      Привет группа Kurzgesagt я ьы хотел что бы вы сделали видео о том что будет с людьми если за них всю работу будут делать роботы . То есть представьте себе что люди не работают за них всю абсолютно всю работу выполняют роботы . Чем будет занематься человечество когда у него будет уйма времени ? Спасибо за ранее . Я не русскоязычный. Так что прошу прощения за орфографические и граматические ошибки если они присутствуют .
