Grey has finally reached Phase 3 of his Cinematic Universe, where every video is constantly crossing over and cameoing with each other, and it is incredible.

"In the land of quantum, words mean nothing, there is only math." This is the best description of quantum mechanics I have ever heard and gels well with my motto of "The less you think about quantum, the more sense it makes"

I feel like I just listened to a 17 minute long poem. The alliteration, cadence, and careful word choice was beautiful.

Me at the start: "How can it take 17 minutes to explain runway numbers?"

As a physicist, I appreciate you including so much physics in your "non-physics" video.

Me: "Why does this runway have the number 8 on it?"

As a flight instructor I really appreciate this video. I’ll be sending it to many early phase students. Thank you.

As a private pilot it's a joy to see runways explained in such a fun, lighthearted way.

As a surveyor, I wasn’t expecting this much surveying to be involved with airport runways

I love when Grey has videos about him going off on tangents to random strangers, that person is looking for an escape. As if in reality, any one of us lucky enough to be in that situation would be hanging on his every word

I love how he managed to put easter eggs from almost every single one of his past videos into this video

As always an absolute pleasure watching your videos. Thank you very much for the awesome work over the years.

I love everything about this: the way the script flows and alliterates and sort-of-rhymes; the way it ties into so many of Grey's other running gags; the way Grey's personality presents itself as the worst person ever to sit next to on an airplane; the ingenious move to place videos inside each other, Inception-style; and above all how well it demonstrates that no matter how hard you try to explain everything about a thing there are always more things to explain.

"In the world of Quantum, words mean nothing." Is the most accurate colloquial take on quantum theory possible.

As s Aircraft Maintenance Engineer, I often flew in the jump seat in the cockpit (pre-9/11) when the plane was full of PAX. Flying into BNE in Australia, there was nearly always a crosswind as it was right on the coast. Watching the pilots approach the runway with the aircraft sideways was always great. Before landing, they used to give the plane some rudder and kick the thing into line with the runway.
