    Hey Austin!
    Referring to the chart at 16:35, you are actually listing the items' prices, not the number of days of labor to make/obtain them.
    The "d" is referring to the pence in the old system of pounds, shillings and pence. It's from the Latin _denarius_ ; of the money used during the Roman Empire.
    If you were to say that the laborer makes a pence a day, then that's fine, but I feel that I must bring this up as it might cause confusion. You were probably tired at that point, so it's okay. Thanks!

    I have made a amazing undertale /deltarune discovery at the reboot after genocide route, a mysterious person says to reboot give me your soul, this could be similar to when in deltarune a mysterious person says are we connected? And a soul appeared almost as if to bring back undertale you had to give your soul to gaster or the creator and they brought your soul to deltarune as the conscience

    Austin's comments on corn and grains being used as currency or for measuring worth reminded me of something GaijinGoombah was talking about in one of his videos. Apparently feudal Japan used rice yields to determine value.

    Did You Know that Mega Mewtwo X’s Top Speed is 111.84 Miles Per Hour! Yes, You Heard it Right! Mega Mewtwo X can go as Fast as a Sports car! According to Its Pokedex Entry From lets Go Pikachu and Eevee, It States "It has a grip strength of one ton and can sprint a hundred meters in two-seconds flat!”. Using what I know from its Pokedex entry, I Took My Calculator and I Know it Reaches that Distance of 100 Meters in 2 Second so I Divided it by 2 and Got the Speed of 50 Meters per second. I Then Knew That in Order to Calculate Mega Mewtwo X’s Speed I Must Represent it in Miles Per Hour, so I Multiplied 50 m/s by 3600 and Got 180,000 Meters Per Hour and Dividing it by 1000, Making us Closer to this Mega Pokemon’s Top Speed, So I Currently have 180 Kilometers Per Hour and then converted it to Miles Per Hour. This Gave Me a Quick Estimate of 111.84 Miles Per Hour, and This is My Final Answer on Mega Mewtwo X’s Top Speed.
    P.S I’m Sending it to Matpat

    Hey Austin great video as always but I think with the medieval prices the d symbol means penny not day with the average labourer making 2 pence per day.

    The labour theory of value is inherently flawed because not all labour is valued equally.
    Also the quality of labour can fluctuate.
    In my engineering class we were taught this.
    "The act of turning a screw is worth little , the act of knowing which screw to turn that will get the machine up and running again is worth hundreds depending on the machine.
    That is what value truly is.
    You can put all your labour, spend hours agonizing over tilling crappy dirt.
    But the value is going to be the same if you still cannot grow anything useful from it.
    Value is decided based on what someone is willing to pay for.
