    Oh good this thread is still open

    Bill Maher is insane when it comes to medicine. It's not exactly an excuse to say "oh he just thinks they are all some type of live vaccine" because it doesn't fully explore his insanity.

    I stopped watching his show after every episode starting bringing up his fucking holistic doctor and complaining about the glue from the stickers on fruit and suggesting that the real problem with the health industry is "too many tests"


    Yes. Diagnostic medicine is evil. Tell us more about your holistic doctor, please.


    This all from a man who constantly complains about his yuppie audience, on camera, standing 20 feet from them.

    isolating variables and measuring their effects through repeated trials is just more Methodist Anti-Holistic Bigotry from Big Science

    what was peoples opions on LA Noire?

    It's a very, very good movie.

    Good in small sections, but overall far too long and meandering. I dont recommend playing it all at once, take it instead as 4 seperate narratives (its broken up as such so thats probably best). Also abandon any hope of your detective skills actually helping with cases, its pretty arbitrary and intentionally misleading when it comes to clues and outcomes, but once you kind of accept that you can just enjoy the brilliant rendition of the period and the little vignettes and stories.

    Also obligatory: Phelps is a giant douche, think of him as a subversive challenge to the traditional likeable/relatable/comprehensible protagonist most narratives go for

    LA Noire was great apart from the last 30min-1hour, which I thought was fucking shit

    Some of the bizarre character developments for Phelps were really off putting too.

    Bill Maher is the anti-vaccination fucknut

    the writer who likes him needs to try again

    He doesn't actually know what vaccines are (thinks they're all live culture), however he's completely correct about the specific vaccines that his most egregious rant was about

    That bird flu vaccine was a crock of shit and not even for the correct strain that was going around. He said "sometimes vaccines are a good idea, sometimes they aren't" then "the science isn't settled". He's flat wrong about number 2 and mostly wrong about number one. He believes "toxins" are responsible for problems in contexts where that doesn't make a lick of sense.

    He also believes that if America stopped eating pizza and drinking soda for half their caloric intake that universal healthcare would suddenly be super affordable - he's wrong about the reasons (believing healthy eating makes you disease proof) of course, because he's a bit cooky, but that is correct!

    His biggest hobby horse is overprescription of drugs and unnecessary surgery, maher is right about those. Prescription drugs kill hundreds of thousands of people a year because of misuse, it's a bigger problem than every illicit drug put together tenfold over
    .

    cite plz

    bill maher had a (apparently prestigious) doctor on his show a couple of years ago to interview and he spent 7 minutes telling him vaccines are bad and the doctor kept telling him he was wrong and bill maher basically ended it on "well we have to agree to disagree"

    I liked LA Noire a hell of a lot, although it started to drag a bit by the end

    But there's nothing like smashing up period cars in 1940s Los Angeles

    i blame not being able to watch the daily show here
    i saw an article that phare linked me a couple months back that had an anonymous member of the daily show staff say that stewart is anti-union and treats his writers like shit thanks to the writer's strike

    welp

    http://freethoughtblogs.com/camelswithhammers/2012/05/25/is-jon-stewart-anti-union/

    hes also likely full of shit and likes dennis miller and bill maher

    sooo
    hrm

    This guy sounds like he's completely full of shit. He's contradictory in most of his statements, he says he doesn't want to shit talk stewart then continues to do so, so he can continuously compare him to christ. Then he says no writer will speak well of him when that isn't true at all, and he makes a deal out of the rally...not being angry enough?

    Plus as pip said he thinks dennis miller is hilarious and bill mahr is great so

    I will go ahead and think he's an idiot with a grudge.

    Yeah okay wait a second Bill Maher is an anti-vaccination fucknut try again.

    That was his point? That the anti John stalwart guy is full of shit and has poor role models. Because bill maher

    Ooooh okay I thought you guys were saying Jon Stewart really liked those guys.

    Yeah I actually like Joe Biden

    his Daily Show interview went like this:

    1) Jon Stewart asked Joe Biden a question

    2) Joe Biden answered the question in a reasonable manner


    for reference, most interviews with politicians on the Daily Show work more like Tony Blair's:

    1) Jon Stewart asked Tony Blair a question

    2) a bunch of words fell out of Tony Blair's mouth, none of which really had anything to do with the question at hand
