Do you guys get more/less ad revenue depending on whether it is skipped or not (once the option comes up)?
I'm just curious because I got some weird Russian one that's apparently 260 seconds long, but the option to skip came up in about 1 second. If you get more money I'm happy to alt tab for a few mins but if not then I'd probably just skip it.

[edit]I missed the end where it said what it was actually for since I opened a new tab to write this post. Effective ad is Effective.

I get the feeling I should know this but what style are you referring to?

They recorded it with the setup they use for MtG drafting, which is how they got it up so damn fast.

RE: Dominant eyes. Pick an object somewhere in the distance and align your finger with it. Open and close your left eye while the right one is open, then do the reverse. You'll notice that one of them will cause the object to "move", popping out of alignment with the finger, and the other will not.

This is because your brain "trusts" one of your eyes a little more than the other. The one that keeps the object fixed is your dominant eye. If you ever try firing a gun, it's handy to know.

I did not ask the initial question and don't especially care about the answer, but hey.

Hey graham nice shirt! You should wear it for MTGO drafts ;)

Also,
I posted my comment on twitter,
Then opened up the Lrr page saw that you had already posted the cast,
After watching 5 minutes of it you answered my question/comment BEFORE I ASKED IT!
Then after watching the LrrCast I saw your response on twitter, it was super creepy in a awesome way.

It made me smile.

There actually was a time when both Graham and Paul had beards. It was one of the season one Hustles, where Paul used Pogonophobia as the password to get into Graham's apartment, and when asked about it, Paul defined it and said that it was something he had a vested interest in, while stroking his beard, and Graham agreed that he probably does as well. I'm not sure which episode, but it's there.

Paul doesn't drink! My view of him has raised (not that it was ever low), sometimes I feel very alone being a non-drinker!

Also, something I'm not... I don't play magic, so therefore had little to no idea about the Archetypes thing you spoke about... however Spike Jonny seems like it could be the next Jonny episode, He'd gone clean in the last one but if his friends want the old J-Fresh back they might spike his drink!

Also Annika showed up, but no one mentioned anything about her hating things :P My brain was saying "... She hates that" every 10 seconds to what was going on. "She's not facing the camera" My Brain: My cat hates the camera. "She doesn't like going to the vets." "My cat hates the vets" etc :P Somehow I think this was a well established joke missed :P

I got a feeling there was something else I was going to comment on, but I don't remember what it was and I've gotta get to bed, so I'll shut up now!

This LRR cast bought up one major question for me. There's a bagel factory near the moonbase?

I think the crusade Graham mentioned was the fourth, not the third. They were initially financed by Venice, in return for seizing the city of Zara. Alexios IV hired them to support his claim to the Byzantine/Roman throne, then found he couldn't pay them once he was installed on the throne.

@Dominic: Wow, that's weird. My right eye is dominant.

@chetoos: Good point, I got my dates confused.

@Hugums: Yes! It's tasty.

@Phailhammer: You are correct. Straight 4th crusade all day.

Oh, man, Paul used to read Xanth? I loved those books when I was younger! As I got older and read more of them I started to get a bit tired of the same formula being repeated time and time again with the more interesting older characters being phased out or made irrelevant, but it's still a series I look back on fondly.

"Uberphish" sounds like the name of a particularly aggressive form of malware. You open an email containing it and your computer just explodes.

Speaking of con questions: How much do you hate the "Why did you guys skip boat to PATV?" or "Why did you end ENN" questions?

Is it possible that this was a trap question?

There was a hoax once on radio, I forget who did it, but the upshot was that people were sending letters asking, for instance, what it meant if they were right handed and right footed, but left eared and eyed

the bead thing actually really confused me at first. I think I had stumbled across you once or twice before but my first real exposure to you was unskippable and the cross over you did with Zero Punctuation where Graham's avatar is shown with a beard. When I went to your sight I was really confused for a bit because a) I only knew you guys by your voice and b) in most of the videos that I stumbled upon it was Paul with the beard. So the result was, because of beards their was a short bit where I thought Graham was Paul and vise versa, although I thought it was weird that your unskipable voices didn't match perfectly.


And make it easier to find the MTG Academy and MTGO live drafts I have only seen a few and keep missing them.

I don't hate the question, I just wish there was a better way to get that information out there.
Or ANY information.

No matter where (or in how many places) we post information, so many people who are theoretically reading one or more of those places, miss it.

Like when people ask me ON TWITTER, if we're doing more Let's Play videos. The Twitter where we talk about and LINK TO said videos :(

Until I saw the title of this LRRcast, I actually had read the title of last week's video as "punch-uation".

I refuse to know anything unless you come to my house and tell me in person.

You guys ever tried an opt in mailing list thing? You'd think with twitter, facebook, rss feeds, your site, etc, and the fact that most of your stuff is recurring it would be wholly unnecessary, but based on your anecdote maybe not.

The real question is, how are you going to fit everyone around the MtGO cam in the future? Four seems to be the limit. Though I suppose with Cam and Matt moving away, there won't be too many people to join you pretty soon.

Also, you guys reminded me that I still haven't watched through my Crapshots DVD. I think I'll go ahead and do that tonight.

Hurrah, I made Graham sad! At least I think it was me he was referring to. Maybe I shouldn't posted in that thread at all. I think I was just able to really overthink it and my brain forced me to act on those thoughts.

But I'm kind of weird in that I really have a strange need to watch things in order. Like Paul mentioned watching Top Gear from the beginning. I'm kind of like that as well. I need to watch everything in order even if it doesn't have a real structure to it. A couple good examples are Scrubs and 'A Bit of Fry and Laurie.' Hell, I would have even prefered watching the LRR series from the beginning. But I only started watching what they had on the Escapist, so I did so from the videos they had.

Also, do you guys only take questions from Twitter? I ask because that's something I don't use since... well, there'd be nothing for me to tweet about and I have too many sites to keep track of already.
