      I'd prolly say Trevor Noah or Aubrey Plaza. Both were great and it's always so fun to see people go all of the way! :)

    What a great Point about "Video games" being the only thing/Medium, that's actually better in Modern Form!, bc it's certainly not the case with Movies or Music!, whereas with Video games, you'll be hard pressed to Hear someone say, "Hey get GTA or COD off, & lets play PONG or SPACE INVADERS on Atari!, i feel the same way Mister...

                      I demand this show start interviewing politicians... and making them either tell the truth or shit flames the next week. I know none of them would take the challenge because they are all to a man and woman simply cardboard cut-outs of human beings. Oh and Kristin Bell calling her husband a fucking asshole.

                                            Want to visit a town like Kumal is talking about? Visit New Harmony, Indiana.

                                            Anyway when he was talking about the internet community evolving I felt that. Remember when memes were image macros?

                                            Also I want to know what is the common trait between those directors!

                                                                      How old you are and also whether you live through it or just look backwards after many years, like he apparently did.

And so I could observe more and more decent people disappearing from chat rooms and forums across a few years. Until I one day too didn't see the point any more either.
                                                                      But I still did a lot of stuff online. Until a few years ago, I realized that basically the whole online world is toxic. Like - I'm writing these comments here sort of like one used to write into a diary. I don't **really** expect a response or even just that someone will read it. Maybe here and there but overall, it's just to get thoughts out.

Real people, talking while eating spicy sauce on wings! Keep that spicy train going. Thank all of you that make this show happen!!!!
