I am Canadian, from Northern Ontario. I really have to ask Americans about the weed thing, Do you really think all we do here is smoke?????
I used to work as a call center employee for Time Warner Cable in LA. I got a gentleman on the phone who was STONED as hell. So we are talking as i fix his cable issues and we trade things like are favourite music etc. Eventually I say the ABOOT thing and he gets all excited saying how he loves us up here and the people. Then he asks " Hey man, your from Canada right???? Is the BC Bud really as mind blowing as people." I deadpan that I don't know as I have clearly never tried. This call made my day and I still laugh about it.
Yes, I saw some of Smash Lab, but I don't think it was 'the show about explosions'. Their thing seemed to be 'we've got this thing, how about we apply it over here'...
I watched the first four, but in the fourth, which involved sticking rockets on a Winnebago trailer, had a big disaster that the guy barely survived, so... yeah... they're done.
Awesome and/or redundant: the only two podcasts I ever listen to with any regularity (I'll add HAWP to that list soon, especially if/when they get their archives together) joined forces for this episode! Good times, glad to hear the LRR crew in a different context. Sometimes it's good if they're not running the show.
Good luck on the Nin10d0h! job front, man. Got to admit that I'm less than fully convinced that 6 months down the road a 4 hour trip (up and back?) every week to film NRA is going to pan out, but if you have the chance to live your dreams I recommend you take it.
