I decided to put here a TED-Ed video, I know that it isn’t a regular TED, however this video is special and takes only 7 min.!

In our academic life, as well as in our daily life, we’ve always found things that we couldn’t understand. And probably in most of the cases we entrust in others to decipher those things because we are not able to do it… In this brilliant talk Adam Savage, a former co-host in Discovery Channel series “MythBusters” and “Unchained Reaction”, attempts to debunk this assertion. From Eratosthenes to Richard Feynman, he presents us knowledge that started from simple ideas that everyone can discover from their experience.
