Know the quiet place within your heart and touch the rainbow of possibility; be
alive to the gentle breeze of communication, and please stop being such a jerk.

The Warped Side of the Universe
https://www.etymonline.com/search?q=warp wrote:
<<warp (v.) "to bend, twist, distort," Old English weorpan "to throw, throw away, hit with a missile," from Proto-Germanic *werpanan "to fling by turning the arm" (source also of Old Saxon werpan, Old Norse verpa "to throw," Swedish värpa "to lay eggs," Old Frisian werpa, Middle Low German and Dutch werpen, German werfen, Gothic wairpan "to throw"), from Latin verber "whip, rod"), from root *wer- (2) "to turn, bend." Connection between "turning" and "throwing" is perhaps in the notion of rotating the arm in the act of throwing; compare Old Church Slavonic vrešti "to throw." The meaning "twist out of shape" is first recorded c. 1400; intransitive sense is from mid-15c.>>

Art, you make me tired.

You post a headline, "The Warped Side of the Universe". And you post a video.

Nothing else.

No information about the video. No comments on why we ought to watch it. No words on how long the video is, to give us a chance to decide whether or not we have time to watch it.

I give up, Art. I can't even start watching the videos that you present this way.
