Vsauce’s Michael with his friend Bill (via THNKR)
I recently re-discovered Vsauce on YouTube and have been watching a lot of episodes lately. It’s nerdy good entertainment with a mix of science, philosophy, history and random things that make you go “hmmmm.”
Vsauce creator and host Michael Stevens has covered a pretty diverse range of topics including profanity, why things seem creepy, why we have two nostrils, and what it would look like to travel into a black hole.
In the episode below I learned about “dazzle paint.” It sounds like a cosmetic used by the kids on Dance Moms, but it was really a military tactic used in World War I.
And here’s one that answers that age-old question, “what if the moon was a giant disco ball?”
