Episode 521 – Demon Seaman

This show was on fire! So much yelling, so much rants, but all in good fun. You’ll have a good time because we had a good time. I love doing this show every week. It gives me something to look forward to and is just an awesome thing. By the way, speaking of awesome things, you should totally go check out the pre-order page for Horizons: An Anthology of Epic Journeys. It’s another anthology from your good friends at The Legion of Dorks! Half the proceeds go to charity!

Episode 517 – The Goo That Becomes You

I’ve decided that maybe having a drink before the show is a decent idea. Between Ashley’s ADHD and my white russian, we really had a great time. I think everyone in the chat had a great time too and that’s really the only measure we have to how awesome this show is. I’m pretty happy with it. Let’s do it again! Enjoy this thing, nerds!

Factoid of the Week:

Nature is a brutal place, so during brooding, penguins are reluctant to leave their eggs unguarded in the nest—even to relieve themselves. But one also does not wish to sully the nest with feces. So instead, a brooding penguin will hunker down, point its rear end away from the nest, lift its tail, and let fly a projectile of poo—thereby ensuring both the safety of the eggs and the cleanliness of the nest. Using Newton’s equations, the maximum flying distance of penguin poo was calculated to be 1.34 meters, or 4.39 feet.

Factoid of the Week:
To help loosen a stubborn knot, roll it with your palm against a rock. For really stuck knots, such as those found in manky tied slings, soak the knot in water. Conversely, to create a more secure knot, soak it before tying, cinch it tight, and let it dry.

Episode 513 – Is It Quell?

This show was a great return after taking a week off. We laughed, we struggled to get through stories, and we had more random tangential thoughts that we’ve had in a while. The world is a mess, but we really wanted to bring some joy. I think we succeeded in our mission

Factoid of the Week:
An axe can be used for a variety of moves due to the curved shape of the head:  The axe head can be used to hook an opponent’s ankle, thus throwing them off balance and onto the ground.  It can be also hooked over another body part such as the neck, to force a person to move in a direction they don’t want to go.  The axe can also be used to hook the edge of a shield, pulling it away to press an attack, or to disarm the opponent.

It’s been another week in the plaguelands, but we’re making it through! Not only that, we managed to pull in a bunch of stories that have nothing to do with a virus! We did learn that Ashley is violent, and that both of us managed to get a pass tonight on not answering a question. You’ll have fun. Give it a listen.

Factoid of the Week:
Newborns spend half their sleep time in REM, accompanied by jerking eyeballs, twitching bodies and a characteristic saw-toothed pattern on brain scans. For comparison, adults spend just one quarter of their sleeping time in REM and the rest in the dreamless non-REM phase, marked by slowly varying brain waves. If babies dream during REM, then they would dream for the equivalent of a full eight-hour workday.
