Who cares? At least I can die happy. *continues to play video games while watching porn*

You forgot the sinful snack foods! D:

When you die, can I have your stuff?

OneAboveAll1462d ago

NO! And I don't like people talking to me while I masturbate! *slams door in face*

I have read SEVERAL proven studies about how a steady consumption of pornography actually leads to decreased sexual desire as well as making real sex un-satisfying.

Basically what it does it numb you sexaul stimuli.

As far as the gaming goes I have yet to read one convincing study other than the fact we spend billions of man hours a year playing video games instead of being more physically active or even possibly contributing to soceity in some form or fashion.

I dunno. I'm gonna do what I want. Back to watching Debbie does Dallas 2: Volume 4 and playing Dota 2 I guess. :)

Of course watching a good porno will decrease sexual desire because.... well....you just masturbated . Having sex with a woman will do the same. But it's just a temporary thing because an hour later you'll be ready to go again.

Everything "can kill our men." Video games and online porn is just the new excuse certain people wanna use.

I disregard those people.

Naners1461d ago

I completely agree. Video games happen to be the scapegoat of the decade, just like rock and roll and comic books have been in years past.

If anything's the problem it's the addiction itself whether drugs, gambling or gaming, and addictions usually only come about because of external stress or internal turmoil. A normal person doesn't just wake up saying, "Yup, totally getting addicted to video games and ruining my life." Rather, they retreat due to outside circumstances which could be anything from being bullied, heartbreak or losing a job or loved one.

It's so much easier to blame something inanimate that can't really fight back than blame ourselves for missing the signs, or causing the pain in the first place.

(I ranted a little bit, sorry!)

It's in our nature to destroy ourselves.*Watches porn*

I instantly read professor of psychology at stanford and expected to read some half baked idea full of holes. Reminds me when I was in college and had to sit through lectures. College In general is the most overrated institution I can think of. No real learning goes on there. Disagree with me all you want but this guy and most other professors are full of crap. Go sell your book somewhere else you hack. I can think for myself and don't need your warped point of view to live my life. This guy is seriously out of touch and needs to come down from his Stanford ivory tower more often.

If you don't learn anything in college then you only have yourself to blame. It isn't like elementary or high school where you are basically spoon fed lessons, you are expected to work.

What college really teaches you is how to learn, apparently you didn't.

GTRrocker6661461d ago (Edited 1461d ago )

No college teaches you to cram information and regurgitate it on tests. I learned more on my own than I ever did in college. If you need a professor to tell you what to learn then you need to read more books or watch the discovery/history channel more.

In the first year humanities it's often a case of memorization, but I only took science courses in math, physics and computer science.

In most of my exams after 1st year we were allowed to bring whatever books or notes we wanted because if you just memorized everything it wouldn't get you very far, you had to understand everything in order to solve the problems.

another freaking moron trying to force individuals into gender roles with no fundamental logical basis. as far as i'm concerned this guy a f#$%ing failure who wasted his whole life and is now trying to waste everyone else's. no, being a stanford professor and writing worthless books is not good enough.
