How to improve The Walking Dead
I love The Walking Dead and I’ve watched every episode.
The reason I watch the show is not because I think is good but because I want it to be good.
From season one I’ve being expecting the show to revolve around how society will be after the zombie apocalypse but instead it’s been all about how people from different ethnic backgrounds treat each other.
I’m very positive that The Walking Dead is finally going to be the show we are waiting for after the producers read this article.
The Walking Dead has run out of Red shirts and that’s an improvement per se.
It’s stupid that the screenwriters keep throwing out insignificant characters instead of messing with the important ones.
With Jimmy and Patricia dead they are now out of easy people to kill.
I think about the writers like myself after a hard day at work when I grab everything I could possibly need, phone, laptop, remote and a drink to avoid getting up from the couch for the next couple of hours.
That’s what they did at the start of every season, they collected and arranged their Red shirts and they lazily punctuate a scene with a meaningless death whenever they needed it.
The show had Shane survive two full seasons and that was a mistake.
He was cast as the antihero and as much as woman may love him, watching his descent from amoral to evil just wasn’t absorbing.
The writers divided the Rick character into Rick and Shane rather than having one single character wrestle with opposing moral concepts.
Now that Shane is dead they’ve no choice but to make Rick actually grow as a character.
Dale is dead, and that’s good because Dale was really boring.
For me he was just an excuse for the writers to tell instead of show.
Now that he’s gone, with him went the pro bandit sermons and voting sessions making room for more actual zombies in a show that it supposed to be about zombies.
In the future if the show still needs a moral center Hershel can do it.
Convenient burdens only exist as easy plot devices to put the group in trouble when it gets boring.
Now that they’ve finally gave Carl his own gun it is the end of the helpless child lost plot lines.
Convenient burdens complicate so much around before achieving the original purpose that they end up not working for the show.
Now there’s only one left, Carol.
There is no possible worst location for any show.
Even farming shows would be better served with more interesting set pieces.
Literally anything is more interesting than a plain old ordinary farm.
The Walking Dead spent approximately five hours showing the characters cleaning wells, fixing windmills, patching up fences and protecting cows.
It seems that the writers finally understand what they did wrong.
Relocating to the prison means the group is probably going to encounter prisoners and the new dilemmas that come with them.
This is the perfect time; the show is finally going to pull it together.
It took three full seasons of boredom and idiocy to get here but we’re finally here.
The Walking Dead has finally caught up with the first 10 minutes of any ordinary zombie movie.

Tips to improve your job performance
Before became a successful writer I also spent a lot of time working in offices like you so here I left some great tips for being a successful worker.
First and most important: Fill your cubicle with personal crap as much as possible.
Science has proved that having control over one small, insignificant, utter irrelevant aspect of your life improves your productivity.
The brain has a mechanism that self convinced that is a sign of power deciding whether to hung a picture of Madonna or ACDC on your desk.
Faceless corporations keep us almost all day prisoners of their offices like sardines in a can, but we’ll still feel independent as long as they allow us to hang a stupid motivational poster in the cube.
The second tip is alcohol.
Get drunk at work every time you see the opportunity, it will help you out relax and get your job easily done.
Alcohol improves creativity and concentration skills.
Third tip, follow you guts.
If you are a night person then ask to change your shift to the night one, which will make you a better worker because your mind and body are programmed to perform better at night.
The same rule applies if you are a morning person. With a lot less coolness but it works.
Everybody has different body clocks and there is no need to go against that, nature knows best.
Giving all the employees the same shift is as smart as hiring all people named Steven to save money in name tags.
Another important tip is gum.
Chewing gum motivates the ones surround you and also allows your brain cells to keep in movement even when you are performing repetitive tasks.
Gum is like meth for your brain, and we all know that meth doesn’t have any negative side effects.
In a study where subjects were given demanding cognitive tasks to perform with or without gum, the people with gum performed better in every single category except verbal fluency.
Chewing jump starts your brain for a solid 2 hours time frame and allows you to handle stress and distraction far better.
Of course an important trick to improve your productivity is take more vacations and days off from work.
Research shows that taking longer vacations and leaving early every day to go home and take a nap make you a better employee and increase your company productivity.
Rest, relaxation, and the sensation that your soon doing something that you like improve your mood, which boosts productivity and focus.
Your overall contentment with your life and existence makes you a happier individual so your blood flows all around your brain.
And last but not least keep always a bad mood.
By showing up at work every day with a very bad attitude you will ruin everyone’s mood and damage the morale and productivity of the entire office and by doing that your performance will shine.
People with shitty moods are great at concentration and working under pressure.
And if you work really hard, you can slide right from the intolerable asshole to the general manager of any global corporation.
Remember, always listen and believe the voice inside your head.
That one saying that it doesn’t matter if you don’t have to visit people anymore or to enjoy a drink at home with that friend you really like.
It doesn’t really matter if the only conversations you have is with coworkers and that you don’t have company to watch a movie or your favorite TV series
You don’t need company when you are at home, you don’t need to laugh, you don’t need to visit friends and you don’t even need to have friends; the only thing that you really need is being successful at your job.

Videogames are healthier than play with kids
In the recent years we encountered some articles indicating that videogames are not healthy so is time to clarify and explain that videogames are a path to smarter and gentler people.
Researchers have found that playing video games including violent shooter titles boost children’s learning, health and social skills.
Playing violent shoot them up games such as Call of Duty enhances creativity and interpersonal abilities.
Playing with other kids could be risky given that sometimes we can’t control how clean they are and we cannot select the most intelligent ones to allow them to play with our owns.
On the other side videogames increase concentration, visual abilities, hand eye coordination and fuel your imagination, it inspires you. Playing videogames on a daily basis also gives you better reflexes, sharpens your instincts and improve problem solving skills and the mind’s ability to process information.
Video games cause also personal benefits because people who spend too much time sitting while playing video games don’t get into socializing much and therefore they avoid any kind of discussion or misunderstanding.
They keep a perfect record on their relationships and everybody is always willing to welcome them since they don’t usually appear in the social sphere.
True friendships last forever and the basement of true friendship is not bothering each other and if you play too much video gaming you’ll never be the super bored person that stays longer than needed at friend home.
If you want to have healthier relationships you should at least play 5 or 6 hours a day video games to enjoy a balanced, well rounded social life.
Playing with other people instead of video games led to depression, anxiety and inhibited social development.
If you are smart enough you can always win playing with other people and on video games you always find another level, another challenge to keep improving and that it what makes you a better person.
Video games are a place where you learn failure because you can lose a game and since failure is part of life there is why videogames are much healthier than playing with real kids, because videogames reflects real life.
Playing video games gives you the confidence to be anything you want, you can be a hero who saves the world, or a villain who destroy it and that it was life is all about.
Video games had distinct effects on the brain because achieving a high score requires players to react quickly, while processing information in their peripheral vision, multi-tasking, making predictions and processing the constant player feedback.
Individuals who play games at least 2 hours per day are better than non-gamers at rapidly processing complex information, estimating numbers of objects, controlling where their attention is focused and switching rapidly between tasks.
They are also better able to identify distraction and quicker to return their focus to the main task and at ignoring irrelevant, distracting visual information and made better decisions.
Playing video games lead to beneficial brain changes and consequently affect our behavior positively.
A study held in the US and Japan concludes that the children are more likely to help others in real life or in simulated tasks if they play video games at least 3 hours a day.
Videogames also affect children’s sense of empathy since they don’t have to play with kids with a different mental level, the video game level itself with the kid intelligence so they always find it interesting.
Kids that play with other real kids are always more violent that kids that only play videogames as they become better at noticing the feelings and reactions of others.
Playing games offer us an opportunity to take greater control over the shaping of our own minds and brains.
We are moving forward to most parents wanting their children to be educated by videogames and to discover how games can be the better teachers we can harness.
Let’s wish and hope that in the immediate future gaming will become the universal path for education, not school.
