How DO you submit a lie for future podcasts without the boys seeing it and therefore knowing it’s the lie? Is there a direct line to Nikki?
So as a swede when Barry said And the Swedes do some crazy stuff I am just nodding along thinking lickable wallpaper does sound like something we would do.
Jaime reminds me of a terrible joke my grandfather played on my parents. He was a policeman and thought it would be HILARIOUS to teach me that that the pig says “stick em up”. My teacher the first day of kindergarten was VERY concerned and my grandfather got dragged in to explain himself. He was unrepentant. I’m continuing the tradition and trying to teach my nephew fingerguns to go with it.
Oh come on now Jamie. Mike’s delightful chocolate surprises were great! He put a lot of thought and effort into making them
1. Guys, Ben used the word piezoelectric about a million times. This is not a term he would use regularly. How did that not tip you off?
2. Animal testing (humane animal testing) is the reason life expectancy has increased as much as it has. It’s the only reason that drugs for diseases like cancer, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, etc etc exist. For things like beauty products I understand your reservation, but for medications, it’s kind of the only option, at the moment.
3. Jamie and Barry giggling while Ben is just talking out the cornflake masturbation theory is one of the funniest things I have ever watched.
4. MICE EAT THEIR YOUNG ON RANDOM OCCASION! You have not lived until you’ve switched mouse cages and found a fat mother and a couple of random mouse heads.
Seems like you’re a scientist? So am I! Can I ask what do you study?
Scientists unite! I’m a biochemist that sort of drifted into medical research. How about you?
Truth: Blue raspberry flavor is based on a real fruit. https://www.bonappetit.com/entertaining-style/pop-culture/article/what-is-blue-raspberry-flavor
Lie: Hershey is the largest candy distributor in the world. https://www.candyindustry.com/2018-Global-Top-100-candy-companies-Part-4
This format needs to go back to having all 4 of you
I almost submitted the Corn Flakes fact but I assumed it was basic knowledge; clearly not since it’s a bizarre thing to know. Fun fact: Graham crackers were created by minister Sylvester Graham for the very same reason. I believe Dr. Kellogg also had a “hospital” that was more along the line of a wellness retreat that promoted a bland diet and other lifestyles he believed were the healthiest.
Great episode! Gave me a great laugh. Oddly enough, Sylvester Graham invented the graham crackers also as a way of preventing… self love.
Here’s a lie for a future podcast: if kept in a temperature controlled environment, Sour Cream cannot go bad. It is already soured and cannot turn further. If bacteria or other substances are introduced, mold may begin to grow, but it can simply be scooped away from the rest of the cream, which is still good to use.
