An Evening With Kevin Smith - Star Wars Celebration VI

Here the director/writer Kevin Smith tells a couple of really sweet stories, one from 5 to 7:30 and the other from 11 to 18 minutes.  Much strong language. 


A couple of years later he tells this wonderful story.   I can't believe how crude he is.

The 7 Smartest Animals In The World | Answers With Joe

The long thought figure of 100 billion neurons for humans has been disproven.  The correct number is 86 billion.  Dogs have 2.25. billion.  Cats have 0.75 billion.  I think that it is safe to say that dogs exhibit more behaviors than cats, but cats are brilliant at being cats.  Ants only have 7 thousand.  The house fly has 100 thousand, bees have 960 thousand, while cockroaches and praying mantises have 1 million.

2014 Personality Lecture 06: Carl Jung

I can't seem to get enough of Jordan Peterson. I didn't have time to watch the whole thing, which I might do later.  However, at 51 minutes he gives a very interesting analysis of "The Lion King."

How Large is the Universe? Bigger than you can Imagine?

The universe that we can see is so large that it might as well be infinite. Our little solar system is like a speck of dust by comparison. That part of the universe that we can't see may actually be infinite, but we might never know.
