Have you ever wondered why stars twinkle? Or why the Earth is round rather than, say, square or triangular? Or even why we have earwax?

Science Drops! answers these and many questions in a quirky and fun-filled 90 seconds or less!

Find out why earwax is your friend; why flamingos stand on one leg; why buttered toast lands on the floor butter-side down, and how you can make it sure it doesn't.


Enjoy a fresh Drop every Monday and Friday!
