Time to Mess Up My Blogshares Rating
From airamericaradio.com:

On yesterday's show, we said that an anodized coating is the same as a Teflon coating. In fact, they are categorically dissimilar. Teflon is a material in and of itself. Anodization, by contrast, is a chemical process. To anodize an aluminum object, put the object in a bath of dilute sulfuric acid and charge it electrically. (The word "anodized" comes from the word "anode," the positively-charged pole of an electrical circuit.) A piece of aluminum that undergoes anodization is sealed in aluminum oxide, rendering it harder, more resistant to corrosion, and less porous than regular aluminum.

On Tuesday's show, I used the grammatical construction "aren't I." In fact, the correct formulation would have been "am I not."

On May 5, while discussing John Kerry's Vietnam record, we described Swift Boats as armed with 50 millimeter (5 centimeter bore) guns. These boats were actually armed with .50 caliber (1/2 inch bore) guns.

Thanks to all of the listeners who suggested boring corrections. If you have a boring correction about grammar, metric conversions, or today's boring correction, please post it below.
