Exploding Dinosaur episode 32: Confluence of Bad Ideas
In which we talk about the A-OK comic, an offensive attempt at racial commentary by two clueless white dudes, Hollywood’s blatant whitewashing problem, a judge who thinks a missed lunch date warrants a prison sentence, another judge’s idiotic waiver for same sex marriages (Fuck That Guy), one woman’s incredible response to a dickhole on Tinder, an intelligent anti-trolling feature in online gaming, and one man’s utter dedication to getting to the next save point.
