So, Dan Carlin's podcast "Common Sense" has been talked about a little bit on FB today, so I wanted to bring up... the Common Sense with Dan Carlin Facebook group. It is, shall we say, a treasure trove of asshats with a few okay sorts.
What kind of people are in there? Well, let's just say they're already REALLY MAD at Roger and Nigel, they just don't know it yet.
It's kind of hilarious, because the most vocal members of the group are well below the bar set by the podcast they claim to be fans of. Carlin himself is not active in the group.
A few standouts:
Fred, who thinks about global warming every day. The kind of guy who thinks that climate change is not real because Al Gore flies in airplanes. If humanity was killed by an asteroid, Fred would be ecstatic because at least it would mean that the climate scientists were wrong about climate change being the thing that kills us.
Mat, who is the Lord Regent of Strawmania. He can strawman literally any argument you make. It's almost uncanny.
Cam, who I just discovered today is a Dawkins apologist and thinks Ahmed deserved what he got for that clock. He's super mad that people came out in support after the incident.
I'd been keeping it to myself for a while but I decided to share the fun. Being sincere and reasonable is definitely the right way to go with these guys.
Oh wow. Winter break is coming, and I'm gonna get bored and antsy.
