129 – Never-Ending Wrath Equation

All aboard the news maelstrom: Ghislaine Maxwell faces an effective lifelong prison sentence, but what about all the other Epstein-connected pedophiles? A small town experiments with UBI. In 897 CE the Catholic church put the corpse of the previous Pope on trial. Trump capitulates to the decorum police and cancels his 1/6 press conference. Silicon Valley cannot be tamed. In 1904 some guy got away with driving to the finish line during an Olympic marathon event. The New York Times publishes transparent state propaganda which tries to spin Guantanamo Bay into something delightful. You have no idea how hard it is to get a hamster drunk. In 1788 the Austrian army fought itself. “Anti-5G” jewelry and sleep masks are radioactive (lulz). People can't stop making things epic to the point of uselessness. In 1184 a floor collapsed sending a group of German noblemen to plunge into human waste. The USofA keeps on breaking records: 1 Million Infections in a single day.

128 – A Cure For Optimism By 2022

We look back upon the year via some MegaCorporation's search engine trends, a stupid op-ed written by an oblivious pseudo-journalist, and a braindead analysis of the worst political predictions of 2021. Also, if you're lonely or just plain weird and need a simulated group countdown to ringing in the New Year, we've got you covered in the final minutes of the episode.

127 – An Unflinching Look At Our Inability To Unflinchingly Look

Absurd histories. Who said it: Trump, Biden, Harris or Pence? Public dissections. Santa mock executed by a Nazi in Chile to teach children a lesson in terroristic coercion. Germany's Green Party's rightwing turn and belligerent nuke-mongering rhetoric. Trump plans to commemorate 1/6, the day the music died. The CIA tried to turn cats into spies. A wealthy heiress is incentivized to let her oil rig continuously leak oil into the ocean since 2004 till the ongoing present. Oceanic heat blob adds to climate doom. American clowns once fist-fought Canadian firefighters and created one of the biggest riots in Toronto history. NASA's still trying to pretend like everything's normal. China's dynamic zero COVID policy continues to be slandered, ignored, or diminished by a nation (guess which) with infection rates 2243x higher and death rates 817x higher (per capita). Pfizer drops a brand new drug, stayed tuned for our imminent unboxing video.

124 – The Lost Boomer Death Squad Crossover Episode

Back in September 2021, Danny of Boomer Death Squad along with Josh and Jason of Heat Death of the Universe discussed the first episode of the then just premiering third season of American Crime Story: Impeachment, which focuses on the Clinton sex scandal (well the “big one” at least) that spawned an endless barrage of shitty late night show host and morning drive by radio DJ jokes and allowed a nation to be fooled once again by Slick “Epstein's Flight Logs MVP” Willy.

Please enjoy this as bonus/supplement of sorts while the two hosts of Heat Death of the Universe adjust to (temporarily) being on opposite sides of the globe. A new episode should be dropping by early Tuesday (12/21/2021). Until then, enjoy this new configuration of BDS and HDU.

123 – Our Unconscious Biases Swallowed By The Storm Drains of North Jersey

Steven Donziger is out of jail and back on house arrest. Assange is further being made an example of and the US is setting more dangerous precedents. Redditors are spamming Kellogg’s job portal to support striking workers. Chaos reigns along the Gulf Coast.. Grate-less storm drains in New Jersey keep swallowing people during floods. Could thorium-powered reactors save humanity? US consumer prices hit a 40 year high and wages have not increased. Bird aren't real, for serious. Mormons control the welfare state of Utah like a Sacred Underwear Mafia.

122 – Listen, Chow Yun-fat, it’s Chinagenocide

The Biden admin “diplomatically” boycotts the Beijing Olympics and opens itself up to scrutiny into its own human rights atrocities. Biden admin brazenly pretends its hands are tied when it comes to waiving patents on vaccines. Camel beauty contests in Saudi Arabia crack down on botox injections. Look at your life as a 4000+ week calendar/poster to boost “productivity.” An Italian dentist (i.e. failed med student) uses a prosthetic silicone arm to try and get around being vaxxed. The US can't seem to prevent record numbers of newborn babies from getting syphilis because Congress gets to play doctor. People desperately want to clone the dead. The possibility of a Harris-Buttigieg 2024 ticket makes us laugh and laugh and laugh.

121 – The CIA Loves Pedophilia and There Are Cool Living Bridges in Northeast India

The US twists the knife further into the Assange travesty. In Turkey, a drunk and “missing” man joins his own search party—you'll never believe what happens next! The concept of time is just, like, your opinion, man. [sings] All the single peasants (all the single peasants). The CIA's rife with pedophiles who totally evade all punishment by virtue of “protecting national security” (Also, this just in: the sky is blue). There are living bridges in northeastern India. The US can't stop voting in favor of Nazis at the UN. Black Friday remains a terrifying representation of US culture.

120 – The Pizzagate Massacre: The Movie: The Ride!

We watched the recently released, darkly comedic satire and directorial debut, The Pizzagate Massacre. Then discussed the ins and outs of conspiracy theories, their subscribers and detractors, morally ambiguous characters, and how sometimes people just literally want a slice of pizza. Maybe two.
