How many is too many Pauls?
Also you forgot to credit Kathleen in the credits.

Some day you're going to do a sketch about cloning police officers, and have a serious casting conundrum.

Seems legit.

Also, your split screening is getting MUCH better.

EDIT: does anyone know how to resize img tags on this forum? The usual syntax appears not to work.

The removals company are expanding their operations? Nice.

I love this video! A sequel to one of my favorite LRR sketches ever. I like this idea that a company got access to alien technology, and had a business model of 'Do something incredibly mundane with our super advanced future machines.' But this sketch escalated it, showing us, the public, the dangers of using matter replicator devices as part of our core business strategies.

I had a hard time breathing after the line '0 percent interest for 30 years.'

Also, I think this is the best piece of music in your library. I don't know exactly how many times its cropped up, but its a mark of quality. I had to look up Brain Transplants Made Easy after watching this.

When you add an "s" to the end of the filename on imgur, it will return a thumbnail of the image.

In the image tag you put: http://i.imgur.com/QBAJPaIs.jpg

But the full-sized image is at: http://i.imgur.com/QBAJPaI.jpg

I know. The full size image was too big, so I linked it instead. IMG tags should allow you to resize the image on the fly by specifying the width/height, but it doesn't seem to be enabled on the LRRforums. (FRRums?)

I have never seen that on standard phpBB boards. I think I've seen it on other boards, or with plugins, but not out of the box. The phpBB FAQ doesn't include any reference to resizing images, though I have seen the syntax for it in generic BBCode guides.


The forum will automatically shrink large images so they fit within the post area, though unfortunately that doesn't work with Firefox.

Presumably the "almost four years ago" in the Kickstarter email was due to the spacetime manipulation in these videos and was totally intentional.

I don't know what comment made me laugh the most, the pun or remembering the pun referee.

That had me slightly puzzled too, but my sense of space/time is usually worrisome at best.

Man, this was hilarious. I loved the ludicrous explanation, the logical thought might be counterfeiting, loan sharking or something like that, but no! It goes someplace completely different!

The basis of good humor, misdirection! I loved it.

So until next time, remember, there may be better sources for infinite money, but they don't have... this hat.

Or this one.

Or those over there.

Or any of the fine examples of premium headwear you see behind, next to, and in front of me.

It took me a second viewing to figure out that it was a successor to the moving company one, but I get there eventually.

I think the trick with Paul playing catch with Paul was really neat, overall the green screen and compositing in LRR videos has been improving dramatically.
