The best hot wings recipe I ever had was when I was visiting New Orleans, Louisiana in the fall of 2010. I am a freelance journalist and travel for my work. While interviewing a student about their educational careers attending Tulane University I was told about this wonderful little bistro just outside of the tourist district and French Quarter. I found it in the heat of the afternoon located exactly where the student had lead me.
It turned out to be this little tavern located in, what looked like, the middle of nowhere. It was like stepping out of New Orleans and into the heart of what Louisiana really is. They had live music, darts and everything that a good hometown tavern should have. Even the breeze that came through the doors and windows was part of the perfect atmosphere, as if they had piped it in.
I ordered the hot wings and a few minutes later I was presented with a plate of the most perfect hot wings I had ever tasted. Of course, I asked for the recipe and w...

Are there mounting negative consequences to your behavior? If playing your addicting game is causing you to lose sleep, miss work or school, or destroy important relationships, then you are addicted to you addicting game. If you are not suffering these devastating negative consequences, it might be more appropriate to call your addicting games your absorbin...
