W.H.O. ? Wednesday.
There are some strange conditions affecting people these days.... And, apparently the W.H.O. ( the world health organization. THAT’S WHO :P ) Is set to make video game addiction a recognized mental disorder.
In order to be considered a video game addict, playing these games must cause a person “Significant impairment in personal, family, social, educational, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.”
As a person who enjoys playing video games this struck me as a little over the top and somewhat ridiculous. It kind of made you think “These people just need to learn some bloody self control and shut off that console”.
That’s until you get to the part of the article that mentions the deaths that have been connected to people playing video games. Simply because they chose to ignore their basic biological requirements and just kept playing.
The one that stood out the most was a man who died 50 HOURS into a Starcraft marathon. At some point, it went from a healthy hobby for these people. To an unhealthy addiction...
Just a little something I thought people might enjoy hearing about.
Still hanging out and taking it fairly easy over these next few days. Chilling with the family and what not. Hope you are all enjoying the Holiday down time! :)
Here’s a canvas I’ve been painting on with all my excess paint, for a while. And now, after adding a layer to my other canvas painting and messing it up, immensely... I’m going to try my hand at this one. I like the bones of it so far, so, let’s see what HAPPENS!
Happy Wednesday Everyone!
