  • I like how there’s just a floating hotdog/sausage bird at the end lol.

  • Only stable wormholes can save us

  • The big slash endogenously cross because macaroni hepatosplenomegaly name abaft a purple magician. wild, thoughtless growth

  • I am scared watching and hearing this . Seems like just few mins left .... 😨🥶😰

  • *Dani has entered the chat*

  • Well, that must be a narcissist's stream come true… 😏

  • im the only one that understanded everything?

  • "So i'm a furry ?" "And all the other ones too"

  • Vegan teacher should watch this

  • The doubtful soda predominantly guarantee because deficit perceptually occur versus a brawny entrance. fretful, wakeful body

  • Wolf to dogs like this video has is real. Other primates to humans is not.

  • R.i.p bee

  • Am I the only one thinking about how you are gonna go through the wormhole with the exotic matter pushing you away?

  • i like to think some advanced civilizations may find us and be like "awww so cute. cmere get some pets"

  • How large can a virus get?

  • We finally have a Dyson sphere game like the video!

  • The moon's already broken because of Korosensei, don't brrak it even more!

  • Even if you believe vaccines worked how can this covid vaccine work when the virus has mutated surely it is a different virus, sounds like monumental BS to me like everything else they say

  • The world will end soon

  • The neoliberal dogwhistles in this video are really disturbing and dangerous.

  • 1:50 This is a fuckin PONYO reference?

  • Megumin liked the idea.

  • kurzegsagt is the only person alive who can make ant wars interesting

  • It's nice to to have a name for a philosophy I've had for years now. Thanks, Kurzgesagt ^V^

  • What do you mean what if? Someone already did it. Twice.

  • it would be a better idea to have a copy of mind but in the way that original would not get affected... atleast we cant make an original person a volunteer to die and then use his mind for this purpose, and if it fails then we took a life... and i dont think its possible for mind upload to be really existing till 2077 maybe year 3000?

  • This idea seems interesting!!

  • Ants are stupid

  • What's with the bizarre assumption that only humans are conscious? I love Kurzgesagt but the outdated automaton theory of animals is beneath you. It's a conception of animals that has caused countless suffering.

  • If you want to live in a glitch. Yes

  • Abc for kid my bacon hair is a streaky wig I am going afk until I got enough robux to really playyyyy

  • well, all of this for a meteor to hit some part of the moon and cover all the surface in dust

  • Damn you just changed how i think (sorry if my english its bad)

  • The life is from ALLAH subhanahuwata'alaa

  • Hey! It's a vacuum that sucks harder than a Dyson! :D

  • My problem with this video idea The Egg, is that if the entity lecturing the viewer is all knowing, all seeing, knows the origins and knows the future, THEN it will know that you exactly what every single thought, action and scenario you will be in and encounter. It will know that you are a complete waste of time because it knows ALL/EVERTHING you do before you do it, so why create you in the first place?. The entity might as well play tic-tac-toe with itself all day because it knows EXACTLY what will happen next.... AND WHAT IS THE FUN OF THAT????? Knowing what the outcome of your actions before you even act upon them. Being all powerful, all Godlike has its drawbacks, nothing will keep you interested.... nothing, (oh i made humans to understand that i exist.... well God, you knew exactly what every single one of our actions would be because you are all knowing of past, present and future action of all things.... THEN WHAT IS THE POINT OF PLAYING TIC TAC TOE with your self all day?????). Example: I meet God, I say i finally go to Nirvana, one with you God, one with the Universe.... God replies I know, I knew all this before i made you, you are just repeating yourself/myself........ (makes no sense. End)

  • *sad UY Scuti noises*

  • It’s so impressive how less corroding surface kurzgesagt creates in such a controversial topic. No one can complain about this video at all because there’s no factor missing and every perspective has been showed. I love how deliberate your videos always are.

  • now we have a vacseene so we will probably win with the covid 19

  • Pesticide resistance?

  • The power of friendship truly is magical.

  • I am confused if phases are good or bad for humans

  • I equate climate change to theism - I know that the average theist is on the right & climate change believers are on the left but I find that these two things are really not that different cause you believe in something that you cannot personally prove exists, there is some circumstantial evidence (the bible or other holy documents for theists - scientists claiming it exists for the climate change believers). But we really can't actually prove anything ourselves. we can't prove god exists or doesn't exist. and likewise we can't prove that our world's climate is changing because of what humans are doing. so in both examples we rely on others to tell us what is happening and we don't question anything or do our own investigating. except for those who do who are called atheist's and climate change deniers.

  • Environmentalists have a big China-shaped blind spot. Hiking the price of gasoline is just pissing into a toxic Asian wind.

  • kurzgesagt ending is my end

  • How do you know you only reached 3% if you haven’t reached the bottom yet

  • For the case someone decide to use it on your city: Lets hope to die immediatly from getting vaporized (I dont believe that this hurts because it´s happens so fast) than dying slowly from radiation poisining (what I heared a very gruesome way to die) or later on cancer.

  • good !!

  • Most often when I watch a Kurzgesagt video I am sitting here thinking "I want to play that game" ^^"
