I stood there and watched it for a few minutes, and nothing happened… And decided to make an entirely different purchase.

Online Gaming Tantrums

Can video games stress the nervous system enough to cause mood changes? Tantrums? Explosive behavior?

Let’s be honest. By age five, these kids usually have the mouths of sailors. A wise man once said that a normal person, plus anonymity, plus an audience, equals…F@#$%wad. The tendency for anonymous crowds to be abusive is well-known, and adding in the competitive nature of online multiplayer games doesn’t help things.

You may have experienced it yourself, that player in the chat who gets angry and aggressive; calling people names and filling the screen with lines of typed abuse. If you’re on voice-chat, it could be shouted insults filled with curses, or sneered commands from someone convinced they’re superior.

This environment can become overwhelming for some, and many decide to drop out and play something else. At first, you might be driven by your emotions and react the same way, but after you realize it’s just a game and it’s not actually worth it, you’ll start looking for different online games that will not have these kinds of upsetting interactions with other players. Online gambling games at casinodames.com, for instance, are very popular because their players are more focused on their strategies than insulting their opponents. This doesn’t mean you will not feel stressed or rage while playing, but if you do at least you know it’s worth it since it’s not just a game, you actually have the chance of winning real money.

Why is it the word “innuendo” sounds a little nasty itself?

Why Dogs Follow You to the Bathroom

This makes complete sense, especially when I consider one dog who incessantly peed on the toilet…

Philosoraptor: Does your dog follow you to the bathroom because you follow it outside, so the dog thinks maybe that's what it's supposed to do?
