    Sick Leave

    I think the culprit could be that barnacle monster that got you a couple FM episodes back causing you to throw up in the Source engine! haha In all seriousness, feel better Ross!

    The unintuitive puzzles where you have to turn switches and connect pipes reminds me of a Half-Life 2 mod that came out a few years ago called "Steam, Tracks, Troubles, and Riddles." This was one of Ross's voice actor roles where he plays a steampunk-esque robot. Here is the steam pipe puzzle. When I played it I couldn't figure out how it worked for the life of me, I had to use the walkthru. Later, there is a part where the robot removes a crowbar from a machine (37.07 in the video). When I played it, I was never able to get that to trigger so I would be stuck in that area. I haven't played it in a couple years but I heard that they fixed a lot of the bugs so I may try it again.

    Talking about rediculous Rube Goldberg contraptions that do all kinds of work to do simple tasks, I saw this today. It is a machine to turn the page on a newspaper. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VtentY8BmsI

    The song playing while demonstrating the takedown moves is the same as the opening intro to the original Quake-based Team Fortress. I don't know if that's what Ross was referencing but it took me back!

    Questions for September videochat

    Ross, when nobody is around, do you ever turn your speakers up really loud and hum weird noises into your microphone like Principal Skeleton from the Grickle videos?

    End of March update

    Ross, silly question, but just curious. Being that you grew up in Virginia, what is your experience with guns? Did you grow up with guns at home or did you go shooting with any of your friends?

    Valve News Network Podcast

    I enjoyed this podcast, good discussions going on, and it's been awhile since I've listened to some classic Offspring so going to go rock out to that! Hopefully we get more Rosscasts in the future!

    Birthday thread: Soundtracks

    I recommend the soundtrack for MotoRacer 2. This was an old 90's motorcycle racing game that came with my video card. The music is kind of like an instrumental ska/punk sound like Sublime/311 http://www.stafaband.co/mp3/download/soundtrack_moto_racer_2.html This is a bit more popular but I also recommend the soundtrack to Interstate '76. Instrumental Funk http://interstate76.wikia.com/wiki/Soundtrack

    I don't know who the killer is, but anybody else see a resemblance to this old sadistic gentleman? Makes you wonder....

    Here is #1 from me, a trip down memory lane... A cop car protecting a donut stand in Interstate '76

    What's your favorite quote/poem/lyric?

    Anybody remember the game Interstate '76? Looking out the window of your room onto a wet rainy day Main street under a slate gray afternoon sky The light on your face is soft and dim under the lace curtain And the streets are empty In the distance, there is a flash and a rumble Clouds sail the sky like giant wooden ships On a blackened evergreen sea Capped with foam

    American living in Poland

    I've always loved hot dogs, but one of my favorite things was Polish gas station hot dogs! Not everytime, but a bunch of times when I would have to fill up my car with gas, I would get a hot dog. They would come in these roles, then put the role in a panini press, then squirt your favorite condiment inside, then insert the dog! I learned how to say "keczup i musztarda", after of course I learned my numbers in order to tell the fuel attendant what pump I filled my car at! There was a small outdoor stage on the cobblestone street I lived near where there were performers rapping in Polish. I later found out it was for a local election and they were handing out these energy drinks with the politician's name on it! This one really cool bar I went to (has since closed down ) called Jazzga painted a giant Mario in their tiles. That day they had a bunch of old computers and game consoles set up as a celebration for retro gaming. Another time they had kind of a sell your own food event where you made food and got to sell it. I wish I knew about it ahead of time because I would have made home made mini corn dogs, which went over rediculously well with my friends over there. I got to see Roger Waters perform The Wall at a smaller than normal venue, meaning I was only about 30 feet away from the stage for not a lot of money! Amazing show! The Polish mountains in the south of the country are one of my favorite places! So beautiful! I took a trip to Morski Oko, near Zakopane. Rented these little scooter things and rode down a hill! Going back to cool innovations, it was the summer time on a ski slope, and they had these big inflatable bags to put around the poles sitting around doing nothing, so someone decided to blow it up and charge people the equivlent of a couple bucks for a few jumps off the chair lift platform about 15-20 feet onto this bag! Because, why not? I held my nose out of instinct even though I knew I wasn't jumping in water!
