My personal favorite is the Tinker Crate, which focuses on Science and Engineering. My daughter prefers the Doodle Crate.

These people gave us a free 4-wheeler excursion and it was COMPLETELY AWESOME. Please visit their website.

Instead of saving for my kids’ college, I make videos using the money I would have saved.
The thought is it will help educate the world as a whole, and one day generate enough revenue to pay for their education. Until then if you appreciate what you’ve learned in this video and the effort that went in to it, please SHARE THE VIDEO!

Warm Regards,

    I know I'm late to the party but I confess, I wondered for a brief moment if that water was potable. But then I watched Mr. D drink it, underwater. How awesome is that? To experience consumption of water, purposefully, under water just tickles me. I still like sports 🙂

  2. Strengthening the foundation of family does indeed start with mom and dad. They need to be good leaders to their kids. Aside all the neat science and how you dissect it, you and your wife also bring this joy and strength to my vision. I'm sure you guys are a great team and it shows watching and listening to what your kiddos say and do. 👍

    You wife seemed super psyched.

  4. 6:05

    Plot twist: somebody peed in that water

  5. Fuck You says:

    Just saying Iceland basically if you come here and have no days with wind and rain your super lucky

  6. I don't have a wife yet, but if Jesus bless me with one I think I want to have a marriage life like yours. God bless :).

  7. Beautiful family. Thank you, Destin (and Tara) for helping me get smarter every day.

  10. I wonder if aerogel is a better idea for such dives.

  11. It appears that y'all have a great relationship. Congratulations. May y'all have many great years to come.

  12. Jack Mirly says:

    What would happen if there was an earthquake right then?

  13. Alex Gray says:

    Destin, Tom Scott just called you a liar. You should call him to fight.

  16. Im 13 years old from Iceland and ive snorkled in silfra

  17. Austin Vice says:

    How dangerous is it diving down there? I mean I see all these boulders sitting at the bottom of the ridge and the walls look like they’re about to crumble apart. Do you have to keep a major eye out for falling rocks down there?….

  18. Brave wilderness came to that exact spot

  19. Usually you just pee in your wet suit to warm yourself up a little bit. I don't think that would work in this suit 😁😁😁
