The other big one is safety. And if an apartment is above the mechanical room or boiler room, expect vibrations and the sound of boilers and pumps going on and off. Also, if you live over a boiler, your apartment is going to be hot—and you might not want to open the window on the first floor (noise again). 5.

  • I see alot of people in the comments of these just blindly accepting what he says as fact, instead of actually thinking about what he says and forming their own philosophies, they just take the small amount that they understand of his, and take it as their own. alan watts is a truly brilliant man, but its ok to not agree with him. in fact thats what he wants, he wants you to form your own ideas by seeing his and thinking about the topic and what he presented. some of his stuff i agree with and some i dont. in particular after watching this video i still want to be immortal, if only because what i want to accomplish in life would take several lifetimes.

  • Ok, while this video is implying a number of good things it is still basically like those people who say “oh, just don’t be depressed and don’t be anxious! Live a little!” The people who don’t have cancer, divorces, deaths in the family, etc. Basically the people who have no idea what they are talking about.

  • These Are half trues the world is getting greener but the most diverse and valuble forest Are disepering. We have to look at the whole picture, nobody can say that we’r not living in a better world, then before. But still we have to demand better because better than before, is just not good enough.

  • Umm…no. While it is nice to think that we can create our own path in life, you’ll always find reasons not to press on such as high unemployment rates, severe downturns in the economy, inability to legally immigrate to another country, recruiters with their heads up their asses and so forth.

  • All this progress is under threat by the moronic far left: BLM, Antifa, Marxists they will drag us all into poverty, and make the poor even worse off. We’ve seen it before.

  • Most humans think our existential threats will come from war or pandemic or climate change. They won’t. They will happen when we turn away from the proven path to prosperity for the rich, the poor and everyone in between. Free thought, free speech and free markets.

  • wow portuguese is my mom tongue, my second languege is english,im learning spanish that is similar as portuguese, and im learning greman too.

  • Phew. More and more Reason by the day. Even Google can’t censor That. Reason, hope, optimism. It’s contagious, masks not needed, new friendships allowed. Red River Rising.

  • Ok but would measuring poverty by living on less than $1.80 per day be a bad metric due to inflation? Sure, you could correct the past to meet the metrics of today’s $1.80, but shouldn’t we reverse that comparison because $1.80 isn’t worth the same as it used to?..

  • Mam really this is a very beneficial vedio. I definitely agree with your opinion. Thanks a lot for making this amazing useful vedio. ��

  • I’m failing school. All of my grades are shit. So that means I won’t be able to go to college. So I won’t get a good job. So I’ll be homeless. So my life will be shit. Why should I live.

  • Life is a beautiful, cute and amazing LIE. Death it’s a dark, horrendous and terrible TRUTH. If the world or it’s ambiance changes, we must go with it, that’s progression.

  • Totaly Bullshit! You said at the biginning “life hase no meaning and i will die at the end anyway”.. so to saying now..ohh i can do something in my life doesnt answer and doest give an advice to..i will die anyway. Why should i do something..why should i improve…why should i do something meaningfull.
    I did all those things.. i saw no reason to doing it again. Couse humans are idiots and i dont wanna last with idiots.
    I reach money..love..and all those other stuff…totaly not worth it to reach it again. Life is nothing else then suffering an totaly meaningles. Sry for my bad gramma.. english.
    You totaly dont answerd to the headline of the clip.
    Nothing what i do will last. Nothing i do will effect my life..and why even do it..i can exist and no one will care about it. Even when i act my ass toghter and do something good for others or for the hole world. The people..the humans dont deserved it! They totaly more stupid then animals.
    The difference betwen animals and humans..animals will never do something whos bad for ther sociaty or they children… humans are ao stupid they dont do it to others..they do it even to herself…so stupid are they.. and of course they do to others stupid and bad things too.. why even border with it…cause it doesnt count.. no one doesnt care..i dont care..it changes nothing..its hoples…humans will destroy hisself and the earth too…ther os no way..we will evolve. I wish it would be a way..you cant change life..the mortality makes it not worth. Life is so fucking short..its not even reasonable to reach something. Totaly stupid. I am thinking now 6 month..to hangmyself. I have so many reasons to do it. The funny thing is..i have not even one reason to not doing it. And i am searching and searching. I said to my self..1 year. If i can find something in that time..i gues i will not.

  • just do something you love. write, read, watch an animated movie. just take it easy. and dont be so worried. its no big deal. everything’s fine. you got this.

  • For years i have suffered on being anxious about my death to the point that i wasn’t able to live properly, i never thought that such a tiny video would make such difference in my life, that would take away that burden that i was carring for such a long time, i’m really grateful for that, i can’t thank you enough!

  • Nuculer is Way to Dangerous, Solar is the way. It’s been estimated that if we took an area the size of Ohio and covered it with Solar Panels it would produce enough energy for the whole United States.!
    I just think we might have a problem talking the Ohioans into it.! ��

  • The most depressing thing I can’t deal with is that I can’t even find a reason to be depressed, which I am right now. What should I do.

  • Hey, don’t you dare to “keep calm and carry on” enough time for that is past and look where it’s getting us. The world is just fucked up in new and exciting ways, we sure are clever viruses. We shat the bed, time to clean it up or lie in it. Color me cynical but I think we’re gonna need some flushable ET wipes.

  • If you want to die, that’s fine. Everyone is going to die eventually. But make sure to die by just holding your breath. If you can kill yourself by holding your breath, that’s fine. If you can’t, that means the life within you doesn’t want to give-up. Fuck your thoughts or wanting to end the life. You need to find out why the fuck life inside you doesn’t want to give up. Look around and see the intelligence around you. Even a small stone. That intelligence is life. Be proud of being a part of that intelligence.

  • The response to the problems of climate change was way too brief and I suspect edited out. It’d be more interesting to hear more about why a global average temperature increase of 1.5 C would not be too big of a problem for future technology to handle from his perspective, especially because it’s frequently cited as being catastrophic from, at least, the acidification of the oceans and the increase in hurricanes, fires and other natural disasters.

  • I can’t be happy because I keep remembering that I’m gonna have to work my whole life until I retire. What am I gonna be doing for fun at 60. My mom might be dead by then and I’d be getting closer to death. I dropped out of high school due to social anxiety and depression. I’m 18 and need to get a ged to become an electrician or go into a police academy. I promised my mom i wouldn’t be a failure so those jobs are some of the options I have. Also the only 2 friends I have don’t ever wanna hang out with me or at least text. Nature is the only thing that makes me happy. I might just save up a lot of money and live the van life


    We need the death penalty in more circumstances, otherwise people do not take murder seriously. If not, every American should have the right to carry conceal. If we are to live like the Wild West, everyone should have the right to defend themselves. Rule of law for everyone or everyone should be allowed to carry!

    Eye for an eye. Guess what? It will solve that problem quickly.

    Biden: poor kids are just as bright as white kids.

    Me: who are the poor kids? Black kids? So you’re calling black kids poor. That’s disrespectful to the black community…………

  • There has been at least 3 ice ages on the earth, Biden would stop our oil drilling and coal mining and we would start buy oil from the mid east again and Chian would have to start burning dirty coal!!!

  • i just feel like there isn’t anything left for me, i just feel numb. i don’t want to do anything, i don’t want to talk to my family, my friends, or anyone. people have tried to reach out to me but i just don’t want to do anymore. i don’t want to have to do this for 60 more years. what’s the point? life is just constant disappointment for me. i don’t want to do this anymore

  • Well have no one and I’m not proud of my life and I see no point in life this is the third video iv watched just trying to find one thing

  • i see right through this man. he is depressed and wants to help people feel better cause he feels bad. He knows what it can be like. I wonder if he believes the things he says will help greatly or ease a great pain slightly. while this didn’t help me, whoever read this, please know that people know what it’s like and they want to help. have a good day everyone, I hope you live and i hope he helped you.

  • i dont like to say that i have depression or anything, im in a tough spot i have been for a few years and i just wanted to find reasons to keep going. the whole video was alright but it didnt move me. didnt shed a tear. but it was still a nice video. i dont know why but at the very end when you said “please dont give up” i couldnt help but start uncontrollably sobbing. i hate my future i hate where im going i hate the person i am i hate affection im jealous of everyone. i tell people and myself im content and that im motivated but i seriously am the complete opposite.

  • False narrative. He says himself that it takes much less time to “burn it all down”. Maybe that’s why most people are more focused on halting the damage and bringing nuance to conversations which are simple partisan fear mongering.

    Social Democracy and personal rights to private ownership are the model. Authoritarian nationalists are the primary problem. Be that in the U.S. or within the C.C.P. or Putin’s cabal.

  • My parents forced me to live like this i tried very hard to get out of this but they won 30 years never experienced anything in life feels like hell.

  • She is not giving like to those comments which are talking about prices….so don’t waste your time here..and practice jam technique daily for atleast 1 hour….it really helped me a lot…though i speak simple English….please give it a try…

  • Actually,I can’t go school just there are online lessons so i think not boring �� but you are right, i am watching a lot of videos and of course i am watching your videos and that’s funny for me.

  • i dont wanna feel the pain in dying but i just wanna just faint one day and never wake up but then i wanna also dont want to die i want to live like i wanna live a happy life, a life i dont have

  • It’s our medical system that is the problem on so many levels. Keeping ppl alive but not really living with medication that hurts them not heals them. How could when it is not God’s medicine. The plants are for the healing of the nation’s. Profit and making money off pro longing life for money is not. We have such a disconnect from our world and what we are ment to be and believe because every institution we wrongly support lies to us when God gave us everything we need to live and truly be happy yet we keep following these powers that be.

  • I have hope in the future, I have dreams I want to achieve. But I’m so tired. I need out now. Not in the future, not when I’m grown I need to leave these people I’m suffocated by. They make my life so bad and that’s while not even knowing I am the very thing they badmouth on a daily basis. I can’t take it anymore they’re killing me, but I’m too much of a coward to end it all. I want to live. Just not right now. Why can’t I skip a few years? I’m sensible, I’m reasonable, I have no lesson to learn I just need out. They have such a bad effect on me if started dragging my few friends down. I’m so trapped I don’t know what to do except go on fucking YouTube and rant in some comment that will fall into oblivion, just like me. Fuck it I would run away if I wasn’t so scared. I hat myself so much sometimes. I have it so much better than other people, but I know that doesn’t mean I can’t be unhappy. I still feel fake though. I asked for a therapist so I can get some time away from them and maybe talk to someone, but they won’t.

  • Great video as always and incredible drawing. His wisdom is so much like that of Buddha, we care more bringing new life yet don’t respect the concept of death nor its meaning. I try to teach my kids these things just like you would pass a torch. The torch is just not life, but the wisdom that you can pass down to make it meaningful.

  • This guy is a genius. But, i personally believe that god is Just an illusion to have an illusion of greater life. Which don’t fit in reality. I think we are our own god. A master of self-sense and understanding. We are the only creatures on earth to closely understand our sense of self and our own consciousness.

  • Thank you for the video. These things take courage to do a video about, like you did. I’ve suffered with major depression and suicidal thoughts for over twenty years. I’m once again in a rut, but I know that getting sunshine, healthy foods, and watching self-deprecating comedy shows (like Absolutely Fabulous) helps a lot. Also, taking B12 vitamins. I think trying to be exceptional is too much, and recently trying to be in a relationship has worn me out. I definitely have attachment/intimacy issues. Just gotta look back at when I was my best and try to figure out what I was and wasn’t doing at that time.

  • That’s why I always wanted to be burnt after I die like Vikings used to do,I can be planted to a tree and help it grow, maybe an apple tree so my kids/ grandkids could eat me and for generations, I would provide oxygen and a vitamins (health) which is all a parent wants for the kids, right?

  • I learn english with videos like yours and movies. And for my type of work I need english every day. And you are correct, pronunciation and fluency is the most difficult thing to learn. I improved a lot but you know, when you really talk with a person the words just vanish hehehhe.

  • It’s awesome to have someone to talk with, however it’s so hard to find this person.

    I’m searching someone to practice for 6 years.

  • I.dont get it, why there re more answers to the positive comment and not to the negatives?! This is their cry for help. Bless u all!

  • i’m 12, and i’m already suicidal. but my parents will get mad at me, or keep questioning why i’m suicidal and i’ll get in trouble for it.

  • Accepting the cycle of life and consciously looking forward to the end as well is the best assurance that in-between birth and death we can create a wonderful life.

  • I’m muslim,so I’m not feeling bad, even if I’m not rich enough because I’m muslim, if muslim obey what islam taught, then will be happy every time,
    Come to islam, islam is salam

  • You know Jesus, you can live forever with Him. You don’t know Jesus you will live forever without Him. Plus, it’s really dark and hot without Him.

  • Ronnie, I consider you are one of the good YouTube teachers around. Also I understand that you are trying to make a living; having said that it wasn’t necessary to put non-native teachers down. I think you have chosen the wrong marketing strategy. I’ve had native English “teachers” who were a complete fiasco. Classes were just an hour or so of them talking about their beach vacation, with no opportunity at all for students to speak, and/or make mistakes. I particularly remember one who even used to laugh at students mistakes. I know very good teachers with a quasi-native English pronunciation, with excellent teaching skills, and a broad knowledge of grammar, methodology, etc. I agree with you in all you said, except in the non-native teacher being an inadequate model for English learners. What I do believe though is that a non-native teacher with poor language skills it is probably not the best option. However, a native one with poor teaching skills, lack of emotional intelligence, etc., would be just as counterproductive as a non-native teacher.

    Many English teachers, especially native ones, love selling the idea of turning learners into native speakers of the language. That is a false notion. The ability of speaking as a native is not the norm or the most important thing. Learners of any language should aim at being accurate, fluent and efficient at communicating the ideas with a correct pronunciation. Very few learners are able to acquire an almost native-like pronunciation in any language. There are certain elements involved: having a bilingual family, living in the country where the language is spoken, skills, motivation, etc.

    I know the English teacher market is a tough one. I’ve been a non-native English teacher myself for more than 15 years. I can assure you one thing: downplaying your non-native colleagues will not get you more students, nor will help your reputation.

  • The biggest problem that someone like me who lives in non English speaker country is I learn English but never practice it like I never practice my speaking ability because no one around me can speak in English

  • Speak fluently with native speakers. Good. But about what? How to clean Englishspeaking toilets? No offence. Fluency looks like some kind of fetish at this time. By the way I like your videos a lot. Have a nice day.

  • I feel like shit, everyone I’ve known has pretended to like and care about me there is no point anymore and I just want to throw back a bottle of pain killers like a box of tic tacs

  • Yeah we know this when Steven Pinker was running around a couple years ago promoting his book.
    None of this is relevant when we are potentially on the verge of destroying ourselves because of yet another ideological infection.
    Libertarians keep ignroing how important religion is.
    “Muh free market” is only one piece of the pie.

  • I dont do most of these and im still miserable. I wish i could share some tips and tricks but I personally don’t know what I’m doing right so yay.

  • Modern science points towards the strong possibility that those philosophers are wrong. Not surprising since they didn’t have the ability to use microphones, run the audio through a computer program and decode their language. Animals can reason just not in the same way that we can and not in a way that’s fairly comparable to humans. It doesn’t make us better than them, an argument could be made that our reason has destroyed the planet while animal reason is more sustainable. The notion of perfectibility is bullshit too. Animals can and do deviate from instincts to adapt. This is just a weird inaccurate religious notion that you have and is not based in scientific reality. Oh and we don’t have as much control as you seem to think as human beings. This wasn’t helpful.

  • This is me and with this who am l trying to impress by setting goals it is just this capitalist society that puts people into debt.

  • I am a schyzophrenic who recently developed depression issues. My Mother died in 2011, my would to be Girl proved to be a jerk, and my poetic career is stagnating. Relating to what you’ve said, Sir, I would be my Mom but I don’t know how will I do that since I am not married. But mama pondered about marriage too. Monks have a better life, three squares and a cot, but they won’t let us in. Will God let them? As for the depression problem I would just be with my Mom God be willing. I only have to stay just a little bit longer. So you recommend reading books? It’s all I done until computers. Computers are animals, books humane? Philosophers?

  • Thinking about meaning, the thing that I thought about was living forever, making my brain and body so they wouldn’t degenerate, I see the light at the end of the tunnel, my problem is, like why am I doing this? I recently stopped playing video games, worked really hard recently, and now I’m like, okay now what, cause I hate everyone, for whatever reason I hate so many people, I feel like if I had one person I could get along with or something, I could feel like living. But everyone seems like a joke to me, or a stereo type. Like everyone’s so typical and I can read them like a book, and everyone’s so average. Like being really smart and everything is kind of a curse cause you get A’s in everything, I’m in college btw, and you get everything done, and you’re good at everything but then at the end of it your like so what. So what if I’m good? People tell you oh you’re pretty good at this and you’re like yeaa, but it’s isn’t that big of a deal to you cause you’re so good at it it’s easy, and for a lot of things that’s what it’s like for me. I pretty much have everything I want, I just hate everybody. I’m in Cali and people are so weird, I go on runs and people don’t even look you in the face anymore and say hello, it’s like you’re weird if you say hello. Honestly rather live in the early 1900s or during early America where people valued hard work and having a reputation, idk what to say, looked this up cause I’m searching for something to keep me going, pray for me if you read this

  • thanks for the great advice! I’ve been trying to find ways to isolate myself but I hadn’t thought about giving up on my goals and future. I’m really trying to get through this life as quickly as possible so I can get to the end, so hopefully using these strategies will help me pass the time.:)

  • Not really useful advise for someone with depression…. If you had a bad day, sure! But if you are depressed, this really won’t cut it unfortunately

  • Ye i have been learning English for last two and half years and still, am not able to speak fluently. Yeah i do speak 50%, but 50% still left and also daily find words.

  • It’s not as bad as the propagandists on one side claim. It is not as good as this propaganda states. It’s comparatively easy to raise the quality of life for the very poor. But a lot harder to deal with problems that arise from things getting worse in previously well off places. Is liberty growing in America? Are we able to reject bad ideas? Are we able to meaningfully motivate the worst off 5 percent in America? We have a huge number of PhD’s compared to the past, yet we can’t manage to get news articles that aren’t propaganda for science issues. We don’t seem to be making progress in getting better political structures. Cars and computers are cheap we are making great strides in making them cheaper and better. But in America we can’t make progress in making basic health care cheaper and better. Same with housing.

  • You know, I’d honestly like you guys to go more indepth, 5 minutes for a subject of “Guys, the world really is better than ever before” is honestly so small, all things considered that it should be more like 30 minutes, going indepth, also where are your citations?

    Honestly kind of a half-assed job if you asked me, the editing is good, just not substantial enough to really justify sharing, let alone to sub, i follow those who do a necessarily good job on subject, if i follow for the subjects they cover
