Spaghetti bolognese is a delicious meal. Really delicious. A staple in any diet. The Italians really had the right idea when they decided to drop this stunner.

However, it’s a terrible and messy idea to eat hearty handfuls of spaghetti bolognese while you’re gaming. You’ll get the spaghetti bolognese all over your gaming tools, making them very greasy.

They may smell like a gourmet Italian restaurant now, but in a few hours they won’t be. Nonna strongly advises against this. NO gamer food.

There are many reasons why you should not drink a boiling hot glass of milk while gaming. First, bah!

If you drink this boiling hot glass of milk while investing in a session of Euro Truck Simulator you could burn your gamer hand, which you need for gaming. If it burns your tongue, you can spit it out to your gamer monitor, leaving the on-screen trucks in a hot milky mess.

While I personally recommend drinking a lone glass of milk while gaming, I say with full confidence that a boiling hot glass of milk is NOT a gamer’s drink.

Historically, this is the most gamer drink in existence.
