Apparently, it was you, the guy that told you and the octopus.
No one else knew. Are you ok with us knowing with you?

Really neat. You can pan around and up and down with your mouse or WASD keys, or just move your tablet around if you are on a mobile device on the Youtube app.

Shock and Awe.
by Jim Al-Khalili

I have never seen a better explanation.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gtp51eZkwoI

Edit: I have heard and read about Nikola Tesla's last years in the past.
This documentary describes some of the stunts Nikola Tesla performed.

As I put what little I know about human brain physiology and the high voltage he exposed his body to together,
I can't help but think, "He had central nervous system damage. Of course, he did."

What a shame.
Yes. It is sad.
But...It's not much of a mystery.

Message to geniuses and to others:
Don't hit yourself in the head with a hammer.
And; Don't send that kind of voltage through your body.

I heard this on NPR last January and thought it was pretty funny. It came up in conversation with a friend today, at which point I discovered that there's a YouTube video of it (once you follow the non-YouTube link below), so I thought I may as well post it here. Enjoy.

I don't typically link to my own Youtube videos on this site (nor typically post in this thread in the first place) but I figured I may as well this time since this one has (relatively) more reason to be of interest to people on this site than my other ones.

[YTP] Cosmos, 35th Anniversary

Essentially it's a collection of a few of the jokes I had in mind about this series for months now and finally have an excuse to use them!

Come to think of it, an older video of mine, YTP short: "What if you're wrong, Twilight?" is sort of similar if only for being a sentenced-mixed video making reference to a famous scientist. And featuring MLP:FIM characters.

EDIT: Swapped the former title of the newer video for the current title of the newer video.
