    The sum of the first n odd numbers is n^2. Because distance = velocity times time and velocity is directly proportional to time (v=a*t, where a is acceleration), it means distance is quadratically proportional to time. Therefor, it depends on t^2, which is a sum of odd numbers!Thank you, Vsauce, for posting another really interesting video!

    Michael came to my school once to give a presentation and he is exactly as he is in his videos. Also everyone had so much anxiety about his tab management during his research period as he prepares for videos.
