I'm coming to Dave's defense about the orange trampoline. I used to go over to one of my mom's students' houses and play on one and we would fill it with water in the summer. It was fun. A poor kid's version of having a pool, one might say. I remember this scenario being super awesome, but now, looking at the details, it seems super sad.

Also, chestnuts, I have also heard this but am not sure if it works. I live in a basement suite with a girl who regularly screamed at the sight of a spider and I would have to run to retrieve it. She filled the corners of the apartment with chestnuts, but I would still have to dig spiders out from whatever she had squished them with.

When I lived in Japan I'd occasionally get praying mantises in my apartment. I tried to get them out without hurting them and they'd fully smack at me with their little legs. Which would be totally badass if they were bigger, but which kind of sucked because they'd smack me hard enough that they'd bust themselves up with their own smackin'. So eventually I started leaving them inside so as not to hurt them and in hopes they'd take care of the moths and mosquitoes...which they did. It's really awesome to watch them stalking stuff, and cleaning themselves meticulously after they eat. They fly, too. Amazing, amazing critters.

The one creepy thing about them is that they have some kind of binocular vision, helps with all the predating I guess...but they can actually turn their heads and track you as you move, while the rest of them stays stock-still up in the corner of the ceiling.

So I was very excited to see this week's guest was one of my favorite comedians, and I was even more excited when my girlfriend made it in to the overheard segment with her TA overheard. Instantly my favorite episode, I think it made me laugh out loud more than any other. Well done sirs.

Also my girlfriend is in fact hot.

Know what else seemed fun? Mesh trampoline with a sprinkler underneath. Guuuuuurl.

Thanks. That was fun. We did it the night of our live podcast, which will be our next episode.

There's a relief pitcher for the Colorado Rockies named Huston Street (pronouced like the city as I've usually heard it). I've always thought it would be pretty great if the Astros signed him and then he got traded to the Yankees.

can anyone locate a picture of this supposed "orange trampoline?" I'm having a hard time finding any evidence that such a thing ever existed, or may have been a Canada-only thing, since the CIA kept our trampoline technology closely guarded.

edit: though I could not find a picture of said orange tarp trampoline, I did find a picture of pretty much the best room in all of Canada.

Where is this and how can I go about booking it for my birthday... for a week?

Although I do not have photographic evidence of it, my best friend in grade school had an orange trampoline that we used to play on all the time, sometime with water. Super fun timez.

I found the Duo Tang discussion fascinating - it's not a popular type of folder in the US. I don't know that there's an equivalent genericized term in the US - although if you're of a certain age, probably Trapper Keeper (a souped-up 3-ring binder).

Speaking of dated terms, I worked a job where I designed a typical pocket folder, and everyone kept calling it a Pee-Chee. Now I'm old enough that I knew what that meant, but was surprised (and a little sad) to discover they're no longer made:

Also - Duo Tang is a retired brand, having been bought by Esselte.

This concludes a rousing edition of "folder chat"

Voila!

They were called Sundance Trampolines (still are, apparently). May have been a B.C. thing. I don't recall the one we had having those fancy pads over the springs, though. Maybe you had to pay extra for those.

"T.A. stands for TURN AROUND." Oh man. I have such a comedy crush on Kyle Kinane.

Confession: I'm experiencing some serious overheard envy. Really thought I had a chance with my call about "leftover pasta and meat sauce from kappa kappa gamma," but apparently not. Soooo saaaaaaad.
