This thread is becoming exceedingly more interesting. The votes are in, and I'm totally hopping a train in a bikini.

@Odin that is one hell of a good use of emojis in that last post.

And ya, I think it is a tad cringy and exploitative, but then again, I'm Male and dont really have a right to an opinion on the issue. Given the chance, and a much better, body, I'd probably get half naked in my videos for a boost in funds...wait, I'm going to ride in a bikini, so never mind. Still doing that...

But my view is that I would never approve of someone exploiting their sexuality for money or fame. I dont like it. I guess I'm old school.

@Coywolf I don't think I would look good in a bikini.... but I would jump a train in a pressurized space suit... (or cheap equivalent exct...) spacebags and rubber-bands! ::eyepatch::

meeeeh, they're cool in my book. who are we, who is anyone to contradict them? they're living their lives, their way, might not be for everyone but I'm not gonna judge others like that. Not my place. you do you and I'll do me.

if it's satire i think it's OK....not my cup of tea this in particular but yeah i do respect satire

there was another pair i saw doing a musical version of the same...the chorus was

Van Life; Life in a van
It's boring old life
but hey, we're in a van!
Van life; Life in a van
Like, Share, Follow

couldn't have been more obviously satire, mocking the bastardization of freedom on the road (acknowledging in parentheses that this is not everyone, or even the majority of those who live in a vehicle) in the age of social media.

No matter the youtubers intention the video is just not really interesting or all that thought provoking. I think edited down to make a 5 minute skit would be funny, but it kind of dragged on and the girls voice is pretty annoying, and their only showing the bikini tops so we cant even see any ass....

The ordeal with the step drill was pretty funny, but I mean a 30min video of this shit!?? Come on! Edit it down and it might be tolerable.

those people seem like poseurs to me. Just my opinion. I think I'd like to see what their attitudes are like after a week or so of sleeping in a patch of woods under a tarp.

Other than that, as long as people aren't hurting anyone I don't really give a fuck what they do...

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $110.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
