Mysterious Sounds: Episode 41

Listen to some mysterious sounds with us including the bloop, the hum, and the loneliest whale. We also check out Tibetan throat singers (what else do you sing with?), spectral band replication, and helium – the funniest gas.

The military put microphones into the oceans to listen for enemy submarines. Besides submarines they heard sounds that they couldn’t explain (like “The Bloop”). Some of the sounds were so loud and carried so far that they must of been made by a massive creature or event. If it was a creature it would be the largest creature… ever.

There’s also “the Hum” which is a ‘hummimg’ sound that is heard in different places all over the world. No one knows for sure if it’s a real sound (a machine or something) or just imagined. Not everyone can hear the hum.

Then the loneliest whale is so lonely because his whale calls are a higher pitch than the others, so high in fact, that the other whales can’t hear him. And If you were wondering what spectral band replication is well don’t worry because Borg tells all. Oh, and there’s a large cat.

Sneakerheads: Episode 40

8-thumbWhat is a sneakerhead? It’s not a person with a big shoe for a head. I was really excited when that’s what I thought it was. It turns out that a sneakerhead is someone who is fanatical about sneakers… for their feet.

The hosts of the show – Offroad, Borg and Rygar are not shoe experts. Nonetheless, they have been extensively trained in socks, each own at least one pair of sneakers and are thus qualified to speak on the subject. This episode is meant to introduce the laymen to the wonderful world of sneaker fanaticism.

Rent A Fish: Episode 39

 

There is a hotel chain that offers fish for rent to its guests. How does that work? Just kidding, I already know.

The next story we read is about strawberry pizza and the Internet’s feeling about it. We always have to think of how the Internet will feel. Like the golden rule says – do unto the Internet as you would have the Internet do unto you. Next there’s a story about a tick that was on display during a presentation about the dangers of ticks, but then mysteriously disappeared to everyone’s fright.

Time to start a new paragraph. Why? It just feels right. Then it’s off to the fashion world as we look at the double jean. It’s like wearing one pair of jeans real low on top of another pair of jeans. And, I don’t even think that it’s two separate pants. I think it’s fake like those fake pockets that look like pockets but I try to put my hands in them and it turns out its just a seam in the shape of a pocket opening and my fingers curl up.

High-tech forks, and some guy payed to live in a box.

High-Tech Forks: Episode 38

A San Francisco man pays to live in a box, and a few different high-tech forks. There are seven million, nine hundred and ninety-eight stories in the naked city, besides these two.

The rent in San Francisco is pretty high but how much do you think it would cost to live in a box? Then we look at several different high-tech forks including a noise canceling fork, a salt flavored fork (with no salt) and the fork that buzzes you if you eat too fast.

This week a court tells us that Facebook friends are not necessarily our real friends. I was already insecure. Then Prince’s sister says that purple wasn’t his favorite color. Guess what color it was? No, guess again. Ok… tell you what. Just listen to the show and I’ll tell you then.

We also chit chat about pool, ping pong and recreational tables in general. Nobody has room for a ping pong table. You make room. It’s a lifestyle. The ping pong table makes room for you!

New, Episode 36: Accidental Tweet

A marathon takes a wrong turn, and a phone accidentally dictates an unusual tweet. Robot Pizza Van is your source for all the news that is funny or weird.

During a marathon the runners who were in the lead took a wrong turn. In the meantime some other guy wins the race. Then Rygar tells us about the time he ran in a marathon and was hit in the back of the head with a tortilla. That’s why I won’t run in any footrace.

A woman is dictating a tweet about a news article she had just read. In the middle of the tweet a friend came to her house so she paused the tweet. Little did she know that the twitter machine had not paused but in fact had continued to dictate everything that she said to her friend and broadcast that out. Can you imagine the kind of private things that might have been revealed? Imagine no more. We have the actual tweet and it will be read live, on the air. This is nothing like Al Capone’s vault. I am sure that there are words inside this tweet.

We look at useless websites and spirulina really is a super food. Super cool!
