SFR 350: Madeira’s Family Reunion

–We kick off by opening a bottle of Madeira, perhaps Thomas Jefferson’s wine of choice.
–This was a big week for the biggest trilogy of all time. That’s right, Wednesday was Back to the Future Day! Okay, just kidding…we talk about the new Star Wars trailer first so Bobby can geek out.
–Then, yes, we get into Back to the Future a bit so we can talk about the “predictions” it got right and wrong about the future.
pigandwolfSFR–Shootings You May Have Missed (and some you didn’t) include a shooting at Tennessee State over a dice game, an O.K. Corral re-enactment gone wrong, a 6yo child shooting a 3yo child, and a broader discussion about how often children get shot in the United States.
–RECOMMENDATIONS: We talk about the documentary KILLER LEGENDS, which leads us to a discussion about the stories involving poisoned Halloween candy, how the fear of it is vastly overblown, and where the story of poisoned candy began.
–Bobby reviews the sleep paralysis documentary “The Nightmare,” which is streaming on Netflix US, and gets into how his own experiences tie in to this.
–It’s Halloween week, so let’s talk about ghosts. In particular, what is the psychology behind belief in ghosts? Under what circumstances are they seen?
–The family of a slain officer in Kansas are very upset at ghost tour guides making money off of “hunting” the spirit of their relative.
–Looking ahead to two live specials this week: First, on Monday, A&E will air “Fear: Buried Alive,” and then on Friday night, Destination America will have Chip Coffey exorcise a house or something. We’ll end up watching both, and reviewing them next week.

    I just wanted to say, the Nike shoes were actually pretty cool of Nike because Michael J. Fox has Parkinson’s and shoes that lace themselves would actually be incredibly useful for people with Parkinson’s or other conditions that impact motor skills.

      That is an interesting point, yes. Does Nike plan to make shoes like this more widely available? Or was this a limited-edition type of thing?

      • Slim says:

        I’ve heard they do intend to have them available for purchase. I haven’t heard anything about how many or what they’ll cost, though- probably significantly more than the average sneaker, but I know people with impaired motor skills who would pay it. I think they’re supposed to come out within the next few months.
