The boys think it's time for another history-oriented episode, and this time they're trying to decide who is worse between two relatively obscure dictators. Manuel Noriega or Augusto Pinochet?

Ben takes the side of Chile's Pinochet, while Ryan argues for Panama's Noriega, both highlighting the atrocities that these two have dealt out over the years. Nick, as this week's judge, tries to determine the worse of the two.

Discussion points include: Kevin Smith's "Jersey Girl," "accidental" plane crashes, exiles, drug smuggling, crony capitalism, secret police, state-sponsored terrorism, The CIA, the Panama Canal, the Iran Contra Scandal, and free helicopter rides.
