An afternoon with my sister

Recently my sister asked me if she could interview me for her YouTube channel. Rather silly (as brother and sister can be) we discuss metaphysics, politics, the environment, population, eugenics, Nazis, the Loch Ness Monster, and our father's legacy.

Oh, and I forgot – zombies.

Take your serious thinking cap off to watch this very silly video. 60 min.


(I got some of my facts wrong, but it's hard when it's all on the fly and you're being silly)
  • The "hobbit" (homo floresiensis) is on Flores, not Sumatra. Sumatra contains the Orang Pendek.
  • Used the term glaciers when I should have said ice sheets. 
  • Russia, Mongolia, Canada, Greenland, and Antarctica don't add up to half the land mass of the Earth. 
  • There is no forced abortion in India. There is coerced sterilization.
  • Nikola Tesla did not invent alternating current (that houses use today) in the early 20th century as I said. AC current existed since the 19th century. 


  1. I look forward to watching this unique, all-encompassing interview between these fascinating siblings, but surely the philosopher John Locke would not like to be confused with the Loch Ness Monster, a cryptid, reputedly a large unknown animal that inhabits Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands? ;-) Cheers and kind regards from the silliest of Royal Court Jesters, Frankie

  2. Ya'll were simply mawwwvelous. Very fun! Do continue - I like the idea of a weekly talk show :)
