Yesterday was International Holocaust remembrance day, on the 27th of January 1945 Auschwitz was liberated. Roughly 6 million Jews, 250k mentally disabled, 200k Romani, and close to 10k homosexual men. Despite being highly documented, having 1000s of complimentary personal accounts on both sides, and Nazi admitting it, some people still think the Holocaust was fictional. The nerds watch a video which is banned in parts of the EU. This documentary makes so many blatant mistakes it’s hard not to think they are intentional.
A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.
I was 16 when the towers came down. I had just come home from school and sat myself in front on the TV. Sky 1 was showing some Indiana Jones knock off when a breaking news banner scrolled across the screen. By the time I had turned to the news, both buildings had already collapsed onto themselves and the footage was being replayed endlessly. The video of the second plane hitting was being shown in a continuous loop, an already burning North Tower shown as moments later another plane would disappear into the South Tower. The next days I sat and watched the footage over and over again, the building imploding, a hole in the pentagon, a man with a brief case, his face reddened and handkerchief pushed to his mouth as a makeshift gas mask, a hole of burnt and blackened grass where a plane had found its way to the ground. New words names and places would enter my vocabulary Al-Qaeda, Bin Laden, Afghanistan. Days and weeks would pass and more footage would be added to the loop, Bin Ladan with an AK-47, rescue teams at ground Zero. But at some point, during the days or weeks after, sat there, watching the building come down for the thousands time, I thought to myself, “That looks like one of those controlled explosions”.
Myles and James sat down to watch the 2004 ‘Documentary’ What the Beep do we know. This film on the surface is a nonsense parade along the psuedo-science quackfeast that quantum science often spawns. However the film hides a deep sinister ideology that psychiatric conditions are the fault of the individual suffering with such conditions.
What? But how? It’s not even a good movie! Myles and James are joined by the encourage-able Buck for a chat about Alex Jones and his review of the trailer of the not so soon to be out film Prometheus 2. Got that? Good!
This week myles and James talk about the wonderful news that a certain strain of polio might now be eradicated and nearly across the board polio is down! Also we talk about how the vaccine has not caused paralysis. Reports that the vaccine was causing NON-polio acute flaccid paralysis came about from misreading the data and possibly trying to push an agenda.
This week Myles and James are joined by Buck for a discussion of the movie GMO OMG. Aside from the sound track this movie suffers from the typical anti GMO movie of having no substance.
This week Myles and James are joined by Gaz from the Leicester Skeptics in the Pub and Axis Mundi talks about his personal experience with alternative treatments for cancer. James and Myles try to see what changed Gaz’s mind and how he came to understand that he was not helping himself by refusing ‘western’ medicine.
