I played Runescape for a bit, and there were kids who spent hours just chopping down fucking trees to build up their stats. How can anybody have the urge to do that as a leisure activity?
this guy i used to work with, he spent hours in some online game (can't remember what, they're all basically the same) building a path. a fucking path. at what point does that become entertaining? it's not even like it led to a cliff and people were forced to walk along it, it was just a path. at least if you're chopping down a tree you might be able to transfer some of your anger in an "arrrgh, take that you fucking tree, i'll have you" kind of manner
