I'd love a two dudes talking podcast like Hello Internet.

I find it rather charming that you keep wearing those gloves even when they aren't needed. Great work Brady, love the new channel!

For some reason this video made me really REALLY happy, more so than Veritasium videos usually do. I guess it's just the wonderful experience of learning new things from a guy with a smile on his face. I feel like I should thank you more, Derek, so on behalf of all of us, I think I can say:

Thank you. Thank you so much.

I don't know why everyone's complaining about this video. I think it was a great compacted summary of the Graham's Number series, and having it in a prepared format made it, at least to me, finally sink in.

everyone is saying that this is a setup; and it obviously is. But right before he did the trick, he said that he was about to prove to us how much we try to find patterns. Is that not EXACTLY what he did? People discussing in the YouTube comments and in the real audience how he did that is, I think, the exact effect he was wanting.

Not sure if this a youtube thing, or something with the video, but none of the annotations are working for me at the moment.

I'm so happy that this exists, thanks for making this Derek. Although, I should have known better than to ruin the awesomeness by looking at the comments 😞

     I think Grey likes to become a little too sensationalist and radical when it comes to things like this. The think we must keep in mind is that, while this is highly possible and even likely, it is certainly not certain. Just because it is possible doesn't mean people will let it happen. I'm not commenting on if that's a good thing or a bad thing, but in order for such a large scale replacement of humans to take place, people have to set it into motion, and other people need to allow it to happen, and there WILL be people who will fight this strongly. And if there are enough of them, they WILL win.

     Furthermore, many scientists have agreed that recreating consciousness is largely impossible, and certainly won't happen soon. The human brain IS the most complex thing in the universe, and Grey doesn't give people enough credit for what they can do. 

     Finally, there is one thing that I am absolutely confident robots will never be able to do, no matter how advanced they get; science. I mean real, solid, actual science. You simply cannot program for curiosity, and the ability to creatively act on that curiosity. No matter how advanced these robots will surely become, they will not be able to, as per many a science fiction movie, "outgrow" their programming. They will always do what they are supposed to do, and not any more. Science and curiosity are too complex too program for, so robots will never be able to do anything close to real science.

sorry for my inevitably poor spelling and writing, and for sounding like a hyper-conservative old man.

This is kind of a merging of many popular ideas, but John should make a ten minute video in which he has singamajigs (or whatever those blue guys are called) recite a synopsis of twilight, all while wearing a T-shirt professing his love for pennies. At midnight, because why the hell not.

can't we stop arguing about politics and agree that this video is super hilarious?

I have actually felt this way on multiple occasions, the most extreme of which was when I listened to wtnv episode 34, A Beautiful Dream. The, shall we say, end of this episode really got to me....

Spoilers below
... I mean, the first conclusion that everyone jumps to is "poor Meghan". Cecil also jumps to this conclusion, and I think it's even what Jeffrey and Joseph were aiming for. And it makes sense; Meghan's condition does indeed suck. But who's predicament is really worse? Not only did Meghan get to live, but she was also, at least by some people, cherished and loved. Wen the computer died? Nothing. No one cared. No one stopes and said "poor computer". The computer, after working selflessly to make a beautiful and caring world for not only his only friend, but for all of humanity, gets killed, and after that, forgotten. The very memory of it is discarded. Human or not, I find that quite heartbreaking.

And maybe this is because of fiction ,or because the computer spoke and acted in many ways as a human, or at least some form of high consciousness. But every time I listen to the death of the computer, I am deeply saddened, not because the function of the computer is gone, but because the COMPUTER is gone.

Tl;dr I get deeply emotionally attached to fictional computers
