Today, we are doing SCIENCE! Did a parent ever warn you not to stick a soda in the freezer? Sure, that may have been a rhetorical question, but what about sticking a can of soda in liquid nitrogen? NurdRage on YouTube does all kinds of science experiments … and you should probably let him do them instead of trying yourself.

Frozen is Disney’s latest animated masterpiece. My daughter has practically memorized all the songs, so I hear the music constantly after work. And the songs are stuck in my head when I go out running. Personally, I found the story to be very sad. Then again, I tear up when the Emperor zaps Luke at the end of Return of the Jedi. For those of you who haven’t seen Frozen yet, this video won’t give away any spoilers:
Dr. Wilson, PhD.
Our superstar UX lead here at Applian, Dr. Jeffrey Wilson, PhD, spends a lot of time analyzing debug logs from customers. He likes to give customers a quick 2 minute video to test record so that he can keep the logs small. So he frequently searches out these short video clips which end up playing a vital role in the data logging procedure. Needless to say, he sees quite a few videos (and other types of media), so now we’ve given him an opportunity twice a month to share in his…. umm… work habits.
To get the ball rolling, here is his first video suggestion. Movies, especially science fiction movies, tend to have plenty of logical inconsistencies. The YouTube channel, How It Should Have Ended, gives their take on alternate endings for MANY movies. So, without further ado, sit back and enjoy a new look at a classic.
We hope you enjoyed this first installment of Dr. Wilson’s Possibly humorous Distraction. See what we did there with the title? Dr. Wilson PhD. Get it?
We just discovered that cbs.com, abc.com and nbc.com are no longer using a video encryption system to stream their videos. Apparently they have become smart to the fact that getting more distribution of their shows (with the ads included) makes more business sense.
See for yourself – give downloading videos from CBS, NBC or ABC a try!
