I liked the long hair more…

tuschman168 says:

I have a follow up question: How long until such a small hole would actually completely suck (yes, I'm still using that word) all the air out of the space craft. Or let's say a space craft roughly the size of a space shuttle.

yousuf yasir says:

1:15 that drawing of lungs though

David VanderKooi says:

death butter

Richard Alley says:

Physics doesn't suck. Why? Because Science.

I kept wondering how he was writing backwards then i noticed his hair part switching sides whenever he wrote and realized they were just flipping the image.

So if we could find a way to regulate temperature and need no oxygen or something like that, we could just wander through space you say?

So nothing ever sucks? Dragonball Evolution begs to differ.

Jackie Z says:

I've got a question…

how strong would mithril be in real life? Or would it even be plausible?

Dab3stxblasassassin says:

If I can ask. what's your degree in?

Cholo Mw says:

Wait so how does pressure cause a vaccum?

Ian Trent says:

4:10 Do you feel it now Mr. Krabs?

Fusk says:

Holy **!!! that crab just…. holy crap!!!! wtf that's some scary nightmare science stuff D=

Jonathan Pinkerton says:

I get whats being said, but I don't use my lungs to breathe through a straw when I'm getting a drink. I'm pretty sure most of us suck by expanding our mouths and then swallowing the liquid a mouthful at a time. Using your lungs seems like a way to choke yourself.

James Maniac says:

Dude, if you use your lungs to suck and not your tongue then there's something wrong.

+1 for the Queen reference :P
