Video description
We're all human, and therefore occasionally make small errors. Sometimes these can have slightly bigger consequences. Here's why last week's video was a filler video.

Don't Shoot for the Moon and Miss

Why was there a bit of grain and noise in the most recent season of Citation Needed? Here's a story, a motto that definitely isn't for use in your regular everyday life, and also a complete false start.

British Plugs Are Better Than All Other Plugs, And Here's Why

http://tomscott.com - http://twitter.com/tomscott - ALL THE ELECTRICS I USED WERE UNPLUGGED. DO NOT DO THIS. Yep, I'm going all patriotic again. And while I'm willing to bet that a good number of British folks know the first half of this video, there's one thing about slack in here that I only just learned myself.

Making Artificial Earthquakes with a Four-Tonne Steel Ball

In Göttingen, Germany, there's a four-tonne steel ball that can be raised up a 14-metre tower -- and then dropped in less than two seconds, crashing back to earth. It makes tiny, artificial earthquakes: here's why. Thanks to all the team at Wiechert'sche Erdbebenwarte Göttingen! You can find out more about them here: https://www.erdbebenwarte.de/ Three things I had to cut out of this video, because they didn't quite fit into the story or because I couldn't film them: The reason the steel ball survived two world wars is because the university's records listed it by use as a "rock-ball", not by composition as...

The Moonpig Bug: How 3,000,000 Customers' Details Were Exposed

It's been all over the British news today: developer Paul Price found a bug in photo-crap-maker Moonpig's site, one that might have exposed three million users' personal information. Paul's got a great technical post about it at http://ifc0nfig.com/moonpig-vulnerability/ -- but there's no decent non-techie explanation except for the one-paragraph summaries in newspapers. It was a perfect storm of tech incompetence: here's how to avoid doing it yourself.

We Are Sick Of Each Other!

Having spent the best part of three weeks travelling together, we thought it might be safer to do this week's park bench in the airport, so we get longer without seeing each other.

Why We Bleep Some Swearing

Sometimes we ****ing swear. (I try not to on camera; Matt, not so much.) Most of the time, we bleep it. But not always: here's why, along with diversions about Ofcom, "adult content", and Jazz FM -- from some garden chairs somewhere under the Heathrow approach path.
