Feed Dump: Stowaway Pocket Calculator

Stowaway Pocket Calculator

Just because all the other kids are stowing away doesn't mean that you have to.

Watch Video

The names of the two cats reminded me of those football players. First they had William "The Refrigerator" Perry, and then there was a guy bigger that him, so they called him "The Kitchen". :P

*as Cyan from Final Fantasy VI* What a jaunty hat!

Failsworth, though? That must be Andy Capp's hat.

Calculator from the old English for 'Logarithm Bitch' XD

At 3:01 you can hear someone's stomach growl, clearly the camera man wasn't getting in on the lunch dump. Either that or it was a tunnel monster.

Someone found Choo-Choo Bear?

Gah, the episode kept freezing on me. The wi-fi is horrible down here in the wheel compartment of the plane.

Oh, wait, I think the plane's taking off. I think the episode said something about endorsing this kind of travel. See you guys in a few weeks when I get back to America from China!

I always LOVE the hats... but this one?
I'm sure there's at least a few news outlets that sometimes have a regular old thing like that on!
The name is funny, but. They DO have that hat, and that made me sad. Which rhymes. Now I feel a little better.

And the captacha is bacon & eggs.
Yay!

I'm in Moncton and haven't heard of that cat before... I guess I might be taking the "There might be better sources for news, but they don't have THIS hat" a little too seriously. But I can't follow hatless news now that I've been served by hatted ones, it would go against all TF2 might have taught me!

Bonus points for using the word 'epistemological'. Even Chrome doesn't know how it's spelled. And this is why Cam is my favourite Feed Dumpster.

Oh man. That bit about the cats had me rolling. Too funny LRR guys, too funny. Thanks for another really funny FEED DUMP. :)

"It gets six more frames per second than the Antikythera mechanism."

That Cam has that word at his command (mispronounced though it was) is just amazingly wonderful.

Forwarding bomb threats sounds like a great idea.

*quick google search*

Dear god, that cat is fat.

Another week goes by and still Kathleen refers to herself as "Kathleen De Vere" and not as "Princess of Romania-to-be, her Highness, Princess Kathleen De Vere".
Disappointed.

At least the episode was as awesome as usual. I guess that'll just HAVE to do.

xD

Just a note: Cam mentioned that glass was a very slow flowing liquid. This is a very common misconception. This is a good link explaining that, though the arguments are kind of dense.

If you want to ignore a lecture on thermo, you can just trust me. I'm a chemical / materials engineer. (B.S. from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Chemical and Biological Engineering, M.S. from Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Materials and Process Engineering.)

Also, the reason for very old glass being thicker on the bottom (which is explained in the link provided) is that they used to use techniques that didn't give very uniform thickness. So, they installed the thicker (heavier) end down because it just kind of makes sense to put the thick bit at the bottom. Gravity and all. This is highly fragile glass we're talking about.....

And if you don't want to trust me, google it a bunch. Many sci/tech websites out there for you to find with explanations on the issue.

Sorry to call you out Cam! Hope it didn't come off dickish!

Yeah bitches! You better believe we have the fattest cats around! No one out girths our felines! WHOO!

...

We truly are the most petty city in Canada...

Cam nailed it again, but the best part was far and away the last pun "...non-mewtonian fluid".

I think my unborn grandchildren started groaning in response.

Captcha: WINNING

Yes they were captcha, yes they were.

Uh-OH!!!

Graham, I hope that the "Failsworth" company doesn't see this episode or you may never get another hat from them.

Claim innocence!!!

Wow. That's a fat cat.

:) Fun show today.

It's been a while since Paul was here. Nice to have him back.

"Meow-tonian physics" Oh you guys crack me up

-M

That had me laughing the whole way through. The viscosity of a fat cat... So true. We had a huge maine coon that weighed almost 30 pounds, he did ooze everywhere. And still somehow managed to fit under things I could barely get my normal sized female hand under.

I love that the TARDIS is becoming as ubiquitous as the USS Enterprise or the Millennium Falcon.

I took it as him saying 'glace', as in the culinary term for a very thick reduction.

Pity that hat never made it into the Phailhaus, it would have been right at home.

Also, good lord, that cat is fat.

another great episode, props to cam for working in the antikythera machine

Any opportunity for education! Not sure if I misheard, apologies if i did!

Cam has ALL the words. Seriously, that man has one amazing vocabulary. Oh and science!

This is also a solid that behaves like a liquid, the scientist in charge of the experiment died recently

The cat is pretty active here

The issue with people stowing away in the undercarriage of commercial airliners comes up fairly regularly unfortunately. There was a body that fell from the sky near Heathrow Airport that no one could identify, it had come from a flight from an African country.

I think we've found a Feed Dump we can finally show to children...

How many of the hats do actually fit Graham? Looking back at it, I seem to recall a lot of the hats not fitting. Oo

I was going to come up with a defence for the town of Failsworth, Lancashire and the hat company that has been their home since the 1900's, but then I remembered the town is also the UK and Europe HQ for the people who make those George Foreman health grills. I guess then I need to apologise.

Sorry.

I hereby declare this amorphous solid feline: MEW-BLECK

This episode was good from start to finish. And an extra heaping of nerd. Still, I would like to know the Earth's TARDIS to payphone ratio.

Now I want to get a cat and just feed him bacon.
