    this is the guy that would most likely survive if he was on a passenger airliner that went down over a deserted tropical island with magical properties, owned by a shady government organization.

      John Jack Hey, it might not make it to #1 on trending but I think folk as passionate about this as you are wouldn’t mind the delivery at all. I have some guys I watch regularly and they are not super dynamic folk but the content is gold! If you ever want to make these videos I would love them!

    • Psi34ax says:

      John Jack Go for it. If you aren’t comfortable speaking just fold on screen with some text explaining what you’re doing. Best
