Silkroad: I meet a good game

These days, when I sit on the bus and go home or go to have my work, I will see an ad say that some animals in the film, I do not know it clearly, but I think it is a funny film because the animals in it can say some funny words. So I go to download the film in order to have a look at whether it is really funny.


Before I start to search the film, there is a ad come out in front of the film, I only see it said the silkroad gold with a large words. But I do not care much and close the screen. Then I continue my download. But soon it come out again, with a lot of curious, I open the website and come to have a look. It says that this is a good game and is easy to win a lot of game gold which can change to money. I was attracted by these words and want to have a try. So I do as the cue on the computer, but soon I find it needs to spend some money, I hesitated for a while, then I think I first spend a little money, if I lost it, I will not care. On the contrary, if I can win a lot of money back, I am so lucky. So I enter in the game and buy some sro gold as it says. I play the game on the one thing, on the other thing; I can download the film I want to see. I think it is a way of saving time.

When I just come to the game, it says welcome as the other screen, and then I buy some cheap weapons which look very funny. After that I come to go my silkroad as the name. With the help of the cue, I can easy to play it. And I soon win back some silkroad online gold to my account. I felt it is good and value to play. After a while, my film has finished downloading, I felt a little disappoint, but thinking that I can play the next time also, I came over the game and at the same time I have much more silk road gold than before.

With a lot of curious, I turned on the film and have a look. In it, it says that some animals in the zoo who are want to go back to the natural; they say their heart in the film. But to my surprise, they also want to play the game I just play, they all have some cheap silkroad gold in their pocket.

I think they have the same interests with me.

The colossal problem with universal basic income

Here's why universal basic income will hurt the 99%, and make the 1% even richer.

Videos
  • Universal basic income is a band-aid solution that will not solve wealth inequality, says Rushkoff.
  • Funneling money to the 99% perpetuates their roles as consumers, pumping money straight back up to the 1% at the top of the pyramid.
