The only voices I want in my ears during ER are Jeff's & Vinny's.

Oh, so you have not watched the Endurance Run.  I missed that in your first comment.  Well, most of the people in the Giant Bomb community who were interested and wanted to watch it already have and therefore there are not many people left who would be interested in seeing it (again).  And again, what would be the point in communicating with others while watching the Endurance Run?  The only reason I could find is that if it's boring you you're not so bored since you're talking with others.  But if it would be boring you, why would you be watching it in the first place?  So tell me, why would this be necessary?

" @Aeterna: Yeah, but a guild Teamspeak (which would not have more than twenty-five people per room for a raid, and the raid leader may not allow much talking) has something useful to talk about: whatever boss they're killing.  Based on the forum posts, threads, comments, and blog posts I've seen on this site, the "360 kids" experience may not be that far off.  Just replace racism and gay jokes with inside jokes.  Really, what are fifty people talking over each other going to do that's productive or fun? "

Nothing, I never said it would. I'm just saying it can be done. Most people are polite enough to not talk when someone else's talking anyways. "
That's contradicting what I was stating.  So, you've not even posted your opinions on if you would like to participate in this or if you think it would be a bad idea.  Of course it can be done.  Who the hell thought that this could not be done? 

" ...And with Skype!?  Yeah, that would be a terrible, terrible experience.

That's exactly what I meant.  You went on some tangent because you seem to be some Skype fan or something, but I wasn't saying that Skype was terrible in any way.  What I meant was that I can't imagine watching a video (an internet video, nonetheless) with close to 50 strangers who are not in the same room as me just for the goal of talking with them while watching the video.  What would be the point?  Is that not what the video comments are for?  This could also be done in some seperate chat program (MSN or something) while everybody's watching the same video, so that you can actually listen to the video and communicate if you wanted to. "
Yeah msn would be better your right. when I said skype I was thinking maybe 4 or 5 other people would want to do this with 50 people it would suck. If there was 50 people a msn or aim service would be better. btw the argument you guys are having is kinda dumb in my opinion I mean if I was going to do watch a 100 hours of the endurance run I'm going to make sure it is not some racist homophobe you cant be polite.

@Aeterna: So if fifty people not talking over each other (which I still find incredibly unlikely) can't do anything productive or fun, what's the point still?

Why would Skype be a terrible, terrible experience?  Skype's good if you use anything other than a free/1dollar/euro microphone. "
So you think a group of 50 people on Skype, talking to each other while watching an episode of the Endurance Run would be a pleasant experience?  Maybe a room with dudes who are actually together, watching an episode of the Endurance Run would be better, but with Skype would be terrible. "
You've never been with a group of people on any kind of voice communication right? And that makes me think of the stereotypical 360-screaming kids kind of deal. People aren't like that.  And you still attacked Skype for no apparent reason. I'm still waiting for an explanation on what's wrong with skype to be "terrible". "

Way to get butthurt over this, you'd think he'd be talking about your parents or something. 
 
People arent like that? Maybe not as many people as is commonly thought, but that doesnt mean there are a lot of dicks out there.

That's exactly what I meant with stereotypical 360 kids. What I think of with a group of 50people on a voice communication; a guild in a mmorpg. It works perfectly. 
 
Different audience and all. And butthurt? All I'm saying is that he made it sound like it'd be horrible over skype - compared to some other voip application. That's the way I read it.

 Dude, read again.  Did I say that Skype was terrible?  No, I never said that.  I was qualifying the experience that it would entail.  Good for you if you would find enjoyement with watching an internet video, communicating with a whole bunch of other people that are not close to you.  I would not, and from the two other user posts in the thread, they would not either.

Retarded more like? Just accept the fact, IT IS OVER. The endurance run wont be back on monday, you'll have to find something else to with your mornings now.

Ugh, the last thing I'd want to do is watch the Endurance Run with other people talking over it.

 I have a dream, and I need the community's help. Some may say it is insane (and they would be right) but I want to watch all the episodes in sitting with others in the giant bomb community. We can all get on skype together so we can talk and accomplish the impossible. I know it would be the hardest 100 hours in our lives, but I believe if we put our hearts and minds in it. We can enter the meat dimension together!
