I Was Wrong About Something
During my talk about the World Series last week I made a couple mistakes. Hard to believe, I know.
I was wrong about how home field advantage is determined in the World Series. I was correct last year, but Major League Baseball changed to the team with the best regular season record gets it. It is no longer determined by the winner of the All-Star Game.
And I was wrong about which team won the 2017 All-Star Game.
I Now Know People Who Actually Eat Bone Marrow
The Minnesota Skeptics’ monthly meet-up was just held. It was its usual good time. However, some of the devoured one of the most unappetizing appetizer I’ve ever seen. Bone marrow. I’d heard that there are people who eat it. Now I know a few personally.
I’m not one of them.
Pedantic Moment: The Back Of A Cylinder
A young MN Skeptic mentioned some writing on the back of an over-sized can of water. I remarked on the interesting idea of there being a back of a cylinder.
Yes, I know what he meant.
He’s Bad Enough, You Don’t Have To Lie About Him
So those still pictures of Pres. Trump feeding koi in Japan? You know, the ones that are making Trump out to be an idiot, because he dumped “too much” at once? Well, guess what the video shows…
The UK Has A Problem With Big Cats Roaming The Countryside
In this segment, I go on a rant about people letting their cats roam outside. It’s a familiar rant to regular listeners, but I did add a new reason for my dislike of my neighbors letting their cats out.
Top Three Cool Things Of The Week
Here are the Top Three Cool Things from this week.
3) Admittedly, I was a bit coy on this one. There may be something pretty cool happening in a few months for Dimland Radio. I didn’t want to give details. I’ll do that when the something is a certainty.
2) This past Thursday was the second Thursday of the month, so that means I attended the MN Skeptics Meet-Up. Always a real cool time.
1) My wife, son, and I saw Penn & Teller perform this past week and we got autographs and pictures. It was a great show.
Movie Recommendation: Downfall (2004)
Not a feel-good movie experience in anyway, Downfall is a fascinating telling of the last days of the Third Reich. Bruno Ganz gives a brilliant performance of the crumbling dictator as he faces (and doesn’t face) the defeat of his empire. Much of the story is based of the information given by Traudl Junge, who was Hitler’s secretary in those last days.
The film was criticized for making Hitler seem to human, but he was human. I think showing him as such takes away the mythic aspect of der fuhrer who came very close to realizing his ambition to rule the world.
