  1. Edison was a horrible human being. As for the National Parks, they can give us back all the people that went missing in them, anytime at all. Great video though!

  2. I REALLY REALLY wish this dude could SLOWWW WAAYY down while he's talking! I could understand for the most part lol.. but my 5 yr old daughter, not so much lol. That got me thinkin.. and rewinding.. and replaying.. most of this whole video, damn if I didn't realise he does talk SUPERR fast! Tried 10×'s to hear what year Gerite, the old dino was found! Literally sounds like I hit fast forward when he says the year.. but no.. ?? Wth ppl?

  3. TRY METAL DETECTING THERE . FINES ,JAIL TIME , PROPERTY LOSS.– MORE THAN DRUG DEALERS GET ! PUBLIC LANDS MY ASK ..!— MORE LIKE 'STAY OUTTA HERE '' TILL WE CHARGE YOU MO MONIES..! VOTE ALL OLD HAGS OUT POWER..

  4. Wondering if you're going to mention the Mayan city that was recently found in Chattanooga National Park. They're still restricting access to that area of the park. I'm wondering if they're trying to destroy the evidence or trying to clear it and do actual studies on it.
