Hi Mr. Krampf I was wondering 2 things. For starters I am a girl and my chin is not round. Second when people get knots in your body how are those made? Thanks for the videos I have been homeschooling for all my life but your videos have really helped me learn science!!

Bone structure changes as you age, so you might be able to see the difference more strongly by looking at adult's chins.

When people talk about having a knot in their back, they are usually talking about a muscle that is spasming, and won't relax.

I love this video! But I miss the bloopers!

A couple of questions for you, Mr. Krampf. Is there a way to tell if someone was obese or very skinny by looking at the bones? Also, how can you tell how old an adult is if all their bones have been fused together? This was a wonderful video, thanks for sharing!

Nice tarantula on your computer screen. At least, I think it's a tarantula. Oh, well.

Hey, I'm a girl too, and it doesn't feel round with me. Just wait until you get older. Yay, fellow homeschooler!!!2

Your skeleton is still growing, so its shape will vary. Adult skulls are much easier to read.

how often do u make new science videos??????
if i have already asked this question please answer again because i forgot which one [if i did already ask]!
thanks a million

rkrampf wrote on Tue, 11/29/2011 - 02:14:

I make them as frequently as possible, and some take longer than others. For example, the Rocks video took more than 3 weeks and quite a bit of travel, while the Haunted Pumpkin video was easy to shoot and edit in one day. And of course, all the other parts of the site, from web design to tech support take time too. It is sometimes a challenge with the site being a "one man show", but I enjoy it all.

This vid was really cool! I had no idea you could tell which is the dominant hand, I thought that stuff was only for humor in TV shows! :D

Also, I'm sorry to bug you, but the spam filter always tries to stop me. I've tried making every change I could think of, and nothing happens! :( Please help I love your website and I want to comment easily!

Dear Mr. Krampf ,

Do you have any other experiments with Holiday themes? I really like your videos & how some of them match the Holidays! Thank you!!!

Several people have asked for a Thanksgiving video, and I am researching some ideas. Any suggestions?

Anonymous wrote on Mon, 11/14/2011 - 16:17:

You should make a video on what the Indians told the pilgrims to do. They told them to put fish heads under their corn to make it grow. This made the pilgrims have a great harvest thus they invited the Indians to celebrate. Thanksgiving! Why do fish heads nurish the soil so well as opposed to just normal old soil?
In case a "fish head" is too gross to put in a video, you could just do a piece of fish that's not the head. :)

Wonderful! I am working on some new videos right now. In the mean time, have you read any of the written experiments? On each of the category pages (Life Science, Chemical Science, etc.), on the right hand side of the page is a list of written experiments from that category. There are LOTS of fun things to try while you are waiting for more videos.

Enjoyed watching with my littles and bigs. We got a kick out of saying the big words together.

Dear Mr. Kramph,

I was just thinking the other day about how many people love your videos & lots of people have a favorite. So I was just wondering out of all the videos you have done, which one is YOUR favorite? I think mine is the haunted pumpkin. Thank You!!

rkrampf wrote on Tue, 11/01/2011 - 23:40:

That is a difficult question! I probably had the most fun making the Radioactive video, but the Rocks video is the one I am most pleased with. It took quite a bit of special effects to get that one to work the way I wanted it to. I'm glad you like this one. I had a lot of fun putting it together.

Which video is the rock video? You made me curious and I have looked for it on your site, but can't figure out which rock one it is.

You will find the Rocks video here:

I love your Halloween videos. It gives me an idea for an appropriate Halloween activity that is appropriate for the season, fits right in with our lessons and the students will love trying to read a skeleton. Thank you.
