Chubbyemu : In Emu We Trust 😂

Medlife Crisis : Keen to hear your thoughts - too long? Too boring? Too scienceful? Or not scienceish enough? Or do you just want to register your objection to my face? I know the autofocus went nuts, unfortunately my cousin had borrowed my lenses so was left with this crazy thing. Blame her! I hope it didn't make you feel too seasick.

TheDoubleGrin : Excellent video, your articulation and pacing are spot on. I think you delve into the underlying science enough to satisfy curiosity without getting too technical. I hope this channel blows up, doc, you deserve it.

A Fruit Shop Owner : Oh wow, this channel is amazing! I just found this video on /r/videos and it reminded me of Chubbyemu's youtube channel. I love this kind of content, keep it up doc!

Marco J : This was fantastic, and I learnt so much; it was scienceful enough for me. It was a great at 10 minutes, but you could get away with making it shorter. Although i knew Sherpa people were special I didn't realise just one tiny gene can have such an impact. More human diversity videos like this would be awesome

five666666 : Great video. Thanks for posting this, keep it up!

Armanlex : At 2:32 you are giving me chubbyemu vibes. I like it!! Edit: Ok I resumed the video and I literally paused right before the chubby emu picture showed up. I'm telling the truth!

Dee Cee : 2 strokes are a beast

AryehS1989 : Really a fantastic video, a good mix of informative and entertaining. Always looking forward to the next video!

eecak1973 : Would Sherpas make great cyclists? Western kids are evolving bigger thumbs for xbox and texting.

yuan232y : Too good !

BrokenSymmetry : This was very nice! I think you hit the right balance of science and non-science language and I think you are doing a great job in explaining (I myself love teaching so I subconsciously pay attention to teaching abilities :D ). What I really, really like especially is that you introduced us to a part of the world we don't know much about, provided more information about it in your description, and by doing that raised awareness of the conditions of people's lives in Nepal. I think these kind of videos are a great way of letting us be more familiar with the unknown parts of the world and their inhabitans because it cultivates compassion and understanding of the differences, which, as this video shows, are very often only due to the fact that some gene in a group of people switched on (or off) just because those people lived for a long time in certain set of climate/geographical conditions. By using a mixture of science, humor and a captivating way of presentation I think you are doing a very important job in a great way!

Alexandra Ross : Excellent! Keep it up! Going to tell my dad to subscribe .. he would love this

Tyran1033 : Great video thanks!

Yorick : 4:17 that glove save is incredible

Chris Davies : Isn't all this totally and completely obvious, if you think about it for more than 7 seconds?

Hip Hoptimus Prime : This video is fantastic. Please make more. The science amount was just right and it was an interesting topic. I've checked out your other videos and you are doing great things, keep going. You will definitely find a market and expand.

Anthony Jackson : So they would do terribly in ocean level swim race?

metal666micky : The chubbyemu reference had me laughing! Good video. I like the fact you cite your references too. I also see the double meaning in your channel name. I suspect you’ve been practising medicine for a long time and reached burnout. So you’re trying to rediscover control of your time, while still doing what you both know and love; medicine.

Gokarna Aryal : Visit Nepal

Mr Good : They are god’s soldiers

Random Nepal : THis is the most boring video I have ever seen about Sherpas......Foreign mountaineer brag about their climbing and you guys brag about your finding...Touch their daily life bros....Make a story about their wives, their children, how they feel when their husbands/fathers go to mountains. And they know they may not return.... Show the real work on field, not the result of your laboratory and library.

Aspect Science : Before replying to the comment you left for us I figured I'd leave a comment here! Brilliant videos! I think if the lectures I sat through in University were by you it would have been a lot easier to stay awake - really interesting points and well put across! Just followed on the 'gram too!
