Well, we had a big, meaty topic planned this week. We figured a short opening, then into the substance. With us, though, even the most menial comments become monsters. We start off with what we planned to be a short discussion on the show music and Warhammer Online, but in no time we're 30 minutes in and still talking about the fantasy genre. Moving on, we wade a bit into the political waters, which always has an element of danger. As we near the close of the show, we talk about the recent improved scoring by 'Elbot' in the Turing test, the dirty Microsoft Santa, and then for a bizarre finale we discuss which creatures in Star Wars are the most appealing...to eat. Enjoy!

Opening Music: "Alive WIP v2" by George Carpenter
Closing Music: "Blau.ton" by Rauschwerk

Real life: Kangaroo

Star Wars: Hammerhead. Mainly because I\'ve not tried shark either.

Let\'s see, what star wars character would I eat
* The still beating heart of Darth Maul - to gain his skill and power.
* Padme Armidala - because she looks so delicious.
* Jar Jar - just to make him shut the hell up.

What animal would I like to try, Emu, drumstick or breast, either would be delicious I think. By the way, I think Australia is the only country where it\'s legal to eat the animals that are on our Coat of Arms.

P.S. I sometimes use this argument to piss off the Star Wars fanatics, neither Anakin nor Luke are the chosen one, it\'s R2D2, that little robot saves the day so many times, and never gets its memory wiped, so it is always aware of the whole story and lineage of the Skywalkers, in fact it uses them as cover. Try it out on any Jedis you know, they hate it, but seem to have alot of trouble fighting it.

I thought Skippy The Robot Jedi was the true chosen one?

Warhammer 40k does have a MMO coming, but it\'s pretty far off.

And I totally agree with Lando about the political system being beyond fixing. Voting on propositions is all I do anymore.

I do like escargot - so I would enjoy a little Jabba with garlic butter.
