Benefits of Gaming, Eating in, and Making Money Online

Dear Brian,
What good things can playing video games do to you?

I want to prove to people that playing video games isn’t a waste of time. I want to know what are the advantages that video games can provide. I want something different than video games help improve hand eye coordination and how it make surgeons better. What are some of the benefits of gaming?

You can gain a lot from gaming. For starters, you learn about a culture that encompasses 1.2 billion people and 44% of the online population. 

VR gaming on its own has tons of uses for physical therapy, mental and emotional counseling, and more.

The military uses online video games to teach teamwork, as does corporate America. America’s Army is the U.S. Army’s official video game and is used as a training device for a wide variety of battlefield simulations. These days, drone warfare isn’t much different than a video game.

Simulation games run very realistic simulations of economies, warfare, politics, and a variety of other useful skills.

I honestly don’t know why you’d have to justify doing anything in your life. If it’s the right path for you, then it’s your choice. If someone is judging you for spending all your time playing video games, it’s probably because you’re not doing anything else with your life. 

Are you paying your bills?

Can you afford to live the lifestyle you want with nobody else’s help?

If so, then you don’t have anything to prove to anybody. If not, then you should probably focus on supporting yourself before trying to prove anything to anyone. Until you can do that, nobody’s going to listen to you, no matter how good a point you make.

The only place people may listen to you is online, but online everybody already knows the value of video games and any technology, so you’re preaching to the choir.

Dear Brian,
What could be the best three main point in an essay if I will talk about eating out and money spent?

It depends on what type of essay you’re planning to write. Honestly there are probably easier ways to cheat on a homework assignment than asking online for ideas.

If you’re writing a narrative essay, you don’t really need any main points. Simply build a narrative around your own personal experiences eating out. Tell a story and make it interesting. It doesn’t necessarily have to be one real-life experience – create an amalgam of different interesting incidents and combine them into one narrative.

For an expository essay, you’d need to gather facts and statistics about the cost of eating out. Hundreds of legitimate online resources exist for this, and once you have your facts straight, the essay basically writes itself. You just need to focus on the prose surrounding it.

Think of a descriptive essay similar to a narrative, but instead of focusing on you as a character, you’re painting a picture. Search for a deeper meaning in why we eat out and spend money in the first place.

With a persuasive essay, you’d need to come up with a stance and find arguments to support it.

For example, if you are for eating out, you’d want to focus on the experience of fine dining, how it opens you up to new experiences, and how you get an opportunity to learn more about the surrounding area, support local businesses, etc.

If you’re against eating out, you would focus on the cost of driving, pressure to leave a large tip, time wasted at a restaurant being unproductive, how much more expensive and unhealthy prepared foods are, etc.

Regardless of which type of essay you choose, you’re going to have to actually do work and stop being a lazy shithead who wastes the time of others by asking them to do your schoolwork for you.

If you’re that uncomfortable writing essays, pay someone to write them for you. Either ask a classmate or find a writing service online. It’s ridiculously easy and you can’t possibly be so stupid that you can neither write an essay nor hire a writer you can afford.

Dear Brian,
I have a laptop, internet, and $600 in cash. How do I make more money with just these items?

Sell your laptop on the Internet. If it’s a decent one, you’ll double your money.
