It’s time to come in from the cold and put on your thinking cap, because we have THREE new ideas for you to consider this week. 1) What’s so bad about being bored? 2) Why are Americans so sensitive? and 3) Is that really you on the other side of the teleporter? Watch the episode and discuss it all with your fellow bored, overly-sensitive, teleportation-obsessed Americans!
