All Your Comments Are Belong To Richard Feynman

Richard FeynmanHaha, this is great. FeynTube is a Greasemonkey script that does something amazing: It makes reading YouTube comments worthwhile by replacing them all with quotes from Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman.

FeynTube is a small Greasemonkey script that transforms the atrocity that YouTube comments are into reasonable and smart quotes that are actually readable without causing unexpected damage to your enjoyment, mind, temper and any vital organs (because with YouTube comments, you never know). (Greasemonkey, in turn, is a very nice Firefox extension that allows you to customize webpages.)

FeynTube achieves this accomplishment by doing the only conceivable thing: removing all YouTube comments (from your display, unfortunately they’re still on the servers) and replacing them with actual quotes from famous Nobel Prize physicist and elaborate skirt chaser Richard Feynman.

I wrote it because I actually like watching videos on YouTube, but, despite better knowledge, sometimes just couldn’t restrain myself from scrolling down and reading some of the comments–with horrible consequences. So I wrote this small script. Now, everytime I scroll down to the comment section, I can read something worthwile.
