Description

Watch me try to calculate how tall the Berlin TV Tower is using a ruler! Berlin also being a great reminder that dividing walls are a terrible idea.

Info about the Berlin Fernsehturm TV Tower:

If you want to try this, you can check what direction the sun will be shining at any location and for any date/time:

Thank you to Gherardo for lending me a saw while I was in Berlin!

CORRECTIONS:
None yet, but I’m sure there will be. And if anyone wants to calculate my actual error bars: please do!
