I always hate when I hear "twisted ladder" to describe DNA. That's not what DNA looks like. It's a double helix.

If you take a ladder and make it do a corkscrew pattern, with both sides remaining parallel, then you have a double helix, and the shape of DNA molecules.

Not sure when this video was made I'm guessing the 1960s or 70's, very well done.

#1 You do understand you just said that you just said the same thing right? They said twisted and you said corkscrew. There is literally zero difference.

#3 I understand no such thing, because they aren't the same at all.

A double helix does not look like a twisted ladder.

Twisted ladder, which is wrong:
