Unfortunately ExtantDodo's account has been suspended. CSE is suspected as the culprit behind the suspension. I'd keep watching the account, though, for when he comes back if you haven't yet seen his videos.

HonestDiscussioner's first effort is ok, but I found it highly annoying that he felt the need to use a different graphic/image for nearly every word.

I thought it was fine.  If every video did that, yes, it would get old quick.  They don't, so an occasional one like that is interesting.

Agreed.  If there was an illegal DMCA filed that caused him to get his account suspended, I hope that he has them put in jail for it.  Enough with this BS censorship.  If you can't stand what someone else says enough to allow them to say it, maybe you don't know what you're talking about?  Challenge them with your own words, and if you can't, that's not their fault!

What video?  He's usually clever and informative, but not big on satire ala. "a modest proposal".

I doubt that he thinks platetectonics is hooey.

It's a satire.  The first image is a magazine cover ... from The Onion.

The Onion is hilarious, satire at its finest.

The useless "insert Flash" button is right next to the "YouTube" button.  I've done it, but I usually catch it!  :)

The Onion is good ... sometimes I laugh for 5 minutes and retell the story to someone else weeks or months later.  They have a daily podcast that is short and can be quite good, though the longer printed stories usually are superior.

A *very* quick review shows no indication that he's a theist or an atheist.  Help?

He's basically an agnostic atheist, I like him more for his views on race relations.

Yeah, cdk007's okay with statistics, too. I try to avoid most of the political stuff on YouTube, as I'm not convinced that my understanding of American politics would be improved greatly by watching the bits of it that have been filtered through the brains of the average American YouTube user.
