Mohammad Usman : You need to randomly insert the Soviet anthem more.

Markus deMedeiros : $40 standard tea: Tea not included

Robert King : Enough with all the leaving the EU nonsense Theresa May, ISO 3103 is what we really should be Brexiting. I mean we're not savages, who puts the milk in first?

加藤みずっち : On behalf of Japanese, JSA or 日本規格協会 is read as Nihon Kikaku Kyoukai

Lucas : I'm brazilian. Milk is not something you put in tea.

WTD Productions : I like the comedic approach here

Dexter : poor thing... animator just wanted to buy a Nintendo Switch....:)

sfctw1 : The USSR ? **SOYUZ NJERUSHIMI .....** gotta love the memes

babelfishdude : Tea is important. USA founded its most important war on it. Wrong preparation is a sacriledge and basis for war. Hence ISO standard.

Reinis Martinsons : Try Latvian tea. You basically go to a meadow, grab a handful of weeds, pour some hot water over them and you're all set.

Doublebow : As a University student studying a science degree, I have to say, the ISO is the bane of my existence. But I also have to say why on earth is there not an ISO for plugs/ sockets and home electricity around the world. Seriously, needing a different plug to charge my shaver and toothbrush is a right pain, then if I go on holiday to the US I am expected to wait like two hours to charge my phone half way, what is this madness, everywhere needs to just use the same plug and power (preferably the UK standard unless a better alternative is available)

Mohammed Hamza : milk first should be illegal.

Chibiabos Wolf : "If you don't have $40 to send to Switzerland, send $120 for a year at Skillshare instead ..." So rich with comedy.

Betweentheatoms : i couldn't stop laughing. this is gold!

Eyal Roziner : "and, the USSR" *anthem plays* I died at this moment 😂

Rubes Aaron : As a Brit I agree that the tea goes in first IF you are pouring straight from the kettle into a cup. However in this it seems to be that the tea is put in a teapot first. In that case the ISO is right to say that the milk goes in first as this is the way I was raised to do it. So I'm not sure why a Brit would be mad at this.

Explosion Games : "becuase i hate money" boi have i got the product for you. *Communism*

Jaden Cave : why is it the ISO when it should be the IOS (International Organization for Standardization)?

Jack L : Hahahaha.. I'm pissing myself with laughter! 3:38 "DON'T PUT THE MILK IN FIRST, YA EEJIT!" Spot on response lad! hahaha!

La Sibériade : I like how this channel is slightly less serious yet extremely entertaining and covers interesting topics and has nice animations too

Joshua M : A eurocrat is a European based bureaucrat with influence over the UK. UB is just a basic definition probably from when the term first evolved, but you can use it way more than that.

e735star : Wow!! Now I know where to buy my Christmas gifts!!

SP2G 50000 : Give the animator a Nintendo Switch!

Arefin's Tech : Well that's not my cuppa tea.

iea96 : This video was absolutely brilliant! This channel keeps getting better and better!

XNDUIW Bricks : 3 of the nations no longer exist

Lip Fairilu : I love your French proununciation

Lim Ming Quan : Tom Scott. You know why.

starshipfantastica : Because I hate


colburn888 : ISO Standard for no soul: $959.00

Beetroot is a nice person : Give him his Nintendo Switch! >.>


Gaysian_american : I died at i hate money, this guy is a comedic genius

Alto Theft : You should collab with Wendover Productions. You and him might get along very well.

GooseWithDaGibus : "Because I hate money."

joseph jackson : I didn't think this channel would have such great humor

Scott Seeger : Wow, I got so excited to see you doing a video about ISO and it made me realize that is a little pathetic. But, in the Air Force we call shipping containers ISOs (eye so). For over a decade I've wondered why the International Organization for Standardization was abbreviated ISO. I've also done research online about the history of the shipping container and this topic oddly has always interested me. Thanks for the great video. How much for the coffee recipe?

ccityplanner12 : : British railways famously do not comply to ISO 668. If you gave the recipe out, would they sue you for copyright?

Douglas Rampazo : Does ISO have a standard on how to make standards for ISO standards?

ϟϟ PanzerShafter ϟϟ : USSR approved ISO standard tea? Interesting video

Han shot but Greedo didn’t shoot : No bureaucracy will ever tell ME how to drink a cup of tea, let alone do it the wrong way.

funkeymonkey : Milk first. Are you mad?

Izayoi 86 : 3:30 Cold War, Ha, More like Cold Tea.

Timmity3 : Ireland coming at the ISO with basic logic. Who the hell uses a bowl for a standard cup of tea? Why on earth would you pour the milk in first by standard? Why the hell is the pot so god damn small, while not being small enough to serve just one person?

Kyle Netherwood : The reason you wouldn't put the milk in first is so you know how much milk you need to put in judging by the colour that the milk makes the tea. Therefore, if you have exact measurements for the volume of milk you need, the order is not important.

garrett123456789t3n : ISO isn't an acronym. So you don't say the letters. It's just the short name for the International Organization for Standardization. From the Greek word isos meaning equal.

Bríon O'Sullivan : "British isles". Oh I though you were better then that.

Doggerassassin22 : Please do a video on iso standards for cereal

lich5164four : 1:21 Did you take French in school or something?
