  • does this stuff work around the penal regions of dark matter and deep space I keep wetting myself filling my pampers

  • Uni was 13 student research paper presentation...I did all the work

  • only one consciousness exists and we all share the same. whole Hindu philosophy is about this. and what I understood is it cant be explained with logic and its beyond logic.

  • i didnt understand a word

  • This is the reason capatilsime will kill us all! If it would be go after neo liberel we would bomb the city ever 10 years for the econmie

  • I agree that the best way to test a theory is by trying to falsify it. Nevertheless, the "rule" was misleading. The main problem everyone had guessing your rule was that they all initially assumed that the rule uniquely determined the next number in the sequence.

  • The hacksmith in three days: hold my beer...

  • Luck is also called "to be in the flow". People who are in the flow know that this part is a result of belief and trust in things they have no control over it. But, as you said, they usually giving back something to others as a appreciation.

  • 5:28

  • thats a Titan thats a freking titan who keeps moving forward untill its enemies are destroyed

  • Veritasium Chris Hedges Derek, good guys

  • Veritasium Richard Wolff Democracy At Work Derek, good guys

  • Oh my god...

  • We still need oled light bulbs. Cut the energy usage by at least half again.

  • The earth is spinning because it was formed out of dust that was spinning.But why was the dust spinning in the first place?

  • What if they made a time machine with this convention they might reach nowhere

  • You can do gesturing , waving, moving your hands up and down, and from side to side, how much you want. Doesn't change you, being in the wrong :-p .

  • Perfect toy punishment for cheating wife which pushes away the other male away from bed... 🤔🤨😂

  • Wat was tha running on the water in 9:56

  • Все права у первой скрипки И достаточно ума. Плазма исправляет все ошибки В несовершенствах формы вещества.

  • Wait... What if the Mars astronaut sends his "synchronized" clock back to earth? If the difference is as much as 10 minutes wouldn't they be able to spot it?

  • The real question is how many cancer cases have been caused by atomic tests?

  • Send it to the Bermuda triangle

  • 6:43 I couldn't help but smile. Because I knew. They got me.

  • at least out seeds are safe!!

  • If Hentai has thought me anything, we're all screwed once these tentacle technology becomes sentient!!

  • Wow

  • Is gravity an illusion? Seems not, if anything it seems like a different word of explaining with a lot more ease what you just spent 17 minutes explaining in a way that 90% of people would not understand. I think calling an apple falling from a tree: «gravity» is a lot more understandable for people than saying: «The earth accelerates towards the apple at 9.8m/s because of curvatures in space-time caused by the mass of earth itself» or whatever the point was. Gravity by definition is the universal force of attraction between all matter. If two objects in space get caught in eachothers gravitational field with no movement they will surely accelerate towards eachother, so what force is making them accelerate if not gravity?

  • I believe this technology will dramatically change the the global landscape for the worst.

  • Imagine seeing your moon fighting to escape the earths gravity

  • That plastic will break down and people are going to be drinking it.

  • According to different light speeds, would space dilation affect red shifting of light from distant stars differently ?

  • "What else do you think could be done with this?" DON´T ASK THIS ON TH INTERNET! WATCH OUT!

  • If one direction of light had infinite speed, would that mean that the speed limit is near infinite?

  • Uncontrolable to predict, therefore unrwliable

  • baymax?

  • Someone watched big hero 6

  • well... what could you do with it? Hostage rescue situations? I don't have too much time to explain my idea but that's an idea.. right?

  • I will never call light a "wavicle"

  • One of the best videos on youtube.

  • *insert nasty joke here*

  • Paradoxical? (it's not) pressure is not paradoxical

  • Perhaps a lot of people like rain because it produces negative ions.

  • The paradox of pressure explains why a racing bike tire is at 120 psi while an automobile tire is at 35 psi. The volume of air in a racing bike tire is about 1/4th of the volume of air in car tire.

  • Disappointed that there wasn't some 10 year old kid that would start talking about the field equations

  • *Where did the idea from this device come from?* Inventor: *Uhm* Inventor: *DEEZ NUTS!*

  • Wait till Kim kardashian finds this

  • Asking a lot of questions. The next one was “Hey Joey have you ever been in a Turkish prison?”

  • *Where did the idea from this device come from?* Inventor: *so I saw a hot girl and saw my ***** *inflating*

  • LED bulbs are a very bad example for this... most LED bulbs are also designed to last shorter and use more energy than they could, by driving less filament at higher power. Search for Philips Dubai lamps.

  • Amazing videos keep it up

  • instead of idolizing a murdering POS try talking with an actual physician like Lawrence B. Palevsky, M.D.

  • well i know one use for that robot :p

  • Imagine having four of these bad boys on your back you mess up spider...... i mean save so many lives with these

  • Great! Congratulations. You've created the first hybrid robot penis/intestine. 👍🤣

  • Looks like a pipe liner and not a robot

  • How about you sent 2 signals simultaneously 1 way, one light beam and one, let's say, sound signal. The clock on point B would receive both signal at 2 given times. From the sound signal we would calculate when both signals were sent (assuming we know the exact speed of this second signal which I assume is quite easy to do) and then calculate the time it took for the light to make the 1 way trip. Unless sound also travels at a different speed both ways, wouldnt that make the trick? Obviously the only difficult part would be to be sure both signals were sent simultaneously

  • Funny it's only dangerous in the hands of terrorists and dictators not with US military

  • What if you have 2 clocks, shooting a laser on each other to trigger the clock? Both clocks are triggered by a one way light an you can compare those results?

  • 13:21 Aliens: *"INTERNAL PROBING"*

  • Simply awesome, best video I saw on planned obsolescence ............. the narrative is on point and examples are crisp and well researched.

  • You could use this to feed wires into stupid tight spaces

  • My mind: Eat the Aerogel!

  • I still remember when i found out that a bomb can destroy a city from the encyclopedia when i was 7 yrs

  • that sand part wont probably work on wet sand

  • But why would it expand at all then if it were infinite

  • Zack Hammond is going to become founder of Hammond Robotics from Titanfall

  • Hey! I figured it out now! Alone! Great!

  • Its a balloon...hardly groundbreaking

  • No. Shorten the B distance (of the AB reflection test) by both random distances and angles. If the assumption is that light might travel instantaneously in the exact opposite direction after reflection you are no longer concerned with deciphering the speed of light but that light might have some kind of memory of whence it came. If you find varying times for different angles of reflection at different B distances (after subtracting the expected 1-way time) you know that light either has a directional memory or is semi directional in its rate of travel for some other reason. It's not a genius level thing.

  • what if you get two cameras with the exact some frame rate and start them at the same point and same time and send them apart to the measuring distance and get a light sensor and a laser like in your scenario and send a beam of light to the sensor and count the frames in-between the firing and the light sensor picking up the light this may just be wrong I don't know if time dilation works through cameras frame rate too

  • How can you measure the thing that isn't a thing? That is impossible for us to even imagine. It is that the most fastest thing that we can think of the speed of light and that is what it is. I think that the speed of light have to be coincidental with how the magnetic field is transferred.

  • He is the crisis!

  • 8:21 lol

  • Elon Musk's fleshlight 1:35

  • If The time it takes to burn a substance or deliver a given amount of joules is known. Could you use the same laser at the same distance in two different directions and simply measure the time it takes to deliver the energy to verify if indeed it’s different in different direction. May not give you the speed but if one direction is slower it should take longer to deliver the energy... maybe 😂

  • This pos buying up farmland across the country.

  • You clearly didn’t interview Bill Gates and fraudulently edited this video. Litigation imminent.
