The Big Summit Reaction

Most of the reactions I've seen of the big summit between the US and North Korea agreed with the notion that Pres. Trump got played by Kim Jong Un. It appears America agreed to do more than North Korea did. Kim merely made the same promise he and his father before him have been making since 1992. So, was Trump the only President to have been played?
Well, time will tell.
Here's the opinion by Nicolas Kristoff that I mentioned on the show.
I also mentioned a video montage demonstrated how Fox News folks did an about face when it came to our President talking to the North Korean dictator. Click here to enjoy the 180.
I also talked about Rope-A-Dope. I was trying to make a little comparison with the summit and the way Muhammad Ali handled George Foreman in 1974's Rumble In The Jungle.

A Dimland Radio Science Hero: House MD

I never watched the show, but when I saw this scene I knew I had a Science Hero for the show. Having never watched the show, I don't know if the entire series was as pro science-based medicine as this scene suggests, but this scene does hit hard at the anti-vax ridiculousness. For this scene, the writers/producers of House MD are Dimland Radio Science Heroes.
It's Not True: The Kid In A Cage

Yes, the image does show a crying child in a cage. No, the child has not been trapped in a cage by ICE agents bent on tearing immigrant families apart. The picture is from a demonstration against the immigration policies of the Trump administration.
Snopes has the scoop.
Finding Bigfoot Ends

After 100 episodes, the Animal Planet reality series Finding Bigfoot has come to an end. The show was successful in that it went 100 episodes and in making the phrase "gone squatchin'' popular. It wasn't very successful in finding any bigfoots, though.
Oh, well. No one's perfect.
A Dimland Radio Pedantic Moment One: Hands On?

An ad at the end of a CinemaSins YouTube video on Everything Wrong With Ratatouille stated that at Full Sail University, a school for film-making, students get hands on experience. They gain real world experience by going beyond the classroom. Students can study online... Hang on. How do they get hands on experience online?
A Dimland Radio Pedantic Moment Two: Um, That's Not Mary Poppins

The image shows a famous scene from the Sound Of Music, the text refers to a song from the Sound Of Music, but then refers to Mary Poppins. Mary Poppins wasn't in the Sound Of Music. 
Three Cool Things
3) The Minnesota Skeptics had their meet up, which is always cool.

2) The Washington Capitals finally won a Stanley Cup. That's good, because no team that represents a city or state that's only experience with ice is as something to put in their drinks should every win the Cup. (But it would have been cool if the Vegas Golden Knights had won while in their first year of existence.)

1) The photograph above shows how a basketball could appear to be flat.
