Sorry, jugglers. I really blew it. Or maybe I didn't? You'll have to let me know. In this episode, I borrow deeply from my perceptions of juggler lore to explore when, exactly, we should attempt to juggle "all the things," as well as how we can reach our decision about adding another ball to our juggling routine.

This episode has it all: *your* takes on puzzles, Neighbor Watch, Part Two: A Trip Around the Block, a resolution to the Tent City Mystery, and some thoughts on Occam's Razor. Buckle up because the sass train is (probably) about to leave the station. Choo-choo.
