Under his alter-egotistical nom de plume, RageBoy, he has entertained and enlightened thousands of readers from some of the world's largest companies, governments, and institutions - including those from which he's managed to escape." "Now for the first time in browser-free format, The Bombast Transcripts brings together the best of his worst. And his worst is very good indeed. Marvel along as one of America's foremost social critics interviews pop media superstars such as Sayanarology's Moe Ron Hubbard, Godzilla, Mr. Ed, and, in a twisted hall-of-mirrors tour de force, RageBoy himself. Tremble in awe as mysteries of the universe unfold, from surreal new perspectives on thermodynamics and cutting-edge neurophysiology to some of the best sex-drugs-and-rock-n-roll escapades this side of Sing Sing. Thrill to obfuscation so arcane you'll need to be sedated. Laugh so hard you'll think you have been."--Jacket."
