A cozy, tea-filled homecoming to Kevin's apartment in San Francisco, featuring strategies for increasing Twitter followers, and an invention that saves birds. Also, see our President's loaded Suburban, the controversial Britney Spears' If U Seek Amy, and Google's Gdrive!
1) Tim sends in a Photoshop image he created for Kevin. He writes, "Hey Kevin and Alex, in Episode #182, Kevin was talking about his own moving pirate mobile. I did some Photoshopping and here is the result." Be sure to watch the episode to see Tim's image!
2) Josh writes in for advice on asking out a really hot girl. He says, "Hey Prager, Hippie Glenn, Alex and Kevin. My name is Josh and I wanna ask out this really hot girl that I talk to all the time. And since I watch this show (which makes me a geek, haha jk), I don't know if I should. Should I ask her? She seems like she likes me and I know I like her (I freakin' like... masturbate over her Facebook pic like every day). And how do I ask her?I don't wanna just go up to her and say, 'Hey wanna go out with me?' Thanks, Josh."
