Ive been pouring 7 different metals into a 24" tall aquarium over the weekend, and the results have been super cool! I poured metals with different melting points to see if they had any different effects when they came in contact with water. From Pewter (350f/170c) all the way to Thermite (4000f/2204c). Some of them exploded, some of them sank and made molten metal drippy-castles, but they were all interesting.
I describe how I made a stop motion animation of a phonograph needle in an LP groove using an electron microscope.

Back in 2007 Irish-American comedian, Des Bishop, spent a year learning the Irish language well enough to perform a successful stand-up routine in the language of his forebears. Understandable perhaps, given his background. But why on Earth would that same comedian travel all the way to China, learn Mandarin Chinese, and then not merely try to perform in Chinese, but actually help establish a stand-up comedy scene in a country where one barely existed? That’s just one of the questions Fergus Thompson has for this mold-breaking, multilingual man of comedy in this week’s episode of “On the Level”.
