The BIG GAME is next week, and we're spending every waking moment preparing for it. After some initial confusion regarding the Super Bowl vs. Big Game Hunting, we talk about various foods found at Superbowl parties, Domino's Pizza foray into different types of food, the merits of having a party every Sunday evening, why Superman can't play in the Super Bowl, why Batman is a bad detective and debate whether or not an NFL player should be allowed to get a free pass to Disneyworld if it's possible that he was involved in a violent crime.
We also announce the details of our upcoming tour in UK and Ireland and prepare to be shipwrecked on the way there. If you want more details on our tour, check out www.tcgte.com/tour.
In a new installment of Tim and Tom Solve Your Problems, we tackle a question from a listener who is ashamed of his job working for a charity.
This week's episode is brought to you by MailChimp. Check out their awesome service for free at mailchimp.com.
This week we recap the 2013 CES! Learn all about the latest gadgets and gizmos, as well as an old second rate Spencer's Gifts-style store in the local mall called Gadgets and Gizmos. Before the tech talk Tim goes over some of his favorite dangerous car bits and Tom gets a flu shot from a somewhat shady Chinatown doctor.
Once the tech talkin' begins we go through The Verge's best of CES 2013 list and discuss this year's monstrous 4K TVs, convertible laptops, the Fitbit Flex, Oculus Rift virtual reality glasses, the Pebble smartwatch, Qualcomm's disastrous keynote presentation, Audi's self-driving cars and Microsoft's IllumiRoom technology which might just find itself in the Xbox 720.
Everyone's getting the flu. Don't leave your home. If you must go out into the world, don't shake any hands or talk to anyone who isn't wearing a surgical mask. And for Pete's sake, don't kiss anyone on the mouth until at least April.
Luckily Tim and Tom have managed to avoid getting sick so far. This week we discuss the flu epidemic, getting a flu shot (including Tim's experience with a bewitching pharmacist and an unruly customer) and telling your doctor to shut up.
We also resurrect the segment "A Particular Type of A**hole You Didn't Know Existed Until The New York Times Pointed Them Out To You" and disagree about who the titular a**hole is in this situation. And in a new installment of "Tim and Tom Solve Your Problems" we suspect the young lady seeking our advice is not being completely honest with us.
This week's episode is the first installment of our new series of Urban Legends themed episodes (which will appear monthly, or until we forget about them). This week we're talking about college.
Are sorority houses illegal under some states' brothel laws? Do you get straight A's if your roommate commits suicide? Did some nerd win a car for reading the small print in a textbook? Do you really get 200 points on the SAT for spelling your name correctly? Tim and Tom get to the bottom of these questions and more, with the help of the extremely informative website snoops.biz.
Also, we discuss mistakes we made on New Year's Eve and somehow get on the topic of Kindergarten Cop. In a new Tim and Tom Solve Your Problems, we help out a smart dude with a dumb co-worker. (There are Go-Karts involved.)
