    • Hey, Destin! Video suggestion here: Why does a thin stream of water (falling from the faucet for instance) form ripples before touching an object. Surely the surface tension has a role in it, but I can't understand how the molecules interact against the gravity. Greetings from Brazil 🙏

  • Hey guys. Have you talked about this worm "issue" with a professional zoologist? The non magnetic worms seem to look different to me from the magnetic ones - maybe it's got nothing to do with the soil but with the species. I'm not a zoologist or whatsoever - I'm a sport scientist and engineer who knows nothing about animals. However, what I know is that there are such things as magnetosomes - those are small magnetic particles in some living organisms. Migration birds or fish use those magnetosomes to navigate during migration. I can imagine that some worms could be equipped with magnetosomes as well, to navigate underground/ in the dark. Maybe you can go ahead with this small piece of kick-off knowledge and do further experiments or ask a worm specialist ;-) However, I don't know how strong those magnetosomes are and how high the concentration in living organisms is, but I would say that you shouldn't attribute the magnetic effect to the soil at this point of "research" ;-) Best Wishes from Germany Dominic

  • Worms need to swallow some grit so they can store it in their crops to help digest food. Maybe they swallowed the iron powder on purpose to store the grit.

  • The ferrous and non-ferrous worms were different species. The pinker ones you had on the pavement being the classic deep divers that often get drowned out of their holes in the rain, and the darker ones being more of lateral movers. I wonder if that had/has any impact

  • those worms eat dirt digest the ingredient they want and dump out rest. and if you take random samples of dirt and hover magnet some ferromagnetic metals would stick to magnet. so same metals could be inside that worm. and as i saw in video only that part of worm with magnetic metal was sticking to magnet.
