    The moment he described ether (aether?) I knew it would involve air. Like how insects used to be giant due to increased O2. Then he mentioned the insects and I’m like, yup, aether is some sort of super-oxygen.

    How to defeat Tyranny of The Rocket? I'm not really sure, but let's look at all the relatively believable animes that cover sci-fi space flight. Nearly every vessel launches from some kind of guided track, which accelerates them faster than their propulsion engines are capable of from a dead stop. The most logical translation of this launch track is rally in technology.

    As Austin was describing elephants evolutions my mind went to dragons sense dragons are large would then in turn produce more heat so I think then dragons spit fire not because of magic but because of all the built up body heat from flying and living

    I already watched and loved this video when it was new, but when I re-watched it just now to show my friend, it was like watching it for the first time all over again, because I didn't retain anything, haha. Anyway, my point is, this video is still awesome, even upon re-watching. I love science so much. :)

    It’s because it’s part of what makes an Austin video an Austin video. And it’s free. Pretty much all music over 100 yrs old are in the public domain. Carmen and others clearly fall into that category.

    I'd be interested in seeing a followup to this, examining how the abilities of some behemoths might work. What would it take for a living creature to generate lightningbolts like Drask or ball lightning like Stormclaw. Electric eels can generate electricity but not enough to arc to creatures that arn't touching them or the water they are in. How about Embermane, what would it take for a creature to be literally on fire at all times but not be burned to death? We have bio-luminescent creatures on earth but could they possibly generate enough coherent light to make a laser beam like Valomyr?
