Walter L. Wagner Explains Probability (updated)

Hello, Sweden.

There sure are a lot of you surfing in to this post. You've piqued my interest, what's going on in Sweden that sparked your interest in Wally Wagner the Crazy Radiation Man?

Just curious//Jim


Wally the Radiation Man himself manages to demonstrate why he is a complete and total tool on The Daily Show.

Well done, Wally, really well done indeed.

This is the funniest damned thing I've seen in a long time.

You know, it's a sad damned commentary on mainstream media when Comedy Central and The Daily Show do a far better job of exposing this utter crank for what he actually is than they do. In one six minute clip, John Oliver does more to expose Walter Wagner and the anti-LHC Conspiracy Crowd as the frauds, fakes, and kooks they really are then anything Alan Boyle and MSNBC or any other mainstream media has managed.

Beautiful, Daily Show, just beautiful.


For those of you surfing in looking for information on Walter Wagner and his theory that the Large Hadron Collider will KILL US ALL, the Wagner post is here.

*Janiece Posted this clip on Hot Chicks, but I feel it's my duty to repost it here. Plus, it gives me no end of gleeful delight.


  1. Cosmic Variance picked it up, too, and I forwarded it to the Bad Astronomer.

    I can't stop laughing.

  2. Your gleeful attitude warms the cockles of my heart. :-)

  3. When Oliver and Wagner are looking at the computer screen, and Oliver's munching on popcorn...they're looking with undue interest at a Windows XP inproper shutdown boot-screen. The most mundane thing in the universe. Hilarious.

  4. Best line in the whole clip is about the 50/50 chance they'd be able to reproduce. :D
