As stated in Fail Quotes, the above video is win.
I think Tim Slagle is very underrated.

I dunno. I mean I agree that Al Gore should be gored for his idiocy. But it's not really science's fault that media likes to take a scientist's statment, pick out a part and come up with big ass scary headlines from it and omiting all the rest he said.. Or is it?

Made of win.  Indeed.
You just earned yourself another anti-bogon for that one. :)

That's correct.  And yes, it is, as far as I know.

I don't even want to THINK about what would happen to a bogon-powered engine when it's turned on...I just don't want to be within 20 miles of it!

"The statist 'intellectuals' that represent themselves as logical, scientifically-minded people really annoy the heck out of me. They'll act perfectly rational until someone tries to make an argument against statism, and then suddenly they start babbling as incoherently as a Creationist, blissfully unaware of how ignorant they sound. When thunderf00t started delving into economic topics, I couldn't take it. I had to unsubscribe. The worst part is he's passing his ignorance on to his subscribers."--787Bisurdaddy, from the comment section of this video:

There are actually people who think silver's, and possibly gold's, price is going up is because it's in a bubble?
There are people who actually believe that?

How come other metals like neodymium are going up, too? Is there a neodymium bubble as well?

It's actually wrong at 1:46. You can take out a loan to buy anything.

along with gold, platinum and palladium, to name a few.

Glad I wasn't the only one who thought that was a bit weird when he mentioned that.  Also, the use of anecdotes was lacking in rigor, but otherwise, I liked it. :)

Yes, but neodymium isn't traded as a precious metal, so it's a great metric for comparison.
