Gone are the times when our parents say there is no future in gaming. Those sleepless nights spent leveling up, no-lifing and mining items and gold coins, may actually just turn to cold hard cash.
If you’re lucky you just might end up like CaptainSparklez or Jordan Maron in real life, the famed Minecraft Youtuber, who just recently bought his very own $4.5 million house in Hollywood Hills.
Jordan Maron, the 23 year old YouTube sensation, bought the massive hilltop mansion in Hollywood Hills for $4.5 million.
Yes you read that right, a $4.5 million dollar property in one of the prime locations in the country bought by a young gamer. And no, he is not son to Bill Gates or Warren Buffett with a golden spoon up his uh… mouth. CaptainSparklez is your average 23-year old gamer, until his Minecraft videos on Youtube made him a self-made millionaire with its almost 2 billion views and 8.8 million subscribers.
The 3-story home has plenty of space to host family and friends for an epic gathering.
Maron’s new property called the Sunset Plaza Pad is a three-storey, 4,100 square feet bachelor’s pad with three bedrooms and four bathrooms. It is also equipped with amenities for throwing legendary parties. It has an infinity swimming pool a la Marina Bay Sands, a party-sized spa, a barbecue place at the terrace front, and a wet bar for receiving guests. We sure would love to be invited in parties there in the future!
The Youtube sensation’s home has three bedrooms.
Included in the master suite is a see-through fireplace.
The property is also aptly named Sunset Plaza Pad, since the LA skyline view it offers is just truly breathtaking. It offers an unmarred view of the sky and the Pacific Ocean, overlooking downtown Los Angeles with its one-way floor-to-ceiling glass sliders. Well just see for yourself how lovely Maron’s new luxury house is in the photos below.

Jordan Maron racked up more than 8.8 million subscribers and gained nearly 1.9 billion views to his Youtube channel, which features videos of him playing Minecraft.
Maron’s story is surely inspirational for all aspiring gamers, looking to earn some moolah while doing the things we love which is gaming. But Maron is one of the few, for us average no-lifers we might need to take off the couch for a while to buy ourselves more pizza and soda while building our Minecraft dream house. 🙂
Inmates at a Maximum Security Prison B**t Students from Harvard University
Both parties showed no mercy. In the end, the team of prisoners defeated the Harvard students.
Three young men who are currently incarcerated at the Eastern New York Correctional Facility for different violent crimes beat three students from Harvard College.
Wait, it’s not what you think.
In this true-to-life story, which reminded me of the movie “The Longest Yard”--- except there’s no cunning and overbearing jail warden to make the prisoners’ lives miserable --- Carl Snyder, Carlos Polanco, and Dyjuan Tatro, inmates at the maximum security prison defeated three students from the prestigious school in a debate.
The inmates were not allowed to use the internet to prepare for the debate, but despite the lack of resources, the team managed to present arguments that the Ivy League students had not considered. ...
Mobile Showers Help Restore Hygiene and Hope of Homeless People in San Francisco
This project is preserving humanity, one shower at a time.
With the population continuously increasing all over the world, there is an emerging problem on housing, especially in large urban areas. Homeless people are a common sight in the streets, carrying all their worldly possessions with them while searching for the next place to sleep. Obviously, with no place to call home, these unfortunate souls have nowhere to take care of their personal needs such as bathing.
Which is why this project of nonprofit organization Lava Mae is a godsend for all the homeless people in San Francisco, USA. Lava Mae converted old city buses into mobile shower units for homeless people. By using the bus, the organization provides services across the whole city, transferring to places where it is most needed.

Woman Addicted to Pulling Her Hair Gets An Awesome Gift from Her Groom
On their wedding day, Tim gave Rebecca a gift that will allow her to live a normal life.
