Brian Cox - rock star physicist?

Post by Rum » Fri Apr 20, 2018 9:14 pm

Mrs Rum spotted this and knowing my interests asked if I fancied going next Feb (early booking recommended!).

I took a look and two tickets would cost us 105 quid and considering that I read New Scientist and a load of web sites to keep as up to date with his and others' physics/cosmology stuff as my mathematically challenged mind can manage - I decided not. Didn't take long either.

I'm a fan - don't get me wrong. Popularising science - and especially critical and rational thinking seems to be a pretty high priority in the era of Trump and movable truth - even so I find myself feeling a tad uncertain about this sort of approach.

If the tickets were 20 quid I'd probably take a punt mind you.

Far too touchy-feely in that dodgy pathos driven way. He reminds me of a seventies TV presenter. Waiting for some major indiscretion to make the news. Know what I mean? :read:

Things can only get better, you know?

New Labour theme tune before Blair slew half Iraq and had a hundred women....on call. Need to be here in the UK to get the lower middle class common mood angle here...I guess. :tea:

I'd love to visit and find out, but it's too damned expensive for a poor Yank like me.

Did he ever make sense, or has he always been incoherent? :?
