Podcasts Take A Holiday!

Tuesday, June 1st, 2021

We did something different this week! Andrew, Justin, and Brian got together in Demeo, a co-op VR tabletop RPG. Spells and tempers flare in this group videogame. See the entire stream here in video:

In Demeo, each player picks a class and they work together to overcome procedurally-generated dungeons, challenging enemies, and the siren song of gold. This is best experienced in video as the guys had played together before and don’t spend much time narrating the action. Enjoy your Memorial Day and we’ll see you with a new episode of Weird Things next week. (Video may contain a couple moments of spicy language).

First FAA-Approved Drone Delivery Isn’t Amazon – It’s a Medical Supply Delivery to People in Need

Sunday, July 19th, 2015

Drone delivery services have faced a LOT of set backs, legal issues and red tape.

But now all of that seems to be slowly melting away and all the starting parameters and legislation should be ironed out with in the year.

Recently the FAA has allowed testing of drone delivery in Wise County, Virginia where poverty is quickly taking hold as the coal-mining community loses handfuls of jobs and, in turn businesses, because of new energy alternatives.

What’s more exciting than the delivery is just how ready the community, which seems kinda old-school, is to embrace this new technology and become a testing ground for more drone-based experiments and missions in the hopes of getting their local economy back on track.

Cupcake Toothpaste and Fried Chicken Candles – Food Stuff You Can’t Eat But Want to

Friday, November 22nd, 2013

The nation’s alleged problem with obesity is probably going to continue getting worse because of stuff like this:

Kathy Werking (who’s also creating a mint julep-scented candle) has formulated a candle that, according to its description, will:

“Let the fresh, fried sizzle of savory golden goodness drift into your hearts and homes with one of our most delectable creations to date.”

What is the one thing you want to do when you smell fried chicken? Say it together, “Eat fried chicken!”

After you’re done chewing through your fried chicken candle wax, you can brush that taste out with dessert with this:

It’s sort of ironic, isn’t it? Also available? Bacon and Nihilist.

Wait…what’s Nihilist taste like? Nothing. There’s no flavor. No color. Nothing.

Except will power and moderation and if you’re using cupcake-flavored toothpaste to brush your teeth? We’re guessing neither of those apply to you anyway.

Nigerian Woman Gives Birth to Horse-Baby!

Monday, September 17th, 2012

Right up there with Geena Davis’ nightmare of giving birth to Jeff Goldblum’s little baby ‘Brundlefly’ comes a story about a woman giving birth…

To a horse.

During a program about prophecy, a female member of the Worshippers of the World Liberation Ministry began screaming during a prayer session and began bleeding from her girl-parts.

Evangelist Silva Wealth, referred to as the General Overseer of the church told journalists that a revelation came that a woman among them had an issue and that something was blocking her womb.

Wealth claimed that as prayers from church-goers became more instense, the unidentified woman started delivering ‘the object’.

A cleric of the church wouldn’t go near the thing:

“I can’t describe the object. We have seen people that vomited several things during our service but not this type of thing. God has been blessing our ministry with prophesies and miracles, “he said.

That ‘object’ was a still-born horse.

As people begin to flock in droves to the church where this event took place, we can only imagine what kind of disturbing swag the inevitable gift shop is going to be pushing.
