A video attempting to explain the second law of thermodynamics in simple non-mathematical terms.

Background: I made this video after hearing from creationists for the umpteenth time that evolution defies the second law of thermodynamics. This is complete and utter nonsense, evolution does not defy the second law of thermodynamics.

The second law of thermodynamics is concerned with the relationship between heat and work; this video explains this and the important points that are made by the second law, namely:
Heat always flows from a hotter body to a colder one.
Perpetual motion in a closed system is impossible.

The song is "The Scientist" by Coldplay.
