Just think of all the questions that arise when a seemingly-healthy baby dies. Was there an illness that went undetected? Was there a rare genetic defect that couldn’t possibly have been known? Are any signs of physical trauma related to the resuscitation efforts of a fragile infant, or something more sinister? Every time a baby […]

Nicomachus wrote “Introduction to Arithmetic” nearly 2,000 years ago, but he also seems to have come up with the first mathematically-based mind blows in Syria. Given the average person’s understanding of mathematics at that time, who WOULDN’T think Nicomachus was a wizard? #shorts
🔺 #shirt #shorts 🔺 join our brain food club to get it! http://www.curiositybox.com I’ve been working on a new Vsauce1 video for the last few months — I always seem to pick topics that take A LOT of research … and I love it 🙂 It’d be rad if I made quicker videos, but then […]
Get the Vsauce Curiosity Box: https://www.curiositybox.com/vsauce2 Probability is one of the clearest, more straightforward disciplines within mathematics. Unfortunately, almost nothing in mathematics is murkier and more misleading than… probability. WHAT?! Belgian mathematician Maurice Kraitchik posed a simple question about wagering wallets, and in doing so he revealed a paradoxical mismatch between a raw, indisputable math […]

Tossing the iron filings from our magnetic zen garden at one of its magnets to visualize the field lines of magnet force. https://www.curiositybox.com/ “How do you clean the iron off the magnet?” Good question.

What happens when you take a number, reverse it and add them together? Over and over and over? Something quite SYMMETRICAL emerges. Except for 196… and no one knows why. #shorts

Borrow $10, but only take $5. Then your friend will owe you $5, and you’ll owe your friend $5, and it’ll cancel out… except for the original $5 he’s already given you. RIGHT?! And that’s the $5 logic trap. #shorts

If Pinocchio’s nose when he lies, what happens if he says, “My nose grows now?” If he’s telling the truth, his nose won’t grow. But if it doesn’t grow, and he’s just said it will, then he’s lying. Pinocchio’s nose only grows when it doesn’t grow? WHAT? #shorts
