The guys take a minute to reminisce about good times in Vegas, including the very memorable claw ride thing at the Stratosphere from Diggnation episode #6.
Forget silly things like human anatomy and the laws of physics. When it comes to Photoshop, reality needn’t apply – just clone, rotate, skew, blur and hope nobody notices. From missing limbs to outrageously overzealous retouching, an incredible number of Photoshop screw-ups have graced magazine covers, product packaging and store displays. Please, graphic designers... pay attention to the little details. Extra/missing limbs are not good.

Just wait… let them explain. Maybe. In an effort to curtail kiddy porn and simulated kiddy porn, the Aussie government imposed censorship restrictions on adult films with flat chested gals and female ejaculation. That's rough, according to Kevin.

Hitler had a 25 cigarette a day habit. He realized that it's bad and messing up his health, so he put a ban on cigarettes for Nazis. Yes, Nazis are bad and we love shooting them in video games, but they are the ones that started the public anti-smoking stance. So, if history teaches us anything, it's that it's way harder to pick out the good guys from the bad guys than the movies would lead us to believe. In fact, some of history's most face-blastingly savage regimes came up with some shockingly progressive innovations in health, human rights and, well, everything else.
