  1. I used to listen to MBMBAM pretty regularly and these days I only occasionally do, but think that's less to do with a decline in quality as it is me just having less time to listen to podcasts. Personally, I thought the Seeso show was great, and most of it's problems seemed to be the result of them never having made a TV show before, which is sort of the opposite problem of them becoming too comfortable in their popularity. Another thing is that I really do think The Adventure Zone has continued to get better over time, both as Griffin started taking the story increasingly more seriously and as Justin Travis and Clint have put more thought into their characters. TBH that's why it's never bothered me that Griffin tends to be kinda railroad-y, as all four of them are so clearly on board with taking it that direction. It's not always perfect, the ~3 episodes in the Wonderland loop were pretty awful and the current flashback arc isn't really working for bunch of minor reasons, but those feel like isolated problems rather than recurring ones.
  2. Is this just gonna be something that flares up every few years until people get tired of complaining about it? It seems like anyone who knows how the internet works understands that deregulating ISPs is a bad idea, but they already understood that three years ago. If we successfully fight this are we just gonna have to fight it again in another three years? I don't understand how this is a logical way for the government to function.
  3. On MBMBAM earlier this year they claimed they were going to become fushigi art patrons. I'm pretty sure they actually set aside ~$400 as incentive.
  4. The biggest thing I took away from that video was realizing how different cars look today vs. 25 years ago.
  5. I guess I meant that it's hard to have a safe space for discussion without the conversation at least partially becoming about safe spaces rather than the thing you wanted to discuss.
  6. The fact that the concept of a "safe space" has itself become a political stance is somewhat frustrating in that regard.
  7. I remember finding this thread helpful around the time gamergate hit. So much of the internet was (and still is) angry yelling about feminists, and this thread was not only a counterpoint to that, but one the consisted of more than just angry yelling in the other direction. Like, I had always kind of passively thought the angry internet anti-feminists were kind of ridiculous, but I never really engaged with it or really thought about the subject much, and this thread encouraged me to thing more critically about it. That said, as time went on, this and especially the now locked gamergate thread, became dumping grounds for "look at this outrageous thing the internet did today" and got increasingly angry.
  8. At the end of that Chris says "I have a vague memory of this" so uhh
  9. I could have sword Jake told the pork chop story on Idle Thumbs years ago, but Chris and Nick are reacting as if they've never heard it before. I don't know how else I could possible have known about that story though, so I'm now confused.
  10. I played the demo at Day of the Devs and I really enjoyed it. Unfortunately my computer is old and shitty and I haven't managed to find a Switch in stock anywhere yet. I'm glad to hear that people seem to be liking it though.
  11. http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2017/03/23/laser-firing-underwater-drones-protect-norways-salmon-supply-by-incinerating-lice.html "Laser-firing underwater drones protect Norway's salmon supply by incinerating lice" With a headline like that I don't think there's really anything I need to add.
  12. This is one of the all time great Idle Thumbs episode titles.
  13. Healthcare Simulator 2017: Plan of the Year edition.
  14. I just want to say that this might be my new favorite podcast. You guys are 3 for 3 on great episodes.
