    Youtube: _Demonetized_

    • RageBasterd says:

      @che3se1495 you can still get ads when its demonetized, although most wont, the create just doesn’t get paid.

    • The other John Smith says:

      Youtube would have to demonitize loads of gardening videos, too.

    • Gavin Tantleff says:

      RageBasterd they do get paid, but a lot less, because as an advertiser you choose if it shows up on demonetized videos or not

    • Thomas Horne says:

      @RageBasterd that’s videos that have been copyright claimed not demonetized ones

    • che3se1495 says:

      ​@Gavin Tantleff You guys are confusing content claimed videos, demonetized videos and restricted advertising videos.

      Content claimed videos are ones where ads can show but when they do some or all of the money goes to the person who made the claim rather than the youtuber.

      Demonetized videos show no ads and no one makes any money.

      Restricted advertising videos only show certain ads or may not show ads in certain countries or to certain age groups. These Ads normally pay less and reach fewer people, leading to less money made.

    It’s so empty. When I was in nyc, the airport was full even in night.

  3. Piet Van Vliet says:

    Me: I sometimes wonder why Grey’s video’s are spaced so far apart.
    Grey: Let me show you.

  4. Mary Howerton says:

    I go to school here and walk by this building nearly every day 😂 all of the jokes are made about this building’s name. Hope you liked CSU/ FoCo!

  5. Brandon James says:

    All these researchers every day in Colorado: 😐 no, not that kind of weed.

  6. Gaudencio Manaloto says:

    Me earlier into the vid: “That’s strange, you’d think these serious researchers wouldn’t use the informal term “weed” when naming their facility.”

    Then it turns out they’re not researching Cannabis lol

  7. phoenix ma says:

    everyone: yooooooooo cannabis!

    grey: uh no, tumbleweed

  8. Mr. King Man says:

    The fact that they seem to simultaneously love and despise tumbleweeds is amusing

    • CJ Pedroza - Broke Dude Startup says:

      You can hate something and still be fascinated by it. Like I hate Jeff Bezos and Donald Trump, but I’m still fascinated by how their businesses work and how they became successful.

    • Ichijo Festival says:

      Sort of like the velociraptors in Jurassic Park (1).

      “Clever girl.”

      Gene borrowing: the scientific version of “if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em!”

  9. Justin Baker says:

    Considering today’s date, I thought this was going to be very different.

  10. Roshan Halappanavar says:

    “weed research” , “colorado”, released on 4/20. Yep I totally fell for that clickbait title but i’m not mad at all.. It’s a CGP grey video.. what am i gonna do? NOT watch it?

    • Jake says:

      Unfortunately your correct

    • Phil A. says:

      @Jake *you’re. It’s a contraction of “you are”.

    • Zlatan Ibrahimovic says:

      Phil A. Get over it.

    • Nick Schell says:

      Phil A. Stop being a professor

    • BuzzinsPetRock78 says:

      @Zlatan Ibrahimovic Get over what? He’s trying to help someone improve their English, how is that a bad thing? You might read it as being negative, but that is your own interpretation, as there are no negative words in that sentence.
      I for one wouldn’t mind at all if someone helped me when I made these simple kind of mistakes. In case it wasn’t clear, I’m not a native English speaker. Please don’t always assume something is meant in a bad way, trust me, it will make your life easier…..even if you sometimes get proved wrong 🙂

  11. DeviilReaper says:

    Everyone: “Ya weed video on 20/4/20!”

    CGP Grey: “Tumbleweeds”

  12. Manoletomol says:

    me and the boys after becoming weed scientist

  13. Scrupulous Scrumptious says:

    Wow, a title with “weed” and “Colorado” uploaded on 4/20? You know how to market a video…

  14. James Burtton says:

    I got really nostalgic seeing Grey take a train and a plane. It’s something that was so normal but now seems so alien.

  15. Rie Ta says:

    8:25 Think globally, think financially.

    I grew to like this American mentality a lot. Hope the research succeeds.

    In an extreme way, we might be able to turn parts of deserts into farm fields and thus stop the expansion of them. And provide jobs in new areas. Or maybe reduce the usage of pesticide by locating the plants to areas where bugs and mold are less likely to infest the plants. Less pesticide might lead to a lowered food price. And lowered food prices are good ^^

  16. Jordan says:

    3:15 The guy’s so proud of his work and happy he has someone to share it with : )

  17. ya a says:

    “(…) baggages unattended will be destroyed.”
    Well damn, that went from 0 to 100 quite fast.

    • TheFeldhamster says:

      Has been the normal procedure at airports even before 9/11.

    • Josh Thornberg says:

      Even if it’s not a bomb or anything dangerous nobody wants your dirty baggage lmao “get that shit outta here!”

    • Muzer0 says:

      The IRA was no joke, and thanks to 9/11 and the small trickle of domestic terrorist attacks in the UK nobody wants to be the politician to remove all the scary messages that were put in back when the IRA were still relevant…

    • BuzzinsPetRock78 says:

      @Charles Lambert Yes, they do that now….I remember from eh…well, a long-ish time ago, there were no bins anywhere. They were deemed too dangerous. It’s annoying if you don’t know this as a tourist and you want to throw away an empty cola bottle. I walked around with it for hours 😐
      It’s not just in the UK where they tend to destroy unattended baggage, but here (NL) it’s not made quite this clear 😛

    • Jesse Sherman says:

      “Baggages unattended will be cast into the outer darkness where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth”

  18. Kory Mulcahey says:

    Grey: “I’m going to post a video about types of weed, filmed in Denver, on 4/20; surely there will be no misunderstanding.”

    • Ben L says:

      “And i will put the term weed into the title without specifying which kind of weeds, nor will i show it in the thumbnail”

  19. Daniel says:

    The whole world
    Is getting to me
    There’s just no trust
    No tegridy.

    So I loaded up the kids
    Took my wife by the arm,
    And I moved on out
    To a Colorado Weed Research Facility
