Turns out Aaron has been too busy playing street fighter and didn't have time to find a real vocab word. Although when he said it was the word I assumed it had a real meaning and wasn't just some gibberish that Ryu says. Jokes on me.
p.s. Everytime Aaron speaks now I assume he is doing so while attempting to devour his own hands.

Just got my certificate in the mail today for sponsoring this episode! So cool. If you haven't donated yet listeners, you should. My certificate was signed by the Prof. Blastoff folks, as well as the Sklars, Scott Aukerman, Patton Oswalt and more! Thanks again!
I really enjoyed this episode. I've had a fascination for strange dictators since reading the annual dictator rankings in Parade Magazine as a kid. (I'm a little ashamed to admit I read Parade.)
Also, I fully support the Neil deGrasse Tyson Twitter campaign. It'd be amazing to get him on the show!
