Man, being a youtuber must suck. It's clear that a lot of these people no longer have any good ideas, and are just pushing out content because they have to.

I just saw one youtuber, who used to have cool content, ask a question with the name of her video, and then write YES on the still shot.

On Thursday, five federal regulatory agencies voted to roll back a key financial rule enacted following the 2008 financial crisis. The change will make it easier for banks to invest in venture capital and will tweak some restrictions on bank investing in hedge funds and private equity—all forms of riskier investing that Congress limited after 2010.

@StevenSaus I'm really curious what direction the show is going to take in the face of the protests. I know that the crew on the show were pretty vocal about standing up against police violence, and specifically called out actors who play cops to stand up against police violence with them.
