First, Elan looks into the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome epidemic of the 90’s and whether or not computer use is in fact a cause of the ailment. Next, Pat leads a game of Name That, with all of the questions being number-based. Darren closes out the show by ranting about another thing that’s bugging him on Facebook.
