Episode 131 - Sex Kidneys and Other Distinctions

He looks like he's enjoying those kidneys... a lot.

He looks like he's enjoying those kidneys... a lot.

00:00:00 - What's the point of being smart if you don't get to argue about the little things? The Paleopals start the show by breaking down some of the pedantic scientific distinctions brought up on io9. 00:27:09 - While there may be no real distinction between left and right, we know for sure that at least one hand of each Paleopal holds a drink, the question is, what is it? For Patrick it's and Old Dominion Oak Barrel Stout. Kelly enjoys a Real Ale Rio Blanco, complete with a drawl. Ryan enjoys an Aviation from Juliana. It's a classic pre-prohibition cocktail, and Juli has been mixing up a storm. Finally, Charlie imbibes a silver bullet.

00:32:42 - Will Ryan been able to let the others speak when Trailer Trash Talk tackles Marvel's The Avengers? The only way to find out is to listen.

00:45:37 - We now know newts use their kidneys for sex. We're not sure exactly how, we're not sure exactly why, but we know that it happens. Thank you, science!

00:54:24 - PaleoPOWs are a lot like sex kidneys, if you really want one you'll have to go and find it. Ryan has a bit of coin in the form of a donation from Doug S. Thanks Dough! Patrick answers a question from retroflatus, who in return promises to buy a mug. How'd we do, retroflatus? Charlie has an e-mail from Pedro P. critiquing the decline of our transitional powers. We do our best. And lastly, Kelly has a comment from Bob about where the atmosphere ends. How appropriate!
