An Unusual Cure For PTSD

This is a cool use of neurobiological common sense. It does, however, run the risk of swamping the VA with veterans suffering a different kind of stubborn memory. There were weeks of my youth when I considered prying the Korobeiniki song out of my head with a sharpened spoon.

If you’re desperate, try the Eurythmics.

    If you ask me, Tetris proves the Soviets were the really winner of the cold war.
    I can’t count the hours I wasted on that game.

    That damn game gave me PTSD. I can still hear the music every time I try to sleep.

    My daughters got Mama Mia for Christmas, so now it’s "Voulez Vous" followed by "Dancing Queen" and then "Mama Mia" and around and around. Argh.

    I was horribly addicted to Tetris. It’s the main reason I stay far away from things like WOW. I might get sucked in . . .

    I still play Tetris for hours over at FreeTetris.org. I’ve never reached my former scoring ability though.

    Complaint: the hyperlinks on the new page are too indistinct from the regular text. If I were color blind I wouldn’t be able to see them at all.

    I think I would prefer a six-hour dose of ecstasy to six hours of Tetris.

    Except that the Tetris is prophylactic, whereas the MDMA is used to treat people who already have PTSD.

    I’ll take the tetris.
