Doesn’t seem to work anymore.

Edit: same issue for the link right after the one I responded to as well.

They’re still working for me. Maybe the issue is your VPN or a browser extension.

TikTok cares a lot more about their mobile app than their website, so opening in the app can also fix stuff.

If I add random numbers to the video ID, I get “Video currently unavailable” not 404. I think I’ve seen “Video currently unavailable” before when a video is deleted by the creator and/or by TikTok.

If I change the word “video” in the url to “blah” then I can get a 404.

Works for me as well now when I use my computer (404 was on iPad).

A viewpoint from another field on problem solving.


If you want to be really good at something and make discoveries, you should care a lot about understanding tiny details and getting them right.






Social status competitions (plus sexism).


More IT help tickets.


I think it may be harder to get Paths Forward for stuff like this today (unless you can go viral on social media).

He’s repeatedly doing a sequence of two attacks (with a tiny walk forward after the second attack to reset his attacks and avoid the third one in the sequence). The green wind animation for an attack doesn’t always happen after he does this a few times (in other words, you see one green sphere instead of two in a row). The sound still plays. If I had to guess, the attack still happens and does damage – it’s just a visual bug – though that’d be worth testing.

Non-crypto fraud.



Be wary of paying huge amounts of money for college enabled by loans.

Thomas Szasz warned us about anti-suicide stuff.

Psychiatrists have often violated confidentiality when they found it convenient. In “The myth of psychotherapy”, Chapter 10, Section V Szasz wrote:

In his “On the History of the Psycho-Analytic Movement,” Freud resorts to an extremely revealing tactic in trying to destroy Jung as a modern psychotherapist by identifying him as just another old-fashioned pastor: he quotes the confidential communications of a patient who had been a former patient of Jung’s.
