    Why does Linus handle jerky in the same fashion he handles a penis on his first day as a cell bitch? So much reticence. I believe the sponsor demands more... His cellmate most assuredly will.

    They want to ban like buttons because of the well understand psychological negatives that come with it and that have been directly linked to contributing heavily to the increasing amount of depression in the modern generation. There is no such thing with achievements despite having similar functioning mechanisms because few people care about other people's achievements so they don't compare while social media affects billions of people's minds.

    I don't even understand the purpose of the galaxy fold outside of the R&D for potential future applications of folding screens. It doesn't even fold in the right direction.

    $30 for a water bottle that you can NOT put in the dishwasher, microwave, freezer, place in direct sunlight, keep a bananasplit chill and cant store liquids for more than "16 hours" (cold drinks) ..
    yeah. no.. if im paying $30 for a plastic water jug, but it has THAT many restrictions ... it should at the very least walk my dog, make my coffee, and cuddle with me on those long chilly nights alone..

    other than that ... love the WAN shows guys. :)

    I've seen how The Verge builds a PC - so anything technical above and beyond an Etch-A-Sketch is not something that I would trust The Verge to be able to operate.
    That they would break the Samsung phone is pretty much a given.

    Let's face it, The Verge thinks you need to wear a cock-ring to build a PC.

    LINUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Quit descending into the "LIKE HOLE" Where everyone becomes addicted to using the word like in each and every sentence. It is usually caused by dim wittedness. Please avoid the decline of your intelligible dialogue to us you audience- who still care about literacy and language.

    I wanted to share my own experience regarding shipment.
    I bought a 2x 4GB DDR2 ram from eBay for about 22$ shipping included.
    It shipped from Hong Kong and reached me here in India in 15 days and about been 6 months till this happened.
    That may not be a big deal for you, but it was a huge deal for me, Yes I was careful while picking the seller. Also did not had a credit/debit card so a relative helped me out.
    Getting that thing at that cost when it's nowhere to be found and costed like 50$ for shipping when bought from US, yes it was a huuuuge deal for me.

    I think the idea behind the banning of like button is because of the data that companies collect with the like button. Tracking and profiling minors. I personally don't like or agree with the method they've chosen to try to fix it. Legislation doesn't solve everything. But I understand why they are doing it

    I hate the fact governments are want to police the crap out of internet "because children" children are responsibility of the parents, not government. How about you just tell parents to get off their lazy asses and stop using internet as a nanny? Say that internet is for adult responsible individuals and children should use it while under parental supervision ONLY. If in that case child goes on Brazzers it is not government problem or anyone elses for that matter, only the parent who let that happen.

    12-16 oz for $30 holy fuck, no thanks. At least offer different sizes because that is nothing. Not even close to what he used to carry around in all the videos. To claim they are not cheap is a misdirect at best. Sure they need to mark it up a bit, but it is priced more than a Hydroflask. I doubt the quality is anywhere near as good (confirmed by their sales website 8/16 hot/cold vs 12/14) and they choose to go with an unusable size. Hey guys $30 is not unreasonable so fuck you and buy it anyway, even though we don't even know how much fluid it can fucking hold. Fuck basics like informing the user before purchasing just give us money. Just to be clear because they mislead by claiming you can save five dollars on the bottle, you have to buy another item to get that $5 off so it is misleading once again at best. Eat a dick Linus, I want to support you when your content is not trying to mislead, click-bait, or present an ad as content, but this is just more get as much money as possible bullshit. Can we get the old LTT back, please. Before Linus had to wear a diaper.

    Linus, you clearly don't have an understanding of wealth.

    In the US, the majority of wealthy people are because they earned it. Because they worked for it. Not just because they were handed an inheritance.

    This means that YES, wealthy people WILL have a problem with it being unreliable. It's not just "oh just buy another phone". People who are wealthy don't become wealthy, and don't stay wealthy by just throwing money at anything and everything. Personally, I am in the upper class. But I'm not going to throw money around to replace something that breaks. That's how I stop being in the upper class. If something breaks, I'm going to be as vocal as possible with the company to replace and/or fix it. If they won't, I'm not doing business with them again.

    I'm really getting tired of this attitude of yours where you're going, "oh, wealthy people just buy a new thing if something goes wrong" It's so ignorant, and lacks any introspection. You yourself are making enough money, for long enough, there was absolutely NO REASON for you to be driving around a pink beater for that long. Why didn't you just throw money at a new car right away? Stop acting like means(wealth) equals carelessness. It often translates to the exact opposite.

    I just dropped the cash to have some fun and build a full a full custom loop 2080ti, 9900k system. And you can bet your ass that if so much as the 10$ USB hub stops working, I'm going to be calling up Anker support to have it replaced. And everyone else in my financial position is the same way. You don't become or stay wealthy by being careless with money Linus. It really annoys me that you have said stuff to this effect on numerous occasions, and since you're in tech, a hobby that extends to ALL wealth brackets, shows you are out of touch with your viewers.

    The EU was such a great idea and then just like every more socialist based ideas the capitalists come in corrupt it therefore killing it in the process. Neither side will ever work, so stop bitching either of u dumbass right and left wing Nut cases.

    We need a mix of both ideologies that is the best humans can do with what we have at hand. By that I mean we are children intelligence speaking, and we have SO MUCH farther to go. And until we are mature enough as a modern society based species then we can move beyond a mix of both poisons into a system where there is more control that is then overseen by many other systems of power creating a paradox of regulation.

    So that it all works in the end without any human input at all. That is the end goal where humans have no input at all, because if we do we will fuck it up and ruin it. Thats what u wet meat bags do its your thing, so get fucking used to it.

    34:02 Facebook WILL NOT let you make an account using a VPN if you don't submit your government issued ID (which I have submitted btw) and even then they might just never unblock you (which also happened to me). I was using the same old email as my old facebook that I deleted. So it could have been because of that. And because I did not want to submit my phone number. Facebook is taking out the anonymity out the platform completely, the tor network they want to make is nothing but a disguise for something else most likely.

    Think of it this way. A poor kid hand assembled that phone with blood and tears and it breaks in a week making him make another much quicker. Just so some rich kid wasting his parents money can post what ever overpriced meal they just bought. Then the garbage dumps get filled quicker with dumb kids throwing electronics in the trash. The entire world suffers because of bad design and American capitalism.
