Hey it has the same microphone from wal-mart that I have!

I couldn't stand to look at this guy for ten minutes so I listened to it in the background. I couldn't stop imagining Linus from Peanuts on stage delivering this speech.

It's gross how to her, being 'into science' means watching particular television shows instead of reading.
Considering books usually delve into many times more detail and information than a TV show could possibly hope to do, yeah actually it DOES tend to indicate overall education on a subject.
Konversekid is right, you can operate a McDonalds cash register without even knowing HOW to read. Take that, guys.
I understand to have an truly applicable understanding of science you require to either read or to actually have a formal education, however to simply enjoy science you do not. There are however many means in which someone can become knowledgeable within a modern context. I probably shouldn't have defended an idiot who watches basic science programming. It's obvious I was to rash in making that statement and I was just expressing how much I hate books, while I still maintain a healthy thirst for knowledge and I mostly quench it in other manners.
I didn't say you had to read _books_. My point is that if you are reading about something relating to science you are more likely to be engaging the issues actively: searching google, wikipedia, reading blogs, commenting - rather than simply being fat in front of whatever the Discovery Channel wants to tell you about.
That this person, when defending her interest in science can only name two sciency-pop culture shows she watches...that is gross.
No, of course you don't need to only be reading books, but jesus christ, please be reading something.
There are very few things that will set off a knee-jerk reaction from me when meeting people. One of them is "I don't like reading and think it's unimportant." Aside from speaking, it's the most common form of all human expression, and where almost all our history and knowledge exists. I have trouble comprehending that a person could say that, and not have extremely narrow intellectual interests.

TwiztidAsh (uploader) @TheCrazedGazelle Well, we know that they work because negative & positive particles attract, but actually science has not been able to explain WHY it works or why magnetic fields can pass through any substance. So everyone out there who's trying to be a smart ass about that line has epically failed, because no one knows why magnetic fields pass through everything like a ghost. 2 days ago
Because electrons and shit are charged particles, and when electrons die they become ghosts and can pass through all kinds of shit. Then they can make other charged partcles move by scaring them and shit.

Some of her responses to the comments are a fucking miracle:
"I made a video after this showing off some of the books I have, although I have traded a lot of my ancient history books on a book-trading site for books on ghosts"
re: the scientific community's understanding of fuckin' magnets: "no one knows why magnetic fields pass through everything like a ghost."
Maybe magnets are some kind of ghosts?!? I eagerly await the results of her research...
