    Little late to this video but thank you for all the videos these past 10 years. Wow, it's been 10 years. Time flew by. While I still love science videos, I do hope you can find the time to upload some 2veritasium videos. I guess I am at the age where reflections and comments on social issues we face today are more appealing. Thanks again!

    First up: Congratulations for 10 years on this platform. I haven't discovered you too long ago but I'm thoroughly enjoying your videos. I really like your way of presentation and the topics you're choosing to tell us about. That being said, the video I enjoyed the most was about the one way speed of light. On so many occasions i thought that this new aspect would solve the dilema only to be proven wrong about 20 seconds later. I never thought I'd get so excited about something like the speed of light. Long story short: Thanks for having become a video maker and I'm eager to follow your further steps.

    Seriously, the reasons I keep watching this channel is because you are one of the person that save my life. I mean, I born and live in religious community, and after I grew up and see the world, I keep questioning everything, and I just couldn't find the answers from religions, and I just don't know who to ask. And someday your video " The illusion of Truth " Just pop into my screen . And that's it. Now I know, science is the way to understand reality. Thank you. It would be really nice if you keep doing what you're doing ( science + psychology ) and help us understand this reality. And big thanks for the great team behind the camera. 🍻

    I very excited when i watch your "two way speed of light", yes every one of your video is always talk to the bottom of the problem, to the fundamental information, that's why i love this channel, but on that one video, destin is also there, it's add another perspective, and he's someone i recognize, michelle "vsauce" was also have been here, anyway the point is i like those collaboration video, i wish i could watch more of that kind.

I like your videos that just talk about unanswered questions and offer up possible reasons. I'd like to see more videos about stopping aging. Keep up the great work.

    There is a 𝐅𝐋𝐀𝐖 in video which might be right if i say now, Every letters is appearing for 5s, so basically if u just forward the video 5s everytime (from beginning to end) u will always see all letters, without actually watching full video.😊

    Derek, the the new millennium's James Burke and "Connections", especially the new Potash episode. I can't believe it has been nearly 10 years since I've been watching you. You look much younger without the beard, much younger even than a father of 3. I had a beard in the mid 70s, when I was in my 20s, but it scared little babies and dogs and made me look much older. I had middle aged strangers offer their seats to the "old man" I appeared to be, even after using Grecian Formula to get rid of the grey. Congrats!

    4:21 this is probably one of the most powerfull adviceces, some times is important be unaware, to not know, to be just slightly ignorant about what you are doing, so the fear does not drag and stops you.

    Happy 10th year Veritasium, congratulations to your decade long journey and long live! I've only discovered your channel recently although I've partly watched some of your videos in the past. I'm from the Philippines and also a big fan of science and technology. What particularly caught my attention throughout this video is about the translations to other languages. If you somehow want to have your videos translated to our dialect (Filipino), I would like to help out. Thank you and more power to your channel!

I'm telling my mother: I know him, I've got a picture with him! :D (I was so proud of myself! Haha)

    Thank you for explaining how and why you make videos! It would be nice to see some home-made science demonstrations with everyday household things and substances (fun for kids and parents... and anyone who enjoys science really!) I like the way a narrow linear flow of water from a tap can be bent by putting a statically charged biro near it. Or how a helium balloon can 'pretend to be in zero-G' when it has lost enough helium to be the same buoyancy as the air (I had fun videoing this as I was trying to spin it like a flying saucer but it wanted to be vertical not horizontal!) Or how big a bubble you can blow... I tried blowing hemispherical bubbles on my desk -they grew quite big like a foot or more in diameter. There must be loads of fun sort-of scientific things you can do at home.
