STUNG by a VELVET ANT!

STUNG by a VELVET ANT!


– I’m Coyote Peterson. Now you’ve seen me
stung by harvester ants, fire ants, and scorpions. But today, I’m moving a rung up on the insect sting pain index and I’m going to be
stung by the cow killer. I have a feeling that
this one is going to hurt. Oh boy. (dramatic music) (yelling) (dramatic music) There’s no question about it, the Wild West is
rough and rugged. And whether you’re talking
about the rocky terrain laced with spine-covered plants, or its animals, most of which are armed with
fags and stingers, Arizona Sonoran Desert is an
adventure-lover’s playground. Sure, we all have our
fears of being bitten by a rattlesnake when
venturing off trail, or in my case, having a
giant desert centipede run up my pant leg. But in actuality the good news is that each and every
one of these creatures does its best to avoid
human interaction. However, sometimes you
have an accidental run-in, and when you do, a bite or
sting can be incredibly painful. Yeah, he got me, he bit me? – [Mark] Are you sure? – [Coyote] Yeah, he
definitely bit me. When it comes to my line of work the goal is to
have an interaction so that I can show you the
effects of these encounters. This way we can all
learn why it’s important to be in tune with
our surroundings and
why it’s always best to admire animals
from a safe distance. Velvet ant, velvet ant! – [Mark] Got one? – Yeah, yeah, he’s right there on the other side of that log. I get my pack off. Yes! Hold on, no, he’s
underneath the log. I just started to tip
it, I saw he ran back, hold on a second. – [Mark] I saw him. – [Coyote] Did you see it? – [Mark] He ducked — again. (dramatic music) – [Coyote] There
it is, there it is. – [Mark] Get ‘im, get
‘im, don’t lose ‘im. – Ah! Yes, yes, look at that! – [Mark] Whoo! (laughing) – Oh, he almost got into
the crevice of that log. Wow, that is a
good sized one too. Ah, but we got our
velvet ant, there it is. Okay, cool, well
tomorrow morning I’m gonna get stung by
that little ornery bugger. Cool. The velvet ant, which
is actually a species of ground wasp and
not an ant at all, claims a famous
nickname, the cow killer. Ranked on the insect
sting pain index as being the fourth most painful
sting in the insect kingdom. Rumor has it that the pain is
so intense it can kill a cow. You may be looking at
this thinking to yourself, “Coyote, are you
gonna get stung?” Yeah, I am, I’m gonna
get stung by this today. Now the insect sting
pain index says that the intense pain will
last for about 30 minutes, and the reason that
I’m doing it is to work my way up
to the bullet ant. You wanna see me
stung by the bullet? Kinda feel like I
have to get stung by everything else
leading up to that. I am not looking
forward to 30 minutes of pain that’s gonna
come from this insect. I know, right? Here we go again. Coyote is about to
enter the strike zone. But this one’s a
little different. When it comes to alligator
bites, crab pinches, or blood-sucking leaches,
I’m fine with that. When it comes to
stingers and venom, that’s where even I get nervous. Now, the females
do not have wings, the males do have wings, but what’s interesting is that the males do not have stingers. Guess who does have a stinger. That’s right, the females, and
that who we have here today. Now one of the most impressive
things about this insect is the size of its stinger. In fact, it’s about as long as the entire length
of the abdomen. What I wanna do now is use
these little entomology forceps to pick the velvet ant
up and show you guys just how big that stinger is. You ready for this? – [Mark] Yeah,
are they delicate? – They are not. The velvet ant actually has a very, very
durable exoskeleton, one of the toughest exoskeletons
in the insect kingdom so me picking her
up with the forceps is not going to cause her
any sort of pain or damage. Come ‘ere. Oh. – [Mark] Gettin’
away, gettin’ away. – [Coyote] I got it, I got it. – [Mark] Got it? – [Coyote] Got it. – [Mark] Got it, awesome. – Now they can be
found in the grass so if you’re out there
walking around barefoot and you step on one of these
you’re not gonna squish it. What’s gonna happen is
it’s gonna spin around, and then it’s gonna
tuck its abdomen under, and boom, you’re gonna get
nailed with that giant stinger. Well, I think at this juncture it is time to for me to
actually take a sting. Are you guys getting nervous? I’ll tell ya what, I sure was. Now they say that this sting is painful enough to kill a cow, however there are no
reported cases of cows, or humans for that matter, ever dying from a
velvet ant sting. This makes me feel a bit better but you never know how your
body will react to venom so we always have an
Epinephrine Pen on location, just in case I have an
allergic reaction to the sting. Alright, Mark signaling me
that it is time, here we go. I’m about to be stung by
the velvet ant, here we go. – [Mark] Alright, Coyote,
well it’s about that time. – Yeah. – [Mark] How are we
gonna pull this off? I see we have, camera-wise,
we have a GoPro, small camera right next to me. Oh hey, there’s Chance. Chance over there. What’s the game
plan for this sting? What’s the idea? – Well, this is gonna
go down one of two ways. What I’m gonna try
first is to actually take this little glass,
flip it upside down, get the ant to this end, and then place it
down on top of my arm. This will isolate
the ant on my skin and I’m hoping that, as
it tries to get away, it’s just going to sting me. Now, if that doesn’t work, I also have my pair
of entomology forceps and I’m actually going
to pick up, hold the ant, place it on my arm,
and let it sting me. One way or another,
I am definitely going to be stung
by the velvet ant. Here we go, okay. Now the first thing
I’m gonna do is get the ant up into
that part of the glass, and then I’m going to spin
this over on my forearm, and with any luck the
ant is going to sting me. Here we go, ready? – [Mark] Let’s do
it, here comes the– – I’m Coyote Peterson, and I’m
about to enter the sting zone with the velvet ant. One, two, here we go, three. Oh boy. Oh, my heart’s racing right now. Oh boy, I can its
abdomen kinda pumpin’. My heart is going now. – [Mark] Any second
it could happen. – Yeah, any second
it could sting me. (heavy breathing) Ooh, ooh, ohh, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, it’s biting at my skin! It’s biting at the edge of the
container trying to get out. And that stinger’s gonna be like a little hypodermic
needle going into my skin. (heavy breathing) This is intense. The glass was actually
starting to get a little foggy from
the heat of my skin so at this point I think we
are going to move to plan B, which is holding the velvet ant
with the entomology forceps. I don’t think it’s going
to sting me at this point, it’s been in there
for about two minutes and so far no sting, it’s
just trying to get out. So I’m gonna flip
my arm upside down and get the ant
back under control. Okay, here we go, ready? – [Mark] Okay. – One, two, three. Okay. – [Mark] Whoo. – Ahhh. – [Mark] How do you feel? – Ahh, extremely nervous
and my heart is racing. I actually think I do
have to take a second just to get my heart
rate to calm back down. Okay, cutting GoPro. Okay, alright, the
only way to actually move forward with this is for me to hold the ant with
the entomology forceps up against my skin
and let it sting me. – [Mark] It seems this
is gonna do it, isn’t it? – Yeah. Hold on, I need a second. My heart’s like, oh, getting
dizzy, yeah, getting dizzy. In the world of
entomology when it comes to milking the venom of
insects and arachnids, holding them with forceps is a guaranteed way
to induce a sting. So I think we all know
what’s going to happen next. This is crazy,
guys, this is crazy. My nerves are going this
much for the velvet ant, I can’t imagine what
the tarantula hawk and the bullet ant
are gonna be like. – [Mark] I can’t believe
you’re about to do this, that stinger is enormous. – Yeah, yeah, okay, you can do
this, you can do this, okay. – [Mark] So that
stinger is gonna go all the way under your skin? – Yeah, it’s gonna go
right into my skin. – [Mark] Yeah, I’m ready. (dramatic music) Oh boy. (dramatic music) Alright, here we go. – You ready? Alright, let’s do this again one more time for good measure. I’m Coyote Peterson and I’m
about to enter the sting zone with the cow killer. Are you ready? – [Mark] Are you ready? – No, I’m never ready. One, two, three. You good? Get your shot, I’m gonna
place it right down on my arm. – [Mark] Got it. – Here we go, with my arm shakin’. And, go. (dramatic music) Ow! (grunting) Okay, let me get back here. – [Mark] You alright? What’re you feelin’? – Oh wow, oh wow, okay. (heavy breathing) Give me a second. Oh my gosh! – [Mark] You alright? – Oh yeah. – [Mark] What are you feeling,
what does it feel like? – Give me a second,
give me a second. (heavy breathing) Oh my gosh, guys,
this is super bad. Move this out of the way. (yelling) (heavy breathing) Hold on, I gotta try to
control my heart rate. Try to get a tight shot of it right there where
the stinger went it, you need to see there’s blood. Okay, try to get a shot
’cause I can get up and like walk
around for a second. Right there. – [Mark] Right there
is where it stung you? – Right where it stung me. I could feel it, it was like you could feel it go all
the way under the skin, all the way in. I could feel it
insert into my arm. (grunting) – [Mark] You gonna be alright? – Okay, now they say that
the sting of the velvet ant will last for about 30 minutes and I can tell
you guys right now this is the worst
sting I’ve ever taken, there’s no question about it. It’s worse than a harvester ant, it is worse than a fire ant. It feels like I’m getting
stung over and over again. You could see the welt
starting to form on my arm. – [Mark] Oh man, yeah,
there’s a welt, big time. Describe the pain, is it
like a pulsating pain, a stabbing pain? – The pain, it’s
radiating, it is radiating. It feels like, you
know if you get a charlie horse in your
muscle and it like seizes up, and then it’s like– Oh, that is powerful. I can see why they
call ’em cow killers. Oh, that is some intense
pain right there. How long has it been, about? – [Mark] About seven minutes. – Seven minutes? Now they say the pain from
this lasts for about 30, I have about 23 minutes to
go, guys, 23 minutes to go. (yelling) Now aside from working my
way up to the bullet ant, the reason I was willing to
take a sting from this insect was so that we could all see
the effects of the venom. 25 minutes has gone by,
my arm is still on fire, and what’s crazy is that
look at all the red blotching that’s formed around the sting. There’s the stinger
insertion point right there and it is swollen,
and it is very tender, and you could see how red the
entire radius is of the sting. And I’m sweating. My goal was to do
the best I could to describe the
pain I was feeling. And it still hurts, it
definitely still hurts, but not as bad as the initial
impact of the stinger. But what’s interesting is that all around the sting is tingling like these little, tiny
pin cushion needles going– And as you can see there’s all
these little red dots forming and I’m assuming that is where the venom is
spreading into my arm. Oh wow, well I
would say that this was definitely one
very intense sting. The cow killer has earned
its reputation as being one of the most powerful
stings in the insect kingdom. (yelling and grunting) And while it may
be ranked as a four on the insect sting pain index, for me at this point, it’s
definitely number one. I’d say I’m one step closer to being stung by the
bullet ant, but first, I’m gonna have to go up
against the tarantula hawk. I have a feeling that that
one is going to be bad. I’m Coyote Peterson. Be brave, stay wild. We’ll see you on
the next adventure. Whoo, let’s get
out of the desert. Velvet ants are
nomadic ground dwellers that feed primarily on nectar so there’s absolutely no reason
you should ever fear them. If you live or are hiking
in velvet ant territory you’ll want to avoid
a possible sting. Keep your boots on your feet
and you’ll be just fine. If you missed the painfully
entertaining conclusion to my climb up the
insect sting pain index make sure to go back and watch, Stung by an Executioner Wasp. And don’t forget, subscribe
and click the notification bell so you can join me and the crew
on our next wild adventure. (coyote howling)

Uneven Map Bugs – True Blue & True Red | UPDATE: FIXED ON 3/13/2017!

Uneven Map Bugs – True Blue & True Red | UPDATE: FIXED ON 3/13/2017!


Mmm It’s a Orange Juice What’s up everyone? This is Orange Juice Today I’ll be talking about True Red and True Blue To simplify things, in a clan match when you request for a friendly battle The one requesting will be True Blue And the player who accepts the match will be True Red When you or another clanmate spectates a friendly battle You’ll be able to determine who is True Blue and who is True Red When you’re True Red what the game does is flip the map and basically mirrors the units you place so that you appear on the bottom of the screen as Player Blue Even if your actually True Red in a perfect world the mirrored map should reflect the card actions perfectly but with X/Y Coordinate rounding errors, interactions with certain units on certain tiles are not always going to be identical Let’s explore these discrepancies When you split Barbarians in the back, specifically on the center-right tile 3 Barbarians will split right and 1 Barbarian will always split left This is consistent with True Red and True Blue However, when you plant the Barbarians on the centre-left tile True Blue will split 2 Barbarians in the left and 2 Barbarians on the right Whereas True Red will split 3 Barbarians to the left and 1 on the right When you’re attacking with the Hog on offense You can’t bypass a 4-3 building plant with a Hog Rider Because he has the largest sight range in the game Spanning 9.5 tiles, he is easily attracted to buildings However, if you can nudge him a little bit with a Pig Push You can bypass a 4-3 building plant with a Hog Rider Check out my Pig Push video if you havent seen it yet for a more in-depth explanation on how Pig Pushing works Now, when you’re True Blue you don’t need to do a Pig Push on the left side Without requiring any units to push You can Hog Hop the left river as True Blue to completely bypass a 4-3 building plant When a balloon is planted in the second-most outer tile of the map on the right side Both of the balloons will be pulled with a defensive building with a 4-2 building plant Effectively defending against most of the balloons Now, when a balloon is planted on the map on the left side True Red will actually bypass a 4-2 building plant So True Blue fails to defend in this scenario Against Elite Barbarians, whenever they’re approaching you from the right lane You can actually kite them with an Ice Golem to the left lane This doesn’t hold true when Elite Barbarians are coming at you from the left lane True Blue cannot kite Elite Barbarians with an Ice Golem on the 4th tile Instead True Blue has to plant the Ice Golem on the second or first tile from the river to successfully kite Elite Barbarians from the left lane Against Royal Giants, there’s an inconsistency in both Player Red and Player Blue When a Tesla is planted 3 tiles from the river and 3 tiles from the Arena Tower True Blue’s Royal Giant will bypass the left side When you plant a Royal Giant on the right side, now True Red has the advantage and can bypass the right side without activating the Tesla I honestly think this interaction was the death of the Tesla otherwise it would’ve been a reliable counter to the Royal Giant because it functioned properly on both sides You wouldn’t have needed to react to Royal Giant with an Inferno Tower or anything else During the Miner meta, when he was in every single deck it was a little confusing which tiles were optimal for countering him because there were inconsistencies When the Elixir Collector is planted in front of the Kings Tower and the Miner’s planted in the corner on this tile, True Red’s Miner will attack the Elixir Collector whereas True Blue’s Miner will activate the Kings Tower instead of attacking the Elixir Collector When an Elixir Collector is planted on the corner right side where the Miner will attack the Elixir Collector while True Blue’s Miner will attack the Arena Tower Leaving that Elixir Collector untouched This becomes even more confusing when the Elixir Collector is planted on the left side Now True Red’s Miner will attack the Arena Tower and True Blue’s Miner will attack the Elixir Collector So, in a clan match the person to request for the match will be assigned as True Blue and the person who accepts the match will be assigned as True Red You can spectate to verify the True Colors However when you spectate a friend on your Friends List It is not a reliable way to determine the True Color because you get Spectator Bias So the game will always display your friend as Blue regardless if it’s their True Color or not On ladder, you can determine if you’re True Blue immediately based on the trophies If you have more trophies than your opponent Then you will be assigned as True Blue The player with the lower amount of Trophies will be assigned as True Red Also this is the only game mode where the intro screen for Home and Visitor holds true most of the time In Challenges, the player with more wins will be True Blue There’s no way to know right off the bat if you have more wins than your opponent or not and the intro screen is not accurate as you’ll sometimes appear as Home and you’ll sometimes appear as a Visitor regardless of your True Color Why does this happen? Andrew from Reddit makes an educated guess explaining that the units are on an X/Y plane the path finding AI dictates what position they’ll move to next The calculations in that decisions will sometimes rounding fractional numbers This rounding step will result in different outcomes based on what quadrant of the map you’re in and where you’re headed True Blue sees the X/Y/Z plane as it really is True Red will see the mirrored image of the True Plane This allows both players to appear at the bottom when they play So to recap, the True Red and the True Blue bug makes this game unplayable Na, I’m just kidding But they do have very slight feel differences I wouldn’t even consider then field advantages Since both sides have different interactions They’re so minuscule it won’t change your gameplay Not unless you’re consistently reaching 12 wins back to back to back Chances are this minuscule discrepancies in unit interactions won’t influence the final outcome of the battle Thanks for watching, stay tuned for more confusing OJ

How to film insects on the cheap

How to film insects on the cheap


today I’m going to show you how to film
insects and other small things on the cheap. the first thing you will need is a toy
microscope so I have one here and what you want to do is basically smash it up
with a hammer and you want the lens. hopefully the lens will be plastic if
it’s a toy microscope because if its glass, you’ll have smashed it up. so you take the
plastic lens from here. here’s one I made earlier. you can see it’s actually quite
powerful. and then the next thing you need– blu-tack. you make a ring of it
around the edge like that, and actually as long as you don’t
obstruct the optical axis, it doesn’t matter too much if you get a bit of it
in the…on the actual lens itself rather than just round the edge. now next
take your phone, stick it on like so and then go onto your camera like so. I can now magnify anything and
you basically just move your phone back and forth as if it’s a magnifying glass
because that’s exactly what it is: a magnifying glass. and as you can see, I can now do that. that the next thing you want to do is either turn on your flash or your
torch like that. get something to magnify for example, this Metacanthina
trilobite, and look at that. you just… so that’s all there is to it. all you do:
take a toy microscope, smash it up, take out the lens, stick it on your phone with
some blue tack, and away you go!

SPIT ON MY ROSEMARY PLANTS? Spittle Bugs!🐛Plant Care


Doesn’t this look interesting? This is a
rosemary plant I bet you must think that we got a little fungus or something. What
are all these bubbles? Well, believe it or not it’s a bug
Yuck it’s called a spittle bug and the reason it’s called that is because the
bug will excrete bubbles and all of this froth from its hind legs, or, its
tushy and it’s a way for them to protect themselves from predators while they
feed. So what I can see right now on this rosemary plant is that the spittlebugs
are having dinner! Of course I want to have dinner too, Oh no! I cut some of this
and put it on the barbecue! Am I gonna be eating spittle bugs? Maybe! Yuck!
Have you guys ever seen this? It’s not commonly seen because it’s an insect
that hides very very well except for when it’s hungry and it comes out to eat.
Can you believe this? Okay so this can be taken care of you can make a homemade
remedy of garlic, pepper, water, and a little bit of oil and spray it on it or
you can get yourself a little neem. Neem oil! Oh my gosh, well I guess I won’t be
eating from this plant again! Oh man, that’s a bummer. Spittle bugs my friends
on rosemary .They also love junipers and yews, and other coniferous plants -pines.
course they’re pretty interesting huh look at that! You learned about it from
Shirley follow me!

[Hearthstone Science] Patch 4.2 Mechanic Changes, Bugfixes and Bugs

[Hearthstone Science] Patch 4.2 Mechanic Changes, Bugfixes and Bugs


Hello everyone! Let’s take a look at what’s
changed in Patch 4.2 of Hearthstone. We’ll look at mechanic changes and bug fixes, then
at new bugs, then at unfixed bugs, and finally at unintuitive, but unlikely to change interactions.
So the video doesn’t take forever, I’ll focus only on common gameplay bugs and changes. First, mechanic changes. Mechanic Change #1: The Secrets related to
playing a minion, Mirror Entity, Sacred Trial, Snipe and Repentance have had their card text
changed to use ‘After’ instead of ‘When’. This is a major clarity improvement, as these
Secrets trigger after the minion enters play and after its Battlecry has resolved. For
more information, check out our previous video, “Battlecries Resolve AFTER The Minion Enters
Play” Mechanic Change #2: The Lord Jaraxxus vs Sacred
Trial interaction is finally fixed. Now Lord Jaraxxus dies to Sacred Trial if played onto
a board of 3 or more minions, as intended. If you play Lord Jaraxxus onto a board of
2 or less minions, Sacred Trial will not trigger. This is intended, as all the other Secrets
related to playing a minion trigger on Lord Jaraxxus the Hero. Mechanic Change #3: The Enrage Bug has finally
been fixed. During Patch 4.0 to 4.1, Enrage effects would not function if the minion’s
Attack was Direct Set, such as by Crazed Alchemist or Aldor Peacekeeper, and the minion was later
Enraged. Now they work fine. Mechanic Change #4: The ‘Forced Death Phase’
mechanic has changed. Three spells and triggers – Poison Seeds, Reincarnate and Mimiron’s
Head – used to kill the minions and resolve their deathrattles before continuing with
the spell or trigger’s effect. For example, casting Poison Seeds with an Explosive Sheep
out would detonate it before the Treants were summoned. But in Patch 4.2, the Explosive
Sheep’s deathrattle waits until the Treants are summoned, and kills them. Reincarnate
has changed similarly – Reincarnating an Explosive Sheep now additionally kills the new Explosive
Sheep, giving you a 4 damage board clear. This change was unintentional, and the Blizzard
devs are currently reviewing it. Depending on player feedback, this change may be kept
or it may be reverted. Mechanic Change #5: Master of Ceremonies is
no longer buffed by your opponent having a Jungle Moonkin. Your own Jungle Moonkins still
buff your Master of Ceremonies. Mechanic Change #6: The Scarab from Obsidian
Destroyer is now a Beast. I’m not sure if this will ever make a difference, but a fixed
bug is a fixed bug. Now for some new bugs in Patch 4.2. Bug #1: When your Mimiron’s Head triggers
to summon V-07-TR-0N, if one of the minions used is Clockwork Gnome or Mechanical Yeti,
then the client will hang just as the transformation finishes. The client hanging means that it
is waiting for an animation to finish that never will, while the game continues on the
server, so you must disconnect and reconnect to continue playing. This bug is a side-effect
of the change to Forced Death Phase timing. Bug #2: If a Dalaran Aspirant or a minion
buffed by Ancient Mage is stolen, the original controller will still have the Spell Damage
bonus. However, a minion buffed by Velen’s Chosen works correctly. Let’s demonstrate that a minion buffed by
Velen’s Chosen then stolen correctly transfers the Spell Damage bonus. Let’s demonstrate that a minion buffed by
Ancient Mage then stolen does not transfer its Spell Damage Bonus, like Dalaran Aspirant. Bug #3: If you have a minion buffed with Velen’s
Chosen and play a Master of Ceremonies, its Battlecry won’t activate. Dalaran Aspirant
and Ancient Mage buffed minions work fine, however. Now, let’s look at the most common bugs that
have yet to be fixed. Old Bug #1: The ‘Charge Minion’ bug, which
was added in Patch 3.1. If you click on a minion at a very specific timing after playing
it, it will become uninteractible until you disconnect and reconnect. Notice that the
timing of the click in both of the videos is the same. In fact, it doesn’t have to be
a Charge minion – If you interact with a newly played minion in ANY way, such as to use Fireblast
on an Explosive Sheep you just played, you can trigger the bug. Just wait an extra second,
and this bug will never happen to you. Old Bug #2: The ‘Floating Card Hang’ bug,
which is as old as Hearthstone itself. Sometimes when your opponent uses a draw effect, and
immediately plays the drawn card, it will reveal what it is, but it will remain stuck.
This is caused by seeing an extremely specific timing – and since network latency, CPU speed
and the speed at which the server do updates affect what your opponent sees, it is impossible
to deliberately exploit this on ladder. In fact, this bug is so rare that it has never
once been reproduced on purpose, so no one knows exactly how the bug works. And just to be clear – this bug is not caused
by your internet connection, it is caused by an animation hang. What is an animation
hang? It means that the client is waiting for an animation to finish – the played card
disappearing – but due to a bug in the client it never will. Because disconnecting and reconnecting
clears animations, it fixes the bug. If you want to help the bug be fixed, there
are two things the Blizzard devs need to help reproduce, and thus fix, the bug: 1) Videos of the hang starting (not just the
card floating indefinitely) 2) output_log.txt from a game where the hang
occurred. I will put a link in the description for how to turn on logging. Old Bug #3: The Entomb/Full Board bug. If
your board is full, Entomb will shuffle minions into your opponent’s deck, not your own. This
bug happens because Entomb is currently coded to steal a minion, then shuffle it into its
controller’s deck. Because your board is full, the steal fails, and the minion dies instead,
then it is shuffled into your opponent’s deck. Even though the minion did die, a bug causes
on-death triggers and deathrattles to not run – but Kel’Thuzad will still resurrect
the minion. Old Bug #4: The Discover hang. If you choose
a Discover option the exact moment your turn ends, the client will suffer an animation
hang, and you must disconnect and reconnect to continue playing. The workaround is to
not choose any card, and Hearthstone will choose the leftmost one for you. Old Bug #5: Effects that check if a minion
is ‘mortally wounded’ (that is, 0 or less Health) such as Stampeding Kodo, Bouncing
Blade, Grim Patron and Freezing Trap, do not also check the ‘pending destroy’ condition
(that is, hit by a Destroy effect this Phase). As a simple example, Brann Bronzebeard + Stampeding
Kodo can choose the same minion twice, but Stampeding Kodo + Bomb Lobber vs a board of
4 health minions cannot. Now let’s look at how Grim Patron works. In
this clip, an Imp Gang Boss and a Grim Patron exchange damage, the Grim Patron survives
it, but is mortally wounded before he can trigger. This state is correctly checked for,
and no new Patron is summoned. However, if you play Bouncing Blade on a board
of Grim Patrons and Acidmaw, not only will Bouncing Blade continue to hit Patrons that
have been set ‘pending destroy’ by Acidmaw’s effect, but they will continue to spawn more
Patrons. This discrepancy between ‘mortally wounded’ and ‘pending destroy’ is the root
cause of many bugs in Hearthstone. Now, let’s look at some unintuitive interactions
that are stated to be ‘working as intended’ and may or may not change in the future. Interaction #1: The Mistcaller buffs minions
as an on-draw trigger, rather than buffing them in your deck. Disguised Toast has an
excellent video on this if you are interested. Interaction #2: Using Entomb on an enemy minion
will also Entomb your own Djinni of Zephyrs. This interaction is because Djinni of Zephyrs
checks its condition AFTER the spell resolves. AFTER Entomb resolves, its target is a friendly
minion because it’s in a friendly zone – your deck. Since the condition is satisfied, Djinni
will trigger as well. Blizzard is aware that this interaction is unintuitive. I would change
Djinni of Zephyrs’ card text to read ‘After you cast a spell, if it’s targeting a friendly
minion, cast a copy of it on this one.’ to make it 100% clear what it is doing. Interaction #3: Brann Bronzebeard + Echoing
Ooze does not create additional extra Oozes. The technical reason for this interaction
is because Echoing Ooze sets a tag on itself to 1, and setting a tag to 1 twice has no
extra effect. Even though Blizzard says that this interaction is intended, it’s clearly
not intuitive. Maybe they’ll fix this one eventually? Interaction #4: Nozdormu plus Curse of Rafaam
causes your entire turn timer to be taken up by Cursed! animations. This interaction
occurs because the server does not know about animation times – it is too computationally
expensive to simulate them, and if the server asked the client how long they’re lasting,
a modified client could lie and get more time. However, there is a very easy work around
– simply click on the Cursed! cards as they appear on screen. Clicking on cards like this
dismisses them and ends the animations faster, giving you time back and letting you kill
Nozdormu to end the combo. That’s everything I wanted to show you. Thanks
for watching. If you’re interested in Hearthstone’s many bugs, we have an excellent issue tracker
at the url that’s on-screen right now. I’ll link it in the description too. You can search

True bugs: Hypselonotus – Biodiversity Shorts #2

True bugs: Hypselonotus – Biodiversity Shorts #2


Hello my name is Marc and tonight
we’re looking at the true bug Hypselonotus. I’ve got my macro gear
just behind me here and he’s on the branches of this
little plant Let’s take a closer look. I found a whole heap of these guys on the one plant in the garden which made
them really easy to film. and this is a shot, I’m just going to pop my
finger into frame here so it can give you an idea of his size. I did most of the shooting at night which might the job even easier because
they are very slow-moving and very docile. Now most people think of a bug and they think of anything that is small and creepy. When a scientist thinks of a bug they think of the Hemiptera order of insects which are knows as true bugs. One way to recognise true bugs is to look for their long straw like probosis, which is used
usually to suck sap that is in most species, but in some species they will use it to suck the insides out of other insects as in the assassin bug or in the case of
the bed bug to suck blood. I could not figure out what
these guys were doing most of them were just sitting about. This one was playing with a caterpillar, and another one who was really busy being dinner for this spider. Just a guess, but I think this spider is somehow realted to the red back spider of Australia When I came back about a week later to film the start and end of this video I found that these little guys were
actually feeding on incredibly tiny little flowers
that are at the base of each of the leaves of this plant. That explained to me why these guys congregated around this
particular plant It’s because of those tiny flowers. Which probably only this insect can get its mouth parts into. The last thing I observed is that these
guys will actively the defend the best flowers and
chase away competitors In this shot I actually got him chasing away another bug, and I’m sure if it came to
it, if they were equally matched there would be a small fight. I hope you’ve enjoyed my video and thanks to Andreas and the other people on the various forums who helped me to identify this bug I wouldn’t have had a hope on my own of trying to identify this little guy and if you like these type of videos then please subscribe and please click like and comment below and tell your friends
every little bit of feedback helps whether it’s good or bad or whatever you
feel like doing I’ll put a link to my previous video just
after this and a my name is Marc and this is

Day 4: Giant Water Bug, Rhino Beetle, Sago Worm, Crickets – 5 Days of Bug Eating

Day 4: Giant Water Bug, Rhino Beetle, Sago Worm, Crickets – 5 Days of Bug Eating


Greetings, my Lovelies! Welcome back to the Fourth Day of Bug-Eating… …and it’s — this! And this is a special mix. It’s called “The Special Mixed Bugs.” If you missed the fifth day of bug-eating, I’ll put that link down below, and it was for Earthworm Jerky. Yes…check it out. This is a special mix of bugs: it contains two giant water bugs, one female rhino beetle, some big crickets, and some sago worms. It comes in this really nice packaging. It’s double-bagged. Oh, boy… Look at that. So, here we go! Wooooow… Woooow…. Oh, my gosh… Will you look at the size of that. Holy smokes. That is huge. Look at the size of this thing! Oh, my gosh! Here are our beautiful sago worms. And there should be eight of those. Okay, two rhino beetles. Beautiful rhino beetles. And just some, you know, crickets. So the practice of eating bugs is called “entomophagy,” and I’ve eating a few things in the past, including silk worm larva and some mealworms — if you missed those, I’ll put the links down below. And those didn’t really bother me. But, seeing a bug this size, I have to say is a bit disconcerting. Let’s start with a cricket! Here we go — “itadakimasu!” “Crunch, crunch, crunch.” Hmm! That’s pretty good! They have a crispy texture. They kind of just crunch up in your mouth. Nicely seasoned. In terms of flavor, it tastes a little bit nutty. And kind of reminds me a little bit of seaweed. Nutty, and that kind of savoriness that comes with seaweed. But not bad at all. Let’s go to the next one — and look at that! This would be the sago worm. And it’s been dehydrated, so it’s not so gushy. I think eating this raw would be a whole-nother deal. All right, let’s give that a taste, here we go. “Crunch.” Hm! Wow, I just ate the head — It tasted a little bit oily. And — tiny bit livery. Not too bad, nice and crunchy in texture, nicely salted. Wow! Mmhmm… And a little bit sweet. Not too bad at all, actually. Definitely a different texture than the crickets. It’s got a crunch, but much kind of, softer, crumbly crunch. and a little bit oily, and that probably has to do with how these were prepared. In terms of flavor — not bad! A little bit more flavorful than the cricket. Next, let’s try this rhino beetle. Will you really look at that? So they definitely have — all six legs are intact… and there are little feelers on the end of this, and, yep, I can see some eyes. And that carapace is definitely crunchy. and hard. But yeah, I will chew this really well, because it looks quite tough. All right, let’s give that taste! Here we go! “Itadakimasu!” *loud crunching* *CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH…* Hm! And I think the most unpleasant thing is when you bite into it pieces of exoskeleton fly off! Yeah! It doesn’t taste bad, it actually doesn’t have much of a flavor. Again, nutty, very similar to the cricket. I think the most off-putting part is the texture. It’s quite crunchy, but besides being crunchy, it’s very tough and resilient, so you really have to chew it. It’s a bit like chewing, um, yeah, the exoskeleton of an insect! I’m trying to think of what else it’s like. Uh, it’s very, very tough. So, yeah, the wing, as you saw, flew off. There’s some more wing. Let’s give it another bite. *crunch* Hm. That tastes nuttier than either the cricket or the sago worm — nuttier, and drier in texture. And yeah, you definitely feel like you need a beverage because it’s really dry. But the flavor isn’t bad! Again, there’s not much flavor to it, really — salty, and kinda nutty, that’s all I can really describe it as…and flour-y. It doesn’t have a strong flavor about it at all. Mostly it’s a textural, crunchy, leathery, carapace, mandible kind of experience. Okay, so, lastly we’re going to try this bad boy! Oh, my goodness! Look at this thing! It’s a Giant Water Beetle. Oh, my gosh! And they are not kidding when they say giant. So, yeah, I guess I’m just going to bite it and eat it. I’m not going to worry about it too much. I’m just going to eat it! *high-pitched* All right! Here we go! Itadakimasu! *CRUNCH* HMMM! That’s not so bad at all! It’s quite tough. You really have to work through it! But, in terms of flavor: very, very benign actually. Quite salty, and actually reminds me a lot of fish fins! If you have ever had deep-fried fish and then the fins and the tail get really crispy — I love that part of the fish. All of you Asians probably know what I’m talking about! Very similar to that, it has a similar kind of crispness that comes with like a deep-frying of cartilage, or something like that. It sounds awful, but it’s not bad! The crunch of this is actually — I found more pleasant than the rhino beetle. It’s not as tough — it’s more of a crispness. It’s very nicely seasoned — quite salty. And in terms of flavor, again, quite benign. Ergh! Wow! That was a piece of wing in my mouth! Mmhm. Mhmm. Hm! It’s pretty good! Except it gets stuck in your teeth. This one tastes a little bit more meaty… and very, very similar to, like I said, crispy fins you’d find on a fish. Pretty good! Not bad at all! I think if I was accustomed to eating this as a snack, just no problem! It would be just, like, “Oh, yeah! Natural Doritos.” Boom. All right, I hope you guys enjoyed the fourth day of bug-eating. Tune in tomorrow for day three and see what I eat tomorrow. All right, let me know in the comments below — what would you do if this giant water bug showed up on your doorstep. Would you eat it? Let me know in the comments below. All right! Happy Holidays! I hope you guys enjoyed that! I hope you guys learned something! I shall see you in my next video! Toodaloo! Take care! Bye!

This Killer Fungus Turns Flies into Zombies | Deep Look


We like to think we’re in control … that
our minds are our own. But that’s not true for this fruit fly. Its brain has been hijacked by another organism
and it’s not going to end well. It all starts when the fly is innocently walking
around, sipping on overripe fruit. It picks up an invisible fungus spore, which
bores under its skin. For a few days, everything seems normal. But inside, the fungus is growing, feeding
on the fly’s fat … and infiltrating its mind. At dusk on the fourth or fifth day, the fly
gets a little erratic, wandering around. It climbs to a high place. Scientists call this behavior “summiting.” Then it starts twitching. The fungus is in control. The fly sticks out its mouthpart and spits
out a tiny drop of sticky liquid. That glues the fly down, sealing its fate. A few minutes later, its wings shoot up. And it dies. Now that the fungus has forced the fly into
this death pose … wings out of the way … nothing can stop it. It emerges. Tiny spore launchers burst out of the fly’s
skin. Hundreds of spores shoot out at high speed,
catching a breeze if the fly climbed high enough. They’re the next generation of killer fungus. It continues for hours, spores flying out. These flies are in the wrong place at the
wrong time. And if spores land on a wing, which they can’t
bore into, they shoot out a secondary spore to increase their chances of spreading. So how does a fungus take control of a brain? At Harvard, Carolyn Elya is trying to understand
that. She thinks the fungus secretes chemicals to
manipulate the fly’s neurons, maybe stimulating the ones that make flies climb. But don’t worry: The fungus can’t hurt
humans. Scientists have tried to harness its power
for our benefit, to kill flies in our kitchens and farms. They haven’t had any luck though. The deadly spores are actually pretty fragile
and short-lived. It turns out, this lethal puppet master does
only what it needs to for its *own* survival. Hi, it’s Lauren again. If you love Deep Look, why not help us grow
on Patreon? We’re raising funds to go on a filming expedition
to Oaxaca, Mexico. And for a limited time, we’re sweetening the
deal with a special gift. Link is in the description. And if you’re craving more spooky videos,
