Anonymous asked: Oh, I thought it was obvious my "Microsoft will ruin Minecraft" question was a joke… But I do get your point!

Apologes, with so many people shitting all over it sometimes it’s hard to tell:)

Anonymous asked: Do you think anyone can become a decent programmer? What is a trait or talent that you would consider vital to be a really good programmer?

No, I don’t think anyone can become a decent programmer. You need a logical mind and good work ethic to become a decent programmer.

trampzy asked: How good are your parents at SMB? And if your parents were to challenge each other for the best time on each map who would win?

I’m not sure who would win. They are both not great at the game.

Why do people constantly think that a company is going to throw down billions of dollars just to ruin something. There are people smarter than you working on these deals that see them and the potential behind them and make decisions to execute them. None of this is done on a whim.

Nope, I think I’m conditioned for it.

weareforeverdust asked: How long were you at college before you dropped out? Was there any particular "breaking point" that made you say "Screw this"? A pointless assignment? Or maybe financial issues? It's interesting how many creative successful people dropped out of college.

I ran into walls the second I got there. The first wall was they wanted to put me in a remedial math class. Back then, I was a pretty nervous person and when it came to super important tests I would do terribly most of the time (the best SAT I took was when I didn’t think I was going to go and pretty much woke up, ran to the test got there right before it started and started without any hesitation). When the AP calculus test came up I bombed it, but I knew my stuff. I argued with the admins at NCState for about a month saying “Just put me in this class, I’m paying for the education, put me in the calculus class I’m supposed to be in” and they finally did. I didn’t go to any class and aced it…did the same thing with Calculus 2. After that it was physics, I signed up for this physics class one day BEFORE the deadline. I go into the class the day after I registered on which turned out to be everyone elses 2nd day of class (deadline was after the first classes were held) and the professor kicked me out. He said I was too far behind…he embarrassed me in front of the entire class for doing nothing but following the rules. I actually ended up getting an apology from the physics department and the teacher…but it was so far into the semester that nothing could be done. It was a good month or two of back and forth. The final straw though was programming classes. I would do the assignments and turn them in and get half credit because my code was more efficient than the TA’s template. Basically their code was 2 pages, mine was 1, I would get 50% credit even though I did the assignment and it worked. The end result did or exceeded what the assignment asked. It was after that that I said “fuck it” and quit. I’ve never regretted it.
