It's a BIG DEAL in the DC area that WMATA won't be extending train hours due to all the trackwork going on in the system. Do you think it would be an embarrassment for the Nationals if the park empties in the 7th or 8th inning of a NLCS or World Series game because fans have to leave to have a ride home?

This was the first I heard of it! That's kinda lame

Does it bother you that "short" is a longer word than "long"? Who's the IDIOT behind that, huh?
Dan Szymborski
1:16
No, kinda like how fat guys are nicknamed slim
OK, we're well past 1, so let's get the Lightning Round going.

You know the rules, everything but excessively personal stuff, work-related things that I can't talk about, and until after the election, politics.

Off topic: Do you think we have free will or are you a fatalist?
Dan Szymborski
1:18
I'm not sure, really. We don't do things randomly, though I don't believe in fate.
Gustavo Fring

Like Fatboy Slim, right?

Did you ever attend an event thinking it was Free Baseball, only to find out it's actually a Freebase Ball? Sounds like there is ample opportunity for confusion in such a situation.
Dan Szymborski
1:18
Freebase Ball sounds like a delightful sport.

Can one get crabs in Ohio?
Dan Szymborski
1:19
I order from Obrycki's once in a while
And when I'm in Baltimore, I usually have a large cooler in the trunk and get a bushel iced if it's the right time of year
1:20
The other type of crabs? Presumably.

Have you ever thought of conducting an entire chat while speaking like a Smurf, but instead of replacing half of your words with "smurf" you used "Nick Markakis"?
Dan Szymborski

No

If you lead a crime ring, would you call it the Onion Ring?
Dan Szymborski
1:22
No. You should not name a crime ring, it makes it easier for an organizational structure to be examined!
My crime ring would be shady and nebulous.

The NFL has less parity than MLB. Socialist paradise in the USSR soviet paradise sense.

Do you have "pictures" in your head for regular participants? Do you wonder why we aren't really working? Do you think about us at all :)

I assume that you're all AI programs made by Apples.

Is Carson Cistuli a part or the cause of said crime ring?
Dan Szymborski
1:23
Carson would obviously be one of our first victims.

Anyone else worried Bork didn't show up today?
