July 2013 stories at The Flying Circus of Physics

The July stories at the main FCP site: (1) the impossible stairwell, where you walk up the stairs in order to reach the bottom, (2) Groucho walking and running, and the duck walk of Chuck Berry, (3) a platypus hunts by detecting the tiny electrical signals of the nerve impulses of the shrimp it startles into motion, (4) pub trick of the month: a bridge of coins extending off a table’s edge and then back again.
