I imagine a few of the responses I’d get would be something like: “One works your muscles, one works your hand/eye coordination, and one works your liver.” “It’s advisable to avoid combining all three (picture a drunk person playing Kinect Adventures).” “What are you talking about? Leave me alone, psycho, I’m trying to work.”
