    I drooled from laughter twice while watching this podcast: once when they were talking about the gram and the meter, and again when Burnie broke down after Gavin wasn't helpful with the "skull bones" question.

    Waze is an awesome app. Very handy to have for anticipating/working around traffic when driving through California.

    On the matter of viewing a live stream. I imagine it is "Oh I don't want to watch it now, will it be online so I can watch it later?" most of the time. But there are some, like myself, people ask that because I CAN NOT watch the live stream as it is live.
    Reason, personally, for that is because my father moved our family to a farm and now we have no real internet. And I mean a farm, with cows and chickens, a 120 year old barn, and fields of crops. And the cable companies won't but up a internet line to the nearest phone lines because it's still so far from the house that they would loss money installing it based on what we would use, so naturally they are like "Nah, fuck that." And back when i said "Real internet", is that we have a 10 GB hot spot device of internet. To be used by the whole (2 adults, 2 at home college kids, and on teenager) family for the month.
    I wanted to view the 12-hour live stream so bad, and if I was too that just an watching 1 hour would have killed a fraction of our monthly limited. I would of wanted to view this year's, by the time I'm writing this, panel streams cause I came short in making it to RTX this year. But I just did not have the capabilities.
    I have to drive half an hour to the nearest library to download week old audio podcast's and Patch's cause that's my only way too.
    This my seem like a huge rant, it partly is, but it is more of a point of perspective to people you've said can't watch it. Like you said that you "Get that". I wanted to give a closer perspective.

    A friend used my toilet, then a little while later, I heard running water... my bathroom had flooded. :(

    Haha Gavin is absolutely right about the fork/cutlery switching etc, he phrased it weirdly again though.

    In Europe at least, which is where I'm from, you ought to use a fork and a knife at all times and eat as is, with the fork in the left hand and knife in the right, using the knife to aid food onto the fork if necessary (with stuff of a different texture, like mashed potatoes)

    I feel like its a very 'american' thing to switch hands etc - but in the end, food enters my mouth, I'm happy - do whatever the f you wanna do

    gavin is right about the switch hands for the knife and fork being rude in britain but it is obviously different elsewhere
    e.g in india they eat with there right hand and not there left because their left is their kack hand

    I have worked in fast food for 6 years and the amount of crazy people that I've had to deal with is unbelievable...there was an old man who asked if sold bananas and then another old guy who literally shit not in the toilet but next to the toilet and somehow got it over the walls...

    I used to work at Rite Aid as security and we had to ban this one customer because he would come in, walk around, and shit all over the floor for no reason at all. He was completely conscious that he was doing this and it wasn't because we pissed him off or anything. He actually wanted to just come in to shit on our floor

    Wow... Hearing Americans talking about etiquette... so wrong. Gavin is right, you are supposed to eat with your fork in your left hand, as it would be when you cut the food. The only time you should swap the for into your left hand is if you have peas or something that requires you to use the fork as a 'scoop'.
    From the British etiquette guide: "When used with a knife or spoon, the fork should be held in the left hand, in much the same way as the knife, with the prongs facing downwards. On its own, it is held in the right hand, with the prongs facing upwards, resting on the fingers and secured with the thumb and index finger."

      Etiquette is retarded. As long as you aren't slop lying food over yourself, you should be able to eat however you want without people saying crap about it. The fact that there is a book on British etiquette is ridiculous.

    Just speaking from personally experience. I think the job where you see the most amount of crazy people has got to be in retail, specifically grocery. Everybody has to eat, so everybody has to go grocery shopping sooner or later. I've seen some crazy people working in grocery. Even "normal" people will lose their minds because X product in sold out. Or people will have an argument at home or work, then go shopping for food and flip out at the stock clerk or cashier over nothing because they're displacing their frustration on them. I once had an old man threaten me because they changed packaging on the sour cream.

    So yesterday I was gonna listen to this podcast, but I wanted save it for a long train ride I had the following day, so I randomly picked podcast #225 which also happened to be right before RTX 2013 (crazy!). I listened and really enjoyed the conversation about the oddly specific quantifications for the mass of a kilogram, the length of a metre, and the duration of a second. Today, I listened to the latest podcast (#278). wtf.

    I had to FUCKING EXPLAIN what 411 meant to a couple of people at work the other day and they were both older than me and I got so angry that they didn't know what calling 411 meant.

    Like this lady got information and got our phone number for our pizza store out of her delivery range and I had to give her a number for one near here and when I hung up I was talking about it with the others there and they had zero idea what I was talking about and I got so irrationally annoyed that they didn't know about it.

    This was a fun podcast, I had to listen to it again today. I loved the skull conversation and I never really though about it but I do game design as a hobby and all of my skull models for the desert are all the top half.

    I'm a little disapointed in Gus about the definition of a kilogram. I would think that either Ryan or Gus would know that water is its most dense at 4 degrees Celsius. The deepest part of any frozen body of water will be 4 degrees Celsius. One of the most unique properties of water is that it is less dense in solid form. Pretty much all other solid state materials (if not all) will sink in a liquid of any temperature of the same objects.

    This is the reason why we get ice on top of our lakes and why ice floats in glasses. Science is fun.
    Also, all you really have to do to make pure water is distill it. Easily done before the 1700's

    I know he's just reading but at 1:27:50 even though he's just reading, when Gus looks down, it's the most upset I've ever seen a grown bearded man..

    It seems like more effort to switch your fork hand mid-meal. Fuck étiquette, I have my fork in my left hand and knife in my right because I can't be bothered to swap cutlery.

    New couch looks so comfortable. I've seen some videos on "suicide" headaches and they look absolutely horrifying to witness, not to mention being the person experiencing them. Also I was not aware snooze settings were default 9 minutes, I had always assumed they were 10-15 minutes because I have honestly never used my snooze button on my alarm. I can't wait to watch the RT Podcast from the convention because you folks have some of the best fan interaction. Have fun and be safe this week to all staff and fans in Austin!

    I get really frustrated when they bad mouth VidCon. Maybe it's because I'm a huge fan of the VlogBrothers, and it's Hank's pet project, but I feel like they make generalizations about YouTube vloggers. Quite a few of the YouTube communities (especially the NerdFighters with the multiple charities and possibly the best discourse of any community I've ever been a part of) are really fun and friendly places

    I understand that they didn't directly say anything bad about John or Hank Green, but I think having just a "euuugh" reaction to VidCon as a whole because of a few of the more pretentious YouTube personalities is really unfair to what seems like a really fun and innovative event.

    But this might just be a difference in personalities between the podcasters and I. Just irks me when someone I really respect and like doesn't seem to like other people or things I like and respect, but that's just me being stupid.

    Also, I've never actually gotten to go to VidCon, so maybe it's not what i hope and expect it to be.

    The new couch reminds me of the insulation you see on soundproof booths.

    Speaking of dinosaurs with ears. Age of Extinction Grimlock has weird stupid dog ears. I know they are supposed to be horns, which T-Rex's don't have anyway, but most of the toys make them look like dog ears.
