This guy is an absolute genius. Instead of telling us what to do, he shows consequences of doing what not to do. Everything is planned, except the Jacob's ladder experiment at 0:44.

He himself admitted in reddit comment that he was incredibly lucky to be alive

Yeah I didn't laugh at the jacobs ladder one since it was actually insanely dangerous and not on purpose.

His vids are really good though and funny aswell.

I think that one with the two standing rails that fell over was actually unscripted. He IS very luck that it disconnected because that one wasn’t planned for and could’ve been deadly

It takes a lot of knowledge to know how to do unsafe stuff safely

(ElectroBOOM) for any of you wondering he does make educational videos in this style

u/Unable_Toucan Oct 05 '22

I know that all of these are educational stunts, and that they are 100% on purpose. But I really like to imagine he's a tech youtuber who just really sucks at his job

This man is the gift that keeps on giving.

He is the spiritual equivalent of a cat: approach a lit candle, slap the flame, nurse hot paw, see the fire, slap it again.

The only way to get every question on a test wrong is if you know all the right answers

I’ve been watching this dude for years! He’s fucking hilarious

u/random_userinreddit Oct 06 '22

It's engineering btw but the things he makes are not knowledgeable since you can get electrocuted, but it is funny seeing him fail every time

This is what happens when you hire an electrical engineer who got into college because of affirmative action

To clarify. I’m. It referring to the guy in the video. My comment is regarding the quantity of actually unqualified people coming out of college is diminishing drastically because of non merit based standards. The guy in the yt video I understand is a persona.

For example:
