Claims of the Normal #62: Superman is Not Made of Lightsabers

40 mins - Published Mon, Nov 14, 2011 by Arkenor Oakshadow, Breki Tomasson and Petter Mårtensson

This week, I sit down with Arkenor and Petter, and we talk about how difficult life can be.

Here are a couple of things you may or may not find interesting:

  • Today is Arkenor’s birthday. Tweet a “Happy birthday!” to him over on Twitter: @Arkenor
  • Filmjölk (also known as fil or the older word surmjölk) is a Nordic dairy product similar to yoghurt using a different bacteria which gives a different taste and texture.
  • Mycoplasma (not Ebola) has been a bad thing these past couple of days. Shun thee, Mycoplasma Pneumoniae!
  • Charlie Sheen and Moammar Gadaffi soundbites can be eerily similar.
  • Superman is not made of lightsabers.


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.
