Molehill Mountain Episode 79 – All About the Kugel


Swatting got someone killed last week.  It’s an unpleasant topic and one we spend the first part of the show yammering about anything and everything to avoid it.  But, as former GamePolitics writers, we felt we needed to discuss it.

46:00 – Gamers kill someone via swatting

1:13:08 – Copyright extensions keep hundreds of games from entering the public domain this year

Molehill Mountain streams live at 7p PST every Saturday night on RandomTower!

8:57 PMMixtape TroyUp to 5 years prison, 28 months community service, $100k fine.

9:00 PMGasKanOnFireThis why dont go to whichita anymore.

9:02 PMmatthew wilsonraise the standerd swat should never be first to the scene, and normal cops can only carry a tasser gun

9:02 PMA Leafhe should be locked up for life imo

9:02 PMA Leafbased on his twitter he has 0 remorse for what he has done, and he has done exactly this without a fatality seemingly many times before and bragged about it publicly.

9:02 PMMixtape Troy@matthew wilson with the current administration, no chance in hell

9:06 PMmatthew wilsonI stand by what I said

9:07 PMMixtape TroyThis topic doesn’t fit my expectations of a podcast ironically titled Molehill Mountain.

9:10 PMMixtape TroySomething something “intent to cause harm” kind of felony

9:16 PMTrey HolmesYAAAY Copyright

9:17 PMMixtape TroyYoutube has a Youtube problem.

9:18 PMScottyJayManTrump has the copyright to the term “Orange”

9:26 PMMixtape TroySo if these were public domain, what does it mean?

9:31 PMScottyJayManThe Platinum Games Transformers Game was removed from Steam, Xbox and ps store.

9:35 PMScottyJayManWas that Princess of Mars comic the one where everyone was naked?

9:36 PMAndrew EisenCan’t say for sure but everyone’s naked in the books so I would assume it’s the same for the comic.

9:37 PMGasKanOnFirei think the closest game in pd is a ds game that was entsngled is a lawsuit, so the code is in evidence which in turn can be got by anyone. I could be wrong 😉
