The fact that this is an astrobiology rap is a good thing. Like the recently memed-out Large Hadron Collider Rap, the Astrobiology Rap places important and difficult to understand science on the pop cultural smorgasbord, and that is good.
But this isn’t the Large Hadron Rap. It is simply, IMHO, not as good.
Which reminds me of a story, see below. Anyway, here is the rap for your review, I’d love your opinion:
The music is dull, the rapper is mediocre, the words are totally cliff note. Or maybe I’m just having a bad morning, having just eaten the last cookie.
The story: So yesterday I arrive late at a meeting. Eight or nine professional educators and two high level administrators are sitting around the Dean’s boardroom table. The Head of Office of Information Services is leading the meeting. On the blackboard, it says:
“888″ H8 ‘kk’ AFK
ru … 888 ??
And everyone is looking very serious. WTF? ROFL!!!
