More Gamer Misdeeds

Daily Prompt: To Sleep, Perchance to Dream
Sleep is one-third of our lives: write a post about it. Do you love naps? Have trouble falling alseep? Wish you could remember your dreams? Remember something especially vivid? Snuggle under a blanket, or throw the windows wide open? Meditate on sleep.

Who needs dreams when reality is even funnier.  Following up from Maggie’s contribution (thanks for the laugh post a couple weeks ago), I now have something to top her find.  Did you ever think about taking a vacation from video games?  But it seems that over 100,000 people are doing just that in the world of warcraft.  Involuntarily.

Yep, it turns out that everyon seems to be a cheater using bots instead of playing themselves.  It turns out that to win in the World of Warcraft (a game for which you pay big monthly fees) people try to gain honor (aka points) by having their robots fight.  And thus this person managed to view a battle where he was the only one actually participating.

The only thing that could make this better would be John Oliver doing a segment on his show.

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
