I don't have a problem with people doing stupid stuff and broadcasting the evidence for all to see. I like a good fail compilation as much as anyone.


We can't stop people from doing stupid things.

But how do we, should we, regulate the platform of stupidity for attention/likes/views/stars/etc?


But at what point should we say enough?


How exactly does one say enough, or rather how should it or can it be dealt with, except by Youtube itself regulating its content more strictly?

Honest questions.

A hundred years ago Harry Houdini did 'stupid stuff' for enthralled audiences, he was a celebrity. Evil Knievel was too.

What is wrong with people doing stupid stunts for views? Maybe he gets dead, maybe one day he gets rich, too.

thats actually a pretty good point.
what about the french high wire dude that waled between the towers?
or those old timey pics where a dude will be on the edge of a tall ass building balancing on a chair leg with a lady in his shoulders or some #.
throwing knives, shooting arrows to knock apples off peoples head.

the list goes on and on

YouTube prankster cements head in microwave. At what point do we decide that we have gone off the deep end in our narcissistic "hold my beer" mentality? This guy in Britain does crazy stuff for views. And guess what? His challenge was to "Nearly die."


In a YouTube video documenting the incident, the YouTuber started by opening the "Day 7" box on an advent calendar, to reveal an instruction, "Nearly die."

"I really wish this was clickbait, but as you guys know, nothing's clickbait on this channel," the star said. "This is the day where I will probably kill myself. Do not try this at home."


So he proceeded to fulfill that by getting some Polyfilla ready-mix, a microwave, and a breathing tube and more or less cementing his head inside the microwave and letting it set for two hours.

Is this where I mention that he has 3 million subscribers?

At one point during the stunt his breathing tube got knocked askew and he almost did suffocate, and it took the local fire department at least an hour to get him out because they basically had to chip the cement off from around his head to get whole contraption free.



As you can see, they were pretty unimpressed by the whole thing.

So really? When is enough, enough? It's not this is a random compilation of video fails or something. He did this to himself on purpose.


"Happy Friday eve, Ket". Saw something today. Im not gonna name it completely, but was in the vein of "Ask a .... .... Anything". Flatout pornographic descriptions, and easily accessed by any child with a click. Zero restrictions. Getting pretty crazy on what's out there accessible to any and every-one.

Gee. Years ago when I was a dummy; I wore regular shoes while pouring concrete bleachers. Worked eight hours long. So I guess I hope he monetized or whatever his account.

This guys face and head maybe his neck too, he's in for some chronic hurting.

Let me be clear. I am not against people doing stupid things. I am only against it when they then call in emergency services for an hour to save them.

I think Evil Knievel had emergency services expecting to be on hand ahead of time for most of his stuff, just in case. No calling 911 there. And I'm not sure how things were handled back in Houdini's days.

There was a curry house inspected by food hygeine that had a sofa in the kitchen with a dead man on it.


What else can I say, curry kills.

They would never let somebody 'jump the fountain' on a motorcycle at Las Vegas, or get thrown in a river in a box all tied up, today.

Its illegal, insurance risk, upholding the law, blah blah.

But we let Air Force pilots fly supersonic on bombing missions to destroy other countries, all_day_long.

Excuse me, the dichotomy is pretty thick.

We have been conditioned and legislated to hi anxiety by the hand wringers.

The French hi wire 'Artist' that walked the twin towers was Phillip Petit.


Another 'Act' resulted in death. Its on YouTube...

Oh, c'mon! If you don't get the point of YouTube failing to monitor its content? The youre far beyond understanding. What is it your are promoting? Lack of understanding? You don't get it? Don't care? Don't see it?

Respectfully? Then...a person/equal ATS member as we all are...has no point in commenting...or quoting anything. Granted...some who comment..dont get it, and dont care either.

Respectfully speaking again...I am not sure which category to place youre comment in. Friend...thats ok.

Peace and Light to you n all........Best M.S.

Freedom of speech is absolute.

Now that doesn't mean this brand of jackassery isn't charged for the emergency response. And that isn't cheap.

How old is this guy?
This was not happening before money was offered to YouTubers.
That process did several things, one it made it much much more difficult to find the truth.

Another is it helps with the separation that must be going on. Who is willing to watch while young People put themselves in danger and spend lives limited time to laugh while that person tries to make money doing this instead of something like working.
People watch videos of people torturing animals and kids to make them do things others find funny, like when they react with clear fear or even terror.
Duck taping babies mouths and hands, it's all good right?

We make choices, it has consequences in the world and it goes on your record. Choose to not watch.

It is already clear that most people find these things pleasing progress. No need to illustrate your point just read the comments they are with you, many are Parents and they are their Children's examples. I wonder how they will laugh when their own teen does this for some bucks.
