He vacillates between meaningless mumble and absurd crap. I really can't make anything sensible of it at all.
How this kind of thing ever gets an audience is beyond me. My intuition says that you need to be a lot smarter than that to scam people. But apparently not.

Here is a video I made a while ago titled "How to organize chemicals." It is a horrible video with so much irony. The intent was to show how to organize chemicals safely, but all of the chemicals are just sitting on open shelves where anyone could mess with them. (Thankfully now I have all of my chemicals in locked cabinets). Also, I didn't know about this thing called a tripod...

Jimbob is stark raving bonkers. One really has to wonder what drives people to publish that hind of stuff on the teh internettings?


publishing a video have many motifs: des&information, fun, idiots with nothing more positive to do...

MMS is used by milions? of persons around the world, and say they have cured of diseases. you can call this "placebo effect" "shit effect" or whatever you want, but the reality is the reality, gulp down or not :D
in reality MMS is part of a church, so respect the free people's beliefs :D

Everyone's gotta start somewhere. The way I look at it, any interest in hobbies besides video games is a win these days.

Those shelves were very unsafe though! :) Glad to hear you got them in cabinets now.

What i like to do is get small bottles and fill them with the acids and bases I'll use on a common basis. i.e. I have a 20ml bottle of HCl, H2SO4, NaHO, NHO3. Then I store the main bottles elsewhere. This way i don't have to touch the large containers unless refilling.

What is funny about it is that the video maker doesn't realise vinegar IS acetic acid. The comments are pretty funny too.


Love the myriad of PhD chemists in the comments hahahaha


YouTube video comments are funny by themselves. This video is gold... but it's good to see a kid trying out new things and experimenting, even if he's incorrect on some accounts.

There's an XKCD comic that discusses a virus which reads a post on YouTube back to the poster upon posting. Who's working on this?

I'm not so sure this could really be considered chemistry but there are definitely reactions happening. There seems to be some argument as to what really happened. Saftey seems to be of little concern. He might as well stood in front of an exploding shaped charge.

I'm not so sure I should be posting this, but here it goes (myself-inane, very ignorant, and never good in English class). I admit I haven't watched any of the videos, but I've read every comment in the thread. Bad spelling? Look at all the misspelled words in the posts. Better use of chemicals? Every location has different laws and access to different chemicals. What someone can get in massive quantities dirt cheap might cost someone else an arm and a leg, or have no access to those chemicals at all. Doing things unsafe? I thought everyone had their own level of what they think is safe or dangerous. Costs? I didn't think everyone on this board was a poor struggling soul. Don't be envious of those that are well off. Plenty of things I wish I had when it comes to chemistry, but what I can't afford may be trivial to those that can. Mixing chemicals randomly? I'm guessing there's been more discoveries by accidents than by well thought out procedures. I can't recall how many times I've read about big discoveries that were "accidentally discovered by chance". As the saying goes, a big discovery is not usually met with Eureka! but with Huh, that's funny. Besides, it's always funny to watch someone doing what I would call stupid shit, but who at sometime in life hasn't. Alcohol is a big promoter in that area. And with that said, I'll definitely have to watch some of the videos because they sound like they're hilarious. Just a few cents worth of nothing, sorry.

here's the next best thing... a browser plugin which changes YouTube comments to HERP DERP DERP DERP HERP

Now that I think about it, the SM user experience could be greatly improved if we had the option of herpDerping posters of our choice...

I get a surprising number of intelligent comments on some of my videos. I really like the feedback. There are probably 20 or 30 professionals among the few thousand subscribers I have, which means every video of mine is scrutinized by a whole panel of experts. They catch my every mistake! I try my best to correct them (and not to make them in the first place...) but some minor stuff slips through sometimes. (I referred to niacin as vitamin B6 in a recent one rather than B3. D'oh!)

The more popular ones like "Mercury" do attract a bunch of Amateur Safety Specialists (ASSes for short) informing me of my imminent death because I dipped my hand into it. That, and the gem I found on my video about isopropyl nitrite: "Can I jack off with it??" The silly thing is that the guy's Facebook and YouTube account are linked so it shows his real name... pinnacle of evolution, that one.

It's people like this guy that give chemistry a bad rep. Kewl experiments, without any form of protection (not even basic sense), relies entirely on wind to get rid of dangerous bromine fumes... I have a feeling he just dumped that bromine in a ditch.
And speaking of dangerous fumes, it's nice to see that he still thinks it's a good idea to breath in sodium hydroxide fumes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBf92KajeUo

Yeah, uh, that video was definitely bad...
I used to have a video on making barium sulfate on my YouTube account that I made 3 years ago...That was some low-quality stuff there, too...

Oh, yeah, that guy! I follow him to get laughs at his "science". All his videos are to the end of Internet 'fame', and are quite uninteresting.

For whatever reason it seems the new trend on all these youtube channels is to just pour molten metal on random crap. I know of another channel where the person pours molten copper on stuff. It gets old.
