Swat team at my place

 

Chris and Roy exploring Plan B, potato guns, NASCAR real stock car racing, Fraggle Rock, parents partying, small town law enforcement, inter-office mail order brides, doppelgang-bang, consolidating public services, shady roommate and the SWAT team, strippers making $1 bill deposits at atlantic city, and more.

Hope you enjoy! Tony

Editor’s pick:  Roy :”I don’t have time to tuck in these $1 – I got a guy for that.” (47:10)

Be a Life Long Learner:

In building your own potato gun/tee shirt launcher, be sure you use schedule 40 PVC. It’s pressure rated, so it’s less likely to explode into your face, or rip off your hand. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyaZipWVjrE)

Old-Timey LASIK

Podcast about the last things we’d want to see before getting laser eye surgery, age range we would work at trader joes, fear of nanobots, pizza as a pizza topping, the pope’s first tweet, fluids to use in the bedroom, my “graduation” ceremony. We tried out Roy’s paper fortune teller and had a good time, despite not having any salmon.

All my love, Tony

Growth of Computing Power

Technological singularity – the time when super-smart computers design super smart things at an ever faster rate. Unlike physical things, like a population explosion in rabbits taking 10 years, technology/intelligence doesn’t need “time to grow”. This could theoretically mean that computer intelligence could get out of hand in a matter of days or even hours.

Nanobots (nanorobotics) – machines that are so tiny, that a nanobot working on a cell in the human body would be similar to working on a building. Additionally, you could inject a robot into your bloodstream, and they could do the work, and just get pee’d out or something.
