    Hey I'm really sorry to be that guy, but there's a horrendous amount of sibilance coming through my speakers. I really want to keep watching but its so distracting that I can't fully focus on your sentences. Try de-essing if you notice this in the future. Please & Thank you.

    I love that wild people still exist in nature, in harmony. I worry for them medically though, that they might be suffering terribly because of malaria or parasites or dental issues or infection that can easily be avoided by technology.

    In what trap have we all landed, no peace anywhere in the world. Cultures being killed, traditions washed away and dialects and mothertounges severed. Culmination of timeless art and way of living over thousands of years being overpowered by their meatl and concrete and guns. Will there ever be peace?
