    This is no different. And to express his geeky experiences as both alien and passionately loving is incredible.

    Interesting story about aliens by John, Noramally he gives modern inventions in physics to solve unknown situations. Stlll we can’t solve many myths. For an example think about horoscopes. you may refer http://horoscopes.proastro.com
    so we must compare technology and myths.

    I love the concepts he makes in this video, it really brings out a lot of personality that not a lot of people in the media have. The whole geeky experience is a bonus because it sets out a cool background that not many have, and it is just entertaining to listen to him.

    John has always been one of those guys who flirts on the edge with amazing, yet extremely grounding insights.

    This is no different. And to express his geeky experiences as both alien and passionately loving is incredible.

    Gotta’ love this guy.
