    So the guy at the end was blind? He was able to do all of that by feel? What the fuck?

    I’m sure this is going to get taken the wrong way, but I think even Gavin has to worry about some of the things he’s done. He’s talked about how he’s shown slo mo footage of a dude ejaculating to a few people and in the future, someone might bring that up and make it sound way worse than it actually was

    I just don't like SP7. Sorry to say, but they tend to crave the focus of attention or if the topic is not about them, then they tend to control the dialog. It was hard to watch Gus talk about the specific airplane model without SP7 interjecting. On top of that, the on the spot they were on was just disgraceful.

    I cannot believe that Richard Turner is using anything short of witchcraft. He is no man, but playing cards incarnate! I didn't even realize he was blind until I read the description. What's even more amazing to me as practicing 10-20 hours a day for 26 years. I'm barely even functional for 10-20 hours a day!

    These guys don't understand snapchat, and their comments come off as really out of touch. It seems as if they don't see social media as a way to maintain relationships but rather to reach out to your audience.

    Instagram is a platform for social media influencers to reach out to their audience. It's basically the new twitter.

    Snapchat on the other hand is much more intimate. Its main purpose is to send single snaps to one of your friends. It is awful for reaching an audience, but that's not what it's for - it's for having conversations with your friends. All of Snapchat's features are centred around you keeping up with what all your friends are up to. Snapchat is far more personal than instagram, which when you don't have followers posting feels like screaming into a brick wall.

      I find snapchat really interesting, as it is the first app that makes me feel old, as someone who's first email address was a netscape account. I've tried to use snapchat and couldn't figure out the UI, and don't really see the point, but I understand that people younger than me (if only by 5 years) love it and it's just simple for them. (I'm 27 btw) Don't have instagram either, but have been close to installing it to share pictures. This is an interesting point of view on why it's used though, thank you.

    Is it my imagination, or is Gus perky? Even Gavin's diving into the gab right out of the gate.


    This is a really high paced episode, and I love it.


    It's true that you (SP7) made a great call on showing the monster,.. I smiled through the rest of the film on that reveal alone. However short it was, I was satisfied.


    And now that we've seen what SP7 can do,.. I'm looking forward to a friendly competition with RT's "Day 5".


    It's gonna be a viewers market,.. welcome to the family Steve,.. Cib. 


    CHEERS!!!  beers

    First, love seeing Steven&Cib just being themselves; they really are great, funny guys and sometimes I worry that people new to SP7 content might believe those "vlogs" are how they are. Totally not the case, haha. They can be awkward, sure, but they are NOT their characters.
    Second, I don't know how I have never heard of Richard Turner before, he's amazing! And watching Gavin's mind get blown is adorable, haha. Bet he'd like to slow-mo some of those card tricks. I will definitely need to check out that documentary.

      born with it yes. chemical imbalance, no.

      people dont want to hear it but if pedophilia is a choice than homosexuality is a choice. it's not. pedophilia is morally reprehensible, but not a choice. also a pedophile and a child molester are not synonymous. the problem is you can't have an open and honest conversation about these things because people are too emotionally invested and cant seperate that to have a conversation.

    I have been day trading bitcoin for quite a few months and what started as a laugh from all of my coworkers at my bond office quickly turned to sheer confusion and envy, but because of this exposure to so many people who don't entirely understand it and sheerly speculate, i might have to change my mind.  To paraphrase a wise man right before the great depression, "when the shoe shiners and taxi drivers start talking about stocks, its time to sell" while i absolutely am in love with the concept of bitcoin and blockchain technology, the constant debates amongst the developers and constant hard forks is quickly proving that bitcoin is a house built on sand, the technology isn't ready to scale and people are only buying because they think it will make them money, but those systems never last.  With the CME adding futures trading this coming month, it poses  a genuine threat on the US and global economy, because by no longer having entirely separate crypto exchanges and marketplaces, institutional investors, and more importantly the pool of money they ALL borrow from in order to trade on margin becomes exposed to the volatility of bitcoin because when bitcoin has these 30% crashes that are happening faster and faster, people are going to lose more money than they even invested and that dries up margin pools.  The cost of electricity for a single transaction currently takes (on average from conservative calculations) ~200kwh which can run an average american home for about a week.  As the difficulty increases in the mining algorithm (something that happens periodically every 2016 blocks mined) the electricity required also increases as the time taken to perform hashing algorithms takes longer and longer, combined with the fact that every 4 years the reward for each block gets  halved as well, it REQUIRES the price of 1 BTC to be at least $300,000 and as much as 1.5 million by 2020 to even remain profitable for the miners who already get really cheap electricity.  AND the electrical consumption at that scale would also require more electricity than it takes to power japan.  This boom very much resembles the end of 2013 until it crashed january 2014, just at a much much larger scale

      Although I wont deny that Bitcoin absolutely poses a substantial threat to the market as a whole, makes absolutely no sense from the supply standpoint, and is likely to crash within the coming decade, i'll have to disagree that a market based entirely on the greater fools theory can remain stable and long lasting.

    I completely agree with Steven about going back to regular work after working on a passion project. I did a feature film over the course of the first six months of this year, on weekends only. It was awesome, but every Monday going to an "real" job just felt that much more difficult. Once production ended (it is now in post-production), it was even worse. Didn't even have that to look forward to. At least his day job is still in the entertainment industry. I just have stupid office work...


    Here's the shameless plug for the movie,Lemon Drop. I am one of the leads, and hopefully can share the finished product once it comes out (the main producer is looking into distribution and whatnot).

      Either is correct depending upon which style guide you abide by. Rooster Teeth typically adheres to The Chicago Manual of Style and The Elements of Stylewhich states, "Form the possessive singular of nouns by adding 's. Follow this rule whatever the final consonant."

    To answer Gavin's question robots can't make money however there are robots that have developed things themselves that had sold for money for example a robot has wrote a song before and it's called Shimon
