Quick, let us hear what this prehistoric bird bastard has to say before the video vanishes back into the memory hole again!

1. Sweet Green was priceless before the punchline.
2. I'm ashamed to say it took me a sec to get the milk joke...

Why is 9/11 truth considered antisemitic, truth doesn't fear investigation.

Wait? You guys are getting push notifications? (Insert ginger guy meme here)

Ugh this was an embarrassingly bad segment. I hope the regular season is better than this trash.

..."for how to ANSWERS them?!" WTF, NPR?

You guys should really do a web exclusive on how YouTube pirates are shoveling old and new episodes on this platform via fake accounts.... just saying.

Ironic that I got a push notification for this video. Did I need to know it now? Did I need to stop what I was doing and watch the video? YES.
Prog.Mishra - Prije 16 sati
Those fake laugh tracks made it uninteresting...I like john's words, but the stupid out of sync laugh tracks made it horrible.

A lot of people saying "watched this after a push notification", like who on earth needs push notifications on for YouTube, especially now when YouTube made it so much easier to turn them off?!

.... John. Can u pls address the GOOP lab. As a scientist, the fact ppl cannot tell at a first glance that she’s full of shit is v concerning. The fact ppl buy her products is more confusing than the potential fact that Paltrow believes all this BS herself. Apparently there’s this new show on Netflix. ... and since she’s public about being as good as America’s celeb doctors, I think it’s high time someone rip up her quack pop-up stall publicly and promptly.

This videos not gonna be deleted so I'm comfortable admitting that sometimes I like to sit in the corner of my bedroom with the lights off praying for the sins of my fellow men, women, and sandwich enthusiasts everywhere to be forgiven.

Did they change the writers? The humor seems different and actually seems lacking. Not to forget the tasteless "joke" at the end. This seems like a new writer issue.

*Gets sent second push notification about push notifications, but this time it has audio* lol

I got a push notification for this a couple of days ago but the video was set to private again.
Now it seems like a joke.
KDTV - Prije 17 sati
This was reuploaded after it was made private the first time. Why?

Currenlty news apps are spaming people with push notifications about Prince Harry and his wife moving to Canada. Why is that in anyway important to anyone? A guy in his 30s moved out of grandma's house, how is that news worthy?

Let me get this straight. You pulled my in to a video about push notifications needing to be actionable and time sensitive with a push notification that was neither actionable, nor time sensitive?

I missed you, John, you depressing parrot.

This is a bit daft. You choose which programs to receive notifications from. What’s the point?

I got a push notification for this video. Was it actionable? Yes, I was sorely lacking in some John Oliver. Was it urgent? Well, it was when the video went up two hours ago, but I'll take it.
yeah ok

for the longest time i thought that this video was deleted.

I find push notifications annoying and just turn them off.
For some reason I've gotten a lot of Forbes stuff about Destiny 2, the last place I'd expect guides from.

sidenote: I had to remove some news channels on YouTube I had subbed to as they would post way too many videos every day... obvy that affected my subscriptions tab too much... I like CBC and other Canadian content... but THEN every video they post has a French version which then essentially has a channel showing me double the videos for no reason... unsub.
**Maybe if YouTube can improve how we discover new content... like NOT having to continually scroll down... one monotonous action for all browsing :( the way web searches allow you to scroll down AND/OR skip by pages is alright but we need something even better.
I have pondered such a thought before... my idea is having the front facing camera track eye movement in a way which could automatically scroll down for the user if they look at the bottom 1/3 of the screen for example. An auto scroll that we could adjust the speed to could be an easier way to go about it. I was on Twitch recently and am super stoked that THEY added better search features 👍☺️ My favorite rambles are ideas like these... I often comment as a train of thought and at times spend a minute past the videos end pooping out an idea.
If you had the balls to get through my comment I am actually way curious if this behaviour is common? Why do I allow myself to get carried away rambling in this pointless echo chamber? Well... fact is... I enjoy it. Wow! is this same behaviour the reason for Reddit existing? 👌
