In Georgia, we call it "Brain Coke"

Remember in the 5th grade when you learned the parts of the electromagnetic spectrum? Yeah, neither do I. Good thing there's BrainPop 

BrainPop is a site for students and educators, but fun for everyone. It has over 600 informative, interesting, and extremely cute flash videos under the categories of Math, Science, Social Studies, English, Technology, Health, and Arts & Music. The videos are hosted by the affable Tim and his robot, Moby. Movies have supporting material in the form of comics, quizzes, and home experiments with Bob, the ex-lab rat.
Topics range from pirates to graphing linear equations to Louis Armstrong to AIDS. It's a subscription site, but there are always some movies for free under every category. You can also sign up for a 14 day free trial, which I highly recommend. Gift subscriptions are also available and make the perfect present for your favorite blogger.
So get watching and start reclaiming all that early education you erased with those college bong hits.
