Found this channel on YouTube and I like it.

I think they do a video per week so there's loads to go through. This is the main link but feel free to post direct links to any you like.

The main channel is one video per week. This weeks is about music and is very interesting (VI?)



I've linked direct in case youtube gets confused with my sign in or you don't have one.

Another RI/VI installment of Vsauce.



I use the wet/dry rule. If it's wet, throw it away. If dry, eat it. But hey, what's your immune system for anyway?

I really liking these.

If I drop a biscuit I will pick it up quick and eat it, most other things I bin.

I also use the wet-dry rule, but I also incorporate the 5 second rule to the dry rule  :P

That which doesn't kill you, makes you stronger, so unless it's apple sauce or gravy, I'll snap it up and gobble it down.

I've always hated that cliché.
My answer is: my uncle had TB as a child and had most of one lung removed. Didn't kill him or make him stronger.

Trust me, Snowy, I fully understand that fact, as the accident has left me far weaker than I was before. In the previous context, though, it was meant as a joke, and as such, wasn't to be taken seriously. :)

For sure Dave. My mild offence was at the cliché not your use of it.

As opposed to "We'll head them off at the pass" which I don't hate but Hedley Lamarr does.
