I think the smell is toast. That’s it! I smell toast. I’m not making toast, but nevertheless I smell toast. Toast. I’m just going to lie down for a bit. Don’t worry. I’ll be fine. I’m sure of it. Anyone have any jelly or jam?

Also on the show I’m sure I talk about something interesting (not politics) but honestly I can’t remember. Or maybe I can remember, but I just don’t want to. No Regerts.

Wine. The history of wine. The places. The time. The people. The weather. Wars. All of these and more determine the taste you get from any particular bottle of wine. In the past I felt wine was boring, not interesting. Mostly because I don’t drink wine, never has the palette for it. But after watching a few shows on Sommelier’s and wine — I’m hooked!

Also on the show I give the location of the origin of the universe (it’s right outside Kenosha Wisconsin), Penn Jillette gets me thinking, 2 of the most awesome girl names, Pokemon Go (again), my butt, and other stuff.

This past week I visited my parents, which by some strange twist of fate, are quite a bit older than myself, and that got me thinking — will I get this old one day? Older? Will I turn into the old man that yells at clouds? Learn out about my fear of getting older on the show this week.

Also on the show, some people get hurt on carnival rides, sexism is all over the Olympics, I don’t talk about politics at all, and other stuff.

I’m in the elevator as the doors begin to close. Someone runs up, reaches their hand up way in the air (similar to the Nazi salute) and reaches in-between the doors to force them to reopen so they can get in. They look at me and say, “I can’t believe they put the sensor way up there, you have to reach way to to the red light to stop the doors from closing.” I’m like (to myself), Really? At that height? You think that’s the sensor? What about short people or someone in a wheelchair? Are you saying the elevator wasn’t designed to accommodate those people? The doors will always close on them? (Listen for more)

Also on the show, a skydiver with no parachute, insights into how the election works, rich people shop on Etsy, and other stuff.

Turns out Yoda has some great insight into human nature. His views of the dark and light side of the force have real world implications — especially in politics. Actually, now that I think of it, so did Grand Moff Tarkin who said, “Fear will keep the local systems in line. Fear of this battle station.” Want to know more? Listen to the show.

Also on the show, BoJack Horseman, a man (with no spouse and a lot of free time) captures all the Pokemon in the US, millennials aren’t wearing bras, and other stuff.

When I hear someone say, “Get A Life” it screams of a strong lack of knowledge or awareness about what they are yelling about. Also, just in case you didn’t know, “lacking knowledge, information, or awareness about something in particular” is a definition of the word ignorant. I only say that because If I say someone is ignorant up front, people tend to think I’m insulting them when in fact … well, hopefully you see the irony.

To learn more about what I’m talking about (hint — it’s Pokemon Go and Fantasy Football) give me a listen. It won’t take long. Just as long as it takes to have a healthy bowel movement.

When tragedy happens, people pretend to care. They say Black Lives Matter or Blue Lives Matter (which btw, blue is not a race, it’s a job) or All Lives matter. But if all lives really mattered, wouldn’t we be trying to help those who need help? Wouldn’t we be trying to feed the homeless? Or … listen to the show to hear more.

Also this week, I explain which lives matter, why llamas are important, how Pokemon Go will completely take over the world because you got to catch them all, a gay trek controversy (fyi, I was never surprised that Scotty was gay), robots forced to kill, and other stuff.

I can’t believe I’ve been podcasting for 8 years (since 6/29/2008). This means I have been able to consistently, well pretty consistently, week by week create something new. This podcast has forced me to strain my creative muscles over and over again. Happy anniversary to me.

Also this week, Mel Brooks was trending last week and that terrified me, the first crash by an autonomous car that is NOT autonomous (not even close), SnapChat went down for an hour creating a tremor in the force, and other stuff.

TRJE 343: Rank, Title, Status

This week titles and degrees, brain-eaters, ethics of cars, vaping talents, and more, on this weeks episode of The Regis Jack Experience.

People who hold a rank, title, or special status feel they are better then the people who don’t. I know your saying that you have a degree/title, but don’t think that way. But really? Think about it. Trust me, you do. But that just means you recognize the hard work you put into archiving that title. Don’t be creeped out. It’s ok. Unless you call yourself a Prophet — you my friend, are an idiot.

Also this week, brain-eating amoeba’s, I go on (yet again) on the ethics of auto drive cards (and how they won’t need them), a guy who can suck and blow has talent, and other stuff.

“In many religions, God (or whatever name the ultimate good goes by) only accepts certain people and demeans others. Those Gods judge you by race, gender, sexuality, whatever (the list varies by religion). I find this very disturbing. But in these same religions, Lucifer (or whatever name the ultimate evil goes by) accepts everyone, regardless of race, gender, sexuality — regardless of anything. I also find this very disturbing.” – The Distracted Philosopher

TRJE 342: Do You Hear Voices?

This week YOUR perception is YOUR reality, “never nude” Link, Microsoft weed, and more, on this weeks episode of The Regis Jack Experience.

I really wanted to avoid talking about rapists, terrorists, Orlando, or anything else that’s been saturating news feeds recently — so I did — mostly.

When you perceive the world around you differently than others you are branded as having hallucinations (visual, audio, any of your senses). But don’t worry, it’s actually normal. Hallucination is just another word for saying you perceive something that it not shared by others. This doesn’t mean it’s wrong or that you are crazy. Maybe your brain is tuned into a frequency that others can’t get. What’s important is that what you perceive is your reality. Also, don’t tell others you see or hear things they do not, you’ll be burned at the stake or beaten with rocks and sticks. It seems people are terrified that you perceive something they don’t and it must be the work of the devil or God — in this case both are equally terrifying.

Also this week, Nintendo announced Link (from the Legend of Zelda Games) is a “never nude” (I didn’t realize that was in question); some lonely unmarried guy with too much time on his hands juices McDonald’s burgers and fries (why oh why did this seem like a good idea); the Charlotte observer uses a headline that sounds like it may be a positive story or horrible rape tragedy (I couldn’t tell); a transgendered woman takes a camera crew in the bathroom (which seems a bit odd to me because I only bring them in the shower); Microsoft add weed to their cloud (sort of); is it just me or does every picture of Kayne look like he is crapping his pants?; and other stuff.
