I know ragging on ol' Cwcker for being bad with money is old hat by now, but this year has had a really galling "Begging:Look at my toys" ratio.
"I'm Done Adulting", says the most aptly-worn shirt in Christory.
I know it's common wisdom to think that the end is coming soon and when Barb dies, it'll all be over. But honestly, given Barb's condition and her inability to provide financial support, Chris is pretty much living on his own already, and he's surviving pretty well! Sure, the house will be taken and Chris will assume Barb's crippling hoard-debt on top of his own, but the GodBear still has plans for him yet.

I don't know all the intricacies of Chris' finances, but I'm pretty sure Barb's social security constitutes a critical leg of the tripod of his income. I doubt it's much, but he's been skating on razor-thin ice for the past year or two, and that's with trolls tossing him pity bux. Take away that, Barb's SS, and what little restraint he had in spending, and yes, it can get worse. Much worse. Infected taint worse.
She's in a lot of debt. For example, amongst other creditors, Barb owes Capital One $ 15,906.99 - which isn't surprising given that, aside from the stuff in Chris' room, the entire hoard is hers.
Her SS is important, but she's a net drain on the Chandler family household, and if Chris was alone in a state-subsidized, single bedroom studio apartment somewhere, he'd be financially better off than he is now.

oh also that tag should read TRANSformers because I am clever w/ language.

The only Transformer I know is Starscream. I remember him because his name is stupid. Stars don't have mouths!
Soundwave the tape play robot and the semitruck hero protagonist.
Oh wait, I remember the cassette tape one! He was cool because he actually talked like a robot. All the other robots sounded like dudes who failed the He-Man audition, but Tape Deck was all "YES, DECEPTIONS, I HEAR AND OBEY." He was great. And then he turned into a boom box. I bet he could have killed all the semitrucks if they'd let him.
Soundwave was also the best toy. I mean, a tape deck is a pretty boring thing to transform into, but he had all these little tapes that went in his chest that transformed into all his little buddies like the birdy thing and a little tiger thing. There were more you could get, those are the only two I can remember.

I shouldn't hate a person that's so obviously handicapped/limited. A reasonable argument could be made that Chris doesn't have the capability to be a better person. And yet... fuck her. What a fucking waste of space. No introspection, awareness, perspective, or higher thought ever enters her empty little head.
There. Now that I've gotten that off my chest, I can go back to her ignoring her & her videos.

To truly treat someone else like a human being means, by definition, not treating them like a fucking pussy and holding them to the basic standards you would hold others to without lies or condescension.
Look, nobody on earth besides me and EvilHomer humanize Chris Chan more. I'm pretty sure at this point even his own mother just looks at him as that weird quasi-tranny lunatic that lives in her house and masturbates to echidnas. But as one of the few remaining people on earth who see him as a tragic, Dickensian figure and not just walking proof that God is an alcoholic, I can say with total clarity and confidence: Fuck Chris.
Yes, he doesn't know what he's doing, OH GOD WON'T SOMEONE SWOOP IN AND RESCUE HIM, etc. etc. Been there done that. It's bullshit. He is definitely aware of what is happening and is capable of changing whenever it personally suits him. He's not a semi-catatonic vegetable. He's a grown man capable of setting up a Patreon account and engaging in long, detailed, complex conversations about why he shouldn't be buying fucking toys when he can't make rent.
I love Chris to death. But fuck him. Seriously.
Pretty much this.
He has been given more opportunities than a lot of people (and certainly way more state money than people I've personally known who legitimately needed it) and he has shit them all down the toilet. His (or her) mental issues clearly are *part* of the problem, but not the entire problem. I will concede that his parents probably contributed by never holding him to higher standards, but Chandler is almost like a Nick Bravo type situation where you might, just being a rational human, feel sorry for their situation, but when you really examine it, they had distinct exit points they could have taken to improve things and become better people and they just disregarded it.
It should be also be pointed out that on the few occasions people have tried to reach out to him in a honest manner, he has immediately just tried to victimize them (beg for more money, attention, etc.) and then attempted to get back at them in some manner when they refused. (most famously, the girl who legitimately tried to befriend him, refused sexual advances, and then he made comics depicting her being raped).
My wife works in the mental health field, and the stories she tells me are mind blowing. Based on her stories and my own experience with someone who has a severe personality disorder, I've come to the conclusion that some people are broken beyond repair. No amount of therapy or drugs can help them, and any goodwill that is directed their way only feeds their pathological narcissism. Chris has proven himself to be such a person.
Well, sure. There's plenty of people (and creatures in general) that simply can't be helped. No amount of goodwill will do any good when dealing with a rabid dog; you simply have to put it down. It's the only thing that can be done.
But you don't hate the rabid dog. You don't think it has failed in some way. It's just sick; sick in a way you can't do anything to help it.
But when it comes to Chris, I do hate him. (Perhaps "despise" is a better word.) I think he *has* morally failed. I think he could be much better, despite his limitations. But he chooses not to make those changes.
As I initially said, I'm not sure if that's fair. It's possible Chris really is so mentally ill that he could never be a better person. And yet, here I am, despising that asshole.

So, does she still have an abscess on her perineum or has that been fixed?
Honestly, Chris-Chan dying on December 31, 2016 would, in some perverse way, redeem this year for me. I realize how horrible a thing this is to say about another human being. At the same time, a fundamentally broken person engaging in a massive folie ├á deux with the great hydra of the internet seems to be an apt enough synecdoche for this most foul year of our lord, that I think it would give me a glimmer of hope.
Even if he does kick it, there are plently of other autistic manchildren to entertain us:
Matthew Davis The Movie Lover
Austin Alexander POE/LogoBoy95
That girl who draws Rick and Morty/Venture Brothers/Duckman mpreg art

I'm going through a sort of midlife crisis right now. Standard gets for men doing that in the past are a sports car, train set or mistress - I'm becoming Chris-Chan and am buying all kinds of nerd shit to fill the hole. I can relate.
I fully intend to buy a transformer that turns into a peguin.
I'm pretty sure my own midlife crisis is going be indistinguishable from my ongoing Being-Alive-At-All-Crisis.

A friend of mine tells me that he frequently live-streams using his Playstation under his "Sonichu" moniker.
