Hadn't Heard This One In Over A Decade

I can't say I know anything about the Acoustinauts, but the song Inhale Einstein received a bit of airplay on college radio back in the late 80s. With all the heated rhetoric about fascism, and with unacceptable comparisons of the current president to Hitler, this song came to mind:

I like the central conceit of this song, the notion that we should inhale the Einstein particles floating around while exhaling the Hitler molecules that contaminate the atmosphere. I completely agree that we should embrace our potential for creativity, humor, altruism, and the pursuit of knowledge, and eschew our potential for authoritarianism, rage, hatred, and the pursuit of power.

The video is interesting... the cast looks like a bunch of genuine grad students, rather than a group of model/actress/waitstaff-looking-for-a-break. I could actually see these people sitting through a physics lecture.

There you have it.

The problem with GOBP isn't merely that they've been snorting Hitler, they've actually gone on to freebasing.

Homeopathic Hitler. Dilution in the atmosphere merely makes him stronger.
