Fabulous video, as usual. The classic idea of relating size by saying "If something was as big as something else, then...." whilst simple for some, is quite difficult for others to imagine quickly and get the full experience. An analogy that I really like that does the same job is "There are more atoms in the ink at the tip of a pen, than there have been seconds since the big bang." I have only done very rough calculations so perhaps it needs to say "the ball at the tip of a pen" to be more accurate. It would be good to see some higher resolution attempts.

This video asks for an example of altruism in animals. The problem is that philosophers have long known that it seems impossible to come up with a scenario that demonstrates a complete lack of self interest - human or non-human. There is an issue with the concept that this video has done an excellent job of exposong.

Android Bugs  - 
 
RemoteMouse core functionality is working very well for me but it has a couple of problems at the edges.  I am using a Samsung Zoom connected to a Windows 7 PC.  When using the Application Remote Panel some buttons don't work, for example, Show Desktop doesn't hide windows; my MS Word and MS PowerPoint icons cause "get "opn" data error"; Tapping my Folder icon does nothing and the icon for Hearts doesn't show.    Chrome, Bridge Baron, fibzilla, Calculator, MS Excel, Adobe Reader, Keepass, IE, Quickbooks and many others work as expected.  All icons work fine if I click on the Taskbar on the PC.

The voice typing capability keeps repeating text.  For example, this is what I got when I spoke this sentance - "the voice typing capability keeps repeating text for example this is what i got when i spoked spoke thisthe voice typing capability keeps repeating text for example this is what i got when i spoke this sentence".

All the best

I think that there are a lot of people missing your calendar that would love to see it but don't know that they exist This is because they are not offered directly to your subscribers but instead are provided as links in the commentary of the first video. If it wasn't for the second video that went to the subscribers I would still be wondering why there was only one day on your calendar. I am sure that you have a good reason for doing it the way you are but I strongly suspect that a lot less people are viewing it as a result. I must admit that I often don't read the commentary of YouTube videos. I tend to keep my phone in landscape and forget that there is also commentary to read.

I am very glad that I picked up on the process. Thanks for all your videos.

+AlanKey86 maybe just make the others public in the next 4 months or something, as extra videos when you weren't able to make new ones

Thanks +AlanKey86 I really enjoy all your posts. The incredibly slow zoom in this video is fascinating. I have tried to notice it happening but I can't, but sure enough, jump forward or back and the candle is further away or closer! Thanks for all the downloads. Merry Christmas.

Just had an excellent meal - Sage and parmesan crusted pork cutlet with parmesan and a delicious jus. A very pleasant atmosphere. I'll be back.
