  1. This is so indicative of people today. A lot of them are, for a lack of better words, absolutely idiotic but so prideful and arrogant that they smugly walk around as if they are right, unwilling to think and learn and take an expert’s word for it. Uh this video hurt to watch because of how often this has happened. I’ll be sitting with friends/Family and I will add my two cents on a subject knowing the truth because I’ve done research and I know the facts. Yet, because they don’t understand what it is I’m saying they just say “that’s wrong.” No, you’re just too stupid to see that it’s right.

  2. It’s possible a triangle with 3 perpendiculars on 3 dimensions (like the equator and 2 meridians. They will all be perpendicular between themselves). Like cutting half an orange in 4 equal parts, each part will have 3 perpendicular “lines”…

  3. I mean, technicly opaque ink is possible. Like stained glass or something.

    also, he can inflate a baloon into a kitten. They are called baloon animals?

    Still funny 🙂

  4. Been there….done that…especially frustrating when you want to help
    …want to work together…and can compromise.
    Comment? True mark of an expert is knowing when to give up.

  5. I just cant get over the bad use of color grading… ugh!, everything looks so blown out and over white. The short is good though……. but, did I mention, the color….nevermind.

  6. One of the best videos I have ever seen.

    Something I've been waiting ages to get off my chest.

    Experiencing this kind of alienating BS almost daily.

    Fellow engineers, I share your throbbing pain.

    Thank you for this Lauris!

  7. Haha ‘the expert’ was on the dreadnaught of the lastest Star Wars movie..‘you want me to shoot green lasers at the rebels perpendicular…of course I can…I’m an expert!’
