Energy!

Here’s a very cool 10-minute summary of our one-hour comedy quiz show on energy that took place last November (Funny You Should Think That! 6). It features Andrew Cody, David Pryde, Jonathan Jarry, Chris Sandiford, and Darren Henwood (and his mustache).

Enjoy!

Watch: How Vaccines Work

Cracked Science

The Patient Education Office of the McGill University Health Centre has just released a video to educate the public on the importance of vaccination. And who guides us through the mechanism of action of one of our most effective public health measures? Dr. Christopher Labos… in cartoon form.

If you like the video, please send it to your friends and family. You don’t need a Ph.D. to understand it; this is meant to be understood by the population at large.

And damn you, Dr. Labos, for getting drawn before me. I’m calling Matt Groening.

Cracked Science Video 4: Irreproducible

Cracked Science

We often hear the science corrects itself in the long run, but how efficient is this mechanism? Jonathan Jarry reports that reproducibility in the scientific literature is not always a given.

Cracked Science Video 3: Homeopathy

Cracked Science

It’s October 23rd or 10-23, which has been suggested as Homeopathy Awareness Day, in homage to Avogradro’s number.

Today is as good a day as any to investigate the claims made by homeopathy.

Reading about homeopathy is one thing; seeing the dilutions is another. I hope this is graphic enough for you.

I have also published a public science article on homeopathy in the Prince Arthur Herald as a companion piece.
