Yeah, until you get to college and they tell you it's not the electrons that move, it's the HOLES. Wha? And you run screaming from the classroom because EVERYTHING YOU KNOW IS WRONG.
Hmm. So that video was awesome and I totally learned some things, but it still doesn't address the thing I've always (seriously, for DECADES now I've been hoping for an explanation that makes intuitive sense) found most confusing and brainfuckish about fire. Flames seem to give us all the right perceptual cues for seeing them as physical objects, maybe as globs of some sort of fluid. And yet, as I understand it, they're not physical objects in any meaningful sense, and this is just totally stressful and unfair.
And "dark matter." And "dark energy."
Did you even watch the video? Because your explanation was boring (and had an edge of "Does that satisfy you? Good, now leave me alone.") while the video was exciting and fun (and had an edge of "I'm so glad you asked. This is going to be cool.").
