The lads go deep in discussing their inspiration from Kevin Smith, from "Tough Sh*t" to "Clerks" and how much effect Kevin Smith indirectly had on the launching of LSG Media. It goes heavy at times, but most of the time is spent laughing about the hilarious, and often too real, characters that Smith was able to put to paper. The lads consider Smith's perspective (and dare we say, "wisdom") at such a young age and how much more introspective he was as compared to them at the same age. As with mos...more

Also this week, why no-one with a brain should be pleased about ‘talking’ orcas, and how the Babble saved ALL the elephants. Sustainababble is your frie...more

This week on The Best of Car Talk, Rick's diesel Rabbit ran out of fuel and the only liquid Rick had on hand was a bottle of scotch. Could he have poured the scotch into the tank or would Rick have been better off drinking it and waiting for the tow truck? Elsewhere, a tree fell on Murli's Corolla (we think it made a sound), and he doesn't know whether to replace the roof or have it straightened; Sally's steering column is sending smoke signals; and Kerry needs help navigating the "Pit of Despai...more

We can cry out of sadness, fear, frustration, anger, or even joy. But why do streams of liquid leave our eyes? The truth is no one really knows for sure. In a scientific sense, we’re the only organisms who tear up due to our emotions. Other creatures do so merely to remove irritants from their eyes. Another interesting find is that tears formed from different emotions actually contain different chemical makeups. Jeff and Anthony have a candid discussion about this phenomenon they have no first h...more
