Hardly incredible, possibly inedible?

For no particular reason whatsoever...I'll share my favorite (parody) Emily Dickinson poem . I'll tell you how the fart rose,-- A dark fume at a time. The classroom swam in methane, The fumes like rockets flew. Went right into our nostrils, The sickness begun. Then I said softly to myself, "I t...

Re: Common Questions

Free-falling objects experience the same acceleration no matter their mass. Neglecting air friction. Just to be perfectly correct... Actually, when he stipulated "freely falling" (just to be gramnmatically correct), he removed any forces acting on the body, other than gravity. So we need ...

Re: Favorite home experiments

My current favorite experiment is seeing what interesting scenarios I can come up with for pyrotechnic-grade powdered magnesium. It makes a great white 'splodey flash-fire when you have it suspended in the air in the presence of an open flame. Later it'll likely be when I try to make my own thermal ...

Re: "Important Life Lesson" Discussion

Actually, I think my wife would dig "Power Rangers," the theme song to "Thundercats," or even "Voltron." Then again she has a warped sense of humor equal to my own. :) And apparently for those of us who watched Power Rangers when it was new, it's now verified that our c...

Does video-making count as "art"?

I had seen a number of other mediums covered, but not as much making film or online video. For about a year, I've been trying to create entertaining videos following a "Mad Scientist" genre, most with some actual scientific content, some were just funny (to me at least). I was just wonderi...
