I should clarify that by "out of ideas", I mean that I've only got enough to last me until the end of March, or maybe the middle of April if lockdown eases. The way I work, that's close enough that I start to get worried.

Tom, Nostalgia for a thing that never existed is what Vaporwave is.

Anemoia is almost a good enough word for "nostalgia for a thing that never existed" because if it has never existed, then one can certainly have nostalgia for that thing they never experienced.

Hey Tom, there's a town in South Devon called Decoy. There is a local legend that it was built specifically to convince the Luftwaffe to drop bombs on them instead of Plymouth. I was always skeptical, but could be worth a look!

Is it just me or does "rhe white cube at the end of the world" make anyone else think of the "Ice cube project"... I think that is what it is called... I think they were trying to find out more about Neutrinos? Likely not a video option. But really interesting and worth reading into in my opinion

Also it’s funny you said you don’t think there’s a word for nostalgia for something that doesn’t exist, but actually in welsh there’s this word, ‘hiraeth’, which doesn’t translate, but sort of means a longing to go back to either wales, or a place/time that doesn’t exist!

Plot twist: The AI is from an alternate universe which is why it had prompts for things that don’t exist, it is slowly creating a portal for the universe it came from and by telling prompts of things from that universe, once it has told enough alternate universe prompts, a portal will open and the alternate universe will take over our universe

2:54 Oh wow, that's actually quite accurate, coming from someone who knows the area. Edit: Damn, there's some good ones in here. The Village That Was Saved By Synchronised Traffic Lights: Sounds like any village, on any given day honestly. Cars can cause some havoc if the traffic lights stop displaying what they should. The White Cube At The End Of The World: Huh. So, an ice cube? Maybe a sugar cube? Sounds like the beginning of a sci fi film to me. The Sanity-Defying Crossroads on the Isle Of Skye: Who the hell can figure out how crossroads work anyway, right? I'd say just use GPS, but that explains what makes it so sanity-defying. How a Secret Gadget in The Beam of The Olympic Stadium Helped Deliver Britain's Medals: What, are aliens beaming down Olympic medals now? The Long Forgotten History of the British Moon Landings: Huh. It's right, I certainly don't remember the Brits ever landing on the moon. Seems like something that I would remember... The Island With a Gravity Defying Vertical Mountain: I love that it has to specify that the mountain is vertical. As if there's any doubt that the mountain isn't somehow on its side. Honestly, THAT would be more gravity defying. The Strange Light That Floats Over Oxfordshire: The sun? Maybe the moon? I dunno, a street lamp? The Lost Village of Lofthouse That's Now Invisible: Explains how we managed to lose it. Are we sure it didn't just get demolished and the owner's in denial? The Dream of a Russian Utopia in East Yorkshire: The only thing fictional about this story is the fact that the Russians haven't been able to make it happen yet.
