Erik and Rachels First Date! w/ Rachel Ballinger // RELAX #117Jul 15, 2023
That idea. Yes, some Apple engineer I know is hearing it said like that. remove, remove the hole then they have to work give them an upgrade destroy their current phone yeah that's what's happening to me now sorry what do I need to chill with you uh when was the last time you used a water fountain? um, for my dogs I use them in the parks, but other than I don't use them, specifically, um, as an environmentally conscious person, I have like a reusable water bottle and there are those where you put it under the thing. and fills your water bottle and then tells you that this water source has saved like a million plastic bottles from the ocean.
Have you seen these? They have them in gyms and airports and things that are so beautiful, what a water fountain and then they have like the automatic bottle filler. like up that down, I've seen them in airports in airports Okay, and like they were talking like in your neighborhood park I was like, okay, no, they don't have those on the streets, the streets where you're hanging um, that's how they've done it, I mean I've seen them in airports, I have to have them in my gym, this is the point where I can't really think about it, Jim, are you going to do it?
I just think I'm a regular customer. It's not fancy, it's like you know, okay, like any other gym. Don't know. I guess I haven't been to a gym in a while, yeah, I recently started to feel comfortable enough to do so. Congratulations, but I have this thing with those things that, wherever they are, the water knows where it is, that makes sense, yeah, so the one at the gym, if you refill your water bottle there, it tastes like gym water. No, it tastes like a gym, oh, it's gym-flavored water. I feel like it tastes, uh, yeah, you can't drink it.
Yeah, so you might as well throw my reusable water bottle into the ocean and add a turtle because how can I. I can't drink this water. I can't drink this water now because it tastes like um, if you go to a machine and you can see the sweat outline of someone's ass crack afterwards because they just got up, oh, that's the worst, it's like the bottle that yeah, that one It is the taste for a reason uh and the same with the airport it tastes like air it has its Essence yes and now I say yes, you are there and it is as if it tastes like yes, it is not, it is not like there is no smell another sense that is involved here I'm not talking about smell or whatever the water tastes like where it came from yeah you know I'm into water phones yeah and I haven't tried it like I don't I drink from normal water sources.
I don't feel, not really, that hasn't been my thing, I think since sixth grade I think that was the last time it didn't. I've never liked the taste of water from a water fountain mainly I grew up in Southern California, you can't drink tap water, yeah, that was interesting to me, that was never a thing for me, yeah, growing up, yeah, you lived on the east coast, but when you're in a restaurant. They say the Toppers or the tap are still sparkling sounds like you are in a lot of fancy restaurants. I know you drink, look.
I know you because I know you drink sparkling water now. I like sparkling water, but if you drink it, you know why I like it. The sparkling water is because I gave up soda and water tastes disgusting to me. I hate the taste of water, so I drank water, not just water like you can give me, so imagine it tastes like the gym. It's like twice as much, yes, yes, the water is worse. so I had to put some bubbles in it to be able to drink it. Do you have something like a soda squirt or something?
Wow, do you use it? Yes, that is my main source of water. There's one of those in the back like a pantry. here somewhere it's hard because you have to get these things to refill them yeah like CO2 kids so I can just order them I just make things and then um but if you but when you were young when you were younger , right, um and They said it's okay, have you ever not been able to say it's okay, like here? I would say: Do they do that here? I would say it's okay, because it has ice cubes in it and that makes it colder and it freezes, it neutralizes it. the taste, the chlorine or whatever, yes, but isn't the ice like, for example, isn't it the ice like in people's refrigerators that, like their refrigerator, makes ice, is it that the tap water is filtered?
I don't know whatever is from the tap, whatever is coming. out of your sink it doesn't go through a filter um oh actually I don't know, I'm not going to talk about this because I don't know, but if you work if you know a lot about refrigerators leave a comment maybe it depends, it depends on your brand of refrigerator maybe Maybe some refrigerators are like that, yes, we filter the ice, of course, well. I know a refrigerator has a filter because I replaced it, but I don't know if it's thicker, okay? I don't know I'm not an engineer, well that's why we asked you to be on the podcast.
Oh, it's because of my engineering background. I think this has been great. I had fun. I literally had a lot of fun. I mean, it was a little awkward at
first, yeah, I mean, there are moments, but any
firststate will have that, yeah, and we took it slow, yeah, I think we're going to have a second
dateof this, oh my god. I'm really excited, now before you go, although you're on chill podcasts and if you listen, which I'm sure you know, you know Colleen and I love sports, we usually spend this hour talking about sports, yeah, like that I mean, she's a she. diehard sports fan I don't know how long this is going to take what are we going to shoot?
