00:00:00 - Ryan drinks his most complicated beer yet so thankfully Patrick and Charlie keep it simple and Ben has something else (as usual!)
00:07:50 - Patrick tells us how to make MORE money by being charitable. Man, that guy is crafty. Also, not so fast believing that study, the group tested may be a bit too... college, if ya know what I mean.
00:27:36 - The Paleopals then attempt to de-obfuscate the trailer for Centurion in this week's Trailer Trash Talk. However, it's possible there was no plot to unravel in the first place...
00:39:20 - If your mom ever told you not to play with your food then she was clearly unaware of how useful it could be as a building material, according to some very old Asians who figured this out long ago. Put some of that sticky rice between some bricks and that wall ain't coming down.
00:45:54 - Korea is planning to start replacing English teachers with Robots. The question now becomes: Will this disaster be linguistic or apocalyptic?
00:54:33 - PaleoPOW!We have a kiwi flavored iTunes review, an oddly friendly offer, a few trifling tweets, and Patrick is surprised by some criticism.

Show notes are a little less traditional than usual this week seeing as we recorded this episode live at the CalAcademy Nightlife in San Francisco! The show was fun but fraught with distraction. We told what we were drinking, talked about what would happen if the earth stopped spinning, and the trailer for the week was the etymologically indistinct Green Hornet. All this is interspersed with Nightlifers asking questions and just generally being cool. Finally, we bask in the iTunes review left by Cat Eyed Fox.
Forgive the less than stellar audio quality but hopefully, the content makes up for it. Thanks again to everyone who came out to support us and welcome to any new listeners we might have!

00:00:00 - The Paleopals are joined by Ryan North, a computational linguist and creator of Dinosaur Comics (as well as a Canadian). The Americans have beers and the Canadians have other stuff, some more interesting than beer, and some less so.
00:08:45 - Ryan North talks to us about computers using linguists and helps us sort out articles involving computers (supposedly) cracking indecipherable dead languages and how and why to save languages that are going extinct.
01:11:23 - Northern Ryan joins the usual suspects for Trailer Trash Talk. We attack Piranha 3D, with surprising results. We trade more stock than usual, find out if it's long, short, or both.
01:24:23 - We check in with Ryan at The Amazing Meeting in Vegas and plug our live recording at Cal Academy Nightlife on July 15th. Then, we settle in on what is really important, you (talking about or to us). Ben reads a classic review which sparks a Roman history duel between Ryan and Ben.
Wavin' Flag - K'Naan
I Fought Piranhas (Album Version) - The White Stripes

00:00:00 - Ryan is out of character as he demands to keep things moving as the other Paleopals Charlie and Patrick are forced to rush through drinks and a theme.

00:00:00 – Ben has made it to the proper (read: west) coast but is still too far north for Ryan and Patrick who are side by side and sharing a brew.
