100 thoughts on “Adam Ruins Everything – Everyday Hidden Truths and Misconceptions (Mashup) | truTV”

  1. Uh…. his whole argument is kinda moot if you consider that they could just go to bed earlier and not play video games all night? He thinks the solution is later classes, and not restricting obsessive use of video games?

  2. Wait average U.S high schools starts at 8 wow you guys have it lucky lol, our schools here starts at 7 and ends at 4pm lol

  3. Me: Adam it‘s midnight im not going for a walk
    Adam: DO IT I WASNT JOKING!
    Me: proceeds to sprint out the door

  4. Common misconception: Adam knows anything.

    Hidden Truths: Adam got destroyed on Rogans podcast when he has no script to read off, and someone calls him on his bs.

  5. Me a teen
    Goes to bed at 9 pm
    Wants to wake up at 10 am
    Goes to bed at 1 am
    Wakes up at 7 am
    To me this makes no sense

  6. What about Nurses (Clinical RNs at the bedside)? Is there such thing as too active a job? Is there a type of job thats better for your health? Desk, mild activity job, something like nurses and postal workers who are very active jobs?

  7. In Australia schools generally start between 8:30 and 9:00 and so, although I was still annoyed about having to get up at 7:45–8:00ish, I never felt sleep deprived because of it

  8. We originally started at 8:30am but now this school year we start earlier, I'm going to fail cause I have insomnia😔

  9. My school starts at 8:30 but, the bus runs at 7:00 so I have to get up at 6:30 to get ready. I always arrive early to school though,

  10. School isn’t to educate people, it’s to create a standardized citizenry with a safe degree of knowledge about the power sources under which they will live their lives that will assure compliance to them, while assuring that the citizens will not have the necessary critical thinking skills to figure out that they live in a new form of feudalism and that they will spend their relatively meaningless lives serving lords, princes and kings (albeit by different names).

    In other words you were inculcated in the compulsory education system so that you will be a good worker, and that boss wants you showing up on time for your shift no matter what time it starts so get used to it early (the biology of puberty and circadian rhythms notwithstanding).

  11. On my previous semester, I was given a schedule of a PM class. First period starts at 10:30 AM and ends at 7:30 PM. I never felt tired at school during those times. Now, my classes start at 7:00 AM and ends at 1:30 PM yet I am tired after 1 hour of lecture. Either what Adam says are right … or my subjects have become boring

  12. 8:00 what!!!!! My school starts at 7:20 pluse my school is far from home so I have to be at my bus by 6:45

  13. Just FYI and tangentially, young children cry on planes because they're in pain. The pressure change can induce inner ear/cranial pressure. Not fun! To relieve the pressure caregivers, inducing their swallowing reflex by nursing, drinking, chewing, sucking during elevation transitions can neutralize the pain. 😉 So to others feeling annoyed please please reconsider. Share this tip and give love to those poor kiddos as they're likely in pain. 💓

  14. We need a petition for making school later. I believe the WHOLE family would benefit from later starting times! Many homeschoolers know this and it's one reason we prefer alternative schooling options. It's beyond time we put physical/biological and psychological health first. I would put money on this reducing pathology!

  15. Everything is about the middle way, balance, moderation, transcending polarities. Whether it's about standing and sitting or mantras.

  16. But adam. Its midnight. And my flatmate is asleep. I cant get up. I'll make noise. My friend is a light sleeper. I guess ill just lay down longer.

  17. What about adults? I regularly find my brain wide awake and active, even after work, until almost two in the morning. But even when I make myself go to be earlier, I still have a hard time getting up early in the morning. Bleh.

  18. I prefer birds over cats, they don't have arms, their eyes bulge out their heads sometimes, and you can't always tell what emotion their feeling.

  19. If I sleep at 12:00 and wake up at 8:00am or 10:00am
    Meaning 8 hours or 10 hours of sleep
    Is it still considered quality sleep? Even though I have the needed sleep but I slept at midnight

  20. In Florida the three school types all share buses so have different times. High school starts earliest supposedly so the can work after school. In addition to the tons of homework they get. My daughter never got enough sleep and I always worried.

  21. Sitting too much has practically crippled me, I have constant pain in my hips from so much driving and sitting at a desk. Standing hurts my back. So, I try to walk as much as I can. I’m a property manager so I do get to go out and walk. However, due to climate change, Florida is more hot then it has ever been in my life. So being outside it hot. Now that Adam ruined sunscreen, that a whole new topic lol.

  22. He's doesn't realize it isn't a biological requirement to stay up till 3 in the morning playing fortnite. It isn't the schools faut of the parents can't get their children to go to Bed at a reasonable time. If you need to just take away their phone at night.

  23. Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels…lol, now I know why I'm not skinny. Thought of too many contradictory examples.

  24. "Do it I wasn't joking." Okay Adam, sure, let me just go on a walk in the middle of the night along the highway I live next to! Higher life expectancy here I come! 😂😂

  25. Aldi cashiers have comfy desk chairs here mainly because it's the law here that chairs have to be provided for sitting in work environment.

  26. My mom's ankles swell up pretty badly. She works somewhere where she stands for almost 10 hours.

    When she pushes onto her swollen ankles it leaves dents.

    My mom and me never knew what was wrong.

    Thank god I found this..

    Questions answered..

    This was a great help.
    Thank you!

  27. Wake up and go walking umm i means it about 2AM here and i m not sitting i am lying on bed i dont even remember the last time i was sitting and watching the video

  28. The school timing thing is worse in India. While my school starts at 7:45 and ends at 12:45. The other schools start at 8 am and end at 5 pm.

  29. Y’all seriously standing and sitting and what not but I’m here kneeling. Get in my level before y’all get a heart attack.

  30. 7:30am school start? Why so early? Here in Australia, pretty much all schools start at 9:00am and finish at 3:30pm. I'm glad I grew up here…

  31. 6:54 This is actually published in few sources. I believed it and tried it myself. But in hindsight, the source I read is actually satirical and it claims it's not harmful even if it doesn't work.

  32. Are you guys kidding me? In Indonesia the average public school starts around 6 am – 6:30 am! I want to wake up at 7:30! My school starts at 6! #justiceforindonesianstudents
