The Serenity of Nature video collection

Nature Channel by arvana

Relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility of Mother Nature, with this collection of videos that reflect the wonder and beauty of our animals, trees, rivers, lakes and mountains.

For domesticated animals, see the Pets Channel; but videos of wild animals in human environments are included here -- such as urbanized animals, zoos, or animal rescues. And even the occasional goat, cow or sheep!

The Nature Channel also showcases the natural wonders of physics, biology, psychology and astronomy.

Monster Bug Wars on YouTube

Monster Bug Wars has an official YouTube channel with many videos -- "This is ringside access to bug-eat-bug gladiatorial contests! Witness some of nature’s deadliest encounters where stings, spikes and deadly venom are wielded with cold-blooded precision. Enter the no-holds-barred, real life world of spiders, scorpions, centipedes and killer ants fighting to the death. When the Spiny Leaf Insect goes head to head with the Giant Rainforest Mantis it’s an all-out assault where only one survives. Can the lethal stinger of a Bull Ant overcome the suffocating silk of the Redback Spider? When a lethal Tree Scorpion threatens a Green Ant colony carnage is certain. Who survives the showdown between a deadly Desert Centipede and a Desert Trapdoor spider?

Filmed in extreme close-up high definition and illustrated with state-of-the-art CGI, Monster Bug Wars! brings to life nature’s ultimate fight club. Five encounters per episode are accompanied with commentary..."

There are lots of ants too!

BAHFest's YouTube Videos

BAHFest's YouTube channel has many videos of its "BAH! The Festival of Bad Ad Hoc Hypotheses!

... many celebrations of well-argued and thoroughly researched but completely incorrect evolutionary theory. Our brave speakers presented their bad theories in front of a live audience and a panel of judges with real science credentials, who together determined who took home the coveted sculpture of Darwin shrugging skeptically. And eternal glory, of course..."

An example is with Negative Repercussions of the Repopulation of Deer Species.

Storm Diaries - How is everybody doing?

Since Sandy is about to hit, I am sure there are VS people who are affected by the 'storm of the century'. I guess, if you are in a very bad spot, you should already be somewhere else and can't get to VS, or at leasts that's not your priority. I just hope everybody is safe!

But how are things near everybosy? Here in the middle of Ohio, the wind is picking up and getting naasty, and we are not even in near the areas to be the biggest hits. News have been forecasting high wings and power outages because if that (so I better post this before cable goes down). Mr NetRunner is still at work, and he is probably already tired of me IMing him about when can he leave and just come home. But the wind is getting crazy. I do hope my worries about having to rake my yard will be taken care of, though..

I went to the store this morning. Surprisingly I was able to get batteries. Although, if things go like with previous bad storms, the batteries ands flashlights run out only after the storm has hit and most people have their power out.

I have learned my lessons. I have at least 10 flashlights stashed around the house. Luckily we have had gas still working even after the power had gone out. A few years back we were out of power for about 5 days. Gas stove top worked, so I was able to make coffee and heat stuff up, and showers were hot. Luckily that was a September outage, so no heat, nor air conditioning were needed. We read a lot of books during that blackout And grilled! That was not too bad. If there is an outage this time, I don't think it will be that nice..

Anyway, I hope everybody is fine and safe. If you have any 'urban survival' tricks or stories, it would be nice to hear then

Take care!
