Kids Vs. Science: Making The Greatest Grilled Cheese

The grilled cheese: simple, gooey, delicious. A cheesemonger, a food scientist, and a seasoned chef will attempt to create the ultimate version of this classic sandwich. Their competition? Three hilarious kids. Who will win?

Kids Vs. Science is a new show from Mental Floss where we assemble a team of experts to take on a simple childhood activity, and of course, put them head-to-head against a group of kids. Will the superteam of professionals be able to pool their knowledge together to make something extraordinary, or will the living balls of energy that are human children take the crown?

In this episode, the two teams will take on a culinary classic: the grilled cheese. Will they stick with a familiar recipe, or try to wow the taste buds with something new and creative? May the best team win.

Classical guitarist built a microtonal guitar from LEGO and it sounds beautiful

Most Western music is based on a twelve-tone octave with the smallest interval being a half step (or half tone, or “semitone”) up or down. Microtonal music contains intervals smaller than a semitone. (Imagine playing notes between the keys on a traditional piano.) You can hear microtonal music compositions in the work of modernist and experimental composers, from Charles Ives and Claude Debussy to Wendy Carlos and Aphex Twin.

Tolgahan Coğulu is a Turkish musician known for designing an adjustable microtonal guitar and performing unique arrangements of Anatolian folk music and Ottoman maqam music. Most recently though, he took a cue from his young son and built a fantastic microtonal guitar from LEGO!

Video of incredible planetary system created from paint, oil, and soap

French video artist Thomas Blanchard created “Mini Planets” by mixing paint, oil, inks, and soap to stunning effect. It reminds me of the psychedelic alternate universes manifested in the 1960s liquid light shows. Blanchard writes:

The visual compositions have been created out of paint, oil, inks and soap. All videos were filmed in 8K with the RED Helium camera with 100 mm L macro lens Canon and MPE 60 mm macro lens Canon. The editing of the video is in 4K.

A humorous comparison of Trump and Obama at the National Prayer Breakfast

Still seething from the impeachment trial (and if it wasn’t that, it would be something else), Trump had a hard time containing himself the following morning at the National Prayer Breakfast. His morning speech was full of his usual narcissistic vitriol. What makes it even more amusing is the comparison between him and Barack Obama in Jimmy Kimmel’s montage above.
