Episode 232: Dumb and Dumber

Well, this episode did not go the way I expected it to!  Yes, we talked about some brain-melting levels of dumb answers but the conversation and my concepts at the end of the call didn't really line up with where I thought they were going to.

Episode 231: Conjuring Perceptions

Another late post, the joys of spring, right?

The episode was a lot of fun to record.  Shorahmin and Joesf from SecondLife joined in and we had ourselves a "grand old time" talking about the concepts of family security, the perceptions that are made based on actions and words as well as a few other fun things.

Articles for Episode 231: Conjuring Perceptions

Words have a habit of conjuring mental images when spoken. In the articles for this episode, we're looking at news articles that conjure different images and perceptions for their readers, or they report on things that conjure up other concepts. Here are the articles:
There were a lot of articles this week. Here are others, and yes they also conjure mental images.:

Episode 230: So Much For...

Wow, "Sprummer" (spring/summer) is here and life has gotten a lot busier around here.  My sincere apologies for those that use the website to track the podcast, here is last week's episode!

There was a lot of fun to be had with the concept of applying the phrase, "so much for..." to each of the articles discussed in this episode.

Articles for Episode 230: So Much For...

When the show notes get put together for an episode, normally there is a common theme. This time it's more of a common phrase applied. Tonight we've got a number of items to discuss that cover a wide range of topics.

 Here are the articles, like I said, the subject range is pretty broad tonight!
More interesting reads, just not enough time to cover them all!

At Least One Hundred Percent

One of the running jokes I've been using during the primary season is the fact that, "Obama must be upset that is isn't winning at least 100% of the primaries this time around." It turns out that the numbers are very telling, not just with the recent results of the West Virginia primary where Obama won 59/41 against a Texas inmate. Understand, we know that Obama is going to win the nomination… I still find it funny that some sites list him as the "presumptive nominee."

Here are the votes or delegate percentages for the 2012 Democrat primary season. Overall, Obama has been running an average of 87% of the primary vote. Some states are much lower, though there are many that did not even have a primary and are not counting or do not allow "uncommitted" delegate counts.

Since news of the Democrat primary season seems to be extremely rare, I thought it would be worth-while to compile a list of the states that have already had some kind of delegate-placing action and include them here. I’ve got a whole Excel spreadsheet with the full breakdowns, but for this chart, all of the "non-Obama" names I've put them in the "Others" column. Some states allow for "No Preference," and those are in the Uncommitted column.

Episode 229: Facts and Allegations

Ken's back this week and as usual we didn't make it through all of the articles but we had a lot of good conversation about the concepts of the "seriousness of the charge" as well as the cop-outs provided by "zero tolerance policies."

Episode 228: Lies and Mythdemeanors

Well, we got through some of what we planned on... though the myths part never made it to the conversation.  With Ken out this week we had Shorahmin as our guest co-host.  Toawa and Joesf also joined in on the call.  Lots of talk about the health care bill and what's ailing the educational and medical systems.  We did stick to our promise from last week to talk about the new proposals of the Health Care overhaul from the GOP, and it turns out that by some estimations it's not all honey and roses!
