Recommended by a friend and after watching, I must admit: a definite must-watch for DW fans.
Science for Smart People — A really great (and funny) talk about using your critical thinking skills, using the scientific method, and drawing your own conclusions whenever you see a X MAY BE LINKED TO CANCER!!1!/YOU BEING FAT/ETC. headline. It’s really long, clocking in at about 40 minutes, but worth a watch.
Definitely worth watching!
Jon Stewart took to The Daily Show last night (11/10/11) to talk about the Penn State child sexual abuse scandal, and gave a serious commentary about how people knew of Sandusky’s abuse and didn’t do anything, as well as the recent student rioting over the firing of coach Joe Paterno.
The very end of this is worth heeding for Penn State fans: “And just like with the Catholic Church, no one is trying to take away your religion, in this case, football. They’re just trying to bring some accountability to a “Pope” and some of his “Cardinals” who fucked up. So don’t worry, on Saturday, you’ll still get to go to ‘services’ against Nebraska. No one’s going to take that away. Because, obviously, you’re young. And that would be a traumatic experience. And we wouldn’t want that memory to scar you for life.”
