Attention-seeking behavior garners attention. Details at eleven.

Personally, I prefer the Primitive Technology guy. The videos are quiet and relaxing. The only concession to the audience is he wears pants.

The one where he smelts iron out of red bacteria he scoops out of a creekbed is probably my favorite.

I remember FPSRussia. He demoed a full-automatic quadcopter before anyone else. For things that go bang, I like Ian McCellan at Forgotten Weapons, esp. the Puckle Gun.



All that needs is the flintlock mechanism replaced by a Tesla coil and it's perfect for my Steampunk Zepplin. (Did you know steam has 60% the lift of helium, twice that of hot air*?)

What is your source for him having licenses? If so, that is another thing he should have mentioned. How difficult would that have been?

Apparently he has injured himself and a friend once each.

Here a high-schooler calls him out for safety: https://www.reddit.com/r/chemistry/c...kb&sh=7f0f64f8

Favorite quotes: "He's a jackass with a voice for broadcasting" and "Nice hair and energy. Chemistry tricks are rather pedestrian. Good marketer too."

“It makes it seem like I am a irresponsible YouTuber who is blowing stuff up,” he said. https://www.sltrib.com/news/2018/01/...d-experiments/

"SOUTH JORDAN — A South Jordan man who told police he blows things up for his YouTube channel has been charged, along with a friend, with igniting an unknown substance that caused a large blast that injured his friend." https://www.ksl.com/?sid=46238745&nid=148

He is blowing up stuff and he injured his friend. If I get a papercut playing sudoku that is one thing, but if I think it is funny to put hand sanitizer on my nephew's forehead and he flushes the alcohol from his eyes by crying, I am being irresponsible--to say the least.

Demoed in CGI/special effects. The concept is valid, but I have yet to see a working demonstration.

I like David's antics.

I want to see something like Colin Furze and Grant Thompson's lovechild with a death wish blowing up stuff in the middle of Detroit and when law enforcement tries to cause them trouble based on blatant violations of law on safety as shown in their videos, they prove everything was CGI and acting.
"You never set your landlord's car on fire?!"
"I don't have a landlord, I have a landlady, and she has never owned a car because she is legally blind."

I am not sure how many viewers they would lose when everyone realized it was fake, but then again, WWF is still around for some reason.

It's the Mandela Effect! Last I heard he was it BIG trouble because it was true.

Next you'll tell me you can't just pull an AA-12 out of a bucket of water and empty it.

Explosives are kind of like tide pods.
Except someone dies or losses limbs.

Not really, if you know what you're doing and do it correctly, commercial and military grade explosives are very safe.

It's the home made **** that's dangerous, generally because the explosive is much more unstable and the method of ignition more crude.

I am sure that if you know what you are doing and handle them properly Tide
pods will give you clean clothes and not extreme intestinal distress

Yeah I always thought that was dumb as **** that they were so anal about it. Short of someone pulling the pin and letting the spoon fly, they're pretty ****ing safe it's not like "oh no I dropped it" (before pulling the pin) is going to result in any damn thing but you looking dumb.

I get it, but at the same time, ****, relax a little if they were that sensitive to impact they wouldn't be used. Sadly they're that wound tight because half or more of the people coming through basic have never even held a firearm before and are increasingly lacking in common sense. Also it's on their head if something happens.

I'm sure what screwed this particular YouTube guy is lack of manufacturing license, even firework manufactures have to have licenses that and if he was setting **** off in city limits. well that was just asking for it. Though I think dry ice "bombs" and such shouldn't be considered any form of ordnance as they're really just noisy and little else.
