Real life is harmfulTuesday, January 18, 2011 at 16:48 | Posted in internet, life | Leave a comment

Related to a discussion about winter weather and road conditions, I searched up a post in this blog a few years back. Embedded in the post is a YouTube video about slippery road conditions in Seattle. The video shows cars bumping into each other as drivers in Seattle are not accustomed to snow and ice on the streets and accordingly have no idea of the appropriate usage of winter tires.
As I tried to watch the video I was encountered with this screen, much to my amazement:
Come on, YouTube! Consequences of human behaviour are often harmful and driving on an icy street without proper tires can certainly have harmful effects but I am buffed to learn that YouTube has a policy of banning coverage of real life situations as they may occur. They obviously have a lot of censoring to be done to turn 100 % of the content into harmless fairy tale with no connection to real life.
Oh, and while I am at it, how harmful is the activity depicted in this clip, so far unbanned and watched by more than 100.000 times? I am adding a screan capture just in case the clip gets removed.
