  • Thanks for a great season! Looking forward to season 6.

  • MagnetronMagneticPulsers

    Narcissistic psychopaths pay no regard to common sense grin. This is a perfect example of someone who lacks emotional intelligence. The biggest threat to mankind is human stupidity.

    • Taxil Necrobane

      That and Human arrogance/hubris/Pride/Ego/etc. Beware of anyone who claims to have the perfect solution or answer to anything.

  • Kahreem Golden

    Caught this episode a bit late, but what a great wrap up for this year. Heading into a new year and my birthday in a few hours, the universe is a much better reason to celebrate (along with Dr. Tyson and Bill Nye doing anything). I’ll take Part 2 as a late birthday gift next week.

    • startalkradio

      Happy Birthday, Kahreem.

      • Kahreem Golden

        Well, I didn’t expect that. Whether I’m replying to Dr. Tyson or some random staffer, thank you. This is the best birthday gift of all.

        • startalkradio

          Not Neil, Kahreem, but not some random staffer either. This is Jeff, StarTalk Radio’s Social Media Director. And now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to finish wrapping your late birthday gift, Season 5 Time Capsule Part 2, to give to you this Sunday. And Happy New Year, too.

          • Kahreem Golden

            This is unreal. Jeff, thank you for the best birthday in the history of aging. Happy New Year, StarTalk Radio.
