In an attempt to have a fatwa issued on his life Buck and Terry McDermott sit down and talk about how islam may drive extremist Islamic terrorism. Terry is the author of Perfect soldiers: The 9/11 Hijackers: Who They Were, Why They Did It.
Oh boy another hot button topic, we had planned this episode a long time in advance in order to not be accused of milking any hype or drama, then the universe spat in Myles’ furry little eye by having Sargon/Anita drama at vidcon. Troy Leavitt (veteran Game developer/designer) talks to the nerds about his industry opinion on gamergate.
Oh boy… A fake paper does not make an entire field fake. There’s no need to use fake papers to criticize any field. Any field of research has holes and tings that look ridiculous from the outside. Relying on hoaxes to try and make your point especially when those hoaxes were spotting as much makes you look a bit silly! The whole conceptual penis should also draw attention to the shitty publishing behaviors of big publishing houses which curate real journals and have scam journals on their books too.
Bought is a 2015 Documentary in which Tony Bark (Quicksliver from Xmen not the MArvel extended universe) tries to tie together all sorts of health based conspiracy theories. The films titular idea is that big pharma is paying to spread diseases. This frankly idiotic idea is repeatedly asserted by a cavalcade of the under qualified, misrepresented, and down right morons.
Yeah I guess this week Buck bores C0nc0rdance for 50 mins or so about his inane ideals and politics. The topic, politic and science two low key and none hot button topics at all. What are the lines of where scientists should engage in politics, do they even exist? Is everything politics? Should Scientists be listened to as experts? Why all the questions? What is this, some sorta interrogation?
Framed as a return to form after the calamity of Prometheus (which made $300 million profit ffs), Alien: Covenant is Ridley Scott’s, hopefully, final bash at the Alien franchise. We join a group of misfits with no real purpose or clear goal as they talk about a film with aliens and what not.
