…about global warming, of course, but also about the possibility that Guam might “tip over and capsize” due to overpopulation:
Well, thinking ahead of the curve comes at a risk. Just ask Galileo. This clip is full of knee-slapping moments. For example:
CONGRESSMAN: …very small island, and about 24 miles, if I recall, long, 24 miles long, about 7 miles wide at the least widest, uh, place on the island, and about, about 12 miles wide, uh, on the widest part of the island. And uh, I don’t know how many square miles that is, do you happen to know?
ADMIRAL: I don’t have that figure with me, sir. I can certainly supply it to you if you’d like.
That’s what Admirals are for. The casual observer might be concerned that his health care is now at the mercy of such flimsy reasoning. If he doesn’t follow congress too closely, he may even be shocked at the incoherence. The far more pressing question, though, is how the Admiral managed to keep his composure throughout the whole ludicrously meandering line of questioning. Give that man another star!
