    Awww. Mucho strokes to the poor cursing Minx. :\

    Minx, the podcast file is your “raw” voiceover–no sound bumpers or audio comments are included.

    That said, it’s a great episode. 🙂

  3. I’m so embarrassed. I wrote the Minx and told her that the actual figure is more like 1 single poly person per 49646km² (taking into account the actual land-area of the planet and not being out by a factor of 10000 helps) but she obviously didn’t see my email.
    Never do maths at 2am.

  4. Well, it’s Friday 13th, isn’t it? 😉 Something has to go wrong 😉

  5. Um… yeah. This was a Friday the 13th joke. Yeah… YEAH! That’s it! Ha, ha ha!

  6. FWB = Friends With Benefits
