  • ''EAJ'' ok tom 7:07

  • Those paper crumpling noises are really annoying.

  • Video: 7 years ago Me:MOTHER WHY DIDNT YOU SHOW ME THIS I WAS 3

  • 100% right

  • Actually you might not know is now the fast trades have the information before the stock market using the order flow app sends orders not to the exchange but an order processor which analyze the trade then sends to exchange.

  • Not so secret you have just told the world 🌎

  • That one aeroplane going by at 1:07: 😟

  • Is the world flat or box

  • could try, hops flowers ( humulus lupulus ) then try test for cannabis

  • Yes, there are easier ways of spreading misinformation. It's called mainstream news.

  • it made me remembare about gothic bot

  • 0:48 Tom Scott... have joined the dark side, I see. You rickrolled 26 million people.

  • i can't be the only one who called tag 'tiggy' can i?

  • Eu sou um nada 😭

  • Não mudou pra mim 😥

  • I hit space 3 times. So get recked 😎

  • He's wearing a red shirt, that's all proof I need

  • "Hello, this is the real me and not simulated" I don't believe you.

  • Hearing about "Jordan" without seeing her face showed me I still have a long ways to go pertaining my personal biases.

  • I think Grossjean holds the new record of peak G-force now.

  • The Indian Guy on ISchats explaining what your teacher couldn't :

  • That just looks like youtube in 2009

  • POV: Your here because you want to see if it's still "spot-on".

  • 🦶 ⬅️ Das a foot. 🦵 ⬅️ ___________.

  • I had last week that we had to makr a little game for school. When I was busy I had to make some text and I didn't find an easy way in the program. So I made multiple pictures of the text maid in paint. When I was a couple of pictures in I noticed an "fonts" button in the program so I clicked on it and saw it was for text. For some reason I thought that's nice now I don't have to do this stupid stuff with paint and yes make it in. And my brain just decided to delete all the pictures from the program. I found out that it didn't work as I hoped it would. Luckily I still had those pictures but I still had to add all the objects and spirits again. I also had change the rooms again bc well those also changed.

  • London police be like: HOW YO DAREE

  • Scam.

  • When mum says dont waste food

  • bruxaria

  • ?

  • has anyone ever really been fooled by current deepfake technology?

  • I’m so proud of humanity we finally sent deliciousness out into space 😭✨🥺

  • Imagine Twitch originally being a coffee shop founded in the 1800s.

  • who else in 2021

  • "A joint Harvard MIT doctorate in medical engineering and medical physics" is possibly the biggest nerd-flex I've ever heard.

  • Still, analyzing the digital data doesn't tell us if Tom is a synth

  • ?

  • Wow I want to that!

  • Still 100% spot on

  • Next thing you know, 200 years later we still are getting Tom Scott uploads from his double

  • are you guys ok?

  • *Elon Musk defeated*

  • Absolutely terrifying and interesting at the same time

  • I love how you put citations on screen during your videos.

  • Love the spare red shirt hanging there!

  • No the voice sounds generated. The rest is okay but the cadence is off. Its like a text to speech computer is speaking with a Tom Scott overlay.

  • Doesn't look very underground to me.

  • 'Hello this is the real me, not simulated' is exactly what a simulation would say.

  • Ten illegal things to do in London 10milion people: interesting..

  • The answer would seem to be empty it. But the how is the dificult part. A frame around it with robotic manipulator arms would seem to bw the way. Empty it ton by ton.

  • Glad to be in Singapore where we use British plugs.

  • Tom scott is not an.... AI?

  • There is a buried gas pipeline right across the British Isles - I remember it being constructed !

  • AI tom scott is an scp. He’s breached containment. Stay indoors, don’t look outside, and DON’T LET HIM INTO YOUR HOME.

  • There have been a number of instances of actors passing away before finishing a piece of work. Would it be ethical for a production company to finish a production with a deepfake, and should the estate of the late actor be paid the fee the living actor would have received? And what about digitally resurrecting a long dead actor or historical figure. Imagine a ww2 movie with deepfake H*tler & Churchill.

  • Jet fuel ???

  • Why did I have a feeling I knew what the UNIX epoch was
