Re: I Can Quit Anytime...Really I Can

Even if you are hooked, it could be worse:

Man Dies After Online Game Marathon

"Lee had planted himself in front of a computer monitor [at an internet cafe] to play on-line games on August 3. He only left the spot over the next three days to go to the toilet and take brief naps on a makeshift bed..."

"Lee had recently quit his job to spend more time playing games..."

Re: I Can Quit Anytime...Really I Can



I scored a 33. Can't linger today. Believe it or not. I got called in to work. Thought about it for awhile, then said, " OK. Half day and thats it."

DW and I will have to find something to blow the money on.

Yeah, and you also used to walk 5 miles to school barefoot in the snow and live in a shoebox in the middle of the road, right?...

Backwards & uphill both ways, and right next to the roadkill!

And people wonder why we live in Hawaii now.

CNN seems to have pulled the link. Maybe they think it's an urban legend.

You had a road!!! Luxury!!

When I grew up, our family lived in a pothole on the shoulder of the road!! We couldn't afford to move into a shoebox until I was much older. And it was a used shoebox at that!

You had a home!!! Real Luxury.

We were nomads and when we got ready for bed we just took paper bags (free from the grocery store) out of our pockets and put them over our heads. 8)
