    The way I see it on Harry Potter. If you're a fan of the series and have been sorted in a house on Pottermore or in HP world, you're a wizard and belong to the house you're sorted in. If you're not a fan or interested in taking a test, you're a muggle.

    You guys should care more about the Ilvermorny houses though. Being Americans. (With obvious exception of Gavin)

    If only Gavin and meg are getting sick, CO or carbon monoxide poising causes flu like symptoms, if you guys have any type of fossil fuel or gas burning device in the home (gas cooker, gas boiler, wood burning stove... that last one might not be used in Austin,) if I where Gavin I would have someone fit a CO alarm in places in the house that might contain CO like the attic, kitchen or living room, anywhere the fumes could leak to, if it goes off you know theirs a problem and you can fix it, it doesn't, then im wrong and you aren't poisoned, seems like a win win. ( i should probably point out im an electrician who has just left college, I had a few classes on this subject and fire safety.)

    'Whoa' is related to what, when, where, why, etc. 'Woah' is related to 'yeah'. 'Whoa' absolutely came first, but since neither one of these are words in the strictest sense, I'm not sure it really matters. Decades from now, it'll just be 'wo'.

    Don't be so quick to write off VR. There's a bunch of headsets coming out in the near future that are manufactured by big names in PC (ASUS, Acer, Dell, HP, Lenovo... probably more but I can't remember), and they all have inside-out positional tracking so you don't have to have cameras set up for it to work.

    There's actually a way to get a big mac for a cheaper price. Ask for a double cheeseburger and list of all the toppings a big mac has. it's like $2 less and the only difference between that and the actual big mac is there's no slice of bread in the middle

    I really wish RT would actually give real recommendations in the Audible ad reads.  I can't remember the last time Gus hasn't just said GoT during an Audible read.  The thing I like about Audible sponsoring podcasts and the like is that I get suggestions for books I never considered before.  When RT does it, it's either Game of Thrones or the latest book-soon-to-be-movie.  Burnie tries to add some variety, but it inevitably is some youtuber's biography.  I'm sure there are some employees who use the service who would have some new ideas for audiobooks to listen to.

    i don't get why burnie says VR is not gonna make it?

    it's just gonna be like 4k and other tech jumps things it's gonna stagnate for a few years till some system selling games promote people to get it and the price and technology get's ironed down.

      It's basically like 3D.  It totally bombed as a home theater option, but it's still a think for theatrical use.  

      Burnie thinks the same thing's going to happen to VR.  For a full immersive experience, you have to dedicate a decent amount of space in your home, which most people don't have or aren't willing to give that much space to a specific thing.  Companies can custom develop their space to enhance the VR experience they're offering.  While VR has come a long way in recent years, it's not quite to the point where home use is worth the investment,  but it's at a point where a company that's creative enough can utilize the technology to enhance a destination experience.

      VR is certainly interesting, but I think it's always going have a "glass ceiling" for home use, simply because in order for VR to continue growing and evolving, it's going to require bigger space and more complicated setups to use.


      I'm not "negative" towards VR, but aside from price, the reason I've not tried it is because so many of the games available kind of scream "tech demo" or "proof of concept". They just don't quite feel like full on games, from what I see. Which is fine, again, that's not meant to be critical of them. But they haven't really been moving forward as much as one might hope.


      One of the things I always think about in VR games is movement. A lot of stuff I see tends to just feature the player either teleporting around, or having to use a controller for that, and other tasks, and I just feel like that's not the most ideal solution. But nobody has really come up with a great solution for that that captures the immersive factor of VR, while also being doable in a home setup.


      Much like 3D, I don't think VR will ever "die out", rather, it's going to go through phases of popularity, and like Burnie said, it will probably become something that's more an external "attraction" at locations, rather than the future of home gaming.

    Okay. Can I say something that annoys me? I wish Gavin and Burnie would stop talking about "great" Notch is.

    Notch isn't a good person. He's a jerk who hates women. I get that Minecraft is a big thing with Achievement Hunter, but he's a misogynist. Just look at his Twitter; all he does is complain about how he's oppressed by women even though he's a friggin' millionaire, and calling them c*nts.


    Oh, but he donates to charity; that automatically means he a cool guy? Eff that. He called Zoe Quinn a c*nt. He supports Gamergate, and thinks feminism is a "social disease".

    I hate when they talk about Game of Thrones but trying not to spoil it. They mentioned that if people are worried about spoilers they should skip ahead. I'd love to hear their real thoughts on the show, without being vague.

      I'm so far behind, I kinda like that they try to avoid spoilers (just shows that they're conscious of that fact their audience isn't always caught up). 


      However, I see where you're coming from, and I'd be TOTALLY fine with them doing spoilers, if they had a visual cue to indicate start/stop. Either a graphic, or somebody holding up an arm/sign. If they did, I'd just skip past the spoilers. As it is now, I have to leave my headphones off and check every 15 seconds to find out if they're still talking about it. 


      But, meh, they're gonna do what they want to do. Maybe they'll put out a spoilercast at some point.

      What's funny to me is that I follow GoT as its airing, so I'm not worried about spoilers, but when they talk around it or be vague about it, I find myself not remembering what they're vaguely referring to, and then I'm like "Wait, which part are they talking about?". lol

    Game of Thrones has gone bad ever since they surpassed the books. Everything now is lazy writting and fan service with character reunions and throwback one-liners. The show was no more depth and intrigue like it used to have.

      I wouldn't say its bad, but its certainly not as good. The first episode this season was fantastic, the second was a bit of a drop off in terms of dialogue. The show is still better than anything else on TV right now.

      The show has become inconsistent and all over the place with character motivations. In season 6, is Sansa important for to reunite the North? She needed to get married to Ramsey in Season 5 but when she was trying to recrute bannermen with Jon, no one would follow her. It was the Vale and Littlefinger than ended up saving the North. The North should belongs to the Vale now.

      I believe he is saying is the cost difference is $12k for a 12 hr trip means its $1k / hour to sit in that better seat. If he has that job, he would take it. So making $1k/hour by just sitting. While he is not making the money, he is saving $12k by not upgrading. Hopefully that makes more sense because that is how I interrupted it

      They talked about it on a recent podcast... not sure which number but it was within the last four including the thuesday ones. It's a type of milk that doesn't need to be refrigerated until open and apparently last for months. They plan on opening one jug during Extra Life 2017 and the other during Extra life 2018.
