I always enjoyed Nick's Christ-consciousness videos. One thing I never really understood, though, was this: who were all the statheists he kept railing against? I didn't hang out with him on Google or follow all the internet slapfights he was getting into elsewhere on the Youtube community, so there's probably a lot I missed. But I did see a fair amount, and not once do I recall anyone arguing in favor of authoritarian collectivism on his channel or on his fansites. A lot of people accused *Nick* of being a socialist scoundrel, and Tom Davis at least was constantly badgering our hero to "support the troops" (which I guess could be construed as a "statheist" position), but were there really people outright telling Nick that he had no right to self-ownership, or was this simply Nick projecting his own private fears of personal inadequacy out onto his enemies?
Anyway, I don't know if he "lost" the bet, so much as the bet defaulted. I'm guessing this video was recorded in either 2014 or early 2015, but Nick never actually received a million dollars from ANYONE - God, the government, or his own hard work.
I guess you could say that the government gave him "a job", and that this may have been the result of divine punishment meted out on Nick for his extreme hubris (in some of his Gnostic videos, Nick actually claims that he is capable of usurping the Demiurge Itself). However, the prime mover in all of this was still Nick himself: it was Nick's own choices - stealing the house, antagonizing the pedophile, eagerly uploading evidence for the world to see - which led to his arrest, so perhaps Nick did win his bet after all?

Man, I hope prison pressure-cooks him into a real supervillain.
Haha yes! "They want to put him in a sideshow. We should have said yes!"

These videos take on a horrible new dimension with the auto-stabilization effect.

At the 2 minute mark, Corky claims the government stole all his money, and the welfare that he receives is but a small fraction of what the government owes him.
Jesus Christ. I didn't think I would ever find someone upon whom I would wish a stint in the American penal system. And then along came Corky.

The whole cartoon baby voice thing has a hell of a lot more to do with finding pseudo -scientific reasons to criticize men's speech than it does anything else.

everyone, myself included, uses clinical terms for mental illness casually and colloquially
but this video is a good example of the difference between the "narcissist" in your office and a real sufferer of NPD
