Partial Transcript: Episode 28 (Open Mic)
Virginia: I’m really dragging right now.
Nick: Cause we’re going to do an open mic. We’ve recorded two podcasts tonight, and we’re running out of ideas for the third.
Virginia: Everyone is going to realize how little planning we put into this.
Nick: Sometimes you gotta lift up the curtain, pull up the dress.
Andrew: That sounds awful.
Virginia: That image, and the gesture you just did…
Nick: Open mic. What’s been on your minds? I know me and Andrew have been staring at these gun laws and wondering if guns will be illegal soon.
Andrew: Just reading these things are panic-inducing. Why would you do this?
Nick: The only guns we’ll be allowed are BB guns and water pistols. The assault rifle ban could ban water pistols. It’s based on the grips and sights.
Andrew: It’s only for chemically-propelled guns. Won’t apply to water guns. I did learn that Australia requires you to get a firearm license to buy a paintball gun.
Nick: I just think it would further explain the idiocy when you have 11 year olds waiting in line to buy their paintball gun.
Andrew: I think you have to be 18 to get a license, so kids won’t even be able to play.
Nick: It is pretty dangerous. I saw something funny on YouTube. It was the video of the celebrities calling for action on gun control. It’s “We demand a plan!”
Andrew: We demand a plan, but we’re not going to specify anything. It’s the typical “Won’t someone think of the children!” Emotional reaction.
Nick: Every time the celebrities would say something about gun control, they would cut to a clip of them using guns irresponsibly in movies.
Virginia: That’s awesome.
Nick: Some of them were people running down the street and firing into the air. That shows exactly how stupid those people are.
Andrew: Almost all of the actors and actress in that video have shot people in movies.
Nick: It’s funny because it’s easy to laugh at them. But, they also didn’t specify a plan. We can’t laugh too much or we’ll be classified as gun nuts.
Virginia: You guys are definitely on a list somewhere.
Andrew: I’m on more than one list, I’m sure. I don’t look forward to flying any time soon.
Virginia: When is the last time you flew?
Andrew: About a year ago. I’m actually probably not on a list. I’m a moral, upstanding citizen.
Nick: I’m on a list.
Virginia: Which list?
Nick: There’s countries you can’t go into.
Andrew: Bull. You mean the ones that no one in the US is allowed to enter due to their political climate?
Nick: No. Because I have some stamps from other places I’ve been, they wouldn’t let me into other countries.
Andrew: Are you serious. Like what?
Nick: Like Korea.
Andrew: So you can’t go to like South Korea?
Nick: No. I can to South Korea. There are countries that have issues with Korea. If you have a stamp on your passport saying that you’ve been to Korea, they won’t let you in.
Virginia. Why don’t you just get a new passport?
Nick: That’s illegal.
Andrew: It’s like renewing it.
Virginia: Then you have a new passport, and the stamp is gone. Problem solved.
