We had these stools that were tall with a bicycle seat on them and you're just looking at a blue screen all day.

Videogames make you feel like you're actually doing something. Your brain processes the tiered game achievements as real-life achievements. Every time you get to the next level, hot jets of reward chemical coat your brain in a lathery foam, and it seems like you're actually accomplishing stuff.

Alton Brown
