I hate literally everything about that video. His delivery, his script, the way he dremeled the SIDES of the loving screw and damaged the housing of the power supply. :(

Alex hooking a PC up to a water tap was some big brain bullshit. So much so Der8auer did it too.

I haven't seen the clip in question, but I'm guessing it's hooking up a watercooling system to a tap and just letting the other end drain away.
A friend and I joked about doing this 20~ years ago. Recirculating hot water is for losers.
We of course never did it, because it would be obscene
Turns out in this day and age you can make good money making videos about things you only joked about

I dunno about Der8auer, but Linus's crew's takeaway was 'this is stupid, but effective', so it was still in the spirit of the joke.

Connect your loop directly to the bath water.

Warm tub water whenever you need it.

The soap will keep the loop clean.

I've always wanted to make coffee with a water cooling loop, but you'll never get the water hot enough without cooking your silicon.

Does this genius think that in countries where handguns arenít legal to own you can just wave a replica around for self defence?

Also I canít imagine being in a position where I felt the need to carry pepper spray and a taser around with me at all times.

Edit: Is the polo shirt and waistcoat combo a gimmick?

I could have been in bed 15 minutes ago, and woken up rested for work tomorrow.

Instead I'm going to be up all night thinking about putting vegemite on a heat spreader.

Oldschool classic PC guy Dan's Data did exactly this in 2002.

Vegemite is an excellent thermal compound, but came 2nd place to toothpaste. And the toothpaste makes your PC smell minty fresh!

Gopros actually make biking footage look much more tame than it is, the wide angle makes everything look much flatter than reality. Also, I don't think he's riding anywhere near his limitations there, he's taking it fairly easy so he can think and talk. If you saw some of the poo poo he likely did off-camera that day you'd probably poo poo yourself.

Mountain biking is cool and good even if you really aren't into downhill.

Probably! I've never done that kind of mountain biking so I didn't know what to expect, there's just some parts where he's on some rickety bridge over a cliffside with no rails and it's like whoa.

This is so true. I'm just a mtb beginner and like to check out footage of trails I'm planning to ride. Reality is always much steeper and scarier than Gopro footage.
