      Mr. Sorola, what changes and/or expansions can we expect from Rooster Teeth in the near future? What role do you intend to play in terms of developing new content and projects from here on out?

      Answered: Nov 7, 2016

      Can't really answer what we're doing in the future.  These days I'm researching VR/AR/360 video and trying to find ways RT can incorporate them and what best practices are.

    • Rich4u1 asked gus a question

      Hey Gus, have you put out any reviews for any of the VR headsets? I'd really like to read them if you have. I'm investing in VR and the Vive seems to be the best.

      Answered: Nov 7, 2016

      I think the Vive is the best one overall so far, but I have not tried the Oculus Touch controllers yet.

      Hi Gus, Hope your having a good day, after watching the podcast for so long and just getting a MacBook, Where did you get your classic apple decal for the logo? (Multi-colour). Thanks!

      Answered: Oct 24, 2016

      Esther ordered it for me somewhere online.  Sorry, no idea where.

    • WilliamJohnO asked gus a question

      Gus, when you founded Rooster Teeth, what was the moment that made you decide to go all in?

      Answered: Oct 24, 2016

      It was pretty early on.  I was the first person to "work" at RT full time so I definitely believed.  I don't think there was one moment, it was definitely many things happening at once.

      Hi Gus! I was wondering if you had any suggestions for me becoming an Enforcer for PAX. If I am accepted to enforce, I will be 18 & the youngest eligible age to do so. Any advise will be fantastic!

      Answered: Oct 24, 2016

      I've never been an enforcer at PAX so I have no idea.

    • DontQuestionMyMotives asked gus a question

      Are there any future plans for RT to visit Indianapolis in the future?

      Answered: Sep 27, 2016

      Currently no announced plans.  Jordan is a Colts fan, maybe he'll end up there to watch a game at some point.

    • Marcusindeskys asked gus a question

      Hi Gus, you were talking about how you trained to turn your mind off and fall asleep instantly. Is there some kind of course or book about this? I really want to learn it too, sounds awesome!

      Answered: Sep 27, 2016

      I don't know if there is a book, I just practiced to learn how to do it.  Took maybe a year or so before I got really good at it.  The first and easiest steps are to create a routine.  Don't read in bed, don't watch tv in bed, don't use your phone in bed.  Train your brain that when you lay down in bed it is time to shut off.  After that it is a matter of just calming yourself and clearing your mind.

    • savty123 asked gus a question

      I just wanted to know if you remember the first domain name you ever registered?

      Answered: Sep 27, 2016

      Yes.  I no longer own it and it is a parked domain so I won't write it down here.

      Hello there. I am a big fan of Rooster Teeth and I have been so extremely excited to go to RTX for a long while now. I had to work hard all year to get to RTX, get straight A's in my classes and to get a job to pay for the hotel. Everything was looking positive, until I had found out that my dad had never even bought my ticket when he said that he did. Now I can't get into RTX, all tickets are sold and RTX is days away. My dreams were crushed, I was so ecstatic at the thought of actually seeing the creators of the best source of entertainment that I have found. I will still be going to Austin, since the plane ticket has been bought and the hotel (which is literally right next to the convention center). At least I'll be able to view the livestreams from across the street.

      Not sure where to leave feedback, I noticed something after the site update that's a bit off. So far I've only watched RT Podcasts, but the way they are set up now, it's hard to get the description and who's in it before choosing an episode. Pretty minor. Just wasn't sure if anyone felt the same way.

If you, or whoever you might ask to do this for you(Barbara), wouldn't mind messaging me with some details about the job and what it entails I would really appreciate it.

      Supreme Court Opinion Makes Prosecution of Internet Trolls More Difficult

      *Disclaimer – I am not licensed to practice law. The following is a reflection of my reading of a Supreme Court opinion, and should not be relied on by anyone. I am not advertising my services, seeking compensation, or looking for notoriety: I am offering an explanation of the significant legal principles as I seem them for informative purposes.*

      Today the Supreme Court ruled in Elonis v. United States that a law often used to prosecute internet users who make threatening comments over the Internet could not be used unless the perpetrator knew the language to be threatening. Prior to this ruling, most courts held that an internet threat is illegal if a reasonable person (e.g. the person being threatened, other site-users) would feel threatened. The court today, however, found this rule was not an accurate interpretation of the statute, and required that any person convicted of making internet threats must be “blameworthy in mind before he can be found guilty.†While this ruling is a win for internet users who say the threats they make over the internet are intended for therapeutic or cathartic reasons, I am concerned that Internet threats are often made in passing while read quite seriously, making prosecution difficult under any other interpretation. This ruling requires authorities to demonstrate that a threat was made to be taken seriously, or at least made with the awareness that it might be taken seriously—a more difficult standard to prove unless the defendant admits what he or she was thinking when the threat was made.

      The facts of the case are that Anthony Elonis was arrested for 5 counts of violating 18 USC §875(c) which makes it a crime to transmit “any communication containing any threat to injure the person of another.†The statute was enacted in 1939 to apply to telecommunications that existed at the time, but is still used for federal prosecutions regarding threats made over the internet. Elonis made threats towards his coworkers, resulting in his termination from the amusement park where he worked. He also made threats against his wife, saying “Fold up your [Restraining Order] and put it in your pocket/ Is it thick enough to stop a bullet?†and providing details to the public on his Facebook page detailing what he believed to be the most effective way to fire mortar rounds at his wife’s home and not get caught. He made threats against Police; as well as an FBI agent that visited his house about the threats, posting to his Facebook after the incident “So the next time you knock, you best be serving a warrant/ And bring yo’ SWAT and an explosives expert while you’re at it/ Cause little did y’all know, I was strapped wit’ a bomb/Why do you think it took me so long to get dressed with no shoes on?/ I was jus’ waitin’ for y’all to handcuff me and pat me down/ Touch the detonator in my pocket and we’re all goin’.…†Finally, Elonis commented on another Facebook user’s post, “That’s it, I’ve had about enough/ I’m checking out and making a name for myself/ Enough elementary schools in a ten mile radius to initiate the most heinous school shooting ever imagined/ And hell hath no fury like a crazy man in a Kindergarten class/ The only question is… which one?â€

      At trial, the jury was instructed that Elonis was guilty of breaking the law if a reasonable person would have understood that the posts he was making were real threats, which are not protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution. Elonis argued that the word “threat†indicates that he must purposefully or knowingly make the threat to cause someone to feel threatened; a fact which was not determined at trial and which Elonis argues he did not intend. The government argued that Elonis’s purpose in making the argument did not matter because the statute does not require “an intent to threaten†only that the communication includes a threat. The trial judge agreed with the government’s argument, thus instructing the jury that Elonis was guilty if a reasonable person would have understood his words as threats. The Supreme Court overruled this jury instruction, sending the case back to a lower court to determine if Elonis was guilty based on some other interpretation of the statute.

      The lower court now must consider whether to adopt Elonis’s interpretation of the statute and require that internet threats be made with the purpose or knowledge of being threats in order to be illegal. If this interpretation is adopted, Elonis is less likely to be convicted because the jury is more likely to take him at his word that he did not intend—and did not know—that anyone would take his posts seriously. The Court could also choose a middle ground between Elonis’s and the Government’s argument by applying the standard of recklessness. Elonis recklessly threatened his victims if: 1) He had a substantial awareness that his words might be taken as threats; and, 2) A reasonable person would have understood that Elonis’s words were threats. This interpretation would likely result in a conviction because the jury would be allowed to infer that while it may not have been Elonis’s purpose to threaten, and while he may not have been certain that his words would be taken as threats, he must have at least been aware that his victims might interpret his words as threats. While the recklessness standard is likely to result in a conviction, the recklessness standard is more likely than the purposeful or knowing standard to be found a misinterpretation of the statute (again) or an unconstitutional burden on Elonis’s right to free speech. The Supreme Court has not offered a definitive ruling, only saying that the method used in this case of interpreting a threat through the eyes of the threatened (the same way most lower courts had interpreted the law) is incorrect and must be retried.

      Obviously, the legality of Internet threats is an important issue to anyone interested in safe, well-meaning, and healthy Internet ecosystems. This case highlights the difficulties in prosecu

      Hello Gus, I have something to ask of you and other Rooster Teeth members. I'm planning on making a RPG tribute game of influential internet stars, such as the members of Rooster Teeth. So I was wondering would you guys mind if I put one of you, or one of the characters created by you guys, into the game? I can understand if RT asks me not to do it, hence why I wanted to run this by you guys first.

      Hey Gus ! (Not sure if you read these)

      I remembered you talked about EVE Online a few times on the patch and was curious if you've ever tried it. If you haven't gotten to it yet I'd be willing to teach you the game , mainly because EVE is complicated plus most good YouTube tutorials take 12 hours to cover the basics. So I'm offering to give you a somewhat personal tutorial to make things easier for you ( Not bank rolling you through the game to be nice , being poor/struggling is the fun in Eve).

      But before you consider my offer , look at this i.imgur.com/h6dBiNr.jpg (a bit outdated) , it roughly covers everything in the game so if you want to go into PvP or PvE I'm your guy , but if its Industry/Market you are going into I'll do my best to find someone to teach you.


      Also if you actually decide to let me teach you the game we'll use the game's voice chat (Cause I'm 99% sure you don't want a fan having your Skype or some shit. )

      Have two people get covered in mud, have one person take a bath for 10 minutes and have another take a shower for 10 minutes. See who is dirtier at the end. #TeamShower.

      Was interesting running into you on Saturday at the Cherry Blossom Festival in San Francisco this past weekend. Although I awkwardly extended my hand out for a hand shake and you still shook it with a hint of a "do I hafta" expression; hands down your mother wins that awkward situation because she just randomly starts petting my dog. To which I said afterwards uhhh go ahead...for some reason I didn't see you as being Asian...nor did I think that you'd have such an awkward walk as you walked away. My girlfriend said to me afterwards "why didn't you take a picture with him" which in my head I was thinking no..."let that majestic animal free to do as he pleases."

      Any who, thanks for shaking my hand and being a sport about it. It's always nice to see someone doing big things acknowledging the little people who have yet to figure out what's going on in their lives.

      - Hoping you read this and get a kick out of this,
      Chris

      P.S. For some reason when you walked away, you reminded me of a titan in shingeki no kyujin...one with long lanky arms dangling to the sides as you went away.

      I wasn't going to mention this b/c why would you care but after the podcast this week I thought it was appropriate. I had a dream last week that was so weird that I had to wake up and type it out in a google doc before I fell back asleep. You were in the dream, and you were riding around my neighborhood on a white and red moped and on one side of the moped was a sidecar for Ester, and attached to her sidecar was a smaller sidecar for your dog. I don't know why.
