A Feynman Chaser

On the Badscience Blog, Ben Goldacre may well have started a trend this week, and it has since been copied on a couple of other blogs, giving a rather neat and pleasing balance to some idiocy. Ben posted a video of a homeopath, explaining how homeopathy works. Featuring a woman I have called Dr. Dippy. She mangles all of science in an astonishingly deceitful manner as far as I can see. Perhaps she just had no idea what she was talking about. Dr. Dippy may have caught on that Ben has been having some fun at her expense, because the video is no longer available, but careful searching has provided an alternative, which you can see on youtube. It isn’t about homeopathy, but it is Dr. Dippy.

My video clip is from a homeopath in Leeds, explaining how a doctor just removes a bulb in the dashboard, and a homeopath actually cures. Still doesn’t really say how though.

A bit silly I think, so in the spirit of the game, here is my Feynman Chaser.

 

 

I do like Feynman. There is plenty of other stuff to mix a different chaser with. Perhaps we’ll see a few more popping up around teh interwebs.

    It’s too bad more of his lectures weren’t videotaped. The Horizon special should be a good source of several minute-long clips — but there’s got to be more Feynman out there than that!

    I propose taking the Feynman lecture on Physics and illustrating them. Surely there’s a physics major out there with a penchant for drawing and time on their hands?

    I find myself skipping the content, and going straight for the Feynman chaser these days 🙂

    Hi, My name is Dorid, and I’m a Feynmanholic.
