7 Things That Make People More Violent Than Video Games!

3 replies 61 views Edited Apr 19, 2013

I've been playing video games my whole life and I've never done ANYTHING violent. Honestly, not a SINGLE violent thing, even when violence was CLEARLY warranted. For example, there was the time that guy in a bar broke a beer bottle over my head, or the time I went to war. But I could be an edge case — while I certainly put in my time on Super Nintendo, I also stayed away from a lot of the more potent violence triggers in American society. Here are 7 things that make people WAY more violent than video games ever could.

 

Your next door neighbor whose dog barks all the time

I swear to God if those dogs don't stop distracting me from playing Halo I'm going to go over there and perform a RUNNING RIOT.

("RUNNING RIOT" is what I call it when I have a reasonable discussion with someone who I feel is being inconsiderate)

 

The cancelation of science fiction shows before they reach their conclusions

firefly

I was as surprised as anyone to learn that the early cancelation of Firefly made George W. Bush so angry he started one of the most violent acts of our time, the Iraq war.

 

Sensationalist magazine headlines

the economist america european

No America is NOT turning European, The Economist! Simply delaying the admittedly overdue revenue increases and tax code adjustments does NOT mean America is likely to face an debt-crisis like the one currently endangering Europe since their switch to a single currency! DUH. UGH, this makes me so angry I've gotta go play some Devil May Cry to cool down!

 

Rock n' roll music

elvis rock n roll

Today, over 60 years since the United States senate went after rock and roll music for subverting the youth of our nation and dragging them down to new levels of moral depravity, we can look back and say, yes, they were pretty much right. WAY more people have been punched in the face during rock concerts than at Super Smash Bros. tournaments.

 

LEGOS! LEGOS ALL OVER THE FLOOR!

GODDAMN IT I SOMEHOW STEPPED ON EVERY SINGLE ONE. LEGOS ARE SO SHARP! WHO DESIGNED THESE THINGS? A RAZOR BLADE COMPANY? THE DEVIL?!

 

People who haven't decided what they're going to get at Chipotle by the time they get to the front of the line

chipotle line

What were these people doing their entire time in the Chipotle line? Thinking about outer space and sticking their finger up their butt? If you get up to the front of the line at Chipotle and utter even a single "umm", know that I will be killing you and wearing your skin as a beach towel.

 

Your iTunes library

itunes library

Why do all these songs sound the same? What are these thousands of untitled tracks at the bottom here? How did I end up with so goddamn many Magnetic Fields songs on here? JESUS F*CK I AM DELETING ALL OF THIS GARBAGE AND PUTTING SOME CATS IN THE MICROWAVE.

Whoa, got a little carried away there. But check it out, my sixteen daily hours of Call of Duty has never made me so angry I threatened to put cats in a microwave! Although, I don't remember getting this angry BEFORE I started playing Call of Duty fourteen hours a day. Ha ha, anyhow, video games are harmless!

 

What makes you more violent than video games?

The first one I left in the quote is so wrong.    EVERYONE in the govt at the time thought saddam had WMD and BOTH democrats and republicans (even hillary clinton) were out there saying he had WMD.  Both parties voted to go to war in Iraq, with large majorities of BOTH parties giving the authority to the President to start the war. 

 

Secondly, some people here may have fought in the Iraq war and may have even lost close friends there so you should really think before posting something so callous like that.   

 

 

 

Your 2nd picture, we are NOT overdue for tax increases in the USA.  We need to reduce the taxes or else our economy is going to continue this slow, sluggish, pace it has been on for 6 years now.  The Laffer Curve shows us that we have passed the optimal tax rate for revenues, we need to drop it a bit more to actually increase the OVERALL revenue levels.     If we increase taxes right now the impact on the economy would be enough that the overall tax revenues to the Fed will decrease, even as the percentage goes up. 

 

 

Sorry had to put my 2 cents in on those, when I see what I feel is bad info I have to say something.   Please don't think I'm upset with you, I'm not.  I just had to say what I had to say.

1. You mean your going to have a discussion with the dog? It is not the owners fault, that's what most dogs do is bark, it's annoying, but i've learned to block it out after living between 3 houses full of dogs, with mine included making it 4.

2. Or ANY show that get's cancelled before a proper conclusion...not enough to make me violent though.

4. Lol moral depravity? People have always been like that, it just took rock n roll to make it show, but then where is rap on this list? Of course more people have been punched in the face, it's their dance, it's called a mosh pit.

5. Lol, or tripping over any other toys, or hitting your elbow on something.

6. Skin as a beach towel? I do agree that in ANY food line, if you don't decide what you want when its your turn, then I do get a bit angry.

7. You went from itunes to call of duty? Anyways, I love itunes, and never had a problem with it, except for the untitled thing you were talking about, but that doesn't bother me.

What makes me more violent? Your threads on this forum. Lol im just kidding Kaz.

Hmmm... I suppose I would have to say, my laptop, and windows 8. You see, my laptop has one of those touch pads for a mouse, and windows 8 just sucks, so anyway, when I move my mouse just a little bit sometimes, it will open like 10 different windows on windows 8, one for music, one for the control panel, and this will happen a lot, and then I have to take all my time to close out of every window and hope it doesn't happen again, and then what happens? It happens again...
