    The m1 abrams is 60 tons but other variants like the m1a1 and m1a2 weighed 63 and 70 tons. The megalodon was 50 tons on average and 60 tons max

    0:34 "Statistically a vending machine is much more life threatening to you than a shark is"
    Um..sure but theres a flaw in this reasoning. You can be within 10 feet by a vending machine and you will avoid injury. You cannot say the same about a shark. But nice try.

    "a vending machine is more threatening to you than a shark is."
    Not convinced, you would have to average the number of death with the number of encounter.

    Basilosaurus, Tylosaurus, Pliosaurus, and Mosasaurus. Megalodon was similar in size to all of these, but they lived at different times.

    Ok you do understand that this is the United States right? This isn’t Europe or Australia. We’re not on the metric scale. When you give people measurements of length in meters 9.9 out of every 10 people have to stop your video and go look up what that length is in the measurements we’ve been taught in this country since kindergarten. Meters tells people practically nothing until they solve it for themselves which they shouldn’t have to do because you are supposed to be the one providing the information in the video. Same story with kilos. Stop talking like this is a different country we don’t use that unit.

    “The great white shark has the strongest bite in the animal kingdom”
    actually no, that's not true. They have more like a bite of a human, thats why when they bite they go left and right and left and right so they can rip you apart, because if not so they wouldn't do shit only with their bite power.
