I’ve had quite a few readers ask me to explain String Theory to them in a way that is understandable to those without an advanced science degree in Physics. Until now I haven’t been able to think of an appropriate way to do so, quite simply because I don’t understand the darn thing myself.
Thankfully, A Cappella Science has put together a BRILLIANT and amazing science video that explains it all and it doesn’t even matter if you still don’t understand String Theory afterwards, because the lyrical manipulation and music is so damn good, nobody cares! Anything performed to the tune of Bohemian Rhapsody is entertaining.
So, whoever told you the mash-up of Green Day’s “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” and Oasis’ “Wonderwall” was the best that’s ever been done: they were lying and here’s why…
We’re back with another Epic Rap Battle of History, this time between Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla.
Edison (1847 – 1931), also known as the “Wizard of Menlo Park,” was an American businessman and inventor credited for the innovation of the light bulb and the motion picture camera. Tesla (1856 – 1943) not only has the coolest name, like ever, he’s also a mechanical and electrical engineer extraordinaire. Amongst other achievements, he came up with the idea of AC: alternating current.
In this epic video, these two giants of science and industry battle it out and in the end, you get to decide who wins!

If you have NO idea what I’m talking about with “Death Star” this and “Darth Vader” that, you are missing out on a very important chunk of cinematic history and you should irritate your girlfriend immediately by going on a Star Wars binge. You do not deserve to call yourself a nerd/science enthusiast/human if you have not educated yourself in the greatest science fiction trilogy ever made. Like ever.
Remember, it’s the original Star Wars episode 4, 5 and 6 you should be after: filmed in the 70’s. The trashy and shoddy “prequels” were made 10 years ago and every Star Wars nerd on the planet has been cursing George Lucas ever since.
We’re back with another Epic Rap Battle of History! This time, technology geniuses Bill Gates (creator of Microsoft and the PC), Steve Jobs (creator of Apple) take each other on in a verbal battle that drops mental bombs and “Oooh no he ‘dints!!”

In this video taken from Season 2 of the hilariously funny Epic Rap Battles of History, these two giants of science and technology battle it out and in the end, you get to decide who wins!
For those of you who aren’t nerdy enough to know who super computer “Hal” is, do yourself a favour and watch one of history’s most epic and sensational nerd movies, 2001 Space Odyssey by Stanley Kubrick. It’s a lesson in cinematic history and just how advanced the previous generations all thought we’d be in the year 2001. Oops.
I’ve never been a huge fan of rap, but the boys who bring us “Epic Rap Battles of History” have revolutionized my opinion of this music genre!
In this awesome sciencey video, watch Albert Einstein tear shreds out of Steven Hawkins and Hawkins give Einstein a tongue-lashing of truly EPIC proportions. It’s absolutely hilarious and probably the most warped history/science lesson you’ll ever sit down to!
