Hell yeah. Nothing better than seeing someone wholeheartedly, without any sort of caveat, admit their mistakes


If everyone could reflect on new information and admit mistakes/change their opinions like this, the world would have very few problems.


few might be a stretch but far less for sure


Yeah you're right, thought about that as I clicked submit :P bit of an exaggeration.


See! Taking your own advice! There were no arguments, just new understandings! What a wonderful thing this is!


I feel like my mans knew exactly what he was doing


Yeah, this video was full of some sarcasm that isnt visible to the human eye...


Could have, but I'll just take this one at face value because why not. The fact that a comment told him to do this means that he released another serious video about his arm actually being magnetized, which I feel would be irresponsible for someone who knew exactly what they're doing Not impossible, but I like this outcome better


THIS is science. Hypothesis, test, observe, conclude. Well done!


At least, unlike many ppl, he has some sort of self awareness and realizes he’s being an idiot


Absolutely. Realising you're being an idiot is the first step to being not an idiot. I genuinely wish this dude good luck for the future, because unlike a lot of others, he's going somewhere.


In other words, there is the ignorant and there is the stupid. One does not know facts and the other is to refuse learning the facts. This dude in the video realized he was stupid but thats not always bad because he learned. Edit: I said he was stupid because he refused to learn that vaccines were causing magnets until that one light bulb moment. It would be ignorance if he refused to create any evidence. On the other hand it can still go both ways. He can be ignorant and not know facts (or just be uneducated) about vaccines. So from what I noticed he was being stupid by refusing to learn the facts that vaccines do not have magnets in them by doing the baby powder test. He learned from his mistake so he wasn’t entirely being an ignorant person so I just typed he was stupid because he refused to learn the truth about vaccines with his only evidence being his homemade project that failed. Kinda ironic but it just depends on how you view the situation it can be both but that’s just what was on the top of my head when I wrote it.


There is no worse mad man than the one who doesn't want to understand


There are none as blind as those who don't want to see.


A fellow who is always declaring he's no fool usually has his suspicions.


I pity da fool


One who names the inauthentic and pedantic genuine, needs to get a friggin grip.


This reminded me of a part of a song from POTF that says "you cannot learn a thing you think you know"


There is a certain American cult that is actively aggressive about it.


There are *a lot* of stupid intellectuals who would provide brilliant erudite reasons why the baby powder demagnetized them (rather than accept they had believed something dumb).


why wouldn't they just put the baby powder in the vaccine to stop people from getting magnetic in the first place unless they wanted us all magnetized, wake up


Well actually, the powder reversed the polarity of his skin. Notice that he is using a magnet to try to prove that he is magnetic. This will work if the magnet he is using has the opposite polarity of the vaccine induced magnetism. He applies the baby powder, which is primarily made from talc - which has a high magnesium content. Magnesium has high magnetic properties, from which the name magnet is derived. It is random if the powder is positive or negative, so sometimes attaching a magnet to your body will work after getting the vaccine, and sometimes it won't. I would encourage the believer in the video to try again with a few different bottles of baby powder to find one that has the correct polarity. More information [can be found at this link.](https://youtu.be/djV11Xbc914)


Talc on me… talc me on!!!!


[hesitantly clicking link...] Oh thank God.


I took a peek at the url and it wasn't rick roll, was pleasantly surprised at the results.


[Here's another link on the subject that might interest you.](https://youtu.be/u1ZvPSpLxCg)


[I was disappointed that the link wasn’t to their best song…](https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=CsHiG-43Fzg)


Joke's on you, I fuckin' love that song.


Baby powder is cornstarch now


My junior co-workers screw up sometimes and I usually have to fix their mistakes, when they apologize I always say, did you learn something? If so don't worry about it. We all screw up sometimes. Just don't keep making the same mistake. I also have good advice for anyone who is a trainer, this is the speach I give all my trainee's, it makes them less nervous and keeps them in the right mindset:. (the job is a machine operator in a factory) after your training you are not an operator, and I tell you this so you don't try to hold yourself to my standards, you have only been doing this for a few days/weeks. Being good takes years. So don't ever try to compare yourself to me or any other person doing this job for years, it's not fair to yourself. You can get to this point if you work at it. And never let other people get to you because you are inexperienced, because they forget that they had no clue when they first started.


You're such a genuinely good person. Not just a good boss. Hope you know that


I want to be like that


Thanks, I have to work with them every day. So their ability to do the job makes my life easier in the long run. So it's also a bit selfish on my part. But you have to motivate them in the right way. Treating someone inexperienced like shit will hamper their potential. Giving someone someone confidence and the tools to ignore the jerks helps them more than anything in my experience. Another good teaching method is, if your inexperienced co-worker asks for help with a problem, ask them what they think may solve the issue. Like you are bouncing ideas back and forth. Even if you know how to fix it. Let them find the solution with a little guidance. Because they may have the right idea and are just afraid to make a mistake. When they come up with the solution it gives them more confidence and is easier to remember in the future. Another good tip is when they inevitably mess something up due to inexperience don't ever make them feel dumb. I tell them I can't count the amount of times I did that myself, hell I still do it every so often. It lets them know we all screw up. I also like to make a joke out of it. Like I'm the only one that gets to screw that up, that's my thing. Find your own mistakes. Or I tell them who ever trained you (me) did a shity job and shouldn't be allowed to train anyone else. Basically call their trainer (me) all kinds of names. It breaks the tension of a mistake.


Fuck man, HELL YEAH! I have nothing else (productive) to say.


He Might be an idiot, but he’s not stupid


I Give him credit he owned it and didn’t just go on a some BS rant and change the subject


I was expecting some additional mental gymnastics, like they're watching my tik tok and turned the electromagnet off or some shit. This didn't have a high enough difficulty rating to get a perfect 10 in the mental gymnastics Olympic finals.


I'm surprised these people aren't saying "baby powder neutralizes the magnetism"


I am a doctor of magnetology and fully support these peoples informed and logical conclusion. /s


Only for the Johnson and Johnson vaccine /s


They also make baby powder… WHOS PAYING YOU?!


If you're a Doctor of Magnetology I have a question. I know these two guys, Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope, and they've been wondering how magnets work since 2009. Can you help these two clowns out?


They said they don't wanna listen to a scientist though because they always be lyin' and getting them pissed.


They also cancelled the gathering of the juggalos in 2020 due to covid 19 and said 100% it isn’t worth their family’s (the juggalos’) lives to have the event and they would always prioritize safety of the fans and families above all else, and advised their fans if they were true juggalos they wouldn’t either. This was early in the pandemic when everyone was mostly on board with the safety precautions so they may have changed their tune since then, but the cancellation announcement was strongly worded indicating that they took it pretty seriously


Juggalos are an odd and very diverse group of people. You're just as likely to run into a Trump supporter as your are to find a Bernie supporter, and every single one of them is chill about it. You could see two get into a heated argument and then 10 mins later they'll be doing whippets together and saying "I love you bro". As such it's very hard to judge them, and in a way it's admirable. Also it's possible the line from the song was just about something specific. Its from 2009, so who knows anymore. It's possible they've changed over 11 years of being made fun of over that line.


Hi Doctor, fucking magnets, how do they work?


“Its true because of all the heavy metals that are in the baby powder. Heavy metals will reverse the magnetic polarity of the vaccine and cause the magnetic field to shut down.” I just felt so gross writing that but I’m sure we will see something like that written by a non-cognitive wonderland kid


The problem is people think out loud for a face-saving explanation, and then remove the “what if” and post it boldly.


You just gave them their next argument. Great work...


Baby powder is just minerals! Minerals are well known magnetic shielding agent by the new world order to protect their demon masters from gods power! /s


I kinda figured he knew it wouldn't work and was trying to rope in people that would believe this stuff and then handily prove them wrong.


Exactly. A real believer in that would have come up with 10 excuses on the spot why it didn't happen




Which lets be clear, is *extremely effective*. Making *yourself* into the fool disarms people rather than putting them on the defensive. It may seem counter-intuitive, but people often learn better by seeing themselves in a learner rather than being the target of the education directly. edit: typo


yeah if that were the case it'd actually be brilliant. but I did search out his tiktok, he's not some crazy antivaxxer or anything (obviously, he got it) but he did think it might actually be magnetic. Thought that there might be some kind of magnetic particles or iron pooling together at the injection site which isn't the dumbest thing i've ever heard before.


Yup, that was a Stealth PSA 100%


I suspect your right, as to prove it he must have had the jab in the first place, probable just trolling them. That or reddit as I see alot of comments here that seem to have swallowed this whole.


Obviously we're all reading more into it than is entirely reasonable, but it seems to me like he's not someone who generally believes that bullshit, but he'd tried sticking something to his arm and gotten a bit freaked when it stuck.


He 1000% knew that this wouldn’t work, it’s designed to rope people in who assume that it would.




Right? Like, I've never used TikTok but I assume there's an option to not upload a video. It's not like this was some live that was captured.


Alternatively, he could have chosen to upload it for the same reason he offered the public apology: Basic honesty. I know intellectual honesty isn't as common as I would like it to be, but I'd like to at least believe it *does* exist.


Yeah its decent acting


I don't know the context, but surely he's poking fun at the actual idiots that think the vaccine makes one magnetic?


I agree. But don't call me Shirley.


Yeah, I could potentially be friends with this guy. Being wrong is fine, being confidently wrong is less fine but it's acceptable, being provably wrong and just acting like the reason you *really* won is over your opponent's head is intolerable. He chose wisely.


These people are so stupid . The tracker is your cellphone you idiots .


You’re 100% correct. We all just agreed to it in the EULA we didn’t read.


He owned up to it


Agreed, I respect this dude a lot. Seeing people admit they were wrong is so rare anymore.


For sure - changed his views based on new data. I respect the hell outta this dude.


If you want to always be right you must always be ready to change your mind


That's to be eventually be less wrong There's no always being right, there's always believing you are right, but that's achieved in the opposite way to what you described


Oh shit you right. And now I am too. See how this works?




It may just be me, but it seems like the video is tongue-in-cheek. Just the way he looks up and says "I would like to issue a public apology" seems to well-timed and well-delivered not to be intentionally funny.


Exactly. Way too much self-awareness in the dude’s part . The typical bellends would just double down


It’s such an admirable trait


I feel like when i was younger people were more willing to admit they were wrong. Ending there stance with a joke or something.


I think it's being younger and knowing you don't know everything. Being a little older now I feel like I'm supposed to know more. There's nothing wrong with not knowing or learning something. It's foolish to think we can know everything about anything and it needs to be more socially acceptable to own up to it


I'm the wisest of all the Greeks because I know that I know nothing. - Socrates Even how old you get, you can never know everything. Especially at the rate everything evolves.


I don't begrudge people believing all sorts of moronic, stupid shit, but I do begrudge them ignoring reality to avoid changing their minds.


Which is admirable, no doubt.


A lesser would have just made stuff up about baby powder.


the ingredients used in baby powder have very well known anti-magnetic properties. this is why baby's arent supposed to have MRI's


Holy fuck I can’t tell if you’re joking and I think that means it’s time for us all to just nuke each other and let earth start over


I think that's a bit extreme, but I kind of want to be involved in something important, so I'll go along with you on this one.


You do realize tho, that dimes have no magnetic metal in them. They are like 95% copper and 5% nickel.


If you're referring to the guy in the video, that's a magnet, not a dime. He says so in a previous video (where he didn't use baby powder). In fact, he called it a "powerful" magnet.


No matter how dumb people can act, no matter how stupid some shit is that someone can say, they always deserve respect when they own up to their own mistakes or misguided ways.


Unfortunately the damage has often been done, this retraction vid won't go viral like the initial vid will have done. A newspaper can splash false, damaging info over a couple of pages and then print a tiny retraction on the bottom of a page no one will read.


Oh, absolutely. Respect doesnt mean a person should not face consequences, but respect can always be earned. Maybe not by previous actions, but by accepting said consequences.


There's no way this isn't scripted, or else he'd be too ashamed to release the clip. I still like how he delivers the message to all those nutjobs who actually bought into the bs.


Plus, if he thinks the vaccine is harmful and magnetifies you, you don't get yourself a vaccine


That’s why I don’t believe it. Those kind of people (q-anon, Trump supporters, Anti-vax, etc.), do not tend to own up to being wrong and do not tend to reassess and think critically about their position on an issue when new information comes into play. It’s for a good purpose but he definitely didn’t believe all that shit beforehand.


100% agree. He didn't believe that bs in the first place.


Good man, he admitted to being wrong :)


He just did science. Tested his hypothesis and accepted the results when it was wrong haha.


We need to teach that in schools


I keep getting the feeling that a lot of people who are becoming adults never did science in school.


Talcum powder? Everybody knows asbestos blocks magnetic fields!


It's actually his lack of faith. If he only believed he was a magnet.


J&J were so ahead of their time they gave the asbestos to infants. Bloody brilliant.


I love that he had the balls to own his mistake 😂.


Agreed!! Much respect to him.


Or maybe the whole thing was an act?




Humour isn’t Reddit’s strongpoint


Exactly my thoughts, just parodying all the other actual idiots.


It very obviously is.


What I don’t understand is if these people believe this shit, why did they get the vaccine in the first place?


They think they can sue and get money or something. Some need it to keep their jobs, I think. But again they're taking the vaccine, let them think whatever they want.


Even someone getting the vaccine for thr dumbest reason means they're still getting the vaccine.


The whole thing was an act..


Yeah but it was such a dumb fucking thing to claim to begin with. Anyone with half a brain knows a shot can’t magnetize you. This isn’t a superhero movie.


Hey, let’s be honest, some people aren’t very smart. At least he admitted to his own mistake.


no, you need an immortal nazi mutant to shoot your mother in front of you for that to happen.


Honest quest because it to dumb of idea to look up. But what reason are people claiming "they" are magnetizing us for? Like what advantage goes that have for anyone?


It's the microchip conspiracy. People are "proving" they have microchips in their arms by putting magnets on their arm, claiming it's sticking to the chip.


I think it's turning to a game of telephone. Starts with a magnet to stick on the chip, then the chip is magnetic, which is somehow becoming that your whole body becomes magnetic since the way people get things to stick can work anywhere on your body. so a correlation is observed and therefore proves their leap in thought. At least this seems the most logic I can muster from this....


Shit, just go to /r/conspiracy. This is probably the *least* dumb thing that these paranoid kooks believe about the vaccine.


I'm so mad about that sub. I just want aliens, sasquatch, and shit like that. Fucking sub went over the cuckoos nest.


I just browsed around for about 15 mins since I haven't peeked into that dumpster fire since the election cycle and I just don't understand how those people's brains operate


It so they can track us apparently.


Weird, Seems like alot of work when the phone that I pay for can already do that.


Makes people feel better to think they’ve been chipped rather then tracked via the device you pretty much have on you at all time and pay for that keeps your bank details and all your texts and phone calls.


What was it, main character syndrome? A non-zero number of these conspiracy theorists believe that they are important enough to be directly and specifically targeted by the government or whichever evil entity they're claiming.


Why? How did people come up with the idea that the vaccine makes you magnetic on that one small spot of your arm?? What possible utility could the government do with this???


Because of the “microchip”


Microchips are mainly silicon which is not magnetic


you're seven levels of thought beyond anyone thinking that a vaccine contains a microchip capable of tracking them


I work in a animal shelter and we microchip animals we adopt out. I've had quite a few think it was to track them via GPS and have to educate them that "no, it's so that we can scan them and find your info and return them to you..."


If only people realized how far we are from developing a microchip capable of receiving a GPS signal, transmitting a radio signal, and powering itself, small enough to fit into an injectable.


Yea its literally a lil microchip the size of a grain of rice that has a RFID code that's it.


Right! It doesn't even have any of the actual info on your pet on it, it just contains a serial number that needs to be looked up after the fact. RFID is neat, but it's no where near as scary as people think it is.


Well, most people don't even realize that GPS is one way communication from the satellites to the receiver.


Much less, that all it [basically] is, is a few dozen clocks floating through space.


Well, several clocks.


And they don't even realize the phone or whatever electronic device they're using to spread this misinformation is also tracking them.


Yes but the gold on the pcb is... Wait but the lead based solder is.... Wait maybe the rf transmitter is......


Bro the reason why there's a microchip shortage is because all of the silicon is being used to put into the vaccine microchips, WAKE UP SHEEPLE!!! I WANT MY 3080!


I'm guessing that wasn't an obvious connection for a small percentage of the population.


I really want to know who thinks up these things. It has to be someone who is trolling and just making shit up to be funny, or someone with a mental illness who says these things and other people don't know well enough to dismiss it.


It’s a sad state of public education, particularly in the sciences, that this even became a thing.


Bro more importantly, even if they actually did make you magnetic, who fucking WOULDN'T WANT THAT? I can go outside again AND I CAN BE FUCKING MAGNETO? Sign me up for TWO please


>Sign me up for TWO please Good news!


I'll just be happy to have somewhere to put loose screws and not lose them.


He is obviously playing the part of a moron to get morons to watch in hopes of showing them how wrong they are and calling them an idiot. Love it!


That’s what I thought too, if someone thought they were going to be chipped or some conspiracy theory about anti vaccine they wouldn’t have gotten it to begin with lol.


He’s trying to get famous on TikTok If he believed this in the beginning, he wouldn’t have posted it He’s trying to get people on Reddit to repost him and talk about how nice it is that he’s willing to admit his mistake, and go viral since this is a huge topic that people really get a kick out of feeling superior about I think anyone who believes the vaccine contains a microchip or is magnetic is completely ridiculous, but the dude knew what he was doing


Agreed. If he truly believed in this, he wouldn't have posted the video proving him wrong. He made the choice to post this.


And it's fucking working. I can't believe I had to scroll so far to find this. It's pretty obvious what he's doing, he's not even a good actor, or remotely convincing/sincere about it. The whole thing just screams staged just like everything else that comes out of the cesspool that is tiktok. Reddit has become polluted with gullible ass people upvoting things that don't even remotely resemble how a normal person would react or respond to things. Sorry for being bitter but the amount of people using their rational brain on reddit is becoming more and more scarce, and I'm disappointed that my happy place is slowly becoming a garbage pit. Edit: I think I'm upset because I'm starting to realize I might have to make friends in real life... * *cries in introvert* *


Yeah. I am surprised this wasn't obvious to more people.


Had to scroll way too far to find this


For those that didn’t get the news the guy is “owning up” because it’s a satirical video making fun of [this](https://www.google.de/amp/s/www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/vaccine-nurse-magnetic-fail-ohio-b1863611.html%3famp) woman.


Yeah the way she failed and still confidently asked "any questions?" is what I expect an anti-vaxxer's response to their mistake. You just had a sweaty chest, madam.


Ok, thanks for the this comment. When I watched this video, it seemed like an obvious parody. Then everyone was giving this guy props for “owning up” and I thought I was the dumb one.


Seriously, how can so many people buy this. Idiots that think vaccines make you magnetic would never back from it that easily. And they for sure would never apologize. True facepalm really is in the comments


They would never get themself a vaccine in the first place...


That too


It hurts that I had to scroll into the depths here to find a comment stating the obvious. Anyone who actually believes that a vaccine can make you magnetic wouldn't turn around and go "oops my B" at the first sign that it wasn't true. They're already jumping through a circus worth of mental hoops to get to that point.


Thats hilarious. Why is nobody asking questions? If this was a cartoon I'd have a big ? Above my head.


An “anti-vaxx nurse” two words that should never go together




All that iron in that dime. Lol


It looks like a battery to me


I'm 50% sure that's another magnet. Just proves him double wrong I guess


It is. I couldn’t tell on my tiny screen. Regardless. Oy. At least he realized at one point.


The real idiots are the people in this thread who really think this was an epic fail and not a staged shitty tiktok he recorded to get millions of views. I'm pretty sure he never actually believed that the magnetic thing was real


No he is an idiot since the moment he started taking the live video, the government got notified and disabled the microchip so that it would lose its magnetism. Fools, all of us are going to become robots soon.


I think the whole bit is a joke, no real antivaxer would accept they are wrong, and Idk sounded like he was joking.


No real antivaxer would vaccine himself just to prove that vaccine are harmful. That does not make sence at all


Honestly don't think this should go here dude realised he was wrong owned it and apologised


Agreed Antivaxers are pretty dumb but if you never engage them & try to educate, they will never go away This guy was open to learning & accepted he'd been proved wrong More antivaxers could learn by his example


I think it's great he owned up to it, but it's still a facepalm.


Yeah, facepalm indeed to think this in the first place. But awesome he was able to reflect and share with others to maybe prevent more facepalms in the future


Yes, agreed!


At least give the guy some credit. He tested his theory, it failed and he immediately changed his tune. If only more people were like this


Came here to say this. He changed his mind when presented with evidence that differed from his opinion. He went with the facts, which is more than a lot of people. I think that was really cool


You know what, no! That’s how its supposed to be! There are a PLETHORA of scientists out there who’s thesis melted before their eyes and they had to stop, call out their shit and move on. This right here, is how its done! You have a hypothesis, albeit not good one, but it was tested and when the results contradicted the hypothesis changes were made an addresses! This right here should be applauded, not to lower the bar (impossible these days) but to encourage ppl to think different, try shit for themselves and then, MOST IMPORTANTLY, own up to their falsehoods and rejoin the herd. Bravo!


"WELL... aktually, a paper by Dr. Naomi Wolf concludes that medicated powder blocks 5G magnetic energy and that's why it won't work with powder! Duh!" Q losers proceed to cover their entire bodies in powder all day.


Y'know you're right, this is a good example of the scientific method.


The when they grind the babies into powder it hurts them so the make lots of adrenaline. This gets absorbed through the skin and excites the magnetic crystals so they temporarily loose their magnetic properties.


Seriously, it makes me sick that they are allowed to make baby powder! Where are they even getting these babies from to make it?


They make it from secretly aborted republican children.


Have you ever tried these vegan burgers? You can barely even taste the vegan. But if it keeps the vegan populations low I’m all for it.


Noob. Everybody knows they don't grind babies down for vaccines. They dissolve them in mercury,.


Wasn't he just making fun of anti-vaxers?


Yes, this thread is embarrassing thinking he was serious lol


ITT: people not realising he’s pretending to be an idiot for tiktok


The real facepalm is this subreddit


As is tradition


I literally thought it was a joke the whole time


What are the chances these types of people are just usually sticky


That is not what this video is about at all? I follow him on tiktok and he thinks his new tattoo is magnetic.


Hey that’s me! I’m @Robbsfilms… I guess AMA?


Joke's on him. Anybody who knows anything knows that baby powder masks magnetism! /s
