I have been watching this channel since I was seven (2014) and the first video I watched was posted on my birthday I love this channel And ear biscuits help me sleep every night. ??
This is what I look like in my living room. RIVETING. ? link knocks over microphone ?
Can we see you with the VR?
I’ve been waiting all week just to see what the heck they looked like when doing the VR thing – worth it
Because your hair up so boxers or breese not naked
Why could we not see what they were playing…like we know the game but why could we not see what they were seeing
We had an ATARI, a Nintendo, and a SEGA Genius. The ATARI was my parents. They bought it for themselves for Christmas after they were first married. We didn't have the power pad. We had to go to the neighbor's house across the road to play with the one they had with their Nintendo.
I think what Rhett is realizing is the implications of a world where artificial experience may be "better" than real experience. Right now, things like video games are no replacement for life. You don't feel in a video game, you don't smell, you don't see with your real eyes. But if some day such a thing were possible, where you can basically have similar levels of feedback in an artificial experience as with a real one? Or maybe MORE feedback? What would that mean for this world?
If I were to guess, it would be that humanity will prefer the artificial one instead of the real one. We all share this world, and as with many cases with sharing, not everyone gets an equal amount. Lots of people don't go through this life really enjoying it as much as they could because maybe they're afraid of danger, or maybe they don't have the means, or maybe because other people got to the opportunities first, who knows? But if instead of all of us sharing this one world, every one of us could have our own world where we're basically a god? That's a very tempting proposition for many. And for someone who really enjoys this world, that can be a terrifying concept. Imagine all the people leaving for other worlds?
But I think it's inevitable. I don't really think we can escape it. As technology presses forward, eventually we seek to replace all complicated tasks with automation, right? That's essentially the goal, make everything more efficient, and consistent, take it out of the hands of the humans who are fragile and prone to error. Once that happens, many people who derive their purpose from what they do in this world will feel they're not needed anymore, and might prefer to look for another world. Maybe one day if space exploration were a thing, people would seek to leave Earth and find purpose in the stars. But before space exploration exists, I think there will already be virtual worlds to explore and experience in, and I don't know if that's a bad thing. As long as you can experience it with other real human beings, that could be fun, right?
Right now, we could be living in one of those said virtual worlds. Perhaps we are the product of a being who was bored with their existence, and so created this one.
This feels like it’s walking a fine line between being an Ear Biscuits and just being a GMM
Please Rhett buy Vader Immortal. It’s the best experience I’ve ever played in VR.
Link… Shakiest man in the world.
we went to each pole awkward pause of the earth lol.
should have filmed this on the full gmm studio set and had the whole space.
i had to stop listening to the audio version because i couldnt miss link in VR
It's cute to see them excited
see you guys at the winston salem show! thanks for bringing the vr headset rhett and showing it off very cool podcast today!
Ear Biscuits on my birthday is a good thing:)
Super hot is way fun! I think FPS games REALLY shine in VR.
why did they not record links game play of super hot it is not that hard to record come on
58:48 I though they were totally headed for the movie Surrogates.
Hello Rhett and Link from the Solomon Islands ??
So my gf bought us tickets to the Winston Salem show and we’re curious when do we receive these books? Is it like an Oprah thing where they’re under our seats when we arrive? The novel doesnt come out til 2 days before the show. BYMB
Link, the 60’s degrees is a nice warm day……u were dressed for the single digits lol
I've been using the quest lately and I'm glad to see Rhett enjoying it
Get out of my lodge!
link reminds me of mugatu from zoolander when he wears the VR headset and his hair separates lol
make a rhett's play (let's play pun, get it?)
Rhett described perfectly the VR systems in the movie Ready Player One. ??♀️ love itttt❤❤❤
Did you guys see Brian Redban on Joe Rogans podcast the other day wearing the Mythical Society patch?
Now that I've beat this game I can access all these different levels *smacks light fixture Lmao
One time I dropped my sunglasses into mediterranean sea, went out to cry about it and went back and then I found them. The power of belief is true Link!
Hearing Rhett talk about his new Quest made me smile. It truly is an amazing experience.
I knew immediately that it would’ve been Rhett using the VR and Link out camping.
A few weeks ago I had my Mama trying to land the lunar module! ? She loved it!
excellent podcast, those were some juicy ear biscuits for my brain.
PLEASE GET JOE ROGAN ON GMM, YOU COULD DO SOME LIKE MANLY MEAT GUESSING GAME IT WOULD BE THE BEST EPISODE PLEEEEEAAASE
I don't get the point in releasing a video version of the podcast if you're going to film a table with nobody there.
VR will be featured on tomorrow’s GMMorning. I am sure!
lol here in Central Oregon people be tanning in 60 degree weather
52:11–Rhett and Link being children for a minute.
With Rhett's hair looking bigger these days, I am 100% convinced Bigfoot exists.
"What are you? A freakin' war journalist!" ahahaha 14:16
Well that was the best VR ad I've ever seen. Definitely going to buy one now.
Link…….you really need to stop talking over Rhett. It is the single worst part of EB.
My house is usually set at 63-65 degrees Fahrenheit. So the fact that link would wear multiple long sleeved clothing items makes me concerned
Yep its already pretty chilly here in NY can't wait to see you guys in NYC on the 29th!!!
Smart, serious Rhett……..hmmmm. Ok. Me likey!
damn, i was playing with the thought to get me a quest since a while but i was holding out for the next best thing… the nintendo analagy did it for me, i remember that nintendo feeling as i am the same age as you!
All of the postulations about VR eventually lead to the Singularity. It's our destiny and I'm excited. I don't think it'll happen in my lifetime, but the concept of it dazzles me. I want to see where humanity goes with this. Or, if we wipe ourselves out, that's that. If that really is the ultimate fate of our species, I'm ready for it.
Also, you guys missed a great opportunity to say "VRginity."
If anyone is genuinely fascinated by all this VR stuff, James Dashner (author of the Maze Runner) wrote a trilogy called the Mortality Doctrine and it explores all of the stuff Rhett and Link talk about in this video relating to VR. It's very interesting, and I highly recommend it!
Zipper on pocket of sweatpants… Sounds like a missed opportunity..ha funny
The beacon's, the beacon's are lit, link calls for aide
Every time I do coursework I listen to ear biscuits on Spotify…. but when I heard the chaos going on, I immediately switched to the video and that coursework will have to be done another day…
Go away I'm Batin. Idiocracy
Yes, please come to Idaho! ?
Rhett, have you seen or read Ready Player One?
I love how EarBiscuits is actually a good, deep conversation. Not just the fun BS during the week. Keep up the great work, team!
Man, I love Ear Biscuits. I'ts so nice to not click away and just hearing stories. I'ts great.
I totally agree that tech is replacing those things. But if you really want to tackle that issue, you need to ask why that's happening. What causes the shift of using the tech as entertainment to using it as a lifestyle? In the evolving society (look at Japan) it is so difficult to take time away from work and school that you don't really have time for developing fulfilling relationships. They don't have time to raise their own children (they are fairly independent by age 7). There is shame associated with not over-achieving at school and work. You start to see that in the USA too. You have to make $$$, you have to get a degree, you gotta get married and have kids, you gotta raise the kids but you're less of a person if you stop working to raise them… There are societal issues that are causing people to search for a reason to live beyond these stressors. I can go on and I know other people my age are experiencing this too
haha billie eyelash lol
I like the helmet idea but you are to paranoid about technology in general robots ai vr we as people don't need these things there fun distractions and such yeah people will always take it to the extreme but this isn't the Terminator or like total recall or something humans are smert and I think we will get to a balanced point if the earth doesn't kill us first with weather and what not that's something to be paranoid about and no its not global warming that's not broad enough the Earth is getting more than just warm
When will the documentary be released for wide consumption? I'm really excited.
Anyone else watching this on VR?
Aw, when Link got up to put on the VR headset, he said, "now you aren't gonna get mad at me, are you?". Like a little brother talking to his big brother. Sweet.
Lol just got home from camping to this!? Nice. No service where I went so no gmm no youtube or anything. This is welcome
Doesnt realize you can remotely view it.
Links camping story should be the lost kid's phone story ?
"At some point, everything shifts." -unintentional wisdom from Link Neal
The small screenshots make it seem more violent (bloody) than it really is, since really they just shatter but it looks more like blood on that tiny screenshot.
37:46 – Yes perfect! i have to use that one.
Hey guys (if you read comments), companies have actually used VR to train people like supervisors and other bosses to be ready to fire someone professionally in the best way possible.
It's the zombification of America. Read comments below for proof:
Link is such a Hufflepuff in this video.
Just as they're finishing the video I realized that I read the title as RV weekend instead. They started talking VR and I was still thinking that it would a virtual reality RV trip, but after like another minute or two I forgot about it until the end of the video lmao
Just subscribed to podcast form, but I still vastly prefer the video version.
Why don’t you ever see their wives ?
Still waiting for Link to introduced himself as Rhett
I've never used VR, I have vertigo so I feel like it would REALLY mess with my head ??
Re: 1:01:27 – Its like that episode of Star Trek TNG, where they all get addicted to that game… watch out people! lol https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I3ih-sm6hxA
I dislike being cold so fall and winter are my least favorite seasons. I have started with the multiple layers already.Ahead of the trend Link!!!
"at some point, everything shifts"
If that device allows you to go anywhere, go to North Dakota. Just an idea for an Ear Biscuits.
At the beginning it was a vibe check
Link, you nerd, you were in NYC and you ate at Eataly?! No! My son is a classic Italian chef trained in Italy+NYC, and recently worked at Eataly for a bit. If you want actual good Italian in NYC (the best, per my kid – his former employer and still his fave restaurant) at a fair price, and without being disturbed for your celebrity, go to I-Sodi. Beyonce and JayZ go there for low profile, and James Difranco and Nick Offerman are neighborhood regulars. The food is delish and atmosphere is welcoming. In the same neighborhood is L'Artuzi, 2nd best. Nick Offerman hangout, I believe
46:32 Link- “ *Whoom*…… I killed that guy.” ?????
I'd like to hear more VR talk, Rhett's projections are intriguing.
no joke i may have sprained my wrist playing beat saber in a chinese mall. I play hard (~.~) the pain kept me awake :/
