Well, all I can say is that I am sitting here in The Pleasure Dome (my office) shaking my head in disbelief. This is because I have just discovered that for the last few decades I've been using cling film and aluminum foil incorrectly -- or, at the very least, with less-than-optimum efficiency.
I just received an email from my chum Arthur Smith in the UK. Arthur is one of the world's foremost experts in the study of cosmic rays (he's my "go to" guy when a cosmic ray question darkens my door). Arthur also farms, keeps bees, and makes his own soap (which he sells commercially), but all of that's a story for another day.
Arthur's email informed me that I was probably using my cling film and aluminum foil incorrectly, and he pointed me at the following YouTube video in a desperate attempt to get me to correct the error of my ways:
To be honest, my knee-jerk reaction when I received Arthur's email was that he was playing some sort of prank. But everything he's pointed me at in the past has proved to be of interest, so I decided to take a look.
What can I say? This video (with 1,000,000+ views and 36,000+ likes), which is created by a guy who calls himself Crazy Russian Hacker, blew me away. I simply cannot believe that for so many years I've missed the things this Crazy Russian shows. Now I cannot wait to rush home this evening and take a look at my cling film and aluminum foil packaging to see for myself. How about you -- are you already familiar with the contents of this video, or is this as much of a revelation for you as it was for me?
