This is a small thing but I'm asking it non-rhetorically: at 3:30 when you say, 'That's why you don't levitate during a full moon,' what does the phase of the moon have to do with its gravity or tidal forces?

It sort of makes sense that a new moon would have more pull (when the moon is lined up with the sun's gravity) but that didn't seem what you meant from the context, and I thought the moon's distance was separate from its phase.

Great episode,of course, and good head canon. Science for what can make sense, magic for what can't.

+PBS Space Time That's a fuller explanation than my comment warranted, but I understand what you were saying much better now.

Like +Errol Kokbas said, if it can make it in your queue, a video on tides, and really the phases of the moon in general, would be greatly enjoyed.

'As a person who analyzed drone footage and prepared target reports (gel spatial intelligence analyst) I can truly say that the worst part is living with myself and my actions while knowing my life was never once in danger.'

I really enjoyed all of this conversation, from talking about the article itself, to how it was shaped by blogs, to the comparison to climate change as an issue.

Mainly Coates' & Klein's frankness about what they know & don't know, and what's easy & obvious versus what's hard & unforeseeable.

Also: Coates' exhortation to not just write about what can get 60 votes in the Senate but what deserves to happen, regardless of current plausibility.

Bizzle just says what we were all already thinking, and by 'we' I mean 'Uganda.'

Back when I played Madden, my thinking was that if I have four plays to make first down, I only need to average 2.5 yards per play to keep moving down the field versus 3.3 yards per play punting. And it does give you a defensive advantage by not letting the other team even get a chance to play offense.

But there also weren't any ESPN talking heads or radio shows riling up people to get me fired from playing Madden poorly.
