    This video is far more interesting than the actual Tiffany video. I absolutely love the animation as well.

    I wonder if we are contributing to Grey's descent into madness by watching his "descent into madness" videos more than his main videos.

    Are you saying that Guinevere is not "the same as" Jennifer? Because why can't Tifanny be Theophanu?

    This feels like a quest for eldritch knowledge. It has a forbidden book with notes in it from long-lost authors, a mysterious poem, and a quest. But in the end, it's just. A man.

    I find it amazing that you can even research this stuff. The fact that this information manages to make it to the present. Though to be fair a lot of it is misinformation too 😂

  • Momera

    I think this is my favourite video that you've made. Probably one of my favourite videos ever. I loved this video. Your journey was not in vain, I was thoroughly entertained and captivated

    oh gosh, I positively chuckled at all this. I studied English philology and all the wild goose chases reminded me very much of my old university years. Those were some frustratingly fun years. Thank you for the story.

    I am a librarian, and I can completely relate to the experience of falling down a research rabbit hole. I loved this video.


    This type of ramble video is what i live for, screw normal facts videos, frustration about finding information is the real fun

    Ok the world needs to fund a project to conncect the dots on all this stuff and properly arrange them. Maybe digitize and also make an AI for intelligent search and correlation set up.

  • mailerdiablo

    I totally feel you. In law school a lecturer as usual threw me a 19th century legal case authority for a certain legal principle/proposition on defamation. I got challenged on my understanding on that proposition, was asked by the lecturer "did you read the original source". I did. A trip to the national library and out came the 19th century casebook filled with dust. And that case did not prove the proposition, it was actually quite the opposite (the lawyer who put through the argument actually lost the case). At the next class the lecturer challenged me again, and was shocked to find that I actually looked it up. Asked me for a digitized version of that case law as printed. After sending that email, never heard from the lecturer again about that proposition. Now imagine that the same proposition is still being put forth in court cases by students-now-lawyers taught at law school and accepted without question...

    I know you already have a very amazing team and many many amazing people supporting you; as a cancer patient waiting for the more than likely call of remission and remaining in quarantine limbo and still unable to work despite completing treatment... Oh uhm, I would love to volunteer some time to help research. Watching your Tiffany video and Tekoi video I see we are exactly the same in how we can passionately look for an answer despite if it doesn't really mean much (every fact is somehow just as important as the facts that are more relevant)... If you have any need for this. I mostly sit in bed and don't have much to do. I don't often feel sick- I'm pretty sure I am in remission but the cancer is refractory and plays games so my oncologist won't give me my damn PINK PIECE OF PAPER in the mail!!!! Any kind of an application process for this? (Sorry for the unnecessary information. Sleepless, over tired, dumbed down and trying to express the extent of my boredom and time spent on my butt.)

    I love this story though, especially the Pope/Hearne gossip!

  • CarnalSpurn

    I personally want to thank you for all the research you poured into this, and for this super long script so that we can get a glimpse of the struggle and depths you sunk to so you could share this Tiffany lore with us. My dad sent me this video (along with your Tiffany one) and they were a joy to watch

    I absolutely loved the video! I was also amazed at the size of those libraries xD, I was watching all the way through the video, the passion and determination of your search made me want to know how your search would conclude. Amazing job :D
