    Wait, why are we not taking productivity into account? Farming in Fallout is vastly more primitive than real life! Are you sure logging isn't more efficient in Skyrim? It's my go-to income supplement, has absolutely minimal downtime, only requiring the travel time to the head logger, and can be easily calculated with this weird new time efficiency method

    If you’ve already mentioned this in this vid or the previous one I apologize or if it won’t even hold a candle to the ones currently listed but I started thinking about it today, what about LEGO Games? I think the Max cap in most of them is 4B but in some like Lego Indiana Jones 2 you can have over 100B and keep going, but I’m not sure how much each stud would be worth converted to our currency

    Adam Smith was completely and utterly wrong. the worth of something is not the worth of the work put into it to make it or extract it, it's the market value. Something is worth something when someone else wants it and is willing to pay with something to get it. Labor theory of value destroyed countries, it was the main argument in marxist theory of economics. which was WRONG!!!!!!!!!

      Corn is way WAY more valuable in fallout than in any game with more corn than fallout. not only because it's less common, but because food is scarce and everyone needs it to survive. menawhile gold is worthless if you starve to death, so you are willing to trade a gold watch for some caps which you'll use to buy corn and food. and not a lot.

    Hey Austin, since you have pokemon in your mind lately, could you talk about this pokemon that has been bothering me, it's Cosmoem and it's said to have a height of 0.1meters yet weighting 999 kg being the heaviest pokemon ever. I'm definitely not good at physics or science in general but i just feel like there's something wrong about it. If it's actually normal then nvm all this

    You're misreading the chart at 16:35. The d there stands for pence, not days. As the webpage explains above that chart, pre-decimal English currency denominations were abbreviated L/s/d, from the Latin libra/solidus/denarius, Roman coins whose names and relative values were used for medieval coins. Thus, a goose would cost *3* days' labor, not 6, a pound of cheese would be a quarter day's labor, etc.

    While it might be $89 to kill a werewolf or any other kind of abomination, Witchers tend to be highly desirable one night stand lovers. So you are likely to get $89 for killing that werewolf AND some booty from one of the local women.

    but you can get way more emeralds by making an auto melon/pumkin farm then making a zombie convert a villager into a zombie villager then cure him with a weakness potion and a golden apple you can get a price of 1 pumkin per emerald so then steve would be much richer
