    Okay, So i’ve been boggling my mind over entanglement for a while... At the moment i tend to lean with Einstein, it sure seems like spooky action. I have a question or two for those much more educated than myself though. Thanks ahead of time. - When looking at entanglement, there is always talk of ‘particles’ even when the experiments are done with photons... what exactly do they mean by particle? A single atom, a molecule, a subatomic particle or a photon? - Did i hear this correctly, to entangle particles they must be split from a single source? With photons that makes sense, but with any other actual atom, that does not make sense to me... you cant have a stable half of say, a single carbon atom, can you?

    the fluid in the bottle will not spin instantaniously when the bottle is spun, but will take time to get up to speed. this might have something to do with the effect described.

    If Planet 9 is discovered, I think we should keep the theme of naming the planets after Roman deities. I propose the name Minerva, after the Roman goddess of wisdom. This represents how much scientific progress has made to be able to discover it.

      @Valrath823 top "scientists" (not just politicians) claim we have 10-ish years. Even Obama claimed this. So forgive me if i don't take the word of liers. Besides, we should evolve or die. It's the way life works. Right?

      Because he's not going to be alive in ~150 years. Seriously, what does that have to do with the science of climate change? I know what you're trying to get at, and it's a bad argument. People engage in hypocritical activities all the time. For example, I can say that drinking plenty of water is good for your health, but I still drink a lot of soda. That doesn't invalidate the benefits of drinking water. Obama buying beachfront property doesn't mean that climate change isn't real. It means that he likes that property. Sea level rise is a very slow process, and some news articles do compress the time frame, which can lead to confusion. The concern for increased coastal flooding won't be a major problem for another hundred or so years. Unless Obama has an elixir of immortality, he'll be dead long before water levels become a concern. Maybe the people that inherit the property might have to deal with, but he won't. He's free to do as he pleases.

    Wrong! Evidence from the magnetic rocks in the Hawaiian island chain prove the earth has flipped multiple times in the past because the magnetic field of those rocks has switched/flipped as the islands have formed and moved. Show us evidence next time that its not going to happen, or that it wont for a very long time, OR that us humans are or aren't going to have an impact on whether or not it is or isn't going to flip. Thanks.

    Note: for the intermediate axis theorem to work, there has to be three different moment of inertias about the three rotational axis of the object @13:08 this explains why the Earth has its mass mostly on the area with low longitude.
