For the Mongolian flightless bird issue at are scientists thinking it's related to the magnetic poles shifting (assuming they see the field lines like birds that fly) or climate change related? Don't understand the reason those birds would travel that far.

so... you decide to sue to have "the Laundromat" taken off the network that is able to entice people to watch a horrible movie that is B grade at best... I really see a lot of people watching The Laundromat in the future, especially when I told my dad about it, when I told him the title and that a bunch of lawyers named inside the film are trying to have it taken down, he couldn't get off the phone fast enough to watch it.

Wow ... Go Togo! Seriously, not even joking, nice job And in regards of mediators: Fuck them, fuck them raw until they're dead. This is not against mediation in the middle east but against mediaton in the middle east were either the USA, Russia or China are involved. Those 3 do not have anything to gain but lots to lose if the middle east finally start speaking with each other, especially the US and Russia are just using the middle east for their ongoing proxy wars and ressource exploitation. The only thing american or russian mediators are doing down there is making sure, that the hatred will no die down, what so ever.

When you have 23 BILLION why do you need to dodge taxes? You would need to spend 300 MILLION a year to spend that money in 70 YEARS assuming you don't earn interest. Even at the most conservative interest rates your money will grow faster than you will ever spend it.

Wow... such varied grateful and ungrateful discourse here. I get all the sides but geez louise... Film making is HARD and EXPENSIVE. Give these guys some courtesy for what they got RIGHT and educate without being a dick... ya know, the whole sugar and vinegar mindset... or the message falls on deaf ears as does all nasty criticisms (versus constructive criticism).

25:15 Countries that call it "soccer" include the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Africa, Liberia, Lesotho, Nigeria, Fiji, Ireland, Samoa, and New Guinea. There are also many countries that call it something other than "football" or any other English word, including Italy, Poland, Korea, and China.

32:45 "Imperial power" hohoho before 1713 the Netherlands was powerful but never imperial just global on the coast were they went for trade. It was only possible when Portugal became part of the Spanish empire our enemy because of the war of independence. The Republic became a trading nation after a wealthy group of people invested in getting their own herbs. And only 1 company would get the permit Verenigde Oostindische Compagnie VOC with at the west the WIC West Indische Compagnie were Dutch Guyana (Surinam) was part of. That is why the world knows the area as HOLLAND and the language Dutch Diets. After 1640~1660 many colonies were lost like Brasil and Angola and in 1713 some nations put the knife against their necks. "We talk about you, inside your borders, but you get NOTHING" The force had literally flown away.

I thought for Iceland they would maybe talk about some of the bigger news (at least these were bigger here) like how 2019 winter was so bad it lasted till summer and had massive snowstorm that did massive damage and killed people. Or maybe the massive cancer fuck up or maybe the newer more bigger news at the time of the video, how we had to evacuate a whole town because of a dangerous mudslide. It destroyed many houses few days before christmas. It was horrible. Though I had no idea about that news that did appear and it was interesting.

these huge donations are always an excuse to skim of the top . corruption is what the donations are often about . even in china these take overs are obviusly a power grab ,which destabilises an entire continent . then due to absolute ignorance by most goverments this spurs war in our past . postulating slavery and debt to china . this harmful practice only bolsters china's land grab and rape of the wild . yet not alone in its greed the growing population of people need fed yet who will do this when there is nothing left to eat ? literally ! shark fins filling boats an sharks thrown back into the water . often still alive ! left to die and without fins china buys ports and by making the islands in debt first take over the entire port where they run it without outside or native laws or fishing rules . while it may call this comment hatred racism or hate speech or a nuance . the people are worked into slavery . you missed that in the news . while enormous amounts of people know about it nobody can do anything without starting war with china . as china does not listen . like may other greedy countries before it ruined the planet in our actual historical past . resources are not a bank we can keep borrowing from . this means our children and grandchildren are in debt while we die and pass on in our negative splendour . kind regards . p.s. dont have nightmares . just allow your grandchildren's future those nighmares right ?

Pakistani Basmati rice was sold everywhere with a made in India tag for many years. Believe me, I have seen this in Saudia for example Pakistani companies put made in India tags on Basmati as they think people wouldn want more Indian products because of its population, it is now known to the world and that is why Pakistani production has "doubled" and Indian "production" is now much less.
