Rubbish click-bait title. I'm rather certain Europe hasn't been destroyed.

Aw.. not another video of pictures! This is the wrong format for this type of thing. Really needs to be in a picture gallery or something

I don't think gently explaining to people why they are stupid will help :)

+1 7. mikeab commented 5 years ago on video Adam Savage on why you can’t boil potatoes on Mt. Everest

Like trying to cook potatoes in a slow cooker. But what I wanted to know was, what temperature does it take to cook a potato?

How long ago did the ancients live? I wouldn't consider the seventeenth century to be that long ago.

Landed on top which pushed the leader back. Don't think he could repeat that too often.

+2 13. mikeab commented 6 years ago on video Things Men Do That Make Women Secretly Jealous

#8 I think it all has to come from within, and the realisation that the freedom and permission to be ourselves comes not from society but from our own beliefs. We all, as individuals, contribute towards society's norms.

Agree, #6, I'd rather see a forward running video of a backwards running race, rather than a backwards running video of a backwards running race.

Interesting how their bodies shimmer, looks like waves. Something like you'd see on a squid or an octopus.

0 18. mikeab commented 7 years ago on video Her Dad Died Just Before Her Wedding But What Her Brother Did Left The Whole Room In Tears

I really hate these types of titles. They seem rather dishonest in that they aren't very descriptive of what the video is about, instead using emotive language to get people to click on them.

#3 I don't get it either but he's obviously making a living from it and, most importantly, is enjoying what he's doing. I feel quite envious. If only I had a job which evoked such passion - would never have to work again :)

0 21. mikeab commented 7 years ago on video You're Doing It All Wrong - How to Sauce Pasta

The problem with this way is the proportion of pasta to sauce is the same for each mouthful. Sometimes while eating I want more pasta, or more sauce, which isn't possible when it's all blended together.

Coke knew exactly what kind of reaction they'd get. Controversy like this makes for free publicity - just look at all the coments on here and the fact it was actualy posted, and accepted, on to Snotr.

How is shoving your face into a trap a fail? Seems like he succeeded at it. Though why anyone would want to video, upload, or watch it, is a mystery.

We're all going to die so nothing really matters? How we treat each other, and the enviroment, while we're here means nothing, as long as we're well-off and enjoying our material wealth?

+5 43. mikeab commented 10 years ago on video Pumpkin Nutshot

Not the least bit entertaining or even slightly humorous.

Just sad that some people like to film this kind of stuff, and even sadder that some people like to post it to a video site. But what's saddest of all is some people accept this rubbish to their video site.

+11 44. mikeab commented 10 years ago on video The Lost Thing - Short Film

Fantastically imaginative! Themes of adult life compared to childhood, of not "wanting to forget" and keeping a place for all the 'childish' thoughts and wonderings.

But we do tend to forget, being too busy with adulthood.

I think he should be charged with murdering his own son, as he had to do something that he knew would kill him.

If he'd done nothing and the people died, I think the most he could be charged with is manslaughter by neglect, as he didn't have to actually do anything.

Anyway, it kind of reminds me of this ethics problem:

#7 Before bees swarm they eat a lot of honey (so they have enough energy until they find a new home) which makes them quite docile. A full bee is a contented bee :)

+6 61. mikeab commented 11 years ago on video How to Photograph Wolves at Wolf Park

This evokes what it must have been like when man first domesticated wolves - what was the nature of that relationship? Did they help each other when hunting? How did that relationship evolve into all the different breeds we see today, from hunting dogs, sheep dogs and even more recent sniffer dogs and hearing/seeing dogs? Fascinating stuff.

The last free people? Being ignorant of all the advancements of humanity makes them free?
Free of greed and exploitation I guess, but what about all the positives?
Who among us would like to leave all the benefits of civilisation behind to go live in the jungle?

Just a thought.

+3 77. mikeab commented 12 years ago on video Newsman finds politician's name funny

This guy (Paul Henry) was a New Zealand T.V. presenter. He's a bit of a tool. Although a bit funny at times - I did smirk a bit at his "mustache gate" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4yt9olqwIeE - he's totally not suited to be a T.V. presenter with his inappropriate and blatantly racist comments. He resigned recently, but why T.V.N.Z didn't fire him a long time ago is beyond me.
