Did you know you can't really touch anything? (and other things we didn't cover)

Are you into physics? Not so much? Regardless of your views on physics, you're going to find something interesting in today's installment of GeekBytes.

Are you sitting down? You're actually hovering over your chair [YouTube]

If you've ever taken a physics or chemistry course, you probably already know that electrons repel each other and can't really touch. And since we're all made of atoms (which contain electrons), as are chairs and other objects, does that mean we're not really touching them? Confusing, isn't it? This short Physics Minute video will bring it all together, but I'll spoil the bottom line for you right here: You're hovering over your chair! [via Gizmodo]

The Home Aquaponics Kit uses fish poo to nurture your plants [Kickstarter]

If you're into physics, but not that much, you probably know how important recycling is. And what's better to recycle than your fish's waste? If you've always dreamed of growing some herbs or flowers, the Home Aquaponics System can do the hard work for you by reusing dirty water from your fish tank. The plants get their nourishment from the fish waste, and the clean water returns to the tank for another round. This is also a great solution if you hate cleaning your fish tank, and let's face it, who likes doing that? [via Gizmag]
