  1. Is that an officially released NASA jacket or just a white rain shell with patches and text?

  2. Don’t know who might see this here, but having bad grades or test scores doesn’t preclude college. It might preclude college for now, but not forever. I would encourage people to seek out internships and other experience however they can. Take two years, build up some experience, and then apply to college. Often, programs will accept people who have done interesting things because they’ll be valuable students and bring more to the program.

  3. Sorry – but it took me a while before I was able to watch this video, but I wanted to be able to focus on the message.

    I agree with a lot of the YouTube comments related to the inappropriate commercials in this video and had a little cringe at the stumble before the first break (but understand it was raining). However, the final message was fantastic!!!

    This speech should be a staple and a D-Mark for the Tested channel throughout the year. I appreciate almost every video you do, but your focus should be on the core of this message.

    Love you guys and all that you do, even if I am a little to the “right” of Adam.

    Back catalogue Tested premium videos being put on YouTube and no new content for us 🙁

    Also been asking for like 5 years for Chromecast support for your premium video web player, still waiting 🙁

  5. The last premium build video was 2 months ago. 🙁 Please at least tell us what your plans are or what the trouble is. I’m considering cancelling my subscription if this continues for another month. Because I’m sorry but what’s the point? Also please close the forums already. No one has taken care of the forums for years and it’s just an embarrassing collection of spam and bugs now. Restrict all posting and commenting to premium members only to get rid of spam. It’s harsh but effective. I don’t want to whine. I want to support this site and the awesome people behind it so I really hope things improve.

  6. I’m “replying to author” in the hope that someone who works for Tested will actually read this.

    I really want to echo the other comments here about Premium content. Honestly it’s been very little content lately, premium or otherwise. And nothing for Premium members for nearly two months? If you guys are working on some ambitious stuff that takes time to produce, give us an update. If not, what’s the deal? And the forums are a huge mess right now. I’d hate to see them go away but if you are going to host a community, it needs to be maintained.

    I’m an independent maker and educator, and my time and money are valuable. This place has done fantastic work, both before and after, Adam (and I guess the Jamie and Adam’s Tested era), but if you don’t value our contributions to this community, monetary or otherwise, I can take my time and money elsewhere.
