Minor correction on the correction bit at the end: Austin says NYCFC is affiliated with Manchester United but its actually Manchester City. And Jeff probably hasn't heard of the club since 2015 is the very first year they've played.

Are the minions pretty much Waldo from that Black Mirror episode? I think that's what they basically are at this point, an all-encompassing mass.

This is incredible GB content. Not to mention these other great things.

The guy programmed it himself which isn't getting enough love.

The actors all seem to be embracing and having fun with the community.

It all looks really good. Save for the UI which is apparently because of other platforms it is really nice to see high quality film.

Awesome series and I hope the game makes enough money to make a sequel possible if all parties are interested.

@bisonhero: I agree with you. In this hypothetical where someone is investing $5K a year at 25 they probably aren't only investing that same amount in their 50's. There may be a more realistic version out there but I just grabbed one of the first I saw in a quick Google search since I think a lot of folks realize they should be investing but haven't seen how much compounding growth can effect them positively or negatively.

I'm with Dan in that I tend to exceed the company match for my 401k. That isn't always possible for folks and some may not be in a situation where they even have a 401k. At the end of the day I think people should save as much as they can for retirement and even if it isn't much it helps to get in a good habit of setting aside that money no matter how much you are bringing in.

Pretty solid advice from Dan regarding retirement/investment. I won't add much since people should either do considerable research or pay to see a professional when they are investing but most of what he said is true. This graph is probably the simplest way of demonstrating what he mentioned about starting as soon as possible. Keep in mind these things are overly simplified and rely on a constant rate of return which isn't realistic but over very long time periods in the past have been around 10% or so.

Wonder if this will be heavy on the guinea pig advice

I never went full-blown Gundam fan and I couldn't even tell you how many years it's been since I caught an episode of any series but just bringing up 08th MS team gets me excited. I always wished there was more stuff like it and maybe there is but I've never found something that involved mechs and also felt grounded in some form of reality.

Austin sharing that belief makes me hopeful those opinions weren't just being easily impressed as a teen.

Weird Fact: O Brother Where Art Thou? comes up in this video and Dan says he's never seen it.

The latest Paul Ryckert podcast when the guys go to a Kansas bar and meet a guy who admits to murder has three songs play in the background of this part. One is "Man of Constant Sorrow" and I believe the version from that movie. Kinda weird and @danryckert should watch it soon

So I watched Oh Brother Where Art Thou? for the first time before this stream. Not only is it weird that it comes up here but one of the 3 songs you can make out in the bar of the latest Paul Ryckert(where that one guy admitted to murder) premium stream is I believe the version of "Man of Constant Sorrow" from the movie. Weird coincidence

Please keep up the dystopian cyberpunk future talk, it's really interesting.

Came here to say essentially the same thing. That was a fun and really interesting tangent and I should probably listen to that portion again to check out the books referenced.
