    I’ve struggled with a limp in my left leg all my life, and recently, while attending a new school with very few people I know,, I began to feel like everyone around me was looking at me weird for my leg. Everywhere I went, I’d get strange glares downward and I started to hate everyone; always thinking they were judging me for it. The line “You pay more attention to others, but you understand them less” really hit hard, because I really was beginning to feel quite lonely and sad all the time. But this video has been a great help. I like to think of myself as a pretty introspective person; I usually try and solve my problems on my own but loneliness was something I always struggled with, until this video. It has put a lot of new things into perspective and really is underrated in terms of its importance. The final message of this (way too long) comment is... thank you. It really does help a lot, and I Hope makes a difference in a lot of other people’s lives as well.

    Just wanna say that the largest black holes we know of is call TON 618 from the size of this region and the speed it is orbiting, the law of gravity reveals that the mass of the black hole in TON 618 is 66 billion solar masses. With a mass this high, TON 618 falls into the new classification of ultramassive black holes.

Even thoughts about hurting myself, the boomerang effect. It’s like i feeler that i will discover this video soon in my life as well as one of my most favourite theories about life itself. I wish i had people in my life who could share their thoughts like this one, but i don’t for now unfortunately

    There's a bit of rhetoric near the end of this video. Nuclear weapons have enabled countries to not have extremely large standing armies relative to there respective civilian populace. These devices also make leaders more accountable for their actions, since there very few places they can hide in the event of massive war. This means leaders need to think very carefully about their actions before going to war with another nuclear power for obvious reasons. Also, I can't recall the last time two or more democracies engaged in armed conflict. For the passed hundred years or so war has only happened between democracies and authoritarian/totalitarian states.

    A government big enough to provide you with UBI will be big enough to control your life and remove your basic freedoms. This is somewhat similar to the way your parents had complete authority over you when you were a child. Moreover, if there's ever a UBI, whats to stop the person receiving it from picking up, moving to a country with a lower cost of living and never working or contributing to your nation's economy again? Unless said UBI is going to come bundled with draconian Soviet style restrictions on freedom of movement + hardcore immigration enforcement, I don't see it being workable in practice. Furthermore if the UBI isn't going to replace all other welfare, what's to prevent me from going to a state with more social programs and signing up for them as well. Video doesn't really address the fact that all of this is way too easy to abuse and will require authoritarian levels of state control over people's lives to be workable.
