True astonishment is hard to come by when each day each day brings a fresh batch of surprising shenanigans (thank you, Youtube). In fifty minutes we’re bringing you five bold presentations guaranteed to leave you smarter and savvier than when you arrived. Hear about applying math as a magical business tool like infamous card-counter Jeffrey Ma (they even made the movie 21 about him), attempting to generate God in a petri dish à la philosopher Jonathon Keats, and even that flying car we’ve been expecting since the 80’s from Dr. Paul Moller. Our group of abstract intellectuals pushes mental, physical and sometimes legal boundaries on the regular. Hold on to your jaws and check out how these serious minds are debunking reality and defying expectations.
