A nanobot taking a spermatozoide to the egg.

That sort of thing gets my mind fizzing! I assume they used rotating and directional magnetic fields to power, navigate and instruct the bot.

Not a GIF, but interesting to see what DNA looks like in a cell:

Maybe I am old fashioned and to stuffy but I am putboff by these frenetic presenters with their extreme facial expressions and wave-about hand gestures. But, if it works for the kids I will just quietly ignore it and go for the likes of  Neil deGrasse Tyson , Jim Al-Khalili or even Brian Cox. I especially miss the laid back Richard Feynman

I'm with you Dave. Too much show business does not do anything for my understanding of the subject matter.  In the case of the video I will generously write it off as unbridled enthusiasm for the subject matter, by the presenter. 

There is a You Tube video that shows a young black man who is a teacher, He has a weird hairdo.  He teaches his lessons with a rap music format.  The claim is that it works well for his elementary grade students.  He be jivein' man.  Not my cup of tea but if it works for him and his class.....then go for it.   

The kids can go home or out to the playground and rap the multiplication tables I suppose.

I agree on a personal level, but at the same time believe that anything that will perhaps plant a seed of interest in science in a young mind is useful.

Not my cup of tea. But I'm not a little kid (in age), anymore.

I did like that. A very clear demonstration of what he was talking about, which make things easier to take in.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

Y'know, just makes me think that the old idea that we are really just colonies of, once individual, single-celled organisms that shared genes and merged has some merit . . .

Those are excellent.

Remember, your inability to grasp science is not a valid argument against it.

Thanks for sharing those, they're great!
