Weather Channel Steals A Taofledermaus Video

First NBC stole a video of his, now the weather channel pulled a jack move:

The stolen “Coke V.S. Molten Lead” video in question you can watch here.  The weather channel “version” you can google because I’m not linking them.

HAM-John-C-ReillyThe funniest part is the the weather channel actually still exists.  If I want to know the weather I just look at Google Now on my phone, or at the very most type “weather XXXXX” and google tells me it.

My second questions is how is the molten lead and coke experiment even remotely related to weather?  Starry Night?  Like the weather being nice enough to see the stars?  Yea even that’s a stretch.  Basically what it amounts to is a site that’s running very low on 2015 and beyond relevance, needs to start ranking in google by talking about random shit.

I can’t see this ending well for the weather channel if Taofledermaus choose to get a lawyer involved.  He has emails and everything…

Thoughts?

IP theft is becoming the norm. I caught some non-profit stealing one of my videos. They just put their intro on my work and reuploaded it. It’s far worse when media outlet steals from you.

Painful. I hate dirty practices like that.

Looks like they took the video down. The links to the video now lead to a 403 page and the June 12th video is missing from the Warp series page.

I sorta hope Mr. Flatermouse takes them to the cleaners on this lawsuit!

Then, when he’s rolling in the Weather Channel Benjamins, he can afford something other than a Glock!

*Ohhhhh….*

This former SOWT says…

The Weather Channel went the way of MTV, VH1, and the History Channel long ago when “reality TV” became the de-facto programming. Now it’s mostly full of jackwagons chasing tornados, jackwagons wearing goggles creaming their drawers over thunder snow (as an aside I met Jim Cantore once while in the Air Force. He is indeed just as much an overhyping annoyance as he seems), and jackwagons trying to tell us the apocalypse is upon us because an imaginary .1 inch rise in sea level.

Would not operate with The Weather Channel. Would operate against The Weather Channel. Gratis…

LOL I googled “Thunder snow” and it came up with this Jim Cantore video – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=POsOJTfBIs4 Hilarious / annoying.

Any insight on the Halliburton weather machine? :P

Brian Williams bought it. Gonna create a hurricane in his parlor room, report on it live to Jon Stewart, and completely redeem himself. Jim Cantore will show up at this house, but will not be allowed in. He will instead turn on the sprinkler system, don his goggles, and bask in his own hype. It’s what keeps him alive.
