After seeing so much I guess I was just shocked to learn that you where all still here. Games are fun, thats why there games, but there comes a time to move on. Sure things like this are good for wasting time, but there is so much more you could be doing with that time, theres always newer experiences to be had. Is your stories to your children or your eulogy after your passing going to involve how much you liked computer games because there's really nothing else to say? That, is what would be sad.
In closing i guess the point of all this is to say.... For God sakes get out there and do something, ANYTHING to contribute to society and the progression of our species as a whole.
I can't think of anything sadder than you starting this thread.
You sound like someone whos eyes have just been opened to the world, good for you. I'm sure you've seen some new sights and done many interesting things over the past few months. Of course, I know nothing about all these great things you have been doing but what is sad in that you look down on others. Just get down off your high horse for a second. You are not the centre of the world.
You seemed to be focused on making a difference, I'm not going to write my life story but ansewer me this:
-Are my 3 years working for Engineers without borders worthless?
-What about 2 1/2 years working for the UN?
-Oh and were my years spent travlling through over 100 indivdual countries, a waste of time and money?
-My young children... pfft... they are useless wastes of spaces, aren't they?
I guess you've seen a hell of a lot more in your life than me. I guess you've made a larger "contribution to society" than me, whatever that is.......
Then again, I guess I'm just not young enough anymore to know it all....
