Have you missed out on the last 222 episodes of HWIDG? Well, congrats! Because this is our big recap episode! That's right, we're recapping every past issue we've had so you can get caught up in time for the big finale next week! Oh and you devoted listeners? You'll still have to tune in for the new issues this week that we've interspersed throughout the 39 hour episode! So call your boss and tell him you've got the runs, because for the next 39 hours you're going to go through THE GAUNTLET and:
- Mac Obfuscation
- Snow Removal
- Action v. Emotion
- GM Ultima

There's a certain level of wizardry when it comes to computers. Zeroes and ones caused by electrons run through a bunch of metals? The user doesn't need to see that far down. All code actively running? That's overload. But when it comes to Macs, I think what they know that their $2500 laptops are used as Facebook machines or class notebooks, so they design for that. You don't need to see any of this dumb computer junk, just click the colorful picture that takes you to Facebook.
What's the easiest way to get rid of snow? Shoveling? Tiresome by hand, annoying by truck. Blowing? You're just making it not your problem. Melting? Then you've got water and if it's cold enough to snow it'll freeze. So what do we do? Here's an idea: nothing. Federal snow days. No one does anything. Stay home and enjoy it instead of just making it worse for everyone.
Actions are logical. Emotions can be illogical but you can get to one from an action. Unfortunately it seems like a lot of media these days focus on the emotions without taking into account logical actions to cause them. I can't feel sad just because you show me a picture of a sad person. Put me through some trauma. Then I'll think about grabbing the Cherry Garcia.
The GM Ultima is a skateboard. It's a big-ass skateboard with a battery, but it's a skateboard. Supposedly you can put a sports car top on it or a big jacked-up truck and everything in between. So at what point do you not have a car? Because I think this is past that point. You have an electric skateboard with seats, congratulations. I'll be impressed once you can do a 900° Christ Air into a sick tail pipe grind.
