You know what makes me feel old? Minecraft. My 12-year-old brother plays that shit for hours a day, and I can't watch him do it for more than five minutes without wondering why he doesn't find cup-and-ball more entertaining. At just 23 years old I'm already out of touch, as evidenced by the fact that the game's success has allowed its creator to buy the most expensive house in Beverly Hills.
Markus Persson reportedly outbid Jay Z and Beyonce and set the record price for a house in Beverly Hills with a $70-million offer. His new 23,000-square-foot home features a 54-foot curved glass door in the living room that opens up to an infinity pool with fountains controlled by an iPad.
Sounds pretty cool, right? Well we're just getting started, baby. The house also sports:
vodka and tequila bars, a candy room, an 18-seat tiered screening room, a state-of-the-art kitchen and an exquisite 18-foot onyx dining room table for 24 that includes place settings by Roberto Cavalli at a cost of $3,700 each. Three high-definition 90-inch television screens bring panoramic views of Los Angeles from the roof into the down stairs lounge – especially breathtaking at night, says De Los Reyes. Art pieces include a replica of James Dean's motorcycle and a chromed Ma Deuce machine gun. On a conventional note, the home has eight bedrooms and 15 bathrooms all equipped with Toto Neorest toilets at a price of $5,600 each.
Perrson already seems to be enjoying himself in it.

Here's a video tour if you want four minutes of
house life envy. You can binge on Minecraft until your eyes start to bleed (wow, that's something my dad would say), and you'll never build a cooler home.
