- I wish he could see those beautiful breasts omg
- Oh Tommy. You always make me smile!
- Lol you are hilarious!!!!!!!! I love your videos, they crack me up and remind me of how great life really is. Thanks Tommy.
- How does your spatial sense work? Do you have a 'picture' in your head of where things are relative to each other in that you can create a mental model of your surroundings?
Also thanks, these vids are really interesting stuff; keep it up.
- Vsauce3 just featured a free completely audio based adventure game called "Blindscape" for iOS and Android. The subject matter is very depressing, but I'd love to hear what Tommy has to say about it.
- lol @assistive touch
- Dear Tom, I am writing a dissertation and I have decided to study how the blind interact with brands. How can you tell the difference between a can of Coke or Pepsi let's say. Without using taste or sight :) lol
- Do you play games? Ever tried angry birds? XD
- Ummm it Palm Sunday hahahahahaha LOL
- I didn't know you can double tap to unlock! You learn something new everyday. Your videos are a true inspiration, I love watching them all!

- what a cool dude, i would love to get drunk as fuck with him
- Do you know you have emails to read?
- I just died ''Brightyass'' XD !!!!!!!

- If you haven't already, you should turn down the brightness to minimum and turn off auto-brightness. Spares a lot of energy, makes your phone last longer without charging.
- Love your videos. :D
- What do u think of bionatic eyes?
- I use accessibility on my iPod to put it on mono because I have unilateral hearing, and even the nano has some things for the visually impaired.
- How do you edit your videos.
- The iPhone could just have a black screen and not load any textures for its screen if it's on a blind setting. It would probably run and boot up a decent amount faster.
- can you cry
- I just want to tell you that you are the coolest youtuber ever. Thank you for making me laugh every time, most people around here need to learn from your positivity.
- I lol'd when it turned out not to be Easter
