  • I love your videos,I would love them more without the hardcore drug references💞ty

  • I liked you but you went to far! No one makes fun of the metric system! It's the superior system 😋

  • "But this isn't that kind of hiding kit kats in every draw in your house sort of sugar addiction. You know who you are-" *nervously looks away and slowly closes my candy hiding box*

  • TWO straws right? Wrong!! As if nature ever does things the easy way. Too funny

  • 9:20 😂😂😂😂

  • Jerry that's a moth

  • 9:29 I used the same sound to win the love of my now husband.

  • this shit is best wATCHED if youre drunk by the way

  • Don't want to be that guy, but think you meant Ang Lee, as opposed to Jet Li. Love these videos. Doing your bit to make science cool again.

  • I've just discovered this channel. Where were you when I was in the throes of depression

  • It’s a bjird. LOL

  • This was the most hilarious video I've seen for a while..Imagine, to impress your fiancée , you run up a hill , rund down in your highest speed and when you pass you make a sound... lol

  • Why do I feel like I know Jerry so well now

  • bjerd

  • You should make one on predatory birds, like eagles hawks and others

  • I love how the mating ritual of a hummingbird involves doing the best possible impression of a Ju-87 Stuka, all the way down to Jericho Horns.

  • I love how you pronounce "bird" as "björd"

  • 15 licks per second. A hummingbird would destroy a Tootsie Pop.

  • 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😭😭😭😭😭🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Learned a lot (and lost 5 lbs from laughing)

  • Zefrank: Hiding kitkats around the apartment... you know who you are... Me: I FEEL VERY ATTACKED. (and a quick shout out to that time I learned the hard way why you change the sugar water in a hummingbird feeder every day... I got my hummingbirds drunk! 😢😢😢)

  • I had things to do today and now I'm going to spend it watching hilarious nature information, great.

  • For the bjerds.

  • 9:28 I have the sense of humor of a 2 year-old and I’m not ashamed of it.

  • "They can't store fat" 5 minutes later. "They fatten up for the journey" Proofreading is important.

  • 😅Psychedelic bird baby🤣🤣🤣

  • The (TRUE!) fact that the magnification WAS exactly like a Meade composition notebook.... I horse-laughed, out loud, by myself, from beginning to end

  • Should have added a Stuka dive bomber to the list of Humming bird mating calls. Would have actually killed me.

  • "The humming bird is a pollinator, as it sticks its beak inside the flowers hole, it gets the male stuff all over its face.. Jerry I can't read this. I DON'T CARE IF THAT IS HOW FLOWERS ALL GET PREGNANT!" Got me dead 💀

  • Buttfeathers

  • I really love this series; it's so funny that I can't breastfeed my newborn while watching it because I laugh so hard he gets distracted.

  • am i the only one imagining running down a steep hill while my wife waits at the bottom spreading my cheeks and crop dusting just me, well pffffft to u all!!

  • its time for ur 3pm tongue flattening, dear

  • I google it, you thake the thumb down, bad boy

  • The correct way to watch this episode is on 2x speed while high on pcp.

  • Jerry needs to get his shit together lmao

  • *Its hard to imagine my little friends will be making their 3300km+ journey back from South America to Canada for the nesting season soon...they are marvels of nature* *(They can fly over the entire span of the ocean from Southern USA to South America without Stopping)*

  • admit it, we all love Jerry. never change, Jerry

  • Once got scared because I confused a hummingbird with a black hornet

  • Yes yes I’m watching it high

  • This was wonderful! I love learns while one laughs and one remembers both!

  • it's a jet li movie xD

  • Uhhhhhhhhh I cant get it lol

  • The talking about the notebook thingy I thought of adhd like me

  • This all happens very quickly 15 licks every second.. That's a lot of lick friction🤭😉

  • Otherwise...

  • Jerry just cant do his job right

  • I cant read this Jerry, I dont care if that's how flowers get all pregnant its smut! Lmao

  • “Jerry, that’s a moth”.

  • Metric System tbh is kinda more organized because it uses factors of 10 and its really easy if you make the smart out of it! But the *Cough* US still uses Imperial System, (Like out of 3 countries in the world???) Still very funny! Lmaooo! (No offense to any US Person here yall are awesome despite the system)

  • Video on months when?

  • 4:11 "...104 degrees Fahrenheit, which is approximately look-it-up-on-Google-yourself Celsius..." LOL!!!

  • Ahh..."for science"

  • 0:51 I feel personally attacked.

  • "If you had your own wind tunnel You'd put everything in it ...I mean not a baby" Technoblade: "is that a challange"

  • 104F = 40C

  • An engineering marvel? Wasn't it blind purposeless evolution that led to that there tongue? A Creator? Noooooo

  • Oh great, ANOTHER freaking moronic video!

  • "Let's slow it down for science" Yes, science

  • It's 40°C, so yep, they're hawt.

  • I never realised how aggressive they are until I was outside smoking a blazooka and watched 3 of them fight for dominance over a feeder they would go sit on a branch near by and when another would come they would divebomb into each other

  • Damn. That mom just jams her whole long ass break down the bebehs throat! How the hell does she not impale them to death! Poor bebehs.

  • I'm weirdly fascinated by how he says nerd bird

  • Glad they do not get diabetes.

  • Hummingbird's tongues tickle when they lick the wax out of your ears. Just resist the swat away reflex which is normal because bumble bees are about their size and see for yourself. Having a hummingbird hover a few inches from your nose; eye to eye, is a pretty cool meeting of species. We're the weirdos, not them.

  • This is my new favorite channel. holy fuck this is the best way to learn

  • "Jerry, that's a moth."

  • I absolutely love any content release. Thank you for making my night!!

  • So you mean to tell me that he whistles with his butt. Honestly intresting although I never would of guessed it. 😂

  • "for science, let's slow that down"

  • I knew Moira Rose wasn't the first one to say "bey bey" for baby....I knew I had heard it somewhere I know.

  • I learned, I laughed (A Lot!) and I gave a thumbs up 👍😂😂

  • The beak part was too confusing he made zero sense

  • 9:29 that's an A10 trying to mate.

  • Hummingbierd

  • When he said "hummingbirds get horny and do a kind of reverse..." I was sure the next word would be "cowgirl"

  • Why am I only discovering this narrator now?

  • *_Byierds_*

  • "A little bit more.... for science." 🤣🤣🤣

  • I watched so many videos. Seriously, who is jerry?

  • vicious bicycle lmao
