"Sure, it may seem like Mildred's overdoing with this termite, it seems quite defensless, but you never know, termite might be talking sh!t." That is my favorite line ever to exist. Edit: also, "And this ant doesn't have a trapjaw or a stinger. You know what it's weapon is? It fires acid out of its butt. And trust me, if you have butt-acid coming at you, you'd better have an escape plan!" Edit 2: the timestamps are 4:37 and 6:47 Edit 3: the timestamps are respective, like the 4:37 one goes to the first quote, and etc.

I rarely comment Ze, but you deserve it. Ty so much for your work, time, and love put into every vid. Just wanted to say, continue on man, everything in that universe, keep us learning and involved. If we could train teachers to apply their learning to students in the way you do to your viewers, kids would love science again... As well as all other disciplines. So glad I found your channel. You put smiles on my family's faces repeatedly, seriously each vid gets many views and laughs. Best of all we discuss things and learn, together. Take care and be safe.
