Science of Stupid on NatGeo

A new NatGeoTV show I found.

Hilarious and painful to watch at the same time. “What went wrong and why.”  And “Don’t try any of this…” There is always a disclaimer at the very beginning and throughout the entire show.

Seth Herzog is funny to begin with and then he improves for each clip-the outtakes are included during the ending credits. These are just as entertaining as his intro’s as there isn’t always context.

This show is a compilation of YouTube videos of epic fails from around the world and the scientific explanation of why it failed, what law they weren’t following (such as Newton’s laws of motion) and an example of how it should have worked, as completed by a professional.

Not bad for 30 minutes of “ oooooooo, nooooooo, that looks like something is broken” and “wow, how stupid can you get?” and “why would you record that AND THEN put it on the internet?”

Sigh and laugh, it really is funny and educational.

Here is the description from the NatGeo website: “On the Science of Stupid, some self-selecting, amateur scientists go head-to-head for the crowned title of most ill-informed as they test scientific principles like torque, gravity, and Newton’s laws. As our amateur scientists have learned the hard way: try and break the laws of science, and the laws will break you. It’s the science of stupid.” (


About Writing War Bride

I rock many jobs, usually all at once. Very gratefully, I have stayed in Archaeology and Writing through many moves around the country. Fingers crossed it stays feasts longer than famine and that it rains more than pours. I have been a technical writer and an Ensurer of esprit de corps, among many other things. Add Free Lance Writer, one time Publicity Chair and current Treasurer of non-profits in to the mix. Can't forget to thank the Military for my lifestyle and those willing to hire a military spouse. Always remember to bloom where you are planted!
