  1. @LMG, bubbly bottles: spin the metal 5 1/1 times
    Spin the bottle and not the cork. It makes it so that the cork pops with less force and less is likely to pour out doing so.

  2. Yeah the UK TV License is to watch live TV only, and yes it to fund the BBC and there is no advertisements played during a program only between episodes. You can still watch stuff like Netflix, Amazon Video and other such services without a TV license as long as it isn't live.

  3. why 4k resolution for some videos and not others, i know its arguably still not the most relevant technology but some of us use it. its actually one of the more prominent reasons this is my main tech channel. would really appreciate universal 4k uploads :)

  4. I live in the UK and I don't watch TV anymore these days. I just watch on-demand content online nowadays. That's £150 to spend elsewhere like PC parts.
