I just saw this letter today, and found it very interesting and pertinent to early retirement. Here's a guy under age 40 who "got his" and decided to get out of the rat race and focus on living life. Nice.
I especially liked this part: "Moreover, I will let others try to amass nine, ten or eleven figure net worths. Meanwhile, their lives suck." So the guy must be sitting on a portfolio worth $10,000,000+. In other words, enough. I guess he got the standard 20% of profits from his hedge fund, which must have been a huge sum on a near-1000% profit.
His "resignation letter" was a bit of a middle finger, and the part about weed was somewhat of a non-sequitor. But I can't say that I disagree with much of it. Except the slight conspiracy theory undertones - I think weed is illegal because it is branded as immoral and detrimental (true or not), not some conspiracy of MegaPharma.
