Fossil Fuels and Dinosaur Farts

So they start talking about renewable energy and I guarantee you most people start thinking magic, that after you use the electricity, somehow you can go get it and use it again. After you use the coal that produces the electricity, somehow you can renew it, you can get it to renew itself. That’s what they think. But what is it? Now, Richard, are you still there? Did Richard go? I don’t understand what his point was about the methane on Titan. (interruption) Oh, he’s counting methane as a fossil fuel. Okay. Okay. All right. Okay. Okay. Okay. Well, and he may have a point.

Here’s the thing. He was pointing out here that on one of the moons of… Was it Saturn? Saturn? On Titan, they have found lakes of methane. And what Richard’s basically asking is, “Well, where the hell were the dinosaurs there?” I don’t know about you, folks, but I know some of you people grew up thinking that some of the blood in the human body was blue. I didn’t. I was never taught that, and I only learned that people were taught that (in large numbers) in the past month, on this program.

I forget how it came up, but Snerdley and Dawn were both taught that blood is blue and you can see it in the veins. The veins are blue and there’s blue blood in there. And I could not believe it! They grew up thinking there’s blue blood in the human body. I said, “Have you ever seen anybody bleed blue blood?” It hits the oxygen and turns red, is what they told them. It hits the oxygen; turns red. It instantly turns red, the blue blood. They’re telling me now they were taught that. Okay. So, I was never taught that.
