Ask @PurpleMentat:

Have you played a lot of vanilla minecraft? What was / were (is/are) the greatest thing(s) you have build in vanilla?

I played vanilla for a few months. My best builds were technical. A double skeleton spawner water ladder farm, which collected into a crusher that left them at half health, so a splash potion of healing could generate lots of easy experience. A redstone driven automagic wheat farm where you just had to hold right-click to generate ten wheat a second. I tried to build a long rail-road, and ran into chunk loading issues.

Do you have any advice for people that overthink? Should they see a professional to talk to?

This advice applies to everyone. Are your thoughts and feelings stopping you from being happy or accomplishing your goals? Then talk to a therapist. Are they just worrying you but not stopping you? Talk to a therapist.
It might be long term therapy, or it might be just a few sessions. Either way, it won't do you any harm.

How much time you do youtube?

I've been on YouTube for nearly a year. I spend between sixty and eighty hours a week at it, between recording, editing, comments, promotion, researching, trying new things to improve, admin, and monetizing.
I am really looking forward to the day I feel my skills are acceptably above average. That will free up a lot of "learn and improve" time to make more content. The number one skill I'm working on right now is improving my time management and work flow.

What is your opinion of otherkin, and more specifically, toastkin?

People who truly believe themselves to be nonhuman AND (super important and) act out behaviours based on these beliefs that harm their happiness, their bodies, or their abilities to care for themselves in our society strike me as unwell and in need of help. Calling yourself a dragon only becomes a problem if you hurt yourself trying to breathe fire or swallow your family's diamonds. There's nothing wrong with being a cat, until you go peeing on every tree and telephone pole in your neighborhood to mark your territory.
The whole toastkin thing is a REALLY lame troll. It's an attempt at comedy at the expense of an already disadvantaged and marginalized group. You don't help people by mocking them and making them "other"

I know you're partially colour-blind. That's why I would like to ask you, what colours did "The Dress" have for you?

The whole thing was a trick of perception brought on by a poorly taken low saturation photo displayed on countless differently-configured screens. It could show either way for anyone depending on monitor settings.
None of the colours involved are effected by my particular type of colour blindness.

Do you have any advice for someone that wants to start making YouTube videos?

Just start doing it. Use whatever computer you have, your headset and the free software out there and do it.
Once you've started, worry about improving. Get better gear. Learn new skills. Visit subreddits and websites dedicated to YouTube. Study software tutorials. If you want to get good at it, you'll need to put in a lot of time. This isn't a job you can start part time until you find success. Forty hours a week is part time. If you love it, dive in and just do it.
