  • Not true 👎

  • the cantonese subtitle is funny:)

  • It should stay illegal. Its a drug. Long term users are worse than heroin addicts. They would sell their mother for more weed . Whats worse , kods can get it and do get it . 15 to 20 years old , smoking weed end up dumb as f. World will end up full of dumb people raising nex generation. Its sad .

  • Dumg

  • this sucked

  • I actually don’t vaccinate my children; I prefer a doctor does it

  • Is no one talking about how their is a power helmet in this snow

  • 4:25 doofenshmirtz evil incorporated

  • This man is the best online teacher

  • This is the set up, just like Lucy holding the ball. The gov promises free money (which isn't free at all), then, when everyone thinks they can skip their education and automated plants will keep making our cell phones, they pull the money away. People are such suckers.

  • 5:19 Me: WOOOOW that is the best name EVER!! (including sarcasm)

  • Good news! I have shared this video with some important people. They seemed exceedingly interested in your ideas. Just curious as to what kind of person thinks it’s a good idea to present virtually genocidal ideas to children? You actually suggested that people in third World countries and should use contraception more often and more effectively, that sounds racist at best, genocidal at worst.What’s next? You’re going to suddenly push abortion in Third World countries? Every black and brown person on this planet should be absolutely outraged and I will make sure they know about this video. Buckle up, buttercup!

  • Holly smokes! This is taking animations to the next level, where can se learn such ability?

  • Count me in! It'll be awesome!

  • *damn.............*

  • eventually people will forget about its existence, so goes with anything made legal.

  • I actually had thoughts where I think that I am the only real person in this world and others are just a conscious of mine. I question those thoughts again after watching this video.

  • Is it weird that this aligns with my religious beliefs

  • This video is full of racist hate against all people in Third World countries. They emphasize the need for greater use of contraceptives in Third World countries. Aren’t Third World countries mostly brown and black? If they’re pushing more contraception in those countries, how long before they start pushing for more or abortions? How long before they start letting the elderly and the sick just die because it’s cheaper?

  • For these who do not give to charity, this joke is on me: A devoted christian want to become a hermit. He goes to a monestray and ask for appliance. However he expresses his concerns to the occupier of the place about the potential of him avoiding the restraints of sin. The holder takes him to a dark room in the basement 3 floors underground and say to the man: "Well, you see this hole in wall? Everytime you want to sin, stuck your privet part in that hole and your desire will be fulfilled by one of our members... Except on Wednesday..." "Why is that?" The man replied... "Well" says the occupier, "Since most of of us dare to sin, on Wednesday you are the one who have to be screwed on the other side of the hole" Fucking give to charity!!! I do not want to do nothing but working from 9 to 5 on my next life everyday, being a selfish ignorant fastfood eater, wasting my life on nothing but cheap stuff like cigarretes and alcohol at the stripper bar!!! And yes. I am waiting for a respond telling me I do not know what I am missing but I do know! I had it enough by living like a selfish ignorant for 20 years on my current incarnation before I started giving and sharing and I do not want to suffer like that ever again!!!

  • hiii

  • Parents, is this garbage being taught in your schools? Do you know for sure if it is or not? Have you watched it? It’s horrifying worth their formatting as acceptable under the guise of harmless cartoons. Parents, This is not the only garbage they are teaching our children.

  • makarov wants to know your location V:

  • i would live to 46

  • i can't drink milk, is too bitter for me, and because humans don't need it, all the milk necessary we take as babies

  • In 40 years from now earth is going to be a peaceful place.

  • According to my Analysis, the best way to build the Dyson Sphere, we need to have materials. For Materials we can use the other Planet Resources..!!! This all the Planets have all the materials which we need to build the Dyson Sphere..

  • I like the don’t hug me I’m scared Easter egg with the digital style and stuff

  • the baby part

  • AND he forgot to mention TWO HUGE elephants in the room: it would cost TRILLIONS and it would cost (surely enough) many human lives. They trial and error won't go easy on such conditions. That's why, if it was only for science and knowledge, probes and automatons and robots are best suited for such goals. There is still plenty of technology we would need to reach to have better opportunities and even then, laws of physics still apply (sorry Sci-Fi fans whose main source about science if pure fantasy).

  • I’ve watched Kurzgesagt since 2013 or 2014 and the more I watch them easier it seems that they can manipulate data. Idk because in the past I believed everything they said without having a second thought, and watching this the title of the video was about Nuclear waste and then they start talking about Fossil fuels and how bad they are yet they talked about Wind Turbines for about 30sec or so and not a single negative thing was said? Idk just seems manipulative to me.

    • I meant Nuclear energy not waste*

  • This story is told in the 2nd person. Weird.

  • You are me and I am you

  • yesssssssss everyone should feel rich & be happy w a free roof over their head. unlimited free organic fruits & vegetables!

  • This is my favorite type of animation

  • It’s easier for me to accept my own imminent nonexistence than that of others.


  • I hope that this is reality, it feels safe to live believing this

  • if we put a bunch of TNT in the universe will the universe blow itself to death?

  • A nuclear weapon that of the comet from Soma, would have ever lasting effects on the ecosystem and life as we know it. A shattered, cracked planet surface. Towering smoke stacks reaching high into the atmosphere, fire risen from those cracks and burning everything, creating such smoke stacks. The only habitable location would be our seven seas. Dangers still arise in such places, too. The creatures that lurk the depths, the aftermath of whatever nuclear weapon has on water, and the hazards of water itself. How could humanity as we know it continue to live? As of now, not everyone knows. We might not know at all. But the ban of use of nuclear weapons and manufacturing of them is clear. Cease nuclear weapons. It's too dangerous, and completely immoral.

  • thank you for this video Kurzgesagt!!

  • im surprised no one has made a konosuba reference

  • Me on the Moon: HA- oh a rock, OWIE. Me on Mars: Ooh so pretty... AH MY EYES! Me on Pluto: Wait, The world exploded? oh, cool. Me on Earth: AHHH----------------------------- Me in the middle Of the explosion: *Sound of nothing*

  • Welcome from Germany, where we start burning coal again. We might have a huge art of renewables, but also a huge amount of pollution.

  • So like, those cells also have life?

  • I have to wonder why you are presenting this information to innocent children instead of mature adults. If what you say is true and so good, why isn’t it being presented to America on primetime TV? Why not present it to the government? Why are you focusing on children? Why are you presenting horrifying objectives in a cartoon format? Why are you presenting ideas to children that would give adults nightmares? Why are you focusing on children? Why? Why ? Why the cartoon format? Why are you trying to convince children that depopulation is good? Did you realize that adults would see the nightmare for what it is, so your only chance was to present it to children who wouldn’t really understand because they would be distracted by the cartoon images?

  • The advert I get “seven signs signalling the second coming of Christ”

  • thisa video made me take a completely different rout in my thinking all i heard was "no"

  • What complete nonsense.

  • Im siding with pros, i want to ask lets say if a birth was going wrong and you can only save baby or mother who must be choosed? I would saved mother because some life has priority over other. If we want to colonise other planets we must ignore life forms that are living there already if the original life form dont possessing intelligent. As like bacteria, plants or animals. Therefore people who decide this tech for designer babies must have right of ownership of their child until baby start to have intellegent and enforced by law to protect child and love them. There shouldnt any law to block anybody to use this this tech to create life that have more meaning than others who are come life by randomness.

  • I felt like they could have gone harder on the panpsychism part at 1:50 and talked some more about the "Hard problem of consciousness". Mabye framed the video more like it's a topic we still have not completley understood. Science and philosophy is still far away from figuring this out... Cause it's definetly possible that if we gather enough senses together, that eventually, the mixture ends up feeling like something, but who's to say we couldn't just be walking around like meat machines with biological neural networks making the decisions, without actually having us "experiencing" anything, like we do? Is the mixture of senses really what makes us truly concious?

  • ObamaCare

  • Does anyone remember that huge winter storm in Texas recently? PEOPLE DIED because we depended on “renewable energy“. PEOPLE DIED because Texas depended on solar energy and wind energy to support the electrical grid. Solar energy doesn’t work in the winter. Wind energy doesn’t work at night or when the wind is calm. It was a recipe for disaster and people in Texas died because of it. Green energy is the big lie. The green new deal is the big lie. It takes more fossil fuels and CO2 to produce a single solar powered it off then that panel will ever produce in its usable lifetime. Tens of thousands of acres of trees Have to be cut down to make room for solar panel farms that only last a few years. Wind farms kill more birds than airplanes do every year. Wind farms never produce enough energy to contribute to the electrical grid. Wind farms are always subsidized by the federal government, which means you the taxpayer. So you’re paying to buy electricity that you never get. Do you still think that’s a good deal? Solar only produces electricity while the sun is out, and only for 8 to 10 hours of daylight is usable to produce electricity. And when it’s cloudy, forget it. When you buy your electricity from our utility that uses “Green NRG“, you sign a contract that has fine print that will drain your bank account. When the power goes out, they have the legal right to skyrocket your electrical rates and take the money out of your bank account because that’s the document you signed when electricity was cheap. This is the truth they don’t want you to hear. There’s a lot more, but it only gets worse.

  • Welcome to the dark dystopian future, where you can sometimes see shooting stars being replaced by a flying ragdolls at high altitude and a random imp from your uncle's basement can spell the end of you, your 6G Mega-ram hard-drive brain, and your virtual friends, who "exists".

  • *a gReAt pLaCe fOr oUr nUcLeAr tEsT*

  • This is a good story, it's very calm and relaxing, just enough to make close my eyes and sleep deeply.

  • woww

  • Like the playful captions

  • Where’s the super mutants?

  • Virgin B Cell -produce antibodies -standby mode Chad B Cell -produce antibodies -activate other cells

  • Ngl i thought this was a suicidal message

  • One life one chance have fun and do the best you can ! Life is fragile and fleeting. Live it up
