Matt:

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. We have liftoff.

Rob:

Welcome to Matt and Friends Drink the Universe.

Matt:

Alright, welcome back to Matt and Friends Drink the Universe Today.

Rob:

Think, think, think or drink.

Matt:

Are you thinking or you drinking? We're going to be doing think or drink the drop game man.

Rob:

It's a we're really. We're really. You guys are leaning planning, exploring new territory in season two here.

Matt:

We might have fallen over at this point.

Christa:

Yeah, you leaned so far. You leaned a little too far. You know what Go big or go home, it's fine.

The Fish:

Hey, that's the way to go.

Matt:

We are doing think or drink trivia today, and it's going to be Rocket Science. Ooh, interesting.

Siobhan:

I'm scared.

Rob:

Well you know, just because it's a science episode, I think we just need to hit the button now.

Siobhan:

Do it. You just want to get it out of the way. Yeah, for the whole episode.

Rob:

Yeah, Science, science, rocket, science, yeah.

Siobhan:

Yeah.

Rob:

We didn't make a new drop. That just says Rocket.

Christa:

Science. I'm so surprised at it later.

The Fish:

We're very Just add a little drop in this.

Christa:

We're very drop-heavy this season, oh yeah.

Matt:

Before we go any farther, let's go around the table. Here We'll introduce ourselves.

Rob:

Okay, hi everybody, it's Rob back again.

Christa:

Hi everyone. I'm Kristen, I'm new.

Siobhan:

Hey, it's Siobhan. I'm not new, I'm here all the time.

The Fish:

Hey, it's fish and I'm somewhere.

Rob:

I bet you, you are fish.

Matt:

Just swimming through the universe. Once again, we have the fish.

Christa:

We have the fish In an undisclosed location.

Matt:

So the way the game will work, we're going to ask Rocket Science themed trivia questions. If you answer correctly, you can choose someone else that is playing the game to drink and that person will lose a point. If you answer incorrectly, you lose a point and we move on to the next person.

Rob:

Yes, and we do have the make it a double mechanic, yes, which everybody can use one time where you can partner up with somebody else that's sitting here to help you answer the question. If you both get that question correct, you can both then choose somebody who will lose points. If you get it wrong, you both will lose a point, correct?

Siobhan:

Yep, we'll remind people.

Matt:

All right, we will do this as we go. So let's talk about beer for a minute here. So I found some Rocket Science science themed beers. The first I have an R&D from Funk Brewing here in Pennsylvania, and then I have one called Stage Separation from Elementary, and they are both pale ales.

Rob:

They both look like politicians Is elementary, next to.

Siobhan:

Alabama. I think it's elementary, but that's okay Elementary elementary, it's still a good name.

Christa:

Play on words.

Matt:

All right, okay, pronunciation game not strong.

Siobhan:

All right, that's why I'm here. That is why I'm here.

Matt:

So we're going to go ahead. We're opening up the Funk R&D Literacy in.

The Fish:

America.

Matt:

Here we go.

Siobhan:

Oh, chris, so nice it smells quite tasty Nice. It's a sound from the can. It's good. Spoiler alert. We've all already been drinking. It's delightful.

The Fish:

All right, yeah, you guys have been drinking that one. I got my own back here.

Siobhan:

Yeah, what do you have? What do you have?

The Fish:

What do you have?

Rob:

Well, I can try to see on the screen. Tell the people Duck rabbit is good, duck rabbit, what is it? It's the milk stout, the milk stout, good stuff. There you go.

Siobhan:

Delicious, good call, it's very nice.

Matt:

All right, here, bert, would you like?

The Fish:

to go first.

Rob:

I'll show you the fish is trying. What is fish doing? Oh, he's ported.

The Fish:

There we go. There's the beer there.

Matt:

It is Okay, it's important to note that the fish is joining us remotely, so he's on a tiny iPad in the corner of the screen here. I wouldn't call that tiny.

Christa:

It's a decently sized iPad.

Rob:

And, yes, I will start if you would like me to. All right, and then are we going to go around the table as we introduce ourselves with fish last, and then come back around to me.

Matt:

Yes, that's exactly what we're going to do. Okay, all right.

Rob:

I would like to point out, although my profession is in the realm of science, it is in a completely different realm of science, so I am not very confident this morning.

Matt:

Actually, let's do that first. What is your given degree background ology?

Rob:

Oh, real quickly, my degree background ology is biology. However, my job currently I guess my title is scientist, but I'm more in the chemistry world these days. All right, I work for a major pharmaceutical company that shall not be named and I primarily work on cancer drugs.

Christa:

Very cool, literally same Me and Rob have the same job.

Rob:

Oh yeah, Spoiler alert. I know Chris from work.

Christa:

We work together.

Siobhan:

Wow, is that a spoiler? I feel like those are just facts. I mean it is a fact Is that a science fact? Yeah, a fact that is in the realm of science. I think we'd be reaching, I'd be reaching a little bit, but yeah, so there you go.

Rob:

So that's what I do, that's what she does.

Siobhan:

I'll just say ditto yeah Well, I do none of those things and I do the complete opposite, and I'm all in humanities land with maybe the ology that's closest is like etymology. I do a lot of word work, friends. Librology yeah right.

Rob:

Librology there's a better word for that but I will say that maybe that library background is very good for you.

Siobhan:

Actually, the library background that I have is a masters in science.

Rob:

Well, there you have it, so we'll ask her all around.

Christa:

We're going to ask her a question.

Matt:

She's going to run up to the public library Dewey Decimal and answer and then come back in.

Siobhan:

No, no, no no Library of Congress for the win. You don't do a decimal around here, though it is very easy.

The Fish:

I have used it. Do we just do a decimal system? I have used it. I feel like it's an outdated system.

Christa:

I feel like it's a little.

Siobhan:

It's actually better, though, than Library of Congress, and it's specifics, but I still like Library of Congress because it's more readable. Anyway, I'm an editor, so I do a lot of word things, but we'll see I'm also a huge trivia oligist. Yay, there you go. I like a lot of trivia, so we'll see how that goes for me today.

Matt:

All right, Fish. What do you got for us? Your degree background ology, Oceanography.

Siobhan:

No, that's not.

Christa:

If theology is a fish. That is the fish.

The Fish:

You know what, if you really look at it, my ology would be I guess, in people, I guess oh that's good, but that's anthropology, but right now, there you go, but right now I'm just a manager in a restaurant. That's all Awesome, nice. Nothing major, nothing glorious about that.

Christa:

Sounds great. There's nothing glorious about most people's jobs. Okay, yeah, really.

Matt:

They pay the bills Exactly, and my ology, yeah, that's about it.

Rob:

Your ology is hostology. It is, it is also there you go.

Matt:

My ology is psychology, which uniquely qualifies me to put up with Bert on a regular basis.

Rob:

Hey, also known as Rob. I don't think we ever refer to me as Bert on the podcast we probably have.

Siobhan:

At one point it's possible.

Matt:

All right, are you ready?

Christa:

Barely yes.

Matt:

Here we go. First question, and don't worry, it's just rocket science. Okay, here we go. What is the estimated age of the universe based on the current cosmological observations? A billion years, 4.5 billion years, 13.8 billion years or a hundred billion years? I'm going with 100 billion years. You are going to drink. The answer is 13.8 billion years. Give or take 200 million years, either direction.

Siobhan:

When I tell you astronomy, I would like to point out when I tell you I do that because of my TikTok algorithm thing.

Rob:

It works. Well, I'm in an early hole here.

Siobhan:

That is another joke. I should be, making, but I'm scared that I'm going to derail my brain.

Christa:

Shivan is to keep the jokes to a minimum so that she doesn't move any of the information out of her brain.

Siobhan:

It's a very complicated Tetris puzzle. In there there's a finite level of space in the brain right now, correct?

Matt:

Crunch bowl, krista. What type of rocket is commonly used for launching communication satellites? Liquid field rockets, solid field rockets, hybrid rockets or ion rockets?

Christa:

Geez. Um, that's a. I'm going to go with liquid.

Matt:

You're correct, it is a liquid field rocket. Well, you may choose another lucky contestant to drink and lose a point.

Christa:

Um, I'll choose fish, because he's technically next to me.

Rob:

Fish, you're down a point, Sorry finish Not of your own doing.

The Fish:

No, no, not at all, but More milk's out for you, so good, good. That's right.

Siobhan:

Exactly.

Rob:

This may be the shortest episode of trivia we ever do. Everybody's just giving those a. Everyone's gonna.

Siobhan:

I don't know, she did really well. Hey man, what is not that one?

Rob:

Everybody's got a 25% chance of getting these. That's right.

Siobhan:

I like those odds hey.

Matt:

Siobhan, what is the primary component of rocket fuel? Hydrogen oxygen, nitrogen or hydrogen peroxide? Now this one, I know.

Siobhan:

I think it's hydrogen.

Matt:

You are correct, it is hydrogen.

Christa:

I thought I knew it but, I was like do I?

Rob:

No, no, no, I saw your hands out there. What?

Siobhan:

do we do? Matt, you're not playing right.

Matt:

I can't just make you drink tea, no, no, well, we're gonna have to. I don't know For targeting the host, listen.

Siobhan:

I just feel bad because Rob is already down, fish is already down.

Rob:

Why are you feeling bad?

Siobhan:

Because I don't. I know I'm sure Play the game.

Rob:

Play the game. Is it me? Is it fish? Who is it? No, it's Krista. Is it Krista? Yeah, we got it. Okay, there you go. I feel like that's the thing, break her in.

Christa:

Someone would have made that choice if it weren't me first. You gotta do what you gotta do, man, I will happily take one for the team, if you need to deal one out later.

Matt:

The R&D is pretty good, I'm really enjoying this.

Siobhan:

It is really good, right? This is the beer that.

Rob:

I feel like I can have more than one of.

Siobhan:

Yeah, definitely, and it's only 5%.

Rob:

It's like a good sitting on the porch outside in the summer.

Christa:

Yeah, I'm into it.

Matt:

Okay, so Rob, no, no Fish.

Siobhan:

It's fish.

Matt:

Fish, you can't forget the fish.

The Fish:

I'm sitting here, I'm drinking. What are you doing, guy?

Matt:

I'm sorry fish, this isn't gonna be good. Okay, fish. What equation describes the relationship between the mass of a rocket and its acceleration?

Rob:

Before you read the answers, I just want you to know. Fish, he set me up for that question.

Siobhan:

Yeah, he totally did. Which is actually. This is actually a good question.

Rob:

So so I apologize, because he tried to make it extra spicy because he was gonna try to ask it to me. So sorry, you're gonna have to take that flag for me.

Siobhan:

We believe in you fish. All right you got this, you got this. Hey, yeah and so.

The Fish:

I might be finishing that. Well, we'll see Okay.

Matt:

So what equation describes the relationship between the mass of a rocket and its acceleration? Newton's second law, einstein's theory of relativity, kepler's third law or Ohm's law? I can read the equations if you want, but no guarantees I'll read them correctly, squiggly line letter in the Greek alphabet.

Christa:

Yeah, I don't want to know about all that stuff.

The Fish:

All right, it's not the second one, all right. What was the third one?

Matt:

Kepler's Third law, the equation is p squared equals a cubed, or anybody that understands what that means. I am not that person.

The Fish:

Well, how do you get a cube?

Rob:

No, it's p squared, of course. Yes, it equals a cubed, exactly.

Christa:

He told you these things Come on, fish keep up. That's how math works.

Rob:

Math E equals mc hammer. We talking about numbers.

Christa:

Yo, I didn't know there was a math button.

Siobhan:

But we're not. But that's okay.

Rob:

Exactly, we talking about coefficients.

Christa:

We're talking about algebra baby?

The Fish:

Yes, so letters.

Christa:

Letters with numbers. All right, I'll go with Kepler's law.

Matt:

Oh, it is actually Newton's second law. Force equals mass times, acceleration, and Newton's second law is a quantitative description of the changes that a force can produce on the motion of a body.

Rob:

Dude, I didn't know you could say all those words.

Matt:

Neither did I hey.

Siobhan:

I'm impressed, I'm proud of math. Wow, really good description. I knew that one.

Rob:

Okay.

Christa:

I had a really good guess for that one, which was actually the answer, so, but it was. You know, I was like Newton, that's motion.

Siobhan:

I mean yeah, right, Exactly.

Christa:

Yeah, that was my thought process.

Rob:

Shit be moving.

Christa:

Shit be moving All right TM Rob yes.

Matt:

What does the acronym NASA stand for? National Aeronautics and Space Association yes. National Aerospace and Space Administration yes. National Astrological and Space Agency no. National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

Rob:

Sorry, can you read them? We gotta read it Really Come on, yeah, yeah, let's us Wow.

Matt:

What does NASA stand for? I should go with a National Aeronautics and Space Administration. National Aerospace and Space Administration. National Astrological and Space Agency. National Aeronautics and Space Administration I believe it is D. Yes, you are correct. Founded in 1955, july 29, 1955, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the United States Civilian Space Agency, responsible for the nation's civilian space program and for aeronautics and aerospace research. Well, done. That is when they're not contracting the Elon Musk.

Rob:

My dear friend Siobhan.

Siobhan:

Yeah, yeah, yeah, we get it.

Rob:

Let's get you on my level and just to recap, because I didn't do that before Right, I just answered my round two question. Siobhan was in the lead with no points off.

The Fish:

Chris and.

Rob:

I at four, fish at three. And now spoiler alert.

The Fish:

Wait, wait, wait. How did I get to three?

Rob:

Because you got a question wrong and somebody made you drink.

The Fish:

Oh, that sucks.

Rob:

Sorry, equals, mc Hammer. We talked about numbers. Let me tell you.

Christa:

We are going to wear that button out by the end of season two so funny.

Siobhan:

That was a rocket burn.

Rob:

OK, we're on. We're on to Chris, All right.

Matt:

Krista.

Christa:

Oh God, here we go.

Matt:

Which of the following is a hypothetical entity that may be responsible for the acceleration of the expansion of the universe? Uranus?

Rob:

What it's not your turn, Rob, oh sorry.

Matt:

Dark matter, dark energy, neutrinos or gravitational waves, so which hypothetical energy may be responsible for the acceleration and expansion of the universe?

Christa:

Those all sounded like Futurama references, right there.

Rob:

Zodberg.

The Fish:

What is the answer? I was going to say Sheldon was stuck in there, but you know.

Christa:

God, I'm going to guess gravitational waves.

Matt:

You're going to have to go ahead and take a drink.

Christa:

The answer is dark, matter Is dark matter is composed. I was. I was unsure because I was like that didn't sound like a, like a real answer. No, dark, dark matter is a real thing.

Rob:

I know it's a real thing. That one I would have done. I didn't think that that would be responsible.

Christa:

Like you, sure is a nice guy. So dark matter is composed, or?

Matt:

hypothetically composed of particles that do not absorb, reflect or emit light, so they cannot be detected by observing electromagnetic radiation.

Rob:

It's also the polar opposite of you, the dark matter.

Christa:

Because it's the white, don't matter. No, because you're the light mat.

Rob:

This is the dark matter. No, it's bad, it's bad.

Christa:

That was bad. No, I was trying to go to my bed, bad joke.

Siobhan:

Bad joke. Yep, do it, can you?

Rob:

please confirm how much is left in there. I mean, you don't want it.

Siobhan:

I'm going to finish it.

Rob:

I'm going to finish it Okay.

Christa:

So it's around half, maybe a little bit less than half.

Matt:

Make better jokes, oh ouch.

Siobhan:

Another burn, another rocket burn. We got to make one of those drops Rocket burn Right.

Christa:

Very specific for this episode.

Matt:

All right, Hi Shabon. Hi which cosmic microwave background radiation experiment or satellite provided precise measurements of the universe's temperature, supporting the theory of cosmic inflation?

Siobhan:

The economy- Give me a choice. You better give me a free choice.

Matt:

We have the Wilkinson microwave and probe.

Siobhan:

I'm sorry, can you say that?

Matt:

again the Planck satellite.

Siobhan:

No, you have to give me the first choice again.

Rob:

I didn't hear it, the Wilkinson probe, it's the.

Matt:

WMAP, the Wilkinson microwave, Annie's trophy probe.

Siobhan:

Okay.

Matt:

The Planck satellite, the cosmic background explorer or the act.

Siobhan:

This is some bullshit is all I have to say when I say every time he read the first choice, more words were added.

Christa:

Yes, they did he literally there's so many variables.

Matt:

I was very scared of the second word.

Christa:

I came to microwave probe, then there was an A word there in there, an A situation yeah okay, I'm not asking again, because what is the real answer?

Siobhan:

I'm afraid there will be more syllables. It's the Anus probe, I mean let's be real, you guys, I don't know this, so him repeating it is likely not going to help me also when we're looking for a cosmic microwave background radiation experiment or satellite.

Rob:

So we have the Is the one with the word microwave. It your best guess, maybe I mean that could be true. I'm just throwing it out there, or you can go with the most answers.

The Fish:

you see. Ain't no helping there, rob, I'm not helping anything he's not helping.

Siobhan:

I think we're all in the same. What the hell is this boat? Yeah?

Rob:

You can make this the double Take somebody down with you, that's true. Too early, Too early okay.

Siobhan:

Oh my God, can you tell me the second one again?

Matt:

The Planck satellite. Okay, so not that.

Siobhan:

It's up there planking and the third one we're going on this core Cosmic background explorer. I'm going to go with that one.

Matt:

That is correct.

Siobhan:

Hell yeah.

Rob:

Wow, exploring the backgrounds Cosmically, we were right.

Matt:

C was the answer, so the purpose of the cosmic background explorer was to measure microwave background radiation, which is the cooled remnant of the first light that could ever travel freely in the universe Fossil radiation.

Siobhan:

I would like to say this is astronomical trivia. There has been very few rocket options and I was very specific in the rocket things that I looked up this morning, so I'm a little bit sad now.

Rob:

Well, friend, you got that right. Not sad that I know rocket things. You need to assign a drink to somebody.

Siobhan:

I'm a perfectionist is what I am.

Rob:

You need to assign, assign blame.

Siobhan:

Well, that chug didn't count against you, right?

Rob:

No, not as a point.

Siobhan:

So then, you get to, you need to open another beer.

Rob:

Okay, I'm moving over to the elementary brewing. Co-stage separation. Double IPA Sounds cool. Let's see how it tastes. There's the pop.

Siobhan:

Physics.

Rob:

Ooh, hang on, there's a lot of suds.

Siobhan:

He spilled over a little bit, so it's almost a party foul.

Matt:

Uh-oh, his pants are in better shape than when he spilled a lot of bourbon on them in episode one of this season.

Rob:

I do not like this.

Matt:

Who not enjoyable? No, Uh-oh.

Rob:

It is, it's very intense.

Siobhan:

It is a double IPA.

Rob:

Doesn't taste anything like an IPA to me. Oh, that's weird. The IV are hoppy or what.

Siobhan:

The IBUs are really low on it actually.

Rob:

It's not bitter, it's a it tastes like a barley wine.

Siobhan:

Oh, that's, I'm not gonna lie, I'm probably not gonna open that though.

Christa:

Yeah, I might steal a sip from someone else, but I don't think it's gonna be me.

Rob:

Fish. Tell me if I'm crazy here.

Christa:

Let me take a little sip of the others.

Matt:

While you're doing that, fish. What is the name of the first artificial satellite launched into orbit by the Soviet Union in 1957?

Rob:

Oh, son of a bee. Are you kidding me, apollo? I have no idea Easy.

Matt:

Apollo Explorer One, sputnik One or Vanguard.

The Fish:

What was the first choice?

Matt:

Apollo 11.

Siobhan:

Buddy double up. It's an Apollo One for the record. Sputnik One or Vanguard.

Matt:

You might wanna call for a double Rob's just chomping at the bit over here.

Siobhan:

If you don't know this, please, there are a few of us that might. Yeah, oh.

Christa:

I don't know.

Rob:

Rob needs more help. Well, actually we're all at three other than you, so yeah that's so.

Siobhan:

Don't call him me. Call him me, I'll help him yeah.

Matt:

Fish, you're gonna double up.

The Fish:

Oh yeah, why don't we double up? Sounds like a good idea.

Rob:

Who you doubling with he's making it a double. Choose your poison. Who?

The Fish:

Who's the one I don't see?

Christa:

Oh, it's me, that's Krista.

The Fish:

Hi. Oh yeah, the hand. Yes, I'll go with the hand.

Matt:

You go with the hand.

Christa:

It's me the hand, it's Sputnik. It's Sputnik One.

Matt:

It is definitely Sputnik One. Yay, okay, you both wanna take a point back.

Siobhan:

Is that what we do? I thought we were getting you both give it out to somebody else you can do either. Oh.

Matt:

You can either recoup, you can either recoup a point.

Christa:

Look at us making up rules. No, no, no, that's been rule. This is Calvin Ball. I'm taking that back, bro. Okay, Krista's gonna take the point back.

Rob:

Fish. Would you like the point back or would you like to dole out a drink?

Christa:

I'll take the point back.

Rob:

Okay.

Christa:

Smart, well done, let's go. Great, great, great, great. So let me recap that round. Anytime, I knew that one.

Siobhan:

Now.

Rob:

I am in last place with three points Fish, Krista and Siobhan all have four after Fish and Krista recoup that point Word.

Christa:

Let's go.

Rob:

Here we go. All right, burt Rob, yes, rob Burt.

The Fish:

Robert.

Rob:

Robert, that's where it comes from everybody.

Christa:

What? Oh my God, your name, holy crap.

Matt:

Yesh Robert, what is the name of the rocket that carried Apollo 11 to the moon in 1969? Steve, steve Name.

Christa:

Correct, that's crazy, no, hey oh wow, they was before.

Siobhan:

Matt:

Carell, they made it to the moon Steve. Carell and family. The office yeah, what is the name of the rocket that? Carried Apollo 11 mission to the moon, the Saturn V, the Delta IV.

Rob:

Say nothing more. It's the Saturn V.

Matt:

Indeed, it is the Saturn V. Well done, he said. I don't need to give us all the choices, bro.

Christa:

Take those out, wow. Confidence.

Siobhan:

Matt:

Okay, krista. How many of SpaceX's Starlink satellites are currently?

Christa:

Siobhan:

Oh.

Rob:

I think it was a Star Wars question.

Christa:

Coruscant, Coruscant. Final answer.

Rob:

Coruscant game hen what?

Matt:

Siobhan:

No, we already did that Trivia and I'm so sunken. It's Han Solo. It's Han.

Christa:

Solo, it's Han Solo, it's always him.

Matt:

How many of SpaceX's Starlink satellites are currently in orbit around the Earth? 2200, 3,800, 1,400, or 4,900?

Rob:

Before you answer, I must just say all of those numbers are way above the number that I was thinking I was like I don't know, maybe they do them in screens.

Siobhan:

I had no idea they send them up in multiples. Yeah, I didn't know that.

Rob:

Yeah, I already know that I just gotta say that's a crazy any number is gonna be crazy to me, so true.

Siobhan:

Did not know, because I feel like they just started doing that? How could they have gotten many? I think it's been a while. He's had SpaceX for a while. Never doubt the musk. Let's not do me. I doubt the musk.

Matt:

All right, I love your musk. You mean trust the musk.

Siobhan:

Are we trusting the musk?

Christa:

Not as far as I could throw.

The Fish:

I know fair enough Same.

Christa:

Okay, Sorry. Can you read the answers again for Supervillage Elon Musk.

Matt:

Sure 2200, 3800, 1400, or 4900?.

Christa:

Honestly, this is way higher than I thought it was gonna be. I'm gonna go with 2800.

Matt:

So 2800 was not actually one of the answers.

Christa:

What was the answer B? What are we doing?

Matt:

2200. Oh 2200,. I would do it that way 3800, 1400, or 4900? We talking about numbers 2200. Okay, actually 3800. Oh my God you guys.

Siobhan:

That's crazy. How, how could you do that? Because you know what he's got a lot of kids. He's got a spread out.

Matt:

Like who's seen Wally? Who's seen the movie? Like it makes me wonder you remember when the spaceship could, like, bump satellites out of the way?

Siobhan:

Oh, that's legit, there's so many satellites in orbit around the earth.

Christa:

Where did we live? Well, that's because when they shoot him up, they just don't bring him back down.

Siobhan:

Exactly no, yeah, it's crazy, there's so much shit up there.

Christa:

I did not realize that many were from SpaceX. That's crazy. You want like?

Matt:

a dark question. What are you?

Christa:

doing A dark question.

Siobhan:

It's kind of a darker question. Space is dark. Is it a death one? Yeah, maybe I do.

Matt:

What is the name of the space shuttle that broke apart during re-entry in 2003, killing all seven crew members 2003. Challenger Columbia, discovery or Endeavor.

Siobhan:

Guys, it's not the Challenger.

Matt:

No.

Siobhan:

It's earlier and I had that poor Kristen McCullough from New Hampshire that.

The Fish:

I did my fifth grade book report on.

Siobhan:

I had to talk all about her.

The Fish:

I watched that in school.

Siobhan:

I can't tell, wait, I can't tell if it's the Columbia or the Discovery.

Christa:

Wait, fun fact did you know that in Challenger Big Bird from Sesame Street was supposed to go up in there to prove to kids that space travel was safe and they didn't put Big Bird on there because they couldn't make a space suit big enough for Big Bird?

Rob:

Can I just say that is a cool piece of information Is that TikTok?

Siobhan:

Is that from TikTok or that's from your brain? That's amazing. I know that for like 10 years. I love that.

Matt:

I'm the one who I'm going to hell for this, but my head was just a plume of yellow feathers coming in.

Siobhan:

No, it's so sad.

Rob:

Big Bird is a phoenix.

Siobhan:

That's good.

Christa:

There's an alternate universe, somewhere where Big Bird grew up in front of a bunch of children.

Rob:

So many feathers.

Siobhan:

Right.

Rob:

All right. 93, challenger no 86, I think.

Siobhan:

It was 80s. Oh what 86. Yeah, 86. Yes, I was young.

Rob:

Yes, yeah, because my dad was in high school. You weren't even born. I was not born. Wow, wait a minute, you make me feel old.

The Fish:

Don't worry.

Siobhan:

Fish how old were you?

The Fish:

Well, I was in high school at the time. Oh well then, you are old.

Christa:

Challenger exploded 10 years before I was born. I was born in 1996.

Matt:

Yeah, fish is going to punch me for this. I was one.

Siobhan:

OK, well, I was three, so that's closer.

Matt:

You are right, it is either Columbia or Discovery. Ok, thank you.

Siobhan:

Thank you. A rocket boost, Listen get over it, just shut it.

The Fish:

Just shut it. Hold on a moment.

Siobhan:

I said it out loud, oh there, huh, oh F me, is it Columbia.

Rob:

Yes, it is yes because the discovery is currently. I was like, yeah, the discovery, I know that that exists already, so it wouldn't have exploded.

The Fish:

Oh my gosh Shabon.

Siobhan:

Everybody who knows things about rockets is mad at me right now.

Christa:

But it's fine. Dude, I went to the Air and Space Smithsonian eight years ago and I'm like damn. I wish I went there more recently. So has to acquire the knowledge to.

Rob:

I love it.

Christa:

It's nice.

Rob:

So I went to the one. Oh, fish, fish, you're taking a drink. But yeah, ok, yes, you are Sorry, it's also Fish's turn.

Siobhan:

Yes, it is also his turn, oh man.

Rob:

Oh wait, did I give him your drink? I said no, no, no, no Fish wait.

Siobhan:

No, that's fine. Ok, what's he at? Because he got a point back.

Rob:

Yeah, he did. Now he's back to three now.

Siobhan:

OK, that's fine. Ok, fish, you're drinking. Sorry, sorry, dude, you're drinking and you're answering a question.

The Fish:

Are you ready Fish? I got to open another beer.

Siobhan:

Amazing.

Christa:

Please hold.

Matt:

Listen while opening. What is the name of the principle that states for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction? Is it Newton's first law, newton's second law, newton's third law or Einstein's law?

Christa:

I'm going to say Newton's fourth law and you're like what I know? Oh my god.

Siobhan:

That's pretty good, he gets all of these?

Matt:

Is it Newton's first, second or third law, or Einstein's law?

The Fish:

Well, considering that we already talked about Newton before and I have no idea which law we talked about then, that was the second.

Siobhan:

Ok, so therefore it is not the second, he's not. He still has three other choices.

Matt:

You want to chug again? No, you could.

The Fish:

Ok, you're fine. Hey, I just poured another beer.

Rob:

I did All right fish.

The Fish:

Where are we going here? Could you read the question again, please?

Matt:

Yep. What is the name of the principle that states for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction? Newton's first law, newton's second law, newton's third law or Einstein's law? There's smoke coming out of my iPad right now.

The Fish:

Yeah well, there's smoke coming out of my head right now.

Matt:

That's where it's coming from. I can see it.

The Fish:

I can see it, we'll go with Newton's first law.

Matt:

Oh is Newton's third law. You were good on Newton's law.

Siobhan:

Also is Einstein's a law.

Matt:

No. Okay, I was like I said, I was like it's a theory.

Rob:

Yeah, that's a theory of relativity. The theory of relativity. Right, yes, not law.

Siobhan:

I took high school or kid science High school or kid Like I know what hypothesis and theories are okay.

Rob:

Quick recap oh crap, siobhan. And the lead with four points still Nearly unscathed.

Siobhan:

Say it, jinx.

Rob:

We've got myself in second with three points. We've got Krista and Fish with two points.

Christa:

Because suck Right. You know what?

Rob:

And myself, Krista and Siobhan both have to make it a double still available to us Right, we do, just going to throw that out there.

Matt:

Does anybody have one point? No, okay, all right.

Siobhan:

No one pointers.

Matt:

Are you ready?

Siobhan:

Are we making up rules again?

Matt:

I'm a host, I can do whatever, oh OK.

The Fish:

OK, go on, I'm ready. Go ahead. I thought he was looking in the books for the world.

Matt:

Hit me. What is string theory?

Christa:

Oh I, I think I might know this.

Matt:

Rob's eyes inflated four sizes.

Siobhan:

OK, go on Yep, give them choices.

Matt:

A theory that describes the behavior of vibrating guitar strings. A theory that explains the origin and properties of cosmic strings in the universe. A theory that unifies all fundamental forces of nature by considering elementary particles as tiny vibrating strings. A theory that explains the travel of planetary bodies is being bound by vibrating gravitational strings.

Siobhan:

Oh, that Springs.

Rob:

First answer I believe it is D.

Matt:

You believe it is D.

Rob:

It's either B or D, and I'm going to go with D.

Matt:

Your guitar, on several occasions, has been tuned to drop D. However, in this case, the answer was C, a theory that unifies all fundamental forces of nature by considering elementary particles as tiny vibrating strings. Interesting, well, crap, krista. Yeah, what is the name of the unit of measurement used to express the amount of force generated by a rocket engine a Newton, a Joule, a watt or a kilogram?

Rob:

Do you need assistance?

Christa:

I feel like I might know it, but I'm going to?

Rob:

OK, go ahead.

Christa:

No, no, no. I'm going to call my double for Rob, because we're friends.

Matt:

Can you make it in a double? Oh Joule.

Christa:

Yeah, that's what I was going to say. Can we agree upon?

The Fish:

Joule, yeah, guys.

Matt:

The immortal world is Indiana Jones. Last year you chose poorly. It is a.

Siobhan:

Newton. Oh really yeah, kids, what?

Matt:

Yes, it is a Newton of force.

Rob:

Joule is a unit of work, guys. There's a lot, yes, but it is a Newton of force.

Siobhan:

There's a lot of Also a delicious cookie. String theory of Newton in these questions.

Christa:

Son of a, b.

Siobhan:

I'm so sorry, bummer, you guys, wow, I mean, at least you're on the same page. No, I thought I was a full student Because I was like, yeah, joule is a Newton of force.

Rob:

What is this? Look at this. We do science.

Christa:

Yeah, I mean it was so real, but not physics. We don't do physics, yeah, we do chem.

Siobhan:

It is quite a different science. We do chemistry, well crap everybody.

Rob:

I'm so sorry Aw.

Siobhan:

That was such a nice partnership show, though I know it was.

Rob:

She tried to help me out.

Christa:

You know what? I'm never trusting Rob, ever again.

Siobhan:

Oh man Wow, another burn.

Matt:

Rocking Lesson Life, lesson All right, yes. Which of the following is the type of compact star with an extremely high density, son of a B? Are you kidding me Again? Astronomy, can I end up formed after?

Siobhan:

a supernova. Uh-huh.

Matt:

You're a little salty over there. Wow, neutron star, a white dwarf, a red giant or a black hole?

Siobhan:

I'm sorry. Can you read the question again?

Matt:

I can, which of the following is a type of compact star with an extremely high density formed after a supernova, neutron star, a white dwarf, a red giant or a black hole?

Siobhan:

I think it's a black hole. I could be wrong, but I think it's a black hole. Go ahead.

Matt:

You're going with black hole, I am. The correct answer is actually A neutron star.

Siobhan:

Okay, see, you didn't know it either.

Matt:

Rob, I thought it was a white dwarf.

Siobhan:

Yes, me too, I thought it was between those two yeah kids Okay.

Rob:

Well, you know what? This is the second one where I was very confident my astronomy teacher in college.

Siobhan:

My astronomy teacher in college.

Christa:

The new. Thing is?

Siobhan:

Rob knows all these questions. Quote unquote. My astronomy teacher in college would have been very mad about that. He tried to make me the TA after I took astronomy once and I was like yo, I'm a senior in college, I'm not coming back to TA, your class you took astronomy in college.

Christa:

I did. It was amazing. Yes, it was a science class. I wish I had a room in my schedule to do that kind of stuff.

Siobhan:

There's a lot of physics, but it was still really cool.

Rob:

All right, let's get fish on the board here. Here we go.

Matt:

You know what elective I took senior year of college Geography of wine. That was wine tasting. What? Because I said you need one credit and my options were like basket weaving, wine tasting or more serious options. I was like no.

The Fish:

Wait, you had a wine tasting class in college.

Matt:

Yeah, he did. Oh yeah. Oh, we can talk about that. I thought he was. No, I can talk about that. That class is awesome.

Christa:

My brother did a beer brewing class where they got to brew their own beer. However, he took that class and they did all their prep work to brew the beer, but you know, you got to let it ferment for a couple weeks or whatever. Unfortunately, those two weeks he was supposed to ferment were supposed to be the two weeks to flatten the curve, and then they never went back to school, so that beer just rotted at their school. No, he never got to taste it. What a bummer. It was so tragic.

Matt:

Moment of silence for that beer. There it was. It was a bummer.

Siobhan:

Fish. What's the Newton's law? No, I'm just kidding.

Matt:

What is the?

Christa:

name the guy. Yeah, who's the guy.

Matt:

What is the name of the effect that causes rockets to veer off course, due to the rotation of the earth? The Coriolis effect, the Doppler effect, the Faraday effect or the Zeman effect?

Christa:

Was this part of the plot of the Martian? I feel like this was like a huge yeah, it's a good movie.

Siobhan:

Right, it's a good book, Mad this is really good stuff.

Christa:

It's a good book. It's a huge contentious. I felt like I wanted to do this.

Siobhan:

I had to do another stress.

Matt:

Rogue Answer the Coriolis effect.

The Fish:

Hmm, I'm going to go with that one.

Matt:

You are correct, it is the choreo.

Siobhan:

Nicely done.

Matt:

Maybe, like next season, I can reach out to Neil deGrasse Tyson and he can be, like my phone, a friend there you go to work.

Christa:

Neil, that's the coolest thing ever, neil, just in case you're not busy, or Bill.

Siobhan:

Nye the science guy. Oh yeah, that's.

Matt:

Bill Nye.

Siobhan:

What the bow tie, I went to grass.

Matt:

That's fine.

Siobhan:

Bill Nye is awesome.

Rob:

Bill Nye, the science guy, bill Nye. Bill Nye.

Siobhan:

We used to watch that all the time.

The Fish:

No, I want him to drink. That's a good choice.

Rob:

Dang. That's a good choice, because that ties fish and shivan for two at the top of the leaderboard. Chris and I, with one, hold on by the skin of our teeth. One point you have one point.

Matt:

Yeah, all right, as a benevolent host, you each get another point.

Siobhan:

Why do you have like 80 more pages of questions that?

The Fish:

you're like.

Rob:

Listen here for eight hours here we are going to the next round. Everybody's tied it to. It's a brand new ball game.

Siobhan:

Oh my god, it's anybody's game.

Rob:

Now I will tell you that shivan and I both have our make it a doubles. We do.

Christa:

Still in our pockets Been trying to see that Hold on Shavons waiting for the perfect moment.

Matt:

Okay, here we go. What is the name of the boundary in the solar system that marks the point which the sun's gravitational influence is no longer dominant? The or cloud, the heliopause, the Kuiper belt or the asteroid belt?

Rob:

I know one is not. It's not the asteroid belt, because everything beyond that is still orbiting the sun.

Matt:

Give me the other three Something cloud is the work cloud, the heliopause or the Kuiper belt, and I'll do you a favor, since I handed out a couple.

Siobhan:

It is not the Kuiper belt, you're not working out or heliopause. Three choices, though, only right.

Rob:

No, no, no, no, I eliminated the fourth.

Siobhan:

That's right. Good call, good call, not right.

Rob:

So we're either looking at the or cloud, which doesn't make sense to me, because usually when they name things cloud, it's like a cluster of stars.

The Fish:

So I'm going to go with the other one, which is the heliopause.

Matt:

It is the heliopause. Yeah, you know why.

Siobhan:

You know why Helio is sun in Greek.

Matt:

There you go.

Siobhan:

You would call them big way, big brain. I would have helped you.

Rob:

I mean I could have, but I felt like Also, there's only I listen.

Siobhan:

I'm still holding on to these doubles. I know that's fair.

Matt:

Fun fact time. The heliopause is the boundary that defines the outermost region of our solar system. It is the point at which the solar wind from the sun, composed of charged particles, slows down and merges with the interstellar medium. Beyond the heliopause, the influence of the sun's gravity diminishes. The effects of the interstellar medium become more prominent.

Siobhan:

So interesting. There you have it.

Rob:

There's also like there's another heliopause thing, so let the people know that over the next two years calendar years through 2025, we are now in what's called a solar maximum. Okay, and what that means is that the electromagnetic storms on the sun are going to be more prominent, more intense and more frequent, and therefore the aurora borealis, also known as the northern lights, are going to be more readily visible further south than normal. Go see the northern lights.

Christa:

Change my life. You just saw them in Iceland.

Siobhan:

That's like the place to see the eastland, I know it's cool there, and I didn't see them when I was there.

Rob:

You, were there the wrong time of year.

Siobhan:

No, I wasn't. I was there in November, nerd, oh yeah, and.

Rob:

I was only there for five days, though.

Siobhan:

I know I was only there for five days and we only tried twice. So it's just the weather didn't work out because the climate was there. No, no, I feel that the lights weren't there.

The Fish:

Right, and it's Chris's turn it is.

Matt:

What is the name of SpaceX's crewed spacecraft designed to transport astronauts to and from the International Space Station the Falcon Heavy, the Dragon, the Starship or the Falcon nine?

Christa:

Man.

Matt:

SpaceX is crewed spacecraft Falcon Heavy, Dragon, Starship or Falcon nine. Crewed meaning people.

Siobhan:

People and not kind of not the end or all spacecraft.

Christa:

Yeah, I feel like it's well. I mean it's SpaceX, so it's probably get like a real, like bitch in name. Read me the choices again, because I remember two of them.

Matt:

The Falcon Heavy, the Dragon, the Starship or the Falcon nine.

Christa:

I feel like I'm going to go with the Dragon.

Rob:

It's one of the Falcons. That is correct. Oh, let's go.

Matt:

So the actual, the actual name when I crafted the questions Time out. Time out no no, no, no, no, no Time out.

Rob:

I never gave somebody a drink. Well, you can wait, okay.

Christa:

You got to do a double drink. I'll get one and you give one.

Siobhan:

Okay, I'm going to die.

Matt:

Actual name of the rocket was the Crew Dragon. So when I made this question with a little help from chat GPT to get all these done I had to chop out crew to make it a little less obvious.

Christa:

Did you use chat GPT for all of your questions?

Matt:

Yes, I did and I verified them all up against Google to make sure that they were correct.

Siobhan:

I was going to ask. If you fact checked, I would have helped fact check.

Christa:

That's cool. I did not know that that's fun.

Matt:

Well, I figured I'd use it as the ship's computer and it did give me a couple of questionable answers that I typed back in and then Google it and it was like oh, I'm sorry, my answer was wrong, this is what it should be.

Siobhan:

And I'm like you knew, but why did you screw it up? Listen, I was coming for you, bro. I love drinking that.

Rob:

Hey man, I'm just a trooper. He's rocketing through it, yeah.

Siobhan:

I feel like big space pun. It's really cool that you used AI in like a science heavy trivia.

Christa:

I'll make Siobhan drink, okay, sure.

Siobhan:

Word. I got it. You're down to one.

Rob:

I was due and because I've not given out a drink, I'm not going to be terrible.

Siobhan:

Thank you, I appreciate it. I would like to be out of my own accord.

Matt:

The good fish. Thank you, sir. All right, siobhan. Who was the captain of the Apollo 13 mission? Armstrong, buzz Aldrin, jim Lovell or Alan Shepard?

Siobhan:

Well, I think it's Jim Lovell.

Matt:

It was Jim Lovell, yeah.

Siobhan:

That's Tom Hanks right.

Rob:

Yeah, tom Hanks.

Siobhan:

Tell me everything he says is a stitch.

Christa:

Tell me why when you said the captain of, I was for sure. My brain was like captain of the enterprise, obviously, oh clearly.

Siobhan:

James T Kirk. I was like you're boy, james. Oh my God, james.

Rob:

T Kirk's middle name Tiberius. I said Picard.

Siobhan:

That's how you know I'm a next generation person. I mean, I don't hate the old original series.

Christa:

I just have you guys watched Strange New Worlds on Paramount, by the way. No, it's one of the best show they've come out with in years.

Siobhan:

We should do a Trek trivia we should not be good, probably, but it would be fun to learn.

Rob:

Wars man, not a Trekman.

The Fish:

All.

Christa:

I'm thinking right now I can do either one I know I've been on some Star Trek things, but yeah, fish goes both ways.

Rob:

Strange New Worlds is excellent.

Matt:

So I recommend it. All I'm thinking right now is Houston. We have a problem, oh yeah. That's all I can hear.

Rob:

There's something on the wing.

Christa:

I have to shut their shutter, so great we have no way to take Shatner.

Siobhan:

Can you remind me of the scores, because I have a drink to give out.

Rob:

You do, I have two, krista has two. You and fish both have one.

Siobhan:

All right. Well, I'm going to give you, rob, a drink.

Rob:

Me Rob. Yep, okay, me Rob.

Siobhan:

You Rob. You Rob a drink. I almost did a Seth Rogen laugh again that was like a, that was like I'm sorry to drink that love that.

Matt:

Fish. You did so well with a force question last time. Here we go again. What is the name of the force that opposes the motion of a rocket due to the gravitational pull of a celestial body? Gravitational.

Christa:

Gravitational yeah.

Matt:

Thank you. Gravitational Got it. Is it centrifugal force, gravitational force, magnetic force or the Coriolis force?

Siobhan:

It's centrifugal centrifugal, centrifugal. It's a fugal foreign.

Rob:

Fugal horn.

Siobhan:

It's centrifugal.

Rob:

All right.

The Fish:

I said you put the pronunciation on the wrong, the syllables.

Siobhan:

Yes.

Matt:

My infast. This was on the wrong, so label yes, all right.

The Fish:

So can you read the answers again.

Matt:

Yeah, centrificial force Gravitational.

Rob:

Words drop from Shavon.

Siobhan:

Yeah Words.

The Fish:

We're talking about words.

Siobhan:

The forest motherfucker. Yeah, that's right Dictionary. Wow, the ms, the words.

Christa:

The words. There was an aerial.

Rob:

The sky, oh yeah.

Matt:

What is the name of the force that opposes the motion of a rocket due to gravitational pull of a celestial body? Centrificial force, gravitational force, magnetic force or the Coriolis force?

The Fish:

All right, well. Well, those other words sound kind of fancy, but I'm going with gravitational force. You are correct.

Christa:

Yeah, I'm glad that after five minutes of deliberation while we all lose our minds out here, fish got the right answer. Yeah, he looked it up, he did.

Siobhan:

He was like they're all talking, I'm going to look it up on Google.

Christa:

They're all having an injury, not that I want to influence your decision fish, but Chris is the only one with two points.

Rob:

The rest of us have one.

Christa:

You can either take somebody out of the game or making an equal game going to the last round.

Siobhan:

I helped you on the double round Matt has 87 more questions, so he'll cry a little.

The Fish:

Yeah, you did. Okay, I'm going to call an audible. Oh, matt, here's it.

Matt:

Okay, I'll drink.

Rob:

Whoa he is penalized Fish, fish, fish, oh man, no, I love, that Fish is a maker.

Matt:

I love it. I love it. Here's why, drinking the universe, we call that a quirk, quirk.

The Fish:

Oh my God, you had to be great science referees.

Siobhan:

I would science button for that, science button, quirk.

Rob:

This is your first real science button button.

Matt:

Let me enjoy this.

Rob:

Science, science. I must say, even though I'm drinking a terrible beer, I'll even stellar sip that.

Siobhan:

I poured you a better one. Steller sip.

Christa:

I know I'm not getting pineapple on the nose. A little bit there's about eight flavors in this thing, Chavon.

Siobhan:

that is delicious. So I brought sour from tripping animals.

Christa:

May I guess the contents you can, there's so many, Rob I'm getting pineapple for sure.

Rob:

Am I getting a guava?

Siobhan:

There's another tropical fruit in there I'm getting pineapple for sure.

Rob:

I'm getting pineapple for sure.

Siobhan:

There's another tropical fruit in there.

Rob:

Is it dragon fruit?

Siobhan:

No, it's not that cool. I would say passion fruit, passion fruit. We got one, two more fruits.

Rob:

There's definitely some citrus in there as well. No, is that just the pineapple then?

Christa:

I was just. I thought it was gonna be orange. Yeah, I'm getting an orange. Yeah, it might just be made. The pineapple is just black.

Rob:

Is it a lactose as well?

Siobhan:

There is milk sugar.

Rob:

yes, yeah, okay, I'm getting lactose, there's well if we count other flavors, there's five more. Okay, you know what? I'm just lengthening this episode and I'll stop because Matt's giving me a look.

Matt:

No, I have no idea how this discussion started and that's where the look is coming from.

Siobhan:

Well, I poured him a better beer than the garbage pile beer that he was drinking.

Rob:

I'm drinking good beer now. I'm just trying to guess what was in it. Tossed chug and the name. What is that for?

Matt:

I bought you good beer, drink your beer.

Siobhan:

That's not good beer. That was good beer. I mean it's not great beer, I mean just drink well chug that beer oh no, wait how much is in it.

Rob:

I'm sorry Like a lot, like half a drink. Oh no, that's gonna be awful. We're in a situation where Chris is in the lead with two, everybody else has one Shavada and I both have Megan of Doubles.

Matt:

What is the name of the process by which a rocket's engines are shut down and it enters a stable orbit around a celestial body? Is it the circularization burn, the injection burn, the traverse burn or the escape burn?

Rob:

You should go to a. I'm pretty sure I had a circularization burn when I was born.

Siobhan:

Well, I was about to say you should go to a doctor If you have an injection burn we're about to go to a doctor.

Rob:

Well done, understandable. So, circularization burn what burn.

Matt:

Injection burn, traverse burn or escape burn. If it's an injection burn, you gotta get some cream for that or a couple of pills.

Siobhan:

That is the UTI, son, you get the cream.

Rob:

Yeah, I'm very good.

Siobhan:

Oh.

Rob:

God, I don't know. I would like to make it a double. Oh, I would like to make it a double with Krista.

Christa:

Jesus. What's the answers again? I know one is circularization.

Rob:

I thought to check this terrible beard.

Christa:

One is circularization one is escape one's injection. What's the other one?

Matt:

Circularization, injection, transverse or escape burn.

Christa:

I feel like it might be either injection or escape, but I don't really know. What are you feeling, Rob? I kinda wanna say injection. It rings a bell to me, but I don't remember if that's entering atmosphere or leaving atmosphere.

Rob:

Entering a stable orbit around the celestial body.

Siobhan:

Correct Is what he said.

Rob:

So I don't know that circumcision burn is sounding a lot more.

The Fish:

A sin.

Christa:

No, I mean it's circular, right, the circular, the circular is the same.

Rob:

How about A? How about A?

Christa:

I'd be down with that. We're gonna go with A.

Matt:

You're going with the Jewish. Burn the circular. Let's see Circumcision. Burn. No, no, no, no, it's an instantaneous burn.

Rob:

It's the Christian burn the Jews wait until they're 13.

Siobhan:

What? No way don't. What are you talking about? To get a circumcision? No, they don't. That's a brisk. That's a brisk.

Rob:

That's a brisk, it's a part of the bar mitzvah, isn't it? No, it is not no.

Siobhan:

Are you?

Rob:

kidding.

Christa:

No, are you kidding? No, I don't know.

Siobhan:

No, the brisk I thought that was part of it. Haven't you seen the Seinfeld episode for the brisk? No, wait, wait, wait. I thought that was a baby. Are you joking right now? I?

Rob:

thought that the Jews waited until they were 13. No, I thought that was part of the bar mitzvah. I thought they were like Shabbat shalom. You know, you know.

Christa:

The bar mitzvah is where you go. Read from my whole body what the fuck.

Rob:

I thought that the party was after they take the day.

Siobhan:

It's when they become a man.

Rob:

It's when they become a man. What, what do you think?

Christa:

was the bar mitzvah. The female version. Yes, what did you think that was?

Siobhan:

Fair question when they get their period?

Rob:

Oh, it's when they become a woman.

Siobhan:

That's actually. They bleed, that's OK. First of all, they both bleed, no.

Rob:

The men bleed and the women bleed. The mitzvah is not for bleeding.

Siobhan:

I'm so scared that you didn't know that. How do you not know?

Rob:

that Time out before we continue this conversation. Did we get it right what we did?

Siobhan:

You did get it right. Yes, I'm crying right now. Yes, I will tell you. Yes, it is the circularization burn. Yes, thank you, judea.

Rob:

I'm taking that point.

Christa:

I'm taking that point.

Siobhan:

Oh. Wait, give me a point too, because I know that, my god, oh my god, I can't believe that shit.

The Fish:

I think we should all get a point for Rob Rob you need to get into Jewish media a little more Dude.

Christa:

I'm just watching. I know I just watched all the books. We need a history trivia.

Siobhan:

Listen, I don't know anything Clearly here OK.

Matt:

I just finished the last night for the Jewish community bro, I wish.

Christa:

I could but Jesus Christ.

Matt:

So here's the grand irony in all this when I was shopping for beer, oh lord. On the shelf was one and it was Hebrew. Literally it said on the top the chosen beer and had a Jewish name. It's Hebrew. I looked at it, it was like that'll never fit today's episode.

Siobhan:

There's no way we'll ever bring anything up related to that? Of course we will, and here we are. It is Well. Hebrew is a brewing company.

Matt:

Well, just name it after.

Siobhan:

I mean you might need to for a little bit.

Christa:

I don't know what to tell you. We're going to circularize back.

Siobhan:

We're going to circumcise.

Christa:

Back here.

Rob:

We're going to circumcise.

Matt:

back to the beginning. I enjoy mitzvah as much as the next guy. Ok, but we need to move on to the next question.

Christa:

Wait, did we make people drink for a thing?

Matt:

Yeah, you're not doing it right?

Siobhan:

No, we took back time to drink, we took points back.

Rob:

We took points.

Christa:

I saw that was so long ago. Oh, did you guys?

Siobhan:

Well, wait what. All right, it's my turn, right. No, it's Krista's turn. No, she's not. Oh, no, no.

Rob:

We doubled up with.

Siobhan:

Rhaen, we doubled up so much has happened so much has happened, screaming.

Matt:

OK, krista. What is the name of the rocket that NASA is developing to carry astronauts to the moon and eventually to Mars? Ooh cool. Do you know? Orion, artemis, sls or Starship?

Christa:

I think it's Artemis.

Matt:

It is the Artemis, you are correct.

Rob:

Yeah, that's cool, that's cool Nice. That's another. That's a current trivia.

Siobhan:

That's another classical reference, yeah, mythology reference, if you want.

Rob:

I'm glad they didn't name it Icarus, or this is a.

Christa:

Huntress. Isn't it, yeah, isn't she yeah?

Rob:

She's a constellation.

Christa:

Diana.

Siobhan:

Yes, mars is her brother.

Rob:

Siobhan, I would just like to remind you that you still have your Megan a double.

Christa:

You're the only one who has it left.

Rob:

Good to know, Wait do.

The Fish:

I get to make someone drink, is that?

Rob:

my thing now. You do, yeah, you do.

Christa:

Can I ask what the standings are? You can.

Siobhan:

I forgot that was so long ago. You are in the lead with three. It was at least eight minutes.

Rob:

I have two, siobhan and Fish. Both have one.

Christa:

Do I be mean and knock one out, or do I knock you down to one?

Rob:

I mean, you could do anything you want. Knock them down Because you are.

Siobhan:

It would be ruthless to cut somebody out.

Christa:

Rob helped me out with the circulation.

Siobhan:

I got you that point back.

Rob:

I knocked a different word. Come on girl.

Christa:

I'm going to knock Siobhan out.

Siobhan:

I'm sorry, siobhan, I feel like Siobhan has been dangerous, this whole game, that's fair.

Matt:

Let's say Wow. I'm sorry.

Siobhan:

Siobhan.

The Fish:

That's.

Siobhan:

OK.

Christa:

This is going to be one awkward hand out later. No, that's OK, I swear I'm cool. Guess what? Now you can make jokes. Can I leave where it's not you can make jokes.

The Fish:

The whole rest of the episode oh, don't worry, I was going to do that anyway, but it's cool.

Christa:

Siobhan's turn is going to be replaced by jokes and or space bags.

Siobhan:

I'm only bummed. Wait. Can I ask a question of the host right now?

Rob:

Yeah, I would say you get your make-it-a-double as a life-saving question.

Siobhan:

No, my thought is that's fine. I don't need to be answering more questions. Could I hand my make-it-a-double out to someone, because everyone has used theirs? Can I give it to someone who is still in the game?

Matt:

Yeah, sure, let's do that. Ok, can I just say that I love you.

Siobhan:

Yeah, you can, but I'm giving it to Krista, no Yum.

Christa:

I am. I am Siobhan. Thank you very much.

Siobhan:

I got you girl Even though I knocked you out. She is a lady, that's OK, I'm here. I'm here for you. I should not drop.

Christa:

It's because it's because we both said we hit a big bang.

Rob:

I love you less.

Christa:

I love you less.

Siobhan:

That's OK, that's fine, I'll take it. I'll take it.

Matt:

What is the name of the first rocket that successfully put a human in space? The Vostok 1, the Gemini 3, Apollo 11, or Sputnik 1?

Rob:

I know this one as well, but he has no make-it-a-double.

Christa:

Yeah, I know.

Rob:

Fish thinks.

Christa:

You got this fish. I believe in you.

The Fish:

Well, that's good. Because I'm not sure I believe in myself, I'm going to send you telepathic waves.

Siobhan:

No, I'm sending vibes. I can still do that. I can still do that.

Rob:

Fun fact, the man's name is John Glenn. That helps you.

Christa:

No, it is not. It's not the Russian one.

Siobhan:

The man's name is Yuri Gagarin.

Matt:

Stop helping, stop helping.

Christa:

It was Russian was the first man in space.

Matt:

Correct.

Christa:

I hope that helps you face it.

The Fish:

What are my choices again?

Matt:

So the Vostok 1, Gemini 3, Apollo 11, or Sputnik 1? This?

Rob:

is more shocking than the circumcision revelation that I've had.

Siobhan:

We can tell you I don't think it is actually Not the first person in space.

Christa:

The first person in space.

Siobhan:

He's also the first actually John Glenn is the first man in orbit.

Christa:

In orbit.

Siobhan:

There you go, alan Shepard is the first man in space.

The Fish:

Yuri Gagarin is the first man. Oh sorry.

Siobhan:

Go ahead.

Rob:

Let's let Fish answer his GD. Answer Fish, we've helped you immensely now.

The Fish:

Hey, yes, I know you've knocked out two answers for me, so B and C are not correct, right?

Christa:

Teamwork and Sputnik wasn't earlier answer, if that helps.

Siobhan:

Right which it was not a manned mission.

Christa:

I didn't say anything. I just said it was an earlier answer.

Siobhan:

Oh, she's helping a lot actually, and then you help me. I suck, I'm second. Come on help me.

Rob:

Somebody help this shit out of me in a moment. I'm not helping this shit out of you at all.

Matt:

No, all right Fish. What do you got?

The Fish:

I'm going to go with Gemini.

Matt:

It is the Vostok one. No Goodbye.

Siobhan:

Fish, sorry, fish Dude. Yeah, oh, we knew you so well.

Rob:

It was great.

Siobhan:

Sorry Fish, it's been wonderful. It's OK Fish, Now you can just make funny comments like me.

Rob:

But here we are.

The Fish:

I've been doing that the whole time. Exactly here we are.

Rob:

Chris Krista in the lead with the make it a double from Siobhan in her pocket and she is at three, I am at two.

Siobhan:

You guys still have so many points and it is your turn. It is my turn.

Rob:

Are you going to hand select a question for me? You jackass oh.

Matt:

I got one right here. What is the name of the term that describes the ratio of thrust produced by a rocket engine to the amount of propellant consumed?

Christa:

Physics.

Matt:

Specific impulse, thrust to weight ratio, propellant efficiency or thrust efficiency.

Rob:

I'm going to go with thrust efficiency because I'm a thruster. Let's go. Tmi, son of a bitch.

Matt:

It is the specific impulse. Well, my impulse was wrong.

Rob:

Damn.

Siobhan:

Yeah.

Rob:

I had nothing. Yeah, I'm down to one point, krista. Oh, hi, krista.

The Fish:

When you're all here.

Rob:

This could be it. This could be it. Oh wait, I was going to ask Wait.

Siobhan:

can I ask a clarifying question?

Rob:

Yes.

Siobhan:

If she chooses to make it a double, can it only be an active player in the game.

Christa:

I was just thinking that I could choose to. I could choose to save Rob for a while longer if we wanted to do more questions, or could she?

Rob:

get somebody back into the game. Oh, I don't know, that's a lot of work.

Siobhan:

I like being tired, I just a respawn.

Matt:

You know what. You never know what happens in the universe. Her discretion.

Siobhan:

OK, fair enough, Fair enough Fair enough.

The Fish:

OK, Wow it's up to you, Krista.

Matt:

What is the term for the study of nature, origin and evolution of the universe as a whole? Is it astrophysics, cosmology, astrobiology or stellar evolution? Study of nature, origin and evolution of the universe as a whole.

Christa:

As a whole.

Matt:

Astrophysics, cosmology, astrobiology or stellar evolution.

The Fish:

Choose cosmology.

Christa:

Oh thanks, fish, you know what I'm going to go with. Astrobiology.

Matt:

It is cosmology.

The Fish:

It is cosmology.

Matt:

Fish fish fish.

Rob:

Remember that time that fish gave you the answer and then you didn't choose it. Yeah, ok, everybody, I felt like it wasn't right. Here we go. I'm a fish. I doubted you, bro. 2 and 1, right. 2 and 1. Krista, 2, me at 1. Here we go, oh god, here we go.

Matt:

What is the name of the device that regulates the flow of propellants into a rocket engine? Is it the fuel valve, the thrust controller, the injector or the combustion chamber?

Siobhan:

That sounds like just like your last question.

Rob:

Good god, yes, it does. Ok, we've got the regulation of what. I'm sorry.

Matt:

Regulation of flow of propellants into the rocket engine. Propellants into the rocket engine, yep, fuel valve thrust controller, injector or combustion chamber oh god.

Rob:

It's going to be A or B. I'm going to lean towards A, the fuel valve. Please tell me that I'm still in this game. It's not A or B.

Matt:

It is. It is injector.

Siobhan:

I would have thought you would have gotten the injection one.

Matt:

Most modern cars have a fuel injector bro. Yeah, but that doesn't mean he knows that that's the fucking rocket science thing he doesn't know about Jewish people engines.

Siobhan:

There's a lot of things. There's a lot of things or geography.

Matt:

He doesn't know a lot about science books or the French. He took the.

Siobhan:

French I took what's a song? It is a song. It's not a French song, it's just a song.

Christa:

We need a French.

Rob:

This science books With that.

Siobhan:

With the movies. No hold on. Look at that.

Matt:

I'm going to tell a sip to Christophe.

Rob:

First time guest. First time guest, first time winner Yay, stellar sip, I feel like Congratulations.

Christa:

Thank you all. I came to play and I came to win. That was amazing.

Rob:

That was the worst way to go out for me. I really wish to see what I've gotten a question right and just taken me out.

Christa:

Yeah, well, if I was in the fish I would have got it right. That's all I know.

Siobhan:

It's all goes. Note to self don't doubt the fish. That's right Hashtag Don't doubt the fish, Don't doubt the fish.

Matt:

The fish swims through the universe.

Christa:

Everybody doubted me on cosmology.

Matt:

All right.

Christa:

Thanks everybody for listening.

Rob:

Thank you, bye, everybody.
