Nym Alous: This video is the first time I had seen (or heard of) the Magnus effect. It was a couple of years ago, and I thought it was interesting and left it at that. I recently rediscovered How Ridiculous and I am enjoying their videos quite a bit, but I would not have given them a second glance if they hadn't included this little bit of science. Greats!
