Buzz Out Loud 1319: Saucued in Spaaace! (podcast)

With Donald, Darren, and Benito at the helm, there's nothing stopping us from devoting a third of the show to outer space. NASA has 19 billion dollars to burn, humanity gets a new planet to play with, and space flights get their own special beer. It's good thing too, because life on earth is getting creepy. Android apps are watching you, Groupon is launching a human breeding program, and the era of Minority Report pre-crime detection is nearly upon us. -Donald

Plan your space vacation now, because life on earth is getting creepy.

It seems to me that if the UN did not have a position for Mazlan Othman they will have one now for sure. I’m sure this discovery of her home world doesn’t come as surprise Mazlan. If you think about it, one of the goals of the UN is complete nuclear disarmament and with Mazlan and Mazlanians infiltrating the UN they are one step closer to taking over our planet. Of course, what she didn’t count on was our discovery of her home world before her plan had time to work. I would keep a watchful eye for any wormholes or positronic frequencies being sent from her home over the next few weeks as she scrambles her people for an all out attack on Earth.

Or, it could just be an uninhabited rocky planet.

My story is just so much more fantastic it has to be true.

Keep up the hilarious week at BOL,
Sanel

Hey Buzz Crew,

I was listening to episode 1318, and you were talking about texting while driving. I think I have a solution to this problem, but it would require a little bit of legislation that I don’t think anyone would really be opposed to. Mandate bluetooth in cars and phones. My car has bluetooth, and I’ve paired my phone with it. The solution to texting while driving would be to have the car automatically set the phone to driving mode when the connection is established, and the phone goes out of car mode when the connection breaks. What do you guys think?

Love the show,
Kevin
