      Is this a way to call someone fat by saying your glow can be seen past the universe

    2. Jake Dewrance

      Vsauce: How tall can a person get 5min later "You're immortal"

    4. Unnaturally Natural

      watching vsauce really is a emotional roller coaster. "In space, no one can hear you scream." "Five kilometers away, no one can hear you scream." well damn michael i gue- "But can they _hear_ you scream?"

    15. Klassisk

    23. Imrahn Faqiri [Student]

      Wow, his transitions are just like in my essays

    24. Jacob 52

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="283">4:43</a> I think you are forgetting about my mother in law

    25. Viktor Kukuruzović

      i find it a bit irritating to hear people say stuff like "if an insect was as big as you it woul be ten times stronger", like should it not be obvious at least to people with some experience in building stuff that a human size bug would hardly be able to support its own weight? i mean yeah the power that it would be able to generate in some weightless state is pretty great, but when you introduce gravity and firm objects around them you can bet that they'd fall apart as soon as they try to move

    26. Ali Oraidh

      did you smell that might be you ! i literally smelled myself

    27. Gaben van den Brink

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="590">9:50</a> wait but how can we see the moon then?

      1. Tony Mancini

        That distance is calculated using the size of a person, the moon is much larger

    28. J N

      but michael, please hear me ask If I can emit photons, how do I blast a Kamehameha?

    29. Xrsr

      im doing many thinks

    30. Violetine

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="628">10:28</a> damn my boy micheal gettin some killer head just outta frame

    31. Who63

      He just destroys flat earthers without even ACTUALLY trying. With casual information they just get debunked every video😂

    32. Hondo Humberstone

      Hey, Siren Head was made from various organs, skin, and veins from human leftovers. Soo....

    33. Pavan Patel

      We are as big as the universe because we are part of it

    34. guest137937 likes memes

      It's not a tumor!

    35. Johanna Guerrero

      Smell doesn’t travel past or atmosphere? So you’re saying all our stink is on earth

    36. dhruv

      She : is it big? Me : <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="4">0:04</a>

    37. Phoba

      How big is his asshole and how much fart can he produce?

    38. Dodgy Malaka

      So... just make sure you’re 5 kilometers away from any human ears when committing murder. Got ya.

    39. PGT Beauregard

      Magellan's assistant once reported seeing a race of giants near Tierra del Fuego at the base of South America. When other sailors returned they found no one. The so-called 'Patagonian giants' were up to 10 feet tall. There is evidence of their existence, though the actual size has never been verified...

    40. Chase C.

      Michael: How far can you possibly throw something. Michael 2 minutes later: And that brings us to ice cream factories.

    41. Erix

      vsauce: "how big can a person get?" *some time later* vsauce: "no one can hear you scream in Earth in 5 km"

    42. Red

      I feel like watching vsauce is like taking a drug also ive never taken drugs that do the weird bongobang

    43. Jake Ahern

      So Vsauce, Does size matter?

    44. Mc Odd Guy

      So render distance isn't just in games?

    45. audiotron1003

      OK, I get it but what about time? As I understand energy cannot be destroyed just transformed soooo, if I take sound as my example, if I shout the sound waves ripple out but like water ripples just get infinitely smaller so if I shouted when I was twenty years old I should in theory with a good enough detector, hear what I said. So my biggest size could also be measured in time too. Just like my ever expanding photon aura. This is deep stuff tor a 53 year old bloke from the UK who is 6'2" or 185cm tall. 🤔🤔

    46. Arthur Khazbs

      The ceiling pun is cool

    47. Aljoscha Long

      You can see a life-sized replica of Robert Wadlow in a Museum in Amsterdam. Really amazing when you stand at his side!

    48. dima9917

      Yo mama's so big she defies science

    49. darkchaos11

      "curvature of the earth" thats not possible. the earth is flat

    50. Verfolger

      I love how he talked about André the Giant and a few minutes later he was talking about how frogs can see individual photons

    51. Maxwelldaboon

      Fuck off i need to sleep

    52. Chaser Plays

      i guess best way to see massive growth of humans and how big they can get is to check the bbc section on p-hub.

    53. Ferocious Gaming

      2020 anyone?

    54. Onestriker 101

      "if someone is one inch in front of you, but can you see them...?"

    55. Jaime Arcos

      If my naked eye visibility is only 15km max, then why can I see stars and the moon?

    56. Talia

      i searched up #.Frog. *why in the world did this come up*

    58. Ogun Gou

      Hi. You forgot to mention that the average height of the Kara/Karo people from the Omo Valley was known to be 7,87 feet tall, not so long ago. It must be less now with the "inter-tribal marriage"/"Interethnic marriage" ...

    59. Lina Olofsson

      The moment Michael says "no one can hear you scream" I was like uhhh... What?

    60. Dukes

      Are dinos real?

    61. Kiazio

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="425">7:05</a>... Sure tell that to Lydia when I shouted her off the throat of the world.

    62. SparticusTheGamer

      Great Video, but Andre was really more like 7' 1"

    63. Elite Junior

      Wonder how this guy knows all this info and understands any of this...

    64. Zion Cleare

      Okay yeah but how tall can a human get

    65. ram pet

      TL DR we need frog astronomy to be a thing

      Tells his wife that his "Photon Package" is huge.

    68. Norcalflat

      So this means the largest animal in the world is.... the smell of bacon?

    72. Tuoyo Edukugho

      the show is actually too interesting to press the like button. Millions of people watch it but forget to press the like button

    73. zyv

      How is this men so smart

    74. Jalapeño

      This is basically a 16 minute ‘Yo Mama’ joke. Michael just called our mothers larger than the observable universe. Damn.

    75. mirrorsedgy

      what if there was a civilization that existed before humans and has long died out, and their photons reached earth and mixed and mingled together with our lightsources and our photon radation, could we ever tell them apart and are flashlights nothing more than space radation and other people?

    76. mirrorsedgy

      could we ever tell a photon's age, if it even has any to begin with
