GIFS from my last video - How To Find Water Bears

Take a look at #4. Embrace the fail. I think it’s the best part of the video.

We could have faked it. We could have pretended that we found Tardigrades on our first try. But where’s the fun in that?

Making mistakes is a natural part of science.

I’m glad that Ben, Valeria, and I didn’t find Water Bears during the shoot. So that face I’m making in #6 is a genuine face of celebration.

When do you science and other life stuff, don’t worry about mistakes. Learn from those mistakes and keep moving forward.

Don’t worry, Cthulhu is still fast asleep and no one has heard from the Kraken for centuries. This nightmarish maw is the beak of a female colossal squid, one that weighed 770 lbs (350 kg), measured nearly 11.5 feet long ( 3.5 m) and was recently dissected by scientists during a live webcast from the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa in Wellington, New Zealand. The squid was found by Captain John Bennett and his crew in Antarctic waters back in December 2013. She’s only the second intact colossal squid specimen ever recovered, providing an extraordinary opportunity for scientists to learn more about this mysterious species.

The squid’s eyes measured nearly 14 inches in diameter. The better to see you with, my dear. She also had three hearts, all the better to love you to tiny, bite-size pieces.
