YouTubers work harder than anyone out there?

Respectfully, no, sir. Disrespectful? Yes, sir. Your "problems" sound very first-world. Had to go to McDonalds to charge my cam? Had to sleep in a truck?

Try these:
870 million people in the world do not have enough to eat.

Undernutrition contributes to 2.6 million deaths of children under five each year - one third of the global total.

66 million primary school-age children attend classes hungry across the developing world, with 23 million in Africa alone.

You want to know who works harder than you? Those children and people who fight hunger, be it their own or another's. That is work that ends in success or death, and is unending until that moment.

Really???

I think you missed the point of Devin's comments, Silly Rabbit. Too many people think that planning, filming, editing, and posting a video each week easy work. A lot of people who get into making Youtube videos don't put in the time and don't focus on the details that he does, and you can see the difference in quality and the number of viewers each get.

Not once has Mr. Graham complained about what he is doing; in fact, he mentions how much he enjoys his work. I think you should take a look at some of the videos he made while in Africa. You will come to understand that he knows firsthand what you were talking about.

Why are we too quick to criticize people for talking about the sacrifices of their chosen careers. Each career has different responsibilities and sacrifices, and it's good to let people know what they are before they make those important career choices.
