          Привет группа Kurzgesagt я ьы хотел что бы вы сделали видео о том что будет с людьми если за них всю работу будут делать роботы . То есть представьте себе что люди не работают за них всю абсолютно всю работу выполняют роботы . Чем будет занематься человечество когда у него будет уйма времени ? Спасибо за ранее . Я не русскоязычный. Так что прошу прощения за орфографические и граматические ошибки если они присутствуют .

                        these countries wich have isolation from medical sources is their own government/peoples fault, I have ZERO sympathy for a populus of people who only want to continue to be the victim and never work together to create infrastructure due to corruption.

                                                            To be fair, most of these are only a problem because large parts of humanity lack the intelligence necessary to separate drinking water from sewage. I don't have a goddamn alien bursting through my chest, not because I am rich, but because I eat and shit in different places. When heavy rains flood your hovel with your own waste, it's not an issue of privilege(or lack thereof) but of infrastructure. Even a dog can be trained to crap in a designated box. If africans can't do that, it's their own fucking problem.

I am now in the 8th grade, still the size of a 3rd grader and had tormenting headache and abdominal pain every day. Nevertheless, I have many great friends and am very smart =) (If I misspelled something I am very sorry because I do not speak English and with "grade" I mean the class at school)
