I was thinking today…

Not to play into the stereotype fact that Asian people like to gamble, but, when I was young, my favourite zone in Sonic 2 was Casino Night, my favourite character in Ranma ½: Hard Battle was Gambling King, and my favourite X-Man was Gambit.

The best people in life are free

Oh and Backwash is also available in the iTunes store now!


Expanding on an idea I share in the above podcast…

Idea: One day, all of the guns in the world mysteriously vanish. How do gun owners react, particularly when they realize that everyone's guns vanished?

Law enforcement, gangsters, and terrorists can bluff for only so long.

While hunting lions in a remote location, a poacher's guns disappear, and his mobile cannot pick up a signal.

Two high school students plan to shoot up their school and then commit suicide, but on the day of their planned shooting, they cannot find the guns they planned to use.

Murder weapons in active cases go missing.

Crossbow sales skyrocket. Bombings increase.

As soon as a gun maker finishes making a gun, it vanishes. No new guns.


Television Show Idea: The Wirer. Namond Brice is now a Baltimore detective. He joins a detail investigating Michael Lee's drug-dealing organization. Dukie is an informant for Namond's team.
