    There's a stereotype that dumb people are happy all the time, because they don't know any better. That "ignorance is bliss". I can't speak for everyone but I can definitely speak aboutmy experience as a mentally disabled person. I've always been eerily aware about my low IQ, even when I wouldn't admit it. I made a video talking about how I feel like a loser because of my disability.

    One thing I see that is different about the link you posted and
    the other youtube video links I looked at is, the others don't have
    have a 'dot' in between the 'u' and the 'b.' The other videos have
    the 'dot' in between the word "you" and "tube." Like this: you.tube

    (Cannot see video.)
    @Glowflake, the best thing that you can do is "Rock what you got!"
    I have a son who was in special forces and he is still envious of others whom he perceives to have a higher IQ.

    @Glowflake there’s an icon that allows you to post YouTube videos on here:
    17093944-74F5-4703-A504-61581EC80A1F.jpeg
    Simply click on the icon and copy and paste the YouTube add into there and see if that works.

    I'm using my PlayStation 5 to access the internet browser, as I don't have a phone or PC. It won't let me copy or paste anything on PlayStation. I had to write down the link by hand

    Hello @Glowflake do you still need help with your video? I’ve been meaning to come back here, but have been very busy lately; I’ll be available if you still need help.

    Thats really kind of you to come back. Yeah I do still need help. Since links aren't working, the only thing I can think of is, well, would it be too bold of me to ask for you to visit my channel and post the video on this site? If yes, my channel is called rosegold boi, the title is "I'm a loser, intellectually impairment, unemployed and living with my mom"
