If I were Santa—or the egg in this video—I don’t think I’d particularly like getting sucked through a chimney in this fashion. I wonder if Santa re-kindles the fire and tries to increase air pressure in the house relative to the outside in order to get back out the chimney. (Video credit: Hooked on Science)

    Probably the least technical FD video I’ve seen, and also a very cool experiment that I have done myself.
