Welcome to the "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey" discussion thread and drinking game!

"Deeper, Deeper, Deeper Still"
Season 1, Episode 6
The episode explores the smallest particles in the universe, where host Neil deGrasse Tyson "hunts for elusive neutrinos and the distant, early universe." The episode features the underground neutrino laboratory, Super-Kamiokande, located underneath Mount Kamioka in Japan.

Tonight's rules:

Neil says:

Billion(s) - big sip
Billions and billions - finish your drink
Neutrino(s) - sip
Cosmos - sip
Universe - sip

You forgot a few:


Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ - Rob a liquor store.  Drink your spoils
When god created the universe - Grab a shovel and dig up a dead relative cause it's sexy time
I wants me some watermelon - try not to die from laughter


I just... w...

I don't how to respond to this. But I did laugh.

If you have Netflix, NdGT's Great Courses series is available.

Sure was nice of them to greenlight it in advance of the show this week instead of after.

Agreed.

That was my fault. Last week, I totally forgot it was Sunday and FAILed to submit the thread. Which was especially sad because Neil said, "billions and billions."

I'd donate to any charity of his choosing if he dropped something like that. That man can troll with the best of them.

No, no. You're thinking of Reginald VelJohnson, the cop from Die Hard and it's spin off show Family Matters.

Airing this at the same time as Game of Thrones probably wasn't the smartest thing.
 
2014-04-13 08:55:04 PM  
And yes, I screwed up the it's and its thing. It makes me cringe just looking at it.

Thankfully the HBO GoT season-start and SciFi Monday's season-ending(s) only overlaps by two weeks, meaning only two weeks were there is no time Sun/Mon able to watch this show.

Now to watch Arya go all 'Kill Bill' with a sword....

/refuses to call it SiFi

Sigh...I wonder how many people will logic their way to knowing this can't be possible. I would say 95% of the public would not even care to question it.

I've been bagging on the first few episodes, but last week it showed some glimmers of the old Cosmos coolness. NdGT talking some Newton smack in front of Newton's actual house was good. And he slid from Frauhoffer Lines right into Quantum Physics. Nice.

'Course, we had to hijack another thread on Fark last week to talk about it. Fark's lack of faith was....disturbing.

Airing a show every 10 year old should be watching at 9pm isn't that bright either

Mike Tyson should be doing the show.

Sorry bout  that. Was a perfect storm of shift change/timing mistakes. Nothing intentional I assure you. Farkstaff all dig this show big time.

That was not Fark's fault; it was mine. I totally blanked on the fact that it was Sunday and never submitted the thread.
