Magnets How Do They Work?

The Insane Clown Posse in the song “Miracles” asks “Fuckin’ magnets how do they work?” which they attribute to miracles.

Well Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope this is how they fucking work.

A friendly reminder that science will always set you in your place.


And Yet It Moves

Galileo Galilei was punished for denying that the Earth was the center of the universe, he used scientific evidence but was up against the Catholic church and some Bible quotes that claimed otherwise. The Catholic Church kind of got around to apologizing almost 400 years later, the Bible though has not released an updated version.

Galileo is also famous for showing that the weight of an object doesn’t affect the speed of its fall, here is an example on the Moon (where there is no wind resistance)-

Galileo is also mentioned in the Beastie Boys classic “The Sounds of Science

I usually don’t link to Buzzfeed but Sulu aka George Takei made me do it.

Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one and they all stink.

Stephen Hawking’s Time Traveler Party

Stephen Hawking, arguably the most famous contemporary scientist, despite suffering from Lou Gehrig’s disease has, as this video shows, a great sense of humor. Though to be fair it only covers the case of people being able to travel back in time, the case of people traveling to the future was not part of this experiment. You should also check out M.C.
