Red hair is caused by a series of mutations in the MC1R (melanocortin 1 receptor), a gene located on chromosome 16. Because it’s a recessive trait, it must be inherited from BOTH parents for hair to be red… thanks mom and dad. Because of this genetic phenomenon far more people carry the mutation than people who actually have red hair. In Scotland, approximately 13% of the population are red heads, although up to 40% carry at least on mutation. 2. The 45th parallel is a natural boundary for red hair. Under the 45th parallel the UV rays become so strong that its is no longer and advantage to have very fair skin. In the northern latitudes where sunlight is sparse lighter skin has an advantage as lighter skin improves the ability to absorb light and produce Vitamin D. Which also means redheads are more susceptible to sunburn 3. The frequency of red hair is highest in Ireland (10-30%), Scotland (10-25%), followed by Wales (10 to 15%). The distribution matches very well to ancient Celtic and Germanic civilizations. 4. although red hair is so awesome, red heads have less hair on their heads! In terms of totally number of hair strands red heads have 90,000 strands where as blonde 110,000 and brunettes with 140,000. While they may have less hairs, the hair strand is much thicker leading to an appearance of thinker fuller hair. This apparently makes it easier to style…so having red hair saves time on “getting ready time” 5. Red heads don’t go grey! The red hair pigment doesn’t actually turn grey but rather fades with age from faded copper, to rosy-blonde, to then silvery white. 6. Red hair and blue eyes are the most rare humans on the face of the planet! Since both red hair and blue eyes are a recessive trait only 1% of the worlds population has this combination. 100 times more rare than finding a four leaf clover on the first try! 7. Red hair is super rare! Less than 2% of the worlds population has red hair. This is approximately 140 million people. 8. They are sweet like honey… sorta. Several studies have shown bees are more attracted to red heads. 9. Red heads take pain differently. According to the outcomes research institute of the university if Louisville red heads are more sensitive to thermal pain, but less sensitive to electrical pain. They also require 20% more anesthesia to be sedated! Tough cookies 10. In greek mythology, all red heads turn into vampires when they die. Bonus: because red is such a strong pigment, red hair is much harder to dye. Bonus: Red heads are more likely to be left handed. Recessive traits often happen in pairs so people who have the gene for red hair also have the gene for left handed-ness Follow Nickipedia Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/nickuhas Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/nickuhas Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/uhasbrand Production Team: Writer/Producer: Nick Uhas Editor: Aaron Shafer Music Composer Intro "Jingle": Aaron Shafer DP: Sam Mosco Sound: Matt Vieira Sources: http://www.instructables.com/id/4-leaf-Clovers%3A-A-Finder-s-Guide/ http://indiebookweek.com/2013/03/21/just-who-are-these-redheads-anyway/ http://boredomtherapy.com/facts-about-redheads/ http://www.cosmopolitan.co.uk/beauty-hair/hair/a32357/redhead-facts/ http://www.eupedia.com/genetics/origins_of_red_hair.shtml http://www.livescience.com/39095-redhead-health-risks.html http://www.everydayhealth.com/skin-and-beauty-pictures/6-fiery-facts-about-redheads.aspx#03 http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/emmakelly/redhead-facts_b_4781153.html

HUGE Foam EXPLOSION!!! Dangerously Large

SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/pbL27vGZijw This experiment scared the SH@T out of me!!! The Today Show asked me to come back on TV to perform more science experiments, but they said they wanted TO GO BIG!!! So I thought to myself about how I could amp things up. It dawned on me that the one limiting factor for the “elephant toothpaste” or “Foam Fountain of Science” experiment was getting the reactive ingredients to combine on a larger scale quick enough, but also in a fashion that wouldn’t blow up in my face. The solution? Shot gunning the chemical reactants from a collapsible 16.9 Fl OZ water bottle into a 3-gallon refillable drinking water container. The result was astounding! The bottle created so much pressure you can actually see it jump 4 inches off the bucket it was standing on! The actual foam fountain went about 30+ feet (about 9.1 meters) in the air. After trying this out, I’m 100% sure this experiment is TOO BIG for the Today Show. There would be no way to contain the hydrogen peroxide-potassium iodide mixture. Even with a slight wind the foam would fall all over the crowd in the plaza. Looks like this experiment will live in one place… The NICKIPEDIA channel : ) Follow Nickipedia Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/nickuhas Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/nickuhas Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/uhasbrand Nickipedia Website: http://www.nickipedia.com Production Team: Writer/Producer: Nick Uhas Editor: Griffin Louis DP: Sam Mosco Sources: http://www.using-hydrogen-peroxide.com/elephant-toothpaste.html https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydrogen_peroxide http://www.wikihow.com/Make-Elephant-Toothpaste

You Are Running Wrong
 
05:14
SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/KVKmPjKsVt4 You’re running wrong!!! And I know what you’re saying… nah nah, I’ve been doing it like this since I was 6… but hey just because you’ve done it your whole life doesn’t mean you’ve been doing it CORRECTLY. This topic became super important to me when I decide to run a marathon… yes a 26.2 mile full marathon. And I was sober when I made this decision, it was one of those things I wanted to cross it off the “life” bucket list. And while training for my marathon I ran Into a different style of running. During my weekend long runs I would hit mile 11 and my knees would start to hurt. The pain was centralized right beneath my kneecap, and became so bad I contemplated … calling an Uber or worse…. walking … the ultimate fail for marathon training. Since the running-shoe industry wouldn’t be invented for another 1,960,000 years, the earliest humans ran barefoot, which is a very different running style than what we are used to today. In the modern age we are much more familiar with a style that reflects the addition of cushy foam or air filled souls. While these shoes were designed to “correct” runner’s strides and reduce stress on the body they might actually be doing the opposite. In fact having cushy souls is not a pre-requisite for running very long distances like the marathon I was training for. For example the Japanese Marathon Monks run over 50 miles a day for 100 days and only with straw handmade running shoes! And the Tarahumara people of Northwest Mexico have a tradition of running 200 miles in just under two days…using minimalistic footwear that look a lot like flip-flops. What does the proper form look like? This new form has your foot hitting the ground directly underneath your hips, with your back straight (not slouching forward)… Your shoulders should be low and loose with your hands slightly open as if your holding a potato ship without crushing it. You’ll be looking forward with your eyes scanning the horizon with a straight neck and level chin….and for the record, because this come so much in running forums, it actually doesn’t matter what part of your foot hits first (heel, mid, toe strike on screen) as long as your foot is landing directly underneath you. So the next time you go for a run or if you’re training for a long distance race try, what I call the “poop in the pants method”…it’s not only the form of our early running ancestors but also the form that will save your body from injury in the long run Follow Nickipedia Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/nickuhas Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/nickuhas Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/uhasbrand Production Team: Writer/Producer: Nick Uhas Editor: Aaron Shafer Music Composer Intro "Jingle": Aaron Shafer DP: Sam Mosco Sound: Matt Vieira Sources: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tarahumara_people http://www.runnersworld.com/barefoot-running-minimalism/new-study-reaches-different-conclusion-on-kenyan-foot-strikes http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Running http://www.chrismcdougall.com/born-to-run/the-barefoot-running-debate/ http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2004/11/041123163757.htm http://www.runnersworld.com/injury-treatment/forward-lean-while-running-might-reduce-knee-pain http://www.barefootrunning.fas.harvard.edu/4BiomechanicsofFootStrike.html http://www.runnersworld.com/barefoot-running-minimalism/new-study-reaches-different-conclusion-on-kenyan-foot-strikes http://www.footsmart.com/health-resource-center/leg/knee-pain http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2004/11/041123163757.htm http://www.der.org/films/marathon-monks.html http://www.chrismcdougall.com/born-to-run/the-barefoot-running-debate/ https://www.newscientist.com/article/dn6681-evolution-made-humans-marathon-runners/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rar%C3%A1muri_people http://www.runnersworld.com/running-tips/perfect-running-form http://greatist.com/move/proper-running-form-tips

Do Aliens Exist?
 
06:17
SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/aV9GG9bHUMI Why aren’t there any aliens? Space is like, ridiculously huge. They’ve got to be out there, right? So far, we got nothing. This is actually a very real scientific conundrum that some of the greatest human minds that have ever existed have tackled for a super long time now. It’s known as the Fermi Paradox, and in this episode of Nickipedia, we dive right in and try and figure out why no aliens are texting us back. Today we’re gonna focus on the basics of this subject, But before we can ask why no alien love, we need a little background. According to the Drake Equation, there should be plenty of plants like ours. Even with the most conservative figures the result is close to 40 billion earth like planets orbiting habitable zones of other stars… meaning the Galaxy is just bursting with Earth-like planets that are in the so-called Goldilocks zone of their local star systems. This is the heart of the Fermi Paradox, named after the famous Physicist Enrico Fermi who put it like this: "Where my aliens at, yo?”… So what’s the deal? Do we smell bad? Are we just not cool enough for alien g-chats? Scientists have suggested a variety of theories, so we’re gonna crank through them just like one of my favorite youtubers, “Matthew Santoro” Extraterrestrial life is incredibly rare or does not exist. Plain and simple. And you thought you were part of the “special trophy generation” before! Maybe there are aliens but they’re not intelligent. Think Animal Planet, but for realsies. No people. No phones, resulting in no phone home. Maybe they exist, and they are intelligent, but they’re too primitive to use radio. Like, say, humanity up until like the last hundred years or so. It is the nature of intelligent life to destroy itself. Whether it’s Terminators, Matrix Machines, climate change, or genetically engineered flying shark-nados, humanity better get it together or its GAME OVER super buzzkilly. It is the nature of intelligent life to destroy others. Even more buzzkilly. That means as other more advanced civilizations explore space, the act of exploring itself destroys other potential intelligent species. Like if we land on an alien planet and step on the one plant that ever existed there. Alien intelligence exists, but goes extinct before it can call us, maybe. Intelligent civilizations exist, but they’re just too far away from one another for any meaningful communication to occur. They exist, but travel and communication is too expensive. Interstellar space rates are outrageous They exist but we haven’t been listening long enough to know. They exist, but we aren’t listening properly. So like, they’re on Instagram and we’re still stuck on Myspace. They exist, but the window between when they can send radio transmissions and when they either go extinct or destroy themselves or lose interest is brief. It only took us about fifty years to go from using radio to using nuclear bombs. What could go wrong? The exist, but like your friend who spends every waking hour playing video games they lock themselves away and have no interest in contacting anyone. They exist, but they are just too alien. Like beyond anything we can imagine and therefore beyond anything we can communicate with. Like trying to skype with a jelly fish.. that’s a no go. They exist, and they’re listening, but no one is transmitting. We’ve only sent a few messages out and even those were controversial. Bottom line, it may be existentially dangerous to send messages to advances smarter more advanced spacefaring civilizations think Independence Day. They exist, but they’re not talking to us on purpose. Maybe they don’t like us. Maybe we’re just not that interesting. They exist, but we are isolated for a reason. Maybe were in an intergalactic zoo? They exist, and they are here, but they’re hiding. They exist, they are here, but we just don’t or can’t see them. Maybe we’re not looking in the right place. Like they’re too big, or too small, or occupy a dimension we don’t have access to?

World Record Soda Mentos Geyser

SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/82BiZ1NFYhM We BROKE the WORLD RECORD for the Largest Soda Mentos Geyser!!!!! We could not have done this without the help of the LACI (Los Angeles Clean Tech Incubator). They are currently running an IndieGoGo to sell memberships. If you are in the LA area or would like to sponsor a membership please go to this link: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/what-will-you-make-today-design--2#/ Mentos on the surface look very smooth however at microscopic level they tons of mini little crevasses (like peaks and valleys) and its in these little areas that are know as nucleation sites. They trap little tiny pockets of air, and when the dissolved CO2 hits these nucleation sites it forms a bubble. The bubbles grow with additional C02 dissolving into them until they are buoyant enough to rise to the top of the container. If we add enough Mentos, we will get A LOT of CO2 bubbles forming, so many in fact that it will turn to what we call a foam fountain. AND if we have a system that creates pressure of this foam we can direct it and send it easily over 5 meters or roughly 16 feet. And that’s exactly what we did! Here are the specs for how we broke the record. -About 20 L of soda (Diet Coke… research on the internet suggests this is the best due to high C02 levels and the aspartame working as a surfactant, weakening surface tension and allowing the fizz to break free faster) -9 packs of Mentos -Carbonating the soda with cold soda to get as much CO2 dissolved as possible -Used a poly carbonate 5 gallon water jug -Created a Mentos dropping devise with a 3D printer to easily drop Mentos, redirect the soda stream, and maximize pressure.

Now, fables and fish stories are fine and good for play, but what happens when these exaggerations wind up got for so long they end up in school books? So to autocorrect history I’m going to share with you the TOP 27 Historical Lies! “America became independent on July 4, 1776” - The Declaration of Independence might’ve been signed on July 4, 1776, The Revolutionary would continue for seven more years before King George III and the former colonies agreed upon terms on September 3, 1783. Walt Disney Was Frozen After His Death - Walt Disney has passed on and you can visit him and many other celebrity graves over at Forest Lawn Memorial park in Glendale, California. Pocahontas fell in love with John Smith and saved the settlers Vincent Van Gogh cut off his ear in a fit of jealous rage Jesus was born on December 25 Lincoln was anti slavery. His own words on why he didn’t outlaw it by executive order: “I would do it if I were not afraid that half the officers would fling down their arms and three more states would rise." Captain Cook Discovered Australia Edison invented the lightbulb. The electric arc light was invented by Sir Humphry Davy. Edison’s company just perfected the filament. There were 13 original US colonies - Only 12 colonies rebelled in 1775. Delaware existed as part of the Pennsylvania colony until winning its own independence on June 15th, 1776. Columbus Discovered the Earth is Round - A guy named Eratosthenes figured out that whole spherical earth deal back in 240BC! he also invented the leap day Thanksgiving. - the concept of the the European pilgrims and the new England Indians sharing a meal in harmony was totally made up about 120 years ago. Einstein Was not very good at Math - In reality, Einstein was incredible gifted at math. The myth is due to one of his grade schools inverting their grade system for a few years. He was doing differential calculus by age 15…yea… genius status George Washington was America’s first President - Technically, he was fifteenth Peyton Randolph was appointed by the continental congress as the first President, and never lived long enough to see an independent United States of America. George Washington is the first president under the constitution we have today. Washington and the Cherry Tree Newton’s apple - Newton wasn’t hit by an apple. The Pyramids Were Built By Slaves - Julius Caesar Was Born By Caesarian Section - John K Kennedy Told the German People He Was a Jelly Donut- Benjamin Franklin, the Kite and the Thunderstorm Witches were burned at the stake during the Salem Witch Trials - witch suspects were actually hung instead. The Confederate Flag From History Is not the one you know today. The original confederate flag looks pretty close to the one we have today, the one you think of as the confederate flag was actually a proposed version of the virgina army flag Vikings didn’t wear horned helmets. - Apparently, an embellishment of prussian and nordic romanticism Marie Antoinette never said “Let them eat cake.” – Napoleon was not tiny - He was 5 foot 6, which was average for a man of his era Magellan circumnavigated the world. Nope. Dude only made it halfway before getting taken out in the philippines by natives.

400 LBS Of ROTTING OOBLECK: Solid or Liquid? IT'S BOTH
 
06:43
SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/POBmaBk3xGU 400 LBS of corn starch and water smells awful when it begins to ROT!!! So here’s how this all happened. The Today Show reached out to me and said they wanted to do MORE experiments… so I said OF COURSE!!!! One of the experiments we began testing before we do it live in front of all of America is the “Oobleck” or “walking on water” experiment that makes use of corn starch and water as a non-Newtonian fluid. I must say I had a TON of fun with this experiment. And since the Today show always wants to go BIG… we went BIG and got 400lbs of corn start to fill a 10 gallon pool with oobleck. The one thing I forgot is that cornstarch has sugar in it, so if you add water and then leave it out in the open air it will ROT!!! And so it did just that, and over 400lbs of oobleck started to rot in my buddies back yard. The clean up was anything but fun as the smell was so intense I could taste it! I would describe it as sour socks meets four week old cottage cheese left out in the sun. I almost puked. Either way this experiment is super fun and can be done on a smaller scale. Below is how to make oobleck and it’s very not dangerous so this one is kid friendly… enjoy!!! Ohh and make sure to clean it up… because it will rot ; ) Oobleck is a non-Newtonian fluid; it has properties of both liquids and solids. You can dip your hand into it like a liquid, but if you quickly squeeze the oobleck or step on it, it will feel solid. The name oobleck actualy comes from the Dr. Seuss book, “Bartholomew and the Oobleck.” In the story oobleck is a gooey green substance that fell from the sky and wreaked havoc in the kingdom. Making oobleck is easy. Here's a recipe: Oobleck ingredients • 1 part water • 1.5 to 2 parts cornstarch • Small amount of food coloring (optional) Follow Nickipedia Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/nickuhas Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/nickuhas Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/uhasbrand Nickipedia WebSite: http://www.nickipedia.com Production Team: Writer/Producer: Nick Uhas Editor: Griffin Louis DP: Sam Mosco Sources: http://www.livescience.com/21536-oobleck-recipe.html https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-Newtonian_fluid

Maybe even in your pocket. Heck, maybe it IS your pocket. The space program in many ways is “the people’s science lab”, and so here’s the rundown on some NASA goodies that have trickled down to us regular peeps over the years: 1. Better tires for your car 2. Pavement grooves 3. The smoke detector 4. Fireproof paint 5. Invisible Braces 6. Infrared thermometers 7. Memory foam 8. Artificial Limbs 9. Solar Panels 10. Enriched Baby Formula 11. Video Enhancing and Analysis Systems 12. The Dustbuster 13. Ventricular Assist Device 14. Land Mine Removal 15. Improved Mine Safety 16. Chemical Detection 17. Freeze Dried Food - In planning for the long-duration Apollo missions, NASA conducted extensive research into space food. Freeze drying is when foods are cooked, flash frozen, and then slowly heated in a vacuum chamber to remove the ice crystals formed by the freezing process. The final product retains 98 percent of its nutrition and weighs only 20 percent of its original weight. That means some pretty tasty food options for backpacking and for situations where all you have is boiling water. Astronaut ice cream anyone? 18. Food safety 19. Performance shoe insoles 20. Pollution Remediation - Petroleum Remediation Product or “PRP,” has revolutionized the way oil spills are cleaned. NASA tech, duh. 21. Water purification 22. LED lighting - High-intensity LED (Light-emitting Diodes) units were developed for the NASA space shuttles. They’re ultrabright and use tiny amounts of power. And now they’re in everything from lightbulbs to cellphones. 23. Eye Screening 24. Scratch resistant coatings 25. The Internet of Things 26. Mylar - You encounter mylar all the time. Big silvery balloons, toaster pastries, blankets for marathon runners. Mylar is a special polyester film that has been metalized, making it ultra thin, ultra strong, and because it reflects radiation and heat, it’s just perfect for space travel. Mylar was designed for NASA’s Project Echo, a balloon satellite experiment that preceded the Mercury program. 27.

Why Is ICE Slippery?
 
03:16
SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/sd3MeswzWU0 Why is ICE or snow for that matter SLIPPERY? In the science world there are two common explanations. The first one says that the melting point of ice rises when you apply pressure or squeeze it. This would explain why ice skates work. The pressure of the persons body exerting on the ice below the confined to just the blade of the ice skate creates pressure… This pressure raises the melting point which creates a thin layer of water that becomes very slippery. So while this pressure explanation makes sense for ice skaters it doesn’t make sense for snow sports like snowboarding, skiing, or sledding. Since equipment has a much larger flat surface distributing your weight, this leads to a lower pressure. The pressure wouldn’t be enough to melt the snow more than a degree or so, clearly not enoghh to generate slippery water if the outside air were just a few degrees colder than freezing. What could elese could be at work here? One possibility is friction. It has been calculated that going down a mountain at 22 miles per hour(36 KPH), which (pretty average for snowboarding) with someone who weights 165 lbs (75 KGs) would generate watts of hear power due to friction. This is 3 times the amount of watts needed for a curling iron! However since it takes energy to melt snow the bottom of your snowboard or skis would never get this hot. But even if you were outside snowboarding when it was -22F (-30C) the friction form moving slowly on a board is enough to melt the snow providing a thin water layer to glide on. And I can vouch for the friction theory here because when we went sanboarding, both the board and sleds were hot to the touch once going down the hill, and since out sensory neurons in our hands won’t let us hold something over 140F (60C) I’d say we were in the range of 130-150 degrees generated from friction alone!

SAND-BOARDING Malibu California
 
02:02
SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/2a0sE-WZPkI Where do you go snowboarding in the middle of the summer in Los Angeles? With perfect 70 degree weather all year round it makes the task quite difficult… Instead you strap on your boots and bindings, hike up a serious sand mountain and go SAND BOARDING!!! I saw this giant sand mountain on one of my hike close to point Mugu and thought to myself “I bet this is steep enough to go down on a snowboard” I woke up at 5:30AM drove up to Malibu and tested my scientific theory even before the surfers were out on the ocean. Sure enough IT WORKS! In fact I got going about as fast as you do on a snowboard (about 20 MPH). The second I went back we filmed the whole day, and even got a little creative making a home made drone out of Styrofoam glider…Because what else would you do sandboarding in Malibu? I actually bet the whole crew that if the glider made it to the ocean I would buy everyone dinner! I ended up buying them dinner anyways. The one drawback to sand boarding is that 1) there are no lifts taking you back to the top 2) sand is not snow and creates a TON of friction. This friction significantly slows you down which got me thinking…WHY IS SNOW SO SLIPPERY? Both sand and snow are solids, so why is snow so much slipperier? We then made a second video explaining just this!

How To Get Six Pack Abs ASAP
 
04:59
SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/hza2rY7uvK8 GO TO KYMS CHANNEL: https://www.youtube.com/c/kymnonstop Nothing shows your super fit than having a rock solid six-pack. So how does one achieve this fitness feat? While many people think getting a six pack means starting with sit ups… this couldn’t be more incorrect and inefficient. According to research done at the University of Virginia you would have to do 250,000 crunches to burn a pound of body fat… so if you had great Thanksgiving, Christmas and new years you might need to hover around the 1,000,000 mark to see some abdominal action. So what’s the right way to get abs of steel? Start by working every. Single. muscle…no pain no gain here fellas. Truthfully everyone already has a six-pack, it’s just under a bunch of adipose tissue … science word for fat. So to make your wash board visible you’re gonna need to burn some calories and one of the best ways to do that is to work your entire body. And one of the best ways to do this is resistance training like weight lifting. This type of exercise causes a lot of damage to the muscle fibers, which is actually a good thing because when the muscle repairs themselves, it requires a lot energy, and that energy translates into a calorie burn over a longer period of time… the result, fat loss. And the more muscle fiber that gets worked the better the result. Research at Syracuse University found that people burned more calories the day after a lower body resistance session than the day after an upper body session. The reason… your lower body has more muscle… so you should make your legs a priority during training to get the best results quickly. Another fast track tip; start your work out with a core exercise. Unfortunately crunches and classic abs exercise (any movement that rounds your spine) are actually pretty poor at exercising your core. One of the best core exercises is the plank…others include side planking, mounting climbers and even the traditional push up. Doing these core exercises is actually better to do at the beginning of your workout when your muscles are fresh and not fatigued. Its been well tracked that a weak core limits guys and girls from lifting more weight, hence burning more calories. If you only have 30-45 minutes a day to work on getting that sexy six pack we recommend scraping the tread mill and focusing on resistance training. A study out of the University of Southern Maine found that a single set of weight training exercises burns as many calories as running a 6 minute mile pace for the same amount of time. Simply put, lifting weights has a much larger impact on boosting metabolism than long-distance running…if you’re crunched on time… pick up the weights.

27 Unusual Hair Facts
 
07:27
SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/cFfJJNtN6dI Do you ever think about your hair? Sure, you spend hours of your life primping, sculpting, blow drying, and styling your ‘doo, but ever wonder what’s going on? 1. All hair is dead. No amount of fruit, fructis, herbal essence, or other food product will change this fact. 2. Men and women have hair that is identical in structure, making gender one of the few things that cannot be identified by your hair. 3. Next to bone marrow, hair is the fastest growing tissue in the body. 4. There is a psychiatric disorder called “trichotillomania” that is characterized by the repetitive pulling of an individual's own hair. 5. And if you want an idea of strength, did you know that if you compared a copper wire and a strand of hair with equivalent diameters, the strand of hair is stronger? 6. Anticipating sex makes hair grow faster. Ok, so this must be some cosmic joke. I just waxed... 7. In the 1950’s, approximately 7% of women dyed their hair, compared to nowadays when in 2015 upwards of 75% of women colored their hair. 8. And enough about where it is, let’s talk about where it ain’t. Your mucous membranes, your lips, the palms of your hands and the soles of your feet are the only areas on the human body that is unable to grow hair. 9. The human body forms all of its hair follicles by the time that a fetus is five months old and still in the womb. 10. Wet hair can expand up to 30% of its length when its wet, demonstrating how elastic hair is even if it doesn’t feel that way! Wet hair can also expand your coolness by up to 30% if you can pull it off. 11. By the time an average woman reaches the age of 65, she will have spent upwards of 7 months of her life washing,drying, and styling her hair. 12. Conversely, a man will spend approximately 5 months of his life shaving his face. More if he’s wooly willy. 13. Trichoptilosis is the scientific name for that pesky thing known as a split end. 14. The natural color of one’s hair is linked to the density of one’s hair, with blondes having the highest number of strands and redheads having the fewest number of strands of hair on their heads. BTW, more on this in my Nickipedia episode on redheads. 15. Back in time…while some might think that Brazilians were the founders of waxing (wink wink), in actuality, ancient Egyptians were the first to experiment with the removal of unwanted body hair. 16. During the Victorian Era the silky locks of the deceased were used to make lockets and jewelry. Creepy, creepy jewelry. 17. In Venice, during the Renaissance Era, women used to use horse urine in an attempt to color their hair blonde. I guess for me, the big question is how the urine was administered. 18. While everyone associates Ireland with redheads, in actuality, the United States has the most redheads (in terms of quantity) living in a country, and Scotland has the most redheads (highest proportion) in a country. 19. Hypertrichosis is the scientific name for excessive hair growth on a human body part. It’s also the sworn enemy of Larry, the name I gave my nose hair clippers. 20. A grey hair can appear in as little as 14 days due to stress or aging. And you guys, it’s ok to cry when you see one. And then immediately pluck it the eff out! It’s ok to cry. 21. Black is the most common color of hair, and red is the least common color of hair, with only 1% of people being born as gingers. 22. A strand of hair can have a lifespan of up to 5 to 7 years. One dog year. 23. Each individual hair strand consists of its own nerve, muscle, and blood supply. Think about all that waste the next time you pluck. 24. Goosebumps are a reaction we experience when we are scared or cold, caused by the contraction of each muscle for each hair strand which results in the hair rising. 25. Eyelashes are meant to keep oils and particles out of the eye, and have an average lifespan of around 150 days. 26.The average american woman spends upwards of $800 annually on hair products, not including additional hair services such as coloring, cutting, and styling. 27. Humans lose an average of 25-150 strands of hair a day, but don’t worry, because we have to lose over 50% of our hair in order for baldness to become apparent.

Why Do We Stare At Fire?

SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/mrVGt9zVse0 I grew up in Ohio where there are a lot of bonfires and campfires, and I've always noticed that at some point everyone camping is starting at the fire in a deep trance. So what makes up STARE at fire so hard? In this episode of Nickipedia we talk about how research in the fields of cognitive evolution, which is the combination of psychology, anthropology, and neuroscience, says that fire is actually responsible for changing our brains into what they are today! The concept is rooted in how early humans reacted to fire leading to the evolution of long-term memory and problem solving skills. There are also links to fire and its ability to allow us to think about many things at once, like a meditation state.With mediation allowing problem solving, and advanced planning to avoid dangers fire actually sculpted the human mind into what it is today… So the next time you go look at a fire and go into a stare, remember it’s not some object your brain has randomly selected to gawk at but rather a result of fire itself engineering your brain to stare into a meditation state like a brainwashed zombie!

Potassium and Water Explosion

The issue was that I really wanted an explosion, like a real legit explosion. After seeing how the potassium reacted with a tub of water I realized that the potassium would continue to float unless it was heavy enough to sink or sink because it was trapped in a weighted bag. Since we only had about 5 grams left (not enough to sink in the water due to the hydrogen gas immediately being formed) I went with the bag option. I was NOT disappointed! The reaction happened so quickly and was so loud I pulled my hip like a 85 year old man. Good to know I’m still got my moves and that this reaction worked so well.

Fire Bubbles Experiment: Almost Burned My Face Off

This experiment is super fun and really amazing. By trapping methane in soapy bubbles you can light the bubbles and burn the methane in one large blaze of fire all the while in your own hand! However, you have to dip your hand in water before scooping the methane bubbles (this part is crucial and cannot be skipped over).The reason water shields the flame of the methane so well is because of water’s chemical properties. Water has a very high specific heat capacity. This means that is takes A LOT of energy to heat up water, which is also why we use water to put out house and forest fires. With just a thin layer of water on my hand I can protect my skin from burning with the methane going up in flames! Fire Bubbles Experiment List -1 x methane (99% pure) cylinder close to 40-100L (doesn’t need to be too big) -1 x regulator with fill valve for methane -1 x clear tubing 4 ft to transfer gas from cylinder to ballon -1 x aluminum (metal) inflatable balloon -1 x large mouth glass jar -1 x large open plastic container (to put water) -1 x palm olive clear dish soap -1 x 1gallon water bottles Follow Nickipedia Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/nickuhas Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/nickuhas Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/uhasbrand WebSite: http://www.nickipedia.com Production Team: Writer/Producer: Nick Uhas Editor: Griffin Louis DP: Sam Mosco Sources: https://www.boundless.com/biology/textbooks/boundless-biology-textbook/the-chemical-foundation-of-life-2/water-51/water-s-high-heat-capacity-283-11416/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Methane

Why Do We Dream?
 
05:19
SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/1IAW7Z_6YyI Theory 1. Absolutely nothing. Nada. Zippo. Dreams are just the brain reacting to biochemical changes and electrical impulses that take place while asleep, the mental equivalent to random channel surfing, with no real relationship to conscious life. Yeah, right. If that’s true, it means the six eyed washing machine that ate my mother’s pet turtle before asking directions to this meeting I was running late for two days from now is not something I should be worried about. Jeez, my dreams are weird. Theory 2. Dream is apart of the Memory Consolidation process. Memory consolidation is how we learn. Literally, it’s the process of moving those state capital names you crammed so hard for in elementary school from short-term working memory to long-term memory storage…and you can’t do that while you’re awake But why do we need to consolidate our memories? Think of it this way. Imagine your brain is a laptop and that a memory is a photo collection from a recent awkward family vacation Ten of them are still loaded on an SD card, another five are on this USB stick, and the rest are in the cloud. Sure, we’ve got access to them, but wouldn’t it be faster and more reliable just to copy them all to one place, like the laptop hard drive? The answer is Yes and that’s memory consolidation. In the brain, new memories are stored in both the neocortex and the hippocampus, vastly different structures and mechanisms. One regulates (hippocampus), while the other one computes (neocortex). Then they are merged into long term pathways that are more efficient for the brain to get to. It’s this multi-source memory structure that explains why our recall of events is so, well, so fuzzy. Have you ever been able to remember certain details about a person but not their name? You can perfectly see their face but for the life of you, you can’t remember their first name. One memory mechanism can stay engaged while the other checks out the buffet table. When your memory systems work together, you remember things clearly. But if one system is distracted, you may miss a detail. This multi-point approach to memory is actually a good thing. Because if one pathway doesn’t work, the brain rewires in favor of the others. The final theory on dreaming we’ll take a look at is related not to the brain. But to the MIND. Have you ever had dream that felt so real…good, because this next part will be easier to understand This idea that dreams are your mind talking to itself. Think about that. Your mind. AKA YOU. Talking to YOU. Theory 3. Memory analysis. One of the theories about dreams is that to get anything useful out of memory, your brain needs to process what it just saw. But it can’t do that until you’re asleep. Like the brain is so busy trying to keep you alive and away from hunger, drought, insects, shredder, and Godzilla, it has to wait for you to be asleep and then basically binge watch your memories to extract the experience from the raw data. Most importantly, it has to strip out the emotional bits but keep the record of the event intact. Otherwise, whenever you recalled that time you got so scared you peed your pants... you’d ACTUALLY pee your pants AGAIN because recalling the memory of the event would also recall the emotional state information as well. Kind of an interesting safety check, huh? Analyzing our past in a non- passionate way is the only way we can truly learn and improve ourselves. Oh Man my brain just blew my mind!

What is super interesting in this episode is that we found that Cheerios BURN!!! We had heard about this phenomenon from the special effect guys and it sure is true!!! The carbohydrate cheerios in powder form is very flammable because of its carbon body. Things with carbon burn very well if there is enough oxygen like coal, wood, charcoal. This was also very apparent in our “Why Doritos Are Flammable” video. Watch the huge flame on the back side of the box when the gunpowder ignites! The best part of having a science channel is having the ability to BLOW STUFF UP!!!! This series is entirely dedicated to the fun of BLOWING THINGS UP!!! If you’re having a rough day, or are just interested in seeing what happens when normal household items get stuffed with gun powder, this is the series for you! With the help of professional stunt men we go out to the desert and blow a new item up each week. It’s literally STUFF VS. GUNPOWDER… sometimes the stuff wins, other times not : ) Which always makes us ask the question “WILL IT BLOW”?

Zodiac Sign & Astrology: Real or BS?
 
14:44
SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/-ceQnsFIIjE Before we dive in, what exactly is astrology? First off, it shouldn’t be confused with astronomy; the scientific study of space, including all the objects in space like black holes, Mars, Saturn, dwarf stars, stars like Ryan Reynolds, and Matt Damon who seems to be stuck in space a lot. Astrology on the other hand is the study of the movements and relative positions of all the things in space called celestial bodies (like the sun, moon, stars and planets) and how this affects human affairs and the natural world also known as your fortune. 1) I will admit I love checking my horoscope. I mean, I feel like what they say is always like so me n stuff! but, with everyone else too. This is quite a generic and super general statement. Almost anyone with a pulse could look at this fortune and apply it to themselves. This is because Astrology takes advantage of the Forer Effect, thinking super vague general predictions apply specifically to you! Psychologist Bertman R Forer conducted a test by giving a group of students a personality questionnaire; totally ignoring the student’s answers to the questions he gave each student the same generic evaluation. He then asked each student to rank the evaluation on a scale of 0-5 on how accurate it was, 5 as excellent, 0 as horrible. The class average was a 4.26! and this was done in 1948!! The exact test has been repeated hundreds of times with the result averaging around 4.2 or 84% accurate. The best part is that Forer actually used an astrology description for his test! What this tells us is that people do a great job, solid B range actually, of making sense out of experience that has very lose to no connectivity. Humans love to connect the dots and make our outside world make sense, even if were making sense out of non-sense. And what really drives this behavior home is that people tend to accept questionable, even false statements about ourselves if we deem them positive or flattering enough! 2) Astrology also falls victim to confirmation bias. Which is type of selective thinking whereby one tends to notice and look for what confirms their beliefs, while ignoring what contradicts them. This is also done totally independently regardless of the truthfulness or falsity of the information. So if your horoscope says you’re going to make great relationships this week, you’ll most likely be open to making new relationships, thus confirming your belief that this is your fate for the next seven days!. Scientist Peter Wason tested this back in the 1960’s by asking subjects to guess the patterns of series of numbers. He found that most people tried to prove their hypothesis rather than falsify it. This was found to be the case, because as much as possible, people didn’t want break their own rules. 3) Astrology takes your birth month and makes predictions about your life sorta kinda based on the stars, moon, sun, and other planet. Some astrology sites claim the mechanism at work is caused by variations of UV light. However, there is little correlation to month and UV intensity as UV ray levels vary due to solar flares, changes in our ozone, and altitudes independently of the month. Also, how would sunscreen factor into this equation? Like if your parents put sunscreen on during pregnancy or you as new born this would completely destroy the mechanism and predictive power at work here. http://elitedaily.com/life/when-you-are-born-does-impact-your-life/837453/ http://skepdic.com/forer.html http://www.universetoday.com/61202/earths-orbit-around-the-sun/# https://www.timeanddate.com/astronomy/perihelion-aphelion-solstice.html http://www.astrologer.com/tests/basisofastrology.htm http://www.astrology.com/horoscope/daily/aries.htmlhttps://explorable.com/confirmation-bias http://www.astrology-zodiac-signs.com/zodiac-signs/aquarius/ http://www.enchantedlearning.com/time/leapyear/ http://sciencequestionswithsurprisinganswers.org/2013/03/23/how-does-astrology-work/ http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0191886905004046 http://all.true-news.info/nasa-almost-90-of-people-have-changed-zodiac-sign/ http://www.sugarscape.com/celebs/news/a1085847/nasa-change-zodiac-star-signs-dates/ http://www.iflscience.com/brain/does-season-birth-affect-personality/ http://thescienceexplorer.com/brain-and-body/explainer-there-any-science-behind-astrology http://aa.usno.navy.mil/data/docs/EarthSeasons.php https://source.wustl.edu/2008/02/earth-orbit-creates-more-than-a-leap-year/ http://spaceplace.nasa.gov/starfinder2/en/

Exploding Hydrogen Balloons Experiment
 
05:29
SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/1HAYBDXL5WY This experiment is not easy. One of the biggest challenges is getting the right amount of aluminum foil and lye. When we first did it I kept putting too much lye water and too much aluminum foil in our glass bottle. This resulted in the bottle heating up so much I couldn’t even grab it to put the balloon over the mouth. The other thing we figured out is that you really need a long neck bottle, the longer the better. The first attempt used a small pyrex Erlenmeyer flask and it was WAAAYYY too hot to touch or put a balloon over the mouth. We ended up using a Tea Java bottle we got at Ralphs. This had a long enough neck and a small enough mouth to put the balloon over to not roast my finger. One we finally got the hydrogen in the balloon I had no idea how big or loud of an explosion it would make. I will say this, be prepared! It is LOUD and Hydrogen is certainly flammable… stay back when lighting up the balloon! The sound is equivocal to an m60 firework but more bass-y. I also got my lye from a chemical dealer in LA however you can buy it small sizes at plumbing or hardware stores. Chemical formula 2 Al(s) + 6 H2O(l) + 2 NaOH(aq) → 2 NaAl(OH)4(aq) + 3 H2(g) Aluminum + Water + Sodium Hydroxide = Sodium Aluminate and Hydrogen Gas Follow Nickipedia Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/nickuhas Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/nickuhas Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/uhasbrand Production Team: Producer: Nick Uhas Editor/Cam 2: Griffin Louis DP: Sam Mosco Sources: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodium_aluminate http://www.hometutoring.co.nz/chemistry/experiment15.php http://sites.jmu.edu/chemdemo/2011/06/08/aluminium-foil-and-naoh/

Gymnastics has been around in one form or another for over 2,000 years.The word gymon, actually comes from Ancient Greek and means “exercise naked”. 2. The Ancient Greeks used gymnastics and other olympic events as part of their training for war. Wrestling, boxing, along with running, climbing, jumping, discus and javelin were all skills that could be translated to combat. 3. Gymnastics was actually banned back in 393 AD by Roman Emperor Theodosius, who thought it caused corruption. 4. Dr. Dudley Allen Sargent is credited for teaching gymnastics during the American Civil War. 6. In 1954, Olympic gymnastics standardized the apparatus and events for men and women. They also officially adopted the 1 to 10 point system. 7. Olympic gymnastics competition for women was introduced at the 1928 games, but the only event was synchronized calisthenics. 8. Rhythmic gymnastics was added to the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles. 9. French acrobat and gymnastics instructor Jules Leotard liked the one-piece exercise garment so much that they named it after him. 10. Male gymnasts do not use music during their routines. 12. Romanian gymnast Nadia Comenici received the first perfect 10 ever awarded in 1976. 13. Female gymnasts cannot compete in the Olympics until they are at least 16. Dominique Moceanu, at 14, is the youngest female athlete ever to win a gold medal at the Olympics 14. North Korea was banned from the 1991 Olympics after they falsified documents related to their star gymnast Kim Gwang-Suk’s age 15. Kelly Garrison, a female gymnast from the United States, has three different moves named after her. 16. The scoring system was revised in 2006 to keep gymnasts from getting perfect scores. 17. George Eyser of USA won 6 medals in the 1904 Olympics and is considered as the most remarkable gymnast in the history as he had won them with a wooden leg. 18. Kerri Strug in 1996, she made history when she stuck the vault landing on an injured foot and had to be famously carried off the mat by her coach. 19. The vaulting horse was initially set 2 inches too low in the 2000 Olympics. 20. USSR’s Larissa Latynina is the most successful women gymnast in the history of the Olympics as she won 18 medals between 1956 and 1964. 21. Shannon Miller is considered the most decorated women’s gymnast, with 59 International and 49 National competition medals. 22. Nastia Liukin is tied with Shannon Miller for the third-highest tally of World Championship medals On August 15, Liukin performed clean routines on all four events (sticking her landings on three out of four events) to win the all-around gold medal with a final score of 63.325. It was the third time that an American woman had won the Olympic all-around title; Mary Lou Retton and Carly Patterson were the two previous American gold medalists. 23. After her retirement, Nastia Liukin founded her own gymnastics competition? The Nastia Liukin Cup began in 2010 and is considered the showcase pre-elite gymnasts who have yet to make it big. 24. Shawn Johnson, took the silver medal at the same competition, making it the fourth time in the history of the Games that two athletes from the same country had taken first and second place in the women's all-around. 25. Shawn Johnson, in addition to being an olympic champion, is another kind of champion as well, being crowned the winner of Dancing with the Stars, season 8.

Can Bad Smells HARM YOU?
 
03:46
SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/WlbV6UrEr2k Smell Protection Guide: http://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/odors/faqs.html This question comes from Mikayla Stott, she asks “if it's harmful for your body to inhale bad smells. For example, is it bad to inhale septic tank odor or does it just smell horrid? Or just any really bad smells” I love this question for many reasons, but mostly because I’ve wanted to know the same thing for a long time, because it seems very logical that a horrible smell, coming from something that WOULD make you sick… could also make you sick… or KILL YOU!!! Science would like to disagree… to a degree. From sciencefocus.com Luis Villazon states a smell cannot harm you as a smell is nothing more than a neural response to airborne molecules binding to mucous membranes of your nose. So when you’re smelling poop, little tiny poop particles are landing inside of your nose, and letting you know there is well, poop near by… yea its pretty disgusting. Luis says a smell cannot hurt you anymore than a color can harm you. I duno man, the color green…sneaky sneaky ….out to getcha. However sensing bad smells actually has a purpose. As an evolutionary trait detecting wretched odors let us know to avoid the thing giving off the horrible smell because those objects probably can harm us. You wouldn’t want to take a bite of dead raccoon or a mouthful of sewage. An article from Popsci.com also talks about this smelly topic. The article describes and instance where an airplane had to emergency land because someone took such a foul smelling crap! However, when it comes specifically to poop the odor particles that would land in your nose are not the same as air born pathogens flying through the atmosphere as bacteria and viruses. In fact, a tremendous amount of force needs be applied for pathogens to be transmitted through the air… the conclusion, poop, sewage, and septic tanks have nauseous odors but there is a very low chance it will actually make you ill. Now on the flip side some environmental odors are considered toxic, and if the concentration and exposure time is high enough inhaling these toxic fumes could actually kill you. So if it smells bad, I would play on the side of caution, listen to your brain and body and to avoid it! Now since its kind of confusing to tell which smells are actually toxic and which ones aren’t, I’m providing a link in the description below to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry…This will give you all the specific info on what to avoid.

Is Your Microwave DANGEROUS?
 
06:14
SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/f9cEGdeDBM8 Could your microwave oven actually kill you? In this episode of Nickipedia, we’re gonna set the record straight on radiation and your microwave. Radiation. It’s everywhere. Like “The Force” for real. Radiation gets dissed pretty hard, but it’s actually pretty useful. After all we do like heat, light, and communication of which are all rooted in radiation. And Yes, it’s also responsible for sunburns, mutations, and yes, sometimes Godzilla. But the Godzilla is pretty dope.. am I right, am I right? Simply put, we encounter radiation all the time as radiation is just energy traveling through space. It could come n the form of a wave, a particle, or even an asteroid with radioactive elements. Radiation comes to us in a bunch of different ways. The big granddaddy of all radiation emitters is of course, the sun. As the hydrogen in the sun undergoes nuclear fusion, energy is released across the entire electromagnetic spectrum…the same spectrum that lets you see all the colors of the double rainbow. In a way our Sun is like a giant battery, spitting out incredible amounts of radiation 24/7, for 4.6 Billion years and counting, son! But radiation hurling through space is boring. It just keeps going. It really doesn’t become interesting until it hits something… like our face. At one end of the spectrum (literally) you have extremely long wavelengths like radio and microwaves. We can’t see them, but they’re there. As radiation wavelength’s gets shorter, we still can’t see the energy, but we can feel it as heat. For example, thermal heat is in the infrared spectrum. Next comes the visible light, the part we can actually see as colors. As the wavelength becomes even shorter, you get ultraviolet, and then gamma and x-rays. So if all of this is considered radiation, what’s the deal with safe vs unsafe radiation? Well, even more basic, what is the definition of safe? Here’s little biology to shed some visible light spectrum on the issue Biological organisms, and that includes us Eathlings, need DNA to function. Duh, DNA is the molecular playbook, the structural screenplay, the genetic google map that tells your cells where and how to grow and what to do. As molecules go, DNA is pretty tough. It can take a beating and keep on going...like Jedi. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be damaged…also like a Jedi. When DNA is damaged, your genetic roadmap begins missing pages and the blueprint becomes faulty. And while your body has mechanisms to correct these gaps and errors, sometimes it’s just not enough. DNA can be damaged by exposure to carcinogenic chemicals or exposure to high energy radiation passing through the body, shredding molecular bonds as it interacts. It’s all about power, really. When Ultraviolet light hits your skin, it won’t cook you physically. But it has enough high energy behind it to cause DNA damage causing sunburns and skin cancer. So wear sunscreen! Sunscreens protect against the damage by absorbing the high energy of ultraviolet with chemicals that break down into two other chemicals. But you came here to figure out if your microwave oven was plotting something sinister with your cell phone. Microwaves ovens work on a principle known as dielectric heating. “Di” as in two. As in Positive and Negative. Water is a dipole molecule, which has a negative side and a positive side. These dipoles are like tiny little magnets, meaning that they can be influenced by electromagnetic radiation, specifically radiation in the microwave range. Not able to penetrate very far below the surface, and so very dangerous like X-rays. The microwaves cause the water molecules to wobble back and forth or vibrate, and it is this vibration that translates into heat as friction. When you got some leftover Pad Thai to eat. The microwave utilizes high power electromagnetic fields, contained inside a shielded metal cooking chamber. Those little holes in your microwave glass door are actually a wave guide tuned to trap the radiation but let visible light pass through. That way, you can see your dinner as it cooks, not the other way around. So in summary, your microwave can’t kill you with radiation.

Liquid Nitrogen SUPER CLOUD
 
06:46
SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/fluNnWgo2N8 NBC’s Today Show said they wanted me to come back on to do science experiments. So I gladly accepted! They also said they wanted to go BIG! I gladly accepted again. In this experiment I take boiling hot water (about 3 gallons) and forcefully throw the water into 10 Liters of liquid nitrogen in an industrial sized trashcan. The water reacts with the liquid nitrogen in a violent reaction that vaporizes the water.

The Olympic Summer Games… but it took 4 years to pull it together 2) At the first Olympic Summer Games in 1896 Greece won the most medals at 47 3) The Winter Games were the add on… The first winter games were held in France in 1924 .. wi wi 4) The country to win the most medals for the winter games is Norway at 329 medals of which 118 of them are gold 5) For the Summer Games, the country to win the most metals is the United States with 2,400… merica 6) the five Olympic rings represents the five major regions of the world (Africa, Americas, Asia, Europe and Oceana) 7) The colors of the Olympic rings have a reason…every national flag in the world in includes one of the five colors which are blue, yellow, black, green, and red 8) The Olympics were held every four years up until 1994 when the winter and summer games have alternated every two years… I’m assuming this has to do with making more money… but hey I’m all for it! 9) The very first Olympics every covered bu US television was the 1960 summer games in Rome… that’s not very long ago considering there were 136 years where this didn’t happen…all about that telegraph life 10) No Country in the southern hemisphere has ever hosted a winter games… come on Australia get it together bro! and I looked it up, it does snow there 11) the 1896 Olympics games had only 14 events, today there are 300 12) the tradition of giving gold, silver and bronze medals started in 1904 13) A total of 14,713 medals have been awarded in the history of the summer Olympics 14) During the first Olympics in Greece the winner was awarded two items a silver coin and an olive weather, second place got a copper coin and a laurel branch 15) things got a little stingy at the 1900 Olympic games where winners were awarded trophies instead of medals.. some trends don’t last 16) the summer games of 1904 were held in St. Louis Missouri and had the US scoop 239 of the available 280 medals 17) At every Olympic games it is expected that the US, Great Britain and Russia will compete for the largest haul of medals 18) Kenya is known for winning middle and long distance track races, in the 2012 London Olympic games, Kenya won 11 medals in only 6 events… all of them track races 19) figure skating was initially apart of the summer Olympics. Before the winter games men’s, women’s and pairs figure skating events were par of the 1908 and 1920 summer Olympics. 20) Olympic champions last received solid gold medals in 1912 21) Olympic runner up medals aren’t much different than the winning medals. Gold medals are made with 93 silver, 6 percent copper and only 6 grams of gold 22) the 2012 summer games were 17 days long, the summer games staged in London in 1908 spanned 188 days! More than half a year …imagine the marketing budgets for major companies! 23) the first Olympian to fail a drug test was busted for drinking beer. In 1968 the Swedish Olympian Hans Gunnar Liljenwall tested positive for a banned substance… two beers, he said he downed them to calm his nerves before this pistol shoot Sources: http://www.radioaustralia.net.au/international/2013-09-12/7-things-you-may-not-know-about-snow-in-australia/1189275 http://www.worldatlas.com/articles/countries-with-the-most-olympic-medals.html http://www.history.com/news/10-things-you-didnt-know-about-the-summer-olympics http://www.sciencekids.co.nz/sciencefacts/sports/summerolympics.html http://www.as-coa.org/articles/weekly-chart-how-much-will-rios-2016-summer-olympics-cost http://www.sportsinside.org/16-facts-about-the-olympic-games-2016-in-rio-de-janeiro/ http://www.nbcnews.com/news/sports/rio-2016-16-fun-facts-about-year-s-olympics-n510311 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norway_at_the_Olympics https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2016_Summer_Olympics http://www.history.com/news/10-things-you-didnt-know-about-the-summer-olympics Pictures: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ancient_Olympic_Games#/media/File:Olympos.jpg

Myth Busting With Infrared: Ft. Physics Girl
 
12:07
SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA PHYSICS GIRL: https://www.youtube.com/user/physicswoman SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/L95Lilzf6yQ Did you ever leave the front door open in the summer as a kid? Did you dad ever tell you that “we not air conditioning that whole neighbor” ? And he probably said all super-dad-like, throwing his hand in the air slightly and then lost focus to talk to your mom about why Christmas at your grandparents house this year just isn’t a good idea! Well, if that ever happened to you, today were gonna set the record straight and do a little experiment to see exactly how fast all that AC was just rushing out the front of the house. Were also going to test how fast cold air leaves your car and your fridge. Because you don’t want to refrigerate the whole living room now do ya!? But how would we do something like that? We would need a special camera, like one that sees in temperature. And that’s exactly what we have with us today. We have the FLIR camera that sees in thermal infrared. So before we get started on this experiment let’s talk really quickly about what infrared is and how these camera work. Infrared is a type of radiation that is between the visible and microwaves portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. This means that infrared wavelengths are longer than visible light but shorter than microwaves. One of the things infrared is used for is to measure the heat radiated by different object. All objects, even ones that you would think of as cold, like an ice cubes produce infrared radiation. This is the type of radiation that is given off by the motion of atoms and molecules in an object, and all objects have atoms that are moving inside of them unless they are at absolute zero. This is a state of no atoms moving which occurs at -459.67F. Any object that has motion of atoms will have a temperature above absolute zero and therefore, will be emitting infrared radiation. Some objects are super hot and we can see they are hot like the lava that took out Anakin Skywalker. Other objects are very hot, like the oven top your parents told you not to touch, but you went ahead and touched anyways and got a super big blister. These types of objects are hot, but are not hot enough to emit visible light. This is where an infrared detecting device can come in handy, and that’s exactly what infrared cameras do! Infrared cameras work by detecting all of that infrared energy being emitted by objects and converting it into an electronic signal. This signal is then processed to make a thermal image which looks exactly like the image that the predator uses to track down Arnold in the Jungle… and then again to take out aliens… but seriously how disappointing was Predator Vs Alien, I mean it turned into a love story for god sakes!

TOP 27 OBSCURE Slang Words
 
07:23
SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/ohVkLvK2s-s All the Nickipediacs are the bees knees. Language, especially English, is constantly evolving. Each new generation brings their own slang and idioms. Some stick around, like “cool”. Some don’t, like saying “Jake” .. this was at some point the word “cool” I personally like neato,…which is totally not jake. Anyway, for this installment of 27 facts, we go down the list of the super weird and obscure slang terms: 1. “Jack-a-nape” - Nope, not a new fast food restaurant. This is a shakespearian term for a mischievous child. 2. “L7 square” - Get it? L plus 7 forms the shape of a square. And if you’re a square, well, you better just get out.. get. Out. 3. “Clams” - Slang for dollars, which referenced clamshell wampum that Native Americans once used 4. “Far out” - As in unusal or eccentric. From the sixties when everyone was either on drugs or trying to be unusual and eccentric. You had to have a term that described someone who was REALLY REALLY UNUSUAL AND ECCENTRIC. And also maybe on drugs... 5. “Gams” - A woman’s legs. I dunno about this one. “Gams” sounds kida gross. Sounds like a probiotic shake or a skin disorder humans get from living swamp too long. 6. “Grody to the max” - Like ohmigod, let’s talk about Valley Girl aka Valspeek. Grody means gross. Disgusting. Now Valspeek is not what it used to be, but we still have bits of it here and there. Take number 7. 7. “Totally” - Totally used to be king, but now it’s shortened to “Totes”, natch. Because who the eff has time to say “...ally” anyway. Totes too much time, brah. 8. Sups Mega Gnar.. or just straight gnarly....surfer bro dialect for “amazing” or “very good” 9. “As if” - Fans of “Clueless” and “Wayne’s World” remember this one. “As If” seems to have evolved into “Srsly”. 10. “Sauce Box” - Slang for mouth. For when “Pie Hole” is too strong. 11. "Whooperups" were "inferior noisy singers”. 12. A "gigglemug" is Victorian slang for a habitually smiling face. Something we at Nickipedia hope you have right now. Just no gigglemugshots, please. 13. And while we’re on giggles, “Giggle water” is another word for alcohol. I just wish that’s what cops said at traffic stops. “You’ve been drinking that giggle water, boy… step out of the car!” 14. “Talk to the hand” – because the mouth ain’t working… which I lways found strange, because this was a verbal command…but whatever, thank god that era is over 15. “Zoinks” - A word that means scared, shocked, from the shaggy and scooby dictionary. 16. “Off the cob" means something or someone corny. 17. “Palooka” is a word for a loutish, clumsy man. And for some reason, it sounds like a pokemon or a boss from a mario brothers game. 18. Cheaters - Another word for reading glasses. Has nothing to do with Murray 19. Phonus balonus – ironically not a magic spell from the new Harry Potter book. It’s an old slang term for “this is nonesense” 20. “Spifflicated” is another word for being totally hammered. 21. “Dumb Dora” is and old term for an unintelligent person, especially a woman. Not to be confused with debbie downer. Whump whump. Or dora the explora, who I think is pretty smart. 22. Kale is another word for money. Along with lettuce, salad, chedda and happy cabbage… strong correlation with salad and money…hummm…illuminati lizard people salad makers, makes sense 23. “You’re all wet.” is another way of saying “Bro, you’re totally screwed.” 24. “Bimbo” - Funny thing, Bimbo used to mean tough guy, but now for some reason means dumb girl, or changed to himbo for an attractive but dumb guy. Can you imagine someone threatening you with “Better pay up, or I’ll send my bimbos after you…” 25. “To Know one’s onions” means you know what you are talking about …but I don’t even like onions… and that’s the truth! 26. A Fuddy duddy is technically an old fashioned person, but can also be extended to mean an unfun person as well. 27. And finally, “To Razz one’s berries” means you’ve excited or impressed someone.

Salt Lamps: REAL or BS?
 
06:09
SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/dySoNCzsX5Q This question came in from my Nickipedia email heynickuhas@gmail.com, Willette Lewis asked the below Do the Himalayan salt lamps help you sleep and help with the air or did I just buy some really good cooking salt? Here’s what I found. Himalayan salt lamps are very interesting, first off there are in fact no salt mines in the Himalayas, which should give you an indication on how these giant salt chunks are more marketing than science. Most of the salt rocks are coming from Poland, Pakastian and India at least 190 miles from the actual Himalayas. This particular salt is made from 98% sodium chloride (or table salt) and 2 % other minerals with one of them being Iron Oxide (fancy word rust) which gives it the really cool pink color. After researching online I found that there are a ton of claims about Himalayan salt lamps. Some of these include 1) Neutralizing electromagnetic radiation 2) Purifying the air 3) Increasing energy levels 4) Helping you sleep better 5) Reducing stress 6) Doing your taxes The majority of these claims are rooted in positive and negative ions…so I shall explain The idea is that positive ions from electromagnetic radiation, which come from things, like your cell phone, TV, thunderstorms and cosmic waves from outer space are causing your body harm. In order to stop this harm we must neutralize the positive ions with negative ions, just like how antioxidants neutralize free radicals. Salt lamps are claiming to emit negative ions one a heat source like a light bulb is applied, however there is no empirical, statistical or scientific proof this is happening…at all. Also, to truly neutralize positive ion being emitted from electromagnetic radiation we would have to wrap ourselves a thick layer lead, like chainmail armor made of lead… which would be uncomfortable and probably end up causing lead poisoning. So that’s a no-go. The negative ion emission is also why salt lamps claim to increase energy levels, help you sleep better and reduce stress, but since they don’t emit negative ions, well these claims don’t add up to much. The other claim is that the salt lamps are purifying the air, which is said to be done through hygroscopy. This is a fancy word for “absorbing moisture”. The idea is that action of absorbing water molecules with contaminants inside of them will purify the air. While salt does have hygroscopic properties so does sugar, cotton, caramel, honey, sulfuric acid, ethanol (vodka), and…regular old table salt. So would it be fair to say your cotton shirt or salt lick for deer chilling on your coffee table is providing the same benefit? Adding to this there is no scientific data or evidence that a huge chunk of rock salt is particularly good at using hygroscopic properties to filter the air. Under the same justification methodology your couch is pulling the equivalent contaminated moisture out of the air… but moisture in the air isn’t necessarily a bad thing either. This is in fact why we install humidifiers during the cold and dry months. An article from the Mayo Clinic states :Increased humidity may ease breathing in children and adults who have asthma or allergies, especially during a respiratory infection such as a cold But don’t toss your pink table salt lamp quite yet! Research published in the journal of consumer psychology states that the intensity of light is directly related to degree of a person’s emotional response. What this means is that if your salt lamp is providing a warm soft glow this type of light can reduce the intensity of high stress emotions leading to a feeling of relaxation and calm.
