  • [...] Here and then way over Here are the links to Gary Gulman’s episodes of The Todd Glass Show, and the second Here also has Steve Lemme and Kevin Heffernan from Broken Lizard, the group behind the movie Super Troopers and Beerfest. And for those who don’t know, The Todd Glass Show is a comedy podcast with lots of silliness and occasionally some serious talkie talk. [...]

  • Completely unsolicited factoid: Todd’s joke about the first person to say “Hello” actually isn’t that far off the mark. When telephones were first invented, no one knew what to say when they started talking. Alexander Graham Bell suggested “Ahoy”, or “Ahoy-hoy” (you may recognize from Mr. Burns on The Simpsons), but that didn’t take. There were even newspaper contests for people to suggest what to say, but it was Thomas Edison who wrote to Bell and suggested “Hello” which up to that point was usually spelled “hallo” or “hollo” and was used in English as a indicator of surprise or shock, As in “Hello! What is this tuba doing in my glovebox.” It took off, and “hello” became the greeting we use today.

    As long as I am posting boring facts (which will probably never be read) on the internet…

    Bonus unsolicited factoid: Todd’s minor altercation over speaking loudly on the phone reminded me of something. When a person gets angry, their body produces and distributes chemicals like adrenaline which is why we actually “feel” angry. However, once we have intellectually resolved what has made us angry (such as being apologized to) those chemicals are still present until our bodies can break them down again. This means that you will still feel angry even after you have no reason to be angry. This is why when you are in an argument and things seem to be getting resolved, you or the other person may start bringing up older or unrelated issues; The person’s body is still signaling to the brain that you are angry but the reason is gone so you confabulate (meaning: make up but not on purpose) a reason. Long story short: The lady may have been perfectly cool with an apology, but it is possible she just needed a couple minutes to cool down (and break down those hormones).

    Anyways, I’d be shocked if anyone reads this, but at least I can stop thinking about it.

  • My phone rang with the Requiem For A Dream ringtone during the Fun Mom bit. Made my day. Also…I’m listening to this on the 9th, sorry Gary. I’ll record your hour next time it’s on.
