Default This Clown Spends 50,000 Bucks a Year on MouseTraps

Thanks Dien,

I bought a Mouse Trap from The Link Below this Guys video.

Cheaper than a cat.

And Since Coyotes are eating Cats and Dogs where I Live in Northern MD.
I decided to Trap some mice.

1.5 Million Youtube Subscribers!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pHwvVPT202Y

THE
TRUE
MARK of Success?

Some Chinese THIEVES got 4 Million Views on Facebook (Facebook Ignored His Complaints) By STEALING his Exact Mouse Video.

And There might be Some FAKE Auctions at Amazon.com

Although amazon Takes them down over and over.

A Fun way to Make Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars, right?

On MOUSE MONDAY - he Visits Viewers homes and Restaurants.

Videotapes various Traps Catching RODENTS with Night Vision Photography.

Thanks,
Glenn

Hi Glenn,

That's some mousetrap... pretty impressive!

I've tried a humane mouse trap before. The one I tried, though, could only catch one mouse at a time, and then you had to reset it.

Luckily, I'm not having any mouse problems at the moment. But, a good mouse trap can be a very valuable thing!

About stealing videos...

I know of a recent case (about a week ago) where a guy, who calls himself "Aquachigger," makes videos about metal-detecting.

He has about a million subscribers - which is pretty substantial.

But what he found was that another guy made a "reaction" video to his. That's where the other guy put up "Aquachigger's" video on YouTube, and talked over the top of it, giving his reaction to it.

("Reaction videos" are big on YouTube nowadays...)

Now, the issue was that the other guy had six million followers... So he actually had a bigger channel than "Aquachigger," who made the original video he was using.

What happened was that YouTube gave "Aquachigger" the opportunity to say whether the reaction video guy was violating his copyright...

And "Aquachigger" replied - "Yes, this guy is violating my copyright, so YouTube, take down the video."

YouTube then approached the reaction video guy, who denied he had copied the video. (To further "mask" that he took the video, he had "flipped" it horizontally, so the left side of the video was on the right, and vice versa.)

The reaction guy, remember, had 6 million subscribers (compared to "Aquachigger's" 1 million).

If a human decided this, there would be no issue. But nowadays, these things are judged by a computer program.

Given the conflict of claims, it seems YouTube "believes" the one with the most subscribers.

YouTube then went to back to "Aquachigger" and said, you're falsely accusing this guy of copyright violation, and you asked us to delete the video under false pretences. Unless you withdraw your claim, we're going to delete your channel.

That's even though his was the original video and the other guy had taken his video, and talked over the top of it!

Anyway, "Aquachigger" was in danger of losing his channel because someone else had stolen his video and denied that they had stolen it... and because this other guy had a lot more subscribers, YouTube had automatically decided that the other guy was the one telling the truth.

Anyway, in the end, it resolved itself and "Aquachigger" luckily got to save his channel.

You can see his video about it here...

Aquachiggers Youtube Termination Notice : Someone Stole My Videos And Youtube Is Terminating Me!


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uuF5k4QB_zg

and here after it was resolved...

Aquachigger's YouTube Termination Threat Resolved


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fb3vgNQos1c

What happened to the channel of the guy who "stole" the video?

While his reaction video is gone, the channel is still there... 6 million subscribers is big bucks to YouTube!

Thought it might be of interest!

Best wishes,

Dien

Lightbulb How Picasso Got Record as Artist with the Most Artwork Stolen

Before I explain further, thanks Glenn for the inspiration!

You may say all you want about Pablo Picasso's flaws as a human, but you can't honestly say that he wasn't PRODUCTIVE (in literally every sense of that word!)

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, Picasso created:

- 13,500 paintings and designs
- 100,000 prints and engravings
- 34,000 book illustrations, and
- 300 sculptures and ceramics.

No other artist in the written history of man has been that prolific.

Of course, with the sheer volume of material Picasso put out, it's no wonder that thieves and ne'er-do-wells picked interest, looking for easy moolah. In 2012 the Art Loss Register listed over 1,140 works of his that were either stolen, missing or in dispute.

However, contrary to popular belief, Picasso's productivity didn't come from his being "special" or just sitting around waiting for "the muse" to kiss him

Picasso had a METHOD that worked.

Not many people know that Picasso was a strong believer in ACTION PLANS.

He even said:

“Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success.”
– Pablo Picasso

Hope this helps you

Thanks for reading

Hi Glenn,

I love your "celebrity" stuff...

I have no doubt that what you say is true!

There are many ways to namedrop celebrities, ethically and legally. You just have to tell a story about them which is true...

And of course, being celebrities, there are a million and one true stories about every celebrity out there...

So there's no doubt you can find a celebrity story you can use for your purposes...

I'm going to try it a bit more too, because I think it's kind of fun as well. Why not?

Thanks again, Glenn - it's pretty amazing stuff!

And as usual, I really, really love your work.

I highly recommend that anybody who likes Glenn's stuff get on his email list, because it's definitely one of my favorite email lists that I'm on.

As to your question, "Can You GUESS which Headline got 800% more Views?"

I'll probably be wrong, but I'm gonna guess the first one:

'Johnny Depp Says, “I Know I Have a HIT when Movie Directors Scream, “What is Wrong with You?”'



Cheers,

Dien
