If I was falling from a plane, I'd prolly take my pants off and use them as a wind sock essentially. Force more volume of air into a restricted pant leg.

I believe that the live action Sauropod movie that was talked about is called Baby: Secret of the Lost Legend.

I dont know if this is/was a good episode. I had to stop because of soooooo much teeth sucking and lip smacking. I hope editing gets better throughout the podcasts or that the hosts learn how frequently they do this. too distracting- especially for a music topic!

That listener mail about ego death being impossible was frustrating to listen to. The guy had way to much of an opinion for something hes never done. It's like a person telling you that other planets dont exist but they've never looked through a telescope. Even people who have tried it and havnt experienced it just havnt used a powerful enough telescope to see the planet. The only impossibility is understanding Psychedelics without trying them. Ego death is a very profound experience where you basically forget who you are. You lose your individuality and feel an interconnectedness with the universe. you realise you're just another human and what sets you apart is actions, not race, gender, height, weight, etc.
