    You know what's also a corporation? Half as Interesting. And we don't care about you™. That's why we exploit our viewers by having them suggest video topics to us, instead of just doing it ourselves. We'd rather spend time in our money jacuzzi instead. If we use the topic a viewer suggests, all we do is send them a free HAI t-shirt. Great deal! If you're interested in providing us with free labor, suggest an HAI topic here: docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfUdlvw6YgU44J8AnM2U_ZvRMyvh_CUM51LYSqF5nYJB9d1-w/viewform?usp=sf_link Also in the vein of a corporation that only cares about money (and not about you, or anyone else), turns out another ALther made a video about this, like, a week ago. That video wasn't the inspiration for this, and I'd never watched it, but I'm guessing that it was the inspiration for the viewer who suggested this topic. We did do, as now always do, a quick search through to see that no channels with high-audience overlap have done a similar video recently, and saw this video, but I, in my infinite wisdom, completely missed that the other video was uploaded very recently, assumed it was a much older one, and I hadn't heard of the channel, so I figured it wouldn't be repetitive for our audience or cannibalistic for the other creator. If you want to see that other video, which goes into a little more detail, here it is: althe.info/number/vqSZeGSAe4ZtdLY/video

    any chance that you make the same video about germany...? brd (federal republic of germany) finanz (finance) gmbh (coorp) it even has a tax id, which it is actually not supposed to have as a part of the state, but the state itself has a tax id too. and none of these tax id's are anywhere near 0000 or 0001.

    Check who owns CBA. Also check who are the shareholders of CBA. The CBA that "merged" with the Bank known as the Victorian State, Bank, whilst Westpac Banking Corporation(WBC) was applying to "change the Victoria's planning scheme. With Forgery of signatures and Fraud, WBC was incorporated , illegally in Victoria. The "Government", are the share holders of the "associated services", in Australia. These services , include, ATO, Courts and...so on. Beyond that check if WBC, paid its liability ....in their application to be in Australia. Then , we can talk about ....legallity

    Austalia is not a U.S. corporation! Australia filed a 18-k Foreign Governments form with the U.S. SEC to allow Australian Government Bonds to be tradeable on the U.S. Exchange for a period of time. You don't need to be incorporated as a company to trade bonds...

    Some historians say that the United States of America is financially owned by England because, near the conclusion of the American Civil War, the US Government needed a financial "bail out", and so, it was the British who "came to the rescue" and covered America's debts. In the course of all of that, America was turned into a Corporation, under the simple name "United States". Look it up.

    I've always wondered why people would say Australia isn't real, and doesn't exist. I've seen a few people say as much on the internet over the years. I honestly thought it was some kind of weird joke, or meme, that I was unaware of. When i finally found out that people legit thought that, a couple years ago, I was floored! I've been meaning to look more into it ever since, and haven't gotten around to it as of yey. So glad i stumbled across thia video, though. At least it will give me some answers.

    1. Filing with the US SEC does not establish or incorporate anything. However, only registered agents can trade securities. 2. The Australian Government filed with a Form 18-k Foreign Governments, not a Form 10-k U.S. Company. 3. The Australian Government Guarantee Scheme, which this registration was for, ended in 2015.

    Australia is legally an American Corporation. Iceland is legally a British Supermarket Corporation. Not really Iceland is a name trademarked in the EU for a British supermarket company that is separate from the country until Iceland (the country) sued Iceland (the company) for the name in 2016 and won in 2019 so Iceland (the company) lost the trademark for their name because Icelandic companies where "bullied" by Iceland (the company) for using their country's name. Yes Iceland (the country) actually used "bullied" in court.

    Using expressVPN to circumvent Netflix’s geolocation streaming violates the terms and services you agree to when you sign up and if they catch you they will void your subscription. Netflix has to abide by these geolocational streaming guidelines based on where they’re legally allowed to distribute content due to copyright licensing so there’s no way Netflix will ever be ok with this. I’m surprised that expressVPN is cool with you advertising their product in this way tbh
