TOTP - Top Ten Things To Do In An Elevator

I'm pretty sure that this list has been doing the rounds on the internet in some shape or form, but the fantastic Sean from Chicago sent it to topofthepods@gmail.com and we read it out:-

  • 10 - Stand silent and motionless in the corner, facing the wall, without getting off.
  • 9 - Say 'Ding!' at each floor.
  • 8 - Smack your forehead and say "Shut up, dammit, all of you just shut UP!"
  • 7 - Bring a chair and desk along and ask if they appointment.
  • 6 - Actually use the elevator normally.
  • 5 - When arriving at your floor, grunt and strain to yank the doors open, then act embarrassed when they open by themselves.
  • 4 - Announce in a quiet voice: "I must find a more suitable host body."
  • 3 - Break wind and blame it on the person next to you.
  • 2 - Lean against the doors, fall out when the doors open, then moan in pain.
  • 1 - Make explosion noises when anyone presses a button.

Sorry to Daniel from Greece who sent us a similar list in a different order, we'll do one of the other lists you sent us. Rob mentioned a film starring Tony Jaa called 'Ong-Bak' - if you like martial arts movies then this is the business! We'd also like to thank Colin from http://www.podcastlaunchpad.com for writing a great review about us - if you'd like to add your 2 cents worth to the comments board there it would certainly help provide more ideas for first time listeners deciding if they want to subscribe or not.

We asked on today's show for your ideas for the "Top Ten Ways To Spend A Tenner" (a tenner is the average note that you'd expect to find in your wallet) - email the most imaginative thing to topofthepods@gmail.com and we'll do a show out of it soon.

Just got a iTrip 3 today, the new one with the LCD display. It's quite a lot better than the original. The display show the current frequency it's on, and there's a tuning knob on the side, so no software on your ipod is required.

You can also switch between stereo and mono, mono is usually clearer. It also tunes in almost instantly, unlike the original which takes about 5 seconds.

It seems to be a clearer signal as well.

Oh, don’t do the video podcast. I enjoy listening to the podcast while working at my desk. If you go about filming things and I watch them at work the environment could change for the worst... On top of that, most of the people out there are not yet switched over to a video ipod.

i think a vidcast would be great. do it on a seperate feed though as the daily source code video messed up the itunes feed for a bit.
