Mysterious Sounds: Episode 41
Listen to some mysterious sounds with us including the bloop, the hum, and the loneliest whale. We also check out Tibetan throat singers (what else do you sing with?), spectral band replication, and helium - the funniest gas. The military put microphones into the oceans to listen for enemy submarines. Besides submarines they heard sounds that they couldn't explain (like "The Bloop"). Some of the sounds were so loud and carried so far that they must of been made by a massive creature or event. If it was a creature it would be the largest creature... ever. There's also "the Hum" which is a 'hummimg' sound that is heard in different places all over the world. No one knows for sure if it's a real sound (a machine or something) or just imagined. Not everyone can hear the hum. Then the loneliest whale is so lonely because his whale calls are a higher pitch than the others, so high in fact, that the other whales can't hear him. And If you were wondering what spectral band replication is well don't worry because Borg tells all. Oh, and there's a large cat.

Sneakerheads: Episode 40
What is a sneakerhead? It's not a person with a big shoe for a head. I was really excited when that's what I thought it was. It turns out that a sneakerhead is someone who is fanatical about sneakers... for their feet. The hosts of the show - Offroad, Borg and Rygar are not shoe experts. Nonetheless, they have been extensively trained in socks, each own at least one pair of sneakers and are thus qualified to speak on the subject. This episode is meant to introduce the laymen to the wonderful world of sneaker fanaticism.

Rent A Fish: Episode 39
There is a hotel chain that offers fish for rent to its guests. How does that work? Just kidding, I already know. Then there's a story about a tick that was on display during a presentation about the dangers of ticks, but then mysteriously disappeared to everyone's fright. Time to start a new paragraph. Why? It just feels right. The next story we read is about strawberry pizza and the Internet's feeling about it. We always have to think of how the Internet will feel. Like the golden rule says - do unto the Internet as you would have the Internet do unto you. Then it's off to the fashion world as we look at the double jean. It's like wearing one pair of jeans real low on top of another pair of jeans. And, I don't even think that it's two separate pants. I think it's fake like those fake pockets that look like pockets but I try to put my hands in them and it turns out its just a seam in the shape of a pocket opening and my fingers curl up.

High-Tech Forks: Episode 38
A San Francisco man pays to live in a box, and a few different high-tech forks. There are seven million, nine hundred and ninety-eight stories in the naked city, besides these two. The rent in San Francisco is pretty high but how much do you think it would cost to live in a box? Then we look at several different high-tech forks including a noise canceling fork, a salt flavored fork (with no salt) and the fork that buzzes you if you eat too fast.

The Ping Pong Lifestyle: Episode 37
This week a court tells us that Facebook friends are not necessarily our real friends. I was already insecure. Then Prince's sister says that purple wasn't his favorite color. Guess what color it was? No, guess again. Ok... tell you what. Just listen to the show and I'll tell you then. We also chit chat about pool, ping pong and recreational tables in general. Nobody has room for a ping pong table. You make room. It's a lifestyle. The ping pong table makes room for you!

Accidental Tweet: Episode 36
A marathon takes a wrong turn, and a phone accidentally dictates an unusual tweet. Robot Pizza Van is your source for all the news that is funny or weird. During a marathon the runners who were in the lead took a wrong turn. In the meantime some other guy wins the race. Then Rygar tells us about the time he ran in a marathon and was hit in the back of the head with a tortilla. That's why I won't run in any footrace. A woman is dictating a tweet about a news article she had just read. In the middle of the tweet a friend came to her house so she paused the tweet. Little did she know that the twitter machine had not paused but in fact had continued to dictate everything that she said to her friend and broadcast that out. Can you imagine the kind of private things that might have been revealed? Imagine no more. We have the actual tweet and it will be read live, on the air. This is nothing like Al Capone's vault. I am sure that there are words inside this tweet. We look at useless websites and spirulina really is a super food. Super cool!

Love Is Not A Real Ingredient: Episode 35
Love is not a real ingredient in granola, and George Foreman challenges Steven Seagal to a fight. Join Offroad, Rygar and Borg as we consider these stories and more. Can you list "love" as an ingredient on a food products label? A small bakery thinks so but the FDA disagrees. It's all up to you to decide. George Foreman challenges Steven Seagal to a 10 round, no holds barred, fight. Included in this episode is a list of holds that are traditionally barred.

Fishnado: Episode 34
We search high and low to bring you the news stories that won't keep you awake at night. It was hard to find, but these are all of the stories from the entire internet this week, all the stories that don't involve politics, religion or anything else that generally excite people: Man sneaks snakes in his socks, fish are falling from the sky, and a monkey that took a picture of himself. That's all of them A man is caught at the Canadian border smuggling albino Western Hog-nose snakes in his socks. Robot Pizza Van has covered other stories of snake smuggling and assumes the reptile market to be lucrative. In a Mexican town fish have reportedly rained down in the streets during an otherwise normal rainstorm. Scientist say that the cause is a tornado that has sucked up a bunch of fish and rained them down miles away. Finally, a monkey took a selfie and now Peta has sued the human photographer on behalf of the monkey. Can an animal hold a copyright? Don't answer, I can't hear you right now.

Squeaky Boy: Episode 33
Time for weird, unimportant news. You know on the news when they have that one story that's not serious... the 'human interest' story... the fluff piece. Well that's all we do. The stories today are: A bathroom's plumbing is clogged with money, Velcro wants you to stop calling it Velcro, a squeaky boy and more weird eBay items. Several bathrooms' "plumbing" have been found clogged with 500 euro bills that have been cut-up into tiny pieces. Why? I don't know. Then Velcro wants us to stop using the word Velcro as a verb, example: to Velcro something. They're worried about us using the word Velcro this way, like we did with Kleenex and band aide. If we do this too much then they could lose their brand name. They made a goofy music video to promote the idea and we watch it. Very catchy. Finally, we watch the video of a boy who's swallowed the whistle piece from a pet's squeaky toy. Is it funny... or is it sad? The boy end up ok. Does that help? Then we continue a story from a past episode of the Robot Pizza Van: More unusual items being sold on eBay. They're food items that are shaped oddly. For example: a Cheeto that is shaped like a bald eagle. How much would you pay for such an item? I can get you a good deal.

Weird Creatures: Episode 32
Here's the news that doesn't matter. It's not important or relevant. Today a man eats a black widow at the Halloween job fair. Then scientist have made a spider web as strong as steel. Finally, we're seeing more brain-like blobs around. I wonder why. A man attends a job fair at the local Halloween haunt. To impress and maybe land himself a job, he eats the poisonous black widow spider that he has brought along for the job interview. Very professional. Don't worry. He has learned from his mistakes and carries black widow anti-venom in case he gets bitten... again. Scientists have encouraged a spider to spin web that is as strong as steel. Imagine a group of scientists encouraging the cute little spider. "You can do it!" and "We believe in you little spiddey!" Brain-like blobs are generally found in certain areas. We've been finding them lately in unexpected places. I hate to find brain-like blobs when I'm not expecting it. Brain-like? They only look like brains. Each football sized blob is a colony of tiny zoids. What do they want? What does anybody want?

Air Guitar Champion: Episode 31
Listen to us talk as we watch some of the Air Guitar World Championship. We also look at a study that says intelligent people swear. Dang! We watch this year's 22nd Annual Air Guitar World Championship. That means they've done this 21 times already. Find out what it takes to win the title. This year it was held in Finland. Iceland is green and Greenland has ice. Finland has... A study done at the University of Rochester shows that intelligent people swear more. It also shows other habits that seem to correlate.

Steamroller Crushes Unpublished Work: Episode 30
A famous author's unpublished works have been crushed by a steamroller, and the library asks that you stop paying late book fines with Chuck E Cheese tokens. At first these two stories seem unrelated and later they will seem even less related. We start with the news about Chuck E Cheese. We learn not only that a Massachusetts library is requesting that late book fees NOT be paid with Chuck E Cheese tokens, but the Chuck E Cheese Animatronic Band is breaking up! Two devastating blows to Mr. Cheese. Then its off to a friend of the late Terry Pratchett, who is fulfilling the late author's wishes. His wish? To have his hard-drive crushed by a steamroller after his death. This would prevent anyone from publishing any of his unpublished or unfinished work. And the steamroller in this story has a name! Someone named it! Oh, and Google home makes a short cameo appearance as the talking household internet device.

The WhopperCoin: Episode 29
What is a Whoppercoin and how do I get one? Where has Rygar been? Do people really register their hands as lethal weapons? Ok, so you've got a lot of questions. Well, gather around and I'll tell you a tale. A story of the time when Offroad, Borg and Rygar talked into microphones one summer day. To answer those questions - WhopperCoin is a cryptocurrency created by Burger King, Rygar was at the McGregor vs. Mayweather weigh-in, and no... as far as I can tell no one is required or able to register their hands as a lethal weapon. I guess there's no point in listening to this episode now that you know everything. See you next week!

Monkey Waiters: Episode 28
A bar employs monkeys as waiters, and a couple (of people) buy an exclusive street in San Francisco. If you're tired of caring about the news then join the Robot Pizza Van in our battle against important news. There is a bar in Japan that has a couple of macaque monkeys who serve drinks to customers. The monkeys learned it by watching the owner. Now they're teaching it to the next generation of monkey waiters and waitresses. A street in San Francisco forgets to pay their taxes so the city sells the street to a couple. The city kept sending warnings to the wrong address, so you see, it's all just a horrible misunderstanding. What would you do with a street of your own in a major metropolitan area?

Tortoise On The Run: Episode 27
A giant tortoise escaped from a zoo in Japan. There’s a bunch of funny things in this story. First. it’s a giant tortoise so the escape must have taken some time, it was probably not a fast getaway. Second, the turtle doesn’t get very far. Third, how the turtle was found. This third point is not that funny but I was counting my fingers and I still have two more left. Fourth point, the turtle has a cute name. Fifth point of humor is… that … turtles are funny. Ok, the other story is that Pantone, the system for matching colors used in specifying printing inks, not Pantene the hair care product… Pantone has teamed up with the Prince estate to create a custom shade of purple as a tribute to prince. It’s called “Love Symbol #2”. I will not make a joke about the other numbered love symbols. And finally, is a vertebrit an animal distinguished by the possession of a spinal column, or is it something that you might spread your vegemite upon?

King Cobras In A Can: Episode 26
A man is accused of smuggling cobras in potato chip cans, we review a guy on YouTube who reviews shoes, and we check out some food shaped like other things. Offroad, Rygar and Borg talk about funny, weird and/or unusual news articles from the internet. For instance, this week we read about a man who smuggled three live, venomous king cobra snakes, each two feet long, inside of a potato chip can. We watch a YouTube video from Brad Hall who reviews shoes and has been found on top ten most boring video lists. Then we’re on Ebay looking at food items that are shaped like something else. For instance, a Mickey mouse miracle sandwich that has mold shaped vaguely like mickey mouse is for sale on Ebay for $31,000… or best offer. A peanut with brown spots shaped like mickey mouse and a strawberry that doesn’t really look like mickey mouse at all, this and more on the Robot Pizza Van.

AI Creates Its Own Language: Episode 25
Facebook shuts down their AI chatbots after the chatbots invent their own language. Scary and sensational headline but really they shut it down because it’s impractical... so they say! And luxury 'Skinny House' to be built in a three-meter gap in London. And, don't start a sentence with “And”. First, Facebook is experimenting with artificial intelligent (AI) chatbots to explore how people barter and trade. I bet they’re doing it so that chatbots can interact with customers better. Chatbots are less expensive than people for customer service. Anyway, they were messing around and they got two chatbots bartering with each other. Since there were no human involved, the chatbots started to create their own shorthand, or slang to communicate with each other. Some of the internet speculates that Facebook shutdown the project for fear of the chatbots developing their own secret language and taking over the world, or was that something I was afraid of? Then, skinny houses, a health fad in London, where houses eat less calories, get plenty of exercise and fluids… nope, skinny houses are actually houses that are built between two previously placed building that are in very close proximity. Let me try again. They squeeze the skinny house in between two houses that are already there. You’ll just have to listen to this episode to see for yourself. But really, they are houses built into a narrow space.

Silent Song Tops iTunes: Episode 24
A silent 10 minute song is climbing the charts in iTunes and a truck crash covers highway in pizza. This show looks at the funny, unusual, even weird stories from the internet. But first we talk about noise cancellation, from advanced audio technology to the simple ear plug. There’s a song on iTunes by Samir Mezrahi called "A A A A A Very Good Song." The song is ten minutes of silence. If you’re wondering why anyone would make such a song, or why anyone would pay ninety-nine cents to buy such a song… then you’ve come to the right place. Or maybe you’re listening to hear about the highway covered in pizza. We also talk a lot about noise cancellation. Borg mentions that to cancel out a sound - you flip one of the speaker one hundred and eighty degrees out of phase. What does this mean? It’s like if you took the sound wave and flipped it. A sound wave goes up and down, so wherever it was up - it is now down, and vice versa. When you play a sound wave and the flipped sound wave at the same time they cancel each other out.

Rat Cafe: Episode 23
Rygar, Offroad and Borg present another set of unusual stories from the internet. Cat cafes, dog cafes and even a rat cafe. But first we chat about the hard-hitting questions that everyone’s been dying to know: What kind of coffee do you like? What kind of hipster? How tall is America? Why does Charlie Chaplin have the same mustache as Hitler? There exist cat cafes where you can drink coffee while you hang around with free-roaming cats. There are also dog cafes which are very similar to the cat cafés except the cats are instead dogs. Finally, there is a rat café and guess what the cats there are? Yep, the cats are rats!

Alarm Clock Stuck In A Wall: Episode 22
It’s time for a new episode. I can tell because of the alarm clock stuck in the wall for the past 13 years. I’m not sure what time it actually is because it’s inside the wall. Coincidentally this happened to someone else. How? Why? Where? All those newspaper type questions will be answered. TV networks misspell their show’s names on purpose. Why would they do such a thing? A marriage ends a winning streak. How could that happen? Boy, I ask a lot of questions for a guy who already read these stories. It’s almost like I’m trying to get you to ask these questions, to peak your interest, to elicit a response,… from you. Yes, I’m talking directly to you. Just like in the Neverending Story.

Goldfish On Wheels: Episode 21
Offroad has some news stories, Rygar’s talking some heavy philosophy and Borg remembers computer specs from yesteryear. Aaaaah... but now the news: Students at Carnegie Mellon University have built a goldfish tank on wheels that is driven by the position of the goldfish. This is the first step towards goldfish robots. In other news, artist Neil Mendoza has created a robotic system, controlled by a goldfish that smashes tiny people furniture. Goldfish again. Coincidence or is this the second step towards robotic goldfish and their eventual quest for global domination? The Pacific trash gyre/vortex is big. How big? Oh, don’t make us do math. No, really… Ok, you asked for it. Math! Then, the third thumb is a wearable, prosthetic, thirds thumb. How would that work? How do you control it? What does it look like?

P-Touch And The Real Lord Buckethead: Episode 20
You know last week the episode had Lord Buckethead in the title, but we didn't actually talk about him very much. This week we talk about him a lot, but I already named last week’s show. Today we learn a little bit about everyone: Rygar is so organized that he owns the deluxe version of the P-touch label maker, Borg breaks Youtube, EZ teaches us what dabbing is and it’s cultural significance, and Offroad quietly watches it all. Before we break YouTube we are able to watch Cory Burns record a weird strike out, the Bee gees cover the Beatles, and Adele cover herself. We also learn that in England fish sticks are called fish rods and that quantum computers will render computer encryption obsolete (we really shouldn’t do math on the air).

Peters Map And Lord Buckethead: Episode 19
Offroad, Borg, Rygar and special guest EZ talk about the most retweeted tweet, a clown who wants to juggle in court in his own defense, and Lord Buckethead who ran for run for Prime minister (The Tippy Top person in England). First, a train of thought through a landscape of movies and actors. Whats the difference between Willem Defoa and Christopher Walken? What is Peters Map? I found out that people who use Twitter are called Tweople. This doesn't have anything to do with what we talk about. We talk about this guy who is challenged by Wendy's to get 1 million retweets. Game on! Aaaaaaand a clown is trying to prove that he was just kidding, he wasn't really robbing a convenience store. Finally, Lord Buckethead is among many of the goofy candidates for Prime Minister, you can tell them apart from the serious candidates who aren't wearing costumes or buckets.

I Married a Train Station, and Apple's Pizza Box Patent: Episode 18
Offroad and Borg are here, and today’s episode is in 3D sound! It feels just like the sound is really there… in your ears. First we read about a new pizza box design by Apple, and then we talk about a woman who married a train station. We also listen to a phone call from our email. Next time we’ll probably call up an email on the phone. Apple has designed a pizza box for their office’s cafeteria. And like everything made by Apple it is “fill in the blank with insult or praise depending on whether you like Apple or not”. In other news, a woman really likes a particular train station, a lot. We also revisit the YouTube page from our Spin Cycle episode 13 to look at the video’s comments.

Audio Tattoos And Crumbless Bread: Episode 17
Offroad, Borg, Rygar, and special guest (second week in a row) EZ meet to discuss some topics from the internets: soundwave tattoos, crumbless bread and a clown that mustn’t juggle in his own defense. This episode is formatted in 3D audio, which sounds best on normal headphones(especially) or normal speakers. If you got a tattoo that played a sound, what would yours be? A bee? You’re just saying that because I just said that. Hey, if a tree falls in the woods and there’s no one there to use an app to play back the sound of the tree falling,… ok, wait there’s a simpler way to explain. There are soundwave-shaped tattoos that can use an app to play the sound back. Crumbless bred and the dangers of space food. It's like if you open up a bag of cheetos the wrong way and it bursts open and all the cheetos fly around the space cabin getting orange cheese powder on the instruments. Finally the clown story. Very curios title but we don’t get to it this week, so it shall remain a mystery... forever!

Giant Rubber Ducky: Episode 16
Sick of politics in your news? A giant rubber ducky is accused of being a counterfeit, and the manliest man mows his lawn in a tornado. This week Rygar is back and he’s brought a special guest: funny-man EZ. Offroad and Borg are also here as usual, as we reminisce of a simpler time, a time before irony, when sincerity still existed: the 1960s batman television show. Remember Bugles: snack or cereal? Is this another one of those Mandela effects? We geek out a little on fonts, Run-DMC track suits, and we speculate about the common law of “First-ies”. This episode is in 3D sound (ambisonics and binaural audio). Listen as you normally would with normal speakers or headphones.

Fake Artificial Intelligence: Episode 15
Robot Pizza Van - Now in 3D Audio! Just listen like you normally do on regular speakers or headphones. We're using ambisonics (stereo is left-and-right, surround sound adds forward-and-back, ambisonics adds up-and-down) and binaural audio (takes the shape of your head into account?? Binaural audio is best experienced with headphones but still great on speakers). Now you can pay a robot to callback the robots that call you. An AI called me on the phone to sell me something. It was a real life Turing test. Janelle Shane, used a neural network to come up with goofy names for paint colors based on input from Sherwin-Williams paint chips. The same neural network went on to create new names for 1980s action figures. We enumerate examples of real action figures including He Man, GI Joe, Evel Knievil, Charles Mingus? Emotional singers don’t really want to sing but they can’t help it, that’s why the pained expression. A little slam poetry, and then an update on that speech synthesis engine. And finally, we close on the slow-motion scene of clowns, exiting a tiny car, followed by sheep (because they smell cotton candy).

Ninjas and Clowns: Episode 14
Borg and Offroad discover a ninja shortage in Japan. There’s a huge tourist demand but there aren’t enough Ninjas in supply. Maybe it’s not a shortage, maybe they’re really good at Ninja-ing and no one can find them. We also learn about the dangers of clowning, mimes, robot dancers, Bozo of the clowns and SantaCon- where thousands of drunk guys do a Santa-clad pub-crawl. The remake of Stephen King’s “It” is scheduled for September 8th, 2017 which may explain some of the uptake in creepy clown sightings. Then, 3d printed buildings. A big 3D printer drives around and can print a 50 foot dome building in 14 hours. Separately, a solar powered 3D printer that melts sand into glass sculpture. The solar printer is in the desert using the sun and the sand. Hey we should send some of these things to mars to build houses. And finally, police question a ventriloquist about what his dummy allegedly said. iTunes- https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/robot-pizza-van-funny-news/id1212719431?mt=2 Leave a voicemail at 510-629-1233 or email us at robotpizzavan@gmail.com Theme song by Uncle Milk<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/robotpizzavan/~4/cvAumScur8Y" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Spin Cycle: Episode 13
We spend a bit of time watching a wash machine cycle (we review someone else’s review) and it’s actually one of the most fun I’ve had in a while. There’s suspense, heartache, thrills, and... cats! Here’s a little spoiler: 1600 RPMs! Lyrebird is a startup with new speech synthesis technology. They can take a one minute recording of someone’s voice and use it to generate a key which can then be used to generate speech of that person saying anything you want. The company is giving it away for free? Offroad mentions a theory that looting of stereo equipment during an LA riot helped rap/hip hop to grow. Actually, the theory is that this looting happened during a blackout in New York city in 1977. There is a caterpillar that eats plastic, on purpose. I think he likes it. There is also a quick (ha ha) story about particle accelerators. Look out for Future Shock - the idea and the Herbie Hancock song. Borg shows off his audio fading techniques (the fastest fade in the west).

Translating Dolphin: Episode 12
Help us get seen, WRITE A REVIEW! https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/robot-pizza-van-funny-news/id1212719431?mt=2 Picture the scene, a small goat climbs on your back while you do yoga. It’s real. It has been verified in the field. Rygar is not here today. Maybe next week (no probably not, but definitely soon). Donovan leitch, what’s up with Donovan (musician from the sixties, not the lawyer). He’s alive and he’s on tour. We talk about him with no actual research and much speculation. Soon (2021) artificial intelligence will be able to translate dolphin language. They already use it to translate dozens of human languages and just need to gather more dolphin data. A rage room is a furnished room that you can smash. Use a baseball bat or get creative - smash one thing with another thing. Juicero is a juicer. Its getting a reputation as an expensive ($120 million), ridiculous startup investment. The kicker is that you can save the $400 cost of the machine and squeeze the packets with your bare hands. And really most important of all (to me) is that you write a review for the Robot Pizza Van on iTunes. Here’s a link to the show in the iTunes store were you can WRITE A REVIEW! https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/robot-pizza-van-funny-news/id1212719431?mt=2 If you already use iTunes then you probably know how to do this already, but if you don’t use iTunes, then I’ll understand if you don’t want to go through the whole process of getting an Apple ID and then writing a review.

Cheese Sculpture And Other Food Oddities: Episode 11

Asteroid Skyscrapers: Episode 10
Aaaaaah… the self-deprecating nineties. Well even if you weren’t alive yet you can still remember them, indirectly through sales-based nostalgia. We remember some of the things from the nineties like that song by Enigma that was in Tropic Thunder, and we couldn’t remember at the time but it was Suzanne Vega and her song 99.9F°. Elbows or knees? The truth or lies? We make some tough choices and we learn a little about ourselves along the way. The first news story; Prosecco nail polish, the first edible nail polish… lick-able nail polish, it’s not edible, I learned the hard way. This product is somehow associated by Groupon and so there is the associated prestige and sophistication. The second story is a Skyscraper that hangs from an earth-orbiting asteroid. Look out to the horizon and see the skyscraper hanging down from above… as it slowly drifts by. It would be like an upside-down city skyline. What if you had both the regular skyline and this upside-down skyline? The third news story is about a $25,000 prize for the smelliest sneaker. There are different factors that are used to judge this contest. I don’t think they used any scientific instruments but instead rely on a judge’s subjective ‘judgment’. I could criticize the judge but I think he’s been through enough. We also learn some of the techniques that the contestants used to develop the shoe’s smell.

Self Driving Cars and Sinister Smart Devices: Episode 9
Rygar and Borg take a turn reading the news stories, we’ll see how they like the pressure! The first story is about a 'smart garage' owner who complained about his “garadget” smart device, so the company had it disabled. The second story is about an invention for self-driving cars: 'human flypaper' mounted on the hood of the car. This way if the car hits someone, they’ll stick! Besides this we touch upon yoga, deserted boats in the bay, Uber and someone touches upon something hot and burns their finger.

Edible Water And Sneaker Laces: Episode 8
This week we examine edible water bubbles. We don’t eat or drink any, we just examine… the idea. We’re also talking about a Harvard study on the physics behind why shoelaces come untied… and the shoes that love them. Along the way, tales are told of Fruitarians, Breatharians, plant EKGs, Ents and Entwives, the British version of Kickstarter, Boba tea, kale(again), and we watch an advertisement(?) for Joan’s barbecue and foot massage.

Then Rygar, Borg, and Offroad talk about the most expensive potato chips, a so-called ‘thief’ who accidentally warns his victim, UPS truck habits, and listen as we watch Colbert watch 'Hi Stranger’…… and while you’re at it listen to us watching a video of two cats that ring bells with their cute little paws for treats.

Doggy Drones and Solar Sails: Episode 6
Clouds that rain tequila, cheating in school, dog drones, and mysterious lights in the sky. These are the days of our lives, … these are the days of someone’s life. But for us, these are the topics of discussions. Rygar, Borg and Offroad talk about an art-installation cloud that ‘rains’ tequila, a complicated 2-drone solution to the dog poop crisis, and a Harvard study suggesting aliens may be hard at work in another galaxy. But before that, they answer a few computer-generated questions which lead to some inadvertent tips on cheating in school, and a few conversational tangents, which themselves lead to more tangents. It’s like holding a mirror up to another mirror, and gazing into the infinite reflections of the internet.

Then some ASMR treats(not really), StockX - the stock market for sneakers, Back to the Future shoes, and the dangers of Velcro. The final article is about Pizza Hut's limited edition, IOT shoes that can order a pizza while you tap your toes.
