There is an article I found today:

 

While some anti-gaming activists would love nothing more than to find new research that definitively links real life violence with violence in video games, one recent study in Britain found that playing violent video games online actually has a tendency to make people less angry. Miss Jane Barnett and her colleagues at Middlesex University are presenting their results at the British Psychological Society’s Annual Conference in Dublin today (April 2).

For the study, 292 male and female World of Warcraft players, aged between 12 and 83, were given a questionnaire on anger, aggression and personality. The participants then played the game for two hours and then completed the survey yet again. Ultimately, the results showed that “the gamers were more likely to feel calm or tired after playing – but there were differences depending on sex, age and personality.”

“There were actually higher levels of relaxation before and after playing the game as opposed to experiencing anger but this did very much depend on personality type. This will help us to develop a emotion and gaming questionnaire to help distinguish the type of gamer who is likely to transfer their online aggression into everyday life,” explained Barnett.

So in light of this I want to invite you all to play WoW 😀

If you go to Worldofwarcraft.com you can download the free 10 day trial.

A small group of ourselves have developed (are developing) our own guild called “Union of Evil Uteri”
(don’t you love the name).

We are Alliance on the server Cairne. If you wanna join our guild (any affected by infertility-male or female) just drop me a comment or email here and I’ll look for you online– OR you can whisper me/message me at the name “Gaemisen”.

My good friend Beck also has approval privileges so you can whisper/message her at the name “Kynara”.

Hope you game with us!! We are more than willing to help out if you need it too!!!

    I’ll try, if I can get away from Lineage2 for long enough to “marry” another game.

    Cool!

    On the knitting.. good luck! I like crochet, but can’t get away from my knitting. 🙂 It just seems like you lean toward one or the other. I too get bored with new stuff. I LOVE interesting new stitch combos. I’m really not a fan of straight garter stitch.

    The Filipino question.. too funny. I actually heard a Filipino once acting all upset that she was now a “Pacific Islander” and why wasn’t she “Asian” anymore? I found this weird (as did my DH). I think that’s kind of like saying, “How can I be a Western European AND British?” Ya know?
