I wonder how Eric Berne (transactional analysis) would describe this kind of script. 
Notice that I managed to make highbrow an Okayface meme. That's quite the feat, I think.

NurdRage has some of the most educative chemistry experiment videos on YouTube. In this one he presents various interesting chemistry topics: oxidation states, coordination chemistry, and comproportionation.
What I particularly like about the NurdRage videos:
- the experiments are well-prepared and thought out in minute detail.
- the commentary is clear and contains all the important scientific facts.
- the presentation style is extremely clear and informative, so the experiment is very easily rerproducible.
- no dumbing-down, no hand-waving, no BS.

Thanks mostly to coal-fired power plants, humans have hugely increased the concentration of mercury in the top 100m of ocean water, since the industrial revolution. 
To illustrate how alarming the trend has been, I'll just quote one paragraph from the Nature article:

"Between 5–10% of US women of childbearing age already have blood mercury levels that increase the risk of neurodevelopmental problems in their children, and an estimated 1.5 million–2 million children are born in the European Union each year with mercury exposure levels associated with IQ deficits. Wildlife and marine life is not spared either. Studies have found that mercury levels compromise the reproductive health and fertility of some fish and birds."

Pollution may soon overwhelm deep seas' ability to sequester mercury.

This is another outstanding documentary on the vaccination controversy. It gets especially exciting starting at the 22:30  mark.

Hey +Pam Adger , if you haven't seen this, I suggest you start watching from around 22:30. It contains additional info compared to the NOVA documentary.

I solved it. Good to know my brain is as good as the top 40% of Singaporean 11 year olds.  I'm not even kidding. Not entirely.

A Singaporean logic problem for teenagers has stumped the world, but is that really what's expected of local students?

+Paul Gatling  the trickiest part for me was the third step. If you're not careful you might just think Albert's second response is redundant with Bernard's. But it's not!
I'm just mentioning this because it was a bit of a mental trap I set up for myself. But finally I managed to avoid it.

Do you think you have t he right to strap an explosive device to your body and walk into a crowded place with that? Hey, it's "your body" after all.
The government should be trying to safeguard the health of the children (and if parents aren't vaccinating them that's equivalent to gross child neglect) and the health of the other members of society. 
You anti-vaxxers are the laughnig stock of humankind, and will go down in the history books as a strange yet dangerous madness. History will not be kind to you.

This excellent NOVA documentary on vaccines explains in clear terms how vaccines interact with the immune system,, why they are important, and it also explains herd immunity. It mentions also the fraudulent Wakefield paper.

Several months ago a colleague of mine notified me of the fact that my ex-department - the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Aalto University - is using one of my PhD thesis photos on it's main page. I was quite honored and surprised back then. I am even more surprised that they are still using this image. I can only conclude that alcohol-fueled micro fuel cells are considered a hot topic by the department. My PhD work got much more exposure in the popular media than I expected, and almost all of it focused on using alcohol as a fuel for the MFCs, and their use in mobile phones.
