As Dan hustles his way back to the studio, we (somehow) begin with Scott's hands-on of the $6,000 Kohler Numi toilet. Then, the conversation gets weird as we contemplate on what features would be included in our dream toilet that's worth dumping that kind of cash into. Blue jokes aside, we also debate Democrat Jesse Jackson Jr.'s argument to congress, on his belief, that theiPad is killing American jobs. Dan sheds some light on the self-publishing and distribution logistics of releasing an album (if you are so inclined to go indie and bank on those "royalty" checks). Finally, moreiPhone 5 rumors explored.
