TAM London got in the way of me posting a COTW last Friday, so this week I’ve decided to award two â€” TWO! â€” Comment o’ the Weeks! I mean Comments o’ the Week! I mean Comments o’ the Weeks! Anyway, one from this week and one from last week.
Each winner will get to choose a question for next Wednesday’s Afternoon Inquisition, which will in turn become the Super-Massive Afternoon Inquisition of DEATH. Or something. Onto COTW!

@ekimbrough: Rectal Redundancy sounds like something you would rent at the adult store. I think the sequel was Rectal Redundancy 2: Back in the Back.
Nicely played, Skrap, nicely played.

I feel like memetics is missing from this discussion. We have, after all, produced the Internet, which has allowed memes to flourish wildly. And while thereâ€™s probably a genetic component to intelligence, thereâ€™s also undeniably a memetic one: you canâ€™t learn an idea that youâ€™re never even exposed to. Weâ€™ve seen a rise in skepticism and a drop in religiosity just in the past few years, and I think that has nothing to do with genetics and everything to do with a war of ideas.
Or to put it another way, Randiâ€™s never had kids, but most of us here are like his brain-babies.
Congratulations, Skrap and jtradke! Send in your Afternoon Inquisitions using the comment form.
Remember, nominate your favorite comments by clicking the little arrow by the post and writing “COTW!” somewhere in your response.
Happy Friday, everyone!
