  7. Lasagna is pretty cool

    The end really touched me for some reason. Beautiful video. (as always)

  8. ChernavskiMZFK

    If this is a simulation it would have been terminated by now.

  9. Kit The Entity

    Honestly dying immediately is the best way to go in this situation. You may play games and think you want to be a rag-tag apocalypse ranger but in reality it would suck, you would be scared, sick, cold, injured, and utterly alone. Join me and just fucking die.

  10. Jude TenElshof

    This guy hurts my brain.

  11. Texano Man

    While dangerous, it's a huge shame that we will never get to see a real dinosaur in person.

  12. Mr. Bellavista

    today: Brexit one day: earthxit

  13. yhwach

    We exist to worship god 🤷‍♂️

  14. Winner 101

    There is a level to which I can not describe the severity of truth this video resonates

  15. Runagate

    I really like colourful feathery dinosaurs. Way cooler.

  16. Dinofrog

    But can you actually not know you don’t know something? Say we found out about something we didn’t know we didn’t know. Didn’t we actually know that we did not know about it? Because we did know that we knew there were things we did not know we did not know about, and those would include everything outside the things we know we know and the things we know we don’t know and since we know about those, the things we don’t know we don’t know would be all other things, including this thing we just found out we didn’t know we didn’t know, and therefore we knew we didn’t know we didn’t know about it. I don’t know.

  21. Aolenus

    I love the fact that scientist know what door they were and to me that’s astonishing

  22. Apple Ken Xyro

    Optimistic Nihilism: If nothing you do in life matters then all that matters in life is what you do.

  23. Anonymous User

    This is one of those things I'll have to rewatch 5 times to understand, isn't it

  24. J Money

    Every one of these videos gives me Hitchhikers Guide flashbacks

  27. Ken Behrendt

    So one of "Barney's" distant relatives could actually have been purple! Lol!

  28. Smol Bean

    "if you go to university you get to push back work life a bit longer" lol not with how insanely high tuition costs are.

  33. Zé Martins

    Somebody needs to make a pokemon type game with dinosaurs using these animations.

  34. 남이강민

    The fresh iraq undeniably dream because season analogically glue forenenst a likeable pepper. level, healthy kendo

  35. Odge Falfox

    This video gives me the same vibes as the video they watch in Jurassic Park at the theater lol

  36. Nirmal Asokan

    Okay so maybe dinosaurs had more soft tissue, but look at a crocodile, it was around during the time of dinosaurs and it doesn't have that much soft tissue on it's skull

  37. Jennifer Zamora

    Anyone else ugly cry while watching this? Cool.

  38. tittysucknut

    Rest in peace all those in 30 kilometers of chernobyl.


    I will destroy the universe

    1. Rabin Gurung


  40. Balint Varsanyi

    Thanos before 2018: write that down, write that down.

  41. Kursgezagt - On a Nutshell

    There is no right or wrong in life, there are only consequences. When humans look for relevance in life, all they will find is paradox. History has been written, there is no turning back for humans.

  42. spook

    All the gear no idea protect innocence

  43. Sophion

    Wow this video is 6 years old, I thought it was just released cause it's still so relevant.

  44. The Gaming Pikachu


  45. Ai

    I'm from Indonesia, I really like motion graphics with the content in it, this is amazing

  46. lambo lover

    don't be sad because it ended be happy that it happened

  47. Justin Jones

    2 Peter 3:10-13 (KJV) But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. Global warming BS propoganda and lies from the pit of hell

  48. HunterCat1

    Did anyone else buy the calendar before they saw the video?

  49. svncactus

    Unfortunately our shitty species is more interested in destroying our only planet and inhabitants in order to feed 1% of the entire human population an insurmountable sum of money, while the rest of humanity, and indeed the world and all of its inhabitants, suffer greatly as a result. Laughabily, a large amount of 99 percenters think that planet killing capitalism is awesome. Despite not getting any of the rewards. Existing only to slave away for billionaires doesn't sound awesome to me.

  50. CatCatKitten

    i love the *Not even remotely to scale*

  51. Why Not

    Sorry, this is just Mainstream Science Bullshit. There's really no evidence that Dinosaurs looked like giant turkeys. Even Evolutionary scientists are coming out of the woodwork and saying that Big Science is really full of it; most of the time

  52. James Evans

    Video: what dinosaurs Actually looked like Me: sees a tyrannosaurus with three fingers!

    1. James Evans

      It’s fine great video 👍

  53. This guy or that guy who knows

    That spiral at the start should be a poster. Amazing work as always!

  54. Stephano Santana

    please put the source of these studies

  55. Rory Turtoro

    Damn they just showed us how to kill the other .01% of germs that the 99.9% hand gels can't

  56. Leica

    This episode actually had me tearing up. The lines about how time doesn’t care for our feelings and then witnessing life as it happens- oh my god my tear ducts. Wonderful video as always

  57. バーンズエリック

    Spot on. A lot of these points also apply to illegal immigration. People with a strong desire for narcotics are going to want them legal or illegal, and people with a strong desire to immigrate are going to want to legally or illegally and with similar levels of knock-on effect crime and corruption.

  58. Rinsed

    no body knows what they look like ffs

  59. SanityAxolotl

    The issue with your theory is that beaks are more clearly shown as beaks, than bones. I am nkt saying your wrong, i am just saying it may not be right.

  60. Matt Curivan

    I love the videos that you make. They are so well done!

  61. Zoomer Legione

    0:38 like ancient hyperborean Korean Finnish hyperwar that explains ancient nuclear weapon lore

  62. Angus Yang

    Don't forget the immense corruption and income disparity that infects most of Africa, which divert investment and aid away from people who need it to offshore banks and luxury yachts.

  63. The real Speedwagon

    There is a book called All Todays that reimagines modern animals like how we thought of dinosaurs. It literally turns hummingbirds into mosquito like parasites and it gives elephants a weird nose. Also cats have a bony shell around their face. I can only imagine how wrong our perception of dinosaurs could be now. At least they aren’t featherless lizards but they could still be entirely different. There’s a hypothesis where there could have been an intelligent civilization as intelligent as the Mayans or Romans and could have disappeared without a trace.

  64. Sono Panino Gagliardo

    Yeah, we're dead.

  65. Maxime Schweitzer

    The only problem is that to do things we like we need money, and to get money you need to waste 8 hours a day, 8-9 months a year, from age 6-18, then waste more hours for 2-10 years to get more money than if you didn't

  66. Matthew Mulford

    Humans need to stop destroying Mother Nature immediately.

  67. HereIsAMac

    i think this video has got the answer to the question of "if you were given the chance to step in a box forever that will give you unending happiness, would you?"

  68. Sultan Muhammad Arsy

    So dinosaur is just a giant chicken?
