Hm what else can I distract you with? Well there's a wacky thread in the A* forum where we ramble about our own theories of the universe, and in it I embedded a nifty video from the University of Nottingham answering questions about a lot of nutty physics and astronomy topics, including, at the beginning, a nice quick layman's description of "string theory." Also I'm in the credits at the end (under my YouTube username, smbhax) for having sent them in some questions of my own, but I dunno if they're gonna use them or not!

These "Sixty Symbols" videos are made by BBC man Brady Haran, and he makes a bunch of other series of videos with Nottingham scholars and scientists, including a series with a video for each element in the Periodic Table and a series with a video for every book in the bible--their historical background and so forth. Hours of good YouTubing to be had!
