Gadgettes 170: The 'enough with the feminism' episode (podcast)

We received a passionate e-mail from one of our listeners about the show's constant feminist slant. Fortunately for Nicholas, we quickly decided to devote an entire episode to the other side (for a change).

EPISODE 170

E-mail that inspired today’s episode:
The “enough with the feminism” episode Enough with the feminist ranting! I want to hear smart woman discuss technology. Not feel uncomfortable as they take every dubious marketing idea personally. Why if I took every male marketing idea personally, I’d feel like I’d have to be a weight lifter or a soldier.

And that issue with the telescope in episode 167. You folks missed the obvious. I’m pretty sure it was nothing to do with girls being unable to handle real science. It was likely simply marketing to stereotyped attitudes, boys to want the big tough weapon like telescope! And girls who want the daintily elegant petite telescope. — Nicholas

Who knew men were so self-conscious about making too much noise while peeing?! I can’t decide if my favorite part is the teapot demonstration cartoon or the Japanese men in slippers cartoon. Links below:D

The Geek Cake Double-take

You can close this theme, as I have, as Charles Nelson Reilly on Match Game used to say, “the definitive answer” for a geek cake.

May I humbly present, “the dead tauntaun wedding cake”.

If there ever was a hall of fame for geekdom, this cake, and the couple who ordered it would be charter members.

Take care and happy potty training.

Paul “alamode” Cyopick
