Why texting and chasing Tom Cruise on a high speed motorcycle don’t mix.

 

Welcome to the WILD WILD PODCAST #28

 Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to listen to Geek Outlaw and Spunky Destructor as they discuss Tom Cruise’s latest spy vs spy installment of Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation all the way until the end. (Yeah, it may be close to impossible, but it’s worth it for the post-music Easter-Egg.)

(WARNING: There are some MINOR spoilers within the Podcast!)

Thanks to the ingenuity of the human mind, there are far fewer mysteries in life that have proved impossible to solve.  This impossible mystery list includes: how a billionaire can afford to run for president but not hire a competent hair stylist, how millions harness the power of an advanced computer in their pocket but use it mainly to give themselves fake digital mustaches, and who decided it was a good idea to give Mindy Kaling her own semi-self-titled television series.

Maybe he wouldn’t be so grumpy if at some point he just went into a Supercuts… or bought one.

 

Maybe even more impossible than any of the above mentioned conundrums, is how Tom Cruise still manages to hang from military aircraft and dart through traffic at high speeds on powerful Ducati-esque motorbikes at over half-a-century in age. It’s one of the points Spunky Destructor and I hit on as we review Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, the fifth installment of the classic TV series turned blockbuster franchise.

“I said I wanted a VIEW of the wing…”

 

Obviously, the magic of Hollywood cameras and special effects provide Mr. Cruise with a large assist, but the feats are still impressive no matter how you feel about the 53-year-old actor’s penchant for volcanoes housing immortal spirits born of extraterrestrial life.

First they take away the free peanuts, now this?

 

Nevertheless, of all the inexplicable things mentioned above, the only truly impossible feat I’m aware of is how Spunky Destructor and I have yet to self-destruct after 28 mano-a-mano podcasts. Although, based on the fact that our audience is roughly the size of the Tampa Bay Rays fan base, one could argue otherwise.
