Hi, I'm Tom Scott. These are some of the things I've made and done. They'll probably come back to haunt me in a few years' time.

    60-something, grew up in TX, watched the original cartoon-like Batman series, learned it as "Batman smells, Robin laid an egg. The Batmobile lost a wheel..." I don't remember the end. Hardly watched The Simpsons (can't stand it).

    Almost a year later at 27,592,700 views it's still exactly correct. This extreme number of views also makes me wonder what the effect on the youtube algorithm changing the title has. Maybe it pushes the video to more people every time something is edited.

    Im probably wrong, but maybe the rule for a social media influencer to disclose ads on yt is for younger audience, I would be inclined to believe "adults" would know what an ad is and that the influencer probably doesn't care about the product or game or whatever. Idk

    The UK restrictions on political advertising only restrain challengers, since officeholders or famous people need only appear at functions looking good, to get tons of free publicity, to boost their personal brand. Politicians know this and use it everywhere.

    Well it's not just a cheap-thougt correlation between people getting dumber (resulting in more astouned or facinated watchers or consumers) thinking the robot stuff must have improved. Also there seems to be way to much stuff in the internet (which often isn't well re-viewed oder "remastered" though). I'd improve a lot of data strings (or what you'd call them) but who would tolerate calming dry logic, simple "dull" truth? Take a look at wikipedia, where 90% of "alternative data" isn't tolerated by faint-coloured thinking dominators. And reporters and journalists are getting mentally aimed on when they post an assumption. Why don't they add some words like "this is beta information, we are only 92 percent sure". Some consuming people would like and enjoy to handicraft. Most men would need to. We get enough ' that stuff. Modern perfection won't properly breathe. But who "sinks down to my level" anyway...

    Good effort guys. These visuals occur in NTSC VHS perhaps however PAL VHS I’m thinking throws in slightly different things. Our machine had a worn pinch roller which gave colourful bars at the top. My Grandad’s aerial had permanent ghosting, and if you weren’t poor living with mono linear audio, the HiFi audio would crackle with the picture snow. Who remembered to adjust their tracking?

    Since lockdown is keeping us down, why not talk about the lockdown, for posterity basicly. I think every 50-100 years there is a major event in the world that will shape the lives of millions, and they usually get documented and talked about later, "in the history books". What I mean maybe the video dont have to be "about lockdown" but more about how humans adapt to changing situations and events. Maybe in another 50-100 years there will be another global event, and we will use skills and practices we learnt during covid lockdown. You know. I think there is a video there, about the generational experience.
