Okay I didn't see the Bigfoot episode. Watching the second one now, "Weaponized Weather". Chemtrails was up first.
Joe of course hypes it up and I was fully ready to hate him as being Jessie Ventura II but he regained my faith as he smashed the first Chemtrail kook. He called him on all his bullshit and was even MORE skeptical afterwards.
Second kook was at first more convincing but when he went full HAARPtard and Alientard, Joe mocked him appropriately.

Some of the later HAARP stuff was at least interesting.

I've enjoyed both. Last night while a nut was talking, Joe's eyebrows were out of control and he made the crazy eyes. He believes in a whole lot of shit that I don't, but also doesn't believe in some of the real bullshit. Jesse drinks in everything.

I've slammed Joe in the past(and he deserved it), but I have to say that he does a really good job on this show. He's definitely entertaining and he does critical thinking really well.

But I'm sort of disgusted by the fact that I've seen him throw out plenty of pseudoscientific nonsense himself in the past. Seeing him on this latest show makes me think that he knows the earlier crap he talked was bullshit, but he went and talked it up like it was real to an audience he knew was gullible and receptive just so he could make himself look like a radical thinker and an intellectual maverick.

Anyway... it's good to see him of the side of logic and reason for a change.

I give this show the Hudson's-not-funny-ambulance-picture two thumbs up.

I was looking forward to the show, not too disappointed. I'll keep watching. I really like listening to Rogan's podcast.

SyFy really knows how to write a press release:

NEW YORK – July 25, 2013 – Syfy’s new unscripted series Joe Rogan Questions Everything became the channel’s most watched reality premiere in more than five months, averaging 1.3 million total viewers, 720K Adults 25-54 and 693K Adults 18-49 during its debut on Wednesday, July 24 from 10-11PM (ET/PT).

Instead of thinking, "Wow! Joe is doing great!" after reading that piece of shit, all I'm thinking is, "What non-reality debut did better in the past five months?" and "What reality debut kicked Joe's ass six months ago?"

Just give the numbers, shitdicks. Don't narrow your victory down to such an embarrassingly tiny sliver.

I wanna give you a like for this....

I give this show the Hudson's-not-funny-ambulance-picture two thumbs up.
...and another one for this.

EDIT: Why, on a QWERTY keyboard is the ":" the alternate while the ";" is the default? The ":" is used far more often.

I really liked the first two episodes.

"I'm too stupid to know who is stupid" was my favorite quote from the last episode.
Kind of like a reverse Dunning-Krueger Effect in which somebody is so terrible he thinks he's good at something and he cannot tell that he or others are stupid or unskilled.

Because the semicolon has the potential to be used just about as often as most other punctuation marks. They can be used in lieu of commas and periods, and often people incorrectly place a colon in the place of a semicolon. Its use is diminishing as our grasp of proper English gradually gets worse.

Or:

Colon:


Semicolon:



Pop culture humour, LOL!

I watched the HAARP episode a few days ago. Very interesting. I always thought those reports and youtube videos of people hearing strange sounds coming from the sky were fake but if entire towns with thousands of people are reporting hearing the same sound.


The transhuman futurist episode was great. People are kidding themselves if they think they will be able to get their hands on this technology to make you immortal. It will be reserved for the rich and politicians. But would it really make you immortal? Uploading your brain to a new body after you die? Wouldn't it just be a robot programmed to think like you?

If everyone had access to the technology would you have to control population growth in some way? And if you did that, at some point wouldn't the human race become extinct and it would be nothing but robots with human brains uploaded to a chip?

You should alert all the scientists and governments that can't figure out what the sound is or where its coming from.
They already know what it is. Just because someone posts a video and claims it's a mystery, doesn't mean it actually is. Since the conditions that produce this sound are very rare and they happen in areas with next to no human population, it isn't something the average person will run across. If you ever heard a water bottle harp it sounds a lot like those sounds only not as amplified. Ice and glass are both crystals and they vibrate at certain frequencies and produce sound. No big mystery, just ice wind and pressure.

Go ice fishing and you hear some horrible sounds the whole time.

Did you see the Rogan episode? I did some googling and I see no scientists giving the explanation you are giving. The only theory I see is it could be electromagnetic noise emitted from auroras and radiation belts. The sound shakes peoples cars and sets off car alarms in a town of a few thousand people.

This is the crux of most conspiracy, Coast to Coast, Art Bell, Ancient Aliens type shows. Ancient Aliens would not be as "fun" of a show if they had a guy debunk pretty much 100% of the utter nonsense that is spewed on that show. Same goes for most of what Rogan talks about, most of it can be debunked if he discussed it with the right guest.

Not sure what you think "noise" is referring to here, but it is usually not meant to be an audible sound. For example "noise" is always present on an RF transmission but hopefully you have enough "clean" signal to overcome the noise so the receiver (TV, radio etc) produces a good picture or sound. With audio or video when you are often looking at how strong a signal is but that should not be your only measurement, often you need to take a look at some kind of SNR, which is a Signal to Noise ratio. Too much noise = unusable signal.

Sound is a strange thing, too. Sometimes the acoustics of an area make it seem as though sounds are coming from the sky or whatever.
At the last place I worked, we had one machine that made an annoying humming sound. It was the type of sound that you could almost feel inside your brain. The strange part was that it wasn't really annoying or that loud when you stood right next to it. If you were working 50 yards away, it sounded like the noise was twice as loud and coming from everywhere. Walk ten feet right or left, and you could barely hear it.
Long story short, noises don't always come from where they sound like they are (the sky in this instance), and sometimes they seem louder farther away from the source. Thus, then HAARP is almost certainly not causing noises to come from the sky.

The town people think its coming from Zug island so Rogan got on a boat and went to the island but they couldn't hear anything. They talked to people back on the mainland who said they could hear a mild hum.

wow, people posting fake videos not volunteering information to disprove themselves ... hmmm.
The local authorities in these areas are looking into the sounds and they can't figure out where its coming from. So who are the researches that were in these areas who found out it was ice moving? I'm just asking questions like Joe.
