    Space Hulk is warhammer 40k but not big. I think the miniatures for it are the same scale as wh40k as well.

    I definitely disagree with what Karen said about needing more Facebook friends. How can you actually care about 1000 people? When you dilute your friends to include everyone you meet your feed is bound to be diluted by things you don’t care about. (You can block updates from apps you find annoying though.)
    I’ve been using Facebook since 2004 when it was only accessible by people with college email addresses, and Facebook was actually designed to connect people within your networks. As it grew, it changed and became more annoying with people using it for casual games. I still use it to see what is going on in my friends’ lives but people around college age will start to use it less as their mom and grandma get on it.

    Just catching up and listening to this episode. Just passed the part about Venture Bros not being a STONER show. That made me think, what makes someone a stoner? Is it how often or how much they intake. Or is it more of a personality type for a pot smoker? Like the dumbass type of person who might as well be made of stone for their quality conversation.

    Being from Canada I know ALOT of smokers. Tons of people do it and function completely normal. Not everyone of course, but the same can be said for alcohol drinkers. I’m personally of the mind that I don’t care what others do as long as it doesn’t hurt others.

    Anybody of the podcast think this way?? Just to clairfy because anyone reading this will be thinking it, no I don’t smoke that stuff anymore.

    Man I love the Geekbox and find Andrew Fitch interesting. But I thought he was a bit ridiculous with the statement about fetishsizing women being “okay” and then he’s assesment of Asian drivers just asinine.

    Oh gawd – a “couple” podcast. How “awesome”.

    A lot of people are commenting about how much ground got covered in “V”. I think Americans are too used to tv shows having the living shite dragged out of them.
