10 Life Lessons That 'Tetris' Can Teach You

Like most people who get into writing comedy, I'm not very good at planning out my life. Like, for example, this past weekend, instead of enjoying the outdoors, or spending time with my family, or bettering myself in any way, I instead chose to play Tetris for 28 consecutive hours, up to and well past the point where I got the "video game sweats."
Along with ruining the chair I was sitting on, this also basically ruined the time I'd normally use preparing this column. With no other option but to flex the mighty block-stacking machine my brain had become, I realized (and slightly fabricated the fact) that there are certain life lessons that Tetris teaches like no other game.

So join me, won't you, on what will no doubt be an entertaining exercise in a barely rationalized waste of time.

The story is too old to be commented.

Fun article. The only things I learned from Tetris is that catchy theme song and how to pack things more efficiently.

This is one of the funniest, and most true, Tetris comedy videos I've ever seen -
