    This is a video of a guy demonstrating Lenz's Law with neodymium magnets and a thick-ass copper tube. Why does the magnet fall so slowly? SCIENCE. Via Wikipedia because I suck at explaining things except 1) where babies come from and 2) RPG strategies. Eddy currents (also... / Continue →

    This is a video of magician Jose Ahonen showing dogs a treat, then making it disappear right in front of their eyes. They get so confused. I would have just bitten his fingers and considered that my treat. Mmmm, human sausage. By a show of hands, how many of you still peel... / Continue →

    This are Erik Aberg's Ghostcubes, a bunch of different interconnected cardboard cube designs that behave in magical ways. You really just have to watch the video to appreciate them, because they're hard to describe. Kind of like your beauty. Like, radiant doesn't do you just... / Continue →

    This is a video of a picture of a desktop that's been printed to appear 3-D when viewed from just the right perspective. It's really flat though -- just like Earth! "Earth isn't flat." Oh really? Have you conducted experiments yourself to prove that or are you just taking s... / Continue →

    In promising unemployment news, the ancient ruins of Stonehenge are seeking their first general manager. Job responsibilities presumably include sleeping in late, making sure nothing has fallen over, and leaving work early. What is Stonehenge anyways? I always imagined they'... / Continue →

    This is a video of a large wooden table that can expand into an even larger wooden table with a couple latch pulls and a twist. The Fletcher Capstan Table is made by Fletcher Burwell-Taylor Ltd and ranges in price from $50,000-$70,000. *spitting up tacos* Did that just say $... / Continue →
