  4. Yeah but you can just "hone" it, you don't have to "hone in on" it. It's already what "hone" means.
  5. I don't even know, I've never watched him either. I just know he's kind of a professional youtube idiot?
  6. That was one of my favorite moments as well. An excellent and true observation.

  12. Yeah, I fear there's too much.
  13. Yeah but I didn’t even do that with y’all! It was Nick, and he was totally blatant about it!
  14. It hasn't been posted as a podcast yet but it will be soon.
  15. I think Jake has an almost violent instinctual reaction to other people trying to introduce phraseology that he perceives as being affected or foreign to the speaker. It's somewhat ironic because I think out of anyone I know, Jake is the most likely to adopt a new speech pattern or phrase that he will subconsciously spread to everyone around him.
