Happy Hobbit: Acorns - Episode 06

Image
Ever wondered how to make acorns edible? Join Kili as she explains how to process this abundant nut, and learn just what Tolkien meant when he said Bilbo was so hungry that he could have eaten acorns... NOTE: I used acorns from California Live Oak, which are very bitter. If you have access to White Oak acorns, they're much less bitter!

CoolHardLogic: Testing Geocentrism - Part 1

Image
Earth is in danger! Ignorance started spreading around this promising planet. There must be done something against it. CoolHardLogic tries to stand up against the idiocy of the Blue Planet. This is Part one in a series on geocentrism - this video takes a wry look at the subject and how it stacks up against basic observations. This part looks at whether the geocentrist explanation of the seasons holds any merit, why Polaris doesn't move and how basic observations of the inner and outer planets hold up to the ideas of the geocentrist. A simple introduction is given to relevant concepts, providing topic pointers for the viewer who wants to find out more for themselves.

Way to go, CoolHardLogic! Backing up the Science Department, yay!
