civilization continues to crumble

So I'm here watching this stupid Mayan 2012 doomsday prophecy show on The History Channel (who should be considering mass seppuku for this a-scientific travesty) when less then forty-five minutes into the two-hour show, the dumbass poser who just a half-hour before had introduced himself as a "professional adventurer" says to his new employer, as they are sitting aboard the 30-foot fishing vessel in which they are going to cross four hundred miles of southern Pacific Ocean, "I probably should have brought this up before, but I'm not, uh, a real 'seafaring salt'" to which his boss says "you don't do well on the open ocean?" which elicits the response "I tend to avoid even things that are wet" accompanied by some decidedly unprofessional adventurer-type nervous laughter.

Nice try, Indiana Nocojones.

As long as fuckwads like this get presented as people involved in doing credible science instead of the masquerading charlatans they are, this country will continue to deteriorate at a faster and faster pace.

On something called the "History" channel no less.

In 20 they'll be showing this knucklhead as a turning point, off the cliff.

Happy NY, 24 days in!
