The Fascination of Old Age

I’m currently sitting in a Panera enjoying my lunch, and nearby there are these two probably 50-60 yr old gentlemen (likely strangers) discussing the iPad. One of them asked the other about it, and the other guy is explaining it like it’s the second coming of Jesus. It’s taking all my energy just to not go over and discuss the frivolities of such a device.

It’s almost the end of the week! Who’d have thunk it. I’m getting sick of all the negative media on video games. Really media? Can’t you find something else to blame? It’s like parents can’t take personal responsibility for their failings at raising their own offspring, thus it’s OBVIOUSLY the fault of video games. And I know, I know this isn’t a new issue but it’s just now really starting to annoy me. Much the same argument as guns don’t kill people, gorillas with guns do. Video games don’t goad people to kill people, psychopathic urges do.

I’ve been playing a lot of League of Legends with my buddy Chris lately. I also made a bunch of new friends on there! One of them is from Australia. Cool beans. Did you know that it’s summer now in Australia? If not, then you can say you learned something today. I remember I was having a discussion with Alex and Chris about it last weekend (I think), and it was basically about whether they still call it summer, or if it’s called winter and they are just used to warm winters yada yada. But the more I thought about it the less sense it made.

Anyways if you want to play League of Legends with us, join now! Add me as a friend: Evilmanta
