Episode 50 – National Park Boners

DSC00656We have a week filled with geeky boners of all kinds.  Not your usual geeky topics, mind you.  Rather, we talk about things like marathons and nuclear missle launch facilities.  Because when you talk about what makes you geek out, it isn’t always comics or movies or TV.  Sometimes it’s the stuff that just makes our geeky little hearts beat faster.  We also talk about video games so we manage to bring it back to a core geek topic.  We also read five answers by Stacy from California!

Also, we have a brief blurb for Camp Quest Minnesota at the end of the episode.  Over the holidays last year, we raised enough money to support one scholarship for a child who otherwise couldn’t afford to go.  If you have kids in the right age range, now is the time to sign them up!

Show notes below the fold:

  1. My town in New Leaf is named Caemlyn, and our flag is a rose. Because I haven’t figured out how to draw the White Lion yet.

    • My town is Trashcan, and my flag is a… trashcan. I know Molly and I plan on bringing out systems out to CONvergence fot that sweet, sweet streetpass action.

      My friend code: 0404-6361-3935, add me!

  2. Animal Crossing! I hope Nick and Molly are enjoying the hell out of New Leaf. My town of Hooston is full of puns, as expected for Animal Crossing.

    Great to hear another Geeky Boner episode!

    DAMMIT MOLLY!
    I actually had a mouth full of coffee when you played your nerd-boner sound effect! I nearly DIED.

  4. Yay! You guys got to my questions! You know, I think I’m glad that I watched “John Dies at the End” before reading the book – I didn’t even know it was a book until you guys mentioned it. I usually find the book is better than the movie, and I have a better appreciation of the movie if I see it first. I haven’t read the book yet, but it’s on my ever-growing “to read” list. Now I’m going to have to put the sequel on as well.

    Updating on knitting: Strangely enough, the casting row never phased me. I can cast without even thinking about it. It was the row after that where I was running into a wall. Thankfully, an out-of-state friend of mine took the time to show me. She put her laptop on her lap, facing away from her, with Skype on, and extremely slowly, knitted over and over again until it clicked in my head and I was able to do it. As soon as she teaches me how to do the end bit, change colors, and the end of the scarf, I’ll finally be able to take on this project!

    I loved all of your geeky boners this week. Especially the natural parks boner, because it brought back a lot of good memories of camping and road tripping with my dad and sister. I need to start doing that again.

  5. I’ve been to many of the national parks in California. Yosemite is my favorite place on Earth. So far. Bad weather cancelled the trip we were going to take to the Channel Islands. I have to get back there.

  6. I’ve added you, Nick. Looking forward to visiting Trashcan.
