  • HouseOfPain Ministers Danny DieHard

    So why did u name the video ,bring the sun the earth. U explaining bringing samples of the sun , and how do you know exactly how hot the core of the sun is ???? You see thats a better question.

  • HouseOfPain Ministers Danny DieHard

    Who picks your questions? A moron? What do they think is happen if you bring the sun to earth. 🤔 will it get colder? 🤜 no moron , evrything will burn and the sun will eat the planet . Pretty much in those lines . Now a better question. Is how do we get the cure for cancer from big pharm? Or what is our true origin? See those are good question, cause the one you made this video for , i know at least 60 %of the population are just dumb as tocks but surely i think evrybody has the idea that bringing that big ball of fire close to our planet is not a good idea , wouldnt u agree?

    The remark on fixing climate change by changing the climate even more severely than in reality would be a good thing is perhaps the stupidest thing that my ears on my head have ever heard. Rethink your goal; make the climate good for all life and inhabitants or attempt to reverse man made change. This was probably a joke but if not then here this is.
