  1. Butterflies can distinguish between more colours than humans I heard. Would
    that mean we are naturally colourblind compared to butterflies?

  2. *MY DOG SEES COLORS…*
    Black and blue when I punch him in the face …

    its just a joke people
    don’t get your panties in a bunch
    I don’t even have a dog
    BUT CATS ARE FREAKING AWESOME !!!

  3. I hate it when my dog brings back lemons when I ask him (politely) to bring
    me my blue sneakers. But hey – when dogs give you lemons, make lemonade.

  4. Hey Michael and gang, is there anything scientific behind why baby animals
    (similar to baby people) just want to play and have fun? And when life
    gets older, regardless of species, where does that drive to play go? It’s
    there to a certain extent, but it’s not nearly as prevalent. 

  5. If any of you are interested I did a video that covers not only what color
    dogs see but I compare it to how far humans can see, our field of vision,
    and much more. Thank you.

  6. I’ve heard that our ability to see red came from eating fruit. It became
    important to know which was which when some are poisonous. So our ancestors
    with red receptor genetic variation became better at consistently eating
    ripe, non-poisonous fruit which lead them to survive more often. Since dogs
    and wolves do not normally eat fruit and increasingly became dependent on
    human table scraps, they never needed to see the color. 

  7. Despite the old recommendation of “never throw a red ball onto a green
    lawn”, that will only confuse your dog if the shade of ball is very close
    to the shade of grass. Most of the time they will see it just fine,
    especially with good lighting that can create shadows, just like you can
    see a dark green ball sitting on a light green lawn.

  8. Thanks for conferming my suspecions
    i had always thought dawgs cod see collers its just that threw there
    evolution they have never realy needed a good coller sight to maby spot
    witch fruits were ripe. besides they got the nose and the whiskers
    they just opperate with other senses that wod be more useful for them doing
    hunt instead of collor sight

  9. My question is if you have 2 male twins and 2 female twins and they
    reproduce and have a baby of the same gender would they look like twins .
    I’ve been wondering this for a while now

  10. Hey guys I have a question, I hope you can explain this in one of your
    future videos.

    Why do muscles hurt after exercises? And why does this pain sometimes
    actually feels good??

    Thanks! You guys are awesome.

  11. Does microwaving water for your hot drinks make any difference compared to
    boiling it on the stove? I ask because a lot of my European friends are
    horrified when I tell them I microwave the water for my tea. 

  12. This is why the Big Bang and most science is fake . You are not a dog . How
    do we know they can see those colors? Animals are a crazy thing . Just
    because we think they see in those colors .. Does not make it true . Same
    as the Big Bang and evolution (Darwin’s version) . You people need to go to
    church and open your eyes .

  13. Here’s something that I’m curious about-how do we figure out what colors
    the cones can pick up? I mean…..I’m not doubting that this is true, I’ve
    known the black & white thing was wrong for a while, but………yeah O.o

  14. If you had two still living bodies: one without brain and one with.
    What would happen, if you succesfully implanted half of the brain from one
    with to the body without?
    Would the personality split?

  15. It’s a shame though… I wish I was one of the small group in the global
    population who had 4 cones. Apparently this makes them able to see way a
    ridiculously high number of colours and shades over our own 3 cone
    limitation of colour vision.

    I want 5 cones yo.

  16. Love the song, absolutely hate the video. The video makes no sense
    whatsoever. It’s just a bunch of stupid-looking people dancing
    stupid-looking dances to an amazing piece of music.

  18. This song was in the party playlist last night.
    
    I wanted to take my clothes off, clapping, jumping and dancing naked around
    the floor.

  19. Florence + The Machine
    Dog Days Are Over

    Happiness hit her like a train on a track
    Coming towards her stuck still no turning back
    She hid around corners and she hid under beds
    She killed it with kisses and from it she fled
    With every bubble she sank with her drink
    And washed it away down the kitchen sink

    The dog days are over
    The dog days are done
    The horses are coming
    So you better run

    Run fast for your mother, run fast for your father
    Run for your children, for your sisters and brothers
    Leave all your love and your longing behind
    You can’t carry it with you if you want to survive

    The dog days are over
    The dog days are done
    Can you hear the horses?
    ‘Cause here they come

    And I never wanted anything from you
    Except everything you had and what was left after that too, oh
    Happiness hit her like a bullet in the back
    Struck from a great height by someone who should know better than that

    The dog days are over
    The dog days are done
    Can you hear the horses?
    ‘Cause here they come

    Run fast for your mother, run fast for your father
    Run for your children, for your sisters and brothers
    Leave all your love and your longing behind
    You can’t carry it with you if you want to survive

    The dog days are over
    The dog days are done
    Can you hear the horses?
    ‘Cause here they come

    The dog days are over
    The dog days are done
    The horses are coming
    So you better run

  20. Is it just me or does this video remind you of something out of a David
    Tennant Doctor Who episode??? I want to clap and dance every time but the
    video scares me like she will eat me….

  21. her voice is so chilling and i dunno peaceful, anyway i can’t explain what
    i’m feeling while listening to her, i just adore her voice :)

  22. Director must be a hipster on acid trip. Or like if Tim Burton directed
    this after getting back from Burning Man. Either way, it’s fucking
    terrible.

  23. If I had a penny for every pixel in this video, I’d have just enough to buy
    a tootsie roll. That is, I already had fifty cents.

  24. It’s actually about domestic violence. For example; “she hid around corners
    and she hid under beds” she’s hiding from the violent person. “She killed
    it with kisses and from it she fled. With every bubble she sank with her
    drink and washed it away down the kitchen sink” is about trying to calm the
    violent person down by smothering him with kisses and she then drinks away
    her sorrows with alcohol (with every bubble). Another example is the
    heading. Dog days are a meaning for happy days. The happy days are over.
    And then we get into the bit where it goes “run fast for your mother run
    fast for your father…” This is about getting out of the relationship for
    your family. You have to do it for your family even though you are scared.
    And “struck from a great height by someone who should know better than
    that” is in my interpretation you meet this charming guy and you fall in
    love with him but he turns out to be violent, so you wouldn’t expect this
    to be coming from such a handsome man. So yeah, that’s my meaning of dog
    days are over.
