Science... sort of

Jun 26, 2012

00:00:00 - Supervolcanoes could striek at pretty much any moment. At least that's what Ayla has to say as she joins from a mid-reconstruction New Zealand to tell us all about her research into potentially destructive magma chmabers just waiting to strike!

00:25:53 - Drinks cool you down as the magma heats you up. Ben has some weird vita malt thing from Denmark. He loves it. Ryan suspects it tastes like beer and Ben just doesn't know what that tastes like. Ben washes it down with a banana, your guess is as good as ours. Ryan and Abe sip some sotol from the Chihuahua region of Mexico. It's like mezcal or tequila, only... not.

00:34:25 - Trailer Trash Talk debate the trailer tactics of Pixar in relation to their latest offering Brave.

00:44:45 - Dogs have been around for awhile. Some maybe more than others. New research attempts to combine the results of genetics, archaeology, and biogeography to shed new light on the origins of man's best friend.

01:09:03 - PaleoPOWs are a lot like dogs. No one is quite sure where or when they came from, but we know they're here now. Ryan tries to pick Ben up with a quote as recounted by Lee U. A quote which was so inspirational it sent Lee back to school. Go Lee! Ben then used that energy to give Andrew B. a very long answer about laser guns in sci-fi. And finally Abe has a tweet from Christina praising his "hot hard rock"-ness. OK, then.
