    Amazon has Tom Grogan for $5 for the Kindle.  I’ll start reading in a few minutes. Thanks for the rec.

    2:20 So I can assume Dr. PEPper came out before PEPsi?

    I’m incredibly excited about the food history thing, I was just talking to my mom about how interesting food history is!!!

    My goals for 2018: Make a table top role-play game series for my channel, and edit my novel-length rough draft of a story.

      Brynley Louise good luck!

    • An artist theory on the physics of 'Time' as a physical process. Quantum Atom Theory says:

      Sounds good!!! I would like to bring in this theory that can be explained by just one equation (E=ˠM˳C²)∞. With energy ∆E equals mass ∆M linked to the Lorentz contraction ˠ of space and time. The Lorentz contraction ˠ represents the time dilation of Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. We have energy ∆E slowing the rate that time ∆t flows as a universal process of energy exchange or continuous creation. Mass will increase relative to this process with gravity being a secondary force to the electromagnetic force. The c² represents the speed of light c radiating out in a sphere 4π of EMR from its radius forming a square c² of probability. We have to square the probability of the wave-function Ψ because the area of the sphere is equal to the square of the radius of the sphere multiplied by 4π. This simple geometrical process forms the probability and uncertainty of everyday life and at the smallest scale of the process is represented mathematically by Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle ∆×∆pᵪ≥h/4π. In such a theory we have an emergent future unfolding photon by photon with the movement of charge and flow of EM fields. This gives us a geometrical reason for positive and negative charge with a concaved inner surface for negative charge and a convexed outer surface for positive charge. The brackets in the equation (E=ˠM˳C²)∞ represent a dynamic boundary condition of an individual reference frame with an Arrow of Time or time line for each frame of reference. The infinity ∞ symbol represents an infinite number of dynamic interactive reference frames that are continuously coming in and out of existence.

    my…ocd needing him to wipe his left nostril…I cant stop looking at it

    It would be awesome to tram up with Townsends for some founding fathers revolutionary War history and food. 8D

    When my dad was in his late teens and early twenties, he was in a dance band that had a small sponsorship from Dr. Pepper. They gave the band matching jackets and everything. Thanks for raising awareness about the history of Dr. Pepper, John. 

    Also, one of my goals for 2018 is to be more involved in the communities that surround my interests. I rarely comment on youtube, so this comment is a step in that direction.

    • Alissa Frederick says:

      I have always found great fulfillment from everything I have volunteered for (currently that is a theater, a school, and blood bank). Go out there and enjoy!!

    • Mark Dowdy says:

      I get it… I was for a long time a passive consumer of YouTube. I now try to comment on every new video of my favorite creators, as an exercise of involvement. Best of luck to you!

    • Jonathan Barton says:

      Thanks! It’s so easy for me to be passive on YouTube or other social media platforms, but I’m looking forward to challenging myself to be more involved!

      Does your wife serve mamossas during the lesson? I like art with mamossas

  8. Loras Tyrell says:

    you could do an entire podcast about books that were wildly popular in their day but now are almost completely forgotten, one per episode!

  9. Chocolateer890 says:

    My goal is to remember that I am valuable and worthy of human connection and to take better care of my mental health. 2017 was a year where I overly pressured myself and stressed out about my relationships with other people, and I hope I can relax a little more in 2018.

  10. Simply Historical says:

    One recommendation for a dish: Murgh Musallam, which is an Indian chicken dish that originated during the early periods of Muslim control in northern India. Ibn Battuta once wrote that it was the favorite dish of Delhi’s Sultan Muhammad bin Tughlaq. It was also wildly popular among the Muslim rulers of the northern Indian princely states under British rule, namely Awadh.

  11. Pony Riggs says:

    This channel gives me so much hope! It makes me feel like we might not all bed doomed!

  12. 0utSource14 says:

    Ideas for Cooking History. Make food that the wealthy/royals eats and the poor/working classes eats through out history and compare them. Army foods IE what were the Roman legionaries eating during a campaign, what were the differences between meals for soldiers in opposing sides like in the american civil war or in the world wars.

  13. Megan Jensen says:

    I’m going to write in my journal everyday

  14. Freelance Translator Tips says:

    How about Ramona, by Helen Hunt Jackson? (“A book that nobody reads anymore from a deeply polarized time in American history that might have some relevance for us”)

  15. polkadottedpolak says:

    Resolution for you, John: Check the cave for bats before filming. 😉

  16. Kelsey KINE says:

    Suggestion: the channel Townsends ( ) is a great historical channel that focuses on cooking. I immediately thought of them when you mentioned the ideals for your future cooking episodes. They are very historically accurate and use true to time utensils and recipies, which is amazing and rare; I hope you could get some ideas or at the most a collaboration. Good luck and I anticipate these videos!

  17. Brooke Gantman says:

    For the History/Cooking videos, you could talk about food that various classes ate during the Depression.

  18. Izzy-Fizz says:

    Yesss cooking history sounds amazing . Dammit I love all of this.

  19. Christina Radford says:

    My goal is to write a screenplay for a short film and be nicer to myself!

  20. Simon Barnes says:

    Awesome encouragement John! I’m sure you’ll nail this year. My goal for the new year is to upload two videos a week. Pretty daunting task for me, but definitely manageable if I use my time well.
