Yuri's night.

Phil got a little confused on the story of Gagarin's marriage. Gagarin was married to Valentina Goryacheva, not Valentina Tereshkova

  • Our Tales of the Paranormal section: "Mutants live in the underworld of Moscow."
  • Phil is six months into his "No Mammals" diet. This is an ethical decision on his part. 
  • Stephen points out that low carb dieting would be incredibly hard without meat. 


  • Stephen agreed to try a mammal-free low carb diet and exercise program. But he suspects he will get tired of chicken and fish.
  • We marked the passing of Charlton Heston with a quote from a certain dystopian sci-fi movie.

    Phil quoted Michael Anissimov:

    ...everyone will be a vegan soon, if for nothing else, that in vitro meat will be better and cheaper.
