There are quite a few engineers/scientists on Forumosa, and I think y’all would enjoy this guy’s videos. He builds the most random stuff in his garage (or blows stuff up in his yard) and explains not just how to build them but all the physics/chemistry behind them.

He’s basically Professor Utonium, or maybe Bruce Wayne. I’m actually quite surprised he hasn’t been kidnapped by ISIS and forced to build them an arsenal of 22nd-century weapons.

This is one of his tamer presentations.

I just came across this TED talk about how science works, by the late Kary Mullis (the inventor of the PCR process). His manner and enthusiasm reminds me of Richard Feynman, although I don’t think Feynman had ADHD. Well worth watching whether or not you have a science background.

Amazing.

She’s doing better than most, she’s actually trying to think it through.

That kind of initiative would get you a senior management role these days.

I bet she went on to set up a new company, it went huge, then they upgraded to Windows 8 and it all came crashing down.

Very cool series.

@oldboy1 you mentioned you like clunkers, you might like this guy on Youtube. This is an example of his early stuff.
He’s a bit more corporate these days, but still entertaining.
