Skeptics' Guide to the Universe (of asteroid mining and Mayans)

By Phil Plait | May 20, 2012 7:00 am

As a change of pace, I was the guest rogue on this week’s episode of The Skeptics’ Guide to the Universe. We covered a lot of ground, from Futurama heads to asteroid mining to Mayans… and I have an abysmal record at the Science or Fiction segment when I’m on the show, so you can hold your breath in anticipation to see if I finally get one right, or once again go down in flames. I’ll note, obviously, that I always get it right when I listen to the show at home.

And nothing says love like Rebecca promising she’d freeze my head. Such a romantic.

    Ahem…what was that about someone freezing your head?!?

    And when I tell I girl I like that I’d freeze her head, I’m suddenly creepy.

    I sometimes freeze my own head with ice cream.

    I went a-googling for a decent rock pun to post here and I’m petrified by how many sites there are on the innertubes that have geology jokes. Is that a good or a bad thing?

    Gives new meaning to Talking Heads. I, for one, would specify how my reanimated cranium will displayed to avoid such humorous and demented configurations such as dog body/human head!
