  2. Sometimes labs can be useless, because some people have different level tolerances. Doctors won't tell you that though

  3. I’m deadass impressed about how confidently and accurately you talked about the aircraft stuff. Are you like a personal pilot or did you do research?

  4. This video answered zero questions. It was more of an overview or an outline for “what’s to come” in a course.

  5. You sir make interesting videos… seriously I work in lab and now it’s so much fun and exciting!! Looking forward for more videos! Keep up the great work. God bless!
