This video may seem superficial when you initially view it but when you look at it more in depth you see all of its capabilities.  I really like how it transfers between two time period. I may use this concept to show the evolution of technology. By showing 1990’s when I was growing up, and then present time.

I feel like this is what we would look like if we met sooner.

I would have disregarded your cooties, and the fact that boys smell icky.

I would have leaned into your arms, no matter how old we were…because love does not have an age.

We may have been 14, but I know if I met you sooner my feelings would have been the same.

Living life to please others may not satisfy you in the end,
but living life to satisfy all of your dreams will lead you towards those who matter.

PREZI - the ultimate organizer

Prezi is literally the best site in the entire world. It is an unlimited piece of butcher paper, where you can organize all thoughts and ideas. My paper that I am in the process of constructing is about the Internet and whether it has been beneficial to society and how we have changed from it. Well, what better way to address my research on an ONLINE site. I feel like my thought are less mumbled jumbled because they are not sprawled out on a crumpled piece of binder paper.

Do you remember your first date? Were you trying to make the “move” but afraid of how the girl would act? If we had a game like Sweaty Palms growing up then we could have virtually practiced our tactics online! Super cool huh? NO.

With Sweaty Palms you have the ability to pick your opponent ( the one who you want to make a move on) and pick a difficulty level. You then proceed to scoot close to them, and nudge their arms so they try to let you make the move. You beat the game if you get them to physically respond and then you get graded on how well you did, and how quickly.

This game teachers us absolutely nothing, pardon me for saying  this…but this could lead to a virtual sex addiction. This game is a more innocent version of a particular scene in Assassins Creed. In the beginning of the game  as a player you are faced with a female in your tracks, you have to continuously press “A” in order to rape her, and then you leave her behind. This type of sexual violence can not be healthy in any form.

While I played Sweaty Palms I got my date to hold my hand and was graded proficiently. But, I feel less than accomplished. Some of the reasons why people see this game beneficial is so people can get past pre-date jitters. But pardon my hesitation for believing that this helps in any way.

Some things are supposed to be experienced to understand, and well others…lets face it, we can not really shoot Nazi zombies in real life. I do believe that video games can be  beneficial, because a lot of the concepts are educational. But, some people do not realize the difference between video games and real life. I do not go around eating mushrooms so I can get a speed boost or randomly hit people with shells.
