Parents Are Now Hiring Video Game Tutors For Their Kids

When we were kids, our parents would scream at us to stop playing video games and get back to our math homework.  Today?  Parents are screaming at their kids to put down their math homework and get back to video games.

Believe it or not, some parents have started hiring VIDEO GAME TUTORS to help their kids.  The tutors can run around $20-an-hour, and they’ll help your kids get better at the biggest games right now . . . especially “Fortnite”.

So what would possibly possess parents to hire a video game coach for their kids?  There are three main reasons . . .

1.  Helping their kid improve at “Fortnite” improves their social life.  One parent told the “Wall Street Journal”, quote, “There’s pressure not to just play [a game] but to be really good at it.”

2.  Kids are more obsessed with video games than ever, so their parents want them to be really good at something they love that much.  So in that way, it could be like when your parents got you, say, horseback riding lessons.

3.  And with the rise of e-sports, if a kid gets good ENOUGH, maybe they could go pro at video games and make real money.

 

Can You Tell Which Lyrics Were Written By Taylor Swift, and Which Were Generated by a Computer?

 

  Some people think TAYLOR SWIFT’s lyrics are a little . . . shall we say . . . formulaic.  But are they SO formulaic that a COMPUTER could write them?

A group of data scientists fed ALL of Taylor’s lyrics into some sort of A.I. contraption, and then asked it to write some new lines for her.  And they ended up with some lyrics that really aren’t that far-fetched.

Here are a few of them, interspersed with LEGIT Taylor Swift lyrics.  Can you tell the difference?

 

 

1.  “Wednesday is a wound around the corner.”

 

2.  “The way you move is like a full-on rainstorm.”

 

3.  “I wore your tee in the morning and love at night.”

 

4.  “‘Cause you were Romeo, I was a scarlet letter.”

 

5.  “I stay out too late, got nothin’ in my brain.”

 

6.  “It’s time because you wanna be far from town.  Let’s roll this night.”

 

7.  “‘Cause we’re young and we’re reckless, we’ll take this way too far.”

 

8.  “We’re starry-eyed hipsters and wannabe players.”

 

9.  “She’s there always, like Jesus.”

 

10.  “The world moves on, another day, another drama, drama.”

 

11.  “So know that everything falls, but it’s worth it now that we’re in flames.”

 

12.  “It’s true she’ll write whatever is fair.”
