Topic 1: Chicken Pox

Is it okay to give your kids chicken pox to avoid them getting it as an adult?


Topic 2: He has no shoes!

And no chance to be reinstated by baseball. Yeah, we’re talking about Shoeless Joe Jackson.


Topic 3: Beware the Ocean

No one should ever go into the ocean. Like ever. And here is a reason why.


Topic 4: Stupid Scientific Study

Scientists can be really stupid sometimes. Here is a study that proves it.

  • You’re a retard if you don’t vaccinate.

  • Tarmac492.1

    There is no vaccination for being a retard, however.

  • Do a movie you both hate and find an actor or someone involved in the production who also hates it.

  • Mr Nick Nightly

    I think this is my favorite episode, ever.

  • CoolHandJuke

    Shoeless Joe belongs in the Hall. His lifetime ban ended about 60 years ago…

  • CoolHandJuke

    Also, it’s getting harder to support the Nats when they blow giant leads. #imissLaroche

  • I got chicken pox when I was 29.

  • Lollipops with chicken pox? Sounds like biological warfare.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Is that ocean picture from a Dinosaur book? I remember that picture from when I was a kid. And not such a miserable bastard.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Not sure why I upvoted, but I did.

  • I take it as a sign of comfort.

  • Baseball players of the early 20th century….yay…

  • Tarmac492.1

    Isnt chicken pox when you are an adult pretty dangerous?

  • Tarmac492.1

    what every Austrian cinephile loves hearing about!!!

  • It can be, but not in my case. It can render you sterile though.

  • Tarmac492.1


  • Bop

    I still didn’t get the chicken pox so keep every chicken poxed person out of my neighbourhood.

  • God wanted to tell me something…

  • Bop

    I bloody hope not.

  • Stay away from chickens too.

  • Tarmac492.1

    That He is a fan of Whedon?

  • Tarmac492.1

    They might be done in that division, dude. Although, it is the Mets.

  • XD

  • A professional sportsman who was retarded… nothing much changed apparently.

  • 2007 – Up 7 with 17 to play…

    2008 – Up 3.5 with 17 to play…

  • I think I had that when I was 10 or so

  • Tarmac492.1

    Are pro skiers in Austria popular? WHat else they play there, football(soccer)

  • Actually have some scars on my face because of that

  • Tarmac492.1

    ’08 you can forgive. ’07, not so much. Although, the Yanks–choke artists–always have ’04!!!

  • Yeah many top pro skiers are from here. But outside Austria and Switzerland, nobody is interested in watching it!
    People love football here, but the teams are bad, compared to other countries in Europe.

  • Tarmac492.1

    I like the Mets chances this year, to be honest. With that pitching staff they should be able to beat anybody. It seems they have some offense now, as well. Is the bullpen still shaky? I would actually move Colon to the pen in the playoffs.

  • Why would anyone want the nickname “shoeless”—?

  • Tarmac492.1

    all one ever needs to know about baseball. Pretty genius writing. Fuck you Mamet for being talented!!!

  • Great, great film

  • What? I’m old and I drink

  • Tarmac492.1

    I think my favorite DePalma film.

  • I really can’t pick just one of his

  • Oh, Abe mentioned knowing functioning alcoholics. Never mind.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Carlito’s Way was great, too!! I liked Sisters. Fucking crazy shit.

  • Bullpen has its moments but been solid lately. Colon could be a great long man in the pen. I like Reed too. Clippard was a great pickup too. Nats regretting that one. I was at Clippard’s MLB debut. Starter for the Yanks vs. the Mets.

  • Sisters, Obsession, Carrie, The Fury, Dressed to Kill, Blow Out, Body Double, Scarface, Casualties of War, Untouchables, Carlito’s Way, Raising Cain, Mission; Impossible….

  • CoolHandJuke

    Harvey is done, yo…

  • CoolHandJuke

    I used to be one. Not so much these days…

  • Abe

    Which part?

  • Abe

    The nickname happened, if I remember correctly, that he was getting blisters on his feet from the shit cleats he was wearing so he just played in his socks.

  • Old?

  • Abe

    You can really get some serious scars from it. It’s amazing we just used to infect kids on purpose.

  • Well, it kinda doesn’t change anything in this face. For the acne scarring alone, in a certain light I look like a burn victim

  • Bop

    Definitely my favorite DePalma film.

  • Tarmac492.1

    we should do a podcast on which film is better Scarface or Carlito’s Way and why!!

  • Tarmac492.1

    Not sure who is creepier, the gross, arachnid looking crab or the child molesting serial killer holding it?

  • Stalkeye

    LOL@”What the White Man did to my ancestors”.

  • Stalkeye

    Good Minisode however, i wish it were a “Megasode” instead, but you guys have other obligations I take it.

  • Stalkeye

    That latter of course.

  • Stalkeye

    No scarier than what is on the Skin of many Humans..
