Jack McFarlane 0:16
Hi, everyone, and welcome to the HR Happy Hour Network. This is The Play by Play podcast hosted by myself, Jack McFarlane and Nicholas Schlemmer.

Nick Schlemmer 0:23
How’s it going, guys? I just kind of wanted to start off here really strong with a huge thank you to all of the past guests that we’ve had on the show. Everything has been great, me and Jack had really enjoyed it. And I just wanted to give a huge shout out to them. And thank you. Thank you.

Jack McFarlane 0:38
Yes, thank you guys very much. It’s been a blast. And for anyone out there listening wants to come on the show, please feel free to reach out to or the playby With that out of the way I say we get right into it. And we’re going to start off today with some sports talk.

Nick Schlemmer 0:53
Yeah, so I’m really excited. I kinda want to start off the sports talk with the recent Super Bowl, maybe even the commercials or anything that stuck out to you. Go ahead with that. What was your let’s start with commercials. What was your favorite commercial that you saw?

Jack McFarlane 1:06
All right, favorite commercial? There’s a couple of I thought they’re actually pretty good this year. As seen people are kind of dialing in on him. I liked him. I liked the TurboTax come here and don’t do your taxes with the guy dancing out by the fountain or whatever it was that one that one just made me happy. I love that one. What did what was your favorite commercial?

Nick Schlemmer 1:23
Yeah, so I was I’m kind of on the side of I didn’t like many of them. Like, I didn’t see the Budweiser, the Clydesdales anything. No, no, I was really looking forward to those but I will say the to be commercial. Oh, no. That controversy. Yes. That commercial got me to yell at the TV. I’m sure it happened to lots of people. But I thought that somebody changed channel. Yeah. It was really me blow up. Yes, it was brilliant. I love that. It’s got to be my favorite.

Jack McFarlane 1:49
Yeah, I think another strong one was the Coors Light or Miller light commercial. And then Nope, it’s Blue Moon. And that was that was I think that’s going to be a classic. But to be the controversy. I saw some videos of people like throwing couches up in the air looking for the remote. Oh, it was brilliant.

Nick Schlemmer 2:07
That commercial was just amazing. And then just moving on to Super Bowl. Chiefs overcome the Philadelphia Eagles.

Jack McFarlane 2:18
Yes, I know. They’re pretty forgettable Watch out. Now, from episode one, I set it here first it was I don’t know was it week one week two of the NFL season? My best bet totally cast Chiefs all the way. I called it.

Nick Schlemmer 2:33
So you did call it I had the rams that did not turn out. No, it didn’t. But you should have put a bet on down for the chiefs to win the Super Bowl. That would have been amazing. But what were some key takeaways from the game that you saw some highlights? Maybe some bad plays?

Jack McFarlane 2:47
What do you say? Yeah, I mean, I have a pretty big football background. So when I watch a game I’m I like to almost analyze it a little bit which can ruin the fun sometimes to be honest, but I mean, both sides of the ball was a high scoring game, but I think both defenses had some big big stops in both offices. But when I think of like biggest plays I think of the huge punt return by carriers Tony for 65 yards. I think of both the little it was hilarious. Tony’s receiving touchdown in sky more all these are for the chiefs. I’m a pretty big cheese fan, but where they would motion in and the defense would lose communication and just wide open touched on everyone’s seen it. It’s why the Chiefs won. And then Patrick Mahomes Just playing like a machine. I don’t even think that guy’s human. I mean, absolutely destroys his ankle once again. On I think it was a sack or throwing the ball away.

Nick Schlemmer 2:48
Yeah. He had a really bad running play.

Jack McFarlane 3:38
Yeah. Ankle and you could

Nick Schlemmer 3:40
visibly see Yes. limping trying to run down the field. Yeah, I mean, it still came up with a 20 yard run on it.

Jack McFarlane 3:46
Yeah, I think. I think if what Patrick Mahomes could do I mean, he didn’t have the most yards, but he also had the ball very little, especially in the first half. Compared to the eagles. They bled the clock.

Nick Schlemmer 3:57
Yeah, I was gonna say the one way to beat Patrick Mahomes.

Jack McFarlane 4:01
Don’t let them have the football. Exactly. Eagle. Exactly.

Nick Schlemmer 4:04
I believe it was at halftime, the eagles had doubled the amount of time with the ball than the than the Chiefs. Yeah. Which I mean, Patrick Mahomes. Still came out played a great game. And it was it was just insane.

Jack McFarlane 4:17
Yeah, I mean, it was I mean, it truly was one of the best roles we’ve had in a long time. I think it was better than rams, Bengals. I think it was better than Tampa and chiefs. And it’s probably the most fun I’ve had watching a Super Bowl since. I mean, the Niners and the Ravens when the power went out. Like I mean, this was a good Super Bowl. I think we were all blessed to to get a high scoring close game. I think that’s what everybody wanted.

Nick Schlemmer 4:40
It ended 38-35 Yeah. There was a lot of I’m sure all of y’all have heard about the scripted NFL. Oh, yes. So I actually did see, I believe it was on Instagram. Somebody had basically the full script the Chiefs when it ended 38-35 Real Yeah, somebody had the script.

Jack McFarlane 5:05
Is it real? Is it real? Is it not?

Nick Schlemmer 5:07
Personally I don’t think it’s possible to script the NFL.

Jack McFarlane 5:10
I don’t think it’s not like the WWE and people in the WWE they know it’s scripted that’s part of the thing that’s part of the fun, but it is fun to imagine I saw one where it was like Eagles win 37 to 35 and so when it was titled like, oh my gosh, the Eagles are gonna get a safety they’re gonna win this is not gonna it’s not happening. It’s really scripted. Yeah. Yes. So much fun to to just think about it and read all on Twitter has been blown out about the NFL script making all these jokes. It is awesome.

Nick Schlemmer 5:38
And then just switching gears here. We’re moving into MLB preseason spring training. Cardinals are going to start their games here soon. Oh, yeah. We’ve made some pretty big moves. We lost some key players.

Jack McFarlane 5:51
We got a new catcher. That’s right. We added a huge key player though. Yeah. Wilson Contreras. Yep.

Nick Schlemmer 5:55
From the from the rival from the Cubs, but that’s okay. It’s okay. He said he’s he’s found a home here in St. Louis. So I’m really excited to see what he can do. And I’m looking forward to MLB it’s one

Jack McFarlane 6:05
Yeah, same. I also love the MLB I’m getting excited. I just saw a clip today of Jordan Walker, who is the top prospect for the Cardinals and I believe number three in the whole MLB. So he should be if not starting day one in MLB. He’ll be called up for sure. Just watching him take batting practice and he hit one dead center over the batter’s I like it was the reporter that wrote about it said it was the farthest homerun he’s seen all day. And Jordan Walker’s maybe 20 years old. He’s young and it’s just exciting to see the Cardinals have such a bright future ahead of them.

Nick Schlemmer 6:33
Yeah, I’m, I’m really looking forward to the MLB. And just going to place the early bet here for the World Series.

Jack McFarlane 6:39
Oh, okay.

Nick Schlemmer 6:41
I’m going I’m gonna go the Cardinals. This year. Yeah. I think they’re gonna come out just ready to play.

Jack McFarlane 6:49
Yeah. So I think the Cardinals are so young and have just enough veteran help, like Wilson Contreras is it’s not only big because we had avoided catcher but he’s a veteran. And he’s been around league a long time. We have so many young studs. I think he’s gonna guide them and it’s gonna be amazing.

Nick Schlemmer 7:02
Yeah. And then talk about the NBA trade deadline. Oh, my God. People were raising or changing teams every two minutes. It seems like Yeah, but I think the main one we really want to mention is Kevin Durant to the Phoenix Suns.

Jack McFarlane 7:15
Yeah. And with Carleigh, she is my sister and Nick’s cousin. She is a huge Suns fan was just bouncing off the walls excited at 1am when the trade went through, yeah. Oh, I didn’t see it coming. I was not ready. I did not realize the trade deadline is right there. And I look at my phone and it’s like 30 woge bombs. Kevin Durant to the suns and then the the one that got me was like the whole Jae Crowder, didn’t play for the Suns all year gets traded to Brooklyn, in the Kevin Durant trade, and then traded to Milwaukee. Like a couple hours later, it was a crazy deadline.

Nick Schlemmer 7:51
It kind of blows my mind how you can have four different teams all in one particular trade. Yeah, like there’s three team for two guys going here. One guy going here and it could be anything.

Jack McFarlane 8:01
Those are those really I was reading all about them. And I just don’t know how do teams even agree to that? How do you get three major teams to agree to a big trade like that? I just don’t get it.

Nick Schlemmer 8:11
Yeah, yeah. And college hoops. We’re moving into March Madness. Yeah. here shortly we’ll have March Madness. Just a couple more. conference games for for every team to play. Just going to give a little shout out here to the Nebraska Cornhuskers getting a big win over wreckers right? We’ve won our last three of four games, we’re still not going to make the tournament.

Jack McFarlane 8:32
I never say never, never say never. Maybe in this case.

Nick Schlemmer 8:36
We’re just not that caliber team. But what are your kind of prediction for March Madness? Who do you have? Say Final Four?

Jack McFarlane 8:43
Final Four. Okay, so I don’t I don’t know if I have quite a Final Four yet, but they’re because I don’t know what the seedings gonna really look like. It’s hard to predict that. But I say a couple of teams that definitely look out for number one. I mean, I think they’re ranked three right now. But Purdue Yeah. I did not see a comment. I don’t know if many people saw it come in with Purdue being so dominant this year. And then Alabama, who would have thought Alabama would be better in basketball and football this year? Yeah. Hot take. Yeah. But Alabama, the basketball school? Yeah, I think those are two teams keep an eye on. But yeah, I’ll probably ruin for Purdue out of the big 10. They might be the only team to make it other than maybe Indiana. Yeah. But I think Purdue has got a good shot.

Nick Schlemmer 9:23
Yeah. And I’m kind of thinking so even though we did just beat them. Rutgers is known for their defense. They are I believe they’re ranked number one for their defense in college basketball. Yeah. And that’s what they live by. So I’m going to kind of go with some upsets on the defensive side wreckers moving into even like the sweet, sweet 16 area. I can see them making it far with some huge defensive players, but Purdue Zack at seven foot three or something like that. Yeah, it’s hard to stop him. I mean, and Purdue has just some sharpshooters as well. So I’m really looking forward to that. Hopefully Nebraska makes it and maybe not.

Jack McFarlane 10:02
Probably I don’t know, but I wouldn’t bet on it. But I wouldn’t place any bets on it. March is a crazy month for basketball. You know, marches. That’s why they call it March Madness. I know it is. I think it’s the best sports tournament to watch. I mean, it’s win or go home. Yeah, it’s crazy. There have been some huge upsets and a lot of money lost on it and Pasco beers for me, maybe I’m going to turn it around this year. But we’ll see. It’s just a great tournament.

Nick Schlemmer 10:27
Definitely, definitely. And I kind of wanted to change gears here into a look into the future. Now, in this segment, we’re gonna be talking about AI topics. Jack, you’re gonna start us off.

Jack McFarlane 10:38
But yeah, so I think I mean, just today, the day we’re recording, which is February 15, my Microsoft has come out with a new, they call it the new Bing, I’m on the waitlist for it. I haven’t gotten it yet. But basically, what it’s all about is like, being is now being run by AI. So how they describe it, it says, The New Bing is like having a research assistant, personal planner, and creative planner at your side whenever you search the web. So I mean, you can search it like normal, ask questions, and it’ll pop up. Like Google does. You pop up all your websites, everything, but it can also go into the separate mode, I believe, where it’s like you’re texting almost, but it’s with an AI? Yeah. So I saw, like Elon Musk came out today and said that AI is like, one of the brightest futures but also scariest futures that we have, not just in 2023, but in the next 10 years, because it’s truly powerful. I mean, it can do a lot of thing is.

Nick Schlemmer 11:34
It is very powerful. And we’re kind of seeing this. People are beginning to lose the sight of the human touch, per se. With AI coming into restaurants, businesses, anything, are kind of losing that one on one personal connection with actual people. Because we can just have AI’s take your order, AI’s do almost everything, check you out, do anything. So it’s really interesting to see on what the future can hold for even just in 2023. What kind of changes we’re gonna see with, with AI coming coming into the world?

Jack McFarlane 12:12
Yeah, I think a big thing in 2023 is, I believe, already being experimented at McDonald’s along the restaurant line of things, taking the human touch out of it with I can’t remember exactly where it’s at, but they are using an AI drive through, like checkout. So it does the pre recorded speech, like Oh, Hi, Welcome to McDonald’s. And then you tell it, and it basically does everything that the drive thru worker would do for you. But But it’s a computer. It’s it’s not real. And there’s definitely mixed reviews on it. I heard some people that really liked it. But a lot of people are like, I just don’t trust it yet. I think that’s a big thing with AI is people not trusting it yet.

Nick Schlemmer 12:47
And with with, with AI, it’s all technology, technology is going to have problems, there’s going to be some kind of flaw in the system. So I’ve seen, like you said, mixed reviews, with the AI just completely botching messing up the order, not charging them wrong. I’ve seen a little bit of everything. But then I’ve also seen I saw a short clip of it was a coffee shop, I believe in New York City, the waitress waiter was a robot, like I know he’s talking about like, not a walking robot, but it was on some wheels. And and you could talk to it to have a conversation with it. And then you just paid edit, you just touched its face as it was the screen. And and you paid an order that way. And then you just sit down on your table, and we’ll bring it out to you. But like we said, we’re losing that, that human Yeah, factor into it.

Jack McFarlane 13:38
I think that’s a huge part of it is, you know, maybe it’s people not, it’s not that they’re not trusting AI? And I don’t know, I would like to hear your thoughts on it. But what do you think about losing the human element? I know, we’ve learned a lot this semester about moments of truth, and especially in customer service, which is basically like, every time you go into a restaurant or golf course in our example, or hotel anywhere you get a moment of truth, which tells you hey, I like this place like they’re doing or No, I’m not going to come back here. This is wrong. Like, what are your thoughts? How do you think we can, like set up new moments of truth? If AI are the workers and you don’t have that human experience?

Nick Schlemmer 14:13
Yeah, no, that’s that’s a great question. I’m, to be honest with you, I’m not too sure how that’s going to look with AI because, okay, here’s what I think. So I’m thinking that take Gen Z is the older generation, I think whenever we’re in our 40s 50s, we’re going to be in that stage where AI is now way more advanced than it is now to where we’re not going to like it. But then our kids is kids. Our kids is going to that’s going to be what they know. They’re going to love it. They’re going to be used to it. I think we’re literally just gonna see that trend that we’ve been seeing with everything and genealogy every generation. I think that’s just going to continue on with how we look at AI. Now AI granite is can be used very well. It can speed the process up for almost anything. But there’s some things I feel like aI just shouldn’t be fully

Jack McFarlane 15:08
for. No, I agree with that. I think AI definitely, even though it could be used for a million things, it probably shouldn’t be used for a million things. Yeah. So yeah, I like that. I like that point. And then I mean, what are your thoughts on like, AI helping in the business world or as a student, I mean, just before the show, we were doing some research on AI. And we came across chat GPT, which is like right now known as the best kind of AI that you can use on the Internet. And I mean, we had it write an essay about football, six paragraphs, 500 words. 40 seconds, whole essay, that is not plagiarized cannot be tracked, like, you can’t just look it up and have it pull up an essay. So your teachers would never know that you didn’t write this. It wrote us a song about podcasting. I mean, it can do some incredible things. What do you think is the best benefit of AI? In business or educational world?

Nick Schlemmer 16:06
Yeah, so for the educational world, specifically, I can see this going two ways, I can see it going really well, in the sense that it can help you say, when writing that big essay, and you’re just stuck your five pages in and you need eight. And you could ask it to get that paragraph going for you. And who knows, that just might spark something. But then I can also see the flip side of that, where students are using the entire thing, just using chat GPT to write their whole essay. When if more and more students keep doing that, we’re probably going to see something the same essays being wrote. Yeah, and turning in potentially, where then we’ll start to see problems.

Jack McFarlane 16:52
Yeah, no, I did. I did it twice. And it did write two different essays. But I think that brings up a good point, is there a limit to how much creativity and AI can do? Does, it doesn’t even know what creativity is how I think it’s gonna be interesting to see how like, especially teachers will try and catch it. I think during online learning, when we had to go through that, especially in high school, teachers started off, I don’t want to say oblivious, but no way to really track cheating. And you could cheat in online school very easily, especially in zoom. Like, that’s just a fact. And everyone knows it. And then teachers found the best ways to track cheating. And I wonder if there’s a way that’s going to be able to do that with, like aI essays, especially because I think that might be the biggest way that students will be able to cheat in the future.

Nick Schlemmer 17:39
Yeah. And something just popped into my head here. popped into my head, a Lockdown Browser. Yeah, I can potentially see teachers requiring a lockdown browser to write essays to where

Jack McFarlane 17:51
that’s Yeah, I

Nick Schlemmer 17:52
can’t open any more tabs besides Google Docs. Yeah. Now maybe a way to combat that? Yeah.

Jack McFarlane 18:01
Yeah, I mean, I think AI is just gone. It’s almost scary, but exciting. I don’t know. It’s just, it’s gonna be crazy to see what happens in the future. And I think it will affect every industry. It’s not just going to be an education thing. It’s not just going to be a restaurant thing. I mean, it’s coming for every business, every industry, and I think it’s gonna be really fascinating to see kind of what happens in 2023. Yep. Me is me as well. So yeah, I think those are some pretty good conversations. We just had an AI there, but I think it’s time to move it to our third and final segment. Maybe my favorite segment, it’s time for game time.

Nick Schlemmer 18:39
I’m excited. We haven’t done the game time the last couple episodes.

Jack McFarlane 18:43
Last one, three or four episodes. Last one was the Kanye President quote or song lyric? Yep. And you did not do too hot. Okay, I failed that exam. Yeah, so maybe you’re looking for a little redemption here. I would chalk it up. As I’m one to know, I’m undefeated. In Game time, I’m going to try and keep it that way. Today, we got a little bit different of a game for you, Nick. And feel free to play along at home tweet at us. Tell us how you did? And if you beat Nick, I don’t know. So I have got some of the most expensive items in the world. Okay. The first part is I’m going to give you a base price, for example. 50,000, you’re going to tell me if it’s higher or lower. If you get that right, you get a point. Okay, then I’ll let you guess the actual price. If you’re within 1000 for a cheaper item, or 100,000 for a very expensive item. I’ll give you a second point. Okay, yeah, that makes sense. And my goal is to have you get these points as possible. Okay. I think if you can get I’m thinking around 10 points. Then I’ll chalk it up as a win for you. If you’re ready, yep, we’ll start with the first item. This is a 6.8 carat Mallanna diamond engagement. ring that can be found on Amazon. Okay, yeah. Your base price $85,000.85 I’m gonna go below you’re gonna go lower than 85,000 Well, Nick, you’re wrong. You’re starting off with no point. Oh no gametime strikes again. But redemption in this game. What? So you now know it’s higher than 85,000? Yep. What do you think?

Nick Schlemmer 20:25
I’m gonna go with 87 and a half.

Jack McFarlane 20:29
That is not a bad guess. Sadly, it is wrong. And you get no points on the first question here. Now this diamond ring is $127,000 on Amazon and wow, on Amazon. These are some expensive items. Some expensive items. Alright, moving on here. You might know this one a little more. This is a 1955 tops. Roberto Clemente rookie card, PSA 10. So it is in pristine condition. $100,000 Higher lower.

Nick Schlemmer 21:02
I’m gonna go higher and higher. Yes. And you have

Jack McFarlane 21:05
got your first point is more than $100,000. And just keep in mind this is for people that might not know this is a single baseball card. Yeah. What would you guess the price?

Nick Schlemmer 21:18
I’m gonna go 110,000

Jack McFarlane 21:21
That’s not a bad guess. Sadly Wrong again on the price. Now that is a little harder to guess is the price but it is actually $171,000. Wow. For one single baseball card. And it is not the most expensive I believe the most expensive is 13 million, something like that. I don’t remember the exact number. It’s an absurd number for a baseball card. But you have got 1.1 point you’re doing great. All right. All right. Kinda stay with the baseball theme for this one. This is a ball that was signed by Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig, okay. $250,000 higher or lower?

Nick Schlemmer 22:00
It is definitely higher. Oh, but sadly,

Jack McFarlane 22:04
it’s definitely lower. It is lower than $250,000. Okay. 250.

Nick Schlemmer 22:13
Okay, let’s go 225,000

Jack McFarlane 22:16
You know what, I’m going to give it to you, that is a very close guess it is $230,000. I think that’s close enough on a big number like that. I’m gonna give you a point there. So you get the higher lower rung. But you move up two points. Okay. Now, this is a chess set. But it’s not just any chess set. It is made out of 14 karat gold. And over 9000 Diamonds. The price $500,000. Higher lower.

Nick Schlemmer 22:48
I’m gonna go with higher.

Jack McFarlane 22:49
That’s right. It is more expensive than half a million dollars for this chest set.

Nick Schlemmer 22:55
What is your I’m thinking that’s pushing a million. Let’s go 900,000.

Jack McFarlane 23:02
I mean, that’s not a bad guess. Honestly, that’s probably what I would guess it’s a little less. It’s at 600,000. Wow. But it’s still an absurd amount for a chess set. Do you even play it? That’s the question.

Nick Schlemmer 23:12
I have not played chess since freshman year of high school. Well, here we go. This is

Jack McFarlane 23:17
your chance to get back into chess. Maybe we’ll donate it to coach G and the chess club more than high school. 600 1000s Nothing, right. Nothing. All right. Now this one intrigued me a lot. It is a magnetic floating bedframe. And so I guess there’s magnets installed on the floor and on the bed frame. It’s just floating. Floating bed. Yeah. 1.8 million higher lower.

Nick Schlemmer 23:44
I’m gonna go lower. I don’t think I don’t think it could be worth that much.

Jack McFarlane 23:47
That’s right. Yeah, it is lower. You’re up to three points. Can you tack on an extra

Nick Schlemmer 23:51
1.8? It’s probably worth I wouldn’t think it’d be worth over a million honestly. But I’ll just go a million just to stay safe.

Jack McFarlane 23:59
A million. That’s not a bad guess. But it is higher than a million. It’s 1.6 million for a floating bedframe. Wow. Yeah. But maybe that’s to do with the magnets. I’m not sure. I think it might be a little overpriced. That might be a hot tip. All right here. How many more do we have? We have? Six more. All right. If you’re shooting that

Nick Schlemmer 24:23
I’m shooting for about four more points. Yeah, let’s go. About seven points. I will take a happy seven.

Jack McFarlane 24:29
All right, here we go. This is a simple item. Found in a not so simple area. It’s just a parking spot for one year in Manhattan. Oh, your price $700,000.

Nick Schlemmer 24:47
You know, I would hate to say this, but that sounds pretty reasonable. So I’m gonna go higher. That’s right. Okay, good. Point. Downtown Manhattan. I haven’t been there yet. But I can just imagine how expensive that is be. That will be 700,000 it’s higher. I’m gonna I’m gonna go 900,000

Jack McFarlane 25:09
Oh, that you know, I’m gonna give it to you that is pretty close. Big number it is worth roughly estimated a million. So I’m going to give you that point but for one year parking spot, downtown Manhattan, a mill raising a million up to five points. That was a big comeback. Good Nick winter game time. All right, now this is an even simpler item than a parking spot. It’s just a simple feather of who you burn. It’s like a black feather. Okay, it’s just the feather bird. Really?

Nick Schlemmer 25:41
Is it a rare bird?

Jack McFarlane 25:44
I don’t know exactly how rare but I mean, it’s just one single feather. This isn’t all the feathers. Okay, this is one single feather $5,000

Nick Schlemmer 25:53
I’m gonna go higher. I feel like if it’s a near extinct animal or something like that. There’s people are crazy for anything. Yeah, everybody has their own hobbies. I feel like 5000 That’s pretty low.

Jack McFarlane 26:04
That’s That’s correct. It is higher Do you have?

Nick Schlemmer 26:06
I’m gonna go with about 10,000 for that feather that

Jack McFarlane 26:11
you hit the nail right on the head neck with the comeback up to seven points. I mean, it is valued at $10,000 for a single feather this bird. Wow. So yeah, I mean, that was a huge comeback. I almost wanted to give you bonus points for hitting it exactly. But just almost so I’m not going. Alright, we got three left. And I gotta say these are some big hitters. This next item is an iPhone five. But at the time is very famous. It came out as the Black Diamond. iPhone five. I don’t know if you remember seeing it way back in the day. It’s gold plated. It’s got diamonds all over it. It was one of a kind. Okay. $11 million for an iPhone five. $11 million higher lower.

Nick Schlemmer 26:59
I just feel like everything with Apple is crazy expensive, but I’m gonna go lower than 11.

Jack McFarlane 27:05
Lower. The amount of time there’s a point it is higher than $11 million. Keep my iPhone five. Guess your price

Nick Schlemmer 27:14
is higher. I’m gonna go 12 point 5 million.

Jack McFarlane 27:17
That’s pretty close. Not a bad guess. But it is at 15 Point 3 million. Wow. For a single iPhone five. And we’re on iPhone 14 now. Yeah, yeah, I remember back in the day, it really made a lot of headlines. I mean, it’s it’s a gold plated phone that has diamonds in the Apple logo on the home button because it still had a home button. Yep. Crazy. All right, you’re at seven points, possibility to get four more, and you just got to get to 10. Okay, you can do this two questions left. Now, this is something maybe you would never even think of, but it’s a website domain name. And it’s just Okay. Your base price $20 million. Higher or lower?

Nick Schlemmer 28:06
I’m gonna go higher with how many different insurance companies and different types of insurance there are. I’m going it’s probably significantly higher as my guess.

Jack McFarlane 28:16
Well, you’re gonna have to go three for three counts, because it is a lower than $40 million. Can you This is an important guess. What do you think?

Nick Schlemmer 28:28
7 million.

Jack McFarlane 28:31
Now that I guess was far off. I mean, blow up question. 16 million for is the value of it, which is something I would have never thought of. And sure not calm can’t be worth that much. No, it’s worth 16 million.

Nick Schlemmer 28:49
I guess somebody has that right now.

Jack McFarlane 28:51
I wish I had. Welcome back to the insurer podcast. Yeah. All right. Last question. I’ll give you a chance. If you can get the higher lower right and guess the price right? I’ll give you double points and you’ll win the game. So this is for the win. Okay. Okay. It is a simple photograph. So this is not a painting. It is not a piece of art. I guess you could classify it as art for photograph, but it’s just a photograph called rain to. It’s basically a picture of kind of grass and then some water. It’s nothing. I don’t want to ruffle some feathers out there if this is your favorite photograph, but it’s nothing too spectacular. I just wanted to keep that in mind. It’s just a photograph. Okay. $5 million, 5 million.

Nick Schlemmer 29:37
I feel like something so simple. Like that could be like an apple or a HP like background. Like for a computer or like a desktop. I’m gonna go higher because I think that would be that would fit in that category.

Jack McFarlane 29:53
It is not higher than $5 million. Could you make me salvage a little bit and guess the price here?

Nick Schlemmer 30:01
lower than 5 million. 2 million.

Jack McFarlane 30:06
That’s not a bad guess it’s it’s a little more than 2 million. It’s, I got a little bit, it’s up 4.3 million. So it was just under just under 5 million. But I think those are some good guesses. And you know, for me, I moved to two now in game time, hopefully you guys did a little better, Nick. Maybe had some fun. But maybe next time you’ll get me. Yeah, maybe you did.

Nick Schlemmer 30:27
Maybe next time, maybe I can. I can come back here per se. But yeah, let us know how you guys did. We’d love to hear about it. And then I would just like to introduce a little last little segment here that I kind of came up with before the show today. So here recently, I’ve been all about everything, just inspiration, and motivation. And I would like to introduce the inspirational quote of the show. I’ll say we’ll try and talk about for a little bit. And then it’s just for everybody out there to Hey, you never know when you might need some motivation, inspiration, and it’s never too late. And that is exactly what this quote is about. It is by it is from excuse me, George Eliot. It’s never too late to be who you could have been. To me that just hits really hard. Oh, yeah. A lot of people get caught up in the hour. It’s too late. I’ve waited too long. It’s never too late to be who you could have been. Everybody. Thank you for tuning in today. It was a great show.
