Bizarre Nested Klein Bottles
Astronomer and the OG 1337 hax0r Clifford Stoll now makes the theoretically impossible Klein Bottles. If you don't know what they are, read about them. They'll either make you feel really smart or really stoned. What more could you ask for in a conversation piece?
Adam also shows his video where he sneezes while forcing his eyes to stay open. Check out the Mythbusters clip to see if his eyes did, in fact, pop out of his head. Story of his life: don't try this at home! Watch Mythbusters Wednesday nights on Discovery Channel instead.
For decades, geeks were ostracized, picked on, laughed at and punished by the sun’s harmful UV rays. But there is only so long that such people can be kept down before they rise up against their oppressors; and, indeed, the dawn of the 21st century has seen the ascendancy of geeks and geek culture. Adam Savage along with Wil Wheaton & Paul and Storm celebrate this rise to power at W00tstock in San Francisco & Los Angeles! Three full hours of geeks & music; a Diggnation/Mytbusters fan's dream.
