          My dad had a massive ischemic stroke in his late 40's. He is 50 now, but he has severe cognitive and physical disabilities. His dad had 2, and I have an aunt (I think. She's my great aunt's daughter, so potentially second cousin?) who died of one. She was close to my age. My best friend's mom had an ischemic stroke shortly after my dad. She is only a few years older than my dad. She is doing really well because she got excellent health care right away. She can drive on her own with modifications, she can walk un assisted, and she didnt lose her fantastic wonderful personality. From where I'm standing, it's looking like stroke victims are getting younger. Is this a genetics thing? Or is it our diets? Or another factor?

          Also, I'm home sick from work and your videos are entertaining and informative. Forgive me for commenting about 5 billion times, I'm going through a lot of your videos as I'm new to your channel...

                          Would love you to break down how they treated open wounds - by pouring BOILING WINE onto them! I die a little inside every time I read that or saw it in the show. Not boilED wine... not boiled water... not just wine... but boilING wine. As it it is BOILING HOT. OMG whyyyyyyyyyyy?!?!?!?!

                                  As a violinist, I am going to take the time to say... THE GAME OF THRONES THEME IS TORTURE TO PLAY. Especially the 2nd violin part. It's just: "duh duh dudu duh duh dudu duh duh" over and OVER AGAIN. It's annoying.

                                    I'm sure any video you do will be great! But maybe diving a little deeper into GOT? I like what AJ Rosen suggested, Greyscale!

                                                        General question about the definition of "dwarfism". Why is 4'9" the delimiter of dwarfism? My sister has been 4'9" for most of her decades, perfectly proportionate, just short. Our mom was 4'11", and, yes, I celebrated the day when I hit 5'.I may be sensitive on this issue, since the byul of my family is short in stature. I think there needs to be some more clinical delineation between a specific height and a diagnosis that is for which height is a correlation. Also, Peter Dinklage is a seriously undervalued actor. He's amazing.

                                                          I have nothing against mutts, as a matter of fact both my dogs are, but it’s a really big pet peeve of mine when people claim that their dog is healthy because it’s a mutt. It really does not matter if your dog is purebreed or not. What matters is that you get all the information available of the lineage before you get the puppy. And all the abnormalities and diseases etc are much better documented on purebreeds. Mutts aren’t healthier than purebreeds. But there are a lot of purebreed breeders who don’t care about the health of their dogs as much as they should and pair their dogs based on how they do in shows and competitions cause they want more winning dogs. That is why people have this idea that mutts are healthy just cause they’re mutts. And that leads to more people getting dogs from puppyfactories, or just from unethical people who breed mutts just for the money and don’t care about their health any more than unethical purebreed breeders.

Could you discuss the genetic differences between 1st generation (bother/sister, child/parent) and 3rd generational incest (Breeding with your cousin twice removed)? We talked about this in Intro to Anthropology and I found it really interesting that the latter has actually about the same occurrence of genetic abnormality in offspring as offspring of two completely unrelated parents.
