Swedish stop motion animator, Alex Unger (Guldies), has crafted an amazing video.
From his YouTube description:
After months of hard work GOING FISHING is finally here. I have never worked so hard. The animation is filled to the brim with new stuff I’ve never tried before. I animated with branches and leaves, paper, clay, fabric, fishing lures, forks and stones and moss and EVERYTHING I could think of.
I had to do a couple stop-motion projects in college. They are some of the most tedious and frustrating things I had worked on.
YouTube Aviculturalist, A Chick Called Albert, rescued two tiny tiny bird eggs from imminent destruction. He was able to hatch one of the eggs and raise the tiny Wren to the point where it left the “nest” and was on its own.
I can only imagine the effort that goes into hatching and raising a tiny bird. Apparently you have to rotate the egg several times a day in the incubator. Then the feeding schedule looked intense. I have to imagine it feels great to see the little bird leave healthy.
Do you love Math riddles? Lisa Winer and TED-Ed have a new riddle video. I can not tell you more in fear of giving anything away. I can tell you that I had to watch the video twice in order to understand everything. Knowing this riddle will have to come in handy some day in the future.
The permafrost layer in the arctic is starting to thaw. How will the affect global warming?
Behind the door is a geological time bomb, scientists say. No one knows exactly how big the bomb is. It may even be a dud that barely detonates. But the fallout could be so large that it’s felt all around the world. Now there’s evidence that, in the past few years, the bomb’s timer has started ticking.
This is a terrifying read. The permafrost in the arctic contains a massive amount of organic material that has been frozen for 25,000 years. As global temperatures rise, thawing the permafrost, bacteria trapped in the frost will activate and start breaking down the organic material.
