The Sonic sequel needs an introductory scene where Sonic and Knuckles play tennis, then the movie fast forwards to the next day where they play table tennis, then the remaining hour and a half of the movie is them debating which activity burned more calories.  And because they're so busy arguing about that, Doctor Robotnik is able to take over the world.  The end.

CheapyD: Exercise Physiologist!


I perused a few research articles on the topic out of curiosity and shockingly not a ton of research has been done comparing the energy expenditure between tennis and table tennis, but what has been done backs up Shipwreck's "clickbait-y Google article."  Comparing to the heart rate of 140 that CheapyD posted (since that's much more widely reported), the average heart rate for competitive (meaning skilled but not elite) tennis players is 143-152 beats per minute.


The first couple seasons of Community were really good but I completely lost interest about half way through the series because the story lines were so ridiculous and not very interesting to me.  Wombat calling it one of the greatest sitcoms of all time is a bit of a stretch, in my opinion.

I had a similar experience to Wombat's trip to Target and them only having store brand pasta.  When we did our grocery shopping last weekend, the store had normal stock of basically everything except toilet paper and orange juice.  They were sold out of basically all of the major brands of OJ but had a huge supply of Donald Duck orange juice.  Yes, that is really a thing and it is the cheapest orange juice they sell.

Wombat during this episode: "I'm sure I'll finish season 2 (of Mindhunter)."


Cheapy: "I think you're going to enjoy the rest of the season."


Wombat on Twitter today: "Just finished ep.4 of season 2 of Mindhunter. I think I'm out."
Well done gentlemen, well done.
