35:26 – Biggest Bogon Emitter: Myriad Genetics https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20160527/08591934566/myriad-genetics-refuses-to-accept-that-people-have-right-to-access-their-own-dna-sequences.shtml

This Week’s Quote: “The people terrorists kill are not the targets; they are collateral damage. And blowing up planes, trains, markets or buses is not the goal; those are just tactics. The real targets of terrorism are the rest of us: the billions of us who are not killed but are terrorized because of the killing. The real point of terrorism is not the act itself, but our reaction to the act. And we’re doing exactly what the terrorists want.” —Bruce Schneier

31:54 – Idiot Extraordinaire: CNN (nominated by BlameThe1st) http://www.cnn.com/2015/10/19/politics/hillary-clinton-bernie-sanders-poll/

This Week’s Quote: “You now have two distinct ways of gathering information beyond what you yourself can experience. One of them is less a medium than an environment—the Internet—with a huge multiplicity of points of view, lots of different ways to find out what’s going on in the world…a cacophony of viewpoints that doesn’t have any political coherence at all, a beautiful melee, but it doesn’t have the capacity to create large blocs of belief. The other medium, TV, has a…very uniform belief block. TV in America created the most coherent reality distortion field that I’ve ever seen. Therein is the problem: People who vote watch TV, and they are hallucinating like a sonofabitch. Basically, what we have in this country is government by hallucinating mob.” —John Perry Barlow

This Week’s Quote: “Segregation was enforced in the South precisely because so many people were opposed to segregation. You don’t pass a law to force people to do what they would do anyway…Without a law mandating segregation, the first white company to hire black workers and serve all customers would have set in motion a train of events that would have made segregation impossible.” —Harry Browne
