The following is the AskLRR portion of the Road Trip Time! LRRcast.
bar room hero asks:
- Are any of the cast left handed?
Just Bill. They talk about how when the Romans marched, they said,"sinister, dexter" rather than "left, right", so Bill is "sinister". Paul actually thinks that Bill is right handed but uses his left hand just to piss everybody off, just out of spite.
- After seeing all the game guides Matt has in the Uwe Boll vids, is he actually, secretly, shit at computer games? Why do you buy guides rather than use GameFAQs?
Matt: Well I don't think it's a "secret", really. I am terrible at video games. I love them, I adore them, I play them pretty much nonstop, but that doesn't change the fact that I'm atrocious at them. You will beat me at any video game you challenge me to unless I'm playing Soul Calibur 2 in the arcade as Xianghua and you invade my conquest mode game, in which case I will 3-hit combo seven people in a row, finish my conquest mode, and then tell you that, "Oh you know, if you just let me finish you could've been playing this all along on your own anyhow." That said, I don't actually buy the game guides. I work at a video game store, and typically after about 3 or 4 months of game guides sitting on the rack, their price is reduced to zero and the guides are then "destroyed". So I take them, but only once their free, and with the permission of the other people I work with who shall remain nameless. For most games I will go to GameFAQs, I will never typically spend money on a strategy guide unless it's for a Final Fantasy game and comes with a bunch of rad art.
- Which Star Trek series is your favourite and why? And favourite movie?
Paul: Deep Space Nine (he likes the story arc), and either Star Trek IV or First Contact. Graham: Next Generation (although he loves Deep Space Nine). Matt: Deep Space Nine (because of Ezri Dax), and IV or First Contact. Also Wrath of Khan. Morgan: Next Generation or the original (depending on what mood he is in, and Captain Kirk is his favourite captain), and either IV (has seen it more than any other movie and during his childhood) or Wrath of Khan. James: Next Generation (he grew up with it), and Wrath of Khan. Jer: Next Generation (Picard is his favourite captain, and he thinks they tied it up nicely in the last few seasons), and IV. Bill: Next Generation (but he really likes the original series), and Wrath of Khan and First Contact. Nathan: Deep Space Nine (good for the epic quality), but Patrick Stewart's the man, and Wrath of Khan. Also the Next Gen finale (everyone agrees).
- Do Canadians play much cricket?
No, not really. In Victoria, yes, but elsewhere, no.
- What's the price of fuel like over there?
It's around the $1 CAD per liter mark.
- Do any of you plan to get your driver's licenses any time soon (other than Matt)?
Actually, Graham and Morgan were saying that they were going to beat each other in going down to the DMV and actually signing up for their L test so that they have motivation to do it (and so they can spite Matt). Jer has a wandering eye (he doesn't have 3D vision), so he says he probably shouldn't drive.
- If you could separate Quebec or Ontario from Canada which one would people choose?
The general consensus is Ontario. Graham says that Canadians mostly have Ottawa because that's where most of the politicians live. Nathan says that anything east of the Rockies is suspect (everyone agrees).
