 Unless you have a 4K monitor you the "4k" you're watching is only really 1080p so yeah Smile

 it is better 1080 then other vids, so it's still better at least!

 @hamishca: Your statement would be correct if we where watching an uncompressed video. Pausing and switching to 4k does improve the image even on low fi monitors. The pixels may not be there but youtube's compression blurriness is hidden behind all those extra pixels that the 4k source generates.

 I never said it doesn't make a difference, I'm just saying unless you have a 4K monitor, it is physically impossible to experience this video in 4K Smile

 It's on youtube so disregard any notion of video quality and divide it by 4 or 5 automatically! Finally, a full 1080 on youtube haha

 I'm getting more artifacts on a MB Retina display at 4k than at 1080p.

 haha what I was thinking. still an awesome video though. 1080p FTW.

 Or you can be like me and not have a graphics card powerful enough to run it....

 Wow rclugnut.... I hope you realise graphics cards have no effect on the pixel density of your monitor :')

 Brazilain riders need a foockking shhit Visa to go to Canada. I`m brazilian and I feel like if I was a slave trying to get out of Africa.
Consulate ask you tons of documents just to take a single turist Visa. the most absurd document is that they need all your banking acount movements from 3 months back. they see all your investments and stuff and tons of others documents.
the website process to make de requirement is like a puzzle, right here pay tax there, come back ther right something here and is worst than your worst nightmare.
in 91 I had a turist Visa to Canada cause I was going to work in Tokio by Canadian airlines and the Visa was mandatory but at that time my job did the Visa process to me.
Now I work as a bike mecanic freelancer and dont have documents to prove that I have to come back to BRazil.
now I need to pay to a office to do all this documents buulshiiit.
I know tons of braziliam people that lives in Whistler and Vancouver working with legal documents and I now tons of people that lives in Whistler long time totaly iligal so this Visa is not working to not alawd to lve ilegal in Canada.
I have money to do the trip to Whistler since 2006 and the Visa process is so hard that till today I didnt went to the bikers paradise called Whistler.
race downhill since 1998 and since ther Whistler is my biggest dream life.
Gonna try this week a Visa to Canada....
I need to be in this place oone day!!!

 Dude, it is not that hard. Putting all the documents together is a pain in the a**, but after that you just pay the tax and drop you passport on the consulate. It literally took me less than a week to get my tourist visa. Anyway, if you manage to go this summer PM me! I will be riding there with two more friends!

Cheers,

Caio
