Mr Tee Tee ,

Love it!!! 😁

I love this show NDT and chuck nice are the perfect combination teaches me all about the universe and blew my mind a few times! My only complaint is that sometimes you have to go digging to find the good ones but that is a little price to pay for such amazing content!
Keep it up! 🙂

Rabbit's Hole ,

Lying globalist clowns.

The people who think they are "geeky" and "into science" because they watched the most basic and simplistic 15-minute Neil DeGrasse Tyson or Bill Nye video are unbearable. People who are legitimately interested in science are completely turned off by Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Bill Nye. Nothing they have to say is relevant to real science. They belong to the cult of scientism.

EDIT: People who are into those two tend to be into Elon Musk (another person I can't stand).

These idiot actor clowns are still doing podcasts. Wake up people reclaim your brains.
