    1 year afterwards Funhaus would lovingly give us 1 hour post shows because of the money us First members pump for sheer enjoyment. Funhaus is God.

    I'm mad at myself that I missed this conversation. I don't watch the podcast, to be honest, because I often don't agree with the guys' opinions (which is fine), and they also occasionally take the tone of "also you're an idiot if you disagree" (which is frustrating), so I missed the college discussion twice over.

    But I think Nulon's point is "I did this" does not equal "everyone can do this." Lawrence is ignoring the fact that he is (bear with me for liberal talking points here) an able-bodied white dude that, money aside, had every other advantage in life. So, he was able to work REALLY hard, work his ASS off, and overcome this disadvantage. However, for the disabled, to the women, the people of color, who are struggling with SEVERAL disadvantages, hearing some average dude say "I did it!!!! All you have to do is WORK!!!!!" is frustrating to no end. And then for the comment to be dismissed as "condescending" when the original conversation was so patronizing was also frustrating.

    I know this is several weeks late to this conversation, but it just really bugged me and I had to say something about it.

      sort of already regret putting this long-ass comment, but I won't delete it because I'm not a quitter. xD


      Edit: Nope, yeah. I'm a quitter. If you guys saw my way-too-long message please don't put it in the comments show. I'm still extremely anxious and shaky from the last time you saw my comment and put it in the show because I'm a socially retarded psychopath. OuO

    I find myself in general agreeing with what is being said about working hard and just being smart about your choices, but I do also agree that the system can be pretty stacked against you.


    That being said, it drives me crazy that people, whatever percentage of people this is, go to an out of state, private school that costs $50k a year to get their degree in something that isn't really applicable to real life and then complaining that they have crippling debt and no job. This is where I think the "Be Smart" mentality has to come in. I am not knocking any degree or field of study. Nor am I knocking any dream that people have. However, you can't go to Super Expensive U to get your degree in Creative World Thinking (generic sounding degree, not a knock on any degree) that has little to no real-world job opportunity and then be angry when you can't find a job to pay off your student loans.


    Tuition is too high. Period. Scholarship opportunities are limited. Period. That sucks. Look for the creative solution or the piece by piece solution. Community college, work some jsut to save money first, limit your spending, find an opportunity and work toward it. Follow your dreams.


    TL:DR A super expensive degree does not equal success. YOu have to be smart. That being said, the system sucks and eneds some changes.

    This was actually a better version of the Fan Show in my opinion. I really liked going through the comments, and listening to the discussion you all brought to the table. Fan art should have a little bit more time than it did though. I guess it's just finding the right balance. If there is a ton of fan art one week, I think it'd be nice if we had a lightning round of fan art, just like how this one felt.

    I am sick and fucking tired of people claiming that college is unnecessary. Guess I'm paying this crap-ton of money for no reason. Guess I'm trading in these years of my life for no reason. Sure, for trade jobs and the like, you're good to go without a degree. But it's a different story concerning something education-based. The fact of the matter is this: regardless of what you can learn outside of college, you need a degree for many of those dream jobs. You can't be a doctor degreeless. You can't be a chemist degreeless. Hell, a lot of times, you can't even go into musical performance degreeless. Because without one, there will always be someone more qualified than you for these types of careers. It sucks. It sucks that our future rests upon the ability to sell our soul for a higher education. It sucks that not everyone is able to receive it. But it's life.

      It matters the job you are going into. I know a man who came out of a private college with a philosophy degree, and he messed with computers as a hobby. Then he did IT with the local government for over twenty years. He has twenty years of experience in a field that college couldn't give you a year of experience and he will get a job in his field no matter where he goes.


      The problem is that people say you need a degree, kinda. You should have a degree but the only thing you truly, truly need, is experience. Go get a job as a chef with twenty years of experience, you'll find one. Same with art (a very demanded occupation by the way). Volunteer, internships. People get so lost in college they forget that experience is actually more important.


      Secondly, sometimes it is more important to search out experience and a job before going to college for a dream job. Someone can edit videos for a production company or work as a preschool teacher, a nanny, service provider, all sorts of other jobs. While doing those jobs or after go for the degree, but at least now you have a degree and experience.

    I had a question, and it's been something I've been thinking about for a while now, and I figured this might be the best place to put it. Something was mentioned in a previous video, I'm guessing either an older fan show, comments show, or Open Haus, about the length of your videos and comparing them to Achievement Hunter's and possibly other channels' videos. I think it was Lawrence who answered the question--and I really wish I could remember which video it was so I could check what exactly was said--but he mentioned that because Funhaus doesn't have as many people and that all of you guys are working on and editing the videos in some way, shape, or form, that's it's easier for you guys to make shorter videos.


    What I was wondering was, if you guys had the same work force as Achievement Hunter, where some people are only "the talent" and a whole other group of people do the editing (more or less, if I understand it correctly), would you like to make longer videos? Or do you'd think you'd prefer the shorter content?


    Don't get me wrong, I (and plenty of other people, I'm sure) love your content regardless of how long the videos are; sometimes I prefer the shorter ones because sometimes I have to wait until I know I have time to watch the longer AH videos. So I'm not saying that anything should be changed, I just wanted to know, if you had those sorts of resources, what your decision would be to use them.

    I think you guys should be able to do whatever you want with this show, but frankly, I've made it through the first 11 minutes and my thought is this: I'll watch the show regardless in the future, but I may skip over the part where you read comments from millennials masturbating about their many woes.


    edit: Needless to say, I pretty substantially disagree with user kclarkness. At least about the first 11 minutes.


    Edit2: I've now finished, and while I still stand by my original statement, I should add that I acknowledge the many woes of young people. I'd just rather be impressed and delighted by art than blerged down by unhappiness

    On the subject of more fan art or more comments, I do think the "rotation" idea is best! I'd like to see one consisting of mostly fan art and some comments and then vice versa. Or maybe even have one week be fan art entirely, next week be comments entirely and rotate on that basis instead!

    I think the point some people were trying to make is that sometimes you work really really fucking hard and you still fail, and that's been happening to millennials a lot more than some older generations. Like, it's not that we hate working hard, it's that we hate working hard and failing and then being blamed for failing because we didn't work hard enough.

    While I don't understand where he comes up with the 1% military thing, but not everyone can just get a job and go to school. How am I supposed to pay for college if everywhere I apply for a job isn't hiring? I can't even get one job where am I supposed to get 2/3? You need a job to get into college, but jobs don't want you unless you've been to college.

    Guess I'm part of the silent masses. I dont comment a lot but I watch every single one of your videos, can't get enough. It was you joining the RoosterTeeth family that pushed my decision to get a sponsorship account. Love all your stuff keep on doing what you're doing! Also you make jokes (or used to) a lot about your audience being mainly gay men and as a gay man can totally see that being true haha. My friends knows you as the handsome nerds channel, we find your gay jokes really funny and love the openhaus video where you talk about owning a gay club. The photoshops for that episode where hilarious! Also totally loving Elise's awkward sense of humour it fits so well! To reiterate you guys rule keep on doing what you're doing!!

      I couldn't agree with this any more. I discovered IG a while back and followed the guys when they joined the RT family. It definitely pushed me to get a sponsorship account and *try* to be more active in a community as awesome as the RT community. Watching Funhaus videos is still the highlight of my day every day, and has become part of my daily ritual. Keep doing what you're doing!

    I'm watching this in my college dorm room while doing homework at 3am. Shit's hard, man.


    I am a sophomore in a US state school, studying Illustration and English.

    While I am doing very well in classes I am currently more miserable than I have been my whole life, and I've been in some pretty dark places. I have to decide what is more important: getting the skills I need no matter what, or maintaining a healthy lifestyle and keep my mental heath in check. I have been choosing the former for the past two years, but feel that I am getting to some sort of tipping point where I cannot maintain a facade of contentment and will start to tailspin.

    This is why, for me in particular the college expenses are hard to swallow: College was billed to me as a great interim time between the monotony of high school and the immediacy of "real life". It was a time for learning, expansion, exploration of your independence, extracurricular activities, and all around, a period of self discovery. This is what I have discovered about my self. I have major self esteem issues, am doing a major that literally leaves no time for extracurriculars, and may be clinically depressed. Fun stuff. This makes me wonder if it is worth the money. My money and my parents money, who are old as shit but bust their asses working in a business they started. If I'm going to crash and burn there is no do-over. For me college is do-or-die and I can work my ass off as I have been, and ignore my physical and mental health, but that does not work for me. It shouldn't work for me. I'm so obsessed with money, what I make and what I have on account of the idea that dropping out would be such a waste of cash.


    I don't know. I just hate everything. It's easy to make criticism of groups of people, millennial, college-goers, and say that they complain too much or whatever, and say that you had it hear too, but everyone is different, everyone's experiences are different. In my case, I am currently that millennial who goes to college and complains that everything is too hard for me, but that's just becasue I'm fucking depressed.

    People have sugarcoated things for me my whole life, to get me enthusiastic and determined to start my life as an adult. It's hard to stay positive when you bite into the lovely bright red apple of life only to find it's rotten inside. Some people swallow it. Some people spit it out. I ate it and it gave me indigestion.


    If that last bit was weird, remember, 3am, still got a few hours of homework to finish. I'm off the deep end.


    BTW love funhaus keep creating all the content pls i love it

    I agree that in the last video, Lawrence's comment on college and military was very glossed-over and dismissive, but I mostly attributed that to the limited time they had to speak on it. You can't really get someone's entire perspective on a complicated subject such as that in one or two sentences, so I'm really glad they dedicated more time to it in this video. College really has become a huge issue with this generation and I think it's kind of a sore spot whenever anyone makes it seem like less of a big deal than it truly is. It can be hard for the generation before us to understand how significantly easier (easy being relative) it was to go to and afford college than it is now in tandem with other issues such as the job market and minimum wages.

    Unfortunately Lawrence's reply to Nulan comes off just as dismissive as Nulan's baseless inferences. "It's hard but you can do it if you don't make excuses" or "I did it and you can too" really washes over individual struggles of money and loan eligibility, housing, job availability, wages, etc. Working hard isn't the only ingredient to advancing your life, sometimes "the system" is just plain rigged against you, which is what the college system has become (as Adam was briefly explaining).
    It's a vicious cycle of believing that a college degree is the key to a successful job and life, and then finding out that college a degree is just a piece of paper that doesn't necessarily guarantee you anything other than an assload of debt. All that hard work and more often than not it comes down to luck.
    Seriously, I won't argue against working hard being necessary to advance in life, but I would never say that the reason someone can't attend college is because they aren't working hard or that they're making excuses. Millions of people work harder than I ever have, or perhaps harder than you ever have, and still don't have the means to go to college.
    Also, I feel like it goes without saying that this whole military discussion is ridiculous. Sure it's an option, but when you're trying to choose between signing your life away to the military or living with crushing debt just to afford schooling, you can't honestly say you're really being given much of a choice.
    Apologies for the long comment (you guys sure have a lot to get through this round) but this subject is such a layered and complicated one that it's hard to summarize. Whether or not someone can go to college depends on many other factors of the economy, the job market, and their own family and living situation - it does not depend solely on how hard they work for it.

    Normally I swoon any time Lawrence lets loose his eloquent and informed opinions, but I'm rather disappointed by the lack of insight basing his arguments on this one. Getting through college IS difficult and those that do it are proud of their accomplishments, and perhaps the "you can, too" is meant to encourage, but you have to realize that the circumstances and unseen opportunities surrounding your college and work experience cannot be applied to everyone.

      Perhaps this is a bit callous, but my ultimate point was that circumstance doesn't matter. Life doesn't give a shit if you were dealt a raw hand. It's up to an individual to work through that and rise above.


      So saying "my situation is harder than most" is an excuse. It can be true, but it's also an excuse. Sitting around and waiting for someone to listen and help will just mean you'll spend most of your life sitting and waiting.

    • chilope FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Pussy Slayer

      1 year ago

      @SirLarr I'm sure that it can be used as an excuse, but most of the time I hear it used as an explanation. Maybe we're hearing two different conversations, but I typically hear "My life circumstances are preventing me from achieving my dreams" in response to people berating someone for not being successful, rather than as an excuse to not try to be successful. I mean, you're right, life doesn't care if you were dealt a raw hand, that's kind of the point.


      Like I think the thing you're missing is that even if you don't mean it this way, the things that you're saying are things that a lot of people, including me, have heard from people who worked half as hard to achieve twice as much as us. I don't care that some people are more successful than me, I care that they turn around after sliding through college on their parent's dime and then call me lazy and stupid for almost having to drop out for financial reasons. I care that some asshole can get an unpaid internship at his dad's lawfirm while still living at home and then turn around and tell me i'm not trying hard enough to get into my field because i can't afford to do unpaid work. I have to have a job, even if it's shitty and unrelated, because I have to pay rent. That /is/ working hard. I'm not being lazy, I'm not making excuses, I'm just trying to get by as best as I can. Everyone is.


      Like, that comment about "sitting around and waiting for someone to listen and help" is literally exactly what I'm talking about. That's a complete misrepresentation of what people are trying to tell you. I'm not asking for help, I'm just asking to maybe not be judged so harshly for not being immediately successful.


      And frankly, "circumstances don't matter, it's about effort and not making excuses" /is/ an excuse for ignoring systematic disadvantages.

    So the problem with yall doing the comments show is that you set an expectation. Which isn't a bad thing mind you. Since you have a few shows dedicated to responding to fan stuff, comments are now made with the sense that it will be read by one of yall. That's what all comments on the internet are for, but with a huge fanbase there's an expectation that it won't be read. Yall broke that expectation and must now respond to every single comment. Good luck... and good night.

    Also, I agree with everything you guys said about working hard. I am 26 now and have been working since I graduated. I work retail and it has taught me a lot about business (which has become important for my future endeavors) and has allowed me to meet awesome people who have helped me decide what I want to do with my life. Working hard is a must in life, I was an extremely lazy kid in high school and I realized how much that screwed me when I decided I wanted to go college. It hasn't stopped me, I am going to a community college and paying for all my classes and books. It is hard and I truly have to work at it, but that makes it feel more rewarding and I get to take fun classes like Japanese. Also James, A+ on the marriage comment, Elyse is a lucky woman.

    Heres my huge rant on why community colleges are better and just as valid without sorcing anything wiht bad spelling and grammar, cause fuck it, everyone else doign theres.


    Thinking back, I defiantly would have went to a community or tech college and would have waited until i was a bit older to go (like 24, you get more scholarships and grants that way too). I wont say what my degree is but its largely based on how good your portfolio is and the degree isn't as important, like you ll need one to apply for jobs and what not until you can score the job you want (hopefully one day) but no one is going to select some one went to a state university over a community college, their degree and time is just as valid. They will see you both have degrees and then go on to your portfolio.

    I don't regret college and i love everyone I've met and my skills have improved immensely, but if i could re do it, I would have found a cheaper college.

    I was also porn into poverty and no way of getting a job with out a car sense i lived out in the sticks (with 3 meth labs in the forest that was my back yard). I started my freshman year with my first real job and bought things i needed and was independent from my parents, it was stressful but i got things done, and there were some major bumps along the road dealing with mental health problems (i.e. attempted suicide and all that shit).

    I was similar with Adam not having the greatest of smarts, i don't words good and i had undiagnosed adhd and dyslexia. So scholarships and doing well on the ACT wasn't in the cards for me, I tried and got in but only by a small percent. I didn't have the money to retake it and such. I filed for tons of scholarships and received about 500.

    I do have a lot of debt about 25K, and the interest on them is painful. Currently i work at a non-profit and in 10 years my remainder can be forgiven, but thats also 10 years and not in the field i want. I also made the mistake of taking out my maximum of loans each year, I didn t need to. I should have only taken just enough, granted overage helped me get nice supplies but i could have also tried to save up for them.

    That being said, I would have gone to the cheapest community college, because i got what i wanted from college time developing skill and understanding more about my industry and the live feedback from professors and class room critiques was immensely helpful. that could have been achieved at a community college.


    tldr: if your dumb and poor go to a cheaper college and work on your field. Community college is nothing to be ashamed of and is just as valid. Also take care of your mental health cause that can really fuck you up.

    Don’t know if you already answered this question before but I would like to know how long a typical work day is for you?

    Up until now that Joel is leaving I thought you all seem to enjoy what you are doing (I guess for him it is more about that he doesn’t see a challenge than that he is not happy and in Spool’s case it was about his family) and so I wonder if you are so engaged that you don’t care about the time you spend in the office because it is fun.


    I often hear you guys say that you don’t have much free time and with Bruce saying that you are doing like seven different jobs and Lawrence asking which of you hasn't ever worked hard it makes me think that you must work really long days but still you look happy about it (or at least it does not appear as if you hate the workload you have to handle).


    I myself haven’t found a job I really like yet and so I would also like to know from you how it feels to be doing something you like each and every day?

    Lawrence, while you talk about 'liberal talking points' you yourself keep using the old 'conservative talking points' and the old adage of "just pull yourselves up by the bootstraps" but just dressed it up fancier. Also just by the virtue of something being a talking point can't make it true.

    While I agree with you to a degree (I'm not going to multi-paragraph 'terms and service' with this one for you) I feel like most of what you were saying was "That's the way things are, I had to do it, so you shut up and do it and don't complain about it being hard and try and change things" (hyperbole? yes) and I don't agree with that. I don't want to get into a political discussion on this but it's definitely showing your age. Also most jobs that aren't minimum wage need a college degree, and unfortunately you seem to be falling for a confirmation bias, just because it worked for you (and no one discredits/devalues you for that) doesn't mean it'll work for the vast majority of other people. Equality of opportunity, not equality of result.

    Don't hate you guys or anything (obviously) just want to point it out ; just because the other person didn't put it well doesn't mean he's wrong.

      I don't expect everyone to have the same life experience... even though you're throwing out some stuff I find hard to believe. Perhaps ALL jobs in your area are minimum wage without a college degree... I find that very, very hard to believe though.


      I'm not saying anyone is wrong, or that their world view is incorrect. I'm saying that nobody else cares. You can go to a job interview and lay on them the series of tough breaks you had. They won't care. All they care is can you do the work.


      So it's frustrating to hear people use the tough breaks or rough starts they had as a reason life is difficult, because it doesn't really matter. All that matters is what you do with what you have. Some have more, some have less, but fixating on what you don't have won't help you make the best of what you do.

    I love y'all and I will watch your content no matter how it's formatted. As long as it's entertaining me, I wont complain.


    To add on to the part about school and working hard. I am someone who thinks that school is just, plain and simple, boring. This May I would have been graduating with a Bachelor's in Early Education. But I decided that I like working more. Literally two weeks ago got a pretty good job that I enjoy. It's a call center, nowhere near education, but it's damn fun to do.


    Anyways, whether you go to college and get a degree or you drop out and get a job, just makes sure that you don't make any excuses. It will take months to find a good full time job regardless if you have a degree or not.


    Life is hard. Don't be a bitch and make excuses. Work you're ass off for what you want.

    Can there be 6 more comment shows with 2 show being dedicated to just bashing the fan base and 1 that slightly answers a question before just going on to say a famous cartoon one-liner? (Haha please no. You guys and gals just stay awesome. I enjoy what you do and that is why I have a gold star next to my name.)

    What I do want to know, does FunHaus still receive fun items? Mainly a box of dicks like before, or even stuff that is intended for Spoole (whoever he is/was/who?) or addressed for Achievement Hunter?

    hey guys can you go back to making the show all about art so I can get mad you aren't reading the comments more and then can you make it a comment show again so I can get mad that it's not about the art I just feel each week you don't give everything possible the time it needs and I am disappointed that you guys actually respond to feedback I mean how dare yo

    Please can you go back to the other format? I watch this show for the awesome art and the comments to me are just a bonus. But it kind of disappointed me how quickly you glossed over the art when that never happened to the comments when the format is flipped. The comment responses were very good and thought-engaging but I feel that they are better suited to be addressed at the end

    Guys although i enjoyed this content, i do believe that the Fan Art was not given a proper show, and that the artists who drew them might feel quite shitty that their work was only on screen for a max of 5 seconds. Maybe next time give the Fan Art section more than 1 minute

    As always, detailed, and thorough replies. We definitely appreciate these, and it's nice to have a comments focused show, where you are able to go in depth on one or two elements, as well as the amazing fan art (Seriously community, you guys rock <3).

    A very similarly theme to the last time I commented, but I wonder if the sense of "Oh these guys are on the other side of my computer screen, they must be disconnected from the real world" often pervades some of these comments.

    Will do my best to keep this brief, but anyway (Edit: Mammoth comment, apologies. I suck.): I'm a Music Student here in Scotland (where you are eligible for 4/5 Years of Government funded university tuition. I'm always grateful for the opportunities we have like this here), and as a 20 y/o, I fee like there is just so much life out there. The modern generation of immediacy, and technology, has made it feel like everything progresses both so slowly, yet so fast. It feels like school, and college go past at an alarming rate, yet still only feel a few steps closer to the end goal, whatever that may be.

    With that in mind, I love my studies, I love my "work" in Music, and I started my own music related business recently with eyes to the future. What I wanted to ask, or vocalise to the group for perhaps advice, or thought, is that I went to University for the 'old fashioned' reason. I went to learn, and to dedicate myself to a field of study that I care about, and wish to be more knowledgeable in regards to it. Is it a field where I could study it on my own, or out of a College setting? Yes. I get reminded that very frequently, especially in a field, as I'm sure in your field you guys encounter regularly, where body of work, experience, etc are weighted more than degrees; however, for some, like myself I don't feel I could study or be as happy as I am, without this formal educational setting. After High school I took some time out of education to try that, and realised I'm just the kind of person, or am maybe have not yet developed to a point, where I am comfortable doing that myself, as I lose some direction, so deadlines, professors, and classrooms all help.


    So as a Music Student, and the pressures, of life, society, everything moving so fast, it often feels a little disheartening thinking "With all this going on, and the amount of time I'm here, for what? Should I be doing something more useful" (To society, more financially stable). Though I'm kept going as I'm doing it for myself, and for no one else at the core of it. Seeing things like this always remind me to kick my own butt about working hard, as I think the way things are these days it's easy to start resting on your laurels, and you have to get used to telling yourself "I can work harder", if you know you're not fulfilling your potential.

    I'm no Mozart, and I never will be, (not that I'm trying to be, but I hope you understand what I mean) I'm not top of my class, and compared to many of my peers I'm behind in many areas, but if you are driven to do something, you'll make it work, or find a way to make it work, as if you don't, then it's almost certain to not happen. I'm not some model student, I'm more often than I'd care to admit I'm up at 3am doing assignments or watching a podcast depending on the week
    telling myself "practise what you preach". Though where I was starting my degree 2 years ago, I've come so far in so many ways, not just my studies, getting caught up in "I still have so far to go ahhhh" is very much a can't see the wood for the trees situation.

    What I'm trying to say is I guess, all in all, the Funhaus guys have plenty of valuable life experience, and their words, and advice comes from a good place.
    As always, thanks for all of your work, advice, comments, and big love to all <3.

      Kudos to you for a respectful comment, and thank you for sharing your experience so far in life. It's always interesting to hear the many different attitudes people have towards life. I wholeheartedly agree with you that the Funhaus crew have a lot of wisdom to share. (Thank you, Funhaus :D). I also want to point out that your second-to-last paragraph highlights what I think is a really important mentality that some people often do not consider. "If you're driven to do something, you'll make it work." But if it doesn't work out, then that's okay too. Sometimes in life, things don't work out, and there isn't much to be done about it. Complaining certainly isn't going to change anything about your unfortunate circumstances, only action will. That isn't to say that you aren't entitled to complain, it's only human nature after all. I just hope that you all take time to reflect on what you're complaining about, instead of just plugging your fingers in your ears, screaming "UNFAIR WORLD." Because no one is disagreeing with you. The world is unfair, but life goes on and if you work hard, things get better.


      Thank you Funhaus for the informative video. I definitely like the idea of rotating the content of the fan shows (Comments->Fan art. And reverse). Thank you for all the content you produce, I love what you guys do, and you're the only channel I religiously watch the content of on youtube. So thank you!!

      @PhilipN Thank you for taking the time to read that mammoth comment! I appreciate it! I find the Funhaus fan show comments section generally have well thought out comments, and stimulating conversation, much like the videos them selves. All the best!

    I'm usually part of that quiet majority but this time I have to speak out just for a short moment. I know this is not how this show usually runs and the fan art gets way more screen time but as a artist and one that appreciates art, it kinda feels like the fan art this time was done a great injustice. Most of the fan art got about 7 to 8 seconds of screen time.

    I know the fan art usually gets more time on screen and hope these artist get either another chance in the next episode or submit another piece and not get depress that the piece they worked on for hours did not get much time or much input at all.

    This is all based on just the video it self and nothing else since this is where I see all this fan art in the first place.

    Its not often that I get inspired by things on the internet. But there point about going to college and working hard really inspired me. I start my 3 year course at University in a few months and as much as I'm looking forward to it, I'm also crazy nervous about how much debt I'm going to be in afterwards. But knowing what kind of work you guys had to put in and seeing the sort of position you guys are in now is really something to strive towards

    the less than 1% issue comes from the fact that today less than 1% of the US populations serves in the US military. the lowest in history. the fact of the matter is that college costs have sky rocketed since the Reagan administration. I am currently serving and going to college for economics but the fact is that the military cant accept 100% of the population to provide education benefits for the other 99% and providing education for the people is the best long term economical policy you could have as to keep a competitive long term economical policy you have to bring in innovation and competiviness into the economy. The only way to do that is educate the median population above that of its competitors. speaking from an educated, yet drunk, liberal, military veteran.

    Everyone does know that the argument for the military for college being "risk dying to pay for college" is bogus right. I was in the military for 6 years and yeah I did it for education benefits and went to Afghanistan in a combat role, But there are jobs in the military where combat is not inherent, especially now. even for my specialty it was voluntary. While the military is a route that one can take for education, Are there risk to joining the military that can result in the risk of life, limb or mental state? Absolutely. My opinion is Funhaus makes a more than valid point there are so many different routes to take to be able to earn an education either through higher institute education or by joining the workforce early.

    As my first ever comment as a semi-long sponsor (2.5 years), I would like to start off by saying I had never heard of you guys during your inside gaming days but when you joined RoosterTeeth I couldn't get enough. I only watched Achievement Hunter videos beforehand, but when Funhaus showed up it became my new standard of entertainment and comedy. I can't even watch Achievement Hunter anymore. So thank you for creating the content you do, I look forward to your videos every day.


    Anyways...


    Lawrence, I abolutely agree with your response about busting your ass to get through college.To elaborate on your point, there are an incredible amount of unclaimed scholarships/bursaries every year, yet we still hear a never ending stream of undergraduates complaining about tuition cost. This is something everyone should be aware of, simply apply to any scholarship you can and you absolutely will win some.

    There are many solutions to this problem of obtaining education, but my favourite is 'be smart about it', as you have said. This doesn't imply being an inherently smart person, but rather implementing an education plan. Whether it's teaching yourself skills without college/university or attending one of these post secondary institutions, anyone can provide themselves with an education.


    I am convinced that the issue is most people feel getting a degree will make them entitled to a career, like your sorting hat analogy. Throughout my degree I noticed an absurd amount of people that were only taking my program for money (oil and gas) yet showed no genuine interest in the subject. During the recent decline of the industry I've noticed many of these people either lose their job or not even had found one in the first place. Yes tutions are generally very high cost, but it's very easy to get scholarships, regardless of grades, the difference is effort and time investment. Too many people feel life will be easy and I feel this stems from high school. I don't know about you guys feel, but the workload in high school is generally very low, which likely sets an attitude in many people of 'this is what to expect in life when I graduate' even if it's subconscious.


    Really it all boils down to how much effort someone is willing to put into their future (education or not). Anything can be successful, it's what you make of it.


    But again, thank you Funhaus for everything you create, I absolutely love your humour as well as how much you all interact with the community.

    Man this episode needs to be avaliable to everyone... Everyone needs to hear this... I've been busting my ass as a college drop out and I'm working in a Network Operations Center while being a creative... I've always been decent with a computer and I never thought it was that big of a deal but when you put everyone in my life around me I'm apparently a PC God. It led to my job that allows me to pay my bills and have some left over to keep learning and do what I love on the side. Never stop growing people because the world will never stop growing around you. Thanks for the awesome episode guys.
