Super Mario Maker 2 on the Nintendo Switch is proving to be super popular and time-consuming, especially for Twitch streamer Trihex

The game, which allows users to create their own levels for the community to play through, features some of the toughest challenges in the history of gaming. In fact, if the submitter didn’t have to first complete the level themselves for it to be uploaded, some may say some levels were impossible.

One of those levels is called “Cat Trick EX2” and while speed runner Trihex did complete the level in 42″316, it took him one third of an entire day to do it – eight hours in fact.

Trihex has been setting records for Super Mario Maker levels (Twitter/Trihex)Trihex is a notorious Nintendo speedrunner.

The lava level has the user navigating death-trap infested obstacle course filled with hazards, spikes, Thwomps and other threats en route to the goal as Cat Mario.

Upon completing the level after hundreds of gruelling attempts, Trihex’s reaction may not be what you would expect. No triumphant fist pump, but rather an exhausted grin.

“Yeah, I don’t even… dude,” is all the popular streamer could muster to say after the struggle.

Even then, his time couldn’t match that of the level’s creator: 38″516.

Just for context, in the time it took Trihex to beat the level, his viewers could have had time to watch the extended edition of Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King TWICE and he still wouldn’t have finished it.

If you started watching him play the level then got on a plane in New York City to LA, you would have completed your flight before Trihex had finally beaten it.

You have to commend the streamer for never giving up or walking away from the challenge.

Only time will tell if a new level will take him even longer to complete.

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.

Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.

“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.

“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.

“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
