Because Science ...

I really just need a place to post these episodes, seemly because they're all so good.

It's guys like this that have

It's guys like this that have made me forego almost all regular TV. Pretty much my entire visual entertainment/ infotainment is now found on Youtube, with Netflix and a local cinema rounding out the gaps.

Thanks for posting these, they are a whole bunch of fun.

And I take the opposing stance - Guys like this are why I avoid YouTube.

If I wanted science I would read a text book! I don't... Because Comics!!

(actually, stuff like this can be interesting from time to time... But mainly I am not looking for real science in my entertainment.)

These are cute and a fun lark

These are cute and a fun lark :).

Personally--since it is almost certain that there is vastly more that we ("we" meaning all of human knowledge up to this point in history) don't know than we do know about, well, everything (see * below)--I find explanations of fictional superpowers that are based solely on what little we do know at this point often a bit cumbersome. I prefer to think of fantastical powers as generally beyond our current knowledge. The whole "any sufficiently advanced science" thing.

For example, he and the others who posit the quantum tunneling explanation of phasing either outsmart themselves a bit or assume that people just aren't paying close attention and will accept on authority. A close listen will show that what he describes is actually a form of teleportation. As explained by him, quantum tunneling isn't moving through space at all. You would just appear at the new location, not become insubstantial yet visible and travel through substances like a ghost. To try to explain that with quantum tunneling is a whole different story. And just because we don't currently know how to circumvent electron repulsion doesn't mean it can't be done.

But I do very much like imposing mundane real-world observable physics on all of that which is not supposed to be "super" in fiction--like the whole lava thing--because to me it makes the fictional world more intuitive and concrete and aids in suspension of disbelief. That way, at least everything doesn't behave fantastically, and so the fictional world feels more "solid" and works as a relief so that the fantastical elements stand out even more.

*Just as one example: https://www.google.com/amp/www.techrepublic.com/google-amp/article/we-dont-understand-the-universe-scientist-explains-how-science-is-failing-us/

FIGHT EVIL! (or go cause trouble so the Heroes have something to do.)

Yeah I like this guy better

Yeah I like this guy better than most guys who try to teach you science through pop culture, he has much less "See, see? Mad science doesn't exist yah idiot" about him. He understands the fantasy of superheroes even while saying that it shouldn't be possible for Spider-Man to be Spider-Man in the real world.

I'm disappointed the first video didn't address the worst lava death scene in the history of cinema:

I enjoy the videos when it's

I enjoy the videos when it's a topic I care to hear about :) Even if I don't care for the final result, some of which I think has to take into aspects that can't be accounted for sense it's a fictional universe.

Or comments like "Batman would sometimes have to avoid his rule" on that it may kill people. :p Batman trying to rescue people and failing, is not him killing them :p Trying to stop them from dying 100% is trying to rescue them :)

A not to serious review ain't

A not to serious review ain't bad, comedy really works nowadays. He seems to be funny but I guess I will have to move on and check out another channel.

Super strength and physics

Super strength and physics was explained very well as a zero range telekinesis, In other words you had to touch an object to affect it.
So you could lift a car with one hand, as telekinesis was affecting it and not the physics of your hand.

This zero range telekinesis also explained invulnerability. Bullets would bounce off your telekinetic shield, appearing to bounce off your skin - because you shield had a range if zero.

I got in a debate about oversized weapons in the comments section for that one. Was called names, even though all I did was point out the reality of the problem.

Shad from Shadiversity explains it pretty well
