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.

Funny guy and typical of physics TAs, but not much real physics content in his act.

Hi Saad

You made me laugh. It was refreshing.

Can you ask Super-Conductivity, the one with special powers that fights crime, to help me start this scientific revolution?

I think I will need all the help I can ... hehe.

Keep making people laugh. I will vote for you because you make people feel good about Physics, and that is interesting and relevant.

Good luck with the contest.

Teresa

Ha ha, funny! I wish you good luck! If you have time, I would appreciate if you will watch and rate my videos The puzzle of quantum reality and Can a black hole keep a secret?.

Best regards,

DUUUUUUDE - I loved your video. So much so that I posted it on my FB page. Thanks so much. My children are all (half) Indian and will appreciate your humor as much as I did. Loved the Erkel reference.

Saad,

Thank you for your funny video that brings much needed humor to this contest! I just left you a vote, which brings you closer to the 10 votes needed to be considered for the finals.

I hope you have the time to take a look at my not-that-funny trilogy of videos "This Is Physics".

Part 3, "Physics Into Darkness", is still short on community votes, so if you could rate it, it would be very appreciated! Here are the direct links:

1. One Physics To Rule Them All

2. Forces Are Not Enough

3. Physics Into Darkness
