Joe Biden is a One Term President #ThatFellaDownUnder, Aukus, and Nuclear Powered Submarines for Australia

That Fella Down Under Floor Pillow by TET. Click Here for T-shirts and more... Overwhelmed by the historic nature of announcing a trilateral security partnership with Britain and Australia, called Aukus, in which the US is going to share nuclear technology that will help Australia create a multibillion-dollar fleet of nuclear-powered submarines, President Joe Biden clearly forgot our Prime Minister's name. Fortunately he improvised with "that fella down under" and nobody noticed his momentary brain fart. Or so he probably thought. Far from being offended, I'm sure many Australians remember fondly a time when Scott Morrison's name was synonymous with the statement "I think he's the Treasurer?" Nobody could actually be sure as the revolving door on who was leading the country at that time was still moving at quite a pace. "That fellow down under," Scott Morrison To be fair, I'd struggle to remember the name of a man who's biggest ac

How to Start From Nothing - a Video by Sorelle Amore Finance About Starting Any Kind of Business

Sorelle Amore. It's the million dollar question for many people wanting to start a business who feel they don't have the knowledge, money, skills, time, or all four, "How do I start from nothing?" If that's something you want to know too then the video below by  Sorelle Amore , an Australian photographer and social media entrepreneur success story, who is most known for literally writing the book on how to take an #AdvancedSelfie, has an answer well worth considering. Just in case you feel advice from a professional selfie photographer couldn't possibly be meaningful Sorelle's journey to financial freedom in just two years is well worth looking into. One takeaway for me is that at age 28 she was broke, but turned things around and was a millionaire by age 30. While that's an exceptional result of quite a lot of hard work, writing books, building courses, and more, what it says to me is, it's possible to be financially secure in less than two years

Elon Musk's Tesla Bot, Boston Dynamics Atlas, and Disney Imagineering's Baby Groot, Need to Get Together

The Tesla Bot. Elon Musk recently launched a robotics concept, the Tesla Bot, that would've been amazing except it was little more than that, a concept. As of writing this there is very little information on Tesla's website about the project, and Elon himself didn't really elaborate much in his very awkward launch presentation. I'm pretty sure he was winging it given how bad it was. However he did say they expected to have a prototype in about a year. While the concept definitely has its critics (who see humanoid robots as highly inefficient), the general idea is to create a robot that can adapt to and perform any task an actual human could do. Not unlike the robots in the movie iRobot . I don't doubt that, if anyone can make something that looks like the Tesla Bot concept, it's Tesla and Elon Musk. Tesla has been working on artificial intelligence (A.I.) systems for quite some time, most notably in their development of self driving cars. While their autonomous

Movie Review: Free Guy (2021) *Spoiler Free*

When I first saw the trailer for Free Guy over a year ago (a month or so before the worldwide pandemic hit) I thought it looked a lot of fun. Then when films started opening in cinemas again, after having their release dates pushed back a year or more, I thought Free Guy was the movie that would most likely get people going back to the movies. Though it was never really tested, since other movies have opened before it during the pandemic, it is doing particularly well at the box office with a strong second week's takings (where most other films have experienced quite large drops in the second week). I'm speculating but I think Ryan Reynold's ability to market anything, including this film, in a way that you look forward to watching his campaigns, has brought people in, then word of mouth on how fun the film is, has been working well. The film centers on Guy (Ryan Reynolds), a non player character (NPC) in a violent video game world, who doesn't actually know he's i

TET Skateboards: Not Skateboarding for Seven Months - YouTube Channel Update Video

TET with Monkey Pizza Lifeline Skateboard. It's been a long time since I posted any video to my Extraordinary Tourist YouTube Channel . Approximately seven to eight months. This is because a year or to back I pivoted the channel into documenting my skateboarding progress, relearning my former skills, and then stopped skating due to pain occurring in both my feet. In the channel update video below I go into it in more detail but the short version is, I started to get pain in the top of both my feet, probably due to ongoing impact stress of skateboarding rather than any specific injury, coupled with very sharp, momentary pain between my toes of my back, 'pop', foot. I decided it was probably best to rest both my feet by not skateboarding for a while. While the pain was ongoing it didn't affect my ability to walk, only skateboarding seemed to aggravate it. I didn't expect to be not skating for this long. While my front foot has healed completely, my back, 'pop'

Pearl Gibbs, Australia's National Day, and the Australian Indigenous Civil Rights Movement

Pearl Gibbs, 1901-1983. Photo: State Library of New South Wales It's increasingly disappointing to me just how much Australian Indigenous history I don't know. For example, if you were to ask me who Rosa Parks is, I'd be able to tell you she was an American, Black Civil Rights activist who is most known for refusing to give up her seat on a bus to a white person back in the 1950s. However, if you were to ask me who is Pearl Gibbs , until very recently, I would've given you a blank stare. If it weren't for Google, honoring her 120th birthday (18 July 2021) with a Google Doodle during this year's NAIDOC Week (typically held in July annually as a celebration of the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.), I'd still be non the wiser. While Pearl Gibbs doesn't have a single defining moment of her activism that would shoot her to national fame, like Rosa, non the less, she was equally as active in the civil rights

Vaccinated Michael Rosenbaum Gets COVID-19 Highlighting the Importance of Vaccines Alongside Other Anti-Virus Practices

Michael Rosenbaum, Inside of You Podcast . Michael Rosenbaum, who you may be more familiar with in his role as Lex Luthor on the TV Series, Smallville , but is currently making a name for himself with his podcast, Inside of You with Michael Rosenbaum , recently announced that he had caught COVID-19. The reason I bring this up is that he had mentioned previously on his podcast that he was fully vaccinated. Now I'm not pointing this out to say vaccines don't work, they do, they're just not an absolute guarantee that you can't still carry the virus, or get sick from the virus. Michael is a relatively high profile example. In a previous post, Lower Your Expectations, COVID-19 Vaccines aren't a 'Cure All' , I highlighted that vaccines are just another line of defense against the virus. They don't make you immune to being a carrier or from experiencing symptoms. However, if you do experience symptoms, they should be less severe, and it's less likely you&#
