Fun thought experiments using math and physics to analyze out-of-the-box (and often impractical) solutions to everyday problems, with lots of fun xkcd illustrations. I especially liked some of the guest interviews where he asked an astronaut how to land an airplane under increasingly improbable situations, and how he got a pro tennis player to test whether a drone could be shot down by a tennis ball.
