  1. The many times I've sliced the mold off some cheese and ate the rest never bothered me. Now the whole bread thing. I… I need a microscope in the kitchen. Bloody hell.

  2. Just how old is that bread? I’ve seen that same loaf in like 3 other videos before this one.

  3. This was informative. I’ve never looked up mold related stuff but when this popped up in my recommended and it was you I knew to click. Great Vid!!!!

  4. Is anyone else utterly terrified of mold? To the point of jerking away uncontrollably when it catches you by surprise? Even in a video?
    I watched all this. Except when my hand flew in front of the screen when mold was on it. I'll probably have moldy nightmares tonight.

  5. This guy’s arms getting more swoll every time someone clicks his vids?
