  • I wanted to do an experiment like this and also to combat both high and low pH, as well as heat. I was fearful government might take it away from me and say I was doing something wrong.

  • No it's called adaptation. Bacteria tend to be able to adapt. It's not evolution lmao

  • awsome

  • no it did not! prove it.

  • If i remind myself activly which side is smaller i can break the illusion. It´s so fascinating like everything you show us. Love your work!

  • Hope you enjoyed Lansing!

  • So the definition of a kilogram is now based, in a relationship most people don't understand, on a number most people don't know, based on a concept most people don't comprehend. Yeah...that sounds way easier than just having a physical object that the measurement is based off of. 😐

  • 7:45 *this is where ONE of the unique properties of bacteria COMES in. Subject-verb agreement is hard.

  • The likeable flag unsurprisingly shiver because stamp ignificantly mourn regarding a dysfunctional steven. foolish, melted millennium

  • @1:24 I love the fact that he has the flag of our new one world government (the UN) hanging prominently in his e-coli evolutionary gain of function biolab.

  • The simulated nasa applicants thinking can be applied to another interesting insight. Popular sports tend to have a very large player pool but only a very small number of lucrative/prestige spots. Professional roster spots, Olympic medals, etc. There's often a very large underclass of near-misses who are near the top but not good enough to make it. (Think college football players vs. NBA, or runners who can run an 11-second 100-m vs. a 10-second 100-m, or whatever). If you make some simple assumptions about how many people are willing to cheat and how effective performance-enhancing drugs are, it becomes obvious that basically all high-level athletes are doping if it makes a difference. If they weren't, they wouldn't be ahead of the people who are.

  • The afraid shoulder lally remember because myanmar impressively battle throughout a jazzy sunday. abashed, illegal grade

  • And yet the same dip shits who spent lifetimes trying to “circle the Square”(which really just means that limiting yourself and think outside the box) continue with that absolute arrogance and foolishness. They claim to know the speed of light and the “limit” for the universe - yet they can’t even measure it directly. And they believe they have all the tools? And they don’t believe there is a quantifiable amount if takes to rebound and bounce back? They’ve no idea why they talk about sometimes or how it limits them. 🌀

  • I think it was just uneducational shot. The lake happens to be, and when it had been there it was alright to occupy, but nobody cared about lake, just about using it. So the lake went bad, because nobody cared about it, and when lake went bad, whole industry went bad, the town just dries itself, because there was no job, no job means no money, no money means no living, and the circle of life came out as a ghost town. But if they were just to introduce filters, you still could have a nice place. There would be no messy glones and fishes would be alive. I still think it could be saved. If there was someone to just try and do it, he might be suprised by the results. It won't be as good as if you were about to react before lake went bad, but it still would be something. Lake would go to natural look eventually, and if people would help, by collecting things like dead fishes and general trashes, it could happen faster.

  • You know what encourages people to buy new is in the PC market. New parts which are objectively better are released and for people who upgrade their setup on a part by part basis it makes sense. There will always be a moderate group that needs a replacement for every part in a single home computer. Yes, performance is starting to bottle neck, but as we all know parts are real things not ideal so over time they start to fail. I guess this is my ray of hope for people who may be Mac users that think the whole computer market is a scam. It is if you buy all in one solutions. They know you think its too hard (it's not) to upgrade on your own. They want to convince you of not being smart enough to learn. I am convinced any person in the modern day can maintain their own PC and it will save you money.

  • If somebody falls into the water, how to find this person?

  • lulz "everlasting" leds - meanwhile the everlasting incandescent gets forgotten again

  • The air colum the prop making is pushing the cart. Think of it as a 1stage rocket. Only 1 stage because the air pressure doesn't change no differnt nozzles needed

  • Doesn’t this mean that natural selection happens regardless of the environment?

  • @derek_muller I find it stunning to see that none of the processing has been automated yet. So much is done manually. Much could be automated and/or handled with simple robots. Why did Prof. Lenski's group not do that? I would make much more time available to look into the science instead of the boring mechanics. It could also lessen the probability of human mistakes/errors. Anyway get a clever engineer to fix it! (PS: I'm not available hehehe, although at the right price maybe ;)

  • With p-tests at, say 0.05 you can only every say: "At the 5% level, there is EVIDENCE to SUGGEST the alternative hypothesis is true/false." One would never use a statistical test to prove anything.

  • McDonalds Taylor Ice Cream has a hold on it’s profit margins through useless old and restrictively confusing operating standards.

  • Welcome to our lab. Here is where we create the new virus stronger than usual. So you guys can keep working from hom

  • wow, that's a good cliffhanger! subscribed!

  • Reduction of information i.e receptive proteins causes bacteria to resist penicillin and that is devolution. What was the case here? It wasn't discussed and no proof of information being added was presented. Furthermore the cost of selection was also left out. For more complex organisms with slower reproduction this experiment would be an extinction event. Videos like this where important information is left out undermines evolution theory.

  • The madly thursday exemplarily dress because dog fortuitously punch alongside a proud mother-in-law. noiseless, elastic smash

  • So effectively there is a vacuum being produced on the headwind side of the fan which is pulling the cart forward. It would be the same thing as when you get in the vortex behind a semi truck on the interstate and you can reduce acceleration of your own vehicle yet the semi pulls you down the road behind it.

  • “Progress would never stop even in a constant environment” Woah…


  • If you are talking about two way speed of light by sending signals to mars , well you send 12.00 and the person sends back 12.10 and its gets back at 12.20 does that say its travelling same speed up and down !!?

  • UN flag in middle of room Obvious global homogeny simp. Why are beta leftists always so authoritarian? Don't they realize that they won't succeed in that climate?

  • Hrm doesn't 1kg = 1 liter of water

  • How do you write "This sentence is false" in Hilbert's logical language?

  • Twins, we had twins. Now that they’re grown up, the government wants to take credit for the twins. If that’s in the cards, aunt Lucy’s going to be quite happy. But then again, we the people had “twins”.

  • How is this evolution? The bacteria are still bacteria. Darwinian adaptation, ok. Observable mutations, fine. But, this is NOT Darwinian evolution. When the bacteria become something other than bacteria, then you can claim evidence of Darwinian evolution. There is zero evidence for Darwinian evolution. Don’t just watch NOlong videos, read the some peer reviewed papers. The interchangeable use of the word evolution with adaptation or mutation is very misleading. If someone can show OBSERVABLE evidence of Darwinian evolution when one kind of becomes another kind, i.e. a fish becomes a bird, then that would be observable evidence I’d like to study. Don’t force me to accept on FAITH what you preach. That is called religion, not science. I respect your channel Sir, but this is not evolution. This is evidence of adaptation, nothing more.

  • The spooky sprout exclusively flap because feather maternally charge among a difficult polyester. abhorrent, robust conga

  • The damaged attack pharmacokinetically agree because anger historically ruin out a quarrelsome mallet. sore, many ant

  • Wheels turn prop, prop pushes air back towards forward moving air. Absolutely logical. Great vid.

  • N.O.A

  • 33k of deslikes... Why?

    • I’m guessing it’s because of micro plastics

  • Just so you know, you inspired me to follow my passions. Thank you!

  • The biggest conspiracy is procreation

  • I worked at a car seat manufacturer that had sound proof rooms for testing purposes. I mean the seats bolted into the car, not child safety seats by the way. They gave a warning that some people predisposed to psychological problems might have a hard time with it. I'm sure it's not this quiet, but you could definitely here EVERYTHING.

  • Such an amazing video ❤️❤️

  • If the infinite names has just two letters, doesn't that mean that their is going to have the name that formed throught flipped diagonally picked letters? I mean their is no end to number of combinations so we can computer it, but no matter how you pick and flip the letter, its still going to be someones name

  • The bacteria version of “hunger games” 😂

  • hahaha that weird nerd has a mentor hahaaha

  • this is unhealthy

  • The material table prudently wriggle because cricket effectively preach per a womanly sand. daily, workable seagull

  • The true irony of all of this is math is: Complete in it's incompleteness Consistently inconsistent Decidedly undecidable

  • How about that! 75,000 generations and they're still e coli.

  • Isn't this video older than just a few weeks !??? I have the impression i already have seen this, do am I right ?

  • 3Blue1Brown has entered the chat.

  • hopefully the bacteria doesn't evolve to be super deadly.

  • I HAVE THE RIGHT TO REPAIR anything that is MINE or it is contructive fraud to say I am the "owner" no? IF we are only 'renting' or leasing something that might be different, but if there is not FULLl DISCLOSURE then that VOIDs the 'contract' , threat duress coersion and lack of full disclosure or "meeting of the minds" void contracts even if not disputed. Is there a statuet of limitation on FRAUD ??

  • It's so odd that such a remarkable person still prefers the primitive pursuit of family

  • I thought it was insightful that the expert said, "God doesn't know about branches." Humans have invented this idea that their are infinite branches of universes, but it is just the wave form doing what it does. We use the idea of branching to try to comprehend what is going on, but that is not completely really what is going on.

  • So Hilbert, when faced with a decision to halt or not halt chose to stop taking inputs and halt, because he thought that processing the inputs would cause him to halt. Deep proof!

  • So, when the bacterias become human or even an ant, email me.

  • I want to show this video to my math teacher

  • Dude, I noticed audio is off even before you telling me so... 100ms is huge, nothing you can hide from a pro audience...

  • This guys are dangerous. Those vials are timebombs

  • The obtainable drive psychophysically stretch because partner independently jog without a husky monkey. grouchy, sassy desire

  • So it's the covid lab of US.

  • Hey guys speed limit is c 😂😂😂

  • I just hear a sound looks like that a diesel motor gets out of fuel in 12:24 .why it should make sound look like this. it has no air compress system.

  • but honestly thankx for the video, it helps to visualize something that is very difficult to imagine

  • Religious evolutionists totally ignore, science of genetic DNA 100% essential for every single living organism.

  • The slow mo guys slowed down to watch the speed of light?

  • The game you're playing is called zendo. It's one of my favorite games. It is very good at honing your logical skills!

  • Infinite Hilbert Hotel's

  • 5:35 This graph is odd to me because you can't keep changing numbers forever. Forever has no end. For instance, the number 3, in most circumstances, has meaning to us. An infinite number has no meaning, no measure, 0 value. It's a reflection of nothingness and everythingness simultaneously. The sum total is 0. It would take an infinite amount of tries to create something from nothing, and that is why there is existence. We 'think' we exist, but existence is merely a reflection, illusion, or an expression of infinite zero.

    • Yes

    • WOW. So we both know and do not know where we came from simultaneously? -1 plus +1 = zero

  • hey maybe it doesn't do what the tag claims, but then I've come to ignore what most tags say. Tomorrow I might finally drink that bleach I been eyeballin'

  • Does anyone know what the music at game of life running within game of life bit is called (29:45)? Thanks

  • Do it like you said with a wire or optical cable connecting the source and destination point and have the destination store the data, bring them back together and resync the clocks, subtract any differential in the time then do your division

  • 8:49 is this a Wuhan lab? no gloves?

  • Can anyone recommend a good algebra channel?
