Video inside: could someone explain how this works?

    I dont get it... my face was like O_O at the end of the video

    he uses e=mc^2 to explain how his "energy" goes in to produce "mass". But can it be explained from a more mathematical/geometrical perspective too?

    We've had countless discussions on this triangle "paradox". If you look closely, it's not a triangle. I don't believe it has a uniform slope.

    It is a well known thing dude. The hypotenuse is not a straight line :) ... no E = mc^2 funda here.
