    Romans 1:27 In the same way, their males also abandoned their natural sexual function toward females and burned with lust toward one another. Males committed indecent acts with males, and received within themselves the appropriate penalty for their perversion.

    From Cambridge dictionary:- "CLIMATE, noun :- the general weather conditions usually found in a particular place" "WEATHER, noun:- the conditions in the air above the earth such as wind, rain, or temperature, especially at a particular time over a particular area" Shall I define IDIOT?

  9. Ludwigia pilosa

    Mola mola is a tautonym, where the genus and species names are the same. While that is allowed under the zoological code, such names are not permitted under the code that governs plants, fungi and algae.

    Watched a documentary where a wolf eel would come up to divers it recognized a would ask to be pet. That’s right, pet with a bare hand. People think it’s because of the warmth of the hands in the 40 degree water that the eels find enjoyable.

    The blobfish is actually a normal looking fish, it just turns ugly and blobby when you take it out of it habitat ( which is deep underwater ).

  23. Tom Hedger

    It isn't used for growing lawns friend, what do you think all those cows eat that make your burgers?

  24. Levi Bazen

    I think I experienced a hear burst once, possibly not, because I live right on the ocean. It's a pretty neutral climate where I live, usually about 15° year round, maybe up to 25° in the summer, and thunderstorms are rare here too. But I remember one thunderstorm in the middle of winter where I woke up for school the next morning, the inside of the house was a normal temperature but I opened the front door to a massive burst of dry wind feeling around 30°. I checked the online forecast and it mentioned nothing abnormal, saying it was still 10° and raining. One of the most bizzare things I've seen

    so the bananas that you see in commercial stores or markets are actually GMO''s. I've seen some original unmodified bananas in the wild and they are tiny, literally tiny that its only 1/8 the size of todays GMO bananas. No surprise that people have to modify this fruit for massive consumption.

  37. Sam Rakita

    Growing up, my archaeologist dad would use the lick test to freak out his students. He would lick a piece of bone and be like "oh yeah, this is this is definitely the remains of a 30 year old female from the south of Sudan who died in childbirth. I can tell from the taste." and watch them try and figure out if he was joking or not.

  59. Heaven S

    Some of you are just like: "I fell on the floor" But me: I'm honestly used to it at this point, it happens frequently. My vision will cloud with what loks like red green and black sparkles and I just have to stand there for a few seconds and may grab onto something for those few seconds..but its really not as bad as you guys make it.

  60. MrCloudseeker

    How many people were tortured by the church due to lack of science knowledge?

    Olivia, someone has been drawing on your arms . A child, it would seem. I do hope it washes off easily. I would hate to think you would have to go through the rest of your life with those inane scribbles all over you.

  64. ShiDaFu

    You are an annoying woman.

  65. Ricardo Pesenti

    Best joke xD

    Sorry, but sex in mammals (humans are mammals) is binary, not bimodal. I know that this will hurt some people's feelings and they may have a snowflake meltdown, but it is still true. Type ‘bimodal’ into Google and look at the images. Do any of them even remotely match the distribution of sex in humans? Of course, not. It turns out that it is highly relevant how common something is to determining if science will call it ‘bimodal’ or ‘binary’. Let me quote (again) from Jerry Coyne. “Once again: Why sex is binary” ( “I also criticized the NYT article, as did psychologist Debra Soh. My own criticism concluded that sex-defined as either “male” or “female”, each of which has a correlated suite of primary and secondary sexual traits connected with (and the evolutionary result of) the production of large or small gametes-is pretty much binary, and certainly strongly bimodal, with only a very small fraction of people who don’t fit neatly in the slots. For all practical purposes, sex is a binary, and it should be, since evolution produced (in most animals) two sexes that must mate to produce offspring. If you’re neither, or an intermediate, you don’t leave offspring and you don’t leave your genes.” Let me repeat that “For all practical purposes, sex is a binary” He goes on to describe the science deniers who claim sex isn’t binary “Why, then, do people harp on the non-binary nature of sex? It’s clear: because if they see sex as a spectrum, then that supposed continuum will help eliminate discrimination against transgender people (who still, I should add, adhere to one biological sex or another) or against those rare intermediate folks who don’t fall into the sex binary. But, as Byrne points out, you don’t need to twist biology to construct a caring and inclusive morality. But have a read:” Byrne makes a deeper point. There are (apparently) no intermediate cases at all (genotypically, not phenotypically) “He concludes that yes, there are some intersex conditions, but also that, arguably, “there are no clear and uncontroversial examples of humans who are neither male nor female”. By that that he also means that there are no humans who are both male and female, though I’d think that if there are true hermaphrodites and intersexes-which there appear to be-those would qualify.” That makes (genotypical) sex a pure binary, with zero intermediate cases at all. Coyne goes on. “But it doesn’t matter. If you adhere to the gamete-based definition used by most biologists, sex is effectively binary. In his footnote #2, Byrne argues that intersex individuals have a frequency of 0.015%, or about 1 individual in 6700. That would be the number of individuals falling in the “valley” between the male and female frequency peaks, making sex almost a pure binary. And that frequency, or even the 1% touted by Fausto-Sterling, neither effaces the binary nor should have any bearing on how we treat transgender or intersex individuals.” “sex is effectively binary” I know that snowflakes tend to melt at temperatures about 0 degree (Centigrade). But sometimes the truth is just too hot for snowflakes to handle and they are doomed to melting down. But don’t worry, the Earth will still orbit the Sun even after all of the snowflakes turn into liquid water.

    Im so happy to see these squiggly bois getting a bit more attention. They're a large focus of my research in Stockholm. They're incredibly diverse but tricky to properly capture and classify unless you're a true nematode veteran. So my team and myself are currently using metagenomic (metabarcoding) techniques to get a better feel for their diversity. This way we hope these guys can tell us more about the environments they inhabit.


    I look at these fish & then I look at her.......and the fish don't look ugly anymore. Interesting.

  82. gdh1984

    I get the “exploding brain” it’s either glass shattering extremely loud, a gunshot in my ear, or the worst and for some reason the scariest... paper shuffling... I’m not all the way asleep, but out of nowhere paper will start shuffling. It sounds weird lol, but it’s scary. I have a ton of books so the only thing my mind can think of is “there’s demons or ghosts all around!!” But I can’t do anything about it because my body half asleep/half awake... sometimes, even if I open my eyes, I can STILL hear it for a minute or so until it finally stops and I realize nothing is there.

  83. William Morgan

    What an ugly buglin

    "why do people have periods" umm, I'm a man and I don't. What is wrong with using the scientifically correct term "women"? I thought this channel was called Sci(ence)Show?

    If you live in Ohio and are having issues with bed bugs, give Southeast Ohio Pest control a call. They are fantastic and got rid of an INFESTATION in one of my rentals in 1 treatment. These people had lived with the bugs for almost a year and never told me till they trashed my house and moved out. 740-209-2315

  94. slapperorange

    Im really happy you uploaded this video, given that in academia there still is a bit of a taboo about researching the topic (just compare the publications on menstrual problems versus erectile dysfunction), so I think your video helps break through that stigma we have as humans about it :)

    Because they are just dumb. They are stupid, brainless, and just want to end their lives. Don’t try interacting with them because their stupidity is very contagious. They are ONE of the worst forms of humanity.
