$15 mil is a lot of money for sure, but considering the audience size and time spent viewing his stuff, it's really not that much compared to a lot of other places in the entertainment industry. A late night talk show is considered hugely successful if it gets only a few million viewers, and hosts have been paid sometimes double that amount.

Or consider Howard Stern at his peak of popularity on terrestrial radio, with a listener base of up to 20 million -- radio stations paid millions of dollars in FCC fines to keep him around, so you can imagine how many tens of millions he was bringing and sharing in for himself. Hell, he was paid $100 million per year to go to satellite for an audience a tenth that size.

So don't go jumping off a bridge just yet... If anything this article illustrates how poorly you are paid for driving BILLIONS of impressions to a website owned by a company built on turning those measly clicks and views into mountains of cash.

Yes, but subs and active watchers don't equate to the same thing. That's the thing about Youtube a lot of subs don't even come close to regularly watching a channel they've subscribed to and the even bigger issue is partial views. Most people only watch a few seconds or just skip through. And lastly people were paying to listen to Stern - god knows why - where as this is ad driven. So no, they're still vastly overpaid relative to what they do. Start paying them only for people who come and watch an episode from start to finish, or start charging to watch them, and watch how fast that dries up.

Not really. Programming principles like these are generally pretty timeless and broadly applicable. Of course, some are better than others, and execution is critical.

Yeah, you're right. There's zero difference between 4 guys making a game for a few grand and a team of 200 or so making one for 50 million bucks.

And those principles were great...in the early 90s. It's a whole different ball of wax now.

"PewDiePie has nearly 50 million subscribers"

Ok, couple this with Trump's win and you know Armageddon is almost at hand. Just look at that list of Youtube "stars" and what they make and tell me the fucking Apocalypse isn't almost here.

I'm rather disappointed they didn't use La Marseillaise as the music in the video. And $22 bucks? Yeah that's a bit too pricey. $5 sure, but that's about it.

I think westworld is good but not great. it's about as simplified and obvious as it could be. they could have used their time more wisely, but the writing wasn't there. it was devoid of content by the final episodes

I'll never understand comments like these. I don't think there's anything simple or obvious about it. And I don't mean plot twists, but the philosophical and moral issues they're wrestling with over technology, sentience, freedom, etc. The writing for this show is head and shoulders above 99.9% of everything else on the TV. They couldn't really go any heavier with it without it becoming completely obtuse for the vast majority of viewers. And in the end HBO is still a company that wants to make money, not create philosophical treatises discussed in university symposiums. It's entertainment, not academia. I don't know what more you could reasonably expect.

Once again we see what the GOP really thinks about individual and State's rights. Another antique leftover from the bad ol' days of Reagan, firmly in the pocket of the booze lobby thinks booze is fine and pot is not.

As far as I'm concerned G2A has shot themselves in the foot by raising prices on their "insurance". That shit shouldn't exist in the first place but a buck was reasonable, but now it's over $4. Hells no! Even Kinguin has gone to $3, but at least you can go to a lot of seller sites directly and bypass that nonsense.

I'll never understand why people use these things when it turns out there the ones being used. No surprise Google is the worst offender in this case.

I wonder how many workers leave their crappy old laptops on purpose and say it was confiscated so work will buy them a new one?

I think prison for a couple of years and no license for him for life would be a good start.

I was thinking in context of legalities and avoiding fraud. Most people find it very difficult to forge someone's signature. And this is a good thing. When my partner and I opened our first restaurant we had to countersign all checks for major purchases. There's no way either of us could have forged the other's signature.

I agree Blue, in the age of content on demand on your schedule, it's a little weird feeling to have to wait a week for each new ep. I suppose on the bright side it gives time for theories to simmer before being absolutely shattered or confirmed. :p

It's also to build hype for the series as it goes along, as well as avoid major spoilers.

My penmanship has always sucked and I've generally always written in that combination of print/cursive anyway. I don't see a need for it, beyond being able to sign your name. That one is actually important.

I might feel sorry for this millionaire if they locked him inside a rape dungeon and mutilated him.
Giving him a hard time at work for a few months? Please.

Well, welcome to the psychopaths club, friend! Apparently not feeling sorry for rich people makes you a monster. I didn't realize there were so many of us in the world.

Psychopathy is a personality disorder characterized by a lack of empathy...

I'm a psychopath because I don't feel sorry for some multi-millionaire who had a tough time at work for a few months? You're fucked in the head, you know that?

Cutter, you're an egotistical, self-centered, loud mouthed Canadian douche that most of us wouldn't think twice about throwing off the side of a tall bridge...but this place wouldn't be the same without ya, sooo...just shut up and let it go and stop letting little things trigger you! You're as bad as our President-elect sometimes, man...

=-Rigs-=

Takes one to know one, right? Will you assholes shut up with the hipster-speak already? I'm so sick of people saying dumb shit like trigger and salty. It's pop-culture bullshit for weak-minded people. And you know what happens when you don't call people on their bullshit? They just keep right on doing it. Like you. So do the rest of US a favor already and jump off that fucking bridge because you're annoying and tiresome. I should have put you on ignore with the rest of the trolls and clowns around here long ago. Consider that now rectified.

“It’s no place for germs, much less fish or squid, or any life as we know it,” he added. “But as with the methane seas on Titan — Saturn’s main moon — it raises the question of whether some truly novel life forms could exist in these exotic, cold liquids.”

A sea of methane. Fascinating.
