Hi, I'm Tom Scott. These are some of the things I've made and done. They'll probably come back to haunt me in a few years' time.

    In the future, I hope AI is advanced enough to self-generate a film or TV series that's completely based on the inputs of a human. example, I could feed it the original script of Alien (which differs from the movie) and it would make a movie out of it (and we wouldn't know the difference) Another example is "what if" series. Like Hulk vs superman, and it would make an actual movie of it.

    Here's some things I don't think they accounted for (as someone who works around hgvs): The white noise is a horrible sound to a lot of people, so the reversing horn gets disabled alot more. Because its a more natural sound it can sound like a lot of things, something scraping, or a pneumatic tool, it blends in. Lastly everyone knows the beeping is a vehicle reversing, not many know about this new sound even this long after it changed.

    In India we are using electronic voting machines for more than a decade and still there is no voter fraud allegations here... I guess its partly because of the trust we have to the election commission which is independent form the government.

    A whole video about bottled water, and not even a mention that there might be ethical considerations to all of this too? The idea that companies can take water from what should be a public source and using it to extort money from people who need water to, you know, live... it's not a huge issue in the UK because the UK has soooo much water anyway, but even so, there are some huge issues in the industry at large, which I would've liked to see mentioned rather than a somewhat... nostalgic reminiscing about a brand opportunity lost?

    Maybe they should just separate the bike road from the main road right there, and give it a crossing a little bit down the road, where the cyclists can reasonably be expected to have a good view of the traffic... or even a separate bike/pedestrian bridge.
