      the human mind is fallible, keep a journal.

    42. Nirjhar Ghosh

      Time is relative. Who decided that 1 minutes is 60 seconds, and so on. It might be 80 second in another clock. The measurement criteria is our own. Contrary to other forces in universe Time can't be felt. It just passed by but we don't know it. Also, I don't believe that if someone travels to intergalactic space or near blackholes and come back will he be in different age he would have been otherwise. If he is in other age then it clearly violates laws of nature as similar like time travel. If time travel is possible then it might be possible that for someone time is moving slowly and faster for others which again violates laws of nature. Time is the most important and strongest force in universe. Because if you have been able to modify time or move backwards then you can undo, yet it can't be physically felt. Does time means smallest frame of unit of motion passing by. Time does require lots of research as it's necessary.

    43. Kevin Barbour

      Great video dude

    44. Mister Joe

      I have been thinking Vsauce hasn't upload as frequent but now I wonder is it me just getting older.

    45. SamSiePie \

      We missed you, buddy❤

    46. Beverton Rayan

      As I watched this on my iPad , and iPad 4, I realized that I bought this thing in 2013, and it feels like 3 or 4 years ago....

    47. MoonshineTora

      My mother gave birth to me when she was 20 years old. When I turned 20 I realized that I was then half as old as my mother. I then pondered whether or not that means that as we grew older, the time-span between us -in a mathematical sense - becomes smaller and smaller. So if we could life for a very very long time, our age gap would close down to zero years without ever reaching zero. I'm not sure if I was just thinking nonsense or if this actually makes sense, and if there is a term for it. I never gave much attention during math-class.

    48. Kelvinstrumentals Entertainment

      The way he curls his lips at 2:00 really portrays a sense of “buckle up, buster, you’re in for a mindfuck”

    49. Utsav Bajracharya

      So, he took a beard so that he could shave his beard and grow it again?

    50. compton


    51. uwu don't love ya

      Damn bro, you look 30 years younger when you don't have beard

    52. Tiago Bruno Rezende de Castro

    54. Yuri Guedes

      The people of 2000-2100 will remember us the same way we remember 1900-1999

    55. Kelly R

      god i missed having experiencing existential horror to your videos mr michael vsauce

    56. finlay childs

      yo when he said guess how long the video has been goin i said about 2:30 then checked n it was exactly 2:30, mad

    57. Yia Tra

      Does anyone else see that Vsauce seems to speed up the video? For me it's more evident when he reads off from the book at 22:35 and 23:56. Notice the post notes and how they move. Would be cool to get a confirmation on that

    58. PANDA

      Vsauce is better than my teacher at school bruh

    59. CornChew l Mcpe and more!

      you can tell he’s just such a nice guy 2 be around

    72. BovineJonie

      I feel like your head should be bigger with every video.

    73. Divya Vyas

      Now I know why Michael took so long to upload. He was waiting for his beard to come back.

    74. Razerface

      This should be a part of the packaged answer of "meaning of life"

    75. Richard Wang

      Leaving a comment here for my baby to see in the future

    76. Ricardo

      Good thing we didn't got to see a beardless Michael for 30min, that would be unsettling lol

    77. kennblock08

      Who else randomly found the v sauce meme and is now watching him regularly?

    89. ThinkingOften

      Guessed 2:30. I feel latently superpowered.

    90. ThinkingOften

      Started watching a week ago. Continuing from 0:43 at 6:40 am.

    91. Space Shifter123

      This being a long video actually feels longer than i expected... Feels more like an half an hour 11minutes into the video. Really shows how true Michael was talking about

    92. Socks With Sandals

      Deep. Heavy. 🤯

    93. Jeremy van den Berg

      10 years in a room? Easy! Just wait until you ate about 10.956 meals (assuming you'll eat 3 meals a day).

    94. Ju Lien

      I have KGup premium and never watched his series you can watch with it, honestly I just want Michael in front of the cam like this. This is gold. Please keep doing that as well Michael, this is so good. Brings me back to 2011-2012...

    95. Harsh_Here

      The starting of this video took the time to make this

    96. Chonkerton 7417

      You look like Ian from Alvin and the chipmunks

    97. Berényi Sándor

      This is how many times Michael helped us all fall asleep | V

    98. Kozohana

      Forget about the perception of time, one of the most subjective measurements is charisma. Like, I get that Mike here has a billion subs and a trillion views, but all I want is a tl;dr of this vid starring an actor or journalist, preferably not filmed in a tight closeup, like he's trying to invade my private space. Biggest mistake the youtube generation made is encourage intellectuals think they're charismatic as much as make appealing or funny people think they're opinion is somehow important. tl;dr is On the internet everybody forgets that IQ, charisma and sense of humour are not interchangeable

    99. Jack Smith

      Dont Forget 10 Years Ago When Mario Farted!
