"I mean I'm still incredibly beautiful 18 years old from head to toe. Just look at me."
If you ever get bored enough to go to Minesweeper Online in order to play the classic game which used to come prepackaged with Windows odds are you will see the high score for the day and mylesbukrim.com sitting on the top of the leaderboard with a 1 or 2 second high score. It would of course be mylesbukrim.com, holding the record. So what is this website and Myles all about (archive)?
At First Glance:
As it stands Myles posts the most content to his Youtube in short videos:
These videos follow a typical format: Intro>numbered segments about different topics>outro
His voice is extremely monotone, and he speaks as if he is reading slowly from a script. The intro and outros are all the same, the outros being particularly amusing due to Myles putting on shades and showing off his body in croptop shirts.
The videos appear to be shot in his bedroom in front of a small wallpaper with his website's name and logo. But Myles has a dark secret he's been holding back. He also really likes his sunglasses and Nike(tm) head bands.
In his videos Myles alludes to having many secrets but his biggest one, and the one that he believes held him back the most in life, was being born with a pair of defective feet. He’s never clarified what that means and just leaves it at the problem ruining his life. Almost everything he considers bad in his life goes back to his defective feet. At 17 he states he did develop severe achilles tendonitis in both legs which caused further depression that persisted with him until his 30s. He is now 36 and considers himself the happiest he’s ever been.
Myles currently has several topics he is currently focusing on:
Myles has the very noble goal of posting his autobiography as a method to enlighten other people, and to lead them by example. He overcame his dark secret and is living his best life, so by following him you can too!
After a brief statement on his origins he skipped ahead to 5th grade as he felt that was when his dark secret began to impact his life.
These videos go on in this method highlighting notable events in his life but sadly as of December 29th he has postponed his autobiography since he finds it hard to talk about, and will continue it sooner if the viewers express they would like to hear more.
These videos are about different topics such as Minesweeper and different ideas he has.
Myles used to have more videos on his channel in regards to MylesBall (basketball), which he deleted at the start of quarantine. Now that there are more opportunities to go and play basketball he has decided to start uploading some of his footage once again.
His most recent uploads have been about MylesBall:
And here’s one of him playing:
Myles really likes his body. Like a lot. He considers himself in peak physical condition and is unafraid to show it off. His Instagram and Twitter are essentially just accounts where he posts pictures of himself shirtless:
The last one was uploaded January 3rd so he is still likely continuing this project.
Minesweeper Online Beginner:
Myles started playing Minesweeper Online Beginner this year as a result of the COVID-19 quarantine. For those who don't know beginner difficulty in Minesweeper means rather than 99 mines in a 16x30 area there are 10 mines within a 9x9 square. Depending on luck the board practically clears itself after one click. Myles quickly became addicted to this and found a lot of enjoyment in seeing how often he could get a one, two, or three second board clear, so much so that he made a table charting (archive) each of his wins within those times. He even has it set up to show the boards he got one second clears on off to the side:
Myles also has updates on this page as well:
Sadly, as this was news to me while making thread Myles has apparently decided to step away from Minesweeper Online Beginner, but he does promise to post proof of his games as he had discussed doing so in this video:
Coincidentally this is also the video in which he announced he was going to take a step back from two hours of Minesweeper games to one hour in order to give other players a chance to get on the leaderboard, and that he views the leaderboard as an excellent method to self-advertise. I'm honestly surprised to find out he's mad about cheating.
Hopes and Ambitions:
Myles has expressed his number one desire is to gather enough "believers" behind him and to give to people the knowledge necessary to transcend. What that means is anyone's guess. He has been pretty consistent in his uploading and with any luck he may provide some more humor as the new year goes on. He only started posting again in November after deleting everything earlier this year so hopefully he'll elaborate on some of the wackier stuff he's got. One thing he does make clear though...
His Past Work On Youtube
Thanks to some hints from @Answer about Myles I was able to find some more information regarding his start on the internet. (Post going into some detail on it here). Myles was actually very involved in the speed running community for a variety of games, finding shortcuts and various techniques for classics such as Super Mario 64, Mario Kart 64, and Star Wars Racer. He also made tutorials for how to set up speed running equipment.
Sadly for Myles his history as a speed runner was not without its dark spots. He was caught splicing together Super Mario 64 16 star runs (archive). This would be a shock to the community as Myles was one of the more trustworthy guys who didn't seem to be the type to cheat.
Tweet in question
While finding this I also found his old Youtube account and have updated everything accordingly.
