The Truth Behind the Fun

We've all been there, sitting at home alone at 2 in the morning wondering why our friends never called. You've already watched the latest movie you downloaded, and have exhausted youtube, so you turn to the only thing left to keep you from sheer boredom: Minesweeper. Yes, yes, we've all played the strategic battle of wits. Man vs. Machine at its finest. You try and out flank, out maneuver, and out think it while it merely generates a sequence of random numbers and tries to dry your eyes out so you can no longer see the board causing you to misfire. But have you ever thought of what you are actually doing? Its quite the violent game. This video I think brings to light a bit of what is truly at stake.

So maybe you will take your calling a bit more seriously next time you punch that little yellow smiley face.
