It amazes me that the people who do stupid things of no importance get huge followings on Youtube, and actual educational channels get little to nothing usually.

A couple of my favorites that buck that trend are Cody's Lab, Smarter Every Day, and AvE, though the last curses like a drunken sailor, he knows his stuff when it comes to tools and industrial machines.

I'm amazed by Jörg Sprave.

He went from a slingshot channel with his infectious laugh, to going eyeball-to-eyeball with the beast itself: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=fairtube

They crossed the wrong guy. The same dynamic propelled Carl Benjamin (Sargon of Akkad) into politics.

Meanwhile Bel Delphine is selling her bathwater (in very small jars).

People called "The King of Random" a science channel.

There was at least one collaboration with Cody's Lab.

From what I've seen of KOR, it was less science than it was just blowing stuff up, though the collabs were sometimes better.

But even his collab with Cody's lab I saw was simply blowing up a toilet with sodium.

The opening minute and a half of Just Another Thing In Space That Could Kill Us All | Answers With Joe is an homage to the Hydraulic Press Channel.

Curses because heavy equipment squashed parts of him, sharp things poked him, & sharper things cut him? Yeah, I stay away from that stuff.

He seemed to tone down the explosions once he faced federal charges, but they also started doing dangerous things in the desert and\or in a concrete dome.

I for one appreciate the inventiveness of AvE's fabricobbling fumblemuckery.


Progress is fine, but it's gone on for too long.: One of my vices is vises, Eclipse

Tell me more about the concrete dome?

No he's not an idiot. In fact the guy is brilliant, and I enjoy what he does. It's not the typical stupid Youtube persona, though he does have an occasional very odd humor post. I was simply saying that throughout his videos foul language abounds. If you can get past that, there's a lot to be learned.
