JLB Chats #11 ‘Contrarian Clues’ (17-Jun-2019)

June 17, 2019

Do some people argue about things purely for the attention? Even on topics as important as War and History? Is it possible that anybody has ever weighed the entire earth with heavy balls in a shed, and if not, why was JLB the first person in all of recorded history to point this out? Is the progress of technology something to worry about, or are TV shows like 'Black Mirror' sending people down the wrong path?

Late Sunday evening, 16-Jun-2019 (Malaysia time), I made another appearance in the Fakeologist audiochat Discord server, to share my thoughts on all of this and much, much more.

This podcast features that discussion, mirrored from the Fakeologist audiochat. Please forgive the choppy audio in the final third of the call. Not sure what caused it. The first two-thirds of the call are not quite as bad, though.
