What is Sea Level?
Thanks to MinutePhysics, you’ll never look at this oblate spheroid you live on the same way again. Earth, and the water that covers it, is subject to a score of dips, tugs and bulges thanks to the wibbly-wobbly nature of rocky-craggy-gravity… stuff.
Anyway, the question of how high above sea level you or Mt. Everest is is a lot more fascinating and complicated than you think. Elevate your understanding!
These are may favorite science stories. Finding out that the things that just ARE, those things that we take intellectually and observationally for granted, like blue skies, wind, tall trees, or seasons … the world is even more amazing when you discover how it works. I have found no exception to this rule.
Well it fascinates me anyway…
Ladies and gentleman, this is why font choice matters.

Beau Lotto: Optical illusions show how we see
One of the best TED talks I’ve seen in recent memory. Sit down and prepare to get a bit of a brain cramp as you are taken through a series of truly awesome optical illusions.
In the process, you will learn a bit about how we perceive the world. In a sense, these tricks show us how our eyes work, but more accurately it shows us how our brains make sense of all that visual information.
You begin with particular wavelengths of light, the purely physical thingness of things. You end with a perception of your surroundings, tricks and all. All the between bits are where the fun lives.
What IS an illusion???

“That could also be a statistical anomaly.”
