It is a dome made out of concrete. They call it "the concrete dome." Let's move on.

(That was paraphrasing Brian Regan's science experiment he liked to call "Cup of dirt")

I was not sure what else there was to say, so I told Google "King of Random concrete dome."

It suggested these three videos, which I updated:



I do not want to disrespect the dead or be insensitive to anyone who has "feelings," it just seemed like an odd suggestion, especially when I was querying regarding the concrete dome, and the most popular discussion was how he passed away.

During the second "The Tick" series, where Patrick Warburton was the titular hero, he met his hero, a Superman-type named "The Immortal," who died doing what he loved.

The Tick read The Immortal's autobiography and said "I don't get it, I read the entire book, and he never mentions being dead!"

Don't ask me why that show got canceled!

I could not find any additional information about the concrete dome. If you search YouTube for "King of random concrete dome" you get some videos where they use the dome, but they never talk about it.

Going to YouTube I saw this clip show in his memory:

I acknowledge it's a sad story. Shoulda stuck to selling their bathwater, like Bel Delphine.

The dome was the only part that grabbed my attention. I was wondering if it was a Monolithic dome. I took 'King of random concrete dome' to DDG Images and the first one was the Kingdome being imploded.

Soph posted a new video Pride and Prejudice, and her whole channel was memory-holed.

Censorship for the sake of protecting people's fragile egos is dumb. If people can't handle certain ideas or language, they aren't forced to watch/listen.

That said, I support the right of owners of some product (Youtube/Google) to set whatever rules they want, or to even break their own rules (right to deny service to anyone, for any reason).

If Soph is so inclined, she can find other outlets for her content, and if people are so inclined, they can find that content. Youtube essentially drives away users when they ban stuff, so it's their loss.

That said, while Soph is entertaining, there's only so much antagonistic delivery that I can find entertaining at a time before craving a longer dialogue that isn't so antagonistic. While political correctness is BS, people shouldn't strive to be antagonistic either; it's the opposite extreme of political correctness (actually just the opposite side of the same antagonistic coin). Being decent is somewhere in the middle, and strives to neither be antagonistic, or be antagonized.

...that said, I do tend towards trolling. It's a bit antagonistic, but my intention is to ignite discussion, not self-loathing.

She's long since mirrored on *****ute. She did get the comments section back before it all went away again. It's reposted already on Youtube.

Trolling works, as Elijah Cummings has found. For a master look for DoctorRandomercam on George Carlin on Men and Women.

This is the first relevant video that I have seen by someone that knew Grant. I thought Cody just rambled. Oh well.

The channel good and basic did one too. Apparently the dad of the guy who runs that channel was a longtime coworker/friend of Grant's.

I have not heard of that channel.

While everyone says that Grant did everything behind the scenes, Cody said in that video that Grant was retired.

Iíd say you dodged that bullet. Return fire isnít recommended at this late date. My ex is on her third. His fourth.

But would you consider an ex as Bambi or nearer Godzilla? So while Bambi is in trouble at 150-yards, youíll need to creep in REAL close for something Jurassic. Like ex-wives. So, donít.

So, this was the $78 Tesla guy? I must have missed that somewhere.

He was also Mormon, but possibly on his way out--there's much speculation over at the Ex-Mormon board.

The $78 Tesla guy is Graham Stephen.

I had not looked into his religious beliefs and practices, I just enjoyed most of his videos.

Ex-Mormon forums sound like lame places to hang out.
