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.

In the past when scholars have reflected on the psychological impact of dementia they have frequently referred to the loss of the "self" in dramatic and devastating terms, using language such as the "unbecoming of the self" or the "disintegration" of the self. In a new review released as a preprint at PsyArXiv, an international team of psychologists led by Muireann Irish at the University of Sydney challenge this bleak picture which they attribute to the common, but mistaken, assumption "that without memory, there can be no self" (as encapsulated by the line from Hume: "Memory alone… 'tis to be considered… as the source of personal identity").
