    Congrats Burnie, you just described every sport...

    Burnie, we all know that the ball has to stay in the cup for it to count.

    I blacked out once. I hurt myself pretty badly at work about 4 years ago. My supervisor sat me down to get the first aid kit, and the next thing I remember is waking up on the floor wondering how I got there.

    I talked to my doctor about it, and she said people pass out and fall after injury because it's basically the brain rebooting. 

    Also speaking of crazy bosses, my husband used to work for a woman that bat shit crazy. My husband worked for a small-ish cab company in Vegas. It was very profitable (as any cab company would be in such a transient city) So they had the nicest gear in town. But his bitch would go from 0-100 in a blink of an eye. One day she gave my husband a brand new laptop for the great work he was doing, the next she screamed at him for something that didn't even happen in his department. Then, a week or two later, she gives a $1,000 watch, but then has a PI follow him for a week. On top of that, she would call him and text him any time she damn well pleased. My husband was working 7 days a week, 12-14 hour days, for this crazy bitch. He took one day off because we were moving into a new house, she calls him, and demands he come into work. I thank God daily that this psycho bitch is no longer in our lives.

    I don't like when shows like Deadliest Warrior will use one MAJOR aspect of a warrior ONCE and not use it again, or when you see things like Reddit posts on Solid Snake vs Master Chief where every reason you give why MC will win the OP will say "well he dose not have his armor, or weapons, or Cortana etc. etc." but I think Death Battle do these show downs very well!

    There's actually already something to measure ball size, it's called an orchidometer. It was on a British TV show called Would I Lie To You and turned out to be true.

    I want to throw my two cents in here.. but I work in the oil field and a twelve hour day is a short day. Fourteen to Sixteen hours a day is a very normal day. Twenty four to thirty six hours is a regular experience when switching from days to nights/visa versa. In the last Seven years I have worked more that eighty to ninety hours straight on more than a dozen occasions. People complain about long hours but I feel that they have no idea what long hours actually are..

      I'm honestly curious, why would you choose a dying, notoriously brutal profession like that? Was it just close and lucrative? 

    • whilkare FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      2 months ago

      It was close initially, and very lucrative. It has allowed me to check off a lot of things on the 'adult' list, like owning a nice house and car, travelling the world with work and on my own dime. Also, I am good at what I do and I love the work and the challenge it provides. I think that the sacrifice of my body is well worth the reward received.

    I'm surprised that climate change was never touched upon in this podcast. Burnie says that we can't change the weather, but we do have an effect on the likelihood that climate-related disasters happen.

    Aarons' Boss is way too much like my old Coke snorting boss. Right down to the smashing things and strange mind games. Coupled with the hilarious odd rants.

    It wasn't funny at the time, I totally got what Aaron meant when he said 'like a weird mentor'.

    so, gonna put this out here in reference to 1:15ish about the evacuation. kind of what Aaron said, the government said to shelter n place. it would have been on the people in those positions to evacuate the area. As someone who has been in these types of storms, it is very easy to look back and say "we should have left" but in many cases you don't know until the last second. Looking at the current situation in Florida the evacuation is happening days before the storm will become a threat and there is still a possibility those people are evacuating for nothing. Its a tough decision. Do you displace hundreds of thousands of people possibly for no reason, or do you tell them to ride it out and deal with the situation that comes up after the fact?

      Were there people saying after Sandy hit that NYC should've been evacuated? Well, probably, but anybody can see that that would be impractical. Same with Houston -- there's almost an order of magnitude more people in the Houston metro area than all of south Louisiana, New Orleans included. (~400k in NO, 120k in Lafayette, call it an even million with all the smaller cities and towns in Cajun country, vs. 6.3M in the Houston metro area.)

      Yeah, that's an interesting point. On the other side of that coin, I had concerned internet friends messaging me all week worrying about my safety, asking if I had water stored up and such, because I'm in Texas. I'm way up in Longview (a good bit straight east from Dallas), it rained just enough to give me an excuse to not mow the lawn that weekend.


      And amusingly, the time we DID have a tropical storm/former hurricane (Ike) get all the way up here, I was out in the worst of it, since I was a newspaper photographer at the time.

      Indeed. The wilder fires have been quite a bit north of where I am and east of Vancouver . Yet the sky\ overall daylight has been orange, smoke cloudy , and the strong smell of a smoke for the past two days. The winds have really been carrying stuff around. It must be so much worse further east

      It's a reference to sports commentary, you've got the play-by-play announcer that narrates the action, and the other guy, often a retired player, for "color commentary" making jokes, speculating on the players' thoughts, filling in the dead air during timeouts, etc.. Seriously, have you never heard the term, or are you just really bad at being edgy?
