Certain airlines offer very low prices on flights, and then charge for things most airlines include in the ticket price, like carry-on luggage.

Back in the early 1800's, Russian physicist Emil Lenz noted an interesting phenomenon. When he dropped a magnet through a pipe, the magnet's magnetic field created counter-rotating currents in the copper or aluminum pipe. To the naked eye, that dropped magnetic ball falls a whole lot slower when it's inside the pipe than outside. It… READ THE REST
