Got this off of Gizmodo today. James Kakalios, physicist and author of The Physics of Superheroes was a consultant on the upcoming Watchmen movie. In this clip he explains a bit of the physics behind Watchmen character Doctor Manhattan. Encouraging to think that the folks involved with bringing this to the big screen might have thought even a smidge past the “but it’s cool!” part.

    Very cool. And even cooler that it does not autoplay, unlike that Dove commercial you embedded a few entries ago. (I can’t wait for that one to fall off the most recent entries page. You need to blog more.) 😉

    Yeah, I’m fully aware of how annoying autoplay embedded content is. I’ve tried just about everything to keep that fucking movie from starting on its own, but the 2.7 rev of WordPress seems bound and determined to ignore “autostart” tags. And of course, I don’t have the problem here on any of my machines, PC or Mac. I’ve tried one more thing; let me know if that fixes it.

    I think you got it fixed. Thank you.
