    i think the cool thing about Jaws is that it's like a horror movie in disguise, you don't expect it to be a horror movie, so when it is, it's that much more effective

    When listening to Matt's speaking voice, I get a terrible feeling we might see the farewell to Sarge some time in the near future.

    I'm always surprised every time I see an actual bat because you don't expect them to be there. I always encountered them in the basement of the places I lived.

    I think Matt needs to give himself more credit. If he has a history of playing sax and from what I remember at one point worked as a professional musician I'd say it's a fair bet to say he has a solid grounding in music theory. This means he'd be able to play any instrument. He might not play it well but as with anything that comes with practice but he'd definitely be able to pick up a cello and play the Smoke on the Water riff or something.

    In regards to blowing out matches -> as a Saxophone player who's too lazy to go get matches and record himself doing it. 
    .

    It's about the aim a bit, but primarily it's about capacity and velocity. Assuming you have enough air that you can push out for longer than 1 second (blow out for 2 or potentially 3 seconds as hard as you can), even if it gets weaker towards the end, the backtrail of air pushing at your initial burst will "shotgun" the match and put it out.

      @JohnBrown13


      Well yeah, but what was he hoping from that? Was he hoping to breed super mosquitoes, or slowly kill them with radiation poisoning, or something else entirely?

      @Psykoma You're dealing with the mind of a child. It could have been all of those things. If I remember the original time Burnie talked about doing this, the idea was to get super mosquitos.

    I'm a first responder in a town in the path of totality a town of a population of about 1200 at our last fire station meeting we were told that there are an estimated 7,000 people coming here to camp to see it. And that's just in this town.

      Have fun with that.  Hope you get a bonus or something.  Maybe try just making as many spontaneous friends as possible in horrible situations and see what happens.

      *edit: I suppose this assumes something will go horribly wrong.  You're the first responder, you probably know the likelihood better than I do.

    Petition to get Matt to stop memeing on the podcast.  yang


    For real though, this was a great podcast. I'm a relatively new RT fan so it's interesting hearing Matt talk on a podcast. My only frame of reference for Matt has been the Jimmy John's fanfare thing. Also, thank god Washington has about a 90% on that eclipse so hopefully our supervisor will allow us to see it.

    Fun fact: New Zealand's only native land mammal is a fruit bat. They eat things off the ground instead of in the air like normal bats because everything native to NZ has to be slightly odd, I guess.

  • user-5761f47c31089

    Bats' wings look the way they do because evolution just happened to select for lengthened index fingers in their ancestors, and their middle and ring and pinkie fingers all lengthened as well. Birds' wings are predominately pinkie fingers, with the thumb and the first three being fused together at some point in the embryo stage, though they found a raptor descendant that was evolving in a bird-like direction that went the index route as opposed to the pinkie route (that's also why we don't have bird evolution mapped out yet, too many different species of raptor all started evolving in the same direction at the same time).

    There are facts and people who have been mislead to believe their feelings are fact. Don't legitimize this Banana Republic of an administration Burnie.

      Its not just the administration its also most of the media as well. I don't blame anyone for losing their faith in a lot of organizations today simply because they love to peddle narratives that directly benefit themselves. In a better world we wouldn't have been stuck between Hillary and Trump and also in a better world, biased narratives would have no place in the media. Just kind of sad on all sides really.

      Fox news' conception in the 80s. That's why now so many Americans can't even be bothered to listen to something that is factually true and completely unbiased (NPR, PBS) because the confirmed personal bias is why fox is so successful. They're telling white America exactly what they want to hear while practically everyone that they choose to lead is a krony capitalist business man that cares about furthering the 0's in their bank account and not much else. I know this not from watching "liberal" or "leftist" shows or propaganda, I was just actually taught to learn to read and interpret the actual law on paper that is being passed in our country and can easily come to that on my own. But that takes effort AND lets you know exactly how shitty the world actually is which doesn't feel good so most people just believe what is spoon fed to them.
