Topic: Stress

 

 

 

  • Luke talks about how he deals with stress, mainly through consumption. Drinking and eating just satisfies a part of his brain and gives him a sense of being able to control something.

 

 

  • Nabbit, at first, states that Oktober doesn’t have any stress relieving hobbies, but then comes to realize that her chicken ranching is very comforting to her. The panelists suspect she may start living in the coop.

 

 

 

 

Game: Drink It Or Sink It Challenge

 

This one needs to start off with a correction. Luke must have hit the Tequila a bit hard before making this one, because he forgot an ingredient. So the recipe that is posted is the way it is supposed to be made. The panelists had a slightly more “Beer-y” one. Yes you read that right. This is a Beer-Tail. Called the Playa Calmante. Nabbit felt the flavors didn’t meld quite right. Although, both he and Major Monocle admitted to not liking beer. Oktober liked it because of the tartness of the citrus fruits, which she said made it taste something like a shandy. Try it out and let us know what you think…the recipe is the post before these notes.

Would You Rather Wednesday (08-23-17)

This one has Nabbit choosing between super powers, teleportation or matter duplication… all while Luke tries to set the rules for such powers.

Topic: Wasting Time

 

 

  • Luke tells the most boring story in the history of podcasting as a way of introducing the topic. It involves waiting in line for bologna…prepare to be thrilled. So Oktober challenges everyone to tell a mundane story.

 

  • Major Monocle talks about his job as a supervisor and his 1172 hours of playing Destiny. It became such an issue that he ultimately bought Nabbit a copy just so he could go through and play the game again, so we’re giving him a twofer there.

 

  • Oktober was talking about shopping for Halloween blow molds. She remained coy for a moment about whether she actually intended to buy any of them however.

 

 

 

Game: Mis-Casting

 

This is a game where we take a quick plot summary of a movie and choose actors who are unlikely and/or just bad choices for roles in those films. Let the hilarity ensue!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Would You Rather Wednesday (08-16-17)

Here is a new midweek segment featuring one panelist, one “Would You Rather…” question and one “Gold Ribbon Recommendation. This one has Major Monocle deciding between consuming copious amounts of pickle brine or getting up close an personal with his best friend’s anatomy. After a palette cleanser, Major Monocle enjoys some time with gun’s (in somewhat questionable safety conditions) at the Demolition Ranch youtube channel.

Topic: Mechanically Modifying the Human Body

 

 

 

  • Nabbit talks about the advancements going on with 3-D printing and how new materials (mainly metals) and new techniques are making prosthetic exceedingly cheap. Leading to the futuristic idea that people will be able to download designs and print them at home, or as Oktober put it…”We are in the, future.

 

 

 

 

Game: “Be The Tree You Want To Be…”

 

A game about silly questions and scenarios that will bend your mind in some new and interesting shapes.

Topic: Water Parks: Extreme and Otherwise

 

  • The panel talks about how there aren’t a lot of stand alone water parks… most of them are attached to amusement parks, hotels or other attractions. Mainly because in many places they can only be open a few months a year.

 

  • Oktober discusses her dislike of water rides at amusement parks. The general consensus is that no one enjoys walking around in wet clothes the rest of the day.

 

 

 

  • The whole topic came from Luke’s viewing of Extreme Water Parks and marveling at some of the attractions that have come about since he was last at a water park (which was quite a while ago). Some of these seem so crazy, mainly because you have to wear a back brace just to go on it!

 

 

  • Everyone, but Major Moncle, can agree that the best ride at a water park is the Lazy River. Luke tells the story about how he suffered the only injury at a water park he’s ever had on a Lazy River….because he didn’t follow the rules, or think about how shallow it was.

 

  • Major Monocle talks about how he’d like to go tubing…not fully understanding that many people are already inebriated when they start that journey.

 

  • Nabbit had to go there….talking about how there is lots of this missing letter in every __OOL. And its another stupid excuse to bring up an Adam Sandler movie.

 

Game: “Drink It” Or “Sink It” Challenge: Morning Pool Water

 

Time to enjoy the pool water when it’s freshest….first thing in the morning. This shot uses Pineapple Rum and Avery’s Totally Gross Soda: Toxic Slime to give you a quick boost. Oktober downed two before the segment was over, so that was a ringing endorsement. Nabbit had some trouble getting passed our previous conversation about the contents of pool water and ultimately suggests we serve it with a lemon wedge so you could squeeze a little yellow into it. Major Monocle was on board with this shot as well. So, give it a try and let us know what you think. (It’s the post before this one.)
