Probing – Nothing Serious Podcast #116

Breatharianism – Can you survive on sunlight and fresh air alone? Why does NASA want to probe Uranus? Do we need a Space Corps? Should you get charged for being rude? Do beards protect men from homosexuality? These questions, and more get debated by Paul and Daniel in this special episode of Nothing Serious,

Stories mentioned in episode 116 of Nothing Serious Podcast include:

Sounds Like A Horse

Just how bad are Courtney Love’s vocals, and if it sounds like a horse and smells like a horse, is really a horse, or a woman who loves to be ridden like a one (and that’s not sexual)? What is it like to have a 17 hour erection? The Guardian knows how to test lab-grown penises, and we try to get to the bottom a study that say coffee drinkers have problems expressing themselves. Daniel challenges Paul to give up caffeine for a week – do you think he can do it? Oh, and now you can have three boobs too – just like the hooker in Total Recall!

Coffee Snobs – I Fear For My Future

I honestly think I have known these people and I fear that one day my coffee addiction will lead me to become one of them (without working at a coffee shop I hope).

Of course, none of this is helped by the fact that my percolator decided that this morning would be a great time to screw up, overflow and try to drown Sara’s phone in hot coffee…

Zombie Laptop Is Back From The Dead

After drowning my laptop if a flood of coffee yesterday, I am happy to report that is alive and kicking again.

A quick bout of surgery, some dry off time, some bed rest and this morning it’s back to it’s old habits and from now on shall be dubbed the Zombie laptop.

Thanks to Sara for not taking the piss out of me (too much) for nearly destroying my laptop 😉

This Is Why You Keep Liquids Away From Your Computer

We’ve experienced the rush of fear when we almost spill a drink on our laptops, well today it was more than just “almost” for me.

Today, I was too busy talking to Frank and not watching what I was doing and sent the entire contents of my coffee cup (a big yellow one that would hold about 2 and a half normal mugs worth) straight onto my main laptop.

I immediately pulled the power, poured the liquid out, stripped it down, cleaned the areas that coffee got to and now it sits, as you can see from the picture below, in many pieces on my dining room table.

I’ll leave it to dry there overnight and hopefully when I reassemble it tomorrow it will come back to life.

There’s a lesson to be learned here folks 😉
