    There is another method to achieve clear ice.  In the 2006 season Mythbusters did an episode where the created fire without matches.  One method they used was to shape an orb of clear ice into a lens to focus the sun.  To achieve this they visited an company that makes ice blocks for sculptures and it was revealed that agitating the water through either aeration or vibration keeps air bubbles from freezing in the water and leaves you with clear ice.

    I have one of those training masks that reduce oxygen intake.  I don't use it for weight training but for running.  It helps improve my breathing habits, forcing me to take longer deeper breaths rather than short quick ones.  Also it helps elevate my heart rate from doing simple cardio workouts on gym machinery. I wouldn't recommend it for anything else besides helping with cardio workouts.  Blaine is correct when he says it doesnt replicate high altitude training or increase red blood count.

    According to Mark Hamill.. He was the only person that knew and they dubbed over the spoken line in post. Even Harrison Ford talked to Mark during the premier asking him why he didn't tell Harrison about that. There is an interview with Hamill where he goes into great detail about it.

    About boiling the water before freezing: notice that your kettle you boil water in always accumulates residue on the inside. Since the imperfections obviously stick to the kettle, that means there are less of them in the water. However, residue from and old kettle usually breaks into flakes and starts floating around, so all in all that method might not be very good. Just putting the water through Brita filter is probably much better

    Burnie is obviously free to change his appearance however he wants, but think id be disappointed if he did.  I find him to be a pretty attractive guy as he is.

    This is what I like about Rooster Teeth. Acknowledging the clip show as a mistake and saying they'll either never do it again or only put one out as an extra, EVEN if they find out that the video did well view-wise. You folks are great, keep being awesome.

    I do telecommunications for the deaf and hard of hearing and let me tell you calling customer support for almost any place is terrible, they hang up, they refuses, mostly angry, just because it takes too long. I love websites that are hey we have a life chat.  I've also called at&t and the dude fell asleep on me! 

    Burnie is 100% right you can not hide your in the bathroom on the phone.

    The David Prowse thing wasn't quite how you guys were talking about it. There was an interview that he had in England before Empire Strikes Back had even been announced. He was joking around and basically guessing what might happen in the sequel to Star Wars and he said, "oh wouldn't it be great if..." and then proceeded to "spoil" one of the most iconic plot twists ever. But according to a documentary recently released on Netflix, Prowse had no recollection of this and some of the Lucasfilm higher ups didn't even know it happened. According to people that worked on the film Lucas didn't even decide that this would be the twist until the day of filming.

      Yeah, and then Lucas dicked him over in episode 6. I feel bad for the guy because everyone thinks he did it because people only know of this rumor and spread it like it's true

     the Return of the King still get's me every time. Howard Shore's score, coupled with great direction and acting of such a poignant moment (and Galadriel's smile is not at all creepy, Matt!) always makes me a little teary-eyed. That and the ending with Sam saying "Well, I'm back" and closing the door. (The only ending the film has, in-spite what many people claim)

    Weird fact about the year without a summer. Because it was too cold to be outside Mary Shelly and her friends stayed inside and told ghost stories, which lead to her writing Frankenstein.

    The coldest time of the day is just before sunrise. The hottest part is usually an hour before sunset. 


    Also Austin seems to have extreme temperature changes. 80's to low 40's.   Where I am it just stays cold all winter and one can get used to it. Seems much more difficult to acclimate there.

    I feel you about the blocking content. I work for a company that gets hit by that a lot and man... I wish the people who contacted us understood. And even after explaining about the government thing all you get is; "Well why can't you call them and fix it!?", and the head goes into the hands and the tears flow.

    Guy who works for a weather company here. Our mechanism to determining what time to cut the low off at is pretty simple. 6 AM. The low for 'Today' is actually the predicted minimum temperature between now and 6 AM tomorrow. This is because the lowest temperature of the day is consistently around 2-3 AM so we make specific alterations to determining what 'Today' is (most news stations also cater to this idea).
