You're depressed because you're not getting enough exercise, you fat bucket of tard.

Go outside.

A way to console him?

The chances are remote.

Yeah, someone who can press the right buttons.


I'd start with some exercises, simple things like moving his arms, up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, before actually selectively starting.

A male teen with wrist problems?

There's a gimme of a diagnosis.

Ive been told such advice has been sought by people seeking reincarnation, all wanting the code to more lives.

Or people wanting to cheat their way though life. You can't start at a different level. You have to start at the beginning.

Sybarite: Teetering on the brink of losing his girlfriend?

That was what caught my attention. 17 hours a day on the console with a girlfriend...that kid has the life.

Good for him, finding time for a girlfriend between 15 hours of gaming every day! That's very impressive. I bet she's quite a catch too.

I don't see why he has to play stationary. Why not hop on a treadmill during gaming time?

Better yet, a bike that powers the system. Slow down too much, and you lose your progress!

He has to bring a friend with your method though....con ami, if you will.

Have you ever tried playing video games while walking at any sort of challenging pace on a treadmill? It doesn't work trust me. More likely to break your neck than get any meaningful exercise or gaming done, unless you're a superb multi-tasker.

/tried it once, went back to movies/TV
//prefer running outside with music these days when I can motivate myself to, which isn't often enough

Wow, $5 a month and you forgot what site you're on...

He needs fresh air, exercise, sunlight and to stop being such a lazy pos.

When I was in college we called those "snow days". As long as there was beer and/or pop in the fridge and a decent supply of pop tarts and easy mac, it was great. Didn't have to leave the dorm until it stopped snowing and the sidewalks were clear.

Or an extreme DDR'er

"There is nothing that I can do to stop him playing."

Parenting fail

Recumbent exercise bikes work well. If I don't feel like running outside, I can hop on the bike and read a book (though the pages get sweaty/disgusting), or play a console. Even used a wireless keyboard to some success to check emails and such.

Dude has a girlfriend? I can't even get a girlfriend and I have two jobs!! I should quit and play video games all day.

FTFA: Kid's mom: "There is nothing that I can do to stop him playing."

WTF? How about a hammer to the console? Or better yet, take it to the pawn shop and sell it.

"I do not want to upset him by taking his consoles away."

Oh, well then, perhaps you should kill yourself.
 
2010-08-25 05:34:56 PM
I call BS. He must go without consoles sometimes, those RRODs don't RMA themselves.

The key point. A pic of the young lady would no doubt clear up the mystery.

Beat his ass. Then send him to do some hard labor in a hot climate. Bam depression gone and a new found appreciation of life.

/dude is a pussy
 
2010-08-25 05:38:13 PM
Is said girlfriend in a long distance relationship?

Is said girlfriend hiding a secret?
 
2010-08-25 05:38:27 PM
Maybe I'm picky in my games, but I haven't even found a game on Xbox that I could play for half that ammount.

I like to call 15 hours on an Xbox....Sunday. And I bet his girlfriend is Canadian.

Well mom, I don't know what to tell you.

I do. Take the kid to see a psychiatrist about that mood disorder of his.

Jesus I barely manage to scrape together an hour a day to play video games, and my girlfriend gives me shiat for it.

likes838: Maybe I'm picky in my games, but I haven't even found a game on Xbox that I could play for half that ammount.

With how games are made now, 15 hrs. assumes you are beating the game 3 times and working on achievements.

How could you? She lives in Canada.

put him on an exercise bike outside in the sun, give him a bottle of sun screen, a DS, and every rpg on the system

/easy enough

Just see what she'll give you shiat for if you marry and/or impregnate her...

Blowjobs and candy? That's what my dad said. He's right....right?
 
2010-08-25 07:18:24 PM
You'd figure he get more joy sticking with his girlfriend over video games.
