Terrance’s lawyer called to let us know
we have paid our dues, we’ve been let go
It is a day of celebration
We shall indulge in some libation
This has been a major breakthrough
And just before Christmas too
We thought what a nice gesture it would be,
to invite them over for nice cup of tea
They accepted, Hooray! all shall be well,
our hearts went a flutter and began to swell
But then it began to rain ice from the sky,
“Oh dear,” said Pete, “won’t they all die?”
We held out hope and shoveled like mad,
But alas we saw no one and then became sad
“Wait,” shouted Aaron, “what’s that over there?”
As a cloud of black floated through the air
We were all so scared we thought we’d be beaten
Chewed up and mashed and then excreted
But what was this, it was a voice that we know
It was the angelic ring of Terrance’s widow
“Hark,” said she, “Don’t shoot, we come bearing a gift.”
We thought, how sweet, and that was the end of the rift
With smiles we put on the kettle and sat by the fire
While his relatives were all sitting on wire
As Tim told stories they all listened
Aaron stared out the window as the snow glistened
Aaron thought of the podcast and decided,
no way not tonight that would be misguided.
In episode 51 Roy Moore and Trump and net neutrality are the upwardly mobile topics. Is the Earth round or flat, disk shaped or spherical, is it a chocolate orange or is it a pumpkin spice cookie with icing only on the edge? The third segment we do a tool review, sort of. We tried something new and may have failed. Forward we shall push through the murky waters of failure and despair.All we have to do is make it to morning and we’ll be alright. Eastward bound for the sun shall rise again.
In episode 50 we discuss Trump, Flynn, and the head of the FCC. What Flynn did this week and why the head of the FCC is a total twat-waffle. Universal basic income is the second topic. Is it a good thing or a bad thing or is it something that we will not be able to get away from. Do we have a choice but to go into the direction of having a basic income given to us by the Feds? The last segment asks, “Are driver-less semi-trucks or fully autonomous semi-trucks the future?
This is getting out of hand. Now Terrance’s great grand kids are sabotaging our recording equipment. We came into the garage to record and found that the mixer only had one working input. Upon further inspection we had found cricket feces inside of the mixer along with several chewed wires and five corpses. We assume that it took more than one generation of them to do enough damage to the mixer. We cleaned the mixer of the corpses and as we did we noticed that there was so much hate left in the bodies that it ate through the board. We held a funeral for the mixer, it was lovely.
In episode 48 a conversation ensues about the FCC and net neutrality, again. Because we apparently live in a world where people actually believe large corporations. A man you have never heard of is the topic of the second segment. We discuss his political/religious views at great length. The video linked below should be watched first to get an idea of what we are talking about (only watch the first 15 minutes, unless you’re a sycophant and enjoy this kind of thing). Where have all of the automotive manuals gone? asks Aaron in the third segment.
You know that thing you did in the back of your car that one time? Yeah, that happened to us. We were arrested for failing to pay a court mandated hourly allowance to Terrance’s widow. She claims that we killed him. We claim it was the drinking and anger issues. Unfortunately that means that there will not be an episode this week because we spent a good portion of the weekend in cricket prison waiting to get released on bail. And yes the prison is exactly as small as you think it is. By the time this is over with paying the fee we will have been paying for six months, or 28 generations of Terrance’s progeny.
In episode 46 a discussion takes place on whether or not the Democrats winning elections and taking Republican seats is actually good for everybody. Sexual harassment and other weird sexual behavior in Hollywood is also on the topic list. In the next segment Tim wants to talk about Euthyphro’s dilemma and where your moral compass may have come from. In the last segment Aaron asks, “Why do people buy new cars every 3-5 years.” It’s because they are lazy that’s why.
In episode 45 we talk about the implications of what Papadopoulos may or may not have said to the feds with regard to the Russia investigation. In the next segment Pete wants to talk about “flow moments”. I think it has something to do with plumbing although I am not entirely sure. The last segment asks, “Do you become a better driver if you play auto racing games?” Thoughts?
In episode 44 we discuss the ruling that the FCC has made and how that affects companies like Sinclair Media. The next topic is sex robots, (think Futurama),are they bad or are they good that is the question. The last segment is about rotary engines and why they get so much hate.
In episode 43 we were invited to record at Griffs Brewery in Spencerport NY. We graciously obliged. Topic the first is about cellphone companies and what they are doing with your information and just how much information they access. Topic the second is beer because, well, we are at a brewery, what else would we talk about. Topic the third Aaron asks, “Why do people always think it was better back “then” when it pertains to cars and auto racing?”
