    Can’t bring myself to agree with that color wheel. The colors between red and violet on the color wheel don’t actually exist in the visible spectrum. After red(or before red on the wheel) would be infrared. And after violet would be ultraviolet. Since infrared and ultraviolet are invisible to humans, there would be no visible colors between red and violet........just sayin’.

    God help us if a Krakatoa-sized eruption or bigger took place in the Ijen Caldera in general, which includes the super-acidic lake of Kawah Ijen. So many more of the inhabitants of the surrounding area would be either evacuated or doomed than if it were a much smaller eruption - just by the super-acidic waters of that lake spilling out, in addition to all the other volcanic hazards!

    There's "dancing forest" trees in Banff AB, just off highway 93, on the south side, not too far from Vista lake. I don't think it's known how the trees grew to be so bent, but what I've heard is short-term glaciation, i.e. a mass of ice on the tree when it was young. The trees are mostly pine, if I recall, so probably young-enough where we could have weather records to confirm or deny this.

    Ahh, caves! That's how I want go: trapped in a crevice tighter than _some_ birth canals, in pitch black, with the echoing drip of distant water and a pulse pounding through my temples as my soundtrack. Just the millions of tons of rock I'm squeezed between, the 72 hours between me and death, and my regrets to keep me company. Some people want to live fast, die young, and leave a handsome corpse; I want to live fast, die slow, and leave an irretrievable corpse.

    Lots of fun theories about the Richat structure and Atlantis. It is incredibly easy to find seashells, fishbone fossils, and other stuff all over the place there indicating that it was once underwater and the science is pretty conclusive that it was. Also, Plato wrote about Atlantis and the location he gives is pretty much right where the Richat structure is. He also talks about it being a city that was made of multiple circles with water around the circles and a great port. If you look at the structure there's a location that kinda looks like it would have been port. Further, very few archeological digs have been done there.

    If microbes found a way to "breathe" Iron and have it recycled which allowed them to survive then.......there is most definitely life on Jupiter, Titan, and Venus. Life existed in Movile Cave, and under other extreme conditions which reflect the atmosphere of many other planets so....why not? Does the Fermi paradox take this into account?

    Mexico is a mineralists dream they have gold silver Rubys emeralds its just the rich are so greedy ,America should talk to the Mexicans and ask them to take care of their poor or pay us for each one that comes across,A fine for poor population management, they have more valuable minerals then we do and a smaller population yet they devaluate their own money out of greed. Its the Mexican Government that creates the immigration problem,However before you go yeah slow down most immigration makes us money.

    Why is it that so many science videos have narrators/hosts whose discomfort about being on camera induces them to wave their hands about way too often, resulting in viewer disengagement because of the distraction it causes?

    the trees bent in same direction is seen other places, probably due to a more powerful than usual storm coming through while bent trees, if they are a similar age, may recall a particularly heavy snowfall; however, don't discount human intervention entirely, it's a pretty cheap way to make stronger curved beams (ribs, arches) prior to the invention of glue lamination - in Europe up until the time of iron ships, very large trees would be felled by excavating and chopping the roots in order to preserve these natural "knees" for the building of wooden ships... but those were generally oak, or at least hardwood, much stronger than pine (figure the weight of a wave 6 m tall with a 20 m base crashing against the side of a ship moving into it - that's a _lot_ of pressure) and also the curvature of each bent tree is going to be slightly different...
