How to catch an emu - Video

LET ME TELL YOU A THING

THIS IS A LEGIT THING

THIS IS LITERALLY WHAT PEOPLE DO TO GET EMUS TO COME CLOSE

Apparently you lie on the ground on your back and move your arms and legs.

And the emus are very curious and come over like, “The fuck is that.”

And that’s literally what it is. They come over wondering what the fuck you’re doing

This might be my favorite piece of information I have ever learned.

PROTECT JESSICA WILLIAMS AT ALL COSTS.

She is the best.

QUEEN

Literally the best.

Forget stardust—you are iron. Your blood is nothing but ferrous liquid. When you bleed, you reek of rust. It is iron that fills your heart and sits in your veins. And what is iron, really, unless it’s forged? You are iron. And you are strong.

n.t. (via thelittle-hobbit)

Damn right you’re iron, and do you know where iron comes from? Do you know how iron gets here? Let me tell you.

It does start with a star, but it’s not some dismal castoff from an eternal beauty, it’s so much more. Everything that makes our world came from stars, but nothing had as much effect on that star as iron.

See the sun burning in the sky? The light you see and the heat you feel are created when the sun fuses elements, the building blocks of our world, into new and heavier elements. The sun lives because more energy comes from that process than is needed to support it.

UNTIL IRON COMES ALONG.

Fusing iron — burning it to make a star shine — is nigh on impossible. Iron is strong and iron is heavy. Iron is so strong and so heavy that to make new elements from iron takes more energy than it produces. The star can’t keep up, it starts to die.

The iron that flows through your veins KILLED A STAR.

Those other metals that we so value, like gold, owe their existence to iron. As the star died it collapsed, crushing itself and making gold and platinum and other precious and powerful things. Then it exploded and scattered those metals throughout space.

Chief among them was iron. The iron whose formation was the death knell of the star. The iron whose intensity made other metals possible. The iron that was the last thing the living star could make.

Stars lived to make iron.

Stars died to make you.

(via noctumsolis)

You must not reduce yourself to a puddle just because the person you like is afraid to swim and you are a fierce sea to them; because there will be someone who was born with love of the waves within their blood, and they will look at you with fear and respect.

Thank you so much for Crashcourse. As a high school history teacher, it's often hard to find resources for students that are high quality AND that the students enjoy, particularly my AP level students. Have you gotten feedback from teachers? Have they shared how they are using the videos? Ps- please thank Sarah for the art Assignment. It made for a wonderful prompt in my Humanities course!

That’s all so great to hear! We have a group of teachers we work with periodically to get feedback, especially now that we’re developing resource materials around the videos—essays, collections of primary sources, worksheets, and so on. (Those should start debuting at the beginning of next year.) We’re able to invest in non-video resources thanks to Crash Course’s Subbable subscribers, so thanks!

If you’re an educator who’d like to be on that list, you can email us with the subject line TEACHER at hankandjohn-at-gmail. 

Thanks for watching Crash Course and The Art Assignment!

This is great advice, and a great inspiration.
