Maybe one of these cat lovers is making a monthly donation, or has donated at least once to the EEVBlog.
Maybe one of these smokers is making a monthly donation, or has donated at least once  to the EEVBlog.
Maybe they are buying on Amazon using the EEVBlog link, maybe they bought the uCurrent or some other stuff and more....
Don't care attitude from Dave has to be reviewed.

Well.  This is not a cheer-ocracy, Dave is the cheer-tator, and dave will make the cheer-isions around here, and dave will deal with the cheer-onsequences.

But mentions of cats, 9/11 "inside job", and tinfoil hats stuff will get you down voted.

Personally - I could care less what Dave believes in.  Flying saucers took out the WTC?  What ever. It's almost funny.   I'm here for the knowledge.  I knew Dave was a freak from the get go.... :-DD  A really smart freak.

I liked the 'special guest' on this video.
Especially, it was fun to watch Sagan's expression (of the kind: :-//)  around 7:25 when daddy showed that a box in the middle of that goodness was empty  :-+

Hi Dave,

In the last few months I watched all your videos, They are brilliant and Its a privilege to watch them. Many thanks.

There are many positive things to say about this one, #460, but it also triggers a lot of negative emotions, by far the most of all your videos.

-Seeing Sagan standing on a 1m high bench worry's me and gives me a bad feeling.
-The proximity of Sagan's Hand to your knife when you open one of the boxes almost made me mad.

I'm sure many of your viewers who are daddy's like myself will at least partly feel the same.

-The poking with a screw driver on the video card also annoyed me. I related to the soul that send you this and probably loved that card when it was part of his PC. He must have been very disappointed...I now I would be.

Consider it feedback. I hope you do not take this the wrong way.

Further more as to why so many thumbs down ?
A lot of your viewer are smokers, love cats and Gods.
Maybe something to keep in mind when you edit, I see humor in the remarks, many may not.


Kind regards,

Eric

I don't think 9/11 was an inside job. The US government couldn't piss up a flag pole without screwing it up.
One comment I made on 9/11 once has been blown out of proportion.
What tinfoil hat stuff do I believe in?

Your problem.
I know what I'm doing. Sagan was in absolutely no danger.

There was absolutely no damage to the card, so any people crying over that are just being silly.

I wasn't gonna post but it's driving me mad all the negative comments.

The people making the negative comments are what's wrong with kids today.

All the don't touch anti-bacteria anti-viral anti-outside treatment is
what's wrong.

When I was young you got a cold there wasn't any trip to the doctor
for anti- biotics(which don't work any way).
You just ride it out.

As a child we went outside and played I've been cut,skinned up,
bit by snakes,spiders, stung by
wasp,bees and I'm fine.

Parents would slap a band-aid on it
and send back out into the wild.
Go back outside and play.


I haven't been sick with anything
but one cold in the last 8 to 10 years.
I attribute that to not being codled as a child.

I was probably 8 when my grandfather fave me my first knife.
Only words I remember hearing where don't cut yourself.

No learning institution will ever be able to compete with experience and time far better teachers.

What a bad f*&@#$ing way to answer to somebody's comment, I know is your video, I know is your forum, I know is your stuff. But I still think is the wrong way to confront the situation.

And maybe this will not apply to you nor you care about it, but companies get in trouble because they do not listen to customer or they are arrogant, kind of you are doing here.

Daves area, Daves  blog and Daves rules. plus his son, and he is looking out for him. I broke plenty of stuff when young, and played in the river ( bilharzia......) along with playing in the bush, up trees ( and syringias to boot, poisonous as well as incredibly weak) and all over. No broken bones, never got bitten by the black mambas in the bottom of the yard, had dogs, cats, pigeons and other assorted animals. Only broke bones later on.........

Dave is a murdering, careless, negligent, cold hearted, blind, idiotic, uneducated, low IQ, apish moron. Only fish demonstrate less concern for their spawn.  :-DD

From what I saw, Dave is a caring, loving and intelligent person who wants his son to not be afraid of the shadows.

Lighten up people! If you really have that little respect for Dave's intelligence, go away!

Dave - if you have daddy day care day, please keep pictures to yourself. I agree with those people who see that EEVblog is for technical stuff. Kid is ok, i may have been this way his age but IMO things just do not add up.

One of the YouTube commenters expressed the same sentiments.   Dave replied it was a video with Sagan, or none at all.   The commenter replied that he or she would prefer no video.

That doesn't make any sense.   If you don't want to watch, then don't - it will be exactly as if Dave hadn't made it.   Those who don't mind can watch and enjoy.

I found Sagan distracting in this video, so I stopped watching it and gave it a thumbs down. Easy.

Which falls into the "If I don't like it no one should see,say or do it.
(Sorry one of my biggest pet peeves.)
To many people have to much control over what other people do in their lives when it doesn't even concern them.


I run heavy equipment for a living.

Many times I've took my daughters with me they loved riding on the bulldozers and excavators.
Safe maybe not to you not your choice mine,if something happened totaly my fault not yours.

I have my opinions and I have no prob voicing them.
Let me show you.
9/11 us gov didn't cause it but they knew about it.
They let it happen so they could start all this homeland security crap.
Start whitleing away at our freedoms.
Religion one of the three
biggest hypocrites on the planet.
Main reason colonist came to the Americas to escape church rule and religious persecution.


NOW WHERE'S MY TINFOIL HAT.

I skipped through the video (looking for the plasma speaker) as the Sagan parts didn't interest me, but didn't give it a thumbs up or down.

Will I watch more of Dave's videos?  Yes, of course.  Will I skip though some of them?  More than likely if the content (Sagan, technical or other) doesn't interest me.  It's pretty simple; if you don't like the content, skip or stop the video.

By the way, I'm sure Sagan was perfectly safe up on the bench and the camera would have been quickly dropped if he was about to come to any harm.   :)

That didn't take long.
You missed my point.
Maybe I used a bad example but
it's all about opinions and everyones need to force theirs on someone else if they aren't the same as yours.

It comes back to if your not living the way I think you should be then its wrong and it needs to be changed.

Everyone needs to grow up and stop trying to control everyone else.

As far as Sagan is concerned I'm glad to see someone trying to include their child in their life.
Not just putting them in daycare,
a playpen or something and forgetting about them till whatever they are doing is done.

Maybe I'm to old to rap my head around not taking responsibility for my own life and letting
someone else tell me how I should live.

It is a truthful and direct way to answer someone's comment.
The poster was simply wrong, Sagan was in no danger at all, the issue lies entirely with the posters thinking.
I gave as good as I got.
You want to tell me how to raise, protect, and care for my own child? - without being there and knowing the situation first hand. That's the response you'll get.

No, it comes from making 500 videos and reading tens of thousands of comments.

If we're talking about likes and dislikes in the video, I will throw in my 2-cents. 

I *knew* people were going to complain about the kid having a sharp object in his hands, or banging stuff with the screwdriver, or standing on the packages, etc.  But it's Dave's kid and he can raise him as he likes and I was not going to jump to the same conclusions others were that the kid was in danger.  But as soon as I saw the screwdriver, I knew a lot of whining was coming :)

Regarding kids in videos... I am not a huge fan of children... they are universally 0.00001% as interesting as their parents think they are, so I tried to skip over the kid parts, but they were pretty constant so I ended up skipping much of the video.  Didn't offend me, just wasn't interesting.

The only thing I thought was a bit of a low blow was bashing the smoker guy.  He took the time and spent good money to send those parts... I think after the first comment (after sniffing the letter) it was enough and the subject should be dropped after.  Dave - you seem to have gotten slightly defensive when someone suggested you were making a mistake in how you parent your child.  Of course, anyone would be offended when someone preaches to them about how they should live their life.  But that's precisely what I thought was kind of shitty in this video... nobody wants to hear anti-smoking preaching either and my initial reaction was similar to your reaction when someone told you how to handle your kid :)

I agree that someone will always of offended no matter what you do - and I love the "no BS" attitude of the blog - *as it relates to electronics*.  If a piece of equipment is crap, I like to know that... if a new PIC chip lacks an obvious feature, I want to know.  But if I want to listen to no-BS opinions about health, religion or parenting, I would go elsewhere.  It turns me off on the blog.

(and I say that as someone who is probably infinitely less religious than Dave, and I HATE cats and don't smoke!) :)
It's not always the most popular person who gets the job done.

Ah, I see controversy in here!

Just wanted to tell you, that this was the only and very fist episode I ever showed to my girlfriend.

There were two reasons for that:
 
First. I wanted to show her, that a child can survive in a lab enviroment without poking its eye out with the very first screwdriver.  :scared: At first, she could not believe that someone would put such a dangerous tool in the hands of a child, but when she saw Segan measuring the parcel on its own she was sold. She saw that under the eyes of a lovecaring parent this can actually work - I am sure she never saw something like that before. Thanks you for calming my girl down, making my future a bit easier!  ^-^


second reason: I was so very impressed with your reaction when Segan wanted to put the screwdriver in the cam - all the time - just like you were doing it:
"Thank you, Segan!"
"Thank you Segan!"
"Thank you segan"


Other parents would have already shouted at their child, "NO!", "NO!", "STOP IT!!" countless times.  :palm:

Your "Thank you" were so very impressive and they show that there are just top quality solderjoints in that relation! :-+

She liked Segan's Chubby feet btw.
