  1. Soil is an ever evolving thing. It's made from stuff that is very ancient and very new. It's always developing, so could be seen as brand spanking new, or very old indeed. The stuff in my garden wasn't soil 12,000 years ago, as the land was bedrock covered in a mile of ice. Just my view of it.

  2. Could you do a video about weather please? Like how it forms, or rare storms, or strange weather around the world? That would be interesting, I love your channel! Keep up the good work. ^-^

  3. How do you know if a cat allergic to humans? Does it sneezes uncontrollably like humans do when we're having an allergic reaction? Or does it feel itchy?

  4. When i see that wink, i pause, i reflect on the video's information. I refer back to the wink.

    And begin a Raging tantric wank.

  5. Hi Thoughty2.

    I think you post great videos, but I have one question to this one:

    How can the soil in my back garden be 2 million years old? Saying that without any more argumentation is just wrong. A lot of households buy composted soil (that was composted from wood chips 3 years ago), some compost their own soil from household waste, and most landscapers fill inn with composted soil.

  6. Ladies and gentleman, the man is saying 42 as in the number, but his name is thoughty2 which if you say sounds a little like 42. Basically he is mind screwing you because 42 is the answer to the universe.

  7. I think my cat could be one of those cats that are allergic to humans. She's always sneezing and she breathes funny, like she's always congested or something. She may be allergic to me… That could be why she hides when people come over.

  8. Oh, so that's why there are cats which run away when I approach it – hell, they even ran away even when I crouch… while there are cats who are enough to walk around stroking itself to people's legs.

  9. The top soil in my garden was made in a factory seven years ago when the houses were built the land is acidic and not that good for planting.

  11. Everest is 237 meters taller than K2, Let's say for the sake of it the Everest gets a meter of snow, then K2 gets at least 238 meters? Doesn't sound likely…

  12. I believe the term 'Soil" is used out of context here in the fact that; the 'Dirt' under the soil may probably be so old, but the soil on top is always building from the fallen foliage and fungi in the ground of nature, every minute of every day, breaking things down- and to use the two interchangeably is like comparing junk food and apples.

  13. How can soils be 2 million years old if glacial periods erode the land and leave bare rock when it retreats witch would then lead the the formation off soil through the decomposition pioneer plants? Thoughty2 you live in the UK and the last glacier to reach the tames Severn line was 18 thousand years ago making the soil in you're garden not 2 millions years old.

  14. wait, In one rif you said that there are over 12000 privet tiger pets in the world and now you are saying that there are only 3200 tigers in the world????? wtf???

  15. im in the only country that begins with q
    by the way we are also the richest country in the world (google it)
