    The square at 17:15 says its area as 30, shouldn't it be 20 instead, as with a side 5 area is 25 but with -5 added to it, it make sense to be 20 rather than 30, no?

    i know some people dont like where i would go, but from religion's perspective, somehow this can be entangled to the concept of "faith". In religious aspect, sometimes people describe faith as the path that was already decided for them, such as "the A person will drink water 5 minutes after this" and then it must happens. But with this theory, i wanna wander that faith is actually....Parallel-like. It consist as probability and multiple countless options here and there. And we could actually do any of those options. However, those options also made up from probabilities, from the biggest to smallest. However, when "we" decides and actually "do" something, it becomes somehow, "single", just like the "Measurement" in the video. So in the questional conclusion, does actually we, the not-so-smart human, actually controls our "faith"? Probably yes. It also scares me that each seconds passes, the probability of my cells rioting to be a cancer is never zero...

    Now make a part 2 of the video where these infinite guests fight over infinite number of plates & infinite pair of spoons,forks etc Then make a part 3 of Infinite number of chicken legs for the infinite number of plates but then we come to the problem of a chicken having only 2 legs and for chicken legs to be infinite we need to have infinite number of chickens and for that to happen we need to approach the chicken or the egg problem. For these chickens to be inifinite we need to have infinite number of eggs but then to produce infinite number of eggs we need infinite number of chickens to sit on top of these eggs and hatch them. But then again we have the problem of these chickens needing to be infinite. If infinite number of people ate infinite number of chickens then those chickens would slowly end up being finite. Or the chickens need to match the rate of reproducing at which the infinite people were consuing these chickens. So we might need to have infinite number of females + 1 so more eggs right? WRONG. More females means less males to mate with. But-
