What is Science Without the Scientist?

The profound question of this title is not answered in these videos.

4 Animals That Don’t Have Resident Gut Microbiomes
Mar 29, 2020

We humans couldn’t live without our gut microbes, but not all animals rely on microscopic digestive communities like we do. And understanding why these animals ditched their microbial partners can teach us a lot about the costs and benefits of making evolutionary friends. Hosted by: Michael Aranda

Here’s the Other People’s Videos featured one year ago.

It’s Saturday Night at the Video Trough

Let’s start with something everyone can enjoy
unless you hate dancing and dogs.

Liz Wheeler’s unearthing of buried news. Always odd to hear about what “mainstream media” won’t tell me, since I so rarely see MSM except in mocking video clips online.

Mark Dice on the Crazy Green Deal

Amazing Lucas: Next Up: Separate Drinking Fountains?
Lucas goes after the “Black Press Only” event in Georgia.
Have to wonder: Paper bag test?

Europe Since the 1300s Course
Well, I haven’t been following the Crash Courses, and I haven’t seen Hank Green’s brother for a long time. Nice thing about Hank and the science shows is, except when they wander into PC climate and other ideas, they’re apolitical, as science should be. John’s inclinations are always showing.  But this is still a good 6-minute overview. Even if I never watch the rest of the series.

Pulsars and Superbugs
Here’s brother Hank with the Science news. Crazy space stuff and sanitary metal. Isn’t science amazing?

At first here on Other People’s Videos, each post, usually one per day, would have one YouTube playlist, with all the videos. By the end of March, last year, I had shifted format to each post carrying, not a playlist, but a day’s worth of videos. That was not an improvement. Later, I shifted to the current format.

One year ago today included this:

It’s Like the 1950s All Over Again

Godzilla becomes Puff the Magic Dragon

When Civilizations Fall Apart – A disturbing report from South Africa
Video is no longer available. Wish I’d blogged more info about this now-purged report.

Chuck Woolery: Jim Carry — The Mask Became Too Tight

Mark Dice charts the Media Trajectory

Conservative Twins on Ilham Omar on the Border
Language warning of course.

Remember this guy? John Brennan Supercut

SciShow Gets Trippy
Wow. Brains grow all through life.
Another  “everything they thought was wrong” discovery.
Science reveals that tripping is becoming overly analytical.
Who knew?
Have you ever really, really looked at your thumbnail, maaan?
I mean, it’s like all hard and has these lines and colors.
Wow. Why don’t we have claws instead? Farr ooouttt…

Irish’s Weird New York List
This was silly fun. New Yorkers will proudly give you directions to show off their knowledge of New York. A revelation for Dianne.

Flexible Mechanisms

This is lively presentation of a dry but intriguing subject.
I like the professor’s enthusiasm for his wild creations.
