Wow who knew Beej had such amazing stamina.
Its good to know Siri doesn't do background checks before letting someone in your house. Glad Windows Phones don't have anything like Siri... o crap Cortana O_O

Oh, I didn't catch until the second time around that Beej steals a cookie to replenish his electrolytes.

This was a good video.

I'd have to assume that sometime in the 6 hours Beej removed his shirt before eating that cookie. Super fun video guys!

...Beej is just trolling those of us who watch his stream, right? I'm not sure I want to know what a 50 sub special will get tomorrow...

Wow, I finished watching this and said "what that was only three minutes?" it seemed like there was much more to it than that. Great work.

Is it bad that the main thing I took away from that is that I AM NEVER EVER TOUCHING BEEJ'S PHONE

Otherwise, excellent :)

So uh...the stinger is maybe a little TOO authentic to have a no-context GIF made out of it. Enjoy this instead:

And here I thought, from how it started, that the main joke was going to be numerous ways to restate how much 8 is a bigger release number than 7. Shows what I know about writing! :-)

What? There's a new version of iOS out? Time for me to...completely ignore it for at least three months until all the kinks are worked out of it.

In the meantime, man, Beej gets the most interesting parts doesn't he?

Excuse me, I apparently have to go, Siri is letting hobos into my house again and I need to throw windows phones at them until they leave.

Ok... first of all. The secret to Beej's stamina is COOKIES? I need to start baking again it seems... Also I love Alex as a crazy? hobo.

I was quite entertained. Real shame Beej can't share his tips doctors don't want you to know on 6 hour stamina.
Well, do you want an ethical solution or an effective one?

Gah, couldn't even catch this thread from the kickstarter forum. I blame aliens.

Cool video though. The "predictive text" segment was especially well done - Cam really sold the progression from moderate shock, to consideration, to "whatever".

Well, now I know why people use euphemisms.

Because "urine sex" sounds awful.

I just love the expression and complete lack of interest that they each have during the conclusion of the conversation. The "whatever, I'm sure it's fine" look is at its finest here.
