    Mind Games.

    I don't understand mind games at all. I've had people try it on me & it never makes sense. I don't understand why people would want to waste their time on things like this. I know it arises from people having low self-esteem, feeling inadequate, & just plain hating themselves...

    I can't stand MLG especially the one

    for CoD. Some hard working immigrant is great at what he does but is under paid but some kid who dropped out and has no job is paid to play video games and has won 500K at a tournament but we don't have money for those who really need it.
