Humor in Science and Theology

This seems relevant, given all the conspiracy theories going around at present (It’s from 2014). It starts off as “why aluminum foil is great for preserving your leftovers”, and then becomes “why you need an aluminum foil hat” (the answer is “because most conspiracy theories are true”).

Weird Al is revered at our house. “Foil” is one of our anthems. In a family where the two heads are both state employees, “Mission Statement” is also particularly poignant. Watch a whiteboard version of it on Youtube, if you are not familiar with it.

Another one on ad algorithms being confused about me: after searching for a bunch of Google Maps routes for birding (as well as other travel information for the ASA 2022 - American Scientific Affiliation (asa3.org) meeting in San Diego, Google seems to be confused about where I live: I’ve gotten ads for a California democratic primary (just one, thankfully), a rollercoaster in San Diego (makes more sense), and Air France (no clue why).

Now if someone would come up to him and say “I agree with you”. That would produce a liar paradox [I agree with him, but he disagrees with me, which means that I disagree with me, which means that he agrees with me, which means I agree with him, and so on].
