The endless disparagement of "elf n safety" is a major contributory factor IMO. It's hard to believe that something as ordinary as sugar could cause a devastating explosion. When people are primed by the tabloids to see health and safety as being bureaucratic, overprotective and out of touch with reality, it's doubly difficult to persuade them to take these sorts of risks seriously. Many industries have these sorts of subtle, insidious hazards.

The regulations for this industry like many others are built on the backs of tragedy. Similar to how Grenfell will usher in a new set of rules for cladding, the explosive dust and gas regulations have built up over time gradually since Victorian mining disasters. Anyone involved should be well aware of the risks, and most are, to varying degrees.

Layers of dust are only really an issue if they cause something that needs ventilation for cooling to heat up. Ignition occurs when it reaches the auto-ignition temperature of the dust mixture. Clouds can be much more dangerous and any spark with enough energy can potentially set it off.

Sugar, flour, etc. are seemingly innocuous materials but the calories they contain are energy in joules in the same way that a battery or a stick of dynamite stores energy densely (I think?).

Or if a sudden draft or something dislodges it and turns it into a could, especially if it's high up. Or where an initial explosion dislodges more dust setting off a chain reaction.

I worked somewhere with a serious dust problem, it wasn't a combustible dust, but it was still a deeply unpleasant environment for the people who had to work in it and it still stems from the same management attitude.

Sorry to bore you lads, my dad would come home after every shift telling me that everyone in his shift would spend at least an hour pipe-vacuuming all the aluminium powder ready for the next shift, and those working the shift after his couldn’t be arsed doing a good enough job cleaning/vacuuming therefore everyone was in the shit from H&S. So this lead to a very bad atmosphere, and passive-aggressive finger-pointing from those who didn’t give a shit about the safety of others. My dad, in particular who genuinely cared about the safety of those he worked with and doing a good job of things, was one of those at the brunt of all this.

Aluminium powder is fucking explosive.

Sadly there is probably a lot of that mentality in all walks of life. Only after shit goes down do people wake up to the risks. I wonder, is it better to be blissfully unaware, or to bury your head in the sand?

One positive note is that because the sales and marketing people at the companies where kit for places like this are made are mostly incompetent, a lot of kit is approved to a way higher spec than it actually needs. This additional safety factor might inadvertently help to accomodate for some of the general apathy.

The other thread got me wondering about what youtube channels you lads can recommend. Topic can be anything, just what you find to be good and interesting to watch.

>Issac Arthur
I posted one of his videos awhile ago but it's well worth repeating. Every Thursday he does a really interesting and in-depth look at science and futurism concepts and does a really good job of explaining them simply but also covering the unnoticed drawbacks and benefits.

He has kind of gone to shit over the past few months but this is still a good channel for basic electrical engineering fun.

>Tom Scott
Mostly for his 'Things You Might Not Know' series. He goes over some pretty interesting things that you might never notice but are all around us.

Like Sean Locke I prefer Lee Mack on the panel shows quipping off one liners or minor anecdotes rather than standup (for Locke) or Sitcom (for Mack).

Without a doubt, this has become my favourite adult cartoon and I can't wait for the next season.

Dark, clever, brilliantly amusing. Really fucking dark in places.

There are episodes on YT but some of these have had the voices altered to avoid automatic take downs I guess?

I think you're just prolonging the argument by making points like this, no matter how valid. Not that there was ever a mod in this thread defending or lambasting Star Wars, just for the record. It'd be different if the lad got banned for being right (or wrong) about Star Wars, but what actually happened was he made an infuriatingly silly point and was comedy banned for it, at which point he asked for everyone's badge numbers and made it a whole thing, after which he was banned twice more for fun/autism.

Believe it or not, mods do not last long here if they make frequent over-judicious bannings.

I would never have pointed it out but RLM used it as well so I was wondering if some new classification was going on what with us living in the future and all.

If you can stomach mid-60s sci-fi on a shoestring budget then do the release order (it helps to warm up with the 1959 Twilight Zone):

Otherwise start on TNG. Most people (wrongly) suggest doing it by series which is simpler but forgets that the broadcast order exists. This looks complicated but things will never be as good again:

1) Start with the TNG episode 'Darmok' to give you a taste of peak Trek because the first season or two is going to be a struggle.
2) Watch solely TNG from the pilot* until S6E11 (the second episode of Picard talking about lights) and then alternate episodes with DS9 starting with the pilot.
3) TNG will end. Watch the VII movie Generations and continue DS9 up until the episode where Quark finds a baby then alternate with VOY episodes.
4) Before S5E6 of DS9 watch the TOS episode 'The Trouble with Tribbles' then watch the episode - trust me it is a really cool episode and I can't think of any other franchises that have done what this does.
5) After S5E8 of DS9 watch the VIII movie First Contact (important for main plot).
6) After S7E9 of DS9 watch IX movie Insurrection (movie plot motivation improved)

Taskmaster is great.
Modern life is goodish is ok, though not overtly funny. Definitely watchable though.
You could download Bill Bailey's tours too like Tinselworm and Part Troll.
Guy Martin Vs. the Driverless car is good too.
Tim Minchin is similar to Bill Bailey, so you can check out his DVDs - 'So live' and 'Ready for this?'
Britain's Biggest Hoaxer on All 4 is great. It's about Simon Brodkin, the guy who pranked are Theresa and Trump. Trump was livid.

21860 YouTube's Lowest Quality Dreck, post what YOU find.
So because I'm a miserable, contrarian, bastard the whole Five Night's at Freddie's craze rather passed me by. But I was watching some blokes short and surly review of it and I decided to look at some of the YouTube content as it was something the reviewer mentioned. Now obnoxious "let's players" screeching into their webcams hasn't passed me by but this shite right here is a brand new world of wank for me: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCr8O6yAciPCGKWBEIASK2lg/videos


It's just so mindless and cynical, every episode begins with a thirty second appeal for the presumably pre-teen viewers to like, subscribe, check the notification bell and visit their store, even before the show has started. They have almost half a dozen channels of this dogshit, and while it's not popular enough for me to tar every kid under the age of sixteen as a mush-brain it's not exactly Noggin The Nog, who apart from having a nearly racist name is basically a master work compared to FNaF MineCraft RP. In the the first minute of Noggin the Nog you learn that a windmill makes flour; in the first minute of FNaF MC RP we find out they've got a discount code, for their own store, I suppose? Which makes it not even really a discount code. I wasn't even raised on Noggin, but I think Kerching definitely gave me a healthier view of capitalism than "buy shit, idiot".

I've thrown a lot of shit at the wall in this OP, but with seventy gigawatts of video uploaded to the internet every millisecond I'd be interested to see what crap you lads have seen.

Having read this thread and given it a few moments more thought than I would usually give, most of the debate around here (including that Medium article) appears to view the internet and dangers therein as one where Kid's lack of ability to choose and/or filter content. Can I suggest that it may be more productive to think of it in physical terms as more like a library, or a little more absurdly, like popping out onto the street. You wouldn't leave little timmy to wander around the bookshop, or to amuse himself out on the road, not because you think he'd make poor choices but because of the obvious dangers present, and because he probably wouldn't have much fun. You'd take him to the right section and let him have a look, or to the park. I think to treat the internet like it's something new or even more threatening thing to kids because of some implied lack of control or filtering is purely down to poor parenting.

Similarly, it's not the internet which is ruining our brains but the way we choose to not engage with the the production of content and instead passively consume. Most of us are really just poking that 'Next Video' button when we click on links to medium articles, read to news or hop on redtube, and leaving a vaguely structured form of fjierjfierfjirjf in the comments.

This is obviously quite different from the OP of this thread, but it's definitely YouTube dreck. I mean, from the generic, brand new, untraceable account, to the Mr Chrome comeo, this is such reprehensible and obviously untrue shit I dare not imagine the dark minds behind it.

I agree unless there is a built in tool in video software now for automatic face blurring, it is suspiciously professionally produced for some arseholes first random dash cam upload . Then there is that the events unfold with a nearly too pefect swift pace and the action is perfectly framed.
