Chris asks…

How do i convince my parents to let me buy rated M games?

please dont say ive heard worse language at school… ive tried that… and a bunch of that other crap… i reaalllllllllyyyy wana buy Halo3 Odst, and MW2… i already have Halo3… the guy at wallmart said “our parents dont care, right?” and i was like”yea,yea..” :) ) please helpppp!

admin answers:

There really is not much in MW2 to make it an M rated game. I’m 18 and I’ve watched rated R movies since I was about 6 and played M rated games for about the same time span.

Honestly, I do not understand the argument behind not letting someone play an M rated game, it’s completely illogical. Even a child can discern a game from reality.

Playing so called “violent” video games will not negatively impact your mental capacity at all. These M rated video games are blasted for being violent or crude…while that is about as far from the truth as possible, these games like MW2 are simply a fictional representation of reality, nothing more. And I see no logical reason to exclude a child, teen etc. From playing a game that is, after all, fictional.

Your parents’ actions are unwarranted, by stopping you from playing M rated games they are implying that you lack the ability to realize the difference between fantasy and reality.

I played these so called “horrible” video games throughout my life and I turned out perfectly fine. The violence in the games never made me violent or caused me to murder someone, the claims that M rated games influence violent behaviors is ridiculous. I participate in numerous sports and am physically active, so no video games do not make you into a slob, nor do they make you lazy. Not only am I on varsity sports, but I am also at the top of my graduating class.

So no I do not believe that playing M rated games impairs your abilities whatsoever. I presume that your parents’ reason is that these games are too “violent”, if this is their claim, then that is absurd and they should go back to elementary school – maybe they might learn something.

Try to convince them that you can recognize the difference between fantasy and reality. And that playing these games will not effect your mental ability. Do not beg or be anxious, that will only make you seem like a child, be mature and stay in control – that way they will have to listen to you. By desperately combating and restricting your ability to play these games – your parents are expressing the most pathetic sense of immaturity.

Remember, just because you are younger does not mean that you have less intellect or knowledge. In many cases, the youth generally know more than their parents. The lack of cognitive mental abilities among our parents’ generation is frightening.

Betty asks…

For hearing impaired people: were you used to be depressed?

I was extremely depressed due to hearing impairment, and I lost confidence all through past two years ago. I had suicidal thoughts until I got help.

I would like to know if I am alone or not. Were you used to be depressed like me?

admin answers:

Im profoundly deaf and I’d like to tell you everything (well my life) I did get really depressed in year 7 though.
Did you know that I never spoke at all when I was in my primary school?
I only used sign language (for communication) and I never used my voice. I was like an ‘expert’ in sign language. I was using them 24/7. It actually made my family upset that they could not communicate with me in a proper way. My aunties, uncles and cousins. They didn’t know how to communicate with me, instead they just did not talk to me. Only a few of my cousins went on sign language course so they could make my life better by understanding them more. This has made me feel confident in my family, BUT I am still not confident being around my uncles because they don’t even know how to talk to me. I always come up with an answer..”huh?”. Hm.
In my primary school, I now personally think deaf people can be very judgemental on hearing people (if they don’t know hearing people around the school, or have got any hearing friends who they actually don’t understand etc.) It’s that we always have thought of them as ‘horrible, mean people’ (i was wrong, so i take back what I said about hearing people :) ) Well to be honest, I am still judgemental but not on anyone, just certain people who needs to be judged by people who’s better than them. :)
My friends at primary school, I’m glad I actually met them .We had a lot of ups and downs, but we still got through. We all went to different school so it has made us hard to put up with the new world.

Aah my life was influenced by my parents’ decision
My parents chose a hearing school. Yeah of course, they’ve got a unit for deaf people.

When I was in year seven. Pfft, most difficult experience I ever had. Hearing people? My speech was very muddled, so I didn’t expect them to ask me to repeat what I just said. Obviously, they walked off. That do hurt me, still. I still struggle with hearing people right now. I just don’t understand why they look at me like, er I’m someone different? I guess they can be judgemental then.

In year 8 & 9, I still didn’t like hearing people and I actually wished I would move to other school that has more deaf people in. To be honest, I am glad I didn’t move :) Because none of this would have happened, I wouldn’t have learned anything about hearing people.
In year 10, I was getting used to it, yes definiety my confidence absolutely boosted. Hm, I actually made new friends and some of them I’m not friends now, which still hurts me because I was absolutely close to them. Oh well, that’s life. I started to make more friends, which helped my confidence to improve more. Yay.

Now? I now understand about what the world is like. If I didn’t know all of this, obviously I would be dumb lol :P . In fact, if I didn’t come to Vyners, I wouldn’t speak at all. I wouldn’t have used my voice. I think I would be very judgemental of hearing people lol. Deaf culture is still envolving around my life though ! Once, a girl (she’s deaf) said I don’t know what deaf culture is. That did hurt me. Well, to be honest I think she said that BECAUSE I go to a hearing school, which shows that she can still judge hearing people.
I started loving music! They’re absolutely great! I didn’t know what they were for, but now I do! Without them, our lives would be empty.

Paul asks…

Have studies been done on increased telepathic abilities of dying people?

As health declines and the ability to communicate in normal ways is impaired, could dying people find other ways to reach out and communicate what they feel still needs to be said, using telepathic ways?

Have people reported “hearing” the thoughts of the dying who could no longer talk?

admin answers:

I don’t know about any studies on it, but I know it has happened before, in my family and to other people I know. Way back, a long time ago, it was actually easier for humans to communicate telepathically than it was to use language. Why? No misunderstanding, no verbal errors, less conflict, and thoughts… Are universal! Where as language is not. It happens all the time actually, you just don’t realize it. Every time a person thinks about something, they send out thousands of signals to people around them. It does reach you, but often just goes to your subconscious so you don’t realize that you just received their thoughts. Our subconscious is full of thoughts and information we absorb from our own experiences, and other people without even knowing it. However, if you focus on trying to communicate with a person by sending them a thought in your mind, for long enough… It can happen.
