The Physics of Curling

"Smarter Every Day" is a fabulous series of videos. I love how I can learn more about science and technology without feeling like I've been 'dumbed-down' to.

Not sure how I came upon this particular video, but it's great! Of course, being a curler makes it cooler for me. What is particularly interesting is that Destin Sandlin, the presenter, is from Alabama - a place not known for its curling prowess. That Destin is cute, smart and personable is all bonus.

Take a gander and learn why curling looks easy but those of us who play the sport know how darned hard it can be.

  1. Of all the sports in the world, it certainly is one of the strangest. However, during the last winter olympics I found it really fascinating. I'd love to try it.
