Today, my mother gave me hell for my "video game addiction". The "game" in question? A professional flight simulator program that I'm using to complement my flight school lessons. FML

Tell her to quit her comPLANEing.

Try explaining to her the purpose behind it. Surely she'll understand once she knows why you are on it so much.

Quit playing games and get a real job.

That's kind of the point of the simulation, genius.

Surely it can help for some stuff like learning to work with navigation instruments or maybe interacting with the ATC

#15 your name fits perfectly with this situation ?

I could do the same with WASD it's not the same as a real plane

No, but it's to familiarize yourself with the general controls. They even have drivers ed simulators now, no it isn't the same as a real car, but you learn the basics of the car.

I wouldn't waste the time #47. can't cure stupidity

I almost gave you a thumbs up, but you put plane in caps.

You have to understand some people here don't understand common sense things like irony, puns, sarcasm , etc- I enjoyed your wittiness . ! Plus one a a internet cookie sir!

The amount of cheesy jokes on FML's comment section, is TOO DAMN HIGH!

Some people just have their heads in the clouds when it comes to recognising a pun.

I doubt it would have gotten very far without the caps. I just typed it how I would have said it in real life.

For some reason, probably because it's really late and I'm tired, I read the FML as 'fight' instead of 'flight' so this whole thing confused me until I had to revise to the FML again. I then face-palmed at my stupidity.

Geez mom! You cannot pause an online game!

that would be hell for evreyone

How adorably naive.

Parents of the previous generation(s) are less understanding of our pervasive admiration of virtual games. They can't relate to it, so naturally they can't see why our generation finds so much satisfaction from it. Every video game has a benefit, but that doesn't really convince parents. So no, she will not "surely" understand. She may, possibly, have a minimal understanding.

You guys didn't have to flight about it.

sometimes older people have to have the newer technologies explained, and they have to want to understand them.

did you at least win ;)

You can't win in realistic simulation games.

It's NOT video game #12!!!!!

That's the joke...
