Falkirk Wheel - Falkirk Scotland
The Falkirk Wheel takes about as much energy as it would to boil about 8 kettles of water
What? WHAT? What? WHAAAT?
Wait isn’t that the thing from that movie with Jodie Foster and the aliens?
Apparently this is a real rotating boat lift from Scotland and according to the UK tourist website it is indeed so well balanced it actually takes only 1.5kWh of electricity per rotation and that makes me so happy.
Engineers are magicians.

Common Core Math - Subtract by counting up
Via Eric Erickson, this is what his 9 year old is having to deal with. It’s so convoluted that it took me an absurd amount of time to figure out the logic behind it. This is no way less complicated than subtraction.
UPDATE: An astute reader points out, “To go from 40 to 100, you still need to subtract 40 from 100 to figure out that you need to add 60.” Exactly. So, what’s the point of this exercise other than to frustrate 9 year olds and turn them completely off of math and science?
