    Given that you talked about Sloths during the Sloth episode, I’m a bit surprised you didn’t mention that a group of lions is known as a ‘Pride’.

    In other news…

    Thought you might want to know, in pop culture, there is a manga/anime series called Full Metal Jacket. It would be a bit involved to explain, but there is a character for every Seven Deadly Sin, I remember the Pride character being a military general or something to that extent.

      I think you’re thinking of Fullmetal Alchemist. I actually designed the web site for the trading-card game based on it so I’ve seen the entire series (as research, but it’s really good).

      I’m pretty sure I mentioned it in an earlier podcast though it may have been edited out. The “sins” are all “homunculi” or artificial life-forms/demons.

        I’m glad I actually waded through the comments on this one. I had planned on asking why you hadn’t mentioned FMA and the seven homunculi named after the seven sins. It is definitely a worthwhile watch for any fan of cartoons or anime, and the newer FMA Brotherhood is even better than the original anime series. I’ve heard that it is also truer to the original manga.

    I LOVE your podcast. Not a techie type and can’t remember how I found you, my only podcast subscription, but I am so enamored by your great show. I am a veterinarian and I listen to you every Monday during surgery. You rock! Keep it up boys.

    Strange foot-binding related bit of information…
    So, I have (for my height) large, VERY flat feet. Flat feet as severe as mine cause a number of problems, most of which are more inconveniences than anything else, and I’ve learned to tolerate them with time. However, when I was still fairly young (about 12), we were informed my feet were amongst the 2% or so of flat feet bad enough that the doctors wanted to perform a type of ‘corrective surgery’…in addition to other terrible things like cutting, altering the length, and retying the tendons in my ankles, much of the procedure very closely resembled foot binding.
    Obviously, my family and I declined. Years later in college, I was friends with an older man who had the same procedure done when he was younger, and it made me even happier I had not had it done. His feet were butchered, decades later they were covered in large scars, he had limited ankle flexibility, had derived very little benefit, and in the long run had caused significantly more pain.

    Pride/Vanity ends in tears and a butt load of cash!

    “Mrs Johnson initially sought to have her nose remodelled and dark circles under her eyes removed but Mr Fourie apparently talked her into more extensive surgery. The botched procedure left her face constantly contracting and contributed to the collapse of her financial and IT business. ”

    “Mrs Johnson asked to be awarded a proportion of her potential loss from her business’s collapse, which she estimated to be around $82 million (£54 million).”

    Other pop culture references (that you kind of alluded to) you could have included are the songs “I’m too sexy” by Right Said Fred, and “You’re so vain” by Carly Simon (and covered by Right Said Fred, oddly enough). Great songs.

    ‘so they had to cut a large chunk of his bicep out…’
    – ‘but that’s the part he loves the most!’

    I fucking love you guys.
