0 12. thoruus commented 6 years ago on video Michio Kaku: Why Batteries Are Primitive

#11: totally agree with you about the technology and power waste etc BUT it's called "big think" not "big discuss". So maybe thats's the whole point of that 2 minutes speech? To make kids think about solutions on their own? Just my loose thought.
And to be honest I don't like Professor Kaku tv shows or lectures - way too shallow for me now but if I was ten or eight that'd be just perfect. If someone wants to get more answers or knowledge there's TED for example. Or a science educator :)

There's great speech about marketing, search for "Bill Hicks on marketing." Let me quote: "By the way, if anyone here is in advertising or marketing...kill yourself...you're the ruiner of all things good...you are Satan's spawn, filling the world with bile and garbage...kill yourself."

I've heard that there's no obligatory car insurance policy in Russia, you've to prove in court that it wasn't your fault. And that's why so many camcorders and we've so many "Russia car crash compilations". Don't know if it's true though :)

#12 the problem is, we make them that way: we took what we wanted, we drew borders and gave'em machine guns and landmines. Now they're dying and they don't even know why. Once I had the same opinion as yours - leave them alone to starve, they'll manage or not, not my problem. But one article changed my mind: "Africa: third world isn't black and white" by Ryszard Kapu?ci?ski. I can't find it in english though... :(
