mental masturbation

Different people have different methods of releasing stress. Sometimes, in our busy lives, we need to just sit back and relax. Clear our minds. Make it a happy mind. Now, in the midst of exam fever, we resort to different techniques of pleasuring their brains : some people listen to music, some people watch tv, others take a nap. Some surf porn and wank.

Me, I play minesweeper. I reckon, minesweeper is mental masturbation at its finest. After few hours of triple integrations and block diagrams, I find that playing minesweeper is the ultimate kick. It calms my mind, lowers my pulse rate and gives me a satisfaction like no other.

A lot of people will say that Minesweeper is based on luck (I am talking about the 'expert' stage - the rest are for stupid retards). Unskilled people say that when you reach a straight line, you have to leave the rest of it to chance. That is only true 2/10 times. The rest of the time, its skill and fast thinking.

Today, I recorded one of my proudest acheivements ever. I managed to smash my old minesweeper record for the expert level. My new record stands at 199 seconds. New target : to finish it in under 3 minutes.

Exams? What exams?

**Post publication entry - 2 hours after writting the above article, I now have a new record - 187 seconds - FUCK - 7 seconds short of ultimate glory
