Michael's videos have been watched over 400 million times and Vsauce's 4.5 million subscribers continues to add an astonishing 15 thousand subscribers each day. Michael lives in London where he works for Google as an in-house consultant for other creators on the platform.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Never clicked a Vsauce video expecting to get an answer to the title as much as just to learn random things. I love knowing things, I don't even know *why* I just do.

The beginning baffled me. Watch out at 0:20 - What is the best kind of cheese used to catch a bear? Made perfect sense. In Hindi, cheese means "thing" and often, we speak sentences starting with Hindi and suddenly finishing off in English. I was like, "Is he speaking to Indian audiences"?

I went through a phase where I stopped watching Vsauce videos because I watched all the videos with titles that interested me, but eventually I really that the title was mainly a general topic and hidden behind it were things I am interested in.

Tbh, animals don't ask questions due to not having good language ability, for them everything they seek is by their perception and senses, as for communication part just to fulfill some basic instincts as well as having a way to get a favourable reward, other than that they don't know how to ask questions, since most of the time they take what they sense as it is, A dog I knew became deaf, then he stopped barking and making sounds, most likely him feeling that he isn't able to bark because he can't hear it.

Everyone! Michael has been fish-hooking us all! I actually realised that because I learned a lot about phycology. Also, you and me both. I always mumble weird explanations and connections, ahhhh I love being a Nerd. Sometimes I go meta and would occasionally mumble line such as: I hope no ones listening to this, but then if your hearing this then stop creeping on me, alright, thanks.

It made me feel good that there's someone like me. I was just exactly the same as vsauce in terms of asking questions. I always am asking "why". And even the simplest things in life gives me hard time thinking or finding for answers. But sometimes it leads my brain torturing me.

5:15 I do this too. I talk to myself about anything mundane and then start explaining it. I once started explaining to myself how and why cars work and didn't take into consideration that I was on a bus and everyone just stared at me confused.

Greyshirk (29 дней назад)
4:28 Asking questions allows us to understand the world around us a bit better. Why, Because familiarizing gives us a sense of security. Why, Because we can trace it to things we know Why, Because the brain reacts on primal impulse Why, Because its working from what its evolved on Why, Because without a past you cant have a future Why, Because for some reason we see time as a linear constant Why, Because some Egyptian dude got bored back in 1500 BC Why, Because there isn't a lot to do in the sand Why, Because sand is boring Why, Because once you've made a castle and run it through your hand theres nothing else to do Why, Because its for miles Why-

i always found that colour contradiction to be an amazing idea you measure a colour to be 700nm .... and ask what colour do you see weather they were thought it was red or not you define what ever you see as red hence that specific wavelength no matter who sees what will be defined as red however the problem is what does your brain interpret .... maybe you see green but you was thought it was red by the people around you so now when ever you see green in your brain you call it red ...... but our world was created to avoid this problem by showing you a specific colour and calling it that colour everyone else does .... regardless .... maybe there is a way to determine what a brain interprets as colour by measuring where the neurons fire ? in the grand skeem of things it makes no difference .... however a non scientific way could be asking they what best describes certain emotions (avoid love cause it was defined by the whole world to be red lol) TBH im no neurologist so im not sure how the human body works ... but on the science side i can say for sure .... our standards for colours are defined by wavelengths .... if we both see 400nm then we both see violet light .. weather or not your brain interprets it differently is the question cause an eye is just a transmitter of the image come to think of it ... the incoming wavelength would produce a certain energy hence assuming that energy would remain the same for all ... then yes they see the same colour however its another assumption hahahhahaahah
