    Wish you all the best, the whole team. The internet is a strange beast thats ever changing, it can lift you up and drop you down. Keep your heads up and hopefully james will be back strong as ever.

    I've been following you guys for years, I feel like I was just a kid when I subscribed and now I'm a full grown man, seeing this hurts because James has been an inspiration to me for years, I know it'll take some time but when you have good people like you guys everything works out eventually, Good luck guys I can't wait to see what you guys come up with next.

    There are 17k comments at the time of writing this but I know James is sitting there reading these so I hope he comes across this one. I started watching yall back in about 2015-2016 and you, colin furze, and william osman quickly became some of my favorite channels. I was pretty young at the time, maybe 12-13 but I was enticed by your abilities and was happy I found people who thought how I did, I wanted to make cool shit. I started working on transforming my room into a workshop and built a desk where I could store all of my electroinics and tools. A desk turned into a becnch, my pc to a CAD machine, and I even moved my turtle habitat into the hallway so I could fit another bench and more large tool setups. I now have a shop that I happen to also sleep in. Ive built dozens of very impressive projects using a wide asortment of methods, all because of things I saw in the shops of creators just like you. I'm now 19, in college for electrical engineering, all because of creators like you. I can and do build whatever my heart desires because people like you showed me that the only limitations were literally science itself. I owe all of my success to creators like you. All of my friends (and parents) think my room and the things I did as a kid were crazy, but everyone always loved what I came up with. I got to do what I loved from a young age because I had mentors like you, who didnt even know I existed, showing me it was possible. The skills, knowledge, and heart I grew for the wonderful field we call engineering all came frome my favorite people on youtube. Often times it felt like I was alone, Id get stuck and no one I knew had any idea how to fix the problems I was trying to overcome in my projects and in life itself, but I had people like you to look up to from a young age, and it got me to where I am today. I know shit gets hard, and It will not get easier, but the next time you are looking at your bank account thinking youve failed as a creator or entreprenuer, think about the impact youve had instead, because there are thousands just like me who owe it to people like you for being someone to look up to when life got too hard, when the projects hit a fault, or when things seemed impossible. Thank you for following your dreams, and inspiring hundreds of thousands of people just like me. Your contribution to us could one day change the face of science forever, and personally I think that means more than any amount of sucess anyone could have ever earned.

    Hey James I’m sad to see you go but I understand completely. I’ve been watching you since I was just a kid when you only had a few hundred thousand subs and now you have over ten million. You are the reason I’m enrolled as a freshman mechanical engineering major dreaming I could work with you guys on your first iron man flight projects. I’ll miss you and thank you for everything.

    I remember watching back in 2016 when all the civil war hype was at its peak. Can’t believe it’s been so long. One of the best channels for sure. Hope it all works out.

  • Branden Quintana

    Honestly, I’ve always been worried about James in the videos he gets hurt a lot during the videos and I’m happy he’s getting the help he needs. Fight on James👍

  • Haddon O'Neill

    Thanks for being honest about the state of things and being open about James' mental health. Like others have said, it is amazing how far the channel has come and I hope that James takes all the time he needs.

  • Badger Watkins

    Take however long you need James, were all here for you.

  • Alan Pehrson

    You guys have always been awesome. James, I wish you all the best. This kind of struggle is much more common than most people know. You're not a shitty entrepreneur, you're an amazing one, but you're also human. Find that core of compassion for yourself. We all love you, man.

  • Super Crazy

    These guys should definitely get government funding or some massive company funding for their hard work and dedication because ours might just be not enough but of course we all hope for the best but we all should prepare for the worst and that’s all peace.

  • Trixx

    We love you James. I wish you the best and can’t wait to have you back ❤❤❤

    James is one of the main reasons I finished my engineering degree. Spend most of my time writing these days but nothing comes close to the meditative calm of hacking away metal with an angle grinder for hours on end.

  • Joseph Colburn

    I hope he still comes back every now and then at least
