Is The 5-Second Rule True? is just one of the many videos published by VSauce over at youtube. One of many science bloggers, Michael discusses a given topic from multiple angles in 10 minutes, following so many threads through that one topic. As a result, although the video is 10 minutes long, no one thread lasts more than about minute, allowing him to cover several different ideas all around that one topic in the given time. This one is answering 5 questions from viewers.
Another of my favorites is this video, on water. Water is an astonishing molecule, essential to life, and it is because of water that I’ve opted to go into immunology. In this video, Michael discusses multiple different topics, all related to water, in honor of World Water Day.
While not all of VSauce’s videos are science related, they are fascinating and entertaining, even when they aren’t.
