In a recent episode of the show on football, he claims playoffs don't prove anything because the team with the best record rarely wins the championship. He mentions luck being a big part which I agree with and agree it can be seen as just a 3 hour coin flip, but the best record argument is very weak. Many factors influence a regular season record which don't help in a playoff. As they say offense wins games and defense wins championships. I'll have to question everything about that show on every subject much more now.

Me and my GF LOVE that show and we watched that episode. It's entertaining and usually leaves you wanting more. I like the fast pace of the show, it's never boring. I found the sports drink part of the FB Episode fascinating.

The one on tipping is good to.

I really liked/disliked the flushable wipes segment. To hear how they have become popular, yet not really flushable and cities get stuck with million dollar sewer fixes.

Did you think the best record argument was weak?

Unfortunately I missed a chunk of that because I got a phone call. Unfortunately my GF is now telling me there no reason for me to watch football anymore since it's all luck and random who actually wins(Apparently he implied something like that , but I think she misrepresented it to razz me). I told her if that's the case, just go bet the dog on the money line every time and she will have more money than God.

Obviously she's joking about all of it, but who knows what others are thinking. She likes watching a few big games a year including the SB, especially when I have a significant amount riding on it, but that's about all she can handle. She rolls her eyes at all the fake chicks pretending to like and know FB(Lots of female bartenders and cocktail waitresses in LV tend to do that, she worked as a cocktail waitresses for a about a year and a half, she didn't like it)

I thought the same thing so I YouTubed it. I couldn't handle more than a couple minutes of it. It's a whole lot of "love the blue sky? Well it isn't actually blue. It's actually your retinas interacting with blah blah blah." I just ruined Adam.

100% risk of ruin

The show or whatever of "Adam ruins everything" is entirely awful. I've seen plenty of their episodes or shows or whatever you call it -- they've all been awful. A lot of it is based on opinion.

It's similar to something like -- let's say someone, Stacey, in California is driving under the influence.....she changes the radio station and gets pulled over for swerving and driving under the influence......now "Adam ruins everything" will say "it's illegal to change the radio station while driving in California, that's exactly what happened to Stacey and she got arrested and went to jail and lost her license!"

Craps is entirely random, does that mean we should just bet on a 2 or 12 every throw and end up with more money than God? Random does not mean equal. By understanding this it could possibly give you an even better experience watching the game. And most certainly a lot more money betting on it.

Well, if they already did a show on flushable wipes, do they need one on craps?
