Let's fire up that juicy Lightning Round.
The rules of the Lightning Round are simple - I must answer every question, so long as it's off-topic and not one of a few categories (work-related, personal Qs that I choose not to answer)
This continues until I catch up or I get bored.
AND GO

Off Topic Q here, Are you a member of the air sex society?

I am not.

In defense of the Rockies, they did not directly support the Kosovo Genocide. They only endorsed Milosevic for his tax plans, and decried their support in 2003.

what is the one card that at first glance seems awesome in arena mode but is actually terrible?
Dan Szymborski
1:15
Many Warrior cards found in Warrior Control decks that people think are good in Arena.
Arena is a world of tempo, so Warrior cards like Shield Block or neutral used heavily by Warrior like Acolyte of Pain aren't that good in Arena

Which Naxx/GvG card will you miss the most in standard? Which will you be most glad to not see again (unless you play wild)?

Do you like fried chicken sandwiches? I went to the Mets game saturday night and it was a terrible game in the freezing cold, but the spicy chicken sandwich from Fuku was insanely good, best ballpark food I've ever had.
Dan Szymborski

Nothing wrong with a good chicken sandwich

Constantly a day late and a dollar short, but did you watch WrestleMania last weekend? A sentence I've never uttered before: "If it weren't for the women's match, that card would have been terrible."
Dan Szymborski
1:16
Yes. It was kinda lame - the women's match was one fo the highlights
Dario Cueto
1:16
Did you not chat last week because you were THAT disappointed by Wrestlemania? It was bad. Nakamura though...
Dan Szymborski

I was at Great American Ballpark

If Trevor Story was a Hearthstone card, what would he look like?

+3 Attack during its first full turn on the board?

Has anyone misread Fan Graphs as Fang Raphs and been disappointed that there are no vampiric ninja turtles (or Italian painters) on the site?
Dan Szymborski
1:17
People eat at Taco Bell, so any sort of craziness is possible.

April is the month that the Old Gods come out.

Are you concerned with how terrible Whispers of the Old Gods looks so far?
Dan Szymborski
1:18
No, I think it'll be fine.
The standard change makes it better - if Naxx and GvG weren't rotating out, OG would be terrible
Mark

Only 3 more weeks of the stalest Hearthstone meta ever. I couldn't even be bothered to get my Tavern Brawl pack last week.
Dario Cueto

Was Shane O Mac's dive overshadowed by the women's match?
Dan Szymborski
1:18
Should have been. The dive was cool, but it was also part of a rather incohesive match. Walk-spot-walk-spot-walk-spot
GHT

Bebop vs. Rocksteady in a cage match
Dan Szymborski
1:19
Bebop strikes me as the more focused of the pair, so I'd take him

It's not about April O'Neil, it's about ethics in turtle reporting. - Dan Szymborski on 4Chan

I want nothing to do with the supporters of *or* the critics of Gamergate.
It's a multi-faceted ball of assholery, advocacy, and dishonesty on all sides. So I stay away from it completely.

Bork rhymes with dork
Dan Szymborski

That is accurate
