You can't actually function without downtime. I don't know if you need the PS4 specifically, but you do need something. If you tried to go without downtime, for example if you had an immature 19 year-old's theory of self whereby you believed that you should just work "all of the time" in order to be more productive, you would actually end up being less efficient and less productive, and you'd eventually end up wasting even more time and more money on downtime. Balance is a prerequisite for being a healthy human being, and it does seem that you have it.Admin wrote: ↑2 months agoWell, I do actually need this shit :p. It may not appear obvious but, why do I need that PS4, or why do I watch movies and TV shows? For the stories, for the wealth, and the wisdom that are contained in it. At the most basic level, I need to have access to those stories. I commute for 1 hour every day and my Galaxy S8 allows me to watch high-definition movies thanks to its processing power and its big screen.
So to reiterate, personally, I need this, I truly wither on the vine when I don't have regular access to video games, movies (again, for the story, music, beautiful visuals, etc.) or music. This is just me though, my personality requires me to have those, while other people couldn't give two shits about those but would need to go out regularly to satisfy their extroversion.
I just busted an open door by saying that "we're all different" (and therefore unequal Afro_Vacancy) but I know it's something that's hard to get, many times in my life I have thought that other people were stupid because they were different from me, and if they knew what was good for them, well they'd adopt my tastes and lifestyle too!
The happiness that stories and music bring me is certainly not short-lived, I don't know if other people can relate to that feeling here, but I just love to immerse myself in the music of a great JRPG I played years ago, it's hard to explain but to me it brings everything together when I do that, I feel like I'm in a safe place, it's not "just" (I hate it when people say that, "just" a game, "just" whatever", etc.) a fantasy world to escape reality or something. You don't necessarily have to separate the two so categorically.
Take away my movies, video games, music etc. and I will sink into depression in no time. And I don't think the devices I have are just another material object I don't care about anymore. Regularly, I try to remind myself of how much of a lucky bastard I am to live in this era, to have this Galaxy S8, this PS4, this laptop, etc. And even if I didn't, if I was born in 1800, I would probably have been a book rat, and I would have gone to the theater all the time.
PS: damn, this always ends up happening, the thread with the weirdest (or most uncomfortable) name ends up being a repository of the most interesting conversations :p. I thought about splitting it but it seems to go on and off tracks over and over again. Ah well...
Large organizations are similar. If they try and have "zero waste", they end up expending a lot more resources and forfeiting a lot more production than if they simply tolerated a modest level of waste.

But I read on the internet that homeless people always have hair.
So it's better to discard your cell phone and drop out of civilization -- it is a means to regrow your hair.
