Podcast 138: Swords, Stocks, And Immortality

August 05, 2012

One of us met up with a listener this week at a secluded location.  Did anyone get cut?  Was there uncomfortable silence?  Hugging?  Listen to find out!

We got a Potato Nut update, talked a little Olympics, and got a review of Indy Bundle 7.  Can you live forever?  Scientists are working on it, and we talk about when this is expected to happen, and what you can expect “immortality” to be like.  Also, Facebook bought Face.com, and we talk about facial recognition databases, tiny robots, and how the world is turning into the movie Minority Report.

Turdhat started up a project investing 100,000 dollars of online “money” in stocks he picks, including Zynga, and we’ll check every week and see if he goes broke or shows us all how stupid we are.  Listen to hear his “insider information”.

We hit your phone calls and emails and talked a bit about NASA, then had a special listener requested Sword News segment.  In the after-show we had a quick Turdhat Help You and Imitating Nicholson, including Zum taking a crack at it!  All this and more, and who doesn’t like more.  More is great.  Enjoy the more.
