I cannot believe that this actually made news:

Apparently people are calling this game "exploitative" and "tasteless"...

Haha, I don't know about you guys but I just enjoy building things, watching it fail and trying to do better the next time around!



Cheers,
Jeff

Well that was complete rubbish that I just watched. The "news" creating a "controversy" to fill some time. Another reason to love the media.

It's more the pre-Internet equivalent of click bait: "are your socks lying in wait to kill you? Details at ten!" Then they run the story and they talk about how a university tested a bunch of socks for hazardous chemicals from manufacturing and they passed inspection.

The intro was a bit inflammatory, but they let Mr. Morris get his point across nicely without ever challenging him or trying to trip him up. My complaints would be about their choice of in-game footage, and the fact that they had video from a real prison at the start of the clip when they were setting expectations for viewers about just what kind of game Prison Architect is. I think a timelapse of a prison being built would have still made their point while better priming the viewers.

My thoughts exactly. I spend more time planning and building the prison than dealing with riots and all that fun...

If you go to sleep, you usually have two options. You can either keep the socks on, or you can take them off. Some people like sleeping with the socks on, it gives them a sense of comfort and they will also sleep better due to that. But then again, there are also people that hate the idea of sleeping with the socks on. Which brings the question here, is it a good idea to sleep with the socks on or not? Socks factory in China

As you go to sleep, your body tries to adjust itself and it tries to reach a specific temperature where you feel comfortable. Keeping your socks on will help you achieve that temperature faster. Plus, it seems that this also helps you with the body’s temperature regulation during the night as well. As your feet are getting warmer, your body will transfer that temperature to the other organs and parts of your body. And when that happens, you will feel comfortable and your body will feel that it’s time to go to bed.

It goes even without a saying that a baby will need care, protection, and security from rest of harmful external factors until the age he gets self-dependent on his own shoulders and become enough vigilant to care for his own.
