Episode 184 - A Coordinated Launch and Landing

Practice makes perfect.
Practice makes perfect.

00:00:00 - For the first time in the history of ever, scientists have discovered a bug with functional gears in its legs! Jacob makes sure  to explain it in such a way as to not give the Creationist any footing from which to perform a perfectly timed leap. Or something like that. The point is this evolved naturally and is awesome.

00:13:36 - Jacob did intelligently design his drink, which he's calling the Dragon's Tongue and can be made by shaking:

  • 1 oz. Fireball Whiskey
  • 1/2 oz. peach schnapps
  • 3 oz. cranberry juice

Even though he's not on a plane Charlie enjoys some Canada Dry ginger ale. And Ryan tries to improve a Coors Light by dropping a shot of Hop Vodka in it.

00:19:34 - The secret is out when the guys pan the seemingly lackluster and derivative preview of The Secret Lives of Dorksin this week's Trailer Trash Talk!

00:27:44 - Some comrades in scientific arms have managed to track down a long lost Soviet lander on Mars using HiRISE, which apparently anyone can ask to be pointed at whatever you want. Communism working for the good of science on the red planet. How ironic.

00:40:43 - PaleoPOWs are a lot like orbiting cameras, anything can become a target. Charlie kicks the segment off with a new recurring donation from John B. Thanks, John! Jacob gets an update on the road trip he didn't even know he was on from Pogos. And Ryan reads an iTunes review solely for the pleasure of getting to pronounce LZA.
