AdSense is messing up my secret plans

I have a video exporting right now that I plan to monetize for an experiment (explained in yesterday's blog post). But it turns out I never applied for monetization, because I couldn't think of a reason why I'd want to monetize my videos. (To piss off friends and family? To discourage people from taking a chance on my videos? To make six cents a year?)

So I've got to wait for an application to go through before I can upload my new video, and I don't have any idea how long that takes.
