Couldn't he just, dunno, redo the lines or something? I mean, should be easy enough, and it immediately wouldn't be stealing.

Or maybe it would, because the line from him is owned by the company? I don't really know how this nonsense works. It just seems like this guy isn't just trying to get someting out from it, but also in the laziest way possible. Which is saying something, considering what we are talking about here.

Imagine having that business and pivoting to NFTs over just, like, a made-to-order lasagna delivery without specific cartoon branding

I looked up the "big cow lasagna" thing and discovered that. I am not sure in what specific way that specific lasagna brand is tied to this, but I am disappointed if not surprised that (based on some very superficial legwork) it doesn't seem to push the envelope past what Stouffer's has in nearly every grocery store's frozen section.

Fun fact I learned via Nintendo Life: over twice as many Virtual Boys were sold vs. there are people who have purchased NFTs.

Dan Olson's NFT video essay just dropped:


(CW: 2 hours of that stuff)

He's connecting it directly to the nature of bubble economies (focusing on the 2008 financial crisis) in the first part of the video. It is likely something you, as a person who has been alive since 2008, are not going to require much background on, and it's not taking a great level of personal insight to connect it to what the whole cryptocurrency market is.

... Is it worth watching?

Most of Dan's stuff is? I have a sick fascination with conspiracy theorists, so I know... too much about flat earthers, but his video on flat earthers was still pretty entertaining, and that one was almost two hours as well. (He also discusses the Flat Earth to White Christian Nationalist Pipeline that a lot of the normal flat earth debunking/dunking channels kind of ignore.)

I'd go almost as far as to say it's required viewing -- this is a systematic teardown of basically the entire crypto project since inception and a thorough skewering of it's proponents propaganda. This video is basically a public service for those confused by one of the plagues of our times

As I said on Twitter you can tell how uninspired and uncomfortable Fallon is from this because of how he isn't doing his signature awkward laugh back at the guest

*squinting into the middle distance* it has, a striped shirt. because i, wear... striped shirts sometimes
 
At some point there was a bullet point list of topics for this interview and multiple people saw the topic "talk about why we chose our apes" and the production team made a decision (in fairness, possibly under duress or because they felt unable to challenge Fallon/Hilton) to prepare props for this instead of cutting it from the segment.

I will second that the Dan Olsen video is very good. It can serve as your one stop shop for why you should not invest in crypto and to show to others if they happen to ask you about crypto.

I will say about the only thing that I didn't know already going in was most of the details about DAOs, but I put that partly down on the fact that, as implied in the video, DAOs are only stable for short periods of time in laboratory conditions
