    "Unless I spin it perfectly, such that it never tilts"
    "It's been specifically designed to lose energy as slowly as possible"
    "It's a trade secret"

    Is this a Jojo reference?

    Huh! Seems like physics toys would have a harder time keeping secrets, no? After all, enough math and experiments would discover them!
    Also, as a communist I must say it's gross to keep "trade secrets". I understand why it is done under our CURRENT economic system but this would be inexcusable under socialism and/or communism and both would rightly call for the death and revelations of the originator! Hail Satan. Cthulhu R'lyeh.

      Ah.. in before any lazy persons whine about my injecting politics into a science video: EVERYTHING is political, including understanding the real world for what it is.
      We would have nothing but caves and fire if not for industrious workers like me and you! Politics determines what actions are taken by the rich(read and literally the wealthy ruling class) and us, the workers. Did I mention I am a communist? We already rule the world, it takes only our combined action to take it!!!

    hey Michael I have this really cool science toy where it's this hourglass looking piece that has a magnet inside of it and a piece of glass that pushes on and the glass goes in a base that it floats above and it's able to float above the base probably using magnets and it pushes against the glass and I was wondering if you could find a toy like this and explain how it works it would be greatly appreciated 🙏😊🙏😉🙏😉😊
