    It took them pointing out that Chris's shirt was the Hindenburg with sloth before I realized it wasn't a surfing sloth

    When they got to the prop guns and the cop that killed a lady in a gun safety training accident all I could think of was my army training.  NEVER!  NEVER! POINT YOUR WEAPON AT SOMETHING YOU DO NOT INTEND TO KILL!!!!  It does not matter if it is a rubber gun a prop gun made to look like a future weapon, a pistol or rifle loaded with blanks...  Always treat it as if it were real and not a toy.   Hearing them agree with that rule that was drilled into my skull over and over again made a sad smile come to an old soldiers face.  Gun safety is not a joke.  No political BS like gun control bull shit or NRA rhetoric.  Just good common sense gun safety.... 

    and a silver-back Gorilla.

    Whenever I find those ridiculous situations where it takes 3 hours to replace a tiny part, it reminds me of this comment my dad would always make. It's like that because the engineer caught a mechanic banging his wife... ha...

    Warning: "miniature" pigs don't stay miniature. They will get huge and then you will have a big pig in your house. Only get one if you have the facilities for having a farm animal. If Burnie has a big enough yard that he can build a barn or something for the pig, it might be okay. But PLEASE don't put one in an apartment.

    I agree with Miles..Season 5 of Samurai Jack is amazing.

    Imo, with the present states of special effects and culture in general, there is absolutely no need to use a true firearm in entertainment productions. The risks aren't worth any reward. Case in point: Why my favorite band's most recent album was delayed for ~6 weeks.


    This is a group that focuses on nuturing all types of positive energy, is most popular in Australia and New Zealand (where gun control is heavy), and (according to the report) hired a veteran production that had all safety percautions in place at the time of the lethal accident.


    Guns have a place in society, but are unnecassary in entertainment media.


    Anyways, If you are interested in fun, positive hip hop that is f$%&ing lit, check out

    That was the bill for replacing a Check Engine Bulb on the dashboard of my car. Unfortunately it had one of those builds you were talking about no idea why the manufacture would have the cluster so hard to access. 

    The reason why I couldn't get around that is that it was state law to have a working Check Engine light to pass the smog device test so I couldn't get the car registration updated until I would fix the mini-bulb.

    I am so with Miles on Samurai Jack. I've been keeping up with it and it honestly feels like they didn't miss a beat even after all these years. Literally my only complaint is Aku's new VA isn't as good but I understand with the passing of Mako they are doing the best they can.

    I'm 20, Miles, and we still use a physical map, but it's Australia, I don't think the internet can cope with it in 80% of the country. Seriously, around where I live, only one in ten people have ADSL internet. Most people are still using dial-up.

    I'm pretty sure there's no such thing as a miniature pig. Like the whole "tea-cup pig" craze was a hoax and those thing get huge and you definitely need to research before you get one, but like dude, there is no way you can keep one in an apartment

    I never want to stop hearing the stories. Why else would I watch this. If someone points out you told the same story on the same day, has nothing to do with the story being told too many times. Its the coincidence thats noteworthy, not the story. Thats all. And anyone who gets upset about something like that is just silly imo. Its part of your job. Taking a comment break after this, Ive been trying to force myself to be more open on social media but a nervous person in general and it gets lost in comment form. <3 u guys! Weird lady out!

    So Drew Carey and Wayne Brady were both working at ABC, ie Drew Carey Show and Whos Line. Both left ABC and moved to CBS, where they both started hosting Game shows at roughly the same time. ie Lets Make a Deal & The Price is Right. So Burnies not wrong for coupling the two. Funny enough Craig Ferguson also moved from ABC to host the Late Late Show CBS and he is and always will be my jimmy jam. I love him for the same reason I love RT now. Hes the most genuine kind of comedy. You could look up any clip from any episode even now and you'll laugh your ass off!

    @burnie x.com wasn't paypal's starting domain name. If I recall correctly the story went that Musk had a service similar to paypal's called x.com while paypal was a domain name and thing of it's own. 

    Eventually Musk bought them in and continue together as paypal using the x.com resources.


    It's a "Mandela Effect' kind of thing to think that Musk founded/inveted paypal when he didn't and that his x.com origin story it's paypal's when they were different companies created by different people. Or the Mandela effect is the other way around and I'm on the other side of it :P

    I loved the cow counting story Burnie told on the other podcasts. I knew he had already told it before, but it's a good story and i liked hearing it again. Having heard it before doesn't retract its value. Telling it again to a new audience on the podcast is going to get new reactions from the different cast members, which is part of the point of watching the podcast. In fact, i was hoping he was about to tell it again.

    If you're looking for a cute but clean pet, get a chinchilla.  They are obsessive about keeping their fur clean (which is why their fur is sought after for coats).  They're cuddly like a rabbit, smaller, and best of all their sh*t literally doesn't stink.   They barely drink any water so they have don't urinate that much and their pellets come out dry.   You can get by with cleaning their cage about once a month (again, very little waste).  My work even let me keep him in large (like family refrigerator size) cage in my office because they have no smell and everyone who visited the office had to see the chinchilla.  HR even made a badge for him.  They live pretty long (mine lived over 15 years) and they can be taught to jump up on your shoulder and chill (see what I did there?).   The only downside is they are in the rodent family, so you really can't let them just roam free in your house because they will instinctively gnaw on things (like wires).

    Butchers in my area won't take bear carcases from hunters, they need to de bone the meat themselves. The reason for this is the bear hanging on the hooks looks too much like a human.

    How the fuck has Chris not learned how to cook in 30 years?!?!

    I remember the fish and dressing story, but I thought he was like 20 or so.

    I'm just befuddled.
