Ep.37 – Single’s Survival Guide: Staying Afloat in the Sea of Sadness


Alpha Counter’s Sean Ryan braves “Snowmaggedon” to join me for this episode where we record against the odds and before the power goes out. We’re national heroes, really.

We discuss surviving being single – especially during this romantic time of year, reveal our ignorance about Americanized Mexican Holidays, and discuss some of the overlooked benefits to being single.

There’s a new segment called, “You Ain’t Gonna Believe This Shit – the Kelley Hightower Story,” where I discuss the weird shit that happens to me because of reasons – often it’ll be about dating.

We discuss the dangers of going too far with virtual relationships, I reveal my embarrassing affair with an AppleCareBot, and when the tables get flipped this episode, they’re all sports-related.

So, pull your drowning pony out of that sinking Swamp of Sadness, and ride off into this Neverending Story of dating!*

*See what I did there? You’re welcome.

  1. Snowmageddon was a blast. There’s a reason I bought a 4wd Jeep, and stuff like this is it.

    Since my yard and dirt road was covered in a 1/4″ sheet of ice, I had to use 4H to get enough traction to actually pull out of the yard. Working in a medical facility means I actually have to get out and drive in that stuff.

    Also, if you like goat Kelley, try Curry Goat. A friend of mine bought me a plate after I helped him move one time, and it ignited a bit of an addiction to Jamacian food. Seriously, sofa king good.

  2. Snowmageddon was only an issue for me because no one knows how to drive in snow worth shit.

    Also, Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of continued mexican inedpendance, specifically, their defeat of the french in Puebla during the French occupation.

    Sean, Her and the Waifu phenomenon are symptomatic of a deeper issue, IMO, which in Japan is the complete destruction of the ego of both men and woman by Japanese society. It’s not just men and not just otaku not going out and finding someone to be with. They’re just the ones with weird ass secondary options.

What say you?
