Tetris playing vandals image from here.
Tetris helps take my mind off things. Why is this evil? Because it takes my mind off things that perhaps I should be thinking about. Tetris helps me regain my focus. Why is this evil? Because I regain focus, but not on what I should be focusing on. I can't play Tetris whilst listening to Metallica. Why is this evil? Well... because I can do anything listening to Metallica except Tetris, therefore it must be evil.
I only started playing this last year, after I had worn out all the possible game scenarios on Solitaire, and could not do any better on Spider Solitaire, and after I had worn out the mouse battery in less than three months. I just decided that it would be better not to play any games that required the mouse. Tetris, which I had played maybe once before was suited to my logic based mind, and to keep me grounded. Eh? Why would I need to be kept grounded? If I was any more grounded I would be six feet under. Exactly.
It is pretty bad when you play a game and as soon as the lights go off and you close your eyes all you can see are these tiny coloured blocks scuttling down your eyelids. Evil I say.
