“Later, he was to decide that Andrew’s life had been fractally weird. That is, you could take any small piece of it and examine it in detail and it, in and of itself, would turn out to be just as complicated and weird as the whole thing in its entirety.”
― Neal Stephenson, Cryptonomicon

Steve is a very funny and nice Twitterer and is pals with all the cool people online. I love a good name sake on the podcast even if he spells it incorrectly.

Steve’s Story: Never Trust an Optimistic Mountaineer
My friend Glenn is a super positive person, but when I go climbing with him, when things go wrong, his never give up attitude leads us to trouble, like the first time, when we went climbing at Smith Rock State Park.

FOTS 27 @panmidwest is very nice indeed

Friends of the Show episode 27 with Kevin @panmidwest!

“One doesn’t realize in early life that the price of freedom is loneliness. To be happy is to be tied.”
-C.S. Lewis in The Collected Letters of C.S. Lewis, Volume 3: Narnia, Cambridge, and Joy

Kevin is a very funny twitter fellow and nice person! He burst on to the scene about a year ago and has been killing it, just great stuff all the time. He does a regular tweet call Mustache Mondays, we’ll get into why the ‘stache is a key part of the panmidwest brand later. Welcome Kevin!

Kevin’s Story
1. Hitchhiking in Zambia at Midnight — my friend got malaria and was hospitalized so we wanted to make sure he had someone stay with him overnight in the hospital. Finding our way there was a challenge.

2. I never expected to be tear gassed — relaxing at a cafe in Podgorica, Montenegro on a Saturday was suddenly interrupted by tear gas.

3. “Theresa” — when my neighbor broke up with her boyfriend, my roommate and i had to help her keep him away. until we realized she was stretching the truth about his antics

FOTS 023 @notabeanie vs James Corden

This week’s friend is a long time DM pal of mine and fellow Canadian, also she is originally from my University Town, so that is fun! She is currently out west studying and working hard to stay alive.

I’m talking about Annie she has many names, Anniebean, Beanbab, Beano, Beanbag, Sweet bean, Beanie Baby, Beans, Beanwich, Jelly Bean, Beanlet, Sweet Baby Bean, Bene. As a second choice, I have been known also to just respond to “Bean.”

“Always, I’d believed that the Spanish verb hablar meant “to have,” so that when one said “Sí, hablo español,” one was saying, “I have Spanish—I have command of the Spanish language.” Operating out of that misconception, I said to the handsome young Cubans, “No hablo Chiclets.” They smiled courteously.

Later, I learned that what I’d said was, of course, “I don’t speak Chiclets.”

At first I felt pretty dumb. But then I thought, “Well, it was an honest statement. I don’t speak Chiclets.”

Then I thought: “Why not?”

In the months since, I’ve been teaching myself to speak Chiclets. Let me tell you, it’s easier to speak Chiclets than to read or write it.”

– Tom Robbins, Still Life With Woodpecker
