Claims of the Normal #21: 2011-05-09

- Published Mon, May 9, 2011 by Arkenor Oakshadow, Breki Tomasson and Petter Mårtensson

Between suffering from technical issues that plagued the entire evening, we finally got a show together, and it’s a good one!

We talked about the normal things – Sony being a hot contender for “Most Talked About Topic on Claims of The Normal … Ever!”, but also got around to talking about Twitter buying Tweetdeck, dogs used in warfare as soldiers, Ubisoft making movies – we hope for an Assassin’s Creed movie soon – and scientists being months away from discovering antigravity.

The remainder of the show was all about the Nobel Peace Prize, which we think deserves a new name.

In other news, Quiz Kids saw an upset in more ways than one as the outcome became something quite different than we had grown to expect!


Claims of the Normal

Claims of the Normal was the first show to launch on the CSICON Network. Originally intended as the only show to run on the website csicon.org (the 'con' in CSICON stands for Claims of the Normal, after all), it quickly became the launch vehicle for so much more. Breki and Petter started the show, and got Arkenor on board, and it all just went from there.

The show, over time, was replaced by The MMOsketeers, starring Petter, Arkenor and Teppo, as well as Instanews, starring Breki and Jack. None of these shows exist in their original form, but the legacy created by Claims of the Normal lives on.
