Captain Sparklez? Is that you!?

On occasions it has gone too far, but you are just like every other nut job out there who thinks radical change is good for society, dressing up safety equipment to be something dastardly, people opt to have surveillance equipment outside their house for safety reasons. I honestly can't tell what shit hole the earth would be without it.

Belgiun waffles are great…love the brussel sprouts..and its a beautiful country too…

Well obviously if it's on their own property it's justified, I'm talking about involuntary surveillance on somebody who is on their own property. Also, I could be considering a "radical", but I don't think radical change in general just to be radical is good. I'm a Voluntaryist. You should looks it up if you are interested, it's quite a nice consistent, and ethical, and logical philosophy.

Good job with the handshake this time Anthony :P
(in relation to the comments on the previous video where you "awkwardly left him hanging for a handshake"~something like that).

Did you go back and find that bloke after realising you missed the handshake?

The audio between the two is very uneven.

Considering its an incredibly ignorant comment from a clearly ignorant individual, you shouldn't be terribly surprised.

Wouldn't Mandarin be better as it is the most common language spoken in the world?

CrazyCatNanni July 20, 2013 - 12:46 AM

Agreed, I don't care what anyone speaks. Especially if they are helping others.

CMLounsbury July 20, 2013 - 2:41 AM

Did anyone else already see this type of technology on Prototype This! awhile back?

Susan Beresford July 20, 2013 - 1:53 PM

What is then?
Why would English be better?
Include sources if possible.

But now Italian scientists have made a holographic 3d infra-red glasses with which they can see through fire.

Jacob Albrecht August 13, 2013 - 11:24 PM

Christopher Hess August 20, 2013 - 9:51 AM
