THE SHOW'S PHILOSOPHY

1. NOT AIMED AT THE TV AUDIENCE, NOR EVEN AT YOUTUBE
  These YT videos are meant only for myself  ...but me at age 9yrs.  
  This series is a set of adult secrets that I'd wished I'd known 
  about back when I was a kid.   

  Imagine that you had a machine which lets you pass messages back in
  time to your early years.  Which cool secrets and weird tricks do you
  wish you'd known about back then?  My own childhood isn't accessible, 
  too bad.  But wait!  The childhoods of millions of future adults are 
  sitting right there online, waiting to be altered!  :)   Make no 
  mistake, this is not about 'Teaching Important Science Facts.' Instead 
  it's about revealing secret tricks and techniques that only grownups 
  know about.

2. FEATURE SOME EMBARRASSINGLY CRUDE, SEMI-INCOMPETENT DEMOS
  My goal isn't to impress other teachers.  That would just convince kids 
  that science is way complicated & adults-only.  Instead my goal is to 
  lead kids into saying something like this: "Hey, I could do that too... 
  but MINE WOULD BE BETTER."   So my demos need to be crafted so that an 
  adult science expert will sneer at their crudeness and simplicity.  (But 
  in saying that, I realize that R. Feynman would probably be impressed 
  because they are so crude and simple.  New goal: impress Feynman.)

3. DO INTERESTING DEMOS AND STUNNING PHENOMENA ONLY
  Imagine which kind of odd science secrets would have driven you crazy 
  with joy, back when you were nine.

4. AVOID THE "EXPERT LOOK"
  No professional w/labcoat and glasses.  Keep any advanced degrees hidden; 
  instead do some Redneck Science.  No suit and tie.  Carefully preserve 
  the look of an out-of-shape loser in a t-shirt.  Don't shave.  Don't 
  clean the kitchen mess.  Maybe even blacken a tooth for that white trash 
  look. [Update: I lost a huge filling between front teeth!  Cool!  Made 
  many videos, but can't tell if anyone noticed.  LATER UPDATE: finally 
  had it repaired.  No more toothless weirdo look.]

5. USE NO LABORATORY
  Perform demonstrations on a grubby kitchen counter.  Or even better, on 
  a living room couch ...in my lap.  Keep pushing the cat away.

6. BREAK VIDEO TRADITIONS
  No classroom lecture, no professional studio, not even a lab bench.  
  Use tiny handheld camera in the talent's own viewpoint (often clamped 
  under his chin!)

7.ELIMINATE ALL JARGON: REPLACE OBSCURE TERMS WITH THEIR FULL DEFINITIONS
  Don't say Alternator, say "AC electric generator."   Never say ions, 
  instead say "electrically charged atoms."  Say "charge flow" instead of
  electric current, and "energy flow" instead of Power

8. CAREFULLY AVOID USING EXISTING DEMOS
  There's no passion in plagarism.  So, try to exclude known demos, 
  instead pull new ideas out of nowhere.

9. EASILY-FOUND MATERIALS ONLY
  Replace gleaming acrylic and machined aluminum with dirty cardboard.  
  Buy all your science equipment from the grocery store, or if there's
  no other option, from Home Depot and Radio Shack.

10. NO TOOLS NEEDED
  When I was a kid, drilling a hole in wood was nearly impossible.  Our
  family was all gradeschool teachers with a kitchen tool drawer, no power 
  tools.  I only had pointy scissors.  Cardboard, glue, and mayo jars are 
  OK.  A razor knife really is just for older students.

11. USE EXPERIMENTS THAT ALWAYS WORK
  If it requires considerable expertise to make the demo succeed, it'll be
  guaranteed to turn kids off to science.  Never forget that if kids fail 
  to get the demo working, they'll feel incompetent and blame themselves.
  Avoid including any such "psychological toxin" which kills off the
  scientist in everyone.
