    Bruh, I am supposed to be doing biology and looking at natural selection and speciation, when I decided to watch this. Next thing you know I have learnt all animal classifications along with great examples of natural selection and other facts along the way. I am starting to think this is all much more than a theory

    Just an option, if you don't have anything to do. I recommend watching Rooster Teeth RWBY series. All 7 values. I have two thearies, one with one of the songs, and another about how to defeat the main villain.

    Yay the same old intro! I really missed the intro! Oh yeah, the wheel is back too! I totally forgot that the wheel was even a thing! Oh yeah i'm in Year 6 (6th Grade) and we learned about... ummm... cladistics (Before the Covid - 19)! In the UK we call it "Classification" and I was so confused when he said the word "Cladistics" but then he showed Domain, Kingdom, Phylum ect so I just assumed that he was talking about Classification!

    If the wheel of gaming almost landed on among the sleep, does that mean you did not find anything to do a theory on? Even on the fact that the kid’s parents are divorced, the mother has custody and is all the monster occurences are the mother in the child’s eye? Also the mom is seen by the child as a monster because she is an alcoholic.
