    It is said that bigger fleas have little fleas and so on ad infinitum.

    And turtles all the way down notwithstanding, when you get small enough it becomes impossible to tell the fleas from the dogs, or vice versa.

    I've noticed a small trend of late among the male media entertainers of our era. A few of these have attempted to somehow include their female counterparts in their shows.

    To be specific, science communicators on YT:
    - John Michael Godier has someone who impersonates a bolshy Brummy bint of an AI. Toe-curling.
    - Felix "What about it?" Schlong tried to include his wife by advertising a new channel for her. Disastrous lack of personality.
    - Isaac Arthur fares best by relegating his new wife to reading out questions that he could answer on Sunday's Q&A. Far too sweet and apparently uncomprehending to cause any trouble.

    Stephen Colbert, on the other hand, regularly has his wife sitting in as the audience for The Late Show. She admirably fills the role of an Ed McMahon to his Carson.

    Cheaper than hiring somebody. Longstanding principle.

    Knut is the most danish name I can think of.

    My response to the Fermi Paradox I call "The Hansel and Gretel Solution". We are being fattened up.

    Perhaps more subtle and long range than that.

    I have the same general quality of gut reaction to the theory of a multiverse as I do to the theory of panspermia.
    Both are cheap and lazy.

    If we discover 'alien' life, the first question will be; are we related?

    This reminds me of the thinking of some of the Steorn fans in the old days: "It must be true because it will be so wonderful to have." Samesame for the idea going around theoretical physics that beautiful=physical.

    The facts do not care about anybody's moral, ethical or aesthetic judgement about them.

    That's not my point. When the line of "the vaccine is harmless" is incessantly touted, it will push the skeptics over the edge when unforeseen effects emerge.

    Would it not be better to say "as far as we know, the vaccine should have no adverse effects"?

    'The infertility of pornspermia' is one of those -hopefully- unwritten books of and off our lifetime/beyond.
