  • Hey there!

  • Welcome to another episode of "Dear Blocko!"

  • This is the show where I answer your questions about your world and my world!

  • Let's get started with our first question.

  • I am nerdy asks: " Dear Blocko, what happens when you get covered in acid? Love your videos! Keep up the good work!"

  • Thanks, I am Nerdy.

  • I am nerdy as well!

  • To answer your question, it can really differ a bit depending on what acid you're talking about.

  • While old movie supervillains would make you think that acids are just some sort of body-dissolving vat of goo, acid products can vary quite a bit, from toilet cleaners, to battery acid and hydrofluoric acid.

  • But let's focus on that last one for a moment since it's a good example of what acids can do.

  • Used in a variety of applications from glass and metal etching to fluorescent light bulbs, hydrofluoric acid can pose a serious threat to you if you come into contact with it.

  • While it may not quite melt your hand off like you're thinking, hydrofluoric acid can travel quickly through your skin and into your bodily tissues where it damages your cells.

  • Get into direct skin contact with the acid and you could end up with severe burns that can take several hours to develop.

  • But it's not just getting it on your skin that you have to worry about.

  • Breathing in the acid can damage your lungs, causing them to swell and accumulate fluid.

  • It can really be quite dangerous.

  • Second question up. Nintendo and Apple fan asks, " Dear Blocko, Why do we hear a ringing when it's too quiet?"

  • While I'm certainly not a doctor, and should only really be trusted to talk about pixelitis.

  • It sounds like you might be referring to "tinnitus."

  • Tinnitus is the perception of a sound, often a ringing, in the ears.

  • These noises could also come in the form of a buzzing, chirping, hissing, or humming sound.

  • A variety of different things can cause tinnitus from inner ear hair cell damage to loud noises at a concert, sometimes it's only temporarily,

  • but it's typically not a cause for worry beyond the immediate issues the noises cause you.

  • The sounds can come and go or be constant buzz, and can vary in loudness when they're there.

  • The sounds are often more noticeable or get worse when you don't really have that much background noise,

  • so you'll probably notice it the most when it's silent around you, like when you're trying to fall asleep in a quiet room.

  • And now it's time for questions about me and my world.

  • Paper Bag asks "Dear Blocko, can you please take us on a date with you and Circlia? You are awesome by the way! Thank you so much!"

  • Dates with Circlia are just like dates in the human world.

  • Sometimes we go to the movies, or a walk through Blocktown park.

  • And sometimes we're fighting pink aliens with mind lasers on the planet BX-13.

  • You know, just like a normal couple would.

  • Howling Shadow asks, " Dear Blocko, did you know that one of your friends is a glitch monster?"


  • Hey friends!

  • Wait, where Rhombus?

  • So do you have any questions about your world or my world?

  • Let me know right now in the comments section below and make sure you use the hashtag "Dear Blocko" so I can find it.
