In 1988, sci-fi author David Langford posited the idea of a 'basilisk' - an image that crashes the human brain by triggering impossible thoughts. The concept has since been developed further, sometimes including audio in addition to visuals (like in Snow Crash), but for the most part these basilisks are depicted as fractals or other computer-generated imagery. Rob & Jim come to you today with a terrible discovery: the Langford Basilisk is real, and it is Timefighters in the Land of Fantasy. Topics discussed as our synapses break down include bird underwear, surprise fursuits, and the secret altruism of the Pied Piper of Hamelin.
