00:00:00 - Whats the best way to look inside a mouse? Finely-tuned laser-excitable nanotubes of course! Ben has more in the way of explanations, but Ryan brings the analogies.
00:16:15 - Ben also has something weird to drink but he recommended it to all. Ben also brings his PaleoPOW to bear early with a voicemail from Anthony in AUS concerning som Vostok Space Beer. Charlie is calling back to an oldie but a goodie. And Ryan has a beer themed to go with our transition into...
00:25:19 -Trailer Trash Talk which is renewing it's lease in the show by reexplaining it's origins and purpose. Then we talk about Transformers: Dark of the Moon and why this trailer gets the science wrong within the first frames.
00:36:00 - Humans evolved eyes and the neurons to go with them, but sometimes people have eyes that don't work. A new study shows that clicking your way around the world actually involves processing in the visual cortex, therefor Batman just became that much more plausible.
00:52:37 - PaleoPOWs are a lot like transformers, they're hard to coordinate and you remember them as being better than they actually are. First off we say thanks to all those in the armed forces. And a special thanks to James H. who left some kind words on the Facebook Page. NOTE: We recorded this close to Memorial Day even if came out a week late. Next, it turns out we've been reviewed by Podcast Squared, who said mostly good things but also had some criticisms worth discussing. Self reflection is always riveting stuff!
