Captain Doomsday: Everyone's just taking that rat experiment as a casual zinger, but isn't that a little UTTERLY TERRIFYING? That was the AVERAGE American diet which retarded an animal so far that a rudimentary issue escalated to life-threatening, meaning that Americans are like that all the goddamned time. Any one of you reading this could be and probably is a substantially retarded iteration of yourself.

PikariocrafTF 2: #showusyourpeanuts anyone?

Polly Maganda: I heard "sugar tits" ūüėÖ

Shannon Bean: Will the team and you please look into a Washington State law that has become an issue? I was informed by a pilice officer that if a guest stays at my house for 3 days or longer, the guest can claim residency. If the guest receives mail at my home, the guest can prove residency. This law is not cool! Why is this a law? What purpose does it serve? Do I need a visiting generic contract for everyone who visits longer than 71 hours? Or possibly, if by chancea, a one-night stand turns into a two night stand, do I need to provide a temporary rental agreement? That just seems wrong on so many levels. I actually had to go to court and get a restraining order just to get this person's personal items removed. He is w nice guy just really really lazy. I know I have not made the best decision in this life, but I think this law is confusing and could serve as of one of your in-depth programs. It is also sadly a bit funny. One must always keep a sense of humor. I truly hope the team will look into this issue. Thank you, Shannon Bean..

Dschimmieh: "obesity is an extremely complex problem"?... not really. millions of people take in a lot more energy than they need or can use, ergo millions of people get fat. And what is the energy-equivalent that is the easiest for the body to metabolize? correct. sugar. And so the link was formed....

Bilbao Stevens: I don't eat too much sugar but now I want candy

Mawgan S.: And lingonberries are cranberries that the Swedish chef found in his sad bachelor fridge.

Magix: He said that $41,000 a year was half a million dollars

Jennifer Stine: Anyone in the sciences knows the metric system in America. I use the metric system for all my personal work. Also when I feel like being an asshole and making others feel stupid I'll ask for things in metric units.

Bode Harris: #SHOWUSYOURPEANUTS

Enrique Godinez: Anti-sugar wackos are wrong.

Janinho897: "A Cranberry tastes like a cherry that hates you." I'm thinking of getting that as a tattoo.
(No, I#m not, but you get my point.)

theguyinthere: sugar cuases cancer

Isaiah Fitts: Someone make a chrome plugin that translates grams of sugar to circus peanuts!

judas brute: if you've not seen it "Hungry For Change" is worth watching

padddymills12345: grams is weight table spoon is volume

Christian: i think john actually missed something the reason why they want it in grams is actually way easier the european market, like germany, already demands them to label the sugar content in grams and btw in germany the calories have to be written on articles and are often in corellation with the percentage of the daily needed amount or even shiw the daily needed amount of the substance e.g. sugar, fat etc.

An Than Van Man Tan: I'd like to point out that the Sexy John Oliver costume is literally just the clothing he wears on a regular basis; do they have a thing for ol' Johnny?

Tim Reid: John Oliver is our Jonathan Swift. Thanks John.

RandomAccessMisery: I happen to enjoy elephant ejaculation, thank you very much.
