i hear it's good


If you mean the Telltale Walking Dead Game (I only played the first episode, because it was free for a short time), it was pretty excellent. Sadly, the choices in the game don't really seem to change much, from what I've seen.

If it's the other game, I haven't played it, but I've from what I've heard, it's pretty bad.

The other game is called The Walking Dead: Survival Tactics, and people said it was actually bad.

I played the 1st Episode of TWD (Free-to-play on PSN) and it was really good. The decisions I made were difficult to make, made me think pretty fast and some I actually regret. Want to continue the episodes but am broke as of right now.

Assuming the TellTale game then yes.

Then again the majority of games that gives you choices have this problem.

Anyone know any good soothing classical music? Something with a violin maybe... Dunno, just feel in the mood to listen to some while staring up at the stars.

God, sometimes I do miss living out in the boonies just for the stars.

I think that answers the question.

If you're into contemporary classic, I'd really recommend Balmorhea.
Other people I recommend:
Yann Tiersen
Rene Aubry
Zoe Keating
Shira Kammen (kudos if you recognize the song)
Jami Sieber

Wow.

Ok, how would you suggest a right handed person like me switch to my left hand?

My right hand is becoming progressively weaker, and it's troublesome.

You can't really learn it. You can certainly become functional in your other hand, but you'll always be right-handed.

Otherwise you just have to force a switch. Your brain fine-tunes motor neurons with the right-hand in mind, so if you switch hands you basically have to learn the motions all over again even if you already understand the concepts (e.g. writing).

I don't know what you mean by weaker though. That seems like a larger issue that shouldn't be addressed by simply switching hands.

Meaning my grip and overall hand strength is growing weaker.

It's slightly frightening

You certainly wouldn't help that by switching hands. There's little things you can get to strengthen your grip.

Oh, I know, I've been trying a large amount of stress toys and things to strengthen my grip, but I've seen little improvement.

So what's confirming to you that your grip is getting weaker? It could just be psychosomatic.

However some quick Googling said it could be a result of pressure on the nerves in your wrist. Are you using your wrists a lot? Are you not typing in the recommended way?

As an industrial designer i was required to take a course about safety measures in the work place... there are many lesions that weaken your grip and there is no pain... switching hands is just addint stress to the other hand and not taking care of the problem, its just a lame work around an easily solved issue.

Nah, it's just been getting weaker.

It's quite weird. My left hand has pretty strong grip strength, but my right is weak.

Come to think of it, it's also slightly numb compared to leftie.

D:

oh wow the mirror just keeps coming back to haunt me.

I thought I fixed it, too.

So does this mean that'll it keep getting weaker?
