Mahjong = Bad For Your Brain… Or Something Else.
Hi Kids. Zooloo here, alive again from the BOSCT crew to share an interesting news story.
In a recent study, the centuries-old Chinese game called mahjong can lead to seizures in a condition purportedly called mahjong epilepsy. Mahjong is a game that does require a great deal of thought, and the mental stresses of playing through a single session can be fairly high. Of course, we all know that in a traditional mahjong house, the smoking, drinking, often poor lighting conditions, lack of cleanliness, and the not-so-uncommon session that lasts several hours has nothing to do with developing a seizure.
Nope, not at all.
Lest we forget the fact that losing your stakes usually results in an unhappy,
suicidal and/or murderous stressful state of mind. So beware, fellow readers, play mahjong at your own risk.
Think of the kids, and Billy.
