It's not technically a "Whatever Thing", but it feels rather like the heir apparent to the WT.

I'll likely do more of these, dependent on if I have have and am bored. Might get other people involved too. Like, say, if Matt's home at the time.

Hope you like it.

*Dies* Loved it!

Graham you HAVE to do more of these. And considering that you're far more reliable than Morgan-the-lazy-wanker, I wouldn't get sucked in only to be disappointed by infrequent updates.

That was hella cool! It's whateverish, but also reminiscent of Ze Franks unfortunately discontinued daily podcast. Can't quite figure out why this would be containing even minute amounts of fail (or any phallic variance thereof).

Also, that weird story about naked germans on a plane (and shpa! that titles' been registered by Paramount pictures) actually has a lot more depth to it. See, Germany wasn't always as united as it is now. After losing a conflict about world domination in the mid-40s, everybody wanted a piece of this beautiful country. And while everyone else was happily sharing with everyone else, the soviet union had a wall built smack down the middle. Beyond that wall lay Berlin, our nations beloved capital, as well as Saxony, our nations Welsh. Saxons are a weird little bunch and interestingly, the government of the GDR catered to their needs for - among other things - nudism. Yes, Holidays in the buff were all the rage back then, with people even being naked on the bus to and from the destination. Since 1989 however, the wall is no more, and the same goes for the division. People in West Germany weren't too happy at first, since their eastern neighbors were almost bankrupt at that time, and a lot of money had to be spent to fix what the russians had left in their wake. Surprisingly, even though their standard of living has gone sky-high, some saxons still decry the fall of the separating wall, and wish it were put back up so they could enjoy the simple life of a totalitarian rule once again. It will be these exact people you'll also find spending 500 quid to fly naked for one hour.

Darn, now i went ahead and gave a sermon...

It reminds me of a subtle blend of the Whatever thing, idiot room and the viral video vroundup you did. All of which are awesome. But yeah, definitely grab someone else. You carried it well solo, but that wouldn't work over a while I think.

Please be considering doing this for a while!

Nice phone though. The video was pretty good. I'm just wary that this may get hopes up.

But for now, blind faith is all i got. So yeah it was awesome.

So I started watching this video, and about three minutes through I had a mental breakdown. I had realized, that it was Friday, and you had said that the new videos were on Wednesday. So, there I am, thinking "Oh shit, they lied" but then I realized "Oh shit, this is a new kinda whatever thing, yay" and then I lol'd for the rest of the video

TL;DR

WORD OF THE DAY IS BACK!!

Seriously, I'm too excited over that. It's like a small part of the Idiot Room has weaseled its way back into my life, and I welcome it with open arms.

Graham, please continue these. :)

I sense much win in this.

Win leads to win, which leads to more win.

I agree with secretly filming Morgan and cutting him in at some point, though.

Yes, I have ZERO graphics skills.
(does it show?)

Kudos on the vid, Graham! I'm surprised you never thought to use the cell phone to do a vid before now.

Is a Cloverfield parody not far behind? :)

So, I was watching the video, grooving out on its funky beats, when this happens:

[Graham]: "You see, it's been very well documented that Death plus Taxes equals x squared..."

That's 2x, Graham. Two X. Not x-squared, which is entirely different.

You really did skip grade 12 math. (Is grade 12 not senior year for Canadians?)

gr 12 is our senior year, but math 12 is optional, so you really only need to take it if the university/program you're applying for wants it.

And Math 12 isn't calculus?

Grade 12 math was either calculus or data management, for me.

Calculus for me, which was 100% not a good choice...

Critiquing the video itself:

The content was excellent, but something did seem to be missing. The effect of bouncing back and forth between two people is fantastic. As good as Graham is, and as funny as his content was, bouncing between himself and himself just wasn't the same.

I vote for trying to dragoon someone else into doing this with you, Graham, if you want to make Phailhaüs totally win.

Of course, that's kind of the opposite of its explicit point... hmm.

In my school its either calculus, statistical analysis or advanced functions. there's also the basic college level math that I took due to bad prerequisites, which is basically 11th grade uni math.

the video was totally rad though, I really really really hope you make more.
