I love The Explainer. He/she/it takes an item from the news and poses a question that you didn't realize you wanted answered. Then, of course, they answer it.
You may have seen this amusing tidbit about a genius who decided to smuggle cocaine in his leg cast. That is, the cast was made out of cocaine. No, this is not a Cheech and Chong movie. It actually happened.
You may have expected The Explainer to teach you how to make your own cast out of the white stuff. You'd be wrong. He/she/it takes a serious, but far more interesting, left turn. Because the person's leg was actually broken and authorities are currently investigating whether that was by design, The Explainer helps you solve the vexing problem, "How would I go about breaking my own leg?"
Don't have lunch first.
P.S. I fibbed a little. At the end, they do tell you how to make the coke cast. Good luck with that.
