Couldn't help myself with the title there. It also happens to be true here. Got a bit more than $1? Not quite $3? Then this is for you, my friend.

$3! The upper echelons of the lower gift levels, with a nice title to go with it! You always raise your hand in class and offer to help me clean the whiteboard. What a hero. I'll protect you from the bullies.

About

Dear Patreon,

Hi! It's me! Austin! I overthink pop culture, and primarily video games, by applying real-world logic and SCIENCE (or math or engineering or blah blah blah) and, hey, did you know that video games are FAKE?! THEY NEVER LIVE UP TO REALITY, SOMEHOW. Even Kerbal Space Program's planet is impossibly dense! WOW. I'M LITERALLY OFFENDED!

Just kidding. None of my videos are meant to be taken too seriously, but I do love to show people how much fun math can be. I like to think of what I do as being more-interesting versions of the word problems you get in school, and am on a mission to show people that math and science exist as tools to solve interesting, and oftentimes important (not in the case of MY show) problems. I think we do a good job at that. 

Sincerely,
Austin

The Bare Essentials
This is the bare, the barest minimum I need in order to make sure everyone gets paid for what they do. Making the videos we do is expensive, and I try to pay people fairly for their time. A lot of the YouTube machine requires paying people very little and creating a lot of turnover and burnout. I'm trying to fight against that as much as I can. If we make this goal, I'll never, ever, ever have to worry again about paying my editor and any other help I get making videos.
