    No, opening a soda can does not count as an explosion. An explosion is where the container fails due to pressure within it. Opening a soda cannons where the container fails because an outside force is applied to it, rupturing the can and releasing the pressure

    I love this video. Always watch it. It brought a new look to Until Dawn. However, now I have a question about what you're saying Matpat. If Schizophrenia shows up in people around 16-20, but he was being treated for depression at 11, could it be that he was being mistreated then? Or was he depressed as well as a child? Thanks ! :D

    If that's true, then the Piglins need to attack the Enderman as well for the entirety of your own theory to work. If, as you said in "The Lost History of Minecraft's Enderman," The Enderman are an evolutionarily mutated version of the Ancient Builders as a result of the End when you've also stated in this video (along with the lost history of the Wither) Wither Skeletons are the Ancients as well as a result of the Nether. Then for piglins to have this hatred for the ancients, wouldn't they have a want/need to attack both? Just pointing this out that once the update is out, and if they do, you got yourself a solid theory here my friend.

    Question for MatPat: Have you noticed the picture of the girl in the beginning cutscene looks just like Frisk? Maybe one of her ancestors just happened to be the one who sealed the barrier. It could be Toriel in the beginning cutscene while she was young and I think that was connected as well and I really think that theory could be proved for a later video, because of the undertale stuff.

    I actually think, that the Dragon is an protector for the enderman, brought there from the ancient humans, do defend the Portal to not let anyone out to bring the wither into their world again. The reason because they dont attac the Player that attacs the enderdragon, is because 1 they are the same race and 2 If an human survived Maybe it killed the wither or, number 3 was fleing too. The Dragon still attacs, because thats what he has been trained to do, with his Trainer enderman Long dead or in the nether or overworld, unable to return to stop the dragon

    My theory is when the 'evolve', they are actually maturing, but the game's limitations prevent it from showing its in-between states. So a Riachu is actually the adult form of a Pikachu, but thanks to a lot of aggressive traits, most Pokemon probably do not get enough nutrition in the wild to mature.
