    Mat, I enjoy your channel, though I seldom watch your videos. You, as an influencer, should feel obligated to share truthful and honest information to the hundreds of thousands of human beings consuming your content. Regardless of entertainment or infotainment, honesty in any information, especially from a government source, should be communicated with the utmost intent of truthful information. I have not yet watched this video. While I understand it is your choice to have taken on this task of giving us the information you were given by Fauci, I do not believe in the honesty of those you are gaining information from. I have yet to experience firsthand the effects of COVID, I therefore personally do not see it as an honest threat to society. Where I live, all COVID cases are kept secret.

    Pat there is something bothering me about the spirits which possess Golden Freddy, Cassidy is a GIRL with long black hair, the vengeful spirit thanks to the face that appears in ultimate custom night has is a BOY with blonde hair and blue eyes, but the crying child is a BOY with brown hair. Of course I know from your past theories that Golden Freddy can be possessed by more than two spirits, but that isn’t my question. All that made me think, who are the two spirits talking in the Log Book? and What if Mike is not the one speaking with red pen but rather some one else I have a ton of questions and so little with to analyze If you read this comment I will be truly happy Thank you for your time

    actually, the "invasive species that you mentioned, humans had prevented this from happening, for youngoos they are island challenge pokemon, only a few yongoos are found wild, and like other pokemon teeth are for defence. they are all most likely VEGANS, yes I am not kidding VEGANS the pokemon food is all made out of organic and irl farm animals, for proof they are all based on irl places, this includes Kanto/Johto. sorry mat pat but your theory is busted. for others like Meowth, they are pets, and like how I said already, they are vegan (they are unable to feed on other pokemon).

    If the crying child is golden freddy and is also Michael afton it would make sense that golden Freddy appears with “its me” because it’s mike saying that it is his spirit in the animatronic.

    I honestly think the crying child from fnaf 4 is Gregory. Let me explain. It sounds crazy only going off of one or two clues, but the crying child in fnaf 4 wears a striped shirt, and Gregory (The boy in the statue who sits inside of Glamrock Freddy) is also wearing an identical shirt just like it. These animatronics must also be his friends if he is willingly climbing inside of them and they are supposedly protecting him. The crying child also states quite clearly that they are his friends. However, he had to have seen something that made him distrust them in the first place, and the big brother is obviously making fun of him for something. Why? Because the crying child is scared of the big brother whenever he wears a costume. In the sense of the crying child being Gregory, this would explain why he was afraid of something like that, because he saw an "animatronic" (Vanny) kill someone at a place he thought was safe.

    Perhaps Piglins were Pigmen who didn’t get zombified, and began fighting the hoglins who are pigs who evolved to be better suited to combat due to eating crimson fungus instead of nether wart. Warped fungus has a stench that striders love but hurts the nose of a hoglin, so they avoid it. Piglins avoid Zombified Piglins simply cause they’re creepy and a bit too reminiscent of their Wither Skeleton foes. The Piglin Brute is simply their answer to the mass amounts of undead in the soul sand valleys. Their crossbows were made with sticks they made from the nether wood as well as the little iron they could get plus strider string, their swords made with the only usable resource they had there, Nether Gold. Due to this, they love gold to the point of respecting those who wear it, and trading other things found in the nether for it. They only live in bastion remnants due to settling down being a way to get attacked by a Ghast. While they have found diamonds in the past and combined it with Netherite to make Netherite tools, they have all been broken except for the hoes made due to not understanding that they were useless. And since the Hoglins don’t care about wither skeletons, no Zoglins ever naturally appeared in the Nether, particularly due to not having soul sand in their natural habitat. The warped forest is too strange for anyone but the bravest piglins and the dull striders, so endermen can come here to visit.
