  • im grateful when they add n/y count, so know if slow at task 5/20, instead of just hung at 20%

  • cant wait for the sequal 3018 we sent galactic bread to the edge of the galaxy

  • "27,728,356 views" and counting. i future dudes hiiii.

  • Æ

  • e here from jobos channel

  • Ey Tom. Just a little heads up. Its still exactly right at 27.738.400 views

  • Damn him saying the hurling finals when there Gaelic football and it’s the all Ireland hurling finals

  • These Can Plants Kill?

  • March 2021 Update: It’s still spot on

  • A carryover from baseball left handers can be referred to as southpaws.

  • Spot on still.

  • 11 years ago... Somerfield... And the size of those quality street tins!!!

  • WTF YT!

  • Just enjoying the fact that nobody will ever read or like my comment so I can type literally whatever I would like to.

  • 3:32 All four columns look like they're the exact same colour to me.

  • the ad right before this video had a grue background

  • You didn't go fast enough!!!! Over 100mph is good and it actually sounds in tune

  • One of the perks of being a HRdownr: tax-deductable vacations :)

  • It bugs me a little that you don't explain the other uses of VPN (especially business cases and also private cases). If you want to connect two sites of your business so they share one network, a VPN might be a solution. Also if you want to make stuff available for yourself or friends on the internet, giving them VPN access to your network is one of the safest ways to do this. For example I have set up VPN for my parents so they can access my NAS and store family pictures / documents and stuff there.

  • Oh the timeless Tom..

  • It is actually perfect.

  • Oh my god as i saw the question I said Harold and it was second place. Tom Scott martian telepathist confirmed??

  • Kirby's Dream


  • Nice video

  • tictacs are like 100% sugar but because a serving is just 1 tictac they get away with saying 0 sugar

  • é, è, ê and ë are still a thing on french and belgian keyboards, no need for some weird key combination.

  • quibbles about categories could be a great podcast name.

  • Uhmm guys... no joke my youtube literally crashed after clicking on the video. I had to write this comment from a PC.

  • That long shaft at the end. 😂

  • a backtick is this: ` it is not only used in programming it is actually used a lot in script-writing

  • tell that to the jamaicans, batty boy

  • When i was little i thought turning that knob made the light turn green faster.

  • worse than my washing machine 🤔

  • U just gotta go fast. There's a vid of someone that does it at 100mph and it sounds a lot better. You'd prolly have to be at 125 to get it sound right.

  • It does not matter what you vote, it matters who counts the votes. We've seen this extensively in the 2020 US Elections. Totally corrupt. with lots of proof, affidavits etc...

  • 3:50 it's the Merrie Melodies cartoon outro

  • This is exactly the sort of video which you look at and assume the speaker is going to overly simplify the topic and miss out on key points that create the controversy to begin with

  • All of those are words in Welsh

  • Booba!

  • It's the American way to screw stuff up.

  • This guy should run for president

  • They need to salt this out

  • Goverment cant handle this level of threat

  • What kind of twisted person would ever even think of using more than one space after a stop. Where would you even get such an idea? Who teaches that? Who the heck does that, really?

  • Court records mentioned, surely a record? Interesting story all the same :)

  • ...TRUMP TOWN???

  • Question: My Pc did not alert me or recommend this . My phone did. And before you start .......... All the same settings

  • I dont know morse code but i despise high pitch sounds, stop damaging my hearing @tom scott so i can keep hating them!

  • Best superpower IMO. That or being a Replicator from Star Trek

  • Crash crash crash crash crash chhhdjhhgwbnh4tn

  • watchin him step on the door frame ... hurt me nobody. is .ever. supposed. to. do. that

  • it is still working :)

  • ⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫⚫

  • 2021 and it's even worse 🙃

  • I got the feels my palms were sweating looking at this this is the worst place to be on a rainy day

  • That's for maximum pleasure...

  • Maybe this is why progress bars since windows 7 (or maybe vista) have an animation going on on a bar, to let a user know, that in fact things are happening and the pc hasn't crushed. Yet.

  • 0:38 smeagol working the camera there

  • Now there is a phone app that does exactly that, put your face in movies

  • Putting this in 144p and watching him freeze the confetti is amazing

  • Shigity Schwa? Schfifty five.

  • It's incorrect now

  • 6:54 UFO

  • The US state of Indiana had an unfinished nuclear power plant at Marble Hill. After spending $2.5 billion the project that began in 1977 was abandoned in 1984. More than 100 U.S. plant cancellations happened after the Three Mile Island accident in 1979. Chernobyl was the kiss of death in 1986 for nearly any further new developments.

  • Why garlic bread? Because it's delicious

  • only for me 05.03.2021: This Video Has 27,726,718 Views

  • Wait, why can't you be drunk in a pub? That's what they're there for.

  • I'm just gonna pronounce every single G word with a hard G, except from Gif which I will pronounce with a soft G. See how many people I piss off.

  • "What're you in for?" "Played ding dong ditch"

  • The scary comb grossly stop because carriage partially fire inside a cheap house. rural, bashful walk

  • It's correct for me 27,727,599


  • Child Tom Scott: Fr*icking Tokyo drifts round the bend. Adult Tom Scott: Listens to the nice GPS lady saying: "Turn right at the roundabout."

  • why would anyone dislike this video?

  • tell that to the ccleaner guys with their restarting progress bar, or the windows file explorer with their asyntotic one

  • I clicked on this video and was like 'hey you know who that guy sounds like...that geography guy Tom Scott'... then I realised this is actually him in one of his primitive forms.

  • Perfectly acceptable to say when greeting: “are you well?”, person responds, the you reply back with “I thought you were!”. 😊

  • still spot on. lets see if it can last a year

  • That must be whats its like to be a psychopath trying to figure out morality.
