Question call March

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Today I'm digging back in the box to bring up my favorite topic which is question call. 

It is where people send questions in for me to answer them on the air. Some of the questions are from blue waffle 9969, Kim from QC Indie, Sports Brew as well as bullhorn.fm.

Enjoy the questions but enjoy the answers because you'll only be able to find these answers and questions on this show. 

It's about that time. You guys have been waiting for your RSS Feed to light up to get notified that tangents with toby has released a new episode. In the time has come in the time is now. Good day, everybody, welcome to another wonderful episode. This episode that I'm going to be doing has been a few weeks in the works, but I personally think it is going to be one of the great shows, a show that I haven't done in a long time, like literally a long time. So I decided let's do it, and I think from now on I might actually do question call once a month. That is right, question called is back. It was right around the corner, just when polk it's ugly head out, but today, this week, you have officially gotten question call on tangents with toby. All right, my name is toby, the guest host. I'm not the guest those but I'm the host of the show. So sit down, relax, crab your coffee, let's kind of get on with the show. We have a bunch of questions that have been sent in. First Up, I would like to shout out to the people who actually sent these questions in massive praise and dedication that you did to actually message me on Facebook, instagram, in twitter, and I even got a few anonymous I don't know why. They sent a moneys. You can get full credit for your question. If you have a podcast, tell me who you are, what your show is, with a domain or something, and I will plug it. First Up, blue waffles. Nine Thousan nine hundred and sixty nine. Don't ask great guy. That's his story. Twitter handled and if you have a chance to follow anybody, go follow him. His is kind of edgy, it's kind of a fun edge. It's weird. Anyway. He sent in a few which I'm going to read. Number one, why is it frowned upon drinking at nine am? All right, first of all, one of the reasons why it's frowned upon at drinking at nine am is because people are still waking up, still going and driving to work or you can dropping your kids off. That's the reason. That's the reason why you wait till ten o'clock. Everybody's off the streets. You're off the street, you could go do your shopping, get your beer, get your wine, everything like that. So...

...make sure you start at ten, not nine and plus. Besides, that extra hour asleep or that extra hour of eating will better your day, just for a long shot. Hell, just think of it this way. You start at ten, you're going to be power drinking. When you power drink, you get drunk faster. When? When? In both worlds, which they number two? Why do people hate the taste of grease on their pizza? Everywhere I see pizza grabbing your people grabbing fig Dean Napkins and gabbing them on the pizzas. All Right, I thought about this one and you know, if you like Greasy Pizza, oh that's fine, but there has to be a limit on how much grease is on a pizza. I understand if you have a lot of cheese, are going to get a lot of Gurks, if you're going to have a lot of meat, you're going to have a lot of or Greeks. All right, but it's to the point where you should be asking how much is too much. If you can take your pizza out of the box, move it off to the side, all right, just hear me out, and you can look through the bottom of the box like window. Way Too much. Greats. If they're dabbing the pizza with Napkins just to pick up the grease. That is too much grease. So there's in reality there is a limit for Greece and you should not drink. Sorry, I just looked at you guy. Your next your next question. But a grease to crust ratio has to be more crust the grease. If you can find that one pizza where you can drive with the piece of pizza in your hand eating it, but no Napkins, that's best pizza. Don't get me wrong, extra cheese, it's brilliant, but just relax and no, do not get extra grease a pizza. All right. Next up Kim from QC and need, the guy who given me this idea. Question called QC and the e. see what they did? QC Cars, Goll...

...rain anyway. So Kim, he sent into. The first one was what's your favorite ice cream? All right, the favorite ice cream, it comes in two things. My favorite, I do have to say, and I'm slowly starting to get back into it, is tiger, Tiger Orange and black liquorice is once you get a little bit more black liquorice in than the orange home I got. It is to tie form. I could eat a pint to myself because it's just that damn good, and you're thinking yourself, all right, what do you mean? You're finally getting back into it. All right, in two thousand and eleven, when the flood hit, I had a fridge full of food, including a brand new container of Tiger Tiger ice cream. The girlfriend's son, him and I were going in the trailer. Were clean, we're clean and work cleaning. Some of course will opens up the freezer and it's like, dude, don't go in there, that's going to be absolutely disgusted. You know, you got ice cream lifted up. My Tiger Tiger ice cream grew a green coat over top of it and it almost took me ten plus years before I started eating it. But it is absolutely delicious. Oh my God. Oh, anyway, the second choice, if there was no tiger tiger, it would have to be the Cherry Garcia ice cream from Ben and Jerry's, just the fact that it has like real full chunks of Cherry in its right. Next, well, would you make this corner so asses Kim also sent in a question. Can you believe it's not butter? All right, when it comes to this particular one, butter margarine, I don't know which is which. I don't use it. The only time that I use it is in craft dinner. That's it. Baking if I bake stuff, but otherwise I could care less. The only reason why I do pick I can't believe it's not butter, is because it's a brand name that I know other than parquet. But yeah, I don't know the difference between butter and margin. To me it's all the same, taste,...

...all the same. I don't use them. Anybody who does use them for evil, just like evil pills. The for example, I've seen people put peanut butter on a wait, back that up. I've seen people put margin or butter on a sandwich with peanut butter with jam. Disgusting. She's with no, I understand putting it on me, but NOPE, no, not peanut butter and jam. Not just peanut butter, not just you. You hurt my feelings. Dab You, Adrian, all right, Did dan't Dan? Dan, Dan, Dan. All right, Greece Valley Radio, MOM boy, molly, hey man, it's been a while. I miss you. What's been going on? This question? He has said has been absolutely insane. He says the farthest you've ever driven in one goal or your longest road trip. All right, so this one has a I was it a little too part okay, you know, the more think about it, road trip. All right, let's go with the road trip. Okay. So it was probably two thousand and one. Maybe, Adam, let's say two thousand one, right, was it two thousand is after that. So two thousand and one. Soft out. It was after the blizzard. Yeah, two thousand and one. My Buddy Dale calls me up and goes you want to go on a road trip? It's like, well, I'm broke. He goes, I got you covered. It's like Oh okay. It's like what's the road trip? It was basically we're going to be going from here to northern Alberta back home. He's like yeah, sure, whatever. So him, his girlfriend and her friend at the time pick me up in waiver. We went waiver to Regina to Move Sha Swift Current Brooks Alberta, stayed overnight, went from Brooks to Calgary, red dear Edmonton, drove like half an hour north of Edmonton, stayed up there for the night. Then we decided we were just going to head straight back. So then we went Edmonton, North Battleford, Saskatoon, Regina Waiver. That has to so be...

...an episode. Oh my God. Yes, and for that that was almost like a three day journey it that would have been about nine. That would have been about sixteen. That was probably here. Hang on, I'm going to find the answer for you in this one, with a little bit of calculations, a little bit of memory loss remaining. We traveled right around twenty two hours round trip, with all the stays of from wabor into Calgary, Calgary Tedan tend ever to Twab it is roughly twelve or twenty two hours, and that was one of the longest trips, broad trips, I have ever taken that I remember. So there's your answer, dude, and you just got me an idea of the trip or of the next episode in the future for story time, and it's going to be quite interesting. Sports Brew podcast. Go check them out if you like sports, you want to talk sports. They are the guy that talk to him. All right, so justin sent a message. He goes do what's your opinion on Lebron James versus like a Jordan, who's the Gokate with me? Play and simple. It's going to be Michael Jordan, just playing simple in the whole entire Damdis when you go and you compared the two, people are going to say Lebron the goat, just hands down. That's it. Look at the stats and you know there's more to the stats than considering somebody who is the goat. If you go, you take a look at back in the day compared to light today. It can even do that with like, for example, who's better goal scorer, wing Gretzky or well, Vatican. It's kind of like that. It's all generational. When it comes to who do you think it's a goat? Me, personally, I think it's Michael Jordan. The amount of things he hasn't done in his career on the court and off the court has been absolutely insane. You can go compare the two on court off court. The one thing I really really hate when it comes to the NBA it's all about averages. You could have for three games with Michael Jordan that could equal like...

...say, game one, game two, game three. All was thirty three, thirty three, thirty three points. So of course he averaged thirty three points a game. But Lebron James, he could have an up in down season, like massive up again. He could he could have a forty game, you know, forty point game, a thirty point game and a twenty point game and all of a sudden it averages out to say, thirty three points, and people are going to look at that and say, well, see, they're the exact same. They've average stuff. There are there averages existing like that when they do that. Just to sum it up, I don't want to get into this because Lebron James really boils my blood and they absolutely hate it. And yes, he makes out much of impact on me and basketball. He's I don't like him. He just his attitude so big it's amazing and it even can fit on the court. But if you go an you take a look at the two, Lebron James came in as a number one rat pick. They expected him to be the best, which, you know, the height that he had to live up to. It was there and he's been, you know, living up to that height, just plain and simple. Where if you go and you take a look at my Michael Jordan, he was never hyped like Doo Doo Doo, dooo, Doo Doo Doo Doo. He was okay, he was hyped, but if Michael Jordan was good is that he was good. The why did Michael Jordan go thirtle for all that needs to make you realize people didn't see Michael Jack Michael Jordan to be the top. But at the same time, if you go and you take a look a who was in that draftly it was insane. Okay, a chimawahwe he went number one. Sam Moowie, never heard of...

...him. He went number two. Of them was Michael Jordan. All right, Jordan came out of that draft just absolutely a bomb, like just blew everything up. As he played, everybody wanted to be like Mike, Plain the simple. They wanted to slam dunk like Mike, they wanted the shoes like Mike. They even made a movie like Mike. Everybody wanted to be Michael Jordan. The only people who want to be like lebrons, Lebron, are the people who are going down to Arizona because they travel like Labron. But I'm all right or right, I admit that was a horrible joke. That's kind of funny. Last One, Bull Horn Underscore FM on twitter said which podcaster is the goat? I'm you know, everybody has her own opinion. They could say Joe Rogan's the gold piece of what he's done for podcasting, or he's one of the most popular guys ran. Well, me personally, it's going to be Jim Mellard from the Melody Report. The guys been podcasting as long as I have, maybe a little bit longer. He's had ups, he's had downs, he keeps trudge and he's alive every single Tuesdays with guests across the board like Dave schrader and even Jesse Vent Tura, yes, the wrestler, Jesse Ventur, the governor, Jesse Ventura, yes, him, he they have been on the melder part with Jim Ellen. If you can't be any more goat than that. Jim Doesn't give up. He is a guy who not only has a great show but a huge heart just in general. Like when I was in the hospital years ago, a few years ago, actually I think many years ago, because you know, it is a view to preod years ago and grabbling, Jim would message me every day. How are you doing? What is up? Any updates on your health, etc ecetera. Jim Is the goat. Great Show, great person, great heart. He plugs any chance you get. He plugs. He needs respect just because he's that damn good. Just plays Jim melland from the...

...real mallard report. Is the goat of podcasting. I'm not going to lie. That's what it is. That's how it's going to be. Anyway. This show's actually got longer than I expected.
