  1. Thank you for making this video! I love that it shares cool facts about the ocean in a not-horrifying way and tells people that we need to save it! 😀

  2. My brother is a giant overweight deep sea squid… so glad to see a nicely done video documentary about it.

  3. One thing I learned from this is that Kleiber's Law was definitely saying that if you're fat your metabolism is becoming slower making you fatter. Bergmann on the other hand made me realize that turning the AC 24/7 makes people fatter.

  4. Ihr stellt euch auf die Seite von radikalen Ideologen. Das geht selten gut. Kurzfristig ist es keine schlechte Idee, langfristig riskiert ihr einen Boykott, aber nicht eine Boykott der Konservativen. Ich nehme an ihr kennt eure Demografie gut genug und ihr habt entweder nur wenige konservative Kunden oder ihr setzt darauf, dass sie die Werbung nicht sehen werden. Euch werden die Leute boykottieren, die diesen Werbespot jetzt so lieben. Ideologien fallen und wenn die indoktrinierten aufwachen habt ihr ein Problem.
