(Newser) – From Facebook page to TV series: Yes, I F-ing Love Science is coming to the (other) small screen. The science page has almost 11 million fans on Facebook, and the upcoming Science Channel series was announced at SXSW, Deadline reports. Elise Andrew, a biology student when she created the page three years ago, will serve as a consulting producer; late night host Craig Ferguson will be executive producer. The show will include live-action and animated bits, re-creations, celebrities, and of course, scientists.

"If you know anything about me, you know I love science," Ferguson said while announcing the series, according to LiveScience. "And this show is going to explore the randomness of science. Think of it as a late night Google search that goes a hundred pages deep until things get weird—and then you just keep going."

Not surprising that vulgarity is resorted to. A commonplace among the malingerers who make up such a plurality of the dull witted and malleable. The necessity to appeal to the low and foul for a fan base only suggests the incredible slobbering mess the show is likely to be. It is not appealing to anything higher than the vacuous, dim witted who are possessed by the kind of wholesale hatred for everything that requires them to be vicious and contemptuous. Will it drop off the charts because its target audience can't take their time away from drugs, video games and an all consuming devotion to prurient pastimes to watch a program with maybe several three syllable words? Will the program end up sacrificing truth obviously to play up to the foul mouthed sluggards in its target audience? Will the lox class nature of the production threaten to torpedo Ferguson's career? And the fact of the matter is that “economics” is not a science. If it was anything like a science it would have headed off the various financial collapses and disasters that have assaulted the public. “Economics” consists of an endless invocation of “game theory”, which, itself, is also nothing but a fraud. “Game theory” presents countless charts, tables and formulas, then, at the end of every problem, it says that the answer is to ignore all the information and choose randomly. In fact, science is supposed to study what are absolute and unchanging universal laws and rules. But economies are run by shell companies, “creative bookkeeping”, fraudulent tax breaks for the rich, manipulating stock and gold prices. There's nothing absolutely “true” in reports about how economies around the globe are doing. Pushing the idea of “economics” helps those who are controlling financial affairs worldwide behind the scenes arbitrarily helps keep the dull and witless from realizing everything is being controlled by individuals who have all but absolute control over all money. In fact, though, consider that, in terms of money, everything is layered, in hierarchies, those who earn money being paid by those who are their bosses, the bosses being told what to pay by the corporate executives, banks and conglomerates apportioning money out to corporations, and so on. But, in any finite system, a hierarchy must have a highest level. It can have many members, but there will be none higher. If the population of earth is finite, then there is an absolute highest level that controls all the money. They sit with, essentially, the giant pot of all physical “wealth” at their behest. They don't apportion it because personal levels of riches will change constantly as transactions occur. And they wouldn't want to, at some point, end up unknowingly with far less than anybody else, even if it changes shortly afterward. But, too, they extend to each other a fraternal respect. They consider the willingness to engage in the international criminality that led to their fortunes as not corruption but bravery! Since they all jointly own the pot of all wealth, they don't even have to undergo the problems of individual possession of only a portion of all the wealth, such as having to pay! Who would they pay, themselves since they all own the pot of wealth jointly? They simply take what they want or initiate the programs they want. And, since the total wealth does not change, they will never lose money, no matter what happens! That is a quality of the New World Order, that they never suffer, no matter what occurs! This highest level of all monetary hierarchies is at least a part of the New World Order. Don't expect the fraud called “economics” to even dare admit this provable situation.
