Pet peeves – Wikipedia, sites, videos, classes, universities, schools – talking about things that could easily be shared for real

Samuel, I hesitate to reply to many of your comments because in Videos 3-7, I cover a lot of issues and resolve them. I am not even sure what still remains to be done. All I can suggest is you keep a log of your specific people where they might need a deeper look. If

Comment on a video about making your own butter, is it cost effective in the United States?
