Mars Needs Podcasts #194- I’m HUGE in Canada

JJ and his amazing friend Jason are back to have a nice scientific discussion of the metric system and all of its great uses. Okay, they don’t really discuss the metric system as much as flat out say that it kinda confuses them, and the fact that it just might have magical properties when it comes to well, listen to find out.

If you have any comments, feel free to join the new DOOM! forum and leave them there. All the cool kids are doing it.

Well, maybe cool is stretching the truth a tiny bit. Cool can’t be too strong a qualification, they let me in.

    Another great episode! I have pretty much the opposite thing in that Fahrenheit pretty much makes no sense to me whatsoever, in that it’s not just shifted up from C or that there’s like 4 F to every one C or something, it’s just that it grows in a weird exponential way or something? I don’t get it
    anyway great episodes back to back and I can’t remember if it was in this one or the last one, I guess both? But Cabin in the Woods might have ruined horror trailers for me now, because I thought the Texas Chainsaw remake trailer -had- to be a joke until I realized they were serious.

    I forget if it was this episode or the last where you mentioned this but I’ll be airing my Well Actuallys regardless. The Lord of the Rings isn’t an allegory (a term not restricted to the Bible, by the way) for nuclear war. While published after the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the books were primarily written prior, well before atomic fears gripped public imagination. Moreover, the books aren’t an allegory for anything, by Tolkien’s own protestations, and he rather disliked allegory as a literary device on the whole. Which is funny given how close he and C.S. Lewis were as friends.
