King Cobras In A Can: Episode 26

s-1

A man is accused of smuggling cobras in potato chip cans, we review a guy on YouTube who reviews shoes, and we check out some food shaped like other things.

Offroad, Rygar and Borg talk about funny, weird and/or unusual news articles from the internet. For instance, this week we read about a man who smuggled three live, venomous king cobra snakes, each two feet long, inside of a potato chip can. We watch a YouTube video from Brad Hall who reviews shoes and has been found on top ten most boring video lists. Then we’re on Ebay looking at food items that are shaped like something else. For instance, a Mickey mouse miracle sandwich that has mold shaped vaguely like mickey mouse is for sale on Ebay for $31,000… or best offer. A peanut with brown spots shaped like mickey mouse and a strawberry that doesn’t really look like mickey mouse at all, this and more on the Robot Pizza Van.

AI Creates Its Own Language: Episode 25

robot11Itunes https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/robot-pizza-van-funny-news/id1212719431?mt=2#episodeGuid=tag%3Asoundcloud%2C2010%3Atracks%2F338771221

Facebook shuts down their AI chatbots after the chatbots invent their own language. Scary and sensational headline but really they shut it down because it’s impractical… so they say! And luxury ‘Skinny House’ to be built in a three-meter gap in London. And, don’t start a sentence with “And”.

First, Facebook is experimenting with artificial intelligent (AI) chatbots to explore how people barter and trade. I bet they’re doing it so that chatbots can interact with customers better. Chatbots are less expensive than people for customer service. Anyway, they were messing around and they got two chatbots bartering with each other. Since there were no human involved, the chatbots started to create their own shorthand, or slang to communicate with each other. Some of the internet speculates that Facebook shutdown the project for fear of the chatbots developing their own secret language and taking over the world, or was that something I was afraid of?

Then, skinny houses, a health fad in London, where houses eat less calories, get plenty of exercise and fluids… nope, skinny houses are actually houses that are built between two previously placed building that are in very close proximity. Let me try again. They squeeze the skinny house in between two houses that are already there. You’ll just have to listen to this episode to see for yourself. But really, they are houses built into a narrow space.

Silent Song Tops iTunes: Episode 24

Here’s a link to this episode on iTunes – https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/robot-pizza-van-funny-news/id1212719431?mt=2#episodeGuid=tag%3Asoundcloud%2C2010%3Atracks%2F337789342


A silent 10 minute song is climbing the charts in iTunes and a truck crash covers highway in pizza. This show looks at the funny, unusual, even weird stories from the internet. But first we talk about noise cancellation, from advanced audio technology to the simple ear plug.

There’s a song on iTunes by Samir Mezrahi called “A A A A A Very Good Song.” The song is ten minutes of silence. If you’re wondering why anyone would make such a song, or why anyone would pay ninety-nine cents to buy such a song… then you’ve come to the right place. Or maybe you’re listening to hear about the highway covered in pizza. We also talk a lot about noise cancellation.

Borg mentions that to cancel out a sound – you flip one of the speaker one hundred and eighty degrees out of phase. What does this mean? It’s like if you took the sound wave and flipped it. A sound wave goes up and down, so wherever it was up – it is now down, and vice versa. When you play a sound wave and the flipped sound wave at the same time they cancel each other out.

https://i0.wp.com/thehollowearthinsider.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Old-English-Black-Rat-Flickr-Photo-Sharing-Public-Domain.jpg

Rygar, Offroad and Borg present another set of unusual stories from the internet. Cat cafes, dog cafes and even a rat cafe. But first we chat about the hard-hitting questions that everyone’s been dying to know: What kind of coffee do you like? What kind of hipster? How tall is America? Why does Charlie Chaplin have the same mustache as Hitler?

There exist cat cafes where you can drink coffee while you hang around with free-roaming cats. There are also dog cafes which are very similar to the cat cafés except the cats are instead dogs. Finally, there is a rat café and guess what the cats there are? Yep, the cats are rats! Try to drink your coffee while your hanging out with rats.

Alarm Clock Stuck In A Wall: Episode 22

ep 22 clock

It’s time for a new episode. I can tell because of the alarm clock stuck in the wall for the past 13 years. I’m not sure what time it actually is because it’s inside the wall. Coincidentally this happened to someone else. How? Why? Where? All those newspaper type questions will be answered.

TV networks misspell their show’s names on purpose. Why would they do such a thing? A marriage ends a winning streak. How could that happen? Boy, I ask a lot of questions for a guy who already read these stories. It’s almost like I’m trying to get you to ask these questions, to peak your interest, to elicit a response,… from you. Yes, I’m talking directly to you. Just like in the Neverending Story. Now sit back, yell out the new name you’ve chosen for the princess and listen to the Robot Pizza Van.
