You were both right. There are multiple forms, or levels, of the syndrome. As is the case for most autistic disorders there are multiple presentations of the syndrome.

My iTunes download was interrupted before the podcast was fully downloaded (internet dropped out for some stupid fucking reason), and now iTunes refuses to finish downloading it, or to start the download from scratch.

Is there anyway to like... clear the iTunes cache or something? Or any other way I can fix this?

I agree about the tv movies, The Stand was a good flick and it was released on tv over so many weeks...its a long movie.

A RAR file is a compressed file like a .zip file. You download a program (Winrar, Winzip, 7zip) and use that to decompress the folder and viola, you have the file you downloaded.

It's essentially a way to transfer large amounts of data or to save space.

1) I think that the word "row" is the British slang for argument or fight (pronounced like "wow" but with an 'r'). So "masturbation row" is not a street or something, it's "masturbation rao," as in a disagreement about masturbation.

2) You guys are absolutely right in that animated movies are always shafted when it comes to the awards shows. That's why they had their own categories created for them - Best Animated Feature and Best Animated Short - because at the time (50s?) there's no way the animated movies would compare to the live action ones. Now, animation is taken more seriously (from the mainstream point of view), so now we think that some animated movies should win Best Picture.

However, just because animated movies are sort of poo-poo'd and usually kept to their own category, doesn't mean they can't be nominated for best picture. In 1992, Beauty and the Beast was nominated for the Best Picture Oscar, losing out to Silence of the Lambs. It was the first animated movie to be nominated for Best Picture. It did, however, win a Golden Globe in 1992 for Best Picture - Musical/Comedy.

3) Also dead this week is Arnold Stang, the voice of Hanna-Barbera's Top Cat and the Honey Nut Cherrios Bee, as well as many old radio programs.

The Minneapolis Lakers moved to Los Angeles where there are no lakes. The Oilers moved to Tennessee where there is no oil. The Jazz moved to Salt Lake City where they don't allow music. The Oakland Raiders moved to L.A. and then back to Oakland, no one Los Angeles seemed to notice.

In defense of everyone who said it on the podcast, it IS Asperger syndrom, which is a part of the Autism Spectrum Disorder. (BTW, the abbreviation of ASD in Dutch is ASS - just thought it was funny and I should mention it)

Great podcast.

As for remembering pi in Grade 8 I won a competition to remember pi. I remembered 163 decimal places of pi. I won a meat pie as a result. Was it worth it. Yes.

Beauty and the Beast was nominated for Best Picture, and it is also the only Best Picture animated film ever.

I think the Thorium issue is the most interesting energy related thing I've read about in years!
Not a bunch of whining ecomentalists; but an actual solution that won't piss-off the World... Nice find, Gus!

Great Podcast. Hey Burnie the only thing worst than show activist is ignorant sheep activist who have no clue what they are protesting or anything about the situation. Perfect example of this when I was at college people were protesting plans to open a Star-bucks on campus, I asked one of the people why and she was all the star-bucks workers don't get good pay in foreign countries and she had no clue how much money the workers actually make.

Not sure if it has been said but for the GTA IV thing have you downloaded Games for Windows Live? Cause I have heard that you need that for something in the game and maybe that will help.

Good luck with the game
