Arcade stick is the only way I play Windjammers and the only way I could imagine ever playing it.

I have a Free Company! We have three members! I'm good with that, I guess! Look for Heidi's Harim if you wanna apply. We are low rent and chill. I am not at all new to the game just lazy with my company!

Dude what are you doing, Jan. Those prize arcade games are rigged! They are programmed to payout only so often so even if you are hitting the button at the right time, it makes it slightly so you lose!

1. Let Jan host everything.

2. Michael H. said he's leaving. Fuck that give him a show.

3. Make GS after dark a video podcast.

4. Make Bakalar print the ideal Switch stand.

Thanks to Jeff for putting himself in these interesting situations for our entertainment.

Also i might've been zoning out, but i swear Rorie said the same sentence twice in a row about the litter wheat. How it's biodegradable and doesn't leave tracks :)

Thanks to Jan for the hosting and the Linkin Park.

That dodgeball rule where you go behind the other team is totally a thing here. It would even include an element of being able to 'respawn' back to the field if you managed to strike someone out from that position. And it added to the chaos because now your teammates can attempt passes beyond the opponents field. If you don't pass it well, the other team might jump and catch the ball, which means that you're eliminated as well. It gets exceptionally bonkers when an extra ball is added in the lategame, and you now suddenly have to dodge balls from multiple angles.

In Scandinavia we do the dodge ball thing where any players that get hit will move behind the opposing team. It makes sure everyone is active and the matches short.

Also, that sounds like the Dutch version of Dutchball. I always noticed that the US TV version has different rules.

I checked the devs, they are Brazilian. We need some worldwide Dodgeball rules trivia...

I listened to that Fire Escape cast trailer where people started to give Mahardy shit about saying "traller," and have also heard him on the podcast itself where they give him shit every time he says it. I don't hear traller, though. It just sounds like he's saying trailer to me. And I don't say traller myself, so I don't get it. *shrug*

I don't know the context of the discussion from the online show because there's no way in hell I'm going to watch that stupid show, but pronouncing consortium "consorshum" is not incorrect. Merriam-Webster lists both consorshum and consorteeum, and when you click the play button to hear it, it actually does the shum one.

Dropping in to confirm for @janman that Windjammers feels better to play with an arcade stick!
