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

"The Clean Room"
Season 1, Episode 7
The tempestuous youth of the Earth effectively erased all traces of its beginnings. So how did we ever learn its true age? World-renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson reveals the answer.

Tonight's rules:

Neil says:

Billion(s) - big sip
Billions and billions - finish your drink
Earth - sip
Cosmos - sip
Asteroid - sip

Man, am I so ready for this. It was insanely nice out today so I got a sixer of High LIfe bottles for the drinking game tonight.

Jebus! Hell, some of us have to work on Tuesday.

Fundies are going to get extra pissed because it's Easter.

I put a pillow by the dumpster behind McDonald's since I usually wake up there when playing drinking games

I hate that we're missing this show on the first run, but we'll catch up with it after GoT.

/damn you, Fox schedulers!

Well, then consider them suggestions rather than rules.

Can't watch until tomorrow, but dropping through to say Hi!  How's every one doing?

Thanks for reminding me that this is Sunday!

I just hope my son doesn't call halfway through the show wanting me to come pick him up from work. He's scheduled till 9:00 central, but sometimes they let him off early.
 
2014-04-20 08:24:26 PM  
How much do we drink when the usual crowd comes in and tells us how much this sucks compared to Carl Sagan's version? I only have 2 bottles of Mountain Dew and even though I don't get lit I still like to play along.

Bring on the goosepimples.

The show repeats tomorrow night in most areas.

I'm high as a kite and have a six-pack of Two Hearted Ale. Let's do this.

That might not be enough.

I thought it was just me.

I made the mistake of not DVRing this last week.  I watched it on Comcast "On Demand".  I swear the commercial breaks were about 5 minutes apart, and lasted at least 4 minutes each. Seriously.  You can't fast forward through them.  It was worse than watching it on regular tv.
 
2014-04-20 08:40:54 PM  
I think so far he's only said "Billions and billions" once, directly invoking the erroneous quote in jest.

MOUNTAIN DEW IS THE BEST SODA EVER MADE!

I will be drinking to GoT...  I am hoping to hear 'did not, in the end, shiat gold' tonight......
 
2014-04-20 08:44:02 PM  
Can we drink cocktails other than Cosmos?

/they can be expensive

On NatGeo I think. Bit of a problem since I don't have cable... or a DVR.
 
2014-04-20 08:50:51 PM  
May not be available for viewing in Kansas.

yeah I'm using Hulu Plus. I'm in a temporary apartment with only basic, non-HD cable and honestly, the show looks like arse this way. That could be my reception. On Monday it's on Hulu in glorious HD.

But that is cancelled out by it also being the 4/20.

I really need to get out to the Grand Canyon. My parents camped near there a couple years ago.

OH GOD THE EARTH IS RISING
 
2014-04-20 09:08:03 PM  
Who is this wizard who can tear apart the Grand Canyon? He has powers. Scary powers. BURN HIM.

More likely, Dr. DeGrasse is gifted with Earth Manipulation.

Nope, more like Graviton.
