I should clarify that by "out of ideas", I mean that I've only got enough to last me until the end of March, or maybe the middle of April if lockdown eases. The way I work, that's close enough that I start to get worried.

Tom, Nostalgia for a thing that never existed is what Vaporwave is.

Anemoia is almost a good enough word for "nostalgia for a thing that never existed" because if it has never existed, then one can certainly have nostalgia for that thing they never experienced.

Hey Tom, there's a town in South Devon called Decoy. There is a local legend that it was built specifically to convince the Luftwaffe to drop bombs on them instead of Plymouth. I was always skeptical, but could be worth a look!

Of course "The Long Forgotten History of the British Moon Landings" isn't possible. But that is because it's not that they're forgotten, we just don't talk about them; to avoid upsetting the Yanks who arrived a decade later than us and only visited a few times. Greetings from Ipswich-in-Crater, The Moon. How is life on Earth these days?

Let's double-layer this Turing test: can a human come up with Tom Scott video titles that sound like they were created by a (relatively advanced, like GPT-3) AI? Here's my attempt: "I Asked 45,268 People to Steal My Identity" "The Polish City That's Slowly Floating Away" "I Am Not a Toaster" "Isaac Newton's Secret Ant Farm" "Why I Can't Upload this Video" "Don't Shoot a Mountain with a BB Gun" "The Assassination of Jerry the Mailman: Debunked" Add your own!

Omg, it's adorable that you asked the AI using "please" at the start of your request. You are definitely one of the few people who are going to survive the techno-apocalypse because you showed the machines respect from the start. EDIT: and then this took a scary and sinister turn when you mentioned the possibility of AI generating customer reviews etc...

Also it’s funny you said you don’t think there’s a word for nostalgia for something that doesn’t exist, but actually in welsh there’s this word, ‘hiraeth’, which doesn’t translate, but sort of means a longing to go back to either wales, or a place/time that doesn’t exist!
