    I am done watching this show after this past episode. I respect having your own opinion about politics and life views. They all say they have had enough and must speak up about how they feel. Except then they go on rants saying "who cares", "it won't affect you", "get over it". There is a very young community here that look up to these individuals. An i don't care attitude is dangerous and not a healthy way to live. They have spent a lot of 2017 criticizing politics as if these kinds of policies/executive orders only happened when Trump was voted in. You are giving convoluted messages to this community. Saying who cares about people defacing public property or who marry's who is unequivocal to your previous opinions. (you mentioned on this podcast who cares if a statue is torn down, well people should care if vandals for above the law and do it themselves)


    I would advise you guys to step out of your bubble and educate yourself on both sides of politics. There is a good and bad to everything yet the discussion seems to always point back to POTUS being some demonstrative figure. Doubt this will be seen in an understanding light but it is infuriating to try and get a break from the world only to listen to a bunch of idiots ( lovely idiots while playing video games) ostracize any views against their utopian view of society. The world isn't grand and peachy, i am not asking you to be perfect. Just take a step back and think before going on rants. You stepped onto this side of voicing your political views and you best know that it is influencing people of tomorrow. But hey do what you want its your world on that show, we are just observing it.

      Just because you disagree with their political views, which I can respect, doesn't mean they can't talk about it. Sure they don't always make the best points but they clearly aren't uneducated idiots when it comes to politics. Next time just close the video and move on.

    If anyone is like Michael and doesn't understand someone's prejudices or strong opinions, I'd recommend making the effort to understand where they are coming from. You don't have to agree or sympathise with them, but at least understanding their perspective helps you figure out how to stop their ideas from spreading.

    The current tactic of dismissing them or trying to shout them down certainly isn't working...

      I disagree with this, the ideals of people who hate others because of race or sexuality or whatever don't deserve the time tbh. I don't want to understand where they are coming from. There's no reason that's good enough.

      Putting aside the fact that it's never so simple,  it isn't a matter of who deserves what, it's just cause and effect. Ideas will spread unless the other side understands how to counteract them. Righteousness doesn't win elections or change minds, messaging does. And to be effective, messaging needs to understand its audience.

      @crovvv

      How do you solve a problem? You patiently analyse the symptoms to work down to the cause, then work on fixing it, one step at a time. How do you clean a grimy counter? You shine a good light on it and scrub away at one messy spot at a time. Ignoring the issue, or not giving time to those who are stuck in hateful ways of thinking, does not solve anything. It only allows them to get filthier. The sooner corruption can be sorted out, the easier and healthier it is for quite literally everyone.

    michael mentions the confederate statue thing and says "its not a big deal, just tear them down and move on" but most of the country is saying "its not a big deal, just leave them be and move on". thats where the conflict is. its a relatively small group of people that have a problem with them, and everyone else is like "who gives a shit, its a pile of stone that no one had a problem with until now, just do whatever and move on with life", but no one can agree on what "whatever" is going to be.

      "Better" without any qualifiers is completely subjective.


      Do consoles have better graphics, framerates or configuability? Of course not.


      Can they be better for someone's individual needs and preferences? Absolutely.

      As far as CNN, MSNBC, Fox, ABC, NBC, Washington Post, New York Times etc. goes there is no winners. Once upon a time, I could pretend Fox was the super conservative biased channel and the rest were normal but then I grew up and found out there legitimately is no unbiased news channel or paper. They are all just a shallow sensationalist business model and nothing more.

    Hey Michael ! I'm the one who sent you guys the Glass Boot and the Swiss Army knife. I'm glad you're enjoying the Glass Boot ! Sorry about the chocolates: they are in another package, Amazon didn't let me send all the objects in one single package. Hope you guys will find it !
    I also knew the bloo-bloop with the Glass Boot will getyou ! Haha ! So to avoid the bloo-bloop, simply hold it the opposite way from how you did.

    Thanks for enjoying it and I hope you guys will find the chocolates !

    And I love the way you pronounced my name, it was hilarious.

    My computer is like 7-8 years old and I can run Destiny at 60fps pretty easily, the only thing I've changed is my power supply and graphics card when they broke, computer when I bought it was about £700($900) maybe, and the second graphics card I got was about £90($115). In the long run it doesn't take much to have a good computer, you don't have to throw money into it constantly to make it run. My computer has worked for the same time xbox 360s worked until the one, it cost more in total, yes, but how many xbox 360s did you have to rebuy because of the red ring for example? It's really just preference in the end anyway, some people prefer the simplicity of controllers, some like being able to macro through their keyboard, to each their own.

      Lets be honest here you can have macros or use a controller on PC, hell i play GTA with controller and keyboard. My PC cost £800 3 years ago and i'm still slaying having but have put no money into it other than the peripherals, PC is king and i just wanna point out on console once you've paid for games and online subscription you're getting close to a Mid-spec PC which is better than console after a few years on console you coulda got a decent PC. Useless you're a true casual PC is king. I also own PS4 and Xbone, dont ask why.

    What Michael was talking about with people being nice but hateful vs him being an asshole but accepting. I grew up with this guy who was a real good guy, real nice and outgoing around his 17th birthday he became super religious. No big deal whatever. But then he became homophobic. He would go on and on about "love thy neighbor." "treat others with respect." "kind deeds will be rewarded." But then sometimes in the same conversation he would pull a 180 and go "Fucking faggots! Why don't they go back in the closet where they belong!" And I remember my brother once quoting to him one of the times he himself said "Love your fellow man" right after he went on a homophobic rant and went "So that doesn't apply to gay people? The fuck is wrong with you?" What was kinda messed up was he and my brother were practically best friends and my brother was gay. This guy would spew a homophobic rant in my brothers face than chase it up with "But you're cool though! I love you! You're not like the rest of them so you don't count." My brother would be like "The fuck is any of that supposed to mean?" We haven't talked to him in years.

      I really feel like the majority of homophobia is not truly hate driven. It's hateful behaviour, but it really is rooted in ignorance, which snowballs into hatred over time. It comes from people hearing the same unfounded rhetoric over and over again and just blindly repeating it until eventually it becomes consolidated in their minds. It's like a much more aggressive and persistent form of an old wives tale. Even if someone presents you with a couple pieces of information that disprove their preconceptions, it takes a lot more to break down their brainwashed thinking process.

      As I native Texan, I know how we look, but Austin is pretty much an oasis in a desert of prejudice. It is an awesome town. You go around Texas and it's all Oil industries, lumber, and lifestock, but Austin is pretty much freedom city. It is the creative bastion in Texas that lets anyone be their self. I've only visited once and awesome.

      I do not know what you have heard, but Texas is a very nice state, filled with great people. After all the stories of people helping each other in the Houston area, how can people have these ideas about Texans? Even the gay marriage thing is out the window, given the fact that around 2/3rds of Texans have supported some sort of gay union for over a decade. 


      Austin is a nice city. I lived there for 5 years, and I have a lot of friends there. I have only vacationed in Fredericksburg, and I have more people's personal phone numbers from that area than Austin. People there are just friendly. Austinites take pride in being weird, but that is not the end all, be all.
