  • Always a pleasure to watch your work! You're doing just amazing!

  • BTW, I think you've attracted a whole new demographic with the spit facts you gave! Good job!

  • The memes of you are friggin hilarious! While on the subject, I think people would be interested in a video about the cause and effect of memes and the psychology behind why some gain traction and others don't. Maybe using a population exposure algorithm similar to that of a virus??

  • I have asked everyone this question, please will you make a video covering this? I'm desperate!!!!! A fly is flying around in a car, the fly never touches any surface in the car only fly’s around in the air inside the car. The car accelerates. does the fly slam in to the rear window. or does the fly continue to fly uninterrupted? If this is the case does the fly have to fly at the same speed at the car?

  • Hi Michele! Dave here! I have to make a video presentation of a scientific phenomena and I am here to ask if I could use the 3D models that you used in your last video?

  • Could Vsauce please make a video about how a plane propeller and wing work?

  • Hey, when stars collapse into black holes - how do they go from some mass to infinite mass? if the density is infinite, surely the gravity must reach infinity by incremental increase?

    • not infinite mass, but you know, infinite - density? or how does it acquire the point of singularity?

  • Hi Vsauce, just wanted to mention that youtube is deleting subscribers for no reason, i had Vsauce subscription before, and i notice lot of others subscriptions was deleted too by youtube for no reason, this is a really bad behaivior. Now i'm subscribed again. Greetings.

  • Please do a video about antigravity maybe, im sure it has something to do with magic number

  • please do a video about magic number 54.7356 its the angle where you viewed from an hypercube and it looks like a hexagon its the arctan squareroot of 2 and it has something to do with nuclear stuff as well im not sure about it, but i feel like this number has something to do with antigravity (sounds crazy) I think you have the power to dive deep inside so please do a video about it!!! Thanks

  • Vsauce, what do you opine concerning the FLAT EARTH THEORY?

  • Could you do a video about the etymology of ginger and how it became a slang word for redheads. Thanks Anna

  • you're frigin smart

  • With the changes to DE-tv, how will this channel stay relevant when they only consider watch time and number of video's put out?

  • I'm not subbed to you, please stop having your videos pop up in my subscription feed. It's very annoying.

  • Question. What does a mirror look like when no one is looking? Is it even a mirror? We see a reflection based on our angle, but if we're not there, what does it actually look like?

  • You scare me.

  • Lies Lies Lies Fake Fake Fake

  • can you gues that what will happen when 10g of anti mater will be found by humans???????

  • Can you do an episode on wind

  • How fast is the speed of thought?

  • Where are you man ? waiting eagerly for your next video.

  • Hello! Vsauce. I am a Hong Konger, i like your videos! Recently, you had talked about the mars, i raised a question. Is the radio signal able to transmitted messages faster than speed of light? Just like the movie, Starwars the clone wars it simultaneously send out the order 66 to kill all jedi across the galaxy including the outer rim? i mean it is way too more easy to do it compared with the hyperspace technologies which need to accelerate exceed the speed of light with mass, right? Thank you for your times! (it may be a little bit dumb and sorry for my poor englishXD)

  • Why don't make a video about murphy's law? :)

    • I think he has done one, not sure which...

  • Hey Vsauce, I have a question which has been bugging for the past hour in the shower: can ideas ever get copyrighted? Can one get sued for implementing someone else's idea in which he gains total or part of the profit? Let me try to illustrate what I mean. Imagine, one day you wake up with a million dollar idea for an app. You have thought through its feasibility and manageability and it all sounds perfect but you have only one problem - you do not know how to make an app. Alright. No big deal. You'll solve this problem and outsource this seemingly challenging and difficult task to an app developer. Then after meeting up with this app developer and sharing with him what you want the app to do, what features should exist and perhaps how the app will work, he comes up with a reason and rejects the job offer. However, a few months pass by and you found out that the app maker has literally taken your idea, your vision and turned it into reality. The app you envisioned has been created by this man himself and he is now earning big bucks from the app he created and from the idea he thought of himself, or at least that is what he claims. Now, this brings me back to the main gist of my question. To what extent, if any, can ideas be copied? Are there any set boundaries to which one can take someone else's abstract, intangible idea and pass it off as their original work? Is there anything wrong to taking someone else's idea and making it yours and then a reality? After all, you did the hard work. Ultimately, can ideas be subjected to the jurisdiction of the state and trialed for plagiarism? It would be very intriguing to me and I'm sure many others as well if you could do a video regarding this topic. I have been a fan of Vsauce, Vsauce2 and Vsauce3 for quite a while now and I would say that all of you have put in an enormous amount of effort in creating these videos and it shows in the content that you upload. You guys are doing great, and have done great so far, and I wish you all the best for the future. Keep doing what you enjoy, and as always, thanks for reading ;)

  • You guys post wayyyyyyyyyyy too infrequently now. I think you were the first channel I subscribed to. I don't see the point anymore though, the content is so infrequent. It's like you all assume you don't have to do anything anymore because you all got famous. Fame doesn't last. Do something new guys, or get out of the spotlight.

  • can you make a video on Matrix Universe

  • Hey Michael, I have an interesting question that may or may not catch your interest. Can you eat an alien? Of course, currently we don't know of any extraterrestrial life forms right now, but let's assume there were. Us humans and other heterotrophs must survive by eating other life forms. Those life forms we eat are made of individual cells, which in turn is made of lipids, carbohydrates, proteins and nucleic acids as well as other organic or inorganic chemicals and trace elements suspended in a bubble of water kept together by a phospholipid bilayer. All the same carbon-based stuff we are made of and that makes sense, we eat those things because they have the same stuff that our body is made of so we can use what we eat to build our bodies or break it down for releasing the energy that keeps our bodies running. However, what would happen when you eat something alien, that may not be made of lipids, proteins, carbohydrates and it's genetics may or may not be based on nucleic acid? Would it even be carbon based? Would it use water as a solvent for it's chemicals or something else? What are the possibilities of what alien life is made off?

  • Ok sounds like a stupid but when u break it down can u answer.... What's the difference between electricity and fire

  • A video on the science of gut feelings please.

  • @Vsauce If the live show does well enough will you and Adam consider coming to Australia

  • Hi, If you like science, nature and beautiful videos come to my new channel called MIKOSKOPIA. Please share with me your ideas and suggestions for improving the channel and making awesome new videos :). Of course thank you Vsauce for your amazing videos. Miko

  • i want you to come Egypt if it possible............

  • I have a question. If a person is born with visibility in only one eye, will that person be able to have depth perception? Also, if a person loses visibility in one eye during the course of his/her life, how does that person's brain handle depth information? Will that person lose depth perception or will brain somehow handle it based on previous memories?

  • Can you do a video on the Mandela Effect? Not so much the conspiracy effect but the psychological confabulation of memories, such as entire generations of people remembering the famous lines of "Mirror, mirror on the wall" from Snow White, but the actual line is "Magic mirror on the wall", or "No, I am your father" being the line Darth Vader says yet everyone remembers it as Luke, I am your father"

  • Why the temperature can't go below -273.15 Celsius?

  • Can you please explain einstein's theory of relativity.......


  • Michael, you must have a bunch of random facts that you stumbled upon during your research. Would you make a video specifically about these?

  • hey michael do you reckon you could do a video on size as in like "nothingness" that something cannot be divided into nothingness, like atoms being divided infinitely

  • congratulations on getting this far and keeping things interesting ive been a sub before you broke a million nice job Vsauce gang

  • Just throwing this out there. The disco ball moon made this come to mind for some reason. I can't find a single other video about it and it'd be a pretty neat "What if?" video. What if all of the worlds buildings were 1 story high? Not accounting for subterranean structures like fallout shelters, bunkers, and stuff like that.

  • Maybe this is the stupid question but: Will we ever be able to make a detailed and accurate 3D map of our galaxy considering that all its stars and planets are moving around? Does it mean it would have to be updated after some periods of time? (I know this movement is really insignificant in vastness of universe but lets assume that the map should be really accurate)

  • Vsauce do "Why do we get dizzy?"

    • that's not a bad idea, but relatively simple so I doubt he'd manae to get much info/time for a vid out of it :)

  • Hey Michael, I don't know if you read these... but if you do, thank you for all of the great vids. My kid thinks you are a superhero. I do too.

  • Why do we love music? (i mean they are just waves, but we can enjoy them somehow)

  • Whats the fuss. No offence I love V sause and even subscribe, however there is an apparent lack of dedication. Clearly. Before you say it, his content is amazing but there are other channels that post amazing content too and more regularly for example Film theory/ game theory with MatPat. If you guys are interested with theories and science go check his channel out its fantastic.

  • What gives us taste? If taste is just information why does my brain choose certain things to like? Growing up as a child how to my tastebuds change and come to be? Is it possible for taste buds to die? Who started milking cows and drinking it?

  • i was randomly unsubbed !

  • I think that you and Mat Pat From Game Theory and Film Theory. Should make a video together. You have channels that seem very unrelated. Yet I recently watched your Ted talk about questions and found that you guys do the same thing Just for mostly different audiences. If they were completely different I would never be able to interest you in this wonderful opportunity.

  • Vsauce, Have you answered the question "how far can light travel"? I would love to see a video about that.

  • I was watching your space straw video. One question Michael.. what if all the animals on earth inhaled at the same time? Would it cause any change? Just curious. Thanks :)

  • HOW COULD YOU GET MARRIED JFC ............. TALKIING ABOUT INTELLIGENCE (..fuck me, another one goes straight up a twat)

  • i learned all from this maybe a little

  • what does one heat joule look like or feels like ؟

  • please make a video about why we should lick our wounds.

  • Are there matters in other dimensions? Is it physically possible that there are living beings in other 8 dimensions?

  • Hi Vsauce. Is there any chance you could make a video about Max Tegmark's Mathematical Universe Hypothesis?... (I hope they read some of these.)

  • How do we wind and air currents on our planet?

  • "go to the sauce". it has a cool ring to it

  • When Michael plays in a Filthy Frank video xD

  • I have a curious question. Is there such a thing as a map of the roundness of the earth? I mean: How round is it? Are there areas that are more flat? Places where the horizon would be further from you at sea level than say other more roundish areas?

  • ich bin batman

  • Heyyy Michael, Vsauce here. Have you heard of the Mandela effect? you should consider doing an episode about it. What it is, what could cause it or what in our brains is happening to convince us that things are ... different..but what is different?

  • Hey Vsauce , you know how time moves slower the closer you get to the speed of light ? . So what if you had two people one on planet earth, the other orbiting a blackhole approaching the speed of light. Lets just say a video link could have been established between the two persons with minimal delay.. Explain to me what will happen here, with respect to the aging of both individuals . cause if the theory is correct the person on earth is suppose to age alot faster than the person orbiting the at or close to the speed of light .. how do you think a conversion between both might even be like ?. and as always thanks for listening

  • he makes me feel dumb

  • You should do a video on the Mandela Effect. Would love to hear your take on it.

  • This is where snuff sauce meme came from lol

  • Be careful to this Michael: What second is it, in time? Do we have a method to understand the particular number of any given bit of time on the timeline?

  • Such a great channel. The production and content quality is always top notch. Always delivers interesting stuff instead of relying on click baits!

  • Is there a way to manage a single time keeping for the entire solar system. A single solar system calendar and or clock?

  • What's the width, height and length of a black hole?

  • I dont know which channel would feature this but there are a lot of scenes in Independence Day: Resurgence that would be interesting to cover. for example, could a ship of that size really land on earth? what would the impact be and how would it affect the earth? could you please do a ideo on the science behind this?

  • Hay Vsauce! Can you explain us what will happen when the earth's orbit changed?

  • Hi Michael, can i download background musics that you used in your videos?

  • whatever you do, don't get one of their stupid curiosity boxes. They are illegally using a trademarked name, and selling gimicky childish toys as if it were some sort of eye-opening scientific treasure box. Just junk to quickly end up in landfill. I made the mistake of buying one because I like their videos, but it is just trash. Now I don't even like their videos.

  • what happens if we were to look directly at ourselves in a giant mirror 500 light years away?

  • Great videos Vsauce! Can you make video about the Hollow Earth Theory?

  • request: Earths sub crust compilation. Theory vs fact and why we know that earth is magma and solid core. - I wonder if there is "solid" proof?

  • So has anyone else seen Magnificent Century? It's on Netflix right now, and seriously, the guy playing Sultan Süleyman the Magnificent looks just like Michael.

  • Hey Michael, I would love to see a video from you about the theorie from Erik Verlinde published yesterday!

  • Vsauce can you or anyone please tell me the name of that godly music that plays at 2:25 in the video "How Earth Moves".

  • Hey Vsauce! Crippling depression here.

    • while that is a good outlook im just sad no one got the reference

    • The point of living is to harness all things in your life to bring yourself happiness as long as possible until you're body stops, because once it stops that's IT man, that's the only level you get. One life dude, make sure you force it into something awesome that you enjoy. Don't fucking listen to the bullshit anymore, just worry about making yourself and others happy and life will be a blast.

    • You ever wonder what is the point......... of living? ;~;

  • I have seen some videos presenting the ratio 80-20 as a general guiding principle in a lot of things. But I can't help being puzzled and think that maybe this is just a bunch of people not willing to go to explain the "full monty" the golden ratio: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_ratio - Would it be interesting to sum up on this somehow?

  • I'm kind of afraid to post this here, but I'm curious, since we know the universe is expanding, and I've seen analogies of actual space-time stretching like a balloon or bubble, how do we know that the universe isn't more like a torus which expands from a super dense center and then loops back around to refeed itself, essentially regenerating indefinitely? A constant cycle of ejection, respooling, and ejection with some sort of unknown constant at the center. I'm not even close to an astronomer or scientist, so I have no idea if what I wrote even makes sense or even accurately describes what I'm thinking, but it's an image I have in my head when I read about the Hubble constant and redshifting, etc.

  • Hay Michael. How do you think our technology will evolve based on what is happening now?

  • Can please speak about Anunnaki & Sumerians.

  • @Vsauce Micheal, You must have been overwhelmed at the opportunity to interview Sir David Attenborough. At 44 years old Sir David Attenborough has been my main influence in my education of Nature all my life, as from a young age I fell in love with the subject due to his delivery. The questions you put to him were truly well thought, out as were your further explanations. I would however like to especially congratulate you on your Introduction and conclusion. Your Introduction in particular was beautiful and truly filled me with emotion. Thank you for sharing such a well crafted video, and so beautifully thought out. Peace and Love.

  • I HAVE A QUESTION okay so if you look at a fan and each wing thing is a different color your eyes could see pretty well each wing but if you look at the fan with a camera the wings will blend and the colors would too itd look more like a rainbow SO what would going nearly the speed of light look like through a camera would it be any different? any distortion? or would it be exactly the same as being there yourself?

  • Have you ever wondered how the seasons were explained in the Geocentric model? Like, the difference in declination of the Sun and other stars, foe example in the summer the sun appears to rise "higher" at noon than in the winter in Northern hemisphere. Was the whole Universe 'wobbling' at 22-24 degrees (ecliptic) angle annually around the supposed center of the Universe, the Earth?

  • Michael, please do one on 'why do we space-out?' ! You know, when you 'space-out'.

  • Plz make a vid on how the universe will behave if a physical const is slightly modified

  • Plz make something on how would universe behave if value of some physical constant is slightly modified

  • soooo, as others pointed out - when CAN we watch another (new) episode? :) Good stuff you guys are doing here..

  • Help, it's been almost a year ad I'm still talking to spirtes!

  • You should do a video on why some people can sing phenomenally and some people can't sing to save their life! It would be interesting to learn about the similar yet different structures of vocal chords which give countless unique voices.

  • Vsauce i have asked this question on Veritasium but i thought i will ask it here you once said that molecules in an object can't go any faster then the speed of sound if so then how can we break the sound barrier

  • Ordered the Inaugural box at 1am a couple days ago. I honestly wasn't sure if I would regret it the next day because the Canadian dollar is down, but I don't at all. Keep up the good work, all of you.

  • Just thought of an interesting topic to cover. What would the world look like if sight didn't exist? Excuse the pun. I mean how would the world's technology and inventions be different if they were designed around a 4 "sensed" parallel universe?

  • Vsauce knows The remedyChannel, ccchhhhhiiiiiiiiiiiii Is Vsause Portuguese?????
