Its ok if can’t wrap your head around it… the sum of 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5… to infinity to me would be an exponentially huge number. Most non mathematicians would a agree, theoretically it would be right? However its wrong, the answer is in fact, -1/12 and is found all over the place in the world of Physics.

The following video does some mathematical calculations to show you how exactly that the addition of all natural numbers comes to be a negative fraction.

Even after watching the video, I am still amazed at how its possible.…

Educational Youtube Channels worth visiting (and some not so educational)

In my spare time I love to browse Youtube, but unlike most of the world which is more interested in “i can has cheezburger” and Epic fail videos, I prefer educational videos. Here is a small list of channels I like to frequent along with a few sample videos to give you a taste:

First up is C. G. P. Grey which explains a lot of strange geographical/governmental grey areas and tries to limit some confusion. Here is their most recent upload (as of the date of this post)

Next up, another highly educational channel called Minute Physics which as you guessed it, teaches you all about physics in a short period (most videos are under 5 minutes).…
