Waiting 4 Wrath – Episode 136 – The One Where We Fall Off The Edge Of The Earth Disk

In this week’s show, episode 136, The Prophet Jeremiah helps stop hate preaching flat earthers by selling them on an abstinence-only reproduction plan… And drugs. So many drugs.
Is attrition a drug?

Now, grab a beer and help us test the god hypothesis — because, while Mbomba (the creator god of the Congo) hasn’t struck us down yet, we are trying his patience!

Shea’s Life Lesson

I don’t exist.

Jenn’s Actual Lesson

Did you know Marie Curie, the first woman to win a Nobel (and the only person to win 2) kept detailed journals of her scientific work? You probably aren’t surprised. BUT did you know that these journals are still so radioactive they cannot be handled safely and are stored in lead-lined boxes?

But before we get to all that, let’s have a beer!

Great show

Humorous, witty and well informed. Great show. Found via Cognitive Dissonance podcast.

Jenn has a correction from last week’s story. King RICHARD III, not Henry was found buried under the parking garage.

This Week’s Stories

Jenn’s Story

Emmanuel Macron continues his dark horse rise to become world president of my heart.

Business Insider

The French government (led personally by President Macron) has initiated the Make Our Planet Great Again movement, in direct response to our Commander In Chief (a discarded bag of rotting hot wing skins) and his decision to withdraw from Paris Climate agreement.

http://bit.ly/2syi232 ← Watch this, it is glorious.

This movement is creating an outlet for scientists, teachers, researchers, and students to continue their work to fight climate change. Because this is what real countries, led by real leaders, do.

Per Business Insider:

Researchers, teachers, and students can apply for a four-year grant that allows them to continue their studies or instruction, fully financed

Businesspeople and heads of NGOs can also apply to receive funding from the federal government, which issues grants to organizations it considers deserving.

The Make Our Planet Great Again website goes into a more detailed explanation:

You will be able to stay in France at least for the duration of the grant, and longer if you are granted a permanent position. There is no restriction on your husband/wife working in France. If you have children, note that French public schools are free, and the tuition fees of universities and ‘grandes écoles’ are very low compared to the American system.”

I recognize the Grade A delicious shade in this small paragraph and say ‘merci’ to the entire nation of France for calling America on its goddamn bullshit so beautifully. It’s only missing a blurb on national health care to be total perfection. France, you are a magnificent bastard.

Peter, Pale And Mary | Mikkeller ApS

Faith In Humanity Restored

This police dog was fired from his job for an adorable reason – http://bit.ly/2syg2Id

This is Gavel, a German Shepherd who was recruited as a puppy to train as a police dog – but ended up getting the sack.

Unfortunately, Gavel was found to be not up to the task. As the police put it, he “did not display the necessary aptitude for a life on the front line.”

The problem was, Gavel was too sociable. He loved meeting strangers, and would much rather play with someone than help arrest them.

However, as one door closes another opens – and Gavel was offered a new job working for the Governor of Queensland, where he holds the official title Vice-Regal Dog.

His duties include greeting visitors to Queensland’s Government House and attending official functions with Governor Paul de Jersey.

“Gavel on occasions sits in on briefings with the Governor. Gavel has also demonstrated his capacity to uphold the ceremonial importance of his role at State of Origin time.”

“He has outgrown four ceremonial coats, undergone a career change, and brought untold joy to the lives of the governor, Mrs de Jersey, Government House staff, and the thousands of Queenslanders who have since visited the estate.”
