How a car engine works

How a car engine works by Jacob O’Neal. I’ve recently been having engine trouble with my car about whose workings I know practically nothing. Nothing!

He has a bunch of other stuff worth checking out, too. I like this animated Cheeatah infographic and this one about porn and dopamine (whose scientific data on ‘porn viewing’ is made up, but whose graphical presentation I love).


Movement of the magnetic poles

The magnetic poles are not fixed but tend to move around higgledy-piggledy. It turns out once the North Pole got lost and found itself in CANADA! Crazy.
