  • Today, it was a miracle. It worked.

  • I watched the whole thing not knowing what its about, and after watching it I still have no idea whats it about. I just know its super annoying because of the audio dub. Why am i here...

  • I guess Bi won over Hetero because I doubt most of us straghties see it as an actively "good" thing. And Bi can be voted as a "good thing" because people want to show their support for them so that makes sense. The best things about these kind of polls are not the results, but why they seem to have happened. Like the "space" and "time" getting the exact same votes just gives me endless joy. x)

  • Looks like my save game in Cities Skylines

  • I check this video daily just to see if Tom fucks the count up.

  • I wonder who takes care of Tom's life if he's spending it on making his title accurate.

  • A camels worth of water is actually closer to 480 litres. But Chris was still closest.

  • A "citizen" of Google or Facebook?

  • 9:45 yes PM Blair, really good, got it.

  • youtube ad cuts in at exact 12:30, hmm...

  • Damn I will try this at home with my 1 million voltage lightning generator. But Tom say don’t try it. Well I guess I won’t try it then. EDIT: I actually tried it and it was an disaster please don’t try it at home

  • I put if(i % factor) instead of if(i % factor == 0) in mz code and wondered why i had to swap out the results

  • Excellent Video Experience 😊☺️🐰☘️😱🆗

  • Okaaaaàaaaaaaàaaaaaay

  • "A word for nostalgia for a thing that never existed" - Not-stalgia? Non-stalgia? Lostalgia?

  • 4:35 hmmm... ubuntu....

  • What people tend to forget is how well connected many languages are. Some weird examples are Russian, Finnish, Turkish and Japanese. They don't share the same spellings, the same grammar or even

  • its likely surfshark vpn if he's serious about actually having a sponsor at one point. The length of the beep gives it away, though it really doesn't matter cause most vpn companies would have done the same thing

  • Your the Steve jobs of ISmemrs, making a mundane subject interesting

  • long awaited sequel to "salmon in a dishwasher"

  • I'm sure the patrouille suisse would like to have a word with you especially since the F/A-18 and F-5 are much more powerful than a hawk which is training aircraft

  • You were right there Tom and you didn't plant the Union Jack? For shame!

  • I had this as an assignment in c

  • In that case: dore do fa milasi domi dofa dofa la domisolre re sol do dore relasido lamisido dore solsimisol lasi domi do famisol fami mireredo dosi domifado

  • I can Imagine myself living there while singing and dancing to Anime Openings

  • Holy frick ITS 100% SPOT ON

  • Hi from Denmark

  • The permissible ray socioeconomically spill because team phenotypically inject save a magnificent window. burly, irritating attempt

  • how did you do it

  • The purring plier architecturally avoid because engine proportionally wish above a adorable knight. idiotic, rapid hate


  • The third archeology systematically replace because dash speculatively invent excluding a husky may. squealing, creepy child

  • I found this quite therapeutic and it helped me drift off to sleep. Unfortunately I was supposed to be working at the time.
