Phil & Jake welcome Nick G. to the show to deface the List of Every Damn Thing with graffiti.If you have something to add to the list, email it to list@everydamnthing.net (or get at us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook).SHOW NOTES: Before recording this episode, Jake had the best onion ring of his life at Big Kel's in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Daphne & Velma is a live-action movie from 2018 about the two girls from Scooby-Doo solving mysteries without the dead weight of the dog and the two boys. I think it might be a prequel too since they're in high school and it's our understanding that they are college age in other depictions. Garfield Minus Garfield (Phil got the name wrong) was a series of photoshopped Garfield comics that removed Garfield from them. Hanna-Barbera was behind maybe half of all American-produced cartoons in the second  half of the 20th century. A lot of the studio's work was real trash although kids had no better choices back then so they have fond memories of it. We don't know how they didn't get sued for basing their cartoons so obviously on actual people. Fred Flintstone for example was based on Jackie Gleason. Vandals were a Germanic people living in late-Roman times who were characterized years later by renaissance and early-modern historians as being all about pointless destruction. Phil was wrong when he claimed that "Vandalism" was coined in Roman times, the term wasn't invented until the 1790s.  Hobo graffiti are glyphs that help hobos get by in the world. Here's the more-respectable anarchy symbol that Jake saw in Spain. Here's the anti-graffiti wall from Demolition Man. Here's Nic Cage's friend's son writing “FART” on the wall in Raising Arizona.

Social media is not just for modern folk. In this episode from the Overheard archives, we'll look at how in ancient Pompeii, people also shared what they thought, who they met with, what they ate—just with different technology. For more information on this episode, visit nationalgeographic.com/overheard Want more? The new book Lost Cities, Ancient Tombs: A History of the World in 100 Discoveries details the story of Pompeii and other milestones in the human journey. Pompeii is not just an archaeological site; it's one huge graveyard. But it was very much a living city right up until it was snuffed out by Mt. Vesuvius. When you think of an avalanche, you probably think of snow. But volcanoes also cause avalanches. Archaeologists believe that it was an avalanche of rocketing, boiling gas and sediment that cooked Pompeiians alive in 79 A.D. In the late 1800s, archaeologists started pouring plaster into voids left in the hardened volcanic ash covering Pompeii. The result? Full-sized casts of Vesuvius' victims—human and otherwise. Do you live in the shadow of a volcano? Here are a few safety tips for when that telltale rumbling begins. Could Chernobyl be our contemporary version of Pompeii? Some archaeologists think so. Also explore: Curious about how Pompeii's graffiti compares to the stuff in your own backyard? Check out images of ancient Pompeiian graffiti at the Ancient Graffiti Project. Vesuvius will erupt again. The question is when, and what will Pompeiians do when it does?

When hurricane Ida struck the coast of Louisiana last weekend, almost to the day that Katrina did 16 years ago, comparisons between the two events were soon to follow. As the latest storm continues to wreak havoc and death further north in the US, Suzana Camargo of Columbia university talks to Roland Pease about the similarities and differences, the better forecasting available now, and the grim reality that climate change suggests for this and future hurricane seasons. A couple of weeks ago, Science in Action looked at the carbon accounting of Blue Hydrogen (hydrogen manufactured from fossil fuels). Listener Nick Arndt got in touch to say we were wrong when we stated that hydrogen can't be piped out of the ground from natural sources. His company, Sisprobe, plans to use its passive seismic prospecting technology to work with an international consortium that aims to unlock a new “hydrogen rush” – commercialising what they suspect to be a near-ubiquitous source of genuinely carbon-free fuel - to supply the world economy of the near future. Viacheslav Zgonnik - CEO of start-up Natural Hydrogen Energy LLC - has been working on hydrogen for 10 years, has written a recent review of the science, and tells Roland about current and future studies into finding the best way to tap this simplest of molecules before it escapes into space. In Chile, the recent megadrought has led to fears that hydroelectric damns may become so drained that power-outs may occur in the coming months. This will not help Chile to achieve its target of carbon-neutrality by 2050. Apt, then, that a new Concentrated Solar Power plant (CSP) is now up and running in the north of the country. Reporter Jane Chambers has been to visit Cerro Dominador – the spectacular new array of 10,600 mirrors that focus sunshine onto a molten salt target, heating it up to 560C, and generating up to 210 MW electricity. Meanwhile archaeologists have been doing a molecular analysis of a protein found to survive in the bones of unfortunate victims of the mount Vesuvius eruption that destroyed Pompeii. Despite the searing heat that killed inhabitants of nearby Herculaneum, Oliver Criag of York University has been able to examine the different isotopes in amino acids still recoverable from their bones to help identify what sorts of things these people ate during their tragically foreshortened lifetimes. A whole lot of cereals generally, but more interestingly, the men tended to eat more fish while the women seem to have consumed more meat and dairy. Our connection to the night sky spans cultures and millennia: observing the stars and planets helped our ancestors navigate the world, tell stories about the constellations, and understand our place in the universe. But these days, for the vast majority of us, seeing the stars is getting harder. 80% of people live under light polluted skies, and in many cities you're lucky to see a handful of stars at night. This state of affairs is bothering CrowdScience listener and keen stargazer Mo from Salt Lake City in the USA, who wonders if there's anything we can do about light pollution. Of course, we could simply turn out all the lights, but that's unrealistic. So what are smarter ways of lighting our communities to preserve our view of the cosmos? Increasingly worried by the effect of artificial lighting on the ability to observe stars, astronomer Dr Jason Pun set up a series of monitoring stations to continuously measure ‘sky glow'. By comparing sky glow across the world, he wants to figure out which approaches work best. One community taking an active approach is the South Downs National Park in South East England, one of a number of Dark Sky Reserves around the word. We visit the park and speak to the Dark Skies Officer there, to find out how people are coming together to turn down their lights and keep the night dark. And it's not just stargazing that's threatened by light pollution. Artificial light at night disrupts the circadian rhythms of wildlife. We visit a project in rural Germany looking into the benefits of dark-sky-friendly lighting on insect populations there. (Image credit: Scott Olson/Getty Images)

Science journalist and sci-fi novelist Annalee Newitz thinks and writes a lot about the future. But in their latest book, Four Lost Cities: A Secret History of the Urban Age, Annalee looks at the distant past in four ancient cities: Pompeii (of the Roman Empire), Angkor (of the Khmer empire in modern day Cambodia), Catalhoyuk (the first known city in the world in today's Turkey), and Cahokia (an indigenous city near what's now St. Louis, Missouri). Through these four cities, Annalee explores the past to understand our future.

The Babylonians felt safe prior to being conquered and thus destroyed. Or, the ancient Greek city Helike, a real-life Atlantis - which was reclaimed by the seas by a catastrophic tsunami. Pompeii, an obvious example, was destroyed because of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. History is marred by tales of prosperous civilizations that had their worlds stolen from them within moments by unbridled violence... there is a city in Texas that also was almost wiped from the face of the earth too.

Pompeii was an ancient city located in what is now the comune of Pompei near Naples in the Campania region of Italy. Pompeii, along with Herculaneum and many villas in the surrounding area (e.g. at Boscoreale, Stabiae), was buried under 4 to 6 m (13 to 20 ft) of volcanic ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79.

The hotel started out as a holiday home for the Sersale family, and over the last few decades has been converted into a hotel, now run and operated by Antonio Sersale, who took over for his father Franco in 1992. Antonio's aim is to sustain and renew the proud traditions and attention to detail that has made Le SIrenuse one of the world's most characterful luxury hotels in the world. In this conversation, we chat with Antonio on Amalfi traditions, the history of Positano, and the balancing act of continuing a family hotel and its legacy.

ESG Investment Knowledge Gap: Corporate Transparency

There is a new collection of words running around - Environmental, Social, Governance. The aim is to develop principles that will help guide businesses, governments, and other organizations in making decisions that are more environmentally and socially responsible. Proponents of ESG are also very much on the lookout for new industries and how they might fit in with those principles. One of those is the growing worlds of esports and virtual reality.  I remember my first virtual reality experience. It was back in the early 1990s and there was a big (and expensive) virtual reality set up at the local movie theater. With the bland background and very heavy polygons, it would be putting it mildly to say that the experience was less than immersive. Anyone could be forgiven for thinking it wasn't likely to go anywhere. Now, though, it has come a very long way. The combination of other advanced technologies like motion sensing, augmented reality, and haptic feedback have given us various levels of virtual reality experiences, from the Nintendo Wii to the Oculus headsets. Now that the experiences are getting better and more detailed, it no longer takes much imagination to see how we could go from where we are now to the technology available in Ready Player One, with full haptic suits and a totally immersive experience with full digital representations of ourselves in a virtual universe.  Combine that with the concept of esports and that cool omnidirectional treadmill and there are some interesting possibilities. Imagine if you could get together with your Twitter circle for a virtual baseball game. Or a car race. What if you could arrange a time to meet and do a virtual hike of the Grand Canyon, visit the Louvre? Mars? The possibilities are endless.  How on earth does this have anything to do with ESG principles? The short answer is the potential savings in resources. Imagine if you could test out a car without actually having to drive it? Or try flying a plane in virtual reality? You might find if you wouldn't like something that you would have spent thousands of dollars on. Virtual testing could be applied to all sorts of things. For example, you could test walking a dog. If you don't like it, you wouldn't find yourself returning a dog, which tends to lead to bad results for the little canine. Trying on clothes is another great use. Rather than just ordering something only to be disappointed, you'd get to see how that jacket looks in a virtual setting before you spend money on it.  It could also open up a whole world for people who would never have the resources to travel. Someone in the lower middle class could explore the Australian Outback. It could also provide a new immersive way of exploring literature or history. Wouldn't it be great if you could sit in on a Socratic dialogue, or walk through Pompeii before Vesuvius blows up? Needless to say, the educational opportunities are immense.  In terms of actual sports, some of the tech that could be incorporated, such as treadmills, could actually help the overall fitness of the population. A virtual football game could have much of the athleticism and none of the head trauma. Using virtual reality tech to play something like Call of Duty, which could incorporate a physical simulation of an M4 automatic rifle, with the same weight and shape could actually get you in pretty good shape.  Of course, none of this actually substitutes for the real thing. The real world will always be superior precisely because it is real. That's something that even the creator of the Oasis in Ready Player One realized, total immersion in the virtual leads to a disconnect from reality. Used judiciously as a tool though, it could be used to expand people's horizons and get them to a place where they have a greater appreciation for the world around them and a better understanding of how we are all connected in the long run.

Then we rejoin our Time Variance Authority team to examine the second episode of Loki, and ponder the multiverse, get giddy over the destruction of Pompeii, and, of course, sigh about jet skis. To get your question discussed on the show, email us at biff@theincomparable.com or find us on Twitter. Host Dan Moren, John Moltz and Guy English.
