During the holidays, I remember there being a certain focus on the non-stop run that the Bombcast (supposedly) has. Well, I did the math. And the results were...
Well, to get down to business. Since the first Giant Bombcast (not Arrow Pointing Down) all the way back on March 11th 2008 there has been:
- 5 years
- 60 months
- 262 weeks
If the Bombcast never missed the mark, there should be 262 shows up. But is that the case?
There are 82 Bombcasts marked as something else than "Giant Bombcast xx-xx-xxxx", in other words, special episodes.
The Bombcast page displays 338 total hits. By taking 338 and substracting 82, we end up the magical number...
This of course means that the Giant Bombcast record run is not accurate. There has been six occurences where the Bombcast has not aired, if my math checks out. Which it does. Feel free to double check.
Consider that myth...
That was a hour well spent.
