Episode 45 - Finagling the Tree Bag
Topic: The Narcissism of Small Differences
This week, Merlin has a quiz for Dan to determine whether Ben Franklin, "The Immigrant Song," or Quantum Mechanics has the most cultural impact-as well as his teasing out Dan's go-to for uninstalling Android apps.
Paying attention to the same degree you care goes nicely with keeping a sense of humor. Especially about those small differences regarding couch cushions, pink spaceships, and Sgt. Pepper's.
The answers are Moby Dick, Julian calendars, ZoSo, chigger bites, and-yes-The Greater Nerd Theory.
