4:00 That’s the norm. Even in every county jail. 23 hours in your cell alone, and 1 hour out a day... which they break up into two 1/2 hours. So you don’t even get a nice long full hour out of your cell. So that’s not even “terrible and abnormal”.. that’s literally the norm in even a county jail. LOL

Since nobody knows or cares about what goes on in prisons, anything is possible. Some criminals might arguably deserve whatever horrifying nightmares they might be suffering but it's rather hypocritical to permit prison guards to do things to prisoners that would normally get them arrested and sent to prison. It's not something I want my tax dollars to pay for. Life in prison is a pointless and unnecessary expense. Those whose crimes are so bad that they can never be free again should simply be put to death.

I’ve seen the Supermax prison a few times. I have family in Colorado, so we like to see stuff we don’t have in Texas. We could actually see the snipers in the towers.

The United States only releases statistical census data for the first 70-years. So, if you want to see all the people that lived in your great-grandparent's house in 1960 you will have to wait until 2030 for that honor. With that privacy in mind, it isn't really surprising the Vatican doesn't make records available until well after the individuals they pertain to have passed on. Yes, Pius the XII is gone, but there could easily be people still alive named in documents from the period. In the overall scheme of things, 80-years really isn't that long.

adx is also where the whistleblowers and other such political opponents are sent just to isolate them from potential followers. So in many ways a much less pleasant version of the Bastille for future american revolutionaries to burn down as the old regime is replaced.

I worked as a VP at a Wall STreet NYC Bank for 28 years. Fom time to time groups of us were sent to the Federal Reserve bank to count old Bars fro on country or another that were stored there. When you enter te vault jackets are off sleeves rolled up as you count the bars one at a time you tuch them another two people list them by serial numbers on the bars. When finished they scrape godl dust off your fingeres place it in an envelope with stays in the vault wild!

8:43 All I would have to do is follow someone after they leave the car park and Force them to give up their code and ticket and use that to get their car. I could have someone else hold them so they can't go for help and take the car to a separate location.or a big enclosed truck lined with aluminum foil so no GPX systems could detect where the vehicle has gone and where it would end up at. Once this has been done a different vehicle would go pick up the other guy and they would leave the victim tied up and in a ally. If I was looking for high end vehicles to chop ro resale I'd make shore I could get what I wanted without any trace.

I like your videos and thank you for what you do. To offer some feedback, I would say that most of the time you’re very easy to understand, but sometimes you’re like an auctioneer. Please try to keep the pace consistent as some of the words are a blur when you speak as fast as I do and people ask me to slow down constantly.

The Vaticans 75 year rule is because they do things so awful that normal people would stop following them, so they wait 75 years and then say "that was almost a century ago we would totally never do that today" and the cycle continues

When I worked as a software engineer at BYU someone came once a month to take a hard drive backup of our source code to the vault in Salt Lake. The church in general is very big on emergency preparedness, meaning that everyone should have food and water for when disaster strikes. The vault is an extension of that for keeping precious documents safe. There's nothing secret about that place. It's just an archive :D
