No seeing our country here is kinda sad. I know this video is now 5 months old and Sam did do a disclaimer about it, but considering 2020 may have been the year that our country gain the most international visibility, it is sad. I just hope Taiwan to be seen, and it is so hard.

Wow, You really must do this each year! We try to keep up with news but our local and National news is so saturated with domestic issues that we seldom have the chance to get these fascinating news items from around the world. Bravo!

50. Venezuela is probably requesting it due to the fact birth rates are falling and it leads to a aging population with no new people to generate wealth unless through migration. He's not protecting the people no because in reality he probably cannot afford to but he can give opportunities to the next generation (long term plans) to avoid this in the future

Methamphetamines are not an opioid, opioids are of the poppy origin and methamphetamines come from amphetamine variety which is a stimulant and does not come from a plant. There is the khat plant from the lands of the Horn of Africa in Ethiopia and surrounding lands that is a stimulant like amphetamines I don't know but I don't believe it to be in the classification as amphetamine. It's more of a cocaine and coca plant based stimulant. Amphetamines especially methamphetamines which is simply illegally produced amphetamines really are Reliant almost entirely on humans making it to where is you can drink poppy leaf tea and it's technically still an opioid but still a far cry from the potency of something like heroin or methadone.
Kalijah Eyolya-Ralph
Yes amphetamines are a psychostimulant or just a stimulant essentially to wear as opioids are classified as depressants. Bully I went blabbing a lot just to pretty much say that and methamphetamines were not opioids I apologize, awesome video by the way! :-)

It seems like you got the wrong flag for Myanmar. The one used at 14:33 was switched out for another in 2010. Other than that (and any other small misses that others may have pointed out), I'm astounded by the scope of this video. We don't deserve such great quality, but thanks for making it anyways!

I know I'm 2 months late, but I just want to say, as a Filipino, the part with the Philippines regarding ABS-CBN was surprising to me since it's very different to the news regarding the issue that we've been getting (from ABS-CBN news themselves). The news we've been getting has been related to how the company of ABS-CBN has been going against their contract, and from the news they've been painting it as the law unfairly bullying them because they don't like news and trying to incite their viewers to fight on their behalf. Nowhere did they mention anything about them not having money.

Gee it seems like not only was the world economy scuttled by that unmentioned health scam, but communication and education were shut down as well. Somebody's getting ready to seize global control. But we'd better not mention that either. It won't be news until after it happens. And when it does , there will be a wendover video praising it.

Sorry if I misunderstood something, but on 2.03 minute he says that China was the second country who plant its flag on the moon. In fact it was USSR with its Luna Program. Believe or not, just read the trivial Wikipedia article en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moon_landing
