  1. Why everyone is. Saying could have cared less, that means you cared more then you should have right? The original saying is I couldn’t care less which means, you really don’t care for it at all……….yaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrr I’m just being anal but yeah, maybe I’m right I dunno.nis it just cool to say it the other way now? But you read books, you know words more than I who doesnt read. Put me in my place or tell me how intelligent I am ….lol

  2. I’m enjoying some of your childhood memories, how do you remember so much? What is the definition of aspergers? Is that the same as ADHD ? I have a version of OCD called pure O. Anyways I’m hooked this is one of the best shows on here, your a perfect fit for the onsug universe.

  3. I am tempted to copy paste that intro outdo song and reverse it to find out what it is, but I won’t. Also I hope you never mention what it is because I wanna keep it a mystery 🙂

  6. Chad, thanks very much! I was just laughing as I was listening to your Chadcast episode yesterday where you were talking about your superpower of untoasting toasted bread. Also you offered up a wealth of information on this latest Overnightscape Central; I’m going to have to listen again because I missed some of it. I’ll seek out more of your shows to listen to soon. Catch ya around!

  7. Eddie… wow, I love all the comments! 😀 In order: 1) Can’t remember if I said “could care less” or “couldn’t care less,” but you’re correct about the meaning there. 2) A lot of those kindergarten stories have been repeated ad nauseum by my mom, and for some reason it was a very memorable year for me. First grade I can barely remember at all. Asberger’s is kind of a mild mild form of autism. The social aspect is a lot easier, but there is some need for order, making lists, etc. I suspect a lot more people have it than are ever diagnosed. I have generalized anxiety disorder, which wasn’t diagnosed properly until I was about 29. And thanks so much for the compliment! 3) Don’t worry, I won’t tell. It’s from a pretty obscure source, and speeded up considerably as well as turned backwards. Kind of a happy fluke, that one. 4) I didn’t mean that I thought it was a cliche to have the Beatles as your favorite band, just that, well, I’ve run into that attitude before from others. I’m planning to do an episode about the songs of the Beatles soon, probably episode #50 or 51. And yes, you’re right about my wife’s laugh. She holds nothing back when she laughs… especially in the movie theater when we saw The Muppets! 😀

    Take care!
