For 10,000 subscribers, I’ll be making another play button out of the secret special material shown at the end of the video. If you want to help us get to that next milestone, dropping a like and subscribing is the easiest way to chip in. A big thank you to everyone who has already gotten us this far, and to anyone supporting the channel in the future!

One side note: At 0:48 and 1:55 I meant to write “.003 DOC” not “.0003 DOC”
