    I'd go as far as saying that some authorities are cults. The government isn't above mind control and society isn't reliable and what's normal is nothing but culturally enforced that's why different countries has different types of "normal". If that's the case than what is the natural objective normal? If humans were to choose what is "normal" I'd rather do it myself with my own understanding of the world instead of waiting for authority or cults to show me what they consider normal.

    I know all too well all about the infinite loops of bureaucracy and the airline's hesitancy to let people board without documentation. My wallet, containing my ID, was stolen while I was on holidays last Christmas. A family member who'd had a similar situation in the past suggested that I call the police to get an official file number, which I did. I got to the airport a few hours early and talked to the airline, who said a file number wasn't enough and that they needed a printed file. They suggested I visit the police office at the airport, but that was actually a different police force from the one where I reported my wallet stolen, so they couldn't view/print the file. I called the correct police force from the airport (with the airline rep present), and they said they wouldn't print the file-and actually I shouldn't have been given my police file number in the first place!-because they had no way to verify my claims of my wallet being stolen, due to the fact I hadn't made an official statement yet. Logically I then asked them how I could make an official statement. Apparently, an official statement can only be made in person at the police station, WITH VALID ID, but the reason I needed a file in the first place was that I didn’t have ID! Eventually the airline realised the absurdity of the situation and accepted what I'd been saying all along, that it was next to impossible that someone who had (A) the ticket and luggage tag from the departing flight, (B) the mobile device used to check in to both flights, (C) a police file number, and (D) a photo of the main page of my passport could've been anyone but me, so they sent word to the gate and let me on the flight. (I won't name the airline because I don't want them to get in trouble.) At least it didn't take 18 years to get me back home!

    At 4:51 he says the vowel is fronted. It's technically the on-glide that's fronted. But the symbol circled is incorrect because it represents the unrounded back closed vowel. It is just as far back as the /u/ sound but is unrounded. The actual vowel in the on-glide as he pronounced was a closed rounded central-back vowel.

    America likely has war plans for literally every nation. I mean seriously our generals basically have nothing to do. Every conflict in the middle east for some reason we don't take seriously and stretch it out for 15 years so our top generals kinda just sit there and wonder what to do. There's a good chance that they have created war plans for even the very low chance of a NATO nation going Communist or something. I wouldn't be surprised if there's even a war plan against closely linked nations like Japan and Canada.

    it's probably already been mentioned, but the graphic for the /u/ fronting circles the /ɯ/ which is a roudned vowel. a fronted /u/ would be /ʉ/, or by your pronunciation to a /ɤw/ diphthong which England English does a bit with the /ow/ diphthong.
