— Harland Williams, You Made It Weird podcast
- Kumail Nanjiani: If I'm driving from [LA] to San Francisco or someplace, I see a small town, and I'm like, 'Who are these fucking people who live here. Why are they living here?'
- Pete Holmes: If you ever drive from here to Vegas, you'll drive through, like-- you'll drive through the game Borderlands, basically. And you'll be like, 'What is this, the boss lives here?'
- Kumail: If I open this garbage can, a sniper rifle will be here.
- Pete: And cash.
- Kumail: Three dollars.
Apparently he’ll drop these into the conversation whenever he can. This is quickly becoming my new favorite podcast.
1. What kind of soap do you use?
2. Have you ever been in a fight?

- Anton: What if Lex Luthor is only evil because he's bald?
- Me: That's actually kind of correct. See, in the Pre-Crisis continuity, Lex Luthor and Superman were friends. Lex was a genius who wanted to invent things to help Superman. This is when they were teenagers, and Superman was "Superboy". Lex was doing an experiment, but it went wrong and there was a fire. In his haste to put out the fire, Superboy used his super breath and the fire caught Lex's hair. He went bald. He blamed Superman for causing his baldness and swore revenge. That's why he's evil. Now, you have to keep in mind that this was an origin written in 1960, and he's had numerous revisions since then, the first such being in 1986, when John Byrne revised the entire Superman universe and had Luthor be a evil genius corporate executive, and his baldness was just male pattern baldness. That version kind of stuck, but Luthor's been rich ever since, but various re-envisionings have had him retain his mad scientist background, even throwing in an accident that causes him to be bald, though not necessarily. The TV series Smallville is a good, popular example, though that established Luthor inheriting his wealth, whereas Byrne said he raised himself out of the slums of Metropolis. But yeah, originally, Luthor being bald was why he was evil.
- Anton: I was just making a joke but thanks for that.
