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.

    I'm watching this right after finding out that Warner Bros copyrighted MeatCanyon's Wabbit Season. Btw, it's now officially canon that Bugs Bunny is a rapist

    they can, but they have too much real life to have spare time learning them

    The worst part is that the massive government spending hurt the economy rather than helped but at least in this case the resulting infrastructure is worth the cost.

    God being "tu" actually carries into English. You know how in the Our Father we refer to god with "thou"? Well, "thou" isn't just the old-timey "you"-- it was the _informal_ you in previous versions of English, cognate to "tu". It disappeared (from most dialects) when the posh started addressing everyone formally, and everyone else copied them; but it stayed in prayers.

    Holy quality, thank you for your continuous work

    It's a good thing that, insofar as we understand neuroscience, trivial editing of memories, personality traits etc. is likely impossible. The brain doesn't really have neat data storage; rather the brain shapes itself in response to various stimuli. And anyways "copyrighted works in memory" aren't in a stable, concrete form. Though, in all honesty, I don't doubt that unscrupulous copyright holders would *attempt* to charge us for remembering certain works; if they could.

    I found the Odd Mac loading wheel O in AsbestOs odd. I see it as the town trying to compromise or some with terms with their history. I honestly don't think it is a good look, yes they did't know about the bad they were doing at the time but it does not change how it has effected people today. Changing the name would be great healing for the town after all the damage that was done, you can be proud of the hard work of your ancestors but also not be proud of the circumstances.

    Here in Peru Coca Cola sell bottled water ("San Luis" brand) but it's just treated water. Nevertheless, it's always the most expensive option, even among genuine mineral water bottled in the Andes (e.g. "San Mateo" brand, which is owned by Backus). Backus isn't perfect - they essentially have a monopoly on beer here - but its products do tend to be fairly priced. Every brand Coca Cola comes up with or buys just goes straight to the 'lowest possible production cost & highest possible retail cost' model, leading to dodgy products that are expensive, an image that hurts them in the long run.

    As an IT professional, I have to point out, that unless you are using NTP, your time is inaccurate, no matter where you are. And even then. Only atoms tell good time.

  41. Snow Man

    What about musicians who have been getting their music copyright-claimed even though they composed and performed the pieces themselves? I'd say as long as that is allowed/happening, the copyright system on youtube is indeed broken, Tom

    True Story: I took mushrooms, and went from 10 years of struggling with german (deutsch) to dreaming about it and thinking in it, like as if it was my mother tongue. I'm now fully fluent after a decade of fruitless struggling.

    Reminds me of something they did in the GDR. Some regular citizens would volunteer to investigate suspicious people by becoming their friends and getting to know them, and they would report to the government.

    So the rods from god were proposed to be made of tungsten because it's super dense. And it wouldn't be as simple as just dropping it because it's circling the Earth at orbital velocity. You have to slow it down substantially for it to fall back to the ground. That's a lot of deltaV (aka propellant) because it's really massive.

    1. Sim Jans

      Also the Rods from God don't technically classify as a weapon of mass destruction, therefore technically not banned by the outer space treaty. However, it goes against the general spirit of the treaty.

    Id like to make the argument that this is in fact, a normal video

    1:42 "They'd drop in a product placement or two" "Your After account will never send promoted or paid-for messages" So, which one is it?

    Idea: At the device's setup, give users the immediate choice between a locked down app-by-app system, or a more "advanced" shared-file system. Pair this with increased technological education (safe habits, teaching people what not to do, etc.), and a balance between security for most and features for those that need them could be struck. When the most common exploits today rely on the lack of a user's knowledge, increasing their knowledge is one of the most effective things you could do.

    Wtf I couldn’t watch this without sitting next to my open window

    If you think that underground trash fire is impressive then you'll really be impressed with the coal mine fire that has been burning since 1962 here in Pennsylvania in the town of Centralia. to this day it still burns and there's no way to extinguish it.

    Many similar places I went to at the Grand Canyon here in AZ with my kids. I let them lay down and look over the edge, walking down trails into the canyon only 4 to 6 feet wide with sheer drops of hundreds of feet at places. Looking back, it terrifies me to think about them being there but at the time it was indeed very much "living". I was also proud of how casual but careful they were.

  80. imark7777777

    So only 10 more years to go in 2020.........

  81. Fancypants McVomitshirt

    I think 50 years is a bit harsh. Some artists are only "discovered" long after they publish. I think 70 is fair, from the date of publication or creation. Extending copyright long after the artists death is stupid though.

    Update from 2020: youtube is showing signs of slowly dying off of bad decisions even with an improvement to the algorithm. Perhaps in the future we're going to get google isn't even a thing anymore, although SEsels isn't google, but just a very tiny part of it

    Every word in your monologue has been used, one time or another, as lyrics in a song. How would you feel if you got a copyright strike and your account deleted with years of work gone because of this? Well, the same is going on with false claims. I have to tune out as this is an advertisement.

  96. Sloth7 Sloth8

    Why and how would it be like this in the future

  97. zachos 2000

    "there is an enormous distance between what the law says and what the world is doing", this is a seriously good quote, might be completely obvious to some but it's so very true, definitely one of my top 10 or top 15 favorite quotes I think... Hmm actually are quotes also copyrighted?? Can I quote people freely?

  98. bill19282

    i think it should be upon death instead of 50 years !!
