Tonight was yet another night that weather prevented us from seeing PANSTARRS. We’re running out of opportunities. I don’t know about you, but I could use a good laugh or two.
So how about a few more Cosmic Quips and Clips from our Comedy Contributor, Dan.
First up, Science comedian Brian Malow tells us how he thinks nagging mothers played a role in evolution:
Next, Woody Allen, from his stand-up comedy days, describes a hilarious idea for a science fiction film:
Our last clip isn’t exactly a comedy bit, but we think you’ll like it anyway. It’s legendary comedian George Carlin, just a few months before his death, getting serious to discuss his fascination and love of science. As Dan says, “It’s cool to see one of the greatest comedians of all time — a known skeptic in nearly every area — profess his love for physics and science, in general.”
And here’s a quip from Neil deGrasse Tyson to make you smile and think:
“If you are pro-solar power, try not to hold up signs that say “No Nukes” because that’s exactly how the Sun makes its energy.”
Remember, if you come across a great Cosmic Quip or Clip, email it to us at CosmicQuips@startalkradio.net
That’s it for now. Keep Looking Up!
