Happy Saturday y'all! Below, I have rounded up some things for you to think about this weekend:

1. Ah, physics. Prepare to be mesmerized: here is a video of 32 out-of-sync metronomes that become in-sync due to the transfer of force.

2. New research shows that half of all food produce in the United States is thrown away. In fact, discarded food is the largest component of landfills and incinerators in the country, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. This is a terrible tragedy—there are plenty of people that could be eating that food, and we could be giving back to the Earth by composting food waste rather than throwing it in the garbage.

That's all for this week's edition of Weekend Thoughts. Until next week, keep thinking wilder.
