    Asapscience ! Stop making videos or tell us some real science.
    Answer the question: is the World flat ?
    I bet you won't even dare to touch that subject because you are so controlled by the mainstream.
    Although shut Up about Nordvpn being safe. IT is owned by the elite in the end so they just use that service to spy on you also. Don't be fooled people. These guys don't even tell real Science but mostly just pseudo Sciences which they have just Googled.
    Everyone that still thinks the World is a globe should not be listened to. Because these people have not broken their indoktrination yet, and all they say is just repeated information with no independent thoughts behind it.

    Truly shameful, you make a one sided propaganda like video on your privacy and technology,that shows only the worst aspects of the situation and makes things look as bleak as possible (some of these things happen to pretty much every one but some of them are complicated, look bad on companies, and aren’t worth the effort. So they are very unlikely of happening to you); only to turn around and sell us your sponsor who sells internet protection services. I really did used to love this channel and I’ve been here for a long long time and It really breaks my heart acknowledge the fact that I’m not willing to put my name by this channel and say that I support it any more.

    Yeah, this video ain't fake. One time me and my family were going to like the grocery store, it's not really important. I did NOT bring my phone because I don't have one. I have a tablet which I did not bring. I bring nothing. When we came home, I look on my tablet, and surprise surprise, there were adds for that store And stores around it.

    My dinosaur flip phone is actually always off. I don't think that's quite as easy to track. But even that doesn't keep us safe. And the Privacy Policy detail? See the South Park episode "Human centIPAD". Anyway, all these damn legal things that nobody reads, on a more serious note...I wish they could be completely done away with, because as Kyle from South Park points out, "Who in all existence has the STOMACH to go through all that shit?!" I know from experience the one or two times I tried, the way it was worded made it feel like I'd have to sell my soul just to even use the goods and services being offered. And this is why people joke about how lawyers are an evil profession.
    On top of that, this is why I really, REALLY want an all-wired network!
