    My friends are inanimate objects. Are you ready to meet them? Cool. This is weed that's alcohol and that's cigarettes and porn. And oh yeah this is smartphone. Say hi guys.

  2. Morgan Goodman

    I love that this channel is so learning centric and in the best way. I can watch a video 10 times and learn something new every time. They are unique and fresh and stimulating but simple enough that I can learn about elementary particles as a 20 year old who sucks at math and physics. And I loveeee that you do these introspective videos. I want to know everything and understand everything but happiness escapes us all. Maybe in just some small way, but kurzgesagt changed me. The world IS more beautiful. And I'm grateful you are all in it.

  3. Game D

    Meus parabéns se quiseram fazer um vídeo MUITO ruim e com MUITOS preconceitos as brasileiros

    An CME, comets, meteors, and intense heat will take it out and restore the universal natural balance.

  12. Teru-Dale Wilson

    Watching this on SEsels at the same time it's playing on TV.

  13. Trini Red Devil

    Holy shit I want some phages

  14. Charlie Fry

    Didn't anyone notice that this guy made a video last year saying why meat is the best thing in the world and now his saying is meat unhealthy, ironic.

  15. Moses Jones

    I really feel bad for all of us because we have to be here and we were never properly prepared for this experience. Life is overrated. It's almost as if we seen someone else do it then thought to ourselves "I can do that" then boom we are here.

  16. Rajesh Kumar

    Best video ever watched

  17. DiscreetKid

    If phages evolve... Wont they evolve so much to the point where they can attack humans?

  18. Craig Murphy

    Wow cool story bro

  19. matt8863

    All you need is to throw some money making scheme into the midst human will make it work.

  26. Manoj Jain

    OMG. I never realized that body cells also know the art of "sacrifice". These cells are great warriors with true team spirit and fantastically organized. They just need one thing from us i. e. CARE. Love your body, nourish and keep it well.

  27. xxCrimsonSpiritxx

    So I recently was told by my ex herself that she doesn't believe in vaccines and that she didn't vaccinate her son, when I tried to explain to her how dangerious that was she said "his immunity system will take care of it" when I tried to explain how stupid that was she threw the "I'm his mother and I know what's best for him" card.. Suffice to say; I'm glad she is an ex, I'd hate to have to be going through courts for custedy right now if that kid was mine, still can't help but feel bad for him If you're a mother or a father, don't be fucking stupid, and vaccinate your fucking child, no excuse in putting their lives at risk just because you're stupid and ignorant, it's not fair for them if you are

  28. Arcamster

    What is life?

  29. johan indra Permana

  35. Captain Ireland

    People with autism just got a lower frame rate

  36. Moses Jones

    Ever see some horrible shit happen to someone and be like "better you than me"? This video changes everything. I don't want to be that guy who gets eaten alive or have his balls cut off or the lady that is raped by her dad or forced to bind her feet or any of that horrible shit. Life is overrated. And to be fair I don't want to be the billionaire playboy that have sex with different beautiful women every night. Im good with not even existing if that's the case. Why would I sign up for this? FUCK! I'M TRULY TERRIFIED. And why is earth the only setting we incarnate with all the environments in the known universe? Why can't I live on another planet? This is so dumb.

  37. Patricia Handa

    Watch a video of a child with whooping cough, then tell me you won't vaccinate. Video of a child with measles also exists, not as gut-wrenching, but still looks very not fun.

  38. UXSpecialist

    Guess what people, global warming is caused by the sun 🌞. The Earth and sun are too massive, just like they were for the bomb to make any noticeable difference

  59. Victoria matthews

    The Coronavirus experience is going to change societies worldwide. Through decades, the very rich were always valued/recognized whether their wealth was inherited or was accumulated. The unskilled, the uneducated, the starving poor created the unsanitary conditions to make this deadly virus that affected the lower class, the middle class, and the rich as much as the poor. The concept of caring for the “Universal Family” will need to limit the amount of money that a billionaire can accumulate in order to rescue the very poor who scavenge for food and shelter in every country. Universal health measures will need to be regulated in peoples’ interaction with animals, food, environment, and fellow human beings. A new world order is coming where value will not be based on age, race, sex, or money, and the world will be at peace to preserve us, earthlings.

    Why the fuck would you throw an elephant off a skyscraper???

  61. Hayden Hoodless

    Can we use bacteria to kill viruses?

    1. GTA and Apple channel

      Hayden Hoodless maybe if we can actually modify everything from size, Speed, Resistant,… - Just Like Hack in video games there aren’t any limited unlike evolution which is it has to give up something to get something

    2. Hayden Hoodless

      GTA and Apple channel I know that bacteriophage are viruses. I was just wondering if we could do the opposite and use bacteria to kill viruses.

    3. GTA and Apple channel

      Hayden Hoodless and bacteriophage is a Virus ( Bacteriophage is literally mean Bacteria Eater)

    4. GTA and Apple channel

      Hayden Hoodless not yet

    Nucleus. The “core” of an atom is it’s Nucleus. It’s OK to go ahead and call it by it’s name. Nucleus. Sure, it has a couple more syllables. But folks are here to learn, and terminology is a critical part of learning. Nucleus.

  63. ルーカスアルタリク

  75. Elias Stouraitis

    I wish I could find a good source on the actual livestock farming efficiency. This means taking into account both meat and byproducts and the actual needs of humans (protein and fat requirements mostly). Sure grain is better energy wise, but it doesn't have a high protein content. Is meat less efficient than other protein and fat sources? Also what about insects. How they play into this. I don't think that the point is more calories per square meter. It's more of "what a human needs" per square meter. PS. Your content is amazing.

  76. Chris Young

    GoOd mOrning! You have been in quarantine for 9, 9, 9, 9, 9...
