« on: November 18, 2008, 10:58:01 PM »
We are starting to produce our year end show for 2008 and if you have any suggestions please let me know.  Anything like show segments, quotes, guests, favorite news items, skeptical jackass of the year etc.  If you do send us any ideas from the show please let us know what the show # is and if possible what time it took place in the show.

Thanks for your help  ;D

Skeptical Jackassette of the year has to be Jenny McCarthy...dishonorable mentions to the large gaggle of fools that listen to her without question.

Ya, I can't really think of anyone more persistent and pernicious than McCarthy.  VenomFangX gets the "Ms Congeniality" prize for being forced to apologize to Thunderf00t ().

Of course I vote Tyson as Guest of the Year, but I would have said that even if he was never on the show...

I think the coolest news story of the year is the one you're going to talk about later today:  We've seen extrasolar planets!!!  The only other thing that could compete in my heart (the LHC) broke :'(
(but it'll be 'coolest news story of 2009,' I'm sure :D).

I really liked the live shows, and all the interviews at TAM were great.  If I wasn't such a Tyson fanboy, I'd have to call Guest of the Year for George Hrab (ep157).

1. New medical claim of the year. (Laser therapy for smokers)

2. Fastest debunking of .... oops we don';t need to debunk this one.... Bigfoot in the freezer.

3. Is Casey Anthony truthful? - HA!

4. General Motors and Ford, and Chrystler need to be bailed out to continue to pay their CEOs massive wages.. but not just the CEOs now... the pensions of the former CEOh-ohs.

5. Kevin Tredeau -nuff said - again..and again and again.

6. Jenny McCarthy strangly silent after her appearance  (where was it?) and how all those (were there any people there?) people stood up and march down (where was it?) ... in protest of vaccines.

7. Prop 8/Ammendment 2/Ammendement 102 (az)

8. "Gimme a break! You want someone with a name like Ba-RRACk - Hussein - OBAMA?" - woman on the back of a 4-wheeler who looks 80 but is 27, and a third man is sitting behind her, while the man driving the vehicle blathers toothlessly.

9. Elvis is still dead.

10. Einstein's theories of special and general relativity are conitnued to be challenged by only the brightest, and dimmest minds that our last 2 centuries have ever known.

Please, please PLEASE feature Oprah as the Jackass of the year! I am disgusted by how she gets sucked in week after week by these nut cases. Exposure on Oprah's show adds legitimacy for the average viewer to ever nutcake argument out there. With a MINIMUM of research (certainly she can afford that!), she can weed out the crackpots and at least give the opposing proven scientific view to balance them out....but she never does! She provides such easy pickings, just go to any of her episodes, even the medical personnel she uses are people who are not well respected by the rest of the medical community! PLEASE, PLEASE PLEASE, she is in a position to do SO much damage!!!!!

Have a skeptical rap-battle.

And give a shout out to the SGU Forum, because you love us so.

Especially me.

Just sayin'.

This is sooo Jenny McCarty's year.  She shoulders some of the blame for those measles and mumps outbreaks.  Oprah's year was last year when she featured The Secret, Homeopathy, and John "Cold Readin'" Edward.  She was too busy with the election to turn the Oprah enthusiasm machine toward pseudoscience.
