Discover how to make love hearts from Mobius strips, 4D frames from drinking straws and pipe-cleaners, and other maths tricks in this entertaining talk by Matt Parker.

My mom is pretty cool because when I said, โ€œHey, that recycling symbol is a 3 turn mobius loop,โ€ she actually said that that was cool instead of just not caring like my friends.

i actually just watched this whole thing without realizing it.... I walked into this being like, (looks at title) oh, ok, cool, this sounds fun, (looks at 1 hr timer) oooohh, ok, maybe not, uhm, maybe we'll just skip around, I'll probably get bored at some point and click off anyway.
Suddenly -- "and im going to finish there, thank you all very much" and im thinking wait, what? it's over? did I just watch that whole thing? Did I really just sit here FOR AN HOUR, OMFG, HOWWWWTAF.

I love his pride in his nerdiness about the beer can.

Long live the nerds!
