    • I speak french and you are saying Couette pretty right! Also À Ç É È Ö!!!!!!!!!!!

    • 9999turn challenge

    • Will that work with honey

    • Re: the book, also look up Mumia Abu Jamal and Leonard Peltier

    • You should be wearing gloves handling all that mercury.

  • Some how i was thinking that if we keep rotating it in one direction it will go back to its position

  • This is completly crazy

  • He’s a witch

  • looks like the surface of Jupiter, except of the vertexes.

  • I'm triggered he did 6 and not 7 on the first one oof

  • it's called low Reynolds number flow

  • Fascinating!

  • amazing!!

  • He's talking to the photos like he went to middle school with them lol

  • This guy comes from a long line of well off people. Shame.

  • Would it still work if the speed of the cranks was increased by 5 and reversed at the same speed. Which then the question to be asked is what is the breaking point???.... something to think on.

  • So cool i am glad my dad showed me this channel.

  • I love hearing life lessons from weapon makers

  • Who else is here from numberphile?

  • I follow a lot of your videos. I absolutely love science. Recently my life has been in for lack of a better term - turbulent- This video was a small inspiration for me to make me wonder again if I can methodically correct things and be the great human I know I am. :(. Thanks your a great person

  • Ctrl + Z

  • This was absolutely incredible.... never knew you could do this.... 😊💗

  • This is very cool M! Thanks for sharing.

  • Smart , humble , father, and a kind guy..

  • Hey man, I think you'd find Klien Bottles interesting, check it out! 🤡

  • most unexpected result 🙊

  • If you play the video backwards, it’s exactly the same.

  • Corn syrup has a very high density. Can this be done with less denser fluid

  • Awesome! Mind blowing!!! I think I just shot my laminar flow. :P

  • Can you do video about how purple is a lie and kids are learning BAD PRIMARY COLORS?

  • Ur ejaculation is a laminar flow...lamo

  • My Man Couette !

  • 😨😨😮👍👍👍😨😨😨😨

  • He is soo happy! 😍😍😋😅

  • So noone sees the parallels between this an the accretion disc on the exterior of a black hole?

  • When spun 7 times, it begins to look like the rings of clouds on Jupiter. I wonder if this is the principal that has occurred? Amazing video as always Destin. :)

  • Does it still work if you turn it fast?

  • Ok. Mind blown. Thank you.

  • "Do not fast Forward the Video" 4:47

  • Wow

  • Who TF dislikes this video?!

    • Monet fans. They love missing colors. To see colors unmixed is an abomination to them.

  • ultra laminar flow proves that time is an illusion

  • WHO also fast forward?

  • 1:00 For some reason that sped up part of filling up was so satisfying to me,i rewinded many times

  • That was a very cool experiment!! I would think setting this up to have a firmly controlled speed for the 7 turns, both ways, should minimize the striations a lot. Speed changes could cause different amounts of shear, if the ink viscosity is thinner/thicker than the syrup?

  • Is that the same Taylor as in the Taylor series from calculus class?

  • Thanks Pres Trump for Fiorst Step Act!

  • Hey! i think that when you use your have you create variation in the rotational speed, therefore, when you go back the colors doesn't have the same shape like you started. can you try to use DC motor to rotate the handle? i think that you can have more rotations like that. keep doing videos! i'm following you for few years now and i'm exited with every video you make!

  • Wait... That's illegal

  • SmarterEveryday I just love you so much. My love for science is just getting deeper with your videos. I love it. You are doing a great great job. 😍

  • 💜

  • So you're telling me if I reverse time I can get my life back in order?

  • When you add the food colororing do they have to be at different distances (between the wheel and the glass) or can they all be even?

  • He only rotated it six time's

  • Absolutely coolest and best experiment. I love your videos

  • Whhhhhaaaaaaaaatttttt

  • You gotta do it live, I believe you but my brain is twisted like colour in corn syrup.

  • "What do you do when you do the thing you always wanted to do?" You go in the bathroom and relieve yourself LOL

  • This is great!! Thank you so much for the education!!

  • Last sentences were real philosophical...

  • Great video, GREAT MESSAGE!

  • 6:26 thank you this means a lot in so many ways.

  • This is great! Thanks Destin! Just sub'd and binged all your laminar flow vids! Love it!

  • 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7. "That should be it. Time to go backwards." 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7. Me: ... How...

    • """Laminar flow""" (national geographic guy meme)

    • Its a special way of counting that only works for geniuses and super-geniuses. for the rest of us, its just a bit confusing.
