There’s nothing that I enjoy more than a good, swear-filled rant at the idiocy around me. As regular readers may have noticed from time to time. Not only is it good for the soul but one can now justify cursing as a sign of hyper-intelligence (though I wouldn’t lay too much money on the “science” behind the proof). So I greatly enjoyed this clip from a recent episode of the Joe Rogan Experience, featuring paleontologist Trevor S Valle reacting to a shockingly popular YouTube video arguing that dinosaurs never existed. I’m not a great fan of Rogan, who’s not half as clever or funny as he thinks he is, however he does invite a wide range of interesting guests onto his podcasts, which makes for worthwhile viewing or listening. Of course, in this particular case it is somewhat odd to watch the former stand-up and sports’ commentator joining criticism of a conspiracy theory given his previous, very vocal disbelief in the manned Moon landings of 1969-72.
