The January stories at the main FCP site: (1) Why does a falling chimney break? Why do they sometimes fall the wrong way (which can be quite humorous, as you can see in the videos)? (2) How can a bartender pour six different colors into shot glasses from the same container? (3) A tippy top can be made from spheres. (4) The invasion of the tumbleweeds and the attack of the giant tumbleweeds. (5) I offer an explanation for a mysterious sound made by a stone hitting an icy pond.
