    Youtube got kind of unreliable to notify people when we upload. So we made a Kurzgesagt Newsletter: http://eepurl.com/cRUQxz – we only send out emails 1-2 a month and it is super easy to cancel.

    A Kurzgesagt video that doesn’t end with a question that keeps me awake for nights in an endless cycle of depression, confusion, and fascination towards the universe? WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT DID YOU DO TO THE REAL KURZGESAGT?!?
