    Just so I'm clear --regarding all the "click-bait" references targeting the Mind-chop channel, I'm not advocating when I say that your initial attitude toward the guy whom won the silver play button was heroic. You are a true badass personality. youTube hasn't got a button that deserves your ass!

    Fun fact: if have have an illegit company with a lot of shady money, you can pay up to 5x for stuff in auctions and you can launder money through this way...just kidding this isn't what happened...or is it?

    • Jaded Empath
      Jaded Empath Month ago

      Actually the overbidding thing is more akin to 'gambling addiction' - and as Linus noted 'they blow their money at a casino, it's just GONE; if they blow their money at an auction, at least they have *something*'
      This auction might've been a little worse than usual given the region is full of Nouveau Riche with nothing better to do than pay 5x to 'win' something they don't even need or want.

  • Gungriffen
    Gungriffen Month ago +1

    Linus should have taken his play button and if he still felt guilty offered like 1.2x what the guy paid for it.
    Just saying another deal could have been reached.
    It didn't have to be all or nothing.

  • 616Haggard
    616Haggard Month ago

    Isn't that reflective of todays culture? Linus, being a good little beta male and thinking emotionally, gives the kid HIS award. Kid doesn't deserve it, didn't earn it, but Linus gives it to him. That's why men need to think rationally. The kid didn't have a shred of integrity either, or he would've given it back to Linus.

    Tech guys, you are quite naive: buying overpriced stuff at an official auction to resell with a slight loss is cheaper than paying the casino's cut to launder money.

    Linus, I hope you realize you gave away the NCIX OG Silver play button away to some shitheads running a clickbait top 10 facts channel.

  • Jewdy Hopps
    Jewdy Hopps Month ago

    “This guy has a million subs and still hasn’t been rewarded” maybe it’s because he bought a dead channel, proceeded to sub bot said channel, then had his revenue revoked BECAUSE he was abusing the system. To add insult to injury, he ended up taking the play button (something of sentimental value to Linus) even after hearing his reasoning for why he wanted to purchase it back in the first place, because TVclip wouldn’t award him for his bought account... if you look up the definition of the word “spoiled” in the dictionary, this kid’s face is in there.
    P.s., if he really wanted his OWN play button, maybe he should try to develop some actual talent instead of leaching off the success of what someone else has made.

    I say that at every auction I go to people run prices up on stuff that they could have gotten brand new for a lot cheaper or for older stuff online on like eBay for a fifth of what they pay at the auction. never made sense to me why not go with some knowledge of what your bidding on and know where to stop instead of paying a lot more then you would have. haha

    • Jaded Empath
      Jaded Empath Month ago

      it's essentially irrational behaviour - lots of people just 'go to auctions' for entertainment over actually 'making a deal' or even 'getting something you need/want but can't find anymore'. They have fun with the bidding, and (hopefully) don't spend more than what THEY CAN AFFORD (if your trust fund gives you $100k a year, paying 2x - 5x for something "I *won* on auction" is fine)
