    The auction price, while still trying to be high, was definitely part of being a meme. The original owner probably knew it was worth a lot, but the price is 345,678 yen, all sequential numbers. Could this actually be a price that the seller came up with for accurate fair value? Sure. A meme price to add to lore? More likely.

    ARshows has been recommending me this video basically since it came out. I wish I had watched it much sooner. It legitimately might be the greatest story ever told through a ARshows video that I've ever seen. At the very least, it's the best structured video I've ever seen. Wow. And to think I started watching this channel because the Michaelsoft Bimbows video also got recommended to me, I checked it for lulz, and noticed SO many other videos I had been recommended within the past year were by you. What a treat to have so many absolutely world class videos to dive through within a few day period. Good stuff dude.
