YouTube is Still Stupid

A couple of months ago, I wrote how I had received a “community standards strike” on my channel on YouTube, thus causing me not to be able to upload videos longer than 15 minutes.  I appealed the decision, of course, because I was completely in the right, but it took them almost 3 months to […]

YouTube is Stupid

I’ve got a YouTube channel and I usually have no problems there.  Oh sure, I get plenty of fake copyright notices from people who have no clue what fair use is, but that’s just a cost of doing business there.  I dispute everyone and I win every dispute. It’s stupid but it certainly isn’t YouTube’s […]

YouTube is Pissing Me Off

I recently put up a second YouTube channel specifically for this blog and while I’m enjoying making videos and they’re getting relatively successful, one thing is driving me absolutely crazy.  YouTube seems unable to decide, no matter where I actually put the videos, where they will actually end up.  On more than one occasion, I […]

New on YouTube: The Bitchspot Channel

I’ve been quite disappointed in my presence on youTube for a while.  Yes, I know, I hardly have any presence at all as the Bitchspot Blog, mostly all I do there is post video copies of the Bitchspot Report Podcast, with a couple of slipshod episodes of Bitchspot Quickies dropped with great irregularity.  That’s not […]

What is Philosophy For?

I’ve questioned a lot of “philosophers” over the years, asking what is modern philosophy good for and haven’t really gotten a lot of good answers.  Sure, they’ll toss out all the things that the ancient philosophers have done, but what has philosophy done for us lately? Anyhow, I came across this short video on YouTube […]

Who Cares About Famous Atheists?

I swear, the level of hero worship in atheism is just as bad as it is among theists.  If you watch Twitter for any length of time, you will see endless dripping praise for any well-known person who happens to be an atheist, or who makes any kind of non-religious statement, as though what someone […]

Atheism+: A Response to Matt Dillahunty

I’ve been waiting for a couple of days for Matt Dillahunty’s video response (well, any response, he just did it via YouTube) to the incident on the Atheism+ forums.  I think it’s important to get this out in a timely manner, so here’s a mid-day post.  For those that haven’t heard the story, I’ll leave […]

Not Safe For Children

I’ve had this in the queue for a couple of days but it just hadn’t reached the top.  However, I’ve seen it posted on a number of different blogs so I might as well play along. Every once in a while, I come across these short YouTube videos that really require no explanation or comment.  […]

Too Dumb to Live

And they wonder why most people think the South is stupid?  This is Georgia representative Henry “Hank” Johnson explaining his fears that too many people on the island of Guam could make the island capsize. Seriously?!?!? You just can’t make this crap up!            

Welcome to Life

Yes, this is silly and it’s intended to be, but it has some serious implications.  Just imagine if we can do this a few decades in the future, especially if modern day trends continue as they have in this short video.  Is this really where we want to be? And no, I have no interest […]
