This show also known as: Nobody gets more ass than a stolen submarine captain.

With our 401st show we enter a new era of Fast Karate, and what better to herald our maintaining the status quo than a little film I like to call Silent Service?

This show is about:

Keep buying shirts! Need many more pre-orders.


    That vertical rise thing is real and so are nuclear torpedoes, and we have some nuclear mines. The Nuclear mines and torpedoes are a cold war thing I think they’re both like 10 or 12 kilotons, we have an undisclosed number of them throughout the fleet. And the proper question is what CAN’T you kill with a nuclear torpedo? Also they’re good if you don’t feel like aiming beyond “the bad guys are in that direction”.

    The only things you need PCI slots for nowadays are Video cards, capture cards, and SATA/ PCI expansion cards.

    As for ‘where the story goes weird,’ for me it’s the moment where the US handing a NUCLEAR SUBMARINE to Japan should be somehow secret- to the point of faking the death of the crew- instead of the most publicized event out there.
    After that, it just kept getting weirder.
    Taking out the entire US pacific fleet single handedly was where I just threw my hands up and declared, quote ‘Fuck it all, you exist in your own little fuckheaded reality, fuckheadia, and you are welcome to it.’
    Fuckheadia became a shorthand for a lot of bullshit back then.
    Glad to see this thing got some of the flak it’s due.
    Not all, but some.

    DAVE! you can bring up the task manager directly by pressing Ctrl + Shift + Esc

    Not only does this save you the trouble of going through the laggy ‘rescue screen’, but sometimes, like in your case, that won’t even work!

    Ok guys you are wrong I live in manitoba canada which is about level with Siberia. Our average temperature in winter can drop with the wind chill to about -60 C but it averages at about -25-35 C a day in january. Remember that is centigrade rather than Fahrenheit.

  • That’s helpful, but in my case I doubt it would’ve worked anyway. Interaction with anything was basically impossible. And now I have a new video card, so I’ll hopefully never have to deal with it again.

  • As soon as I get a job, I’m buying a T-shirt!

  • I hae to say it but I prefer food talk then tech talk.

    I prefer food talk also but I love talking about food. I mean who doesn’t love food?

    What’s that song at the end that sounds awfully similar to Chip N Dales Rescue Rangers? Was that a remix?

  • Josh Bytes

    That song is from the television series MacGyver

  • MacGyver – Rescue Ranger!

  • Maur

    Well I guess he sort of was one eh. Thanks. I never got around to watching MacGyver though from what I’ve seen he was kind of like the Jack Bauer of his time, he could do anything.

    By sheer coincidence, when I started on this podcast I was in exactly the same pickle detailed: about to reinstall Windows and tryjust video card drivers first because I had failed to get Windows 7 to work with a crazy ATI video card. Surprising, this worked as soon as I mustered the will to try it, but before that I was sorely in need of moral support. Thanks.

    What do you kill with a nuclear torpedo?
    Well come on, guys: they’re Japanese.
    The answer is WHALES.
