so you admit your idea of living longer is for others to work harder

so you and your family can have more so you can instead do something that you enjoy (for little or no money)

glad we finally on the same page after all these years

only when ztir lands that 2 million DoTa2 contract will he be a contributing member of society again and pay more into taxes than he gets back in subsidies.

until then he is just being self sufficient on others money in order to pursue interests and hobbies he enjoys.

but any day now he will make it big time. he just has to hold out high in your room until the big money comes flowing in any day now. and flow it will soon!!!

I'll add some color to this.
With the video gaming thing, I'm down with that. In 1999, Tribes was very hot, and demos were commodities. People would watch demos, critique them, and then others would comment and chime in, occasionally there would be fights about how so-and-so did with LD on RD against (whatever team). It was a furball of activity, with everyone wondering how/if [IE] would ever be beaten.

That was nearly 20 years ago.

At this point, as humans, it's very normal to spend expendable time watching celebrities learning to dance, watching humans compete at all forms, and it's even acceptable (talk-shows) to watch, and then talk about, watching humans have a conversation. Rush Limbaugh and Howard Stern have how many people listen to them just talk to somebody? Jimmy Kimmel has a camera and makes zillions with people that want to watch him have a conversation with somebody they are interested in.

On the other hand. Video games are still kind of new, and for mainstream, watching someone skilled at a video game is new. Watching someone that is good at a video game is like watching a skilled welder or roofer, or anyone that is good at something.

I think video game demos are the future-- do you really think a player like Opsayo would have gotten as good as he did without demos? He cried about getting demos, he solicited everybody, he sent me countless pm's about wanting WarNipple demos. Jesus.

What I'm saying is that in the end, Opsayo was one of the best, I'll ascribe to that. Backtracking, how many demos did Natural get to watch? He didn't, because he was figuring things that Opsayo never had to.

Cliffs: watching video games isn't going away.

What are you arguing

That an established, popular entertainment industry is easier to get into than a new emerging one? I guess we shouldn't ever do new things then

No ****nut.. I am asking about how many ****ing people are making a decent living? How manyish people are successful doing this as a career? You know, to justify the time spent? 3? 50? 3000? 50 million?

There needs to be a search feature where people can compare this to the number of times It's been said, but that kind of algorithm would break everything.
