BMU #336 Now Online!

Well I was accused of going on at length with this week's program, but there are always something that will set just about anyone off, and it just so happens that there were a few this week!  But all in all, I didn't fall asleep this week, so I must have been interesting!

I start off with a funny one liner that xnewsman sent in.

From there I have one of Family Guy's segways that may not have much to do with science and fiction, but everything to do with supercilious public radio! If you can't poke fun at yourself?  You know? 

Mark Webb adds another story in his interstellar government functionary arc.  The Earth has been destroyed and the Humans that were lucky enough to be off planet are now only capable of the lowest form of menial labor...Mark Webb's The Devil Wears Shapeless Ugly Garments, Covered in Dog

The Earth is far from quiet in space.  Not the spurious noises caused by man but the various other magnetic and electrical noises that are constantly emitted by the globe.

 You will be amazed at what it sounds like!
Earth/Sky again spins up with some fascinating facts about Pole Wander, which I had never heard about but it is fascinating.  From there I take us right into a new Star Trek trivia!
This week's review is the movie "Battleship" based on, of all things, the board game of the same name...oh yes.

China has the idea that virtual supermarkets are the thing!  13 thousand square feet of empty racks filled with virtual goods!  I am serious!  And you won't believe the company that has invested heavily in this idea.....

Finally,  from the fertile imagination of Jason Kahn id the newest episode of In Plain Sight.  This week episode 13 "Home to Roost.

These and other subject this week on Beam Me Up # 336
