  • Life

  • you were born a winner, YOU WHERE THE FASTEST SPERM, OUT OF BILLIONS

  • I was just thinking, “ Man, why am I sad. Look at the chances of me being born! I should be happy! Wait a minute, look at the odds, but look what I’m doing. Nothing.”

  • Hmm it seems like the Astro spiritual looks for a way to obtain to continue the addiction of the feelings of temporary life and experience different life until New host is available?

  • Well at least I did something right

  • So basically 1in a 10000000000000000000?

  • The title is terrible. 'What are the Odds That You Exist?, well obviously 100% as I demonstrably do exist. I think you should have written 'What WERE the Odds that I would exist?'

  • But why me tho.

  • Having a birth defect is even more rare. I HAVE ONE! I feel better about my Microtia now!

  • I was the fastest 😎

  • ;-; gross....

  • I feel special

  • This makes me want to cry like if you agree😥😥😩😭😭😵

  • And yet every Christian thinks it's likely they just happened to be born into the "right" religion

  • Bananas.

  • You have a 0.001% chance of living..! Feel rare yet :D

  • The odds that I exist are very high because im watching this video right now Unless I'm *dead*

  • 1:19 Yes and yes 😅😂

  • I am rare

  • 0:56 the dad's talking about a dalek ( Does Life Noggin watch Doctor who? If he does the I promise I will subscribe)

  • This is deep...

  • Your wrong its 7.5billion people

  • For you to be born, the exact sperm had to fertilise the exact egg. Considering a sperm has a lifespan of 5 days, that gives a 5 day window in your parents life to conceive you. But the chances that this exact sperm would reach the egg is unfathomably small. Not to be overly crude, if your father had ejaculated even a few seconds later, a different sperm might have reached the egg. Essentially, your parents had to have sex at that one precise moment. Even the slightest most trivial change in their life history could have stopped you being born. For you to be born, every single detail of your parents life history would have to be exactly what it was. Then consider that applies to your grand parents, great grand parents and so on. Not just them, but all the people they interacted with in life. Then think back through all the stages of evolution that gave rise to humans. Also, the stars that had to explode their elements into space in order for a planet like Earth to form. The tiniest change in any event in the history of the universe would have incalculable repercussions that would echo down through time, altering history in unimaginable ways. Basically, the entire history of the universe has to have been exactly what it was in order for you to be born. If you ever feel suicidal, just think about that. You are indescribably lucky to even be here.

  • Aw yea I'm awesome

  • What would happen we didn't have space

  • wow I'm lucky

  • So I am super YAY XD

  • I'm grateful to have life

  • Suicide rate drops to 0%

  • I'm Grateful For Having The Ability To Be Grateful.

  • Against the odds, no odds figures were given in the video.

  • so then how rare are twins

  • My life

  • I'm greatful for blocko!! XD for telling us things

  • Damn you roasting me

  • I had a near 0 chance of existing but somehow I came to be! That is fucked up! I feel like I won a punishment instead of a reward. The world is a nasty place.

  • I am grateful for the doctors saving my life when I was born i had a brain tumour that was causing tons of stuff that I can’t get into they removed tons of it some still in my brain since it’s too risky to remove it but without the doctors I wouldn’t be alive right now :)

  • *_I DON'T UNDERSTAND_*

  • Whenever you feel like a loser just remember: You won the race.

  • I’m grateful for US-tv

  • Im grateful for being one of the only people who answered.

  • *travels to the past and sneezes on my great great grandma, nolonger exists, paradox in progress*

  • I plugged in my charger at the end and it said "forget, to keep on thinkin'"

  • He is saying there’s only two genders?

  • Oh, so _that's_ why people hate abortions...

  • So Your Saying I'm rare, but there's like over 70,000 People on earth ( if there's more ) That is...Meh

  • My thoughts on the toilet yet to be solved:even if u weren't alive would u be a different person did I think if that before was I here before and didn't know it did I die and forgot is heaven real what's death like can people live for 300 years will humanity be dogs and cats in the future what if I died right now? *don't ask*

  • Gdosbsggx cool

  • All my sisters have different a dad... Mine died from a brain tumor...

  • and that's just the chances of you being born. think about the town and state you were born in, how you were raised, and where you are right this second. I bet the chances of you ending up how people recognize you, both looks and personality, are also pretty slim

  • I feel special

  • Makes me think why I sometimes don't like my life.

  • This is kinda dirty my virginity

  • OoO

  • I was conceived on Valentine's day....

  • I do not need to know how babies are made!

  • *suicide rate drops to 0%*

  • Well, guys congrats for being the first sperm!

  • Life start in sperm

  • I’m mind blown

  • 0:10 that herts my head

  • Bullets

  • Idiotic video and this is why. It starts out saying “the probability of your mom meeting your dad is blah blah blah”. Ok!! You would literally be able to say this same exact same with every single scenario!! Say your mom met someone else and had different offspring.... and you didn’t exist. Guess what?!?!? This same stupid video would still be saying the same thing and that “different offspring”(not you) would be thinking the same thing “whoa this are some crazy statistics”. It’s really not as crazy as the video makes it sound. Here’s an example. I get a 5 gallon bucket of BB’s that are all copper.. I reach down into the bucket, swirl my hand around and I randomly pull one out... one could stupidly say “whoa what were the odds you’d pull out THAT exact BB??” When in reality, there was no prediction assigned to it. What would ACTUALLY be impressive is if there was ONE silver BB in that whole bucket somewhere and I reached in, swirled my hand around and pulled out a BB and it happened to be that one silver one.. you see, there was a “prediction” assigned to it and it actually came true. THAT is when it becomes impressive and amazing. This video is doing nothing more than trying to make something that’s not that impressive to “sound” like it’s impressive and amazing but they aren’t thinking correctly. If this comment doesn’t make sense to you then yer not on my level of thinking. If it does, congratulations, you know how I use critical thinking and think outside the box

  • I can draw

  • All of this incredibly low chances are still happening for me to suffer. Ok I get that...

  • I have a story. The story of me being conceived. There was a condom on the spot not to be mentioned and it slipped off

  • I’m adopted
