    Typical, not come to Canberra.

    This one's problematic.

    Both Dawkins and Krauss have a history of bumbling idiocy outside of their restricted sphere. Dawkins in particular I have an interesting history with, and he's incredibly good at being blinded by his privilege.

    Krauss isn't too wide of that mark either, at times.

    I'll check it out when it becomes freely available, but I'm not going to pay them for what will likely be two rich white men missing an abundance of points.

    I still don't understand why we laud 'leaders' like we're a monkey troop who like the colour of their arses.
