    Your first mistake is questioning the thread. It can hear you...

    THIS! This annoys me every time! One person was like "why did they even take us here, we can't afford this"

    Erm, haven't you seen the show you agreed to be on?! That's how it works. Plus you have to know they are renovators. Why would you think the perfect house is yours?

    I can't remember if it mentions it in the application or not, but I have heard one or two couples actually ask if they could afford it. I think they have to act surprised. There are people out there that just don't get it too though.

    So there's a guy who used to work for me that would stay up all hours recording his gaming sessions, then oversleep and be late for work 2-3 times a week. He had some plan to actually make money somehow from posting youtube videos of him playing games and describing how to play a game. Now I'm sitting here thinking it'd be hilarious if you were watching this guy's videos. I know they're out there, as his co-workers have mentioned watching them...primarily for ways to make fun of him, I'm sure. He's actually a good kid and smart, but it amazed me that he would burn up his vacation being late because of playing video games. I mean, I'm not surprised that it happens, but that this guy was one to fall into it.

    Seriously, is that a spitball guess, or where do you see these stats? I don't need to look that I'm probably one of those 5, but I see references to thread stats once in a while, but I've never seen where to get them.

    There CAN be money to be made doing it. I don't know how, but there is. The highest subscribed person on YouTube is one of those people (Pewdiepie) though I don't know how people can stand to watch him if they're over the age of 12. He makes good money though. And plenty I YouTube vloggers either make good money or have an actual career off of YouTube. I like to watch the Vlog Brothers, Grace Helbig and Hannah Hart's My Drunk Kitchen on there, and I know they all make a living too.

    I don't think many gamers make a living doing it, but a few do. Markiplier is another one of the highest subscribed YouTubers and he does it by playing games too?

    We all need to change our avatars to pictures of random thoughts. Only then will Mega-Thread be complete.

    Are you my 7 year old?

    He watches Minecraft Youtube videos almost more than he plays. I got him a couple new games for his birthday but he'd still rather play Minecraft and watch British guys play it on youtube.
