    Neat stuff coming lately Captain D! I do miss the good ol' videos with simple debunking, though. I know a lot of it's been done before and that's why there's no reason to repeat the same content, but what do you think about this video? Even having seen each episode of yours, I can't for the life of me track out a path of string or area to be manipulating from, and the complexity and dimensions of the objects look hard to do with VFX. I'd love to see your take on it.

    Hi Cap'n D.
    Love your channel and your sense of humour. I actually binge watched all of your videos the weekend I discovered it.

    I just saw on my local current affairs TV prog, a video of a guy that can catch an apple in his mouth.
    It looks pretty real and in one instance pieces fly off the apple when he catches it.
    I'm sooo hoping it's fake and I hope you can prove it.
    Cheers from Australia,

    I have just discovered you channel, because of a YouTube recommendation. I have enjoyed every single video in the debunked and Quick D playlists. Your amazing style really makes the videos as enjoyable as they are. I'll remain a perma sub (for as long as Google [TM] doesn't change the algorithm). May your amazing style and identity last forever on in the site we call YouTube. I have, but one question: Why is 'Linus Tech Tips' a related channel? Screenshot of your discussion page (in Dutch) were Linus Tech Tips was a related channel ->

    I've gotta say, I can't believe Captain D doesn't have, like, all the subscribers. The production values are consistently phenomenal. (I have no idea how YouTube personalities make money, but presumably the Cap'n has a sweet day job to pay the bills, hone his craft, and fund his expensive toys.) More importantly, I find the subject material for his videos interesting. He has a consistent and unwavering morality, (which I happen to agree with) and the videos are appropriate for me to watch with my kids. (Who find them every bit as fascinating as I do.) Thanks CaptainDisillusion, and keep up the good work!

    Greetings kind Sir. Love the show. I was wondering , there was a video of this guy playing baseball and hits the baseball at these trampolines and it bounces The ball back and forth until it comes back at him. It doesn't look like that would have enough inertia for the ball to make it all the way back to him, but I don't know for sure. What do you think?

    You know what I would love to see? Is a video explaining to people that all of the "nice animals that do wonderful things for others animals out of the kindness of their hearts" are actually trained to do what they do. Like the dog bringing a carrot to the horse, or dog covering a fish with water with its nose because OMG! the dog magically knows the fish needs water and they're so humane! No, it was trained to keep the fish wet.

    hey cap d, I was thinking that it would be really cool if you started making tutorials, I personally think that it is amazing when you are covering a video and you use the same effect with the same or more quality than the video that you are covering. I think that it would be so interesting to see step by step how this effects can be made. I have learned a lot about vfx thanks to you, and I would love to keep on learning more. Keep it up cap! ^^

    Hey CaptainDillusion, could you do a debunking of the Comet Core "Worlds first floating smartphone"? They are much like the Cicret wearable in that they promised to have their smartphone shipping in the first quarter of 2016 and they still have not even shown what the final version of the phone looks like as of April 2017. In one of their promo videos they show the young CEO standing next to a very expensive sports car, as if this makes him seem to be successful and yet no phone yet. They seem to be running the long con and it would be great if someone like you could debunk and expose them.

    Cap, I just finished watching your QED 2016 video, and I wanted to make sure I took some time to thank you and make sure I did whatever I could to prevent you from ever seriously considering whether you're wasting your time. You're not.

    Clearly you have influenced many who are proponents of truth above all things, in all disciplines, no matter how trivial, and that's tremendously important in an idealogical world. I see people say this in your videos' comments all the time, but it's true: the world needs more heroes like Captain Disillusion.

    On a sidenote: Never been a big fan of YouTube's sub/notification system, but you were spot-on with your viewership theory from the Ostrich video. I don't always have time to keep up with my scheduled doses of CD sanity, but it's always a privilege when I do. Every time something comes up and I'm reminded of your channel, I always make a point to catch up entirely. Seen every video to date and am proud to support you.

    Really looking forward to the new potential behind the Quick D series. The more D the better. Also, I think I can speak on behalf of all your loyal viewers when I say I'll always have a little D in me.

    Much love from my heart,
    - Fellow Brain User
