I am just asking whether you find this explanation sufficient, or not, that's a one word response you just avoided :-P.

Wow, still no answer... So, let me try for myself.

The video quite nicely explains the pattern of waves and shows the difference between an expected and actual behavior of particles, but ends at adding sensors when particles start behaving as expected.

The thing is that the slit experiment continued, the sensors were switched off and the wave pattern formed again. Then someone decided to switch on the sensors, but don't log the information from them, interference pattern was still there.

What exactly are you asking for opinions on, Akenu?

The original video shows a fairly standard explanation for the observer effect in double slit experiments.

Mastery does not occur when you've performed a feat once or twice. Instead, it comes after years of training, when you realize that you no longer notice when you're performing a feat which used to require so much effort. Even walking takes years of training for a human: why not everything else?

I am asking whether the video is a good enough source to put on my blog or whether I should avoid it for being too pseudo scientific.

For what purpose? Trying to connect quantum anything to magic is going to be psudeo-scientific.

Nope, the exact opposite.

In that case, it's a bit long winded and seems to be geared towards a teenage audience.

I only watched the first few minutes of the second video, with the bowling, but from that I'd say that the second one is better.
