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.

  1. Mahjong would be so much cooler if every once in a while you saw some old dude in a park playing a game with another old dude get up and yell “Mahjong, motherfucker!” and slam a tile down.

    This would probably cause the other old guy to have a seiz-…hey!

  2. Screw the children, will someone think of the geriatrics?

  3. Mahjong can hurt you and your love ones.
