Yes, that should be ‘on a scale from 0 to 10’ above. Shame on you, Symmetry.

Three years ago, Dublin based physics student David Whyte started a Tumblr called Bees and Bombs where he posted gifs he’d created.
Since then he’s become adept at the open source programming language Processing which, combined with his physics and maths background, has resulted in an ongoing series of striking, minimalist loops.
An enterprising Russian logging crew uses the torque of their truck’s rear wheel to load logs.
Then you may like this project called DART of Physics, led by Professor Shane Bergin, from the School of Physics and CRANN at Trinity College Dublin.
He and his team are giving online physics lessons for DART commuters.
This cannot end well.
“Over the course of eight weeks, starting on the 21st of October 2013, we’ll turn Dublin’s DART into our own laboratory and get the city thinking and talking about physics.”
“Discover and learn scientific concepts through tricky teasers, mind-melting facts and seemingly illogical questions that will be scattered throughout the DART. All you’ll have to do is look around you on your journey.”
“And if you want to know more, that’s what this website is for. Updated throughout the campaign, we’ll be blogging, responding to your questions and releasing interactive, illustrated stories that go deeper into the the lessons on the DART.”
“We promise you, this will not be the physics you avoided in school.”

Up on the International Space Station, astronaut Don Pettit demonstrates the weird behaviour of antibubbles (droplets of liquid surrounded by a thin film of gas – the opposite of ordinary gas bubbles).
