I listened to the latest one.

I was interested to hear about those mothers who put their children to cook in the microwave while they go out shopping or partying. I've given it careful thought and I think this is probably a bad thing.

The section about deviant sex surprised me. I didn't realize that all that stuff was going on in the USA. :shrug:

I never realized that 'freedom of speech' involved children being forced to pray in schools. Now that I know that, count me against this 'freedom of speech'.

I was looking forward to an interesting section about western lesbians, but they barely got a mention. :sadcheer:

Probably, but for now I'm keeping an open mind and trying to see both sides. :yup:

I listened to the US one, and now I am super-worried about all those major metropolitan areas where it is illegal to say Merry Christmas.

I can only imagine what atrocities are going on right now in the lesser nations! I don't think I'm ready to know.

Oh, I'm sure I'll like the international stuff too. I just need to finish my chuckle over your US talk first.

Check back in a week or so.

Not this American. I'm just as disinterested in your US episode as all the rest. I'll wait for the people with more patience for your drivel to tell me what's in your other podcasts.

:bow4:

I am hugely impressed! The United Kingdom episode is so badly produced I think it should be entered for an award. It's only about 1 minute long, but nearly half of that time is expended on some introductory choral-humming mood music. There follows about 20 seconds of barely intelligible speech in execrable English —"Today I will talk abawit England and its alleys" lol—consisting mostly of questions and next to no exposition. And then in a final insult to the noble art of aural communication, even this obscurity is compounded by digital skipping, so that the last 20 secs is more akin to a minimalist, nay, Dadaist musical composition.

I lost 78 IQ points listening to the musical intro to the Russia episode, which is no small matter for someone who only had 83 such points to start with. The skipping and related incomprehensibility immolated my remaining 5 points, so now I'll never know if Russia will join NATO. :sadcheer:

Your impressions about the musical introduction of the show indicate that it is too bad or very different.

What is the connection between you and that Mark Howard guy?

The production values on the ones that you narrate are so poor that I really can't even tell what you're saying. That said, I much prefer your narration to that other guy's. His voice is incredibly grating, and the things he's saying are crazy and factually wrong.

About the only thing I can find that they have in common is a propensity to make sweeping statements about shit that neither of them have any earthly idea about. Which can be entertaining as hell, but this is really the wrong medium for it.

I listened to "The Future of Greece" and "The Future of the European Union" and I must admit that this is even better then peacegirl's deep messages (it might even rival AML's lectures). :unnod:

Powerful, powerful stuff indeed.

I wasn't going to listen till Cept mentioned deviant sex.
Way to bury the lead Wael!

Yes, this is very informative, I had thought you had to wait an hour after an abortion to continue to party, kinda like swimming, but that you can just continue to party is helpful! I'm confused though, are you saying brown babies aren't terrorists, because I'm sure they will become terrorists, thus aborting them is stopping the next attack before it starts. Do you support terrorism? I hope not! I'm glad to see abortion advocated for a noble cause.

Oow now we get to the good part, indeed those are all awesome things* and it's fascinating how much the author knows about this, I must take notes! He's right, that the Christian community praised the Dugars instead of putting them in their place through stoning was a bit weak of them, they need better follow through!

I know right! My implant preventing me of thinking of a prayer to God while out in public spaces itches sometimes. At least when I get home there's an entire 100 block of Christian programing on the satellite in HD glory! Praise the one and only true messiah, may all others before him be aborted to speed his swift return!

*that occur in the Bible.
