    I'm surprised no one has commented at the pure comedy moment at 14 mins 21 seconds........ [ or is this just tooooooo geeky for some of you ? ]
    I am wondering if some of the younger members actually knows what he gets out......

    I started losing interest too...

    I'm not a million years old either though, so no, I haven't a clue what he got out...

    It does seem a much easier way to measure the speed of sound instead of banging two pans together and timing the difference in time vs sound.

    no thanks, they obviously don't help with the chilling out thing

    Perhaps I should spam the forums with inane drivel and work on it tho' ...or perhaps not

    that was really amazing, hadn't a clue what he was talking about but remained completely captivated by him. Makes me regret not paying attention in science classes.
