Could it be that YouTube is experiencing it's own "integer rollover"?

No--and that wasn't what I was getting at. I was saying that I got called a racist for talking about India in the Civ games.

This ties in to the point that we live in a stupid age (which makes me wonder if human society hasn't always been stupid).

EDIT: also:

Still the most epic integer rollover:


Chicken-feed!

This is the most epic rollover:

And the idiocy continues...

I was watching this Timeline documentary (great stuff if you want to learn about British history):


Which is a solid 53+ minutes runtime, when THIS came up as an advert:


Which is not only less than 5 minutes shorter than the video it's an ad in, it absolutely reeks of scam.

There is effectively no security in the SMS transmission system.  It is quite possible to both insert messages and access messages in the system.  Worse, you don't even need to access the server network, as SMS is routed to any device showing the correct SIM code, without any mechanism to verify wether or not the message actually reaches any such device.

Another good choice for an access token system is the tried and true RSA tokens.  These appear to be the same devices that Blizzard Entertainment uses for their 2FA.  (At least, they appear to be identical and function indistinguishably.)

All the usual pundits insisted that the corporate tax cuts wouldn't result in money coming back to the US or any such things as large corporations raising wages or handing their employees bonuses.  Rightup  until they started to do both of those things.  This is rather like how the actual taxes paid by corporate executives radically rose when Regan cut personal tax rates and suddenly it became much more attractive for those executives to take lots of cash instead of company provided cars, housing, and use of the corporate jet (which were tax-free benefits) and instead use the larger cash payments to buy the housing, cars, and travel they preferred instead of the somewhat less personalized options companies formerly provided.  (Oh, yes, this is why senior executives still lived incredibly swanky lives in the insane personal tax regime of the 1950's, it was all paid by the company as 'benefits' of executive positions.  Just giving them money is a whole lit simpler than having to maintain the assets required to provide those benefits.  And most of them didn't really get what they wanted since you couldn't get a Park Avenue penthouse if the company you worked for didn't happen to own any or it was reserved for someone in a different position.)

Probably not.

They ran into that problem in 2014 with the view count on Gangnam Style going past 2^31, and now use 64-bit integers for at least some counts.

(Now, why they used a SIGNED integer for a quantity which is, by definition, never negative is a completely different puzzle.)

May as well throw this in since it seems relevant to the discussion.  Recently YouTube has seen fit to show me two ads for each ad space. Maybe this has to do with the fact that I hit skip a lot, especially if the ad is too long and/or its in a bad part of the video and/or I've already seen the ad enough times.

...Now that I've typed that out, YT's ad behavior seems even more asinine. Huh.

We live in an age where you can get flagged as a racist for stating that you should attack the Indians in Civilization (from first to most recent versions), before they reach the modern era...why are you looking for sense?

A TWENTY MINUTE AD???

I've always thought there should be something that said that the ad can't be longer than the video you're wanting to watch, but even by that standard this is just losing the plot!
