Auralnauts' YouTube Videos

Auralnauts' YouTube channel has many cool and funny videos -- "... We change the dialogue in movies to turn them into comedies.

We basically do whatever we want and hope you enjoy it, because thinking too hard about what people want tends to ruin the creative process."

  2. Flu Weather: It's Not the Cold, It's the Humidity -- "Folk wisdom has it that cold weather predisposes you to a cold or flu bug. The truth is a bit more complicated—and a lot more interesting. Research over the past few years has zeroed in on atmospheric moisture as the main weather-related factor in flu transmission. The findings are especially relevant this winter, with the U.S. in the throes of one of its worst winters of flu in years, and its driest winter in more than three decades. The key seems to be humidity levels inside, where people gather (and cough) during cold weather. Because it takes less moisture to saturate cold air than warm air, there can easily be high relative humidity (RH) outside on a bitterly cold day.
