Don’t Worry, Be Happy

This probably explains why I’m always less than satisfied with dinner when I pick, and feel better when the wife chooses what to eat.

And if you didn’t know already, TED talks are usually pretty interesting.

    Recently used this video as an illustration of a possible reason why I ‘got into’ Rift after I removed the choice in the matter (I told myself I WAS going to keep going until the first instance, dangit!).

    It’s an amazing vid, and so many on TED are as you said. I also linked Schwartz’ Paradox of Choice video which follows a similar line of thought in the impressions write-up. 🙂

    If interested. But mostly, yay TED!

      I read that. Good post, by the way. 🙂

      In my current WoW experiment of playing without combat (I don’t even equip weapons) it is amazing how fun I am finding things that otherwise might be boring. Trying to fish, collect herbs and get ore in dangerous areas without killing anything is quite thrilling.

        Ah nice. 🙂

        Must confess I don’t think I have the tolerance or psyche to handle such meta gaming like that. At least not over a long term / or for long in a single session.
