    Rediscovered this science and physics teacher from way back when via YT videos. I remember watching his stuff with fascination when I was a wee lad and public TV was about all Mom would let me watch (well, I did sneak in some of Batman with Adam West).

    I thought some of the other older sciencey types here might enjoy his videos…. The younger wingnuts might like it too.

    Just hearing Mr. Wizard's voice reminds me of all the TV I watched as a kid. The rest was forgettable.

    I'm sure he was an honorable man, but he always seemed like a perv.
