Very cool. I kept looking for the "buffalo" sentence, but was glad to see the "police" sentence instead. :)

lol @ "Earth's first fart"... Except that we're really not. Accepting the impact (asteroid or comet, depending on who's telling the story) of 65 million years ago, the amount of  ejecta that reached or exceeded escape velocity is not insignificant, and given the sheer volume, had to contain a huge number of dinosaurs (or at least pieces of dinosaurs) that had been converted to a gaseous form via incineration, thus making them a previous "fart", and who knows how many previous incidents of similar nature may have occurred before that?

Ok, not the same, but still... :D :P

That was really fun, as was the "leanback" that was mentioned in the video. :)

We all know it's flat. Held up by 4 elephants on top of a turtle.

Interesting as usual.

There are things we think we know from our perspective, there are things we know that we don't know.

What do we really know  :scratch-head:

I don't know  :D

Good vid.

The biggest problem with us as a race is that we know what we know, but we don't know what we don't know; you know?

That's what I like most about Vsauce, it can make you think.
