The Scooter or how video games are helpful.



This is me on my scooter.
My wife and I lived in Taiwan for two years.  While there our main mode of transportation: The Scooter.  Let me just say this, driving a scooter in Asian traffic is as scary and dangerous as it sounds.  "Worry about the things in front of you." That is the best advice ever given to me. Luckily I escaped the two years with only one major accident.  The thing that prepared me more than anything was Video Games.  Yes, no joke.  I am very adamant about this too. IF ANYONE....ever claims that there are no benefits to video games then let's see them drive a scooter.  If I hadn't spent years learning how to avoid things. Learning how to find the pattern and get through it. Honing the reflexes I would need to defy death. Then I never would have had the ability to drive The Scooter.  The Scooter is liking straddling a mini ship to weave through asteroids. Except the asteroids are crazy taxi drivers who are out defy the laws of how a taxi can be driven. I do miss the scooter. Despite the danger. It was my little spaceship that you become one with.  Like a modern day cowboy and his horse.....
