How to Reset a Tripped Breaker Episode Transcripts Expand Tyson: 00:00:14 Welcome to the social chameleon show. It's our goal to help you learn, grow, and transform into the person you want to become. We're going to do a little new series a we come up with is called up. What'd you should know about today? Things around the house. Um, I've, if you guys have been around on social media and stuff and things are maybe some of you, like I, we're looking for ideas on things you think we should know. Maybe people don't know and things that we all should know, you know, especially transitioning into being an adult or know getting your own place or things like that. Adulting. Adulting is hard, so hard. And so you don't think that'd be fun. Like I'm talking about a few different things like basic maybe skills or techniques or using different things or different ideas about, you know, things around the house to um, you know, help, you know, not have to hire a handyman or not feel, um, was that like helpless or whatever. Being able to kind of fend for yourself being self sufficient and whatnot. I mean, the goal in life and my view is um, to know how to do the things and then get to a point where you can hire people to do them for you and you can, you can focus on higher level things. So with that said, Ransom: 00:01:27 yeah. And I don't, I don't know how we picked any of these are just kind of was like thinking about like, you know, what kind of things do we know and like how, how did we come to learn about that? Like don't really know how the subject came up but that's just kinda weird, you know Tyson: 00:01:44 now that was the most interesting part when I was thinking about it, you posed this, I always do the, some of this stuff. And I was like I want, I don't, I can't think of anything. And then I woke up at like five in the morning. I had just started banging his list out and that's what I'm thinking is like, how did I learn these things? I don't even know. Like, I can't even think back to how I even know how to change a tire or change oil or you know, putting the light switch like I don't even know how I learned those things. It's just kind of when we were growing up, there was no youtube videos on how to fix your toilet. You had to, you know, go to the library and borrow a book about it or find someone that knew how to do it Ransom: 00:02:19 or just try it out yourself and hope it works out. Tyson: 00:02:23 Jesus. Yeah. That's not the one that sits still on like somebody turn off the light switch please. Oh that's funny. But let's be how. Go ahead. No, no, I was going to say this. Let's go down the list. I guess what we were talking about. So we're doing things around the house at eight though. Let's start off with some kitchen basics, right? Kitchen basics. Do you know how to use a knife? Like the proper way to use a knife? Ransom: 00:02:53 Um, I, you know, I haven't gone to culinary school. I went to school for the healthcare profession. Right. But I kinda sorta remember somewhere along the line learning it. I'm in the kitchen anyway. When you're cutting a, you basically kind of use your fingers as a guy. I don't know, it's kind of like this. It did sound or your fingernails in there to Kinda help guide your knife down towards it. So if this were the vegetable per se, this little whiteout vegetable, you kind of put your fingers on it like that and then you know, you kind of have your knife kind of come down at an angle. Sorry, I can't really hold it and do it the right way without cutting board. But. Tyson: 00:03:37 So video is a little dark in Hawaii right now. But yeah, for the audio guy. So it's just like a curling your, your, your fingertips back in like that first knuckle kind of thing. And then using the, your, your flat kind of knuckles to guide the knife down so you don't drop your fingers off, Chop your fingernails off while you're cooking, cooking food. But what about holding night? You remember how you. Did you learn how to hold a knife or you ever seen videos or anybody ever teach you their ways? Ransom: 00:04:05 Basically holding a knife. I don't really know. I mean you just watch a few movies and some of them hold it upside down with a little grip or whatever. Generally you keep the blade away from you and even just in general. I mean if you're not on a cutting board with a knife, like in general you should cut with the blade away from the body until you get skilled enough to cut in. But even then you do so with caution. Tyson: 00:04:33 Absolutely. I know there's a lot of different knife, a kitchen knife holding techniques. No, I tend to, I tend to have maybe a few fingers down onto the blade and like a lot of handles sticking out the back of my hand. They go up more maybe down the handle. Uh, I don't know, maybe a few years ago I was like, how does Gordon Ramsay, dude, it's like I want to. And you had like a good little video on youtube about how he, how he, how to chop and how to hold a knife. And I learned a lot from that even though I had been doing it for many years. But I don't. I don't know if I remember anybody ever teaching me and said, you know, Gordon Ramsay Gordon Ramsey Ransom: 00:05:11 speak it knives. I do. You know how to sharpen a knife. They're tasting. Tyson: 00:05:16 You know, I, I never knew until maybe a few years ago I went and I had bought some. Wanted to get some new licenses. You know, I really want to invest in some really good. Nice. I bought some nights as well. Now I've got to learn how to sharpen these things because we ain't know. We all know a, a dull knife in the kitchen is very dangerous. A lot of people are like, oh, the knife is really sharp. I think that's actually good. Like you're less likely to hurt yourself. The sharper your nicest. I've learned that the hard way because you ever have a donate trying to cut something that is not fun. Ransom: 00:05:49 Yeah. You're to get at the same time. I think a sharper knife is safer because can cut easier with less effort. But again, if you go back to the basics or you want to cut away from you, you want to use more pools and we're a little guide so they show up yourself with it. But um, yeah. But anyway, I'm sorry, go ahead. No, back to the sharpening story that you're talking about. Tyson: 00:06:17 No, but that's just, you know, I got the knives and then I was like, well, I read the thing how they recommend sharpening them and they recommended stones. They said for those nights I bought, they recommend no steel, no. Um, and I guess those automated or there's little little self guided ones they say are not the greatest thing to, to use. Ransom: 00:06:41 They're not. I guess for the most part if you can do it with a stone on your own, like that's, it's, believe me, it's a lot longer to do it that way, you know. But I mean, the better quality knife you have, if you want to keep that knife around, it's better to do with the stone. But you know, nowadays things are, they make things a lot replaceable. So yeah, they do make things fairly disposable. You make them a run of the mill knife. It doesn't really do well. But I have found that those automatic cutter things, they were really good unsaturated edges. Oh yeah. I mean they do kind of mess it up a little bit. But to sharpen it regularly edge, that's just a, it's a lot of work. Tyson: 00:07:25 Yeah. And I got a little round. I'm sharpening stone and I just, you know, I like to put on a basketball game or something or football game. I don't really care to be really watching or the kids are watching a movie that I don't really care to watch, but I, they want me president for it and then I'll sit there and shopping. I like shopping a stone, like go watch some really good videos. I spent a lot of time watching a bunch of different people. Uh, I watched some professional nice company they have, um, I think it was, ah, shoot, I think Korean or something like that. Um, I'll try and link the videos for you guys. They have the guys in Japan and showing how they do it and it's, it's, it's like a lot of work and it takes a lot of time to like get used to how stone works. And it took me a long time and I think this last time I shopped with my name's, uh, what's like the best I've ever done and I've been doing it for like a couple of years and it's a lot of work. But man, like those guys are like night and day when you get a good sharp knife. It's so great. Ransom: 00:08:27 Oh yeah, for sure. But I mean, it just, it just kind of like those are the things that, you know, I don't really know how I learned it. I guess I just Kinda hung out in a lot of outdoorsy folk and they just, you know, knife is a tool out there in the wilderness and can't really do too much. So Tyson: 00:08:46 I've also heard some, uh, higher end, nice stores. Um, they will do what stone Troponin for you tried it yet because I wanted to learn how to do it myself so I know how to do it. So I've made it something you're asking him to track is it is really hard to get good at and practice and it takes a lot. It does take a lot of time. But what does that metal sharpening thing called? The little spike. It's got the file on it. Oh, it's a home depot and I was like, I actually have a ceramic one. The knives, I have the global knives, they recommend not to use the metal homes so they sell a ceramic one. So I have a ceramic one that I use for my knives. Interesting. And then also the ceramic comes unscrewed so you can, once it gets worn out you just unscrew the ceramic and the rescue. Tyson: 00:09:43 Another piece of ceramic rod on. So it's actually not to, you know, throw the metal thing away and get another one. It's quite nice. It is, it is nerve wracking though because it's, it's, I don't want to. It's riddled but it is, you know, ceramic right. So I, I've had it for maybe three or four years and I haven't broken yet. So, but it's nice every time, you know, that's something that they say to do as the chef say every time you grab a knife before you start you, you hit it on the phone a few times. That techniques hard to get down to that. That's a, that's a Gordon Ramsey. I'm like, it was slow down. Like I'm like, I'm like really slowly like doing it, but it doesn't make a difference and get that kind of crisping up to the edge a little before you start cooking times. Tyson: 00:10:26 And I know, I don't know if it's this necessary for like kitchen knives and stuff like that. But I know like the old school barbers with a straight razor. Yeah, with a leather strap after that. Oh actually it's called a strop but yeah. So. But that's what you're supposed to do even at your kitchen knives. It's okay. I learned this stuff man. I spent hours of videos but yeah. But they say after you're done, I have, I don't have one yet. I was looking at a few online and whatever. Some people say just go to goodwill and get a leather belt or an old belt, cut the leather off and like tack it to a piece of wood, but you're supposed to after even if your kitchen knives, all your knives, all your, even um, a lot of guys when they sharpen their tools or axes and things like that, hatchets and stuff, he hit her, the shopping as it cleans that edge up real, real quick and real nice. Tyson: 00:11:14 I haven't done that yet. I've gotta I've gotta get one for myself. I don't even know what that's about, but I just, I see it all the time because it's supposed to polish the edge up a little. I don't know man. I don't know, but that's just like some of the things, you know, it's just like basic things in life that I don't know. I think adults should know, but some adults don't know. And even for me, it's like when you asked like, how did you learn that? It's like, I don't really know how I learned that. I think to me, the point of this series is just to familiarize yourself with these different things, so when you go, you know, maybe you're not good at these things or you don't want to, or you don't have the, the, the, the, the, the want or desire to spend the time to do it. Tyson: 00:12:01 At least, you know, when you bring your, your nights or whatever to somebody and you're like, oh, here are three shop. And he's like, Oh yeah, I got the sharpening, you know, grindr back here and like, Whoa, no, no, no, I want stones in les this, you know, the difference. There's a different type of edge and protect what thing that happens with these things. Because even I was at my grandma's sister, she needed a couple things on her own, her house and she was telling me about her car and she drives like a hundred miles a month and she'll say, oh, I got to read them at breaks and it's an that. And she's got like, she's got 5,000 miles on the car. I'm like, you don't need to do any of that stuff. She's like, oh, there is telling me at the thing, and I'm like, you don't need to do any of that. Tyson: 00:12:39 You don't drive enough to do that stuff. And I say so because I was like, let me, let me, I'll, I'll look over everything real quick and say, look at the fluid, look all this stuff. It's crystal clear. There's nothing wrong you like, you don't need to do anything. Like leave your car loan. You don't drive very much. Change your oil once a year that you'll be just fine, you know, but without having that base knowledge, you know, people can tell you things that, you know, especially if they're experts or maybe they're in a position to portray themselves as an expert and they're not, you know, you're not going to get taken advantage of or you know, do these services with different things that you don't need, you know, and you know, and I'll send it into my grandma's like, chill. Oh, we'll go. Before we had to do all these things all the time on the right, the fluids were different back then. Tyson: 00:13:23 The parts were different back then. These things were so different, the technology's come so far that you don't need to do these things as often as you used to do, you know, like my car, uh, I got coming up at 150,000 miles. I got to do nothing, you know, I had to change, um, some fluids at 100,000 miles and that was it. And I just change the oil every 10,000 miles I think else needs to be done, you know. So it's the technology and the things in the longevity's things are really a lot better now. But so having that base knowledge can help you. I mean, just grab an owner's manual. I know people are like are thrown in the garbage, but lot of times the information is there and he's engineers have spent time writing this book out and it's there for you to save yourself money and time and get us a small base in nine the knowledge. So you're aware when you're trying to do these things. Ransom: 00:14:12 Yeah, no that's true. And then even, I don't know, you kind of switched over to automobiles, but I, I kinda remember it was just an example. Yeah. Kind of like the cooking thing or whatever. Just kind of staying on that. Like now like when you boil water or something like that, like people were like adding salt to it or having the water. Right. I forget where I heard it, but they were like saying like, Oh yeah, when you add salt to water, like it makes them boil fast. Tyson: 00:14:42 Nope. Does Not prepping for this. You were like, listen, it does. And then you looked it up. I can't remember exactly. I thought it did. You asked me why. And I was like, oh, because it changes the chemical properties of water, which it does do. It actually takes longer to boil when you put salt in it, because you increased the boiling point, you know if you're going to get down to the science of it. So your water actually boils at a hotter temperature right now if you want hotter temperature water, that's the technique. But with the converse to that, maybe not even that necessarily, but another trick that to kind of demonstrate that is if you really want to chill beverages or whatever really quickly, you put ice a little bit of water and salt because that lowers the temperature of the water. It makes the water colder faster. Tyson: 00:15:39 It just lowers the freezing freezing temperature. Right. Exactly. So, but that's the same you, it's the same thing. So you've got to be careful with that, you know, and like I like to do with the water, you know, come to a boil and then I throw some salt in there because you want to, you know, sometimes you want the salt flavor or of the, of the Pasta or whatever you want in there and different things. And then I think the oil thing when you put oil in it is supposed to keep the noodles from sticking together or something like that. I've heard that. I think it's an old wives tale too. I don't do that. I went to a Italian cooking classes guy from Italy and he's like, don't do that nonsense. Put a little after you drain it, put a little olive oil on and give it a toss. Tyson: 00:16:20 Seems to work for me. It makes sense. It's like if you're trying to put the oil in the water while you're boiling it down, make it more complicated in the strainer. It's like, why don't you just put the oil in the strainer? I knew I can give her noodles flavor at the same time. Yeah, but it's like I'm, I'm sure we all remember those little experiments in elementary school and like you put a little oil in the water and what happens? It looks as if your noodles are down here to water and oil is on top. I don't know how that's going to do anything. I remember the baking Soda Vinegar and Baking Soda. Hey, that's a great way to clean out your drains. Baking soda down your drain. And then you chase that with vinegar. It would just follow them up and help clean that out. Tyson: 00:17:08 Remember the remember the volcano 70th and. Yeah. And then uh, what are the other kitchen stuff we talk about? What is that like steak, you know, how to cook steak, right? Or any meat that you need to in general, certain doneness to have done. Would you like chicken? You know, like some pork chops or whatever. You know, I, I liked him. He a good elk steak or some venison. Anybody's got a bear meat. I would be highly interested in what other creature that you had that the pig bear or something like that. What does that. Oh, the Manga Lisa Ransom: 00:17:50 pig. Sheep Hybrid. No, it's a. it's a made up animal dude. It's like a Unicorn, Tyson: 00:17:55 not a unicorn. And it's delicious. If you want to see pork liner, it looks like that's a real thing to Manga Lisa. It's delicious. It's really hard to get, but it's a pig, but the meat looks like beef. It's very interesting and it's really good. Ransom: 00:18:17 As far as the doneness goal is, I call it the thumb. The finger trigger. I don't really know. It sounds Kinda weird, but basically you take your index finger and your thumb, put them together and then you kind of feel that muscle on your phone right there to see where it's at. And then that's your, that's your rare. And then as you go down the line, right, you get a little bit more done. Middle Finger and the ring. And this is like your beef jerky. People don't ever Cook your steak. Well done. Hey. Some people just, you know, they kind of worried about all the parasites that are in there. So it's okay. I can't speak to that report. Be careful. Please cook to the recommended degrees and chicken. Even that though, that, that comes from, you know, the old days to when, because the pork tapeworm is actually a lot more harmful to you than the beef date. The tapeworm it was okay. You know, when you get a pork tapeworm, that's when you started bleeding out. It's so interesting. The interesting facts there, but if you have it a thermometer and you put it in there and it's hot enough Tyson: 00:19:31 that get yourself a good quality, you know, instant read thermometer. Um, I, I liked the, I think it's something like that. I'll link the ones I like, um, but I mean it's just real. No real quick. You can just poke a little tap and I'm no, you know, ensure you know, your, your meats cooked well or not too well or whatever you want. Um, there's different things, you know, chicken and everybody hates it. Overcooked, dried off. He's a chicken. That's just the worst. I don't know, man. I think even when you're cooking chicken on other techniques, Ransom: 00:20:02 worse, Tyson: 00:20:04 what a good technique to, um, to know when you're cooking chicken is when that starts to come out and it turns clear the chicken is done. So that's a nice little thing to, to know as well. Um, and you're cooking cooking chicken, you know, I'm sure you know, talking about and the chicken says kind of bleed a little bit. It's like this milky color and as the more it gets cooked, the liquid ones of turning a clear color, genuinely the chicken is done at that point, you know, but as you're, as you're learning, definitely get a little thermometer and you'll start to learn real quick. You know, that's what I did when I first um, started learning. I got little thermometer and I started, you know, um, like verifying like is this, is this the right doneness hit throw them under like, Yo, okay, that's where I wanted. Or No, now I can kind of touch the meat and I kinda Kinda, I can kinda tell I've, I've kind of learned over the years. Ransom: 00:20:51 Yeah, it's kind of the um, I don't know. I guess I got the whole barbecue thing too is like if you're on, if you're flipping meat on the grill, like they, I don't know, I kind of call it like a floppy tests. Sorry, while I'm calling the tongs. If you got the songs to like pick up the meat and like you grab it and it's like super fluffy and it's not really done but you can similar to how you can touch, touch it when you're on the barbecue grill, you don't really want to touch it because it's hot but you can grab it and then you can kind of give it a little wiggle. So if it like legos too much then it's like you know it's too much and then if you grabbing it and it's like your cell phone and it's just like that's just way too. Tyson: 00:21:33 Somewhere in between steak tartare beef Jerky, Ransom: 00:21:36 somewhere in between. But yeah, there's a, there's a little finesse to it too. On the grill. Tyson: 00:21:44 Did you guys grow licensed? Hot sear that meat? You know, nice little technique I like to do on the grill. I learned a reverse sear. That's pretty fun. So you have calls on one side and then the meat on the other side and you put the meat away from the coals and you let them meet, come up to temperature and then you bring them over to the coals. And you sear it, that's a really fun and you get some Nice, nice, nice. I'm like Nice doneness throughout the state. There's not a year you get a, you have a cook, a steak and it's real, um, real like real well, well done on the top and bottom parts. And then the middle is, it still may be not quite where you wanted or wherever that sent me. Kind of helps not do that because it's away from the heat. Tyson: 00:22:26 So it kind of slowly cooks on the other side and he hit it and you hit a nice, nice, good crust on it ever on the other side. It's, it's really, it's really fun to do. Interesting. There's lots of my, I mean, get on the Internet guys. There's so many great cooking shows. You know, I, I'm, I've been into subied lately for the past maybe three or four years and it's a huge, a tub of water and then you put your food in like a Ziploc bag or a vacuum seal bag and there's this little machine that keeps the water circulating and at a constant temperature and you just put food in there and you can go a few hours different things. Um, it's really easy to, you know, throw, throw a steak, a couple steaks in there, you know, go shower. He doesn't Cook it or does it defrost it, it cooks it, so it cooks it in a water bath so it's like, it's sorta like boiling it in a way, but it's in, it's in a bag so you can put your seasoning and stuff in there and he put it in the bag and then the water circulates around the meat and then once it becomes up to temperature it stays there. Tyson: 00:23:21 So you can't overcook anything. Tyson: 00:23:25 No. Really, you guys ever had a sub eat steak? Those are some of the best steaks you can have. So you bring it up to one 2135, depends on it and I like it. You take it, you hit, you hit it, it looks, it looks disgusting. We've taken out of a bag. It's got this weird like I'm kind of vacuum sealed. Kind of like flattered and stuff. As you rip it open and you hear little. Yeah, right, right, right, right. But once you hit it with a nice quick sear, you did get a really hot pan or you got a really hot grill and you just see your bolt sides real quick or they have like little blow torch you can see are the things with or whatever and you just get this steak from end to end is perfectly the same as all medium rare or whatever you like. Tyson: 00:24:13 The whole state from top to bottom is all that one done this and you just see the top and bottom. You've got a perfectly done steak. Instead of having an eighth or a quarter inch of well done on the top and the bottom in the middle, you know, being on the ends, maybe they're a little more rare or more well done than you wanted and only in the middle is it medium rare or whatever. With the subied it's really, like I said, you can throw it in there and you come home from work. You throw a couple steaks in there. I've done it from frozen. It works great from frozen as well, so you throw the steaks in, there you go. You know, you walk away, you go hang out with your kids or whatever. You go take a shower and stuff. You come back in a couple of hours and the meat is done and it'll stay there for hours ready for you when you're ready to just pull them out. Tyson: 00:24:51 Serum and dinner's done. It's like a, it's like a crock pot for, for, for uh, I got a crop that kind of way and overdo it a. and you can't overdo it. Yeah, exactly. Can't. You can't over do it now. You can leave it in there for such a long period of time that the meat really starts to break down. Um, but it's good. Uh, I've done a pork shoulder and stuff and made pulled pork, meat, Kalua pig and you just put it in the subied. All your spices. You vacuum seal it up, you put it in there. Um, you know, either if you've got to continue with the lid, he put the lid on. So keep, keep the water in evaporation down or I just, uh, I just cover it with Saran wrap and I go to bed and you know, sometimes I've done 24 hour cooks, I thought 48. Tyson: 00:25:31 Our cooks and it just comes up to that temperature, whatever it is, 150 degrees or whatever and it stays there and it just cooks and it's cooking in those juices in that bag. And I'm like a crock pot or something where you can wind up drawing out and kind of burning things. You can't do that in a cooking show going on over here. Hey, this is, these are the things I think, you know, people can try, you can, instead of having fucking door dash and pizza hut bringing dinner every night, there's great techniques, pressure cookers, but even then it's not so common here in Hawaii. I mean it's starting to catch on, but you can have people like, you know, do all the meal prep for you. Right, right, right, right, right. And that's the thing. I've, I've tried all those different little like a meal boxes. Tyson: 00:26:16 Hello fresh, I've tried blue apron. Um, I've done some other ones and it's nice because you know exactly the ingredients you need all come in the box delivered to your house from my family we have five, so the box is the most portions coming sport. So that was a little hard pressed so I stopped doing it, but the ones I, I've got hello fresh. Um, they had a little bit more food and the price is kind of fluctuated a little bit because depends on what you chose. With blue apron it was the same price no matter what came in the boss, all the boxes were the same price. But the food portions were a little bit smaller, but they did a lot better job of packaging it. So there's a little trade off between the two. I enjoy both. Um, and it was nice. It's, there's no leftovers unless you're a two person family, you get a four person, you know, then you would have leftovers, but it's nice to take lunch, you know? Right. Well, yeah, exactly. You just have a grandson, you know, you could get a foreperson meal and have four lunches for you are, you know, two dinners in two lunches for you as nice. All the, everything you need comes in the box. I think you just need a couple of staples, like some olive oil and salt and pepper and that's all you really need. Ransom: 00:27:30 Talking about portions and stuff. But like is it like portion. I don't know how to say this, but in a healthy way Tyson: 00:27:38 I would disagree with the healthiness of it. I think it's portioned in the governmental standards of healthy. Oh, okay. Okay. I think there was inner governmental standing in my opinion, and it wasn't enough. Yeah, there wasn't enough vegetables, I think. I think there could be more vegetables. Ransom: 00:27:58 That's another thing too that I'm not sure if people understand like the eating healthy. It's um. Yeah. I don't know man. It's like, Oh yeah, you did a lot of salad is it? But how might you know, you go through half a dressing bottle. Do Tyson: 00:28:11 you're throwing some, your throat, some, a wishbone thousand island over top of that. I mean, come on, that's just not to. Are you just eating iceberg lettuce and salary? You're just eating water with thousand dollars on top of it. I like to get all kinds of fun vegetables and stuff. Ransom: 00:28:30 Yeah. I'm not so sure if people understand the whole, I guess basics behind either, you know, how to correctly portion your meal. Well, I think um, I think you wouldn't want to start me on that. Back in the day that p nine dx. Oh yeah. Cool. Original program came with a diet book and that Diet book was like of balanced meal. Like it showed you like how many portions of carbs and how many portions of protein, fruit and vegetables and stuff that you needed the intake and took like your body weight into considering I was actually pretty. I mean the book was simple. It was so easy. It was like something like, as like not even. There's a couple of shifts and that was legit. That was pretty good. Um, it was a pretty good intro to like meal basics. Tyson: 00:29:22 Yeah. And I would my recommendation and then I said I only play a doctor on the Internet. I'm not one in real life. Um, but my, my, my recognition would I like to do for me and my family is, let's call it 80 percent vegetables, all kinds of different vegetables and then 20 percent a protein, whether it's fish or heavy starches, Ransom: 00:29:42 I guess in cruise, in the walls, Tyson: 00:29:45 the vegetables, starchy eat, whatever. But um, I try to limit the rice and the white potatoes and things along those lines. The Pasta, I like to try and buy. Um, if I do buy pasta, I like to try buy a vegetable based pasta. So it's like all made with spending ages in squashes and different things like that. Ransom: 00:30:06 Be careful with some of those too, but yeah, Tyson: 00:30:09 right. I figured if I'm going to have some. At least there's some spinach powder mixed into it. It's not necessarily horrible. Ransom: 00:30:16 Yeah, per se. And then like when we talk about pasta too, we're not talking about like a cup of noodles and. Oh God, please don't eat that. Tyson: 00:30:26 I know, I know. It's hard. I don't know Ransom: 00:30:30 man. Believe me. Vienna sausage, a cup of noodles. Tyson: 00:30:34 We've been. I've been there. I mean, hey robin cents, ten cents a pack. I mean it's hard to. It's hard to pass it up. It's hard, hard, hard. But the thing you got to understand about when you eat that type of food, you actually eat more food so it actually winds up costing you the same or more. If you were to eat a healthy diet. And that's the argument, like, well it's so cheap to eat this stuff sick. Right? But you know how many hot pocket you're going to eat versus a steak. You're going to be way more fully nutrition. Having a steak and it's the same price as the whole box of hot pockets, which are gonna eat the whole box of hot pockets and not be full, you know. So you gotta you gotTa, you gotTa understand Ransom: 00:31:16 I'm not, I didn't study to be a doctor but I went into the health study that health care's themes and stuff. You kind of have to find out like what your body actually needs, right? You're eating Mcdonald's all the time. You find yourself hungry after Mcdonald's. It body's not necessarily telling you to eat more McDonald's. It just needs more sustenance. Nourishment, right. I mean if it needs steak and you give it vegetables, like you're still going to be hungry after you eat the vegetables because it wants to protein right. To me Tyson: 00:31:46 or sometimes you must the minerals in there as well. Ransom: 00:31:49 Yeah. And it's just kinda like, you know, just because you're hungry, it doesn't mean you have to eat more of what you have. Sometimes you have to eat a different source of nutrition because that's what your body actually needs. Tyson: 00:32:00 Yeah. Sometimes you just. Sometimes you're, your body's telling you you're hungry, but really what it wants his water. So you know, sometimes when you're hungry, try that, you know, get a nice glass of water down and sometimes you're like, your hunger will go away, not because you're full of water because your body actually wanted the water. Ransom: 00:32:18 Yeah. You know, everybody's different. Everybody has different work intake and all of that is all different. Now you got some people who are allergic to certain foods. You can't eat those types of certain foods or you know, you have some type of allergic reaction. Um, you know, just be careful, you know, and even though say like they lose weight on the ACC and diets, Atkins Diet or all those kinds of things, or you know, the Keto Diet or whatever diet you're going on, just to understand that those diets do work for some people, but they don't work for all people. So Tyson: 00:32:55 yeah, definitely if you're going to trial on this, things work with your healthcare professional, your doctor, your family practitioner, whatever. Um, there are a percentage of people were killed. Diets are horrible for you. It can mess with your cardiovascular system if some people they don't respond well to vegetarian and Vegan diets, you know, different things. So just be careful with your doctor on those things and um, there's lots of people that are using technology and different things like that. Take your blood work and different stuff to and eliminating. Ransom: 00:33:25 Yeah. Seeing what's in your genes. It's kind of like the new thing too, right? Tyson: 00:33:30 Exactly, exactly. But you know, learning all these things. Some you guys can get in the kitchen, you guys can be making these foods. It's not hard getting, you know, watching a couple of videos I like, like I said before, it masterclass, Gordon Ramsey's got a nice little thing on there and all the kitchen basic techniques, cooking things, how to chop things, how to, how to blanch vegetables and how to debate things. Just getting that core set of skills. It's really great. You're going to save yourself and just a ton of money, but you're gonna be able to eat so much better and so much healthier. The biggest thing that I found when I started, you know, getting better quality Bhattar and these different things like that. The simplest foods taste so much better with something as simple as just changing out your, your, your margin or your crop, you know, whatever the country crock for like kerrygold butter or something like that. It's just a world of difference in the way food tastes. Ransom: 00:34:27 Yeah, for sure. But I think we talk enough about the kitchen does. Tyson: 00:34:31 Let's move on to another room in the house, either on the house. Dude. What about when the kitchen comes out the other end? We all have that toilet and they start running and making those little noises and stuff. How do we get that to stop? Ransom: 00:34:48 Um, I, I don't know, I think we had this conversation. You were like, what? What were you trying to tell me? Like you lift up the tank or something Tyson: 00:34:56 that's completely different. Totally runs the lid off and I'm like, what's going on in here that I need to fix? And you were like, Ransom: 00:35:09 yeah. So I guess for those of you that if you don't know what's in your toilet tank or how toilet runs in general, there's a little floater device. So there's the tank has to fill up to actuate this floater device. Tyson: 00:35:24 Your tank is filled with water. That back piece on the back of your tank. Ransom: 00:35:28 Yeah. And, and with that, like there's a little flap that seals off the drain in the tank. So the toilet tank Tyson: 00:35:38 can fill itself in. The floater can stop the water. But in essence if your toilet keeps running after you flush it, it's more than likely going to be that flat. Like almost 90 percent of the time. Steph flap just doesn't sit right and seal. So for me, you know, I guess that's just the upholder in me. Like I just want to get the job done. I don't need to see if they need any data like Tyson, Mr. question over it. I don't need to see what's in the toilet. I don't need to know what's going on 90. I know 90 percent of the time it's going to be that flat. Just grab the handle and you kind of jiggle it a little bit, not to the point where you flush it, but just one of them typically it just a little bit to kind of receipt that flap like 90 percent of the time that I'll get this one. Tyson: 00:36:18 It stopped running and then after a jiggle the handle a couple of times. If it doesn't then I will open up the tank to look at here. I'm not just going to dive straight into the tank. Wait right off the bat. Maybe that's crazy. I must say after hearing your your thing. I'm going to change my technique to flicker the flap and then if need be I'll go into data collecting mode. Alright man, I, I'm glad I could. Glad I could help you out there. Those of you listening, if that helps you out too. I'm grateful. Grateful. If we'd gone through all those steps and you've determined that, that, that, that rubber flap has um, has gotten old and deteriorated a, you can easily go to Walmart, target, Amazon. I'll probably send it to you and just get the little kit. It's super easy to change that stuff. Tyson: 00:37:08 I don't need to be intimidated. Don't hire a plumber, you know, for 100 bucks an hour. You can easily go on youtube and watch a thing if you follow the instructions on the package. I've done it many a times. I never knew how to do it until I read the instructions. Really easy to change those components right out and, and they'll feel proud about yourself that you can handle that, you know, Girl Guy, you know, a handy or not super easy skills to learn. Um, save yourself a few bucks. You can get a, you know, something more enjoyable out of life. All right, so. So when, when you're st clogs, do you like go down there and like I take everything off and looked the drain guy. I know in my house I've got two girls and especially my wife, she's got a lot of hair and it's like a lot of hair now you've got a lot of hair. Tyson: 00:37:57 I'm envious of all people with hair don't have much left, but I'm cool with that. It goes anyhow. I'm generally in my house. What happens is the, um, the stopper that, that you pull up and down for the sink, the hawks distinct to political with water generally that's a wrap with a bunch of hair and I just, I just take that out and I undo all the hair from that. I like to get, um, like a long, a really long nose needle nose pliers and then stick that down there and grab, grab the hair and you can just easily pull that cog right out and it just flows right out if need be. I have, I have gone that night and taking the same. So when you look under your sink, what it looks like is a, is a you. So it's a little trap to help at. Tyson: 00:38:45 What it does is the u shape is there so that the gases and stuff from the sewage line doesn't come back up through the pipe. So usually that you shake or something, there's something caught in there or whether or there's a buildup of, of soaps and paraffins and stuff that coat the pipe and get built up. Most Times you can just unscrew those pretty easily. Nowadays I'm in my house is a little bit newer. They're just, um, they're like little handles on those things. You don't even need wrenches, you just unscrew them and as things come right off, you can just go in there, clean that thing right out and your sink will be back to normal. You can also try, like I said earlier, some baking soda, just dump some baking soda down the drain and then chased out a little bit of vinegar and that'll kind of help bubble some things out of the way. Tyson: 00:39:28 It's going to quite get rid of hair, but no getting rid of hair. But if there's a debris debris but like build up and something there to help kind of throw out some of the buildup, the buildup. You got females and you've got long hair. It's probably hair caught around the um, the stopper. Yeah. And then that if you don't have the stop or you know, like I have an older house and like customers that completely con, like the Harris probably going to be in that drain part, but they got a lot of products you can buy like a little mesh screen. Yeah. Preventive maintenance on your kitchen sink. And also a little sink. A little thing is called like a, a shower. Shroom. I don't know if you've seen that little plastic cap that the chain on it? No, do it. It's like a little plastic. Tyson: 00:40:14 It looks like a little plastic cap with holes in it right inside your drain. And they got him for sinks too. Oh, those are just like little hair filter. So as the hair goes down, it'll collect on the showroom. Then you just threw them out and then just unwrap all the hair on it and just put a lot back in. Oh that's interesting. Joshua just, you know, little simple preventive maintenance for nothing around the house. If the drain is clogged. My hair all the time. Yeah. And you know, save yourself 50 a hundred bucks, you know, it'll take just a few minutes and just clean it most times his hair and just clean it out real quick. And if you're um, you know, you guys have short hair or you don't really anybody in your house as long here as a bunch of males or whatever, just try, try a little baking soda and vinegar, try to stay away from the drain hose. Tyson: 00:41:04 Different types of those products. They really, really, really toxic and corrosive. They can kind of, they can do some more damage to your drain system at times. Right. And then when it goes to the water collection facility and stuff, it really is, you know, harmful in, in our, in our water period, you know. But those things are usually really simple. And like I said, it's really easy to take. Take that u shape off, you know, put a little bucket under there, a little tub or something like that. Well what an honor. What as far to say is it's easy if you have a little mechanical aptitude, I'd say it's easy to do. What I'd like to do, I take pictures of it before I mess with it, or you can watch a youtube video first for sure, but actually even the, you know, even if you're not a handyman type or mechanically inclined, it's simple to learn a lot of times. Tyson: 00:41:56 Like I said, nowadays you don't even need any wrenches at all. I'm not trying to discourage people. I'm just saying making it sound like it's like it's easy for somebody who just has like no metallic mechanical aptitude whatsoever. And that's, I feel like he's done some into, I don't know how I learned them and my wife tells me, you know, all those things just come easy to you. And I'm like, well, maybe they do. I don't know. Yeah, I don't know. I mean, but definitely if you watch a youtube video you can say to yourself, hey, I can do that. Or maybe I should call it over for it, but you know, what, try it. And if you fail, I was messing with my. When I first moved into this house, um, I put in my nest thermostat and I never had this type of air conditioning system before, so I went outside to the circuit panel and hit the circuit panel outside, not knowing that there's a separate switch in the addict for the air conditioner and I, when I installed the nest thermostat I had blown the fuse up in the attic and hook everything back up. Tyson: 00:43:03 I turn everything on. I was like, why is the air conditioner not working? And I spent a few days trying to figure it out. I took the air conditioner part up in the attic. I don't recommend that, but I was like, what's some things, there's got to be a here. I must have blown, you know, also around I couldn't find it, so I had to call the air conditioning guy to come out and diagnose it. And then he just goes and he liked, moves the wire to the side and he's like, oh, he pulls a few music blown. I'm saying I was looking for that for three days. He's like, yeah, it's kind of hidden. It's like, hard to find this, you don't know about it. I was like thanks. And I was like, oh, how much for this, for this lesson and air conditioning is like 50 bucks. Tyson: 00:43:39 I'm like, sounds good. Thank you. But now I know where that abuse is and what I need to do that cost me 50 bucks. I broke it. I had somebody show me how to get it back to normal. We're good. Cost me 50 bucks for like a dollar seventeen cents fuse. Yeah. All right, that's cool. So don't be afraid to try things. You know, I break things every day. I've got to call customer service or maintenance and um, you know, have to walk me through how to fix it or what did I do? So for sure. But uh, same thing with the tubs. You guys checked the hair in the tub, you know, not timesin simple, you know, pull out a hairball. Yeah, yeah, I definitely think so. Uh, what about other things in our sort of all. I mean, as silly as it sounds, I've dabbled in real estate and property managers, but you know how to change a light bulb, you know, that can get kind of complicated. Tyson: 00:44:37 Some of these light fixtures, those coppers and stuff on them. You've got to juggle with them and just a little more tilt dumb or like how many screws to undo that, you know. Yeah, that's true. I mean there's a different amount of. There's so many different light fixtures and they have, some of them have that little chain thing. Right. We got to pull it off and then like, let me get it completely off. So you can like access the light. Yeah. Somebody's gotta press the secret button on the side. So yeah, there's lots of Nice. Um, I would say like, like everything just kind of look around and you see little screws or something you got to maybe on do those. Maybe there's caps or something, a plate or something covering the screws or the mechanism. Take it out, like changing light bulbs. Not intimidating. Tyson: 00:45:30 I know I talked to people, they're like, they're words, they're going to get shocked. Yeah. It, in order to get, you've got to really do a lot of weird things to get yourself shopping light socket and really it doesn't really hurt. It says the guy is shocked. And so I, I shocked myself many times. Remember this thing with a bug Zapper, like for some reason we shot. That's worse. Lot out letter. Not the outlet, but when you go to change outlet, if you don't turn the breaker off that you used to get a light buzz, but you know, if you've got a light bulb is broken off, like the bowl cover broke. Yeah, could get shocked me. She said switches off and if it's dark we'll get a flashlight or something. Hopefully you guys have around the house, but you can get um, like a little towel or you can get like a potato or something like that and you can stick it into the light bulb to help turn it out. Tyson: 00:46:26 All right. I really, it does work. I just get buyers and I just have this also keep in mind that, you know, light bulbs to conduct electricity. So if you're handling the light bulb after it's been on for like 30 minutes, it's more than likely going to be warm. Just yes sir. Are you aware of that? Uh, you know, again, it might be common knowledge, but there might be some people out there who don't know. Common knowledge is not common practice and no. Oh. And then what about like fluorescent lights? A lot of people think like when the light goes out it's the bowl, but for those like 70 percent of the time or not even at 70, 50 percent of the time, it's the balance. I would say it's a good now. So if you have fluorescent lights, like in my walk in closet I have a lot of times you just kind of go to the top of the light and you just kind of peel back that plastic a little and it comes off that track and it, the thing that we do, they're completely come off or sometimes it's hung on by a chain and if you look up at the light and you see towards the end I'm usually the cap is green or something like that. Tyson: 00:47:28 Or whatever. It'll be black. If you see that black, they're inside the light bulb. The light bulb is burned out for sure, but now if you look at the light bulbs and you don't see the black, then what they call the ballast. So it's like the power inverter transformer thing in the light that is burned out. Yeah, those are super easy to change. I'm sure youtube video or to a, familiarizing yourself with it, get the tools you need are really quite simple to change on the readily available at home improvement stores. Um, give it a whirl. Ransom: 00:48:01 Yeah, for sure. And it's balanced. I had a hard time spelling it when I was googling it, but a, b as in ball, a l, l Tyson: 00:48:08 a s t as in Thomas Ballasts. Yeah, absolutely. And you know also with those light bulbs be, you know, if you have some older light bulbs, they do contain mercury, so please, you know, dispose of them properly and don't. If they do break, try not to breed that area until it disappears. Ransom: 00:48:29 They do have the gases that are, that are kind of the. Most of the ones nowadays, they'll have the little plastic sheath or plastic coating on it, so yeah, I'd be managed to break it. It kind of stays clean Tyson: 00:48:41 and I say, hey, if you're changing them out, go get some led ones. Was led ones are really nice and you don't have to worry about it again. Yeah, and you can guarantee you if that doesn't work. It's not the led light bulbs for a long time, but they're really inexpensive. I bought a pack of a Costco for 20 bucks a led fluorescent style. Light bulbs are much, much better light. So you don't get that flickering and stuff from it. Ransom: 00:49:08 Yeah. And again, I don't know who's out there listening to this video and we might have somebody who just doesn't know about these kinds of things, but you know, just make sure your light fixture is plugged into the wall and has a power source of some kind. And then for again, because I live in an older house, you know sometimes, or I should say most of the times it's going to be the bottom outlet that's attached to the light switch. So if you have a light switch on the wall that doesn't actively turn on a light in your house, sometimes those light switches in the on position will activate an outlet that and sometimes it only activates, like the bottom outlet, like a top outlet will work all the time, but the bottom outlet will only work if you turn the light on. So some of those kinds of things are a little troubleshooting for people. But then again, we'll some warm up Tyson: 00:49:55 and, you know, it's interesting, I never seen before until I got this house, um, the outlets in this house that we're connected to a light switch, we're upside down. Okay. That's pretty clever. Yeah. They Kinda, they let you know that way, right? Yeah. Yeah. It's interesting to go around and turn them into a outlet. I have to go turn them around, but that's another thing that happens. Um, you know, and then I like the smart light bulbs, smart light bulb. There are a lot of fun. Yeah, exactly. Hey Google, Google and take it easy with that. What I have in my living room, I have the smart lights and they're on a schedule that go with the sun as it's actually a dark at night. The light gets a little different, a little more yellow. There's fun. Um, but you know, if you've got wife, you know the Wifi goes down. Tyson: 00:50:57 Sometimes the lights don't, you know, don't work so well. I mean they can still turn them on and off, but you're not going to get all the fun features and stuff like that. And you know, you got to make sure that from work stays updated and it's, it's really kind of funny sometimes. Wait a minute, you need a software update for your light bulbs. You know, that even sound right for updating software. That's what I see when I want to remember what I was doing. I was, my mom was like, what's wrong with the light? And I was like, oh, that's, it's doing a software update. She thought you're just being a smart ass. Yeah. She's like, no, no. Really? I was like, no, the light bulb. Look, it's getting a software update right now. Just give it a minute. Your light bulbs are getting software updates. Tyson: 00:51:42 I'm like, yeah, but they add some new features and they tweak the settings a little and different things and and stuff. I think the great and wonderful and hey, guess what? They changed just like regular light bulbs. You just unscrew and screw him in. There are a lot of fun. Don't forget the Wifi and the software update though. We need to download the APP most times and then log in and you can set it all off components because if you don't have, I mean, I'm sure with these smart lights are smart enough to work on a switch, but it do, they know I might be assuming things they do, but you just don't get any of the features in the. She'll come up to the, to the Wifi. But if your wife networkers will go down and there's a storm or something like that. Yes. Tyson: 00:52:20 The lights new still turned on and off. Um, but you just lose the uh, the features are interesting, but they're fun. I mean, I, I'd say get them super easy to change. If you're going to get a new light bulb I'm in, there's fun, uh, you can put them in movie modes and music modes and discos and there's a holiday themes, um, a, a halloween one is spawned, it flickers in and you get the orange and it's, they even have a like hook them up to your ipod or whatever, or they listen to the music. Just willing to the beat and have your own little rick [inaudible]. Tyson: 00:52:54 I have my, my labels like that. You can set it onto the music mode and it'll go to the beat of the music. It's pretty fun. The kids enjoy it. Sweet. Don't be afraid guys. Get on there. Change Your light bulbs. Those leds in there though. Some smart light bulbs are super easy to change. Most times the hard part, like I said, is getting that cover off. Just it a little bit. You'll, you'll figure it out. Interesting. And then, I know you were talking a little bit about news is a day like, I don't know if people really know about fuses or the Ransom: 00:53:25 breaker box in general. Tyson: 00:53:28 So what fuses are, is it's like a little circuit that's in between two power sources and if there's a surge or some, something goes wrong and the power's coming through too hard, it'll, it'll break that either it's a little piece of metal that'll snap or um, um, there's a panel on your house with the breaker. It'll just kind of pop and it'd be like in the middle position will be kinda beyond. We'll be off and that's just generally to, to help, um, help things from catching on fire, whatever, or getting a power Ransom: 00:53:59 safety reasons. Yeah. Days even to, um, especially with the newer houses, they have these things called Gfi outlets and they're usually near any water sources in either slash or in your kitchen, outdoors or in your bathrooms. So those are outlets. Like if you ever wonder why, you know, for some reason your hairdryer doesn't work, just kind of look at the outlet. And then if you look at the outlet, it'll say like reset around. Basically you just hit the reset button on there and then like a hairdryer will work again. It just means you, you, you trip the breaker, right? That's right there inside your your socket. Tyson: 00:54:38 Yeah. You overload that outlet or whatever. Same thing in kitchen, you know, trying to put your blender and is not working. Find the one in your, in your kitchen and, and if you have an older house and you don't have those Gfi outlets and you need to go find the electrical panel. So it's generally, you know in mine is outside of my yard, the laundry room, common places. Sometimes they're in the kitchen, right? So just look around your house, familiarize yourself with where it is and it's like a little looks like a kind of like a medicine cabinet and it's got a little metal metal, a little door on it usually just kind of lifted the plastic handle little and the door was swinging open and you'll see everything in there. If you had a nice electrician, they'll neatly labeled everything. Not you might have to do some troubleshooting. Turned a bunch of lights on in the room. You flick a switch and see what happens. Ransom: 00:55:30 Yeah. And usually on the, as you open up the door handle or as you opened up the door on the door, we'll have the schematic of this breaker goes to the bathroom. This proposed, it depends, right? Right. Absolutely. Yeah. Tyson: 00:55:45 And so yeah, if you go, if you go in there and then that when you just looked at the panel, everything will be generally all into the, on position and if one is kind of in the middle, that's the breaker that it pumped per se. It just got overloaded and it as a safety precaution it, it took us up to the middle. You just use, go ahead and flick that, um, either you know, over the off and then back onto. Sometimes you can just go right to the on position. Ransom: 00:56:11 So you actually have to take it all into the off position and then move it back to the on position. Right. Tyson: 00:56:19 Like I said, if you're, if you're, if you're scared or you're intimidated, um, I looking at that can be intimidating and just like, what is all this? Check the youtube video real quick and see how it is. It's, it's not scary. You just go on off now if the thing on the other end of that thing that was plugged in or whatever, there could be some danger there. Just be aware that when you add power back to that they can save your computer files on your computer before you should have said I got. But just, um, it's, it's a good rule of thumb if you have somebody else around to say, Hey Stan here, I'm going to go back and tripped and flip the breaker back and then, you know, things can happen. There's a reason that tripped, you know, maybe there's that appliance or whatever is faulty and it could be overdrawn power. Just be careful. There is a reason that happened. Ransom: 00:57:13 But yeah, I mean in general, the breaker box as safe, as long as you're not opening things, please, please don't unscrew things. You, you can die very quickly in the household. It's not so bad. But I remember working at one of my jobs, like we went to like the circuit breaker for the entire building. I was like, um, I was looking at the maintenance guy and I was like, so we're going to draw straws to see who flips that breaker back on, like, that's scary. Like it's for old buildings and you're just like. I was like, how many? I was like, I don't even know what the voltages on that thing is. Scary dude who's like, all right, well for your house it's not, shouldn't be that scary. Right, right, right, right. Tyson: 00:57:56 Just want me to just touch the plastic, you know, try not to be, just don't mess with it, just flick it on and off. You're fine. Or if you need to do something, you need to change out your washer dryer. It's always a nice precaution to go out there and turn those off. You, you're putting on this scope in or something like that. It's nice to cautious about there and hit the, hit the off position. There'll be scared of turning them off and then back on. Ransom: 00:58:19 And I guess this talking about cutoff vowels and stuff too, for um, they also have them for plumbing. So yes, some of the good questions that are aware of the main water shut offs for your unit, there may or may not be one that you have to shut it off to the whole building, but usually if you're in your own house or whatever, your house will have its own shutoff bow. And then same thing with the toilets. You know, if you look underneath the toilet and underneath your sink you should have some type. I shut off valves going there as well. Tyson: 00:58:52 Yeah, usually it's a little silver oval handled. Ransom: 00:58:56 Yeah. You got to cut. If you got a commercial one or whatever, it'll be like a little 90 degree, right turn and stuff like that. So just in general, again, things around the house, like anytime you deal with the electricity or water, these things, if they run rampid they can tend to cause some damage. So you know, they do have little shut off systems throughout the house where turn off the breaker to cut off the electricity to one part of the house. And same thing with the water, you can turn off the water to a specific Fawcett and or tub are seeing and if you can't find where the water is leaking from, there should be a main shut off valve to the house and slash or condo that you're in. Tyson: 00:59:39 Angle familiar, familiarize yourself with where that is generally in a in house, it's clearly marked outside is either a metal or plastic lid and it says water whatever. City or county or some friends their own stuff. Ransom: 00:59:54 Or at least here in Hawaii some of them are in like the little. It's like a little concrete cylinder. Yes. And then you just know they're not always plastic, but Tyson: 01:00:04 yes. And those are plastic or metal. I'm just are always clearly marked with water and open it, open it up. Don't be scared. Watch for critters. Sometimes there could be snakes or rats or scorpions or wherever you live. Ransom: 01:00:19 Yeah, it's a mongoose. Firstly the moms goodness, but I'm sure it's possibly. Well, yeah. You know things around the house. You three guys. Yeah, for sure. Definitely. Anything else you can think of it as kind of just went through a long list of things. They just wanted to catch the kind of like a lot of things there. But uh, Tyson: 01:00:44 yeah, just familiarize yourself with these things. Don't be scared of them. Be Cautious, be. Don't be reckless, but there's nothing to be scared about. 90. I would say 90, 95, 99 percent of time. It's perfectly fine if you fuck up, it's okay. You can just call it a professional but. And then you can talk to them and say, hey, why did I fuck up here? How did I do this? Or like, oh, there's this nuance thing where I see this problem. All the timer, this rails a lot and people don't realize it. You know, I'm a professional so I see it a lot. And next time you'll know, yeah, for sure I didn't want to. Professional comes in, they're not going to pull the wool over on you and say, Oh, you need to do this and this. And you're like, no, no adult that familiarize myself with these things and I know that you're just trying to upsell me on things I don't necessarily need. Ransom: 01:01:29 That's true. All right, well hey man, I think that's a. So we had everything we wanted to hit today. I guess so Tyson: 01:01:37 I think so. Is there anything else that you want to do and things around the house that we haven't hit? Ransom: 01:01:42 Uh, no, but I just think I'm just want to let people know out there that it's probably going to be an ongoing series, um, things you should know about. I just kind of let us know in the comments and, or hit us up on whatever social media sites you guys have and give us some feedback.

It's kind of thing that's where we're headed with this. Tyson: 01:02:13 Yeah, we got a pretty long list. Uh, not only do it, once we came up with, I got a bunch of great responses from, from you folks out there are friends and fellow fans.

Tyson: 01:03:45 I do need you to familiarize yourself with these things around the house. Get a knife in your hand, practice chopping and holding it. Well, it's not sharp. Try and sharpen it. Whatever. Whatever you have. If you've got some, I'm a little bit more expensive, nicer recommend either learning how to shopping with whetstone or finding a professional, you know, don't be scared, be be safe. They'll be scared of these things, you know, find, find out where your, your, your breaker panel is by not wearing your water meter is, you know, find out these things around your house. Um, don't, don't be shy to take apart a little bit of the plumbing if you don't get it back. It's okay. Familiarizing yourself with these things, get to know them, and then, um, when, when, when you get a little bit further on in your life or if you, if you want to spend time doing other things, you can hire professionals and you're going to know what they're doing and they're doing a good job if they're doing it correctly and all these different types of things. So I challenge you to familiarize yourself with these simple things around the house and an upper level up your game a little bit. Ransom: 01:04:52 No, so I guess I'll take it off with the final thoughts from here. It's like today's final thought. I'd probably just like to sum it all up to curiosity. Don't get focused on how curiosity killed the cat, but a little curiosity is how we all got started. Just to kind of remember as children, right, you're always curious, oh daddy, how does this work? Mommy, does this work Tyson: 01:05:18 or not? It's just kind of like, show me this and show me that, and that's kind of what we try to want to focus on. The more curiosity you have to inquire about things, that's kind of what gets your knowledge base up. We've got to practice that. Get that out there and I think that's it. Anything else you got Tyson? No, I will try to link some of my favorite youtube videos and different resources for you guys so you guys can start learning these things at least at least initially watching these videos and you're getting familiar with them. You missed. You know, what it looks like and how it's supposed to go. So if you don't want to tackle it and you a professional comes in, you can look at them and say, wait a minute, you're doing extra things I don't need you to be doing or you're doing something funky. Tyson: 01:06:01 I'm not being paranoid, but I'll link a bunch of things for you guys to start learning. Start familiarizing yourself with that and if you think that this could help somebody that you know that should know about these things, it doesn't. Maybe they want to learn, maybe they want to try it. Maybe you think they should. They should get those skills.
