Lol, poor you. I will admit that Alex Jones/David Icke et al entertain me no end. Tell 'em I did 11/9, I don't mind. I was in a video store at the time, but the truth doesn't matter afaik.
if constructive debate is allowed to progress, better ideas will ultimately supplant worse ideas.

If you're wondering what he connection is he started with the "BBC reporter says WT7 has collapsed with it standing behind her" video... *sigh*

I have huge respect for John Peel because the guy actually would bring on relatively obscure British metal bands, even ones that are really underground.

There's even Anaal Nathrakh John Peel sessions. Anaal Nathrakh! A band that has songs titled "Between Shit and Piss, We are Born" and "When Humanity is Cancer" and John Peel still brought them on. That's a man who could respect a wide range of music regardless of whether it would be considered controversial or not.

RIP.

John Peel was a national treasure, and it's tough to imagine another network that would've let him continue doing his thing.

Oh, and if you want to screw with the Alex Jones nut, explain how he is powerless to do anything and that no matter how much he exposes whatever given conspiracy he wants, it won't change anything.

They have a superhero complex. Shutting that down should cause him to nerd rage.

I know he's an atheist so I compared his arguments to those of a creationist and threw in UFO "true believers" too. It's a fair comparison, really. All they do is try to look for anomalies in the accepted story and somehow assume that this proves their case.

While we're linking to great BBC science shows, the recent Horizon about human perception is absolutely fascinating.
