind of always got a next day hang headache. Drop a couple dots a lemon oil and you're back in the game.

Stephen Edwards:

I will say say that that is of all the noticeable things of like turning 41 or 40 that I noticed more than anything is that those hangovers are real. I used to never get them. Yeah, I could like, party like a rock star, I'd never feel shitty and now I'm now it's like, well, I did that. I guess I really feel like trashed. Well,

Unknown:

also 10 years ago, you weren't going to EDC. Now you are going EDC. So maybe that's good. Yeah, there's definitely,

Stephen Edwards:

I mean, definitely an element of like 40 years 30

Unknown:

Anything, anything to end the show anything need that you've seen on social media? Instagram, tick tock lately or anything? No,

Stephen Edwards:

I feel like right now, everybody. I mean, this, what a tick tock tick tock just added targeting on or like a next level targeting where you could go after? hashtags. So anybody that's searched a hashtag, you could target in tick tock, which is awesome. Yeah, it's probably not going to still be mind bending for like tourism. But it will definitely change. Like, it'll change the ability to run effective ads and

Unknown:

and also to people are going to, like, businesses are going to want you to use more hashtags. Nowadays, it's it kind of justified actually, the reason that we do use hashtags, it's how you classify stuff, right? Like,

Stephen Edwards:

and the only reason Instagram advertising actually works is because Instagram is tied to your Facebook, you know, it's all the same stuff. And that's kind of the issue you run into with tick tock is that you can have five different profiles, 10 different profiles, and it's pretty hard to target. John Smith, that's into the Vikings that's into I say the Viking into whatever, right? And how do you target that guy, where now if they let you get to the granular level of hashtagging, and I don't know, I think tick tock still got so much wheels on it that I can like, well, and we haven't even discussed yet. It'll be super interesting. What? December one when Facebook makes the switch to beta? Oh, yeah. Like that's gonna be, you know, there's so many unknowns as far as next week,

Unknown:

next Wednesday, or next Wednesday. So yeah, we'll have a podcast that day too, as well. We'll talk about it when everybody

Stephen Edwards:

like no longer knows where to go to look at Facebook, and they're like, I'm on maita whatever that means.

Unknown:

So it's I thought I thought the company was just apparent one but facebook.com Your Facebook was not changing to me. Oh, is

Stephen Edwards:

that the case? I don't know. I know the stock ticker is gonna matter.

Unknown:

Yeah, because it's it's like alphabet for Google.

Stephen Edwards:

Now the company name is eventually changing. Isn't Google Ads Hold on now? Is Facebook changing its name to Google's

Unknown:

Google's parents name is alphabet? Yes. Facebook's parent name is made up

Stephen Edwards:

formerly known as Facebook and the parent company on the NAM site as well. Interesting.

Unknown:

So that's point one.

Stephen Edwards:

Well, no, I'm trying to like somebody should keep talking. Keep talking why?

Unknown:

That's a point for Jaden is what that is. I'm positive it st positive. Love free to prove me wrong. But what I was actually, when you said retargeting hashtags, yes. Okay. Because on tick tock, realistically, you don't put in hashtags. When you're in your search bar. Is it still able to track what your the search term you're searching? Were on Instagram, and Tiktok?

Stephen Edwards:

Well, I think the idea is that people use hashtags. And then they click on them, or they use hashtags.

Unknown:

No, I know. But when you type it, you type so like I typed in, like, if I type in PC gaming, I don't know why that just showed up. Is that the one you've been googling? No, because so it's like videos, but then you click on hashtags. Do you get what I'm saying?

Stephen Edwards:

There you go. Now somebody is gonna tire. Now you're gonna see ads for your piece

Unknown:

isn't able to pick up my search bar? I don't work there. I don't know. Because like, because that's what I'm saying about Google. So Google, if you type in, I'm sure to. I mean, because technically hashtags is the same thing is what you're typing in your search bar. Technically, that's so that's what I'm saying. Has there been a way to retarget that anyways? No, I haven't. I mean, I think if I typed in Chevrolet, okay into Google, but I never clicked on the Chevrolet website.

Stephen Edwards:

Yes, if you typed Chevrolet and searched it, you could be targeted in Google. I don't know if that that's a thing. I know. I just saw their big your the like email of like, hey, now we have hashtag targeting. I haven't deployed it on any we actually, you know, my ads that I hadn't running on Vegas Jeep, they were converting, but I mean, it still doesn't even convert anywhere close to as well as like Google and Facebook. But I think on the tourism side, I think that's the challenge with it. I think it's going to get better. And if they keep rolling up, like different law Like ad manager, you know, improvements. It'll, it'll be there. I mean, what does it hold us tick tock a year old

Unknown:

year and a half a year and a half at least because

Stephen Edwards:

well, before that it was what app was it beforehand it was that a musically, musically, so probably, you know, musically didn't have an ad platform. Tick tock has an ad platform. And you know, and it's only it's probably six months old, eight months old, and you know, they basically got the framework Follow Follow Facebook,

Unknown:
