Fun Friday: Fun Science

Today we focus on fun science, and we go from interesting video’s to the truly insane.  Don’t we all have a friend who caused a large explosion in their own house on Thanksgiving and burned off their eyebrows?  Today’s Fun Friday dedicated to my friend Keith.  And as such let me just say I’m posting these videos for entertainment purposes only an idiot would do this stuff at home and would probably earn a Darwin Award in the process, you’ve been warned.

First a video a roundup of the highlights from 2012 for NPRs Science Friday  http://www.sciencefriday.com/video/01/04/2013/reel-science-friday-2012-highlights.html
