EmperorTigerstar : Enthusiasm. Lots of enthusiasm.

Internet Dweller : I really love how he loves what hes talking about

Mutantcy1992 : Find someone who loves you the way Cliff loves math.

Olger : This gentleman looks like he's probably making a flux capacitor in his garage. Can't wait doc! :)

Scooby MiKE : So... the Bermuda triangle is really a square?

Uriah Siner : I hope I can find something in life that makes me as happy as math makes this man.

Xan the Dragon : I love math, don't get me wrong, I love my numbers. But DAMN. Cliff really loves math, and he's beyond anything I've seen. I'd be surprised to see someone who likes it more than him.

Jack Dog : “You know as well as I do” *explains something I’d never thought about before* Me: uh... yeah... I sure did know that...

Magnets & magic : This dude is the happiest person i ever saw

Lorne Nix : This is the guy that invented the OASIS right?

Andriy Vasylenko : 2:16 for a moment I seriously thought it'd be the Klein's bottle again

Magnets & magic : When you love being alive 3:14

ZacabebOTG : Cliff Stoll is so awesome. He's excited like a little kid, and that has me excited like a little kid. If I'd had maths and physics teachers like this, I'd have remembered so much more. 🙂

Junior_Djjr - canal antigo : On Portuguese, "square" is "quadrado", something like a junction of words "four sides", so, it's really weird to watch this video, because we link the word with a "4-sided figure", regardless of their angles. We have a different vision of what is square, if you draw a weird figure with 4 sides, we will call it a "square", because it has "quatro lados". Similar for spanish and other latim-like languages.

DEVANG LIYA : 7:37 "It's trying to pop out of the bottom of the table" Cliff is amazing!

CosmicCitiZen : playing at x2 this professor looks a mad METH-matician :D ;)

f k : Never would've believed I'd learn about shapes from Kermit the frog at two different stages of my life.

Official B17 R473 : I WISH I had this guy as a calculus professor.

A Vsaucy Boi : I wish I had this much in excitement for geometry, I do better in Algebra and everything that isn’t geometry

falxonPSN : My 10 year old will get a huge kick out of this! Great video. It would be cool if someone 3D printed these shapes to play with.

A Hamzah : His enthusiasm heals the whole world's depression

aaron : The definition of a square is; a plane figure with four equal straight sides and four right angles. How do any of these shapes fit that definition? 3 sides? 5 sides? Sides that are curved and not linear?

Bernhard Riemann : Not sure if Fermat was brilliant or just guessing.

Flying Potatoe : I love his passion 💕

Shane Kräuchi : I LOVE how excited this man gets!

Vertigo : 3:10 He’s so excited and it made me smile. I love this guy.

Arka Chanda : But as per definition... They must be straight lines in 2d. And not in 3d

RONaldo B : As a legitimate question is it really a square? The sides are curved and cannot be portrayed in 2 dimensions, is it a 3 dimensional object that id similar to a square?

Creative Mind Tea : WOAH WOAH WOAH Wait just one minute... he just said that our universe has a NEGATIVE curvature. My assumption is that he got this information with proof from somewhere and I would like to know why. This is a big deal to me

Michael Martindale : His admiration and enthuse for this subject is infectious.

Fingernail Clipper : I guess Numberphile once again got this explained fair and “square”, eh?

SqueakyPeeky : I've never seen someone so excited about math

almartinez14201 : my life is a lie

Adam A. : I love this guy’s enthusiasm

Blue eyed Eurasian : I wish I was taught math very interestingly just like this in high school. What I learned was just random calculation of numbers. I hated it because it ache my head. But now I realised that math is just fun as you get to know it esp with engineering.

azziethemessy : When maths give you orgasm

Joel Grayson : 3:12. I love Cliff Stoll's energy.

Soham Mirikar : Square has 2 dimensions sphere is 3d... Then how do you compair them?😢🤔🤔

Unclear Sector : this guy is literally Vsauce in like 45 years. also i would spend all of the money i have right now for this guy to teach *one* of my math classes

PIZZAER : Imagine a pseudo-sphere planet...

Quinton Craig : This only works with 3d objects. Or data based on 3d space.

András Fogarasi : A convex shape made of straight sides of equal lengths and only 90° angles is a 4-sided square. *Or is it?*

shanker pepe : 89731265 numberphile

Sobsz : So, a Parker square?

ASHCROFT : I will be a genius if this guy is my math teacher...

BananaLizard : This guy is a lunatic and i love it

TheTwilitHero : I love how this was uploaded a day or two after a book I was reading mentioned a fivesided square, as in town square. I thought they just meant a Pentagon.

Mr. Money : Now some is going to pop out like BuT tHe EaRtH iS fLaT sO yOu CaN't MaKe A 3 sIdEs' SqArE!!!!!11!1!1!11!

Mister Apple : I'm going to start saying that things have “delicious properties”.
