Laying on the couch bored last night.
Clicked my StumbleUpon link to bring up interesting websites.

Came across a site that rocked my earthly world…..       Veritasium.com

Why does the earth spin?
How was the earth formed?

Are just two of the videos that really got me to think.

Seemingly simple questions that you would think everyone would or should know.
While I was embarrassed that I could not answer some to the proposed questions, I am glad that I spent an hour of my life  watching the fascinating videos. The goal of the videos is not to make you feel like an idiot but to help explain of some of the basic laws of science.

These are not just for students  but for everyone.

Highly recommended. Perhaps they can be used as an intro to a class.
