          I'm I the only one who felt a shot of Irony when Malik came on camera? Someone who knows education and critical thinking is so important in our world today and yet he is also aware that Youtube is chalk full of hundreds of thousands of misinformation videos. (ridiculous conspiracy theory videos)

                        also what a sad state of affairs for this video to only have 90k views. science isnt really popular among children and the youth, not as much as fortnite and esports.
                        I hope you continue making videos Destin. You're one of the few good people left that wants to change the world for the better.

                          can you imagine what will happen if youtube deletes pewdiepie's and all the 10 million plus subs video games lets play channel and push everyone to subscribe to science channels like destin's. in the next 20 years we wouldve gotten flying cars and holographic projectors.

                            Destin yesterday was December 25th, I’m wondering if you celebrated the birth of a highly religious man who’s life has affected everyone since his birth. I’m talking of course about Sir Issac Newton. We all have Sir Issac Newton to thank for demoestatrating what the characters and Bible was teaching was wrong. (And the church was having people pay for this fake science news). Just think Destin, it were not for Sir Issac Newton proving the Bible and what religious leaders were teaching as wrong you would not have a job, you would not be able to make videos, there would be not computers and there would be no Internet. So did you celebrate the seeker of truth, Sir Issac Newton’s birthday? Or the other guy?

                                        Why is there is no contact info for this event? No phone number, no address, just an email that no one responds to. I have several questions about accessibility, allergies and the menu. I'd love to bring my family but we'd rather not be embarrassed.

                                          Does anyone know if there will be a vegan meal option? I sent a message through the website but no one responded. We'll just happen to be in Huntsville next week and we're considering Thinkercon. We really don't want to sit there and pretend to eat. Any info on this greatly appreciated.

                                                    It's like a Flat Earth conference for people who think.

They may be fun (to some) by appealing to their pyromaniac tendencies, but the damage they do to wildlife, particularly birds negates that pleasure. Take a walk on the morning of July 5th in some town in America. Dead Birds. The birds get confused and disoriented. Something happens to them, and you can easily find numerous bodies.
                                                                          If July 5th is too far for you, try New Year's Day.
                                                                          Moreover, the celebration leaves thick clouds of smoke pollution, and kids lose eyeballs and fingers every year. (Plus, fireworks cause house fires.)
                                                                          We need fewer fireworks - not more. Destin is allowing the kid in him to hijack his common sense.

                                                                                            I have an idea for a future video. I work on aircraft powered by the Pratt and Whitney PT6-A turboprop. During engine start it is common to start with the 4 blade Hartzell props “feathered”. What is interesting to the naked eye is what happens when they come out of feather and increase RPM. When viewed 90 degrees perpendicular to the engine and directly in line with the plane of rotation of the blades, a noticeable “wobble” takes place as the blades begin to spin at speeds where the propeller takes the shape of a disk. This all occurs as the prop settles into idle speeds. Imagine it similar to the wobble you see in a child’s toy top spinning. I’d really like to know what is happening during this phase of operation. Is it the change in blade pitch I’m seeing? Are the blades actually bending as they change speed and angle of attack? A slow motion video would be amazing!! Just an idea. Stay well!
