  • Hey VSauce, existential crisis here.

  • "Toto's remains have been lost."

  • Glad to know im not lazy like everyone says i am im just helping out the universe in the future by sitting here everyday

  • 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'....

  • Why last Thursday and not last Monday or Saturday?

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

  • Teacher : Why aren't you participating in class?

  • Newton's Flaming Laser Sword sounds like a legendary weapon

  • Are we vsauce or is michael vsauce? 0001f92f

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

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

  • If you are currently done watching the video think about this. Did you actually watch the video or was the world created a minute ago with you sitting on your couch with the “memory” of watching the video. Now if you’ll excuse me I need to go have a mental breakdown over the fact that there is no evidence of anything ever.

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

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

  • Newton's flaming laser sword sounds like a metal band

  • The past never happened, thus Vsauce never happened... So sad to think.

  • Don't encourage the slackers! :-P
