Tastes like

Restaurant reviews are a dime a dozen on Youtube, but what the world still lacked was a guy going around London chicken shops rating them on wing crispiness, chip consistency, burger buildup and value for money (anything over two pounds fifty is stretching it). Fortunately, now there's Chicken Connoisseur's The Pengest Munch to fill the gap.

Place the oxygen mask on yourself first before assisting others.

Alright sir, if you don't get on oxygen you're going to die. [YT] Destin Sandlin of "Smarter Every Day" goes into a high altitude simulation chamber where he demonstrates why you should definitely, always, put on your own oxygen mask first. The chamber is set to the equivalent of 25,000 feet (7,620 meters) after a slow decompression, which allows 3 to 5 minutes of consciousness. The video points out that "most airliners travel at 35,000 feet" (10,670 meters), and under a real scenario you may get only 15-30 seconds of useful consciousness.

And you could have it all... my empire of flavor...

It's a story of self-destruction, a wrenching reflection at the end of a life lived simultaneously too well and infinitely poorly, a lamentation of the pursuit of one more hit, hoping and fearing that this might be the one that kills you... set to Johnny Cash singing "Hurt".
