Science... sort of

Nov 3, 2009

In episode 9 the paleopals add Charlie to the mix again and then turn the mic on themselves, Justin specifically.  Justin had a paper come out in PNAS discussing the famous man-eating lions of Tsavo (of Ghosts in the Darkness fame).  He thinks that it was just one of the pair that was causing all of the trouble.  He also figured how many people they ate using only science.  Next the paleopals take a stab at The Box.  Is it a masterpiece of moral dilemma or another Richard Kelly debacle?  Would you push the button? Finally, the guys learn all about how Superman's various abilities are really just one physics defying power.  We start out discussing amongst ourselves, but Ryan has a surprise.  He brings in the big gun, Benjamin Tippet (AKA Lenny Lippet?), to infom us that unless you have a pocket full of kryptonite or a black hole at your disposal, you don't tug on Superman's cape (spitting in the wind is optional).
