I thought he was going to say the headphones button Is so cool because they pause the music and turn up the outside noise to hear people better, not just to pause music like my $40cdn Poms that are a knockoff of Airbuds that are a knockoff of airpods lol but good enough.

Did anyone else see "Why don't subs run out of air?" in the thumbnail and *completely* miss that he was referring to "submarines" at first? I can't be the only one who very much misread that.

The CAMS said 7 for R134A which is about the same as the H2O level which was 8. How dangerous is this R134A leak? Does anyone know and how they plan to fix it?

The nuclear reactor/reaction is used to generate heat with boils water which creates steam which turns electricity generating turbines. That’s how all nuclear reactors work. Therefore you won’t plug the electrodes in to the reactor you’ll just plug them into the wall socket.

if you put your mouth on where the O2 comes out of the candle would you be breathing pure O2? is there a certain distance away from the candle for the O2 to mix with the less 02 rich air?

Regarding the preheater: usually there is a rich to lean a mean exchanger in that position. Hot lean a mean leaving the reboiler exchanges with cold Rich amine on its way to be regenerated. this not only saves energy by preheating the rich amine, it also cools down the lean. Hotter amine doesn't absorb the CO2 as well

We had three ways; 1. Oxygen banks-bleed it into the atmosphere. 2. Oxygen candles. Heat them and they omit O2 3. When we’re at periscope depth for message communications we used a snorkel and lower pressure blower. We did not have an oxygen generator

I have an interesting video for you! I was just watching a video from Kentucky ballistics called 50 cal vs tractor weight in that video he shows that right after shooting a 50 cal you can see your breath when you could not see it before the shot if conditions are right. Please do a video explaining that I'm sure you will have fun doing a video with 50 Cals
