    Me: everyone! This is not a drill! I repeat! ITS NOT A DRILL *Turns off music and TV* Me: New Episode Of Game Theory!!!! *I SWEAR* This is me literaly everytime I get the notification😂 its actually pretty fun to do. My guess is.......23? 20? Something around there.😒 pretty sure its going to be something with no sense that will blow our minds o.O BTW matpat I really want to know spongebob's age since he goes to work, is in a driving school but he acts like an 8 year old or something 😕

    Well actually He was more mature in seasons 1, 2, and 3 because it was made by the original creators but after that, new ppl came in and kept writing the series. They made Patrick more of a jerk and more stupid. Spongebob more immature and doesn't act the same. So he is really just a completely different character after season three and that is when he starts to act more like a child. I'm not saying he wasn't acting like a child in those seasons, It just wasn't that much. Sorry for the Rant just letting know oh and btw I would also love to know spongebobs age too i cant ever seem to think of a reassonable age

    There is someone who can change your life and his name is Jesus. Now it is more than religion. Jesus is the only one who can give you salvation is Jesus ... Jesus died for your life ... Jesus died for giving you salvation and freeing you from eternal hell. When you have an encounter with the Holy Spirit you will find the true reason of life

    Brush. In one of the first episodes, ash catches a glimpse of the pokèmon Ho-oh, which is said to give eternal happiness to whoever sees it. Staying young forever, winning almost every pokèmon battle you fight, catching most every pokémon you fight, and all the other crazy crap that ash pulls off, seems like eternal happiness to me.

    Game Theory: A channel mostly comprising of a style content that in some cases requires the channels owner (Matthew Patrick) to watch 1020 television episodes and use real world science from a wide variety of sources to determine the age of its protagonist, recording every step for a voice-over. Matpat, do you have any regrets?

    Whats funny is that not only is Ash disregarding pokemon type logic, but everyone in the Pokemon animated series universe. There was even a time last year when I bothered to watch Pokemon and this kid goes up against Ash with a water type. Even Ash is like "lol mate thats a water" and the kid basically just recites Ash's logic by saying "Nah he got this, we train all the time, I know he'll win" and then loses 5 minutes later in battle because Ash used his signature move on a water type Pokemon. It's not that I hate the Pokemon animated series, its that its painful to watch without internally Reeing at how it defies the tactic you learned in the game with just some "Keep using tackle, he'll drop eventually" logic.

    It's pretty surprising nobody noticed that "Ketchum" sounds almost like catch em'. The show also ran for pretty long now, so it is kinda funny nobody noticed it.
