Toybox Physics Viewers Choice Poll!

Stop staring at that pigeon...

...and vote for your favorite ToyBox Physics video. Voting ends at 11:59:59.99 pm on Tuesday the 16th (that's tomorrow if you are reading this today or today if you are reading this tomorrow).
We've picked our favorite video for the contest and now it's time for you to tell us your favorite. We will announce both winners simultaneously (WRT our local reference frame)!

*WRT is physics talk for "with respect to".


  1. The pigeon hypnotized me and I had to vote! I enjoyed the videos and even learned a few things. Now I will anxiously await the results.
