Shortly after starting a podcast with a friend he recommended to me the Bose Quiet Comfort 15 noise canceling headphones. While was doubtful about wired over-ear headphones, which I hadn't worn in a decade, none-the-less I tried them out. They immediately became required equipment. Since Bose introduced the QC 15s five years ago they have become a common sight on frequent travelers in airports and train stations the world over. No...

The QC15 will also blink the LED when the battery is low.

(I share your opinion on the battery choice; I used to have a pair of QC3s and they worked fine but the battery always picked a terrible time to run down. With the QC15 I just stick three AAAs in the case and that will last me for basically forever.)

For the last decade of his life, my grandfather lived in a world of faceless voices. His vision lost, he listened to the audiobooks and radio dramas my father brought him: westerns and space operas and stories that, as a child, I would never have spontaneously picked up. But the drive to my grandfather's was long and the tapes already with us, so my father put them on and created for me a childhood filled with the spoken word. The...

Counter-intuitively, this inspired me to buy the "Thank you vlog" (https://subbable.com/cgpgrey/perks/291/orders/new/confirm) perk on Subbable.

Why Would I Want a Podcast App? Listening to podcasts on websites is just about the worst way you can do it.  You have to remember to manually check for new episodes, jumping forwards or backwards is a pain and if the browser crashes you've lost your place.   Podcast apps solve all that and can give you more control over your listening experience.   With the right app you can enjoy what is effectively a talk radio station of stuff...

+1 for +Shifty Jelly pocketCast for iOS and Android. It works straight out of the box if you already have a list of podcasts that you listen to, and has integration with iTune's podcast listing to help you find and subscribe instantly with no fuss.

On top of that, if you make an account with PocketCast you can store your casts and their placement across devices. Its like Overcast and Downcast rolled into one premium experience.

Real talk: the devs are really cool people to listen to when they talk about app design. I'm sold on their software and the philosophy with it.

CPG Grey, even think that American Samoa is like that because Independent Samoa wants it back as a United Samoa??? If Congress does what you propose, then any process like that becomes a lit more difficult.

You sure you didn't do enough research or thinking? Your good but need to do a lit bit more, and be unbiased.

Also, been talk of adding US Virgin Islands to Puerto Rico to form the new state as well. Yet I and many, sadly in the minority, hope it becomes like the Free Associate States instead.

Think about it, cuz that whole Alaska thing you did in your Hong Kong video is not just a joke.

+Paulo Rodrigues Not sure I follow the cake analogy, it sounds like you are saying that the largest party is having it's votes redistributed?
Also, Prime Minister not President of what country?
In STV, the vote is for individual (who may or may not be a member of a party) not party. In an election with only one seat, STV is equivalent to what is called an Instant Runoff, which sounds like what you are describing.
In this case, with only one seat in play, you would likely have each party field a single candidate, so in this instance the distinction between voting for an individual and a party disappears, and this sounds like what you are describing.
But even in this case, it is the party (or individual candidate) with the least votes who gets their votes redistributed to their 2nd preference.
In your cake analogy, if it was split A=49%, B=41% and C=10%, the C party with 10% would have it's votes redistributed, likely giving the win to A, unless all the C voters put the B party as their 2nd pick.

But seriously... are you sure of showing your face if someone buys that perk? They could copy and paste the link or just take a screenshot...

I enjoyed Her  but it's not something I ever would have watched if you didn't make it homework - It'd be great if there was similar homework in future episodes. Especially given what you said about the best way to watch a film - couldn't agree more.

Grey & Brady discuss Kindle follow-up, the triumphant return of plane crash corner, the American Empire video, brain crack, dreams, and a totally-not-too-long-but-Brady-cut-it-off-needlessly discussion about the design of US state flags. You should probably have this page open during that part. Also: Democracy 3. Also: you have homework Brought to you by: Squarespace makes it fast and easy to create your website. Use code HE...
