Everyone remembers something scary from their childhood.
Why is that?
Is it because everything seems so big and grown up?
Is it because kids attract have a link to the supernatural?
I don’t know – everyone has their own theory – I can’t explain it – but I can give you
10 of the very scariest stories the internet can provide.
Let’s see if you can beat them, or let’s see if you can even handle them.
My name is Danny Burke and this is the Top 10 Scary Childhood Stories.
Coming in at number 10 we have The Millers.
This one comes from Reddit user Wjescott.
He said he grew up in a poor family in South Dakota.
His town had just 530 people in it so he would often spend his time in the local library
reading.
On one such day, he was reading a history book about his area.
It talked about a family called The Millers.
Even though he didn’t like his Grandma, he asked her about them.
She refused.
He asked his aunts and uncles.
He found out that in the 1930s, a family called the Millers had abandoned their property and
moved to California.
He got curious and decided to look for the old house, even though his family said it
was foolish.
He cycled out there and to his amazement, he saw a pyramid looking object sticking out
of the ground.
As he got closer, he realized it was actually a roof, the building was buried in the ground.
He climbed into the attic and saw some holes going down to the rooms underneath.
He glances into one and for a second, he thought he something or someone lying on the floor.
He ran as quick as he could, all the way back home.
His friend didn’t believe what he had found so he took him there.
However, when they arrived – they found the spot, they could see the tracks from when
he was there before, but the house had gone, vanished, there was nothing there at all.
His tracks looked like he had just walked around the area in a circle.
His whole family laughed at him but in the 30 years since then, he has sworn what he
saw was true.
Next up at number 9, we have Tennis Camp.
Reddit user OldTrafford24 said that when he was 11 he went to tennis camp.
He traveled there with his Mum and every day, something odd would happen.
As they walked past a fire hydrant, a boy on a bike would cycle past and ring his bell,
then an old woman would yell at him about 20ft down the road.
The boy followed the same path, and the woman was always in the same spot, yelling the same
thing.
It freaked him out – like they were stuck in a perfect loop.
He joked with his Mum that they were aliens.
His Mum explained what a coincidence was – he knew what that was, and this didn’t feel like
it.
The next Friday, they followed the same route though.
This time, something was different though.
The boy didn’t ride by.
The woman didn’t scream.
They were nowhere to be seen.
But then, inside a store by the side of the road, he saw them.
They were both standing there, an inch from the glass, heads facing downwards slightly,
staring directly at him.
They didn’t move a muscle, they didn’t blink.
He never saw them again but said he will never forget how creepy it was …
Moving on to number 8 we have the Melting Face.
This one comes from Reddit user SpiderLaneWales who says that when he was very young, he slept
in his parent’s bed one night.
He woke up and remembered the clock read 4 AM.
There was something standing by the window, looking out into the front yard.
It looked like a man in a brown wool robe, he was about 6ft 4.
He sat up in bed and the -thing- turned and looked at him.
He never forgot the face.
Pale white skin, covered in wrinkles, the face drooped like it was melting down into
a pointed chin.
Later in life, he saw the famous Scream mask and thought it reminded him of that.
However, despite the face resembling a mask, it still looked alive.
Its mouth was hanging open and its eyes were wide, almost like it was worried or scared.
It stared at him while it moved from the window, past the bed and out of the open bedroom door.
The second it exited the room, the lights turned on by themselves.
Both his parents jumped up on either side of him, breathing heavily like they’d just
woken up from a nightmare.
They don’t remember anything before waking up – but he still does.
Next up at number 7, we have Toilet Squad.
This one comes from Reddit user -Raise the avanc- who said he grew up in California and
his family would often visit Big Sur for camping, hiking and such.
During a visit when he was 7, he went to the bathroom in a restaurant called the River
Inn.
There were 3 cubicles including one handicapped one.
He went into a regular one as the other two were taken.
He remembers looking under the doors to see if he could see anyone but there was nobody.
Then, he looked into the toilet and there – was a huge squid.
The body was at least a foot long, with tentacles coiled around the inside of the toilet bowl.
It filled all the available space, its cloudy squid eyes gazing up at him.
He ran out of the bathroom, told nobody, and waited 45 minutes to use the toilet at home.
He said 25 years later, the empty locked cubicles and the toilet squid still freak him out…
Moving onto number 6 now we have The Bus Trip.
This one comes from a Reddit user called Bananas.
She was on a 15-hour bus trip with his family through Mexico.
It was late at night, after several hours they stopped at a gas station.
That’s when she noticed there were a lot of police cars around.
When they got back on the bus, their driver told them they the police had received a tip
that our bus was being targeted for a robbery by Mexican bandits, they would escort them.
They drove for hours along a winding road on the side of a cliff.
One police truck pulled in front, one went behind, all the police were armed.
Even as a kid, she was on high alert but eventually fell asleep.
She woke when the bus came to an abrupt stop.
She remembers peering out of the front window and seeing some large rocks that had clearly
been placed across the road.
Everything was dark except for the rocks illuminated by the bus lights.
She knew that if the police weren’t there, the bus driver would have got out to remove
the rocks and then, the bandits would have attacked, robbed and possibly even killed
them all.
The scariest thing was that even though the police were there, the bandits must have been
nearby, lurking in trees, waiting.
Next up at number 5, we have The Arctic Lights.
This one comes from Reddit user -MeaninglessDebateMan.
He said he grew up in the arctic circle.
One night he borrowed his parent’s snowmobile one night to head out of their small town.
He wanted to lie in the snow, away from the light pollution and watch the northern lights
and whatever else passed over the clear sky.
As he’s lying there, he hears a clicking noise and presumes it’s his snowmobile cooling down.
When he realized it wasn’t that, he thought it might be an animal nearby – but it was
too mechanical for that.
Then he noticed the sound was coming from above.
He scanned the sky but found nothing.
Just before giving up, he noticed something strange in the Northern Lights.
There were 3 strong points of light getting steadily brighter.
The clicking noises got louder too.
Then, it all stopped – like nothing had happened at all.
He heads back home on his snowmobile, wondering if he was going crazy.
His house was quiet when usually his family would still be awake.
It wasn’t until he got into bed and looked at the time that something hit him.
It was almost 6 AM.
He had gone to lie in the snow at 11 AM.
He thought he had seen those clicking lights for just a few moments when in reality, he
had been staring at them for almost 7 hours.
What were they?
How did they do that to him?
Your guess is as good as mine …
Next, up at number 4, we have The Abandoned Hospital.
This one comes from Reddit user Oozero.
As a kid, he and some friends decided to check out an abandoned mental hospital.
The only way in was through the autopsy room.
One of the girls started crying and said she wanted to go back.
They tried to convince her otherwise but to no avail.
As they walked out, he took a glance back.
It was dark but there was a little moonlight.
There, on the second floor, was a girl in a white dress, standing at the window, watching
them leave.
He stared at her and made his friend watch too.
He thought it might be a trick of the light but after 20 seconds or so, the girl moved.
They ran as fast as they could away.
When they got home, they tried to brush it off and explain it away, but they couldn’t
and even today, they still can’t explain the girl in the window.
Moving on to number 3 now we have The Nursery.
This one comes from DeeJayLiz.
For this one, his Mum was actually pregnant with him but its too good to miss out.
His parents had just bought their house and within a few days, the neighbors came over
to introduce themselves.
They also told his parents that the previous owners had moved out after a nasty divorce.
Their second baby had died suddenly and their relationship fell apart from there.
His parents were horrified and couldn’t imagine going through the same thing.
They eventually almost forgot about it and life went on.
In preparation for the baby, they decided on the wallpaper the nursery room.
His Dad told his Mum there was no need to wallpaper the inside of the closet but she
insisted.
She was kneeling down, scraping off old paint inside of the closet when her eyes fell upon
something and she froze in terror.
There, written in crayon at about the eye level of a toddler, a childish scribble said
-I KILLED THE BABY-… now they knew what happened to those parents 2nd baby, and it
looks like the 1st was to blame …
Next, up at number 2, we have The Long Skirt.
One Reddit user said that his Dad used to help look after an old house and would go
and check on it every 6 weeks.
He would go along with his Dad on Sunday mornings because he loved the building and the history
it had.
So many people and lived and died within its walls.
On one such morning, his Dad was working away and he was playing upstairs in one room that
used to be for a child.
He always liked playing in that room.
He had been playing for about 5 minutes when he got a strange feeling that someone was
watching him.
He turned around to see what looked like a long skirt follow someone down the hallway.
He snuck out to see who was there and caught a glimpse of the back of a woman walking into
another room.
He entered the room literally two seconds after – and the place was empty.
There was only one door to the room as well.
He told his Dad and they searched the house, it was empty – but he knew what he saw, and
he knew it must have something to do with the history of the old building …
And finally, at number 1 we have The Blue Dress.
This one comes from Mr. Hegel.
He said when he was younger he used to think he was having dreams of an old woman in a
blue dress and cat eye glasses sitting at the end of his bed singing to him.
Shed always sing the same song and then leave.
One night he followed her into his brother’s room.
Instead of singing to him he woke up and they began talking.
After 20 minutes their mother came in and asked what they were doing.
His brother said he was just talking to the lady in the blue dress.
The mother sent them to bed.
The next day she told them to stop sneaking out of bed in the middle of the night to play
with his brother.
He asked her what she was talking about and she gave him her version of what happened
which was the same except no lady in the blue dress and cat eye glasses.
The woman stopped visiting him after that and he began to wonder if it had even happened
at all.
A while later, his aunt came to visit and refused to enter their house from outside.
They asked why and she said there was an old woman standing in the upstairs window, wearing
cat glasses and a bright blue dress …
What did you think of those then?
Did any of them bring back some childhood memories that you’d forgotten?
I read one that kind of did – that’s pretty creepy.
Have you got any creepier stories for a part 2?
Let’s hear them in the comments section – thanks for watching as always guys, my name is Danny
Burke and Ill see you all in the next video.

Tony Stark Mark 3 Suit Up Scene – Iron Man (2008) HD – Duration: 2:47. The 15-mile hike to the outskirts of Gulmira can only be described
as a descent into hell, into a modern day Heart of Darkness.
Simple farmers and herders from peaceful villages
have been driven from their homes,
displaced from their lands by warlords emboldened by a new-found power.
Villagers have been forced to take shelter in whatever crude dwellings
they can find in the ruins of other villages,
or here in the remnants of an old Soviet smelting plant.
Recent violence has been attributed to a group of foreign fighters
referred to by locals as the Ten Rings.
As you can see, these men are heavily armed and on a mission.
A mission that could prove fatal to anyone who stands in their way.
With no political will or international pressure,
there’s very little hope for these refugees.
Around me, a woman begging for news on her husband,
who was kidnapped by insurgents,
either forced to join their militia…
Desperate refugees clutch yellowed photographs,
holding them up to anyone who will stop.
A child‘s simple question, “Where are my mother and father?”
There’s very little hope for these refugees,
refugees who can only wonder who, if anyone, will help.

!ENG SUB! Bugurt Armor. Arsenal: Episode 1 – Duration: 24:12. Hi, everybody!
My name is Sergei Ukolov
This is my youtube channel about Fencing, armory, tutorials and other things
We’re almost done shooting a video about the basics of fencing.
Since we are fighting in armor, I will tell you about my armor.
There will be two videos
The first will be about the armor for the Bugurt, the second about the armor for the tournaments.
It is used for triathlon, shield-sword, buckler sword and longsword.
Let’s start with the Bugurt armor. How do we proceed?
I’ll undress and tell you about every part of the armor.
Let’s start with the helmet and finish it with Sabatons.
I’ll talk about the characteristics of the armor, what it’s made of, how much it weighs.
And that I would improve. Or what parts I would replace.
Each fighter must respect and care for his armor ..
You must improve your armor, keep it clean.
Remember about your armor! You must not leave it in your bag until the next competition.
Blowed off his rust and all.
This armor will fail you.
Fight in this armor is ugly.
Let’s get started!
Let’s start with helmets. I have two.
The first helmet is Bascinet “wolf’s ribs”.
In this helmet I fought once. He’s just beautiful.
What is good about it? Does not block vision, does not block breath.
Very good protection. This helmet is made in Cherepovets city. Made of good armor steel.
In this helmet, I’m not afraid of anything. Except one.
If the opponent hits you with an axe between the ribs.
Your face is far away. But he can get you.
Or, during a battle, a sword can enter the slot.
It’s like an ordinary eye socket of a helmet, only you can hit different parts of your face.
What else? The helmet is quite deep.
When I wear it, my side vision is lost.
It turns out that in the tophelm Gryphon the eye socket is smaller, and my vision is better in it .
Because of the side view, which is not here. All for the safety.
On Battle of the nations, you can not make additional vertical ribs.
Next!
I’ll tell you about the straps.
I asked the blacksmith to put more straps on. And stronger.
One strap can rip or unstrap, so I asked for two straps.
I wanted the helmet to come off only with the head.
It hurts when the helmet flies from the head.
The edges are “historical rightly”, it is attached to the upper clamp. Ribs are not riveted to the helmet.
That was my fault. Because of the pursuit of historicity, Ribs are heavier in half.
Weight is shifted forward due to very heavy rods.
It’s just a cloth.
Two layers of linen fabric for beauty.
There is no mail coif here.
Here is the padded coif with titanium plates on padded collar on vulnerable parts. On the cervical vertebrae and on the collarbone.
They are light and do not rust.
But I think you need more such plates.
If I do not sell this helmet.
And a beautiful padded coif with a coat of arms.
This is my first experiment with ribs. I did not like.
But I think I’ll try again
This is the famous Ukrainian helmet “Griffin”. Half of the Ukrainian team is fighting in it ..
I was presented with this helmet. For promotional purposes.
A good and strong helmet. I use it for battles. I used it in the battle of the nations.
With a helmet “griffin” such Gorget is supposed. It’s very scary.
Unhistorical. It’s just… Armor.
You can replace it with a plastic gorget and hide it under the cloth.
But it closes the collarbones well. There are four layers of cotton wool.
Good plates. This is relatively safe.
But it’s ugly, I’ll redo it. But that it is necessary to put on under a helmet.
A simple gorget. It’s made like a brigandine.
About the gauntlets!
The first thing I bought for HMB is a pair of scaly gauntlets.
This is a very popular model, but I have them from titanium.
Steel is cheaper and heavier.
I always use the left glove.
The shield is always torn off. No matter what straps you use.
or you simply lose it.
This is to ensure that your hand is protected.
And I always put the bracers on my left arm.
Otherwise, you will take away the shield and the judge will order you to sit down.
Even without a shield, you must be able to fight.
Right glove I wear only out of despair.
It protects against sliding blows.
It protects against scratches. But if there comes a sharp and powerful blow…
Everything will be very bad. Bruise or a broken wrist.
Gloves-boxes are prohibited on the battle of the nations. Therefore, I fought in this glove or lent the glove to the Jews.
It is very scary in it. If the battle is in full swing, it’s better not to be in such a glove.
But gloves-boxes are not allowed in Battle of the Nations.
This glove on the left hand is made for those who really believe in their shield.
The fingers are well protected, there are very massive plates.
Good glove but I do not use it.
Because the shield will fail you, and you will fail your comrades.
Glove box (or steel fist)
It is made in Ukraine bu Sasha Vasilinichev. Hi Sasha!
It is made of stainless steel.
Very heavy at the present time.
Such a long time no one uses.
But it is very reliable.
You can place it for the attack of a halberd or axe.
it is ugly.
But what is very important for bugurts, it protects your Ulna.
it is small, it is difficult to grasp for it.
But if your hand is bent, the ulna will be protected.
Also this protector saves you from a fracture of the hand when your hand is turned.
With this glove I prefer to fight.
Pauldrons!

The journey through loss and grief | Jason B. Rosenthal – Duration: 14:09. There are three words that explain why I am here.
They are “Amy Krouse Rosenthal.”
At the end of Amy’s life,
hyped up on morphine and home in hospice,
the “New York Times” published an article she wrote
for the “Modern Love” column on March 3, 2017.
It was read worldwide by over five million people.
The piece was unbearably sad,
ironically funny
and brutally honest.
While it was certainly about our life together,
the focus of the piece was me.
It was called, “You May Want to Marry My Husband.”
It was a creative play on a personal ad for me.
Amy quite literally left an empty space for me to fill
with another love story.
Amy was my wife for half my life.
She was my partner in raising three wonderful, now grown children,
and really, she was my girl, you know?
We had so much in common.
We loved the same art,
the same documentaries, the same music.
Music was a huge part of our life together.
And we shared the same values.
We were in love,
and our love grew stronger up until her last day.
Amy was a prolific author.
In addition to two groundbreaking memoirs,
she published over 30 children‘s books.
Posthumously, the book she wrote with our daughter Paris,
called “Dear Girl,”
reached the number one position on the “New York Times” bestseller list.
She was a self-described tiny filmmaker.
She was 5’1″ and her films were not that long.
(Laughter)
Her films exemplified her natural ability to gather people together.
She was also a terrific public speaker,
talking with children and adults of all ages
all over the world.
Now, my story of grief is only unique in the sense of it being rather public.
However, the grieving process itself was not my story alone.
Amy gave me permission to move forward, and I’m so grateful for that.
Now, just a little over a year into my new life,
I’ve learned a few things.
I’m here to share with you part of the process of moving forward
through and with grief.
But before I do that, I think it would be important
to talk a little bit about the end of life,
because it forms how I have been emotionally since then.
Death is such a taboo subject, right?
Amy ate her last meal on January 9, 2017.
She somehow lived an additional two months
without solid food.
Her doctors told us we could do hospice at home
or in the hospital.
They did not tell us that Amy would shrink to half her body weight,
that she would never lay with her husband again,
and that walking upstairs to our bedroom would soon feel like running a marathon.
Home hospice does have an aura of being a beautiful environment to die in.
How great that you don’t have the sounds of machines beeping
and going on and off all the time,
no disruptions for mandatory drug administration,
home with your family to die.
We did our best to make those weeks as meaningful as we could.
We talked often about death.
Everybody knows it’s going to happen to them, like, for sure,
but being able to talk openly about it was liberating.
We talked about subjects like parenting.
I asked Amy how I could be the best parent possible to our children in her absence.
In those conversations, she gave me confidence
by stressing what a great relationship I had with each one of them,
and that I can do it.
I know there will be many times
where I wish she and I can make decisions together.
We were always so in sync.
May I be so audacious as to suggest
that you have these conversations now,
when healthy.
Please don’t wait.
As part of our hospice experience, we organized groups of visitors.
How brave of Amy to receive them, even as she began her physical decline.
We had a Krouse night,
her parents and three siblings.
Friends and family were next.
Each told beautiful stories of Amy and of us.
Amy made an immense impact on her loyal friends.
But home hospice is not so beautiful for the surviving family members.
I want to get a little personal here and tell you that to this date,
I have memories of those final weeks that haunt me.
I remember walking backwards to the bathroom,
assisting Amy with each step.
I felt so strong.
I’m not such a big guy,
but my arms looked and felt so healthy compared to Amy’s frail body.
And that body failed in our house.
On March 13 of last year,
my wife died of ovarian cancer in our bed.
I carried her lifeless body
down our stairs,
through our dining room
and our living room
to a waiting gurney
to have her body cremated.
I will never get that image out of my head.
If you know someone who has been through the hospice experience,
acknowledge that.
Just say you heard this guy Jason
talk about how tough it must be to have those memories
and that you’re there if they ever want to talk about it.
They may not want to talk,
but it’s nice to connect with someone living each day with those lasting images.
I know this sounds unbelievable, but I’ve never been asked that question.
Amy’s essay caused me to experience grief in a public way.
Many of the readers who reached out to me wrote beautiful words of reflection.
The scope of Amy’s impact was deeper and richer
than even us and her family knew.
Some of the responses I received helped me with the intense grieving process
because of their humor,
like this email I received from a woman reader
who read the article, declaring,
“I will marry you when you are ready —
(Laughter)
“provided you permanently stop drinking.
No other conditions.
I promise to outlive you.
Thank you very much.”
Now, I do like a good tequila, but that really is not my issue.
Yet how could I say no to that proposal?
(Laughter)
I laughed through the tears when I read this note from a family friend:
“I remember Shabbat dinners at your home
and Amy teaching me how to make cornbread croutons.
Only Amy could find creativity in croutons.”
(Laughter)
On July 27, just a few months after Amy’s death,
my dad died of complications
related to a decades-long battle with Parkinson’s disease.
I had to wonder: How much can the human condition handle?
What makes us capable of dealing with this intense loss
and yet carry on?
Was this a test?
Why my family and my amazing children?
Looking for answers, I regret to say, is a lifelong mission,
but the key to my being able to persevere
is Amy’s expressed and very public edict
that I must go on.
Throughout this year, I have done just that.
I have attempted to step out and seek the joy and the beauty
that I know this life is capable of providing.
But here’s the reality:
those family gatherings,
attending weddings and events honoring Amy,
as loving as they are,
have all been very difficult to endure.
People say I’m amazing.
“How do you handle yourself that way during those times?”
They say, “You do it with such grace.”
Well, guess what?
I really am sad a lot of the time.
I often feel like I’m kind of a mess,
and I know these feelings apply to other surviving spouses,
children, parents
and other family members.
In Japanese Zen, there is a term “Shoji,”
which translates as “birth death.”
There is no separation between life and death
other than a thin line that connects the two.
Birth, or the joyous, wonderful, vital parts of life,
and death, those things we want to get rid of,
are said to be faced equally.
In this new life that I find myself in,
I am doing my best to embrace this concept as I move forward with grieving.
In the early months following Amy’s death, though,
I was sure that the feeling of despair would be ever-present,
that it would be all-consuming.
Soon I was fortunate to receive some promising advice.
Many members of the losing-a-spouse club
reached out to me.
One friend in particular who had also lost her life partner kept repeating,
“Jason, you will find joy.”
I didn’t even know what she was talking about.
How was that possible?
But because Amy gave me very public permission
to also find happiness,
I now have experienced joy from time to time.
There it was, dancing the night away at an LCD Soundsystem concert,
traveling with my brother and best friend or with a college buddy on a boys’ trip
to meet a group of great guys I never met before.
From observing that my deck had sun beating down on it on a cold day,
stepping out in it, laying there,
the warmth consuming my body.
The joy comes from my three stunning children.
There was my son Justin,
texting me a picture of himself with an older gentleman
with a massive, strong forearm and the caption, “I just met Popeye,”
with a huge grin on his face.
(Laughter)
There was his brother Miles, walking to the train
for his first day of work after graduating college,
who stopped and looked back at me and asked,
“What am I forgetting?”
I assured him right away, “You are 100 percent ready. You got this.”
And my daughter Paris,
walking together through Battersea Park in London,
the leaves piled high,
the sun glistening in the early morning on our way to yoga.
I would add that beauty is also there to discover,
and I mean beauty of the wabi-sabi variety
but beauty nonetheless.
On the one hand, when I see something in this category, I want to say,
“Amy, did you see that? Did you hear that?
It’s too beautiful for you not to share with me.”
On the other hand,
I now experience these moments
in an entirely new way.
There was the beauty I found in music,
like the moment in the newest Manchester Orchestra album,
when the song “The Alien”
seamlessly transitions into “The Sunshine,”
or the haunting beauty of Luke Sital-Singh’s “Killing Me,”
whose chorus reads,
“And it’s killing me that you’re not here with me.
I’m living happily, but I’m feeling guilty.”
There is beauty in the simple moments that life has to offer,
a way of seeing that world that was so much a part of Amy’s DNA,
like on my morning commute,
looking at the sun reflecting off of Lake Michigan,
or stopping and truly seeing how the light shines
at different times of the day
in the house we built together;
even after a Chicago storm, noticing the fresh buildup of snow
throughout the neighborhood;
or peeking into my daughter’s room
as she’s practicing the bass guitar.
Listen, I want to make it clear that I’m a very fortunate person.
I have the most amazing family that loves and supports me.
I have the resources for personal growth during my time of grief.
But whether it’s a divorce,
losing a job you worked so hard at
or having a family member die suddenly
or of a slow-moving and painful death,
I would like to offer you
what I was given:
a blank of sheet of paper.
What will you do with your intentional empty space,
with your fresh start?
Thank you.
(Applause)

How to Make Kitchen Scrubbies – Duration: 8:27. Hey guys, it’s Clara from Online Fabric Store
Many people swear these crocheted kitchen scrubbers are better than anything store-bought
Our nylon netting is super popular to make these scrubbies
You can also use tulle, but the texture of the netting is ideal for scrubbing pots and pans.
They last a surprisingly long time, they don’t scratch and you can wash them in the top rack of your dishwasher.
So let’s get started
The materials you’ll need are: Nylon, netting, a 10 millimeter size N crochet hook, and a rotary cutter and mat or scissors
No prior crocheting experience is needed to make this easy scrubby
Since it’s hard to see the stitches when using the netting I’m first going to demonstrate with yarn
Make a slipknot by creating a ring with the yarn then move the yarn behind the circle
Take the crochet hook and pull the yarn through the circle. Tighten the yarn around the hook
Hold the hook in your right hand
I hold the yarn so it’s going over my index finger and between the index and middle fingers
The first step is to chain four
This is the most basic crocheting stitch
Move the hook to the left of the yarn and go under so the yarn is looped around it
This is called a yarn over. Pull this loop through the loop already on the crochet hook
Repeat this three more times. It helps to hold the work between your left thumb and middle or index finger
To make this chain into a circle put the hook through the first stitch
Yarn over and pull the yarn through both loops on the hook.
This is called a slip stitch. You should now have a small circle
Next chain three like before.
Now I’m going to show you the double crochet
Yarn over, put the hook through the circle, catch the yarn with the hook on the other side and pull it back through the circle
You should now have three loops on the hook. Yarn over and pull the yarn through the first two loops
Yarn over again and pull it through the two remaining loops. That is one double crochet
Repeat this ten more times
Counting the chain-3 you should now have a total of 12 spokes coming out of the center circle
To complete the round do a slip stitch
Put the hook through the top stitch of the chain 3
It looks best to go through the front and back loops of the stitch so it will look like there are 3 loops on the hook
Yarn over and pull through all the loops
Chain 3 to start the next round
We’re going to do two double crochets in each stitch, which will create a total of 24 spokes
Yarn over then go through the front and back loops of the first stitch
After one double crochet is complete go through the first stitch again to do the second double crochet of the round
Repeat until you have twenty-four double crochets including the chain 3
Slip stitch through the top chain stitch to complete the round
Cut the yarn and pull it through the final loop to finish this side
Repeat these steps to create another circle for the other side, which I’ve already done.
On the 2nd circle, leave the last stitch on the hook. Put the two circles back to back
Push the hook through the front and back loops of the first stitch of each of the circles
Yarn over and pull back through the stitches
With two loops on the hook yarn over and pull through both. Repeat until you get back to the beginning
Cut the yarn and pull it through the final loop
You would normally weave in the ends of the yarn, but I’ll leave them since this is just practice
Time to move on to the nylon netting. Fold the netting in half a few times
Using a rotary cutter and mat cut off the uneven end then cut the netting into 2-inch strips
You can do this with scissors, but the rotary cutter is easier
Cut eight to ten strips, which is about half a yard
Create a slip knot at the end of one of the strips
I find it helps to twist it before knotting. I’m using a size N crochet hook but you can go smaller or larger
Start by chaining four
Slip stitch to make a circle and start the first round by chaining three
Double crochet into the center until there are 12 spokes including the first chain
The netting is harder to work with and the stitches aren’t defined like they are with the yarn
It takes a little getting used to so don’t worry if your first couple tries look uneven and messy
Slip stitch to finish the round
When you get to the end of a strip simply knot it with another strip
When you get to the knot make sure it’s on the back of the work
Chain 3 and double crochet two into each stitch
It’s hard to pick out individual stitches so you can just double crochet into the opening between spokes
Double crochet 24 times counting the chain three
Slip stitch to join the round
When you have two circles trim all the ends of the netting.
You don’t have to wave them in since they’ll be on the inside
Place the circles back to back. Put the hook through the first gap on the front and back
Yarn over and pull back through.
Since it’s hard to see the stitches you can go through the gaps on the second round instead of the actual stitches
Yarn over again and pull through the two remaining loops on the hook
Work all the way around
It does take a little while to get used to working with netting and to get the tension consistent
But the more times you do it the faster and easier it gets
When finished cut the netting and pull it through the last loop
Insert the hook through the center and out near the tail of the netting.
Hook the netting and pull it out through the center
Pull it tight and cut so it’s hidden inside
That completes the scrubby
There are many other ways to crochet scrubbies with different combinations of stitches. You can also use different colors for each round
So make some for your friends your family and yourself. I hear they sell very well at craft fairs. Thanks for watching this OFS project

Final Deployment 4: Queen Battle Walkthrough | adult swim – Duration: 21:25. ♪♪
What up, y’all? It’s your boy BlairTrigger.
Blow blow blow blow.
AKA Blair’s Waldo, AKA Blairly Legal,
AKA The Trigga Man.
Sorry I haven’t posted in a while.
I’ve been down in Flo-Rida visiting my mom.
Uh, she’s been sick, uh, is still pretty, uh, sick,
and, uh, and I’m back in full effect once again.
Today, we’re gonna talk about Final Deployment 4.
Now, I’ve been getting a ton of requests for this,
and it is a toughy.
Luckily for us, there’s a glitch
that’s gonna make it a whole heck of a lot easier.
Keep those likes and comments coming.
Nom nom, Daddy likey comments.
And don’t forget to subscribe to my channel
at the link [German accent] below the video.
Danke.
[ Normal voice ] Now, first, you gotta clear out
these bug soldiers.
You’re gonna be tempted to use your g-nades.
But don’t use your ‘nades, man.
You’re gonna need those for later.
[ Dramatic music plays ]
Oh, no, Garcia!
And cue cut scene.
♪♪
Yeah, you did fail me, ya weak-ass punk.
‘Cause you’re dead now and not a huge help.
And by the way, if Garcia is such a good friend,
how come I can’t pick up his med packs or his ammo?
You’re dead to me, all right, Garcia?
No, ’cause you’re actually dead.
Anyhoo…
Now, here the Queen’s tail sac bursts open,
spreading ass-id juice —
see what I did there — everywhere.
And if you’re low on med packs, you’re not gonna survive —
unless you know the glitch!
Behind the blue car, you can hop on this drain pipe
and scoot inside the wall, and the acid can’t hurt you.
Wheeee!
I’m a ghost! Oh!
Then her ass opens up, all right.
She’s gonna spread her flower to you.
Remember when I said hang on to your g-nades?
You’re welcome again.
Light that open ass up with the g-nades.
Rinse, lather, repeat, then bing, bang, boom.
You’re a goddamn war hero, soldier.
Uh, now, after getting discharged from the army,
you’re at the space port in your hometown,
waiting for your fiancée to pick you up.
Okay, you wait here for about 30 minutes, real time,
and then you have an option to call her.
[ Ringing ]
Woman: Hey.
[ Dial tone ]
That’s cold-blooded, y’all.
She’s leaving you for a bug that defected
and got Earth citizenship.
Ouch.
Now you can either throw your phone or beat up a trash can.
It doesn’t matter.
None of this part matters.
Next is your mom giving you a car ride home.
Thanks, Mom.
You’re looking out at the world —
everyone has been living their lives
while you’ve been away at war.
And Mom’s just prattling on and on about gosh knows what.
Your rage meter starts to go up —
you’ve got to keep pressing “X”
or else you will power attack your own mother
and you won’t unlock your “Family Matters” achievement.
And you gotta do this for about 30 minutes,
more if there’s traffic.
Um, to kill the time,
there’s a couple of different things you can do.
You can look at your lap,
you can rifle through this glove box here like so,
um, anything to keep down your
“uncomfortableness of existence” meter.
MasterQueef453 asks,
“Is there a cheat code to make this section shorter?”
None that I know of.
KaiserRollSoze92 asks, “Can you kill your mom?”
You actually can, Kaiser, but you’ll lose.
So you’ll want to avoid that.
All right, if you keep your view pointed at your mom
at least half the time,
you’ll unlock your “Bended Ear” badge.
Good for you.
Now, your mom changed your old room into her craft room.
Uh, there’s ducks everywhere — just ducks, ducks, ducks.
Look — Look around.
That’s one, two, three, four, five —
there’s at — there’s at least 10 ducks
that I’m seeing right here.
She makes ducks.
That’s what she does now in your old room.
There’s a water spot on the ceiling,
that’s kind of interesting, that if you look at,
it kind of resembles a pair of lips.
Why don’t you just kill yourself?
I know you want to.
So keep that depression meter way down here —
I mean, like, way, way down, or the hallucinations get worse
and you will shoot yourself in the head.
And obviously, that’s game over.
There’s a leaky air mattress,
and you press “X” next to it to rest.
Okay, and it’s the only checkpoint.
All right, so now you’re at your job, all right?
You work at a drug store, nothing too fancy,
but at least it’s getting you back on your feet.
Great job.
You hit “X” to pick up the next drug
and “Y” to put the price tag on, and then “Z” to put it back.
So you do that for about eight hours,
and again, that’s real time.
XYZ. XYZ.
XYZ just kind of over and over. You get the idea.
Now, don’t double-tap because if you do, uh,
you’ll get two price tags on it, which your manager doesn’t like,
doesn’t look as good, so you’re gonna have to peel one off,
which is the right bumper, by the way.
Your coworker Randall has an annoying skin tag.
You can see it right there.
He just refuses to get it removed
and it’s a whole thing.
Just do your best to ignore it, or else your rage meter’s
gonna go up again, like it did just right there.
Uh, HAXelRose says, “This is boring
and he needs to rejoin the army.”
Uh, well, while I do agree with you,
the war is over and the game doesn’t allow you to do that.
If you tag all the boxes,
you get the achievement “All in a Day’s Work“.
Which is its own reward.
All right, now, the next level —
danger zone here, guys.
Next level, Scourge drives by his ex’s apartment.
Now, I’ve heard there’s a random event
that I haven’t encountered yet,
but there’s a possibility you could see your ex
and an alien silhouette kissing in the window.
You’ll get an option to knock on the door,
but do not do that — I repeat, don’t do it! —
or else you will get into a fight and go to jail.
No thanks.
Hit left trigger as soon as you can and drive off.
Get the heck out of dodge!
You’ll notice here that these levels start
to blend together a lot.
You can actually brush your teeth, or not.
I usually do just to affect my dental stats positively
later in the game.
All right, now, you go to your air mattress,
but before you press “X” to rest —
Lawrence! We’ve got company!
We got company!
PTSD attack!
I know it’s cliché and maybe a little insensitive,
but it’s the most fun part of this level.
[ Chuckles ] I’m back. [ Chuckles ] Miss me?
All right, start punching all the bugs,
and grab the biggest bug.
You start to choke it by using the right bumper,
but don’t choke it too hard.
Spoiler alert, it’s your mom!
[ Chuckles ] You’re choking your mother.
Uh, you’re back in that craft room.
It’s torn up.
There’s a conversation tree
where your mom wants to kick you out,
and, uh, just always choose “sorry,”
like, as quick as possible.
I’ve gone through all the conversation trees,
and it’s the only way to get through it, uh,
without it taking forever.
How could you do this?
It’ll take forever anyway.
She forces you to go to the veterans hospital
to get your PTSD meds.
All right, at the VA hospital,
and you gotta sit here in the waiting room.
Now, I tried all the different dialogue trees here,
and any way you slice it,
you’re gonna have to wait for 2, 2 1/2 hours.
Again, real time.
Also, if you go around looking for things to loot,
like this here first-aid kit on the wall,
they bust you for stealing.
There’s no looting in this part of the game.
One thing you can do that I recommend is getting a coffee
because… the doctor shows up, he’s a bug!
Fighting aliens your whole life
and you come back, one’s your doctor.
What are the odds!?
His name tag is one of those weird names
that Scourge thinks might be his ex’s new boyfriend,
and he’s got a lot of feelings
that he doesn’t know how to process
and doesn’t know what to do with.
So just keep looking back down at that coffee and hitting “X”
and the right buttons to take deep breaths
or you will throw a punch.
When you start to imagine that bug having sex
with your ex-fiancée, simple, just look at the wall.
When you start imagining them having sex in the wall,
look back at the coffee, pretty simple, or at your shoes.
Just keep moving your view, but not to the alien!
Also, your jealousy meter, your self-hatred meter —
check all your meters.
Uh, book your appointment
a little bit earlier in the morning
because that way, the wait isn’t as long, I’ve found.
All right, and that’s about enough for now.
I’ll be back with part two next time.
And we’ll see you trigger heads later.
Blocka, blocka, blocka.

I’m sorry I wasn’t able to get it up sooner.
Uh, my roommate went nuts and just attacked me
and totally sucker-punched me,
and I’m pretty sure I saw him steal a car from a chef.
I don’t know why he acted like that.
He used to be one of my best friends, and…
I don’t know, I’ve been acting weird lately.
Maybe I’m not myself.
Have you ever felt like you’re not in control?
[ Chuckles ] LOL, so weird.
Anyways, back to the walkthrough.
Uh, so you get your meds, and you’re back
to your mom’s craft room slash your bedroom.
You told your mom you needed a computer
to apply for better jobs,
so she let you keep hers in the craft room
and you have a game called Moonshaft.
Collect some blue moon rocks here, and an option comes up.
Do you want Scourge to do a walkthrough of Moonshaft?
And here you press “X” to have Scourge press “X.”
Hey guys, this is my first walkthrough video,
so please be nice.
Since you’re a veteran,
you wanna mention that you have PTSD
to get those sweet, sweet sympathy points.
…because I have PTSD, so, here is Moonshaft.
Today, I’m going to show you a neat thing you can create.
You need three blue moon rocks and one green emerald rock.
Both: Now, you can’t find a green emerald rock,
so you have to combine a yellow and blue moon rocks.
And the yellow is under the waterfall.
Oh, here’s one!
[ Chuckles ] Moon monster!
Die, you piece of shit!
Die! Die!
Yeah!
All right.
Now, go to your moon creating table
and build a computer out of the blue stones.
Then have Scourge set up the Moonwalker
to do a walkthrough here.
Hey, everybody, this is Moonwalker.
Sorry I haven’t posted in awhile.
I had to get some yellow rocks,
and the moon monsters were really out in force today.

Scourge: …Unicorn Bust on his wrist communicator.
This is Captain Lion,
and I’m gonna show you how to play Unicorn Bust.
You shoot your unicorn horn at the rats,
and it blows up rats of a similar color.
Unless it’s an orange rat.
For an orange rat,
you need to get a bluestone horn and power it up.
Once you clear the level, your unicorn gets a tablet.
And your unicorn can play a game app
and then start doing a walkthrough.
Hit “X” and “Y” so Captain Lion will say, “Please subscribe.”

to allow your Boob Fart to collect Fart Flop Jewels.
Play for free on your phone.
Remember, you have to play every day
or else it deletes your Fart Flop Jewel tally.
Once you collect 50 Fart Flop Gems,
a fart bubble with a laptop will pop up.
Now pop the computer fart bubble,
and your boob fart can do a walkthrough.

Is there more to life than popping fart balloons
for Boob Fart Bucks and Fart Flop Gems?

…like I’m being controlled. I feel like if…
I feel like if life was a video game,
maybe I don’t have a good player…
…maybe I don’t have a good player controlling me.
I feel like…
I feel like a loser.
But other times…
But other times, I don’t know what to do.
I wish I had someone controlling me.

I really it hate it. I hate it.
Even when I have
proper paperwork and I’m doing something
totally legal – I hate it, right?
Has anybody crossed the border recently?
Was it fun? No! Of course not!
Right? ‘Cause you start pulling up to that little booth
and you start feeling bad about things you’ve never even thought about doing in your life.
Right? You’re just driving up to that thing,
you’re like, “Oh, I shouldn’t have killed all those bald eagles.”
“That’s gonna catch up with me here.”
And you get there and they ask you simple questions
but your brain shuts off, right?
They’ll just look at you, be like, “You got anything in the trunk?”
And you just panic.
You’re like, well, thirty seconds ago I’d have said nothing,
but now there’s a good chance it’s full of
dead kids stuffed with guns and heroin.
I can’t do this today. Peace.
You can’t do that either, eh?
You can’t quit when you get to the front of the line.
Right?
“Where ya headed?”
Back to Canada, bud, I can’t do this today.
They’ll chase you down the highway.
It’s not the same the other way around, right?
Like coming – coming in the Canadian side
is hilarious, right?
It’s just – you come up to that little red booth
and the guy pops his head out the window, he’s like, “Hey bud!”
How’s it going, man?
“Oh not too – not too bad, just watchin’ the border, y’know.”
“Where ya headed?”
Winnipeg.
“Oh, no way! Say hey to Gary for me.”
“You got anything in your car?”
“Ah, I don’t care, in ya go.”
American side’s a little different, isn’t it?
Right?
You wanna know why? Because they told those guys,
somewhere along the lines, they’re like, “Hey!”
“Listen! You’re the last line of defense!”
And they’re all morons so they’re like, “I’m the last line of defense!”
“I gotta protect my country! I’m the last line of defense!”
You’re not the last line of defense. You’re not protecting your country.
You’re just delaying Canadians’ trips to Target.
That’s all you’re doing.
(laughter, applause)
Right? And it’s just like – I got a nice
border cop once and I was immediately terrified, okay?
I had no idea how to handle it
’cause I was like, they’re not nice; this is a trick.
And I was right.
All right? I was right.
Because I got detained
for three and a half hours
because I borrowed my friend’s car
and he just didn’t know how to handle that.
Like he just didn’t understand the concept of borrowing.
He just looked at me, he’s like, “Well, where’s your friend now?”
I’m like, he’s at work in Toronto.
“And he just gave you his car?”
Well, like, I gotta give it back.
And he just sat there with a stupid look on his face
and at that moment in time I realized border cops don’t have friends.
You wouldn’t hang out with somebody who’s that big of a dick!
You wouldn’t go to Ed’s house if you showed up there
and he’s like “What are you doing here?”
You invited me over here to watch the game!
“You got anything on you?”
Yeah, snacks! Get out of the doorway!

Connecting with a native speaker doesn’t need to be so complicated nowadays, because we have apps like Cambly
you already know that Cambly is our favourite app to practise your speaking with natives from all around the world instantly.
and today we’re actually going to call some of these teachers
and correct the pronunciation of some words that can be complicated
for Spanish speakers.
Let’s see if they can understand us and if they can help us with the correct pronunciation.
Cambly has given us a free class for you.
so at the end of the video we’ll let you know how to get it, okay?
And now, let’s begin!
How’s it going?
Pretty good, how are you?
All good, great. thank you.
I’d like you to think how you would pronounce his name.
Ok, so, what’s your name sorry?
Liam, my name’s Liam. Not Laiam?
no, no, Liam.
Okay, where are you from?
I’m from Connecticut, it’s New York City
it’s just north of New York City.
I have a strong accent because I’m from
near to Manchester.
Ah okay. Yeah, we saw your were from the UK.
yeah. Next to Manchester? What’s the name of the place where you live?
It’s Stoke-on-Trent.
Ah yeah, it sounds familiar. It rings a bell. Stoke-on- Trent.
Are you ready for my words?
Hmm, I’ll do my best.
Health?
heard … no?
It’s something that you find in your body. Heart! In your chest.
You got it!
You heart pumps the blood around your body.
The heart as in: the heart is in your chest.
Minute
Mmm that’s an interesting way to say it
Minute, it exists yeah.
It’s two different words with the same spelling yeah so minute
what does it mean?
Very small, tiny, tiny, minute
Ah, minute!
As in: the dinner will be ready in a minute.
Biscuit!
I love to eat biscuits.
Biscuit!
People in England love biscuits.
True, and crumpets
especially with tea.
Tool?
Tool or tour?
Ok, so tour, the correct pronunciation is tour.
So I would like to take a tour of the city.
Iceland? Like the country?
Well, actually Iceland is an Island, so …
Oh! Island
You got it!
Island, the correct pronunciation is island.
So Hawaii is an island.
Tricky one!
I’m from the UK and I live on a island.
That’s a good one. We get very confused with prepositions so many people say
I live in an ‘Iceland’.
So I live on an island.
You can do this one, go for it!
Usually my students say ‘iron’
Iron?
iron? Is it iron? Okay
So the correct pronunciation is iron.
The building’s foundation is made of iron.
All my students say parents and then I correct them and then they keep saying
parents parents parents
I say no it’s parents. Parents, ok?
So an example would be my parents retired in Florida.
In the UK we retire to Spain
Oh actually yeah I went to Spain
and there were so many British people.
I hope they were behaving.
They were, they were nice, they were just playing golf
Law
I’m studying law at University.
Law, the pronunciation is law.
So, robbing from a bank is against the law.
Perfect!
Have you ever broken the law?
Not on purpose,
maybe I’ve done something and I didn’t know
actually when I was three I stole candy I don’t remember but my mom says I
I stole candy. I wanted candy and she wouldn’t buy it so I came out with a
fistful of lollipops
Wow, oh dear…
Have you ever broken the law Liam?
Be honest be honest
I yes I’ve broken the law probably a few times
yeah okay maybe yeah
a few times?
maybe speeding or something like this. Going over the speed limit or…
On purpose?
Probably not on purpose but without realising. I see …
Food
Flute
Flood!
Ah there you go!
Third time lucky.
Flood
That’s it
flood
so when there’s non-stop rain it becomes a flood.
So, for example, when you’re a vegetarian you don’t eat ‘sticks’
Steak steak!
Steak.
So, I would like my steak to be rare.
So, who’s the author of this book?
Author!
So the correct pronunciation is author.
George Orwell is my favourite author.
J K Rowling is my favourite author.
You’re a Harry Potter fan!
Oh I love Harry Potter yes.
but I think you pronounce this word a little bit different
in Britain we don’t pronounce the R so it’s just author author
but you guys in the States I think you pronounce the R at the end right?
mostly except in Boston.
They drop the R’s in Boston a lot
so the Boston pronunciation is more similar to the British one
yeah exactly
and how would you pronounce it again
let’s hear your pronunciation
author
I’m gonna move to America you know what
might be easier.
I’m tired of the British pronunciation, it’s too hard for us.
Give me that!
Sorry.
Can I ask you… What should you do if you are in Connecticut and you encounter a bear?
What is the best thing to do in that situation?
Depends on the bear
I can’t remember specifically which species you’re supposed to attack
and which species you run away or stand still
but some of them, you have to be as big as you can be, you spread yourself out and make noise.
to try and scare them?
Yeah
If they think they can eat you, they’ll eat you but if you are like … make yourself as big as possible
But what if the bear is running towards you? What should you do?
Run. Well actually it would outrun you. It depends what you’re close to
I wouldn’t run though for most bears.
I’ve heard some people say, the best thing to do is to play dead.
Yes, that’s another good strategy, is just stop moving.
Do you think that’d work though?
Depends on the bear
sometimes
Depends on how hungry the bear is.
I would just run as fast as I could.
I’d probably clim a tree, I think.
Oh climbing, going to high places, that could help you.
I ironed this before I came online yes.
And your trousers, have you ironed your trousers?
Actually, these are jeans, so I don’t iron these.
Ah ok.
These are not ironed.
You’re wearing trousers though, right?
I am wearing trousers, yes. Luckily for you.
I’ve got a few more…
100 more
no I’m just kidding. We’ve got… how many? Four?
four left.
I’ve got a few more. One hundred more.
No, I’m just kidding, we’ve got, how many? Four left.
