"Some dams have been compared to russia. Changed that humid would feel if they got into an elevator at the base of mount everest and went to the peak of mount everest in the blink of an eye go. Who seems like it would mess you up pretty bad. And it messes up there some bladders pretty bad so censor fish are helping. Engineers designed dams create turbulence or have more gradual pressure changes mostly with like different types of propellers on turbines and stuff like that and censor fish. Technology is also starting to be used worldwide. Or it's helping to protect fishing countries like germany or hydroelectric dams are acquired by the government to perform live fish safety tests. So now they don't have to do that as much. I guess but probably way more expensive. Because they're like four thousand dollars a sensor fish or something like that might as well. Just go get some fish. Well as you said you cannot have a post interview with a fish bringing it into the room with a light on its head and be like what did you go throw. Tell me about the barometric pressure you experienced. I dunno i in the visa route. So i dunno good cop. Bad cop yeah. You're a good cop sam. I put the little the little foley blanket on you. Put the foley blanket on them. You lay you want some fries. I'm going in and out. You went to pick some that up and then while you're gone i'm mike. Look now it seems on gonna tell me all about what your acceleration rates. How much did you bomb. Tell me about your gums So so we've got. Matinees used to generate electricity using biogas generated by bacteria from sarah or electro fish. What are they called. The sensor fish that have figured out that rapidly expanding swim bladders were harming fish inside hydroelectric dams. A thing that we didn't know and needed to know. I think that the winner of this is the sensor fish you know and thinking of it in in terms of Of of a tick tock manny's power is a better headline. I think but it's you know it's like it is in the frame of stuff that i already knew quite a lot about. Maybe i'm different in that. Because i spent so much time thinking about green energy but censor fish especially their little balloons fact. That got balloons. The balloons are pretty cute. Yeah all right Well you are a to hank buck deficit to overcome sam. Yeah and i'm gonna give it to you. I want to say that you're censor fish syria. I could see sarah feeling. A little bit slighted there. Yeah i did so good at the game. But i'm gonna look went up so that i can feel better about my loss. They don't look as cool as you are imagining. So congratulations sam. The on your win. And that means it's time to ask the science couch where we've got listener questions for our couch of finely-honed scientific minds. This question is from being addict. See could we generate power for many hydroelectric dams and rain gutters amine theoretically yeah I think there are a couple of problems with this idea. Should i hit you with him. Sara should you tell me about them. You should do that. This is like a topic that you do know a lot about that. I don't know a lot about well. I know both about energy generation and about gutters because they have them. And i have to clean and so my main my main worry here is that you want your gutter to be clean and lakes a real real smooth slide. All the way down because stuff gets in there and you can't like prevent stuff from getting in there. There are a couple of ways that people have sort of experiment with how to prevent the leaves in the detritus of the world from getting into gutters but for the most part. Unless you can get rid of that. I don't really see it happening. The other concern here. would be that. It's probably not as much power as you might be thinking the sort of like a roofs worth of water traveling down a roofs worth of height. Now that might not be the case for a really tall building So maybe like a skyscraper could could generate a significant amount of power that way basically at egan imagine a hydroelectric plant not as like water traveling downward but as the weight of the water that is sitting on top of the water pushing the water at the bottom through something. It's that weight of water that that can not just turn a turbine but like turn it a lot and really fast with a lot of energy so that difference between the height of the water and the you know the amount of sort of pressure that's built up on top of the water. that's getting squeezed. Out of a hole at the bottom is what you're what you're concerned about so you need a lot at any a lot of water stacked up in your gutter to turn a turban and i don't know that you'd get a ton but also my main concern is stuff getting stuck in it and yoga. Y'all got clean out your gutters. Sometimes shove hose up there to get it all that stuff. All those leaves that are packed up in the down spout out. And you don't want something in there blocking anything up any more than it already is. That's basically what i found too. Is that People are looking into what's called micro hydro electric power system. so that's anywhere from generating five to one hundred kilowatts but mostly in rivers or streams. Yup for all the reasons that you were explaining where a lot of the structures that we build to collect water are not regular enough to to make it worth it. Material costs maintenance costs or like even the power generation and needing to siphon it off to a home that exists like would it be worth it for everyone to have their own like gutter based mini hydroelectric system funk. Even though like that idea sounds very cool and modern and the revolution like could happen But but like practically it there are too many limitations with how Even micro hydro electric power systems work and need to be set up and maintained right or that to be a great idea. Yeah i think. A lot of micro hydro his earliest. Last time. i paid attention to it was largely for people who lived far away from electricity infrastructure. Who could generate power that way if it's hard to do solar or it's hard to do other things you could you know feeling like dense forests with a lot of water you can generate power that way and and be able to have lights and laptops and stuff. Even if you're way off the grid. What i learned today was. I didn't need to work as hard as i did for this episode because this is not my area of expertise and i worked really hard to do it but i should have just remember at that. Hank knows everything would ask the science couch. Your question falls on twitter at sideshow tangents were. We'll tweet up topics for upcoming episodes every week. Thank you to at jeff. Road dot v.

"Right now. We're gonna take a quick break and then it will be time for the fact off Bag everybody it's time for the fact off. Our panelists have brought science facts to present an attempt to blow my mind. After they have presented their facts. I will judge them and award. Hank bucks anyway. I see fit and the winner will get a tick talk made from their content to decide who goes first in our fact off. I have trivia question for you to answer as sarah has mentioned. Elephants are big. I also mentioned that. Sometimes the were elephant refers to other animals that also happen to be very big and the elephant bird is no exception elephant. Birds are extinct rats lights which are related to kiwi birds and ostriches and september twenty eighteen. The vol room bay titan one genera of elephant bird was determined by scientists to be the heaviest bird to have ever existed. How much did this three meter tall bird way. I'm trying to think of other big birds. Because and i just embattled guessing weights in general really. I've got nothing going for me. And i want sam to go first so that i can go above or below deceptively heavy but also have no concept of weight for height or anything like that. So i'll say four hundred pounds. Four hundred pounds. Okay i am going to say three fifty sixteen hundred power. Oh okay that's a big bird bird. Birds are actually usually deceptively light. Because they have to fly but not these big birds they got big bigger they can kick a hole in you and that sam gets to choose who goes. I think i'll go first about that. Please do if you watch cartoons. You've probably seen the following scenario million times which you've alluded to already a big elephant stomping around being a tough guy until teeny little mouse scampers. By at which point the elephant hops up on its back legs. Orland wanna chair or something and says oh get it away from me. Get it away from me. And this is such a specific image that you'd have to assume that it comes from real life and indeed. There are stories dating back to ancient greece. The elephants fear mice because they can crawl up their noses when they're asleep thought to be the original version. Right that's why the greeks thought this was a thing. Well some greek guy wrote a book where he said he saw half of the elder elder it. Actually i think it was fun or another thought. Is that the mice will speak in elephant like as their scampering around feet. Yeah but it's not really true. So everyone from scientists to the mythbusters tested this legend and found that elephants don't really seem to give a heck about a my mouse at all. Oh dang it you know they can be spooked by things running passer feet sometimes. Yeah but it's not really that consistent it's definitely not just my seduce it. However there is another teeny swarming furry creature that elephants of both african and asian variety are afraid of on an almost cartoon like level be so while be can't sting an elephant in most places on its thick hide. Bobby's can apparently like ants fly into the trunk of an elephant and stick them all up or fly into elephants eisenstein walla and i guess they know to fly into their noser into there is to get them so elephants understandably do not like this and they have been observed freaking out and fleeing at even the sound of buzzing swarm of while. This is sad for elephants elephant. Researchers saw an opportunity to exploit this behavior to help keep elephants and the people who live near elephants safe so elephants big like we said a million times and they do whatever they want and sometimes doing whatever they want means stopping all over. Crops are breaking down fences that keep livestock in or like going into cities or they shouldn't be in hurting people and getting hurt themselves. I suppose to you pretty much. The only way to stop this from happening is by like digging a big boat or building a giant wall or killing the elephant and none of those are greats and not everyone has the resources to build that stuff or dig moats Was it probably be really bad for the environment to have giant walls and moats all over whale. Offense led sure so scientists who was working on this problem. Dr king came up with an idea to surround the perimeter of farmlands with beehives which proved like incredibly successful and then eventually a bigger project called the elephant and b's project was born where farmers all over africa given bunch of beehives Which keep the elephants away. And they produce honey that the farmers and sell as well And as a twenty twenty. This method of elephant controls used in nineteen countries toward off african and asian elephants so keeping bees and something. Everybody has the resources for either. So there's a cheaper and easier alternative. That's been being developed right now elephants. It seems like have hated us for so long that they've developed the ability to sense of bees alarm fair moon which is what makes other bees come and swarm and help a his in trouble sting so right. Now they're doing fairmont tests that so far have successfully repelled twenty-five of twenty nine african elephants and like one of the tested so they like isolating fair moans. And then putting intellect jill that you can spray around your farm to keep elephants away from it instead of having actual b.'s. Fact sam thanks. It's got surprised. They're not afraid of mice but they are afraid of bees. Yeah seems like elephants are afraid of freak and everything they might as well be afraid of mice. Airfreight everything else mostly. They're afraid to stuff getting in their nose. I get yeah social insects. That just really get in their holes siri. What's your fact. Well nothing to do a social insects or whole well so one of the distinctive features of african elephants. Is there grace super wrinkly skin if not very pliable so it's loose around their knees and next and other joints to help them move around and a big adaptive benefit of these wrinkles is that mud and water can seep into them rather than rolling off smooth skin and this helps keep african elephants cool and a thick layer of mud. Can act like sunscreen and keep parasites from biting and the cracks in african elephants. Skin look kind of like dried cracked mud or clay or salt flats and the way that works is that ground used to be saturated with water but over time. Water evaporates so the clay or whatever shrinks and these random ish crack patterns form. And there's actually a lot of scientific study into this crack formation in a lot of detail. The mechanical environmental forces. And for a long time. This is what researchers assumed. What's going on with african elephants skin. Basically they live in a dry environment so they're skin doesn't stay moist enough shrinks and cracks. Which is what we've also experienced as humans who live in montana if we don't start but when some researchers stimulated african elephant skin shrinkage with a computer program in two thousand eighteen paper. It didn't look right. There are too many cracks facing weird directions and the wrinkle pattern was off so there had to be a different explanation and the simulation that looks most like real elephants. Skin was really thick skin that eventually bent under its own weight so this combined with a careful look at a tissue sample help them realize that african elephants hang onto layers and layers and layers of dead skin. Their whole lives wayne the surface of their skin down and creating this iconic wrinklies texter that helps them survive so whatever you do don't exfoliating an elephant. They have a great adaptation going on and their skin has completely different needs than ours so they just hold onto their dead skin cells as like just keratin site type things forever and it just like layers and layers layers up. Yeah so baby. Elephants are less ringgold. They have like the initial wrinkles around their joints from loose skin but then as they get older and older they get old and crackly just because you got chunks of dead skin on their interest so it's basically like the elephants whole body is just like the foot pat of a dog. Yeah just like keratin is layers. That kind of compressed down and weird and dirty I wanna touch one now. I've touched an elephant name either. They looked so soft. But they're not Has anybody here. Touched elephant.

"Schultz hello. I have been thinking the odds. Are that if superpowers developed that. Those superpowers would almost universally be pretty useless. There would be some people who got super strength and laser vision. But almost everyone would get something completely mundane and boring. And so i would like to tell you that. I think what my superpower would be based on my personality is i probably would be able to Grow really big or really small but like not like really really big. Like i probably be able to get like maybe six foot six. Oh i needed to. And i could go down to like five six if i needed to and i didn't that'd be fun. I don't think it would be particularly useful except that. I could be tall and look over fences. You can fit into a lot more clothes like if more clothes. I visited any clothes. That will be amazing. Yeah would be a really good power. Actually wow yeah that'd be such a fun power and then one on airplanes. I'd be as small as they can get Could be more comfy. I wish you could get like toddlers is so that would be even more fun. I mean everybody knows that my pet thing they humans should be four feet tall. I sent him a ride. It up but it would be so fun derided like that again where you don't even think about legroom. You're just like sitting fully on the chair. Yeah so that's mine. Sarah what do you think your pathetic power would be. I have mine. I'm ready for this question. I don't know why you're born ready. It would be be able to catch anything like that. I drop within an arm's reach like spiderman the spiderman movie it's knocked over not web-slinging or anything like nothing out of reach but if i like dropping oreo as i'm trying to eat it it's fallen out of my mouth. It can catch it again. Or if i drop a glass of water it could spill but catch the glass. That's the important thing. Those are some of the most impressive moments that i have when i drop an oreo and then catch it. I'm like wow that guy who beyond hand-eye coordination to just like my body knew how important this cookie was three. I couldn't drop it. Sam over pathetic superpower. You like to share. I think it would be nice. I would lake to be able to make everyone around me. Dislike five percent. Calmer so that no one was ever mean to me. That's perfect yeah. Maybe more than five times. The super heroes can like manipulate people's minds. Yeah but like you never think of that on a sliding scale where it's like. I can manipulate people's minds but really mostly just make people a tiny bit more chill. Yeah i think that'd be nice. Oh yeah just enough sleep. Never have to worry about somebody like stranger saying something rude to me. Everybody's just calm. We can call. You can call you weed man. Yeah i was thinking. Kool sam cole sam. The human marijuana ally cul de sarah can be never drops. It could be the amazing little bit expanding and shrinking man every week. Here on sasha tangents we get together to try to one up amaze and delight each other with science facts while also trying to stay on topic but we are great at that which is why we named the podcast. The way we did. Our panelists are playing for glory. And for hank bucks which i'll be awarding as we play and at the end of the episode one of them will be crowned the winner and what are their facts will be selected for my tick talk. That was always. We introduce this week's topic with the traditional science poem this week from me for people standing with their hands on a thing. Each one has a blindfold tied on with a string. One says well. This thing is clearly a wall. I've spent plenty of time. I've now felt at all a wall says another. I know we can't see but there's no doubt in my mind that this is a tree a tree. The third laughs. You must be a dope. This is a rope. The last person laughs in his big belly quakes. You think this is a rope. It's alive it's a snake but the fifth person watching with is on included says. I'm way over here. And i have concluded when you only feel part of what. They're it's irrelevant. When you see everything you see an elephant. Oh i like that. The topic for the day is elephants. Siri what are elephants. Elephants are big big friends there the largest living land animal. They are virus. They mostly eat plants. I know their key body features are usually big ears their trunk they can move around unused to grab stuff or drink water more or like snorkel air and their long curved ivory tusks which are modified teeth and have been used by humans in a lot of like materials manufacturing in his. Why a big part of why elephants are endangered. Because we like. We liked that them. Pearly white so much that we just keep stealing them. It's a wild thing to me that for so long every billiard ball was made of ivory ya like. Just what a terrible terrible thing like. That's the only way we could think to do that. And that there's a lot of billiard balls yeah plastic stinks and a lot of ways but it's a heck of a lot. This is what i always say when people talk about fossil fuels and incandescent light bulbs. Emily look we used to burn wales. Yeah so like one step at time you guys. We stopped burning wales and like plastics bad. But we used to make billiard balls out of dead elephants anyway so elephants are big billiard ball machines creek right out but it seems like elephants. Aren't that related to anything else. Left says not a lot of like weird fuzzy area where it's like. Is that an elephant. But i guess the fossil record there. I'm sure that there is our mammoths. Were mammoths elephants. Yeah so elephants The family is elephant That includes all large mammals that we would call elephants mammoths and actually so they're only three living species of elephant. There's the african bush elephant african forest elephant and the asian elephant and asian. Elephants are actually more closely related to woolly mammoths than they are to african elephants because of when everything diverged. Cool very weird is the word elephant comes from it. Sounds like it's gotta come from somewhere but it doesn't come from anywhere no oh sister so We as humans used to use the same word for both elephant ivory so we really did think of elephants as piano key billiard ball machines harsh and so in ancient greek for example aleph us e. l. e. p. h. a. s. meant elephant or ivory interchangeably. And this is one of the words that probably the only one. I've seen this in this etymological dictionary. That i often refer to. That did not come from a indo european language it was likely from venetian or possibly say in script for elephant which makes sense because there weren't elephants wandering around in europe so no one would have come up with a word for it and once european started colonizing other areas of the world than there are like. What's this. I want the steph from it. I'm going to use that word. Yeah slap able on and be like well. That's a that's a noodle cow. This is very different from other stuff. Like the he'd be like well that when we do. We do not have a name for that. I can't really put a european name on ad. That one's real weird. Yeah all right now that we know what an elephant is. It's time to move onto the quiz portion of our show this.

I got everyone together so that they could watch me right in the email. In a panic we get It's like a private hanks channel livestream productivity stream. Except we've already done our work and we're just watching. It was a little bit understood. Because the person i was emailing who desperately needed the email partner rachel who works at this is the way you're justifying it to yourself though that's it. Yeah because that way it was like at at least one person aside from me is going to benefit from houston in this email though. I'm sure as soon as this podcast ends. Rachel will be like. I cannot believe did to me the day probably to create a bunch of extra work. When i've been working so hard to not have extra work. Oh it's my fault but it's more in past may's fault than current meets fault isn't it. Always the is it always. I feel like passed. Me is like the ultimate he's got he's just like philip power moves ruse like. Oh you didn't want to do that will you have to 'cause i didn't pass me is also Over ambitious i think thinks highly of future meets future means just kinda regular just kind of okay. He's like all you got this. You can wake up early for the first time in your life and do all that homeward. How was your past. Self sam awful. I've been trying to wake up early for like two years. How do you do. You have any tips on me. I've got this'll kill it. There's no way if you do this one thing. You will absolutely wake up early every day. Oh no i know what you're going to say. All you have to do is have a child. Okay yeah no. It's the only thing that ever worked for me. But i get up every morning at seven o'clock and today i got up and my son was yelling help. Which wasn't great help. Help help and i ran in to his room. I was like. I think this is funny. But it's not what's wrong and he's like my tummy hurts and then puke to punch. He needed actual help and it was very sad and he's been pathetic all day long there it is. That's the reason. I didn't send the email until cy show tangents time. Because i have a sick child. I'll blame him. All is forgiven every week. here on. Sasha tangents we get together to try to up amaze and delight each other with science facts while also trying to stay on topic.

Then they both were able to get go away with the gold medal and be like i won this medal with my best friend us so jumper. That's really sweet. Yeah it was lovely. I have like a big long beautiful story. But last night i had just happened to be watching the women's weightlifting dead lifting. I guess maybe it is. I don't really know. And whoever was shooting it was like a cinematography genius. They were like getting like these beautiful shots of like their hands. Clenching the bar and like capturing the perfect moment on their faces or they're like we'll and they were doing all these like when it's a blurry and then they make it not blurry anymore and they do zoom. Yeah lots of those beautiful and consult watching so that was a great one. Because i'm on talk of been following the. Us women's rugby sevens team. These women like on my take for you. Page all the time. And i'm seeing them and like i have a para social relationship with them now and i answered one of their science questions. I did watch their game against australia where they were behind to win that match and i was watching it live which i very rarely do and i just sort of because i was a big fan of these people's talks with got i got really invested in it and then luckily i wasn't watching the one that they lost which happened at like three in the morning so yeah. Let's all go to the olympics. next time. how about that. I always forget that. I it like four years from now. I'm going to be like. Yeah the olympics. Nah that's not for me and it's a weekend and i'm like i love this paper every week here on side tangents we get together to try to one up amaze and delight each other with science facts while also trying to stay on topic.

"Panelists have all brought science facts to present to me in an attempt to blow my mind and after they have presented their facts. I will judge them and award. Hank bucks anyway. I see fit but to decide who goes i. I have a trivia question for you one of the earliest surgeries. We have evidence of his trip panning or boring a hole into the skull to treat cranial diseases or release pressure from an injury and at times throughout history trip panning was pretty popular and northeastern france. There is a burial site that dates back to sixty five thousand bc where several skulls with japan holes were found. What fraction of the skulls uncovered had undergone tree panning surgery. I feel like that'd be something. They had just do at the drop of a hat because they could do it. So thirty to thirty two percent. It's like way too many for me. but maybe i have. I mean we just learned about three medical tools. That sound like very bad. I'm going to say five percent. Well let's say thirty three percent. Oh man gosh exactly one third of jesus road sam. You couldn't have been much closer and you get to decide who goes first And that's of that's not like of like three skulls as forty of one hundred twenty skulls. Well i guess when every Win all you got a hammer every problem once like a now. So that's some holes in some ads every head looks like a nail. I'd like sorry to go.

"Hello i'm in space right now as you can't tell from my sound effects definitely intentional. Not because i'm sitting in an empty room in a corner like assad boy spaces. I mean this is the problem. What is space flight spaceflight. Apparently is if you just go high enough in the atmosphere that a commercial plane can't fly if you go a little bit farther than that where it's like a little bit thinner and harder to breathe if you were outside of vehicle than you're in space basically right but also i am in space right now because everything is space and i made of space spaces all spaces everywhere. This is that like there's outer space but like everything is space in the earth is a giant spaceship and we shouldn't be trying so hard to get there because we're already there.

"It turns out a. It'll steidl stop eventually. I brand ultimately it turns out that it's better to dislike like if you have a bunch of money as better to like sit around and get taken care of for eight hours than it is to get to to london really fast pamuk sense. I guess yeah. Can i ask a question that might be too complicated to answer. Wow why does a sonic boom. Why is it happened. I'll try the basics. Basics is that like the jet is making a noise is but the jet is pushing through the the wavefront of the noise so all of the noise as as a plane is traveling faster and faster. It's sort of doppler. Effect is making it so that all of the the noise that's coming from the engines and going forward is getting compressed into a more and more compressed area because it's like the noises happening and these are actual physical waves in the air so that noise is happening but they're getting pushed into a smaller and smaller physical space. And then eventually when you break speedo sound that wavefront of really compressed sound waves like breaks apart and get like. There's just a lot of a lot of turbulence that occurs because of that and that is just that that becomes a very loud noise so there were some grains of truth here the geese not a thing but there in one thousand nine hundred seven. There was some thought that there was this like homing pigeon race and they had the pensions had to go over. Some of the same area that the concord is going over and it seemed like they lost a lot more pigeons that year. Oh it's like didn't arrive. They didn't die just got confused and didn't go to the rallies and the ones that did arrive arrived more slowly than usual. So that to me is like there's not a lot of strong data on that one. Yeah and as far as cloudiness. That was just made up. Though there there is like a very special cloud that can form in the very low pressure areas when there is sonic boom happening when there's hypersonic travel happening because the as the as the air creates this vacuum it condenses. A bunch of water are families. We're going into the break with zero zero tie after the break. It'll be time for the fact off Welcome back everybody. it's time for the fact off. Our panelists have brought science facts to present to me in an attempt to blow my mind after they have presented all their facts. I will judge them and award. Hank bucks anyway.

Armies are a series of waves generated by the displacement of a lot of water usually by earthquakes volcanic eruptions and the circum-pacific belt also known as the ring of fire is a loop around the pacific ocean famous for earthquakes and active volcanoes. What percentage of soon armies occur within the pacific ring of fire. I mean i was gonna say a hundred percent. Oh wow i seems like ce`namas only happening one varies like a very specific part of the world. One hundred percent is a is an unusual in nature. don't tend to get one hundred percents. Well one hundred percent of clouds in the sky hank so you know is the cloud. Oh no i guess. Probably clouds underground somewhere to also. There's hey the there are some stadiums but have clouds in them because they're so big that the sky is not the sky. If it's in stadium walk is the sky anything. That's not the ground. Yeah it is the sky. And i do i. Do i have sky in my mouth. That's that's like the next. You have stardust within you. You've sky in your balance bichat. Just wake up every morning and just the sky bite out of the sky.

"Dj experience a good one. I'm letter try skippy. I was trying to think of one. Like i can't even think of sounds anymore. What is a radio now. I like chewing on. I think like a good taco. I like chew on it and then swallowing because it's not not many choose like a crunchy taco. Like a soft talk. I don't like. I almost never think of any normal food as something. That is good to chew on. Slow always like straws or lake numb and stuff. I'm not really a big gum fan. I didn't i didn't have a good answer. Neither am i until. I heard tacos but i i agree but disagree because the best chew experience is the is the fresh crunchy taco like the crunch than the soft. All that's an amazing ju- texture. Such a huge part of a foods. So i don't really like beans there too pasty. That's long my mouth but other other foods you think all foods should be crunchy as i think. Now what. Bush mean about the being texture. That's not good. Oh that's textures. I also love beans a lot so again. We agree and disagree. Isn't that just the way of the world every week here on tangents we get together to try to one of amazing into lady that was science facts while trying to stay on topic but the podcast is called tangents so we aren't always great at that. Our panelists are playing for glory. And for hank bucks which i'll be awarding as we play and at the end of the episode one of them will be crowned the winner and as always. We're going to introduce this week's topic with the traditional science poem. This week is going to be for me. You wanna hear. My science foam no toilet flush so often in life. As you go on living you have to replenish your energy. A tiny snack or a whole thanksgiving. You need to fight against entropy but food can be hard or stringy or tough. It isn't just mush in your tongues. not enough miser. People are fisher crocs. All of us need our mouth rocks. Mouth rox help us form our words without them. We look a little absurd but mostly they're useful for when we eat pizza or wheat or carrots or meat miser people fisher crocs. All of us need our mouth rocks. I love that that was like.

"But that's then they connected the plant to a robotic arm edit. They were able to get it to pick up a little wire and it's just just so you can get a headline out of it. That's the whole point. I guess yeah fair and vitaly round number. Three scientists at mit in the us connected electrodes to the stems leaves and ground of potted plant using the plants own internal chemistry to send signals to a robot attached to the pot. The robot has a key part that allows it to respond to what the plant is feeling. What is that part. Is it a a set of wheels that moves the pot when the plant senses light be a heated wall that turns on when the plane gets cold or see an arm that transports water to the plant. When it is thirsty. Okay then it's one of those in regardless it's cool some plants can be friend all my gosh. Could you imagine how how would help. People that just cannot keep a plan to live In the robot's hands heated wall and so boring al's i feel like c. As watering right. I think that would probably be the first place that like. You know if. I was smarter in a scientist. I would try to make that work. I think it saying. They're all very plausible. Though what the verse one was a was a set of wheels that moves the pa when the plant since his light may be a wooden chea. Want to move when the plant wasn't syncing light will that's like maybe the thing is if it if it's not the right level of light and the wheels wheel it to get the right level light. The answer was though. I believe when the plant is syncing like all right. We're going to calibrate. It moves the pot when the plant senses like Suspicious i think i think it's the watering one to just because that feels like plants sense that really obviously but the other thing that they really obviously as light. Nah nah look. I don't know why they had the plant move when it sends too late. I guess just because they could as it can figure out to do it when it didn't since late. Exactly yeah the or if the plant is in light it just drives itself around forever searching searching. I love this so much. Maybe like moves toward the light. I don't know i don't think it does. I think it just moves when it's light but the there's there's a name for this system it's called the l. Awan e. elo wfan. So it sounds very elvis. And i yes i- anytime i looked plant. Just drive itself around. It makes me really happy someday. Plants will have cars. That is a little more scary. I like the tiny little cars. That's cute yeah. Someday plants have cars and they will just drive faster and faster as long as there is sun the so much crash into each other. And that's the thing that finally stops us and gets us on trains again. Yeah just shove a bunch of sunflowers on the autobahn and let them go. Well that means that overall none of you did particularly well but no one is poorly. Scores are actually with one point. Sam with one point and sarah with zero hank bucks next. We're going to take a short break and then it will be time for another game. Welcome back everybody. It's time for contact. Lenses have a long history including one contraption proposed in sixteen thirty-seven by rene descartes that involved filling a tube with water and placing the tube in contact with your. I know don't time. Yeah come on. Descartes thought you were smart. Fortunately scientists and doctors have come up with a lot of advances since then and many of us have been able to correct vision. Thanks to the lenses that we put directly onto our is which. I haven't done since high school because i just didn't like how it felt. But of course technology continues to advance and scientists have developed ways to integrate electronics into our contact lenses. So that they can do more than just correct our vision. The following are three stories of cyborg contact lens advancement for medical purposes but only one of them is real which one of them is it. Are you ready. I think so maybe fact number..

"Science facts about dogs but only one of them is real at three panelists have to figure out either about deduction are wild. Guess which the facts is true if they do they get a hank buck. If you are tricked then you do not get a hang. Fuck and i'll take it for myself and i'll use it to buy a probably a coffee. African wild dogs or like go and rick dees are pack dogs that are related to domestic dogs. They are endangered but there's population in botswana and observing african wild dogs getting ready to leave their resting spot and go on the hunt. Researchers observed something unusual about how the pack coordinated their activity which is the following thing that they observed number one to coordinate their departure the dominant male or female lately bites the tail of another member of the pack. Who will then go on and bite. Another member of the pack stale. And so until everybody's little but has been bitten and they know that it's time to go. That is one of the facts that may or may not be true fact number two to optimize their groups. Movements pack sends out scouts to find foods but the scouts. Don't just look for food. They also take periodic pitstops to p leaving behind a scented guide for the rest of the pack to find them or fact number three to decide on whether or not they will get moving. The dogs gathered together and they vote on whether or not they're going to go hunt by exhaling loudly through their noses. If enough dogs vote yes moves out and hans. They think dog should vote. I think fishing vote. The facts presented are tale by telephone p guiding guides or vote by sneeze. Which helping the faster you think is the fat. I really wanna say three is so tempting. Isn't it dog democracy. i'd say to. Oh you already you already. You can see them deliberate a little bit. Yeah wait until. Sarah talks worse. You knows anything. They would need a vital. There's tales because they can see what their eyeballs right. But i dunno dogs get distracted to. Maybe it's like. Hey here's more. Specific signal tribal thing buddy up and by the but but he got them by the button. That's how it started the p. thing feels too obvious but i don't know maybe maybe the obvious the problem is frankie. Is that talk myself out of the correct one. A lot of those. So don't listen to me. Sam strategy is completely because it sounds it makes perfect sense. All yeah. Sneezing sounds fake but finds it does but it just it sounds just ridiculous enough to also be true. Are their animals. Vote even like primates. I mean are there animals vote. I mean in this case maybe the dogs do. But that's all i got. I haven't i haven't done a bunch of research on animal democracy but you could say that one in three are also similar behaviors in that. It's like it's showing like a clear line of intelligence and social behavior. I've i've just do animals vote and Yes against answer because they can make decisions and so at some point in in animal complexity there like were not going to make decisions alone. We're gonna make decisions together. And so then. That's voting him. His google save their. They leaned more republican democrat. I think i'm going to have to go. Vote by sneeze vote by sneeze. I sam sam slide. Right in the boat by sneeze. I'm gonna go at the sam and save by sneeze. Because i want it to be true so far by going against the pack. I'm one for two. So i'll go with to the answer. Everyone is vote by sneeze. And it's not an the coolest thing about this is that it's not a direct democracy so if one of the leaders of the pack sneezes it takes fewer total sneezes to get the pack to move so this this they figure this out because they were watching the dogs and they would they they before they left in the morning they just started to sneeze. They'd be like they're like. Why are the dogs sneezing. But they in there like well. They're only like each sneezing. What this is very weird. So they collected data from five different packs and they observed sneezing and the groups that were more likely to go and hunt and the researchers found that if dominant male or female in the group sneezed fewer sneezes were needed for the rest of the group before they moved out to hunt and from the results they concluded. That sneezing is a kind of that. Allows the pack to decide on whether or not it's time to go hunt. These dogs can count. who's counting..

"All right. Everybody it's time for the fact off. Sam sarah have brought me science facts to present to me an attempt to blow my mind and after they presented their facts. I will judge them and award. The hank bucks anyway. I see fit but decide who goes i. I have trivia question what year was the first. Us patent for an electric vehicle with rechargeable batteries. Can i'm gonna go out on a limb. Because i think i remember in my research for this episode and i know so little pap electric that there were electric taxis like way before the modern electric vehicle revolution happens. I'm going to say nineteen thirties. Eighteen thirty okay in my in my research for this in my even less understanding. I know that there were like electric cars that they were using it. I break like land speed records and that was a long time ago. Like the nineteen hundreds. But the rechargeable part. I don't know when we came up with rechargeable batteries song gonna say the nineteen sixth nineteen sixties. That is a decade. Okay this find the answer. Truly remarkably is eighteen ninety so sorry wheels that one but only look with. No one expected any of us to know anything about this topic coming in we. We set standards correctly. We entered into the episode but yeah apparently Electric cars were senator. The first idea before internal combustion him happened like this seems like how we're going to do it but then found gasoline is really good at storing energy and that created a long time of that being in charge and now maybe it's time to exit that era. How did they recharged batteries back. Then do you know. Like did you know that returnable batteries have been around long Boy i did not bet that they probably just like roy. You're doing great. It's great to be anna anna where you tour is useless and i usually. We should put a warning and no one actually gets like wants to learn all right. Sarah that you get to decide who goes first. Oh well i'll go first and pull off the band aid so on a fifteen day. Space shuttle mission that launched in february nineteen ninety six. The crew ran a weird experiment. They deployed a large spherical satellite. That flung out behind the shuttle connected by conducting cable which was a copper braid wrapped around a nylon string encased in teflon. then kevlar and more nylon. This cable was called tether and it was twenty kilometers or around twelve point five miles long. So the satellite was flying in was enrolling mile after mile when suddenly it snapped experiment over in it took some further analysis to determine exactly why it snapped but it wasn't from tension it melted from super high electric current thirty five hundred volts through tiny air bubble holes. What this is the part. I don't really understand so there. There's like holes in the material and then the the current was very high a very small space and so turned into plasma and melted so this is obviously a big day in space experiments and the media viewed it as an expensive failure. One really. I was too well as as you may have heard. I was born in one thousand nine hundred eighty older than you really. You're a member something from the nineties. While i'm glad you remember it. Because it's just one of several experiments to try and generate electricity in space this way and the whole idea of space tether is to generate electricity. Like a dynamo. Where and this is where the understanding gets whibley. There's one magnet rotating in another magnets magnetic field which then generates a current of electrons so the rotating magnet is a little ball satellite and the big magnetic field is the earth like generated by the earth so the idea is to use the magnetic field of our planet to power things whether it's like a space shuttle or satellite in orbit but there was too much power thereof. We did too good or there was like some kind of flaw. In the device that made the current run unevenly so that ripped itself apart or melted. It's yes that is what happened. I think it was a materials engineering problem. So as the current was building higher and higher they were like greet. This is wonderful that there's a material problem and so it got to concentrated in one part of the tether and then melted and capped off. That's wild and as far as i can tell. This mission was a failure and there have been a variety of different failures. That are like pulling eyars get stuck. It's just been bad. Conditions to deploy together. It seems like a very materials heavy experiment fling. Something out on a really long rope. But there have been smaller successful implementations of this idea like the small expendable deployer system which was a five hundred meter tether attached to a smaller satellite. So some researchers are still exploring this with little guys like cubesats which are ten centimeters cubed and even though it sounds like kind of a wacky ridiculous way to generate electricity and won't fulfill dreams of being a big solution to spacecraft propulsion. Anything big like that. It works and could be good for something like inclusion. I could draw. I do love that. It got it was just like well. It's working so well. Look at all the electricity and then dislike the electricity who've just the thing Sammy was working really really well. It was working really well but also it was not working well at all because it they had planned for it to not melt itself and did that self so that is a failure state. You've got a harness. The actress better so like it was working but like the whole system had us in that. It's just like if if your christmas lights outside. I don't know the cable melts in pops and breaks than it's like. There's something wrong with the system. Even though if the electricity flowed correctly you would have nice. Pretty lights sam. What are you got whether you're an actor in an action movie about to deliver a killer one liner and inspirational speaker. Trying to motivate roomful of board office workers or politician whipping crowd of potential voters up There's one trick you gotta note to keep people hanging on your every word the dramatic pause and it turns out some an will know the strict do so breen. Oh mirus bracket ice deis. I'll just call them. The fish from now on is a species of elephant fish that live in coastal basins in west africa. They like other elephant. Fish have an electric organ. That lesson discharge electric fields so mostly seems like elephant. Fish used this as like an extra since for when they can't see like if they're in muddy water but this type of elephant fish use their electric discharges to communicate.
