This game is really, very good.
I also like this video a lot.

You all need to understand how cold the ocean is around here. Paul truly suffered for his art.

Damn that's a lot of refferances, and my first thought when I saw Paul standing in the wather was exectly "Det där ser kallt ut." which in english means "That looks cold."

Though I appreciate the suffering for art and all.
Didn't strike a cord with me this video, nothing at all.

Nice Bouncer statue though.
That raises the awesomeness levels of the vid by about 17.392

Oh God, I'm seeing what nothingness is talking about... I'm picking up on more references each time I watch it! That's really great!

Somehow, I know there's going to be a trivia about which video had the most references to others in it, and this one is it. *writes that down*

And Corax- the girls were Tally, Kathleen, and Ashley.

The empty egg carton from Keytars
Paul's Linux in Instalation Anxiety
Paul's job from Daylight Savings
Underwaterutopipedia, from OMG Bears
The inflatable Lemming from Rapidfire

AND Alex's drawings of jaci and the ogre

The water was damn cold. And i didn't even put anything more than my hand in :P

There was actually 3 girls in this video. Kathleen, which you all know i would assume. Tally, the girl standing next to Jer (and who also was in "Those games we played") is Jeremys girlfriend. And Ashley (From "Morning After" and "Mental Battle") is my girlfriend.

Another reference, probably unintentional.

The Spices!

Ya know, from Man Cooking 1 and 2. They're on top of the fridge. Probably kept there I guess, since it is a kitchen.

Edit: In that shot there is a black device on the counter on the left side of the screen with its lid open. George Foreman Grill? Grilled Cheese Sandwhich Maker? Odd Shaped Waffle Iron?

Addendum: In the laundry room shot, what is that thing on the shelf left of the bleach canisters and stuff? It looks like the stock and scope of a rifle!

Addendum Again: Graham flushed without washing his hands!

OMG MOAR ADDENDA: Shot with Lemming, also features the lamp from Morgan's remote control retrieval attempts. Probably, like the spices, because they keep it there regularly. Also, is the banana a reference to anything?

Also noticed Graham didn't wash his hands :shock: , and the toilet flushing sounded an awful lot like a sound effect, if it was why the need for it, do you have a toilet of such monstrous ferocity that flushing it may cause a rift in space time?

Or perhaps as it's a Linux server you can't flush it as it has important files on it.

Loved the video just nitpicking

I was kinda hoping that when Paul went underwater, he wouldn't come back up. And everyone kind of stands around awkwardly before Graham rubs his hands together and asks "Who wants Poutine?"

Or you could have ended it with them asking should you go in after him, Graham then shrugs then someone mentions the cops, and then Graham reminds them that Paul is legally dead so the cops won't be checking up on him

Where in the name of sweet Hwoaxth do I get a Big Daddy statue?

Also, just watchde the video, and though, I know, I'll be the first one to comment on how cold that looks.

Sadly, people beat me to it.

Can I ge a referance from 1 to Sweet Go My Toe Just Came Off on how cold it was?

Well obviously Linux-based toilets don't have to resort to harsh methods like water. It's probably like with phones, non-Linux phones often generate DTMF sounds to dial, while Linux-based phones typically use more advanced methods of signalling.

So if they have a toilet that's advanced enought to run Linux, it probably doesn't need to flush anymore. But as this would make people feel inconvinient they added such a sound effect.

Ohh and I like the expression "underwater world of underwater wonders that is under the water".

You guys were wearing warm clothes. In the summer. What was the temperature not in the water?
