Hack a Day on Fact or Fiction with [Veronical Belmont]

Enjoy a fun episode of “Fact or Fiction” with [Veronica Belmont], with guest [me] from Hackaday.  The show “Fact or Fiction” generally takes some popular topic and talks to experts who can shed some light on the topic. They’ve had all kinds of intelligent people on, and also me.  If you watch a few episodes you’ll see that she tends to let people talk about the science for a bit, but inevitably veers over into “can we actually make this?”, which tends to elicit an awkward and somewhat humorous response from the person being interviewed, because most of the things they’re talking about are pretty outlandish, like portal guns.  I enjoyed the one about life on mars, especially when she asks the gentleman how accurate portrayal of martians in movies are, right after he explained that we’re looking microscopic things.

On a completely unrelated note, it is a very very small world. I ran in to [Veronica] at CES a few years ago and we found that both her and her husband both worked in the same office as [Phil Torrone] when Hackaday was just beginning.

  2. Fun fact: Chell doesn’t speak because she’s a mute, she doesn’t speak because she’s too frustrated :3

    That reminds of this video I saw where this guy made a real-life portal sentry gun. Their site is http://www.realsentrygun.com/ The videos of the thing in action are scary 0_o

    fav quote: “same as… without all the cool things that like someone who knows how to make stuff would add to it”

    You might want to go ahead and pour some cold water on that.
