Dear Veronica

Hey, Veronica has a new show on Engadget. It's called Dear Veronica and it's like a 21st century advice column. Viewers send in their questions, and she or one of her expert friends will provide answers.

#WPR

Justin has gone through some serious shit. He was only upgraded on HALF of his United flights today. Also, they removed the bagel toasters from the United Club Lounge, but replaced the bagels with bagel sticks. He doesn't know how to feel about this change.

To recover, he went down to the hotel bar for some alcohol-fueled happiness. Turns out they couldn't give him beer, however he utilized out a legal loophole to get them to sell him a full bottle of wine. The bottle normally sells for $13.99, but Justin bought it from the hotel for $40.

This lead to a longer conversation about the times they've bought outrageously overpriced food and drinks.

Brian and Bonnie Are Moving On Up

Listen, Brian and Bonnie just wanna walk around their house in their underwear, but they got all these damn mid-20s skinny boy employees walking around their house all the time! What are Brian and Bonnie to do?! Well, they're thinking about ceding the entire first floor of their house to podcasts and Scam Stuff and move their bedroom up to the second floor where the studio currently resides.

However, there's another plan...

WE'RE NOT BUYING A PUPPY!

Alright, so Brian has been looking at buying a puppy. The puppy only lives about 5 miles from Brushwood Manor and she has 1,600 sq ft of floor space. It's a two-story puppy, so there's plenty of room to run all of the business side of Scam Stuff with all the podcast recording studio space upstairs. Also the puppy used to a fire station. BUT IS THERE A FIREMAN'S POLL?! I dunno man, Brian didn't answer the question, but judging by his reaction to the question I'd assume "no".

There are some downsides however:

  • It'd be more difficult for Bonnie makes appearances
  • The puppy will have to be powered by Time Warner Cable

Again, WE'RE NOT BUYING A PUPPY! This is a good looking puppy that we might buy, if everything works out. The puppy might die of cancer tomorrow.

    • V: The answer got cut off

    • Justin: Walk outside and shout "I am ready to take on the world!". Then yell "I'm mad as hell and I'm not gonna take it anymore!" (He actually did both of these things and it was awesome)

Movie Draft Chat

  • The CRUMDUM on Reddit is really awesome - link
  • Justin: It's almost time to start thinking about the Winter draft. For the 40th time: What should we do about Star Wars? Someone could just insta-bid 100 for Star Wars and win the draft.
    • Cut it out of the draft completely? No
    • Split it into two equal shares? Ehhhhhhh
    • Split it into "opening week" and "rest of run"? That could work
  • Brian: Seriously, Veronica you're in the winter movie draft.
    • LOL this promise is made to like 10 different guests for every draft
    • But now we have Neshcom to book guests, so this might actually happen

Aftershow
