    57. Vlad the Impaler

      If gravity could be unified with the other forces then what would that mean for us? As imperfect as our understanding of physics is many technologies and sciences have been developed from what little we know. So if we could enlarge our understanding by unifying gravity what exactly can we develop from that breakthrough? What machine, medicine, or chemistry could be possible if the unified field theory was complete?

    58. YouTube Stop

      And they say war was made by humans Pfft...
