The Stanley Milgrim experiment is a series of radical experiments that test the willingness of individuals to obey authority. Individual variables are changed in order to determine what influences the test subjects. In nearly every case, the fundamental result is the same.
The MythBusters analyze the results of their "talking to plants" experiment with bush peas. While they cannot come to a reliable conclusion due to the small sample size used, they find that exposing plants to any form of sound, whether positive or negative, helps them grow better.
A government agency tries to figure out what all these space cubes are capable of by examining them in various situations.
The CyberSquad wonders whether or not five cyber-fireflies, or gleamers, will be enough to power the Mini-Wreaker. By using the variable, B, to refer to a gleamer, they discover that a single gleamer provides six glows of power. Afterwards, they determine that, if they fill all five power slots with gleamers, they will have an output of 30 glows of power, which should be enough for the Mini-Wreaker.
This clip illustrates that the absolute value of -1 is 1.
