Episode 1: Governing Animals

Boat or Monster?

You’ll want to hold on to this one.  It’ll be worth a fortune in just a blink of an eye, in geologic time.

During the inaugural (i.e. #1) episode of Science… sort of:

• The guys introduce themselves, as is appropriate, you probably don’t know who they are. To find out even more see the bios for Justin, Patrick and Ryan.

• Google Earth captures the Loch Ness Monster, it may or may not be disguised as a boat. Head to Latitude: 57°12’51.25″N and Longitude: 4°34’14.49″W to decide for yourself!

• There used to be really big scary reptiles back in the day, Patrick tells us more!

• Trailer Trash Talk kicks off with the trailer for The Men Who Stare at Goats, and we explain the mysterious workings of the Hollywood Stock Exchange.

• Hybridization is awesome, except for one terrible flaw, would you make the switch?

• Is Superman a plant? You decide!

Disney buys Marvel and Ryan pontificates on the business side of Imagineering.

Music this week provided by:

However, one 10-12 hour night-time period generally isn’t enough to leave him powerless.
