level 1

The interviewer died inside yet saw no pearly gates, hence the expression.

level 2

He is actually dead now btw, passed away end of 2019. His Dad fought in the Irish War of Independence and they were a devoutly religious, catholic family which was especially common at the time given the centuries of torment and suffering in Ireland, religion became hugely influential as it gave people hope.

level 2

I don’t know if the interviewer was religious but when his eyes started to roll upwards, after Stephen had torn god a new asshole, it felt a lot like he was searching for a whataboutism to counter what Stephen was saying.

level 1

There’s something just so satisfying and pleasant about listening to a stately British gentleman say the world “capriciousness.” Hitchens used it all the time, too.

level 2

Goodness I miss Christopher Hitchens. I can’t believe he’s been gone for 9 years already. I absolutely loved his debate on God with Tony Blair.

level 1

Curious as to which insects burrow from the back of the eyes outward 😳 Is this a common thing in 3rd world countries? Or even 1st world?

level 2

Loa loa worm, as a user pointed out below

level 2

There’s also a specific bacteria that attaches to contact lens that burrow INTO the eye.

level 1

Tbh, I would happily listen to Stephen Fry talk about any subject.

level 2

Check out episodes of QI on YouTube!

level 2

Have you listened to his podcast series -“The seven deadly sins” and “The great leap years”? They are an absolute treat.

Also, there was a recent interview of him by Lawrence Krauss in which Stephen covers a lot of grounds about his life, work and beliefs.

level 2

He does a lot of audio books. He does a great Harry Potter, and Winnie the Pooh. I also liked his Sherlock Holmes, though it could have had more excitement to it.
