The famous Banach-Tarski paradox, now in real life. Watch out as oranges multiply to the power of two. And don't forget to look it up on wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banach%E2%80%93Tarski_paradox

The problem is that if one doesn't know the paradox, this looks like just showing a simple exponential growth.

Yea, the Danish students didn't illustrate the key paradox-concept based on "stretching" an "infinitely dense" continuum. However, the entertainment value of the video made me look it up, so I guess the video mission is accomplished. Also, the kids are obviously having a lot of fun and I believe such videos can help attract new math/science students.
