Just came to this one after listening to 264, and the fact that Hank could answer the expansion of the universe so much better in 2020 just shows in everything we do we can improve so much. That's without his answer even changing.

I think so long as there is a study of fluid mechanics, humans would have figured planes out some way or another. maybe it would have taken a much longer time to figure out, but buoyancy can be studied and so can lift. I'm pretty sure humans would have come up with flying devices some way or another. whether or not they would end up looking like the planes we have today is debatable.

This is amazing. All this talk of stealing from each other reminds me of my childhood (I was Hank and my sisters were John but with candy)

Hank and John forgot to say “don’t @ me” while deriding grapenuts, which I think are pretty great! Are they not known as one of the better tasting healthy cereals? I’ll admit they have a freaking weird name though! It adds to the intrigue lol!
