Space Lettuce?? Let Us Space!! >>

EPISODE #222

AIRED: 01-03-2020

After a run of amazing guests over the last few weeks, we have let the lettuce-pile pile. So today we don our bibs, grab the proper fork, apply a dash of Iron, and dig in whole-heartedly! Ok…maybe half-heartedly. Sheesh, ok, ok, you got me…no heart at all here!! Just lettuce. And FIRE!! Lots of SPACE FIRE!! Walt predicts that in 2020, Space Fire will become the NEW Space Lettuce! We shall see…
–Zack wants to drop magnets…spin ’em, too. Sounds exciting!! But, Scientism beat ya to the drop, Zack! French physicists have done an experiment: the researchers buckled two metal cylinders inside a satellite called Microscope, launched them into low-Earth orbit, and measured how the cylinders fell around Earth for two years. Inside the satellite, they used glorified seat belts to secure the cylinders, each made of a different metal alloy. As the satellite hurtled 440 miles overhead, the smart seat belts measured the force required to keep each cylinder in place. Should one cylinder require more force to stay still, that would indicate its free-fall acceleration was faster than its neighbor’s. If a deviation in gravity existed, surely this years-long drop would reveal it. But it didn’t. The physicists found that the two cylinders fell at identical rates, within two-trillionths of a percent of each other—confirming Einstein’s theory of gravity yet again with almost 100 times more precision than any prior experiment. “There was no deviation from general relativity,” says Hees. That was kind of a bummer. Man.
–Iron Snow?? Contradictions between seismic data and existing models of our planet’s molten insides have been hard to solve. So geologists are now reconsidering the existence of a fuzzy zone of mineral ‘snow’ gently falling from the bottom of the outer core. “Time will tell whether the iron-snow model of our core might have merit. It’s not just of academic interest either; we’re desperate to know how the engines deep under the surface churn out a magnetic field, feed volcanoes, and produce earthquakes.” “…we’re desperate to know how the engines deep under the surface churn out a magnetic field…” Ummmm…
–FLAMES! In SPACE!!! The Expedition 61 crew explored a variety of space phenomena including how flames spread in weightlessness. Commander Luca Parmitano of ESA (European Space Agency) set up the unique video camera this morning to record him and Koch as they worked on combustion research. The duo burned acrylic and fabric samples in the Microgravity Science Glovebox to help scientists understand how flames expand in space to increase fire safety. Is that smoke I smell…or the next trend in rinse & repeat space drivel?
–We lost Syd “Blade Runner” Mead and Jack “I’m Just A Bill” Sheldon over the last week. They will be missed.
–We get a call from Angelo, the trucker, who has a Sasquatch living in his backyard eating his Mandarin oranges. He then proceeds to easily switch gears when he realizes he has called-in to a flat-centric show and proceeds to apply a smacking in his own right! Non-globularists in the house!
–We get our next-to-last call from Johnathon From Jersey. We touch on spoken tongues, God-like powers are granted then rescinded, and Zack craftily slips out of JFJ’s snare!

We tried. But rest assured, our meager words of thanx, loss, pain, regret, and anger…yeah, mostly anger, those words from some who met him and others touched by his work can do very little to shine a light on a life lived like Rob Skiba’s. And that is what he did. He lived. He lived...

Today we have a great surprise: we are joined once again by Nick from the Phuket Word channel! He popped into chat and asked to pop in to chat, and joined us live for our Femily discussion. We touched on SO many amazing topics with Nick, from jibber-jabber to perspective on our plane, and as...

Today things get very emotional early on as we hear about Josh’s wife being forced to submit to the whims of the Evil Fucks and altering her genetic code. It hits Walt so hard his rescue kitten Cleo has to intercede with some Emergency Auditory Frequency Shifting applied directly to the Hearth chakra. We do...

About Your Practitioner Hi I’m Claire, I am one of those rare people in life that can honestly tell you… I LOVE MY JOB!!! I began studying nutrition 11 years ago, halfway through I felt like something was missing. I shifted my focus to Naturopathy and again I found myself looking for more. I firmly...
