    Finally, it composes itself. "Um, actually

    no u", the masked figure smugly replies, donning his trusty kappa emote as pushes his definitelynotcosco glasses up to rest on his smooth brow. Smiling, he tilts his Secretlab Omega 2020 back to full 180 degrees, puts his hands behind his head, and lets out a sigh of pure bliss. "Ahh, another good days work", he says, looking at the beautiful ltt insulated water bottle glistening in an ad beneath the youtube video. He watches the comment section with the eyes of a hackerman in the wild, waiting for the likes to inevitably flow in like so many oxygen molecules in a vacuum chamber, hiding his thin, nerdy frame on the other side of 240 hertz of pure g-sync ultimate.

    If you are going to use a monitor for your laptop. note: some laptops even if configured to not sleep when the lid is close, the monitor screen goes black and so as the laptop. Though it still has power

    A lot of work put to create a 15 min video. Those 5 million views are totally deserved. And props to you for calling out a company when their products/services are deffective and expensive for a change (table, Apple's repair policy!!, and so on).
