first off, if you have not heard of these guys you are missing out.

secondly, does anybody know how i can download the old videos/audio clips from the archive for free. i can subscribe for free to their itunes podcast, but that only keeps so many episodes on hand, i need some sort of video downloader and i can't find a free one anywhere. any suggestions??

He's serious. Both he and I dislike the Onion. It's the most ridiculous thing I've ever laid eyes upon.

i third that. occasionally you'll run across completely made-for-lulz BS, but most of the time its just a bunch of crap that turns out to be...well, im not sure how to describe it. i remember reading one about the military that was so BS (and you could tell they were tying to be serious) that i couldnt go back to that site.

I just can't support journalism that just uses rampant speculation to support it's news articles. I might as well read the National enquirer. I need real evidence.
