Me too, Solitary. I would want to see him climb a tall ladder, at least. Pretty neat demonstration of physics!

I think you can explain that solely on mechanics, and I think his explanation is probably what is going on. I also noticed that since the chain does that arcing loop, might be because of the chain is packed together in the beaker, while it just falls straight down in a line outside the beaker, but I'm not sure.
