    have you ever wondered if this secret company bought giant amounts of data from 10000s of companies with as many people as they could, and gave it to an extremely complex algorithm; neural networks, etc etc. and it took all this data and outputted a single sentence that everyone on the planet would agree with... something no one would object to..

    What defines Tom Scott? The cars whizzing by noisily as people go to work or the store brings back a certain nostalgia, an interrupting backdrop to the presentation of trivia that is interesting only because of who is explaining it. However, at its root, the essence of Tom Scott is a humble and yet unapologetic reminder that, no matter how much knowledge, wealth, or power you may acquire, there is no person in this world who is more full of joy than the ignorant child who ponders the mysteries of the worms and bugs under a mossy log.

    Tom, I had the same thing happen that you mention at 24:46. A Chinese TV station produced a one hour show and they used my video without consent in their show. They then uploaded it to youtube. Content ID then sent me a notice that I was was using their video! It took about 3 weeks to get it all straightened out. I immediately counteracted their claim the same day by sending in a "copyright infringement takedown" claim form that youtube has online. Their TV video on youtube was removed by the Chinese TV company right away. In the end, I still had to wait for the Chinese TV company to release the copyright dispute they started, to get back to normal. The system did get it wrong but it does work in the end.
