Hi Flegon and Daniel,

I was trying to prove to my dad that if I stood on the rake it wouldn’t hit my face because the handle was slightly crooked. I was wrong. brooze number 1.

about 6 months later (last week) I was at a place called infinity. The room I was in had mirrors for the floor, walls and roof. The lights flashed on and off and lasers created a star like effect. After playing for a while I tried to find the exit. I forgot to keep my hands in front of me, and I walked full pelt into a mirror.
Yes, I am either clumsy, or just plain stupid.


PS.I am a 12 year old girl from Australia. (back in 9-30-10)

After Daylight Stupid Time, three years ago, Chuck had a surprise.

I woke up panicking that I was half-an-hour late and wondering why my alarm didn’t go off. Then I remembered and went back to sleep.


There are only so many ways you can spend that hour. I watched a movie and then when the hour started over i had to restart the movie because if i hadnt there would have been some serious time loop problems with me watching two differnt parts of the same movie at the same time

geez wat else would u do?


Maybe married now?

Hey Ramen noodle, this is Ian from Indiana, I’m a big fan and I have a funny story that I would like to share.


Just kidding. So there’s this girl I like named Jenna (but that’s not what the story’s about) so I was hanging out in PE/gym and she’s dribbling a basket ball or something, and I say something probably hitting on her or something and she throws the ball at me. I catch it, but she threw it really hard so it jammed my thumb, anyway, it hurt for a while. That night I decide to pull a prank on her and wrap my thumb in gaws and tell her that she broke it or something. The next day in first period, I put the gaws on my thumb and tell her that I got it X-rayed and the Doctor said it was broken. For a minute, I think she believed me but she didn’t really have any sympathy anyway. a few minutes later I say, “just kidding, it’s not broken”, I can’t remember what she said, but I was saying stuff like, “man, that was a good prank, I mean you’ve gotta admit that was good, I had you for minute there”, I was really proud of myself, then she says, “Ian, your fly’s unzipped.”

Thanks for the laughs!

    So… listening to old podcasts, trying to catch up…and you actually read Maginnis’ letter on episode 51. Now, I understand that you had some other things going on around that time, but it turns out, you aren’t as bad at keeping up to date on feedback as you thought.

    • Daniel J. Lewis

      Ha ha. Thanks!

        Hmmmm, and Ian’s letter was read in episode 57! I listened to the Daylight savings podcast, and Chuck’s letter was in that one, however, I don’t remember hearing Alexandra’s, so it is possible that I am caught in a sideways time loop. (I would look up which episode was the Daylight savings one…but I realized when I started typing that this sounded kind of fanboy-ish…so I won’t.)
