    Try not to chug 4 Red Bulls immediately before making your video. To many words in such a short time and overkill on the detail.

      Its rude to assume that he drinks energy drinks because he talks fast. Linus has a problem with cocaine and hes putting his best effort to deal with it

      As someone who has worn masks a shit ton, the secret is pulling one of the straps (on the back of your head) higher up where the crown of your skull is, and the other strap at the bottom where your neck and head meet.

    the recovery software they're using reminds me of the built in setup from my family's first computer. IBM Aptiva running Win95, after about 8 years of use, the drive started failing. any time we turned on the pc, it would try to go into a data recovery mode, where it analyzed each block of data to see if it had good or bad sectors. every time we ran it, we'd get more and more bad sectors. thankfully by that time we had 2 computers, to which i more or less commandeered the other for myself
