2 technical things I actually know about on one show, I was pretty surprised. I'll start with the more complex (that I understand less)

Shorting Stocks: The way to make money when a stock plummets is to arrange to short it. This is basically a bet that the price of the stock will drop but just like any other bet, you have to set it up in advance. So the guy isn't buying a bunch of Target stock after it drops, he's betting that it will drop and then making sure that it does. It's like fixing a fight or cheating at cards.

More info at Wiki


Eating Brains: All different kinds of animal brains are considered delicacies in different cultures and subcultures. It's weird but it's a thing that is.
Squirrels have bigger brains than you'd think (I work with hamsters, which are tiny, and their brains are about the size of a half walnut. Im' thinking a squirrel's has to be larger than an average walnut)

Doesn't matter though, to catch a prion disease you don't have to actually eat the brain. Those people in England that got Mad-Cow disease were just eating the meat of infected cows, not the brains. The prions (mutant, misshapen proteins) are all throughout the animal, they just happen to affect the brain in way that becomes fatal. The squirrel guy might have been eating the brains, or he could just have been eating squirrel meat and the reporter was lazy or didn't understand, or the editor wanted a more exciting headline. That shit happens all the time and I wouldn't be surprised if the reporting was fucked up.

The thing about prion diseases is that all the known ones can easily cross the species barrier into other mammals and cooking them doesn't get rid of the danger. That's why they killed almost the entire beef herd in England and Scotland when the mad cow thing went down. Even now, years later, it's illegal to import British beef to a lot of countries.

Thrumps 'science' argument is pretty ill-informed say the least but saying 'science' on this topic comes from botany is also pretty ridiculous.

If your gonna bodge botany into this subject (which you really shouldn't) then you could argue that it deals sex and not gender. As it deals with reproduction and not how the plant thinks/feels. You can't have it both ways. Ether gender is a social construct, a spectrum of your self-truth,... or is it based on your reproduction system.

Families that eat brains follow only certain rituals. "Someone comes by the house with just the head of a squirrel," Dr. Weisman said, "and gives it to the matriarch of the family. She shaves the fur off the top of the head and fries the head whole. The skull is cracked open at the dinner table and the brains are sucked out." It is a gift-giving ritual. The second most popular way to prepare squirrel brains is to scramble them in white gravy, he said, or to scramble them with eggs. In each case, the walnut-sized skull is cracked open and the brains are scooped out for cooking.

Pretty sure if there was a way he got it that wasn't eating brains, he would've said so to the doctor. I wouldn't volunteer the fact I ate the brains, would you?

Anything would taste good scrambled with eggs and covered in white gravy. Bring it on
