    Humans have evolved as much to preserve the in group as preserving themselves. Still results in people being dickheads ultimately, but the whole "selfish gene" thing is highly overstated. It isn't sexy science for headlines when research shows that people preserve the in group, whereas research that reinforces the selfish side of us propegates much faster because it makes the shitty part of us feel justified.

    Just so you guys know, I discovered Funhaus from a gif on Reddit that hit the front page (Yes the ponytail). I thought it was funny so I watched the video for context and proceeded to watch hours and hours of your videos on YouTube and became a huge fan. Now I'm a first member just for Funhaus and watch your stuff everyday. So it DOES happen and post like that bring more eyes to your product. Not sure how common my story is though and I understand that other people posting the best 'memes' and condensed clips from you videos may take views away from you, but it can also lead to new lifelong fans such as myself who never would have found Funhaus otherwise!

      Same!  I saw a few of their videos cut on r/youtubehaiku and had no idea who they were. After the third video of Funhaus I saw do well on that subreddit I finally visited their channel.  I ended up falling in love with their channel and just binge watching everything.  They’re also the only reason that I became a first  member!   It’s  a bummer that they’re missing out on all that sweet, sweet karma though.

    Skater vs surfer was spectacular, Elyse! I personally find Funhaus' best content is when you guys are making each other laugh and it seemed like you guys were really having trouble keeping it together! I would say best video in a while but lately you guys have really been on the ball! Keep it up!

    It is butt hair.  Sometimes my Sharpie outlining ruins the fine details on the borders, like your majestic ape butt hair in this instance.  If I drew your penis for fanart, James, trust me, it would be shredded.

    Regarding the anxiety question, for help, just look up Jordan Peterson. He is a clinical Psychologist and his lectures truly are very insightful and helpful. He will help you sort yourself out.

      I was half expecting a self-help type motivational speaker but I looked him up anyway and after binge watching about ten of his lectures (I have one currently paused) I can confirm he's worth checking out. Thanks for the tip!

      @Shillier You're welcome! I think one of the the most important things I learned from him is that standing in front of your fear does not make you less afraid, it makes you stronger. That completely changed how I dealt with my social anxiety and finally got me to eradicate it.

    To add to James' explanation and contempt for the human race. The person who used "guys holding doors" as an example. Holding doors is a learned behavior. Any honest guy will tell you 9 times out of 10 they're holding the door because a woman is attractive or to check them out. So they're not holding the door to be generous. They're still self serving. Period. 


    EDIT: for all the people downvoting. really pay attention to who you hold doors open for and at what distance. I promise you those ones where you decide to hold it a few extra seconds, will be a woman (or a man if that's your thing). it doesn't mean you're a bad person or you're misogynistic. it just means you're a human and most your actions are in fact self serving.

      I hold doors open for people because I’m not a rude gimp.

      I hold doors open for anyone and everyone its a natural instinct. But thats not to say someone dont open the door just to check out someone but I believe that its not as often as you presume.

      A large part of it is likely location based.  When I lived in some medium to large cities, it was a pretty rare occurrence. But then again, steering clear of a very large transvestite crackhead who lived on my block was something that was a daily trial at the one place I lived. 


      When I moved back to my very rural hometown, as a 6'4 ugly ass man, I have plenty of people who hold the door for me.  People just seem like they generally do it around here and even more so for older people because as you said it is "learned behavior".  If you were raised shitty, you'll likely only do it for self serving reasons. If you were raised that it is just a common courtesy, you likely never even give it a thought as to who you are holding the door.


      It is sort of like (and maybe my rural roots are showing) saying "Bless you" when someone sneezes.  You don't get a chance to "check someone out" when they make their awful sneeze face and blast mucus into their hands.  You do it because it was a learned behavior that is considered common courtesy.

      Maybe its because i'm Canadian and its considered very rude to not hold the door for someone here but I always do it.

    That feeling when Lawrence-senpai reads your questions. Honestly though, it is seriously concerning how rapidly developers have been transitioning to the "games as a service". I try not to support those type of games, and if I do purchase those games (ex: Overwatch, GTA IV, ME: Andromeda) I make it a point to not purchase any lootboxes. I can understand the logical reasoning behind monetarily supporting games with such a long life span, such as GTA IV, but I cannot help be feel that games will forever be changed as a whole, or at least AAA games having microtransactions heavily incorporated into the development process.

    I don't know if the person who wanted advice for anxiety will see this but hey-ho! I think anxiety is never really something you will overcome forever - but I think you reach a point where you accept that anxiety is a part of you (sort of linked to Lawrence's comment about reaching a place where he just zones out and accepts what is going to happen to him will happen - lots of panic attacks come from a "fight or flight" scenario.) 


    I think the most important thing is, is to remember that no matter who you are - you're always gonna get nervous about something! No one on this earth is just ice cold chilled about everything (the dentist, needles, public speaking, ordering food), not even the professionals! Adele still gets huge episodes of stage fright where she will try and escape the venue before performing, Beyonce had a period of her career where she had to take time away to care for her mental health and even Chris Evans, real life Captain America, gets nervous! (He employs the same tactic of trying to shhh your brain when it tries to panic). 


    I think trying to find ways of calming yourself (deep breathing, stretches, playing a video game) is super important but be kind to yourself if you find they don't work as you're trying to find what works. 


    I'll always remember giving a presentation at work and my boss finding me beforehand sat on the bathroom counter giving myself a pep talk whilst staring into my reflection with my nose practically pressed up against the mirror. Weird, but it worked for me!  benson bruce

      Well said, I totally agree. Especially about being kind to yourself when trying to overcome anxiety. Being the main character in our lives we easily get locked away in our head and what's happening to a point we usually miss a kindred spirit having the same struggle. We assume we are alone in our dysfunction and lose confidence. 


      For example. 

      My older brother has always been my role model, we share all the same geek interests but he is way better at being fit and social and going after his goals than I am. Super cool good looking dude to put it plainly. When he was a sophomore in college I went to stay with him for the summer and noticed something odd. Every night he wen't to sleep with Disney's Hercules playing on his computer, I noticed this for about a couple weeks. Long story short he said it made him feel better and distracted him so he could sleep. My super cool confident older brother opposite of me was having a really hard time with anxiety and that was his solution. I'm on medication for anxiety so Disney movies won't cut it for me but I found it a relief and a surprise to know my brother of all people struggled as I had struggled.

    I actually discovered Funhaus after seeing a gif on the frontpage of reddit (the one where James is miming seppuku on a bus)...so I gotta think there are others like me who have found you guys in a similar fashion.

    I have found this very hard to phrase, but here goes. 


    On the competitive people question, I for a long time have struggled with anxiety and loneliness, and whether it be a board game or a quiz show, I like to win. As someone that struggles to find a place in the world, it gives me a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. I am not just proving to others that I am the 'best', but also to myself that I can be successful. 


    I am also acutely aware of my competitiveness, and try to stay relaxed in those situations. But those 30 seconds after getting a quiz question right (in front of others) helps to raise my confidence in what may have been a very tough week. 


    I have played men's cricket since being a teenager, and I often wondered why these 40yo men were so competitive in a very amateur match. It is that for most of our lives we take the attitude "what's the point" and during these competitive situations there is a "point".


    After the help of an amazing therapist and my family and I am on the track to better health, and more positive outlook on life.

      I for one don't trust non competitive people. You have to be competitive, life is a competition. Fair play on the road to positivity :)

      I get this 100%!!! I used to play women's rugby and the anxiety of talking to people and trying to integrate within the team led me to becoming a crazed competitive maniac who actually, no one wanted to be around - which made me worse. It can deffo become a cycle that gets hard to break!

      Whoa, that is super interesting. I've never thought of competitive people in the sense that they are building confidence to overcome something. Rather it's probably the norm to just assume competitive people are confident naturally and like to do well. On a smaller scale I hyper focus on a game when I am feeling anxious. I assumed it mostly made me feel better because it was a distraction, but it would make sense that doing well in a game would be a small success to ease my anxiety. A neat viewpoint I will be applying to competitive people I see from now on.
