The Internet is Responsible for Success

If you grew up during the dial-up on. I have always attributed my strong computer skills to early exposure. Back in the 90s, it fucking blew my mind that I could download music FOR FREE FOR FREE FOR FREE. Napster was the shit. At the age of 10, I could rent Playstation games from blockbuster, then return them after I copied the games onto my blank CDs.

Anyways, I learned so much shit from the internet. It was the ultimate substitute for my high school learning. The American education system has always been a bit lackluster when it came to teaching.

Looking back, I wonder what I would have turned into if I didn't have internet in my household. Later I think of how disadvantaged some kids are without technology.

Imagine that you have never been exposed to a computer until age 18, do you guys ever wonder how your life would turn out?

Friends are Normal in IRL, but Dicks in Computer Games

A common trend in the game I play called League of Legends. I don't understand why they think playing a game gives them an excuse to be a douchebag. Sure some sorts of trolling can be fun when a person really deserves it, but there needs to be a line drawn somewhere.

Perhaps it's the internet tough guy mentality, because when they lose...they become way too emotionally invested in that loss. They have poor anger management skills and lash out at those around them. It's very irritating, and I'm already contemplating on playing with other people.

It's like watching 14 year old kids go apeshit and yell on the mic. Dumb Xbox live kids get mad at something so they decide to spam the mic.

The worst part is that my friends are of college age, and the level of maturity they display is rather sad. They are good players and very intelligent, but absolutely the poorest sports during competitive play.

It seems people never lose with grace or win with humility anymore. Maybe games bring out the worse in people.

Do any of you guys have friends that are assholes in games but normal in real life? How do you confront them with this? It seems they are unaware of their actions.

It's always nice to kick back and relax with some good friends. Everyone spends too much time planning their weekend in order to be productive. I say fuck it. Don't even plan a weekend, just do nothing but shoot the shit.

What did you do during the weekend? Absolutely nothing, sir.
