Great. A cold-adapted elephant in a warming world. How in the world did that NOT occur to you? Not to mention that elephants are highly intelligent and social creatures. How will they react to a significantly different, 'off' elephant? There is so much wrong here!
Soooo... how long are we going to hear snipits of Byrd's acid trip with a can of Dr. Pepper before a full episode comes out? 😂
Bread hiccupper here! Mine is mostly with super soft bread and angel food cake. To stop them, I take a giant breath in, hold it, then slooooooooowly exhale. Usually works after the first round.
Surprised they didn't mention this was a repeat episode (they typically do). Anywho, for a dramatized version of Henrietta's discovery, go check your local theater for Silent Sky. It's an excellent play about her life and work.
This episode is asking some wild questions 🤯🤯
As someone who wants to connect with my half siblings and to be found by my bio-family, I was disheartened to hear how strongly she felt about not wanting to meet any potential family members. I know my paternal family will never become a huge part of my life and I won't magically have someone to call "dad," but I'd still love to know who they are. I'm also fascinated by which traits are nurture vs. nature.
Wait. Your pupils can get smaller just by visualizing really bright light?! 🤯 Fascinating!
This reminds me more of Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind than Black Mirror 🤨
This episode is a trip! It blows my mind thinking of all the amazing ways in which science can tell us about the universe and how it all began.
I just have to say how much I absolutely love Noam Hassenfeld's music. It's such a delightful addition to these episodes 🥰
If I had a nickel for everytime this dude said Like I could buy a tesla
That was the best forest rave music I've ever heard! 🤣
I had never considered we don't know what clouds actually looked like before we started messing with the atmosphere. So wild! Can't wait to learn what information we obtain from Whaler journals.
"There's a sense of optimism in a question. It makes you feel like we could know the answer to them. We can fill in a little bit more of the hole of our ignorance." Absolutely love this way of thinking!
didnt ruin the beauty of what was in the documentary. to deny sentient being their autonomy and individuality of self is not necessarily scientifically appropriate-but a vestige of man's viewpoint that only man is important.
Really you discovered that vitamins and minerals are useless? No literature on them? LOL! unsubscribed
Thinking of how could a soft simple shaped things can be chaotic too, and that could apply for any living form..
