Funny that even if they measured Colorado correctly, it still wouldn't be a rectangle.

7:53 Well if n is equal to 2.5, then that would mean 6 is an odd number. Thanks Vsause 👍

But less about the relation of cheese amongst soldiers in the trenches in world war one and more about how space and burnt steak share a common enemy, cats. Cats love space, you know what else loves space and cats, cats.

The better question at the beginning when someone asks "why" is "why not?"
Also wouldn't odd = 2n ± 1? Because you can add or subtract 1 to get an odd number

What is the reason that people presume an external force, such as gravity, exists? A logical mind would simply acknowledge the fact that things of the earthen realm are drawn to it, or perhaps, repelled from the heavens. Mathematical relationships do exist, but math itself doesn't answer any questions. This is why any so-called science based upon math is actually not science at all, but a religious cult.
Our reality is created by the Heavenly Father and His creation bears testimony to His glory. He gave some men the ability to understand His creation better than others, but most of these people end up chasing delusional fantasies like einsteins nonsensical theories, quantum physics, or other secular veneers applied to babylonian mysticism.
It's 2020 and we still have fools that genuinely believe men flew to the moon in a metal can, or that earth is a spinning ball adrift in "outer space". It's time to put such childish fantasies to rest and seek the Truth. Tomorrow is promised to no one.

When someone asks how many U's are in a W
W: spelled double u
do*uble *u
Two U's
Therefore, a double u
Aka, W
But W looks like two V's
A double v
But would Vsauce2 be Vsauce squared
Ergo, Vsauce × Vsauce
But Vsauce is the first channel
Therefore, Vsauce1
So in a mathematical equation,
Wouldn't Vsauce × Vsauce = Vasauce
Vsauce = Vsauce2
But nonsense, since Vsauce + Vsauce= Vsauce2
Ah, preposterous!
Yet Eureka!
Vsauce + Vsauce2= Vsauce3
and Vsauce2 + Vsauce3 = Vsauce
Being that Vsauce= Vsauce2= Vsauce3.
Why doe s Michael call us Vsauce when he greets us?
Are we the answers to the enigma we've never asked for?
Are we the answer to all questions?
Are we also Micheal?
Mandela Effect: was Vsauce purple first or green?
Is infinity countable?

The sum of the first n odd numbers is n^2. Because distance = velocity times time and velocity is directly proportional to time (v=a*t, where a is acceleration), it means distance is quadratically proportional to time. Therefor, it depends on t^2, which is a sum of odd numbers!
Thank you, Vsauce, for posting another really interesting video!
