A YouTube channel -- that's a GREAT idea!!
How about if you take responsibility for setting up and managing the
entire YouTube project. Set up the channel, do the marketing, sell
the ads, and pay yourself a percentage of the proceeds.
Let me know how it's going, and also let me know when you need input
Thanks for a GREAT idea!!
Oh MAN....!!!! <face palm!>
OK,.. I *will* think about it,.. but it REALLY ain't likely. <chuckle!>
..'though that little brain-fart regarding the MSF (Meowist Sinicization Force) is rather intriguing.

How much was Cassandra worth as a human being? She was ridiculed when
she predicted the fall of Troy. After her predictions came true, she
was assaulted and raped. Then she became the slave and mistress of
the Greek king Agamemnon. She warned Agamemnon that if they return to
Greece then his wife, Clytemnestra, will kill them both. Agamemnon
did not believe her and they returned to Greece, where Clytemnestra
killed them both.
So Cassandra was ALSO a completely worthless human being, who
accomplished nothing that anyone valued.
The character flaw, as it were, of Cassandra was that she couldn't shut the hell UP!
YOU don't NEED to have that flaw. You may HAVE that flaw, I really don't know, but Cassy apparently didn't see that flaw in herself and spent her time flappin' her gums when she should have done nearly anything but what she did do.
So, don't be THAT Cassandra,.. be your own kind of Cassandra.
And I don't quite agree with you that she was a completely worthless human being, as she became a very long lasting object example/lesson of what NOT to do with information that nobody will believe, even though it's true info.
Didn't the freakin' gods actually TELL her that her predictions were both truly accurate AND unbelievable by others? They apparently didn't also tell her, explicitly, that she didn't NEED to talk about what she knew, and she apparently was not smart enough, or too "compassionate for those affected by her unbelievable info" to keep her big mouth SHUT and use the info in more "productive" ways.
She's proved to be of great value to you, and me, and several others, I imagine, as an example of what not to do.
So don't do that, and do something "more productive".
