  • "The past is a foreign country and we are only tourists" -- The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows

  • "Toto's remains have been lost."

  • Why last Thursday and not last Monday or Saturday?

  • Ockham's would be a great name for a razor manufacturer

  • We remember the Ancient Greeks via the great philosophers and dramatists like Socrates and Euripides. We will be remembered via Danielle Bregoli, Lil Tay and 'Gucci Gang'....

  • I'd explain to people why i'm so lazy but its too much effort.

  • Now if scientists used more names like "Newton's Flaming Laser Sword", I would do so much better in school

  • You were all amazed by Ockham's razor.........but none of you expected:

  • "History is a lie agreed upon." - Napoleon.

  • Last video i watched: "You live in the past"

  • I often wonder why people suffer with procrastination and maybe it's just the universes own defence mechanism. It's trying it's hardest to stop us from using too much energy so it can survive longer, this could also lend itself to the Hive mind theory.

  • "Chill out dude. You´re destroying the universe"

  • Don't encourage the slackers! :-P

  • Some people think the Bible is real and not a compilation of ancient comic books.

  • So if everyone jumped on a treadmill until they died we could speed up the Death of the universe

  • I watch vsauce to go to sleep. Just thinking hurts my brain so much it just crashes and voila I sleep. Works like a charm.

  • 4:02

  • I'm not lazy. I'm doing my part to save the universe.
