“Brad: Erin, um, why don't you tell us what you're drinking there?
Erin: I got some, uh, I got a big(?) can of Bud Light, and a glass of, uh, carrot juice. 100% pure orange carrot juice. [unintelligible]
Brad: That seems like that's pretty much the most godawful combination I can think of--
Erin: Wanna try some?
Brad: --I imagine both are ass by themselves.
Erin: [laughs] Well taken(?) together it's [unintelligible] fucking beautiful.
Brad: I believe Eric Case was the inspiration here, for the um, half the ass there.
Whitaker(?): Eric Case [unintelligible] mixed drinks, apparently.”

That's the first time I've transcribed a voice post, I think.

Whenever I see these I think of how you're building up a huge corpus of transcribed speech. I wonder if it'll ever become useful for training voice recognition software. The transcriptions are probably too low-quality, though.

Yeah, but think of all the bank for someone who figures out how to train a computer to transcribe drunken and/or depressed teenage speech patterns. (Only mildly redundant there)
