TCASP EP: 112 – Secret Santa Arrived and Homelessness is Over

Summary:

Episode 112 is here and all of our NZ Secret Santa gifts have arrived. Find out what we got from all the awesome Santa’s out there. We have a hashtag now to help document Chris’s kidney stone, #dickstone2016 is what you will need to use for all your hashtag needs when talking about it from now on. Thanks to Jeremy for coming up with it.

Sam managed to fix the back catalogue of episodes, you can now go back and listen to the last 300 episodes of the podcast, luckily we are only at 112 right now. But make sure to check out the episode 2 magnets and a piece of tape as it makes Sam angry.

Chris came across a little tool to help with as he puts it, guitar fingering. He also reads out a quote he found that might explain the state of the world, the biggest threat to mankind might be stupidity.

Homelessness in Hamilton has all been solved apart from 2 people that are sleeping rough, we wonder how true these claims really are and friend of the show Allan had experience with these random “homeless” types of people when he was visiting earlier on in the week.

Police overseas rescued an old lady who appeared to be frozen in a car, turns out it wasn’t a live person at all, find out what this super realistic old person is actually used for.

Kickstart or dropkick is in the mix this week, we talk about gear eye, a way of keeping track of all your gear with the use of RFID tags and your smartphone, is this a good idea? Or just something for really dumb people? We discuss it.

We learnt about the experimental skin gun this week, find out what it is and what it can be used for.

Have we heard about the latest thing for the adult industry? VR you can feel. Find out what they achieved and what Chris thinks about it.

India’s built the world’s largest solar power plant, in a pretty short amount of time, which leads us to guess how big the population is in India.

TCASP EP:062 – New Year new resolutions.

Summary:

It’s 2016 people, time to be excited.  We celebrated new years by acting like old people and not do much.

We talk about how our Christmas went, Chris managed to get in at least 10 hours of gaming and Sam ended up with a random sort of Christmas gift which you can alter in all it’s glory, all the details within this podcast.

We’ve got a bit of a revival going on, Chris is getting into Southpark and Sam is checking out some online multiplayer games.

We work out why everyone has been crashing their car or drowning this holiday period as well as talking about the helicopter pilot that got into trouble for rescuing someone.

Rant time involves Hoyts cinemas and their super salty popcorn, and the not full refund where they kept 30 cents due to the little tiny bit of popcorn eaten.  Oh and we talk about the Peanuts movie Sam went to see.

We have been board gaming it up lately with Settlers of Catan and Carcassonne

And find out what our New Year’s resolutions are going to be.

TCASP EP: 061 – Christmas Eve podcast, Tinder problems and a lot of Chris

Summary:
Christmas is almost here and Chris has trouble remembering when it actually is every year.  We have both now seen Star Wars,  Chris was annoyed by someone’s spelling, and the word of the year isn’t actually a word.

Chris has a bit of a rant and defends his buddy John Key, he also rants about something called release 66 and has real problems complaining about it, will he really be heard?  He’s also got no work on at the moment and is trying to figure out how to sell his body.

Was the miss universe stuff up a conspiracy?  Chris thinks so, Sam isn’t so sure.

Chris battles with Tinder and almost meets someone via it, but something happens, find out what exactly.

Chris also has a Christmas tradition that has nothing to really do with Christmas at all.  He is also fighting Reddit because he thinks he might get addicted to it, Sam admits he didn’t know what hashtags were when he first saw them.

I swear Sam is actually on this episode but we also talk about the job Chris has applied for, follow along as we find out what it is, and we will see in the new year if he gets it.

And if you want to learn a language or other skill, then check out the Memrise app.

We also want to know what the weirdest Christmas gift that you got this year?
