That header picture never fails to make me laugh, even without snappy meme dialogue on it.

Wait, people who prioritize games over a relationship have relationship issues?

SHOCKING AND INTERESTING NEWS!

So people are finding more scapegoats instead of accepting the fact that they are stupid, self centered hedonists instead of acting like a normal human being.

I'm so proud to be of the same race.

@edgecrusherO0 You do realize that most studies are performed by students who want class credit right? That's going to mean a lot of studies are pointless.

Gotta love THOSE kind of people: "You can have fun and enjoy your life as long as it's our brand of fun and enjoyment. That means nothing we disagree with! It's not as bad as it sounds, we only disagree with a few things- like everything! Have fun!"

@Joshua Przygocki Considering it's BYU that did the survey, their idea of fun might be getting together every morning in a big special building with a pointy roof, comparing clothing, and avoiding caffeine.

@Cyroselle

Well yeah, I mean Brigham Young was the second president of the Mormon Church. Obviously there is some bias, but I'm not even talking about religion. There are pious and atheistic people both that have these sort of views. There are also plenty of good people, religious and not, that have open minds and just want other people to be happy as long as they aren't hurting someone(against their will of course, apparently some people do enjoy bdsm). This hypocritical closed-mindedness is why I avoid websites like reddit, and also one of the reasons I've moved away from some of the pious aspects of my life. I cannot stand phony crap, and both sides are full of it. (Sorry for the upcoming anti-reddit rant) I cannot stand reddit mainly because of the stupid "hivemind" concept. It's not so bad until someone happens to disagree... I mean I would even understand the clustered downvoting of someone else's opinions but reddit claims to be openminded and accepting. This sort of hypocrisy is just the same that they protest against churches and "stereotypical conservatives" for. That said, if a friend does happen to send me a link to reddit I won't ignore it completely, I usually just try to refrain from reading the comments though.

I don't agree with many things you write, but I do agree that reddit is filled with a bunch of self important butt monkey poo flingers

@Deliverator Like what? Not trying to pick a fight, but it's fun to hear what other people have to think.

@Joshua Przygocki Nah, no worries.

I actually have managed to stay out of Reddit for pretty much the same reasons you've listed in your rather low-key 'rant'. :D

There are some cool pointy-roofed special club people too, I'm happy to admit, even tolerant ones, but the social morons that share their membership tend to make all of them look bad by default.

That's unfortunate, since that's stereotyping as well. :(

@Cyroselle Stereotypes exist for a reason, that reason is they are mostly true. For example: I like PC gaming. I am not large by any means, fairly skinny and lanky, but actually starting to develop a bit of muscle and bulk up a bit(not growing, just from work and whatnot). I can be somewhat socially awkward, I wear glasses, and I am of above average intelligence, even with the things I am bad at. Am I the perfect stereotypical computer nerd? No. I'm not excessively obese or the excessive opposite, I'm not THAT awkward, just occasionally. I don't like metal music, I'm bad at math, and I like pretty things like flowers and butterflies along with pretty colors(I am straight, and I don't mean this in a flamboyant way, I just like wearing more than bluejeans and a grey/black shirt).

You know what? I'm not really sure. I went back through your comment history to see and didn't really see anything I didn't agree with. So, I apologize for the mis-statement. I'm not sure why your username had that association in my head.

So take out the word 'gaming' and we have the earth-shattering conclusion that neglected spouses feel unhappy. I think your last paragraph sums things up nicely.

Too bad they didn't just send you a check for a few thousand and save themselves a lot of time and money to come up with that earth-shattering conclusion.
