Any member can log into their Adventurer's Log and see exactly how much time they have been spent playing Runescape. For some it might be a few days. For some, it might be a decent chunck of a year (or years!).

What would you have done with that time had you used it all on another activity, and what do you think the results would have been?



I could have spent all that time posting on another forum (before it died.) I was averaging 100 posts every 6 hours there when I was really active, so, in the time that I've played Runescape, I could have posted 89600 messages! (And I STILL wouldn't beat out the top poster!)

I could also have spent the time counting from 1 to infinity. By the time I had used up my Runescape time, I'd of reached 19,353,600.

One last thing I could have done was knock on people's doors and run away. I'm sure that I'd of been able to hit every house in Florida.
The challenge of a mistake is not to avoid it. The challenge of a mistake is dealing with the outcome.



Proud of who I am and what I am.

Hmm.
Well, if Runescape never existed, I'd probably be fluently speaking Japanese by now.

Moving this to Questionnaires.

I'd have probably ended up playing another MMOG or some other random games. Either that or I'd be fan following a ton of TV series, which would be less productive than playing Runescape.

It's great you know what you're talking about rustiod. Everything you've said is 100% accurate a true.

That being said...your a [bleep]ing [bleep] douchebag, and none of your advice will ever (or should ever) be taken seriously because of it.

disregard good advice because the giver is a douche

THAT MAKES YOU A BETTER PERSON

Dunno. I usually get everything out the way before I start playing.

Hangout with my friends more?

Hanging out with my friends alot more which consequently means smoking and drinking alot more, so maybe not such a good thing.

5,544 hours of play time.

Perhaps I could have done better in school, studying more and gaming less.
Perhaps I could have made more friends, more time outside than in.
Perhaps I could have pursued my hobbies, more there than here.
Perhaps I could have found love, within rather than without.

After all this I think to myself; at least I don't play WoW.

I'd have at least 100% completion on every other game I own. That includes Oblivion.
Or I'd have just got lost in Tv Tropes for a good 5,000 hours... Which is possible

Not do crap in school and have friends. Probably would have a bigger interest in art too.
