Top 35 Similarities Between Gaming and Porn

found this off a friend's weblog:

Top 35 Similarities Between Gaming and Porn

1. The typical customer is male, unattractive, and socially handicapped.
2. Both are frequently enjoyed in dark basements.
3. The size of your collection is obscene.
4. It's not a good idea to talk about either on a first date.
5. Both revolve around fantasy and obtaining the unobtainable.
6. The artwork depicts images impossible in the real world.
7. When purchasing either in a store, you always ask for a bag.
8. It may be fun to make your own at home, but rarely turns out as good as the professionally produced stuff.
9. If you saw a woman buying either, you'd probably want to ask her out.
10. Extra excitement can be added with the use of props and/or costumes.
11. Low quality versions of both can be found for free on the Internet.
12. Countless Usenet groups are dedicated to both.
13. In either case, a gang of heavily-muscled men in leather with whips spells trouble.
14. Everyone uses a silly, made-up name.
15. It is not uncommon for participants to assume the opposite gender.
16. Both are frowned upon by the conservative right.
17. You usually take interest in both around age 13.
18. New purchases are usually looked at once, then put on the shelf.
19. The best and worst examples of each was produced in the '70s.
20. The German versions of each are the most bizarre.
21. Both are plagued with bad dialogue.
22. You usually spend a lot more time enjoying each alone than with a group of friends.
23. Everyone's called in to work sick at least once to stay home and enjoy one or the other.
24. Both make excellent bathroom reading.
25. There's always a big finish when you get to fire your gun.
26. Hollywood's attempts to mainstream both have been largely unsuccessful.
27. The hero's prized possession is his big, black gun.
28. Plots are often present only to serve the action scenes.
29. The story can be set anywhere from spaceships to dungeons.
30. While the person directing the action is usually blamed for a bad experience, it's usually the fault of poor writing.
31. Characters can have either high APPEARANCE or STAMINA, but rarely both.
32. You can tell the climax is imminent when the characters start screaming.
33. Candles and music enhance the mood.
34. You can meet your favorite B-list stars at the annual convention.
35. One word: Dwarves.

So true! My friend's boyfriend is addicted to gaming and porn, but unfortunately, she only knows about the gaming part and I don't have the heart to tell her thre rest....but anyway, he's such a little nerd and he just sits in the dark on his computer ALL day! He'll drop her off b/c he has a scheduled game tournament online or something lame like that.

A guy I've been out with a few times is a hardcore gamer. We all have our passions in life though. I love music, he loves gaming. It's all good.

I think as long as you aren't hurting yourself or other people, it's fine....if it gets out of control and you become addicted, that's when people should start to worry.
