Gaming Isn’t Fun Anymore


We’ve seen this complaint all over social media: “Games aren’t fun anymore,” or “can’t focus on gaming anymore.” We see people talk about getting tired of video games, feeling burnt-out, or just not getting excited by them anymore.

A lot of this is over-exposure. The more you’re exposed to the hobby, the less magical it becomes; the curtains come down and all the glitz and glam reveals itself to be… No Man’s Sky, or some equivalent. But there’s still plenty of wonder left in video games, it’s just a matter of finding the right games and entering the right mindset to enjoy them.

YouTube Alternatives for Video Uploads


YouTube is a juggernaut, and that’s terrifying for YouTubers – even the most successful – who rely on a stable platform for a predictable income. Unfortunately, because YouTube routinely changes its algorithm and mixes up how it treats different content types, success is not entirely in the hands of the content creator. In the blink of an eye, YouTube could decide to shut a channel down, or could switch the algorithm in a way that jeopardizes income, or someone submits several false copyright claims and strikes a channel into oblivion.

Stop Taking Energy Drinks – Replace with a Healthier Alternative to Energy Drinks


Even the US military advises that energy drinks can do “serious harm to your body.” The military, which requires its deployed staff be highly alert and available for long hours, has lived on these energy drinks for a long time now. The DOD’s own science blog (found here) is now recommending against drinking so many energy drinks.

The report suggested that users of three or more energy drinks per day “were more likely to report sleep disruption related to stress and illness, and were more likely to fall asleep during briefings or on guard duty.” A lot of this was directed at the brand “Rip It,” who market their drinks directly to military branches and contribute to these negative side effects.
