As an example, the information on molten iron isn't political...
Ah, yes, but red molten iron is better than blue molten iron. :D Just kidding!

Not a problem, because that's true. If you get molten iron to a blue heat, it's way too hot. :lol:

In my years of refining, I also refined platinum and palladium. Melting platinum is an experience that's hard to forget. Dazzling white heat that radiates and causes "sun burn". I can't imagine a higher temperature.

Advertisers are targeting social media because it is free. Whenever anythying is free, it won't stay that for long.

I use an extension for Firefox that strips out the YouTube ads and sponser vids on the fly. I can look up what it is later if anyone is interested.

Please do. I often listen to music on YouTube. They've started interrupting songs mid-coarse for 5 second ads. What a shameless bunch of greedy people they have become.

Have you tried Spotify? They have the largest selection of music I have ever seen.Just type in a name and immediately you will have hundreds of recordings to choose from, all organized into albums. https://www.bing.com/search?q=spotify&c ... A1&PC=U531

Heh! No, and I've never heard of it. :shock:

Thanks for the link, which I will explore soon. Quite busy right now and don't have the time to explore, but it's sure to be a hit with me and my wife.

Or deezer, similar product but with even more songs or at least the last time I checked.
Get the paid subscription though as they both insert ads for the free versions
