When America collapses everyone on the forum should come to what used to be California and create the "The Republic of Linus":
The Republic of Linus will have:
Powerful cloud gaming servers.
Monthly LAN parties.
A robust Used computer parts market
Government Health Care
A currency bearing the face of our Monarch, Linus Sebastian. This Monarch would also Make YVonne the Queen of Our Republic, and Linus' children the prince's and princess's of The Republic of Linus Respectively.
Universities will be based on other great Youtubers like the "Gamers Nexus" University where one can learn to benchmark using scientific data.
There will be a "Derb8uer" university where one can learn Extreme Overclocking, and a "JayZTwoCents" University where one can learn car modding and hardline watercooling.
The "Tech Yes City" University will teach one how to flip PC parts, and there will be a "Paul and Kyle" University where one can learn film.
This country will have a 0% income and consumption tax. So where does the money come from to pay public services?
Crypto mining of course. We will reuse the old power plants left from the fallout of America to run massive crypto mining operations using a Mix of Nvidia and AMD GPUs, and We will sell this crypto to other newly formed countries. UFDTech will be the CEO of our state-owned crypto mining operation.
Our Rival Country will be "The Republic of MKBHD" where the Youtubers who target more maintream consumer tech products like Unbox Therapy and JerryRigEverything will live.
I see nothing that could go wrong with this. Everything will work out 💯. /s
@LinusTech If there wasn't the whole "overthrowing the government" connotation, this would make a hilarious April fools joke.

Credit card app-o-rama is over:
Chase Sapphie preferred - Approved
will meet the spending bonus, then product change to a freedom.
Amex green - approved
Plan to close the card. No use for me after the bonus.
BofA cash rewards - approved
i'll keep this one. The 3% back on online purchases could be useful.
citi premier - approved
Plan to product change this to a Citi dividend, which is a 5% card you can't get anymore.
Chase Southerst plus - approved
No use for this one. Will close when the next annual fee is due. 40K southwest points is enough
Denied cards -
Cited not enough personal income. They're a credit union I guess
Amex blue cash preferred -
too many recent inquiries. Lol I wonder why.
Wells fargo platinum -
Bunch of odd reasons. I am apparently not using my credit lines enough (okay?).
5 out of 8 is pretty good for me. These points should be enough to get me and a friend to LTX and back for the next two years as long as I fly to seattle and take the bus to Vancouver. Not bad I guess.

This past week i've been on a sort of "application rampage" for credit cards, and there's a reason for that. By appling for many credit cards all at once, all the cards will age the same, and all credit card inquiries will drop off your credit buearus accounts simutaneously. This leaves me more options for opening more cards in two years, since after all the inquiries drop off, my credit report will suddenly look very clean all at once.
I applied and was approved for the Amex green card, except this really isn't that suprising. It's a charge card (different from a credit card, google it), and i've been a good amex customer for the past two years. Fun fact regarding American Express: The first card you apply for, they will Hard pull your credit report (usually Experian). Any subsequent cards as long as you are still an amex member will be soft pulled. This means you can, if you want to, apply for as many cards with american express as you want without damaging your credit history.
Citi Premier 60K points
Chase Sapphire Preferred 60K points
BofA Cash rewards $200 bonus
Amex Green 45K points - a historical high offer. Will be closing this one since it has no good downgrade path.
Total points: 165K points + $200
Total required spend: $10,500. Can meet all at once thanks to a tuition bill.
Wells fargo propel: 20K points - Need to call or something on monday.
Penfed Platinum - $100 bonus - asked for tax returns. I input my total household income (which you can do), which is nowhere close to my personal income. I'll submit them, but i'm not hopeful.

I'M SO HAPPY
the reason why might seem silly.
i went swimming. that sounds like a weird thing to get so excited over but lemme explain...
so, basically my group of friends decided they wanted to go swimming at a local lake. totally safe, the beach is huge and i live in a small town, there was plenty of space to social distance there don't worry, like the place is HUGE and i live in a small town so there could have been 3x the amount of people there that were there and it still would have been fine.
regardless, even though i really like swimming i haven't in years because dysphoria. the last time i went there with friends it was awful because they were playing in the water and i was sitting at the side lonely because i was scared to get into swimwear because i hate the way my body is and just aaaa....
but, i texted one of my friends and explained it, and she totally understood and we went shopping together (again small town, we went shopping just after dinner time so the place was almost empty, plenty of space, all safe) and we bought a bikini for me.
that's what made me comfy with swimming today, it just felt right wearing that and i could finally swim again since years and it just felt right to wear it and and and i'm just so happy and aaaaa!!!!
the crazy thing is i expected people to yell at me and stuff, like, i got stares which i'm used to since i've been wearing women's clothing for a while but nobody yelled at me, nobody cursed at me... i just feel so accepted

Also ngl, kinda felt the need to post this as a reaction to @VegetableStu's status update about a wallet prototype.
Call me a Gen Z(er) BOOMER but I actually wouldn't mind a dedicated thin and light electronic device in a phone form factor, substantially thinner and lighter, basically a device used exclusively for mobile payments which uses open source code and OS, and is a Corporation neutral approach and supports all digital payment methods including bitcoin, and you use it just like Apple Pay or Google Pay. No privacy issues or tracking BS.
So basically I'm thinking a Galaxy Alpha type of form factor device, running custom Linux or custom Android supporting a custom mobile payment system using NFC etc, and lock it down to only support acting as a dedicated wallet device and make sure it gets updates for 5-6 years. Make the screen Plastic OLED with no glass so that it doesn't need fixing much. And make the MSRP $199.
I'd actually buy that. Especially if running custom Linux.
And yes I know I just described the Pine Phone minus the software and mobile payment system parts that would be required.
That would be a great wallet replacement for 2020 2030 since in the UK at least a large amount of businesses accepting cash have added support for card and mobile payments.
