RE: BullShit
yeah I grabbed them all off youtube and burnt them. I'd buy them if they were available on disc.
Funny stuff. I also grabbed the one on mother teresa because it was more informative.
I enjoy their humor even though I think Penn is a bit pompous. He's still funny and usually bright.

RE: BullShit
I used to have every season of Bullshit, and I dearly loved it, but some of their "facts" are... well, you should definitely double-check them. For instance, they created an episode about second-hand smoke being bullshit and they cited one "fact"... which despite coming from the EPA's website was bogus, and they've since recanted.

Another big mistake is from an episode where they were trying to prove that porn was a good thing. They tried to prove that porn reduced rape by drawing a correlation between states with high internet usage --- positing that porn was the biggest thing that people used the internet for right after shopping on EBay, which is wrong --- and states with low rates of rape. But if you look at the same information that they did you find that the correlation not only doesn't exist, but they seem to have picked states at random. WTF?

There are some episodes that make a grand point and have all the facts on their side (cheerleading, prostitution, and recycling to name a few) but from time to time you have to keep an eye on them... they admit that they're biased as fuck, and sometimes that means biased presentation (*cough* NASA episode *cough*) or biased data (most of their "bullshit" experiments, which are often done with a tiny experimental group of less than 10 and with experiments ended as soon as the data has swung in their favor).

My girlfriend is mad at me. Perhaps I shouldn't have tried cooking a stick in her non-stick pan.

Damn... shows how hard I looked. I probably typed in "episodes of bullshit for free online" or some such nonsense. I suppose I'll have to look in a store or two now. Dammit.
