Geek/CounterGeek – #47: Katrina And The Gravitational Waves

Scientists have confirmed the existence of gravitational waves. It proves a theory that was proposed by Einstein around 100 years ago.

The Russians have announced that they will do their best impression of a Michael Bay movie, and try to blow up the asteroid Apophis as it passes by the Earth in 2036.

Speaking of Michael Bay movies and blowing stuff up, Transformers 5, 6 and 7 have their release dates, just in case you’re still interested in that kind of thing.

Plus, there was big news in the Star Trek universe. Bryan Fuller has been tapped as the showrunner for the new CBS Star Trek series that will headline their new streaming channel. Fuller is a life-long Star Trek fan and former writer for both DS9 and Voyager so the news has Keith and Elliott both more bullish on the project.

Each week Keith Conrad and Chicago’s Top Geek Elliott Serrano debate a controversial topic in contemporary geekery: Kirk vs. Picard? Was Douglas Quaid dreaming in Total Recall? No topic is off limits.

Gabatron Morning Briefing – 1-20-16: The Crying Game

A reporter asked Donald Trump if he ever cries. Trump said that he’s “not a big crier” because he likes to “Get things done.” So apparently he hasn’t had the same feelings software update as Hillary Clinton.

Drew Peterson is asking the Illinois Supreme Court to throw out his murder conviction. Peterson is arguing he was denied a fair trial due to the use of so-called hearsay statements. He may be a scumbag, and maybe he did it, but is it really fair to make a law specifically to convict someone?

I weep for the future: According to a new poll, nearly 10% of college graduates think Judge Judy is on the Supreme Court. Clearly that was money well-spent.

Good news, Manti Te’o has a real live girlfriend now. She actually exists this time, and he’s taken pictures with her just to prove it.

Pearl Jam has announced that they’ll play two shows at Wrigley Field in August. It’s a little surprising they didn’t announce that at the Cubs convention, since Eddie Vedder has latched onto them like a barnacle. At this point they are basically having concerts at Wrigley every single day there is not a Cubs game.

Michael Bay says that he’ll be making a Transformers 5, and it will film in Chicago. Production will be later this year, and it will be released in 2017. Haven’t we all suffered enough?
