#203 A Forceful Break

I had plenty of time to record my ODN tonight - both my Thursday raid teams cancelled for some reason. I guess I can't force them to raid if they don't want to.
NOTE: This will be the last ODN for 2015. See you in 2016!

#202 Trumpscream

I keep saying I try to avoid politics on ODN, but sometimes it just can't be avoided. I'm horrified as I watch Donald Trump move the Overton Window so far to the right that what once were extreme positions have now become "reasonable alternatives" for some to the insane positions he is taking. We should be better than this as a country. We've gone from FDR saying the only thing we have to fear is fear itself, to one of the main political parties relying almost solely on fear to garner votes. Okay, getting off my soapbox (for now).

#201 Church Coffee Separation

The "brew-haha" over the design of Starbucks' holiday cups just cried out for getting the ODN treatment. Religion can bring hope and joy to people, but sadly it is also one of the most divisive things known to man.

#200 To Serve Gnome

The first ODN was created in late October of 2009, and six years later we have finally reached episode 200. It seems only fitting that we return to our roots, and pay homage not only to ODN's creator, but also a classic Twilight Zone episode.

#199 A Chilling Suspicion

As speculation runs rampant over what Luke's role will be in the new movie, it made me wonder what Blizzard might do to return to its glory days of over ten million subscribers. Stay tuned for the "Wrath of Anduin"?

#198 Spicing Things Up

Fall arrives, and out comes pumpkin spice...well, everything! Even the potion makers in WoW are not immune.

#197 An Ill Wind Blows

I work with the forecasters at the National Hurricane Center, so I know dedicated they are to making as accurate a forecast as possible. But storms are very tricky things, and sometimes they decide not to behave as the forecasters predict. One thing that can pretty much be forecast all the time is that people will rush out at the last minute to stock up on milk, toilet paper, batteries, etc!
