    I have a cousin who’s working on his PhD in entomology, and he’s discovered a couple species and he gets to name them. There’s literally some species of moth named after my grandparents.

      NO! Imagine the 12-year comeback. I’m new, but I’m used to the voice. If he makes 4-6 videos in 12 years, it could change drastically. It wouldn’t be bad, just surprising. Although I don’t think my voice changed much between 16 and 26

    there’s actually a species of tardigrade named after yukako yamagishi’s stand love deluxe from jojo’s bizarre adventure - discovered in 2012 - because of its ‘hairy appearance’. the two researchers who discovered it said it was almost like the creature was being controlled by the stand which is how it got its name!

    Ok, this is awesome but I gotta pick a particular sequence:
    Hitler writing the thank you letter and then walking out of frame as Sam narrates "and then he went on to do Hitler things". This is crazy funny because how unpredictable the next scene could be. What exactly Sam meant by "Hitler things" is left to the viewers imagination. Mine told me it was something unprecedented and immensely funny (my brain knew what to expect from the many times it had been surprised by stuff that caused "you better not be drinking anything" fits of laughter before). So when Sam _didn't_ show the scene, he managed to do with comedy what good horror has been doing for years. He just invented the "implied joke". He tapped into a source of subconscious humor that exists somewhere in our heads, just like the well-known one for fear. He made me laugh copiously by omitting the joke!

      What is Islam? Vor 8 Tage

      @griffy ye 🔴 What Is Islam?
      🔴 Islam is not just another religion.
      🔵 It is the same message preached by Moses, Jesus and Abraham.
      🔴 Islam literally means ‘submission to God’ and it teaches us to have a direct relationship with God.
      🔵 It reminds us that since God created us, no one should be worshipped except God alone.
      🔴 It also teaches that God is nothing like a human being or like anything that we can imagine.
      🌍 The concept of God is summarized in the Quran as:
      📖 { “Say, He is God, the One. God, the Absolute. He does not give birth, nor was He born, and there is nothing like Him.”} (Quran 112:1-4) 📚
      🔴 Becoming a Muslim is not turning your back to Jesus.
      🔵 Rather it’s going back to the original teachings of Jesus and obeying him.

    There’s an ancestor of the starfish called a “basket star”. The discoverer named the two discovered ancestors “Melusinaster alissawhitegluzae” and “Melusinaster arcusinimus” both referring to the melodic metal band Arch Enemy and their current vocalist. You can probably figure which one is which.
    There’s also a protein that’s part of brain cell called Pikachurin. You can probably figure out the reference.

      @Kaleb Boren that would make sense, except _Osmosis Jones_ came out in 2001 produced by Warner Bros and Pikachurin was discovered in 2008 out of Japan. Likely, Piet Kroon and Tom Sito (the animation directors) or some animator threw in Pikachu as an Easter egg, nothing more. This theory is an attempt of retrograde lore, except A needs to be before B. B before A is simply impossible.

    So, first of all, this is an excellent example of what I tell my students, "Never let scientists name anything."
    Second, the reason there's a fly named after Beyoncé is that it has a a large abdomen, which apparently reminded the entomologist who named it of Beyoncé's butt.

    • Brian Roberts

      To share some fun animal names, I have a couple examples.
      There is a pachycephalosaur dinosaur called Dracorex hogwartius, or literally "Dragon King of Hogwarts."
      There's an entire genus of beetles called Kissimi, pronounced "Kiss me," with species names inspired by the discoverer's lovers.
      Finally, we have Bulbasaurus phylloxyron, or "Bulbous reptile leaf-razor," a dicynodont from the Late Permian period. Now officially, this name comes from the bulb-shaped bones on its snout and the sharp beak it used to cut through plant material. Unofficially, however, when asked if the name had anything to do with the Pokemon Bulbasaur and its signature move "razor leaf," the paleontologists who discovered and named it said that any similarities between the two may not be a coincidence.

    Hey, Sam! Greetings from Russia! I've been watching you for a long time, you're a cool guy) I wanted to share something. Recently I watched the movie Diva (2016) about Florence Foster Jenkins, I would like you to get acquainted with her too and make a video about her if you wish. A very shocking person, as a person who works in the field of opera and operetta music, she has sunk into my soul. With love

    Hey Sam I know the next video is probably already in the works but I would like to see a video that talks about upton sinclair’s “The Jungle” it would be hilarious to hear you talk about a book outlining the horrible conditions of immigrants and food in the late 1800s in general.
