And he spends the money like in a Real Time Strategy Game: Spend your resources and don't let them build up unnecessarily big, so you grow an infrastructure and emergency fighting forces ASAP.all phil has in his life thats good is the money. the rest is pure hot garbage. its not enough money to warrant trading places....ever
Think of it this way.As someone who started youtube video game stuff around the same time as DSP, and who even had some personal run-ins with him back when the platform was way different than it is now, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a bit jealous that he grew as much as he did compared to me when he's a much slimier person. There are many reasons and it's pretty much entirely on me, but there's always been that little voice telling me if I'd been more proactive I could have become a real life LSB or something.
Meh, I call that shame myself. Imagine being proud to be a content creator on a platform that enables grown adult men to whack off on stream in front of legit children viewers and thieve disability payments out of the mentally/physically disabled?The only thing you can be jealous of is his survivalability(on Twitch that is). Its mostly due to his fans throwing money at the gout guy.
Everything else nah.
There's the rub though.DSP is only still around at all because of 2-4 big whales and 98% trolls. How many genuine DSP fans do you think there are?
There's the rub though.
How many Let's Players, streamers, or hell, anyone in life PERIOD have whales and paypigs who'll throw money at them to do what they want?
That's what I'm jealous of. I'm nobody worth throwing money at. I'll die nobody worth throwing money at. So I'm jealous.
Look at it this way, it's like being self employed and having 4-5 regular customers. Except your entire business would be at risk if just one of them leaves since they are responislbe for 90% of your income, which they could do at any time. You also have no pension, no sick pay, no legal rights, no plans to evolve, no skills that could transfer to another job, and you're only ever a single slip up or naughty word away from being permanantly banned from the platform you use. Would anyone want to run a business like that? That's before we even get into how miserable his life is.
Many, in fact the vast majority of businesses, don't even have those 4-5 regular customers. That's part of my point.
