Lessons learned from Skyrim
Some lessons I have learned from Skyrim.

Burn your dead. You never know when granny is gonna come back and attack little Jimmy. This might scar him for life.

Its ok to despoil the environment. As I was ripping the wings off the last butterflies at one of the scenic areas of Skyrim; it dawned on me that I could come back later and the area would be ok. This was after I kllled or collected everything that walked , crawled, or swam in the area. Mining doesn't hurt anything. I even took a crap in a stream after throwing dead bodies in the water for good measure.
So the same thing must be true in RL.

You can swim with no problem in artic water with full metal armour on. No problem. I always wanted to try this, so I am booking an Alaskian cruise.

What have you learned from Skyrim, and how will you apply it to your real life?

Killing somebody and then pay the equivalent of 40 gold so you won't have to go to jail.

I will make sure now to carry a two handed Axe in my car... so that when someone gets in my way, I will decapitate them, they'll just respawn, right?

I learned that people get really really upset when you kill their chicken

I learned that even if I become the most awesome person in the world, there's always going to be that one ♥♥♥♥ that doesn't think I get to the Cloud District very often.

You have a Real Life Cloud District in the neighborhood ?

I cannot tell if you are being serious. Is Cloud District something common in America ?

Well considering the price of gold... Let's say a septim is about the size of a US quarter. 5.67g and $41.65 per gram of gold. That values one septim at $236.1555 and $9,446.22 for 40 septims.
Now that all isn't too accurate because gold would weigh more than a quarter and there's also the purity of the gold to take into account. But it's a good figure to look at for this discussion.

Do you have about ten grand to slap down for murder? If so you could probably just pay someone else to do it for you. If not I guess your plan is ruined. Now god forbid you just straight up murder them in one hit and get caught and have to pay the 1,000 gold fine because... Well...
You're looking at $236,155.50 USD.

Good luck.

I meant the equivalent of 40 skyrim gold. That will buy you what ? 40 saltpiles, or 20 bread ?
To kill some one for the price of a package of salt, I can go for that.

*I learned that it's a wonderful day with me around, so I'll be around more often.
*I learned that I don't get to the cloud district very often, that must mean I'm going to hell.
*I learned that the Khajiit has wares, if I have the coin. Because if the Argonian has wares, and I don't have the coin, that must mean that he still has wares. Unlike the Khajiit. I don't know how I'm going to apply this to my everyday life, but I guess I'll just continue paying for stuff with currency.
*I learned that nobody else in the world will ever purchase anything. This'll be useful when I want to get the last item.
*I learned that sweet roll theft apparently causes a great deal of agony, and is worthy of getting you an insult. I'll stop stealing sweet rolls.
*I learned that the only way to help is to grab an axe and start chopping.
*I learned that Jeremy Soule is always following you around composing a soundtrack.
*I learned that if I ever kill someone im public unnoticeably, to just leave the body there. Because if no one saw it, no one will bother trying to find out who did it. Nor will they move it. I can just loot whatever I want whenever I want from the body anytime too.
*I learned that praying to your God won't help you learn how to fight better. But praying to that other one will, so I'll just pray to him for a while until I need to learn how to steal better. Then I'll pray to the other God. Oh, and if I ever get bit by a spider, just pray. It'll go away.
*I learned that I no longer have absolutely any reason to eat, deficate, drink, urinate, or sleep.

Putting on an amulet makes virtual strangers want to get married, and everyone is bisexual.

Yes they are and quite fatal if you dont watch your footing. I love how the mountain climbing was done in SKYRIM reminds me a bit of climbing dungeon walls when playing DAGGERFALL.

I have learned that messing with ones monitor settings can really alter the look of SKYRIM to the point where it feels like am playing a modded game on a different monitor. Was fooling around with the angle settings on my Samsung SyncMaster E1920 after putting it on standing mode i was flabbergasted with visual bliss at how spectacular my modless SKYRIM looked. Night actually looks like night and everything is rich with color as if I was using a ENB mod.

I also got the same results for FALLOUT 3 and NEW VEGAS. Seems beauty will always find a way to seep into the masterpieces of Bethesda :D

Eating a lot of raw cabbages and potatoes will make you always feel better... and not give you gas
