I stopped playing actively 5 years ago n got my masters in theoretical physics last summer, with thesis on a quantum field theory topic. HC math is gonna get harder by age so if u are 25 or under u can still do it, otherwise u could consider economics or escort jobs

no you couldnt have cause you were too lazy, even if you would get the option to go back u would just say fuck it and play, noone is 100% efficient with time, you in most cases cant just learn and work, you still learned to think and coordinate hand+eye by playing and maybe gained some friends, learnt patience etc, dont be so pessimistic, think about the memories of playing

I'm orthodox and if you only have rank of the priest you can have a wife and children, though if you decide to make progress (bishop etc) you shoud have no wife Also what you mean by touching kids is a joke obviously meant to provoke catholic church

2018-09-25 00:55
I can't play that exact spor because I have never played it for real. I played something similiar when I was a kid. We would put like a obstacle and play voleyball only using legs. It is different but it has some similiar aspects.

Obviously I cannot count the hours I spent with PC games, only take a wild guess, but I guess it's around 15k hours, I got around 4k hours on my Steam account since 2006, however I started playing with SP games back in 2000 or 2001 (can't tell for sure). I played much less back then, but like 1-2k hours from 2000 to 2005. Then in early 2005 I got my first internet (64kbps dial up) and I started with online games, W:ET mostly. I think I had more than 6k hours in ET, from 2005 to 2011. Also played COD for good 500 hours, OW 500 hours, WOW + Diablo 500 hours. QL before Steam like 1k hours and a few SP games and stuff* for 500 hours I think. Sometimes I feel like that's a lot of time "wasted" in the past 18 years, but then I like to think the time I spend happily is not wasted at all. I rather regret the time I spent watching stupid videos on the web...

reminds me of that stupid "story" or whatever u can call it. Lady: Do you smoke? Guy: Yes I do. Lady: How many packs a day? Guy: 3 packs. Lady: How much per pack? Guy: $10.00 per pack. Lady: And how long have you been smoking? Guy: 15 years Lady: So 1 pack is $10.00 and you have been smoking 3 packs a day which puts your spending per month at $900. In 1 year, it would have been $10,800. Correct? Guy: Correct. Lady: If 1 year you spend $10,800, not accounting for inflation, the past 15 years puts your spending total at $162,000. Correct? Guy: Correct. Lady: Do you know if you hadn't smoke, that money could have been put in a step-up interest savings account and after accounting for compound interest for the past 15 years, you could have by now bought a Ferrari? Guy: Oh. Do you smoke? Lady: No. Guy: Then where's your fucking Ferrari?

2018-09-26 12:36
I have over 4k in cs:go and altogether I must have spent 20k+ hours gaming (I'm 34 now). I also got a phd in theoretical physics, a good job, etc. I think everyone spends time on useless stuff, its normal, and its also common to regret it. But you can't live without it, so if you're worried about work performance, the real solution is to strive for a balance. Fact is, there's not enough hours in a day for working hard, socializing, and a 6h gaming session, so you have to prioritize. It definitely wasn't easy for me, for example I remember sometimes quitting for a while so I could study for exams. Nowadays so many other things automatically take my time, that really I couldn't play "too much" even if I wanted to. I don't regret the time spent gaming, and I still enjoy it.
2018-09-26 01:28
Time wasted on whatever you enjoy is never wasted time!

then you are not a gamer by heart, you could have done both, or better manage your day to day priorities/week 2 week priorities. I played severl K's worth of hours in farious games and still manage to follow a respectable education in IT and get a good job. Why cant you? This smells of complaint this whole thread, now you blame it on gaming, no the blamed one should be you, and your poor descission making. PS: when it comes to gaming, i regret NOTHING. Ever.
