Thank you for making this available in multiple formats. Getting into the Kindle on my iPad could not have been easier, unless you came here and did it for me. I tossed in an extra buck just for making it that easy.. For iPad/iPhone users, just browse to http://wilwheatonbooks.com/ and click on the .mobi, it will ask you if you want to open it in Kindle.. Choose yes, and there it is. like magics. -Jason

It's not available for me to stream either (East coast USA).. Certainly Netflix isn't that Regional.

East coast, Ordered book the day orders went live (before the blog post).. Arrived yesterday. Wil, what is with the bizzare math in the first section? You used the speed of light instead of the distance from the sun.. or am I missing something? (or has this been covered). -Jason

Have you taken a look at lulu.com for on demand printing and shipping? There is NO overhead unless you want an ISBN number (which is $50-$100 from them) and comes out looking lime it came from a real publisher. They handle various sizes, soft and hard cover (with and without a jacket) I recently tested it with a 140 pages worth of short plays. full glossy soft cover. $7 + s/h handling. You can mark it up as much as you want although they do take a % of the markup. If you get a ISBN number there are ways you can get it on Amazon as well as brick and mortar shelves as well. It couldn't hurt to try one. cost ya under $15, and you can see what the process is like, as well as the finish product quality. -Jason

Wil, as a retired Improvist (3+ years 2 shows a week) I had those same exact thoughts. The game show skit was painful to watch.. Do you know who this is? No it isn't that it's this... and then it went NO WHERE... The last show of the second hour (All 4 Guests) was too much.. I couldn't finish watching it. I was a big fan of the British Who's line, but not so much of the American version. -Jason

RE: Babel Fish Puzzle.. I was a freshmen at college. My two roommates and I worked on it all evening/night and came up with nothing.. As I was walking to class the next day It hit me.. the solution. I ran back to my dorm room, and sure enough it was the junk mail. I never did make it to class that day. -Jason

My all time favorite audience moment.. Was during the Search for Spock" star trek movie (2?). They are on the genesis planet, looking for adolescent Spock. They are following little vulcan footprints in the snow.. and some dude at the back of the theater shouts out.. "I wanna be a dentist!!" -Jason

Better Link for the clownsweaters: http://nene.fotopic.net/c473036.html I wish I had one of those sweet babies to give as a gift this year. Also, the posted that said you should wear that to the WSOP next year was SPOT on. -Jason

As another father who does not share DNA with his son, I can totally relate. DNA does not make a father. I wonder if I can get my son into the prisoner tonight.. Of course He's only 19 months old.. If only the rovers had a catchy theme song as they bounced around! "Who's Number one?" "You.. Are.. number.. Six" "I am not a number! I am a free man!" -Jason
