    gus's "what" sounded so completely let down when gavin said he was "done with not being in control" regarding drinking. then such a relieved "oh okay" when gavin said "in public anyway".

    This might be one of the silliest, most off topic RT Podcasts I've seen.  Gavin was all over the place.

    When you listen to the podcast through your newly acquired AirPods and they spend a lot of time 

    mocking them, feels bad man.

    (Oh and your from a country that none of them knows where it's located.) 


    Proud swede.

    Pacific Rim actually has a reason for the sword thing. The monster blood is super bad for the environment and makes it extremely toxic so to avoid contaminating the water near major cities they punch the monsters to death instead.  Its in the opening montage for the movie.

    A bit random thing to say, but Jon's hair is absolutely amazing.  As someone whose hair is thinning at the ripe old age of... 25, I am ridiculously jealous.

    I don't feel like those headphones look as bad as they make them sound.  They don't look great, but ultimately they look exactly like all other apple headphones just minus the cord.

    I gotta say. My biggest problem with avatar is that at no point did it make you care about the story, and at no point did it make you care about the characters and the characters were so bland with no personality. The entire personality of the lead character is "i'm in a wheelchair" and that's it.

      Jon's character is the prove-all, downtrodden and/or high strung talk show host. He has lots of laughs, even in the filming of OntheSpot.

    Go90 is only available in the US. Meaning that for the last few months, all the teasing for Joel's new show, "What Do You Know?", has been pointless for over half of the Rooster Teeth audience who won't be able to watch it. Thanks.

    I cant believe they didnt make the connection between gus' glasses being off making him sleep is because he takes them off to sleep at night.

    Regarding why we haven't been back to the moon, and that whole topic, there is a new documentary worth watching called "Fight for Space." They have a website fightforspace.com, and I believe they will be premiering the movie later this year. It is available now for people who backed it on KickStarter and it will be released to the public. We have been asked not to share the file until public release, but there may be someone in the RoosterTeeth who can show it to you.

      Yes but they went through an entire fight without using it until they got picked up by the pterodactylthing then they used and instantly killed it. At least I think that's how that worked I have't seen it since it was in theaters.

    Nothing has fucked me up more than the realisation that Americans don't know what ribena is. Or, apparently, currants or cordial. O_o

    • kcazakor FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      2 months ago

      I know currants and cordial. Gus and Barb not knowing something is no basis for assuming all Americans don't know of it. Especially since Barb is Canadian


      Ribena, on the other hand, is only available in Europe, and it's mostly known as a children's drink. There's no reason at all any of us should have heard of it. Even as someone who's traveled internationally (not something most Americans can say) I wouldn't know what it is because in most of Europe water, soda, and beer all cost the same price, and I know where I'm getting the most bang for my buck. And it's not with some sugary juice marketed towards kids.

      Babe, you took that waaaaay harsher than necessary. I meant it as "watching a lot of American media, I know there are major differences in the mundane aspects of both cultures and of all those differences that I've encountered ,I had the most visceral "omg really!?" reaction to them never having heard of ribena, because it was a childhood staple for pretty much everyone I know and it has never occurred to me that it wasn't ubiquitous".  Personally, I only learnt this week that a rutabaga is a swede, but I know to a lot of Americans that's an insane concept. Take a deep breath, realise not everyone is out to call someone stupid or ignorant.
