How did my trivia tie into or obscurely link to the episode?

Heroes of land, sea and air is a 4X game
X is 10 in Roman numerals
4X is therefor 4 x 10 which is 40
And The trivia was about Robb turning 40

Also, while listening to the episode, I kept waiting for someone to mention something about "baggies", since Robb and Patrick got in a little argument about things becoming "saggy" vs "baggy" and Robb insisted that he did in fact mean baggier, not saggier.

The Trivia is about 20 being the new 40.

HoLAS feels like it takes 20 years to play, and Robb will be complaining about that fireball for 40 years.

Robb discussed certain changes that happen as you mature - then the Pegs discussed changes that have happened to the podcast as it matured. One example Robb mentioned had to do with ears - and the Pegs are using their ears to listen and address feedback about the changes to BPPP.

Huh. I took this a different way. I thought the connection about being 40 is to Space Base and the fact that you need 40 victory points to bring the end of the game (although not necessarily win.) Having said that, the 4X concept mentioned above is pretty sound,

BTW, we got to play a preview of Space Base and everyone we have played it with has had a great time.

This is 40, stared Lesilie Mann, who was in the 40 year old virgin with Steve Carell who was in Crazy Stupid love with Kevin Bacon who was in Hero at Large!

Phew I did it! That's how you play right?

The trivia focused on the fact that everyone is getting older which has been exasperated by the play sessions of the review game hero's of land, air, and sea, which seemed to have taken years to play each game.

The trivia was talking about changes you encounter as you grow older, which addresses their reply to the issue that people presented about the show being different than it was when it first started. As the show grows older, it changes. It may not be the exact same as it was when younger but that doesnt mean it's a bad thing. It just means that it is growing and become different. Right, Pegheads?

The Trivia was all about 40 being the new twenty, and all the wonderful things your body experiences as you go past that milestone.

Heroes of Land, Air and Sea abbreviates to HoLAaS
Hola is spanish for Hello
Hello was recently a huge hit for the singer Adele
Adèle Exarchopoulos was the youngest person in the history of the Cannes festival to be awarded the Palme d'Or
Palme d'Or translates in to English as Golden Palm
The Golden Palm Resort is a Holiday Park in Skegness (in the UK)
Skegness is the place where the Wash Incident took place in 1996
Wash is the nickname of the pilot of the Serenity, played by Alan Tudyk
Alan Tudyk voiced K-2SO in Rogue One, the prequel to Star Wars: A New Hope
Star Wars: A New Hope was released May 25th 1977 making SWANH 40 years old!

Honestly, this trivia is getting silly now.

You guys mentioned Rob Daviau who is one of the designers of Betrayal at House on the Hill. When you turn 40 it is said you are over the hill and as Rob so beautifully described your body begins to betray you.

Good job, I have been working on something similar:

Here is my creative entry, and I think I can link all of Season 2’s trivia!

Episode 121s trivia is about being 40
40 is the highest number ever counted to on Sesame Street
A regular character on Sesame Street was Kermit the Frog
Kermit the Frog appeared alongside Ozzy Osborne at the Golden Jubilee for Queen Elizabeth II in 2002, where the two of them posed for a press photo with Ozzy pretending to bite Kermit’s head.
Ozzy Osbourne bit the head off a bat on stage in Des Moines, Iowa, on 20 January 1982
20 January is the day of the presidential inauguration (episode 120 trivia)
Barny the Dinosaur was part of Bill Clinton’s inauguration parade
Dinosaurs are the theme of Dinosaur Island – obviously! (episode 120 trivia)
Dinosaur Island draws its inspiration from Jurassic Park
Jurassic Park was written by Michael Crichton
Michael Crichton also wrote Rising Sun (episode 119 trivia)
House of the Rising Sun was a song by the Animals
Among the different names for groups of animals (episode 119 trivia), you find that a group of fish is a shoal
Shoal is anagram of HOLSA
HOLSA is an abbreviation of Heroes of Land, Air & Sea

So close, but HOLSA would be Heroes of Land, Sea and Air!

If Rob is turning forty, then that means he was born in 1978(?). That's the same year that the musical Grease came out. One of the songs in Grease is "Those Magic Changes". Rob described some of those magic changes of getting older. Also, Christina is beginning to change in her attitude toward magic and wizards.

4X is therefor 4 x 10 which is 40
And The trivia was about Robb turning 40

Yep Tom nailed it, and here I thought I was being sneaky on this one...Tom gets his second point.

also Josh was picking the "creative" point this episode and he chose...

In episode 122 Robb says that XXXX is the roman numeral for 40. XL is the roman numeral for 40 not XXXX.

I can see where 4X is 4 times X or 4 times 10 for 40 but not XXXX is the roman numeral for 40 as he states at the beginning of episode 122.

If I had a dollar for everyone who has told me this since this episode, I would have XL dollars.

Robb, in your defense, "XXXX" is not historically inaccurate. Representing 40 as "XL" is using "subtractive notation," which was a later development, only gaining popularity in the 13th century (Wikipedia cites James Stuart Tanton, Encyclopédia of Mathematics, p.450, Infobase Publishing, 30 Jun 2005, accessed on Google Books 2012-08-08).

Subtractive notation is typical of modern usage, but was never a universal convention.

I should have specified, I am referring to Roman Numerals also. It is not incorrect to say "XXXX is Roman Numerals for 40." You are right, they are wrong. cool
