A weekly show hosted by John Green, where knowledge junkies get their fix of trivia-tastic information. This week, John looks at common spelling and grammar errors such as "Stationery vs. Stationary," "Good vs. Well" and "Loose vs. Lose."
It is frequently discussed whether it is possible to sink in lava. Due to its high density, a person would generally be expected to remain on the surface. Indeed it is possible to briefly walk on certain types of lava if professional heat-protective clothing is worn (do not try yourself). However, the video shows that falling from a height, a person would be able to penetrate the crust of the lake and submerge in it. The test was performed with a box of camp waste (largely food rests) in a bin bag. Estimated weight 30kg, Size 60x60x60cm. Fall height, about 80m. The lake reacts with violent lava fountaining activity, presumably in part due to steam produced from the organic matter.
The lava lake at Erta Ale has persisted for many years and contains relatively fluid basaltic lava. Only few volcanoes have such lakes.

As machines take on more jobs, many find themselves out of work or with raises indefinitely postponed. Is this the end of growth? No, says Erik Brynjolfsson -- it's simply the growing pains of a radically reorganized economy. A riveting case for why big innovations are ahead of us ... if we think of computers as our teammates. Be sure to watch the opposing viewpoint from Robert Gordon.
The US economy has been expanding wildly for two centuries. Are we witnessing the end of growth? Economist Robert Gordon lays out 4 reasons US growth may be slowing, detailing factors like epidemic debt and growing inequality, which could move the US into a period of stasis we can't innovate our way out of. Be sure to watch the opposing viewpoint from Erik Brynjolfsson.
"The Mother of All Demos" is a name given retrospectively to Douglas Engelbart's December 9, 1968, demonstration of experimental computer technologies that are now commonplace. The live demonstration featured the introduction of the computer mouse, video conferencing, teleconferencing, hypertext, word processing, hypermedia, object addressing and dynamic file linking, bootstrapping, and a collaborative real-time editor.
The Mandelbrot set -- someone has called it the thumb-print of God -- is one of the most beautiful and remarkable discoveries in the entire history of mathematics. Arthur C. Clarke describes this phenomenon.
Author, teacher and activist, Clay Shirky, discusses the visionary insights of Marshall McLuhan as well as his own ideas about the effects of new media and social networking on our society. Shirky's latest book Cognitive Surplus explores how new technology is unleashing a wave of creative production that he believes is transforming the world. Following the lecture, Shirky sits down for an interview with broadcaster Jesse Hirsh. The event was part of the McLuhan 100 series at the International Festival of Authors at Harbourfront Centre.
NO, this is not real... obviously a fake but had me with the first two sounds, which may or may not be real.
Now I seriously want a bird that can beatbox the Sienfeld theme even though I know they don't exist, pretty funny though... I'll have to purchase the original "The Life of Birds" DVD now to see if those first two sounds were real or added still can't decide.
Buy it yourself below if its also bugging you:
Presented under the arch of an ancient, pagan-style temple, the European Central Bank launched the new euro-series in a manner reminiscent of ancient rites performed by ancient peoples.
The European Central Bank chose Europa, an ancient Greek moon goddess who was raped by Zeus when he came to her in the form of a bull. Is it a premonition that the European people are about to be raped by the "almighty central bank" and its robber barons after a short-lived fake bull market?
Let's hope not...
