Biology, awesome; physics, awesome; this video exploring human bigness, awesome

How big can a human get?  Let’s explore the biology of square-cube laws to find the answer.  And what does it mean to be “big”?   How far does your sound or your smell travel?  The answers, my friend, are quite literally blowing in the wind.

While it may wax philosophic at times, this video is pretty interesting.  Plus, it’s kind of cool to think that your photons–and, in a manner of speaking, you, too–are immortal.
