16:38 - So I grab a coffee at the same coffee shop every morning. This morning, when the barista took my change out of the register, he looked me dead in the eyes and put my change into the tip jar. I was flustered, and my response was to put an extra quarter into the tip jar before taking my coffee. I'm a little miffed in retrospect, but maybe it isn't a big deal? I mean, I was going to give my change as a tip anyway, so it shouldn't have mattered? Should I have done something different? Am I good? -- The Great Canadian Coin Count
How was hacking done before the internet existed?
Did people make their own internet?
Update: I heard computer hacking was being done in the 70s and 80s. I know the 'War Games' movie was fiction, but didn't it depict a true-to-life technique?
26:20 - I recently took a trip to visit my old college roommate in his new city, New York. His current friend group peppered me with questions about how he was in college, asking for additional details or explanation about some of his stories. A couple of tales about him caught my attention for an interesting reason - they happened to me. My old roommate has been using events from my life to regale his current friends. Is this something I need to address? Should I let it go, and just allow this Gilderoy Lockhart to profit from my experiences? Help me brothers! -- Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story

If someone owns a piece of land, do they own it all the way to the center of the earth?
49:42 - My girlfriend finds it strange that I prefer to drink directly from the tap rather than take out a glass to get a drink of water. I tell her that sometimes I just want a couple of sips of water, and that it's easier to drink right from the tap when I want than taking out a new glass and dirtying it with my mouth. She already said I can leave the glass out with the water I don't drink, for later, but I prefer not to have a dusty, room-temperature water later on. Am I the weird one for this? Thank you. -- Thirsty For Advice In New York City

Why doesn't the Grand Canyon have rides?
- “Shit's been whack before. Shit's sucked before. If you look at the grand span of history, shit's sucked a lot, a lot, a lot. And then there were good days after it. If you think back in your life, to moments that you've had-- I bet there are moments that you've had in your life that have sucked a lot, lot worse than whatever's happening in the world that sucks right now. You've had sucky days before and then after those days, you've had good days. And I want you to remember that no matter how crappy, and scary, and shitty and confusing things might be, things have seemed that way before. They've seemed that way before for millennia, and afterwards we still manage to create points of light that have illuminated those dark times. But for the moment, for the moment-- and that is all you can be in-- when you're scared about the world and you're scared about everything going around you, look at the moment that you're in, right now, right this second, and remind yourself that that is all you have. And right now maybe it's okay. Probably, things are alright. And you will get through this, the same as you've gotten through things before, the same as we as a people have gotten through things before. Shit sucks. It won't suck forever.”

The "stuff" that just happened Griffin refers to in the opening is probably the floods in West Virginia
