    I think the guy who put this video together is most likely the jerk here.

    The problem with the upbringing of children today is that they are never told they are wrong or put in their place by parents or teachers. It’s why we have so many spoiled people thinking that they are entitled every minute of every day to whatever they want.

    That’s how science works. It’s things you find that might be right and things that are wrong. And you need to acknowledge when things are wrong. Good for Mr. Wizard.

    Pointing out that a simple-minded explanation, the product of one’s first, quick, thought is much needed today. Perhaps Mr. Wizard should be reviewing the analysis on FoxNews as it is entirely reflection free.

    Y’all need to lighten up. This was obviously tongue in cheek. I am old enough to remember this show but not too old to get the joke going on here.

    I loved Mr. Wizard! I was a 5-year old that knew about peristalsis.
    I would do my best to get up at 5am to catch it; don’t know why PBS put it on that damn early.

    @Johnny – exactly. The younger generations think everything they do and say is wonderful and don’t even seem to understand the function of criticism in teaching and learning. As long as you’re not mean, there’s nothing wrong with correcting someone.

    Well done. The person who posted this will have dumbass kids that expect the world to bend to their will. This is called education, not the self esteem crap that has replaced education in our schools today.

    I’ll say. They should re-title this comments section: “These kids today! Get off my lawn!”

    Best line in the video: “Before you leave today, YOUR head’s gonna be on that platter.”

    Can I get that on a T-shirt?

    I think the critical line to be aware of is to say that on the one hand the answer or guess is wrong and on the other to say the kid is stupid or whatever. The former is correct, the latter is jerky.

    The comments here just prove that ANYTHING apparently can be debated, even when the intent is to be SILLY and have NO serious connotation whatsoever. Sheesh people, this was hilarious and intended to be funnny, not some analysis of “oh those kids today”. @MDKLEOPERHAPS thank you!

    Lol, you all sound like a bunch of codgers. Here’s a quote from the ancient Greek play “The Clouds” by Aristophenes:

    “The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households.”

    Perhaps the only things as enduring as whiny, entitled children are whiny, entitled adults.
