Once installed in this new wonder of mine it would remarkably increase its memory, and my tech friend assured me that's a very good thing. So we bought it. I marveled at it - just the sheer minuscule size of it. It really will hold 16 more gigabytes of info I feed to it?
Tech friend disappeared to look around at the other amazing developments in the store. There were very many of them. Her progress was interrupted by frequent delighted "awesome"s, and "cool"s as she surveyed technology and its splendor. Then she found a kindred spirit in the store manager and they commenced having a lovely techno conversation.
There's nothing to do
It took me a moment to process this. Really? Here I am, trying to figure out how I'll manage to go on the local Art Crawl all the way up the coast, plus a mushroom hunt, a concert, whale watching, gardening, landscape design, clean up after a visiting bear incursion, write two posts for my website, do some baking for guests, learn how to operate my new tablet (no, it's not a medication), find a bear-free area to walk, keep up with my knitting buddies and remember to try and keep everything straight in Evernote. Working a job was a cinch compared to this!
He said his time out of work is spent playing video games. Actually he and his lovely wife met through playing video games. That's what they do. Apparently if you devote yourself to playing these games you can make a lot of money.
It's then I noticed those games...masses of them. I say this humbly and with a sense of vaguely feeling I must be missing out on something. I've never played a video game in my entire life. There, I've said it. Just have never somehow found the time for it. There always seems so much else to do.so, therefore I'm not qualified in any way to judge those who are adept at this and build their lives around playing games. While I was in the store two other guys came in. They didn’t look at anything else. They just wanted games.
Games are indeed the new stone soup. Many people work together on them. Everyone gets together to offer the unique ingredients for them that their minds produce! Games can provide education in ways never dreamed of in past years. Yes, there are a tremendous number of actual genres within the industry. If your life depended upon it, could you honestly say you know what a MMORPG is? (for the record, it's simply a massively multiplayer online role-playing game.) Amazon has huge numbers of best sellers among all the video games.
This is BIG biz!

So let's not knock the new worldwide employment opportunities offered by video games. It seems they may be the answer to the ever increasing unemployment caused by companies who replace staff with equally increasing new technology. One thing concerns me though; who's going to do the nitty gritty jobs in the household, from laundry, cooking, to changing baby diapers if all the adults are playing and making games for a living? Or will children actually just become annoying appendages in daily life, if indeed they're needed at all?
Movin' on - Slower!
But their biceps are definitely shot. The caregivers would be quite distracted by numerous opportunities to play games, even as they as they attempted to dish out meds and focus on changing Depends. And it wouldn't matter that all visitors would be engrossed in their own games. Not much conversation would need to take place. On and on. Think about it.
