  1. Ah, from the comments it seems like they finally acknowledge the thing with Nick I've been asking about for weeks ever since Janel announced on Twitter that she was moving to Canada (I rightfully assumed Nick would be going with her) I feel like ending the podcast because Nick is moving away would have been the old, boring, safe thing to do. Important If True is anything but old, boring, and safe! I say forge onwards! What's Sean Vanaman up to anyway? Maybe we're in a time loop and you have to bring Steve Gaynor in for a while, then Nick, then Sean, then Danielle, then Nick again, etc. Chris has to move back and forth across the country a few times.
  2. Nick leaving SF again?
  3. Hey, so I saw on Twitter that Nick's GF is moving to Vancouver for work. Does this mean we have to dust off the ole "F Nick Breckon"? Sorry if this is a weird, personal question. I figure if they didn't want people to know they wouldn't have said anything.
  4. I was also familiar with said poop story, but could not remember where I had heard it. Also that wire Orthodox Jews use to signify a "house" is everywhere in NYC, and it's totally a loophole. Same as Orthodox Jews hiring someone not of the Jewish faith to turn their electrical appliances on/off, or having on elevator in their building that operates automatically on Friday nights so they aren't "operating machinery".
  5. Maybe Nick just assumed he was dreaming it in his ill video game haze.
  6. I mean, it makes sense. I like sneezing too because it feels good, but I also hate when I have sneezing fits where I can't stop. It's sorta like those people who have mysterious fits of sexual arousal and orgasm constantly to the point where it's painful and debilitating.
  7. File footage: Nick Breckon, age 9.
  8. I'm gonna miss this podcast. Having Spaff on was a breath of fresh air, which ironically is what the Thumbs feel killed the show originally (having too many guest hosts)
  9. Also regarding naming schemes in school, we had three kids named James in my elementary school. James Delaney, James Gasparino, and James Perry. We all just called them by their last names to differentiate, except for Perry, who refused to be referred to as such, and demanded to be called James. I mean, we ignored him and just called him Perry anyway, because he didn't get the rights to the name just because the other two weren't using it. Also he was a really big jerk and bully, so even though we were all shitty kids he deserved it. I think the first time I met someone who I referred to by a nickname that wasn't just a shortened version of their regular name was a college roommate who was from New Zealand, so he just went by Kiwi because he said people got his name wrong a lot. His real name wasn't hard to pronounce, and it was easily shortened to a nickname that would have been easy to say, but I didn't push it. Also I think he went to school with a lot of wealthy bullies who purposely made fun of his name, so I can see why he might take refuge in a nickname he chose.
  10. Chris always goes by Chris at work? That's not what I heard.
  11. Important If True 7: Human Behavior

    You know, I'm not even sure. This post was hastily tapped out and submitted on a subway train (much like the one where the saxaphone battle happened) for the short pocket of time where I had reception. It was just this kneejerk, gut reaction to post this once everyone started doing the "A Bug's Life doesn't actually exist" jokey gaslight thing to varying degrees. Like, 2016 was rough for all of us, and I've seen too many people do that for stuff in a serious way for things that actually matter, and I guess I got legit upset by Chris pretending that "A Bug's Life" wasn't a thing (cue people putting their virtual hand on my shoulder and saying "But CoolJammer00, A Bug's Life doesn't exist" like the world's most insipid version of The Game) It's silly that it bothered me, and sorry if I was being jerky. Please enjoy your wedding.
  12. Important If True 7: Human Behavior

    I can't tell how much of the Thumbs' new, "joking" insistence on things that aren't true is a commentary on the solipsistic and self centered nature of the Mandela Effect, and how much is them just finally mentally breaking down and fully submitting to 2017 and the rise of fake news.
  13. Idle Thumbs 304: The Game Shack

    Ooh, tons of bleeping in this episode for some reason I assume whatever it was has been excised from the stream recording?
  14. This is like that troll video back when everyone had Kinect hooked up to their XBones and someone made their XBL gamer tag "XboxShutdown" so people would freak out during games of COD
  15. Idle Thumbs 303: Great Play Dad

    I don't remember if it was this episode (this is what happens when you have so many episodes and I listen to them all in a row) but I don't know if I've ever felt a greater video game kinship with Jake and his reluctance to get a Wii U for Zelda and then have to buy a Switch in a few months for Mario if it's good. Like, I never had a Wii or a Wii U, and there are Wii U games I would want to play on it, but the Switch is the new and sexy thing with only 1 game on it.
