    Creativity is born of chaos. Bean counters and managers literally cannot see it and loss of control terrifies them.

    I was going to go to college, but the cafeteria had fast food places that I dislike, I figured wtf a taco bell bleh, a Chinese food place I was like fuck this, I won't even get to eat something good and also I was originally just made to go to college for to see what the actual f I'm going to learn and do there, but I was so in love with Steve Jobs and how he got so far while so small, I wanted to be that kind of person and I learned math on my very own by myself after all, I'm doing college work at home but via the THmy videos that explain how to do it, I have no one teaching me it and it's going perfectly. I was told in high school that since it's taking me a while to get the answer to multiplication tests, a teacher said you can use a calculator and my thoughts felt like, how is she not fired, telling their students to use a calculator, why don't I also grade my own work and add the letter ratings to them in pen, sure, I'll use a calculator and write in pen A++ on everything but I was like no thank you but I was also pissed cause I was like, who is made into a teacher that can be seen at times saying you could use a calculator to get your answers? My dad knew I did multiplication at home on my very own and within my own free time and he's gotten to see my results in multiplication were mostly correct and though I didn't do multiplication with the way the school teaches how to do it, instead, I found out a formula to getting the answers myself since back in middle school someone was walking on by, they saw me struggling with my math paper in my hand, they said something along the lines of multiplication is just like addition but you have to keep adding the same number over the number your supposed to be multiplying, so you also although have to understand that with 10's, 100's 1000's grouping, you need to understand that when you added 9 10 times for example, you need to realize that it will be a 2 digit number but it's also in the field of being multiplied so it's a matter of when you do 9 by 10, 100, 1000 its 90, 900, 9000 because there's some sort of suit math in multiplication uses and I figured it out all on my own ever since that day, but it was a student that gave me advice before they had to go to their classroom, they didn't even talk to me but gave me a short thing to say that I need to understand so that math seems easier for me, so they spent like 2 mins telling me 1 very easy trick to use and when they went back to their class, I never seen them again for any other day and was just going on to graduating without ever knowing them for their name or remembering their face anymore, all I remember was it was just a white kid if anything. My dad was with me when my time to talk with the staff of my high school were talking about my future in school and in the world and they wanted to immediately just say why don't we attend him for college, I objected to that and said I'm not going to be wasting more of my life's time with something completely and utterly futile and so I am going to finally fucking enjoy life just working for my own paychecks but I am most certainly not going to be another teachers dimwit that's being taught by slime balls in the way their all like, I felt like, no, these schools are filled with teachers that talk their students like douche bags, I was like, I'm not societies little slave, I won't be lectured for another 4 years and then graduate college, I've finished high school and that's what they said I should do before getting a job, so I said you told me what I need to do, so now ill just start working but I am certainly not going to feel saddened by the douche bags of schools again ever and thereby I will take my mind elsewhere but never learn off of your delinquent ways. My dad was talking with the teachers and they said look, we don't mean to flunk your kid in math for everything they've learned on their own, its just, we just don't know how their getting everything right and we although don't see them cheating with a calculator, we're like ok so he's not a cheater, their a legit learner, but their not going with the way we do math and the school board says that the students have to do it the way they teach the students otherwise we sadly have to flunk brilliant minds that get stuff done their own way since the school board believes its making the world a strong in the mind place with their educational ways, my dad said there's no good reasoning to that though, if my son is learning what he did on his own and is becoming a genius in math all on their own, with the right answers, who dares to just step in his way anymore and say you must be one of us or you shall not pass, you need to be on a team, you need to side with something, you need to judge others, he said this is wrong, if he's taught himself math and he's gotten everything right and your school board can't help but feel like that's unexpectable bs, he said that's the shittiness in your school, your the dogs on leashes telling me what your supposed to do while its although wrong to, so you sadly have to work in a place of lies and your students will get to feel shitty for not smelling the coffee of lies with you guys, that's where your wrong and that's why we're not interested in being part of your shittiness since your just a bunch of neglectful imbeciles already, so with your judgmental minds telling the wrong way to do things in order to be doing what you see as the right things to do, your playing with opposite day, be wrong with others and be mean, in order to make these students function differently. We made our approach to get business in a restaurant, I got a job there and I felt happy as fuck to flee the stupidity that college could've fucked me with.

    I will never understand the appeal of iMessage, I just can't understand it. And this is from someone who has only ever used an iPhone. I don't even have an android and I don't get the hype.

    Your interviews are so much better than most I’ve seen in the past. You just flow so naturally, and dynamically venture into topics. It’s a pleasure to watch these.

  • Smackteo

    Oh Linus, has adhd. Me too. Adderall has genuinely changed my life. Coincidentally like the girl in this video, I’m from Texas, pursuing my Electrical Engineering degree, only have a year and a half left, and would rather make content.

    I feel like the contract he agreed on, to leave NCIX was because the CEO felt that Linus was going to surpass him and he didnt like that idea.

    iMessage is just for sms that’s it, it does nothing special, and the reason why you can’t share a one minute is just that Facebook is cheap. The other thing is that no messenger does that anyway. And airdrop doesn’t work half of the time and also doesn’t ever allow a “big” video file to go through so you are just lying. But you are still a person so Good Day.

    I watch Linus because he is passionate, enthusiastic, honest, and very knowledgeable...and that carries over into the rest of his staff. I will watch other channels on many other topics that have knowledge with enthusiasm to varying degrees, but Linus is at this time one of the best... he is also not crazy in any weird ways, or cocky. He is mild mannered and very real and beleivable human being. not putting on a show. So much of this world is fake, not just scripted, even if Linus is reading a script, he is not fake.
