The Wasp by Ogden Nash


The wasp and all his numerous family
I look upon as a major calamity. He throws open his nest with prodigality,
But I distrust his waspitality.

“Whassup?” Maybe I’m doing it wrong. “Whassup?” “Whassup” I wish I had a suit. Even like with minimal powers. Or maybe even just the suit with no powers. No.

How a Disgusting Alcohol Could Save Our Bees

How a Disgusting Alcohol Could Save Our Bees


Over the last decade, North America
has lost nearly half of all its bees. Europe has lost nearly a quarter. And when I say lost I’m not talking
about your child in a supermarket. These bees are dead. Which is a huge problem. We rely on bees for all sorts of things. Bees pollinate nearly a third
of all our crops. And I for one am not ready
for this beeless future. So here in a bar on my last day in Ethiopia,
I’ve come up with a solution to all of our problems. We’re going to get drunk. Today’s episode operates on a very simple
principle: The more we rely on an animal, the more likely it is to survive. There are more cows today than there
could ever possibly be naturally. There are more pigs. More chickens. More donkeys. More dogs. Even the silkworm thrives
because we say it does. Our ability to survive a species is long proven. And I say we prove it again. We need bees. They’re more than just honey,
they’re pollination. They’re a major part of the ecological cycle. Losing them is losing more than
we’re bargaining for. You may not be incredibly keen on insects,
but we need them to keep eating fruit. And fruit’s pretty good,
so I say we keep them. And I’m sure you do too. You seem reasonable. The problem is that nobody really knows
what to do about these things. How do you save bees from their existentialist futures
if you can’t even save yourself from yours? But don’t worry, I have a plan. We need to socially engineer the next generation
of ironic alcoholics. And I’ve found the perfect drink for them. It’s called tej. It tastes like rubbing alcohol. They’re going to hate it. Tej is the generic name for a range of
traditional Ethiopian spirits made from the sugars of wild honey. Over hundreds, if not thousands of years,
brewers have perfected the art of producing alcohol from a little wax, a little water,
and a twig from a local tree. They call it honey wine. Which makes it sound so innocent. Ooh, a mix of honey and water, you think. How summery. But in reality, it’s diesel fuel. You could drive a truck on this stuff. If you go to a true tavern and order a glass
of tej, you’re getting something with food colouring just
so it looks orange. Because they’ve definitely fermented
every inch of that honey. The only sweet thing you’re going to feel
is when you get it back out of you. People say it tastes better
if you lower the alcohol content, but I’m going to have to take their word for it. Because although we’ve met dozens of people
drinking it in Ethiopia, I’ve yet to meet anyone who’s asked for it to come weaker. Even in countries with overwhelming religious
pressure, people flock to alcohol. Regardless of the taste. And not just us in the modern day, either. Throughout all history. Drinking is a string through time
as far back as the eye can see. In Axum, the civilization at the dawn of
Ethiopian history, they brewed tej. Like coffee, like chat, for as long as
it’s been here, it’s been popular. And when tej is popular,
beekeeping is popular. Ethiopia has the most apiaries of
any nation on the continent. And these are not the technologically
supported hives of the West. Most local apiaries still rely on an ancient
system that uses little more than wood and cloth. Nothing is standardized and yields
are incredibly low. For any honey brewed in Ethiopia, there’s
an 80% chance it ends up in a tej bottle. This is just the average guy trying
to brew some drinks. To make a little money selling to the bar. Most everywhere on earth, cheap alcohol
is a strong driving force. It’s not different when that alcohol
comes from honey. Over the course of thousands of years, the people
of this region have become socially conditioned to associate bees with their desire for alcohol. They’ve safeguarded the future of their colonies
by attaching them to the future of their stupor. It’s obviously unintentional,
but I still think it’s genius. The ends justified the bees. Certainly, something to learn from. We’re all drinking alcohol anyway. So why not save our apples
while we’re at it? We should be spreading the message that
a good environmentalist walks their streets convincing their neighbours to drink tej. And I think it’s going to work. Because even though tej kind of tastes like someone dropped a single splenda into a tall glass
of furniture polish, it does have its strengths. For example, they’ve really
mastered the look. The serve it in a glass called a berele,
which is objectively awesome to use. Okay, sure. You pour a bit on yourself,
but that’s fine. It looks like something Whoopie Goldberg
would serve you in the bar on Star Trek. And on top of that, it has a very
distinct colour. If someone sets down a mad scientist’s glass
in front of you full of an orange frothy liquid, you’d be pretty certain something
interesting was about to happen. It kind of sells itself. The real trick is keeping people
hooked after they try it. It kind of tastes like what you’d expect those silica gel
caps to taste like if you broke them open and mixed them into some old orange paint. But someone out there is going to want it. And since it isn’t available,
they’re going to have to brew it. Soon, a nation of ironic alcoholics are going
to be watching our bee situation like hawks. They’ll start blogs,
they’ll create brewmaster associations, and eventually once the food network catches wind
and it spreads to the average dude,
we’ll be back in beesness. Now, for those of you still taking this seriously,
obviously I don’t expect tej to take the world by storm. It’s just a metaphor for how we choose
what’s important to protect. But the reality is that our insects are dying. Not just our bees. It’s not a problem we can choose to ignore. We genuinely need them. And all joking aside, we should be doing
something about it. We need a reason for average people
to care without prompting. Tej is just a symbol for that care. In Ethiopia today, there are millions of people
who are worried about their hives. But it’s not because they’re environmentalists. It’s not because they’re world conscious. They’re just doing it so they can get drunk. And honestly, to me,
that’s a pretty sweet deal. This is Rare Earth. Aah, every time. You should be way more leaned back.
Yeah. Good stuff.

So we’re saving the galaxy again? Yup! WOOOOO HOOOOO *dances poorly* Oh god… I wish I have was better at longboarding… Something about wearing a mask that makes it so much more claustrophobic… I really wish they had brakes… Why can’t longboards have brakes? Max Speed 70 km/h There’s a shopping cart Ian! “oooh shopping cart…” Those are terribly unstable, there’s no way of steering them. you can steer by like dragging the wheels oh I didn’t know that… “don’t do it man!” “It was in that moment, the Hacksmith knew he had messed up.” Oh gosh, he wiped out! Oh shoot, oh that was a bad one oh that was really bad one! oh gosh I hope he’s ok I told him not to you guys heard me right you guys heard me I said I told him not to! *painful moan* oh God… Ow, my shoulder! Get me out of the backpack please! ahhhhh… this is jackass. Did you get that? “I was a little behind you, but yeah” *Continues to moan in agony* *POP!* Oh, it just… popped back in place! “Was it actually just dislocated?” I think so… You alright bro? I just dislocated my shoulder… I felt it pop back into place! it feels better now… still very painful!
“jeeze…” It seemed so easy and then… I lost control. That really hurt guys, I think this is actually the most i’ve been injured in a Hacksmith’s video so far, um, so I guess I should be grateful that my shoulder popped back into the socket but anyways we hope you guys enjoyed that video we were hoping to do a few more tests but that accident kind of threw a wrench in the gears and actually next week Ian’s gonna have to stand in for me for the big Batman grappling hook gun test because there’s no way I’m hanging on to a grappling hook gun with this gimped arm Anyways thanks for watching it if you guys haven’t subscribed yet please do so it would make dislocating my shoulder a little bit better because what we do is we try and entertain you guys and we hope you guys appreciate that and enjoy the content yeah okay there we go that’s good got it pull it down this way. *groan* Now even though sometimes I get hurt I love doing this I quit my job to focus on youtube full time and I’d love to be able to continue doing this full-time so if you guys wanna help support us on patreon and become a patron even in a dollar a month goes a huge way in supporting the channel and allowing us to continue making awesome content for you guys! Also big thank you to Xcoser for sending us a Star-Lord mask and LeatherMadness for leather jacket there are links and discount codes in the description below

Robot-ants “Tribots”  jump, communicate  and work together as a Team

Robot-ants “Tribots” jump, communicate and work together as a Team


A team of EPFL researchers has developed tiny
10-gram robots that are inspired by ants: they can communicate with each other, assign
roles among themselves and complete complex tasks together. These reconfigurable robots are simple in
structure, yet they can jump and crawl to explore uneven surfaces. The researchers have just published their
work in Nature. Individually, ants have only so much strength
and intelligence. However, as a colony, they can use complex
strategies to complete sophisticated tasks and evade larger predators. At EPFL, robotics researchers have reproduced
this phenomenon, developing tiny robots that display minimal physical intelligence on an
individual level but that are able to communicate and act collectively. Despite being simple in design and weighing
only 10 grams, each robot has multiple locomotion modes to navigate any type of surface. Collectively, they can quickly detect and
overcome obstacles and move objects much larger and heavier than themselves. These three-legged, T-shaped origami robots
are called Tribots. They can be assembled in only a few minutes
by folding a stack of thin, multi-material sheets, making them suitable for mass production. Completely autonomous and untethered, Tribots
are equipped with infrared and proximity sensors for detection and communication purposes. They could accommodate even more sensors depending
on the application. In practical situations, such as an emergency
search mission, Tribots could be deployed en masse. They could locate a target quickly over a
large surface without relying on GPS or visual feedback.

Do you use PARKSIDE accessories with a KARCHER? thank you to indicate the model / year in comment of the video, thank you Can we use PARKSIDE accessories with a KARCHER? hello, we’ll see if we can use PARKSIDE accessories with a KARCHER pressure washer with the KARCHER K4 FULL CONTROL when you buy a PARKSIDE accessory, usually there is an adapter included (for KARCHER or KARCHER compatible) just put the adapter I can not insert it into this gun KARCHER K4 FULL CONTROL can be because it is the FULL CONTROL version? (we can not insert it completely) I hope that PARKSIDE will modify its adapter in the future I found a trick to put the adapter (it is necessary to remove the ring of tightening, for a correct maintenance) it is inserted now (problem is lost in stability), then we insert its tool PARKSIDE As I removed the clamping element, it is less stable (it moves), we will avoid this method and if we reduced the clamping ring? 🙂 I will cut at your own risk, be careful, (reducing from 3 to 4 millimeters is enough in my opinion) I’m testing now I can put it on and tighten with a PARKSIDE accessory, the FULL CONTROL indicator does not work (it indicates mix instead of HARD) cutting can be used the clamping ring and maintain properly for those who would like to do like me: I have reduced by 9 millimeters, but reducing from 3 to 4 millimeters is enough a new adapter, just reduce by 3 millimeters in my opinion in my opinion it can be done with a belt sander also (we will be right) what do you think? in summary, to be able to use
parkside accessories with a KARCHER pressure washer Normally, the adapter should work, if you can not insert it, or remove the clamping ring (not recommended because it moves) otherwise you have to reduce the clamping ring from 3 to 4 millimeters (we can put it easily) I think that the only PARKSIDE accessory that is not compatible KARCHER is the telescopic lance if the adapter is not included with your PARKSIDE accessory, I put it in description of the video important before buying a PARKSIDE tool, check the maximum working pressure this accessory is 110 BAR MAX, your karcher must not exceed 110 BAR (it is not compatible with the K5 and K7) Thanks and see you soon ++
