All the NormalBoots team except for PeanutButterGamer ask each other questions at MAGFest 13. It involves a lot about talking about their dicks, calling Jon an asshole, and Greg answers every question with 'Jesus Christ'. They also mysteriously discover bottles of Gatorade appear in their hands.
Self Q&A section
Jon introduces everyone to the panel. Paul states that PBG couldn't make it. PBG's message to everyone is "Don't listen to anything Jon says", and Dom says that he is going to the Royal Rumble. Jared announces that they are going to make a Q&A panel for themselves, and will ask questions to each other anonymously.
They all have to write down questions for each other. Jared stalls for time by throwing Monster Hunter swag to everyone. They are pins from Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. Jared says that he can identify everyone by their on-screen font, but not by their handwriting. Paul doesn't know how to write a two-part question.

Q: Jon: Why are you such an asshole? (again!)
Q: Shane: Did you know that Josh's favorite animal is dog?
Jared wants a Did you know Josh episode.
Q: Satch: How does it feel to be way smarter than everyone ever?

Everyone else signs the lemon.

Jon plays along, and calls them very cute. Josh adds that they have their own tiny picks.
Q: Josh: I really need to know? I am ghost?
Everyone starts asking who let the ghost in, and they conclude that it is Austin.
The next card says to the audience, thank you for being here. Jon says that he wouldn't watch this!
Q: Jared: How are we going to kill 2 hours of this?
A: He thought this was a good idea, and he doesn't know.

Fan Q&A Session
They decide to get a regualr Q&A going now, and that this concept was fun.
Q: Jon: What was the deal with joining Channel Awesome before coming back to your own thing.
A: Jon was asked to join briefly but he realized that he didn't fit. PBG was too. He also asks Jon to go to bed.
Q: Can I have the lemon?
A: Jon feels like she deserves it. Jon asks her to run for it, but Jared just gives it to her. She throws it back to Jon, and he drops it.

Jared met Jirard and Greg two years ago at SGC when Jared was still at ScrewAttack. The first time all of them got together was MAGFest last year.
Q: Have you guys thought of getting a big space and doing a video together?

Q: Jon: How uncomfortable does the slash fiction make you feel?
A: Jared complains that there isn't any of him! Jared has to tell Jon what slash fiction is. Jon asks where he can get that. They want the emotional aspect out of it.
The next person wants Jon to say some words to his friend. Jared realizes that they are going to get their own slash fic with the Normal Boots dating Sim that is coming out. Jared can't wait for it.
The next person takes a stab at Josh for looking homeless.
Q: If all of you guys planning on continue to do let's plays particularly Jon?

Q: Satch: If you were a professor, what would the name of your class be?
Joke Answer: Sex Ed.
Q: Which of your panelists would fail?
A: Typography 101, and Jirard would fail because he always gets his margins wrong. Jirard says that he loves Satchell. Jirard paid Satchell to do all of their marketing, because he sucks at his margins.
Q: Have you guys ever given up on something?
A: Jared says yes. When the Wii U was coming out, he was going to make a video on it, but it wasn't very funny. He was also going to make a video about Spike. It wasn't very good.

The asker says Sleep Powder, Pound and Teleport. Jon thinks this is rape.
Q: Why did you stop posting your videos on Normal Boots ahead of YouTube?
A: They didn't like splitting the videos, and they are easier to find on YouTube. They prefer to have the videos on Normal Boots because it is more convenient. They don't have the servers for it. They may be doing some things for Normal Boots. They may be doing some podcasts for Normal Boots.

Jirard - Sonic looks like Sonic.
Greg - Knuckles's nips.
Jared returns with a Gatorade.
Q: What is your favorite game? If you saw The Interview, what did you think of it?

Jared - Favorite game - Final Fantasy VI.
Paul - he is glad they defeated terrorism.
The next question is about Austin, and they all make ghosty noises.

A: Jared knows what it is, and they hold hands. It's Duke Nukem with cars, and is awesome. Jirard gets up and finds a Gatorade! Chase HQ may be Greg's next review.
Q:What is your least favorite video? And I will not take "I like my newest video" as an answer.

Jon - He was doing a signing at MagFest, and the last guy in the line asks him to sign a picture of the guy naked with a gun over his dick. The signing had to say something very particular. It is posted online somewhere.
Q: What does one game that nobody likes that you like, and a game that everyone likes that you don't like?
A: Jared - can't stand Kingdom Hearts. Jon agrees. Jon always hated JRPG's that have gameplay because of grinding.
Nick says Monster Hunter.
Greg likes Chase HQ. Jon says Rollercoaster Tycoon. Jared's next video is a game that he likes (Super Bonk) that no one likes. It is insane.
Jirard doesn't care about The Elder Scrolls games.
Greg doesn't like Smash Bros. It is just because he is really bad at it.
Shane doesn't like Fallout 3.

Jon comments that people are thanking Jirard for reminding him not to shave!
Q: What made you want to upload your first video to the internet? What made you leap to making a living out of it.
A: Jared - In 2007, he made a show called Nametags. It's bad production wise. Some of the jokes are still funny and relevant. Jared worked at GameStop at the time, and wanted to make a show about the funny customers, and to have some heartfelt moments too.
He wanted to make a comedy show online. He wanted to make fun of Two Worlds, and that's why he started YouTube.

Q: Biggest cock?
A: Jared and Josh raise their hands. They leave to compare. Everyone watches. It's Josh.
Q: Shane: How do you select who covers Did You Know Gaming episodes?
A: They have to have a good voice, and something to monotise. A lot of traffic goes into the end of the video, and if someone doesn't monotise their videos, it would be a waste.
Q: What is a typical week of being a YouTuber?
Jon cuts his ear on his phone. He wakes up screaming, has to find his car. He called his father while using the toilet with a shattered phone, and cut his ear.
A: Greg: It's very rewarding to be your own boss.
Jared is a terrible boss for himself. He wakes up at noon every day, and spends the first few hours doing maintenance like emails. Read comments, get sad about the comments. He will record his Nuzlocke footage for the day. You play less video games than you think you would.
Jirard - Friday - video goes up. Friday - Sunday - he plays through the game. Sunday - he writes the script. Monday is voice overs. Tuesday - Thursday, editing. Friday pick a new game.

Q: Jon: Who is your wifeo, and why is your taste s***?

A: No, they aren't even sure if they got the right address.

Someone was trying to break into the house, and Satch was left on the couch asleep. Paul is crawling down the stairs, while the others were cowering at the top of the stairs. They asked who was there, and it was someone who attended the party!
Q: Greg: Which among you is the most beautiful?
A: Jared suggests Satch. Shane has the most muscles. Jirard suggests Paul.
They end the panel. Jon can't believe that people would sit through that panel.
