    Me: everyone! This is not a drill! I repeat! ITS NOT A DRILL
    *Turns off music and TV*
    Me: New Episode Of Game Theory!!!!
    *I SWEAR* This is me literaly everytime I get the notification😂 its actually pretty fun to do.
    My guess is.......23? 20? Something around there.😒 pretty sure its going to be something with no sense that will blow our minds o.O
    BTW matpat I really want to know spongebob's age since he goes to work, is in a driving school but he acts like an 8 year old or something 😕

      Well actually He was more mature in seasons 1, 2, and 3 because it was made by the original creators but after that, new ppl came in and kept writing the series. They made Patrick more of a jerk and more stupid. Spongebob more immature and doesn't act the same. So he is really just a completely different character after season three and that is when he starts to act more like a child. I'm not saying he wasn't acting like a child in those seasons, It just wasn't that much. Sorry for the Rant just letting know oh and btw I would also love to know spongebobs age too i cant ever seem to think of a reassonable age

    I’m a teacher in Japan and have had students of all ages so... the typical summer vacation in Japan starts in the late part of July and ends on August 31st (not unless it falls on a Friday. Then, schools starts up again on the following Monday). Universities, on the other hand, start summer vacation at a different time (August to September).

    I was kinda triggered when you said 10 years and 364 days. Matpat, it should be a leap year. And you call yourself a nerd.

    Soooo if the shows say that Ash is 10 years old and when pokemon xyz came he's still 10 does that mean he did all of that in one year?
    and I do not ship Misty and Ash...I ship SERENA and ash

    "We'll focus exclusively on the anime" - focuses on the novelisation instead, LOL
    Let me correct you by the way: The Indigo Journey takes 1 year, and from that to the League takes TWO months, not 3.
    You also added the 10th birthday celebration to aging FROM 10, which is a hugh mistake on your part. Ash is 11 when enters the Kanto Regional League.
    You also missed Pikachu&Pichu.
    Also missed at least the first x-mass-destruction is precisly marked in the main series.
    You are lucky though, as it is unclear how much time passed at the end of Johto, so there Ash is either 13 OR 14.

    Ash is stuck at 10 years, 11 months and 29 days old. He shall outlive time itself, and still not be 11 or a Pokémon master!

    what if the reason why he still acts and looks like a child is because when he wished he would stay young forever, the legendary pokemon he wished on granted his wish?
