Notch is bitching on twitter about how all the money didn't bring him happiness and everything is shallow and lacks meaning and woe is him.

**** that guy. Billion dollars and you're bored?! **** him and his visionless mother****ing face.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Aw, I just checked it out and it's pretty sad.

I don't know what the guy expected though. He went through a divorce and his response was to move from Sweden to friggin' Los Angeles and buy a huge mansion to live in alone.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

Yeah, given enough money to actually change the world or at least make a strong impact, and he'd rather contemplate the shallowness of humanity at its biggest party ground. Dude was probably coming down off some Molly, couldn't get any weed, and someone forgot to take his phone from him.

I don't think money makes someone immune from depression, though.

Money can make you not miserable, but it cannot guarantee happiness.

****s like him must assume that $$$ = joy if he's bitching about it on the internet.

You do have to wonder why he doesn't set up a charitable foundation or something.

I do feel sort of bad for him (not his situation, his feelings). But why not splash some of that cash around. Best case scenario he finds a cause he can get fired up about and devote his energy to, worst case he blows all his money and can go back to being just a fat Swedish guy that makes simple games and takes long vacations.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Helping other people actually directly improves mood in (non-psychopathic) people because of inherent human empathy.

If he gave a bunch of his money to charitable causes, he'd probably actually be much happier.

I hear owning a fleet of yachts and enough blow for all your stripper friends can also lead to happiness. But charity's cool too.

So I had to eat the last portion from the cereal box today and the dust content is off the charts. The milk at the end is just a gross slurry of cheerio particles, I'm not even sure I can finish it.

Weep for me.

I usually stick my hand in the bag and sift out the larger chunks of cereal. The dust sucks. Unless it is dehydrated marshmallow dust. Reform that into new shapes.

That would require getting up a few minutes earlier.  Not worth it during the week.
Probably not a Goat, either.

Agree with Ink. Weekends and days when I have late lectures or go into work late I generally make myself eggs.

Usually scrambled on toast but sometimes fried on crumpets.


God Mode: Duck eggs on crumpets.
