Connor Deschain: I feel like there is a Donald Trump joke that could be made from that peanut thing

Job sih: Clamato is fucking delicios...

Martinus3000: s e x y j o h n o l i v e r

PennArgoat: 1) What you Americans eat is TOO MUCH SWEETNESS. No wonder why you have even more obesity than other countries (where it's already considered an epidemic!).
2) Everybody understands the metric system except you and 2 other countries. It is logical and simple to grasp. Your system is a pile of horse shit.
Have a good day :)

Venture Beyond: I am one of the fatasses that, while watching this, is eating a plate of nuggets with a 44 ounce of root beer. I am not obese, but I am not healthy either. Losing weight though!

Aurora TiatsuwolfHD: 6:14 "half a million dollars a year" nope that's half a hundred thousand dollars a year

Quentin Styger: She does make you look hot.

Lethal Kid: 41,000 dollars = half a million 6:13

Tristan The Man: ITS PAM!

get fucked: He talks about how people know what a teaspoon is while he shows a tablespoon.

Attila Pataki: noone understands the metric system... except the whole world with the exception of 3 countries

30 james: Sugar is bad for you, but how come we don't know that the excess fat mass makes the rat less buoyant, and makes it harder to jump up and see the ledge. You can see the second rat has to work much harder to swim around and its head is much closer to the water. I don't buy it

Kye Farmilow: Tea spoon has always confused me because whenever my science teacher says a tea spoon he gives us all spoons of different sizes and tells us to have it full, that's so inconsistent!

Oli Mercer: Why does myfitnesspal say I can eat 122g of sugar a day then? I'm bulking so require 3740kcals a day. This makes very little sense. If 22 teaspoons of sugar is 88g it makes no sense.

For the record I did two years of nutrition at University, normally have no where near 100g sugar and still have no idea why this has been recommended 😂

Jack den Heijer: 9:12 if you fill a teaspoon with a heap sugar that goes 6 metres up and one where it goes only a centimetre up, they're both still teaspoons.
I've also seen many different sizes of teaspoons. Grams are more accurate and easier for most people to understand… although this is the USA we're talking about here.

julie araiza: there a 4.2 grams of sugar in a teaspoon. Round the 0.e.g. down to end with 4.0 g. but after drinking a coke you end up with extra grams that are unaccounted for. To find out how many teaspoons are in a coke
1 tsp| 20g=4.8 tsp sgr
4.2 g| coke=  1 coke

remembering that if a letter or number is both on the top and bottom of an equation it cancels out.

Lee8639 Leeah: The Louie CK sexy costume is truly terrifying.

LemonadepieX: "They taste like an elephant ejaculated into a packet of Splenda." 😂😂😂😂😂

rutabagasteu: I like circus peanuts. it's candy corn that is beyond gross.
