Notes:
1. Slavoj Zizek – Ecology (Examined Life Interview)
2. RETRACTION: @18:35, Colin mentioned that in West Africa, it is common for individuals to eat the body of the bodies of dead ebola victims as a form of vaccination. He fact checked later and discovered this isn’t true. However, it is common among West Africans, especially in Sierra Leone, to perform…”(t)raditional burial practices [which] often include washing, touching, and kissing the body…”, and in Uganda, “Prohibiting families from performing such rites is not only viewed as an affront to the deceased, but as actually putting the family in danger. In the event of an improper burial, the deceased person’s spirit (tibo) will cause harm and illness to the family” You can find this sourced here.
3. Martin Heidegger – The Question Concerning Technology
4. 2015 Gold King Mine EPA Waste Water Spill
5. RETRACTION: @28.00, Evan mentioned that Carl Sagan opposed the fact that Voyager 1 had a radioisotope thermoelectric generator. What he apparently meant to say was that Michio Kaku opposed the Cassini–Huygens Space Probe for the same reason.
