Right, and much of the younger generation is shut out of decent property 
ownership thanks to the asset bubble (which includes retrocomputers.) So 
this will curtail a lot of them from trying to aquire huge loads of old 
computers since they're presented with overpriced housing near the job 
centers. The half of the population profits from this thinks it's good 
for some reason. That's why a lot of people will watch it on youtube
