lol I remember watching this and being baffled at all the added in sounds.
There are some good American documentaries if that is what you wanted to compare. I wouldn't really call "Monster bug wars" a documentary really anyway it's more made for commercial tv.
I was de-egging my swan plants from monarch eggs today (they're just new and i want them to grow big) and i found this little guy on one of them. He's decided thats his new home it seems. He's not even 3cm long. So teeeny.
Not sure what to do about it. Its kind of in the way.
In the way of what? But if it really interferes with your work, you could always just put it on another plant or even take it into your home in a small critter keeper or the like. If that's allowed were you live, of course.
Well every day i have to remove eggs or they wiĺl hatch and decimate the plants. And if ges there i will worry about getting him in my hair or kiĺing him.
>was actually going to spray pesticide onthe plants today
Huh, okay. I don't think it would jump in your hair though, just try putting a little container over it and put your hand under it or a sheet of paper and carry it to the next bush you can find, that won't be sprayed.
This is kinda relevant so I might as well ask
Where can I find video documentaries about bees and their habits? Not stuff like OP's bottom example or forced interaction with other insects (eg 10 HORNETS VS 100 HONEYBEES GOD DAMN) but just chill info on them
Bees and ants fascinate me to no end
Basically americans are like severely retarded ADHD kids, they can't ignore the pretty colored flashing lights, rapid and sudden camera movements and overly EPIC commentary
>don't move from your TV! Next is EXTREME ACCOUNTANTS! watch the AWESOME white FUCKING collars doing the most INSANE things with INCREDIBLE data sheets! In today's episode: Josh is plowing through a BRUTAL form at AMAZING SPEED, but he can't be prepared for the CATASTROPHE around the corner: the office has RUN OUT OF PEN CAPS! The whole staff is SHOCKED AND IN TATTERS!
Buggin' with ruud is a pretty good american based programme. But I do agree. Seems they need to cater to a shorter attention span. It is hilarious when they add sound effects like sceeching to bugs.
It's more that it's targeted at actual children instead of autistic adults. That's the sort of shit that you watch in fifth grade science class so the teacher can say, "See? I told you insects are cool."
FUCKING this. Think of this like watching Bill Nye vs something like nova's older programs
The idea is make younger audiences more interested in educational programming, which more important than older ones. So it makes plenty of sense... At least the The initial idea. And it works in some sense, a lot of us still are right now having remembila about some eductional shows we watched as kids, a few where parts or used parts of documentaries.
>"oy look at that mantis over there. Ain't he a beauty?"
>"watch the mantis eat that spider. Just bit the fucker's head clean off. Spiders don't wanna fuck with this cunt."
>"now let's see what happens if I tickle the mantis on his balls."
>the man molests the mantis.
>"crikey, that mantis is real pissed off now."
>the mantis bites the man, kills him.
>MONSTER BUG WARS
Why the fuck did they give the bugs animal noises??
You run the world, so it's only fair. Besides if the Chinese get in power I don't think there will be much room for banter anymore. Might as well enjoy this mutual contempt (gun crazy yanks vs Euros who can't get any serious decisions done).
I remember watching one such documentary on satellite when i was young and it featured a kind of duelling spider, with dubbed over sword noises, and for a while i thought how cool it was that with advanced american microphones we found out that spider fangs make sword noises.
Fucking american documentaries.
