  • Hey everybody! Welcome to The Brain Scoop.

    嘿,大家好!歡迎來到 The Brain Scoop 。

  • Today I'm gonna answer some questions about what my favorite things are,


  • because in Ask Emily episodes you ask me a lot of what my favorites are and I didn't know.


  • But now I do.


  • When I visited the paleobotanical collection, the collection's manager, Ian Glasspool, showed me a vial of ash,

    Erin,@familiarwldrnss 問: 你個人覺得最寶貴的博物館收藏是什麼?

  • which happened to be the first known evidence of a fire ever burning on the planet


  • meaning that some 419 million years ago, when photosynthetic bacteria was forming into a kind of fungus,


  • it caught on fire and we have the physical evidence of that event happening.


  • The idea that we can trace such a significant event back to the physical evidence of its happening


  • opened up my mind to the possibility that we can potentially answer any question conceivable of mankind.


  • Sauropods! Especially Amphicoelias, which was an enormous dinosaur


  • only known from a handful of fossils that were found and described in the 1870s before being accidentally misplaced.

    thundertwig 問: 你最喜歡的恐龍是什麼?

  • If this animal were to have existed, it could have been up to 60 meters, or 200 feet, long,


  • which seems a little ridiculous that we wouldn't be able to find more evidence of it


  • considering it was about the length of five and a half school buses put together end-to-end.


  • Somebody just turned the lights off.


  • It's hard to beat insect adaptationslike how the bombardier beetle can fire out a cocktail of catalytic compounds in defense against predators.


  • This vaporic acid comes spewing out of its rear end at about 100°C, or 212°F.


  • Take that.

    Tobias Würzburger,@CrimsonWizard 問: 你有最喜歡的一種動物大絕招嗎?

  • I really enjoyed painting class with Mr. Gulbransen because he let me set up an easel in the back of the classroom

    很難有比昆蟲適應能力還要厲害的——像是放屁蟲(bombardier beetle)可以射出多種催化化合物來防禦掠食者。

  • and would tell me stories about how after college he lived in a tipi in Wyoming with his girlfriend.


  • He also helped me get a bunch of scholarships to go to school and had a huge positive impact on my life.


  • So thanks, Mr. G.

    kimchi-kimi 問: 你在高中時最喜歡的課是什麼?

  • I really enjoyed visiting the International Museum of Surgical Science here in Chicago. In addition to having a rare working iron lung on display,


  • they also have 20th century recreation of an apothecary shop, and surgically removed kidney stones the size of your fist.


  • I could say it's access to amazing cultural and scientific institutions,


  • but really it's grocery stores and their diverse selection and arcade bars where I can attempt to overcome my insatiable desire for pinball.


  • That would have to be around 4.4 million years ago when early hominids stood upright and became bipedal.

    lecieltumultueux 問: 有哪些博物館是你最喜歡參觀或拜訪的呢?

  • And whether that was for freeing our arms for food- and baby-carrying purposes, wading through marshy bogs,

    我很喜歡參觀芝加哥的國際外科醫學博物館(International Museum of Surgical Science)。他們除了有展示一個非常難得還會動的鐵肺,

  • or in order to cross large distances more efficiently, perhaps it was for dancing,


  • or the romantic notion that we wanted to walk hand-in-hand with our brethren.

    thatbelle 問: 除了博物館之外,你到目前為止還最喜歡芝加哥的什麼?

  • For whatever reason, it was a good thing we did, because now we can do so much more.


  • Bacon.


  • I mean, the uterus as an in-house developmental baby-making factory is pretty remarkable.

    slinkspangspoink 問: 你好!你最喜歡人類進化的哪一個階段呢?

  • Probably the one where I started a Tumblr as a volunteer in a small university zoological collection


  • and it ended up resulting in a full-time job at a major institution. That was a good one.


  • Is that it exists at all.


  • Probably that sloths have unique symbiotic relationships with certain species of algae


  • that are only found growing in the microcosmic environments of their hosts' fur.


  • I mean - you guys are asking me to pick between some pretty major collections here at The Field Museum.

    fosdonut 問: 你最喜歡吃什麼動物?

  • We've got 3 million pinned beetles and that doesn't include the other 9 million specimens in the insect division.


  • We've hardly talked with Janet Voight about her work with deep-sea octopuses and other invertebrates,

    Thomas Nguyen 問: 在動物身體裡你最喜歡哪一個器官?

  • and let's not forget the major neglect to discuss molluscs on this show.


  • Seriously, we need more mollusc love on The Brain Scoop.

    normalbiology 問: 什麼是你最喜歡的科學傳播經驗呢?

  • Diaphonization! Also known as clearing and staining, is a process in which a specimen is injected with enzymes that render the organs transparent.


  • Then, it's submerged in a solution of dyes that either adhere to the skeleton or the muscular system,


  • resulting in a "see-through" animal with a highlighted mobility system.

    sophietheadventurer 問: 你覺得大自然最令人驚奇的是?

  • It is so cool.


  • We got it? [Tom] We got it!

    fireeyedgirl 問: 你最喜歡樹懶的哪部分?

  • Bam! [Tom] Great.
