  • At 6:53 you say centipedes can have between 30 and 345 legs. This was likely a typo where the intended number was 354, the maximum legs a Himantarum gabrielis specimen may have. There’s an even number rule in effect for their leg number 😉

  • here's some math (and physics I guess) to clarify the "speeding up at a constant rate": as we know, acceleration is proportional to time squared (distance/distance traveled is the second derivative of acceleration). this means that a falling object's distance traveled will change quadratically over time. with some basic physics equations, we find that distance traveled (for a falling object from rest) is actually exactly 1/2(9.8)(time)^2. since the units of time we're using are integers (whether its minutes or seconds or hours doesn't matter, what matters is that we count it 1, 2, 3, etc.), then the distance traveled at each time will be perfect squares: 1, 4, 9, etc. an important fact about perfect squares is that the nth perfect square is exactly the sum of the first n odd numbers (1 = 1, 4 = 1+3, 9 = 1+3+5, etc.) This means that if denote the distance traveled by a falling object in its first second of falling as X, then the distance traveled in the 2nd second will be the total (4X) minus the distance traveled in the first second (X), which gives us 3X. see? and that's the "odd number rule" what's interesting, is whether this fact that the nth perfect square = the sum of the first n odd numbers "came first" or the odd number rule...
