it's "SCIENCE!"!

you stupid hipster.
James Woods - 2014-06-29
Since we cant aaaaaactually explain anything, technically they're one in the same.

SolRo - 2014-06-29
im starting to think you assholes are trying to give me a science aneurysm.

memedumpster - 2014-06-29

Am I doing this right?

No, wait, it's not really real if it's nano, so FUCK PRETEND NOT BUT NANO... CARBON...

Fuck this, I'm going back to hating religion.

We shouldn't really bug SolRo since he's so science.

Azmo23 - 2014-06-29
this type of science "journalism" with its feigned idiocy is depressing
b-b-b-billions of tubes? are there g-g-ghosts in there?
hang on while I count them all nyuk nyuk *slide whistle & bell*

I don't know.
I like how exciting the technology is and all the sound effects really hammer home that this is no joke. The future is really happening.

I don't know about nanotubes but that don't look like no hipster.

Solro, you're giving me a hipster aneurysm.

infinite zest - 2014-06-30
fuckin' nanotubes how do they work.

Syd Midnight - 2014-07-04
you start with normal chemistry and then carbon busts into the room and is all like "fuck you i'm carbon i can do whatever the fuck i want" and all the other elements are like fuuuuuck

The money shot is at the end of the video. At per gram, there is no way a whole boat is made of this stuff.

It's Bush's fault.

5 awesome starts for Nova, 5 evil stars for David Pogue. I can barely stand to watch nova anymore thanks to that hammy ass-clown

This is listed in the DSM as Alda's Disease. Science hosts are prone to lapsing into a fugue state where they are unable to understand what is being explained to them and regress to a childlike state.

All this shit is so cool. Shame it all gets patented and privatize to where it's so expensive that no one can ever actually make it useful on a wide scale.
urbanelf - 2014-06-29
Things made under valuable patents tend to get wide distribution.

SolRo - 2014-06-29
that's right, useful things are only used if they're profitable.

otherwise fuck it.

bongoprophet - 2014-06-30
nanotubes are the new stencil buffers

more like nano pubes

I liked Nova better before they started to pander and dumb everything down.

For a while I was wondering if maybe I just remembered Nova being more intelligent when I was a kid because I was, you know, a kid. But no, I've gone back and watched a bunch of the old episodes, and holy shit the show used to be goddamn intelligent.

What are they even trying to do with this shit, anyway? People who don't give a shit about science aren't going to be watching science shows on PBS, and people who do give a shit about science are just going to be annoyed by being pandered to and are just going to find out about something interesting and read up about it on Wikipedia or whatever.

On the plus side, the bit where he's actually playing with nanotubes is great. Until the fucking punchline, complete with slide whistle sound effect. What the fuck.

I had to compromise between five-starring for fucking amazing science-wizardry happening as we speak, and one-starring for this horrible "HERP DERP I'M SO RELATABLY CLUELESS MATH SURE IS HARD!" Mike Rowe wannabe that just sucks all the goddamned air out of the whole thing.

If I was on that team I'd be fighting the urge to wrap those invisible strands around his neck and pull until his empty head rolled right off.

I only submitted this ridiculous hot guy talking about nanotubes to get SolRo to post more anti-hipster/anti-nanotube vitriol. I find it extremely funny and I hope it never stops. Because I intend to never let it die.

baleen - 2014-07-04
I meant "host guy" but he's kind of hot in a teaches-at- Degrassi-Junior-High kind of way I guess.
