this ad shit is pissing me off

dasraiser April 5, 2012 - 2:28 AM

look up Adblock Plus or NoScript, both fantastic and free addons for firefox, i didnt realise there where adverts on youtube.

dasraiser April 5, 2012 - 2:38 AM

ever look in to a blue sky to infinity and see them little doughnut shapes, they're cells floating around on your eye, well this is the same thing. the cameras are most likely set to infinity and most of these objects are just ice close to the camera lenses , the rest is junk. IMHO

they can't simply be satellites?

Idunhavanamez April 5, 2012 - 4:19 AM

It's actually the catalyst giving us the middle finger… oh wait Mass Effect is fiction and artistic integrity.

MrVanDay April 5, 2012 - 4:33 AM

I'm not gonna say it was aliens… BUT IT WAS ALIENS

REDTEAM22003 April 5, 2012 - 5:44 AM

thx bud, I will do this

Captain Hammersticks April 5, 2012 - 5:50 AM

No, the ISS is in low orbit where satellites are in high orbit.

Ads are what keeps youtube free.

TaNkSaLoT100 April 5, 2012 - 11:31 AM

erm .. Nah !

Shit, I spilled my one gallon glitter there.

the fin ads seem to be slowing utube down watched the ad but not the vid nice one uploader!

amped46 April 6, 2012 - 9:20 AM

O.o

Ognjen Mišić April 7, 2012 - 3:53 AM

I don't mean to point the obvious but…. ALIENS MAN!

Chaoitcme April 10, 2012 - 2:31 AM

That is one way of putting it. If youtube did not have ads then they would charge a fee to use their service so that they can pay producers. The short way of saying it is that ads are what keeps youtube free.

kapitalistas April 12, 2012 - 9:12 PM

i see here all believers in aliens haha

Chaoitcme April 13, 2012 - 3:57 AM

Adblock sounds great. Where did you download it from. Ads are a pain and slow down viewing of videos.

nadzorka2929 April 13, 2012 - 9:27 PM

@kapitalisttas What does Antigravity have to do with aliens? This is just NASA showing how stupid people are and clueless to describe things they observe so they say these objects move around the shuttle then slow down and stop in precise formation then become luminous notably the last one that moves into the center position and then Luminous as well and then expects stupid people to actually believe they are free floating particles that did these maneuvers——->

nadzorka2929 April 13, 2012 - 9:32 PM

——>and were tumbling to account for the pulsation being observed, yes tumbling would produce this effect but they were not tumbling as is seen as they move into formation then stop and hold this pattern and they remained Luminous on the dark side of Earth as well so was not sunlight reflecting off a tumbling object!!! A big red flag to idiots that would believe this to be particles, have you ever played pool and broke the rack(started the game)——>

nadzorka2929 April 13, 2012 - 9:37 PM

——->then the balls immediately decelerate without hitting the bumpers then stop in an exact formation?? I didn't think so and neither do free floating non powered objects in a vacuum!!! Laughs!!

nadzorka2929 April 13, 2012 - 9:47 PM

To the photo analyst in this video, you do understand this is an Ultra Violet camera and not a normal spectral camera right?? This formation could not be seen with the naked eye and only with a full spectral or full UV system! Same as seeing the UV led on your TV remote, take your cell phone turn the camera on then aim your tv remote in front of the camera lens and push a button, you cannot see it light up with your naked eyes but does light up on the display of your cell phone, same thing here!

nadzorka2929 April 13, 2012 - 9:50 PM

Many ufo's flying around and you can't even see them unless observed with a sensor like in a UV camera that can see that frequency!! Boo don't get scared been this way for a long time!!

nadzorka2929 April 13, 2012 - 9:51 PM

Is why little midgets have black eyes, their just contact lens that filter UV so they can see their own vehicles!! :))

keith y April 14, 2012 - 2:14 AM

When you want to find UFO's every little piece of debris, light, or dust you find is going to look like a UFO. Kind of like when you think your house is haunted by ghost you think every shadow, or creeky sound is a ….ooh shit what was that??

nadzorka2929 April 14, 2012 - 5:22 PM

Not in this case though not even close!!

MrEliiz April 17, 2012 - 7:07 PM

Ok? So you would rather pay massive amounts of dollars so that you may watch it without ads? (probably not), or you just want people to spend alot of hard ass work and then give it to you for free?
Sorry, dont do stupid comments, thats why I hate youtube comment section.

Iordan Bogdan June 21, 2012 - 9:23 PM

Sorry but 3 years ago youtube was doing just fine without the incredible annoying ads….

Astronaut poop?

NASA – Never A Straight Answer

RandomDivaLily March 3, 2013 - 12:38 PM

Dust particles?

C. Wilson July 27, 2013 - 4:55 PM

very impressive !

Paul Kenny March 25, 2019 - 2:24 AM

More disinformation , never ends.

Ryan Singh April 6, 2019 - 6:00 PM

big bear fuzzums April 9, 2019 - 1:38 PM

Bullshit conjob explanation!

Creep 2 currency April 25, 2019 - 2:58 PM

NASA send a SOS to space and Jesús is responding to the NASA. Is there something wrong with your system? NASA anyone can … Can anyone hear me? Bunch of weirdos

Creep 2 currency April 25, 2019 - 2:59 PM

Fuck NASA let me try México instead. Q' vo le compadres

Creep 2 currency April 25, 2019 - 3:03 PM

NASA is deaf so if you can hear me México, I need a place I can call my own.

Patricio Ansaldi June 10, 2019 - 2:37 PM

They gloss over Musgrave's snake story so hard. He has detailed and empirical observations of space "entities", he is very open about his belief in "extraterrestrials"
