Luis Cortez : I'm convinced that Michael will somehow be responsible for the world ending up like Black Mirror

IT MATTERS : 25:12 yeah that's what I would do

Jordan Dino : It was just a prank bro

Sam : *Ok, gonna buy YouTube Red just for this series*

Lord Durza : Penetrate ME deeper Michael

Ana Jurado : The only reason why I want youtube red now

Zach Townsend : I would love to continue this series, but it would be the only reason for getting Youtube Red and I don't want to contribute to something I strongly oppose. Give me a way to support Vsauce for the episodes instead of all the other horrible Youtube Red shows and I'll gladly do it.

U Wot M8 : I'd not switch the tracks because I don't want to get sued by the dead guy's family. Hopefully they have good worker's compensation.

Duane Welch : This... This is one of your best shows. Keep being amazing!!!

VC Guerrilla : I would switch the tracks right and when the train just comes above the switched moving part of the track, I'll just switch it back to left. This would derail the train, and as it's a cargo train with much slow speed, non of the people there on the track or on the train would die or risk dieing.

Silly Gily : I once shot a guy on fortnite at close range with a pump action shotgun and it only did 7 damage. Can you explain that vsause

Sab Corbeil : Why we gotta pay to have our minds blown now?

Rudolf hitler : Goddammit this was hard to watch.

WiP FPV : *about to witness someones death* "HEY Vsuace, Micheal here!"

Tazreen Tasnim : Mindfield is back! I've been waiting for this since last year!

EagleHD : Pretty sure the reason I love this show, is because I believe its very similar to ”Mythbusters”.

Rick Morty : You better be getting paid way more than everybody else on Youtube Red, because you're the only one propping it up.

Sam : *"The trains probably had sensors"* Yes, its called the eyes of the conductor

Interminables PuntosSuspensivos : I hate that everyone just assumes that the right answer is pulling the lever so that the train only kills 1 person but honestly I think the 5 people being in that rail have their destiny already written. If in both scenarios people will die no matter what you do, I think the best answer is to just let things happen normally and don't interfere. So to me, the five people should die in that situation, sadly.

Willy Z : Great video Michael, as always!!

Zoronii : So is this show basically morally questionable psychology but without the constraints of an ethics board? Because I kinda love and hate that concept at the same time.

helifalic : Corey is brave, man. I was expecting no-one to take responsibility but he was rational as heck and followed through.

Mail Backwards : "YouTube Red shows will not interfere with creators' regularly uploaded content." See you in 4 months or so...

Eugene Sagan : Is it a teleological normative dilemma or is utilitarianism the best ethic?¿

WHY SO SERIOUS : Damn give Cory a fucking medal

Rahul Garg : This video was kind of a proof that humanity exists?

Dillon Qaphsiel : Love this but don't want to support YouTube

Niston Cloud : Doesn't the preselection of test subjects sort of skew the results?

DarkAngleXD : This might be staged cause at 27:23 the switch was already at track 2 but then at 27:29 the switch is back to track 1 :/ .. It's very disappointing.

Александр ForestLamp : Great job !

Tractor Wrangler : Being a very brutaly logical person I see the error in this test. No one was actually wrong however one person I see as more correct then the rest. The first white male made the most logical choice. 5 workers familiar with their enviroment 10 sets of eyes and 10 sets of ears. All 5 have the ability to feel the vibrations of the train approaching and their experience will make at least 1 of them look back. He was correct. Additionally what no one seamed to think about was that the switch itself probably makes noise. The act of cycling the track switch might have gotten them to look back. Taking no action in that case was the most logical avenue. Switching the track over and over again would have gotten a railroad workers attention in my opinion because that would have been obviously an out of the ordnary occourance.

quattro espada : Lmao Elsa: im scared just by doing this Michael: well just u wait.. Fukin savage

Dreadnaught2517 : Man if all the shows on Red are this good, I would definitely subscribe.

Simon Peters : I think in real life, God would just make the train stop, because God loves all people, except immigrants.

OTGIA : Radiolab Podcast!!

TheTayz : The 5 peoples' deaths would be fate as it were, but the death of one would be directly by your hand. I wonder if letting things run their course is perhaps more ethical than taking it upon yourself to be an arbiter of death. Not because you froze, but because you considered yourself no one worthy to decide the value of strangers' lives.

Boo The kid : Best prank video

Tandrevskiv : We neva freeze brudda

Skywardocarina1 : The trolly problem is really easy for me. do nothing because if you switch the track you are responsible for killing a person whereas if you do nothing you are not responsible for those five people.

Ricardo Gobin : We are the only species that can study and make detailed decisions. Surely this means something. Did we really just evolve from nothing? If a house needs a designer and builder to be built, how much more necessary is a designer and builder needed to create a human body which is far more complex. A cell has the ability to reproduce itself. A brick does not.

Usman Ajaz : I just falled in love with d girl At 08:00

TheUKNutter : This honestly showcases who are the real nice people and who are actual dicks. 1/3 of us are good samaritans. I do *not like those odds.*

Nick Watson : What would you do? Vsauce style

anthonydominguz : 3:13 that’s the metro gold line, I take it to my college campus in Pasadena and work every day. It looks like it’s leaving the iredale station, pretty cool to see his train lol.

Gunnplay : Soon as I see the train, I open the door. I see the lady and say, "Where did the guy go?" As soon as she starts stuttering, I instantly blurt out, "These guys are about to get hit by a train, where are the tracks from here?". If she takes longer than one second, I start running around the area and realize nothing is happening. Experiment over.

Amine Hachani : what if you heard thet one of the five lives you saved was responsible of killing 20 people after the accident. Wouldn't that make you responsible too? wouldn't somebody who thought of that be frozen? or act regardless? another delimma I guess...

Jorlando : 4:38 WE NEVA FREEEEEEze

Coco Yepyep : am surprised non of them said Fuck

Aaron Rappleyea : HOLY CRAP that was lit and intense.

Lure : doesn't quantum physics suggest the subjects "know" this is a simulation?
