If you are aware of an interesting new academic paper (that has been published in a peer-reviewed journal or has appeared on the arXiv), a conference talk (at an official professional scientific meeting), an external blog post (by a professional scientist) or a news item (in the mainstream news media), which you think might make an interesting topic for an FQXi blog post, then please contact us at forums@fqxi.org with a link to the original source and a sentence about why you think that the work is worthy of discussion. Please note that we receive many such suggestions and while we endeavour to respond to them, we may not be able to reply to all suggestions.

Please also note that we do not accept unsolicited posts and we cannot review, or open new threads for, unsolicited articles or papers. Requests to review or post such materials will not be answered. If you have your own novel physics theory or model, which you would like to post for further discussion among then FQXi community, then please add them directly to the "Alternative Models of Reality" thread, or to the "Alternative Models of Cosmology" thread. Thank you.

Dear Mr. Campbell and Mr. Moskowec,

Very funny, very well made and fast paced. Some of the clips are from Tosh.0 (one of our guilty pleasures). In particular for the guy jumping onto the ice swimming pool is this in Russia? In addition to being very funny the physics of forces is clearly explained.

Good luck with the contest. Best,

Mike, Max, Dan, Simon, Doug

Evan and Chris,

Your video is well produced and contains a lot of interesting clips: it is certainly doing well with the FQXi community... congratulations! Everybody knows that physics hurts, and a lot of your clips prove it!

Having taught introductory physics for the past 25 years, I cannot help but offer some constructive criticism about the way you present the relationship between...

Well done, a funny video! I will use this in my physics lessons for high school kids. It is exactly the kind of attention grabbing, witty, action packed type of video that students need to get them motivated and interested in physics.

Good stuff!

hi even

i think everything too in the movies is pure physics,so i think your video makes it too into the movies and into describing events-physics.Fantanstic very well done,just voted for you.Kindly spare your time to vote and review mine here- http://fqxi.org/community/forum/topic/2223.All the best hats up
