      Science stupid like cows E = MC^2 of science lose to sperm virus. Sperm virus are extremely sophisticated, sperm virus use 1 positron + suck 1 electron -- create lightning 0,1 voltage create energy for sperm virus to work, the function of viral sperms is to generate electricity for cells human and animals cells, the sperm virus enters the egg to create the mitochondria, mitochondria produc millions lightning 0,1 voltage per second, so the humans and animals are always 37 degrees Celsius

    You are a very lucky man to have a dad that you can hang out with and share intricate knowledge with. Both of you look very happy just hanging out with each other. Thanks for the visual lesson about carburetors. I think I am starting to get it now. Your see thru carb is helping me to see what actually happens in real time. I am going to keep watching your videos until it sinks in and I understand it completely.

    Old-world technology. Might have worked decades ago, but injectors are much more efficient, cheaper, more resilient, easier to configure. I mean, a steam engine is beautiful as well, but we’ve moved on for a reason. It’s a good thing curburettors were banned some thirty years ago.

    UNBELIEVABLE!!! " a mechanical engineer..." .........just embarrasses all mechanical engineers. Just the initial filling of the bowl is a "surprise" ???? The bowl is lower than the fuel tank. Liquid flows "down hill". Why would this be a surprise when the fuel line is connected to the bowl ???? UNBELIEVABLE!!!!! This guy is no "mechanical engineer". "Can you run TWO cylinders off of one carburetor? .....SERIOUSLY??? Clearly, this guy IS NO MECHANICAL ENGINEER. Don't tell him it can run EIGHT cylinder and more.....oh he did tell him .....too late. This video is great for explaining to kids, how a carbureted engine works .....but leaving out all the nonesense from this clown. "I understand carburetors now. Yeah. I mean, I guess nobody actually a hundred percent understand it" ...... TOO INSULTING. DO NOT USE TERMS LIKE "STOICHIOMETRIC" WHEN YOU ARE SO VERY CLUELESS ABOUT EVERYTHING AS SIMPLY AND FUNDAMENTAL AS A CARBURETED SYSTEM. "Your pretty smart for a redneck" insulting coming from a "mechanical engineer". I would summarize that this clown is looking for a way to make some money from RSlost ....because there is no other way to explain it.

    This is awesome! I will have to check the other videos out to see if you've already done it but how about a two-stroke carburetor? I am not positive but I believe they do not have a bowl and instead rely on a diaphragm to pull in the fuel. They also require the fuel and the oil to be mixed as there is no oil in the engine and therefore no other form of lubrication in the engine. It would be pretty cool to see that diaphragm in action!
