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.

Related to How can you measure Earth’s circumference with the sun? Eratosthenes answers…

Is it Better to Walk or Run in the Rain?

Today as I walked home it started to rain. I instantly remember I had to share this video someday. It concerns a question that you maybe have asked yourself (Is it better to walk or run in the rain?). It is old but gold. I hope you like it and you may want to subscribe this mesmerizing channel. It shares “cool physics and other sweet science”. Have a nice day 😀

Changing the way you see teenagers… We all know what is typical in a teenager, we all have that stereotyped vision about them… they are highly vulnerable to peer pressure, influenced persons, dreamers, lovers, fouls and believe they have the capacities for doing extraordinary things. I could argue that they have a lot of courage but not a lot of wisdom because we know that there are feats that only an adult can make.

In spite of this fact, once a while some kid appears and turn all the preconceptions upside down and do some unbelievable stuff and in this conference this is what happened…
