I keep typing short blurbs here in the hope of making you smile or laugh, but everything I write seems to be so serious today. So instead, I’m just going to remind you of how old you are – 19 years ago today, Mike Tyson bit an ear instead of throwing a punch. Time flies when you’re a cannibal.

In Other News:: Call of Dragons, PlayStation Plus has many millions of subscribers, JK Rowling is changing things in America and John Oliver says more funny things about Brexit.

Here’s the news we didn’t post because we were too busy watching the best thing ever.

    Don’t remind me. Just over a week until I run straight into the wall called 30.

        Getting old feels worse when you’re still young. 😛

            Play games and work.

          • Lord Chaos

            June 29, 2016 at 16:16

            That would be a positive, spend more time at home playing games

            June 29, 2016 at 16:17

            Good answer. But I warn you, as the advent of 40 draws near, you question your gaming more and more often.

          • Pariah

            June 29, 2016 at 16:17

            I’m already questioning it. I’m in my early 30’s.

            It is the family responsibility and the gaming and the work that is a bit tough for me.

            Been playing the crew over weekend, mostly because

            a) it was free and kinda fun to play
            b) I can play it with a toddler underfoot

            When the kids get a little older and join you – then you start to have fun again in games. Generally the type of game you play might change, but you have a lot of fun.

            Sounds like you know from experience.

            I do. 🙂

            Like, I’m picturing the time I could be doing my garden instead – it’s looking shoddy. Or at that half-finished painting that could be 4 already. And my 2 guitars gathering dust. The little things around the house that I never get to. And all because gaming is more appealing, and none of those are pressing.

            I know how that feels. In my thirties, I taught myself to write music, I bought DJ gear and learned that whole thing. Taught myself many things that I thought would add value to my life but in the end, None of that stuff added much value to my life apart from a neat distraction.

      for a given definition of “not”, right?

          you used only 4 words, but the meaning of that will unpack into many, many words.

          you have a great future in politics OR law OR philosophy or as a gamer who just wants to have fun.

            LOL! I love having an open-ended conversation. It always leaves the one I’m conversing with more confused than the beginning.

    And I’m going to sue him; I have a drawing dated from 1988 when I was in preschool on which I drew a rectangle
