So if you can see that, i'm sure you can see why it would be detrimental to, as you say: "replace my current world with a digital one "

Right, I think I better explain. When I replace a real world with a digital one, it's for the glory, not for the passive conversation. It's for the massive battling, the blood and the grit in your teeth then restarting to do it all over again. It for the being able to troll like you're able to online, except, well, not online. And well, that's just one aspect. Loads of reasons to replace a real world with a digital one.
Conversation is not one of them. There are more reasons, lots of them, they're not just limited to forums and this subject matter.
That doesn't make it healthy, but it makes it less desperate.
Your asking us to attack people on the basis that they spend to much time having fun. Surely you can see how flawed that is?
No, I'm asking you to attack them on the basis that they think that any time spent online is wasted time.
You've been sorely misinformed. Intensive cardiovascular exercise is one of the most challenging things that we can participate in.

I looked it up. It's mainly exercising the leg muscles. I can see why that'd be hard, but I've been doing that for a while - a long while. Didn't know it, but looking at the examples I can compare them and see why I find it pretty easy.
I used to go for4k jogs in the cold night air at the start of this year - not really competitive, still took about an hour and a half, going pretty hard at it. Though I haven't done it in a while, the leg muscles remain, which is why I find running pretty easy - they're pretty big muscles. My previous times while exercising, it was always the lower body - soccer, running, skipping (well, jump-rope), even mountain-bike riding, twas always exercising the lower body. Been doing it for a while, I can see that now, although I had no idea it was cardiovascular exercise.
I was worse then misinformed. I assumed it. That was pretty stupid. But any strength I contain, it's lower body - and while it's fairly satisfying to be able to swell up your leg muscles fairly big, it's even more satisfying to do the same to your arms, as I'm finding out.
I'll find a balance. "Moderation in Everything", you know? I'm pretty damn lucky.
oh yeah, baby, check out those leg muscles.
Thanks for making me check up on it, even if I did make myself look like an idiot.
As for the rest of you, to clear it up, what they're saying is that spending 30 minutes to 1.5 hours here a day is wasted. Which is something else entirely. I wouldn't shun life in favour of the internet, but I wouldn't shun the internet solely at the demand of life, you understand? I love both of them, they're both big parts of my life, even if I do tend to favour one over the other at times.
They're saying that my extended commitment here should be shunned in favour of.. .well, they didn't even say what. They just clung to their "wasted" lines.
