                          Real question. At 4:50 if you looked at your hand would you be able to see it or would nothing visible be there?

                                        I thought to a photon traveling at c, its time is meaningless. Time stop or won't exist for photon or whatever move at c.

In the past few hours I've been recommended, and actually watched, an hour long video of a guys clearing/clearing a flooding lake's overflow drain, wacthed beavers build dams, slow-mo Konai trick shots, Drag racing and donhtd, Bugatti Chiron's titanium brake caliper testing, vines, bad drivers, and a guy who essentially almost kills himself all the time, Usually with electricity , and may more werid videos lol. I love it
