This Random Show episode was an experiment via Google Hangout. The show starts around 11:00 if you want to skip the preamble and dumb-assery.
Here are just two of many, many links mentioned in the show:
Jacked – The Outlaw Story of Grand Theft Auto

For someone who watched this after it was recorded, I found it really hard to understand some of the dialogue because of the sound quality limitations. I would imagine Hangouts are cool for the Q & A portion, but could you do a separate recording to put up after it is no longer live so that we can understand your slightly inebriated words?
Hey guys, I love the show but the sound was not good. It was like if you were inside a very small room.
English is not my first language and some parts were hard to understand because of the sound.
Thanks for keeping us updated.
I really loved this episode. The Google hangout format is an interesting experiment. Whatever gets more episodes out faster, I’m cool with it 🙂
I love the random show but the video and audio quality of this episode is terrible. Please go back to filming how it was before. I missed so much information, it was lucky somebody summarised it in the comments.
Quality’s pretty bad, but the content is awesome however… Wish you guys would make RANDOM at least a monthly thing 🙁
Couldn’t get the name of the “lamborghini” of smart drugs. Anyone?
A great smart supplement is Flavay Plus!!! Check it out!!!
Definitely an interesting read and concept. I’ve been looking into
various ways of cognitive enhancement and had come across nootropics for
the first time in 2012 when I first tried Piracetam, since then I have
created a nice “nootropic stack” to help assist in various memory and
thought training exercises. There is plenty of information regarding
nootropics and there is a downloadable PDF at http://www.smartdrugsforthought.com/piracetam-research/ that covers all of the Racetam nootropic chemical class.
What do you think about Onnit’s Earth Grown Powerfood, compared to Athletic Greens?
I always love the shows, thanks for posting. Question – the link to forskolin jumps to Relora. Is this intentional, or would you recommend forskolin (if you took them…) If you recommended forskolin, what mg dose? Thanks!
Tim sent out a 5 bullet friday with an awesome tip that mentioned how L-Lysine (amino acid) can help to metabolize ethanol. I’ve found that it works incredibly!! Now before I drink any alcohol I take about 1 to 1.5 g of Lysine and I’m wondering how does it actually breakdown ethanol???? Does anyone know if this is a healthy alternative to hangovers??
