As often happens in the web, things are great while you're looking for the other.

In this particular case I was looking for an alternative to YouTube that would allow you to view and upload videos in high resolution. They then entered into a portal that seemed to have precisely these characteristics, but I was immediately catapulted into another dimension.

I have indeed made the acquaintance of a man who quickly became one of my myths. The person subject to this cult called Robert Krampf who is a geologist by profession but has become a myth to me when I discovered that since 1998, runs a mailing list titled "Experiment of the Week" every week where he basically describes, in a fun and easily understood, one aspect of our universe.

But even more amazing is that for about a year some of the experiments described in the nearly decade-long presence in his mailing list, have been "converted" to video and it is through these videos that I just have to appreciate the huge capacity of this man to explain complex topics through simple examples.

The videos are of a rare beauty, or because they present with a very high resolution either because, like the mailing list, explaining in clear and understandable to anyone, some of the most bizarre aspects of physics.

It starts, for example, the experiment with the balloon in the car that moves on the wrong side during the motion of the machine that I used as a question in my previous post

As you can see the video is really well done and the explanation is clear and obvious even for those who do not chew much of it English or physics.

There are many other movies really interesting, from how to make emergency glasses with a leaf

approaching a shell to your ear because you hear the ocean

a thousand ways to overthrow a full glass of water without spilling a drop.

And the list of tests and answers to common places is really long. Currently there are more than 50 movies and, of course, the number is growing week by week.

If you are concerned then you're in physics or simply curious to know if it is true that the tablets were immersed in mentos coca cola produce those huge geysers that are seen in various networked video, I recommend you visit the site of Robert Krampf and watch all her videos. You `ll surely love as it is myself.
