As the UK (and Portugal!) have just changed their clocks, and the US is about to embark on its twice-yearly whinge about how awful daylight savings time is (notable quotes I am predicting: "The cows don't know what time it is", "I don't want my children going to school in the dark, FFS think of the children!") I thought now might be a good time for the following video.

Also, I'm still in Portugal, it's evening, and I am mindlessly surfing the web again.

Enjoy!

But, but, but....

She asks the essential questions, and essential questions are hard to answer.

At the end she looks up at what appear to be trees and asks, "What are these and why are they everywhere?"

It's obvious, right? They're trees and they grow everywhere.

But the questions that are begged include: How did they evolve, and from what? How do they propagate? What place to they hold in nature? and so on.

Deep.

But most importantly, can you make a Vespa out of them?
