    You are a human being. Which means "you" are actually one human plus the trillions of microscopic life forms living in you. And "you" are living in a civilization that's only had microscopes since the 1670s, and only begun to understand what microscopes reveal. And "you" are living on a planet that was dominated by microbial life for about half its natural history, with more complex species only showing up in the last quarter, like a Miami Heat fan in between South Beach clubs. Which all begs the question: is this the microbes' world, and we're just living in it? And what does that mean for us as a species?

    On this week's episode of The Cracked Podcast, Alex Schmidt sits down with science journalist Ed Yong (The Atlantic) for a look at the incredible world of microbes we've been living in this whole time, covered brilliantly in Ed's book I Contain Multitudes. Find out how trillions of tiny bacteria & germs guide everything from your nutrition, to our psychology, to the evolution of life on earth itself.

    Man I feel like I can draw a line from Jack leaving Cracked to the show no longer using a variety of licensed music to episodes becoming an hour to this episode only being 45 minutes and it's a best fit line around a bunch of points representing terrible meetings with Cracked's shitty new owners.

    Who is even still there to be on the podcast?

    Related, I went to unsubscribe from Cracked's YouTube channel a couple weeks ago and there banner was still for a Roger video that was supposed to come out a few days after the big firing. Was depressing.

    Waffles are my fav but I sure as hell wouldn't turn down some good pancakes.

    French Toast is also really good but it's more a centerpiece than a compliment like waffles/pancakes.

    Look, the Luke and Mike LMTYAHSs are still there, so someone has to listen to them, and it might as well be me. (They're pretty good, really.)
    "We were not joking last week when we said that we're back." There are like 5 episodes of this left.
    "Make Google Glass, John." "Google Glass wasn't even a thing when this panel was written." And since this podcast, it's gone back to not being a thing. Something about the passage of time here is horrifying.
    oh no Bill Cosby jokes, oh NO
    Thank god Luke put in the Warhammer of Zillyhoo song when he said Warhammer of Zillyhoo.
    The Wrinklefucker is good.
    "Jade's the worst character." "Oh, there are s- don't- listen, there is plenty of time to decide on the worst character, there is no reason to rush that decision." you cannot call Jade the worst character, there are... so many characters
    "Why are they in El Dorado?" "That's a great question, Mike."
    "It's the reason everybody went after gold, it started the gold rush."
    "They both have buck teeth." "Yeah, they look kind of similar." "Are they the same person?" Yes, that's it, you nailed it.
    "Listen to the old episodes again. With all the awful audio quality. It builds character."
    "I am the player. You are the played."
    Luke cannot fucking read this Kanaya line.
    "You bested me. You doed it."
    "Like on a subconscious level, I just know every word of this story." "Ugh, that makes me so sad."

    I feel like part of the problem with people recognizing racism is just people failing to recognize how statistics effect other people's perspectives. For example about 13% of Americans are black, be they African Americans or descendants from black cultures throughout Europe or South American countries like Jamaica or whatever. Let's round that down to 10% for simplicity sake. Now let's say simply hypothetically 10% of Americans act prejudice toward black people. Not openly KKK cross burning racist or even casual racism on Xbox Live racist but they follow them around convenience stores or cross to the other side of the street or they bid less money for items on eBay because they see a black person holding them.

    It might be perfectly logical that some portion of white people will say there's less racism than there is because they don't experience or notice it from the vast majority of people in their sheltered babysoft cartoon lives. At the same time it's perfectly logical that the response from that 13% of Americans that are black people is going to be "EVERY FUCKING DAY."

    Okay I listened to episode 14 of the Luke and Mike LMTYAHS, so I'm back to a few newer episodes, and I'm just going to get really confused about what's going on in all the different LMTYAHSs, which is how it should be.
    Tavros trying to troll Dave and then blocking him is great.
    "And there's a link to a Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff page where that's the punchline." "Not clicking it." See this is why Mike didn't finish the comic, he didn't engage with it properly.
    "Let's have a talk about a kickstarter where I read the Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff comics." "Oh boy." "Yeah, right? Hello twenty grand." These days, that would be a patreon goal (I don't know if this was actually before patreon was big.)
    "He didn't think that through, Hussie." "I guess not." "What an idiot."
    "Dear Jade, I hate... time in this fuckin..." same tbh
    "I think the white pieces are from El Dorado"
    "If him and Jade are in El Dorado," "Uh huh" "that means Dave and Rose have to end up in El Denado."
    "This whole intermission is about Jack Reacher or whatever, right?"
    "I'm just imagining like, little tiny cans of TAB with little tiny anime shades on them." "Alright, that is pretty adorable."
    "We're probably gonna break from the convention of every episode being 41 minutes and 30 seconds, and just fit the whole intermission into one episode, because, we don't need to spread that out over multiple episodes." "I forgot that was a stupid dumb thing that you did."

    Sadly, that's a December 2017 game, so it would've been released after they recorded the GOTY podcasts.


    Similarly, I just started Gravity Rush 2 last night and it is a joy. And it too was a 2017 game that smartly had a Photo Mode.

    I was actually just joking about Best Surprise being “Dan being super into Opus Magnum”.

    I wish I could wrap my head around Zachtronics games though.

    I’m generally not, but Opus Magnum seems so far out of his interests (magic shit, programming, not super actiony), I was pleasantly surprised at how into it he was.
