I loved Tim’s impression of a construction boss complaining about OSHA breathin’ down his neck because it sounded like 45-65% of his Duke Nukem impression, kinda like if Ol’ Duke had run into hard times and lost his Nukem
dumbest videogame argument definitely heated grade school debate about how to pronounce “Guile” in which not a single one of us had it right
Cross posting yeso from this week’s podcast thread to add on (and not to correct):
The electric Brazilian Street Fighter character name is pronounced “Bee-lahn-ka”. Because he’s B-tier.
@exodus Brandon wtf how did you so viciously skewer a particular component of Ontario accents, which is not necessarily characteristic of a Toronto accent, which is the strange grammatical transformations and overuse tendencies that the word “there” has gone though?? Got my head spinning there bud
Oh dang. Can you not pick your music playlist in GT7? You could all the way back in 3 if I recall.
hellomrkearns I think there’s no option to just play a certain genre or exclude a certain genre. I’ve only played GT5 and was immediately overwhelmed by 200 or so tracks with check boxes next to them.
The seizing of your leg before a horrible cramp is the first few seconds when a text box appears in a cutscenes and you realize you can’t speed it up/skip it and you just have to wait for it to scroll at it’s own pace
a might gory but fake: i found this clip of the (hypothetical) silent hill: osha game.
I thought Tim’s joke about Florida talk radio was pretty good
I asked Esper to use this for the lightning round this week but it wasn’t compatible with the mix
price is right rules should be: closest wins, in the case of a tie, that is the absolute values of the differences between the guesses and the target are equal, the one that went over loses.
Jaffe it’s okay
@Gaagaagiins I watched a lot of those vhs tapes I was talking about
@yeso i’m really curious to hear what those pronunciations were - clearly none of them had gall (gall) nor guile (guile) and could not step to me because I’m a rap-o-phile
exodus hard to remember but we did finally agree on “Gully” and I think the fact that we all settled on the wrong answer makes it next a level dumb video game argument
Around here it was “gweel”.

That’s very interesting considering they were most likely to still be Torontonians shooting a production over there in that there Toronto there, but that’s not a linguistic quirk I would associate with Toronto, or at least not the city proper. Perhaps it’s a linguistic time capsule of a City of Toronto from a bygone era…
Punzai You heard it here first: Insert Credit funny enough to wake the dead
this episode was great, a+ ending
Punzai maybe if you ask for a job at Buckingham Palace they’ll ask you if you want to be a Royal Guard or the Queen
It’s worth a shot I think, if you wanna be queen
if this is intro in a game, it’s european (well, really, british):
(also, i think this would kill the queen if she wasn’t already dead)
Price is right rules are only for the opening selection, right? They still kinda suck tho.
Syzygy that’s wild. around here we just knew the word guile. buncha cool kids
@Gaagaagiins also totally possible that I just fell into saying it accidentally!
