    Instead of saving for my kids' college, I make videos using the money I would have saved.
    The thought is it will help educate the world as a whole, and one day generate enough revenue to pay for their education. Until then if you appreciate what you've learned in this video and the effort that went in to it, please SHARE THE VIDEO!

      Such a beautiful wholesome video, first caterpillars and butterflies then flowers blooming along with quality daddy daughter time with knowledge and sciencey thoughts scattered all the way through it. This has me all warm and fuzzy on the inside.

      Also Destin you've been quite the inspiration to me. You turned on the creative and curious switch inside my brain and I've never seen the world the same since! And now Im looking forward to graduating as a mechanical engineer and become a dad one day!!!

                      It’s a misconception that chameleons change colors to blend into their environments. They don’t, they change colors based on how they’re feeling, and the changes aren’t typically all that drastic.

                                                the wings are folded in the chrysalis, and the way they are folded can be described using origami math.
