Thrakkorzog: After reading a couple comments up stream I had a thought... Shouldn't people running for public office have to pass an sat test for basic intelligence before they can run?
Ishkur: Thrakkorzog: After reading a couple comments up stream I had a thought... Shouldn't people running for public office have to pass an sat test for basic intelligence before they can run?Not basic intelligence (that's hard to quantify anyway), but at the very least scientific literacy and rational inquiry.
The Bestest: No wonder Newton was a jerk.. shiatty parents, no strange, an arch-nemesis.Meanwhile Halley had the rich, spoiling dad, hot wife, sailed around the world, and all the copies of "The History of Fish" a man could ever want.

Halley and Newton all survived well into their 80s. Christopher Wren died at age 91! And this was in an age where people didn't live past 60. Hooke is the only outlier but mostly due to lifestyle choice.Those Royal Society dudes were some tough bastards.
Danger Avoid Death: JerseyTim: Why do all these great scientists look like members of 80s hair metal bands?They're all Tesla fans.
The Googles Do Nothing: I'm watching basketball. You nerds can keep pretending this show makes you smarter when in fact your liberal arts degrees prove you know jack shiat.
Aquapope(favorite: 8144629 blames conservatives/texans for collider cancellation)Don't forget that Creationists are pissed that Cosmos hasn't given a fair shake to their theories.
Lapdance: At least the Original Cosmos had Live background settings for the storytelling. Now we get these crappy Cartoons. I'm just not liking it all that much.
Kumana Wanalaia: There's so many ways a comet can die?Bad Neil, bad!There're. There're. There're!
cameroncrazy1984: Flashlight: Easily the most boring program ever.Sorry, you want the 700 Club thread. Which doesn't exist.Hey, I've heard of Jan Oort! But then, I'm a nerd.
cmb53208: The history of fish??
Kiribub: "Put up or shut up"?In the 17th century?
cyberspacedout: Is there a slightly more conservative drinking game?
cameroncrazy1984: Fairly certain Tyson was just rapping there.
HindiDiscoMonster: Kiribub: Actually, Hell's Bells reminds me of the Dresden Files.I miss that show... Another show that died before it's time...
rewind2846: cameroncrazy1984: Benevolent Misanthrope: Hello, everyone!I have no cable, and therefore no Cosmos :(, but wanted to drop in and say Hi y'all.What's shakin'?You don't get Fox OTA?For all those people who repeat the phrase "Over The Air"Not everyone lives in an area with adequate reception due to distance, hills, living in apartments and not being able to stick a 40 foot antenna on the roof, and other interference factors. Those people use cable or satellite, and if they don't have cable or satellite, they have no live television. They will have to torrent the program later or download it from usenet, where it will be posted by 6 am tomorrow.
