Sparking grapes eh

Pretty pictures of mushrooms and time lapse videos scored to didgeridoo music, yes please.
There was an interesting bit about the fires in Australia and how certain fungi rely on the that life cycle to seed.

I don't hear any accent...never lived anywhere near Chicago. Gonna dive into his channel, I'm all about the translation of science into layspeak.
People get turned off by the highbrow.

Haha he seems to know a decent amount about it for not being a mushroom guy. Street smarts knowledge I suppose

I may have posted this on here before but revisited the video yesterday and I think they do an excellent job at telling the history of fungi and how it shaped the world we live in.
Start at the beginning when they terraformed the planet and allowed minerals to be transferred into plant life just starting vegetation role on this earth. Then fast forward to the great meteor strike that killed off most life on the planet, leaving an absolute feast for the mushrooms to spread rapidly. Some theorize fungi may be part of the reason that warm blooded mammals rose to prominence while our cold blooded ancestors went the way of the dinosaur. Since Fungi ruled the planet at that particular moment in history our warmer internal temperatures allowed us to combat many of the fungal infections by simply cooking them out. Then fast forward to those same warm blooded primates walking around collecting and eating fungal fermented fruit , and then developing a way to process the alcohol in order to survive more efficiently. Fast forward even more and you see the history of alcohol and the role that it has played in human history. With the help of Fungi we developed the ability to process alcohol before we even knew how to make it. Anyway I think its a nice little glimpse into little understood world of Fungi.
Anyway the video does a far better job of explaining it all, youtube pulled the video last night. Dailymotion it is
I would like to try me some of that wasp yeast beer

Behold the Floppotron!
This is ...different:
He's got a whole channel of covers of well-known songs played entirely on old computer equipment. Looks like it took him a minute or two to set up his rig, lol.
It seems to me that it would make a great instrument to use to make a soundtrack for marble racing (or any other project of no practical use that requires a huge investment of time for minutes of mild amusement).

Haha that is oddly satisfying
Hat's off to that guy for his effort

That guy is an interesting combination of awesome and crazy. I'm just going to stick my bare hand into this swarm of bees and grab the queen here... bonkers.

It's funny watching an adult without an allergy get in a fuss over a bee flying around them. Guess what the bee doesn't want to sting you either.
However I would not have guessed a guy could get that close without and smoke and grab the queen without getting stung like crazy, but then again I don't really know anything about bee keeping other than a great documentary on netflix called Honeyland. If your into documentaries I would bet you would probably find it interesting.
I always enjoy seeing how other people live all the way across the globe. A life so far from our digitized go go go western societies
This is real reality tv where the narrative is simply life. Not a recreated scripted attempt at manufacturing it
