    I just finished listening to Adam’s segment on bullying. It was really well done. Thanks for the great in-depth research, Adam. I like how Adam broke out of his groove to talk about something that wasn’t pop culture related 🙂

  2. After listening to Elan’s excellent discussion of the shroud of Turin, I had to emulate Adam and attempt the pose myself.
    I’ve long known that arms are a bit longer than is typical, so you might find it interesting to know that I found that I can, in fact, just barely cover my “junk” with my hands while keeping my shoulders flat on the floor, although I did, however, have to lift my elbows a little in order to do so.
    Worst mutant superpower ever.
