Ep. 93 – Elephants, Bombs, Ivory, and… Golf balls?

It’s a weird assortment of topics this week.  Panic via mob-mentality ensues at JFK International airport, a dowsing schemes scams Iraq out of – get this – sixty MILLION dollars!

Jeff can finally revel in his Duck Hunt record-holding-glory – that is if he ever takes the time to go and find his old records.  That’s right – the entire history of Nintendo Power ended up in an online archive that you (yes, YOU) can go search.  Find Jeff’s claim or just relive your childhood… whatev’es. http://nparchive.net

Yik Yak – the anonymous, location-based chatting service that was crazy popular with high school & college kids a year ago is pivoting to a non-anonymous platform.  Yeah, we don’t see how that could possibly fail to draw in all of the kids who want their “handle” permanently tied to their Yik Yak account.
