Hervé This Drops Humor, Science on Your Mindburger [video]


French gastrochemist Hervé This recently gave a lecture Imperial College London in which he performed experiments on egg whites, bet the audience cases of champagne against any number of theories, and basically charmed the pants off everyone. For example, imagine the following statement delivered in a French accent: "We transformed liquid, yellow, transparent product into a solid white one. This is a miracle better than Jesus Christ was transforming water into wine. I am not saying that I am Jesus Christ." The video's almost an hour long, but if you stick it out, you just might learn something.
