he's milking the pewds retirement clicks train, and yep. I only recently started watching some of his stuff due to the obscene uptick in project cost & obscurity. Doing near fark you money tier stuff. He claims he's not on the stock market, but I find that obscenely hard to believe.

really though, dude probably should take a 6 month to 6 year vacation. They're good for the soul if you can afford the, and he most definitely can. He built a family, so he should probably go work on it while his daughter is young, before she starts to resent him for always being busy.

aside from that, throwing around words like "retire" when you're barely 30 years old is silly unless you're a billionaire in an industry you don't love. Its like Eminem retiring every 5 years, then dropping a surprise album, each one successively crappier and crappier unfortunately.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

most definitely. He's built a beautiful mint up there in Canada.

he's too young to genuinely "retire" though. I guess that's the part that annoys me. It seems like PR posturing for the eventual comeback (like rappers do) . He's been debating taking a loooooooong vacation so he can participate more in the whole family thing he created.

my original words were pre-coffee, too harsh.

I think you might be addicted to caffeine.

You have no idea the clarity of mind you're missing if you drink it on a regular basis. I started sleeping better and waking up much more clearheaded once I hit a few weeks without coffee.

clarity has yet to return since that dude broke my face in 4 places in July. Some espresso with my morning volcano is the lesser of many evils i've already overcome.

but yep, definitely. I wake up with a minor tingle headache, that clears within 5 minutes of consuming caffeine = sign of physical dependence... or brain damage, who knows! i just run down to the gym @ work when i start to crash, and all is right again.

I thought the espresso was Europe's fruity take on coffee. What happened to the old cuppa joe?
