Hi! I'm yet another one of those pesky skeptics who make Youtube videos pointing out that other people are wrong. Yeah, I know, I know, there's a million of those, but there's a reason for it: there are far too many people out there who, due to either dishonesty or stupidity (or both!), are actively working to harm science, and make sure the next generation is even dumber than the current one. I'm doing my part by educating kids in my professional life, and by making videos in my spare time. 

Because making high quality videos involves some expenses, and I want the quality of my videos to improve, AND because I haven't chosen a career that involves swimming in cash, any donations will be greatly appreciated.

Anyone who donates will be given access to unlisted videos, including behind-the-scenes material and bloopers, as they become available. Don't expect much of this. Mainly, you're just awesome.

Make a request! I will respond to a "normal-length" video or article of your choice, provided that my knowledge of the relevant subjects is sufficient. By "normal-length", I mean... well, you know, not a feature film or book, but a blog article or a typical Youtube video. If it's too long, or deals with subjects that require me to do what I consider an unreasonable amount of research, you get to pick something else, of course. I am obligated to make a video for YOU, and you will be credited in the video (unless you don't want to, of course). Unfortunately, I cannot guarantee that your request will be met in a timely manner. Please remember that making videos takes quite a bit of time, and my time is limited.

Of course, you also get access to unlisted videos, as mentioned above.

In addition to everything above, you get an hour of my time for a Skype video conversation, Google hangout, or similar, that you are free to upload or broadcast live (duh, in the case of hangout...). You'll be responsible for conversation topics. 

PLUS, the request you make (see above) can be for a larger piece, or something that requires me to do more research (still subject to what is reasonable, given the time I have available). Some topics I simply will not address, however, as they may spark "drama" (I don't do politics, for example). Also keep in mind that when responding to a feature film, the opposition will tend to be more DMCA happy, so that will affect the type of response I can make.
Goals
$163 of $500 per video
With this kind of money, I could look into properly upgrading my computer (i.e. getting a new one!) and getting a better camera within a reasonable time frame.
