Understanding the Universe Has Never Been So Funny
You won't be able to explain the universe after watching this, but at least you'll get a good laugh at trying to.
This hilarious video seeks to spell out how the universe works. Yeah, it's heady stuff and there's no way you're going to absorb it all in four minutes, but you're certainly going to enjoy all the quick one-liners ("Carmen Electron?" That's pure gold.).
The British writer Eden Phillpotts once said, "The universe is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper." He has a good point, except in this case our wit can't possibly grow sharper than anything the narrator is saying.
The universe is indeed magical and mysterious, but who beside Stephen Hawking could have possibly thought it would also be so full of chuckles?
