    In the educational institutes, many steps should be taken to stop bullying because it affects the life of the students very much. Sometimes it has a strong impact forever and sometimes the students try to get rid of such an insult by suicides.

I LOVE your podcasts, keep up the good work because i'm getting smarter every week!

Great podcast as always, just querying the lack of an apostrophe in 'Brainiacs Book Club' I reckon there should be, because it is the book club of the Brainiacs.
Sorry, I'm the kind of teen that goes around with a red pen and a piece of chalk for such an occasion that there is a missing or additional apostrophe.

Colin is back. Get ready to hear him comment on everything when no one asked him to.... : /

June 6, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterEddie

I agree, Eddie. It gets frustrating listening to him say, "Ohhhh yeah (repeats answer as soon as it's said)."

Awesome episode overall! I loved the theme, too. For some reason, I find myself wanting — to an irrational degree — there to be an episode with the theme "Good Job, Brian!"

Also, another "guys, I live in Japan and speak Japanese, and could probably out-Chris Chris on a lot of this stuff" point: "Studio Ghibli" is pronounced with a soft G ("jibbly") much like how "Pocky" is pronounced "pokey" instead of like it rhymed with "hockey." So yeah, there's your stuffy and self-important Well Actually for the week ^^

Aaaaaaaand leave it to Colin to take the literal route with 'Gulliver's Travels' just to show how much he knows. Lilliputians couldn't exist in our environment? Shock! Gasp! You don't say!

Yikes, commenting for the first time and never thought GJB had such whiney fans. Good show as ever guys, particularly enjoyed the segment about the dog breeds! Keep up the great work.

I'M IN LOVE WITH YOUR SHOW. Very inspiring!

Matt -- agreed.

Have you ever tried mini-bowling?

Hey Brainiacs! Will you please post a list of the books that you suggested this week?!
