You may notice a strange edit at the 14:18 mark. That's because I had to remove a tiny section of video as a result of FC Barcelona claiming all the monetisation on this video, and I was forced to remove a tiny clip of Messi scoring his first goal.

@Berton It seems obvious to me that you can't film an FC Barcelona game and then monetize it on LVlocal. Read the back of your game ticket. Your Boeing analogy falls flat because they make a physical product, not visual entertainment.

Today is Feb-16-2021 FAIL! The miracle of Starlink that was promised failed to happen. That is "great internet service at a decent price". Starlink wants $500 for equipment and $100 / month for service. That ain't cheap! My present service is free equipment and $75/month service. (55 DN/6.0Up and 35 ping) What a giant let down!!!

How can this type of propulsion work if space is a total vacuum ? If you have nothing for atoms to push against, how could it work ? I know others have asked this, what is your explanation.
Samarth Pirms 22 dienām
@Patrick Shelley he properly asked question instead of just outright denying it , if someone is willing to learn I'd try to help, otherwise I'd have probably made fun too.
Patrick Shelley
Patrick Shelley Pirms 22 dienām
@Samarth Sadly I know a few losers who believe in such conspiracies. I've tried to wake them up but they're basically in a cult now. It's why I recognized him so easily. Funny thing is, you answered his first question, he's just too blind to realize it. Take care.
Samarth Pirms 23 dienām
@Patrick Shelley well, I thought he must be a student who didn't understand this thing Which is the main reason why this problem arises in the first place.
Patrick Shelley
Patrick Shelley Pirms 23 dienām
@Samarth You're talking to a flat earther. Logic will get you nowhere. I'd say don't waste you time but perhaps someone else will read your explanation and learn something
Samarth Pirms 23 dienām
@Jon Park Have you tried? Cuz I've tried it a lot While understanding all this and also while explaining you all this. You see, we humans have always been on earth, moved by friction between ground and our foot, saw birds fly by pushing air by wings. Idea of jet propulsion is too alien to us. To learn you have to make effort and imagine, I can just try to make you understand You can search up some videos which will make you understand it better It's not a fake technology, there's working proof right infront of our eyes. But you have the choice of being blind, I'm not stopping you, just guiding you.

I was really enjoying this until i saw which images of Africa you choose to use. The funniest part is that Elon Musk is a South African, he was born, raised and educated here, but thanks to you using the images that you choose and implying that we don`t have high speed internet. Stupid, ignorant and racist people think that we live in huts, share our cities with Lions and walk around with our tits out. My house has a Gigabit fibre connection feeding my mesh network, we have VW, BMW, FORD, TOYOTA..... etc. car factories that produces vehicles for export built to German and Japanese standards and quality levels. Denel makes some of the best weapons on the planet, and we once had 100% South African made nuclear weapons, you guys buy uranium from us. I can`t believe that one of my top 10 channels still view Africa like this even after the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Your perception for Africa is dated, ignorant, mis-leading, patronizing and the on the verge of being racist, we don`t need your so called charity. yours sincerely GFY
