I'm listening to some of this stuff right now and can't believe it. This is next level comedy material that I need to be throwing on now in funny ass situations.
I feel like I sort of know that sort of dweeb. Just reading through some of the YouTube comments on these videos is painful. A bunch of science bros talking about how "we need to explore the universe because, hey, after all man, the stars are talking to us." I have never and hopefully will never think that the stars are talking to me without the assistance of some really powerful hallucinogenic substances.
