    Did I miss something? I viewed the video again but didn't see anything references ribosomes as being part of the cytoplasm as question #3 asks. Well done video! Thanks.

      Hey Rusty, just to clarify for ya... The video is pretty misguiding--- cytoplasm includes everything in the cell except the nucleus. Nathan's video is a better depiction of "cytosol" which is only the aqueous solution within a cell.
