Anti-authoritarian moose, postmarked pythons, crooked K-9s, and unintelligently-designed NASA computer specialists — we’re gonna need a bigger exterminator. Also, they’re the topics this week on SeriouslyGuys. Here’s the recap:
A Mountie tried to take two moose’s insolence sitting down and nearly lost his mount (squad car) in the process. (Oct. 30, 2012)
If you’re still waiting for your Snakes of the Month delivery in South Africa, then authorities — and some frightened postal workers — would like to have a word with you. (Oct. 31, 2012)
Foreskin, Bigfoot, hangmen, Will.i.am, and beer — the weekly recap of SeriouslyGuys posts returns with a bang. (Not that I didn’t post on SeriouslyGuys those other weeks. I’ve just been a little too busy to post them up here.) Anywho, here’s the recap:
There’s a foreskin on your dick; no, there’s not. And American pediatricians say that’s OK. (Aug. 27, 2012)
A man who tried to impersonate Bigfoot by wearing a ghillie suit was run over by some teens. Scooby and the gang do. not. fuck. around. (Aug. 28, 2012)
In 2008, NASA beamed a recording of The Beatles’ “Across the Universe” into space. Four years, a severely cut budget and no response later, they’ve taken a new tack: assaulting Mars with Will.i.am. And make no mistake: a sonic bombardment of auto-tuned Black-Eyed Pea is just that, an assault, perhaps meant to drive lifeforms out of hiding so they’ll try to turn the stereo off. Or even just pound on the ceilings of their subterranean lairs with a broom handle. Any reaction that gives them away will do, really.
So, how did we arrive at this point, where America’s space agency has mohawks and Mars rovers with twitter accounts? With the end of manned space missions, NASA has embraced a new goal: cultural relevancy.
You can’t blame them. When 46 percent — nearly half — of Americans believe in strictly creationism and a sitting member of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology doesn’t know how rape works (and yet has an opinion about it), it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize that nobody cares about space exploration unless we find God a la Star Trek V.
Space smells, dangerous sex, guns, ancient bras, and break-up lessons — either my space opera novella was picked up by a publisher … or, these were the topics of SeriouslyGuys this week. Here’s the recap:
Flies and the bats who eat them prove that men are faster at sex because, unlike women, we care about predators. Women, amiright? (Jul. 24, 2012)
Take it from Snee: The right to my hobby to fire 100 rifle rounds at the shooting range without reloading shall not be infringed. And the rest of you just have to subsidize that hobby with your lives. (Jul. 25, 2012)
Asteroids, cavity searches, naughty sheriffs, panda sex, and ghost pirates — why no, I’m not developing the greatest video gameever. These are just the topics of this week’s SeriouslyGuys posts. Here’s the recap:
Take it from Snee: I postpone writer’s block for the rest of the month by launching a three-part series, Explaining the U.S. Branches of Government to Foreigners and Children. This week is part one: the executive branch! (Apr. 4, 2012)
The U.S. Coast Guard sank a ghost ship off the coast of Alaska. Next up: demolishing that abandoned theme park on the edge of town. Your days of pussyfooting around are over, Mystery Machine. (Apr. 6, 2012)
