Markus Persson Needs To Shut The Fuck Up – The Daily Double Talk
By Tommy McGrew
Look I can’t lie it took me years to finally come to terms with the fact that money indeed can’t buy happiness. Although I believe it can come very damn close. Basically my new theory is it’s no way you can be completely unhappy being filthy rich. That is something I refuse to believe. That’s why when I read Minecraft creator Markus Persson’s “woe is me” Twitter rant I proceeded to flip the fuck out in rage. How dare this motherfucker complain about being sad all the time when he sold Minecraft to Microsoft for $2.5 billion, that’s enough to give you at the very least some kind temporary happiness. Not Persson though, he can’t stress enough how “BORED” and lonely he feels all the time. You still may not get why am so upset so here’s his complete Twitter rant:
“The problem with getting everything is you run out of reasons to keep trying, and human interaction becomes impossible due to imbalance…Hanging out in ibiza with a bunch of friends and partying with famous people, able to do whatever I want, and I’ve never felt more isolated…In Sweden, I will sit around and wait for my friends with jobs and families to have time to do shit, watching my reflection in the monitor…When we sold the company, the biggest effort went into making sure the employees got taken care of, and they all hate me now…I would Musk and try to save the world, but that just exposes me to the same type of assholes that made me sell Minecraft again…People who made sudden success are telling me this is normal and will pass. That’s good to know! I guess I’ll take a shower then!”
Ok, now I’m sure you get, so please allow me to lead the collective FUCK YOU, MARKUS! Ah, that felt good. This guy went in a 30 minute twitter rant looking for sympathy because he’s a billionaire and that is just so, so hard. I have some ideas for you Markus that may help the “problems” you have. First off, if you’re so upset that YOU (the man with the final say) sold your company start a new fucking company. This time make it something challenging like cell phones for squirrels. I guarantee you you’ll loose millions. It would take a lifetime to make that successful but at least it’ll keep you busy and less depressed. Or here’s a helluva idea GIVE YOUR MONEY TO PEOPLE AND CAUSES THAT NEED IT! You can change lives for the better with that kind of money and I don’t care who you are when you’ve affected someone’s life just from something you did, it is very fucking hard not to be happy about that. Unless you’re this fucking guy. If Markus was fishing for sympathy he’s only gonna come up with a boot here. This man gets nothing from me but a big FUCK YOU!
