  1. Addfwyn just commented on your Blog: “The iPad… It’s been jailbroken”.

    “Honestly, I can’t think of anything worth jailbreaking the iPad over that you can’t do via legit avenues.  Seriously, pulling a total blank here.”

  2. 3 dollars an hour for parking?? Fuck that’s cheap.

    Just today I payed 25 Euro for 5 hours of parking. That’s something like 33 Americabucks.

  3. I hate being in work on a Thursday. I keep missing the live stream.

    It would be really NICE if there were a video archive, ya know?

    I understand why theres no video archive. Subscriber benifits and all that. I just hate missing the live video.

  4. “I don’t want to talk to the phone.”

    “What about the hand?”

    That was goddamn brilliant Will, fuck the haters.

  5. Fantastic quote from Will,

    “by the time you buy a van, you pretty much don’t care about how you drive”

    Beautifully said.

    When people buy a van from a dealership, immediately after, their license should be taken away, on the spot. To reference Seinfeld, Driving a van is like wearing sweatpants in public, you’ve pretty given up on life.

  6. “I don’t want to talk to the phone.”

    “What about the hand?”

    That was goddamn brilliant Will, fuck the haters.

    Yes that made me laugh.

  7. “I would retire from Stargate too, because that show sucks ass.” – Will

    The list of reasons I dislike your opinion on anything lengthens. But you don’t give a shit, so that’s why I like you.

  8. In continuation of my previous comment, if only we could get Will/Norm to eat an egg on something they say that is already wrong, rather than only potentially wrong in the future.

  9. I would like the new site background as a wallpaper as well.

    Me too.

    +1!

    Would be very cool if you guys could upload that somewhere 🙂

  10. Hey Will, I agree with EVERYTHING you said about Terra Nova. Especially the family drama. It was just super awkward. Didn’t they figure out that awkward drama was an instant fail with Stargate Universe? Also.. Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis.. Not crappy shows.. You should definitely give them more of a chance. Once you get to know the cast you get sucked right in.

  11. I would like the new site background as a wallpaper as well.

    Here you go!

  12. JESUS FUCK, nearly every word out of Will’s mouth makes me want to beat him with a 2×4. Hey Will, name a show you like so I can say it sucks without ever having watched it. God your a piece of shit (not because of this specifically, just in general).

  13. Unless Will meant something very specific by saying the iPod Touch has a lesser display, I think he’s wrong.  According to Apple, the resolution and size are the same as an iPhone.  And as somebody who plays games on an iTouch, a lot of games just don’t work on it.  Or stop working when you update them.  Currently, Monster’s Ate my Condo, Jetpack Joyride, and Shibuya don’t work.  You never know.  But if you don’t already own a smartphone, it’s still way cheaper, which is why I put up with it. 

  14. It’s a shittier display. The specs are the same, but when you look at it side-by-side, it’s noticeably inferior. Pretty sure we talked about that in the review.

    Well, shut my mouth. I had no idea. Since I don’t own an iPhone, I’d never done a side-by-side. Also, while Apple lists the pixels and size as the same as an iPhone, they don’t call it a Retina display on the store’s tech specs page.
