The Duck is Dead Lady!
A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgeon. As she laid her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope and listened to the bird's chest. After a moment or two, the vet shook his head and sadly said, "I'm sorry, your duck, Cuddles, has passed away."
The distressed woman wailed, "Are you sure?"
"Yes, I am sure. Your duck is dead," replied the vet.
"How can you be so sure?" she protested. "I mean you haven't done any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or something."
The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and left the room. He returned a few minutes later with a black Labrador Retriever.
As the duck's owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from top to bottom. He then looked up at the vet with sad eyes and shook his head. The vet patted the dog on the head and took it out of the room. A few minutes later he returned with a cat. The cat jumped on the table and also delicately sniffed the bird from head to foot. The cat sat back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and strolled out of the room. The vet looked at the woman and said, "I'm sorry, but as I said, this is most definitely, 100% certifiably, a dead duck."
The vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and produced a bill, which he handed to the woman..
The duck's owner, still in shock, took the bill. "$150!" she cried, "$150 just to tell me my duck is dead!"
The vet shrugged, "I'm sorry. If you had just taken my word for it, the bill would have been $20, but with the Lab Report and the Cat Scan, it's now $150."

TINYMHG's BLOG

  Today we have a guest blogger with us. Cuddles the cat, yes my very own little baby cat. She is brought to you today by the miracle of animal to human and human to animal translation technology. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3I24bSteJpw&feature=player_embedded)

Hello, my name is Cuddles. I am a seven year old female cat, and have been living with the human you know as tinymhg, but his real name is (redacted for security reasons). He is so mean to me. Can you please help me? He makes me eat dry food. Will you save me from this monster? Try talking him into giving me wet food. And let him know I should get better treats than the ones he feeds me, yuck. Hey was then a squirrel, gotta go.
 
Okay then. Thank you Cuddles. You are now free to go about life.

Are you an addict? [UPDATE:] April 11, 2014
Posted on Friday, March 14 2014 @ 14:42:53 Eastern

This member blog post was promoted to the GameRevolution homepage.
~I went to the doctor and complained of a pain in my wrist. He then asked me several questions about my pain, where is it exactly, describe the pain, is it constant, throbbing, burning, etc., is there tenderness to the touch, and does it hurt when you move it? I answered as best I could, and he diagnosed me with a strain of my wrist tendon, he prescribed sodium naproxen, instructed me to put ice on it, and to not make repetitive motions. I then informed him I was a videogame player to which he replied: "Well, there you go."

No, I'm not talking about being a drug, tobacco, or alcohol addict, but of a more loose definition of addict that has taken shape in the past few decades. Behavioral addiction, or being a behavioral addict (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Behavioral_addiction) is when a person continues to do a behavior even after that person realize it’s bad for them. Things like gambling, sex, work, porn, shopping, or any other behavior  that becomes a compulsion have been called addictions including video games. So I ask again are you an addict?

Here is a list of questions (all are yes or no answers) to help you figure out if you’re addicted to video games:

1) Have you ever developed pain in your hands or joints due to playing a video game too long? If you answered yes, did you continue to play after the pain developed?

2) Have you ever run short of money because you have spent more than you could afford on a video game, a console, or video game related item/accessory? If you answered "no," have you ever done without something so you could afford a video game, a console, or video game related item/accessory?

3) Have you ever forgotten an appointment or another important event because you lost track of time playing video games? If you answered "yes," has this happened more than once?

4) Has anyone ever accused you of caring more about what is going on in a video game than in real life? If you answered yes, do you feel this is true?

5) Have you ever been fired from a job or been disciplined at work or school because of video games?

6) Have you ever lost friends or had a relationship fail because you didn’t have time for a social life outside of video games?

7) Has anyone ever told you that you play video games too much? If you answered "yes," has this happen more than once?

8) If you were unable to play video games for a period of time, would this make you feel anxiety? If you answered "no," does the thought of going a long time without playing video games make you feel anxious?

9) Have you ever missed a day of work or class so you could play a video games or go to a video game related event, such as a midnight release?

10) Have you ever ignored the need to use the bathroom, while playing a video game, until the need became painful? If you answered "yes," have ever not made it to the bathroom? If you answered "no," do you wear adult diapers while you play video games?

If you answered "yes" to all these questions, seek immediate professional help you are a video game junkie! If you answered "no" to all these questions, either you are a liar or you are not a gamer at all.

Now repeat after me: “Hi, my name is (Your first name or handle, i.e. tinymhg) and I'm a video game addict.
