« Analogy - Definitive or Provocative? | Main | Sines of Summer »


No, no fish in this post, though if I had a nice picture of a tuna I'd post it. What I'm referring to is this survey of addiction to online multiplayer games. I try to avoid computer games of all kinds because I know from experience that they are addictive tools of the devil so I'm not surprised to see the level of addiction. I am a bit surprised to see the amount of time that people spend playing them. It is starting to seem less fantastic that people are actually living inside their machines. It is also interesting to see that people are doing all sorts of different things inside the boxes. Some are even working or playing at working.

My question is how long they can live there before their physical bodies attenuate and atrophy? How long until their fingers are doing all the walking? Well, enough for now. I should go outside.
