    I hate the host of Futureweapons

    like he's a badass and everything, but he whispers everything


    I like that one with Bear Grylls

    there is a clip on Discovery.com of him pissing on his bandana to keep cool

    also:

    Dogfights. So badass.


    Bear Grylls is cool, but I kinda like "Survivorman" more for some reason.

    Also: I was randomly flipping channels one night and caught the tail-end of one of those 'I Shouldnt Be Alive" things, but it was a special episode of real-world survival or something.

    Anyway, they had an active Special Forces guy as the segment host and he did this full jungle survival walk-through. How to find foods that are safe to eat, where to find water, what kind of equipment to pack. He was a 'jungle and guerrila warfare specialist', actively on duty....so like, the real deal Rambo.

    He fit his entire gear load-out into a hip satchel and said he could live in the jungles and mountains of Laos, Cambodia, Brazil indefinitely.

    Dude was a bad a s s, and im like 'man why don't they give THIS dude a Discovery Channel show!?'

    I mean, seriously. Check this shit out.
    Telecommunications exist because the Normans wore stirrups at the Battle of Hastings- a simple advance that caused a revolution in the increasingly expensive science of warfare. Europe turned its attention to making money to wage wars. As mine shafts were dug deeper, they became flooded, stimulating scientists like Galileo to investigate vacuums, air pressure and other natural laws to mine deeper silver. This led to the discovery of electricity and magnetism’s relationship and to the development of radio, and deep space telecommunications that may enable contact with galactic civilizations.

    The mythbusters should go on deadliest catch and try to prove that crabbing isn't deadly. I used to love mythbusters but now they are just going for myths that i have never heard of or cared about or you immediately realize they are false within two seconds.

    Although that Jaws episode a season back was pretty cool. Bring back shark week and add it into deadliest catch have Jamie and Adam on the ship. I think everyone would watch that.

    I mean, the battle of hastings wasn't really decided by the use of stirrups.

    It also didn't "revolutionize" war into being a for-profit model. that happened long, long before the battle of hastings.



    I still wanna see that episode 'cause I've got a 1066 boner.

    okay, you're taking a rough three sentence description of a one hour documentary and saying it is full of shit.

    trust me, the dude does his homework, lots and lots and lots of these things are directly or indirectly connected, and he does a great fucking job of linking everything in a very cool way.

    Sounds stupid if you ask me.

    Cause and effect - Bear Grylls is too hot, so he pisses all over his shirt and wraps in around his head.

    Cause and effect - Bear Grylls is hot on a makeshift raft in the pacific ocean, he hops in the water to cool off. He encounters 3 huge tiger sharks, hops back on the raft after kicking them all in the fucking snout.

    I'm just sayin' that the use of stirrups by the Norman's wasn't the revolutionizing factor in the battle of Hastings, nor did it lead to the "for profit" nature of wars.

    I just... I don't see those things as being connected to that battle.

    then perhaps you should watch the show and see how they might be connected instead of dismissing them due to the tiny paragraph that probably wasn't even written by anyone who actually worked on the show.

    I mean, once William invaded England there was, if I recall correctly, a relatively stable period of time in which revenues in England grew in conjunction with better management (vis a vis the Domesday book) and a stabilization of relations (such as not having Pretenders launching attacks from Normandy, as was the case with Edward and his brother, nor having Normandy be a rallying point for the Norse.).

    Hell yeah. James Burke is rad and very engaging. I also remember this other show that I can't recall the name of but it was mostly about nature and the environment and it was presented by this asian american guy. I can't remember his name but I think Ray was either his first or last name. I can see his face clearly in my mind but I can't remember his full name or the name of the show. He was hella cool also.

    CURSES TO MY WORK FILTER!

    I really want to see this guys stuff. It's exactly the sort of historical study I want to go into.

    God, I wrote an essay last year about the disconnection between Thomas Jefferson's political philosophy and political actions, while relating it to Thomas Paine and other revolutionary era radicals while putting it in the framework of the instability of early america mixed with vestigal british pomp and how all of that mixed together to form Manifest Destiny and the inevitable US foreign involvement.

    It was pretty fun.
