Science for Dummies

We were the first on the scene back in July when the Large Hadron Collider threatened our very way of life (and you can thank us for saving the planet - when the truth comes out there'll be a whole bunch of embarrassed Swiss dudes and half of a cow costume). The LHC had a rough couple of months, fizzling and fluttering like an Eli Manning deep out upon its' initial test firing, but as the clip below shows, the good people (read: evil, scheming, would-be world dominators) at CERN have a sense of humor about it.

Rob, the Apostrophe Police would like to have a word with you. Sorry.

Rhymenocerous said...

Yeah Rob. Your in big trouble.

rob said...

my b'ad. i spent a lot of brain cells on embedding the youtube. wont' happen again. rapping scientists, though. sick.

Whitney said...

Dropping science like Galileo dropped the orange. Actually, doesn't this clip remind you of the video for "Intergalactic"?

rob said...

hey, whit. apostrophe police called - they need to see you over in the wheelhouse comments. something about glass houses.

zoltan said...

I bet this is what it's like to go to MIT.

Is Le'Ron McClain on the Apostrophe Police Squad?

TJ said...

With La’roi Glover?

Rhymenocerous said...

Yes. And D'Brickashaw Ferguson is their Rush Chair.

TJ said...

D'Qwell Jackson is Pledge Marshall.

zoltan said...

I know a guy who volunteered at a local hospital. Someone came in and he asked her how to pronounce her name, which was spelled La-ia. She replied "Ladashia." You pronounce the dash.

So is D'Qwell pronounced Dapostrophequell?

Greg said...

I play rugby with a guy named J'son. It's pronounced "Jason". He's their social chair. Surprisingly, he's not "classy" or "historic".

rob said...

la-ia is my new favorite name. that's awesome.

Mark said...

You pronounce the dash? That's gold, Jerry. Gold!

rob said...

anyone else think blake griffin seems like a bit of a dick?

zoltan said...

The Mackinaw peaches Jerry! The Mackinaw peaches!!

PenisGriffin said...

TJ you best not leave out the one and only Tim Kilgore.....

TJ said...

Yes, for those who remember that name, it seems the esteemed PenisGriffin ran into him the other night...

Rhymenocerous said...

Did PenisGriffin accidentally knee him in the head? Was he still smoking menthol cigarettes? Does he still talk like a Mississippi blues man?

zoltan said...

I thought Killgore was funny. No matter what I said to him, his response would be "Rabbazza gza zhub zhub, smokin' weed, rabbazza rabbazza heh heh HEH!"

rob said...

may need to revisit my choice of career:

BreakingNewsOn The Washington Court of Appeals has ruled that teachers in the state can have sex with 18-year-old students.

TJ said...

Anybody seen Dave?

Whitney said...

He said he was "going to Mount Rainier." Not sure if he meant the place or the prom queen.

rob said...

this is a pretty neat story from mid-majority by way of mgl:

Dave said...

i wonder how much of the CERN budget was spent on that video-- it's painfully long for it's genre (educational science rap) and i did it first-- and better-- with "anna kournikova (you make my heart go supernova)" -- but i guess those people actually know their physics.

PenisGriffin said...

Kilgore is still 4 ft. 7 and still loves the dive into the herb... not shocking at all is the fact he is a lawyer, i am a proud owner of his business card

rob said...

dave - you send me the url for the anna video and it'll go live on gtb at the first opportunity. even an mp3 would be acceptable now that whitney figured out the magic music machine.

Marlin said...

He cleans up well for the firm picture. . .

Rhymenocerous said...

He graduated from W&M?

Mark said...

I really hope that all of you have seen the latest youtube posted over EDSBS.

Whitney said...

Nice of Dave to throw the Apostrophe Police officers off Rob's scent with a misplaced mark of his own. A good friend covering his buddy's tracks.

rob said...

i believe there's still an outstanding warrant on you, sir. don't make mark make a citizen's arrest.

rob said...

scott pioli to the chiefs, and belichick left wondering, 'was it something i said'?

Shlara said...

1. How in the world do you guys find these videos? Or, better, have the TIME to find these videos?

2. Even though I don't often comment, I always read GTB every day becuase you guys make me laugh. My day is not complete wihtout a visit to GTB, Cake Wrecks and the Yahoo horoscopes. All three = pure comedy.

rob said...

if you're not watching memphis/tulsa, well, you've made a good decision.

and shlara, knowing that we're making the world a better place, if only for one person, makes all the blood, sweat, and tears worth it.

Mark said...

Speak for yourself Rob. Making the days easier for people I've never met does absolutely nothing for me. But being your friend on facebook, well, that's a different story.

rob said...

oh, that's a whole different thing altogether. the whole facebook phenomenon is still a bit surreal to me. it's no gtb.

rob said...

suck it, calipari.

Mark said...

Furthermore, why are you crying and bleeding when you work on G:TB?

TJ really needs to walk you through imbedding videos. I don't think you're doing it right.

rob said...

i'm definitely not doing it right. you kids and your 'technology' and 'tattoos'.

is joey dorsey cashing an nba check?

Mark said...

Yeah, he's sitting on Houston's bench.

Mark said...

Oh yeah, don't forget our 'hip hop'...

rob said...

my favorite part of facebook so far is the picture of the shitload of jager bottles in your fridge.

rob said...

damn. memphis at the buzzer.

Mark said...

Suck it Rob.

- John Calipari

Shlara said...

It blows my mind that Rod Strickland is an assistant coach at Memphis--he wasn't exactly the role model type back in the Wiz days

Mark said...

Holy Fucking Shit:

Jodie Meeks had 54 points on Tennessee tonight. He shot 15-22 overall, 10-15 on 3s and 14-14 from the line.

That is unfuckingbelievable.
