I was watching a TV show where a guy said, "I work from home.  I have an online presence.  I post videos of myself playing video games."

  1. What kind of loser plays video games for a living?
  2. What kind of DOUBLE loser watches somebody else play video games?
  3. How does one monetize this?

Beats the hell out of digging ditches or pumping gas.

I dunno. Digging ditches and pumping gas are real world skills.

Skills which I feel free to guess that you have not participated in.

I just moved 80 wheelbarrows of dirt and rock, does that count? And Washington is a pump-your-own state.

If the videos amounted to advertising and training for the game(s), I could see some purpose to them (and some monetary value).

There's a huge difference between playing Bob the Builder and having to break your ass forty or fifty hours a week to earn a living.

But who pays someone to play Bob The Builder™? And who the hell watches somebody else play Bob The Builder™?

My reference was to you playing Bob the Builder in your back yard.

I need to hook you up with Levi. Because it is a thing and he actually made over 200$ the other day. I don't get it either. I think exactly that up there. But, there's dollars in his paypal so....
