Happy New Year! I felt like I had a very lucky 2014, and say luck a lot of times in this video. I hope you learn something too.

Pretty chuffed with this profile in The Daily Dot today! 

"BrainCraft, the craftiest science show on YouTube, is here to answer all your questions about why humans are the way they are." 

Also, “If it were up to her, Hill says she would make all her videos about her dog.” This is true.

We have bred canids through trends of thousands of years to please us. They have a wonderful facial recognition ability using all their senses.

So excited that my latest +BrainCraft video is featured in +YouTube Nation as one of today's best :)
 
See the teen that +George Takei is calling America's Adele in tonight's #YouTubeNation.
