Brian explains Pokemon Go to Armand. “It is a game that exists like the map of the real world. [The developers] took Google maps and a game map so you can see your character moving around in the real world. The point of the game is to walk around and capture these Pokemon and level them up, readying yourself to battle other people and their Pokemon.”
Brian goes on to say, “If you walk around downtown Saint Louis at any time of day, you will find someone playing this game. Just last night my wife and I went, and there were at least thirty other people walking around playing Pokemon Go.”
Armand brings up the point of people dying while playing this game. A few people have been hit by cars; others have been robbed and even attacked.
The stock for Pokemon has gone up $9 billion since the release of this game five days ago.
Warm Jupiters have companions
Armand exclaims to Big E that he found a topic of discussion for his show Surreal Talk. “What they thought would happen was these warm Jupiters would form outside the solar system and they would get caught and kick out all the other planets, but apparently that is not what happened; they do have companion planets.”
A Warm Jupiter is something cooler than a hot Jupiter. It is just like our Jupiter just a little further away.
Is Global Warming a hoax?
Armand goes back and forth with the young buck in the studio, Todd, about global warming. While Big E keeps the debate under control, the two go back and forth, each of them making good points when in the end they both stick with their original opinions on global warming.
Todd states, “As you add more carbon dioxide to the air, there is more heat kept, and I am just investigating different possibilities how light could transfer different amounts of heat based on the composition of our atmospheric gas.”
Big E asks, “What is different now than when the dinosaurs were here? My point is that it goes up and down on the cycle, so if we're having global warming, do you believe it is man made?”
