  1. So while watching the news this morning, I witnessed possibly the most I don't know what to call this news of all time. The World Health Organization will soon recognize "excessive video gaming" as a mental disorder. For me, as an avid gamer, this is a major insult to the gaming community. By doing this, the WHO will essentially cause a huge storm of discrimination and bigotry on the gaming community. We like to play video games simply because it's entertaining and it helps us de-stress. Others argue that it "keeps us away from society" and that "it always becomes an addiction", and other sort of Starlight Glimmer philosophies. I bet you this thread is gonna blow up sooner or later... Links:
  2. I'm leading towards Twi having OCD, Pinkie having Depression, and Fluttershy *maybe* having Aspergers what are your thoughts?
  3. This I think could be addressed. My OC has OCD. Do you think that other ponies in Equestria can have something along the lines of OCD or autism? If we look at Derpy, would it be possible for the shows creators to bring up Strabismus or Amblyopia? As for handicaps, we got Trade Ya; that one pony with a wheelchair. So I would think they can introduce characters similar to Rain Man in my opinion. Now about OC's if you saw a character that someone created and they gave said character a disability or a mental handicap like autisim. Would they get bonus points? I mean, I have Aspergers (or whatever it's called now) and I gave my pony OCD and a made up pony type of disorder called Four Clover Syndrome (which is like autisim). Please try to support why it can be a good or bad idea. This is a discussion after all.
  4. What is the capacity of the human brain? Some potential topics regarding mental power. Tulpas. Lucid Dreaming. Tulpas. I dont have one of my own yet, but I think the concept is rather interesting. From what I know of them, they're just basically imaginary friends that are extremely realistic. They can even think for themselves. Lucid Dreaming. I'm getting better at it as time goes on. I can think "Make it hot" and my body will get warmer. I can move my arms freely to swim when I'm in water.
  5. From your experiences, what is the hardest sport you've ever had to suit up for and play? I've made a poll of all the well-known sports here so give it a go. Anyways... For me, football is the hardest and most mentally-demanding sport I've ever had to play. I've played all the sports here -- hockey, some golfing, basketball, baseball, even some cricket... and all are tough, believe me. They're all fun to pick up and give it a go and they're enjoyable with friends. Now obviously, you can pick up a football and throw it around. That's not the entire game. You know how people say football players are [insert slang word used to describe female genitalia] because they wear pads?.. That couldn't be more irrelevant. It is true that all you do is just find the guy with the ball and hit them. Except they could be 225 pound running backs with shifty moves coming right at you. How do you stop that? The worst part about it is that that's not even one tenth of the whole game. There's so much mental preparation needed when you suit up for a football game. From understanding hundreds of your own plays to knowing all of the plays the other team might run. It's so demanding that there's two separate squads for offense and defense, respectively -- not like basketball where you're graded on both of them at the same time. When the ball is about to be snapped, you have to stay perfectly still. Any movement prior to that will screw you and your team over. And that little lapse in time will throw you off rhythm which is NOT something that you want. And all those hits you keep dishing out/receiving isn't just a one-time thing... that goes on for dozens of times. You keep getting hit and hit until you get sore. Sometimes... you get hit really hard which knocks you out (concussions) or gives you a major injury like an ACL tear. Knowing what the other team might do is a huge component in football. The game is more about field position than anything, and one mistake could cause you to lose your man and thus letting him score. But it's easy, right? All you do is find him and stick to him... except you're not really allowed to touch them until after they catch the ball. And how about those big offensive linemen? As a defender, can you get by their massive 6'4, 300+ pound frames, skillfully crafting your own moves to get past their awesome footwork? How about timing yourself just right so that you can knock the quarterback's pass down, at the same time disallowing your wide receiver to make that catch? And how about trying to take down that speedy and shifty receiver as he's running at full speed? How about it? How about being able to diagnose the defense and being able to execute all of your scoring plays? Getting past the defense to get even a few yards? Or pushing that defensive line back to get some tough running yards? How about when you're sacked or brought down behind the line of scrimmage, you shrug it off and continue to have faith in your ability to get something out of it? Taking all those hits and being pounded and being able to move on? Knowing that one play -- just one play -- can turn the fortunes of an entire team around? And how about doing all of this for not sixty minutes (the game-clock, don't be fooled)... but for three whole hours? Can you do that? Are you up for it? Oh... how about being able to run down the entire length of the football field for one play where the design is to "go long" and catch the ball? Can you defend that, or if you're the on supposed to catch the ball, can you make it? If you drop it, you'll have to do it AGAIN. Try doing this exact thing at least five times. You'll run out of energy quickly. Not even 2 minutes into the game and you're already tuckered out. That's how freaking brutal the game is. What's even worse is that if you go to any professional player and ask them about it, they'll speak a lot more on how tough it is than I can. So to say it's hard is an understatement. So let's hear it from you -- if you can manage to top this, I'll applaud you.
  6. I have a form of social anxiety. And apparently, a lot of people have it. You may wonder what social anxiety is. Have you ever talked to someone and wondered what they thought of you? Have you ever felt neglected by a friend even though they didn't intend to do so? Have you ever felt too scared of telling your concerns to your friend with fears that they'll respond to backlash? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you've got some degree of social anxiety. I attended a healthcare club seminar about mental illness. It may have been a very illuminating seminar, but what happened afterwards was the epiphany. I was talking with a friend of mine about my problems with Jaimie (Girl from previous blog post). She told me that what I was going through was something that she could relate to. She too would often feel depressed whenever she felt someone didn't give back the same love we give to them. She was also angry whenever she felt she was being treated unfairly, or frightened whenever she felt a friend wouldn't care about what her concerns with their friendship. It comforted me. All this time, I was angry at Jaimie because I thought that she had neglected me. I thought she threw me to the sides when we didn't talk as much. I thought she had seen me as awkward to be with, so she didn't want anything to do with me. When my friend helped me see that I went through social anxiety, I realized that the problem was me. I had overreacted based on my perception of reality which was untrue. I had swayed away from what was reality in favour of my past embarrassments with women. My social anxiety had originated from my past. I had many failed encounters with people, both men and women. I was often scoffed, ridiculed, and shamed just because people called me "retarded". They said all that just because I said I had "autism". I thought Jaimie had done the same to me because she was ignoring me and not talking to me as much. I thought she had thrown me aside like the girls from my past. Boy was I wrong. When I talked to her about how I felt, things couldn't be any farther from the truth. She apologized to me if she insinuated that she didn't want to be friends in any way. She loved being with me. She valued our friendship. I could only stand there speechless before I apologized back. It was one of the first times I was so happy to be wrong about a person. After that, we just kept chatting like old times. I didn't even notice that I was going to be late for class. She had to remind me about that. My prayer now? That I can continue to grow not only with her, but also with my other friends. That I can also overcome my anxieties and realize the truth when it's been laid bare in front of me.
  7. Okay, not to sure how things started, but I know there was a game involved, a video game disc. Some stuff happened, then. For some reason, it felt like Resident Evil, and there were a few people I saw that were wearing dark clothes and handling a load of weapons. (Guns, melee weapons, etc. Holding them, or looking at them on a table..) (there were some zombies..Uh...Yeah..) I had a crowbar at one point as was killing stuff^, then that changed to a wrench when someone gave me one. Uh, and then, it went a bit crazy. I was in this wide open place, that was quite dark, there were four or five big...Things. I can't really think of how to describe them. They were alive, and carried on dropping a load of these little spider things that chased me. I somehow had a chaingun at this point, and I blasted the spiders into oblivion, while killing the big things as well, then, the last one was spawning hundreds of spiders at once, making loads and loads of them..I shot it a bit, and it died, the army of spiders all collapsing and being still almost instantly afterwards.. As I walked through the corpses for whatever reason, there was this strange glitter stuff, like small yellow lights. A couple flew to me, but most stayed still, seeming really far away, yet really close at once. That's all I remember... Well, there you have it, my first dream in years....Speaks of a mad man, aye. Ah well, I'm hoping to have more...They are brilliant fun.
