  • Hey there, Welcome to Life Noggin!

  • I get a lot of questions on so many topics, even some questions that are just about me,

  • so i've gathered some of those questions, and i'm calling it "DEAR BLOCKO"

  • Today's Dear Blocko is about the human body! ...and my body for some reason.

  • Zach asks - Can you donate blood after death?

  • Blood can technically be used after death, though most places don't let you donate it.

  • According to the book Stiff: The Curious Life of Human Cadavers, the blood inside a dead

  • body stays usable for about six to eight hours after death.

  • The first cadaveric blood transfusion actually happened in Russia back in 1930, but it never

  • really caught on.

  • Next question, Kardo asked me Why do we have / get body hair?

  • You humans are thought to have body hair as a sort of evolutionary leftover from your

  • hairier ancestors.

  • You actually have about the same density of hair follicles as your ape friends, your hairs

  • are just much smaller and finer.

  • It might not seem like your body hair does much, but recent research suggests it might

  • help you detect bedbugs and bloodsucking insects.

  • This next question comes from Serena Is nail-biting actually bad for you?

  • Biting your nails might be seen as a bad habit, but it could actually be good for your body!

  • According to a recent study, biting your nails may have a small protective effect against

  • common allergies.

  • Since nail-biting can have long-lasting downsides, like permanently damaging the nail tissue,

  • I wouldn't start it up if you don't already do it, but it might not be all that bad!

  • Aurora asked: Why do people get acne?

  • Acne is super common for teenagers and young adults, but can occur at any age.

  • People tend to get acne when they're young because of the hormonal changes that go along

  • with puberty.

  • Beyond your hormones, you get pimples when your follicles get blocked and oil builds

  • up under your skin.

  • Other factors might also play a role, like certain medications, menstruation, and emotional

  • stress.

  • Now we can answer some questions that you guys have had about me

  • Justin - Why do you move your head when you talk?

  • Idk...that just happens when i speak?

  • Oh i'm conscious of it!

  • My animator didn't give me a face or even a mouth so that movement was the next best thing!

  • Austin - Does Blocko have organs?

  • I don't have any organs but I do have these.

  • I guess it's true, It's what's on the inside that counts!

  • BOOOO!!

  • Hey! Who said that!?

  • If i had a face you could totally tell that i was angry right now!

  • Last question from Carly - Where does Blocko go when the computer turns off?

  • Oh, simple. I go to the void.

  • It's quite comfortable.

  • Sometimes people scream into it though which is frustrating.

  • So let me know in the comment section below if you have any questions that you want me to answer.

  • They can be about your world, or my world!

  • If you wanna send me anything you've made from the real world

  • or have a question for Dear Blocko, I now have a mailbox just for that!

  • All the stuff will transfer over to my world. Don't worry!

  • I'll feature some of the stuff you send me at the end of a future episode of Dear Blocko!

  • I can't wait! Thank you so much for all the support!

  • If you enjoyed this video, check out the video we did where i enter your human world.
