    • 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.

  • 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! 😍😍😋😅

  • Colors have feelings? Ban channel bc you’re ignoring other colors? Democrat thinker

  • 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?!

  • 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...

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

  • nice.. recording paint..

  • I love how you don’t beg for subscribers I don’t like to sub to channels that beg for it because it seems like there only in it for the subs but you just want to teach as many people as possible and their view is enough for you

  • i had 6 mins left of the vid and wanted 1hour

  • But..... but... Wait... But.... Aaaaaamm... But what about entropy???? 😵😵😵

  • Golden Spiral of LIFE.. Reversal laminar flow a.d.d. amphetamines anyone.. laminar flow laminar flow taylour couette laminar flow....

  • watching the first 30 seconds of this video at 0.25 speed is the funniest thing ive seen all my life. its like destin is just absolutely PLASTERED.

  • Thank you engineer for your work

  • I wish I could like this video multiple times.

  • i cant believe

  • Will that app dogear pages too? 🐕

  • This dude HAS to read wholeness and the implicate order by david bohm

  • I think your cololor differences where also due to gravity. But I also love it and the chances involved. We'll done to you sir as your outlook on life is so refreshing, even to Hugh ppl like the president. You are a real thinker and I understand you want ppl like us who watch your coverage to add ideas. Where one in the same.

  • That’s super cool

  • "JIFF", downvoted.

  • Sorry man I had to fast forward. My attention span is just....not very long

  • For useless late info, your pronounciation of Couette is fine, excepting the tonal accent (is it how you'd call it?). In French, most if not all words have there accentuation on the last part of the word (which makes our language completely unaware of said "tonal accents", we have to learn about the existence of such a thing the first time we're confronted with another language^^, very disturbing). So you are pronoucing "cou" fine, "ette" fine, just shorten as much as possible the first part and keep the second as long as you did. ;) Purrfect. In not-standerdized phonetics : {kwett}

  • Did the friction from turning change the viscosity over time to cause the striation?

  • The funny thing is he counted wrong both times

  • *LeTS SEe wHAt YoU GoT BOiS*

  • Wow 😮!!!!! That was one of the coolest things I’ve seen you do man !!!!!!! Awesome !!!!!

  • I was definitely mesmerized that it worked! Just wondering how would a variable spinning speed would affect the results...

  • Sooo cool! 👍Thank you Destin! ✌️

  • Cool video! Btw your pronounciation of "Couette' is almost perfect. Just put less emphasis on the "ou" sound : more like "kwette", less like "cOOette"

  • Wasn't expecting some deep advice to happen in this video, great book recc too! Thanks!

  • God bless bro. I love how u just added some inspiring and hopeful wisdom. I hope the universe opens up to you with some amazing opportunities that help u support your family and ur dreams. Blessings tocu and your family


  • This is an actual process in the making of candy canes 😀

  • I love how Destin gets so exited over seemingly simple but amazing things! As a 12 year old wanting to learn as much as possible in science, smarter every day and Veritasium have both been amazing channels and role models, and one things for certain, I want to see the beauty in every little thing, just like Destin. Have a good day to the few people reading comments!!! :)

  • Y’all should shoot a baseball going 500 mph

  • You can reverse as long as the spirals dont mix. Front view is simply added layers. Upper view shows distincts spirals. The question is, depending on the velocity and the thickness of the flow, how many turns do you need to reach an unreversible situation ?


  • youre videos suck

  • You deserve all the subscribes, bell rings, and likes... But your pronunciation of .gif is unforgivable.

  • The only time I didn’t want to fast forward and he does it for us 😂

  • Except Hawking Radiation.

  • i knew it would be a spinning cylinder inside a jar! I fear that my brain works faster than this guy, but clearly, based on my views, He's a far better person that I.

  • At first I was like "of course its gonna work, it's not that amazing" But then I was like "wait a minute, this is insane if it works" And then I was just in disbelief. Great video!

  • Bruh

  • So this is why a typical fluid coupler uses a type of 10w.

  • you should try that with resin to make a cool vase

  • Why is this so mesmerizing?

  • You only did 6 terns

  • Entropy was just violated. I'm scared
