      @destin hello smarter, i was thought something that only you are able to show and explain, you can make a video about the strong of the hair? how much carry or pressure these things can support? i hope you read this, ty

                                  6:33 you don't understand how much that meant to me to hear it's kinda ridiculous but you have no idea the series of mistakes I've made this last few weeks and how desolate I've felt and frustrated I've felt. I needed to hear that.
                                  Thank You. I'm going to watch this video once a day this week to get through this hard time.

                                              makes an awesome demonstration of air flow as well ... and for those who think fluid dynamics and air flow arent the same ... you are so very wrong ... they are exactly the same ... they just have different viscosities and so react similarly but more pronounced ... this is why drag reduction works in wind tunnels and water tunnels ... it is essentially the same thing with different densities

                                                      Destin, I think it would be a cool idea to revisit the liquid coiling effect.

                                                            I don't think the two cylinders needed to be so different in size a thinner gap would be better because it uses less syrup and mixes faster
