  • I must say that kurzgesagt makes some beautiful videos, and they're videos never seem as there made by normal everyday artists but professionals, also they make so good videos that some schools all over the world started using them in classes, for example, my biology teacher used the "immune system" videos to teach us about the immune system! and kurzgesagt if your reading this thank you for your top quality videos and for informing us about the world in a fun fact-based way
