I guess that was supposed to be a cliff-hanger. He did quite a bit more work with the big block in season two:

That has thirteen videos about Saturns!

I was totally going to work on projects today, but my stomach was messed up. It is a mild annoyance now, but my brother keeps coughing, and he has a fever.
I have had a negligible fever all week, but I am hardly coughing.

Hey! My throat feels okay!

I gave my brother a bag of cough drops and he ate three immediately.

It is awesome how I will repeatedly and loudly tell him to or to not do something and he completely ignores me.

Before the pandemic a friend realized that my brother wasn't washing his hands, and now telling him to wash his hands is just another routine--if he remembers he will make sounds until we remember.

However despite telling him "roll up your sleeves, water first, rub your hands together, and use your wrist" he never rolls up his sleeves, always gets soap first, and not only does he never rub his hands together, he never holds more than his fingertips under the water.

Sometimes he turns off the water with his wrist, but often I remind him and he uses his hand.

Every single time he goes to the bathroom I am supposed to stop what I am doing and not provide step-by-step instructions because he will ignore me, but hold the arms of my adult brother, and make him do everything as correctly as possible.

I am pretty sure that I posted the Saturn videos, but freebeard made my post explode with his mind.

It is the only logical explanation!

I kept checking and he finally posted a new video after two weeks!

He adjusted the governor, fixed some stuff, and increased the top speed, lamenting she's giving it all she's got, but there is too much aerodynamic drag.

Aerodynamic drag?!

I put my fingers on my temples and grunt.

Your post made my browser explode. but Chromium is, to quote Neidermeyer from Animal House, 'worthless and weak'.

I used Opera for years and years, but Chromium just isn't the same.

I looked around to see what's available. Firefox is the only non-weirdo brower (Vivaldi, Nidori), but it's rated as slower.

Had you considered that Pluto hasn't had a single year since the Founding of the USofA?

Notice how Earth years bunch up around the Perihelion.

That 3-cyl 722cc still seems too underpowered anyway. Sometimes I wonder how some of those horizontal-single engines ranging from 0.9L to 1.5L could fare in a normal car but they tend to be even less rev-happy.

The entire robot cantina came down with "The latest update of That Which Can't be Mentioned on YouTube."

Is that still verbotten or is this like him referring to "The Jungle Site?"

They also had a cold snap and some pipes froze, so the entire video was saying "Happy New Year!," explaining the delays, and installing a voltmeter to show his tiny alternator keeps his motorcycle battery charged: Happy New Year!

Except you, freebeard.

Okay.

Maybe.
