Linus Tech Tips hit 10m subscribers, Linus compared himself to Walter White (in a bad way) and retirement

It is just a guy talking off the top of his head at home. It sounds like he is going to participate less in the channel. His wife keeps asking for how much longer they would continue working tirelessly and he kept moving the goalposts, but now that they have 10m subscribers, if he died tomorrow, his wife wouldn't need to work again, his kids would be comfortable, and could afford whatever college they wanted.

It was refreshing to see a video that looked like clickbait, but he was emotional and convincing.

I do not have any idea how many subscribers The King of Random had when he retired, but he never did officially, Cody of Cody's Lab said he did. People kept saying that he was running everything behind the scenes, but as far as I know, that was pure assumption. Grant hired Nate and we hardly saw him again.

One thing that Linus mentioned was that when he built his company most other channels were one guy in his house, but they bought one property after another and hired one employee after another.

He made something that could survive without him.

I hope that you guys enjoy it and have a great day!

Never heard of the guy (or his wife's Cesarean scar), but Wikipedia has: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linus_Sebastian

Will he get the grief that Pewdiepie has?

edit; I only made it 17 minutes in.

I do not know a bigger name in technology.

I tried watching PDP.

Once.

I made it 1.7 seconds.

I have been following Linus and his team for years and have watched many of his videos, but I doubt that I would watch videos of almost anyone getting emotional about their lives if this was the first thing that I knew about them.

I found a relatively new show on YouTube where three women parody social media influenzas. They keep getting emotional about stuff that is truly important, like this lady undoubtedly researching pumpkin-spice leggings:
At least she died like she lived, doing what she loved most.

Oh, it looks like she was just bruised. Hopefully her phone is okay: https://au.news.yahoo.com/shocking-m...090739440.html

I follow PewDiePie at a distance, too much Minecraft playthroughs with his army of nine-year-olds. I was happy for his heroic struggle against T-series and marriage to Marzia.

I was also happy to see Styxhexenhammer and Elizabet's Philosophy meet IRL and marry.

The video was shared to Reddit and attracted thousands of comments...
But Yahoo can't be bothered to link to Reddit or the video, unless it's behind that video about the puppy with an owie on it's paw. Ain't nobody got time for puppies.

I've been liking Cat and Andrew [129K subscribers] because he upgrades $20 Mac Mini, & Etc.

So, the driver had a green light, but people started crossing from both sides?
This woman had been hanging out on the island?

Is this the same guy? I can't tell from the credits.

The MYSTERY Chinese CPU Explained
374,055 views •Jan 24, 2020

1/3 million views in one day?

After watching a Cat and Andrew video I went out and bought a $50 Mac Mini but it's a 2005 not 2006, so it has the PPC G4 chip instead of the single-core Intel.

This guy is everywhere.
