Yesterday I saw a ball mill video on YT on milling aluminum, it was 15min of which 10 min was on safety that burning powdered aluminum is so bright it can blind you. What the hell...? Is this bullshit really required, who wants this? who cares?

Work is a different thing, there should be labels and rules, but YT is an entertaining platform nothing more.

Im not sure I entirely agree. I don't think there's anything wrong with promoting safe practices. But the video you described seems to have gone overboard. I think the simple safety intros you see on Chemplayer, NurdRage, etc are perfectly adequate.

And while I did say I think that NileReds channel has taken a dive with the more traffic he gets, I really think his videos where he posts the cleanups are pretty useful/important. Not everyone that watches the YT videos is going to look up how to clean up responsibly or store your waste safely. So I don't mind those at all. I think he puts them on his NileBlue channel, which makes sense to me (that channel seems to be less chemistry, more of the day to day kinda stuff).

Personally I like NileGreen lol, though the creator of this channel is pretty good and actually does his own stuff in the videos unlike Nile Pink who just hacks NileRed videos into a choppy not so funny short.

Ah man, idk about that. I mean I'm no genius or anything, but he seems very smart to me, and I learn a lot watching his videos.
Regarding his politics, even though I agree with most (not all) of his political views, it's a little tiring to hear politics come from every direction, then get them even from there. I suppose from his perspective he has a platform and political views he feels are important enough to put on a chemistry channel, but from my standpoint as a viewer, I wish he would at least keep the politics to a minimum.
But... he can do with it as he wants :-) Im sure he knows how people feel about it.
You are annoyed with it even though you don’t take issue with most of his viewpoints. Imagine how it must feel to someone who disagrees with most of it. Really renders it unwatchable. He seems smart when it comes to chemistry, sure. But he really throws his credibility out the window when he spends half the video whining about how “liberals are ruining science” instead of focusing on… science. Is he losing potential viewers/subscribers because of his approach? That’s hard to say. On the one hand, there are people like me who are put off by his pointless injection of politics into what would otherwise be good videos. On the other hand, I’m sure there are others who relish hearing his tirades that victimize the poor home chemist who is constantly suffering under the boot of tyranny (even as he freely posts videos of his experiments performed from his well-stocked home lab), and maybe they would get bored and move along if he wasn’t feeding into their emotions like that. Either way, I’m sure he’ll never change, cause he seems to enjoy “owning the libs” at least as much as he enjoys chemistry.

One thing I have to say about PMCs well stocked lab, is that was mostly bought with or are donations.

I used to run his Discord server before I stepped away and basically left Discord period. I was becoming a troll like all the rest on Discord, but I digress.

He himself is not funding much out of his own pocket, that is from his faithful viewers.

I do understand how one can find the politics hard to get past, specially when you do not agree with it. Not that I agree with everything he says either.

My point was that he has the freedom to have such a lab. Doesn't really matter who is funding it.

I've watched his channel a few times. Just to clarify, PMC tirades against YouTube cracking down on channels (including chemists like ChemPlayer), not the boot of tyranny against labs in the USA (there isn't any afaik, we can mostly do want we want here in the USA).

I'm not agreeing or disagreeing with his views in this reply, simply clarifying what his "boot of tyranny" tirades are usually about.

The guy openly wears a MAGA hat in his videos. Don't even try to pretend he's not anti-government. There are probably a whole lot of other adjectives I could pin on him too after a few conversations.

I know the guy very well, I ran his server for a reason, he doesn't pick people lightly to do that. He definitely is not pro-government, but he is far from anti-government. He is pro freedom, but understands that government and law is absolutely needed.

He is a strong Republican supporter but far from a bigot. Honestly when people take the time to actually get to know him he is a real "Sweet Heart" as many would put it.

But I am not trying to get political by mentioning the government as politics is against the forum rules. We had to ban politics from his server too because it was turning into a full on war in the politics channel and damn does that get exhausting to moderate.

One thought, maybe he can do 2 videos, the full video and the reprise which is just the chemistry sans the politics.

Edit:

BTW, I know lots of Canadians up here who are/were Trump supporters.

I always thought his NileBlue videos were the more candid kinda videos, or cleanup videos (which I actually liked). But both of them are now just PBS level high school chem now :(

Yes, it would have been cool if he did it as a multistep synthesis ovr a few videos I least make a couple of the precursors to the the juice.

YT become more and more dicks. They even try to elict copy of your identity card to "verify your age". If you don't do this, you cannot see certain videos (for example Tom's video on tetrazoles). I don't know how in US, but in my country this YT demands are illegal.

I know this is kinda off topic and I already quoted this but a new, more universal method was revealed someone sent me furry videoss to me: just add "&has_verified=1" at the end of the age restricted video:

PMC has good content but the politics is hard to get past.
Particularly the covid crud, which is anti-science.

Im in the PMC discord server, and he announced today that he deleted his YT channel and will not be doing chem videos any more. Apparently it's not fun any more because.... politics. lol.

Yes, ChemicalForce is amazing! I think ChemicalForce and Thyzoid are some of the best up-and-comers on YouTube.

I agree. Thyzoid has been doing some quality stuff lately and at quite a remarkable rate. Really enjoying it.
Does anyone know if he is a member here?

Edit:
Seems he is, but not active and has not visited for a while.
Thyzoid

I have seen a lot of Thyzoid's videos lately. He is incredibly prolific and I really like his work. I wish I could be as active as him with my account.

Yeah, I pestered him into getting a Patreon, which is pretty awesome. Definitely worth signing up.
