  • Thankfully only about *2%* of people watching this are Anti-Vaxxers, even if the real number was double that vaccines will continue to be effective.

  • At 2:53 it said “ Big Bang” but actually God created everything and no bang happened!

  • Meat and animal products are the only foods that give me a HIGH feeling like a punch of adrenaline. It could be as simple as eating a piece of cheese while drinking milk or eating a really good quality steak lol. I would never stop eating them.

  • I have a conspiracy, anti vaxers arent real like who tf would overlook so much info blame it on "the government" or "big pharma companies" while finding info from extremely shady websites with no proof I think that they are just trolls

  • UBI is economically silly. Use common sense, who would want to work if you are taxed on hard work but not on laziness. Also, many of these studies were conducted in utopias or low population countries. In Europe, illicit drug use might be lower because its an overall wealthier, lower populated continent. Also, Kurzgesagt said that UBI is simply the redistribution of money and moving money from one place to another. However, kurzgesagt didn't specify how we where we would take the money from, the rich? well taking money from rich means less big companies, generally controlled by wealthy people, which means no tesla, no google, and no one has enough money to create something really high quality because NO ONE would have investment money to try things at the scale that business owner billionaires do. higher taxes? well higher taxes just de-incentivize doing actual work even more. Also, wealth related economics is all about comparative wealth. If everyone in the US became 3,000 dollars wealthier, then the money would just inflate because there was no actual economic growth, more money is tied to the same recources. Its like if everything in the us became more expensive, more expensive products = higher wages for producers' employees but everyone now has to pay more for everything.

  • "For the mindset of the flesh is death, but the mindset of the Spirit is life and peace."

  • Fun-o-meter more like mental health-o-meter

  • This just gave me existential crisis. Thanks kuzkezat.

  • Is this better to do with headphones or on a tv?

  • Nuclear is the future, we need to invest in it more and more

  • *Evolution NEWS: MASS injection failure:* A mass vaccination centre in the southern French city of Nice was forced to close early over the weekend after 58 people turned up for 4,000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine. Only 58 people turned up! 1. WHY didn't other turn up? *They were busy watching flat-earth truther videos.* 😁😁😁 2. Out of 58 who turned up, how many of them turned back without taking the jab ❓

  • In spanish please

  • what are we what the hell is going on its crazy to think whats out there can it end and what would the end look like why isnt there nothing what would be just blacknesss and how can just black be it has to be something but what really think about it its deep

  • 0:59 "theres always a bigger fish"

  • We did..............twice

  • Rest of the world:dead Cockroaches:Did the party start?

  • Those visuals though: Happy 420 Lol

  • Milk alternatives taste better as well. My only saddeness is cheese... there's no good cheese alternatives

  • Unaddressed issue: renewables arent 100 percent "safe" either. Solar panels break down and pollute the soil and water supplies with caustic chemicals like mercury and toxic silicates. Wind turbines interrupt bird migratory paths and are LOUD. Also very very dangerous to maintain and work on. Exploding wind turbines are extremely dangerous. Unaddressed issue: Big Oil/Gas/Coal/Power would never willingly give up the industries that make them billionaires. Oil is one of, if not the absolute, most contested resource on the planet...and lots of people have become filthy(pardon the pun) rich off It. These companies will stymie any attempt to transition to safer energy sources.

  • Very good

  • We will probably go extinct with nuclear weapons, one country will do it.

  • If its illegal then it just makes more people are curious

  • I was forced to subscribe

  • none of these are as bright as when I turn my phone on at 3AM

  • Make more space videos

  • when he said *bedrock* i was like: *WAIT THATS ILLEGAL*

  • Meh, as good as nuclear is its draw backs are not worth the benefits, the large amount of deadly radioactive waste that we still lack a safe and proven method of Permanente storage for, reactors meltdown catastrophically if anything goes wrong or breaks during a nuclear reaction irradiating large areas and killing lots people either through radiation sickness or radiation induced cancers. I say its best if we ditch Nuclear power and put our resources into developing better and safer methods of clean energy rather then wasting time and money trying to improve such a flawed and unsafe power source.

  • And every software developer in the world had a simultaneous heart attack

  • British tactic

  • 1: You wont stop climate change. A single volcano releases more greenhouse gasses in one eruption than all of humanity combined. It is a cycle, and we are but butterflies in a tornado in the grand scheme of things. 2: Nuclear is the only source of power where we can fully contain byproducts while generating sufficient prime power. 3: Nuclear (especially gen 4 and upcoming fusion) reactors allow a tremendous amount of affordable power that is unrivaled and unequalled.

  • Next video: How to get away with several war crimes

  • Imagine not knowing SpaceX is gonna get us to the moon

  • Everything is fake

  • Lol ure littery saying INtErnet is BAd then starts sponsoring a internet password changer Edit: don’t worry guys keep watching markplier @Zo Wo proved with a lot of specification saying eletronniques cant hurt you.

  • Please make more of these that was such a profound story.

  • Start with Portland

  • at the tiny virus part the bird that says "didn't see that coming!" looks like Donald Trump


  • dont smoke or else

  • Forgot about the nukes and bigger alliances part

  • Perfect video

  • "nuked" not "nuke": What if we _nuked_ a city? (The first casualty of war is supposed to be truth, not grammar.)

  • so we be punchin holes in moons with nukes now?


  • Don’t you hate when you’re minding your own business swimming in the ocean only to get killed by some Jerk wad capsule?

  • 2:08 all I really want to know is whether or not that squid made it out safely

  • The blood sucking mosquitoes have to go!

  • Why does he like nukes so much? I’m scared

  • Um, none of these theories were uplifting. They were all terrifying.

  • Ye, we do.

  • Personal answer: _I do not know._ And I don't think anyone really does. "You'll get bored of living" The world keeps evolving, new things come out all the time, the world is ever-changing, I doubt I'll get bored of living, much less considering how close we are to regular space travel.

  • Mr. Kurzgesagt please talk about the possible dream life like in Inception movie.

  • There goes 11.30 seconds I'll never get back this video is wack.

  • well humans love wars and violence

  • Please make a video a nuke to sun please

  • Why at 6:32 there is a Kurzgesagt duck?!

  • Imagine you're an alien chilling with the boys and you just see a star zoom through your galaxy with a massive engine strapped to it

  • 0:57 the “Safe Shallows”

  • Fun fact: South Africa is the only nation to totally decommission its nuclear arsenal (conspiracies withstanding).

  • I don’t know what everyone is complaining about, I get energy from food just fine. I have never had to burn coal or use a nuclear reactor...

  • It’s because they don’t eat any carbs. -Keto People

  • Me in 2021 what BBH thinks the egg is

  • Implying human-resistance to phages will last over time.

  • Watching this video as it’s snowing during mid-late April... when just yesterday it was 75F... but nah, today is 29F and snow. We’re so fucked.

  • "Eliminating all nuclear weapons and vowing never to build them again." Lmfao please do not tell me you actually think that's a viable option, as if every country on the planet would just miraculously agree to get rid of their nukes and no one would ever attempt to build them again.

  • God’s universe.

  • Thank you so much!

  • Oh god, messing with the things that make up our universe is terrifying. I hope the professionals are very sure what they're dealing with though I have faith.

  • Just let me soak in the radiation and I'll be happy.

  • "There's a visceral joy in blowing things up, is fun".

  • You eliminate nuclear weapons by using them

  • I think it should be not only every human lifespan but every lifespan including plants, animals, insects, all life that has ever existed everywhere ever. Then you get to... Dare I say... "Level Up"? Imagine how much you will learn from being every tree in existence.

  • Yo who are the people that disliked? Do they like not believe that computers exists?
