He is going to be responsible of thousands of peoples green lasers not working.

I gave the video a thumbs down before i even watched it.:crackup:

He just makes me :mad:.

What he meant was probably "Not true, that would make my video pointless and people would not watch it. But since it's my video, it's true if I say it is. So that makes me have a lot of views [a.k.a. Money]".

This is good thing, actually, people will go take apart their lasers and destroy them, hence increasing Kipkay's uhh... notoriety? :D
Besides, anybody who things they can get a lot of power from cheap laser deserves to get it destroyed anyhow since they obviously don't know what they are doing, and possibly pose a threat to somebody.

It's all a bunch of kids who watch his vids anyway. I noticed the safety glasses in his vid this time. At least he's kinda promoting laser safety ??

That, and a mini note in his description - I'd certainly be happier with it if he actually said a warning out loud though (but that'd make his video longer than it needs to be, and lose a few of his attention-deficit viewers in the process ;) )

The comments on that video are actually depressing to read :(

im going to do this mod and then shine it in my teachers eye :D thanks for helping me cause more trouble kippy

Yea maybe we knocked some sense in his head the last time he was on here and we were trying to help him.

Who know what kipkay was actually thinking.

Iam pretty sure there is no way that you can pot mode a Green laser from 5mW and turn it into a burning laser that can light a match.

I just noticed, his goggles don't block 808nm or 1064nm in any case ;)

(unless the mention of "+IR" on the left goggle means it's also protective against 700nm+?)

I have my doubts too, if it was that easy then what would be the point in buying the more powerful ones ??? That's like saying If I bought a 1980's Lada, tune the engine a little and it'l be as fast as a Porche :)

Pot modding a laser is almost definitely a bad idea except in some very limited circumstances. That's a well-known fact around here, and should be common sense to his viewers...

Rofl. That comment in OP was mine! *proud of self*
I then got a flood of 7-8 comments from Kipkay worshippers saying
"Kipkay owned you!"
"Kipkay is the best guy on YouTube"
etc.

532nm diodes? Really? 532nm diodes? I'd like some of these 532nm diodes, they might solve my modulation linearity iss-Oh, wait, they're modules, but KipKay's always right, isn't he? Even when he's wrong.

Damnit, give us all a break.

Stupid YouTubers are stupid. If KipKay is the best on YouTube, I have grave concerns about YouTube in general.

Also, how does his video only have 323 views, but 1400+ likes?

I give up on trying to teach them. Revision to do, and 9 hours in which to do it (before the dreaded "you may begin", that is...)

Good luck arguing with them (via PM or otherwise) - even if you make your points well, they'll still pretend that they won the argument (this actually happened twice earlier) on some unrelated point, and go on watching him cluelessly.
