    Holy crap, I miss this show.

    I try to work the line, “A candle is placed on a map of Cornwall, and the scientist begins his incantation,” into every rambling monologue I do about pseudoscience.

    Also ghosty, but somewhat more serious, and from one of the best goddam minds alive on the planet: http://tinyurl.com/cu2wkw8. If you haven’t read/watched anything by Adam Curtis, get on that!

    Lol, what did I just watch? I’m pretty sure the “Gloriette 80″ was the machine from the Rocky Horror Picture Show.

    Look Around You is one of the most brilliant shows ever written that no one’s freaking heard of. HOW CAN I MAKE JOKE REFERENCES IF NO ONE GETS THEM??

    Heeeey there, little mouse…

    Hehe! Thanks for reminding me of this wonderful series! My favorite video of this type is not actually a Look Around You video, it’s Birds of Britain. But I like Maths and Water a lot too :) So, watching Ghosts now.
