  1. AoE is my FAVORITE! I never win, but I don’t even care. I’m not sure my games would even work on my computer systems now, but you definitely put the yearing in my heart for them ❀

    1. Awe, AoE rocks πŸ˜€ I always win because I always choose the easiest difficulty level. I love the building more than the fight… Shockingly, these games do work on my Win 10.

  2. I have never tried any of these types of games … dunno why, it just hasn’t happened. Now, when you describe it a little, it sounds like fun πŸ™‚ I only play some stupid ball game in FB, have done it for years.

  3. I’ve only played Grand Theft Auto (I used to, but not anymore). It’s a fun way to relax.

    Apropos male-female ration in a society, here’s from a research report about predominantly male societies:

    “A number of commentators predict that this situation will lead to increased levels of antisocial behavior and violence and will ultimately present a threat to the stability and security of society (31, 45–49).

    There is some empirical evidence to fear such a scenario. Gender is a well-established individual-level correlate of crime, and especially violent crime (50). It is a consistent finding across cultures that an overwhelming percentage of violent crime is perpetrated by young, unmarried, low-status males (50–52).”

    1. I’m intrigued by your reading material! The article does make sense. On the other hand, I think most violence comes out of frustration, and when I’m frustrated myself, which is all the time, basically, I feel like committing some violent crimes too. Except I lack the physical strength. And now my blog will be monitored for threat of violence…

      1. It’s very interesting research. What makes it even more interesting is that thousands of frustrated young, unmarried, low-status males, is coming into Europe/Scandinavia every week…

    1. Annoying to people?! What the heck? I don’t quite get why. Also, if a reader is annoyed by a blog, it’s his fault for not moving to a blog which pleases him better.

        1. Still, that doesn’t change the fact that it’s your blog and your rules. πŸ™‚
          (I still get email notiifications from your blog though, but in the clean-up that I mentioned, I no longer get them from a long list of other blogs).

          1. I’m very … ‘particular’ about my email Inbox, so that, if anything, would drive me nuts. It’s just another one of all my hang-ups. So, the Reader is perfect for me … I scroll, and when I see something that catches my eye, I stop.

          2. I’ve set up a filter on my mail, so that all the blogs that I get an email notification from (because there are some blogs that I really don’t want to miss out on) end up in a specific folder. The rest of them are in my reader.

          3. Filters are awesome. I have another filter set up so that whenever I email myself – it’s usually some interesting link, a list of things to remember/to do, quotes, recipes, etc, etc – they end up in a specific folder too. (a folder which is continuing to grow out of proportions)

          4. Yes! I do that too … I find it convenient, I’m used to it, and won’t have to mess with a lot of different apps that I forget what they really were supposed to do πŸ™‚

          5. It’s very convenient and sometimes you rediscover things that interested you at some point. “Oooh, yes, I remember that I was thinking about trying this recipe, but I never got around to it. Perhaps I’ll do it this weekend…?” (and then you re-rediscover it again several months later)

          6. Yeah! Links to websites ‘n all kinds of stuff! When I was new to the iPhone I wanted to try all kinds of apps, but they just made me nervous because I felt I didn’t have control …

          7. I’m so particular about my email inbox that I expressedly forbade everyone to send me chain messages, funny videos and such nonsense. I prefer to choose when and how I entertain myself myself.

          8. Yes, that silliness started early … with people sending out all that stuff. I didn’t forbid them, but they never got anything back from me, so it petered out. Also, I think Facebook took over for that — they post it there instead.
            Only messages I haven’t replied to, or otherwise done something to, sit in my Inbox … two, three at the most, and that’s not often.

          9. Internet, Facebook and chain letters came later here, so users like my mother still find it exciting to spam other people with forwarded messages… Incidentally, my email provider often classifies mails from my mother as spam and puts them in the spam folder…

          10. I found it the worst, when they sent them out on the cellphone, but I’m free of that now. My email provider even puts messages from itself in the spam folder LOL

          11. A smart email provider πŸ™‚ Your email may know more than you do – mine definitely guessed my feelings when it spammed spammy messages from my mother, however well-meaning she was.
