    Thats why gpus cost so much, they contain lots and lots of gold and the more expensive they are, they contain more gold

  4. Some Canine on April 25, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    Taiwanese are cool people. I’ve always had positive experiences with them.

    Best video ever

  6. fiv3 on April 25, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    I just realised how slowly Linus used to speak.

  7. BlissBatch on April 25, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    This can’t be profitable without government subsidies, can it? It looks like easy money when you see the $100,000+ gold bar, but when you consider that the average computer has less than $1 worth of gold in it… how much electronics are they processing to get that one gold bar?

  8. Luân Nguyễn on April 25, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    Taiwan Still No1 🙂

  9. Ian Kavaleuski on April 25, 2021 at 11:34 pm

  10. Montana Sands on April 25, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    It’s just like how it made

  11. Binod Sarkar Ram on April 25, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    Linus acknowledged Taiwan is an independent nation… His Chinese masters won’t be happy

  12. Swagger on April 25, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    Linus in the thumbnail looks like tony hawk in a goldmine

  13. fluffysheap on April 25, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    Heh, "King’s water"
    It’s called "Aqua Regia" which, to be fair, is Latin that translates to "King’s water." But nobody says that.

    Looks like translation to and from Chinese caused a little mixup!

  15. Travis Lee on April 25, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    You can literally refine and smelt platinum from car exhaust that gets left in the dirt on the sides of highways.

  16. 9a3eedi on April 25, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    How profitable is this though? Surely there’s a large cost for all those people, chemicals, and electricity and energy. What are the waste products?

  17. Josiah Moore on April 25, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Here in 2021. Weird seeing people without masks on lol.

  25. Mojhune Gabriel Manzanillo on April 25, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    This is sooo Cool!! Other nations catch up. The business model works! You get to make money, while recycling! What an awesome idea!

  26. AceRaven on April 25, 2021 at 11:50 pm

  30. IronBat on April 25, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    Damn that’s more than I thought they would get, good stuff.

  31. Mateo on April 25, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    Meanwhile US is lobbying kenya to relax laws to make them accept toxic shit as waste. Think your tech is green? Think again

  32. Jacob Braunfeld on April 25, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    I love how you referred to Taiwan as a nation! China sucks!

  33. michael vunk on April 25, 2021 at 11:55 pm

  43. محمد هريدي on April 26, 2021 at 12:15 am

    I feel like Taiwan is in a far-away, more advanced planet.

  44. Eren Yıldız on April 26, 2021 at 12:16 am

    I don’t get the order. First, there was a cyanide process to get the gold separated from the rest, and then he just switched to the burning of cloth? And acquired silver there? Then later on the rest is bathed with King’s water solution, and gold/platinum is dissolved, he says the remaining silver is transferred to another facility? Like, what’s going on? What’s the correct order? Why did you jump from a stage to another with leaving gaps in-between?

  45. 1403 gavin on April 26, 2021 at 12:18 am

    0:10 lol they’re wearing masks 2 years before covid.
