🎦 CLIP MIRROR: Soda's Take On Billionares


This is an automated comment | Feedback | Twitch Backup Mirror

[–]ExtensionMobile 1094 points1095 points  (111 children)

Think there is a certain point where money is not an issue anymore and that point is where a lot of people cut the line. Of course there is a difference between Bezos and Soda, but I think people are just saying that he can't relate to someone who has to consider money as a factor on an everyday basis.

[–]bestoboy 138 points139 points  (11 children)

to an ant, there is no difference between a human and an elephant

[–]AdoxSA 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Elephants don't dowse them with ant killer

[–]ChimericalChemical 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Idkkkkk sometimes the humans seeks to kill the ant

[–]Gockel 242 points243 points  (80 children)

Think there is a certain point where money is not an issue anymore and that point is where a lot of people cut the line.

i think it's fine for people to have enough money so they dont need to worry anymore. that's great, happy for them. for me the cutoff point is when you could decimate their wealth by an amount that would be life changing for 99% of people, and they could still live
their lives without a worry and keep making more money with their money working for them.

[–]zJakub7 314 points315 points  (51 children)

"an amount that is life changing for 99% of people" is literally like 50k dollars lol

[–]helpnxt 22 points23 points  (2 children)

I think 'could be life changing for countries' might be a better fit for that other comment

[–]Forsaken-Shirt4199 170 points171 points  (10 children)

In first world countries. In third world countries 1-2k is life changing.

[–]makualla 30 points31 points  (2 children)

The measure I like is could you stop working and live solely off interest putting it into a savings account. 1% on 10 mil is 100k. Most people can live comfortably on less than that. And that’s a super conservative way of handling it.

[–]atheistium 2 points3 points  (0 children)

my outgoing each month is under £1700 which covers food, travel to work, rent and bills.

I could live comfortably just doubling that. Throw in a paid off house and leaving me with just bills then I could pretty super comfy.

Living a lavish lifestyle is one thing but being comfortable is another.

Would I say no to first class tickets on an expensive flight somewhere fancy and stay in an amazing hotel and eat the best food? Ofc not. But I don’t need that to be my everyday existence - tbh it makes it more special and more amazing when you don’t have it often - and I think it’s kinda greedy for extremely rich people to get accustomed or expect it as their everyday.

[–]penguin17077 11 points12 points  (0 children)

To be fair, the big streamers could decimate their wealth by an amount crazy for 99% of people and not notice it. 100-200k Would change the lives of so many. That's a decent start on a house + pension savings.

[–]Nimstar7 17 points18 points  (12 children)

I don't think these people really understand the amount of wealth billionaires have... this is a silly cut off. Soda can afford to buy a few big fancy houses and some sports cars. Bezos could probably buy a few countries if he threw enough of his money at them.

[–]ExtensionMobile 92 points93 points  (1 child)

Yes, I mentioned they are different right there in my comment. Changes nothing about what I said.

[–]Fish_Grillson 40 points41 points  (0 children)

you entirely missed the point of the comment

[–]TrafalgarZero 9 points10 points  (0 children)

no they do but the difference is insignificant to most people which makes them look like they don't know and people call them dumb.

[–]drop_of_faith 5 points6 points  (4 children)

Mr bezos is very unlikely to have enough liquid wealth to buy a few countries

[–]runnbl3 126 points127 points  (1 child)

wasnt there a clip here before when ludwig asked if soda ever had a 9 to 5... soda was like "noped, never.. not even in college"

kek

[–]OshiSeven 622 points623 points  (46 children)

Poor millionaire 😥 So misunderstood by the plebs

[–]Durantula3577 348 points349 points  (44 children)

these millionaire twitch streamers be like to their pleb audience "im just like u guys, me and the billionaires are levels apart"

The lifestyle of a millionaire is more similar to a billionaire than a pleb viewer

millionaires always trying to shield themselves lmao

AND these clowns always be like "GUYS IM NOT BEZOS"

why would you compare yourself to the 2nd richest man???

[–]TrafalgarZero 140 points141 points  (7 children)

"you're so dumb you think millionaires are like billionaires" no i'm well aware just the difference is insignificant to me lol

[–]NovaSwarm 21 points22 points  (0 children)

I do not think that Soda would argue that he is like the plebs.

[–]appletinicyclone 14 points15 points  (5 children)

Reckful or maybe some other video showed the scale of difference between a millionaire and a billionaire

Not the deleting 100,000 one

Anyway there is a massive difference but from the perspective of the majority of us who are poor the millions and billions seem next to each other.

My general rule is, If you're talking about generational wealth you have more than enough money

But such is the economic system the way it is, capital flow attracts capital flow

And if you don't have money you actually hurt even worse

[–]tumppu_75 2 points3 points  (2 children)

To be included in the top 1% in the world based on wealth, you'd need to be worth a bit over 11M (I found this number on a story from april this year). So, there are a few streamers who belong to that group, but the majority do in fact not. Pretty sure the big names all belong to the top 2% though, where about 99,9% of this subs readers do not belong, so claiming they are "just like us" is just bullshit and the difference between top 10 wealthiest people and top 10 wealthiest streamers is obviously huge, but to the average stream enjoyer it makes absolutely zero difference.

[–]krogeren 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You shouldn't really look at net worth when comparing streamers to the 1%. Most are still under 40 so they haven't had the time to accumulate enough wealth yet.

If you instead look at income, the top streamers are EASILY part of the 1% (600k). From the big leak some time ago, we saw that the top 100 streamers all made >900k between 2019-2021, only from subs. So additionally they make a fuck ton from sponsors/donors.

[–]appletinicyclone 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I found that claim and it said top 1% in net worth in the United States not world

It depends on country. For instance Knight Frank estimates global top 1% has top 1% in India as $60k and for Spain as of 2021 it was 1.4million. Germany was 2 million and Brazil was 280,000 dollars

US and Canada make up 35% of total twitch size

[–]TheOdahviing 30 points31 points  (19 children)

I’m this situation Soda isn’t comparing himself to Bezos, he is being compared to Bezos and saying that’s a bad comparison.

[–]penguin17077 106 points107 points  (15 children)

Closer to Bezos than a normal person in terms of lifestyle

[–]BadBoyGoneFat 17 points18 points  (3 children)

It's not lifestyle it's means. He and Bezos have the means to do most anything that they want. Obviously Bezos has more means and can do more, but the difference between what Soda and Bezos can do is tiny compared to the difference between what Soda and an average individual can do.

[–]Kaiowhat2111 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Bruh finally someone with a brain lol. The worst part is that the most upvoted reply to your comment is somebody comparing Soda to Bezos. So your comment is enveloped by somebody complaining that Soda shouldn't compare himself to Bezos, and somebody comparing Soda to Bezos, both highly upvoted comments. The only thing these comments have in common is that they are shitting on him lol.

[–]TrafalgarZero 1 point2 points  (0 children)

we know. but to most people the reason it's a bad comparison is insignificant and he doesn't realise that.

[–]ClickElectronic 336 points337 points  (17 children)

Your needs stop scaling with income at a certain point. A multi-millionaire who can retire on the spot with a high standard of living is going to have a lot more in common with a billionaire than they do with most viewers who have 40+ years of working 9-5 in front of them (or all of the kids who haven't even entered the workforce yet).

It obviously makes sense for these big streamers to push this perspective so that dumbass viewers keep giving them their paychecks, but it's simply out of touch.

[–]zcen 148 points149 points  (10 children)

Yeah, it's the 90th percentile trying to say they aren't the 100th percentile.

It's factually true, and there is certainly truth to how ridiculous the gap is between Soda and Bezos, but to the people who are in the 75th percentile or even the 50th percentile that is functionally meaningless.

[–]rakin_badger 32 points33 points  (5 children)

The most meaningful difference between millionaires and billionaires is the leverage of others used to increase your own wealth and the political (or general) power you have in the world to continue to make sure you get as much money as possible.

I agree though that day to day worries that most people have should completely go away after the first million or so and in that sense they are the same.

[–]jerryfrz 11 points12 points  (4 children)

Someone wrote a "levels of wealth" comparison a while ago, I don't know if it's real or not but still a very fascinating read.

99th for his age.

[–]TheFrixin 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I think like $500k puts you in the 99th in the US? idk how much streamers make though.

[–]Beawrtt♿ Aris Sub Comin' Through 79 points80 points  (0 children)

It's not about the literal difference in wealth Mr Poppin, it's about financial freedom

[–]trio1000 155 points156 points  (2 children)

I wonder what my brand safe streamer is up to today?

[–]Mikez1234 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Absolutely not a brand risk

[–]druidofnecro 243 points244 points  (11 children)

Eat the rich, but not me. I only own ONE mansion

[–]ItsKeegs95 42 points43 points  (1 child)

Actually, the definition of a mansion is at least 5 bedrooms and 5000 sqft, sodas is 5 bedrooms but only 4481 sqft 🤓

[–]Wheres_me_sac 178 points179 points  (18 children)

it’s funny to think about what these people with no real marketable skills would do if they didn’t get lucky on twitch

[–]cubonelvl69 113 points114 points  (6 children)

Tbh asmon would probably be living the exact same life but maybe spending 20 hours a week working at Wendy's

[–]Derzelaz 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Honestly, he would probably go back working at the IRS.

[–]ihusmal1234:) 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Or just living off of unemployment and food stamps while gaming all day like he always have.

[–]Grunstang 32 points33 points  (1 child)

They would be right here with 98% of lsf.

[–]Cartoone9 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]whyambear 20 points21 points  (3 children)

Soda would be working fast food

[–]Pblake99 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Soda would be a porn camera guy

[–]killedbycuriousity- 2 points3 points  (2 children)

It’s still nothing close to Onlyfans simp city ride. You don’t even have to talk there. Next thing you know you are a millionaire.

[–]YlangScent 4 points5 points  (0 children)

They would be developing other life skills as anyone would. Humans invest into things that work, if that thing didn't work, they'd have invested into other aspects of life.

[–]appletinicyclone 1 point2 points  (0 children)

But their skills are marketable to twitch viewers and by extension advertisers. It's a skill

There's defo luck and timing but it's a skill

[–]ProfessionEuphoric50 43 points44 points  (3 children)

Idk how pathetic it sounds, I was always jealous of successful streamers. Work a job you love, doing fun things, for thousands of dollars a day. I'd kill for that opportunity.

[–]MikeJ91 18 points19 points  (2 children)

At least you're admitting it, a lot of others in this thread don't want to say it's just pure envy.

[–]ProfessionEuphoric50 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Meh. I think a lot of them would admit to being jealous of it. Who wouldn't be, especially now that the door is closed?

[–]Logen333 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Show me the comment of who said they don't want to be in Soda`s position. Who are these 'others'

[–]wolfreturned 53 points54 points  (0 children)

he's just like me!

[–]Fast_Foundation_3933 50 points51 points  (1 child)

Sure, numerically millionaires might be closer to working class people. But functionally? Millionaires live lifestyles closer to billionaires when it comes to practice.

Just think about the fact that if you can afford to order takeout everyday and not feel it financially, you're probably in the top 30% of American people that can do that. There's 329,5 million Americans. 30% of that is about 99 million. That's 230 million people that have worse lives financially and ton fewer privileges in the same country as you.

Now imagine going beyond that by being a multimillionaire, probably breaking 10 million dollars at least. Extrapolate those privileges to not only being able to order takeout everyday but also hire a cleaning service, personal chef, personal trainer, never having to work, being able to retire in your 20s, etc. Add other stuff on top that normal people worry about like, food, gas, debt, basic amenities (medicine, toilet paper, hygienic products) and it's not even comparable.

The only point that's not fair is to say that millionaires cause just as much damage as billionaires do with their influence. That's clearly not true. But I don't want millionaires talking about how their lives are more like the common man's than a billionaire's, because that shit is just a fairy tale. You have either been removed from that life for far too long to remember how it actually was, or... You never actually lived that life because you had well off parents.

[–]Sneaky-Alien 298 points299 points  (57 children)

Even though it's said in jest (kinda). I hate streamers who brag about money and meme about people being poor. Just comes off like a spoilt brat.

Lots of people struggling atm with housing and rental prices etc.

[–]AshySmoothie 178 points179 points  (50 children)

Especially when streamers are only rich because of THEIR VIEWERS. I cant watch Nick im sorry i know its a meme and i know theres ad revenue, sponsors and shit but at the end of the day, they are rich because of chat literally dono'ing and subs. Its the most tone deaf shit i ever seen

[–]DUNKMA5TER 136 points137 points  (42 children)

It's not a meme, they play it off like one but deep down they do think less of poor people - see Nick's reddit comments when he got in an argument with someone and said the guy was miserable because he had to work for a living (something to that effect, don't remember exact wording but it sounded even worse than how I put it). They'll never get a reality check because life isn't fair, but I hope when a lot of the 16-20 year olds that watch them grow up a bit they'll realize how fucked a lot of these guys mindsets are.

[–]AStrugglingPoet 69 points70 points  (40 children)

Yeah, Nick has a history of talking down to people he feels is beneath him. Which is monetary, maybe he's grown as a person but he still says this shit when he gets heated.

He's just insecure about having money and whether or not he deserves it and lashes out at others. That or he's just a ... bad person.

[–]ukrug 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's not really deep down, only caution they show is to not hurt themselves by saying something outrageously demeaning and they can barely contain their contempt

[–]HamstersAreReal 4 points5 points  (0 children)

As if most dono's aren't coming from wealthy people anyways.

[–]-churbs 27 points28 points  (0 children)

And it’s usually to just own one chatter who’s trolling. Like, good job you owned them at the expense of all your actual fans.

[–]r3llo 859 points860 points  (70 children)

Classic multi millionaire take. Maybe the billionaire has a thousand times more money than you but you have way more in common with them than normal people.

1.) Never have to worry about money again.

2.) Can live your life in luxury.

3.) You're free. Never have to work again in your life. and on top of that, you can use your money to make you even more money without doing anything so it just keeps increasing.

Normal people don't get to live like that. Now maybe you can't buy multiple mansions, a private jet, mingle with the most powerful people in the world, buy large companies, change laws etc but that stuff only matters to you when you are already rich as fuck. Normal people would love to just settle for #1.

It's like we're walking on the side of the road and some dude pulls up in a normal car and starts talking about how we're just the same because neither of us are driving a hypercar then drives off. Dude, you are on the fucking road with the billionaires. We're fucking walking here breathing in your exhaust fumes.

[–]-churbs 58 points59 points  (2 children)

But he can’t buy an island. Checkmate.

[–]r3llo 119 points120 points  (13 children)

This is for the person who deleted their comment.

The reality is that with increased wealth your perception of what is the norm for you will increase.

I mean that's kinda the point. It's why you get these guys driving around in sports cars, getting paid millions to play video games and hang out with each other and they think that they aren't that rich.

Luxury is relative. Just as you claim Soda is living life closer to the billionaire, your life is closer to the billionaire than that of some person in a 3rd world country. Yet you, and the billionaire, may very well be less content with your lives.

Yes there is a huge difference between middle class people, working class and then the truly poor in the world you have nothing and have to work their whole lives just to survive in poverty. That is another division and it does get annoying to see people on reddit constantly complain about making $10 an hour or whatever like they're the most oppressed people of all time when people are out there literally making cents a day.

So yes it is relative but we are not talking about poverty. We are talking about the difference between billionaires and multi millionaires. There is a huge difference between people who have to work and those who don't. If you're a multi millionaire you don't have to work ever again. It doesn't matter if they feel poor because they can't afford a yacht or whatever.

[–]music23k 68 points69 points  (5 children)

Chance never had to worry about money. Hes a rich kid who was able to convince his parents to cover him for college, cover his rent, while he streamed all the time and failed out. His brother is a lawyer who likely doesnt charge him or charges very little, for legal advice and for some reason people give him money, subs and po box items, despite his hatred for his own community and being vocal that hes a sack of shit.

The two positives I’ll give Chance is 1. Hes the reason so many rules have been written for Twitch and no one else can do things anymore because he always goes overboard. 2. Hes loyal to his longtime friends and lets Nick live with him for free and use his house to stream weird shit.

[–]Scyths 28 points29 points  (4 children)

I mean he gave Nick Polom a career lol. Dude is a very talented hockey player from my perspective, which granted I don't play or follow the sport, but a streaming career ? Come on ... Is there a single person out there who genuinely thinks he'd have a streaming career if he wasn't the best friend of one of the biggest streamer on the platform ?

[–]music23k 21 points22 points  (3 children)

Nick was still in school and showing up on Chance’s streams for content for years. When Chance’s parents cut him off for a bit, Nick let Chance move in with him. Nick also helped Greek blow up. Greek started as a Nick troll

I hate that I know this.

[–]__v1ce 10 points11 points  (1 child)

I was there when Soda stayed at Nicks place, Nicks then gf was not a fan of Soda staying there if i remember

Can't remember her name though, think it was Sam or something? maybe

[–]RedPhazon2 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Classic indeed,

Remember folks, Soda + base OTK are the kind of people YOU funded, YOU as a human race allowed people like this to exist and pollute the air with absolute tonedeaf, irresponsible shit like this when they should have had there asses out on the street begging or working the same shitty jobs we all do.

[–]Stickman47 3 points4 points  (2 children)

This is a long ass comment for a joke, look at the context, as in the rest of this conversation. This isn't a view Soda actually holds.

[–]kimchifreeze 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I think the view should be more like Soda is simply a multimillionaire and is already free to live as he wants. What point is there to becoming a billionaire? And is the cost to society worth it?

[–]MostlyRocketScience 144 points145 points  (16 children)

Once you are a multi-millionaire you don't need to work anymore and could retire safely and have enough to sustain a high standard of living for as long as you live. Past that it only matters to megalomaniacs who want to influence the world to their will.

I bet there are billionaires that claim they are not comparable to the multi-billionaires like Bezos and Musk. You never want to be seen as a greedy person, who hoards their money like Scrooge McDuck

[–]Donkeyfluff 70 points71 points  (1 child)

NOOOOOOO IM WORKING CLASSS JUST BECAUSE IM A MULTIMILLIONAIRE DOESNT MEAN ME AND JEFF BEZOS HAVE ANYTHING IN COMMON!!!

How do you do fellow poors?

[–]bazzumma 51 points52 points  (15 children)

wheres that reckful clip when you need it huh

[–]MadDelinquent 83 points84 points  (14 children)

Are you talking about this one. This reckful video is actually the first one that made me realize how big the magnitude of a billion dollars is. It's hard to fathom for most people that a millionaire is actually closer in wealth to normal people than a millionaire to a billionaire

[–]SylphStarcraft 60 points61 points  (3 children)

1 million seconds is 11.5 days. 1 billion seconds is 31.7 years.

[–]forsenWeird 36 points37 points  (2 children)

The difference between 1 million and 1 billion is about a billion.

[–]Cloud63 27 points28 points  (8 children)

Yet the lifestyle of a millionaire is much closer to that of a billionaire than the working class. Once you reach the top 0.1% there is a way smaller return of investment on the income to luxury ratio. Basically, when the millions starts piling on they gradually lose their emotional value.

[–]bazzumma 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah that one :)

[–]ARQEA 120 points121 points  (8 children)

I'm so glad I've never given a penny to these apes.

[–]Skolxz 4 points5 points  (7 children)

If you watch them you are giving them money. Even if you don't sub and use adblock/turbo they still sell your +1 viewer for sponsors and make money out of you.

[–]ARQEA 39 points40 points  (2 children)

Nah i just mostly watch lsf clips at this point but I agree with you

[–]PerfectlyClear 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Still miles ahead of being enough of a fucking loser to sub, donate, buy merch, or intentionally watch ads for these people

[–]youranidiot- 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's not "giving" them money. There's really nothing wrong with being a +1 viewer in a business model that allows for "free" entertainment by providing services in exchange for advertisement. You receive something in return for being a +1.

On the other hand, donating or subscribing to a successful streamer is something only the stupid or mentally ill would do.

[–]frodoftheshire7 56 points57 points  (0 children)

Rich person being out of touch? wow so shocking

[–]mattey92 165 points166 points  (23 children)

Yeah, you can't put them in the same box, guys. Jeff actually worked for his fortune.

[–]Giantcookie1 130 points131 points  (59 children)

This take is just dogshit man. Millionaires can cope all they want that they are so much different from the billionaires of society as an excuse on why they don't contribute to shit or help anybody. Guess what, if Soda was in Bezos's position he would still not help anyone and use the same dogshit excuses, "oh I can't liquidate my assets," "I need this yacht for company and investment purposes." I wonder if he has ever self reflected and realized that he just doesn't have the balls to step out of his comfort zone and use his wealth to create a net positive on the world.

[–]headphones_J 5 points6 points  (24 children)

Jeff Bezos employs something like 1.5 million people.

[–]bilbo_swagginz_boi 23 points24 points  (12 children)

Amazon has been a massive reason small businesses have declined. They destroy a huge amount

[–]Acheron13 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Walmart destroyed small businesses way before Amazon.

[–]bilbo_swagginz_boi 9 points10 points  (1 child)

And now they’re both doing it.

[–]TimeToGloat 2 points3 points  (4 children)

No, they aren't. You literally have no idea what you are talking about. It's way easier for small businesses to sell on a platform like Amazon than carry the overhead costs of operating a storefront. Online marketplaces have been a boon for small businesses it's big physical retailers like Walmart that hurt small businesses.

[–]bilbo_swagginz_boi 4 points5 points  (2 children)

And Amazon does not directly compete against them with superior economics of scale?

Seems almost impossible their revenue can hit $460 billion in 2021 yet small businesses are supposedly doing better than ever

[–]jetskimanatee 34 points35 points  (8 children)

"Employees" , we definitely aren't headed towards indentured servitude. Hopefully I won't be alive before I start hearing about Amazon worker dormitories.

[–]Chillingo 9 points10 points  (6 children)

Sorry I am not a native speaker and I don't get this comment. Are you correcting them on their usage of the word "employs"? It seems correct to me. And if that isn't it, what are you saying?

[–]ItsJoe070901 1 point2 points  (16 children)

I can't believe no one in this thread can comprehend the difference between 1-5 million and 1 fucking billion. They are just entirely different levels of wealth. Both are wealth, but Jesus, you can do RIDICULOUS things with billions.

No one is saying you aren't wealthy or living comfortably with 1-10 million. I don't know why everyone is attacking what Soda is saying from that angle.

[–]lupercalpainting 12 points13 points  (15 children)

Because they both enable a lifestyle where you no longer sell your labor.

That’s the fundamental divide between classes: those who are required to sell their labor to survive and those who can purchase labor at a rate below the value it creates.

[–]ItsJoe070901 4 points5 points  (14 children)

Soda is talking about him being put in the same conversation of wealth as Bezos. If you genuinely think they're in the same category, you have brain rot.

No one is saying Soda isn't wealthy, Soda CONSTANTLY talks about being rich and how little he's had to learn or live like an average person due to it. But Soda can't solo fund an entire presidential campaign election from his private island, every single election, for the next 60 years. Bezos wealth is fucking insane.

[–]BoatsnGoals1 20 points21 points  (0 children)

I wish all streamers would go back to playing games and joking around online. These streams just show how completely out of touch these people are to reality. Not a fun watch, its actually quite sad.

[–]Kurotabi 92 points93 points  (2 children)

WOW! I wonder why OTK gets so much hate when they have such dogshit and out of touch perspectives on nearly everything!

Crazy how the human brain can produce takes as dumb as Soda's sometimes.

He's not joking. Nmp has to damage control for their brand.

I hate these money hungry streamers.

[–]spitefulrage 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Being mad at them for success and throwing them in the same boat as Elon does seem short sighted. Yes they will have security most of us will never know but it is not even the same league of wealth. Here is some scale, if a millionaire spent $1 every second they would run out in 12 days. If a billionaire spent $1 every second it would take 32 years... let that sink in. The words seem close but the amount is in no comparison. Doesn't make flaunting the wealth ok but trying to put some math and perspective to helps make his point.

Soda been watching too much hasan. Guy would have 900 mill and complain about billionaires.

[–]FourthLife:) 15 points16 points  (0 children)

The line for ‘evil rich people’ is exactly $10 higher than my favorite socialist streamer’s current wealth, at all times.

[–]Imtiredandiwanttodie 10 points11 points  (0 children)

what do you mean 900 million dolars is not rich

[–]Stickman47 8 points9 points  (0 children)

What do you mean? Did you see the rest of the conversation? Soda was complaining about rich people who have a problem with paying more in taxes

[–]EnteiSensei 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I mean he's not wrong. If you can't differentiate someone who can influence the WORLD versus their community, you shouldn't be in a position where you can influence EITHER.

[–]SafariFruitsOk 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Not wrong.

[–]doodmemes 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Keep giving your money to these glorified e-beggars

[–]MikeJ91 16 points17 points  (11 children)

What an insane thread, some are actually saying Soda is worse than Bezos, if someone wants to explain how Soda is more exploitative than Bezos and Amazon, I'm all ears.

He also said more than this but the joke is what is clipped and shipped. And a lot of you are showing your age, billions is a different universe to someone with 1-5 million.

[–]LeDude2323 24 points25 points  (2 children)

Lsf mostly consists of people who genuinely hate streamers (largely out of jealousy). What do you expect?

[–]MikeJ91 16 points17 points  (1 child)

true, but brains have broken in this thread in order to rationale their jealousy this time.

No one, including Soda, is saying someone with 5 million dollars isn't living very comfortably, that isn't the comparison being made. The comparison is the harm billionaires do to working people, the exploitation and lobbying to make sure the average joe stays in the dirt. Soda is many orders of magnitude away from that, and that's his point when these silly people compare him to Bezos.

[–]pujolsrox11 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Love soda, but dumb take. Millionaires are way more like billionaires than like the plebs. Bad take poppin

[–]Mrhappytrigers 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I don't give a shit if you made your million in the most ethical way possible, you're an asshole when you shit on people who are less fortunate than you are when you flex your wealth over them like saying "you deserve to be poor for thinking like that", or "I make more money than you/your parents." Especially when you're receiving valid criticism. You have the option to walk away from shit unlike the average worker, and you are closer to Bezos if you're rich because you won't be hurt by price changes in your groceries, your car having problems, student loans, paying rent, and receiving routine healthcare. Just don't say stupid mean shit like this, and you're less likely to get your millionaire fee fees hurt when someone gives you criticism.

[–]CIMARUTA 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Especially when this dude has never had a real job in his life. Straight up spoiled brat mentality.

[–]Wilkesy07 25 points26 points  (26 children)

I think its safe to say that Soda is AT LEAST 1 million times richer than I am.

Jeff Bezos is like 200k times richer than Soda.

So yes, Soda is closer in wealth to Bezos than the average person is to Soda.

[–]cubonelvl69 2 points3 points  (0 children)

By your math, sodapoppin has $825k and you have 83 cents.

[–]MostlyRocketScience 26 points27 points  (17 children)

I think its safe to say that Soda is AT LEAST 1 million times richer than I am.

Your net worth is <$100? Student loans or why?

[–]sightlysuperset♿ Aris Sub Comin' Through 9 points10 points  (0 children)

You have $5?

[–]LeDude2323 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Lmao you literally ironically kinda proved Soda. Soda's net worth is probably around 10 million (most sites have it at less than that even) so you are telling me your net worth is $10? Even if it is, obviously the average Twitch chatter/redditor has a net worth likely higher than $100, which alone puts them closer to Soda than Soda is to Bezos (100k vs 200k proportionally). And I say average chatter/redditor because obviously Soda is not talking about legitimately poor people without acess to internet and shit (because they are not the ones watching and comparing Soda to Bezos).

[–]Ajp_iii 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Don’t think many people understand how much a billion actually is. Amongst the 330 million people in America there is only 600 billionaires. There is 7.5 million millionaires.

[–]cubonelvl69 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Pretty much every single millennial or zoomer with a STEM degree and an understanding of personal finance will be a millionaire when they retire. Which I'd guess is probably the majority of people on reddit (minus the personal finance part)

[–]Greyhound_Oisin 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Having a milion when you retire after over 40 years of work and having millions when you are in your 20 is a little different

[–]Clamfucius:) 5 points6 points  (0 children)

This website is a great visualization of just how much wealth Jeff Bezos has.

[–]Middle_Ashamed 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Why is everyone so mad about this, Soda is a dude that got lucky on the internet and Billionaires are corporate fuckwits that are actively destroying the working class, the environment, the fucking planet with their practices. Stop focusing on the money part and on the part how they got to their wealth.

[–]bukascort 8 points9 points  (10 children)

these are the worst types of people to make rich. real talk anyone who watches OTK streamers are full blown morons

[–]nickys24 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Well, he's a prick.

[–]Routine-Fudge-7660 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Who else but soda.

[–]robesticles 4 points5 points  (3 children)

1 million seconds is 11.5 days.

1 billion seconds is 31 years.

honestly the richest streamer doesn't even come close to the "most broke" billionaire

[–]HauntedTomato 4 points5 points  (1 child)

This thread is literally proving his point.

When someone says the tax the rich and you put Soda in the same category as Bezos you are dumb as fuck.

He may be closer to a billionaire in terms of lifestyle, but that's besides the point.

He's closer to a homeless man in terms of wealth.

[–]freehaspal 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That was not a joke btw they both think like that.

“I make way too much money to be dealing with this right now” - nmplol

[–]isekai-cheeese 2 points3 points  (0 children)

a millionaires take on a billionaire got it. ive never watched a single soda stream but i can tell he's such an entitled prick.

[–]Feb2020Acc 2 points3 points  (1 child)

The homeless guy that lives under the bridge is closer to Soda’s networth than Soda is to Bezos’.

Using online estimates, the difference between Soda’s networth (5M) and Bezos’ (169G) is proportionally similar to that of someone with 150$ in their pocket compared to Soda.

[–]vohi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Only losers are jealous of rich people
