This is absolutely the most stupid thing I have ever seen.. and LTT has done a LOT of stupid idiotic things over the years... Such a waste, and a very bad example given the state of the world. Is this how you spent that DOGEcoin earnings?? I mean, you did just have to have a talk with Yvonne to get the 50k to buy that.. how did you sweet talk her into nearly 100k for a stupid video game controller?

Are you trying to say LTT should have waited until everyone in the world wasn't suffering due to anything, ever? If you haven't noticed most of what they due is stupid and excessive, so should they just stop making content period because someone somewhere is suffering?

 

I think it's fun and neat

lol...

So someone/a company who has made their own money through the accomplishments* of themselves can't do interesting/maybe dumb things with that money simply because someone else in the world is having issues? This reads a lot like the guy who said no one with money should be able to buy something nice for themselves but have to live as if impoverished and should donate all their money to charity.

 

*I absolutely consider what Linus/LTT have done to be an accomplishment. Building such a massive, successful business from basically nothing is definitely an example of merit.

How? It's gold, literally one of the things that hold their value best. Just melt it and sell it again if you can't afford to keep it.

I think this is a good idea for linus to flex his 10m subscribers. haha.

Gold is liquid, you can just melt it when you need to.

Probably worth more as a controller than gold bars.

Gold, like the prices of everything else can drop in market value due to lack of demand. When Times are Good, Gold drops, during Bad Times, Gold Rises.

 

Please Note: It Claimed by those selling marked up Gold and Silver Bars that you will need such items to Survive the EOTWAWKI when it happens. Nevermind that IF such Event did happen, you would be sitting on a pile useless Precious Metals.

There are other graphs on that site worth checking out that compare gold to other things. You're right the price of gold is going to change on demand from industry. Speculation from investors that would drive up the price of gold I believe is just going to other places like tech and emerging markets. Gold does not pay a dividend. Early backers of Google, Apple, and Microsoft are getting annual payments they can live off. You can't slice off parts of a gold bar to pay your bills for the rest of your life.

I have one word for this.

 

It begins with 'W' and ends with 'hy'.

Thanks for reading all this by the way!

By the way, my desktop is a docked laptop. Get over it, No seriously, I have an exterrnal monitor, keyboard, mouse, headset, ethernet and cooling fans all connected. Using it feels no different to a desktop, it works for several hours if the power goes out, and disconnecting just a few cables gives me something I can take on the go. There's enough power for all games I play and it even copes with basic (and some not-so-basic) video editing. Give it a go - you might just love it.

This is one of the "because we can" videos. But all in all i found the content about gold casting pretty interesting.

I'm not saying Linus shouldn't went and spend that much money for creating interesting content. But didn't he mention Boston Dynamics Spot was too much and not worth it?

 

And wow this is so much more expensive. 87,500 USD instead of 74,500 USD.

Hey maybe they can trade the Gold Xbox Controller with someone with a BS Spot haha

 

Edit: Oh wait they did put in the comments that they would either melt it down or sell it.
