I wonder what that galaxy did to piss off Big Poppa G.

Wait just a minute-You expect me to believe-That all this misbehaving-Grew from one enchanted tree? And helpless to fight it-We should all be satisfied-With this magical explanation-For why the living die-And why it's hard to be a decent human being - David Bazan

He is a pretty awesome guy, sort of like a modern Carl Sagan.

Oh, now I know him. I think I watched a documentary with him about Big Bang theory about a year ago. Not a big fan, to be honest. It was excessively dumbed down, to the point where he was fielding pretend phone calls from his mother and winking at the camera.
