Rare Earth : Thanks to everyone who asked about our Patreon. I'll put out a full video when I get the time, but for those who want to jump the gun and get on board from the start, here's the link: It means a huge deal that so many have asked us to start an account. I never thought anyone would watch these videos, let alone support them.

Danku Franku : Damn now I feel bad for a rock

Elijah Buscho : *but what does it sound like*

IARRCSim : That rock had such a stellar status in the Easter Island community that it was the world's first rock star.

Lester Suggs : One of the most interesting quotes I've heard is "Diamonds are worthless. Try selling one yourself." - THIS is true. Go onto eBay or Craigslist and search for 'engagement rings' - there are tens of thousands, and there always will be. I purchased a 1.2 ct flawless princess cut diamond from a desperate single mother for 1/5 its appraised value. Now, I can't get 1/3 of what I paid. It is just a stupid rock, and we're all fools.

ROGER2095 : I've heard it said that children know the value of everything and the price of nothing. Put a cupcake and a doorknob-sized diamond in front of a 1 year old, and she'll grab the cupcake and squeal with delight. To her, the diamond is worthless.

Ratigan2 : "When blown the right way it created an inimitable sound" ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Aldin Lewis : Ya know with modern technology you could probably get a 3D scan of the rock and recreate it. That way you could blow into it without messing with a historical artifact. (Given all the interest from people wanting to hear what it sounds like)

Joe Duke : I know of a far more valuable rock. The Black Stone at the Grand Mosque in Mecca, is a useless rock that 1.3 billion people are willing to kill everyone else on Earth for.

sleuth 2077 : When I'm blown the right way, i curl my toes.......does that mean I'm valuable?

Plunder Bunny : I really love the unique angle you choose to tell stories from. It makes these videos incredibly valuable.

Nathan Baker : Beebo Russell liked this video.

EpicTacoWizard : The sea-tac hijacker watched this. Fly high.

MF99K : i wanna know what the rock sounds like

TomDeath95 : Sky King brought me here. RIP

RaptrZ_ : RIP Rich, an amazing self taught pilot. This was his last liked video before everything. May he rest easy.

Eric Rusch Sr : Your style of story telling makes your channel worth subscribing to. I've just subscribed. Thank you Eric

GordieGii : I want to hear the inimitable sound.

Doggo And Doggo Accessories : This is hauntingly good content. Absolutely well done; I was intrigued throughout the entire video.

Justin O'Brien : The concept of value reminds me of the Coke bottle in "The Gods Must be Crazy".

ReviewThugUSA : Like if Rich "Barrel roll" got you here.

Shawn Elliott : 2:08 - What a coincidence! I also make an inimitable sound when blown the right way.

Sketchy Koolaide : Someone needs to weed eat around that rock. R.i.p. Rich russel

Manuel Pilarczyk : The rock still has worth, not monetary, but philosophical and historical worth, because it had wars fought over it and changed the culture and history of the island, because the stronger groups killed the weaker ones. If the wars that were fought over this rock would have turned out differently or the rock maybe, you know... does have powers, then heck, the statues might would have never been a thing and this island would have been just any other island. There is a reason for the fence around it, because it is an artifact, a piece of history.

than217 : "When blown the right way it created an inimitable sound." *DOESN'T DEMONSTRATE THE SOUND* ....

Vern Etzel : dude is obsessed with power, as if that's important to anyone but those who have it. oh well, I get his point.

IssaColdWorld v12 : R.I.P Skyking

The Great and Lovable Peridot : The pioneers used to ride those babies for miles...

jrelated1 : #skyking brought me here

Daehawk : I waited the entire video to hear it and nada.

Beard of Bees Pool : The Rock says.. Know your damn role.

B. R. : Ok, we ABSOLUTELY MUST start reenacting the rain summoning ritual with actually blowing the rock fiddle! We MUST HEAR that sound! There's no other rock like this, so it must be something amazing to hear, people died to hear it being brought to life on behalf of their kin. Also, we should get reenacted wars for the rock and then a ceremony of moving it to the other known sites it was stationed at. Imagine the tourist influx, imagine being allowed to help tow the rock for a "symbolic" fee that would go towards studying the rock and creating a perfect replica of it to preserve this marvel of a sound and the instrument for the future generations! Centuries, even millenia later, when our progeny walks among the stars, they will still have that sound that resonated through the hearts of their long-deceased forefathers, the sound that will echo through times and connect the generations of the past with the generations to come!

The clown fish : It would be more attractive if it's in some kind of garden with flowers, other plants, stone pathways and the stone being in the center


Rocket Man : RIP SkyKing

Jonny FX : Now I want to go there just to see this rock.

The Imaginary Axis : The pioneers used to ride these babies for miles!

pr0xZen : On account of the 2 month salary diamond engagement rings and such - IMO this is basically the modern take on dower. In a modern society, where (most often) both parties work, out of wish more than need, regardless of gender, and are fully capable of supporting themselves (probably even the whole family on slightly more slender terms) - the concept of dowry is absurd. But dower is nigh on socially mandatory? Why? Its not even for financial security, nor do we any longer "need" marriages to forge business and financial bonds. So love as a whole is grown as an industry, but between those two people, its still love. And commitment. If men "really need" to put down 2 months wages to prove their commitment to the relationship, wouldn't that be better demonstrated through 2 months wages worth of savings/"emergency fund"? So that in case of rainy days, struggling to make ends meet does not take an unnecessary tool/strain on the relationship?

Justin Maxwell : After watching this video, that rock just earned more respect and value from me than any diamond out there.

Slarti Bartfast : I would never buy a diamond from you because I think that it is worthless crap. but I will most certainly sell you one for lots of money because you might think it's precious. value, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. (get it out with Optrex, the perfect solution for eye pollution.)

SHBoi : 2:05 The rock be like: Oh my gersh I'm on camera

Rachel's Done : "I have fabulous hair. I should model" 👏

Nj Rocks : Is this where they got the inspiration for that Spongebob episode?


scot woodz : I don’t get it why don’t we hear the sound? Do you blow through it with your lips on it? Do you use an air compressor to blow through? Does it perhaps make sound when the wind is blowing.................? Does it sound cool or creepy? Is it a sound that only a dog can hear? Please do a test and get back to us thank you :-)

john doe : Seems like that rock should be in a museum..

893zero : The industry can't believe millennials arn't buying diamonds, the reason seems fairly obvious.

Maxime K-G : Haha, because of your video, it's rated 5,0 stars 😂😂

Join The Technicians : What a rare and refreshing perspective. And highly accurate at that. Top notch episode dudes!

David Parry : Diamonds can be manufactured with ease. Black ones are made every day for industrial purposes. Coloured ones for jewelry can be manufactured. Sapphires are MORE valuable... for their industrial uses. Diamonds make good grindstones.... is all.
