He's a very smart man with an interesting and educational show but he's really annoying on social media imo
The real reason it couldn't exist is thanks to the "Square, cubed" law. It states that every time something doubles in size it triples in density. Eventually you just become so large and heavy and dense that you collapse in on yourself and die.
@Gadget, but that does theoretically mean that larger creatures could exist on planets with lower gravity, I believe.
@Marida Cruz, yes and It also supports the theory that godzilla comes from the sea, since the buoyancy would help counteract the affects of his density for longer.
@Gadget, come to think of it, I think Shin Godzilla actually handled this problem by showing that his own size was causing him to bleed to death when he first appeared, so returned to the sea, and by the time he appeared again, he'd evolved to regenerate cells as rapidly as possible, and got energy from internal nuclear fission.
@Marida Cruz, haha I don't know enough about godzilla to talk about any of that, one thing that I never got to do when I was younger was read any godzilla comics. I was more into my superheros at the time.
@Gadget, Shin Godzilla is a very recent Japanese movie that's more or less a re-imagining of the original Godzilla movie, where Godzilla is less of a protector of Earth and more of a walking natural disaster. It's an incredibly good movie, and although Godzilla is essentially the villain, I'd still definitely reccomend it to any Godzilla fan. In that movie, Godzilla has his original backstory of being born from mutation caused by nuclear radiation, and as a result his cells are constantly undergoing an incredibly accelerated version of natural selection. This means that although he starts as a barely-defined and almost blob-like aquatic creature, he quickly evolves and mutates over the course of the movie, with his final form being possibly the most terrifying incarnation of Godzilla that there's ever been.
@Marida Cruz, Reptar friend of man
@Marida Cruz, I always thought that godzilla looked a lot like Reptar from the rugrats tv show. And one of my favorite godzilla flicks is Godzilla: Friend of man. So I combined the two.
@Gadget, that makes sense, considering that Reptar is a parody of Godzilla.
@Gadget, y-your mom.
@Marida Cruz, Godzilla was a parody of Reptar, change my mind.
@Gadget, easy, the first Godzilla movie came out in 1954, while Rugrats didn't start airing until 1991. 2 of the three creators of Rugrats where 5 years old or less when the first Godzilla came out, and the third creator hadn't even been born yet.
@Marida Cruz, Eh.... I don't know man, I just don't think you're giving me enough conclusive evidence here....
There, sources cited.
@Marida Cruz, you do realize I'm f*cking with you right?
@Gadget, just because you are doesn't mean I can't do my due diligence on delivering reliable sources, does it?
@Marida Cruz, lol I guess that's fair, I'll commend your dedication to informed journalism.
Here's why: *points to Godzilla* It's obvious.
I dont get why people get annoyed by him. He's a science communicator, so he applies physics to movies and tv and comics and etc to communicate science
@Ginga Bishounen, because he's a pompous ass and a killjoy, that's why
@Mitchatron5000, Hear! Hear!
Punch! Punch! Punch!
But Sharknado is still good though right?
Does anybody else think that people in the public eye don't deserve the scrutiny they get for doing things that literally every other person is doing? Not talking about NDT here, but public figures in general. Unless they claim to be better than everyone I think they should be allowed to make the same stupid mistakes millions of other people do.
@Devils Conscious, yeah, except social media is an unforgiving cruel monster that only loves cats.
