Carl Sagan, "The Meat Planet"

>> Friday, December 02, 2011

This. Oh dear gods. This. This is the best thing ever. I am laughing. I am laughing so hard my ass has popped right off the load bearings and is bouncing around on the floor like a pair of tetherballs. I cannot breathe. I just cannot breathe at all.

I just processed on my last viewing that they've misidentified a portrait of Copernicus as being one of Galileo. And I just don't care. This video still murders me.

(And it's a CGI of a Voyager, not a Viking, still.)

Billions and billions of A-1 possibilities.

Hey, glad you liked the video man. I knew someone would figure out it wasn't Galileo eventually, altho kudos on the voyager/viking thing. There just wasn't any portraits of Galileo in Cosmos & if we'd used a still image it wouldn't look right with the overall quality of the video. Plus Carl doesn't say "Copernicus" in Pale Blue Dot, or if he does it's in a tone that didn't fit. Just glad the horrible dream of a Meat Planet is finally getting out there anyway.

Thank you for making the video, and I hope my comments didn't sound picky: "The Meat Planet" really is one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

Excellent periodic table, too: well-played.
